We have a daily dog walk, as well as they cover our house sitting and pet sitting over the holidays and sometimes in the summer if we travel. It's a great service, they truly love the animals and we love having them in our home. We know that things will be taken care of at our place while we are away! Use YBFDH for all your pet care needs!

I have hired Helene multiple times to care for my 4-year old tabby, Izzie, and one time she also cared for our bearded dragon. Helene is extremely diligent about taking notes during the interview process and asks detailed questions about things that I would never have thought about. I truly appreciate how she leaves a note every day about her interactions with our pets. It is nice to come home and see what the furry kids were doing in our absence. Additionally, if you request it, she will send a text message each day giving a brief overview of that day’s interaction. She (meaning Izzie) can be somewhat skittish when people come over, and I like that Helene will make a conscious effort to find her and play with her. She will even provide massages for your pets. In addition to pet-sitting, Helene will also bring in your mail, newspaper, and turn on and off lights. I appreciate her thoughtfulness. I also give her an A+ for reliability. During our last trip in early February, it was during all the snowstorms and bitter cold, and Helene still came out to see Izzie each day we were gone. As you know, cats can be fairly independent and not necessarily need everyday attention. I would have completely understood if Helene would have decided to stay home, but nope... she came out every day. I have no reservations in hiring Helene again for our pet-sitting needs. I think if you hire her, you will not be disappointed in the service(s) you will receive.

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!

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.

Susanne is a cat whisperer: even my shy 14 yr old fur baby came out to get petted by her. She sent pictures and updated us daily so we could enjoy our vacation. Our house was in tip top shape when we came home. Great pet sitting service!

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!

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!

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.
