I have been pet sitting 9 years. I have had many pet sitting/ dog walking clients. I have many current and previous references to share with you to verify that. I've also worked in Dog Daycare" A Brush with Greatness "in Crystal Lake, Il. I have volunteered at Helping Paws Rescue in Woodstock Illinois., and Animal House in Huntley, Illinois. I am a member of Pet Sitters International, and have included a Background Check. I love caring for animals. I knew after retiring from teaching 31 years in Harvard District 50, that I wanted to care for dogs/cats +/or volunteer at a rescue. I have 2 rescues of my own Ronnie and Cubbie. I'll care for your pets as if they were my own. I have many current references for you as well. Thank you 🐶❤🐶 Barb.

Barb was a wonderful caregiver for our dog. She sent messages on how things were going along with pictures. I sure appreciated that. I would not hesitate hiring her again!
