Pet LoverKenosha, WI

I am currently in school part time on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 7am to 1pm. This is also the reason I cannot accommodate many dogs now till school ends December 30th, 2019.

If my calendar shows booked and you are still interested in coming then please contact me and I will do my best to accommodate the days you are looking for.

While I am gone to school I have someone here part time and there is a doggy door that allows the dogs to go in and out of the house to the yard to do their business if I am not here.

I have a large fenced in yard for your dogs to play and run. I would love the opportunity to take care of your pets while your on vacation or at work. We have plenty of love and attention to share with your pets. I can take dogs of all ages and sizes, young and old. I can administer oral medications as well as injected medications. The only items I require to come with your pets are their food and if they have a favorite bed or blanket that they like to sleep with or cuddle up with. I do not take multiple dogs at one time but usually not more then 2 unless they all know each other from a prior visit. But since one of dogs now has cataracts and has trouble seeing I am not taking the amount of dogs I used

Why I love dog sitting

I have been a dog lover and I have always had a passion for taking care of animals. I have had dogs all the while I was growing up and cant remember a time we didn't have a pet. Watching dogs in my home is a dream come true! Our home is very pet friendly and your pets are allowed any where in the home and including on the furniture.

We love them like our own!Grayslake, IL

We have had the joy and privilege of being Rover hosts for over seven years now. It has been a delight to love on so many wonderful furries and meet so many incredible people! We also just adopted our own fur-boy, who LOVES to host furry friends.

My family would enjoy nothing more than to love on your pup(s) while you are away. We are extreme dog lovers and have enjoyed being the "cool Aunt and Uncle" to many of our friend's furry family members' as they have entrusted their pups with us while they have gone on vacation, served on missions trips, experienced moving transitions, etc. The photos shown in our profile are of the many times our extended furry family members have stayed with us, as well as many of our pawesome Rover clients. Your doggie(s) will receive lots of love and attention with as many kisses and snuggles as they will tolerate. We love taking your pup for a walk through our dog-friendly neighborhood or through one of the many Forest Preserves we have in our area. We LOVE to play! Fetch, keep-away, tug-o-war, hide and seek you name it! Your pup will have free roam of the furniture at her home away from home, as well as free roam of our fenced in back yard. For as long or short as we have your pup(s) they are a part of our family.

Here are a few important requirements to vacationing at the Palace:

*we ask that your furry be social toward other furries - no history of past aggression.

*we ask that your furry be comfortable around kids.

*we ask that your furry be neutered/spayed (unless under one years old).

*we ask that your furry be up-to-date on vaccinations/shots.

*we ask that your furry have their flea/tick preventive applied before their vacay.

Meet and Greets are recommended and enjoyed. We currently schedule them on Mondays anytime, Tues., and Sunday evenings after 4:00.

Looking forward to meeting you and spoiling your furry!

Where your pup is just like family!Highland Park, IL

Your pup will love staying with us and our two teenage kids. (Update: Last March, we lost our Sadie to cancer, but we just got a new puppy. Josie is a golden retriever and a wonderful addition to our home!) Walking in our quiet neighborhood, romping in the fenced and wooded backyard, and watching the world through our wall of windows are highlights of what we can offer.

Marty and I spend lots of time outdoors for both work and fun, and have cared for our own or others' dogs for over 20 years. There are lots of exciting places to explore nearby including Lake Michigan and the Ft. Sheridan Forest Preserve. Our small, cabin-like house is easily managed by dogs both young and old.

We usually accept only one dog at a time, but will make exceptions if there's limited overlap especially if you're a repeat guest. Please feel free to message me if you see that we are booked.

We look forward to meeting great dogs and their people. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns or to schedule a Meet-n-Greet. Thanks for considering us and have a great day.

The Mutt House- pickup/dropoff avaiMundelein, IL

In home DOG SITTING with PICKUP AND DROP OFF available for your convenience!!!!

We are celebrating our SIX YEAR anniversary here at The Mutt House. Thank you to all of the wonderful owners and pups for making it an amazing experience! .... Please read on........

The Mutt House is the perfect vacation destination for the (ALREADY) WELL-SOCIALIZED dog while you are enjoying your vacation with peace of mind..

( See note on which breeds I can not accept)..

( Please include PICTURE OF YOUR PUP with request)

——————————

Your dog will enjoy a safe, large fenced in yard and plenty of room to roam around our smoke-free house. They are also welcome to lounge on the couch or wherever they are comfortable. The home environment is so much less stressful for your dog than a kennel (cheaper too!). We also take lot of potty breaks and enjoy the outdoors when weather allows. I will send daily pictures and updates directly to your phone, so that you will have peace of mind while away!

All you really need to bring is your pups food....If your dog is crated, I have all sizes of extras -so no need to lug yours here. I have extra bowls as well.

A few other things to note:

1) I do generally have multiple dogs here from different families. I average about 4-6 plus my 2, especially during the busy season/holidays (spring break, Thanksgiving, Christmas), so it is important that your dog adjusts easily and is already well socialized.

2) For families with multiple dogs, the rate is $42/night for the first dog, $35 for each additional dog.

3)***Please no late drop offs. It takes a while for the dogs to adjust to each other and most settle down for the night by 8:00...so ideally before 5pm is appreciated...We can discuss at our meet and greet.

4) If you live within 10 miles of Mundelein, I am happy to pick up and drop off your dog for you. ($12 fee each way.)

5) *****NOTE ON DOG BREEDS....No Huskies , no PITBULLS OR PIT MIXES, guarding dogs or dogs with anxiety issues or past aggression issues . No extremely high energy dogs.

I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you for your consideration.

Why I love dog sitting

I have had dogs my whole life and can't imagine NOT having at least one (so now I have 2!)... If I could live on a farm and have 10-20 dogs I would. Boarding dogs in my home allows me to be around all breeds and sizes, which I love. The more the merrier!

About my yard

Spacious fenced-in yard (see pictures). The fence is tall and is routinely examined for safety.

My experience administering medication

I am able to administer oral medications.

Will walk, run, or board your pet!Deerfield, IL

We have cared for our own dogs for 25+ years. Currently, we have one very friendly dog, Thunder, whom we adopted from a local shelter. Nikki and I would love to open our home to other dogs or visit your home to help you with all your pet care needs. We believe having two of us working together allows greater flexibility to care for your dog.

We also have two children that love dogs and will definitely provide plenty of play time with your pet if you board with us. Additionally, we just installed a new 6' fence (pictures coming soon) so we have a sizeable fenced-in backyard for your pet. Deerfield is a very dog-friendly community and we walk or run your dog in any weather!

Nikki and I both have experience with small to large dog breeds as well as senior animals. Also, we are willing to clean up your yard for an additional fee, if desired.

We both live and work in Deerfield, IL, and are very flexible with local travel to your location.

Home all Day/Night! Insured by PCI.Lake Forest, IL

Fellow dog lovers - East Lake Forest; Large Fenced yard; Dog Ramps for the elderly; Medications administered; Extended or frequent stays welcome! Small socialized "other dog friendly" dogs without separation anxiety only are welcome! Visitors must have up to date vaccinations and be neutered/spayed. Dogs under two years old incur different rates if accepted.

I love my campers and strive to make their visit a happy, content and enjoyable experience.

My home has a large fenced in back yard ideal for your dog/s to play or relax. Multiple pups from the same family are welcome. This is a safe and non stressful environment. Medications including injectables can be administered.

(Overnight rates are based on a 24 hour stay.. If a visitor's stay is extended over the 24 hour "overnight" time period daycare charges will apply or are pro-rated.) Visitors with medical issues that require intensive supervision and/or require medications will incur rates to be discussed with their "doggy parents". My home is handicapped dog friendly with an outdoor ramp also! Unfortunately I am not able to board dogs with SEVERE separation anxiety or who are "vocal/excessively barky". I look forward to hearing from you!

About this sitter:

I have experience with many breeds and love companion dogs, etc. . As a retired master's level clinical school social worker I am home during the day/night day to provide for individual needs and personalities. Most dogs sleep in my room to be close by! I have a large fenced in back yard with two separate areas, and a home layout perfect for sight supervision. Elderly and small sized dogs are welcome as are multiple family dogs. I have experience with the delivery of oral, vision and injectable medications. If your dog is "other dog friendly" I can't wait to have them visit! Meet and greets are very important and " doggy beds" book quickly! Love to hear from you!.

Why I love dog sitting

I have loved dogs since I was a child. I grew up with breeds including St. Bernard's, collies, spaniels, hounds and curs as we lived in the country! I have owned many breeds including a Maltese (19 years) and a Dachshund, (16 years). Kindness, positive reinforcement and attention to their needs are a priority! My campers are an important part of my life as I so enjoy waking up to wagging tails and nurturing their different personalities.

Meet my pets

None at this time.

About my yard

It is a large secure locked fenced in backyard with a 6 ft. high fence and grass. My patio and porch lead into the backyard. A stair ramp for elderly dogs helps those with ACL or arthritis...

My experience administering medication

As I have owned elderly dogs in the past medications are easily administered in pill or liquid form. Injections can also be administered. Medications are provided on schedule! I set three different alarms.

Every visitor can pick out their own sleeping spot on a comfy bed, often in my bedroom. Owners are requested to be sure their dogs are currently on heart worm and flea/tick medications and should bring their vet records with vaccinations for the file. EXTENDED STAYS ARE WELCOME!
