“First time dog owner here. I own a puppy gsd and everything is first to me. I needed a sitter her Charlie and lucky to find David! It took me some time to decide if i can leave my Charlie to someone else and my decision to have David as my dog sitter was the best! Its 7 mins away from me he can watch Charlie mostly anytime as long as available. David's place is dog ready! Nice large yard and very we’ll fenced. House got tons of toys and cages to rest on. Clean and neat. He owns a yorkie and a GR! So friendly Charlie and them became best friends right away! I recommend David with a great price and he updates you with pictures to make you feel secure and without worries. Thank you David we will book you again soon!”
Lori & Guillermo E.
“Lori, Wil and Winnie were great at keeping Lucy company while I attended an event. Lucy sometimes needs help adjusting to new spaces so I was relieved when I saw Lori was able to get her settled on the couch. Lori even went to the extent of spoon-feeding Lucy to help her eat dinner since she was snubbing her dinner. Lori, Wil and Winnie were amazing and looking forward to more bookings with them!”
“To start off, I just want to say if you are looking for a sitter and somebody to love your dog like their own, you are on the right profile! Joe is seriously the best person I could have came across. He was very welcoming towards my puppy Frankie, and he was also very knowledgeable towards the type of breed I have. Not only is he a great sitter but he teaches your pet while he has them. There is nobody else that I would trust with my dog besides Joe! He’s also very communicative and understanding, great experience all around.”
“Sprinkles loves her!”
“Joey is a caring and reliable pet sitter and has been a resource to me as a novice pet owner. He takes my avid explorer pup on long walks to sniff her way across town and "hunt" squirrels. He is flexile and responsive to special requests. I am able to work without worry when my pet is with Joey. She eagerly runs to him and clearly enjoys her time in his care.”
“Would definitely recommend Javier! He accepted my dog on a last minute booking. She walked away with him without even looking back or getting stressed about us leaving. He walked and watered her. Thanks for dog sitting!”
“Ari was Great! She was wonderful to help when I needed help last minute! She loves dogs and knows how to care for them!!”
Janette & Charles S.
“Thanks Janette for taking care of Moab for a day. I received pictures and update throughout of his stay. Moab seems to have a good time there.”
About: We are big fans of all animals specially Dogs, we have to beautiful poodles Sukky who is a blind senior, and Robertito who is four years old, we love them so much we had been Foster Dogs 🐕 for Second City Canine rescue for over a year, this has been a great experience because we learned to take care dogs with different characteristics most of them with all kind of problems being neglected and abandoned for previous owner, we are so happy when we have the opportunity to spend time with dogs especially when you know that we are improving their lives in one way o other, so every time that we have a new friend in our home They are part of our family.
“Sarah agreed to sit for my dog Sugar on very short notice, and sent pictures/updates. She is obviously very attentive and loves dogs, I highly recommend!”
“Eileen is wonderful! Our dog requires special attention due to a recent surgery. I was hesitant on leaving him with anyone. She was great with the special needs he required. She was attentive to him and kept us posted on his daily stay with her. She included pictures as well. Will be using Eileen again. Hoping that our pooch is better with his surgery at that time.”
“Ann was great with my dogs, she takes care of them when I’m working or have to go out of town. I’ve spent time in her home while my dogs were there and I can see how great she is with them and they really enjoy being in her company which puts me at great ease. It’s always a bit nerve wrecking leaving my dogs with someone else while I am away but I don’t feel like that anymore. They love her house and her big closed in back yard! I highly recommend Ann to take care of your dogs.”
About: I have been around animals my entire life. I had both cats and a dog growing up, which I helped care for. My love for animals continued into my adult life. I recently lost my 18 year old (very high maintenance) miniature pinscher, Buddy. I currently have two cats, a Persian (also very high maintenance when it comes to grooming) and a Lilac point Siamese. People always joke that they want to come back as one of my pets in their next life because of the love, care and attention I give them. Not only do I have almost 20 years of care experience with my personal pets (cough family), but I am also many of my family/friend’s go-to pet sitter when they travel. I have experience with pets of all life stages; young, adult and senior/geriatric. Usually with senior care comes medications, specific routines, grooming, etc, for which I am well-seasoned. My husband and I have decided to wait awhile to get another dog, meaning, I have an abundance of love to give. p.s. Attention dog owners: I’m a runner so if your dog likes to get some short distance runs in, I’m your gal. Generally, I work from home 2x per week and I am in office the rest of the week. My boss (dog owner aka his kids) is also very flexible and understanding when it comes to working from home when needed. There were many times towards the end of my love bug Buddy’s life that I needed to work from home more. When I am in office, I usually leave around 8:30am and return around 5:30pm, but my husband who is in office Mon-Fri, returns home around 3:30-4pm. My overall schedule is very flexible. I have pet sitted in both scenarios: For in MY home care- I have a fenced in backyard for quick potty breaks and for play. I also live close to and frequent often the Des Plaines River trail for walks/runs. Animals can roam free or be crated when I’m away or I can give them their own quiet space away from the kitties depending on the owner’s preference. Client home care- I understand that this is sometimes easier when it comes to routines
“Andrea was so helpful when I had a family emergency and needed daycare for my spunky 1-year-old pup (Frieda). Though we weren’t able to meet beforehand, Andrea was very professional and asked great questions about what Frieda needed throughout the day. When we arrived, Andrea gave us a tour of where Frieda would be hanging out. Spoiler: it was an awesome, large fenced-in backyard with tons of smells and a sweet older dog to show her the ropes. Andrea is a great communicator - she sent me several updates throughout the day, including pictures, which I really appreciated. During such a crazy day, it was comforting to know that Frieda was staying with someone who cared about her safety and making sure she had a fun day. I highly recommend Andrea and will book with her in the future.”
“Terri did an amazing job of taking care of Bruno. We just got him just a few days and Terri understands the needs of our pet and treat him as her own. She has her pet Harley who is great with other dogs also helped Bruno on learning the new things. Highly recommended!”
“Blanca is amazing and very lovely with my dogs. She treats them like family. Shes very responsible, trustworthy and always goes above and beyond to ensure they are happy and well cared for. I highly recommend her as a pet sitter. Trust her to give your little ones the attention and care they deserve!”
About: Dogs are my whole life. I’ve been with/trained multiple hunting dogs throughout my life. I currently have my 9 month old Lab fully trained at hand signal command. I work full time as a plumber. I am available every day after 4pm and all day on weekends! I can stop by for house visits or take care of your pup over night. I have a lab/setter mix so everyday my day starts and ends with him; training, playing, walking, care etc. I have a large crate if needed for any dogs. My dog is crate trained, and we have plenty of toys and dog beds for use!
“She did a wonderful job taking care of my slightly anxious dog.”
“Ellie is an absolute animal lover and is great at taking care of pets. She has walked my family's two border terriers, Izze and Tucker, which is not an easy task. Ellie did an excellent job at managing both dogs that are incredibly high strung and aren't always the friendliest to other dogs that they encounter. I have complete confidence that Ellie can manage any type of high energy dog and will be able to keep them safe.”
“Mark and his wife were amazing! They took such great care of our two high energy pups! We were gone the whole day and they made sure they were walked and fed and then lots of cuddles. We will definitely be bringing them again sometime.”
