House & Pet Sitting in Chicago

House and Pet Sitting in Chicago, Illinois - a fantastic, free alternative to dog boarding. The picture is Cloud Gate, Millenium Park

Chicago is a truly great city, of truly friendly Midwesterners and truly cold winters. Stunning skyscrapers, city beaches and over 5500 restaurants covering every conceivable cuisine are just some of the features of this concrete and glass oasis rising from the shores of Lake Michigan.

Take in a Cubs game at the iconic Wrigley Field, and immerse yourself in the atmosphere and traditions that are, frankly, more important than the game. Wander through Millennium Park and enjoy "The Bean" and the famous water fountain. Or get a firm grip on your wallet and stroll the Magnificent Mile - a strip full of high end fashion and uber-expensive branded stores.

Don't miss out on Garrett's Cheese and Caramel popcorn, or Chicago style pizza. Take in the iconic jazz and comedy venues, or experience the world class art galleries and entertainment offerings year 'round.

House and Pet Sitting in Chicago

House sitting is a great way to experience Chicago, and discover just a little of what makes this great place tick. Just remember to take an extra scarf or two - or ten - it gets REALLY cold!

House and Pet Sitting jobs in Chicago

*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
