    I currently own a 10 yr. old Dalmatian Mix (Bella) and 6 yr. old German Shepherd (Rex), and have had them both since they were puppies. I am experienced with the care it takes to train/raise a dog from the puppy phase to a full-grown companion! Everything that a pet owner can go through, I have gone through myself, so I feel very comfortable handling all types and sizes of dogs, and providing exceptional care when I get the opportunity to take your best friend for a walk/run! I can do walks in your neighborhood, drive them to a nearby dog park or play with them in your own home. What works best for you and your dog is my top priority! I hope to hear from you!

    I'm a lifelong dog owner and personal dog sitter. Taking out my dog for a nice hike in the forest is blissful. Fur babies just add a very special element into our lives.

    “Lover of all animals!!”

    Hi I'm Lisa! I have always loved pets and wanted to be a veterinarian when I was little. While I did not become a vet, I have always had cats and/or dogs in my home and even at some points a lizard, bird or hamster! I love being outdoors and walk pretty much every day, even in the snow and cold! I have a very handsome dog named Bailey who loves to play tug of war and get long belly rubs. I look forward to walking and caring for your beloved doggy and to giving them an awesome walking experience!

    “Compassionate care; honest and reliable service”

    Hi! I'm Susan and I've been an animal/nature lover all my life. Dogs have been a part of my family for the past 40 years along with fish and birds. We currently have two rescues, a chiweenie and a lab-shepherd, that are absolute joys. I can't imagine life without companion animals nor the beauty and peace that nature provides. As a Wag! walker, I’m committed to compassionate care and assuring pet safety as well as being respectful of your home and privacy. Kisses and belly rubs galore!

    I enjoy being around dogs. I realize how important they are to their owners and treat them with that in mind. Dogs are good for people to be around because they can have a calming affect on you. I have owned several dogs over the years and I’ve always look forward to seeing them when I get home. I know that I have always had an empathy towards dogs and I feel that is an important thing in caring for them.

    Hi, my name is Megan and I can't wait to meet your best buddy! I live in the Chicago-land area and have always loved all animals. I've been in the dog walking/sitting/training business since I was seven years old - my childhood canine companion was a Sheltie that won 10th place at the Indiana State Fair for obedience. I appreciate you letting me be a part of your dog's day and can't wait to meet them!

I can keep up with the younger and athletic dogs, but am very familiar with special needs and geriatric dogs, and love each and every one in between.
