Read reviews of Pekin, IL dog sitters
Leaving for the Holidays can be stressful but TeJayy kept in contact daily, sent updates and videos so it was a bearable time that could have been unbearable. I thank you for the bottom of my heart.
They were so patient and great with him! I loved their report card and I will DEFINITELY be making them a preferred caregiver
Awesome Walker! Our Doberman came home tired & happy win/win. TeJayy was well prepared to manage and walk a big pup. FIVE STARS!
