About Odessa

1 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi!
I'm Odessa, a 3rd year medical student at UIC. I'm from Wisconsin and moved to Chicago in 2007 to attend The University of Chicago for undergrad. I made great friends in Chicago so I decided to stay here for medical school. I want to own a dog of my own by my schedule is so variable that I don't think now is the right time. They are sooo adorable though and bring so my fun and joy when I'm down, and this is something that I need whenever possible! I started dog sitting for a friend three years ago and since that time I've become the designated dog sitter for all of my friends. I've spent a lot of time with a dog named Monster, who is an 80Lbs mixed breed ball of joy. Monster requires a little more care than most dogs as she has a slight mental impairment. After working with her for about 2 weeks we developed such a great bond and now she remembers who I am and gets extremely excited when I come over! She's the absolute best. I have experience with breeds ranging from poodles to pit bulls and I enjoy working with different breeds because they each have distinct traits and different personalities.

My schedule is flexible, I'm reliable, and most importantly I enjoy dogs of all shapes, sizes, and personalities. I love Hyde Park just as much as I love Edgewater so commuting is not a problem for me!

Having a great sitter is extremely important and I guarantee the absolute best service. All your loved ones needs will be met and I can promise you that they'll receive nothing less than an amazing vacay!

Odessa was AMAZING!! We were so worried to leave our 11 year old dog with someone since she had come down with an ear infection and she needed daily medications; we were very close to canceling our holiday vacation. As soon as I met Odessa, I knew we had nothing to worry about during our trip abroad. When we came back, the house was as we had left it (only cleaner and with homemade sweets!) and the ear infection was gone! Odessa sent us updates, pictures, videos, and was super on top of things. I would recommend her with utmost confidence.

Odessa stayed with my pups for 6 days and they had a great time. She sent pics and texts to let me know how they were, I felt at ease with her staying in my home and will definitely book her again!!
