I took my dog there and another dog came that likes to play around. I’m sue he was in heaven because he loves to play with other dogs. I will use Kristin H again.

Friendly and communicative host. Clyde was well taken care of. It was great to get pictures of him with the other dogs. Kristen was accommodating with Clyde's prescription dog food and medicine.

AdventureDog Boarding

Going out of town? Your dog will love our friendly Evanston home located near Lake Michigan beaches and forest preserves. We provide weekly adventures such as trips to the dog beach and pooch park, walks in the neighborhood, playtime in our fenced in backyard, and lots of love and attention.

Why I love dog sitting
I have had dogs in my family since I was born. I grew up in rural areas in the Midwest ...

What Kristin would like to know about your dog

We need to know if our potential clients have good manners inside the house and out. Housebroken is a must; we also have to turn down clients who are destructive to property in the house, as we also have to live here. We want to know that our clients are trustworthy around children (we have a 10 year old and a teenager who both love dogs) and if they would enjoy being around other dogs, as we can have up to 4 dogs in the house at a time. A dog who loves to play outside, go for walks and adventures, and to play with other dogs will have a great stay! We have a survey about temperament that we give our clients. We also ask questions about eating and elimination habits and the kinds of activities the dog enjoys.

When Kristin watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
There is a park directly across the street from our house; dogs will be walked in addition to yard playtime. At least once during your pup's week long stay, we will take a field trip to the beach, a forest preserve, or our Libertyville horse farm.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Where is your dog used to sleeping? Our dog sleeps in the floor in our room or occasionally on the couch in the living room. She also has a dog bed she naps on frequently. And if your dog is used to sleeping in bed with you, she is welcome to jump onto our queen sized bed and snuggle the night through.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Rover used to be my full time job; now it's a family business. I teach 5th grade in Niles, IL during the week, but I have a 19 year old and son who is home taking classes at community college. He has a flexible schedule and is able to do walks during the day. My roommate, Ellen and her therapy dog, Henry, also walk our pups during the day in between visits to schools. On temperate weekends, I ride horses at a farm in Libertyville. The dogs are free to accompany me to the farm when I go (they stay in the barn during the ride for safety reasons). There is a pond and acres of pasture to run in before and after the ride. They always arrive home exhausted!
