Chicago’s customizable option for pet sitting.

Heading out of town? Julia provides non-overnight petsitting, hourly pet sitting, in-home house sitting, and cat care to her customers, seven days a week. She will stick to your pet’s routine as best she can and promises to send lots of updates so you know your best friend is in good hands while you’re away.

Pets cope better with their parents’ absence when left in a familiar place, attended by a familiar face. That’s why Julia Rohan offers an alternative to kennel boarding or doggy daycare. With Julia, your pet can get the one-on-one care they need, all from a fully trained Chicago pet sitter. And for your peace of mind, we’ll send you photographs to show the fun time we’re having!

Julia will help you customize our vacation care services to match your pet’s specific needs. Her service is especially popular for folks taking a day trip out of town, attending a sporting event or concert, getting home late from a wedding or celebration, “solo parenting” their pet while their spouse travels for business, and for folks wanting to provide pets with extra attention while they’re recovering from surgery or illness. She’s also happy to stay the night if you’re traveling for an extended amount of time.

Every vacation care visit consists of:

  • Feeding and refreshing the water
  • Giving medication
  • Walking or letting out the dog
  • Cleaning litter
  • Playing, petting, treating
  • Sending an update to the owner
  • Securing the home before heading out

Julia can FaceTime you, pick up your mail or delivered packages, water the plants, rotate lights, open and close the blinds, or anything else you can think of (don’t take advantage of her, please!) so your dog isn’t the only one who feels like you’re home.

There is then a sliding scale the final day when you arrive home depending on how long you need her to stay before you arrive back home. Check-in is by 4 pm and check-out is usually by 10 am, for your planning.

Tail Wags & Happy Parents

Rover-Time has made it so easy for us to have a dog even though we work full-time. We love working with our primary walker but you're also great about providing back-up whenever it's needed. And you've also been a wonderful source of reliable, excellent dog-sitters when we go away. You're easily, far and away, our favorite among businesses with whom we work! Thank you!!!!
