Welcome to Dog and Runner, Inc.
Dog and Runner, Inc. is the proud creation of Bryan and Melanie Purcell. Avid fitness enthusiasts, their inspiration began during Bryan’s 2007 Marine Corps Marathon training with the help of their neighbor’s behaviorally challenged Boxer, “Ernie”. After a short time of running and training, Ernie’s behavior and anxiety markedly improved which would not have been possible without his regular exercise regime.
We manage Dog and Runner, Inc. with the same focus, attention to detail, and competence that you would expect from anyone in your professional world--except our professional world is dedicated to the dogs. We understand your needs as a Chicago-Land professional, as we too are dog-owning professionals.
We custom tailor a Fitness Program for your dog. From weight loss to behavior management, or even an energy outlet for the middle of the day-we come to you as the answer for your dog's exercise plan. Going away and can't bring Fido with you? Our Dog Sitting Service is a great alternative to cage boarding.
