About Cara

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey there!
My name is Cara and I live in Lincoln Park.
I am a young, experienced professional who has had a love for dogs since an early age.
I have done pet sitting numerous times, both daily and overnight.
My parents have three dogs (chocolate lab, shih tzu poodle, and a maltipoo) that I help out with when my parents are away on vacation. I have experience walking multiple dogs at once. Also, I am familiar with giving dogs medication (my parents shih tzu poodle is old and needs medication every day).
I'm the girl you will see walking down the street who needs to stop to say hi and pet every dog. Currently, I do not have a dog, but I have plans to adopt one in the near future. I thought that I could use some of my extra time to care for people's dogs since I enjoy doggies so much.
I promise you your dog(s) will be in very good hands and will want auntie Cara to watch them again!
I am happy to provide references upon request.

Upon meeting Cara, I was immediately aware of her enthusiasm for helping dogs feel safe and loved while their parents are away! She is extremely accommodating and well versed in the many intricacies involved in caring for dogs of all ages during their Vacays. Her apartment is small but comfortable, safe, and very dog-friendly. She has great experience, as she is the go-to dog sitter for her friends and family. She's also great with staying in touch with her clients, all of whom should expect to receive adorable photo and/or video updates from Cara.

One thing that really stands out about Cara is her willingness to bend over backwards to meet her clients' needs. She welcomes medium and small dogs into her apartment but recognizes that larger dogs would probably be more comfortable in their own homes. As such, Cara is happy to offer dog sitting in her clients' homes to accommodate those pups who are too large for her own apartment. Her commitment to the comfort and safety of her guest dogs is unmatched. Your pup is certain to have a fantastic Vacay with Cara, in her home or in your own!
