Client Testimonials

  • "Alicia Obando at Pitter Patter Parenting is an incredibly compassionate and caring individual. She has been helping me with my cat for more than a year now. I travel a lot for my job and can be away from home for days at a time. She is very responsive to all of my cat's needs and great at providing updates/photos from each visit. I have been truly impressed with her high quality of care for my cat and professionalism. I get real comfort in knowing Alicia is there to take care of my fur baby, when I am not. I highly and happily recommend Alicia Obando at Pitter Patter Parenting!" - Katherine S.

  • "Alicia came highly recommended by a good family friend and I was glad because, initially, I didn't quite appreciate what her services would do for us off the bat. We thought we were looking for puppy training but we soon realized there were many other critical gaps in our own education on how to best raise our puppy. He is well tempered and causes very few problems so why would we need someone to tell us more about crating or potty training etc? Alicia not only pinpointed areas of improvement like providing more mental stimulation (we thought the dog park was good enough!) but also showed us the best bargains on neutering, micro chipping, toys, and supplies. We spent $125 on 2 sessions but saved over $400 immediately with her advice! 
    Very thorough, easy to schedule, and engaging! Would highly recommend."

  • "I have an older, diabetic cat (13yo DSH) that require/s daily insulin shots, so I was very selective with pet sitting services when I moved to Chicago more than 1.5 years ago. I reached out to a few different providers before finding Alicia Obando at Pitter Patter Parenting, who came recommended from and other pet sitters. Alicia is a reliable and compassionate caregiver with reasonable rates, and I appreciate how communicative she is with scheduling and post-visit updates. I have complete trust that my furry friend is in great hands while I'm out of town." - Angie T.

Alicia has a wealth of knowledge about animals too and offers amazing classes for the family. All in all you can't go wrong in hiring Pitter Patter Parenting for anything pet related. You won't be disappointed!" - Laura F. 

  • "We found Alicia through one of the dog and baby counseling classes she was holding at a local doggy daycare. The class was informative and had relevant tips that we could implement right away to get our lab mix comfortable with the new baby. We were also in the process of moving and could not find a walker. Luckily, Alicia saved the day and our pup, Daisy absolutely adores her. Alicia sends daily texts, photos, and videos. Alicia also reinforces all of the commands that we've been working on with our pup." - Karen N.

  • "I'm so glad I found Alicia. She walks my dog four days a week and boards her when I travel. I knew it was a good sign when she came over for the initial meet and greet, the first thing she did was plop down on the floor to play with my dog. It was clear that she's very comfortable with dogs, and loves them! Alicia has been very understanding about accidents and helping with medications. She also tells me about training exercises she practices with my dog, a nice bonus service! Overall, Alicia is a reliable caregiver with a great history of working with animals professionally. I trust her and recommend her services." - Briana C.
