Walk the Dog.

Wait, wasn’t that an old yo-yo trick?  No tricks here, just common sense.  Your dog should be walked on an almost daily basis, and intellectually you know that.  The benefits of a canine walk not only benefits their physical well-being, but also staves off boredom which can lead to bad behavior such as chewing.  So…walk off that excess energy!

How often should a dog be walked?  Well, it depends on the breed somewhat.  As a general rule it would be nice if your dog could take a brisk walk twice a day for 15 minutes at a time.  You say, hey I have to work all day and come home to a household that needs looking after.  What do I do about my four-legged child’s welfare?

Voila…enter Critter Sitters!  We walk dogs and provide many other pet care services.  Find out what a difference that extra walk per day could mean for your best friend.  Please contact me…Sandy Hafenbrack to get all of the details.  We invite you to visit our website at for more details.  That phone number is (630) 844-9554.

Home is Where the Heart is.

This is true for two-legged creatures and four-legged ones as well.  When your pet is removed from its natural environment for an extended period it can be traumatic.  Is he or she too fearful and socially unpredictable in a foreign environment and would be better off at home?  It is a very important question to ask!

So, why in-home pet sitting?  Because the pets are in their own comfortable space and have the amenities necessary for stress relief.  They can’t tell you that verbally, but many of us know how important familiarity is.  Another advantage is the protection of your home itself.  They can collect newspapers and mail to make your home look occupied.

When you add it all up doesn’t it just make sense to remove this from your “stress list” before you head out on summer vacation?  Call Critter Sitters serving Sugar Grove, Elburn, and the far Western Suburbs of Chicagoland.  Sandy and her team will make your pet feel right at home because that’s exactly where they are!  Give her a call today at (630) 844-9554.

Here Kitty, Kitty.

If that is a familiar sound in your home, then you may be contemplating what to do with your beloved feline when you go on vacation this summer.  We know that cats are not dogs and you may actually be thinking about either boarding them or leaving them home alone for a week.  You won’t do THAT will you?

Please don’t believe the things you may have read that cats can do just fine by staying home alone as long as you’ve filled up a mountain of food and a big bowl of water.  Just imagine the things that can go wrong!  There are things like medical emergencies and household mishaps that can occur during that very long period of time.

As Monty Python once joked “you wouldn’t want to come home to a dead cat!”.  This is merely our wake-up call to all of you cat fanciers in Sugar Grove, Elburn, and the far Western Suburbs of Chicagoland.  Your vacation plans should start with a call to Critter Sitters…the area’s premier pet sitting service.  Call Sandy at (630) 844-9554.

Help Wanted…Loves all of God’s Miracles.

It is easy to say, “I’m a dog lover, or I’m a cat lover, or I really love exotic birds”.  Is that really, really in your DNA?  Do you think of God’s creatures as miracles who bring joy to the two-legged people in their lives?  How committed are you to caring for someone else’s canine, feline, or feathered friend?

Sandy Hafenbrack of Critter Sitters is looking for a few extraordinary people to represent her company in the art of pet care.  That entails so many different things such as walking, feeding, playing, etc.  But, above all, it means loving that beautiful creature (big or small, young or old) as if it were your own!

If you live in Sugar Grove, Elburn, and the immediate area of far Western Suburban Chicago you might have what it takes to be a pet sitting professional working with the crew of Critter Sitters.  Please visit the website first, then call Sandy and discuss your future as a trusted pet sitter.  That phone number is (630) 844-9554.
