I’m currently not working part time from home and have a very flexible schedule. I am available various times throughout the day, 7 days a week.

Faith took care of my dog and 2 cats for 2.5 years until I moved out of the area. My dog quickly bonded with her and she became one of his favorite people! She was sensitive to his needs, detail oriented, and loved my pets like her own! My dog is reactive, but she handled him very well. She made sure to give them all individual attention and think outside the box on how to enrich their lives. I know my pets miss Faith so much. I would 100% trust her any day with them! I promise she will go above and beyond and love your pets like her own!!

Hannah is amazing! We were in a last-minute pinch, and Hannah responded right away and was available for a meet-and-greet and spent time with Freddy twice the following day! She is delightful and sent excellent follow-up notes. We will definitely use Hannah again.

This was my first experience with River and I must say it was great. The entire process was easy and seamless. Bill was awesome with the dogs. Riggs and Gibson came back content and obviously exercised. Thanks so much for your help today while I recover from my foot ailment.

About: I’ve taken care of dogs since I was 9, when I got my first dog. The compassion for animals came to me as a young child. It stuck with me that’s for sure! I have also watched over dogs my family, friends and, neighbors for various reasons. I have walked, fed and, kept many dogs company and made some amazing pawships. Hello I’m Rebecca but most call me Becca. I’m 30 years old. I currently am a full time student. I am a nursing student who goes to school at Herzing University which offers a nursing program that is hybrid (Online and in class). So I can fit pet care in between the down time! I love to walk and hike around so walking your fur baby won’t be an issue. I have an energetic personality so play time is the best time! I have a car so if need be I can travel to take your fur baby where they love to walk or be.

About: I really love the dogs… As kids, gramps and uncle Craig bred springers for local pheasant hunters. My other grandpa True adopted “hard times” the first “rescue”…poor guy followed him home one day and they never left each other’s side. We took home Copper, my first fur friend, when I was eight. Since then I’ve had Nickki our Alaskan Malamute rescue while in high school, and now Saba 12 and Cooper 4. Both are truly gifts from the Dog gods. They have inspired me to open Lazy Dog Lodge. Not a bad spread if you like to watch life out the picture windows, break in a new section of couch, or spread your legs in the dog run out back. My aim here is straightforward: to provide a safe, relaxing, and healthy environment, for our guests to be dogs. Sometimes we are lazy…and sometimes we like to play! Both are encouraged and supported here. I consider it a privilege to make sure your lazy Dog stays healthy and happy with plenty of relaxing, dog days, making new mates, and coming home just as loving and lazy as when they left:) Lazy Dog Lodge is a different dog care setting. With a dog centered environment, and a max of 6 guests, our aim is to have a stress free and laid back environment for dogs to be dogs. With a career driven by problem solving and conflict resolution (my relationship management background), I enjoy getting to know our guest and understanding their unique personalities, and care needs. We keep our playing safe for everyone. And with private rooms and areas, we make sure any personality feels as welcome as we can make them. If you are new to the area, need a back up care giver, or are planning your next trip without your fur friend, we’d love an opportunity to make new mates and care for our fellow Lazy Dogs! Hope to smell ya’ll soon…Saba, Cooper, and Jason We have a large fenced yard, and a big dog friendly house. This is a dogs house, so the dogs can be dogs within reason. This is my primary business and livelihood and consider it a privilege to care for humankind’s best friend 👍

Dayna is such a kind, caring and gentle person and is just great with animals. She has groomed our sassy dog for a couple years, and not only is she awesome at what she does she is so patient with him. Along with being great with other people's pets, she has a few herself and is such a loving pet-mom. I know she'll take such great care of yours, as well.

About: I have had a family dog since I was about 8 years old and have been responsible for caring for animals for all my life! I currently own 2 Shiba Inu's and 2 cats! My dream is to be able to provide a safe and loving home for all animals that I physically can take care of. I love animals and want to do everything to ensure they have quality lives. I work during the week 10-4:30 and I usually can care for pets in the evenings. I am also available all day on the weekends and would love to spend some down time with furry friends! I am not providing in home services at this time. For drop in visits, respecting another persons home is of the utmost importance to me. I am trustworthy and respectful of belongings and your privacy, which is something I value myself! I am happy to speak more with you about any home related responsibilities during the visit, such as home alarm systems.

Ally has been helping me care for my animals since I moved to Illinois in October of 2022. Ally is dependable, incredibly kind, and most of all an avid animal lover. Whether it was helping feed my animals dinner or staying at my home for a weekend while I was out of town, Ally was able to provide excellent care to my pets and stay in touch with me while I was away. Ally seems to approach pet care as if she was caring for her own pets - that is to say she always has an unconditional love for the animals she works with and loves to ensure they are safe and happy. I recommend Ally to anyone looking for a solid, dependable, and loving care taker for their pets! She’s truly amazing!

About: Hello! *I currently work at a Petsmart Pethotel where I work overnights mostly, I also work day shifts at times where I am in the play rooms supervising up to 16 dogs at once. My responsibilities vary! I've grown up with dogs my whole life and being surrounded by creatures that love you unconditionally is a beautiful thing. Personally, i love to exercise and run frequently and running with a dog is such a delight, watching them have fun is probably the most rewarding part of interacting with them. I love working hard, and leading by example. Being able to work with dogs is a huge passion of mine. I really appreciate your time and thank you for taking a peak at my profile, hope to see you soon! Petcare is an important part of my life because I work at a pet hotel, I work with dogs on a daily basis! I also have two dogs of my own, raising them and looking after them has been some of the most rewarding work I've ever done. I care for my pets by making sure they get appropriate exercise and exposure to other dogs. I have a 100 pound German Shepherd/Husky and he does very well in public. I've socialized him well, as well as taken him to training classes. I make sure they have the proper equipment/toys. I try to expose them as much as I can to the world, I take them to pet friendly stores etc.

FIVE STARS - WOULD RECOMMEND! Angela loved and cared for our dog while we were away. The report cards were detailed and included multiple photos each day, which warmmed our hearts while we missed him more each day! When I say she cared for him, I mean she actually CARED! When he wasn't eating his dinner, she tried multiple efforts and then notified me of it. We were able to communicate and remedy it! She also took into consideration the temperature of each individual day, and what would be an appropriate time outdoors for MY individual dog breed and personality. She got to know his likes and dislikes, and played with him with his toys. I will be hiring her again! ?

Connor would be an excellent pet sitter. We have 2 dogs that he takes care of daily. He is a responsible college student wanting to make some extra money this semester. He feeds our dogs, walks them, plays with them regularly, and takes them to the vet when needed. He is very comfortable around animals, especially dogs. He is responsible, trustworthy, and punctual. Your pets would be well taken care of if you were to hire Connor as your pet sitter.
