I have owned pets for over 18 years and have volunteered with PAWS Chicago for many years. I am currently part of their development board. I love animals and have recently taken a break from corporate America and would like to spend some time with fur babies as my new " co-workers." While I am fairly new to dog walking, I have employed my own dog walkers/care providers for 10+ years. I know what makes a good pet care provider. I had a 10-year-old Labrador who passed away in May of 2016 from cancer, and I still have two cats (ages 3 and 4) who I rescued. I understand the social and behavior issues that might come with them because of that rescue/shelter background such as separation anxiety, dog aggression, leash pulling etc. I am currently a student again, and planning to attend veterinary school!
