A Lady Known as Beth.

It sounds like the beginning of a Victorian novel, but with apologies to the Bronte sisters, Beth is a lady who cares for your four-legged kids.  That alone makes her really special, doesn’t it?  Beth is one of the major reasons why hundreds of people living in the far western suburbs of Chicagoland choose Critter Sitters to care for their creatures great and small.

For the last year and a half Beth has devoted her time to making sure that YOUR 4-legged children get the best care possible.  Sandy (the owner) did not just choose her on a whim.  Beth was carefully vetted.  It started with the fact that Beth had been caring for animals for 40 years…not bad for a 29-year old!

She knows that your dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, fish, and little furry friends are a part of the family.  When you can, or must travel, or are absent during the day they need the same care that you would provide them.  That’s where Beth and the team from Critter Sitters comes in.  If you live in Southern Kane County please call (630) 844-9554.

Longevity = Special Needs.

In recent years, Baby Boomers and the greatest generation has been living longer than their predecessors.  The same is true for our beloved four-legged kids.  Nowadays, we can anticipate a double-digit lifespan for our dogs (depending on the size and breed, of course).  With that, comes an increased need for geriatric critter care.

How do you administer vaccine to your best friend?  Here are some P’s to follow –

1.  Pre-visit your vet to determine if the dog may be administered vaccine at home.
2.  Possible reactions that they have to particular vaccines.
3.  Proper schedule.
4.  Proper Administration…temperature, transportation of the medicine, etc.
5.  Preparing your buddy for the shot by carefully checking the area first.
6.  Perfect insertion and removal of the syringe

Isn’t it great to know that the professional dog sitters at Critter Sitters of Southern Kane County, Illinois have all of the skills necessary to keep your best friend happy and healthier for a good many years.  When you call Sandy or one of her team to come into your home you are trusting someone who cares about your dog almost as much as you do.  Please call today for an in-home visit at (630) 844-9554.

You’re Going to be Gone for HOW Long?

Most of the year if you leave home it is for a day or perhaps a weekend.  In the summer, you may be absent from your castle for weeks.  Vacation should not be stressful worrying what’s going on back at home!  Small animals which can be left safely for a day or two are in danger if left alone for weeks.

Your gerbil, rabbit, guinea pig, macaw, even your expensive fish need care if you are going to be gone for a couple of weeks.  And what about your home itself?  Shouldn’t someone be looking in on the household periodically to insure safety and security?  You know the answer to that…of course they should!

If you live anywhere around southern Kane County in Chicagoland you can trust one of the best pet and house sitters in the land.  Sandy, or someone on her trusted team will look in on your home and your little critters while you relax worry-free hundreds of miles away.  Call Sandy today to arrange an initial visit at (630) 844-9554.

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.
