Fox Valley Dog Walkers and pet sitters

Fun for them.
Peace of mind for you.

Providing a happy, stress-free, and safe environment for your pets while you’re at work or away on vacation.

What drives us

Our mission

Looking for reliable Fox Valley dog walkers or sitters is no easy feat, especially when you’re busy. Our mission is to provide the safe haven you need during your full schedule so you have the peace of mind knowing your pet is cared for and, of course, having fun at the same time!

Building strong, trusting relationships with our clients is a top priority with Simply Pets. Through the use of our online mobile app, we keep in touch via messages and visit journals so you’re always in the loop with how your pet is doing while in our care.

Think of it this way. We offer the convenience and reliability of a larger pet care company but we keep our team small to ensure a personal, family-oriented experience that you and your pet deserve from a pet care provider. Because Simply Pets clients are family!

Josie the owner is amazing, she is such a great dog sitter/person. We are truly happy with her. Makes us having to leave our dogs less stressful because of her!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Josie and her team. My Cooper has been sick and Josie has been so amazing about communicating every detail of her visits. It’s super important to me to have a reliable, communicative, and trustworthy dog walker. I have found that with Simply Pets! Thank you!
