About Carrie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have two precious pooches of my own (and soon to be three officially!) who absolutely love when I dog sit for friends=more playmates for them! I am a veteran and military reservist who works from home and I'm a graduate student as well which allows me to spend a ton of quality time with my bunch and fur baby friends, taking them for walks around the Arlington Heights neighborhood, the few parks around my house, or just playing in my backyard (of which they have access with a dog door). As a fur-mom myself, I love this service because it provides a real home for our furry nuggets, and it allows our fur babies to socialize with other dogs in a controlled environment. It also allows for multiple snuggle sessions, which I'm particularly partial to.
I offer boarding, daycare, walking/running, and check-ups.
Unfortunately I do not sit in other peoples' homes because I have my 2 pups plus any other furry friend to watch as well. I also cannot watch male dogs over the age of 6 months that have not been neutered, and that's to ensure the comfort and safety of my female dogs, as well as prevent the tendency of marking my furniture.
Other then that, I am a huge dog lover and I am also a member of the NAPPS (National Association of Professional Pet Sitters) and a foster mom for the local Humane Society. We have also added a new member to our team who is a military veteran who is PPH certified and can certify services dogs (and train). She is amazing with dogs and we are so happy to have her services offered!
I also provide discounts for stays over 10 days, multiple dog discounts, and military discounts.
Drop off and pick up times are between 7:30am and 6:00p on weekdays, 9-5pm on Saturdays, and 10-4 on Sundays. If you're returning late and want to see your fur baby (which I completely understand!), just let me know and we can work something out.
If you'd like to schedule a meet-n-greet, I do them on Saturday mornings from 9am-11am, so I can spend time with the doggy vacationers at my home and get them for their walks. If it's for a last minute booking, just let me know and we can work something out.

Can't wait to meet your fur babies!

We were worried that Axl would have a difficult time because he is very shy. However, we were so happy to learn that he had a great time with Carrie. She did so great with Axl that he is returning again and we are so happy that he enjoyed himself. Thanks Carrie!

She was excellent! Carrie sent photo's throughout the day and by the time I picked up my pup he was pooped and ready to sleep!
Carrie is great and my dog loved staying at her house. She sent plenty of pictures and updates and he was exhausted when I picked him up. Will definitely book again.
