I Will Care For Your Pets As If They Are My Own

Hi I’m Michelle! I would love to help with your fur babies! I currently have a Maltese that is 15 and needs a little help getting around so if you have a senior dog I have many years of experience. I am good with all breeds, and sizes. If you need walks, drop ins or sitting please leave instructions and I would be glad to help. I previously worked in a vet clinic and know how to handle emergency situations. During our time I will keep you updated and send pictures.

Dog Walker in Wheaton, IL

I have enjoyed being around dogs since I was very young. I have recently decided to become a dog walker becuase I want to be able to spend quality time with dogs and make them cheerful while their owner is away. I love interacting with dogs, and I would always be playful with your dog on the walk as it ensures they have a better time. I also have sidewalks all throughout my neighborhood which provides the safety a dog needs when going on a walk. I am 14 but I am very responsible and even more playful and friendly with dogs than most people. Because I am 14, I am also availible more throughout the weekend and weekdays which makes it easier to book me as your dog walker. I hope to connect with...See Profile
