    “A walked dog is a happy dog!”

    Hi there! My name is Shelli and I grew up having a dog as long as I can remember. I've had both big dogs and small dogs and loved them all. I currently have a lab heeler mix named Gary and he's not just a pet, he's family. I believe that a fit and healthy pet is a happy pet. I look forward to meeting your pet; making sure they are well cared for and safe during our time together and having a great walk together!

    “You love them, I walk them!”

    Hello dog owners! I am shaina, and I am here to help you. I have always had a passion for animals, and while I’m at school at ISU I often help out at the wishbone dog shelter. I am very familiar with a variety of dogs, and I fed, brushed, walked, and attended to the dogs at wishbone often. I also have a golden retriever of my own, so I am very comfortable with our furry friends. I would love to do whatever is best for you and your dogs.

    “Very Experienced in Animal Care”

    Hi my name is Kyle and I have many years of dog experience under my belt. I currently work at the Humane Society of Central Illinois where I deal with all different breeds and ages of dogs. I love walking the dogs at work and do extra walks for them daily to get them some enrichment while they are in our care. I have experience with most walking equipment setups. I love dogs and have dealt with all types of temperaments. Also at work I try to help dogs with their walking mannerisms.

    I am an actor based in New York City and craving some puppy love! I had a gorgeous golden retriever, Callie, for my whole childhood, and I definitely miss being around a pet. I have a few years of experience with dog-sitting different types of dogs, and I want to make each one feel equally loved and cared for. I know it can be difficult to leave your pet with someone else, so I promise treat them with nothing but love and positivity!

    My name is Jacob. I'm a student at Illinois State university, and have been working with and around dogs for a large part of my life. In 7th grade I started volunteering at a doggy daycare because my mom wouldn't buy me a dog of my own. Now, I do have a dog of my own, but still love working with all dogs. I've been a dog-lover since early childhood, despite my mild allergy to their dander.
