Available for overnight/weekend care, and for dog walking or visits when you're away.
I'm a fur-mom of 2 very friendly, socialized Siberian Huskies. I grew up with dogs, dog sitting when I was younger. So I have experience with small & large breed dogs.
These days I help friends with dog watching, or visiting their homes to care for their dogs while they are away.
I'm very compassionate with animals and their needs, plus love petting and cuddling.
Knowing your fur-baby will miss you, my goal is to give them a caring and safe environment where they can play and socialize until your return. My older children love animals as well, and help me with my two, they will help me play and ensure your fur-baby feels at home until your return.
What's most important to me:
a) dogs are treated as PART of the family (love, cuddles)
b) they have caregivers who understand and meet their needs (socializing, getting a break from other dogs, exercise, etc)
I would like to understand any needs or requests for your pup to ensure he/she is as comfortable as possible, especially if your pup has a little bit of separation anxiety. I cater to those pups, and we are HUGE Cesar Milan fans! So being sensitive to these pups is very important.
My home has a large secured fenced in yard for pups to run free in, along with a great neighborhood for walks. I live minutes away from Switzer Woods dog park in West Dundee, which we are frequents at.
In addition to the secure large back yard, I have 2 tie ups in our front yard my two love sitting and enjoying the weather and watch everyone walk by :)
(chain link and extremely secure... lol)
Since the backyard is privacy fence they enjoy seeing everyone and a chance of scenery.
The interior of my home is dog-friendly as well. Any areas in my home off limits to dogs will have doors closed or gates to block. I do have a cat, so for example dogs in my home are not allowed upstairs (the cat's safe zone) so that has a gate so no dogs on stairs.
Laundry room, office where electric cords, basement doors will be shut. Also I like dogs to be in sight while in the home, so any areas I can't see them I tend to shut doors. Luckily open floor plan, so every other room (about 4 rooms of space) is fair game! Free to roam, play, and on nice days go in and out to the back yard as they please.
My dogs don't go on all furniture, but they do have their own ottoman and furniture that is all theirs :) I have dog beds around the main level for their sleeping pleasures, plus a large crate available for your pup to sleep in at night.
I love arranging play dates for my pups & other dogs. I take caring for my fur-babies and their activities just as serious as I do my human children :)
Your pup will be part of the family while in our care.
Looking forward to building a friendship with your pup, so they come back to play with us again!
