Everything went smoothly. At one point, we had a change of plans (delayed flight); but after a phone call,
quickly filled in.
We have used
at least twice and have always been impressed by their professionalism, attention to detail, and adaptability.
'We recommend

I started using
when I first moved to
December
of 2011 to board a pair of male Cockapoos who were brothers. Up until
June of 2013, their facility was on
. From 12/2011 to 6/2013, I
probably boarded my boys there a handful of times at the most. Aside
from both dogs exhibiting typical stress symptoms for 2 to 3 days upon
returning from being boarded there, the experience seemed relatively
fine.
The kennel had moved to their new location on Superior just
prior to my 3 day reservation in June 2013. Not disclosed upon making
the reservation and dropping them off was the fact that construction in
the facility had not yet been completed.
Picking them up 3 days
later, they were visibly out of character when they appeared in the
reception area - it was immediately clear they were not right. I picked
one of the boys up, and he smelled of cement. Took them both home, put
them in a tub and upon rinsing them off, you could see what was clearly a
thick cloud of cement dust running down the drain. Toxicity of cement
is well documented and in dust form around a dog, is not only inhaled
but ingested. Add to that a dog weighing only 15 lbs amounts to
destruction. That was a Sunday, which was marked by diarrhea and
vomiting with both dogs.
I called Monday and spoke with the owner
, mentioning their being covered in cement dust. He was very
apologetic, saying he had been trying to contain the construction dust
issue in the kennel, to which I was in utter disbelief he was even aware
of while also boarding people's prized possessions. He mentioned they
were working on sealing the cement floors and that he had just purchased
a pressure washer to help deal with the dust. I was speechless but in
my own mind, what was done was done. I had a nightmare unfolding fast.
The
next three months were marked by ferocious diarrhea with one of my boys
and complete lethargy, gagging/coughing, occasional vomiting and
complete disinterest with food with the other. After over $3k of vet
bills, I had to put the one with diarrhea down middle of August 2013 -
he was my soul mate. His brother continued to steadily go downhill until
I had to put him down as well March 2014. After easily $10k in total
vet bills, my two dogs were both gone within 9 months of being dropped
off healthy at
and being picked up completely covered
in toxic cement dust.
Hindsight's 20/20 but here's my advice to
anyone researching kennels: do your due diligence and if there are any,
and I mean any examples of poor judgment and management at the expense
of a pet, move on without hesitation.

We had a great experience with
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
and
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
. We have always enlisted friends to help us take care of our cats but when we were planning a 2 week trip for our honeymoon we decided to use a professional service instead and we are glad that we did.
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
emailed us after the first time she stopped by our apartment and mentioned that she had not seen one of the cats. It turned out that the cat had somehow climbed down behind the washing machine and had gotten herself stuck there. Even though
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
had already been to see them that day, she made a second trip back to make sure the cat was able to get out from behind the machine (which she was). Either way, it was very nice of her to make a second trip to check on them.
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
and
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
were very friendly and professional, and most importantly they took great care of our cats. We will definitely use them in the future and will not hesitate to recommend them to any friends who need pet sitters.

Once again, they provided great service with last minute scheduling.
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
was great and agreed to text us updates after each visit-which made our time much more relaxed. The cats appeared to be very calm and non-stressed when we got back. The litter and food areas were cleaner than when we left. He brought up the mails and papers each day. Highly recommended!

BWM took fantastic care of our cats while we were on vacation.
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
was our pet
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
while we were away and he is amazing. We recently adopted two cats from the shelter and they were still adjusting to their new home during our vacation.
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
took time to play with them (introducting them to laser tag) and carefully attending to them while we were gone.
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
left detailed notes and also texted me every day (he'll accomodate whatever frequency you like) and included pictures of the cats playing each day. It was a huge relief knowing that the cats were in such good hands while we were away.
I highly recommend BWM overall and especially
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
, as an excellent caregiver for your cats.

A+ all the way. I needed someone last minute to watch my cat while I went away. Pawlosoply was incredibly professional and responsive with finding the right sitter in a short time frame.
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
initially visited me before I left to check out the place and meet Tuesday since the person who was assigned to watch my cat wasn't available on short notice. When I let
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
know I wanted daily pics of my cat, they decided she was the best person for the job. She was very professional and sweet to my cat. When I returned home, I could tell he was well taken care of.
I highly recommend
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
and will use them the next time I'm away.

Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
has always been available whether its during the holidays or for longer vacations. He is great with our 4 cats. He is very reliable and brings in the mail and newspaper. His prices are very reasonable. He always leaves a note concerning how things went with the kitties, while we were gone. He's very trustworthy, you never have to worry. When you call him he calls you back the same day.

I have been a customer of Pet & Home Pros (P&HP) for 4-years and I could not be more satisfied. Owner,
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
, and her team are always the height of professionalism and I trust them implicitly. The reason why I required
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
's help, was due to that fact that my dog (
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
) and I were in the process of moving from the Western Suburbs to the Southloop.
Prior to the move, I asked my then Fiance if he could inquire with the building management team of our condo if they any recommendations for this type of service. Even though several recommendations were provided, P&HP was the only one that came with strong recommendations from the management team.
Even though she came with good recommendations, I asked if I....well, actually if
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
could "interview" her before any commitments were made. You see,
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
either loves or has a strong "dislike" for people so, it was important for me to see how he would respond to her upon their first meeting. How did it go? For
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
it was love at first sight and that was enough for me!
Since then,
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
has helped us with correcting
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
's need to constantly bark by training us a few new tricks...her help was critical to us since we were on the verge of being fined by our condo association due to an overly "chatty" dog.
Chicago Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
is truly a "whisperer" to animals because I have watched her interact with many other dogs that she takes care of within our condo. Even though she may not be able to take care of your dog personally, her team are people that you feel comfortable working with as well as trusting them with your 4-legged, best friend.
