Emily is seriously the BEST. She came to the rescue when we got our pup a couple months ago and realized the night before Monday that we needed a walker! She came right over to meet our little land shark and made us feel super relaxed about the hands our pup was in. She always writes the BEST reviews and keeps us updated if something is off about our pup during her walk. Fern, our ...

We asked Emily to walk our pup because he is energetic and still in training on jumping and other naughty behavior. Emily is experienced with this breed and share similar mind on how we would walk our pup. She was patient which made us feel comfortable to share the things to look out during the walk and our concerns, our pup seems to love her by showing his wigglebutt as well!! Emily provided detail description ...

Your fur babies are my own!

Hi! I'm Emily, I'm a 31-year-old Chicago transplant with a passion for pets!

My boyfriend Josh and I have three amazing fur babies with whom we share a condo! Our dog, Miss Penny Lane is an Australian Shepherd and the love of my life (sshh, don't tell Josh)! They say Aussies are velcro dogs and Penny certainly fits the bill. We go on long walks every day and hikes as often as we can. She ...

What Emily would like to know about your dog

A few important things I always ask. 1. Does your dog get along with other dogs? Are there certain types of dogs they do or do not like? 2. How is your dog on the leash? Do they have leash aggression when seeing other dogs or children? 3. Does your dog have any food allergies?. 4. Does your dog have any separation anxiety, is he/she destructive when left alone? We will be sure to chat and go over all these questions and any others I have or you have for me.

Here's where we'll take our walks
I will take your dog on walks around the block or wherever you want me to go. If you have a normal route we will, of course, continue with your routine. Chicago is a great walking city so let's explore! And if you want me to take your pup to a dog park I would be happy to do so.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
My bed, your dog's bed- wherever they are comfortable! My bed is big enough for all :)

We have a long hallway in our apartment that is great for playing fetch and we live less than a block from a dog park that we can always go to, with your permission, of course.
