About Eve

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! We’re Josh and Eve – two of the biggest animal lovers you’ll ever find, located in the heart of Lincoln Park. We know how hard it can be to find responsible, equally loving and accommodating caretakers, which is why we are committed to providing the best for your pup and being their home away from home!

We’ve both grown up with dogs our whole lives, and have spent much of our adult years caring for family and friends’ dogs as well. All breeds are welcome, and, if you couldn't tell, we have a special place in our hearts for the bully breeds and wrinkly faces alike! We are committed to making your pup’s stay as customized as possible, depending on their age, health, temperament, etc. We’ve had much experience caring for dogs of all ages, dogs that are dog aggressive, dogs that are extremely friendly, and dogs with health issues. Whatever your situation may be, we are more than happy to care for your dog – and look forward to doing so!

We live on the first floor of a bright and spacious two-flat home. Our home is one-story, and a combination of hardwood floors and carpeting - great for all aged pets! We have a huge, private backyard and are in walking distance to many parks. You can rest assured that your dog will get plenty of exercise and attention in a loving home environment. During your dog’s stay, Josh or I will provide you with updates and photos via text and/or email – whatever you may prefer. All we need from you is to provide his / her bed or crate, their favorite toys (although we have a few to spare), food and we’ll take care of the rest!

We look forward to giving your dog the very best care because we know dogs are family, and they deserve it!

Eve and Josh are our go-to dog sitters when we go out of town. They both absolutely love dogs and treat our pup, Mosby, as if he's their own. We never have to worry about Mosby's while he's with them, and they always keep us updated with pictures and texts. Their place is great for dogs - Mosby loves exploring and running around in their backyard and then finishing up the day with snuggles on the couch. I would 100% recommend Eve and Josh as sitters!

Step inside Eve's home and you'll instantly feel the comfort and relaxing nature of the Vacay your pup(s) will experience! Your pups will feel right at home snuggling up next to Eve on the couch, swaddling themselves in blankets, or strolling happily though the enclosed back yard.

Though Eve welcomes dogs of all sizes into her home, she has a special place in her heart for big dogs--especially pit bulls! She has lots of experience with larger dogs, though when I visited she was spending time with 2 tiny dachshunds with her who clearly adore her. Eve is well versed in care for dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. She watches her guest pups carefully and has taken care to dog-proof her home to make sure all of her guests stay safe.

Don't be surprised when Eve's calendar books up overnight; she's definitely bound to be your favorite dog sitter as soon as your pups meet her!
Eve was absolutely great with our pup!
Eve was a fantastic host. Her home is a great location with a fenced in backyard that my dog absolutely loved. She is very responsible and knowledgeable about taking care of dogs, and is clearly an experienced DogVacay host. From the moment we met I felt very comfortable leaving Greta there and knew she would be in good hands. Eve sent me updates and pictures every night I was gone which I really enjoyed. She is great about making sure she has everything she needs for a successful vacation and very organized and flexible when coordinating pick up and drop off times. Greta loved spending the weekend with Eve and I will be sure to book again in the future.
Josh and Eve were beyond amazing. Molly had just undergone some unplanned surgery the week prior to her stay with them, and they were sure to accommodate all of her needs... and keep me calm with constant updates while I was away. They were absolutely fantastic hosts, and I can't wait to use them next time I'm headed out of town.
This is the first time I have used a pet sitter for our dog, and I have to say that the experience with Eve and Josh put my fears to rest. They sent daily pictures and I could tell my dog was definitely feeling quite cozy and at home with them. Also, we were just away for a weekend trip and our flight back home got cancelled so we were stuck away for another night. Eve and Josh were so awesome about being flexible with this and having a doggie guest for another night. They are such a nice couple and I hope to use them again in the future!
So great. Absolutely terrific people and caring...they took my dog in at a moments notice, got pics and videos and even a trip to Petco ! He is such a lucky dog to find 2 new friends and they are right down the street ! Love them !! Thank you !!!!!
Eve and Josh were awesome hosts! Since this was our first time using DogVacay, we set up a meet and greet. They instantly made us feel comfortable and answered the questions we had. We were able to enjoy our vacation that much more because we knew our pup was in good hands. Eve sent us plenty of text message updates with pictures and videos, and was super responsive whenever we contacted her. We strongly recommend Eve and Josh!
I was so nervous to leave my pug puppy Gigi with someone for the first time, but Eve made the experience so positive! She sent pictures and updates to let me know how Gigi was doing, and when I picked Gigi up, she was happy and full of energy. I will definitely be booking Eve in the future!
Great experience for both Dee and ourselves. Eve was very flexible and communicative with adorable and reassuring photo and video updates.
Eve was amazing!! She sent me plenty of pictures of my pup having so much fun and i knew he was getting all the love and care he deserved.
eve was wonderful! she not only watched dozer last minute, but still had time for a meet and greet. she was clearly very comfortable with dogs and different needs. dozer seemed happy and tired after his stay. thank you!!
I was very pleased with the care of this couple! My dog definitely felt right at home with them and even gave them plenty of kisses when saying goodbye! I received updates daily with pictures of her playing, resting, and taking over the couch! No questions asked, she will be back for another doggie vacay! Excellent experience!!!!
Eve and her husband were pleasant to work with, had a great home, and provided lots of updates. My pups were well cared for and looked really relaxed in all the photos and videos Eve sent!
Eve and Josh were wonderful sitters for my pup! They were very prepared for his stay and took the time to give him plenty of walks and play time. Eve sent me plenty of pictures and videos to show me how much fun they were having. Eve was very responsive and was very accommodating when it came to my dogs separation anxiety. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a sitter! Thank you Eve and Josh!
