My name is Darcy and I have been caring for dogs, cats, birds, etc. for as long as I can remember. My parents brought home our first dog, Rocky, when I was nine years-old. Since then, we have had two more pugs join our family and three cats. Now that I have left my parents' nest, I have my own family of furry kids.
I'm a 29 year-old professional living in Wicker Park with my dog, Georgia, my cat, Martin and our human, Steve. I work full-time for a marketing firm in the Gold Coast, but I always have extra time for animals--big or small.
My dog is dog-aggressive due to the circumstances I rescued her from, but the blessing in disguise is that I now know how to handle dogs like her.
During my college years, I worked at Petco and gained knowledge of dog training as well as animal-medication processes, basic care and general grooming.
Although I cannot care for your pet in my home, I will be happy to come to your pet as often as you need and stay for as long as you'd like me to--even overnight! Some activities I normally do with pets I sit are walks, playing fetch (or throw if your dog is like mine who still hasn't mastered the whole, "bringing it back" thing), visits to ease loneliness, etc.
If you're looking for someone who can provide structured care and love to your pet at your home while you're away, please contact me!
