About this pro

I have a passion for animals and their care. I keep pets and homes well cared for while families are away. I have been providing in-home care and house sitting for pets, children and the elderly for over three decades. I serve clients in Chicago and surrounding suburbs.

I enjoy walking dogs. I enjoy providing comfortable and safe environments for pets. I love to play with pets and keep them entertained. I enjoy knowing that customers can travel comfortably, knowing their pets and houses are well cared for in their absence.

    Dina is very caring with animals, as well as dependable, detail-oriented, and honest. I was completely at ease leaving town with her taking care of my apartment and dog.


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I first find new customers. Then I follow up with a meet and greet. During the meet and greet, we become further acquainted. I explain the services I offer. We decide if we are a fit. Then, if we are, I present a contract with my business expectations, skills, responsibilities, rates and fees and any legalities that may apply. Then I have the customer fill out a contract detailing what they expect of me, instructions on care of pets and homes, vet and emergency information, and any special instructions not covered in the above information. I then follow up on dates and times of sits, including open communication at least three days prior to the schedualed sits. I also keep the customer informed with texts and photos each day the customer is away.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been house sitting and dog walking since 2014.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

$45 a day for house sitting and one pet. Any extra pets, $5 each.
