Madison Pet Sitter Leona

Meet Multi-Talented Madison Pet Sitter, Leona

Leona grew up on a horse farm in Maryland and still goes riding with her horse, Maggie. She is also an artist, mostly specializing in illustrations!

I am in charge of: Making sure pups, kitties, and other critters get plenty of play and snuggle time while their pet parents are away.

My furry family: Daisy (pictured) and Lollipop, two tuxedo kitties who still love to play like they’re ten years younger.

Super power: Shape-shifting so I could run and play with pups as one of their own kind!

Hidden talent: I make toys for my kitties.

Best thing ever: Cuddles from pups and kitties!

Best day ever: I absolutely love to go hiking at Devil’s Lake.

Best night ever: Lying on the couch with tea, a good book, and a kitty curled up next to me.

Life philosophy: Life is short, but it’s only sweet if you share it with a furry friend!

OUG! Madison dog walking business first anniversary!

Out-U-Go! Madison Turns One! A Special Thanks from Top Dog, Lisa.

Birthday Wags, Pet Parents!

This month, Out-U-Go! Madison turns one! That’s right, it’s been a year since we opened our doors here in Madison and began meeting and caring for so many fabulous pups, kitties, and pet parents in this fantastic community.

In celebration of our first year together (although, we’re totally seven in dog years..), my staff and I would like to take a special moment to thank our fantastic pet parents. We couldn’t have asked for better humans to embark on this journey with us, and we appreciate your support from the very beginning of what is sure to be a long, exciting road with plenty of interesting trees to smell.

We’re incredibly proud to have reached this landmark with your help, and our tails are just a-waggin’ thinking about the adventures in store for years to follow. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for your continued trust with your furry families!

Paws & Whiskers,
Lisa & Finn

cold dog in Chicago area snow

Chicagoland Chills: Ice, Snow, & Cold..Oh, my!

When people know you’re in the dog walking world, they talk to you a lot about the weather. In the summer, we often hear “Dog walking must be the perfect job!” In the winter (especially this winter with Chicagoland’s Polar Vortex) that often turns to, “Dog walking must be really hard!”

Yes, the winter challenges our Pet Sitters. You’ve got to bundle up, find a parking spot in the mounds of snow, take your boots off in the house, put on the pups’ coats & booties, encourage pups to take care of business in the cold, wipe the snow off pups (stop to blow your nose), take your boots off again, take the pups’ layers off, etc. It’s a few extra steps, BUT, we love it! We are so lucky to swoop into your home in the middle of the day and let your pup know he or she is loved and cared for.

However your pups feel about the cold, they love to see their favorite Pet Sitter each time he or she visits. As for us, getting licks on our frozen noses makes winter weather worth it!

And kitty visits this time of year? Now THOSE are the cat’s meow! πŸ˜‰

Here she is pictured with Barkley, a pup she walks every day. Barkley LOVES the cold and snow!

My furry family: My dog, Parker!

My favorite animal (other than dogs & cats): Horses.

My favorite game: Skyrim.

Best gift ever: The gift of travel!

My superpower is: Empathy when combined with intuition.

Life philosophy: I believe in dog.
