Services to keep your dog happy when you are away!

A Cuddle Above

Woodridge, IL.

Lori Wrzesinski, Owner

​Dogs love to move.   Your dog needs to get out and about, sniffing those bushes and stretching those legs while you work to earn their kibble.  Whether they are smallest of toy breeds to the largest of the Great Danes, all dogs benefit from having one-on-one time.   You might have a dog who is getting up there in years.  Maybe you have a young pup with lots of energy.  Getting them outdoors keeps them healthy and happy.  

When you use their professional dog walking service, your dog is provided with a special routine while you are at work.  Clients who begin dog walking or potty break services report finding their dogs much more relaxed when they get home. 

A Cuddle Above also offers an overnight Dog Sitting Service. During overnight pet sitting visits they will:

  • Be in your home from approximately 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. (time determined at initial consult)
  • Return for a midday visit between 11:00 a.m.  and 3:00 p.m. An additional midday visit is available.
  • Exercise and feed according to your directions
  • Refill water
  • Administer any medication as directed
  • Bring in your mail/packages

Amanda Kania, Owner

Out-U-Go! dog walking service is provided by their professional dog walkers who are graduates of the Out-U-Go! Dog Walking certification program, otherwise known as Dog Walk U. Dog walking is an excellent alternative to dog day care.  All visits are customized to you and your furry family’s schedule and needs.

Each visit is a personalized experience for U and your pup.  The friendly humans at Out-U-Go! provide flexible scheduling on short notice, making your visits easy to add or cancel.  No need to worry about Fido while you are at work. OUG! provides low stress high love care during your busy times.

Dog sitting consists of one or multiple visits a day by Out-U-Go! pet sitters to the homes of pet parents. Dog sitting includes walking, feeding, and general care for all vacation care needs. Awesome in-home care means no exposure to other dogs and their germs. All dogs are walked individually (no packs) for extra special care and attention. Your pooch is safe in his own home without the risk of injuries or bad habits learned from the less-savory canine types.  There is no pet drop-off or pick-up before your departure; walk out the door and head to the airport; walk into your home and return to your happy pooch! 

At the end of each visit, a personal note is left for you about your furry family member’s visit.
