Dog lover, runner, and a studentCarbondale, IL

I have worked at a doggy-day care and boarding facility in Knoxville. I go to college at Southern Illinois University, I can walk in between classes and after classes. My classes are spaced out, so I can drop by your house and let your animals out and walk them. I have watched small dogs, Chihuahuas to big dogs such as Great Danes. I also have experience with puppies starting at 6 weeks old. I do love dogs and have one at home, he is a Husky/ Golden retreiver mix. I can also give baths if an owner wishes for no extra charge if I am house sitting or just popping in. I am also used to cats in the house as I have 3 cats at home. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Zoologists are the best for this!Carbondale, IL

I am a zoologist and experienced animal handler. I minored in Equine Science, which is a pre-veterinary track, so I can administer a wide variety of medications and am trained in animal first aid and CPR. I personally have owned large dogs and small. I am an experienced horsewoman as well. If I can handle a 1000lbs of scared horse, your dog will be no problem. I have friendly pets of all sorts and plenty of space and even a spare bedroom for doggy guests to stay in. I have personally trained every dog I have owned and can train your dog or help you train your dog while caring for them. I also have many years of experience with pet problems and through my education in zoology I have learned hands on pet first aid in the event of a problem. One of my own dogs is a cattle dog mix and would love to go on as many walks as possible with new friends every day!

Large Fenced Yard, Loving HomeCARBONDALE, IL

I am a dog mom and love my rescue dog Nigel. We have completed three six week obedience classes and Nigel passed his Canine Good Citizen test through the AKC. I have experience using positive rewards-based training for obedience, loose-leash walking, house training, and other skills. I also use positive reinforcement with other dogs that I interact with and can help continue any training that you have worked on with your dog. I have learned a lot through studying Psychology at the doctoral level and use whatever I can with Nigel.

My husband, Nigel, and I live in a four bedroom house with a big fenced in back yard, so there is plenty of room inside and out for dogs to play. We also have a kiddie pool outside for those hotter days.

I will be happy to hear the needs your dog has and hope that I will be meet those needs during your dog's stay. I can promise your dog will play a lot with Nigel and will have time outside to run around in the back yard. If your dog likes to do anything in particular (play fetch, go for walks, go to the dog park), please let me know and we can make it happen. Also, please let me know what their favorite toys or treats are. I will provide you with updates and pictures of your dog's day while they are in my care.

A note regarding dog boarding: Pups should be picked up on the morning of pickup day. If this cannot be done it is not usually a problem but we will add an additional 'drop-in visit' for any pick ups after 11:30am and a 'doggy day-care' for any pick ups after 3pm. Feel free to contact us with questions!

Farm and play time!Carbondale, IL

I am a Zoology major at SIU and I have owned animals my entire life. I currently have a horse and a dog. One of my dogs lives with my mom since I am a full time student while the younger one, a golden retriever lives with me in Carbondale. He gets along with all dogs and is very welcoming to new dogs and helps them all to feel right at home.

Before I moved to Southern Illinois, I worked for a dog boarding center that also specialized in helping owners and dogs work out behavioral issues. I was a kennel technician and worked closely with the owner and trainer of the facility. I understand animal behavior and work to make animals feel as at home as possible when they are with me. I also have experience giving meds in all forms.

I have no roommates, so there is no issues there. If your dog enjoys long walks, then s/he can join me out at the barn on a long line where s/he can explore pastures and forestry. If your dog is more of a lounge around all day, there are plenty of places in my apartment for him or her to do that as well! I have experience with most dog breeds including but not limited to, Dalmatians, bully breeds (bull terriers, American Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire terriers) , terriers( westies, Wheaties, Norfolk terriers, Airedale’s, jack russels), poodles, sighthounds (Italian greyhound, greyhound, Saluki, whippets, , herding and working breeds (border collies, Labrador retrievers, golden retrievers, German shepherds). I am comfortable with all breeds and all types of animals! I am wonderful with timid animals and can work with them on their fears and/or help them to be more at home quickly.

Zoology Student w/Kennel ExperienceCarbondale, IL

Hello! My name is Whitley and your dogs are my priority! Since I was in pre-kindergarten I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. I started working in the kennel of an animal hospital when I was 15 and my love for animals has continued to grow ever since. My experience at the animal hospital means that I have grown up learning how to properly care for multiple animals at a time in the most professional, ethical, and safest way. I have worked with all kinds of dogs. I have fostered many types of animals throughout my life and I don't shy away from large dogs, aggressive dogs, or dogs with special needs. They are family, even if they aren't always cookie-cutter! I live in a house near campus with a fenced in backyard. I can administer medicine, I know animal first aid, and I can do basic grooming. I will treat your fur babies as family and they will love their home away from home.

I am a student and I have a part time job as well so I may be gone for a few hours at a time during the day depending on when your stay is, but I live close to school so I'm never more than a short drive away from your pets. Feel free to shoot me a message if you want to work something out!

Want to shower your pup with loveAva, IL

I miss owning my own dog and I am looking to spend time caring for dogs. Would love to go on long walks with your pups and play with them! They are more than welcome to jump on my furniture and bed (if allowed at home), I want your pup to feel just at home in my house as they do with their family. I understand high energy dogs, I owned one for about 10 years and I am more than willing to take the time to tire them out! I hope to care for your fur babies as well as I can and I am more than happy to accommodate any special needs they might have. I am happy to set up a play date to get to know you and your pups.

Of Dogs and LeashesCarbondale, IL

Growing up, I can’t ever remember a time where I wasn’t surrounded by drool-y dog kisses, small dog zoom zooms, big dog chases, games of fetch, and puppy cuddles. Dogs, cats, and any animals really (I’m not picky), have always been a fond and important aspect of my life. Not only do I enjoy caring for pets, I also want to provide a reliable way for dog owners to ensure the best care for them while they are away or otherwise occupied! Currently a cat and dog mom myself I understand the importance of peace of mind, quality, and trust when it comes to critter care. Thanks for your time and for giving me the chance to meet and greet you and your furry loved ones!
