Pet Boarding

Karen is a pleasure to work with, she responded quickly, we were able to set up a meet and greet time within five days. She has great system for the boarding dogs and her dogs to get used to each other! It was important to us to get regular text updates while gone-Karen even included some pics, it put us at ease to know the dog kids were in good hands! :) The pick up/drop off service Karen does is a great bonus especially when your trying to pull everything together before a trip. From my house to Yours is also a good value. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, Will be using Karen’s services again.

Dog Walking

Karen and team have proven to be 5 star material! At first, of course, I was nervous with trusting the well being of our 12 yr old Shih Tzu with a new company, but that nervousness quickly went away. Karen made us feel so comfortable! After each visit, she leaves an activity log sheet on our kitchen counter for us to review the visit for the day- which is great! The communication is outstanding and would highly recommend her and the entire team to anyone!

Karen and her team set my mind at ease when we're away from home. I know that my dogs and fish are being very well cared for. My dogs actually miss her when we come back! Her communication is perfect and her activity log sheets are a great tool in seeing how the visits went!! She's the BEST and highly recommended!

I have utilized From My House To Yours pet sitting service for more than six years now. Karen and her team have taken excellent care of my dogs and my home. They have provided pet visits during the week while my husband and I are at work and also when we are on vacation. Karen and her team are loved by my dogs. My dogs look forward to seeing their pet sitter and I am confident of the care that is provided to my dogs when I am away from home. I highly recommend the service they provide and I am confident of the love that they show to the pets in their care.

Thanks Sandy! and even though you moved away and out of the area, I am SO going to enjoy visiting with two of your dogs this month (Sept 2017) when you drop them off for an overnight board this month!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Each assignment is different so I need to find out the scope of each Petsitting Assignment before sharing the per visit fee. Are you looking for Weekday Midday visits because you work away from home and you are away from your dog many hours/day? Did you just adopt a puppy and your new pup needs one or two visits a day until they get a few months older? Are you going on Vacation and looking for a Petsitter to come to YOUR home anywhere from 2-4 times/day to visit with your dog(s). Do you have a large Pet Family and require a Pet Nanny to stay overnight?

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    This is my 12th successful year owning/operating a Pet Sitting Business in the Fox Valley Area! I have a College Degree from the University of Illinois in Animal Science. I have extensive experience in puppy potty training through Care Dog Training, Owner: Mazerri as well as Basic Obedience Training through Care Dog Training which helps me immensely in working with so many dogs in my Petsitting Business.
