I was born and raised in Chicago and I grew up with many animals in my home, from guinea pigs to dogs and cats.
I love animals and I'm happy to take care of other furry friends! My cat, Shen and my dog, Miso are the best of buds and I look forward to take care of your furry family as well!

Josh has lived in Michigan his whole life and recently re-located to Chicago where he now lives with his girlfriend and their 3 dogs and 2 cats. After taking care of his pets full time he realized that what he would love to do is pursue his passion and spend his days with the best co-workers ever - animals! He is so excited to be joining the Uptown team and looks forward to spending many sunny (and rainy) days walking your furry family!
Dan, a lifelong resident of Chicago and currently residing in Uptown, has a profound love for all animals. Before he could even walk, a furry sibling has always been in his life. He believes pets are our best friends, children, family members, and trusted confidants. In addition to the love and compassion for all animals, he believes our fuzzy kids improve community. Dan, along with his fiancée Melissa, love taking their cuddly pitbull Hannah out for walks in the neighborhood, going on hikes, and being an advocate for the breed. While not out walking dogs, Dan spends his time as a local Realtor working with clients that may struggle finding good homes due to breed restrictions. If you see him around, he loves to chat about our furry friends and community!
Aaron was born and raised in the great city of Chicago, and has spend most of his spare time caring for his family and exploring our fair city. Aaron loves all things animal and has had a pet (or several pets) in his life since he was 3 years old. Aaron enjoys spending time outdoors, giving your pet(s) all the exercise and attention they can handle, and he is always here to help!
At Uptown Pet Services, our mission is simple: To love and care for each and every animal just like we would want someone to take care of ours. Keeping your pets happy and healthy by providing exceptional care which includes exercise, interaction and personalized attention. And that means more than just coming to your home for more than just a 30-minute visit or to feed them. We routinely walk, play and train your animal to make sure that they're not just getting love and attention, but they're also getting some well-deserved, structured exercise.
Jack was born and raised in the Chicago area, and throughout his childhood Jack's family was always extended with four-legged canine and feline members; in fact, there has been an Old English Sheepdog in Jack's family since the day he was born! After taking his own sheepdogs on a hiatus to Colorado, Jack returned to Chicago and has been a proud resident of the Uptown neighborhood since 2006.
During that time, Jack managed a large pet services company where he hired and trained staff members as well as creating and implementing weekly schedules that often extended to more than 500 walks per week. After more than 7 years in that position, Jack decided that it was time to venture out and start a business of his own, along with the help of his wife Trisha, and his trusty sheepdog Payton (who, unfortunately, passed away in April 2015). Jack not only brings customers his experience and expertise of the profession, but also the care and loyalty he has had for animals since childhood.
