We really love the in home setting used for training. Everything is done in a trainers home and the dogs are supervised 24hours a day. The trainers, and employees of Your Best Friends Dog House are great. They are very attentive to the human clients needs as well as the dogs and other animals. We were introduced to YBFDH about 3 years ago, we had an 8 year old Irish wolf hound and he was starting to act iffy. He would growl at the kids and was beginning to become aggressive to strangers. Our neighbor had used YBFDH for dog walking, and pet sitting so they mentioned to me they also offer dog training. We sent our old boy to learn some new things, and he came back without any of the negative behaviors he had previously shown. We now have a 1 year old Great Dane and he did his puppy and basic training at YBFDH. They do a great job!

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.

Christy has been excellent! She knows what she is talking about and I see improvement in our shelter dog. She really cares about your pet, is easy to get a hold of and is dependable/reliable. Don't hesitate to give her a try for your training or pet sitting needs.

Wow! After pretty extensive searching for a professional and trustworthy pet sitter for my new cat, I chose to hire Lainey after reading all of her wonderful reviews. She is so friendly and I felt comfortable giving the keys to my apartment to her after meeting her just once. Since I've been on vacation I've received pictures of my cat every day which definitely eases my anxiety about how she's doing while I'm away. She texts me every day to tell me she's been to visit my kitty, so I know she's being taken care of. She did ask as well if I'd like pictures and daily updates and also asked what time I'd like her to visit while I'm gone. I love that she's considerate of different preferences that everyone might have! Overall, she has made my vacation so much less stressful and I'm so glad I found her. She's definitely going to be my go-to in the future for any of my pet sitting needs!

I cannot say enough great things about Dina. Dina is my first pet sitter and from the start she made me feel very comfortable. Dina makes sure to send text messages and pictures to let me know how my pets are doing. My dogs are not the easiest, and Dina has such compassion that within a day my dogs consider her part of the family (and so do we). I HIGHLY recommend Dina!!!!

Jackie took care of our dog, cat, and rabbit when we were out of town. She was very professional during our first meeting and left a report of how the pet sitting went. We look forward to using Muttsley's again.

Fetch! Pet Care of Orland Park to Frankfort is simply amazing. I trust them completely with my two girls. They take care of my dogs when I travel and this past year, when my JRT had luxating patella surgery, they took care of her by walking her out in the yard and still took my other dog for her much-loved walk. I have been a client for 9+ years and I know they truly care about my dogs.

Susan has been cat sitting for us for over ten years and we have only positive things to say. First, she did cat sitting for one cat and now for our three. She always asks how they are doing along with detailed questions so she knows what is going on with them, their food and medicine issues, etc. She is easy to work with, 100% reliable, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and experienced. She has a very calm demeanor which our cats respond well to and she spends the time to play with them and give them attention while we are gone so that they are happy and in good spirits when we come home.

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.

Michelle groomed my 15-year-old dog, who suffered from arthritis and had bad back legs. Brownie had medium-long hair that shed like crazy and hadn't been professionally washed or brushed for years. After 90 minutes, she emerged from Michelle's van looking clean and sleek. I've recommended her service to my pet-sitting customers. It was a little pricey, but you get convenience (especially for dogs averse to car rides) and a groomer with a lot of experience and knowledge.

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!

This was my first time using a pet sitting service so I was naturally nervous about the whole process. I was basically giving a stranger unsupervised access to my home and dog. Fortunately, Sara was great about everything. A few days before my trip, she came to meet me and finalize Gizmo's care requirements. From the beginning, Sara was excellent about giving me status updates. I would receive a detailed email with a report on Gizmo (with pictures!) twice a day. It was extremely comforting to know that it was business as usual for Gizmo. She spent her days chasing squirrels, eating grass and trying to get someone to play fetch with her. Gizmo had the unfortunate luck of getting injured while playing. Sara quickly notified me that she thought Gizmo was favoring one leg to put weight on. We agreed that it was best for a vet to see Gizmo. Sara coordinated the appointment and made the vet visit in short order. Sara was fantastic about Gizmo's meds and after care. I couldn't have asked for a better caretaker. When I came back from my trip, I was happy to see that my dog was happy and that my house was in the same condition I left it in. I am definitely requesting her services again whenever I leave town. I recommend Sara's Compassionate Pet Care wholeheartedly!!

John takes care of my two cats - Pete and George - very regularly. My fiancé and I have very erratic work schedules and do not get a lot of notice before we need to travel. John has been so flexible with us, and seems to really enjoy his time with our boys! He even sends me pictures and texts updates! I think his rates are very reasonable, and he's worth the peace of mind if you have a pet who needs some attention while you're away!

Leo and Loni are the first furry babies I have ever had (I was allergic to lots of things, including many animals, when I was younger). So finding someone to look after my little ones when I am traveling was an important decision for me. When I reached out to Modern Pet, Israel explained to me the process and he came for a visit to introduce himself in person and meet L and L. It was clear to me that he and Kris (who I met later) love animals and the work they do. I happily recommend their services without reservation. The pets that we choose to bring into our home become family for many of us and it is a nice source of comfort to know that Modern Pet is there to look after my little family when I am traveling. - Keith

From the first time I spoke with Ani I knew she loves animals as much as I do. I had complete confidence in her ability and wish to take care of my cat as I would. I gave Ani details about Tuli's personality and her daily routine. While I was out of town Ani sent me photos and even a short video of Tuli, which was great because I missed her. Tuli was calm and in great shape when I picked her up. It's great for peace of mind to know your pet is being well taken care of. Thanks, Ani.

About

Welcome! Anyone can be a dog walker. It takes a special kind of individual to truly understand, communicate, and care properly for a pet one doesn’t own. My name is Sandra Gileviciute. Throughout my life, I have worked with many breeds of dogs on obedience training, dominance issues, pack orientation, socialization, and command reinforcement. I have owned small and large dogs; as well as several ferrets, fish, pet rats, rabbits, and reptiles. When it comes to animals, I have spent my entire life around them. I started Southwest Paws to give peace of mind to busy professionals. Every animal lover considers their pets a part of the family. Not being able to give adequate time for play, exercise, and continuous training is not an uncommon problem these days. Those that make up this city work grueling hours, commute long distances, and sacrifice a lot to be the best. Success comes at a price, but now it doesn't have to be at the expense of your pets. From personal experience, I understand that peace of mind goes a long way. Stress is never worth what it seems, so I encourage you to consider incorporating Southwest Paws into your routine. Use your new found positive energy to create more success for yourself. You can work overtime, take a business trip or even enjoy a personal day knowing your pets are being well taken care of. I would be happy to personally answer any questions you may have, or come meet you and your pets. No amount of money is worth your pets. But in our case, you don’t have to spend a fortune for exceptional, trustworthy, and professional service from Southwest Paws. I look forward to meeting you.
