Thanks, Arpa! Armen is great. A terrific instigator of playing with the other dogs. The epic tug-o-wars were so much ...

Very grateful for Steve, Karen, and Baz the Dog's hospitality yesterday during Agave's day of play with them. I was glad to get to know them and to see how good they are with the dogs. And Agave came home completely tuckered out and happy. It was great to see her "smiling"!

Steve H.
Thank you, Sara! Agave was a pleasure and will always be welcome in our home.

40+ yrs experience, fenced backyard

Hi. My name is Steve. Like you, I am a dog lover. I've had dogs since I was a child. Baz (a two year old that loves everybody and everything) is my dog.

I'm offering you the full array services, walking (30 minutes with just your dog or dogs), overnights in my home or yours and cat care.

My wife and I live in a very nice single family home in the Logan Square neighborhood ...

What Steve would like to know about your dog

I'm happy with all breeds. Of course, for the safety of your animal, my animals and others I would want to know behavioral issues: likes other animals, good with children, playing habits, etc. You know, common sense stuff.

When Steve watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Logan Sq. environs. All residential, quiet, plenty of trees and grassy parkways.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Wherever he/she wants to. Alone, in my room, in one of the spare rooms, or if you wish, in a crate that would would need to provide.

Time I'll spend with your dog
The majority of my day is free. Outside of run of the mill errands (groceries, gas up the van, etc.) I will be home with my dogs and yours.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Walks are 30 minutes with just your dog. Longer if you want.

House sitting at your home? I'll never leave your dog alone for more than four hours and of course I would be there all night.

Boarding at my house? Same as above. Also, if your dog loves his/her crate I'm happy to set it up at my home. Otherwise, your pooch will have the run of my house and fenced in backyard.

Extra house-sitting services
It's only common sense. Whatever tasks need to be done while you are away I will take care of. Even extra errands. I'll make sure that strangers will never know you are gone.
