Boxer Joe is a friend to all and still a puppy at 3 years. He just wants to play and have fun all the time. Check out his pictures with some of his doggie friends that have come to hang out.

Our motto is a tired dog is a good dog so we take lots of walks around the city and go to the dog park. In the morning, we take a half hour to an hour walk then stop by the park and in the afternoon we find a new path through the city. Then there is LAST CALL right before bed.

We like taking pictures at historical sites, so plan on getting some with your best friend in them!!

I have had a dog in my life since I was three and will never be without a furry friend in my life. Manners are always important so we work on them daily. Rules are rules so whatever rules you have will be followed.

Your guy or girl will be treated as my own and won't even notice you're gone!

My Fiance and I are here to provide a safe and loving home for your pet to stay at while you are on vacation. We want you to be able to enjoy your vacation knowing your furry friend is enjoying his or her vacation too. I am home all day with your pet, this is my only job and is totally by choice and not for financial reasons. Therefore, our requirements may seem a little more restrictive but this is strictly in the best interest of your pet. Typically your pet will never be alone with the exception of trips to the store or dinner occasionally.

The requirements below are for your pups safety and Joe's. Our goal is to provide a safe and pleasant vacation home for your pet. Having up to date vaccinations and flea and tick medications keep our pets safe. These requirements will not be waived under any circumstances, no kennel would take your pet without you providing this information and neither can we at the South Loop Paw Pad.

Riley's second visit with Stacey and Joe the Boxer. Couldn't find a more caring environment. Received comforting updates and pics throughout his stay which chronicled another wonderful few days for him. We look forward to coming back.
Thanks so much!!!
Stacey was a great host! I reached out to her when I needed to board my dog last minute and she was extremely nice and responsive. She has a nice apartment with a sweet boxer. Stacey sent me tons of pictures while I was away and it looked like Scout was having a great time. I would definitely recommend booking with Stacey!
Stacey was a great host!! She took great care of our puppy, who had a fantastic time playing with her boxer Joe all weekend. We got lots of updates, which helped me cope with missing my pup! Stacey also sent us home with some helpful notes, tips, and treats!
Lucy had an extended stay with Stacey- and she had a great time with Joe, her boxer. Stacey truly loves dogs and it shows- she sent a ton of pictures and updates that put me at ease on my long-ish trip out of the country. It just so happened that Lucy's third birthday was during her stay, and Stacey baked a little doggie birthday cake for her! Stacey goes above and beyond for the pups she watches- I highly recommend her!
Stacey is simply the best! She took great care of my Golden girl Lucy. Lucy had a ton of fun playing with Stacey's boxer, Joe. I appreciated Stacey's attention to detail, as I don't leave Lucy with just anyone. She also sent super cute videos and pictures while I was away. I look forward to booking future vacays with Stacey, and 10/10 recommend her for watching your pups if you want someone who truly cares for your fur kids!
Riley's stay with Stacey was just the best. He rarely spends time away from us, so we leave him with some apprehension. He seemed to have a wonderful experience! While he can be nervous around large dogs, Joe was the perfect host. Stacey is caring, attentive and totally loves dogs. The pics she sent us allayed any concern we might have had, they put big smiles on our faces. We'll use her again and recommend her without reservation thanks Stacey!!!- !
Stacey is he best!!!!!! HANDS DOWN. This is my first dog and my first time being separated from him since I've had him. She made me feel so comfortable that I was able to completely trust Bowser in her care. She sent pics and videos sometimes twice a day. While I brought his bed, she had him set up with a space all his own with sheets and a comforter. And Joe, he's was sweetest most patient giant to my lil guy. Upon picking Bowser up, she gave the most informative and descriptive summation of his stay along with some very helpful tips considering I've only been a dog-Mommy for a few months. This was about as much of a REAL vacation for him as I was on across the globe. Stacey will definitely be my go-to sitter EVERY time I gotta leave my lil guy for ANY extended time.
First time using DogVacay, and selected Stacy R to take care of KiKi. Before our vacation started, we lost KiKi's best friend Abbott very suddenly (Corgi) which caused us all great heartache.
Stacy R had great reviews, a super sweet rescue of her own Joe (Boxer) and others raved about her good communication and avid walking schedule.
KiKi struggled a bit early on as he was still in a funk over the severe recent changes at home. Stacy R worked through it with patience and care. KiKi came home in excellent health, clean and happy. Stacy R is organized, professional and trustworthy. Highly recommend her and will call upon her again in the future. Thanks Stacy R and a shout out to Bill who took to filling some big shoes for me while I was away. Thanks again.

Stacey did a great job taking care of Doody while we were away. Doody got his daily walks and was very well taken cared off. Stacey was very thorough regarding the needs of Doody and we appreciate that very much. Doody felt very much at home with them. Stacey also sent us numerous photos of Doody's daily activities which we rarely get from other sitters.

We would definitely highly recommend Stacey to whoever would need a dog sitter.

Thank you, Stacey & Bill!
Simply put, Stacey is amazing! She is incredibly knowledgeable and really went out of her way to make sure Lucy stuck to a routine. Throughout her week stay, they went on long walks to various parts of the city, they made multiple trips to the park, and Lucy had lots of playtime with her boxer, Joe! I also got plenty of updates through messages, pictures, and videos each day. Lucy returned home tired from all the activity and really missed Stacey, Bill, and Joe. She will definitely be staying with them again in the future! :)
What a great sitter for the South Loop! They clearly take excellent care of their own adorable dog (which says a lot about sitters/people), have a lovely home, and are true dog lovers, clearly dedicated to making the pups' lives fun and active. I felt completely comfortable leaving my dog there for the overnight, and received many picture and video updates, which I LOVE.
Stacey was awesome. I had to leave on a last minute trip and this was my first time using Dog Vacay. She helped me understand how to go through everything.

She also was amazing with Jordy! He loved it there!! She sent me about 5 pictures everyday so that I knew my little man was being taken care of. Jordy was soooo tired after I picked him up he slept for like 2 days straight.

I will go back again! Definitely!!!!
Stacey and Bill were awesome. They were extremely accommodating and helpful getting our dog Sophie introduced to both her new home for the weekend and their dog Joe. She kept us constantly updated on Sophie's day, via texts and emails, that made it much easier to relax on our short trip away. Sophie was happy that we were home but we could both tell she missed her new friends down the street. Thanks again for taking care of our girl.
Stacey took good care of Hamlet, and he played very well with her boxer, Joe. Her apartment is well kept and she was very thoughtful when it came to making sure the space was set up well and comfortable for my dog. She went out of her way to buy my dog's special food so that Joe and Hamlet were on the same diet to accommodate my dog's food sensitivities. I appreciated that.
Stacey was great. She knew exactly the best way to introduce our pup to her place. She sent is photos and videos each day that we were away. We could see Tucker was having as much fun on his vacation as we were on ours. I'll definitely call Stacey the next time we have to go out of town. She is the best.
They are awesome. Stacy sent me regular picture updates and let me know my dog was doing good. I could tell Kona had a great time, she learned a lot and made a new friend in Boxer Joe! I could not be more pleased.
