Holiday Vacation Time…What about your Pets?

If you are piling into your car to go to Grandma’s for a holiday visit, chances are you will be gone for several days.  This is especially true since Christmas falls on a Monday.  Surely, you have made arrangements for the care and feeding of your four-legged children while you are gone.  If not, it is high time that you did!

There are simple things such as regular visits from caring, loving humans.  Then there may be some complicated matters such as the administration of medicine and other life-saving materials that we routinely give our pets.  When you hire the right pet sitting service your peace of mind is immeasurable.

Those of us who live in the far western suburbs of Sugar Grove, Elburn and the surrounding area have learned over the last 25 years to count on Sandy.  Sandy Hafenbrack is the owner of Critter Sitters.  She and her amazing team will take care of your pets as if they were their own.  Time is of the essence.  Call Sandy today at (630) 844-9554.

With More Life comes More Challenges.

Just as human longevity has dramatically increased our wonderful four-legged children are living longer too.  For the most part, that is wonderful and we are truly blessed!  With longevity comes challenges.  Just as humans often need special care in their senior years so might our dog or cat or other beloved pet.

There are things that need to be done to enhance the quality of life in these golden months and years.  Such things as insulin shots, pill taking for recalcitrant pets, and administration of subcutaneous fluids.  Are you equipped for that?  It can be incredibly frustrating and stressful trying to administer these life-prolonging supplements.

You may have heard of Critter Sitters.  They are known throughout the Sugar Grove and Elburn area as premier dog-walking and pet care professionals.  Critter Sitters is also whom to call when your pet has special needs.  Visit their website at then call Sandy for more information at (630) 844-9554.

Dogs are Not Bears.

Well no duh!  Your four-legged canine best friend is not going into hibernation for the next several months.  They need fresh air and exercise now more than ever as the seasons change and the snow begins to fly.  They need potty breaks, walks, and exercise in the winter instead of being confined in your home all day.

Do you want to go out in the Suburban Chicago winter weather to walk your dog every day?  For many of us it is just not practical to do so.  You should be looking into hiring a professional dog walking service.  Hire someone who is hearty and more than willing to walk your pooch on some of our winter days.

The answer to your dilemma is found at Critter Sitters.  Visit the website and see the gallery of beautiful creatures that Sandy Hafenbrack and her loving staff take care of year around.  They serve the entire Sugar Grove and Elburn area with special dog walking services.  Call for an in-home visit today at (630) 844-9554.

What’s Julia Cooking Up?

A love for all creatures great and small…that’s what!  Julia lives in Sugar Grove, IL with her sons, her husband, and naturally her four-legged child Olivia who is the family dog.  Julia grew up in rural Indiana and her life has been surrounded by many of God’s beautiful animals.  She would be lost without the love of pets in her life.

Julia is one of the pet-sitting professionals who works with Sandy Hafenbrack, the owner of Critter Sitters Pet Sitting Service.  It doesn’t get any better than having a loving, caring mom sit with your 4-legged kids and care for them while you are at work or perhaps gone for a short period of time on vacation, etc.

Critter Sitters Pet Sitting Service has been around for many years now, serving the needs of Sugar Grove, Elburn and the growing area that IS the far west suburbs of Chicago.  Many people think that they can leave their pets all day while they drive toward the city to go to work.  Why not strongly consider the alternative and call Sandy at (630) 844-9554.

Elizabeth…The Queen of Pet Sitters.

Liz, as she is known, is one of the amazing pet care professionals employed by Sandy Hafenbrack of Critter Sitters Pet Sitting Service.  If you hear her mention the names Izzy and Bailey Jane she is just talking about her kids.  They are two marvelous felines who share her home and her life.

When it comes to pedigrees Liz has quite an impressive one herself.  At one time, she managed the Chicago Marathon for PAWS.  If you have not heard of it we are referring to Chicago’s largest no kill animal shelter!  She has spent her life loving all creatures great and small.  She will share her love of animals anytime you ask.

Liz is one of the truly caring pet sitters whom Sandy trusts implicitly to treat your beloved four-legged child with the same care and attention you do.  When you go to work each day or perhaps on vacation turn to Critter Sitters Pet Sitting Service attending to pets throughout Sugar Grove, Elburn, and the surrounding area.  Just call Sandy anytime at (630) 844-9554.

Jack (the dog) and Jill Went up the Hill.

I don’t know if they ended up fetching a pail of water, but I DO know that Jack got a good workout and stayed fit and happy.  How?  Because Jill is one of the trained professional pet sitters who works for Sandy Hafenbrack at Critter Sitters Pet Sitting Service caring for your pet in the far west suburbs of Chicagoland.

Jill has cared for furry creatures both great and small throughout her entire life.  Her pet sitting expertise includes dogs, cats, birds, fish, and yes…even pet pigs!  Oh yeah, a Vietnamese pig needs plenty of TLC when its mom and dad are away from home.  Jill lives in Sugar Grove and you can trust her implicitly with your four-legged child.

Most people think of pet sitting service as a once in a while need.  How about every single day when the household is empty while everyone works and is in school?  Critter Sitters Pet Sitting Service covers Sugar Grove, Elburn, and the surrounding area every day with their caring and loving attention to your pets.  Call Sandy today at (630) 844-9554.

The Human side of Pet Sitting.

Our beloved four-legged child does not take care of him or herself.  The human touch is what makes having a pet the fulfilling part of life that it experiences.  When you can’t be there to love on and exercise your best friend you need someone who cares as much as you do about their well-being.

Meet Beth…she has been an integral part of Critter Sitters Pet Sitting Service since the beginning of 2017.  She has been caring for creatures great and small for more than four decades.  She knows that your pet IS one of your children.  And it only begins with dogs.  She is also experienced with cats, rabbits, birds, fish, lizards and all small rodents.

When you need someone to look in on and exercise your four-legged family member (especially daily) call Sandy at Critter Sitters.  She will arrange for Beth or another of her experienced staff to come out and meet with you.  Critter Sitters Pet Sitting Service serves Sugar Grove, Elburn, and the surrounding area with the best pet sitting on earth.  Call today at (630) 844-9554.
