About Jessica

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had 3 dogs, a boxer, a rottweiler/lab mix, and a basset hound, all ranging from mild/relaxed temperament to hyper mutts with stubborn attitudes that required lots of exercise.

I have also fostered pit bulls with Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue.

I have experience with old and sick dogs and thus have experience administering medications to dogs. I have experience caring for diabetic dogs, dogs with cancer, seizures, arthritis, separation anxiety, leash aggression and neurological disorders.

I am the official dog sitter for my friends. I love dogs and enjoy seeing them happy. I treat my dogs like people; they are allowed to jump in bed with me and cuddle on the couch. I take my dogs hiking and camping with me.

A plus, I like to run and would also happily take your dog on a run if you wish!

Here is what you can expect of me when I dog sit for you:

If am I sitting at your home I will treat your home like my home.
I will be clean in your home.
I will respect your wishes.
I will be easy to get a hold of.
I will send you daily status updates with pictures.
I will walk your dog at least 3 times a day, for no less than 20 minutes per walk.
I will play with your dog.
I will cuddle with your dog.
I will treat and love your dog as if it was my own.
I will administer medications if required.
Is your dog really hyper? I will even run your dog if you ask me to!

Please be open and honest with me about your dog so that I can be prepared to appropriately care for your dog. I am really laid back and have seen/dealt with it all, so nothing phases me.

Please also provide a crate if I am sitting for your dog in my home as the dog will need to be crated if I am not home.

I can't say enough great things about Jessica and her husband. They were SO flexible, as our travel days and times were a bit inconvenient. Our dog, Benson made himself right at home with their basset hound and the pictures were priceless. It is comforting to know that he was in good hands....and beds as he made himself quite comfy in Charlie's dog bed. We will definitely be returning to Jessica's, if she'll have us!
Jessica was awesome! She was punctual and communicative and I had no hesitation leaving my dog with her. She's warm and friendly with my dog and I knew she'd take good care of my pup!
