My name is Elise, my sweet pup is Nala and your furry best friend will be staying with two of the biggest dog lovers out there - my boyfriend, Jack, and me! We live in a fun and dog friendly apartment on Paulina Street in Wicker Park. Your dog will be thoroughly entertained - they will have the canine companionship of my dog plus Jack and I have alternating work schedules so someone is almost always home with the dogs and if not, we have a dog walker from Wicker Pet that comes over to hang with and walk the pups. We take long walks through the neighborhood and frequent dog parks if that suits our guest. They get tons of treats, belly rubs, and a warm bed and person to snuggle with each night!
History: Established in 2012
I grew up in a small petting zoo of sorts on the NW side of Chicago with four dogs (2 yellow labs, a basset hound, and a cocker spaniel) plus a plethora of felines (my mother may or may not be a crazy cat lady!) When I moved into my own place, I was experiencing a bit of "empty nest syndrome" - I turned to dog sitting to fill the void and began this fun business in May of 2012. I loved the company of my canine guests so much that I ended up adopting a dog of my own from PAWS Chicago shortly after in November of 2012. Book a stay with my dog Nala and me in Wicker Park - I am confident you will not regret it!
My home is a great place for dog boarding as a friendly alternative to a cold, crowded dog kennel. I am willing to watch dogs of all sizes, from 10 lbs all the way up to 100+ lbs. Selecting me as your dog sitter will guarantee your dog a minimum of 3 walks per day and lots of love. I am comfortable administering medication (if needed) and am flexible in terms of special feeding cycles, habits, and dietary restrictions.
