House Sitting in Elwood
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
“Sarah was the best sitter we could hope for for our very first pet sitter! She communicated throughout the day, everyday with pictures and updates. She really cares for your pet as if it were her own! I definitely recommend her!!!”
“Eileen we cannot thank you enough for the care and the love you have gave Sam while we were away! Eileen kept me updated on her and Sam’s day and activities! We have only adopted Sam in July so we weren’t sure how he would do but based on the pictures I would say they both had a wonderful time! We hope to book with Eileen in the future! ❤️🐶🐾”
“WONDERFUL!! My dogs and my home were so well taken care of by Rachel. She is our go-to sitter from now on (if she will have us....haha). The dogs took to her instantly and she sent us tons of pictures and updates. The house was immaculate and even my tomato plants were thriving when we got home. We are soooo fussy about pretty much everything so we feel like Rachel understood and did everything she could to accommodate us and the dogs. Rachel is HIGHLY recommended.”
“I think Mia was our favorite sitter yet! She spent the day with our German shepherd puppy and took excellent care of her! She sent lots of updates and pictures without being asked. Our home was left exactly how it was before. She was so sweet and seemed to really care for our dog! She got her exercise in and made sure she got her medication. Hopefully schedules work and we’ll get to hire her again. Mia was the best!”
“Michelle has been dogsitting for us for over a year now, she has done one night stays to over a week with our sweet golden retriever. I am so thankful for the care she gives our boy and knowing that he is in such good, caring, and reliable hands. He has a very sensitive stomach so has to be fed an extremely specific diet and she keeps him healthy and stomach issues under control.”
“Emma was great from the start. We met before we booked and Emma asked a lot of questions and seemed very intelligent and personable. I felt comfortable after our meeting that she would take great care of our dogs. She communicated with us and sent pictures. Our dogs seemed very comfortable with her and did not seem stressed at all. Thank you Emma. We appreciate you taking such great care of our absolutely spoiled rotten Whippets!!! It's great to be able to relax on vacation and not worry!!”
“Kaylinn was great! We got to do a meet and greet before having her watch Bentley which was nice. Kaylinn stayed at our house for one night and shared photos/updates throughout the stay. Bentley loves her and we will definitely work with her again!”
“Thanks for taking such good care of Daisy!”
“Cary did a wonderful job! She watched our 2 cats & 2 dogs, which one is a puppy. Puppies can be a handful. She was great at communicating with us. She sent updates & lots of pictures. Didn’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns she had. All our pets were taken care of very well. We would definitely book with Cary again :)”
“Isabella was incredible, helping us with our dog and cat while we were in the hospital for our newborn. She was very communicative, and just the most thoughtful pet sitter, anticipating all of our concerns and providing excellent care. She was very diligent about following our preferences for caring for our pets. I think our dog is obsessed with her now because he had such a good time. I know he’d be thrilled to see her again. It’s rare to find someone like her.”
“I have known Denise for over 30 years. She has always been an animal lover. Denise is a very caring and, responsible animal lover. I would have no problem leaving my dog or any other pet in her care.”
“Sara has been a lifesaver! My dog loves her and she is so great with him and other dogs. Very professional and a genuine person. Would highly recommend!!”
About: Natural born dog whisperer. Wanted a Pit bull ended up with a Chihuahua. I truly believe Cuco, my dog, is my animal soulmate. Cuco currently resides with human grandparents due to elderly age and makes occasional appearances at my home. I loved caring for him full time and now hope to have the opportunity to care for your pup part time. I am a patient walker — even if that means infinite stops to sniff stuff. Will always speak to them as I would to a human child. Plus, no human children in household only your pet child. Can help with potty training and social/public anxiety relief. Guaranteed good belly rubs, affection, and fresh bowl of water/food at all times under my care. I’d be thrilled to take very photogenic pictures of them and send them your way along with updates. Thank you for reading, look forward to being of help as needed. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any additional questions and/or concerns. I am a remote employee and am home 100% of the time with your pet. This summer I am taking a summer sabbatical and fully available. When I do return to work, pups are welcomed to take naps on designated desk area (yes even on top of my desk - right next to me for those that need human safety) to enjoy second floor window views (bark at delivery drivers) and naps. Sliding door for them to look outside while inside. Indoor cameras to keep an eye on pup if up to trouble from my office. Designated space in living room, kitchen, office and loft for them.
“Jennifer took excellent care of my 3 fur babies during 2 separate trips I have recently taken! I have a senior cat who requires medication 2x a day along with a special feeding plan, Jennifer made sure he maintained his structured regimen while I was away! I also have 2 large breed dogs that truly loved their time with Jennifer and can’t wait to see her again! I highly recommend her for friendly pet sitting services!”
About: Hello! I work from home full time so I’m almost always available for your pet. I love all animals, especially dogs! I had a toy poodle named Luca who passed away in November 11, 2023 at 15 years old. She was my soul dog and I miss her so much. I’d love to give some of that love I have for her to your pets. I love to be outdoors, so walking and playing with your pup will be a treat for both me and them. I’m also cool with a little snuggle bug watching tv on the couch! I’ve walked and spent time with dogs of all shapes and sizes through volunteer work at a shelter in South Korea (I lived there for 5 years and Luca was adopted from SK). I also walk a boxer mix every weekday at lunch time! You can count on me to love your pet as my own while I’m with them. I have no problem giving medication or any other special needs your dog might have. Send me a message and we can do a meet and greet! Please check my schedule before booking. I work from home but do have schedule meetings each week that I need to attend. I'd love to hang out with your pet and work out a schedule! My home has a fenced in yard with lots of room to run and play, our house is small but we live in a quiet neighborhood with lots of good places to walk.
About: I've taken care of dogs of all kinds, and have the most experience with large breed dogs and cats. I've been fostering with my mom since I was 12, and I love spending time with fuzzy friends! I am currently unemployed and have as much time to care for pets. This may change, though, so I will always stay updated as soon as possible! I take care of animals inside of a clients home, and care for them as their owners would throughout the day, keeping the pets' routine as regular as possible.
“Amanda was wonderful with my two dogs. She took them on plenty of walks and also played with them inside. She was very patient knowing they are both puppies. She spent the night at my home to best take care of my pups. She was very respectful of my home and left it in better condition then she found it. ? I would definitely recommend her and will use her again.”
“Kristin has been watching my pets for five years! I trust her completely with both my elderly cat as well as my dog who can be a bit difficult and stubborn. She always leaves my home in better condition than I left it. She provides a lot of pictures while I’m gone. She’s a very active person in life and can guarantee your dogs will be worn out after a walk with her. Would recommend her to anyone”
“Megan is absolutely phenomenal with dogs and cats. I had the pleasure of working with her years ago when we were both bathers at a dog grooming salon, and she always cared so deeply for all of the dogs that came in, no matter their size, breed, age, or ability. She treated each and every dog as though they were a part of her own family. Since then, Megan has helped take care of my cats for me while I've been on vacation, and my extremely stranger-shy cats warm up to her pretty quickly each time. I always come home to find them well taken care of and just as happy (if not happier!) than I left them. I cannot think of someone I'd trust more with my furry babies than Megan. I absolutely could not recommend her enough.”
“Jackie is exceptionally responsible, which includes but not limited to being punctual, loyal, and following directions. She has a sweet caring heart and would make a great part of your team.”
