Its your pets home away from home!Joliet, IL

PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION BELOW. This will help you understand what we offer and what we do not offer.

I have been a pet owner my whole life and in the pet business by providing alternative choices to traditional boarding since 2001. I enjoy providing the type of environment that is going to make your pet feel at home. I realize that pet owners are not looking for a place to just house their pets, but that they are looking for a place that is stress free and enjoyable.

I have been a dog trainer, I have bully breed experience, and exotic pet experience. I also have experience and welcome pets that require medications or have special needs. Someone is almost always home which means lots of attention and less alone time. We work our out of the home time around nap times for the dogs. My three dogs are very friendly and will keep your dogs busy in our huge, fully fenced in yard that measures 98'x88'.

You’re enjoying a vacation, so why shouldn't your pet enjoy theirs too?

We do not require meet n greets, but we do offer them. We do not offer meet n greets within a week of your boarding needs. Please plan ahead as we only offer meet n greets on weekends or at least one week in advance of the date that you need to drop off. We also do not offer meet n greets during holidays. If you do need a last minute stay, we absolutely can accommodate you. I can send additional pictures and and answer any questions via Rover.

Please be aware of our hours. We offer pick up and drop off times between the hours of 6am-8pm. If these appointments are missed, there will be an additional charge.

All dogs 1 yr or older, must be spayed or neutered.

About this sitter:

I have been a Plainfield resident since the fall of 2000. I am a mom of two boys. My older son is in the Coast Guard stationed in Alaska and my younger son graduated high school in 2018. We have always been a family with multiple and different types of pets. We definitely enjoy having other dogs stay and be comfortable while their pet parents are away. Any questions, please ask!

Insured vet tech w/ fenced yardNew Lenox, IL

As a former vet tech and groomer, I’ve always had a huge place in my heart for dogs. I’ve been working with pups for the better part of two decades and have learned a great deal about how to make them happy! I’ve worked with all sorts of different breeds, and every new pup is always a great experience. We’re always excited to bring a new pooch into the family!

Although I’ll be the primary caregiver, pups that stay with us tend to get love from all of us. My husband and three daughters absolutely love dogs and will always be there to provide some extra cuddles or playtime when needed. My husband grew up around very large dogs and horses, so he’s very comfortable helping out.

I am currently a student at an online college, which means that my schedule is fairly flexible. I’m a great match for pups that need a bit more love and attention, or just like to spend their time around people! We always like to go around and take plenty of walks around the neighborhood, so I have no problem with pups that like to get out of the house a bit more.

Our home is a bi-level with tons of room to run around. We also have floor to ceiling windows in the front, which is perfect for scoping out birds and squirrels! The house also sits on a half-acre lot, and we also have chickens that live in a coop there as well. Pups always get a kick out of them! Overall, it’s a very safe neighborhood in a typical suburban setting. All of the neighbors know each other and we definitely look out for one another. It’s a great area for walking around and getting to meet some of the other pups in the neighborhood as well!

Love & Hugs ParadisePlainfield, IL

Hello, my name is Lina Victoria I have been a pet owner for 20 years.

We have two fur - babies currently. Thunder that we adopted 6 years ago and he is the sunshine of our lives, and our princess Ophelia that was our foster but we couldn't let her go. she is 1 1/2 year.

I volunteered as a foster mom for several rescue organizations.

We have a large wood fenced yard for running and playing. I send pictures of your dog daily, so that you can feel confident your dog is being well cared for.

We love to walk dogs around our neighborhood. We care for special needs dogs as well and can administer medicine as needed. We are also open to long term care.

Canine Haven & Playhouse!Shorewood, IL

I am a married, full time teacher and mom of two boys and a dog rescue. I love all dogs and have been dog sitting family and friends dogs for over 8 years. I figured... Why not extend my dog sitting experience to you? Did I mention I am off during the summer and holidays? Yup! I am one of the lucky ones.

We all love to take a vacation or run into a bind at times and struggle to sometimes find care for our fur babies. I am not fond of kennels as oftentimes, I feel, loved ones are left in cages the entire time one is gone and are paid very little attention. Recently, I was in a bind and had to go out of town. All of my family members and friends could not care for Pip on such short notice. I did NOT want to put him in a kennel, so, I reached out further to friends on Facebook to see if they could care for him. This is where a friend referred rover.com to me. I was amazed at all of the local dog sitters who promised to take great care of my dog. I went on a few meet and greets and I instantly fell in love with the service. This allowed me to pick the best care for my dog, so I figured, why not pay it forward to someone else in need. If you are planning that special vacation, going out of town for a weekend or run into an unexpected bind, here is where I can come to your rescue to help you with your fur baby.

I believe our dogs are family members too and I promise to take the best care of your loved one(s) the same way I would treat my own. I am a dog lover and have had several as a child and adult. My husband and I rescued our boy, Pip, who is a lab/pointer (we think), 8 years ago. My husband and I fell in love with him instantly. We like to say he chose us or "rescued" us. He is our fun loving, energetic, yet gentle boy. Pip gets along with everyone, if not, almost everyone. He loves other dogs and children of all ages. He is not aggressive by any means.

I have been dog sitting for over 8 years now. Whether it is family going out of town for a weekend or an extended vacation or just an overnight, I have been dog sitting dogs of all ages and sizes. Let me host your pup!

**Please note, as of Aug. 21st, 2016 we will be moving to Shorewood IL. Into a house with a fenced in backyard and dog run as well as several walking trails nearby and a large dog park too.**

A softy for all furry friendsNew Lenox, IL

I want to give families a chance to have a great vacation and be assured that their dog(s) are in a home filled with love. I am a stay at home mom and I am here most of the day everyday to play and provide your pet with a lot of attention. I have 7 year old twins and an 8 year old daughter who are very gentle with any animal and love having new furry guests stay. We have a nice yard for our dog guests to run and play. I also have been a foster mom for basset hounds since 2006. I have been boarding and walking dogs for 5 years. I absolutely love every minute. I also have training in giving oral and injectable medicine if needed. Plus all furry babies get to live the same life (sleeping habits) as at home. I also take furry guests on walks if requested. I have a basset hound Jack who loves friends and is as sweet as can be. I also rescued another basset hound last May named Patch. He is very playful and loves new friends. He is also very affectionate and easy going. Every dog that has stayed in my house always left happy. When I have had return guests they are so happy to be back. I also keep you informed during your pups stay with pictures, videos, and notes to let you know how much fun your pup is having. When you pup enters my home their care and safety is my top priority.

I am looking forward to having your furry baby as a guest in my home for however long you may need.

Big, fenced yard/couch snugglesNaperville, IL

We have been dog parents for 14 years. Our family includes one dog, Luke (a 9-yr old beagle mix), rescued through ADOPT (Animals Deserving of Proper Treatment), who has never met another dog he didn't like.

After a wonderful experience boarding our own dogs with a sitter we found on Rover.com we decided to join the organization.

My husband and I are both teachers so during the school year our weekdays begin early, but someone is always home by 3:45pm.

On shorter stays (less than one week), if your dog is accustomed to a lunchtime potty break it would be easy for me to run home and let him/her out for a while in our big, fenced-in back yard.

During the summer and on holidays (Winter Break/Spring Break) we are home all day so your pet will have loads and loads of attention!

Our dog sleeps in the family room at night in his crate. If that is your preference we are prepared; no need to lug yours from home (this is up to you). We will never crate your pet without your permission!

In order to ensure the safety of all our guests, as well as our own pets, we will feed your fur-baby apart from ours.

I am comfortable giving oral meds as well as administering injections and am certified in Pet Safety, First Aid and Pet CPR.

*If you have any caged pets also in need of care please let me know - we can work something out!*

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me!

Why I love dog sitting

Our family has consisted of dog lovers ever since we can remember. As a family, we have had dogs for 14 years and all our dogs have been rescues. Personally, during my childhood my family was never without a dog.

Meet my pet

Luke is a beagle/basset mix and is approximately 9. He joined our family from ADOPT in November, 2016 and has become a friendly asset to our Rover family.

About my yard

Our large back yard is completely fenced in and offers lots of leash-free playing and moving-about space. Check out our pictures!

My experience administering medication

I am comfortable administering medication, especially if you do not mind it being hidden in a treat. In addition, I have significant experience administering injections.
