    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.

    “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!

    “Excited to walk your furry friends! :)”

    I have a long history of dog walking and care experience. I love big dogs that are able to run and be active, however I appreciate small dogs as well! I am a runner so enjoy taking dogs on runs if they are big enough or you are comfortable with that. I like playing with dogs however they feel comfortable, and generally can become a dog’s friend quickly and gain their trust. I know the importance of a dog trusting it’s caregiver/walker in order to create a positive experience for them.

    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!

Covering 159 acres of land and beaches, this dog-friendly park and beach is a leashed-only site, and pups are not permitted in the humans' designated swimming areas. However, the park has allotted 2 dog beaches on the Lake Street Beach , so your furry friend can take a refreshing dip in Lake Michigan on leash with you. Marquette Park also includes open picnic areas, a large lawn, lagoons, and fishing, all of which your pup can explore with you. Take a walk to Patterson Island over one of two foot bridges for the truly adventurous! There’s so much to see and do here!

This extremely popular park features the Lake Etta’s Trail that contains about two miles of hard surface surrounding the playground, and another half mile through natural wetlands. Additional trails near the swimming and fishing lakes lead to the Little Calumet River. Take your woofer for an afternoon of strolling the trails, followed by a sit in one of the picnic shelters where you can grill your favorite foods and share them with Fido. Park users with dogs must keep them leashed, and there are a few areas where pups are not permitted, so watch for signs.
