Dogs aren’t that different from us– they love socializing, sightseeing and running around in fresh cut grass, even during a pandemic.

Staying inside for too long near their favorite human of all time can cause two issues: separation anxiety and bottled up energy. You’re probably noticing this now that you’re home more, or all the time. It’s that excess energy that can cause a dog to chew-up pillows, hound their owners, bark a lot, or have indoor accidents.

We’ll partner with you to create a custom dog-walking plan centered on positive reinforcement training. You’ll have direct access to your dog’s walker via our mobile client portal app and each visit will provide GPS walk technology. Our team will also leave a digital report card at the completion of each walk that will include detailed notes from your walker and occasional mind-blowingly adorable pictures of your pet. And we’ll do it all in a regular midday 25-minute visit so you get the best dog walking you can find in Chicago.

Our team is coming to work healthy and happy during COVID-19! Every employee wears a face mask. We’ve been doing this but now it’s an official requirement of anyone in a public space unable to maintain a six-foot social distance. On walks, our attention has always been on the dog and our surroundings to stay safe, but we also take added precaution to avoid anyone without a mask. All non-essential businesses engaged in minimum basic activities to keep their doors open after the pandemic ends, will continue following social distancing requirements. For us, this means establishing a new normal before arriving at people’s homes. If you’re there, we pass off at the door quickly. Small talk happens at a safe distance. And we trust you’re keeping things safe and clean for our health, and yours!

Tail Wags & Happy Parents

The attention to detail and care throughout the interactions I have with the company are evident - from the expectations that are set for dog walkers to information sent out in a timely matter regarding payment to the care and comfort provided to my dog daily. Thank you Rover-Time!
