Helene stayed with my kitty for 8 days while we were out of town. She did all the small tasks I asked of her around the house; and more importantly, she was wonderful with my cat. He likes lots of attention and she gave it to him. When I came home, I found a happy, well cared for cat. I have already booked Helene for two more lengthy cat sits and would definitely recommend her. She really takes her job seriously and she loves animals.
Andrew has been great this week with my dog. My only negative is, when communicating with them, I was told it was a husband/wife team but wife/son team came to my house and it's the son who is walking my dog...which is fine because Indy likes Andrew. I just felt a bit mislead. However, after the initial meeting I felt comfortable having Andrew come into my house and walk my dog. I plan to try them out for the overnight option as well at some point. Thank you to the McClelland family for the peace of mind!!
Wow! After pretty extensive searching for a professional and trustworthy pet sitter for my new cat, I chose to hire Lainey after reading all of her wonderful reviews. She is so friendly and I felt comfortable giving the keys to my apartment to her after meeting her just once. Since I've been on vacation I've received pictures of my cat every day which definitely eases my anxiety about how she's doing while I'm away. She texts me every day to tell me she's been to visit my kitty, so I know she's being taken care of. She did ask as well if I'd like pictures and daily updates and also asked what time I'd like her to visit while I'm gone. I love that she's considerate of different preferences that everyone might have! Overall, she has made my vacation so much less stressful and I'm so glad I found her. She's definitely going to be my go-to in the future for any of my pet sitting needs!
Susan has been cat sitting for us for over ten years and we have only positive things to say. First, she did cat sitting for one cat and now for our three. She always asks how they are doing along with detailed questions so she knows what is going on with them, their food and medicine issues, etc. She is easy to work with, 100% reliable, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and experienced. She has a very calm demeanor which our cats respond well to and she spends the time to play with them and give them attention while we are gone so that they are happy and in good spirits when we come home.
Jackie took care of our dog, cat, and rabbit when we were out of town. She was very professional during our first meeting and left a report of how the pet sitting went. We look forward to using Muttsley's again.
I cannot say enough positive things about Shauna and Furry Hooligans. She is incredibly thorough and thoughtful in her service and genuinely cares about my fur babies. I have an elderly dog with severe arthritis. Shauna comes every day while I am at work to walk him. It's difficult for him to move and she is very caring and patient with him. Recently, I was called out of town and Shauna pet sat for my animals (my dog and cat). She was very caring and thorough. She even sent me pictures of my animals so that I knew they were happy. What I appreciated most about Furry Hooligans is how much Shauna genuinely cares for my animals. I highly recommend her service.
Michelle groomed my 15-year-old dog, who suffered from arthritis and had bad back legs. Brownie had medium-long hair that shed like crazy and hadn't been professionally washed or brushed for years. After 90 minutes, she emerged from Michelle's van looking clean and sleek. I've recommended her service to my pet-sitting customers. It was a little pricey, but you get convenience (especially for dogs averse to car rides) and a groomer with a lot of experience and knowledge.
Lisa has been my pet sitter for over 4 years now. Loyal, trustworthy and dependable are her 3 greatest attributes and the most important part is my dogs just love her! She is just great with them! She has even rushed one of my dogs to my vet when she was at my house pet sitting. My dog cut herself on my fencing deep enough to require stitches. I highly recommend her!
John has been our cat sitter for several years. He is reliable, respectful of our home, and wonderful with our cat! I can't say enough good things about him and his service.
Anna is very knowledgeable about cats and has a wonderful approach to engaging even the most challenging felines. She did excellent work in checking in on my cat when I traveled. She is responsible and is respectful of animals and their needs.
Sara watched my high-energy, high-strung Jack Russell rescue dog (Daisy Duke) twice this summer for two week-long vacations. She was recommended to me by a friend who has known Sara since middle school. I don't put my trust in many people, but Sara proved to be very deserving of it. Daisy was in great hands. Sara came and met with Daisy before the first in-house pet-sitting started. During the visit Sara played fetch with Daisy outside and the two got to know one another. During the pet-sitting week, Sara stayed overnight with Daisy and spent a lot of time playing with her. Daisy pees a lot, because she's a nervous dog, with some issues from her previous lilfe before we adopted her. Sara was patient and understanding. She also made sure Daisy was walked and exercised thoroughly. I HIGHLY recommend Sara. She's affordable, trust-worthy, and compassionate. I am a little doting, when it comes to my children (furry or human) and I appreciated the status texts from Sara letting me know how it went. After the visit I received a summary of how things went, whether Daisy ate well, and how much exercise and TLC she received. I loved this service. Sara also watered by small garden and I tipped her for that, since she did such a stellar job. What completely bowled me over was that Sara washed the bedding so that I didn't have to attend to the guest room, when I arrived home exhausted from our travels. Totally unexpected, but a really nice touch.
I’ve used TS&N several times. I often work long hours and sometimes travel. She’s taken very good care of Pauline since she was a kitten and she’s a very gentle, patient kitty sitter. You can tell she LOVES cats!
Jeanne has been watching our dog for 7 years! She does a great job and is very accomodating, especially with last minute schedule changes sue to the airlines! Our dog loves to go to Jeanne's, and we can relax in knowing that our dog is being well-cared for and getting all the attention that she needs!
Four Paws Pet Sitting has been a lifesaver to me and my husband. We both work very sporadic hours and they have been very accommodating to help get our dogs out on long days. My dog can be challenging at times but both Denise and staff are experienced working with animals. I trust them fully!
Jenn is everything you could want in a pet sitter and more! My cat does not warm up to strangers whatsoever, that's why his name is Fraidy. Jenn did a great job with the usual stuff--feeding, cleaning the litter box and so on, but she truly EXCELLED in connecting and making friends with Fraidy. She is patient, kind and affectionate. She took the time to get to know him. I have never used a pet sitter before and was nervous about leaving my cat with a stranger and handing over the keys to my house. She put me at ease too. She gave me updates, texts, photos and even sent me a video to relieve my worries--without being intrusive or excessive. Jenn is caring, reliable and professional. She truly exceeded my expectations.
Katie is a very sweet woman that I can tell loves cats. Her kitten Sophie was a delightful and playful little pal to my Senior cat, Charlie. If you want your cat to be loved as much as she loves Sophie then you should totally choose her next time you need a cat sitter. Kathy
Carrie did a great job pet sitting here for a week. I will definitely use her services again! And thank you for putting us in touch!
Kathy is awesome! I love how she leaves me daily notes of my new dog's walks/behavior. She has also been very flexible with some last minute weekend visits and I really appreciate that!
We are Chicagoland's premier dog walking company. Dogs Deserve It provides dog walking, pet sitting, and pet taxi services. DDI believes that an appropriately exercised dog is a much happier, trainable, and lovable pet. Thus, we put emphasis on energetic, purposeful, accountable exercise. This is called the Dogs Deserve It difference. About the Dogs Deserve It difference: Leash Etiquette -- All DDI walkers follow "leash etiquette" standards, teaching and reinforcing proper walking techniques and establishing boundaries. The dog is walked to these standards and the technique is shared with the owner. This means that DDI dogs do not aimlessly parade around city streets with limited direction, allowing the dog to pull on the leash and the walker to carry on a random cell phone conversation. Distance Tracking -- All DDI walkers wear a pedometer to track their walking time. There is no more guessing whether the dog has gone around the block or just out the door. DDI walks provide more than just an opportunity for daily output. Anecdotal notes left by the walker also include insight into behavioral and training issues. DDI is the first Chicago-based company to create an innovative walker tracking system. More Than Just a Walk -- DDI time with canine clients is interactive and purposeful. Owners report less anxiety, aggression, and other bad behavior from their canine companion. All these benefits are only available from our service.
I don't work. I'm just a high school student who is looking for a way to get some money. I love pets, and I'm free all day.
I do not have a business, but I'm a student who loves pets a lot and wants to help them. I also spend my time with animals and teach them.
