Excellent-Dawn was fantastic. She took care of my Mother's dog. My Mom was very concerned but instantly felt comfortable when we dropped Molly off. Highly recommended!!

Dawn was amazing! She was responsive, super kind, and my pups were definitely well cared for. Even for a short stay, I received photos and updates! Would absolutely use her again and 110% recommend to anyone seeking care for their dog!

This will be our second time using Rover. I would highly recommend it. Dawn was fantastic!!! She knows so much about dogs and has the perfect home. We felt very comfortable leaving our baby with her. She sent us daily pictures/videos of Wrigley every day. Wrigley had an opportunity to be with other dogs which we thought was great. He was exhausted when he came home. We will definitely have Dawn watch our dog again. ...

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’ve been ...

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!

About Dawn's Home

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.
