I unequivocally recommend Heather. She's HIGHLY responsible, communicative, attentive and adaptable.

Thank you Heather and Lucy for going above and beyond to watch Boots.

Boots looks forward to future visits!

Heather communicates daily while we are out of town and includes pictures of our dog. She has kept Piper twice and we could not be more pleased.

Heather was super on top of it and flexible when the parking around my building was a hassle. My dog was happy and relaxed after.

Work from home - Dog Park in back!

Hello! I'm Heather, an artist living in the South Loop. I work from home every day, so I am always around to care for your pup during its stay as my schedule is quite flexible. I take daily walks, trips to the dog park, and love to spend as much time as I can exploring outdoors, despite living in the city! I live in a quiet and comfortable condo, so you can relax knowing your ...

What Heather would like to know about your dog

I have a dog myself, and she's a total sweetheart, so aggressive, bullying dogs aren't going to be a good fit here. I'd like to know a dogs temperament and how they do with other dogs. What are some of your pups favorite things to do, ways to play, and what makes them feel the most comforted? Also, I do sound recording work from home, so dogs who are prone to barking won't be a good match.

When Heather watches your pet

I live right next to one of the largest dog parks in the city. There are separate areas for large and small dogs. I also take frequent walks throughout the day! Plus, there's always time to play indoors as well. :)
