This was Buddy's first day care experience with Samantha and he just loved it... Her dogs were amazing with him and they quickly became very good friends. I would highly recommend her. We received regular updates. She is very passionate and professional in caring for these fur babies. Her house looks like a beautiful retreat for the four legged babies. I cannot thank you enough for taking such good care of Buddy.

Scott was incredibly friendly and easy to book with. They took such great care of our husky Bolt and sent plenty of cute pictures and updates on our boy. They easily accommodated our schedule and had the cutest little pug that our husky loved. Bolt enjoyed his time and got to play and make friends with some adorable dogs, he even got a yummy treat to take home with him at the end. If you are in need of a an excellent sitter who clearly loves dogs and enjoys taking care of them, then we can’t recommend Scott enough! We will definitely be booking again!

Kayla has been such a great sitter for my fur baby! She is super sweet and let's me know how is doing throughout the day. She has a clear love for animals and my sweet boy is always happy to see her! She even watched him over the holiday for me and he loved it! 10/10 would recommend!

Brenda was great! This was our first time using Rover so we were a little nervous dropping Wrigley off. Brenda sent us multiple pictures and updates throughout the day! He came home happy and appeared to be well taken care of! We will definitely use Brenda again!

Savannah was extremely responsive with my inquiry. We did a meet and greet before she did at at home visit while we were out of town for the night which Toby loved her. She made sure she knew everything about Toby and what Toby needed while we were gone to make sure he was comfortable. Would recommend Savannah

About: I’m the friend that’s relied on for training support. Puppy, Senior citizen, separation anxiety to adoptee experience; 10+ years. I’m passionate about learning new training techniques, implementing, and teaching. Every dog and companion deserves to understand each other. I have a 3 year old xl breed. Every day we focus on consistency and communication. I personally focus on the individual needs specific to my companions for the best life experience. From avid exercise to slow paced walks to muscle and joint massage and even reinforcing habits that create healthy confidence. I love paying attention to body language and understanding what it means for a companion as well as the companion’s caretaker and being able to provide comfort and training techniques based off of that. I can’t wait to be a certified dog trainer and help people understand there’s no such thing as a bad or impossible breed. It’s all about understanding, communication, implementation, and consistency. My goal is to keep your companions day as regular and consistent as possible. We will be on time for walks, they will get a lot of attention, I love animal body language so I’ll be able to build a connection with your companion based on their comfortability level, and I prefer to go by your rules. I understand no dogs on couches and I also fully support couch cuddles. It’s all about your companions happiness and well being along with providing ease and comfort for you and I will make sure to provide everything you need to maintain that. I chose a neighborhood great for king walks and close to downtown for easy access to greys lake. apartment that offered a dog park for comfortable potty breaks. And being right next to greys lake offers great adventures. I can crate if required, as I crate my 2 yr old for his safety. I encourage as many “rules” and your guidance to abide by to make your companions day to day as regular and enjoyable as possible. This is all about you guys and making your lives easy and comfortable.

I absolutely recommend Nichelle to work with dogs of any sort. I know Nichelle to be loving and doting and VERY protective of animals particularly with dogs. I personally have left my dog with her occasionally and enjoyed seeing her interact with dogs, especially to be noted is that she has a big beautiful warmth about her that attracts neighbors and pets. Please consider her as a candidate for a position with your company, she will bring warm and love to any pet in her care. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at (845 ) 649-9854 Sincerely, Kelly Cahill
