    “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.

    I love dogs, and have been around my whole life. Currently, my wife and I have three rescue dogs, and are involved in fostering and boarding all types of dogs. My wife was on the board of a dog rescue, so I have been exposed to all sorts of dogs and have learned much about dog behavior, body language, and safe handling. I have a calm personality, and dogs take well to me, even those who normally don't trust men.

    My name is Brian and I have lived in Chicago my whole life. I really enjoy spending time with animals and dogs are my absolute favorite. I grew up having a dog and have many friends and family who have dogs who I have pet sat. I know what it takes to own and properly care for a dog and believe that all the work is worth it. Dogs are wonderful companions to take on walks and I have found that they motivate me to explore the city more and enjoy being outstide.

    My name is Tanisha, I am 43 years old and have had animals for at least 4o years of my life. I have had dogs and cats all my life and yes mom made me the sole care giver most of the time! LOL but I loved every minute of caring for my fur babies. They are my heroes because they are so loving and loyal, they care about you honestly even if you are not loyal to them, (which would be terrible if not), I love them they take care of me and I take care of them.

    “I hope my cat doesn't get jealous!”

    Hi guys! I have own several pets; two cats and four dogs.One of the best feelings as a pet owner/sitter is knowing you are making a difference in that pet's day. Just to see them all happy,relaxed or just fed; gives me a humble satisfaction. I will be there every step of the way for your pets' needs; making sure your pet likes me and is comfortable with me.But don't take my word for it, you will see it through your pets behavior towards me.Finally, hope you and your pet(s) have a very bless day.

    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!
