Michelle did a wonderful job on my golden retriever. She worked magic on her. She looked like a completely different dog. She is the groomer I have ever used .
I have not had her work with my dog yet. We scheduled an appointment for September and so we will see how that goes.
She did a great job and got us in on short notice. Our dog acted like she was treated well. I was concerned when we arrived because of the condition of the outside of the house. But, all turned out well.
My 3 dogs look and smell great after getting groomed here. One of my dogs is part Schnauzer and we always get him a schnauzer cut, which isn't easy to do, I've been told. She did outstanding. I also have a yorkie who was dealing with an injury and she was able to work with him. After a bad experience at PetCo and having visited multiple dog grooming facilities, I am beyond pleased and satisfied with my experience at Deja Vu's K-9 Corner. I will be going back to get my dogs groomed here.
Denise and crew have been walking my dogs for over fifteen years now. I would never want to have anyone else. Whenever I have had something unforeseen come up, Four Paws has ALWAYS stepped up and helped me. They care about my dogs as if they were their own. Years ago when I first realized I needed dog walking services, I had an unfortunate experience with another company (they simply 'forgot to come'!) so it took some time for me to trust that Four Paws would not 'forget' us. I feel fortunate to have found them, and I am not kidding when I say I don't know what I would do without them.
Anna was wonderful! I was so afraid my dog wouldn’t like her and he just adored her. She was fast, friendly and did a wonderful job. She was patient and did good work. She knew what he needed and was mindful of all my dogs issues.
Rick's professionalism is unparalleled. His gentle, quiet, calming approach to dogs is what brought our stubborn Labrador Retriever and our very scarred rescue mutt to be so much better than we ever thought they could be. His capabilities exceeded our expectations and he is always available to ask questions and guide us as we learn more about how to be with our dogs. So happy we found him.
Lindsey has become my regular dog walker and I plan to use her for overnights as well. She is always sweet, professional and just loves my dogs. And, they adore her! I highly recommend Lindsey.
Entrusting Mr. Barkypants, my first-born son, to a dog walker is akin to how I imagine it might feel to someday entrust a less furry child of mine to a nanny: He/She sure as hell better be committed, conscientious, able to survive blizzards*, and love Mr. Barkypants as his/her own. Using this (perhaps slightly unreasonable) standard, I interviewed many, many dog walkers before I found Walks With Zara Chicago Dog Wlalkers, a dog walking company that Russell and his business partner own and operate. Though I haven't yet had to put them to the blizzard test*, it is clear that Russell is an excellent dog walker and human being. I feel strongly about not having just any random person walk Mr. Barkypants: I've witnessed how some walkers who work at larger operations treat (or rather mistreat) the 5-10 dogs they walk at once. Sadly, it doesn't seem uncommon for some dog walkers, on the north-side at least, to roughly yank leashes or yell and scream at dogs, or to refuse to stop walking to allow one of their charges to use the little dog's room, or to tie dogs up to a post in the park while the walker enjoys a cigarette and long chat with his friends. I am confident that Russell does NOT do this; Mr. Barkypants would probably behave very differently with him than he does. Interestingly, though Mr. Barkypants isn't terribly fond of strangers and he is particularly non-fond of strangers who are male and who wear hats, he took to the hat-wearing Russell like he took to liver treats from the first or second walk on. Russell has a gentle, quiet, calm, non-domineering manner with dogs (and humans, really). He isn't embarrassed about speaking to dogs in goofy voices -- a talent I quite appreciate. Moreover, wrt his human dealings, too, Russell is prompt and as honest as Abe: He lets us know when he isn't able to walk a full hour (because of severe weather or sickness) and deducts from his pay despite our asking him to take the full amount. Rates, by the way, are extremely reasonable for Chicago dog walking, especially since Mr. Barkypants gets Russell all to himself on walks. According to their website, Russell is bonded and insured as a dog walker and is a member of the Association of pet sitters. I can speak with knowledge about Russell's excellent credentials as a dog walker. He *will* treat your dogs with respect and patience -- or at least I'm pretty sure they will based on how they've treated my first born son. I can't recommend him enough.
My husband and I have used Cedar Lane Kennels for about 20 years! We are on our second and third dogs we board there. The staff has always been great and the dogs don't mind going! They are always making sure the "kids" are happy! One year Peter called me while we were on vacation due to our one Bull Terriers had an infection and wanted permission to take her to his Vet! We love that each pet gets their play time and a bit of extra attention! Thanks Cedar Lane Kennels!
I love working with dogs! Able to care for rowdy or shy hounds. Walking and watching - keeping the dogs safe!
We are very willing to help take care of your dogs! We're experienced because we have dogs ourselves and we have taken care of dogs in the past.
I will walk and feed lonely pets during daylight hours. I will take in canine guests for limited stays in our home. I am a retired lifelong dog lover and trainer from the southwest suburbs.
I'll make sure your dog is properly taken care of like it was my own. I need at least a business day to respond.
Hello, I am a basic obedience trainer. I help socialize and train all breeds of dogs. I believe in positive reinforcement.
I pick up the dogs from their houses and give them a walk for the time that's given me. I also play with them and walk them in a safe place. Then, I drop them off at their houses.
I am Bolingbrook based dog walker, ready to walk your dogs at your call! I am fairly new to walking other's dogs, but I have been owning my own dog (Jack Russell/terrier mix) for five years now!
I care for pets' feedings and walking. I can also provide help with your shopping needs if you are starting out new or changing careers. I also have pets at home. I have three cats and one recently adopted dog.
I provide one-on-one training for six weeks. I work with you until you feel happy with the results. Follow-ups are free.
My prices are negotiable and I'm able to customize my route to make the dog feel comfortable
I do anything, including walking dogs. I am very good with kids also. If interested, email or call me. I clean also.
