I started Home Treat Home in 2013 in an effort to refocus my career on something I cared deeply about. I was working long hours in an advertising agency and felt uninspired and burned out. Dogs have always held a special place in my heart and are essentially the opposite of advertising executives, and so Home Treat Home was born.

This job has taken me all over the city, and I've met so many fantastic people along the way—not to mention their wonderful animals. I've enjoyed building this business the past 5 years, and my relationships with clients and their dogs have always been at the core of that.

Denver is a new addition to the Home Treat Home Pack and I am thrilled to be here. Denver holds a special place in my heart and I look forward to meeting all the fur kids. You will see me walking pups all over Denver. I will go above and beyond for you and your furry loved-one. Set up a meet and greet with me today!

My story is similar to Josh's: working long hours at a healthcare advertising agency, feeling uninspired in my career, a lifelong love of dogs (and a serious lack of them in my life). I knew Josh from the rugby team we play on, and he had mentioned that he was looking to hire someone to help out with his dog walking/pet sitting business, and I jumped at the chance.

It was great to move from an office chair staring at a computer screen to walking around Chicago with cool dogs. Not to sound cliché, but hanging out with dogs all the time gives you a significantly different perspective than hanging out in an office setting. Plus, walking around all day is certainly better than sitting. In short, it's been great and I look forward to what comes next! Spot me walking "Spot" in the Andersonville, Edgewater, Ravenswood, and Uptown neighborhoods.

I think I've always seen myself as a dog caregiver, and I got to fulfill that vision when I took a job with Home Treat Home. It has been, by far, my most satisfying job. A smile is always drawn on my face every time I walk into a house and am greeted with licks and tail wags.

This job is therapy to me, and I am thrilled to be able to work with a great group of coworkers as well as all of your furry family members! You'll see me walking pups in the Lakeview, Buena Park, and Lincoln Park neighborhoods. Also, I am a certified Vet Technician.

Growing up I was afraid of dogs, but I started working for The Anti-Cruelty Society and fell in-love with the fur kids. When Chloe told me that Home Treat Home was hiring, I jumped at the chance to work with dogs again. This time outdoors! There is nothing greater than a sunny day walk with a happy pup.

I look forward to walking and building a strong bond with your fur kid(s). My walks are located in the Logan Square, Bucktown, Wicker Park, and Ukrainian Village neighborhoods.

After recently moving to Chicago, I was looking for something to fill my days. I have two pups of my own and wanted a job that was dog friendly. Nothing is more dog friendly than being a dog walker. It has “Dog” in the title. I truly understand what it requires to have fur kids. As a fellow parent, trust is a major factor when considering a dog walker and I will provide that trust and bond you need. Us dog parents have to stick together.

You’ll see me a lot with my pups at the dog beach or park. Don’t hesitate to come play. I walk dogs in Old Town and Gold Coast neighborhoods.

Another young professional turning to dogs for stress relief. I was working for a small start-up that blew up and I needed a break from it. Josh and I are friends through rugby and have known each other for a long time. When I heard he was hiring, I jumped at the chance to work with HTH.

Dogs make you laugh after a bad day or make a good day, great. There is such joy in knowing that when I walk through that door, a fur kid is going to be whipping their tail back and forth with a huge smile on their mug. It’s the best part about being a dog walker.

See me strutting down the block with doggy models in Ravenswood Manor and Albany Park neighborhoods.
