Big Fenced Yard- Dog Loving CoupleRockford, IL

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to read through my profile and see if it’s a good fit for you. The pups safety and well-being is our #1 priority!

I volunteered at PAWS for two years and have watched a variety of dogs from a 4lb Maltese to a 150lb Great Dane. I am used to special diets, giving oral or injection meds as my own pup takes some, and any special accommodations you might have. I send daily updates with pictures/videos. I’ve been doing Rover since March of 2017 and more so the past 3 years. I live with my boyfriend of 7 years who works but also helps a lot with the dogs and sometimes does drop offs or pick ups.

We have a big fenced yard and can play fetch, go on walks or the park down the road, or just have fun snuggling on the couch. Normally I take a walk a day and depending on the dog love to sit out in the fresh air especially when the weather is nice!

I take up to 4 dogs at a time, some could be a multi dog family, but I always make sure it’s a good fit and slow introductions. We have multiple crates for if left alone, or we can gate off the kitchen or close them in our room.

I’m very familiar with dog language and different breeds big or small. We have the house set up with different gates and areas to seperate so they aren’t left unsupervised alone, plus everyone always gets their seperate play time and quiet nap time.

We have a 16 year old Rat terrier named Lady, who normally keeps to herself and gets along with everyone and our rescue tripawd cat named Tripp also.

I promise your pet will have a fun-filled vacation with me! We want them to feel right at home. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or to set up a 15 minute meet and greet!

Drop ins- I often do drop ins at client’s houses for both dogs and cats and love it. This involves 30 minutes of one on one play time, feeding, letting out pups or bringing on a walk, sitting with them and an update/picture sent or mail if needed.

Dog Boarding and SittingLoves Park, IL

Hello! I recently moved to the Rockford area for medical school. This is a dream come true, but I unfortunately had to leave behind my pup in the care of my parents. I need your help to fill the void that it created! I've had dogs all my life--my own and fostering--and truly enjoy their company and energy. I enjoy walking dogs around my neighbor, taking them to dog parks, and snuggling. I request that your dog be crate trained so that I have peace of mind knowing they are safe when I am at class. I am also available for the occasional dog walk or stopping by for an afternoon potty break. I promise your dog(s) will be in very good hands if left in my care.

A loving experience for your petsPoplar Grove, IL

I have been a dog lover for many years. I'm new to this site, but not to caring for animals. My husband Russell & I currently have 3 fur babies, an 11-year old Siberian Husky named Sterling, a 7-year old German Shepherd/Husky mix named Hero, and a 2-year old Alaskan Husky named Luna. Needless to say, we're not afraid of big dogs & lots of fur! Our dogs are extremely friendly & get along with everyone, human or furry.

We live in a quiet neighborhood on 1.5 acres in the country (Poplar Grove, IL). Most of our yard consists of a privacy fence, so there is plenty of room for running & playing. We can accommodate any needs, be it indoor/outdoor preferences, crate-training, you name it. I have a lot of experience with puppies and training, so I can easily help in those areas if needed. If I didn't mention it here, don't be afraid to ask!

Huge backyard - come play with me!Rockford, IL

We have always had a dog in our home since we were little kids. We love dogs! I consider my husband to be the ‘dog whisperer’. We are home full-time and would provide the same love and care to your dog as we do for our dog, Thor. Thor is a very social German Shepherd who loves to play with other dogs and travel in his trailer behind a motorcycle. Also, with myself being a baker, I make ‘pupcakes’ for dogs for their birthday (which contain no sugar, not gluten free). We do not feed our dog people food so you will not need to worry about any extra food he/she might have. Treats are provided on an approval basis. We are not training professionals, but will work with your dog if needed.

A second home.Belvidere, IL

I live next to a frield where i usually take the dogs to run. I love animals of all kind! I do not have a preference, all pets are welcome. I am observant, detail oriented, organized, and reliable. I had dog training 101 during my volunteer work at my local humane society. At my time at the shelter I was able to walk many different types of dogs, feed them, play with them and give medication as needed. From that experience I have learned what a dog is feeling and can then adress the situation as needed. I also train dogs with positive reinforcement. I have also house sat for friends with dogs. I promise to care for your beloved furry friend as if he or she were my own!

Friendly & Responsible Pet LoverRockford, IL

I take the time to really get to know your dog/cat. I have a very outgoing personality which makes it much easier and I am able to form trust/bond in your pet almost immediately. I feel that my previous experience working in a shelter working with the general public and being a Animal lover/owner has helped contribute to that particular trait! I treat ANY furbaby as their one of my own!! We will play together all day (Weather permitting) in the yard mostly & go for a nice walk to see the crazy squirrels at the park! There are plenty of toys (for all the diff. size dogs) here at my house for your pooch to play with! All dogs with receive PLENTY of attention from family & will NEVER BE LEFT ALONE ? OR UNSUPERVISED. This to me is NOT a hobby, it is my PASSION. I enjoy being able to say that ALL animals WILL RECEIVE the BEST CARE while under my roof & in my care. I can work around your schedule! I DO NOT have a dog of my own, which works perfectly for people who have dogs that DON'T always get along with/ other dogs! I have had many clients w/dogs that are aggressive towards other animals and I am very skilled at handling these issues! I'd love to discuss your pets needs, their personality and continue their care while you're away!

Pet service you can trustLoves Park, IL

Years ago, when my four legged companions would have considered me a pup. I was given the task, to train and care for our newest floppy eared member. While working with my new best friend, a deep enthusiasm and excitement took root. Since then I've had experience with all sizes and many breeds. I've become certified as a trainer, gathered experience caring for sick/injured pets. Including the administration of medicine for cats and dogs.

An ongoing or set schedule would be best and most beneficial. It helps establish a bond between us and your pet. However, I understand life doesn't always work like that. So I am more than willing to do my best to accommodate, especially with notice.

We live off the river with the path less then two blocks away. A meet and greet is encouraged so our pets get to know each other. We have dogs that love to play for hours. There is always someone home that can make sure your pooch is happy and loved.
