About Steve

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dog-sitting, at first it was just something I did to save some side money for a Caribbean vacation, or pay for school, then it turned into a hobby, then it has become something I am really passionate about and now seriously considering making a career out of It. I am truly grateful that, over the past few years, I have had all these opportunities to watch so many four-legged fur-friends -- of all types, sizes, and temperaments -- and I believe taking care of dogs has significantly helped me become a nicer, more patient person.

I live in Logan Square, Chicago. I work full-time so I will not be able to provide mid-day walk. I walk my dog and guest dogs 3 times a day (morning, after work, and before bed). If weather permitted, we will go to Logan Square Dog Park and play there.

Please let me make friends with your dog(s), I promise I will treat them with total respect and shower them with love and affection.

Steve was great!
Steve was great as usual keeping us updated and taking great care Sydney. Sydney had a ball going to the park and playing with her new pal.
Steve was a great host for Zoe. Plenty of picture updates and very quick responses to any messages. Zoe is already looking forward to her next stay with Steve!
Steve was great!! He kept me informed on the well being of my dog. When my plans suddenly changed he was very accommodating and helpful. Definitely will call him again when I am in town with my dog. Thanks!!
Steve is a phenomenal pet care provider. He had a few challenges with our dog given there were major thunderstorms (which terrify our dog) but Steve provided lots of TLC and comfort which really reassured us all was well. We appreciated his frequent communication and concern. Can't wait to book with Steve again!
Steve gave lots of love to our pups! He's great!
Steve was great! Kept me updated with Sydney's activities and quick to respond to any inquires. Sydney had a blast!
steve posted lots of adoreable pictures to let us know that Sophia was being very well treated.
So great that I was afraid Sophia wouldn't want to come home at the end!
Steve took fantastic care of our dog. We will definitely ask him to dogsit again.
Our Doberman pinscher had a wonderful time while we went on a week long trip. We got updates the entire time we were gone. And it was nice not having to stress about our dog while we were on vacation. We highly recommend Steve.
Steve is a phenomenal pet sitter! He took great care of our dog while we were away. We could tell that our dog had really bonded with him. Steve also provided us with daily pictures and frequent updates on how our dog was doing. We will definitely have our dog stay with him again!
I never had any concerns and left for the weekend with out any worries over Steve. The previous reviews spoke highly of Steve and I can confirm everything that was said. Steve was great! He was very forthcoming and prompt with letting us know how our dog was doing and included specific details about how her day was going, energy levels, etc. We will be using Steve again and I suggest you do as well. Thanks for being so flexible as well, Steve.
Steve was awesome with my dog. My dog was well cared for, I received pictures throughout her entire stay with Steve, she got all the love, attention, exercise and cuddles she needed. I will use Steve to care for my baby girl any time. Steve is awesome and very affectionate with dogs (animals) and he is friendly and respectful towards his customers. Steve I truly appreciate you. Thanks a mill...
Steve was very good with Skip - I could tell from the pics and his messages. It was a relaxing weekend for him. Also, when Skip was scared of fireworks - Steve cared enough to stay with him. Thank you tones! :)
My Bichon Daisy had a wonderful time with Steve, who's a really nice guy and who obviously loves dogs. I was a little nervous because it was my first time using a dogsitter, but Steve communicated with us often and usually sent at least one picture a day, which showed that Daisy was having a blast! Steve was super patient with all of Daisy's quirks, and flexible with whatever we needed. I'll definitely contact him again when I need another dogsitter!
Last weekend was Nero's second time at Steve's place! We were getting there by cab and when Nero saw Steve he almost jumped out of the car!! Nero really likes Steve. Steve also gave him a bath and took care of Nero for one more night because i couldn't get to Chicago on time. He is amazing!!
Steve was very accommodating in accepting my last-minute reservation after I found out I couldn't bring Linus on my upcoming trip.

During the trip, he sent updates and pictures, and it was clear that Linus was very much enjoying his stay! He even took care to make sure my picky eater was eating enough! I definitely plan on using Steve again in the future!
Steve was really awesome to my pup Nero. He send pictures and text messages every day. Nero was very happy during his stay at Steve's place. I would definitely recommend him and for sure i will use his services as a pet sitter again!! Thank you Steve!!
Steve was wonderful and gave my girls all the love, cuddling, and attention they needed while I was away. Steve kept in touch with me throughout the trip. Even though I missed my girls (two chihuahuas), I knew they were in good hands and was at ease during my trip. Steve also worked with me on short notice. The previous sitter cancelled at the last minute leaving me scrambling. Steve responded quickly and made it happen so that my girls had a safe and loving place to stay while I was away. This was the first time I ever left my dogs, so he was especially sensitive to that fact and gave them plenty of TLC.
Steve is nice and very easy to work with. And, the best part is that Jax thoroughly enjoyed his visit. I'd definitely use Steve again.
Repeat customer - and again, couldn't be happier! He really understands dogs well and pays close attention to all of their needs. Absolutely wonderful!
Steve was absolutely amazing...he took such good care of my dog, and she was sad to leave him! He gave her a lot of attention, love, and plenty of exercise. I have a crazy work schedule, and Steve was so flexible and understanding. I will definitely have my dog stay with him in the future!
Steve is wonderful! My dog has lots of energy, and she got a lot of exercise, attention, and love from Steve. I have a crazy schedule, and he was extremely considerate of that. I will definitely use him in the future!
Steve was an amazing host! He sent us tons of photos and updates and it's clear he treated our dog like he was part of the family. Our pooch found an instant best friend in Steve's dog, Max. Steve is excellent at communicating and is very responsive to messages. Our dog will definitely be going back on his next dog vacay!
Steve was really wonderful n friendly. ..my dog buddy really had so much fun that when he left steve's home he was sad.... Steve was available when I really needed someone at the last moment. . He is really great with dogs plus he gave me some tips about buddy too.. If ever I visit chicago ever again I would leave buddy with him again...
