About Lily

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Finally WORKING FROM HOME so I have plenty of time to spoil your doggies! :)

We LOVE dogs. We're very involved in animal rescue. We've been fostering dogs through One Tail at Time rescue group for 3 years now, and are also active volunteers at Chicago Animal Care & Control (the city pound). However, we're currently not fostering, and we will note on here when we are. So if your dog isn't dog friendly please let us know so we can make sure everyone is comfortable and happy.

We're very experienced, and can assure you that your pet will be well taken care of. We can also arrange a pick up and drop off if needed within 10 miles (as shown in our services & rates).

We have experience with many breeds, but due to weight restrictions from our landlord we cannot have any dogs bigger than 40-50 pounds in the apartment:(

We live on the second floor in a spacious city apartment, but have plenty of access to grass and long blocks to run around. We currently do not have any children or dogs of our own. I work in digital marketing (9-5), and my husband is currently switching careers so he's an engineering student, and is actually working part time as an engineer. We of course have evenings and weekends free to take care of your amazing dog! **Starting June 20th I will be working from home full time, so I will have so much more time to spoil your pup! It will also be perfect for dogs that need more potty breaks and/or attention.**

I grew up with Boxer dogs and the youngest passed away from cancer in November 2012 at age 11. Both my husband and I were watching him at this point, and we learned a lot by helping him through his battle. We administered various medications and were well prepared whenever he had those horrible seizures. So we do have experience with special needs.

We're extremely careful with any instructions given, and understand the importance of watching a beloved pet. We always treat them as if they were our own. We send plenty of pictures and updates because we know how comforting it is to see your pet happy and wagging while you're away!

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any more questions.

Lily was AMAZING with my doxie! It was our first time using Dog Vacay, and he's a rescue with some separation anxiety issues... so his first day staying with her was a little rough for him. She stayed patient and made sure he felt safe and secure—and checked in with me often to ensure he was in good hands. After day 1, he was comfortable and enjoying his vacay. Such a relief when I was 2,000 miles away! I couldn't recommend her enough. We will definitely be using Lily again, she went above and beyond and that really meant a lot to me and my pup. So happy to have found her!
Lily and her husband were fantastic sitters for our 10 year old dog Riley. They were accommodating, flexible, and kept us updated, and we could tell that Riley really loved her stay!
Lily and Jorge do a great job. Zorra loves staying with them and they send cute pictures and updates every day. I've used them more than once and will continue to use them again.
Lily and Jorge are awesome dogsitters! My dog took to them immediately at our meet-n-greet. They were so attentive to his needs and preferences and asked me the type of questions that would ensure he had a happy stay with them. They also provided daily updates with pictures (some with taglines - so cute!) I'm not sure, but I think my dog is going through a little withdrawal from them now that he's back home!
Lily and Jorge are awesome! Bob got sick duing her stay and they took such good care of her. Can't thank them enough
Lily and Jorge are great! My (rescue) dog has a number of fears and some strange behavior and they both had really warm and positive attitudes, despite my dog having a hard time adjusting. I could tell that my dog took to Jorge right away, even though she typically takes MUCH longer to trust men than women. Both Jorge and Lily were extremely patient and encouraging, and I felt 100% comfortable that my dog was in great hands. They're also just really sweet people, I highly recommend them!
Our dog is quite old and she was very comfortable staying with Lily.
Lily was fantastic! I had a last minute change of plans and she was really flexible and accommodating about everything. My dog, Bobo, had never been left with anyone but family before, and he quickly fell in love with Lily. She was great about sending notes and photos while I was away - Bobo was really well cared for. He even barked at me when I came to pick him up!
Lily, and her husband Jorge, are amazing! They were the most wonderful and loving dog sitters. I was really impressed by how quickly they picked up on my dog Bunni's needs and idiosyncrasies. Bunni is a rescue dog and they were totally patient and thoughtful about how to deal with her fears. Lily is an excellent communicator sending me texts and photos while I was away. I will definitely have them watch Bunni again!
