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.
Patrick is a resident of Uptown, Chicago. His mom raised him having a loving and compassionate attitude towards all animals. His pets have included a parakeet, multiple cats, dogs, and horses. During his first few semesters in college he and his dog Bella would take routine walks to the park and he admits that walking other dogs is just like taking Bella to the park!
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!
I was born and raised in Chicago. I also grew up many animals from giunea 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'm looking forward to take care of your furry family as well!
I've always felt that animals do so much for us and show us all the attention we could ask for, and I'm so happy to be returning the favor each day at Uptown Pet Services. My cat, Stimpy, encourages me to stay active and play with string as much of the day as possible; and he handles sharing me out during the day fairly well, so long as he can shed all over me in the evening. In short, Stimpy and I have lots of love for all our furry Chicagoans and their people, and I'll look forward to seeing your pets for our next stroll around the city!
