Owner/Fill-in Dog Walker - All Areas
Hello! I’m Mariah. I'm from Michigan and I moved to Chicago in 2008. My love for animals has brought me to my current place in life. I started Paws In Motion in January 2011. Some of my favorite things to do are going to the park with my pups, gardening, and traveling. I also like to challenge myself with tough projects around the house. Mya, Bo, Banshee and Pearl (my pups) are the loves of my life. Mya (modeling in this pic!) is a super cool 8 y/o Sheppard mix that loves to play BALL! Bo the beagle is almost 12 and he loves TREATS more than anything in the world, Banshee the Chi-wienie is just about 5 y/o and he is the biggest goof ever, and Pearl the pit is about 11 y/o and is just the biggest sweetheart ever! You can find my gang of pups cruising the streets of Pilsen and kicking up sand at the dog beach in the summer.

Hello! My bio is coming soon...as you can see that I love Chicago winters (not!) but I make the best of them.
Head Dog Walker - River North/Streeterville
Hi! My bio and pic are coming soon...in the meantime Pearl's lovely face and resume will be holding my place. Pearl was found on the streets of Pilsen and spent 6 days in the slammer (CACC) when the nice people at CARF busted her out. She then came to live with her "now" permanent family. She likes to sleep all day and party all night! She makes sure to shell out at least 100 kisses a day and will say hi to anyone she meets. Her favorite things are sun bathing, sleeping, eating and killing stuffed animals. She is enjoying retirement! She spent her younger years raising puppies and exploring the neighborhood.
Dog Walker - Bucktown/Wicker Park
Hi! My name is Odaliz but everyone calls me Oly. I was born and raised in Chicago,IL (Humbolt Park/Logan Square). A few things I enjoy doing are taking my pets to the park to play, barbecuing, reading and spending time with my family which includes my newborn son. My fur babies - Lulu, Rocky, and Bucky aka Fetty Wap mean the world to me. Lulu is a 8 y/o sassy Chihuahua with tons of spunk. Rocky is my 3 y/o sweetheart red-nose pitbull that loves treats. I just recently adopted Bucky the one-eyed cat from the Anti-Cruelty Society. I am a huge believer in "Adopt DON'T shop" when it comes to bringing new fur family in. I love dog walking in Chicago because nothing beats the feeling of being with your dog/s around great people. My favorite spot to take friends in the city is Margie's Candies because they have the best ice cream!
Dog Walker - Humboldt Park/Logan Square
My name is Anita, I am Mexican/American and was born and raised here in Chicago. I love my job as a dog-walker because the dogs don't judge me! They don't care what I'm wearing, how nice my make-up is or if my hair is not perfect. My doggy clients are so accepting and have unconditional love for me, such a great thing. They just love that I am there to hangout and walk them. They love that I know where the best grass spots are and where their parents hide the good treats! I have traveled to Mexico, California and Michigan. When my family comes to visit, you will find us doing the tourist thing starting at the Bean.
Dog Walker - Lakeview/Uptown
I'm Adelia! I’m originally from Texas. I love art and painting, and I make sculpture dragons! I have lived in Chicago for 4 years now, and I really like all of the coffee shops, and the old-fashioned and refurbished movie theaters around the city. When I’m not loving on client’s dogs, I get to go home and snuggle with my 3 crazy sweet bunnies.
Dog Walker - Pilsen
Hello! My pic and bio are coming soon...in the meantime, Bo's handsome face and resume will be holding my place. Bo is a smart, toooooo smart for his own good, beagle. The nice people at PAWS rescued him from the shelter and he has been breaking hearts ever since. Bo is a family man, world traveler (ok..state traveler!) and a chef aka taste tester. You will find him keeping watch over his doggy siblings from his spot on the couch. He has the classic beagle prance and bark. Bo must have swallowed a spring as a pup because he has a vertical jump that any Chicago Bull would be jealous of. Bo also knows how to sit, stay, beg, bark and play dead. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks!?!
Dog Walker - Roscoe/Ravenswood/Lincoln Square
Hola! My bio and pic are coming soon! In the meantime, Banshee's adorable face and resume will be holding my place. Banshee was found on the streets of Tri-Taylor and he instantly bonded with his "now" BFF Mya. It is rare to see them apart. Banshee is a total ladies man and the biggest charmer ever! Some of his favorite things to do are picking on his sister (bestie), snuggling and guarding the front yard. He's too cool for selfies and bath time. He is known as the "house manager" at home and he runs a tight ship!
Dog Walker- River North
Hey! My bio and pic are coming soon...in the meantime, Mya Bear's beautiful face and resume will be holding my place. Mya is from Michigan where she had a big yard filled with wildlife for her to chase. Mya loves to go to the park and play ball. Despite her knee replacement in 2014 she is still the fastest girl around. She is the biggest baby and ultimate snuggle bug. She is learning how to be a city gal but the country is where she belongs. She keeps her doggy social circle small and her friends close. She is the perfect example of a good old fashion dog. She loves to travel back to Michigan to visit her former family aka her cousins. She also loves to kill her stuffed animals and pick on her little brother (bestie). In the summer you will find her with her paws in the water and her butt in the sand.
Dog Walker- West Town
Hi! My bio and pic are coming soon...in the meantime this little cutie will be holding my place. Rocky is Paws In Motion's FIRST client! He loves to spend his days watching talk shows and soap operas and his nights partying. You will find him walking around River North and taking trips to the burbs to hangout with family. He is the most popular guy on his block. He loves his toys aka babies and chicken jerky.
Dog walker - Lincoln Park/Old Town
Hello! My bio and pic are coming soon....in the meantime this chunkster will be holding my place. Dino Dog is the total package! His cute under-bite, his handsome face and his spunky personality wins everyone over. Dino hasn't met a dog or person he hasn't liked. He loves to go for long walks to the park and chase squirrels. He also loves to destroy every toy his mom brings home. He can be found on the back of the couch looking out the window during the day and in his mom's bed at night. He also has four human siblings that just adore him. He likes to swim in the summer and play in the snow in the winter. He has an upscale appetite and a nose for good food....like I said..TOTAL package!
