Tony is incredible! Tony has been taking care of Mason while we're away for more than a year now, and every time he does a wonderful job! This time, we got stuck in the Minneapolis blizzard, and Tony graciously took him for an extra night. We were so grateful to know Mason was comfortable and happy. Plus, Tony's photos are the bomb!

Staycation is the New Dog-Adventure

Sometimes the best vacation for your dog when you're away is a staycation that's a 24/7 urban adventure for your four-legged family member in the place he knows best: home. I'm a long-time dog dude who was heartbroken when my most recent companion, a giant Doberman with a a love for adventure, passed away suddenly when his heart proved too huge for the confines of his own gentle soul.

I have a lifetime of experience ...

What Anthony would like to know about your dog

As a long-time owner of several large breeds, I'm capable of caring for every gentle giant, as well as their smaller sidekicks. You can travel comfortably knowing your canine companion (and let's face it, they're MUCH more than just that, they're members of the family!) will be under the watchful eye of a trustworthy chaperon who'll show them a great adventure, while keeping them safe and protected.

And while you're gone, it's my goal to keep them in the lifestyle to which they've become accustomed. To ensure that happens, it would be beneficial to get any of the following details about their daily activities in an effort to mimic their daily lives and give you peace of mind to travel comfortably.

SCHEDULE: Walk times, Play times, Feeding schedule (and how much)
COMMANDS: Let me know what they know (Sit, Lay, Paw, High Five, etc.)
FEARS: The world can be scary (Storms, other dogs, being alone, etc.)
REWARDS: When and how they should be get treats (and how many)
MEDICATION: To keep them safe and healthy (dosages and times)
ALLERGIES: And the importance of a good diet (no-no's and yes-yes's)
SPECIAL NEEDS: Share any special treatment they require
ANYTHING ELSE: Every pet is unique. And there's lots to know about each one. Feel free to share any information you think will make their staycation the best it can be.

When Anthony watches your pet

It's my goal to make your pet's vacation as enjoyable as your own. Their staycation includes tons of exercise and attention -- cuddles, belly scratches, back rubs, hours of playtime and a whole lot more. Urban explorations are in store at some of the finest parks, forest preserves and lakefront areas available in the greatest city in the world.


HOUSE-SITTING: Includes urban hikes, exercise, socialization (or not) and, of course, plenty of playtime and all the fun and attention that can be crammed into a 24-hour period beginning at the time you depart..
DOG WALKING/DROP-IN VISITS: When you're away for the day or the evening and need someone to look after your pet, there are multiple options to fit their adventuring needs and energy levels. .
ADD-ONS: Oftentimes pets require special attention, targeted care or their needs can sometimes extend beyond the hours planned. Life happens. And that's okay. In such cases, additional nominal fees my be necessary and can be discussed at the time of booking or as your schedule or the needs of your pet change.
