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!!

She has been most helpful with my mother's dog, not only walking her, but offering training and suggesting better ways to work with her newly adopted dog.

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

We're very happy with Highrise Petcare for our little 4month old maltese puppy. Brian is extremely professional in terms of scheduling and communication. We love the little emails and videos of our little puppy after each visit. My work schedule frequently varies day by day- so we're happy that Brian is able to accommodate my hectic and unpredictable schedule so that our puppy is well taken care of. I initially contacted other puppy families (references) to learn a little more about their experience. Every response I received was glowing. I would highly recommend Highrise Petcare for anybody in need of dog walking or petcare services!

We got a new pup and we needed someone to come 3 times a day, to play, walk and feed her while we were at work. When I contacted Lets Walk Chicago, Lauren promptly responded to my emails and even met with us Friday night before we even got our puppy. When we got our little one we met with Beth the designated walker for the area as well as Lauren who fills in should Beth not be able to make it. Beth and Lauren are wonderful, they comes to take Watson out at the requested times, feeds her and plays with her. If for some reason our normal walker isn't able to make it, we get a notice the day before or the morning of that Lauren will be filling in, they keep us in the loop on everything. I also get cute pictures and notes of the days activities. So far I could not be more pleased with Lets Walk Chicago.

Jocelyn walked our dog at my mother's condo while we were out of town. We had a mini crisis and she handled it with smarts and flexibility. We will definitely use her again.

I've been very happy with Patty's Pet Service. She walks my dog during the weekdays and always leaves a note about the visit. She also responds very quickly if you text/call her. I just moved to the area and my dog is still very nervous about the new environment (much more traffic and close to a train track). Patty is a great mid-day break to help my dog become more comfortable outside and of course, go to bathroom.

I was desperate for a dog walker when my local high schoolers went off to college. Todd has been great. Wally, my kind of tough mixed breed shelter dog really likes him and Todd has never let me down.

Robert was amazing in taking care of my dog. He was extremely professional and responsive. I loved getting photo updates of how my dog was doing. I also greatly appreciated that Robert was trained in pet CPR and was independently insured - definitely kept my mind at ease whilst I was gone. I recommend Robert and the Pigglesworth Pet Project very highly!

I never write reviews about anything, But this time I had to. I never used a dog walker before but at this time in my life having a new baby I needed help. I came across Tori and have been using Her for almost 2 months. She walks my young, super hyper English Pointer and she's is amazing! And if my other Pointe needs some exercise she will walk both of them with no problem! My pups love Tori! THey get so excited when she walks in my house! She also is on time and responsive to my texts and she is very flexible. Tori has gone beyond just walking Freddie. She offered to help try and train him on basic commands. She saw I have my hands full and could use the extra help. So if your in need of a dog walker Tori is great!

John has provided the BEST dog walking service we have received in the past three years of owning our new puppy! We have had a number of dog walkers in the past for various reasons and John is by far the best! He is professional, dependable, caring to our dog, sends us photos after each walk, and overall is a pleasure to work with! The most important factor for us is reliability given we work during the day and John is always there to walk our retriever! He does not walk our dog with other dogs and devotes his time and energy to making our puppy happy while we are at work. John also goes above and beyond as he gives our dog a peanut butter Kong before he leaves so our dog doesn't bark while we are away. Please work with Top Dog Chicago as your dog will love the service!!!

One major concern of any dog lover when he or she vacations is how to care for one's pet, especially a sensitive and shy dog like our Luke. We found that Helene of Pawsitively Pets is the answer. From our first contact with Helene, she proved to be responsive and reliable. During our initial meet and greet, she meticulously collected information about our pet and our needs. When we left for vacation, she showed up every day in rain or shine at the agreed-upon time to walk our dog. She even left notes to let us know how the week unfolded! Helene is highly responsible, reliable, knowledgeable and caring. Her credentials are excellent. We unhesitatingly recommend her dog walking and pet sitting services. She performed magnificently for us! We will be calling upon her services again the next time we vacation!

About

This dog that I babysat before didn't like other people and only prefer me to come to see him and he know my voice and the way I cuddle him and play with him. My husband came with me one time, he was so shaken. So, I knew I was special to him.
