Dorothy is one of my favorite sitters for my pup Toby. I have used her closer to 10 times now. She is not only one of the nicest people you will ever meet, she gives my pup so much love and attention. She is super flexible and is extremely accommodating picking up and dropping off my big pup. She sends tons of videos and picture updates as well as detailed notes of anything else I ...

Dorothy was super caring and attentive with my dogs. She sent me pictures and videos of them throughout the day and took them on several walks. They came home happy and tuckered out, which was what I hope for. Highly recommend!

Dog Mom Extraordinaire

Hello! I'm Dorothy. I am an actor and musical theatre performer with a flexible schedule. I have three puppers - Chloe, Charla, and Chester. They're my best friends and constant companions. All three are rescues. I've been living in Chicago as a full-time actor since September 2018; the babies and I are settling in nicely to our no-rules, renegade lifestyle. We spent the past year living in Albany Park, and are excited to explore Andersonville ...

What Dorothy would like to know about your dog

I always arrange a meet and greet before confirming a booking, so everyone can meet and we can see if it is a good fit. I don't have any breed preferences or restrictions. I just want to know the basics of your pup's personality, any quirks or triggers I should look out for, allergy or medication information, stuff like that.

When Dorothy watches your pet

We have several different walk routes throughout our neighborhood. Depending on the time of day, how many pups I'm walking at a time, the weather, etc. - we could be walking down by the Chicago River, through River and Ronan Parks, over by Horner Park. We're always on the hunt for new outdoor adventures! While inside, there are many toy, chew, and treat options to keep the puppers occupied. There is never a dull moment in our house! LOL - when there is quiet, it means everyone is napping! And a tired pup is a happy pup!
