Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your dog.
“We were glad to find Coleen last minute and having our 2 cats well taken care of. She made effort to get familiar with the kitties who can be shy and scared of new people. She was also thoughtful in their comfort level both with her and all around in the apartment when we were away. It was assuring to read the detailed visit summary that Coleen made.”
“Amanda was wonderful with my cat, she dropped in on him for a week while I was away. She took lots of pictures and gave updates on how he was doing. Would definitely book her again for any future sitting needs!”
“Our first booking with Marissa was awesome! Very friendly, thorough, and responsive. She’s also the best pho-dog-rapher ever, we loved the snaps.”
“Abby has been doing weekly visits for our dog, Trixie for about a month now. Trixie is a rescue who has a lot of anxiety and has had some issues with dog walkers in the past (she would hide and refuse to go outside). However, she loves Abby! Abby took the time to slowly get to know Trixie and didn't push her when she was nervous. She was just what Trixie needed. Abby sends us detailed updates and photos each visit which is greatly appreciated. We are so glad we found Abby and highly recommend her!”
“Malcomn is literally a dog whisperer. He is absolutely incredible! My pup has high anxiety and doesn't take well to many people. He ADORED Malcomn upon meeting him. Malcomn is extraordinarily communicative, responsible, conscientious, timely, and not only does he take the most amazing care of your pup - treating them like they are his own - he sends frameworthy pics after every walk, including a detailed summary of the dog's activities. I trust Malcomn to look after my Brody as well (or even better!) than I do. Brody got excited daily to see Malcomn and had the best time. He was ecstatic to spend time with him. Our biggest regret in moving was leaving Malcomn. Don't hesitate to hire him - he is the ABSOLUTE BEST!!! He develops a close relationship with your fur baby and if you invest the time to get to know him, he'll do the same with you. Saying he is one in a million is not enough - he's one in a zillion! I cannot recommend Malcomn highly enough.”
“Ale took care of my 80 pound blue nose, while many people will be scared to take her in, ale was super welcoming with her. She sent me many pictures and updates about my pup. I'm grateful for the amazing care she provided for my dog! Will definitely book again and recommend”
“Helena was just wonderful with our two dogs. The most stressful part of traveling is how our dogs will be with someone new. She was attentive, caring, and reliable. We will definitely reach out to her again! Thank you”
“Elayne was absolutely wonderful! She took such good care of my cats and was really good at making sure I was especially updated on my cat who is newly taking medicine. I received lots of pictures and videos of the girls playing, as well as written updates and notes. I would recommend Elayne 100% for her enthusiasm and kindness, and hope to work with her for my next trips moving forward. Thanks again Elayne!!”
“Exceptional cat care! Anna is clearly just a really nice person, and that extends to being a great friend to our cat. She is reliable and detail-oriented, and shared excellent pictures and videos. We will definitely be in touch with Anna in the future!”
“Erin is incredibly responsible and diligent. I wouldn’t hesitate to leave any pet in her care. She loves animals and is detailed in following instructions. Highly recommend!”
“Samantha was wonderful! We truly appreciate her looking after the cats and sending updates with pictures.”
“If you need someone reliable, experienced, and caring to take care of your dog, look no further than Katelyn. She is one of the only people I trust to watch my dog and she’s truly the best. My dog has pretty significant health issues and Katelyn has no problem giving him oral meds, insulin injections, and eye drops. When he’s with her I never have to worry, and I know that he’s well taken care of and loved. She also has two dogs of her own and has extensive experience fostering dogs of all shapes and sizes. I simply cannot recommend her enough!”
“The dogs really seemed to like Robin! This is really the first time we have left Shasta this long and she did great. We will definitly use Robin again.”
“Cassidy loves all dogs. Seriously, I’ve never met anyone else who loves dogs as much as he does. He stops to pet dogs all the time and compliments owners on how good they care for them. He has a very gentle demeanor which dogs can sense, and so many of them seem to instantly like him. Cassidy is kind, generous, and extremely responsible. He really would make a wonderful employee and dog walker!”
About: Hello! My name is Kendall and I am a librarian who lives in the near west suburbs of Chicago. I have had pets, both cats and dogs, throughout my entire life. I currently have a 14-year-old cat named Frances who has been with me for 9 years, and she is the light of my life. I have several years of experience caring for pets, and have met clients through pet care apps, a professional pet care company by whom I was employed, and also friends and acquaintances. I have dealt with a wide variety of breeds, sizes, and ages of dogs, and feel very comfortable caring for cats, birds, and other small pets as well. I would love to help you care for your furry friend! I am available on weekends, early mornings and late in evenings. I work full time but have a flexible schedule, so I can also potentially make availability during the daytime on week days. I understand that every pet owner has their own preferences and routines that work for them, and I am glad to give each pet the individual attention that they deserve. I follow instructions thoroughly while also maintaining a sense of alertness and adaptability in case unexpected issues arise.
“Morgan was very friendly and competent. She took our dog on long walks. Would definitely recommend Morgan to anyone.”
“Outstanding dog sitter! Reliable, caring, and attentive to my pup's needs. Highly recommend for anyone seeking a responsible and loving pet caregiver! Love the service!!”
“I know Tatiana personally and have observed how they care for their own cat - which is with so much love and attention to detail. They are very observant and notice everything the cat is doing or not doing and they respond immediately to be sure the cat is ok. I truly believe they would take care of your pet with the same love and attention, They are very able to follow detailed directions and would do everything just as you would for your pet. My highest recommendation.”
“My little Buddy had a great time with Rushay this past weekend. When I was leaving out of town I was worried because my regular dogsitter was out of town too. I remembered seeing Rushay walking her dog and thought I should ask her. I did and she agreed and I can say that my Buddy had a great time. I could tell just by seeing their interaction when I stopped by to collect him.”
