We cannot say enough good things about Gracie’s stay with Mellisa’s family. Gracie was recovering from a medical emergency when we left her and Mellissa was so great about the extra care Gracie needed. She sent lots of pictures and we knew that she was being showered with love.

Charlotte had a great time with Melissa and family. Melissa was great about sending updates and to as accommodating to our schedule. She also confidently handled a last minute ear infection and left us feeling that our pup was in good hands. We will book again!

Loving Family, 24/7 Care, Backyard!

Thanks for checking out our profile! My husband and I live on the north side of Chicago with our kids and would love to watch your dog while you're out of town! We both grew up with dogs --he grew up with basset hounds and I grew up with a Golden Retriever.

We live in a single family home with a large fenced in backyard for your dog to play in! Your dog will get ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

We love to know their schedules, what they do at home, what's their day like because we want to make our visiting dogs as comfortable as possible! We don't have a breed preference, we just care that the dogs are great with kids! We love all sizes and breeds of dogs, each one is special.

When Melissa watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We take walks around our neighborhood. When it's nice out, we like to go to our many great parks such as Warren Park or Indian Boundaries or even Loyola Park on a nice day!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Anywhere they usually do! We love our dog guests to get the same treatment at home so if they sleep with you, great! If they like to sleep on one of our couches, not a problem! Lots of our guests bring their dogs bed if they have one to really feel at home.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Dogs have 24/7 supervision at our house! We spend all day with the pups and love to take long walks, late night cuddles watching movies and loads of playtime! Your dog has our full attention day and night!
