About Gwen

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
DO YOU WANT YOUR PUP TO GET LOT'S OF ATTENTION ! THEN WE ARE THE HOSTS FOR YOU ! WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS (SUCH AS DROP OFF AND PICK UP OVERLAP DATES) YOUR PET WILL BE OUR ONLY CLIENT DURING YOUR STAY. ALSO, MY HUSBAND WORKS FROM HOME SO THERE WILL BE CONSTANT CARE AND ATTENTION GIVEN TO YOUR DOG. WE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU AND YOUR FURRY FRIENDS !

CARE FOR YOUR PUP IN OUR BEAUTIFUL WEST RIDGE BUNGALOW ! PLENTY OF SPACE FOR YOUR PET TO PLAY IN OUR FENCED IN BACK YARD! PLENTY OF PEOPLE TO SNUGGLE AND GIVE ATTENTION TO YOUR PUP WHILE YOU ARE GONE. THE WORST PART OF DOGVACAY FOR US IS SAYING GOODBYE TO OUR CLIENTS AT THE END OF A STAY !

We are a family of 5 (4 humans and a 9 year old well trained schnoodle) who LOVES to play and interacts well with other dogs. He loves when his pug cousins come for overnights and is looking for more canine companionship. However, he's also very good at just chilling and leaving other dogs alone if they aren't interested.

We guarantee 3 walks a day but our clients usually end up with more because my husband Rob is home much of the time. There is also plenty of time to romp in our typical Chicago Bungalow back yard. When the weather doesn't permit we have a full basement for exercise. The two teenage girls love animals as well.

Your dog can sleep in the kitchen or one of our bedrooms, depending on the particular situation.

We can't wait to host and care for your pet.

Rob and Gwen were wonderful caretakers for my dog. He usually can't get out the door fast enough. But he actually ran back in to say goodbye to Rob and Gwen's dog. Rob and Gwen were very accommodating. It helped so much. We can't wait to see them again.

Gwen did a great job at keeping me posted with messages and pictures of my dog, and I appreciated it. Thanks to her and Rob for keeping an eye on my beast.
Gwen was an efficient and friendly host. She and her family took great care of Kermit, and sent frequent updates.
