Client Registration & Pet Health
First, we need each pet parent to fill out our consultation form. We will use your information entered for your "pet profile". All completed profiles include authorized persons on your account, veterinarian's name, dates of latest vaccinations, etc...
All dogs using our services must be generally healthy as we care for a large number of pets. We will not admit any pets that we believe to be a risk to the other animals or people in our care. It is your responsibility as a parent to notify us of any major health related issues affecting your dog so that we can make an informed determination about how to best care for them.
Clients who do not inform us in a timely manner of any major health issues, may not be allowed to use our services in the present and/or future. Minor health problems may be discussed during the consultation.

SOME HAPPY CLIENTS
Wiggley Walkers is hands down the top of it's class in Chicago for dog walking. We were referred to them by a friend and couldn't have been more thankful for being able to connect with them.
I was initially referred to Wiggley Walkers well over two years ago when I needed a cat sitter for an extended trip. Since then, he's watched my cat Floyd for every trip I couldn't find a friend to watch. They are my go-to service, and I have no issues recommending them to friends.
It's been about 4 years now, and although I gave then a glowing review back then, I have to take the time to say that it's only gotten better. Consistency, reliability, and flexibility is what I would hope for in a dog-walking outfit and these guys rate top-of-the-scale across all three categories.
