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.

Julia will 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. Julia will also leave a digital report card at the completion of each walk that will include detailed notes from her and occasional mind-blowingly adorable pictures of your pet. And we’ll do it all in a regular midday 30-minute visit so you get the best dog walking you can find in Chicago.

Julia has remained healthy and happy during COVID-19, thank goodness! She’s fully vaccinated and boosted as well! During the height of the pandemic, she wore a face mask at all times, especially when she was unable to maintain a six-foot social distance. On walks, her attention has always been on the dog and her surroundings to stay safe, but Julia also takes added precautions to avoid anyone without a mask. She also established a new normal before arriving at people’s homes. If you’re there, you two will pass off the leash at the door quickly. Small talk happens at a safe distance. And she trusts you’re keeping things safe and clean for her health, and yours!

Tail Wags & Happy Parents

I love knowing that whatever else happens during COVID-19, Mouse and Javi will see another human (dogs need socializing too!) and get some exercise. I can rely on Rover-Time to make that happen for me, even when I'm at max capacity with everything else in my life. I know my dogs are in good hands when they go on their adventures. Every Rover-Time walker we have had over the years has been trustworthy and always willing to do what's best for them. Our walkers always wear masks and really limit time inside, which I appreciate. Last spring when so much was unknown, I still felt good about having dog walks during the week. It was truly one less thing to worry about in a sea of so many other worries.
