The Team


Turning a passion for dogs into a full-time, full-service business, Chris began My Favorite Pet Sitter in September 2003. Born and raised in Southern Indiana, he maintains a strong work ethic he grew up with. His first job was at 14 years old as a dishwasher in a Mexican restaurant in his hometown. He has worked ever since, including while earning a bachelor's degree in communication from DePaul University in Chicago in 2001. Chris wasn't allowed to have a pet when he was young but his sister convinced their family to get a dog when Chris was a teenager. That lead to a life of having either cats, dogs, or both. 



Ronnie joined Chris as a partner in My Favorite Pet Sitter in March 2008 after spending 20 years working in the high-end appliance, kitchen, and bath industry. He often went with Chris on pet sitting visits in the evenings and on weekends prior to becoming a full-time business partner. Ronnie is a native of Georgia, but grew up in Florida and New Jersey before he landed in Chicago, where he and Chris met. He has had pets all his life, including a Doberman Pinshcer named Rex.



We adopted Ridley in December 2016 from Border Collies In Need, a Southern California border collie rescue organization. He was found wandering the streets of Bakersfield and when no one claimed him from the shelter, the rescue pulled him and put him up for adoption. They estimated Ridley to be approximately 5 years old at the time. He's still a high energy herding dog, which is why he is on regular walks with one of us every day.
