Illinois, Round Lake
Introduction

Hi, I’m Christina Giese, owner of Snaggle Foot Round Lake.

I spent much of my adult life building a family in Fond du Lac, WI. During those years I worked in various careers in insurance, retail, and service industries. I’ve been part-owner of a tavern and owned several rental properties during my years in Wisconsin.

Services List

Rates: Starting at $20.50/per dog walk for 1 dog (each additional pet is $3.50)

Have a schedule or situation that leaves your dog home alone too long? We provide our dog walking service for a variety of clients in an assortment of situations.

For example, we’ve worked with clients who:

  • Have an energetic or young dog that needs more exercise
  • Are physically unable to walk their dog, such as after an injury or while sick
  • Work long hours and have a dog that could use a mid-day break
  • Are trying to sell their home and need someone on-call who can occupy their dog while the house is being shown

Our Snaggle Foot Pet Care Specialists are more than happy to work out a visit schedule that meets your needs. We can come by any day of the week. Most of the time, we just need a few days’ notice in order to fit you into our schedule. We know how busy things can be and we try to be as accommodating as possible.

Typically, our dog walking service is provided mid-day, when dogs need to be let out the most. Each standard dog walking visit consists of a 20-30 minute walk. Every visit comes with a water refresh, playtime, and a treat.

Dog walks requested for Saturday or Sunday: an additional $5.00 will be added to the visit price (72 hour notice REQUIRED to add visits to a Saturday or Sunday).

Rates: Starting at $21.00/visit for cats, $24.50 per visit for dogs (One Pet)
Additional pets: $3.50
Difficult, willful, or hyperactive pets start at an additional $3.00

While you’re traveling, let Snaggle Foot come to your home to care for your pets as an alternative to kenneling or boarding. Because we know that some pets do better without the noise and confusion of a facility. So why not let us come to your home and care for your pets where you know that they’ll be happy and comfortable!

Our most popular pets are cats and dogs, but we’ve also provided pet sitting services for other household and exotic pets such as parrots, rabbits, caged rodents, and reptiles.

A typical pet sitting visit consists of:

  • Exercise or playtime with your pets
  • Feeding, water refresh, treats
  • Specialized one-on-one attention.
  • And of course, we will always make sure your home is left safe and secure and your pets are happy and healthy.

Our service offerings are beneficial to pets and pet owners alike! For instance:

  • Pets get to stay in their own, familiar environment. Your pets experience no additional stress when you travel.
  • Your pets maintain their regular feeding and exercise schedules, and they get to sleep in the comfort of their own beds.
  • You feel safe and secure knowing that we are watching over your home while you are traveling.
  • We can bring in the mail, alternate the lights, water your plants, and take care of other home maintenance issues.

Rates: Starting at $16.50/visit

We know that often times the dogs that need the most care are those who are new puppies. We began offering a puppy because we would continually receive requests from clients whose dogs didn’t necessarily need a full walk, but just a quick break outside during the day.

This service is ideal for clients who:

  • Have just gotten a new puppy and are working on housebreaking.

Unlike our traditional dog walking service, our puppy breaks last only 15-20 minutes– just long enough to get you dog outside for a quick break, water refresh and treat included.

And just like our dog walking service, your puppy will get the special care they deserve.

Rates: Starting at $80.00/night with $10.00 for each additional pet.

Are your pets used to constant attention? We can definitely accommodate!

Our overnight sitting service allows us to “move-in” to give your pets the continual one-on-one attention that they are used to.

Inherent with the service is the peace of mind that your home is cared for and looked after by an insured professional.

This service is ideal for clients who:

  • Have just gotten a new puppy and are working on housebreaking.
  • Have a dog who is on a medication.
  • Are owners of a senior dog who may need to go outside more often.
  • Individuals who would like someone staying at their home at night while they are away.

Additional 15-minute pet check-ins are available at $12 (1 pet) and $3 (2nd pet or more).

Rates: Starting at $16.50/visit

We know that often times the pets that need the most care is those who are seniors. We began offering a senior services as we would continually receive requests from clients whose pets need special attention.

This service is ideal for clients who:

  • A little arthritic, have a hard time getting around.
  • Have a pet who is on a medication.
  • Are owners of a senior dog who may be having a difficult time holding it in.

The Senior breaks last only 15-20 minutes– just long enough to insure your senior pet gets the special care they deserve.

Rates: Call for custom price.

We offer a full line of customized services. Ask us how we can accommodate your needs. That’s why we offer customized services called “TLC” Services.

Our TLC services have extra pampering built right in, including:

  • Pet Taxi Service for those time your pet has appointments during working hours. Let us take your pet to his or her appointments, without you ever having to re-arrange your busy schedule.
  • Home checks while you’re away including bringing the mail and any packages, watering plants, adjusting the lights, bringing in trash cans, and giving your home a “lived in” look.
  • Extended pet visits allowing your pet to have more one-on-one time.
  • Dog field trips and extended walks and hikes.
  • Pet medicine administration.
  • And more!

Whatever your need, let us know and we can help!

Detailed Information

In 2015, I moved to Round Lake Beach. My lifelong affinity for animals led me to apply as a pet sitter and walker at Snaggle Foot Round Lake, a part-time job that quickly became a full-time calling.😉

I believe animals add such richness to everyone’s lives, and bridge barriers of many kinds in our communities. I am proud to carie for these animals, eliminating pet parents’ stress about the logistics of pet ownership, so they can focus on enjoying their pets to the fullest extent.

When the opportunity to buy the franchise arose, I knew my natural abilities, acquired skills, and broad business experience made it the right choice to make. When I’m not walking dogs, I spends my time visiting family, traveling, attending concerts, and relaxing by a campfire.
