Guest of the Month: Dante the Shepherd mix!!
(featured in the profile picture)
Dogs have always been in my life. And for the past 3 years, I've enjoyed the company of over 45 guest dogs through DogVacay. Working with dogs is one of my preferred methods of self-care. To be honest, I think I'm literally becoming a dog. Maybe you can relate?!
I can bond with your pup in many unique ways. We can make regular trips to Churchill Park to toss the ball around and sniff out bunnies. We can take entertaining walks around Wicker Park and greet other dog friendly neighbors. Couch lounging is also available in the apartment where we have central air conditioning in the summer and central heat in the winter. Lastly, I'm experienced with dogs that have anxiety or low self-esteem, leash aggression, and non dog-friendly tendencies.
I also have one reliable, dog-friendly roommate who can provide additional care for your pup if I am out of the house for a period, or in the event of an emergency. That being said: I will remain the primary caretaker for all other logistical matters (i.e. feeding, walking, etc.).
If you're interested in making a reservation, please reach out and share a little about your dog and his/her needs. Thanks for stopping by!
Frequently Asked Questions:
**Q: What is your schedule like?
A: I have decent flexibility when it comes to controlling my schedule. I am typically out of the house for about 6-8 hours Monday-Thursday. And I usually work from home Friday-Sunday. My schedule can be adjusted if I receive enough notice.
**Q: How many dogs do you take in at once?
A: I usually have one dog at a time because most people prefer that. However, I'm comfortable taking up to 2 dogs, maybe 3 on a special occasion. I will not book multiple dogs without getting permission from all the owners involved.
**Q: Will you take dogs with special needs (e.g. medication management, butt wiping, anxiety, leash aggression, not dog friendly, etc)?
**Q: Are there bonus perks for booking at Divine Doggy Destination?
A: Yes! There are 3 bonus perks! (1) I provide one frame-worthy photo of your dog while they stay with me. (2) All dogs will drink filtered water to ensure quality hydration. (3) Your dog could be the next Guest of the Month!
