Pet Sitting & Drop Ins in McKinley Park, Chicago
Book a pet sitter to stop by your home a few times a day to feed and play with your dog.
“I have used this pet sitter multiple times for my two cats. He is very trustworthy with my important typical concerns (door, house, shows up time/day promised, reads the specific directions I provide AND follows them) and of course is great with my cats. The feeding/water change is always done as is should be, which of course I expect -- but the reason I prefer this pet sitter is because he's just a natural with them. He's gentle and patient and in a quick period of time earned their trust. I just want my place to be safe, my animals basic needs met, but getting lucky is someone that doesn't come to your house and sit on their phone the whole time but is actually there to authentically interact with your pets as a pet sitter should. I have yet to have a pet sitter I've used off Rover not to sit on their phone the whole visit. Even when I specifically indicate I have cat cams up and ask them to interact with them -- they still just sit on their phone. This sitter has moved out of my area which is really unfortunate, I used him for long and short stays and he was very easy to work with. A very good option if you expect actual caring and interest in your pets. A+, five stars, wish he would move back!”
“Janette was amazing, 10/10 recommend her! She accepted my last minute booking on a very busy weekend, communicating quickly and kindly to coordinate the drop-in. She did an amazing job of communicating before, during, & after the drop-in even when I wasn't able to promptly answer her. Janette even went above & beyond - going out on a limb to greet my very scared cats with treats!”
“LUPE IS AMAZING! I can’t say enough good things here. Lupe was so responsive, thoughtful—amazing catographer and sent pics during each visit. I never felt worried about Randy while Lupe was watching him. She even took out my garbage and brought in my mail! I will definitely contact Lupe again for another drop-in.”
“Cassie was excellent with our dog Meatball! She was very loving and caring with him and he can’t wait to see her again! She was very flexible working with us so Meatball could get the proper care while we were on vacation! Very dependable, clean and caring, we would definitely recommend her!”
“Pam was great. Very reliable and my dogs instantly loved her. Can't say that enough because my dogs are very attached to me and don't like strangers at all. I would recommend her to anyone that has a hard time leaving their pets for extended periods of time.”
“Incredible dog walking. Ovie was well taken care of all week and gave me such peace of mind. Hailey was extremely communicative all along the way. I’ll be booking with Hailey again!”
“Shiri is a wonderful care taker for my dog! My dog is an old and very particular dog who doesn’t do well with a lot of people but he loves Shiri! Due to my dog’s age he also has specific needs and instructions in which Shiri is sure to complete with each visit. She is also reliable and never misses an appointment that we schedule together. Thank you Shiri for caring for my beloved French Fry as if he was your own!”
“Josie is an exceptional young woman with unwavering love, care and dedication towards animals, particularly cats. She fostered a deep connection not only with our cats, but all of our neighbors as well. Her genuine passion for animals shines through in everything she does, making her an invaluable asset to any pet owner seeking a responsible and loving caregiver.”
About: Hello, Let me start by saying I got my first dog in 5th grade and she was my best friend. When I finally was age appropriate I just knew my passion would be in a field w/ animals. I’ve worked at many places from kennels to daycares. I’ve been doing this kind of work professionally for 5 years and counting I currently work as a full-time dog walker so I’m basically always available for dog walks and sitting. I work from 11-7 and I’m able to come back home inbetween work for potty and feeding breaks. I’m off every Sunday and Monday. I have a 2 bedroom home w/ doggy gates, to separate my dogs from visitor dogs if needed. But I definitely prefer to stay at the clients home w/ there pet.
“Emily is just so amazing with my two picky eater cats. She has taken good care of our boys and house a few times and hopefully many more to come. Thank you Emily for being you!”
“I can't thank Jasmine enough for taking care of Savannah while we were on vacation. Her dedication, love, and attention to detail truly set our minds at ease. From daily walks to playtime, Jasmine went above and beyond to ensure Savannah's comfort and happiness. We received regular updates which made us feel connected. We are grateful to have found her and will definitely entrust Savannah to her care in the future. Thank you, Jasmine, for being a true lifesaver for both us and Savannah!”
“Candice is amazing!! We had some technical issues but she was so sweet and accommodating!! So grateful she was able to check in on my sweet boys ?”

“David took great care of our kitty for a weekend of drop-in visits! Super responsive, very detailed updates with photos, and overall great communication.”

“This is my second time using Coretta to watch my pets and she was just as amazing as the first. Her updates are so thorough, thoughtful, and sweet and can tell she genuinely enjoys caring for my animals.”
“Christine was wonderful with my dog Denver. She watched him for two weeks, and sent several photos of their adventures together. Denver was very comfortable with her didn't experience his usual separation anxiety.”
“Ericka helped us while we were on vacation by checking on our cat, making sure she had fresh food/water and a clean litter box. She sent us pictures of our kitty and gave us updates at every check-in. Would definitely recommend her!”
“I'm usually pretty nervous about leaving my dog with new caretakers while I'm away on trips or stuck in office but I lucked out finding someone as reliable and awesome as Logan! My 5 year old pup absolutely adores him and the attention/care he receives when Logan comes to visit. I love the communication and consistent updates that I get from Logan when he's overnight sitting for me or just taking my fur child for walks around the neighborhood. You can tell how much he loves dogs by how patient he is with not only the doggos but their anxious parents as well. It's a relief to know I can leave my fur child with someone I can trust when I have to be away. I honestly don't know what I would do without him!”
