About Ian

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a 4th year medical student at UIC and love spending time with animals. I am less than a block from two different gated dog parks and have a 3 story house with more than enough room to accommodate pets! I have a lot of experience taking care of animals and would love to host yours. Attached in my profile is a sampling of many of the dogs I've watched in the past!

Ian was great and helped out even though he had a sprained ankle. Brosky seemed to really enjoy his time there and was well taken care of.
Ian was great!
Harley, my 15 year old chow-chow, spent 10 days with Ian. I was nervous as it is the first time he has been with anyone other than friend or family. Ian did a great job. Harley looked well groomed, had been eating and happy to see me. I'll be back, knowing Ian loves dogs as much as I do.
AMAZING! Pictures, updates, and available anytime! Super flexible and met my (super high-maintenance) dogs needs! Made them and myself feel comfortable. Would highly recommend.
Great experience with Ian - excellent communication & smooth vacay. Looking fwd to having Ian watch Achilles again!
We love Ian. He and Ming (my pup) are best buds. He is my go to dog watcher when I travel.
Very good experience, professional and flexible.
Ming had a great stay with Ian. He played fetch and was thoroughly tuckered out when I picked him up. Ian kept me updated with photos and texts and I appreciate it! I will definitely use Ian again to watch my precious pup when I travel. I booked Ian because of the numerous repeat clients and I am so glad I did.
This was our first time using Dogvacay and Ian as our dog sitter. Ian watched Curry for a week and we could not feel more at ease. We received photos throughout the week along with updates and felt that Curry was in great hands. He took her on multiple walks throughout the day too! We would certainly recommend Ian and will use him again in the future.
We had another host cancel on us last minute and Ian responded very quickly to our last minute request. The drop off and pick up went very smoothly and the couple pictures he sent helped us know that she was doing well while we were gone. Would definitely recommend to others and would use him again in the future.
Ian was great! He responded very quickly and was extremely flexible with pick-up/drop-off times. He sent pictures throughout Pilot's vacay and did a great job keeping me updated. Will keep him in mind for future bookings.
Ian was great with our pups. He was flexible with our schedule and very communicative. It looks like our dogs had a great time and would love a vacation at Ian's again!
pup seemed happy, thanks
Ian is very responsive and flexible. His house is clean and spacious, with an enclosed dog park around the corner. Bubu had a great stay. I would definitely sit with Ian again.
Ian was an excellent caregiver for Cuddles. We received daily pics and updates and Cuddles came home happy and healthy. We will definitely leave Cuddles with Ian again.
Ian is so flexible its great. He also clearly loves Shelby! She is very happy and comfortable there.
Ian was great! He was very accommodating about meeting beforehand and was great about sending pictures and updates while we were away. I'd definitely recommend Ian to watch your puppy.
Ian was a great host for Emma and Amos! I am always nervous leaving them for long trips, especially now that they're senior citizens. Ian was very accommodating and offered to have them come over for a meet and great. They were immediately very comfortable with him. I also appreciated that he checked in with me a few times during their stay and even sent pictures and a video. He's a pro!
Ian was fantastic - He sent pictures and videos constantly, and he clearly loved Shelby, he didn't want her to leave! Would highly recommend
We've used Ian twice to watch Freddie and he has been amazing! He is attentive to Freddie (who demands lots of attention) and is always great with photo and video updates. We will keep using Ian as long as we can!
Everything was so easy and convenient! Rosie had a great time, and will definitely be back. This has been the best Dog Vacay experience so far.
Freddie had a great time staying with Ian and we got so many updates while we were gone that made us happy that he was well taken care of. Ian will be our first stop for Freddie's next vacay!!
Ian was great even worked with me for times of pick up and drop off.
