    I love animals and have been around them my whole life. I grew up on a farm and have never been without at least one pet of my own. In 2003 I left my previous job to pursue working with animals full time and I’ve never looked back! My husband and I have fostered over 80 dogs from Lake Shore Animal Shelter since then, and we also have a beautiful tortoiseshell cat of our own named Suki.

    Hi, I'm Mitch. I grew up in Chicago with a Labrador Retriever named Bailey. I have worked as a dog walker in Logan Square, which has given me a lot of hands on experience working and interacting with a variety of dogs! In my free time I enjoy writing, making films, and watching Bulls basketball. I can't wait to start walking your dogs.

    Hi, I’m located in Logan Square and parent to a nine year old rescued pit bull, and in the past have been foster parent to rescued dogs while they were awaiting placement in their forever homes. I love all kinds of dogs, big, small, and in between, and have a particular fondness for pit bulls and other bully breeds, because they’re so cute and sweet!

    ​Hi, I'm Jamie! I have experience dog walking and sitting for many different breeds, old and young, big and small. I take the health and safety of the dogs I work with seriously. To be the best walking companion for your dog, I have done extensive research on safe dog walking tips and techniques, and the various types of collars and harnesses to ensure your dog remains safe and healthy while they are in my care.​

    The Park District of Forest Park, IL, is just over five miles from Westchester and offers plenty of outdoor adventures for you and your dog to go mutts for! Here, you can choose from one of two dog parks, both of which are super pupular in the area! Forest Park Dog Park is fully fenced and has cushy mulch for your dog to play in. But, you’ll likely love the new Miller Meadow Off-Leash Dog Area, located within the Miller Meadow Forest Preserve. This park has luscious grass, fencing to let your pup run unleashed, and plenty of space for him to socialize, play, and let out some energy.
