Erica Cissne, Owner

“The Corgi” (Fun, strong willed, and playful)

Erica started Pawty Time Philly in October of 2015. At the time she was working as a medical professional, but in pursuit of her long time dream of owning a dog walking and pet care company. Her passion grew stronger while she volunteered in shelters, and fostered animals. She juggled her medical career, and Pawty Time Philly for a few months.

Finally in January 2016, Erica took on Pawty Time Philly full time. It was time for her to take her caring spirit that she used to help people, and put that towards her passion for animals. Since then she has taken almost 100 different dogs on thousands of walks. Each and every animal is special to Erica which gives her the motivation to be the best at her job.

The beautiful dog in the photo with Erica is her rescue dog Babs. She was the true inspiration behind Pawty Time Philly.
