Shay was great! She took amazing care of Koda, and I think he actually warmed up to her the fastest he ever has! He was sharing the couch and begging for food after only a day or two.

She also took great care of my apartment and left it as it was when she came. :)

Shay did a wonderful job with my 8yo wheaten terrier! It was very easy to schedule a meet/greet with her and she was always very responsive to my check-ins while I was away. When I returned home my place was clean and- more importantly- my dog was happy and relaxed. I'd definitely book Shay again and would recommend her highly!

Love Them Like My Own

I grew up in a house full of pets. My parents taught me the basics of proper pet care. Since then, I've had the opportunity to care for a number of pets in a variety of environments. I had experience with administering medications to pets. I am a student and recent transplant to Chicago. Currently, I live in Gold Coast/Old Town area and am enjoying getting to know the city. I will tailor physical activities ...
