Andrea has been wonderful with my 1.5 yr old lab Buehrle. When we first got Buehrle as a 8-week old pup, I searched everywhere for a dog walker for him that was reasonably priced. We found A Bark and A Meow and it as been the best thing ever! She loves Buehrle and more importantly Buehrle loves her! We first did puppy walks, then graduated to once a day walks, and now we also do doggie daycare. Buehrle also has boarded with her. I was worried about leaving him, but with Andrea I knew he was in great hands. She always calls and texts me to let me know how he is and if he is being good. [He sometimes can be sneaky! ] We couldn't be happier and would highly recommend her!

I have a vey elderly cat (20+ years) with health issues. The first time I needed a sitter was an emergency and Andrea stepped in to care for Skeeter on a moments notice with no qualms. The care was excellent and I think Skeeter, whom I normally boarded at a kennel, was relaxed and happier than any other time I had left her. Now, Andrea arrives every weekday afternoon to provide her with her midday feeding. Recently, we went through a round of behavioral issues. Andrea went the extra mile, did some research, and recommended some strategies which are working to correct the issues. A Bark and a Meow provides a level of service and care that I would recommend to anyone who needs a great person to care for their pet.

Andrea's been walking my choc lab mix since she was 8 weeks old and the pup and I couldn't have been happier. She leaves notes daily and will send me a text filling me in on the day. Every now and then I have to work late and Andrea is always willing to come on a minutes notice to feed and let my dog out in the evening. I would recommend this service to anyone!

I searched high and low for a reasonably priced dog sitter to watch my dog for two weeks while I was away on business. I have a whippet and he is very neurotic (10 years old, very set in his ways and doesn't like to be away from me or from home) and he can't be boarded; we had a couple of bad experiences in the past. I found A Bark and A Meow and Andrea was so helpful! Every day she wrote notes about her visits, she sent text messages daily and called every other day to let me know how Sergeant was doing. I felt very comfortable with her, and when I got home Sergeant was in great shape! He was happy in his home while I was gone and I was relieved that I finally found someone who I can trust to take care of him if I have to go away. I would strongly recommend Andrea to anyone looking for pet sitting or walking - she is great!!

When I adopted a shelter puppy a year and half ago. I called many of the "big" dog walking services. Many did not work in the Rogers Park area or did not return my phone calls in a timely manner. I called a Bark and Meow and Andrea was so wonderful. She did 2 puppy walks a day and my baby was potty trained in 2 weeks. She also boards at her home and treats my dog like one of her own. She also is doing daycare in her home which until I lost my job I was doing because I would pick up my dog and she would be soo tired from playing. I like that she is a smaller operation and I know she cares about all her clients.

Andrea was referred to us by our neighbor in the same building and we were so lucky to stumble upon her. She walks our 11 year old shelter dog once a day, has taken her for a number of overnights, given her massages when her legs ache, and checked up on us (the humans) when we were home sick or ailing. She is like a member of the family. We are expecting a new member of the family (baby due in Oct.), and she has been so supportive in helping Teedie adjust and is "on call" for when labor begins and we have to head to the hospital. One of the greatest perks about A Bark and Meow is Andrea picks the dog up and drops her off when we board her at her home. We never have to worry about closing times, or late flights, because we know Andres is taking good care of her. I could not recommend a dog walker, border or general care taker more. Hope you enjoy A Bark and Meow as much as we have!

Very reasonable, very reliable, and very, very loving to your furry friends! I have recommended this company to several friends. Andrea is always around when we need her, even on the shortest notice! I don't know what we'd do without her!

A Bark and a Meow is an extremely reliable and invaluable pet service. I can not say enough about how professional and and caring Andrea is for my dog and diabetic cat. She is fabulous about last minute arrangements, flexibility with scheduling, etc. I feeling totally comforted when my animals are in her care, as she provides constant updates and detail notes of each visit. Not having any family in the state, I am so grateful for Andrea's services!!

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your watching Max for us while we were in Chicago. You were awesome and we definitely would call upon you again whenever we return to Chicago. I especially appreciated your flexibility when I had to change the days due to my "Flaming Lip", cold sore problem. I hope your ear infection has cleared up as well. That vertigo business is nasty. I don't know how you were able to dog sit, but again, I can't thank you enough. Katie, Doug and Max.

I am a relatively new cat owner so at first I was somewhat hesitant to trust anyone else to care for my cat but Andrea is so good with my cat and she is really great at understanding my cat's needs. A Bark and a Meow is reliable and dependable. I have never been disappointed with the care you've provided! Thanks!
