Dog Walking in DeKalb
Book a dog walker to give your dog a 30-minute walk around your neighborhood.
“Lauren has watched my dog Wally several times and I can't imagine ever asking someone else to do it again! I travel a lot with my boyfriend, and my dog is like my kid. I hate to leave him because he has kind of a complex feeding schedule as well as medication and he gets anxious around new people, and the one time I boarded him left my dog AND me scarred. Lauren has completely erased any and all fears! She is always reachable for communication, always answers my 5,000 questions (usually just me being a worry-wart pet parent lol) with kindness, and sends me pictures of my baby any time I ask. The best part? Wally loves her! And he doesn't trust people easily at all. Lauren has always been kind, courteous, and above all, has taken watching my dog seriously. Because at the end of the day i'm putting my baby in her hands and she treats that responsibility with the attention it deserves. I'd honestly (and happily) pay any price Lauren asked of me because the peace of mind and knowing my dog is not just safe but is getting love and attention above and beyond what is required is seriously priceless. I haven't regretted a single cent I've given her. Because I have heard TOO MANY horror stories of people using apps or boarding/daycares and their pets being mistreated, their pets running away and not being notified, of the people throwing parties in their houses while they're away, and on and on. I am SO glad I have Lauren to rely on and watch my baby any time I'm away. I couldn't recommend her enough! Truly a professional as well as a genuine pet lover - it's never just a job for her. I'm beyond happy to write this and recommend Lauren!”
“Cora is awesome she is very reliable and flexible with her schedule. She loves and has been able to handle my pittbul with no issues. There has been a couple times where she was able to do visit with in 24 hours of requests. She is very communicative. So 10/10 highly recommend.”
“Kellie is a caring young woman who loves all fur babies. She is energetic and takes great care of animals in her care. She loves taking dogs on walks and even sleeps with our fur babies when we are out of town.”
About: I have volunteered in an animal shelter caring for dogs and cats for over 7 years. Taken care of dogs, cats, and other animals since I was 8 for neighbors, friends and family where I walked, fed, cleaned up after and exercised them. My family has fostered cats, raised many puppies, owned dogs, rabbits, birds, and lizards. I have a lot of experience with most pets. I am currently a nursing student at NIU. I am not very busy and have a lot of free time during most weekdays and weekends. I miss not living with my pets at home and would love to spend time taking care of your pet! I will be able to come over multiple times a day to make sure your pets are taken care of and are getting the right amount of attention and exercise.
“Kayla did a wonderful job with my pups!! She was incredibly kind and took her time to gain both of their trust. I highly recommend her for all of your pup care needs!”
“Emily has been awesome with my dog Millie over the last year and a half. She is a family friend who offered to let out and watch Millie while I’m at work. Millie always gets so excited to see her and Emily always sends picture updates from my house when she’s there! So glad to have someone I can trust let her out and spend time with her when I’m not able to.”
“Sam is the kindest, most empathetic person when it comes to animals! He is very kind and is always respectful with both the animals and their owners. He watched my family's dog multiple times and got our dog to cuddle with him, which is hard to do! Sam is also the best pet owner and spoils his own dog with love and attention. I would absolutely recommend his services to anyone!”
About: I have had dogs my entire life, they are like family to me. The smile they put on my face when I walk in the door is worth everything! I am the person that stops to pet every dog I see when walking. I will treat your dogs like family and give them so much love. I have a flexible availability. I have two kids who also love pups and I work part time. I have plenty of time to take care of your pup. I work part time two days a week so my schedule is very open. I am home all weekends as well to accommodate weekend getaways. I have a fenced backyard and am very cautious about opening all other front doors unless my own dogs are in another room or outside.
“Miss Megan has known me and my family for a very long time. I am disabled with limited Mobility and for the most part homebound. I have three small dogs a Boston Terrier, a terrier mix, and a pug. When Megan comes the dogs get all excited we can't wait to see her because they know she will play with them and take them for a walk and get them outside. If it's true what they say about animals being a good judge of character then Megan must be great because my dog is my family think she's great!”
“Kelly has been someone who has watched my animals (dog & cat) during vacations for a couple of years Walking/feeding/watching she’s done it all for my family and has been a great resource and had been super responsible when staying over.”

Upon returning from our walk, I would clean their feet if the weather calls for it, take off leashes and would love to give a treat and give a few more loving pets before I go.
“Alesha is the best dog walker anyone could ask for! She goes above and beyond; taking pictures during every walk, alerting me to changes in my dog's stool, loading up his licky mat before she leaves, and bringing water and bowl for the walk, making sure there'senough water in his bowl before she leaves my home. These are just a few things.. she's also great with communicating with me and ensuring schedule changes are seamless. Would highly recommend her to anyone, just don't take her from me!”
“Haley was great! Easy and prompt communication, able to jump in and help when we were in a pinch. Would recommend her highly and will be booking her again!”
“Kayra is a fantastic and friendly dog walker!”
“Morgan does a wonderful job at walking, feeding, and caring for my dog on the days I’m at work for 12 hours. She has really been a huge help in assuring me my fur baby is taken care of. She is very responsive and always willing to help when she can!”
“She is a kind personality and loves pets and animals since I know her like a coworker as animal caretaker on a farm, plus she has higher knowledge on animals because her studies on veterinary area. I am very happy to write this down for her, any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Kind regards OM”
About: Hello! My name is Melissa. I work part time at a Pet Resort and Hotel, so I have LOTS of experience with dogs of all sizes and personalities. I’ve been around dogs my entire life. I have three dogs of my own and one of our favorite things to do is go hiking through different forest preserves in the area. We’d be happy to bring your pup along. I love walking and playing with dogs, running and cuddling. I am very active and outgoing. I love spending my time outside no matter what kind of weather we’re having. I have worked with all types of dogs and have become familiar with different cues dogs give off depending on how they’re feeling. I use this to care for each individual dog in a different at that will make them feel comfortable and safe as well as myself. I am very flexible. I will care for your dog like they are my own. I will work with you to make sure your fur-child gets the very best care that suits your needs and theirs. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about me or my services. I work my job Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Others days I might have things going on, but I’m very flexible. I am used to waking up very early so mornings are not a problem. I can follow any instructions as requested to care for your fur-babies. I take into account my safety and theirs and would never put either of us in a dangerous situation. I would never let off lead during a walk, turn my back or be distracted. You can count on me to have their very best interest in mind.
“Jen was so good with all my cats and my dog. I was honestly concerned that my pet care needs were asking too much but Jen was amazing and completed everything I asked! My baby girl was very comfortable with her and knew she was safe. I would refer her to anyone looking for a caring pet caregiver who will ensure your pets safety and happiness. She has definitely earned a repeat client with me and will most likely be main/only dog walker unless she’s unavailable haha. Anyways, book her if you can!”
About: I love working with animals. My passion for a animals drove me to complete a B.A. in Anthrozoology, which gave me a strong training background. I have trained rescue and service dogs for the past 9 years, including training basic commands, specific service tasks, and scent work. I emphasize positive reinforcement when training and caring for all animals to ensure that the training is effective and minimally distressing for the animal. My availability is relatively open this summer. I would be happy to train, dog sit, or dog walk. Just let me know what service you are looking for! When caring for animals, I prioritize ensuring that the animals are as comfortable and minimally distressed as possible. It can be tough when separated from your primary caretaker. My goal is to help your animals thrive while you are away.
About: I have worked in two animal care environments, one being a pet sitting/dog walking company, the other being a dog day care facility. I have supervised and cared for groups of dogs, as well as provided walks, play time, or fresh food/water. I also frequently used to watch my neighbors pups and home when they went out of town on vacations. I grew up with and helped take care of 2 cats and 2 dogs (a golden retriever mix and a german shepherd), as well as a few other critters like hamsters and hermit crabs, and I have currently have a cat of my own! *PLEASE READ before requesting booking!!!* I am in between jobs at the moment while using this app to help bring in some money in the mean time! I will update this as soon as I’m aware of my new schedule, so I am free for the time being, until further notice :) I definitely have a lot of experience going to different client homes and working with a variety of situations and breeds. I love to give everyone's fur babies some love and care, like giving them some head or belly scratches, some play time, time to run around outside if need be, or providing some fresh water and a friendly person for them to hang out with.
