About Pattie

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Animals are members of our family. They deserve love and respect as much as any child does. Fun, love and structure are the elements needed for a wonderful time. No matter the size or breed all dogs get cuddles, kisses and love here. I love animals so much that I am a foster parent for a rescue in my area. I have had some of my visiting babies have to be carried to their cars because they had so much fun they didn't want to leave. Your baby will be loved and treated as if he/she is my very own.
We believe in better behavior through socialization.

Patty and Mike have always been absolutely wonderful with their service. They are extremely welcoming, friendly, and assure that their customers are 100% comfortable with them, and their household, prior to leaving their pet(s) in their custody.

As a first time users they deligently sent us pictures and even a video of our pup meeting the other dogs to again reassure our comfort level. They offer both indoor and outdoor common areas to allow the animals plenty of space to play and acclimate to each other.

Patty and Mike are very sincere and kind hearted individuals who often adopt dogs to reassure they are able to find good and suiting homes, and offer them the best life possible. Which also, likely assures that your pet will get a great opportunity to play, bond, and socialize with all kinds of other K-9's as well!

Upon picking up our little guy, Mike was even kind enough to provide an overview of his behavior and what went well; as well as even identify an area where we can continue to work with them to assure he's the best indoor friend that he can be. But probably the best aspect of it all, we could just tell that our pooch had a good time and truly enjoyed his visit.

Overall: 100% satisfied with the service and hopefully will be using Patty and Mike again here in the near future.

Pattie was great with communicating & sending updates. My dog had a great time!
Pattie watched my puppy over night when he was 6 months old and took great care of him. He had an allergy and she gave him his eye ointment no problem, and although he was used to sleeping in his crate, when he wouldn't sleep her husband spent the night with him to ensure he was comforted. She will definitely be my go to when family isn't available to watch him over night!

Pattie's is a totally dog oriented environment. I have a terrier that likes to wrestle and chase and a Maltese. Both of our dogs were really happy there. My Maltese actually mixed it up with all the dogs. Very surprising! After being at Pattie's our terrier was much better behaved at the dog park. Thank you, Pattie. You really know dogs!!!

Pattie and Mike were great. Quick response time and sent us an update even though we were only gone for a day. Thanks for taking good care of Mercedes!
First experience using such a service. It was AWESOME! My dog was happy and had friends to play with and Pattie & her husband are supper nice people. Will definitely use them again! Thanks so much for taking such great care of Griffin.
Scout had a wonderful vacay with Pattie! She was easy to work with and kept us updated with pics of Scout and his dog friends when we were gone. Our return plane was delayed, but Pattie was very flexible and worked with us to have Scout and his things all ready for a quick pickup when we stopped by to get him on our way home. Thank you, Pattie!

Blue's stay with Pattie was great! I was very happy to get the photo updates and saw that Blue was having a great time playing in Pattie's backyard. I feel confident leaving our Blue in Parrie's care.
Madison and Hudson had a great time at Pattie's house. We so appreciated knowing they were in good hands so that we could relax and enjoy my daughter's wedding. Thanks so much.
Very accommodating and easy to deal with. First class care for my hound.
Josie had a great day with her new friends at Pattie's. I could tell she was happy and worn out when I picked her up after from daycare. Pattie and Mike are wonderful people and we'll be back soon and often for more doggy vacays!!!
We would highly recommend Pattie to all our friends and family as our puppy felt at home and enjoyed playing with all the other dogs.Pattie kept us updated the whole time we were away and sent us pictures daily of our pup.

Thank you for taking great care of our puppy Pattie!

Pattie did an excellent job taking care of our dog, Snickers! We arrived later than expected, for both our drop-off and pick-up, but, she was very understanding. We received photos during his stay, he looked very happy. I highly recommend Pattie as a sitter for your dog! Thanks, Pattie!

Our pug, Roscoe, had a GREAT time with Pattie. She was very responsive when we first approached her about a meet-and-greet and answered all of our questions. I felt extremely comfortable leaving him with her due to her knowledge of dogs and how comfortable he was with her. We received so many pictures of Roscoe, so it made it so much easier to enjoy our vacation. I'm definitely going to use her again and recommend her to all my family and friends!

From the moment Pattie walked out of the house to meet and greet us to the moment I picked them up from their 5 day vacay I knew they were at the right home. My little guy can try and be a little dominant and around other dogs his scruff is always up. Never once!!! He was so at home from the start and had all kinds of 4 legged friends to play with the whole time. Whether I was there or from the numerous pictures I received from Pattie he settled right in. They both did! I would / will book again without hesitation as her knowledge of all different breeds and extensive experience makes it a home away from home experience for my babies and peace of mind for me. Cannot thank her enough!!

Scruffy loves going to Pattie's place. She is great with dogs and Scruffy has so much fun. Thanks for watching him.
We felt very comfortable to leave our 'Trix' with Pattie.
At the time there were 2 more dogs and the way Pattie introduced them to each other was for me a sign that she knows what she is doing.
We had a kind of last minute situation and Pattie was very accomodating.
We absolutely will use her again when needed.

Pattie was great! She kept us up to date on how Halo was doing and sent us lots of pics. He had so much fun there, he's been taking lot's of naps since then recovering. Thank you Pattie for taking such good care of our Halo!
Had a great experience having our dog stay with Patty. It was so comforting to get updates and pictures of him while we were away. She took great care of him and I could tell he had a lot of fun!
Great experience. I would highly recommend Pattie. She updated me on my dog's well being. I was sad to move away from the area, I wish she could have moved with me! If you want your dog to have a great time in a safe and loving environment Pattie's dog care is the place to go.

Pattie is amazing. She is so kind-hearted and opened her home to our pups for a weekend. Our dog Shadow is particular about who she is around when it comes to other dogs. Pattie worked with us and scheduled just Shadow and my in-laws dogs for the weekend to ensure Shadow was comfortable and not in a stressful situation. After our meet and greet I knew Shadow was in good hands and a happy home. I feel like many people wouldn't put my dog first like that. I would definitely board with Pattie again and could not recommend her enough to others looking to book a Dog Vacay!

Simba had a good time with Pattie, and she sent me the pictures every day. Thank you Pattie!
Love Patti! She will be our go-to when we need a welcoming place for our min-pin while we are away.
Quincy had a great time at Pattie's. He came home exhausted and slept the whole day away.
Pattie was very accommodating for drop off and pick up times. She took pictures and sent them several times over our dog's long weekend. Our dog seems to have had a good time with her. I would definitely recommend her.
This was my 11 year old dog, Chip's first time away at someone else's house. He was happy to be around other dogs. Pattie is such an animal lover that there is no way he could have had a bad time. So grateful that there is a service out there that allows us to be able to board our dogs in the home of others instead of being caged all day. Thank you Pattie for opening up your heart and home to Chip.

My wife and I cannot say enough good things about Patty. We had to go to Europe for 3 weeks, and missed our two doggies every day. After the first couple of days, we still missed them of course, but we were no longer worried about them. Patty treated them as her own. I believe she even allowed them to sleep in her bed with her. She went the extra mile, gave them their medicine and cheese treats daily, and sent us pictures every couple of days.

Our babies were overjoyed to see us again when we returned, but I'm quite sure they miss Patty as well, and the new friends they made when they were with her.

If you leave your dog in Patty's hands you can be sure they're safe, sound, and happy. She's the best.

Pattie is so nice and welcoming to all four-legged and two-legged visitors. Riley had a great time spending the day and evening, and will certainly be back again. Highly recommend.
Pattie was a fabulous host! She went well above and beyond the call of duty and took excellent care of our specially sweet senior Beagle, Cisco! She showed him lots of love and attention. Will be happy to take him to Pattie again anytime! Highly recommend Pattie!

Pictures everyday, made the separation acceptable. Patti was wonderful at drop off and pick up.
Scruffy had a great time. My kids loved the daily pictures and updates of there dog. Pattie took good care of our dog while we were away.
Pattie is incredible! My husband and I were going out of town for over two and a half weeks and we were nervous about leaving our energetic Golden Retriever pup. We wanted to find someone who would love him like their own while we were gone, and we loved that Pattie is obviously devoted to dogs. We live in Chicago so we made the almost hour long drive to meet her hoping it would be worth it, and it definitely was. As soon as we met her we knew she was exactly what we were looking for. She is amazing with dogs- she loves them and they love her. She has a great backyard for the dogs to play in and the cutest dog of her own for them to play with. She truly knows dogs and we felt 100% comfortable leaving our pup with her. When we picked him up after our trip it was clear that he had the best time while he was with Pattie and that he got just as much love from her as he usually gets with us. She is our go to dog sitter now- we HIGHLY recommend her!

Cleo enjoyed her visit with Pattie & friends! She got lots of cuddles and play time.
Pattie was wonderful. Very friendly, great with dogs and definitely kept us updated. She sent multiple pictures a day which really puts your mind at ease. Huge fenced in back yard which is really nice for dogs. Her dog, Gemma is a sweetheart and Ozzy got along with her really well. Highly recommend!!!

Thank you again Pattie

My pugs had a great time with Pattie and were very well cared for (Bailey got an eye infection and she immediately sent me a picture and text asking what I wanted to do-she ended up administering drops and it cleared right up). She sent me daily texts with pictures and I could see they were happy and relaxed. Pattie is involved in dog rescue so she had a foster or two while they were there and they loved new playmates. Pattie's own dog Gemma is super sweet and easygoing. She lets the dogs hang out on her couch and they even slept in bed with her-spoiled!!! We will definitely use her again :)

Our dog, Max, can be shy. She took to Pattie like family. She's an only dog, but LOVED staying with Pattie and her dog Gemma. I couldn't have picked a better host for Max. Pattie is extremely loving, and patient. Max was well loved, and taken care of. Can't thank Pattie (and Gemma) enough! I'm sure I'll be calling her again if we go on vacation.
