Kelly was wonderful! Soni loved her stay! She was so comfortable that she kept going back on the couch when we went to pick her up. She was walking very slowly out the door. She really didn't want to leave! Kelly took her on lots of walks to pretty locations. She updated throughout the stay! Definitely recommend her and will use her again!!

Zia LOVED Kelly!! I wasn't even sure if she would want to come home! :) Kelly and Zia went on walks, had snuggle time, and had lots and lots of play time! I know that my pup was well cared for!!

Let me be your best friend's friend

I have had dogs and cats for most of my life, and I enjoy sharing it with them. I have worked for a couple of vets and pet stores. I have had a cpr license for 6 years now.
I love walking and I live near the fox river and many forest preserves. It would be great to share these places with your dog.
I have a good sized home with a full basement and ...

What Kelly would like to know about your dog

Since I work part time Mon-Fri and do not always leave for work at the same time, I like to know their potty schedule and how long they can go between breaks. Sometimes I only work 5 hours, but sometimes with traffic, errands, etc I can be gone 8.
I also like to know their general routine: where do they sleep, are they used to a crate, do they need help to potty, can they potty on leash, when and how often do they eat and potty so I know if my schedule is a good match or if there is something I can change to make it as similar as what they are used to. I do not have a fully fenced in backyard so being able to potty on leash is important.
Occasionally, there are other dogs on the path I walk, and it is nice to know whether or not your dog is aggressive toward other animals or not, if I need to be on the other side of the street,etc.
Most importantly, if there are any medical concerns that need to be treated or observed, I like to know that first thing.
There is road noise at my house so sometimes that can be something more nervous dogs are not able to get used to.
