Hello, my name is Jenn Lyons and I have been the owner of Josi’s Paw Dog Walking and Pet Sitting since it’s creation in 2008. I named this business after my pug and soul mate, Josephine (who passed on in 2006).
After walking dogs in San Francisco for 7 years, I have moved my business to Chicago to continue on.
I love dogs and really look forward to my days spent walking around the beautiful local neighborhoods!
- I have been licensed and insured since 2008.
- I am a member of Pet Sitters International.
- I am certified in Pet Loss Counseling. I have been doing pet loss counseling for 8 years. My experience with my own loss has led me to understand the value in assisting others with their losses.
- I have experience with special needs, senior and medicine dependent pets. I love having the opportunity to provide the level of care that these companions depend on.
Why group walks? Group walks improve socialization and give dogs a chance to make friends and operate as a pack, the natural dog instinct.
All of my walks are on-leash for the safety and best interest of each dog. Groups are no larger than 6 dogs per group and I do my best to place every dog in the group I feel they will be the most compatible.
I bring my 2 dogs Pete and Siggie on some of the walks with me and I know that there is nothing better than a tired and happy dog! I make it my mission to give every dog I walk the best workout I can, while supplying lots of fun and love.
Please drop me a line if you would like to know more about my business. I look forward to hearing from you!
