Hyde Park Chicago's #1 Dog Walkers
Licensed, Insured & Bonded
We are a professional business licensed in the city of Chicago and we are also fully insured and bonded. We understand that your pets are part of your family and their emotional and physical well-being is always our number one priority. In addition to pet insurance, we also carry an expanded bonding policy so both your pets and your property are always protected when they are with us.
Real-time Reports and Photos
We use Pet Check Technology for the ultimate assurance your pet is being fully cared for in your absence. You will receive real-time notifications when your walker arrives and departs for your pets’ visits and reports including a personal note, GPS map, and photos of your pet. We also offer flexible online scheduling which you can do in seconds from your computer or via the easy-to-use Pet Check mobile app so you can schedule exactly what you need, when you need it.
Certified Walkers & Sitters
Our walkers and sitters all have previous experience caring for pets personally and/or professionally. Each walker and sitter goes through a lengthy hiring process including a background check, two interviews, one-on-one training, trial visits with the owners' pet, and taking a two part certification test. Most of our team has been with us for a year or more and we have the utmost confidence in each and every one of our walkers! We believe in quality over quantity and we only pair with the most loving and dedicated people.
Local & Family-owned
Hyde Bark’s owners, wife and husband LeAnna and Brandon are long time Hyde Park residents. Hyde Bark services exclusively the Hyde Park, Kenwood, Woodlawn and Bronzeville communities. All of our walkers and sitters also live in or near Hyde Park ensuring there is always somebody nearby to help.
