Hello, I'm Jill!

I am a pet sitter for all kinds of family pets in my home; or I will even come to yours, if you prefer. I am local to NW Indiana, near the Hebron, Crown Point, and Valparaiso areas.

I am very trustworthy, responsible, honest, and most of all, I love all pets!

    I found Jill through my grandson . He mentioned that he had a neighbor that did dog sitting . I met with her and found her to be very much a dog lover . My 2 Chihuahuas were nervous on their first visit but took to her almost immediately . She has kept them for us several times when we are away for long weekends . Our 'boys' now become very excited when they see their sleeping crate being prepared because they now where they are going . Jill is the only sitter we've taken them to and they run to the car in anticipation . I have complete confidence in her and would and have recommended her to others . I would be more inclined to change my travel plans than to leave them somewhere other than with Jill . Our 'boy' are part of our family and she treats them as such . I can't think of anything that would've improved the experiences we've had with Jill and she leaves nothing to be desired in the care of her charges .

    Jill is so great with our beagle. She's very patient with him even though some young beagles can be very trying. We feel so safe about leaving him with her and don't feel guilty any more about having to leave him for a day or two. Really great service!

    This is definitely the best pet sitting we have ever found! Jill is wonderful with our dog, Happy, and we felt very comfortable with leaving our dog with her. Jill loves dogs, and it really shows. I highly recommend Jill to all my friends.

    Jill, offers a great service, our dog Snickers felt right at home. Jill really loves aniamals as if they were her own. Snickers even got a going away picture and gift. I recomend her, and will be asking her to watch Snickers in the future. Barb Bizik

    Jill is a WONDERFUL sitter for your pet/pets! We knew that our dog would be in good hands the moment we met her! She kept in touch with us while we were on vacation, which made us feel better. And Jill treats your pet like her own. Not like a kennel where your beloved pet will live in a crate the whole time. Do not hesitate to utilize Jill's pet sitting services!

    We have a small dog and a cat that Jill frequently takes care of in our home; while we are away. The pets love seeing her, and we feel great leaving them in her care and knowing that she is trustworthy, and keeps an eye on our home as well! We would recommend A Pet Pal Gal to anyone needing pet care!

    I thought you were a very responsible sitter when you watched our dog. She seemed very happy and content at your home.

    Over the summer we left our yorkie, Barkley, will Jill for a week while we were out of town on vacation. I could not have been more pleased with her! She was MORE than accomodating to our little guy, who has a problem with separation anxiety. It was so nice to be able to enjoy our vacation knowing that our little guy was with a wonderful person and not locked in a kennel for a week. We will definitely be calling Jill again!!
