Hi, I’m Lisette! I live in Chicago.Uptown, Chicago, IL

My whole life I have grown up with multiple dogs and other pets. I now have two dogs of my own, a Cockapoo (Bella) and a Bernese Mountain Dog/Golden Retriever mix (Oreo). I’ve always been obsessed with dogs and have volunteered at Paws and Oak Park Animal Care League socializing where I was responsible for socializing, waking, and general care of the dogs there. I have also been walking dogs on the side for several months now and have learned how to encourage stubborn dogs to go on their walks and how to handle young puppies. This has provided me with the experience of caring for dogs of all sizes and personalities. I know every dog is unique and has its own quirks, which is what makes being around dogs so much fun!

Your dog will love it here!West Ridge, Chicago, IL

++ Our calendar reflects our dog stay availability and does not reflect our cat stays or dog walking availability--if this is your need, please inquire even if it is stated we are unavailable ++

We know how stressful it is to find a reliable, respectful, and responsive pet sitter for your fur kid(s) -- we also know how stressful it is to "lend" your home to a pet sitter. As a result, we firmly believe in communication, respect, and meeting the needs of your fur kid(s), you, and your home. We are committed to being the best pet sitting experience you have had and our meet n' greets are free of charge!

My boyfriend and I have a combined 15+ years caring for pets, and are ready to lessen your worry while you are away. We promise to spoil, pamper, pet, walk, and love your fur family as if they were our own with twice the care, twice the availability, and twice the attention to detail!

Krista is the primary sitter and Francisco helps fill in when available, mostly on weekends. We are dedicated duo, responsible, have a strong work ethic, and are committed to providing the best customer experience for your fur family and yourself.

Please message us if you have any questions about our rates or policies!

FAQ / Policys:

-- Overnight care includes up to 3 walks, each additional walk is $5/each

-- Cats are $5 per night, if included with a dog

-- Dog walking is $15/walk, please ask about rate for more than one dog

-- Cat care is $15/visit

-- Holiday rate is + $10 to whatever rate applies -- Holidays include Thanksgiving through New Years Eve , Memorial Day weekend, Labor Day, 4th of July holiday, and Valentines day. While holidays seem plentiful, when we are with your fur family, we are away from our family. Having a higher rate during our peak seasons lets us order in and enjoy the holidays closer to your fur family.

-- Please message us if you are concerned about the total cost of your stay... we strive to be accommodating and understanding

Ever since we were young children, we have both had pets. From small cats to the largest of dogs we love all animals. Krista grew up in a household that always had multiple dogs; in fact her parents were respectable breeders of Alaskan Malamutes. Francisco also had dogs growing up and has been helping Krista watch dogs for the last few years.

Why I love dog sitting

We have been a dog lovers for as long as we can remember! Dogs and cats have always been a part of our lives and truly bring us joy.

Meet my pets

No pets of our own (yet ;))

My experience administering medication

We are okay with most medications but please discuss with us ahead of time so there are no surprises. Thank you!

Please no pickups or drop offs between 9 pm and 6 am. If an emergency arises we can work with you on making sure your pup gets home or stays here until you can make it to get them.

They're not pets, they're family!Wheeling, IL

For most of us, we consider dogs a part of the family, and I'm particularly partial to our SENIOR family members. When we have to travel without them, there's nothing worse than worrying about how they're doing and if they're comfortable. Let your dog stay with me and he or she can take advantage of

• a large fenced-in yard with doggie-door access

• a dog-friendly, single level, quiet home

• delicious homemade dog treats

• and, of course, lots of cuddles and kisses

I'm now retired, so I can be home 24/7 with your dog to make sure he's comfortable and feels loved. Families with more than one dog are welcome. I live alone in a quiet neighborhood, with my newest adoption, 13-year-old Tobey. A sweet miniature poodle who is still settling in. (Brewster, who is in my profile pic, crossed over the rainbow bridge. He is dearly missed!) My sister and Coco (8-year old Chihuahua) are staying with me for awhile.

My overnight boarding rate covers 24 hours, but there is some leeway there... e.g., drop off at 10 am and pickup at 2 pm is fine. However, when the time discrepancy is too long -- e.g., drop off at 10 am and pick up at 8 pm -- there will be a daycare charge of $20 for the extra day.

About My Experience and Love of Dogs:

I've had dogs for the past 30 years. I volunteered some years ago at Save-a-Pet. It's where I first saw the extra need for seniors to find a home, too. For the past 13 years I've dedicated myself to adopting older, hard to place dogs that need a loving home. As a result, I've had years of dealing with seniors, who often come to me with pre-existing medical issues. With seniors, you're adopting automatic heartbreak. I do, however, love trying to make their last years good ones, which they so deserve!

About My Yard:

As mentioned earlier, I have a doggie-door that leads to a securely fenced-in yard, so they can come and go as they please. The yard is approximately 100' x 60' and totally secure. I have a 6' privacy fence on 3 sides, and a 4' chainlink on the 4th side (hidden by 5-6 ft. bushes). The gate has a latch and two separate locks, so no chance of an accidental meeting with a meter reader or other uninvited guest getting in.

My Experience Administering Medication:

Living with senior dogs, giving oral meds, eye drops, ear salves, etc. are almost second nature now.

Dogs Galore!!Logan Square, Chicago, IL

I have been taking care of dogs for over 6 years, I'm a stayed home mom and I love what I do. Your baby will be supervised most of the time, we do at least 4-5 potty breaks a day and we spend a minimum of 2-3 hours in the yard playing and running around, my yard is very big with plenty of room for the four legged kids to run and play around! When they are outside I'm outside I do not like to leave them outside by themselves, the yard is completely enclosed and no way to get out , I feed them separately and one at a time! When your baby goes home he or she will be happy and exhausted! A happy dog is a tired dog! I live with my husband and my two daughters 18 years and 14 years , they also love animals and help me with them on the weekends but I'm the main care provider. I do administer medications if require. Again I love what I do and I will take great care of your baby while you're away!:)

2 Adults, home full timeSkokie, IL

2 grown ups, home full time we have 2 dogs of our own, although I’m not really sure you can count Trixie-she’s only 4 lbs., so a bit more like a Guinean pig than a dog.

We lost our very senior dogs a few years ago, so we decided to do dog sitting to fill the void. park.p. And then I fell madly in love with a canine guest, a Havanese.. We can brought one home in a matter of weeks. His name is Puck, and he's a very friendly little guy who loves to play with other dogs.

We have a 1500sq ft. Ranch house (3 steps up) in a quiet neighborhood, with a smallish yard, and a great patio for doggie sunbaths.. we have been dog sitting for 6 years now. We can administer meds, oral and injected. We walk them regularly There are squirrels and rabbits to chase (and maybe catch), and lots of time for ear scratches and belly rubs. It’s a comfortable, relaxed environment with a regular routine.

About this sitter:

Hi, I am a retired stay at home mom who is now using her nurturing ability to care for other people's dogs in my home.

Why I love dog sitting

I have loved dogs all my life. When my husband and I bought our first house, the first thing we got was a dog, a Cairn Terrier, named Chelsea. After she passed we welcomed home Zelda, a terrier mix, and Nala, a lab-malamute mix. They lived til they were 17 and 15, respectively. Now we have a Havanese, and a Chorkie, who only weighs 4 lbs

Dog Mom ExtraordinaireUptown, Chicago, IL

Hello! I'm Dorothy. I am an actor and musical theatre performer with a flexible schedule. I have three puppers - Chloe, Charla, and Chester. They're my best friends and constant companions. All three are rescues. I've been living in Chicago as a full-time actor since September 2018; the babies and I are settling in nicely to our no-rules, renegade lifestyle. We spent the past year living in Albany Park, and are excited to explore Andersonville and make new neighborhood friends!

Ours is a high-energy household. We love to take walks and play and run and nap and walk some more and have treats and then maybe nap again but definitely more play and treats later. Work hard, play hard, crash hard. We love having guest pups over to share in the pup-ventures. Guest pups can make themselves comfortable wherever they like - there are many dog beds and couches and blankets and pillows upon which guest puppers can lounge and naps and play. There is a whole pupper area in the kitchen equipped with plenty of fresh water and a variety of treats, suitable for all sensitivities/preferences! I have a dog mobile, so pick ups and drop offs are not a problem at all. And trips to the puppy parks are super easy, too.

Since my huskies have been training me for a while, I am an expert pup walker. If you need someone to wear your pup out on a hefty walk, I'm your gal! Sometimes, if everyone is okay with it (humans and canines alike), one or more of my puppers will accompany me when I set off on my rounds of afternoon walks, and it turns into a pack walk! Chloe especially likes being my co-pilot on walks. It is always fun to see how quickly and easily all the pups fall right into a pack rhythm - I love being a part of that!

I am very comfortable handling dogs with separation anxiety, high energy, or any sort of issue that stems from rescue situations. I have worked with multiple trainers, and have experienced various approaches to behavior correction. I love sharing my stories and what I have learned with my human clients, to help them develop their own way of working with their pups - to take the work they've already done and transfer it to new and exciting situations! I send tons of picture and video updates, and am always right by my phone, so you'll always know what's going on. And I'll always communicate open and honestly, hoping everyone will do the same.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my profile! I look forward to meeting you and your pup(s)!
