Stephenie and her husband took great care of our Baxter! It can take Baxter awhile to warm up to other dogs, but he ended up getting along great with Stephanie's dogs. I appreciated the picture and update she sent. We don't tend to board Baxter very often, but I'm happy to have found someone trustworthy whenever the need arises.

Stepenie did a great job with our dog Teddy. He is blind and has always been a little anxious. He seemed to fit in well after a while and was fine
when he came home. We will use her again!

Professional Pet care

We offer sitting for dogs, cats, some reptiles, and small animals.

Stephenie is a dog and cat groomer at a mobile pet groomer in Lake county. I also am a handler as a hobby and help show dogs in dog shows. My hours vary and are flexible.

John works 9-5 Monday thru Friday in Buffalo Grove and his schedule is very reliable.

We have two dogs, Nibbler and Addison, who love to play with other ...

What Stephenie would like to know about your dog

We like to know energy level and how they get along with dogs and cats. We always prefer to do a meet and greet before the stay so we can see how they do with our pets and us to make sure it's the right fit.

When Stephenie watches your pet

We do activities with the dogs depending on their personalities. We like to go for walks around the forest preserves in the area (on leash only for safety). We also have a decent sized yard to play fetch and such. We are also happy to just snuggle up on the couch all day if that's more their style.
