Lazy Brown Dog
Special needs dogs ◆ Trusted overnight care ◆ Professional trainer's home 

Leaving your dog when vacationing can be so worrisome. I feel your pain, I've been there. When a dog has unique needs, having limited options makes traveling even harder. Dogs with special needs deserve stress-free vacations too. That's why I offer overnight care for senior dogs, fearful or shy dogs, reactive dogs, dogs who need a quiet home, and dogs with other special needs.

Your dog will be a VIP guest in my home and be treated like royalty. Although training is not part of VIP Boarding, being cared for by a professional trainer and behavior consultant can be tremendously beneficial for dogs with special needs. Cuddles are unlimited, training is not included.



Initial Consultation

After you complete the intake form below, I'll get in touch about booking an initial consultation at my home (located in 60646). This meeting is about 30-45 minutes. We will discuss your dog's unique needs in detail as your dog enjoys positive associations with me and my home. We will decide together if a stay would be a good fit, and if so, book the stay or a trial. 


Trial for Some Dogs

In some cases, a half-day or overnight trial ahead of the planned stay might be necessary to make extra sure your dog is comfortable with me and my home. We will determine together at the consultation whether a trial stay might make sense for your dog.


VIP Boarding

Your dog will live in my home, be treated like royalty, and have fun! Each stay includes memory foam dog beds, fuzzy blankets, couches, human beds, enrichment opportunities, play and games, peaceful walks, and unlimited cuddles and smooches. I'll upload photos for you to view, and we'll stay in touch by email.
