About Kate & Ryan

Thanks for giving us an opportunity to WOW you here on

A little about us, we are a husband and wife team that LOVE dogs. Kate is a professional dog trainer at a fortune 1,000 company here in the Chicagoland area. Ryan is the operations manager at a local Party Rental company.

We have 3 dogs of our own Galaxy, Trixie, Darwin ranging from 2-7 years old. All of our dogs are current on shots and yours must be also. All three dogs are registered with the AKC Canine Partners program and have different skills and abilities from rally obedience to agility.

Ryan & Kate also run a non-profit dog rescue and most of the money made here at Dog Vacay goes to the rescues funding.

We have been raised with dogs our whole lives, Kate even has had more than a few AKC Finished Champions.

We offer discounts on combo services so be sure to ask when booking! Our pricing is a little funky looking because of the way the site displays it but we offer sitting at our house or yours and even pickup and return service. We work with animals daily so your pet is in good hands.

Our home is also licensed as a Foster Home by the Illinois Department of Agriculture Bureau of Animal Health and Welfare, they oversee the licensing of animal rescues and have approved not only our organizations license but also our homes.

We also make the accommodations necessary for smaller dogs and older dogs. If your dog has special needs we can general accommodate them as well. If we can not we will be 100% honest with you. Like if your pet needs to work out on a treadmill everyday we might not be able to accommodate that since we don't have a treadmill nor the room to put one.

Contact us through DogVacay with any questions we try to reaspond the same day usually within hours.

My dog was in great shape from playing so often with Kate and Ryan's dogs. She was well taken care of and I got like a mini report on my pup's activity the night I dropped her off( her first time away) and mid-stay and when we got back. Great experience!!! Highly recommend.
If you look at Kate and Ryan's slide show of the dogs, mine os the Foxhound with the big smile. Sammy had the best time and was well taken care of. He missed all the excitement when we took him home-which means he loved it. Kate worked on his social (reactive) skills and I know he enjoyed his walk to Yankee Woods.i highly recommend this Dog Vacay as you get way more for your money. You might say this is the best place to board your pet.
I was initially a bit hesitant because of the size difference between our dogs, but after talking with Kate, it was clear that Cleo and Lola would get great care. She has extensive experience with dogs and it's obvious that this is a family devoted to their animals. Cleo and Lola had a great vacation playing with their new dog friends and we will certainly bring them here in the future.
