What we are doing!

Welcome to Dog Star Walkers, proudly dog walking and cat sitting in Chicago's North & North West side neighborhoods!


With Dog Star, your dog will have the same daily walker to insure a great relationship. We feel it's important to know all their little quirks and the places they like to sniff or be scratched so that the time we spend with your best friend is quality time that really suits their needs. We vary their routine so that when we walk your dog, they have an outing full of fun and discovery.

The same individual attention is given to our kitty clients as wells as our pups, respecting their individual needs and personalities. We give scratches in all the right places and sparkling clean litter boxes.

There is two of us running this menagerie and because of this communication is top notch and simple on a daily basis. We are constantly striving to provide the best possible experience for you and your four legged Romper Stompers (Romper Stompers - noun 1. A four legged animal who's exuberance for life causes it to run about and chase it's own tail 2. A four legged animal that's up to no good, in a good way)

The Original Dog Stars

Dog Star Walkers was initially started in 2009 by our former boss, Kristin. Below, we've included her story...

"We started dog star walkers out of our love for dogs, cats and all creatures big and small. When our beloved Akita, Daisy, passed over the rainbow bridge in December 2008 at the ripe old age of 16, we were devastated. Our best friend, partner, teacher and steady companion had left our lives. The void was almost unbearable. While this is a very somber note to start things out on, it is really a celebration. A celebration of what our pets mean to our lives, a celebration of unconditional love, and a celebration of Daisy's legacy. So, here's to you Daisy. I miss telling you to move your big booty out of my way every single day of my life. We plan to make you proud."
