About Pete

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a retired federal investigator and lawyer with over 35 years of caring for dogs including my own and those of friends. Dogs I have loved range from a pug to a newfy, with many in between. My current best friend and running partner is Jethro, an 80 lb. Coon Hound. Jethro is very gentle and he loves everyone, dogs, cats and people. Depending on your dog's needs, temperament, and health, he or she will be walked every day. I can vary walks from short, to long. I am an avid long distance runner, so if your dog is athletic, I would be glad to take them for short or long runs (no extra charge). For your dog's safety and comfort, all runs will be in the forest preserves of Cook County and on leash only. I have a large, fenced and shady back yard excellent for cool doggie lounging on warm sunny days. Walks and runs are included for no extra charge, but if you would like for me to run or walk your dog without overnight or day care that can be arranged as well. For me dogs are God's most noble creatures, and deserve only the best and most responsible of care. For that reason, I require documentation of up to date vaccinations and parasite control from all of my clients.

Pete was great. This was our first time with DogVacay and Pete made our dog comfortable and gave her lots of exercise.
Pete is great! Our dog loves him and we will continue to use him!
Our two yellow labs had a great time staying with Pete and Jethro. Pete took our more active guy, Ajax, for a run, and our couch potato, Starsky, really hit it off with Pete's dog, Jethro. Starsky sometimes has trouble getting along with new dogs, so this was a huge accomplishment for him, and a big relief for us to know they were in excellent hands. The boys are looking forward to a longer stay in a couple of weeks. Thank you, Pete and Jethro!

Pete and Jethro were great!! We would definitely have our dog stay again. Pete was very easy to communicate with and arranging to meet him and his dog was very smooth. Scheduling the stay and updates from Pete during the stay was good also.

Pete was great with our dog and was flexible about doing what worked best for our dog. Our dog was very comfortable and happy there and got along great with Jethro.

Thanks Pete and Jethro!!

We will be leaving our dog with Pete and Jethro again.
Awesome dog sitter!! Pete and his dog are great. He treated my dog like his own. I would definitely use him again!
Pete and Jethro were (again) great hosts for our dog while we were away for a week!
Pete is an incredible pet sitter. His care and attention to detail from the moment we met him made him stand out among other sitters we were considering. He asked the right questions up front, had a checklist that made dropping our dog Chief off easy, sent constant updates with pictures, and most importantly showed obvious affection and care for our dog. He paid attention to things like our dogs separation anxiety and allowed Chief to make his house feel like home (even letting him sleep on a bed for part of the night!).

I would recommend Pete to anyone looking for an affordable, affectionate, and trustworthy dog sitter for any length of time. Thanks again Pete for everything.

We felt really comfortable leaving our dog with Pete and his dog Jethro. He kept in touch throughout our vacation and gave us a great visit report. Our dog was happy and tired when we picked her up, we'd definitely recommend Pete!
We couldn't have asked for a better place for Winnie to stay while we were gone. Pete did an amazing job taking care of her and not only provided us with updates throughout her stay, but also gave us a visit report when we picked her up. Pete took care of Winnie like she was his dog and that allowed us to fully enjoy our vacation knowing she was in great hands!

Eddie spent 17 days with Pete and Jethro and came home happy and in great spirits so it's apparent that he had a wonderful visit.
Pete was great. He was professional and knew quite a lot about dogs. I would recommend him to family and friends.
