When I board my dog with Matt, I don't feel guilty about leaving her behind. He send pics every day to show me how much fun they're having. Matt takes great care of my little girl, she always has a great time staying with him. Thank you!

By far, Matt has been the best dog sitter I've had. You can tell how much he loves animals. My dogs really like him. He takes care of them like they are his own. Matt is an A+ dog sitter!

Matt did a great job boarding Seamus. During the meet and greet, Matt did his due diligence and made sure that he was prepared to take care of our dog. We were provided pictures and updates every night. When we picked Seamus up, Matt gave us an awesome gift that we have on display in our living room now. Overall, I felt comfortable leaving our best furry pal with Matt, and that's the most important ...

4 parks within walking distance!

Former doggy foster parent, hoping to earn money on Rover so I can afford a pupper of my own! Before moving to Chicago, I worked for a reputable dog walking service in Minneapolis and volunteered at the Anti-Cruelty Society. I have professional training and hands-on experience providing daytime, evening, and overnight pet care including walks, meals, water refills, medications, and lots of tummy rubs!

My personal experience includes raising a German Shephard, two Collies, and ...

What Matt would like to know about your dog

Please confirm that your dog is up-to-date with his/her shots, flea and tick control, and has been spayed or neutered. I need to know if your pooch has any medical issues or special needs, and if he/she has displayed any aggressive behavior. Please let me know if your doggo has had any trouble with excessive barking or destructive tendencies. My spacious 2 bedroom apartment is located on the 3rd floor; I'll need to know if your pup needs to be carried or has any trouble with stairs. I would like to know about your pups daily routine so I can keep the schedule he/she is used to! Your answers will help me create a fun and comfortable stay for your dog!

NOTE: I always require a Meet & Greet prior to booking, even for last minute requests!

When Matt watches your pet

Dogs who board with me can choose between 4 nearby parks, one of them is right across the street! Does your pupper like to play fetch? With your approval, there's a dog park within walking distance where your good boy/girl can play off-leash or socialize with other pups. Does your doggo enjoy music? We can hang out on the patio and I'll serenade your pooch with my ukulele.
