Dog walking, cat whispering Gurus

Meredith Schultz


Dog walking has been such a blessing for me.  After spending almost 10 years at a desk I knew I wanted a change.  I broke out my notebook to brainstorm what my perfect job would look like.  I knew I wanted to work with animals, work outside, make people happy and get to be nurturing and loving on a daily basis.  The only job I could think of that matched my requirements was dog walking! 

I started at the top rated dog walking company in Chicago, Windy City Dog Walkers, where I was trained by the best walkers the city had to offer in 2013.  I knew from the first, I had found my passion and future. 

In 2015 I opened Harvey Park Pals and have been serving my neighbors ever since.


Patty started out as a client of ours but has now officially joined the team!  Patty is my go-to care taker when I need some time off.  She is methodical and careful and just loves working with animals.  Her own crew includes one big dog Zoey and three sweet cats including the neighborhood's infamous Marzipan.  She also regularly fosters dogs and has even taken on several new mommas with litters.  Patty says that getting to work with animals is making retirement that much sweeter.
