Why did you decide to become a dog walker?

Melody: I have always wanted to work with animals! Also, getting to be outside, getting exercise, and being in the city everyday were all factors that added up to this being the ideal job for me!

DDI: What is your favorite thing about the job? and DDI?

Melody: My favorite thing about being a dog walker is how everyday is an adventure! It’s certainly never boring! I also love that I wake up everyday and still look forward to my workday, and I never get tired of it. That was never the case until I became a dog walker.

I love working for Dogs Deserve It for many reasons, but I especially love how much we are appreciated. It feels good to know that our hard work is recognized. That’s definitely rare.

DDI: Tell us about your passions/hobbies!

Melody: I’m super passionate about music and traveling and often combine the two by traveling all of the country to attend music festivals and concerts. I don’t go more than a couple of weeks without attending a concert. We live in one of the best music cities and I definitely immerse myself in everything Chicago has to offer! I also enjoy camping, amusement parks, running, and reading! I’ve also found a new love for photography ever since I became a dog walker.

DDI: What would you like our readers/clients to know most about you?

Melody: I’ve learned so much working as a dog walker! Whether it’s been the artistic side of things through my photos of the animals or dog behavior, I honestly think I’ve grown so much, both as an employee and a person since I started. And it’s an amazing feeling!
