About Kathleen

Open and flexible schedule

I am a fun loving and compassionate dog lover. I'm 24 and a Chicago native. I'm very familiar with the city, especially the Albany park, Lincoln Square, Logan Square, and lakeview neighborhoods. I live near the Albany park/Lincoln Square area. It's a very dog friendly area with many public parks and a walking/biking trail near the river. Aside from dog walking I also enjoy practicing yoga and reading (it's both a hobby and ...

What Kathleen would like to know about your dog

I love all dogs. I don't have any preferences as far as breed goes. As for size, small to large is my preference, just as long as they aren't extra large. I am comfortable working with dogs of all temperaments, as long as they are not aggressive or particularly disobedient. Just let me know of any quirks or habits your dog may have (like short attention span), and how to best handle it, if necessary. If you or your dog have any preferences/needs as far as care or handling goes, please let me know and I'd be happy to oblige. In addition, please let me know if your dog has any injuries, conditions, limitations, etc.

Additional Skills
Can provide daily exercise

As I previously stated, I am very familiar with the city. I will take your dog for walks around the neighborhood, through the local public parks or dog parks where available, or the beach. I can offer your dog some physical activity based in their needs. I can take your dog for a leisurely stroll in the park for some down time, allow them some time to sit and relax. I can also read aloud to your dog, which I find some dogs enjoy. For more high energy activity, I can take your dog for runs or play games with them. I can play fetch with your dog, soccer, run around the dog park with them, etc.
