About Lynette

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there!
Thanks for taking the time to read this. My name is Lynette. I live in Albany Park and specifically am renting a dog friendly apartment because dogs are truly the greatest companions. In addition to having two pups of my own (at my parent's place in the suburbs- they do not live with me) I spent most of my high school years dog walking and sitting. Since moving to Chicago for college, there has been an empty spot in my heart knowing that I can't see a dog everyday! So I figured I would offer pet-sitting services to not only help you out, but also to make me happy knowing that I'll be able to hang out with a precious pup. I have experience with puppy training pads, dogs with diabetes, and dogs with eyedrops. I live in a very residential area with plenty of other pet owners and parks nearby. If your dog enjoys the beach, I can assure you that they will catch some rays with me!

Additional charge per extra dog!

ALSO! feel free to check out my boyfriend and my Instagram page of the pampered pups we sit/walk! @austenandlynettespets

Lynette seems to have a true passion for dogs and is extremely excited to begin watching dogs! She has a very cute apartment and roommates that are all looking forward to pitching in to watch the dogs. Lynette or one of her roommates will be home during the day to keep your pup entertained. She has no other resident pets so this is the perfect place for those dogs that do not like too much excitement or a lot of other pets. Lynette seems as though she is a great option to watch your dogs!

Lynette did a wonderful job taking care of our older dog, Riley. She walked her a few times a day which was a huge help. We will definitely hire her again!
If you are a person who has doubts about our country's future based on our young people, Lynette will give you hope for the future. She is mature, reliable, thoughtful, kind, dynamic, flexible, honest, and really loves the critters. Right before vacation, our old dog started throwing up and having diarrhea, which he only had once in his life, so we seriously considered calling off our trip. We spoke to Lynette about the situation and she inspired such confidence and willingness to take Bear Paw to the vet if need be and also said that administering the 5 meds he was on would be no problem. So we decided if he was symptom free for the 24 hours before we were to leave, we would go and that we would come back early if necessary. Thanks to Lynette, everything worked out, Bear Paw thrived, and she even created an innovative way to give him some medicine, because she said he was afraid of the syringe, which sprayed liquid meds into his moth. Given the circumstances, we wanted to keep in close touch and she texted us at all the times we would have wanted (but not too often). It was clear Bear had a great time and Lynette bonded with him. We highly recommend Lynette.

Another great stay with Lynnette... Says Guinness and Stella! Our pups were so well taken care of, that even our front desk team mentioned how happy they were with Lynnette. She even carried Stella down the stairs (19 floors) when the elevators went out, but stayed in good spirits. This is her second stay, and we will definitely book her again in a couple of weeks. We are so pleased that we have found someone we are comfortable with in a new city. Thanks Lynnette, we appreciate your caring attention to our babies.

Lynette was great. This was The first time we've left the dogs with a stranger since we moved to Chicago in January, and were very nervous. We interviewed a few sitters, but immediately felt comfortable with Lynnette. She stayed in contact with us constantly, and the dogs were well rested when we got home, so we booked her for another trip immediately. I would definitely recommend her to stay with your babies, she really enjoys spending time with them and she is a great guest in your home!

Lynette and Ariel did an amazing job watching Tippy while we were gone on vacation. I was scrambling to find a sitter who could keep Tippy company for the weekend of my sister's wedding, and these two ladies worked out perfectly. I was nervous at first, since this was Tippy's first time being away from me for an extended period of time. Lynette and Ariel sent us updates throughout the whole weekend, including pictures, which put us at ease. A few times during the trip I was worried Tippy would even want us to come back! She looked that happy. I would definitely recommend Lynette and Ariel, and will use them again in the future if needed.

Lynette has become my go-to dog sitter. I travel quite a bit for work and always want to make sure my two dachshunds are taken care of very well. Lynette is so attentive and makes sure to send me photos and updates on a regular basis. She is also very flexible and most importantly the doggies love her!

Lynette SAVED THE DAY! I had an extremely last-minute request and she was so sweet about it. She took great care of my dog and everything went so smoothly. She is a true professional and I will definitely use her again! Thank you Lynette.
Lynette was very responsive to our reservation request (within a couple of hours, I think), and overall, did an excellent job of communicating with me while we were out of town. Unfortunately, we had to be out of town during the Air & Water Show, and in the last couple of years, our dog has developed an intense fear of the jets. She gets very anxious and nervous and paces around the house following me or looking for a place to hide. We got anti-anxiety pills from the vet this time, and Lynette had to administer them and monitor our dog to make sure she didn't need to up the dosage. She was genuinely concerned about our dog and her anxiety, and she took the time to text me during and after the air show each day to let me know how our dog did. We would definitely hire her again, and we'd definitely recommend her.

Bruce seemed very relaxed and stress free when I came back home. Lynette played with him and gave him much needed extended walks. Thank you, Lynette.
We had an awesome boarding experience with Lynette & friends! They spoiled Macy to pieces and she loved every minute of it. Drop off and pick up were a breeze. We loved Lynette's energy and passion in providing our pooch with all the attention she needed. We'll definitely use her again in the future. Thanks, Lynette & friends!

Lynette took great care of our dog Cooper. She even sent picture updates throughout his stay with her. Thanks Lynette!
Lynette was amazing! My dogs are older and 2 need to be carried up and down stairs. She was very patient and sweet with them. I highly recommend her!
Lynette was great. She went above and beyond to make my old dog Max feel comfortable and at home. She was also extremely accommodating with my schedule. I really got a sense that she bonded with and cared for my pup while I was away.
Lynette was absolutely amazing!! She sent me daily emails with updates and pictures of my sweet Lenox and made me feel super relaxed while I was away. Lenox was in such good hands and Lynette is the sweetest. She showed her caring personality from the moment she picked him up to the late night drop off. If you are looking for a PERFECT sitter - she is it. Thanks again!!!

Lynnette was so accommodating to my crazy schedule and sent plenty of cute pics and updates. My pups loved all the walks and cuddles they received!
Lynette was wonderful. She was attentive and communicative throughout our dog Coco's stay, sending multiple pictures and text updates. She made sure to ask detailed questions and was intent on providing a safe and loving home while we were away. She was flexible on drop off and pick up times, and she was sure to follow our directives on food and medicine administration. We highly recommend her and will be sending Coco to her again!
