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.

Great experience! Our dog was comfortable and most important, happy, staying with Pete & Jethro. It is obvious Pete truly cares for your pet and wants everything to go smooth for them. Pete was responsive to messages and gave us updates throughout our dog's stay. We are already looking to book again for our next vacation this summer. Thanks Pete!

Pete did a great job taking care of our Australian Shepherd during her two-day stay. He communicated with us throughout the stay, sending pictures and updates, and she settled in quickly with Jethro, his dog.
It was a pleasure dealing with Pete and his dog, Jethro! The care that Pete demonstrated toward our beloved dog was genuine. Pete was excellent in providing us updates and pictures!
