Home Daycare for Dogs

Doggy daycare can be a huge help in meeting your dog’s needs for attention now that the kids are back in school.  So many of us have high energy 4-legged kids that are bored and lonely when we are away from home all day.  Since their concept of time is different it may seem like you have been gone for days instead of hours.

You have probably heard of or even passed by businesses that provide all day care for your pooches.  Not only can that be very expensive, but now you have taken them out of the environment in which they feel safe and secure.  Maybe they are receiving attention, but not the warm friendliness of a familiar face visiting their domain.

Here is the solution!  Critter Sitters serves the Fox Valley in Chicagoland.  Sandy will come to your home in THEIR comfortable environment and take care of their needs such as food, water, recreation and just plain lovin’.  They will come to eagerly anticipate her arrival each day as they do with you.  Call Sandy today at (630) 844-9554 or visit her on the web at

Tips for a Safer Fall Season for Your Pets.

Ah, Fall - there's nothing like crisp, cool air, the first months of school and luscious foliage to get you excited for the changing seasons. Your pet is probably welcoming the break from hot, sticky weather too!  But pet parents, beware—fall is also a time of lurking dangers for our furry friends.  Here are some tips to keep your pet safe and healthy over the coming months.

Rodent protection and removal often requires the use of pesticides that may be harmful to your pet.  If you must use these products, do so with extreme caution and put them in places inaccessible to your pets. 

Make sure that your children keep their school supplies away from curious pets.  Ingesting things like glue sticks, pens, and magic markers can be harmful to any creature’s digestive system.

Fall and spring and are mushroom seasons. While 99% of mushrooms have little or no toxicity, the 1% that are highly toxic can cause life-threatening problems in pets.

Autumn is the season when snakes who are preparing for hibernation may be particularly “grumpy,” increasing the possibility of severe bites to those unlucky pups who find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Just a few tips for a healthier, safer 4-legged companion this fall from your friends at Critter Sitters.  We serve your pet sitting needs and more throughout the Fox Valley here in Chicagoland.  Call Sandy at (630) 844-9554 or visit us on the web at
