Cara was fantastic to work with from start to finish. Super responsive, shared lots of good information and was more than happy to work with our schedules. We got great pics while she watched our dog - he clearly had a blast staying with her and we'll be booking again for sure. Couldn't ask for more!

Cara was great with our pup! She sent photo updates daily and was very communicative. Will definitely have our dog stay with her again!

Cara did an awesome job with our husky and Aussie! We got married this past weekend and she even brought them to us for photos during the day! The pups loved her and we would 100% use her again. Highly recommended!

Experienced Animal Lover

I graduated from Virginia Tech in spring 2016 with a double degree in both Animal Sciences and Biological Sciences. I then moved to Chicago for a research position with Northwestern University. My apartment is located in Streeterville. I have been surrounded by animals my entire life and now that I have moved here, I am looking for a side job that will fill that void!

I have pet sat for various families starting back 13 ...

What Cara would like to know about your dog

Before sitting a dog, I like to know how they act towards other dogs and animals, that way I can avoid when possible if necessary! I do not have any breed preferences.

When Cara watches your pet

I will take your dog(s) on walks nearby your place, exploring around to find fun and new courses so they never get bored. I enjoy taking dogs also for runs if they can handle it! If there are any dog parks nearby and they do well with other dogs, I am happy to bring them there to play off leash and play fetch!
