At Chicago Pet Sitters we strive for our sitters to feel like they are a part of a big family, and we want to give you the chance to see just how amazing our staff is.
Today’s walker spotlight is on: Kyle H.
Kyle is a writer and independent filmmaker, currently pursuing his MFA in Screenwriting at Maharishi University of Management. Growing up, his father bred and raised golden retrievers, so he’s used to being surrounded by dogs. Now he’s brought his love of animals to us as a Chicago dog walker!
