Congrats to Boris the Boston Terrier puppy for being our Pet of the Month for May 2019! Still a young pup, Boris deserves a round of apPAWS for toughing it through the rough Chicago winter during his first months. But don't worry little guy, warmer days are coming! Boris enjoys meeting just about everyone and soaks up all the attention he gets on his walks. People in the South Loop can't help but stop and say hello to this little munchkin. Boris accepts treat bribes and belly rubs in exchange for his indelible cuteness. Who could say no to that face? Have a great month Boris!
Meet the young and frisky Howie! He's a goldendoodle with an infectious spirit and indomitable positive energy. We love walking this silly guy. He's likely to stand up and give you a big hug. Some have speculated he might be a person in a dog suit, but that's just conspiracy theory. In reality Howie is one of the nicest, friendliest dogs you'll ever meet. Whether it's kids walking home from school, or busy people bustling around Old Town, Howie spreads smiles and positivity to all he meets. Have a great month Howie!
Visiting the sweet and loyal Peligro is truly a treat for our walkers. You'd be hard pressed to find a dog with kinder eyes than this beautiful German shepherd and lab mix. "Peligro" may mean danger in Spanish, but to us Peligro means big hugs, face licks and fun walks. An expert fetcher, she could spend all afternoon chasing her ball back and forth. Give her a treat and some chin scratches and you'll have a best friend for life. We're proud to have Peligro a part of the Majestic Paws family. Have a great month Peligro!
Meet the unique and indelible Poppy! She's a two year old, white golden retriever with a personality big enough to fill a room. When her walker arrives she instantly flips on her back for belly rubs. Out on her walks Poppy is a social butterfly, stopping to make friends with all the neighborhood dogs. She loves her walks and everyone she meets along the way. Stop to pet her and you'll have a friend for life. Have a wonderful new year, Poppy!
How appropriate it is that for our October Pet of the Month we chose a dog with Autumn colored fur. You can search your whole life and won't find a sweeter pup than Charley. She's a long haired mini Dachshund with tons of personality. Just wait until she rolls on her back for belly rubs. Your heart will melt! Walking Charley is a blast. Her adorable little trot around the neighborhood is "aww" inducing. Charley has the cute factor on lock down, and that's indisputable. One look into those eyes and you'll get the warm and fuzzies. Have a great month Charley!
Anyone who has a pet in the home knows that they bring endless joy and happiness to our lives. From puppy cuddles in the morning or sweet purrs from your kitty in the evening, pets are sweet as can be. This is why we need to make sure that we aren’t harming them when we use harsh chemical cleaners around the house. The ASPCA actually reports that household cleaners are one of the top pet poisons!
Whether it’s an evening walk or an overnight dog sit, Riot is a great hang! He’s a gentleman Corgi who loves people, walks, and cuddles. Riot is a glutton for attention and would love nothing more than for you to stop and say hello while he’s out exploring the neighborhood. He’ll wag his tail and put his ears back for as long as you’d like to pet him. Expressive, friendly and loyal to his owner Robert, Riot is the epitome of a good dog. We’re ecstatic to have him as a member of the Majestic Paws family. Have a great month Riot!
With all the hustle and bustle of moving, it can create a stressful environment for your dog or cat. They can be unsure as to why you are moving around your belongings and may feel uneasy about where you are headed. There are several things that you can do before, during and after a move to help your furry friend adjust.
It would be hard to find a friendlier, more loyal pup than good ol’ Magnus. With his natural charisma, Magnus has never met a dog or human he couldn’t charm. His favorite activities include sniffing every inch of his block in Lakeview and following his mom, Lauren, around like her shadow. Magnus loves his walks, but if he had his druthers he’d skip getting his paws wiped after a rainstorm. Of course, it’s all worth it for that treat and fresh water at the end! Keep doing your thing Magnus, King of Lakeview!
If you own more than one dog, you may want to keep things simple and feed them all the same food. Or, you may choose out different foods for each dog.

Dogs love the wilderness, and if your dog spends too much time cooped up in a small apartment or a way too small backyard, taking time to get them out onto the trail as often as possible is something that every dog owner should attempt to do. Whether you are planning an intense weeklong backpacking trip with your dog or simply going for an hour stroll through your local state park hiking trails, there are a few essential things you need to know to make sure that your hiking trip with your dog goes smoothly and memorably. Below, we offer the top six dog hiking tips to make sure that both you and your best friend have the time of your lives.
Let’s picture this. You and your furry buddy are back from the whole afternoon running around, playing hide and seek, throwing and catching balls and chasing squirrels. He is so tired and as soon as both of you get down to the living room; he lays his body on the warm bed by the fireplace. Suddenly, you raise your head and notice his legs twitching. "He must see something in his dream," you wonder. But he is wide awake now but continues to scratch. That is when you freak out and wonder what is going on. Well, that scenario is a signal for a thorough check on your dog's coat for fleas and ticks. Don't worry just yet because these little nuisances are ordinary and with some measures, you can keep things under control....
Meet Riley, the sweetest fuzzy pup and best polar bear cub impersonator in all of Chicago. With assistance from her equally friendly kitty counterpart, Chunk, they make an unstoppable force of cuddles and cuteness. Riley loves taking easy walks through sunny parks and always welcomes some good pets (Chunk likes getting in on this part too). Riley’s relaxed attitude will make even the most anxious want to slow down and join her on a ray-filled stroll or simply just kick back for some pets
Meet Jacie, guaranteed to melt your heart if you're lucky enough to run into this cutie. After choosing which of her favorite toys to take out, she's ready to hit the streets and make anyone that passes her smile and swoon with her strut and love for anyone that falls in love with her. When she isn't out on the town, Jacie is always thrilled to be pampered with pets, laying out to soak up some sun rays, and is sweet enough to give you a kiss just for saying, "Hello." For this and so many other reasons, Jacie takes Pet of the Month for June!
Cesar is one of the most energetic pups at Majestic Paws and that’s the reason our walkers love him. Even though he loves his walks, Cesar would much rather spend his time playing fetch with our walkers in the yard. Normally our visits with Cesar consist of 25 minutes of constant fetch, and even though he’s panting the whole time, we get the feeling that he could go a lot longer chasing after his favorite ball. For this reason, and his irresistibly cute smiley face, Cesar is our King of the Month for April 2017.
Our newly adopted dog is a delight! However, in all the excitement of finding your new companion, shopping for your new pet wasn’t foremost on your mind. Not to worry. We’ve put together a dog supply list to help you round up everything you need to welcome your pooch home. Keep in mind, some shelters might not let you acquire a dog until they know you have the necessary supplies. This new dog checklist will guide you on your shopping trip—including tips for how to choose each item.
Being a parent is never easy. You have to raise your kids well and also provide for their needs at the same time. There are instances when you will have a hard time dealing with their tantrums or in teaching them important lessons. It is great if you have a companion in raising them. Whether you believe it or not, dogs are perfect in helping raise your kids. They might not understand your children, but they are of help in many ways.
Whether he's wigglin' & waggin' at the door or pathetically-cute and in bed when we arrive, Luigi always loves his pets and walks at our daily visits. Though not much ground is covered with his slow n' steady pace, his wobble warrants plenty of pedestrian pets. His walks are about quality over quantity as the sniffs are thoroughly sniffed and the humans are thoroughly watched. His cute and lovable personality are why our walkers can't get enough of him, and what makes Luigi Majestic Paws pet of the month!
