What We Love To Do
Pet Sitting Pet Boarding
About Us
Receiving many referrals from local trainers and behavioral vets, I provide exclusive, customized, round-the-clock care unlike any other in the Chicagoland area.

I have a pet free home (no compatibility issues!) and only sit for one family at a time. Nicknamed Shangri-laura by my clients,our lovingly restored wooded acre is in a secluded neighborhood adjacent to a forest preserve (great sniffs and enrichment, very little traffic). I stay at home full time when pet sitting. It is not unusual for dogs to be with me for over a week and have never been alone in my home. (My old timers can handle me going to the grocery store, but I never leave dogs on their first stay.)

I am located in the Far West suburbs but do have clients who bring their dogs to me from downtown Chicago and throughout the suburban area. Who doesn't love some time in 'the country?"

I have no breed restrictions, with clients ranging from 4# mini shih tzus to 90# pitties, and many rescue dogs in the mix. (I am on the Board of a local rescue.)

Senior dogs, medical need, behavioral issues, dietary issues...I work with a wide range of special needs dogs and will make sure I have a thorough understanding of your pup's needs. I will happily consult with your trainer or vet to customize an effective care plan if your dog will do best with a team approach.

My husband and I prefer that I sit in our home, although I am able to stay at your home if this is needed.

Your pup will have a full range of high quality toys and treats (which I invite you to review and approve) and will be welcome to enjoy snuggling on our furniture. Stealing our blankets at night is allowed. We will even sleep in our own guest room if your pup would do better on the lower bed!

You simply will not find a more accommodating sitter.

Due to the highly personalized, exclusive nature of my service, I do book very far in advance (up to 2 years!) so it is never too early to contact me if you would like to set up a meet and greet and see if I am the right sitter for you.

Please refer to my website for more detailed information, including references and photos.
