I was hesitant on using Rover for our three dogs due to it being individuals instead of a business. However, once I made contact with Dawn through a few messages, I warmed up to the idea of using Rover. Dawn came over to do a Meet & Greet with our three dogs and they loved her! After the meet and greet we booked Dawn that evening for our boarding needs. Dawn is very intelligent and ...

Home full time, Dog trainer

Being a stay-at-home dog mom is the most fulfilling work and I cherish every single minute of sharing my day with my fur babies: Micah, our two-year-old Lab mix and Sweetie Pie, our seven-year-old American Bulldog mix, and of course, our easygoing six-year-old kitty named Little Mo. My fiancé, Sebastian, works early mornings and late nights, but I’m around all day caring for my four-legged children as well as other adorable furry friends. I ...

What Dawn would like to know about your dog

As a longtime dog trainer, when dogs board with me, I work with them one-on-one for 1- 2 hours a day working on basic commands (sit, down, stay, etc) to keep your pup in tiptop shape! I also offer private training sessions and doggy training bootcamp––feel free to ask! I accept all breeds, sizes, ages, and temperaments. I love them all! If you’d like to schedule a meet and greet, I’d be happy to set one up! It’s a wonderful way for you to see the space and meet my fur babies, and I can ask you all there is to know about your pup. I’ll want to know routines, diet, allergies, medications, triggers, etc. I offer individualized service for each individual dog, even if there are several under my care. I can be reached day or night and will be very prompt in my response. If you’d like daily updates, please let me know how many times and how you’d like me to contact you. My ultimate goal is to offer you total peace of mind while you’re away and that your pup won’t even know you’re gone!

When Dawn watches your pet

I have a large home with plenty of space for indoor fun if the weather is not so great. But when the sun is out, there is a large fenced-in yard. We live in Round Lake Heights and there are forest preserves and trails nearby. We’ll go on several hikes as well as play games in the backyard. I’ll also do some dog training reinforcement since it’s like second nature to me. There will be so much fun to be had, your pup will sleep well each night.
