Nancy from Pets N Me cared for my dog for a few days it seemed her and my dog bonded so well I saw pics of them bonding when I ask for them i officially have a dog sitter thanks
Jeanne has been watching our dog for 7 years! She does a great job and is very accomodating, especially with last minute schedule changes sue to the airlines! Our dog loves to go to Jeanne's, and we can relax in knowing that our dog is being well-cared for and getting all the attention that she needs!
Entrusting Mr. Barkypants, my first-born son, to a dog walker is akin to how I imagine it might feel to someday entrust a less furry child of mine to a nanny: He/She sure as hell better be committed, conscientious, able to survive blizzards*, and love Mr. Barkypants as his/her own. Using this (perhaps slightly unreasonable) standard, I interviewed many, many dog walkers before I found Walks With Zara Chicago Dog Wlalkers, a dog walking company that Russell and his business partner own and operate. Though I haven't yet had to put them to the blizzard test*, it is clear that Russell is an excellent dog walker and human being. I feel strongly about not having just any random person walk Mr. Barkypants: I've witnessed how some walkers who work at larger operations treat (or rather mistreat) the 5-10 dogs they walk at once. Sadly, it doesn't seem uncommon for some dog walkers, on the north-side at least, to roughly yank leashes or yell and scream at dogs, or to refuse to stop walking to allow one of their charges to use the little dog's room, or to tie dogs up to a post in the park while the walker enjoys a cigarette and long chat with his friends. I am confident that Russell does NOT do this; Mr. Barkypants would probably behave very differently with him than he does. Interestingly, though Mr. Barkypants isn't terribly fond of strangers and he is particularly non-fond of strangers who are male and who wear hats, he took to the hat-wearing Russell like he took to liver treats from the first or second walk on. Russell has a gentle, quiet, calm, non-domineering manner with dogs (and humans, really). He isn't embarrassed about speaking to dogs in goofy voices -- a talent I quite appreciate. Moreover, wrt his human dealings, too, Russell is prompt and as honest as Abe: He lets us know when he isn't able to walk a full hour (because of severe weather or sickness) and deducts from his pay despite our asking him to take the full amount. Rates, by the way, are extremely reasonable for Chicago dog walking, especially since Mr. Barkypants gets Russell all to himself on walks. According to their website, Russell is bonded and insured as a dog walker and is a member of the Association of pet sitters. I can speak with knowledge about Russell's excellent credentials as a dog walker. He *will* treat your dogs with respect and patience -- or at least I'm pretty sure they will based on how they've treated my first born son. I can't recommend him enough.
I love any furry pet like it were my own. I am looking to expand my company with more furry friends, even if it's overnight or day care. Also, long and fun walk is a must!
I am new to this , but I love animals all shapes and sizes!
Hi. My name is Kyia Cameron. I would love to walk your dogs. I love dogs, and I have good experience. I can feed your dog.
I live in Chicago and do not mind traveling to locations for pet care. I love animals especially dogs and have not yet found a dog that does not like me. I am free to walk or dog sit from 10 in the morning to about four in the afternoon, Monday to Friday.
We are very willing to help take care of your dogs! We're experienced because we have dogs ourselves and we have taken care of dogs in the past.
I love animals and I have two of my own. I'm trying new careers to see if I can find myself better and choose what to study when I graduate high school.
We walk your dog when you are lazy. We have been around for two years now. Our motto is, "We walk your dogs till they can't wake any more".
Greetings, friend. I am Christopher, and I've been interacting with, caring for and training dogs (some rescue) for over a decade now. I take great pride in understanding an animal's body language, and I respect the animal's wishes always, as well as the owner's. I offer dog walking services, as well as pet sitting and general care and compassion.
I will pick up your dog, and we will go for walks. If there is a dog park which is not too far, we can go there too. I would love to have your dog socialize with other dogs, and people too, and let your dog do doggie things. If you have a toy for your dog, that would be great. Otherwise, I will bring my own frisbee, or other things which are suitable. I love to shower dogs as I was once a dog owner too!
I love taking care of dogs and providing them with what they need! I've been taking care of animals for over five years.
We are Chicagoland's premier dog walking company. Dogs Deserve It provides dog walking, pet sitting, and pet taxi services. DDI believes that an appropriately exercised dog is a much happier, trainable, and lovable pet. Thus, we put emphasis on energetic, purposeful, accountable exercise. This is called the Dogs Deserve It difference. About the Dogs Deserve It difference: Leash Etiquette -- All DDI walkers follow "leash etiquette" standards, teaching and reinforcing proper walking techniques and establishing boundaries. The dog is walked to these standards and the technique is shared with the owner. This means that DDI dogs do not aimlessly parade around city streets with limited direction, allowing the dog to pull on the leash and the walker to carry on a random cell phone conversation. Distance Tracking -- All DDI walkers wear a pedometer to track their walking time. There is no more guessing whether the dog has gone around the block or just out the door. DDI walks provide more than just an opportunity for daily output. Anecdotal notes left by the walker also include insight into behavioral and training issues. DDI is the first Chicago-based company to create an innovative walker tracking system. More Than Just a Walk -- DDI time with canine clients is interactive and purposeful. Owners report less anxiety, aggression, and other bad behavior from their canine companion. All these benefits are only available from our service.

I walk and sit dogs. I have a shepherd and a toy poodle of my own. I love dogs and have had dogs all my life.
I love animals!
I pick up the dogs from their houses and give them a walk for the time that's given me. I also play with them and walk them in a safe place. Then, I drop them off at their houses.
Dog walking services are provided locally. A 30-minute walk costs $10 for one dog. The second dog is free, as long as it will walk well with the first dog. My hours are from 5 A.M. to 7 P.M. I will walk dogs earlier or later for an additional charge. There is no additional fee for holidays. I have my own transportation. I am a nonsmoker.
