Susan took care of our 2 dogs while we were away for a week. Dexter is a big dog who is a jumper and has a special diet and medication needs, Susan had no problems with any of that. Dexter instantly took a liking to Susan and we knew she would be a great fit! Our pets were well taken care of and I didn't have to worry about a thing. We are relieved to know that when we go out of town, our babies are well taken care of!

The fact that the same person is visiting my home and pets is very important to me. I like the fact that building a relationship with my dog is important to them as well.

Susan has gone above and beyond what I would expect from a pet sitter.  She is more like a family friend.

We don't get to travel very much with four kids, but when we do, we only trust 4PAWS to care for our "fifth kid".

I love when Susan comes through the door.  I grab my frisbee and out we go!!  Once she leaves, I'm tired enough to nap until mom and dad get home from work.

4PAWS allowed us to get a new puppy even with the long hours we work. We worked as a team to get him trained in no time.  It was great!

Unbelievable! I never used a pet sitter before.  My dog was soooo happy when I got home from vacation.

Susan really saved us when my husband was rushed to the hospital.  Thanks for everything you do for us!!!!!

My Mom and Dad go to this place called "work". I miss them and I don't like being alone. The best part of the day is when Miss Susan comes and rescues me from the Kennel. I get to go for a walk and we play a little bit. If I'm a real good dog, I get a treat. (Sometimes even when I'm not so good) I like Miss Susan.
- Beemer, 12 year old dachshund, South Elgin
My pups were happy and content when we came home for vacation.  What else can I ask for?? Little Muppet usually destroys something.....not this time!  THANK YOU!!!
