A home where animals are king.West Chicago, IL

Notice at this time not taking new dogs.

I do require Meet-N-Greets with all new guests. Best for pup and owner for a good fit. No aggressive or untrained dogs please.

This is our home.

A morning walk, playtime and a favorite... exploring the large fenced yard while helping with the daily chores. The rest of the day doing whatever we want, play, sleep, relax and of course more walks. Plenty of room for playing in the playroom downstairs.

Each day is customized to the individual guest. Bob and I give them lots of love as they are in our laps or beside us at all times always supervised. It's like having Grandchildren visit, you love them, spoil them and then return them to their parents. We love it! Photos and messages always sent to you.

Please use Heart Worm and also Flea and Tick preventative to protect your dog since we spend time outdoors in grass and a small wooded area.

Max has had his Flu Shot. Please watch for symptoms, coughing, not eating, not acting normal, fever (100-103 normal)and mucus from nose. I would appreciate all guests have their Dog Flu Vaccine, please consult with your Dr. Takes 5 weeks to be good effective.

Regular guests please send a inquiry if you see I am booked on the calendar for the dates you need and I will get right back to you to discuss accommodations.

I need fur in my family!Geneva, IL

I have had pets my entire life and will always have them in my life. I have been living on my own (out of childhood home) for 15 years and the entirety of that time, I have taken care of multiple dogs. I am very experienced and can anticipate a dogs needs. Two years ago, I nursed my beloved husky while he suffered from terminal cancer. He lived like a king until his last breath. Any pup who stays with me will be treated like family and they will get plenty of exercise and stimulation. This is my full time job so I am constantly home spending time with the pups. They are very rarely left alone and only for very short periods of time when and if the situation arises.

About this sitter:

My husband and I have owned dogs our whole lives. I have been dog sitting for over 25 years. Both my husband and I work full time so our dogs are on their own for about 7 hours. We have 2 boys. They are 15y and 17y and actively help us with our dogs and help us when we dog sit. Many of our regular clients ask if my 15 year old will be home because he runs around and plays with the pups. We love all animals and have owned many. We have had cats, birds, a horse, a ferret, a rat, and dogs. Currently we own 3 well behaved and well trained dogs. We have a private trainer we use for our own 3 dogs. Our dogs are allowed on our furniture and sleep with us, but will follow the owners rules of dogs we watch. Letter of references available upon request.

Why I love dog sitting

I have owned dogs most of my life and have been dog sitting for over 25 years. Animals are a passion of mine. If I didn't work full time with children, I would be working with animals.

Meet my pets

We own three dogs. A mix lab, a terrier mix, and a Boxer.

About my yard

We have a good size fenced in back yard.

My experience administering medication

Love dogs like family!Hanover Park, IL

I have always had a dog while growing up. Love dogs big and small, puppies too. I have a fenced in backyard and believe that dogs need outdoor exercise but should also be in the home like family. We had a Golden Retriever for 14 years and lived her like familt. Before that my famuly had Newfoundlands when I was growing up. I believe dogs should be treated like famIily and because we love them so much we would take care of them for you like they were our own. I will try to send you daily pictures and will always keep you up to date on how they are doing. I would not hesitate to contact you or get back to you when needed.

Loving Home away from homeStreamwood, IL

Dog owners will love my individualized attention and care to their animals. Our house and yard allows for dogs to have much to entertain them during their stay. I have 18 years experience of sheltering and caring for animals and during that time have rescued multiple cats and dogs from the elements of abusive people. My main desire is to provide quality care for your pet. I have one dog & he loves all animals. Your pet will have an enjoyable stay at my home and it will not destroy your bank account.

vet tech here to care for your pet!Saint Charles, IL

Hi my name is Rachel and I moved here to St. Charles about 3 years ago from Chicago! I work as a veterinary technician at a wonderful little family clinic up in Carpentersville. My husband and I have been very pleased to be able to continue our Rover business here in the fox valley. So, if your dog(s) don't mind two mellow cats, a dog loving 5 year old, and a caged bird that is kept safely out of dogs' interaction- I would love to host your pooch at my abode! I lost my old german shepherd quite a few years ago now, and my husband and I miss having a dog (well we had a baby instead!) We plan on having another dog someday but for now Rover has satisfied that need. Our kitties are very dog friendly and have done great with our guests. Having worked in animal hospitals, dog daycares and the like for over 20 years, I have a lot of dog knowledge and can handle almost any pet situation! I am also very experienced and comfortable with giving medications, insulin injections or any other special medical needs your pet might have. Do you have a special needs furry friend? I can handle that? Worried you might be a nervous pet mom leaving your furbaby? I love to keep you feeling as comfortable about your pets' experience and informed as I can through texts and pictures. I can easily recognize discomfort , stress and emergency situations with pets and can act appropriately. You can rest assured your dog is in the best hands with us! And we do honestly treat them as if they are our own. Does your dog love walks at the forest preserve? Dog parks? We dont' mind taking them on an outing if you give us permission. We want this to not only be a vacation for you but also for your buddy while you are away!

Our house is small but comfortable for pets, we have durable gates to separate areas should we have any guests that dont' want to mingle. We have a very large yard (hopefully to soon be totally fenced in - but not quite yet, however for dogs that don't mind a long tether we have that option in the back) We have a big beautiful park just a few steps away too. My husband helps me with the dogs, is main walker and also has experience working as a dog walker and pet sitter. Our 5 year old daughter is very serious about providing excellent care for our guests and is a budding animal care expert in her own right! She is the main "petter"

Please contact me if e sound like a good fit! We can't wait to hear from you.

Trusted, loving pet care!McHenry, IL

I have been caring for animals for over 30 years. I have been boarding in my home for 8 years. This is a "just like home" environment for your dog, and my entire family is involved in the daily care, offering lots of play, hugs and kisses. We love animals and have worked with many local shelters as volunteers in many capacities. We currently have 4 cats, Ollie, Milo, Bud and Milly. Our sweet Jack Russell, Jojo went to the Rainbow Bridge in November (2016). There are no crates or kenneling involved in boarding at my home unless requested by the client. I strive to make your dog as comfortable as possible in our home to minimize stress and separation anxiety. I have many long-time clients that board with me and their dogs are always excited to come to our home to stay. I have a fully fenced back yard for the dogs to run and play with lots of toys, and it is kept clean and free of dog waste. We live on the river and offer one on one play time for dogs that like to swim. I also board cats, birds, rabbits and small reptiles. We understand how scary it can be to entrust your pet to someone new and strive to alleviate your fears. You'll receive updates with photos, and are welcome to call or check in at any time to see how your beloved pet is doing.
