Urban Tailz On-Demand Dog Walking Services

dog walking services

Urban Tailz has been providing daily dog walking services on the North Side of Chicago since 2000.

We are one of the oldest and most well-known pet sitting companies in Chicago. We have learned a lot in our 20 years of business, and we continually work to improve our pet care services to best meet the needs of our customers.

Our dog walkers are employees who have been background checked and have gone through a week-long training course before providing pet care services on their own. Urban Tailz is also licensed, bonded, and insured to provide pet sitting services in Chicago.

Urban Tailz provides frequency discounts for our midday dog walking clients. We offer $1 off each walk when scheduling 3+ walks per week and $2 off each walk when scheduling 4+ walks per week for our 30-min and 50-min visits. We offer $1 off each 20-min puppy walk when scheduling 6+ walks per week. These discounts are automatically adjusted on your monthly invoice.

Will I always have the same walker?

Yes. We believe consistency is important and want our walkers to build a relationship with their pets and clients. You will always have the same walker unless your walker needs a day off. We send messages letting you know your walker has a day off so there are never any surprises.

Will my dog(s) be walked with other dogs?

We want your pet’s time to be special so we will only walk your pet during their visit. We will never walk multiple client’s pets unless neighboring clients ask that their pets be walked together.

What if my dog is afraid of strangers?

Urban Tailz is a Fear Free Certified Professional Organization. We understand how to alleviate our pet’s fears, anxieties, and stresses. We also provide the same midday dog walker so your pet can build a bond with their walker. We like to have a manager do the first few visits before introducing your regular walker so we always have a solid backup if your walker ever needs a day off.

How will I know my dog has been walked?

Urban Tailz uses Time to Pet software with complete GPS tracking. You receive a detailed visit report the moment the walk has been completed with fun pics and notes on how the walk went. You can also see the route your pet and their walker took on the walk.

Can I schedule evening and weekend dog walks?

We do provide dog walks 7 days a week from 7am to 9pm daily. Our off-peak dog walks (anything scheduled outside of Mon-Fri 10am to 4pm) are reserved for our regular midday dog walking clients who schedule 6+ midday dog walks per month. We are unable to provide off-peak dog walks for clients who do not schedule at least 6 midday dog walks per month.
