More than anything, your dog needs personal attention and you deserve peace of mind. Luckily, we can take care of both!

We’ll work with you to develop a Rover-Time custom plan for your dog and we will provide feedback from our professionally trained caregivers on their progress. If we see things that may need adjusting along the way, we’ll discuss it with you first to make sure we’re always on the same page. We want your dog to be as happy and content with us as you’ll be.

After all, the highest standards must be maintained when it comes to spoiling your dog!




Your dog’s in good hands. Rover-Time Dog Walking & Pet Sitting’s team is made of the best and most reliable dog walkers in Chicago. Take a peek at our amazing reviews on Yelp

Our team of awesome dog walkers receives professional training centered on compassionate care. Your dog will be treated only with kindness — and it’s our privilege to give this to them! We are lifelong animal lovers and owners who are truly dedicated to the welfare of the pups.

When we interview applicants we look for dog walkers who are experienced, knowledgeable, and passionate about dogs. We only select people we would trust in our homes with our pups. We take special care to make sure that they will give your dog their complete love and attention, and that they believe customer service is everything.

Before welcoming anyone to our team, we make sure they have gone through our vetting processes. Your dog is like your baby, and we make sure everyone coming into contact with them is trustworthy. We also check each potential dog walker’s references to make sure that others can vouch for their trustworthiness, work ethic, and customer service.

Once on board, each dog walker receives intense training to make sure Rover-Time’s standard of service is met while maintaining the highest level of quality and professionalism before, during, and after each visit.

And in the case of an accident, we carry Travelers Business Insurance that covers dog bites, veterinary care, property damage and loss.




Look, we just want to talk to you about how awesome your dog is and how much we love them! So we made it as easy as we could to handle all the business-y stuff online.

Once you’ve signed up, you can keep your account up to speed through our client portal and use nearly any form of payment.

We’ve made sure to keep our business small enough to maintain the charm of a boutique while balancing the convenience of a larger company.

It’s the best of both worlds!

Tail Wags & Happy Parents

Matt from Rover-Time cared for our (anxious) adult Standard Schnauzer twice in the past few months while we went out of town. Once for a longer over-night stay and once when we got into a travel pinch and he came to the rescue! Our Jackson is extremely nervous, but we came home and he was very calm. Matt even had to coordinate with a different family member because my husband and I were out of town and the transition from that family member to Matt was seamless. We were thousands of miles away and knew Jackson was in great hands. For the longer stay, Matt sent detailed daily reports both by text and we came home to a log about each of their walks and overnights. I have yet to find an over-night pet service in the city that can hold a handle to Julia and her team. I hope Matt can care for Jackson again in the future!
