Working with Samantha has been a great experience, as a first time Rover user I am so impressed with the quality of care and attention to detail. Samantha was patient with us as Rover newbies, very responsive, and most importantly she took VERY good care of our puppy while we were away. I knew that taking care of a 5 month old puppy might present a bit of a challenge, but Samantha is dog whisperer ...

Alfred is so happy when he realizes he is approaching Samantha's home for a stay. He clearly has so much fun and is treated like family. We are so glad we found Samantha to look after our pup when we have to leave town. She is great with keeping in communication and she sets us at ease to not be worrying about our pup all the time.

Your dogs STAYcation spot!

UPDATED INFO: My partner Jonathan and I recently moved into a garden unit apartment in McKinley Park neighborhood (2 blocks from the park entrance). We both work full time and have my (soon to be mother in law) do our midday walks and majority of the time pick up to care for them while we are at work. Larger yard photos are of our previous apartment (where my soon to be mother in law still ...

When Samantha watches your pet

We know how hard it is to ensure fun play space and dog friendly areas on the near south side of town so we enjoy exploring different areas of Chicago to ensure our pup gets proper exercise. Aside from exploring Chicago, McKinley Park has great walking a running space for your dog to get his steps in. If your dog loves belly rubs and lots of love and attention then he/she will enjoy their time here! We understand how important it is for that piece of mind while you are away so frequent check-ins are encouraged!

My apartment building is family owned & there is always someone home/in the building to check in on the pups.
