ABOUT BRONZEVILLE PETSITTERS

Hi there! I'm Diane Robinson, owner and operator of Bronzeville Petsitters.  I"m a bonded and insured, professional pet sitter using the latest technology to ensure that your pet is receiving the services and time that you request.

My experience in pet sitting began over 15 years ago as I was always the "go-to pet sitter" for family, friends, and neighbors.  In 2018, I launched Bronzeville Petsitters so I could bring this essential service to my neighbors in Bronzeville, Hyde Park, Woodlawn, the South Loop, and beyond!

I'm friendly, customer-service oriented, and reliable.  I specialize in new puppies, senior cats and dogs, as well as exotics. As the pet parent of a 135 pd. Mastiff and a cat myself, I understand the dilemmas we can face when we need help with our furry friends, so I'm there for them when you can't be!   I'm also  pretty flexible, so if you have any special circumstances or needs, feel free to inquire! 

Personal references can be provided upon request.  I'm also a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) as well as an active member of the 4 Paws Parks Committee, a 501(c)(3) organization overseeing the 4th Ward's first two official dog parks.

A FEW POLICIES

In order to ensure a positive experience for all the members in my pack, I have a few policies in place to make sure things run as smooth as possible:

  1. Billing for services ends each week on Sunday.  Payment methods that are stored on the Scout app will be billed the following Monday.  

  2. If you need to cancel an appointment, please feel free to do so.  All ​I ask is that if it is on short notice, please try and cancel within 15 mins. of the appointment, otherwise there will be an automatic $5.00 cancellation fee. 

  3. ​Accidents do happen sometimes and there could be an occasion when I arrive at your home to walk your dog and they've had an accident in the home because they had become sick.  These types of accidents can be pretty messy and may require more than a pickup and a wiping up.  These situations have caused scheduling problems in the past and ends up being a time-consuming cleaning job that affects the rest of the day, In the event an accident  requires more than 5 minutes and requires a cleaning bucket  and supplies, I have established the following procedure:

You will be notified with the details of the incident along with photos.  You'll have the option of paying a cleaning fee of $25.00 per hour that will be charged in 15-minute increments at $6.25 each.  If you choose to use another alternative for the cleanup, either way I will certainly make sure the pooch is cleaned up and will secure it per your instructions.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to inquire about it.
