Our Story


Top Pawknowledgist - Tina Weidenhammer, Owner

Tina moved to Chicago in 2006. They have been working with animals since their childhood. Over the last +30 years, they have gained experience in rescue, rehabilitation, fostering, owning, training, education, puppies & kittens to golden seniors & hospice care etc. Tina pursued a BA in English Literature and MS in Higher Education, worked in corporate & nonprofit, and started various entrepreneurial pursuits. Ultimately, they realized their happiest place was serving animals & their owners. And so what started as casual dog walking & pet sitting in 2006 turned into their full time business, passion & true purpose. Da Vinci Paws is the culmination of their years of experience & continued education to bring their Renaissance Paw self to the pet owning community. ​


"I believe my purpose is to better and deepen

the relationship between people & their paws." ~ Tina
