I have two precious pooches of my own 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).
I also provide discounts for stays over 10 days, and military discount for those that have a furry friend that needs a home while their owner is on deployment.
Drop off and pick up times are between 7:30am and 6:00p on weekdays and 9-5pm on weekends. 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,98am-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.
If my calendar says I'm unavailable, it is due to my reserve duty in the military and cannot accommodate anyone because those are hard-set dates. They usually happen during the weekdays (and luckily not weekend!), so I apologize for not being able to be flexible with those dates.
Can't wait to meet your fur babies!
