I really enjoyed working with Susan! She is patient and consistent with the people and animals she interacts with. Susan knows what it takes to handle and care for young horses and encourages a positive learning environment for both the horses and clients she works with.

Diana did a great job working with my 2 year old Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix. I adopted him when he was one year old and he has had problems around men ever since. Diana worked with Milo for 2 weeks to help him gain more confidence around both people and other dogs as well as socialize him. She was great at keeping me updated with pictures, videos, and detailed descriptions of what she and Milo worked on each day, which was very important to me! When I brought Milo home, I had to ask myself if this was the same dog I brought her 2 weeks prior... Milo is much calmer and has enough confidence to be okay doing his own thing now instead of being attached to me at the hip. He has stopped nervously peeing in the house and no longer growls, barks, or lunges at other people. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with a dog trainer! I was anxious to send my dog to just anybody I found on the internet because I want my dog to be somewhere where he is loved just as much as he is at home. Diana showed Milo that love and truly cares about all the animals she takes in.

Earlier this year we went on a short vacation, the first since we became homeowners, and for lack of forethought our only option was to board our cat for the 3.5 days we were gone. While she made it through okay, we couldn't help but think it would be less stress for everyone involved if we just let her stay at home and had someone check in on her, so we began shopping for pet sitters prior to our long vacation this fall. To give some context, we had certain criteria for a pet sitter. We didn't want someone who we couldn't trust to take the job seriously, and truly wanted to hire someone who does this primarily for a living. There's a measure of trust that goes into this - you're giving someone virtually unrestricted access to your home and hoping that they will take care of your beloved pet as you would. It's a tall order. We had quite a few respondents to our postings, and out of all of them we chose Helene after our initial meet and greet. The things that stood out to us the most were Helene's earnest interest in pet care, her depth of knowledge, and her bonded/insured practice. This is her profession, not just something to make some money on the side. Helene asked all the right questions of us up front, which is what we were looking for. I'm happy to say things couldn't have gone better! We left on vacation for 12 days this autumn and received daily updates via email to let us know that our cat was being well cared for. We asked Helene to stop by for half hour daily sessions, inclusive of feeding/maintenance/play, and it seems to have gone off without a hitch. It was really great to have one less thing to worry about, and they seemed to have gotten along very well. We will definitely be contacting Helene again in the future for any pet sitting needs and encourage anyone reading this to do so as well.

Belinda is an excellent pet sitter. She has taken care of my 6 cats and one dog several times over the past year. I never worry when I go out of town and she is watching my pets. I come home to relaxed happy pets who look very well taken care off.

We have been using Christy's Canine Care for about three years now and have had an excellent experience. She has a wonderful way with dog's. Our dog, Lexi, is quite skittish but Christy worked her magic and very quickly, she and Lexi where best friends. Our neighbor has a dog that no dog-sitter was able to get near enough to even get a leash on her. But in the first visit, Christy had the leash on her and was able to walk her. My neighbor caller her a "dog whisperer".

Angela was just what I was looking for in a dog sitter! I had no doubt Sonic was loved and cared for when I was gone and appreciated the updates she sent me throughout his stay. Her services and expertise gave me peace of mind so I could enjoy my vacation! She was also very flexible and fair

Dina took great care of our dog when we were out of town. She provided overnight care for our Ellie and visits during the day. We had piece of mind knowing that Dina was with our dog. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a caring, responsible pet sitter who loves dogs.

From the property to the people to the horses themselves, Paris Farms is high quality. The owner and head trainer is one of the most professional and genuine people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and has shaped me both as a rider and as a person in more ways than I could count. The training is spectacular and tailored to fit the rider. The horse I now own was the horse I took my first lesson on, and we have become quite a pair. All the lesson horses here are fantastic and fun to work with. The boarders and riders are all friendly and inviting. This barn is truly a family. The people support each other and care about each other. There is no competitive atmosphere and only kind words to go around. I owe so much of who I am and what I have to this barn. Riding at Paris Farms changed my life and I have recommended this barn to numerous friends. Never want to board anywhere else.

My dog is a shelter dog with multiple issues. This is the first time I have needed dog care beyond the assistance of family and friends. I found Nancy, General Manager of Fetch, to be both professional and caring. My dog and I immediately felt comfortable with Nancy and his dog sitter, Jennifer. Jennifer took care of my dog for 4 days and did a tremendous job! She understood exactly what my dog needed. She provided him with the same routine he is used to and a lot of love. To put my mind at ease Jennifer would text with updates and pictures each day. I highly recommend Fetch! Pet Care of Orland Park to Frankfort, to any dog owner.

The owner, Tracy, is fantastic! This was our 1st experience with leaving our dog and birds at home with a pet sitter! She was always in contact with us, sending updates and photos to ease our minds that things were well at home! And, when we got home, we had a day to day written updates waiting for us! She was, also, flexible with her schedule with us since we weren't sure when we would be returning home! Her prices were amazing! We expected to pay more that what she charged us! The photos attached were sent to us from Tracy!! Falcore Pet Sitting has us as permanent clients!! Thank you so much for taking such great care of our fur & feathered babies!!

Riding Lessons, Carolyn’s skills are outstanding. She listens carefully to what you want out of your lesson and will assist you on reaching that goal. She is always there to encourage and teach. Teaching and sharing the knowledge she has of horses is something she loves to do. The passion she has for the animals and the humans riding them is exceptional. She has been teaching, showing, and sharing her love of horses for over 35 years.

Verified review

I had the pleasure of working with Debbie during my stay in the Buffalo Grove area. Debbie was amazing! She came to my residence and spent several nights taking care of Roberto (my bunny). Bunnies require extra care because of their diets and Debbie has decades of experience working with animals - specifically bunnies. Debbie always went the extra mile: brushed, groomed and even brought extra herbs/greens for him. :) I was able to visit friends that I had not seen for years and had such comfort and peace of mind knowing that Debbie was at my home with Roberto. Debbie understands animals and gives them her undivided attention. I don't know how I could have achieved my work contract without her care, reliability and professionalism. She is indeed a Pet Sitter Extraordinaire. I have recommended her to my friends and property management - as she is the best sitter I have ever had. She takes her job seriously and cares for our four legged friends as if they were all her own.

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.

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
