About Johanna

***As of October 1, 2016, we have moved! We do not have photos of our new apartment just yet, but they will be uploaded as soon as possible. We are no longer in Logan Square and are now in Bucktown/Wicker Park at North and Paulina.***

Hi! My name is Johanna and I'm a HUGE animal lover- just ask anyone who has known me for more than 30 seconds. I'd love to take care of your pets while you're away. I live in Bucktown with my boyfriend, Chris, who like me is a huge animal lover. Together we want to spoil your dog with love, affection and playtime when you can't!

I grew up with dogs, bunnies, hamsters and fish and in my adult life have lived with a few different dogs, including a newfoundland, a lab and a min pin, as well as cats. We don't currently have pets of our own and love to babysit for our friend's pets, even when they're not going out of town and just need a little alone time from their furry friends!

Chris and I live in a large 2-bedroom apartment. Our apartment on the 4th floor of an elevator building and has wood floors.

If your dog or dogs come to stay with us, expect lots of cuddles, treats (if mom and/or dad say it's ok!), walks, and playtime. We will make sure your dog gets the attention he or she needs and will not leave your dog for more than a few hours at a time. Your dog will be allowed in all parts of our home and on furniture if you're ok with it. Your dog can also sleep in our bed if he or she prefers!

We really don't have any restrictions on the types of dogs that come to stay with us- we truly love them all. We both have experience caring for large dogs (100lbs+) and small dogs. We both also have experience with dogs with anxiety and those that do not do well with other dogs. We are sensitive to your dog's needs and will make sure that he or she is never placed in a situation that might make him or her uncomfortable.

I am happy to answer any questions you might have. We look forward to being your dog's home away from home!

Johanna was wonderful with going the extra mile while caring for my dogs. She was able to do some extra tasks and was so pleasant about doing them. I'm so thankful for people like Johanna who care for animals the way she does.
It was so wonderful to have Johanna watch my two dogs for the weekend while I was out of town. She was super nice and very easy to communicate with while booking the reservation. Johanna sent photos and updates regularly which helped reassure me during my dogs' stay with her. Over all, everything was great! I highly recommend Johanna to care for your dogs!

Johanna and Chris are the best! I've used them a few times now. My dogs love them and I feel so comfortable leaving them at their apartment when I travel.
Johanna was fantastic! She was very responsive and made drop off and pick up very easy, even with our last minute reservation! She sent us a few sweet pictures of our dog and was a wonderful sitter.
Johanna was amazing! She was incredibly accommodating to our schedule and was readily available for a meet-n-greet beforehand. We had no concerns leaving Cooper with her and he seemed to have a fantastic time! Will definitely be using her again :)
Johanna and Chris were awesome!!! I felt completely comfortable leaving my dogs with them. They have a big apartment and live in a quiet neighborhood and dogs are allowed on furniture (if you want them to be). She also sent me updates with pictures which I appreciate. Usually I'm nervous to leave my dogs with someone new, but I felt good about leaving them with Johanna and Chris. I would 100% have them watch my dogs again!
