    I grew up with a Collie named Elsa and in the many years since have become close friends with Maggie, Phoebe, Molly, Mazie, Max, Lacy, Clover and other dogs who have lived in the families of my friends. I love to walk (being very much like a dog in that respect) and I love spending time with dogs. I look forward to going on some great walks with your best friend.

    Hello, my name is Robert and I have been working with dogs for the last year and a half at a dog hotel. While there I’ve been taught how to work with dogs and have worked with many different breeds. I have a Labrador/Jack russel mix and believe me, he is a bundle full of energy. I look forward to getting to know your pup and making sure he has a fully interactive and healthy walk. My ultimate goal is to make sure he/she is well excercised and a happy dog.

    Hello! I’m Rob! I walk the dogs you need walking. There are several reasons to select me as your dog walker. A winning personality, a fearless dedication to observing cross streets only at appointed junctions AND at appointed times and general consonance.

    “They call me the dog whisperer!”

    Hello! My name is Jamie Shriner and I am a dog lover originally from Northwest Indiana. I have over 8 years experience as a dog sitter as well as a nanny, including work with my local animal shelter to re-socialize abused and traumatized dogs. Many pet parents have expressed concerns about their dog “not liking outsiders,” and I have always been able to ultimately gain the dog’s trust. I look forward to getting in your pup’s good graces and providing them excellent care!

    Is your pup ready for the best walk ever? I'm Nando from the Oaklawn area and I'm here to give you pup the best experience ever. Your pups will be treated like members of the family. I'll make sure they get walked at least a mile. If time left over we'll play catch in the yard. I also reward all good pups with treats. Don't settle for just any Walker. Are your pups ready to walk with the Nando bear?

    I love dogs! I know most profiles say that but I really do. They are loyal, smart, fun loving energetic and also wonderful friends. I treat my pets like members of the family. And I will gladly treat yours like family. I have been around pets my whole life. I also volunteered at WSHS for 4 years, so I have lots of hands-on experience with different breeds of dogs. I currently have a German shepherd-pit mix of my own. I look forward to working with you and your dog.

    Hi! My name is Ivane and I was born and raised in Chicago with two family dogs and two cats. I have always loved animals and currently have one best friend, his name is Albere. He's a Wheaton coat Irish Wolfhound and such a lap dog. I feel confident I can walk any size pup after training my own little giant. My best job ever was being a kennel technician back in 09' at the ACS animal shelter in downtown. I also took a few veterinary technician courses at Fox college. I am looking forward to meeting and getting plenty of exercise and fun in the sun with your furever friend!
