Claire was THE BEST!! She was in regular communication with me before and during her stay. I could tell my dog and cat were in good hands and having a great time! She catered to their needs and their quirks. She was confident with my dog's health issues and medications. I already have her booked for my next several trips. Book her with confidence - you and your pets will be happy you did!

Shelter Volunteer/Pre-Vet student

I have always had a love for animals but didn't realize my deep passion for animal welfare until I started volunteering at a local Humane Society. The work accomplished there has led me to return to school and pursue a pre-veterinary path. I have been accepted into UIC's Biological Sciences program and will start in the fall of 2018.
Ever since I can remember there has been a dog in my life, whether it be ...

What Claire would like to know about your dog

All breeds welcome:-)
Before sitting your pet(s) I would like to know if there is anything that I should be aware of:
-medical conditions
-fears
-triggers
-bite history
-etc.
None of the above will deter me from treating your pooch unlike my own however, complete transparency is a must for safety reasons.

**ALL pets MUST be on your profile. That being said, I am willing to drastically lower sitting fees for pets that require minimal care such as certain breeds of small animals, birds, and fish.

All petcare differs and will be priced fairly, these are just examples:
•If you have a healthy rabbit that requires care I have no issue doing this for $2-7/day-pricing will differ on feeding, socialization, and cleaning needs
•If you have healthy budgies, I also have I have no issue watching them for $1-7/day. Again, pricing will differ on feeding, socialization, and cleaning needs.
•If you have a fish species such as a betta or goldfish, depending on size of tank and feeding and cleaning needs, $1-$3/day is fair to me.

Any animal that requires more care: bottle-feeding babies, birds such as cockatoos, macaws, etc. are more than welcome when sitting. Rates will be adjusted appropriately.**

**Under no circumstances will I sit an untreated sick animal. Proper veterinary care MUST be provided as I firmly believe all animals deserve to be cared for.**

When Claire watches your pet

Taking a walk in the neighborhood, playing around in a backyard, and/or working on commands are just a few things you can expect that your pup will do with me.
If there are any places or activities that you have a preference towards, please let me know.

**Not including potty time and backyard play, all dogs can expect at least ONE walk/day. The duration will differ upon age, energy level, size, and weather. If you would like to add more walks and outings please let me know BEFORE the sitting through Rover messaging. I'm pretty reasonable with adjusting rates based on needs. The only reason this policy has been added is verbally relayed instructions vs. printed out expectations that are first seen only upon arrival at sittings, are sometimes altered greatly. I'm extremely sorry for the added inconvenience.**
