Once again, a wonderful stay at Dina’s! She went above and beyond in caring for Lexi for 10 days while Lexi was having increasing mobility issues.

Can’t say enough how great Dina is with my Lexi and the other dogs I’ve seen in her care. I have complete piece of mind when I leave Lexi at her house!

We'll treat your pup like family!

We began dog sitting for Rover because we desperately missed having a dog around the house after the loss of our 15 y/o labrador, but we (ok, I) weren't emotionally ready for our own again just yet. We also foster through Midwest Animal Rescue and have since become foster failures and adopted the second dog we fostered. Professional dog sitting helps us earn a little extra doing something we love, and I really like ...

What Dina would like to know about your dog

I like to know dogs' idiosyncrasies, what foods they can and can't have, their regular schedules and activities, restrictions you have for your dog so I can uphold them, and other ways I can ease their adjustment. I love all dogs but have a special place in my heart for senior canines.

When Dina watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live steps from the Luce Line trail, and a few blocks away from the General Mills nature preserve. This is usually where we go on walks, but also can take your dog to a dog park on non-work days and spring/summer evenings when it stays light a little longer!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog can sleep wherever he/she is comfortable, as long as he/she minds his/her manners! If your dog is more comfortable in a crate, I will keep it in my bedroom at night unless otherwise instructed.

Time I'll spend with your dog
When I have boarders, I am home weekends. Rest assured that your dog will be getting the majority of our attention during that time. I do work full days on weekdays and will be gone at least 9 hours Mondays - Thursdays, but my father lives with me and will be home for company.
