Meet Our Team

Wags-A-Lot Dog Walking is a family, and our family is full of heart. Learn more about us, then see why our clients—and their dogs—love our dog walkers.

Allison, Business Owner

Growing up, Allison was jealous of all her friends with pet dogs and pestered her mom for years until she caved and let her and her sister get a dog of their own. She enjoyed helping her sister with her dog care services while they lived together in college. Presently, Allison and her boyfriend have their hands (and hearts) full with an Australian Shepherd puppy named Kobe and a tuxedo cat named NeNe.
She moved here from Indiana and has been a server/bartender at various bars around the city. She enjoys watching The Real Housewives, reading, cooking and listening to My Favorite Murder and scaring herself with true crime stories.


Sadie, Business Owner

Sadie has loved animals ever since she can remember. Some of her favorite childhood memories consist of running around playing with the animals on her grandpa’s farm. It is no surprise that she later insisted on having a pet of her own ("Mudd" - pictured above). Besides caring for her own pets, she has also been a dog walker/sitter for over 8 years. During that time she has encountered pups of all shapes, sizes and personalities and loves getting to know each and every one!

Sadie grew up in Northwest Indiana but spent the last three years living in Colorado and Mongolia, where she taught elementary and junior high school. Since she has been back in Chicago she has been working as an ABA therapist and, of course, spending lots of time with dogs!

 When she’s not working and hanging out with dogs, she’s probably going for a long run or bike ride, sitting on her porch with a book and a cup of coffee, hiking, eating something chocolatey, or listening to Mongolian music.

Bob, Dog Walker

Since a young age, Bob has had a love for animals. He grew up with everything from dogs to ducks. Bob is currently in his second season of fostering and domesticating outdoor cats for adoption. He also owns a rabbit, nine parakeets, and an assortment of fish.

During his free time, he writes, designs, and publishes a digital magazine on retro gaming and plays a lot of video games as well. When he is not working on design or writing, he can be found playing some hockey wherever a sheet of ice or patch of pavement can be found.

Mary McGough, Dog Walker

Mary is a recent college-grad who was looking for a part-time job after she made the big move to Chicago. Finding Wags-A-Lot Dog Walking was just what she was looking for. It’s the perfect way to walk around her new home, see new sights, and (of course) spend time with all the furry cuties! 

Mary adores animals! She actually wanted to be an animal rescuer when she was a little girl. Dog walking is the perfect way to get her animal fix. Aside from Wags-A-Lot, Mary is an actor in the city and plans on attending grad school in the near future for Acting/Directing. You can also find her cooking any new recipe she can get her hands on, reading a murder mystery novel, or traveling.
