James is AWESOME. Our dog was less than perfect guest and he was kind and patient and understanding. He’s a pleasure to meet and to work with. If he’ll accept our pooch in his home again I’d gladly trust him with our big guy.

Thank you James!!

James took great care of our dog, Angus! He sent pics and updates every day - he’s a good communicator. Our dog was happy and healthy when he returned. Highly recommended!

James took good care of our two Shih Tzus. He was very responsible, he kept us updated daily, he even offered to pick them up at our home. Also, he was very reasonable with his holiday's rates.

Exploring Chicago one pup at a time

Dog lover and owner my entire life. Currently I am a soccer coach on the weekends and have been devoting my week to providing a active and comfortable life for my big goof ball of a dog. I grew up with a sheep dog, a beagle black lab mix, and have been with my best buddy Stan since I rescued him from a shelter in Kentucky. Stanley and I would love to welcome your own ...

What James would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preference and neither does my buddy Stanley. His best friend is a 5.5lb Terrier mix and he himself is roughly 100lbs! The biggest teddy bear (and perhaps the neediest) that you could ever lay eyes on! What I would like to know about your dog is their likes and dislikes, what their normal schedule is like so I can accommodate your pup to make their stay as comfortable as possible! Of course I would love to know if they enjoy the dog park/beach, and what their favorite things to do are! That ranging from lounging on the couch to going on a jog! I would love to do a meet and greet before hand however, Stanley has never met a dog he doesn't like but its better safe than sorry!
