“For most people, pet care doesn’t sound very interesting. For me, pet care is a passion I’ve been chasing for over 6 years. My curiosity and fascination with dogs landed me my dream job. First, North Bergen Pet Sitter in New Jersey, now, taking The Windy City with Chicawoof! and Field Days where I’m focused on providing dog owners with personalized care, enrichment, and quality time. I guess you could say I’m living the dream.”
