About Chiara

I am an artist and professor at Harold Washington College and ChiArts. I live with my 13 year old twin daughters in Wicker Park, minutes from both Wicker Park's dog park and Humboldt Park. Our house has a fenced in yard perfect for playing and extra exercise.

We have extensive experience with animals, as we have dog walked, dog sat and cat sat for years. We also volunteer regularly at the Tree House (cat shelter) and Paws (dog shelter).

We have one pet, a very mellow 6 year old male cat. We can't be dog owners right now but we would LOVE to take care of your puppy!

Chiara was amazing! My dog, Sasha, felt right at home and really enjoyed her stay there. Chiara was really understanding about trip delays that I had coming back, and I felt very comfortable with the whole experience!
Chiara and her family was SO pawsome! I just picked up Lilly from her DogVacay and I can tell she misses them already and had a great time! Thank you so much & Happy New Year Lindsay
Chiara was a dream come true! she and her daughters were like a 2nd home to our Coco! She went above and beyond in her care for Coco - superb updates, superb care as if she were her own. Coco loves them! and what a comfort to us knowing that she was loved and well taken care of! We love Chiara and will definitely have her sit for Coco again! Thank you sooo much, Chiara!! You are wonderful!! :) xoxo

Chiara and her girls gave our pups a home away from home. Riley and Lola got tons of exercise (walks, runs, and play in the yard) and we got lots of great pictures! We will definitely be using Chiara for our next vacay.
Chiara took excellent care of Gordie. This was our first time using this service and longest trip away from our one year old boston terrier-we were a bit nervous. Chiara put us at ease with daily emails and pictures of the day's events. She was responsive throughout the whole process and we had a meet and greet before hand. I would definitely feel comfortable having Gordie stay with Chiara and her family again.

I could not be happier with my first experience at DogVacay. Chiara and her girls were absolutely wonderful! I needed a pet sitter on short notice and Chiara was quick to respond and very accommodating. She took excellent care of my dog Moose, sending me pictures and updates throughout my trip, completely setting my mind at ease that Moose was in good care. I came home to a very happy dog who I think was actually sad to leave HA!

Chiara and her girls are very kind, loving hosts. I will certainly use them again in the future and would recommend them to anyone.

I would highly recommend Chiara as a host! I could tell my dog was happy and felt at home while I was away for 10 days. Chiara and her daughters were very caring and attentive to LuLu and her personality. I will definitely be requesting Chiara as a host again the next time I need one!

Chiara did an amazing job with Vincent! He is still a puppy with a lot of energy and he came home absolutely exhausted and all smiles. Chiara went above and beyond to make sure Vicenet hand a good time! She sent daily updates and pictures of their excursions to the dog beach and dog park! I couldn't have been happier with the care she gave.

Chiara and her family were so warm and welcoming! She really LOVES dogs and you can tell that by how much she goes out of her way. My flight schedule was super early so she offered to pick him up at my house! This was above the call of duty and it made my trip much smoother. She also sent pictures while we were away and updated me on things that they were doing. She even took him to the dog park! I can't wait to have her watch my dog again!! It really felt as if I were leaving him with a member of my family or a close friend!

Chiara was wonderful to work with. She was extremely quick to reply and she and her daughters are incredibly sweet. I felt very comfortable leaving Benji with her knowing that he would be given lots of attention and tlc. I highly recommend Chiara if you're looking for someone who is responsible, kind, and reliable.

This is the second time Chiara and her family have watched our pups! They sent the CUTEST picture of them at the park during their stay! I am very confident that she spoils our dogs just as good as we do! She is also very responsive with communicating before and during their stay. I am very thankful that we found her!

We dropped our pups for an overnight visit with Chiara and her family on Saturday. We felt a little nervous about the idea of leaving them with someone that was not our family for the first time, but we immediately felt at ease about it when we got there. I would say that she really cares about all the dogs that stay with her and that she treats them as well as she would her own! You can tell that she and her girls are truly loving and very responsible with your pets. We will definitely ask her to host our pups again!
