Hi there! My name is Diane Robinson and I own & operate Bronzeville Petsitters. I'm excited to offer dog walking, cat sitting, new puppy check ins, & overnight sitting to my neighbors in Bronzeville, Hyde Park, the South Loop, West Loop, Downtown Chicago, Pilsen, and more!
Having always been the go-to"pet sitter" for family and friends over the years, I began to like the idea of becoming a professional pet sitter in 2012, with the ultimate goal being to one day open a full service pet center in the neighborhood. Being a 20-year resident of Bronzeville, during that time, the neighborhood & city were really beginning to experience a lot of growth, but there were limited pet care places in the Bronzeville/Hyde Park area. I was busy with another career at the time but I'm now offering my services to pet parents full time!
I've always been a lover of and advocate for animals, and being the pet parent of a 135 pd. Mastiff and a cat, I do understand the dilemmas we face when we need help with our kids! That's why I want to give pet owners the assurance that their pets are being cared for when they aren't available.
Also, besides being customer service oriented, trustworthy, and reliable, I'm also flexible, so if you have any special circumstances, let's talk about it!
I provide confidence and convenience with my user-friendly app service. Each service provides photo(s), a report card, and a GPS map. You can also conveniently request services, send a message, and pay using debit, credit, or PayPal; all on one platform.
I'm fully bonded and insured and will be happy to provide personal references upon request. I'm also a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) and an active member of the 4 Paws Parks Committee, a 501(c)(3) organization overseeing the 4th Ward's first two official dog parks. Please check out my budget-friendly pricing!
