About Neville

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***Recent Opening for Daily Walks in Berwyn and Oak Park***

The thought of going away for a night (or several) and not being able to take your dog with you is never easy. Figuring out where they can stay and be happy without their pack leader (you) is even more difficult! The days of leaving your dog caged in a stressful kennel are over. For about half the price of a kennel your dog can stay in our completely renovated 3100 Sq. Ft. home in Berwyn, with a 6Ft fenced yard, just 5 miles west of the Chicago loop.

My wife and I have both grown up with dogs and cats and have been animal lovers for decades. Additionally, I hold two dog training certifications from Catch Certified Dog Training Academy.

Training isn’t just about tricks, CATCH training develops an understanding of dog psychology and what stresses your dog out and what calms them. Yet, we’re still very aware that every dog has a unique personality and we do our best to replicate the routine your dog has at your home.

Medical care is no issue at all. We can handle shots, pills, and more. My wife had a 3 legged cat that required pilling and I had a 135 lb. German Shepherd that needed to be catheterized daily for the last two years of his life. We also both had to administer daily injections for years.

Your pet wouldn't just stay with us; as long as they aren't too shy, they'd be playing with us too! If your dog likes exercise, we're both runners! We also have a treadmill which I’ve taught more than one dog to run on! If running isn't their pace we can walk too. In fact we typically walk your dog two or three times a day and play with them in the backyard if the weather permits.

We do everything we can to keep your dogs exercised and entertained. This is especially easy to do since I work from home full time and my wife works from home part time. Your dog will almost never be alone, and by taking them with us wherever we go in the house we believe they're less likely to feel sad in your absence and more likely to feel included and respected in our pack. We're also happy to send you as many pictures of your dog’s stay with us as you would like.

I am willing to take care of dogs that have dog or human aggression issues, but please contact me to discuss the situation first.

BTW, other animals are not out of the question either. We've also hosted a guinea pig and a turtle:)

My dog had a great stay with Neville. I appreciate his knowledge and approach to taking care of dogs. He is very attentive to the dog's needs and clearly wants them to do well while being away. His home is clean and organized and set up in a way that even if he has multiple dogs at once, drop off and pick up are a breeze. I'd certainly recommend him for boarding your dog.

Neville is fantastic! My husband and I love how warm and inviting he is and that he screened our dog prior to accepting the reservation to ensure he'd be compatible with his playmates and do well in his environment. Neville is incredibly thorough, kind, and genuine. He keeps a very tidy home that is puppy-proofed. Neville's relaxed demeanor permeates to the dogs he sits, and our puppy Quinn was immediately comfortable. He sent pictures and updates over the weekend, and we were alleviated to see Quinn making friends and having a blast. He came h all tuckered out and not anxious in the slightest Thanks for everything, Neville! We can't wait now to take our next trip! out

My husband and I were nervous about leaving our puppy while we were gone for a long weekend, but Neville was a great fit! We felt completely comfortable with her there and we received lots of pictures and updates throughout the weekend.
Neville was a great host for my dog. Quick communication, and clearly experienced with dogs. Professional as well. I will book with him again.
Wrigley and Addison had a great DogVacay and Neville was a wonderful host. Our pets were treated as one of their family and had other dogs to play with. Wrigley had a heart condition and was given his medications on schedule. Neville kept us updated with pictures and messages throughout the stay. I give Neville five stars out of five and highly recommend him.
