I recently used this service for our two cats and it was a wonderful experience. I’m not a big fan of giving out keys to my house, but within a few minutes of meeting Melissa for the upfront consultation I knew our home and cats would be in good hands. I appreciated the courtesy text after the first visit to let us know the cats were doing fine and everything cat-related was spotless when I returned. I was pleasantly surprised that we needed to complete several forms prior to the consultation and thought it was great to have detailed expectations for sitting services and pet habits, vet info, emergency instructions, etc. clearly documented. Melissa gave us peace of mind during our trip and it’s awesome to have a professional and passionate sitter in the neighborhood as an alternative to asking friends and family to care for our pets.
We have been using Northbrook Pet Nannies for over a year and Melissa provides excellent services in our home. We have a Bernese Mountain Dog and a French Bulldog – who are obviously very different in terms of both personality and their needs. This past 8 nights, one of her employees Jim stayed overnight in our home with the dogs. He texted me to let me know how things were going regularly and he seemed to genuinely love spending time with the dogs. Our Berner can be stubborn so I typically tell the dog sitters not to walk her, but Jim took both of them on walks daily in order to keep them out of the messy yard. We returned home to 2 calm dogs, without any issues! We joked that the house looks cleaner than when we left – he definitely took care of cleaning up after the messy dogs (which I don’t usually expect!) Melissa is great in responding for last minute visits if we are out unexpectedly and now we feel that when it’s time for vacation, we can go again without worrying about the dogs!
We love Northbrook Pet Nannies! Melissa is a wonderful person, and they love our dog Izzy. They are the most trustworthy and dependable people imaginable. At first meeting, you’ll be struck by their warmth, kindness, and re-assurance. We were afraid to leave our new doggie when we went out of town, but they called us with updates and provided her with the best care. After trying a few different kennels, we are most happy and confident with Northbrook Pet Nannies. Give them a try, you’ll be thrilled (and your pet will be too!)
When my wife and I moved to Northbrook, we drove with our dog. Two weeks later we had to go back to our old house to close, and our relative became unable to watch our dog for the weekend. Enter Northbrook Pet Nannies. So much easier that kenneling. Our dog was able to stay in our house, not in some cage. Additionally, someone came by 3 times a day to walk her, check her water, play with her, etc… I would and have recommended Northbrook Pet Nannies to others, much better alternative to kenneling
I have used them since they started and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! They treat my dog just like their own and give her all of the love, exercise and care you can imagine! You can count on them to be honest, fair, accountable and accommodating to fit your every need! I highly recommend them!
