About Devan

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Devan and I have been pet sitting many many years for clients, friends, family and more here in Chicago. (I'm happy to provide references!) I grew up with dogs, cats, reptiles and more. I've done a lot of house/pet sitting, but can take in a small dog at my apartment if needed short term. But it is more preferable to stay at the owner's home for your pet's comfort and as a bonus, I always leave the home in better shape/cleaner than when I arrived. ;)

I keep clients up to date with their loved furry friend(s) with pictures and videos so they can feel at ease knowing their pet is being well taken care of.

A little bit about me, I am a 26 year old female and grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. For work, I do online/digital marketing for small businesses. For fun, I am a musician and lead an indie-rock band at my church. I live in Lincoln Square in Chicago. I've grown up with several dogs, and we had a litter of cats that lived under our porch that we took in as well when I was younger. We also had everything from tree frogs to snakes, turtles and iguanas growing up. I don't have a pet right now, so I love being able to pet sit to help someone out and enjoy their company. I've been house/pet sitting pretty regularly for several clients for the past 5 years as extra income.

Again, I'm happy to provide references! I'm often available on short notice as well.

Thank you for your consideration!

Dog owners beware - your pup may never want to leave Devan's comfortable, welcoming apartment after having a Vacay with her!

Because she works from home, Devan can offer your pup plenty of attention and snuggle time while you're away enjoying your own vacation. Devan lives on a safe, tree-lined street and near a large, open park. Your pup is sure to have just as much fun inside as s/he will outside.

Devan also offers dog walking services in addition to hosting Vacay-tioners, so your dog's needs can be met in numerous ways. She's loaded with experience, having become the official "home away from home" for many of her friends' and family's dogs.

According to Mona, Devan was a ton of fun, took her on walks, got tricked into a lot of tennis ball, and cuddled a bunch. We enjoyed our vacation knowing that Mona was having a great time and being well taken care of. A couple text updates were the perfect amount to keep us updated. All in all a great experience, a great sitter that we wouldn't hesitate to use again in the future. Thanks Devan!

This was my first experience using DogVacay and I'm so happy I did. Devan was wonderful from start to finish. She was in touch daily with updates and photos. I felt so comfortable leaving my pup with her and will definitely use her again in the future.
