About Kay

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi dog lovers! My name is Kay~ I live in Downers Grove, with my 12 yo daughter, and almost 3yo knucklehead wirehair doxie, Peanut. I have had dogs all of my life, and for the past couple of years, I have been caring for friends dogs, as they go on vacation, or are away for long periods of time during the day. I recently lost my 14yo Bichon, Willow, and our home has not been the same. My dachshund came to us as a puppy, and actually, his big brother Willow, was not too fond of him! So as a result, my lil Peanut, has learned to be very polite around other dogs. He does not provoke them, and is very adapt at coexisting and sharing the attention that we lavish on our doggie guests! I am yoga instructor at a local studio, and work sporadically an hour or two at a time, and am otherwise home. Any routine your pet may have at home, I try to recreate here, so they feel safe and loved. Any special instructions, for care, love and attention are taken as seriously as the feeding and walking routine (which are taken seriously too I assure you!) I have a large yard, though my eyes are never off your pet , I walk my own dog about 2-3 times a day, at a local huge park with a wonderful path. I hope you consider having your pup spend some time with us!
sincerely.. Kay

We are so happy with how our 10 year old did with Kay's wonderful care that we have already booked a second DogVacay with her!
Greta had a good time at your house. I'm so glad I have you to leave her with when we go out of town. Now I don't have to worry about her. Great experience and I will be calling you again soon.
I was fully satisfied with the way Kay took care of my buddy, Casper. She sent me several updates everyday and he was freshly walked and ready for the road trip home. I would not hesitate to use her services again.
I can't even express how happy I am with this experience.

Kay watched Molly while our family went on vacation for a week. Molly is a 2 year old bulldog. She has dry eye and allergies. Bulldogs are high maintenance little things and I was so worried about leaving her but I felt really good at the meet and greet with Kay. I kind of followed Molly's lead and saw that she was able to relax during the visit and she also also just loved Kay. Kay is definitely a "dog person."

Kay texted me the entire time we were gone and sent pictures. Molly looked healthy and happy and actually pretty comfortable like she was moving in.

When I picked her up, she was so happy to see me although a little worn out. We don't have any other pets so she had some fun playing with other dogs at Kay's.

If we need a sitter again, will definitely book Kay.
We absolutely LOVE Kay!! She is amazing and such a wonderful person. Kay helped us arrange to have our pup attend our special day. She took such great care of our pup while we were doing a million other things- we didn't stress once about our dog and knew he was having a great time and getting lots of love and cuddles. Kay is a lifesaver- she went completely out of her way to help us on our big day and we can't thank her enough. Our pup tends to get nervous in a new surrounding, but he took to Kay and Peanut immediately! Thank you so much Kay for going above and beyond for us! You are forever a part of our lives :) We love you and are so blessed to have found you! Thank you!
Kay was amazing! She took such good care of my little chihuahua while I was gone on a 10 day trip. She treated him like family and was truly sad to see him go. She even arranged a meeting place for me to pick him on my way home from the airport so I didn't have to go home, get my car, and go back and pick him. I can't recommend her highly enough. Photo's and texts during my entire trip and I will not hesitate to leave my little buddy with her again - I may even leave Chachi to her in my will :)
Our pup came home safe, happy and healthy! Thank you, Kay!
I would definitely recommend Kay! She is great and made my dog feel right at home. She tries to recreate your pet's same habits from home and she's very accommodating. She is trustworthy, and I love that she sent me text messages and pictures everyday as an update. I think my dog was actually sad to leave!
She treated Lola like a daughter. I definitely will book again with Kay!
Kay is wonderful! Buddy has some special needs, he's an old guy and has to be kept from jumping down off furniture/stairs due to leg issues. Kay was very careful with him and rearranged her space to keep him safe. Her love of dogs, her kindness, and her willingness to work with us was above and beyond what I could have hoped for. Buddy was not only well cared for, but cuddled and loved as if he were with his own "pack". We'll definitely do another vacay with Kay.
Kay (and her daughter) were amazing with my dog child! Upon arriving to pick him up, I could tell that he had a great time because he wasn't that excited to see me. She sent pictures to keep me updated and put my mind at ease during his stay. Kay also has a large yard with ample room for dog play. I highly recommend Kay, and will be utilizing her from here on out myself! Thanks Kay:)
Kay is great with Bailey! She treats her as her own pup :) Kay is so friendly and accommodating to all my work days where I would otherwise have to leave Bailey alone for long periods of time. So happy to have found Kay and peanut for Bailey to spend her days away from home with :)
