About Verna

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
LAKE BLUFF - LAKE FOREST - LIBERTYVILLE
DOG WALKING AND PET SITTING SERVICE
I provide daily dog walking and check-ins for your furry friends in your home while you are away. I no longer board at my home. I have 40 years of experience caring for dogs and cats. Always been the proud owner of 1 to 3 animals at a time and cannot imagine life without them! My schedule is flexible and my pet care service is tailored around your pet's needs. I'm experienced, very reliable and trustworthy.

So whether you need a Monday - Friday daily dog walking service, have plans for a day or evening out, a weekend or longer vacation, I will take great care of your fur babies for you!

Each visit includes anything your pet may need: Walking, Playtime, Exercise, Waste Pickup, Feeding, Fresh Water, Litter Box, Meds, Lots of Hugs and Belly Rubs!

Pet Setting Visits while you are out of town. Many pets prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home where they feel safe, stay healthy, and with less anxiety while you are away. We set up a visit schedule that accommodates your pet. I provide daily updates by email or text with photos and I take great care of your home too!

My service area is mostly Lake Bluff, Lake Forest and Libertyville. Please tell me your location when contacting me.

The following rates are good for 1 to 2 pets in same household. Additional pets will be at a higher rate.

Rates start at $18 for up to 30 minute walk/visit
$20 for a 45 minute walk/visit
$25 for 1 hour walk/visit

$60 Overnights start in the evening and end the next morning. Overnights are subject to my availability. Additional visits during the day are $18 per visit. I may need to leave during the overnight for approximately 1 hour to visit another dog or my own.

Note: A meet n greet is required before first visit. To speed things up, please completely fill out your dog or cat's profile with all info including personality traits before contacting me. If you know when you will need my services, let me know your dates too.

Thank you and look forward to hearing from you!

Verna was excellent with my 2 dogs that boarded at the same time. They ended up needing extra days and Verna took it so easily. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. I wish she could still board dogs.
Thank you so much Verna! We had such comfort with the many photos and messages from Verna while on our trip!
Then, we had a 22 hour flight delay, change of planes, overnight stay, weather issues, mechanical issues. Verna hung in with us every step of the way! She communicated via text promptly and easily, but most importantly she was well aware and kept everything easy for the dog's comfort. We can't thank her enough!!!

We have had such a great experience boarding our pup Walle with Verna. She sends updates/pictures on how he is doing- and he always looks like he is having fun. Walle gets anxious going to new places but he seems at ease at her house and is always worn out when we pick him up!
