About Holly

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I've been working with dogs--raising, training, showing and loving them-- since childhood. Its fulfilling for me to connect with dogs on a deeper level so I don't board a lot at one time. I have large clients as well as delicate, tiny clients and a lot of senior dogs who are blind, deaf and physically challenged. Dogs don't have to go up and down stairs if they have arthritis or knee issues. My oldest client is 17!

My business started in a Chicago, Lincoln Square apartment. I'm in the country now in a ranch home on 2 acres, that is outfitted for dogs with indoor and outdoor pens. Sleeping arrangements include plush dog beds, crates, couches and my TempurPedic bed, which unless they're a huge dog, is where they sleep.

In summer, the dogs lounge on the deck where they can nap in the sun, watch hummingbirds and the deer that wander through the yard. We talk long walks in the country where there's very little traffic and 15 minutes away is the beach. In winter, two fire places keep us cozy after our brisk walks in the snow.

Many of my clients live in Chicago so I often drive into the city which is 60 minutes away to pick up and drop off. I do offer that service for a small fee. Whats great about my location, is that I"m not far from 94 and I'm on the way to Michigan where a lot of people travel for vacation.
