I am a former public school administrator and currently a part-time ESL teacher, translator, and destination consultant. I
live in a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath apt in Skokie, about 10 miles (16km) from the center of Chicago. This is a quiet suburb with a grocery stories, restaurants, shopping and a bike/walking path/sculpture park very close by. I am also 10 min (by car) to the beach in Evanston and the Northwestern University campus.
My dog does need daily exercise to stay healthy and happy. I do not have a backyard however there is a open area dog park within walking distance. He will need to be taken out 3 times daily (for walks on leash or to the park). There is some flexibility in the schedule to allow you to go out and discover the awesome city of Chicago! I will be happy to provide suggestions about places to visit and things to do.
I am leaving on Aug 31, so you will have to arrive at least one day prior. You are welcome to stay in my home additional days before and after dog sitting if you wish.
I undertand this is a "last minute post" but unfortunately, a sitter just canceled her plans so I am hoping that someone might be available on short notice.
