Rutger is wonderful with my pups! He has dogsat for me several times and always takes excellent care of them. He’s responsible, caring, and conscientious. Rutger also sends lots of updates and makes me feel very comfortable while I’m away. I trust him 100% and the dogs always enjoy their time so much they don’t want to come home!

Rutger was great - very flexible and responsive. Major took to him very well and came back super happy.

Had a great time with Major! He was a good boy!!

Rutger was great with our pup. It was our first time leaving her after adopting. Rutger made us and Butters feel comfortable. We will absolutely use Rutger again!

Butters was so much fun and we bonded over tug of war! She's welcome back anytime!

Orthodontist and Animal Lover!

I live in a large one bedroom loft at the heart of the south loop neighborhood in a dog-friendly building.

When Rutger watches your pet

I am just a short 10 min walk away from Grant Park, museum campus, and the lakefront trail.

I am very active and an avid runner so if you’d like I am happy to take your dog on a run with me!

There is no shortage of places to go and an abundance of nearby pet-friendly areas.
