About Mackenzie

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I graduated in 2013 from Michigan State University with a degree in Animal Science/Animal Behavior. I am a full-time Veterinary Technician and have been working with animals since I was 16. Ever since I can remember, I've had such a love for animals, both large and small. I take great pride in my care taking skills and abilities.

I currently live in a garden level apartment in Wicker Park with my roommate (who works from home) and my 5 year old Yellow Labrador. I have several Adaptil Diffusers set up around my apartment in an effort to help reduce any stress and/or anxiety. I also have 24/7 surveillance cameras. I am able to watch over everyone for the small time I am away. I speak through the cameras and to the animals, if need be.

I do offer many services. I mainly run a daycare/boarding facility from my home. I watch your animal(s) for the day and/or board them overnight.

Please feel free to contact me for more information.

In my opinion, and the opinion of all my family and close friends, Mackenzie is the most qualified person to pet sit. Her love for animals is something I've never seen before and I have the utmost trust in her to watch both of my puppies when I am away! I have a very scared puppy that doesn't do well with other people but Mackenzie has found a way to get through to him and aside from me, she is the only one he is comfortable with. Not only do I trust her completely, but the piece of mind that I have when I leave my two boys (dogs) with her is something that money can't buy! She is overly qualified with how to care for them in all situations including emergencies. She is the absolute best of the best!

I feel super comfortable leaving my dog in Mackenzie's care. She has an amazing amount of experience with animals and is so nurturing! She is one of the most responsible and trustworthy sitters I have ever had -- truly worth hiring!

I could not find a better dog sitter if I wanted to, because Mackenzie is the best. I have 100% faith in her when she is watching my dog! She treats him as if he were her own dog, and calls me with any concern she has. She also allows me to check in as much as possible and video chat with my dog when I miss him. What pet parent doesn't love that! What's best is she works at a vets office for a living, so I know that my dog will be in the best hand if anything were to go wrong. I also love that she has the most friendly dog of her own! He keeps my baby so happy, it makes me feel he is less lonely! You should trust that if you leave your fur baby with Mackenzie that they will be loved unconditionally and taken very well care of. If you're looking for someone who is like a second pet parent then Mackenzie is the pet sitter for you!

Mackenzie is fantastic and such a natural with animals, especially dogs! Her care is so very reliable, as she is great at keeping me in the loop of my dogs stay; whether it be a photo, video, or simple text! Ultimately, I am a very happy customer. It's truly a pleasure knowing someone so caring and compassionate is taking care of my dogs. I definitely recommend Mackenzie!

There isn't anything bad to say about Mackenzie! She is fantastic!! I am so lucky to have found her. She is a complete natural with dogs (perhaps even a dog whisperer, I swear!)! I own a very anxious dog that I rescued from being abused as a puppy, and she is very nervous around people outside of the family. It was amazing to see how quickly she warmed up to Mackenzie, and how much she visibly enjoys to be in her presence. Mackenzie is very skilled with animals, and has worked with dogs ever since she was a little girl, this is very evident! If you are looking for a trustworthy sitter, pick this girl! She knows her stuff!

Mackenzie went above and beyond for us - I mean it. Really. You have no idea.

Our 10-year-old dog was sick, and I didn't feel comfortable leaving him with the friend that was originally going to come take care of him while we went to my in-laws' place for Thanksgiving (he's not allowed at their home). I was worried about our dog, of course, and also didn't want to leave him with someone that just signed up to take care of a healthy dog.

It was the day before Thanksgiving, and Mackenzie responded to my request very quickly. I only felt comfortable leaving him with someone with vet experience, and here she was, responding the day-of, saying I could bring him over that same day with all his ailments (I should say that he wasn't contagious). Not only that, but she sent us pictures of him and let us know how his recovery was progressing, and even went so far as to buy him special food when he wouldn't eat the food we brought. She was so understanding and flexible, I really couldn't believe it.

I literally trusted Mackenzie with my dog's life, and I'd do it all over again. She saved us! Oh, and our dog came home to us feeling much better than he did when we left him :) The benefits of him staying with a vet tech!

Mackenzie was great. Plenty of photos and videos while I was away. Quick response and easy to book with. Will absolutely work with again.
