If you’re like most pet lovers, you hate leaving your pet in unfamiliar surroundings when you travel.  You can arrange for friends or neighbors to take care of your pet at home, but often, they’re too busy, and you don’t like to impose. Our customized in-home Chicago pet sitting services provide your pet the care they need while you’re away- right in your own home. 

This specialized service means there is no travel trauma for your pet, they won’t be stressed and you won’t be inconvenienced by the need for transportation to a kennel or boarding facility. Your pet will stay at home enjoying its familiar surroundings, exercise routines, toys, mealtimes and much more without any interruptions in care.

Whether you have just one pet or many, our experienced pet care specialists can help! We are Certified Professional Pet Sitters through Pet Sitters International, certified in Pet First Aid & CPR through the American Red Cross and are bonded, insured and licensed through the city of Chicago.
