Laika is a mischievous dog: quite a handful! She loves Mike and seems to behave better for him than for me. :) What a relief to have such a courteous, professional, loving guy to walk Laika. Thanks, Mike!

Mike took great care of the boys. He was always responsive to questions and gave us great updates throughout the trip.

It was so helpful to my traveling family to be able to leave our gal with Mike for a few hours, so that we could have a private tour of Churchill Downs. They were fast with communication, and sent a few cute pics. We appreciate them allowing an early drop off!

Furry Families in Chicago

Hi, we're Mike & Tim - a duo looking to help care for your furry family! Also pictured is our dog & mascot Bruno.

I've loved dogs all my life. I've owned and cared for them since I was a child, and couldn't imagine life without them. My husband Mike has also worked in various dog rescue missions in Boston and Louisville. Mike additionally works full time as a ...

What Tim would like to know about your dog

We have no breed preferences, though we do require the pets be flea-free and up to date on all shots.

We do ask a few questions (typically at the meet and greet when we're getting to know you and your furry family). Some of these questions include (some apply only to house sitting):

~Barking triggers
~Eating habits (Special food, number of times per day, etc.)
~Sleeping arrangements (bed/crate/couch/floor/etc.)
~Leash and walk behavior
~How your dog behaves around other dogs

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise
Injected Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience

When Tim watches your pet

We typically walk dogs around our (or your) neighborhood. Unless your furry family has a specific spot, we'll take him/her on a walk around the lake. If your dog has social anxiety around other dogs we'll be sure to take the utmost care in making sure they have a lot of space and privacy.
