Dog Walking Jobs in Chicago

Becoming a Dog Walker

If you love dogs but don’t love your job, you’ve probably considered becoming a dog walker at some point. It’s a highly rewarding job, but being a dog walker in Chicago has its challenges. There are weather and logistical issues to deal with, but the opportunity to spend your day with the most adorable dogs in River North, West Loop, Streeterville, Old Town, and the Gold Coast makes it worth your while.

As a prospective candidate for Highrise Pet Care, the first decision to make is deciding when you’d like to work. Our Caregivers choose their own hours — a luxury that most dog walkers in Chicago do not have.

Next, select the neighborhood(s) in Chicago that you’re available to work. The majority of our dog walking clients live in River North, West Loop, Streeterville, Old Town, and the Gold Coast. We also service pet families in select areas of Lincoln Park and Lakeview.

Getting Started

After your interviews, the Highrise team will match you with pet families who need pet care services at the times you’re available. For most pet owners, their dogs and cats are like their children. We’ll coordinate meet & greets with you and your new clients so you’ll have the opportunity to learn about each pet’s unique needs and to ensure it’s a good mutual fit.

Highrise Pet Care’s scheduling app will have all the relevant info to ensure you have successful visit. If you have any questions during a visit, the support staff in the office is always happy to help!
