Dogs Deserve It is proud to employee Chicago’s most amazing dog walkers. We are pleased to announce that the Dogs Deserve It September 2019 walker of the month is Andrew!
Not only is Andrew a dog whisperer, he is also a classically trained musician! We feel very lucky to have him on staff. Check out our interview with this jack of all trades below!
Why did you decide to become a dog walker?
I became a dog walker kind of on a whim – I’m a classical trained musician and was looking for some work while I was off for the summer. A friend of mine already worked for DDI and recommended I apply because the company is super flexible with people who work in the arts, and here I am a year later!
What is your favorite thing about the job?
My favorite thing about the job is obviously the dogs! It’s also nice to generally get to experience the best weather Chicago offers, but the dogs are where it’s at. And I really enjoy working at DDI because it’s a group of fellow musicians/actors/artists, and everyone from your coworkers to management are super supportive of outside interests.
Tell us about your passions and hobbies!
As I mentioned earlier I’m a classical musician and that is one of my main focuses/passions in life. I also love hiking/camping/being outdoors and spent a week backpacking on an island in Lake Superior this summer, and I’m a big supporter of Tottenham Hotspur FC.
THANK YOU ANDREW, WE LOVE YOU!!! THANK YOU FOR BEING ONE OF CHICAGO’S MOST AMAZING DOG WALKERS! XOXO DDI TEAM
