Protect Your Pet from Heatstroke This Summer.

We have all heard it over and over…never, never, never leave a pet in a hot car.  Sometimes people think, 'Oh well, it just rained I will crack the window' or 'It isn’t THAT hot out there. I could sit in the car if I had to'.  Every year dogs suffer and die when their guardians make the mistake of leaving them in a parked car - even for “just a minute” while they run an errand.  Do you want to have that on your conscience for the rest of your life?

Parked cars are deathtraps for dogs.  On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can soar to between 100 and 120 degrees in just minutes, and on a 90-degree day, the interior temperature can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes.  Animals can sustain brain damage or even die from heatstroke in just 15 minutes.  The heat is extra tough on dogs because they can only cool themselves by panting and by sweating through their paw pads.

Critter Sitters, serving the Fox Valley and the far western suburbs of Chicagoland, does not want anything to happen to your 4-legged child this summer.  While Chicago summers can have days of moderation, even temperatures in the mid-70’s could prove fatal for your dog if left in a parked car.  When you need the best pet care available in Chicagoland any time of the year call Critter Sitters at (630) 844-9554 or visit them on the web at

Happy Summer Vacation!

It is time to hit the road with the family on that special summer getaway that you may have been planning for months or even years.  Before you hit the road, your checklist of things to do must include how your home is taken care of, and that includes making sure everything in and around it is safe while you are gone.  We sometimes put off travel indefinitely because we don’t trust anyone to take care of our pets and home while we are away.

If you live in the Fox Valley of Chicagoland put your worries to rest.  Your friends at Critter Sitters of Montgomery have everything under control.  In addition to taking excellent care of your four-legged kids, Critter Sitters will be happy to take care of a few household chores while you are away.  They will bring your mail and newspapers indoors if you wish.  They will also water your indoor and outdoor plants and take out the trash.

So stop worrying and hit the road.  Critter Sitters is known throughout the western suburbs for their expert pet care.  Everyone has come to know that when you need a variety of pet care services you give Critter Sitters a call.  Visit them on the web at or call them at (630) 844-9554 and have a great and safe summer!

How to Hire a Pet Sitter.

After your own flesh and blood what is the next most precious thing in your life.  Most likely it is your 4-legged children.  Your pets are as important to your daily well-being as you are to theirs.  So when you must be away from home for any length of time you should hire a licensed qualified pet sitter.  A loving, caring pet sitter cares about your pets almost as much as you do.  They do much more than just feed and water your kids while you are away.

Your Pet Gets:
-The environment they know best.
-Their regular diet and routine. 
-Relief from traveling to and staying in an unfamiliar place with other animals (such as a boarding kennel). 
-Attention while you're away.

You Get:
-Happier friends and neighbors, who aren't burdened with caring for your pet.
-The peace of mind that comes from knowing that your pet is being cared for by a professional.
-Someone to bring in your newspaper and mail so potential burglars don't know you're away. 
-Someone who will come to your home so you don't have to drive your pet to a boarding kennel.
