Tails Up Chicago provides daily dog walks, dog and cat sitting, and other pet services in neighborhoods in and around downtown Chicago. At Tails Up Chicago, we treat your pets as if they were our own. Choosing the right caretaker for your pet is an important decision which should not be taken lightly. We are proud partners with PAWS and the Anti-Cruelty Society, and many of our dog walkers also volunteer and work at both of these organizations. We look forward to speaking with you about your pet’s needs.
Our motto is “when the owners away, the pets will play!”
I grew up in the Bridgeport neighborhood on Chicago’s southside. I attended Northwestern University for college and graduated with a degree in Biology. My entire life I have had a love for animals, and while in high school I began volunteering at PAWS.
After college, I was accepted to medical school. After my third year, however, I decided to take a 1 year sabbatical and began walking and sitting dogs. This break made me realize that I did not want to pursue a career in medicine but rather devote my energy to animals. Two months into my sabbatical Tails Up Chicago was born!
