With over 20 years pet care experience and a Bachelors of Sciences degree in Animal Sciences from the University of Illinois's pre-Veterinary program, it was only natural for Natalia to start Divine Canine Pet Care Service 10 years ago.  Natalia's extensive animal care experience ranges from veterinary medical assistance to animal welfare at various animal shelters, but her true passion lies in canine behavior.  Natalia has spent countless hours studying canine behavior and behavior modification with a strong emphasis on canine social behavior.

Natalia’s favorite place, both professionally and recreationally, is Montrose Doggy Beach, where she spends countless hours observing the joyous, interactive experience of the dogs as they run, swim and frolic with their furry friends.  And since she recognizes how incredibly blessed Chicago's dog owners are to have such a valuable resource for exercising their four legged companions, Natalia volunteers her time as a member of the board for MonDog, the non profit organization dedicated to maintaining Montrose Dog Beach as a safe, clean environment for dogs to play.
