WE MAKE EXERCISE !

Carina Heidi Brinkmann, a believer of all things cruelty free, has spent the last 6 years working as a high volume group dog walker in the Bucktown neighborhood. Before Chicago, she spent a handful of years rehabilitating street dogs of Costa Rica. It was there she honed her craft as a dog care professional having a personal rescue pack of 8 dogs, all family! Her passion for pooches is as genuine as it is based on true love for all animals.

WE MAKE EXERCISE FUN!

Running to stay fit was always a chore for James Pszanka – until he started training with dogs. A volunteer as the PAWS Chicago animal shelter for the past decade, Pszanke began taking the dogs on a run before their training sessions to them exercise and help them focus. It was as much of a benefit for him as it was for them. Running with the dogs is now the only way he prepares for a marathon. A 20-mile run goes by quickly when you divide the time equally with the dogs. The marathons themselves allow him to give back in different ways. He’s a top fundraiser on Team PAWS, which participates in various races to raise money and awareness for no-kill shelters.

Testimonials

Our dogs are very sweet but both are big, strong rescues who need a little ‘extra’ attention on walks and in training. We didn’t want them to forget all their manners after being walked by someone other than us, which we noticed was happening. We reached out to Curtis Scott who helped us with training when we first got our dogs and he recommended Carina. We’ve been using Carina for dog walking and some training for over several months now and we couldn’t be happier. We all loved her from the beginning. She is kind and smart and is wonderful with our pit bull and great Dane. She is a terrific resource and we look forward to a long relationship with her, not only as our dog walker but also in providing training & guidance. We are very thankful to have found Carina!

Carina Brinkmann is an invaluable asset to Famous Fido Adoption Alliance! She comes in every Saturday to help work with the bigger and usually harder to handle dogs, which is not a task that just anyone can do. It is a big responsibility to be trusted with taking dogs off the premises and even handling some of them.

Gloria Lissner, the founder and director must know that the select few people she entrusts with helping share responsibility of caring for animals that society has let down of not only as a serious passion for helping animals, but also knowledge of animal behavior, including subtle changes in body language and comfort of the animal to make sure they are not put in any dangerous situations for animal or handler. Many of our dogs come from situations where they may have behavioral issues and many of them need lots of work on socialization and manners. They look forward to their time with Carina, who takes them for walks and. exercise, works on their manners, etc. We depend on special people like Carina and so do the dogs!
