I have had dogs mys entire life, all were large breeds except one small. I also provided dog care for those in temporary need of shelter and care. I believe a healthy diet and exercise is key for a happy dog. I have taken several dog training courses and know how to keep calm and show no fear around a dog who is barking or asserting dominance. I understand the different behaviors and traits in each breed and deal with each dog appropriately.

I'm Bianca, I've loved animals all my life and grew up surrounded by dogs and cats my entire life.My love of animals started at a very age and I knew I wanted to work with all types of animals when I got older. Before working with Wag! I pet sat and walked for my family, friends and neighbors. I'm reliable, discreet, I pay attention to your dog's needs, I love walks and I'm genuinely concerned about your dog. Families have described me as a responsible,kind and fun-loving person I love being a pet sitter/dog walker because it gives me the opportunity to meet and bond with so many new pets and their owners. I enjoy all the different personalities of our client's pets and it's rewarding when an animal loves seeing you when you walk in the door. I can assure you that I will treat your fur babies like they were my own, not only because I'm an animal lover, but because it's how I want my "babies" treated while I'm away. I above and beyond my duties as a dog walker and sitter.

Dog Walking in Crete

Crete is a pawsome village located in Will County. In fact, this place used to be called Wood’s Corner after the people that settled here in 1836, and it's one of the oldest spots near Chicago. For emergencies with your pup, there is one veterinary clinic in town, but you can find other animal hospitals in the surrounding areas, such as University Park and Chicago Heights.

For some fun in the sun with your furry friend, the Lincolnshire Park offers a pawsome walking path for a leisurely stroll. There is plenty of open grass here where you can play with your pooches favorite ball or Frisbee. For the kids, there is a playground, and there are benches where you can chill out and watch the world go by with your pup!

If you get hungry and fancy a bite to eat with your furry friend, you can stop at Culver’s. Here you can tuck into some good American Grub, such as burgers and steak. There are a few outdoor tables here where your pooch is welcome to join you. Just be sure someone can watch your dog while you order, as there isn’t table service available.
