We also have 3/4 acre fenced yard and another small area fenced yard. Also a fenced deck for fresh air. We have ways of keeping dogs apart from each other or together.

Experienced- Seen almost everythingDekalb, IL

I work at a Humane society for about 10 years now... Started as just a foster to Mom's and babies, puppies, kittens, then adult dogs, I especially take the ones that are sick, need subcutaneous injections, fluids, or big litters... I have lots of patience and love them all!! Now I am there full time, but I have a very flexible schedule and can adjust hours and times to what is needed to be done... Your pet is part of the family and I love it!! Cats, dogs, whatever you need... mail to be brought in, water plants, etc. I have a few jobs now that I do, so I can give you references if you would like. Your animals will be well taken care of!

Animal loving familyElburn, IL

We are a family that loves animals. We have a yellow Labrador retriever. We also have an outdoor cat and 2 rabbits. We have pet sit for neighbors, family, friends for many years. We have been dog sitting through rover.com since 2015. Our home is very pet friendly, we have a fenced yard and will provide lots of love to your pet. We will only pet sit overnight for 1 or 2 families dog at a time, so your pet will get lots of attention. Occasionally the stays could overlap, but we will let both families know when that happens. Only mild mannered dogs please. We have an acre yard with lots of room to run and play and when the weather is nice we will go for walks. Pets must like other dogs and children. We do require a meet and greet to book a stay. We look forward to meeting you and your pet.

Senior dogs loved here :)Cortland, IL

Are you looking for peace of mind while you're away from your sweet dogs? Is it important to you that your dog is being loved and cared for with excellence? If so, our family would love to help! My husband Rich and our 13 year old son are part of the team. Our experience includes our own pet/show dog Proud's Ezekiel 27:37 (white shepherd) for 12 years. Our doggy day care and boarding has ranged from a short two hours going on up to three months. There will be snuggles and outdoor walks a plenty for your dog for the entire day! Because we exclusively watch for one family at a time your "babies" will get special undivided attention. We do our best to be flexible and honest. Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and considering us.

Furs or feathers, large or small.DeKalb, IL

We’re a super laid-back couple who adore all things furry and feathery, and just can’t wait to meet your baby(ies)! Ours is a golden mix who is 9 years and is going on her 5th year as a healthy diabetic. Because of her, we’ve got loads of experience with administering oral medications, as well as injections, and know how important it is to follow a specific feeding regimen. Rain is also nearly blind. so supervision is key to her happiness. We've also recently adopted a new addition to our family--Birdie. She is a long-haired kitten that has definitely added more spice and fun to our lives. :)

Seth is the one with the flexible schedule. He’s a full time student and is only 5 minutes away from home, a majority of the time - perfect for potty breaks and constant check-ins. Melissa works full time and is home by 5:30, just in time to help with the nightly feedings and needed walks for the day. Come see our home; we can’t wait to meet you!
