About Jillian

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you are anything like me, you become panicked at the thought of leaving your little one for any amount of time. Especially for me with Barley, my 5-year-old puggle with extreme separation anxiety. No need to worry while your little one is staying at Uptown's Ultimate Suite! In the heart of Uptown, the doggy amenities include; the beach/lakefront (just 5 blocks away), Challenger Bark Dog Park, elevator building, pictures as often as you want them, and lots and lots of love. All visitors must be dog-friendly. They will be taken out 3-4 times a day with at least two 15+ minutes walks. All food restrictions/requirements will be accommodated. During the week, I am a teacher so dogs will be unsupervised for at least 8 hours.

I have always loved animals and had multiple pets for most of the 35 years of my life. As I started the new year, I knew I had to make some changes to make myself happier and more financially stable. While reflecting on the best parts of my day, most included me spending time with my dog and other dogs. I have pet sit for friends for years, so this was a logical next step. Hope to meet you soon!

Jillian is a genuine dog lover and has a lovely apartment located close to the beach and dog park. Her dog Barley is super sweet and laid back, making him the perfect companion for guest dogs!

Jillian is also willing to update guests with updates and pictures as often as needed and will ensure that any food restrictions and supervision requests will be met during the vacay. Upon meeting her, I have the utmost confidence that she will be a terrific DogVacay host!
We were out of town on vacation and Jillian took great care of our dog, sent us photos and gave us updates. Our dog loves going there and feels welcome with Jillian. Jillian is a great dog sitter.
Jillian is the best. She too great care of our fur baby. Our dog was well taken care of an loves going to Jillians.
Tubby had a wonderful time with Jillian this winter staycay! I was so worried when Chicago hit sub-zero temperatures, but Jillian was an angel, sending me pictures of Tubby enjoying the snow and even loaning my tropical boy a set of booties to tide him over.
Jillian is fantastic!! My dog is older and she has anxiety. This trip was the longest we have left her with someone but I felt completely at ease and comfortable with Jillian the moment I met her. Thank you for everything and for taking care of Mia even when she was a little scared.
Jillian was great, was patient with my older dog and have him the medley of medications he had to take throughout the day. She took him on appropriately longish walks and overall made our dog feel at home. Also dropoff and pickup was super easy. She also has a very friendly dog of her own, which I think made my dog settle in quickly.
Amazing! Jillian was wonderful, this was my first time leaving Ruxin and she made everything super easy! I could tell Ruxin had a great time and she sent updates throughout the weekend which was greatly appreciated. Will book again!
What a fun time Pickle had with Jillian!! Pickle has some back issues--so I am as relieved that Jillian had an elevator. Plus, her pup, Barley, is the cutest.
My dog absolutely loved spending time with Jillian & her dog, Barley! We received tons of pictures and updates (which I loved because it was only the second time I've ever left him). My dog was spoiled the days I left him...he got lots of cuddles and even got to sleep in bed with Jillian and Barley. I will definitely leave my dog with Jillian next time I go out of town!
My pup immediately took to Jillian, and I knew right away she was in good hands. Both our pups engaged each other well, and Jillian's pup had no problem sharing toys, attention, etc. I got several pictures and updates while I was away, and Jillian always responded promptly from start to finish. I would definitely encourage a fellow pet parent to get in touch with her.
Jillian is an amazing host! I never have to
worry about my dog when I travel b/c I know he's in excellent hands!! My dog and her dog Barley have become best friends!! Everytime we leave Jillian, my dog is so sad. Looking forward to booking with Jillian soon!!!
Jillian was so accommodating that when she had a personal emergency she went out of her way to make sure that Niki would have a sitter while she was out. She kept us informed on Niki's progress and we loved and looked forward to all the pictures on a daily base.
We were pretty secure that Niki was in good hands!!
Jillian was a great host for Laila. She sent a pics a couple times a day, and was very flexible with the drop off and pick up times. I will personally be using her again in the future, and highly recommend to anyone. Thanks so much!
Jillian is the best! She recently watched my Puggle Diesel for 5 days and took such great care of him. He had so much fun playing and cuddling with her and her Puggle Barley. Diesel was even a little depressed once his visit was over!

She was so helpful and flexible with the pick-up and drop-off and sent so many pictures and videos while I was out of town. It was clear that Diesel was getting so much love and attention, and having so much fun during his visit with Jillian and Barley.

I am so happy I found a dog sitter like Jillian, and Diesel can't wait for his next visit with her.
This was Duke's second visit. When Duke recognized where he was--walking into Jillian's building...his excitement took over! He made a mad dash to her door, and once off the elevator, he nearly sprinted to her unit. Duke loves Jillian and Barley so much. Jillian is the absolute best-I couldn't recommend her enough.
Duke will definitely be back!!!
Jillian was an excellent host to Riley! I felt completely comfortable leaving Riley for the weekend knowing that he was in good hands. Jillian sent plenty of photos and videos. Looking forward to using Jillian again next month!
Jillian is awesome. She took exceptional care of my dog Duke...baking homemade doggy treats and even taking lots of photos. Duke and Barley got along splendidly. She kept me up to date with lots of photos and messages, giving me the peace of mind I needed while out of town. When I picked Duke up from Jillian's house, he was happy to see me, but as we walked out the door, had a sad look on his face . He missed his new friends!! He really enjoyed having Barley as a playmate, and really enjoyed having Jillian care for him. Thank you so much!! Duke will definitely be back!
I recommend Jillian with out hesitation.
Jillian was a life saver!! My friend had a last minute emergency and couldn't watch my dog. I contacted Jillian the night before I was leaving and she was very flexible and met me right away for a meet and greet. She was so accommodating that she picked my dog up the next day and dropped him off for me. Kobe had a great time playing with her dog and stealing all of his toys. I highly recommend Jillian and will definitely be using her again!!
Jillian did a fantastic job looking after my dog while I moved over the weekend. She sent tons of great pictures capturing my dog's day to day activities and was very flexible with pickup and drop off times. Additionally her dog Barely made the perfect playmate for my dog Charlie. Overall it was a seamless vacay and I know my dog would love to spend more time with Jillian in the future!
Jillian was a great host for my two boys! She came over with her son Barley to meet my boys and was very accommodating. She picked them up and dropped them off so it was very convenient for me. I would love to have her watch my boys again, they seemed to have a good time and came back to me very happy. I hope that Jillian will watch my boys again.
