Kris and Israel made it a simple process from start to finish. They certainly know what they're doing and made it an easy choice for me to hire them to walk my dog on a regular basis.Sep 24, 2016Verified
If anyone in the West Town/Ukr Vill/Wicker Park neighborhoods needs any dog/cat sitting/walking, then I'd highly recommend Kris Richardson, Israel, and the team of Modern Pet. They have been taking care of my animals for 12 years now and I wouldn't have it any other way. I trust these guys so much and I know my cats love them and are always happy to see them. They're great with dogs, too, as they originally were recommended to me by my neighbor who has two pups.Jun 4, 2018Review from Facebook
We absolutely love Modern Pet. Our dog has problems with strangers but absolutely loves his walks with Israel. Israel and Kris really love their animal customers. Their added personal touches of the hand written note each time and holiday presents really put them over the top. Plus, they are amazingly flexible and willing to fit in walks on short notice, which is great with my crazy schedule!May 18, 2018Review from Facebook
We love Modern Pet! Kris has been walking our dogs for the past three years. They are always great at communicating, very flexible with our schedule and go above and beyond. Love hearing about the friends our pups made and how they did during the day. Highly recommend them!May 18, 2018Review from Facebook
Modern Pet is awesome - we would highly recommend them! They have been walking our dog for several months, and our dog absolutely loves them. Modern Pet is extremely punctual and communicative. We enjoy that they leave us a note everyday detailing whether our pup went potty and how his walk went. Our work schedule changes from week-to-week and Modern Pet is beyond accommodating to our dog walking needs - we greatly appreciate this!May 18, 2018Review from Facebook
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our dog care prices are based on how frequently you use the service. If you use us for dog walking five days a week or more we reward you with the lowest rates of pretty much any professional service in Chicago. Dog walks start at only $12! Our cat care prices are standard and start as low as $15.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We schedule a free meet and greet in the client's home so we can meet their pets and get to know what their individual needs are. Each animal is different and each client can expect us to tailor our services to whatever their preferences are. We work hard to accommodate our clients' various schedules and work with their pets on any issues they would like us to work on. From socialization and separation anxiety to physical problems and administering medications, we've helped with it all. Each client is given an online account where they can login and schedule a service, view their current schedules, and pay their current bills.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We are certified with the National Association of Professional Petsitters or NAPPS. We have participated in basic dog training classes. In 2016 we will be pursuing our dream of becoming professional dog trainers as well.
