Allison, Business Owner
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.
Rachel, Dog Walker
One of Rachel’s favorite childhood memories is the day her mom took her to the local animal shelter to pick out a puppy named Sunny who would end up being her best friend for 15 years. She’s loved every dog and cat that’s come into her life ever since. Unfortunately she doesn’t have a fur baby of her own at the moment, but that’s where Wags-A-Lot comes in!
Rachel works as a morning radio show producer in Chicago and moved from Atlanta in 2019. She is a die-hard Real Housewives fan and loves rock climbing, kayaking, snowboarding, and traveling all over the world.

Viv, Dog Walker
Viv is a true “’dogaholic”. Growing up, she has always had at least one dog around the house, giving her experience with a huge variety of breeds.Viv’s passion for dogs ignited when she moved to Chicago in 2012 and began walking pups all around the city, realizing her own motivation were the pups she’s always loved since childhood.
After her daily walking schedule is finished, Viv is still a proud doggie mama of two beautiful pups of her own, a cute Chorkie named Teddy and a yellow Labrador named Sunday! In her free time, Viv likes watching TV cuddled with her pups and husband, enjoying BBQ’s with friends, attending any Chicago sporting event (GO BEARS!), and singing along at music concerts.
