I can’t say enough good things about Paul and The Good Life.  Since we moved out to the suburbs Paul has taken amazing care of Scout, Zane and Spur.  They each have their quirks and Paul takes each one in stride.  I never doubt that he has the best interest of my troops at heart and treats them as his own.

We wanted to provide a high quality of life for our dog while we were away from home each day working.  A friend referred me to Paul as a reliable and trustworthy dog walker, and I am very glad she did.  Paul is dependable, trustworthy and very good with my dog.  Paul's service not only provides excellent exercise for my dog, but Paul goes the extra mile to provide fun and lots of pets!  Because of Paul I do not worry about my dog when I am away.  Thanks, Paul for the great service you provide.

I have been a customer for many years.  I would not trust my dogs with anyone else than Paul.  He is trustworthy, kind and caring to my two pups.  I would be very upset if Paul switched careers :)

Paul has been walking our dog Max for a few years now. Max loves his walks and Paul gives us a nice detailed note on everything Max did on his walk. He gives him fresh water and belly rubs which Max just loves. He even goes the extra step and gives our cat(s) some loving. He is very conscious of the weather when it's too hot or too cold and takes that into account but then spends time at our house with him. I know Max is always super excited to see him. We are very lucky to have him help us take care of a very import member of our family!

I'm so happy to have Paul taking care of my dogs. He's dependable and the dogs love him. It's wonderful to come home after work and have my pets happy and not desperate to go out.

My husband and I both work full-time and are required to work long and crazy hours.  The decision to bring a dog into our family was not easy and dog walking services was a non-negotiable.  We needed to find someone that we could trust and willing to work with our schedules.  I invited Paul’s Good Life Pet Care over for an initial meeting with me and my deaf Border Collie, Cai.   Six years later and another puppy we are still using Paul’s services!  We are so grateful for his services, flexibility and the care he has for our Cai & Savannah.  I was nervous about bringing a 12 week old Border Collie home and returning to work, but I also knew I could count on Paul that Savannah would be in good hands.  Paul has been wonderful with the puppy’s changing needs over her first two years, a senior dog's needs and mine as I changed jobs/schedules.  I don’t know what I’d do without Paul’s Good Life Pet Care…it’s one less thing I don’t need to worry about while I’m away at work! 

Juliane and Brian – Elmhurst

After the death of my husband, I didn't know how I was going to find the time to walk his beloved dog (Midnight).  I am grateful to have found Paul to give Midnight the walks she so deserves.  I know that Midnight is happy and excited when Paul arrives for her walks.  Thank you, thank you!

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Jennifer and Paul Geraci, founding owners of The Good Life Pet Care to provide thoughtful, reliable and conscientious service for pet guardians when either busy schedules, vacation plans or unforeseen events interrupt or prevent appropriate pet care. 


I’ve know Jen and Paul for 5 years and know they are honest people who demonstrate their commitment and devotion to their own 4-legged family members by continually educating themselves about “issues” which may come up and by identifying how to help their dogs become and remain well-balanced pack members. 


Besides their own 4 dogs, Jen and Paul have fostered numerous rescued dogs offering them an opportunity for a new life within a new family who will provide a forever home.  Part of fostering dogs or cats is to give those needy animals the love and structure to help them heal from abandonment, neglect and abuse, rehabilitating them to the point where they can be successfully adopted into another family.  They’ll provide this same care to families attempting to correct “problems” with a beloved family animal.


Congratulations, Paul and Jen.  May your new venture on your life’s journey be successful and life changing for you and for those you serve.

I've used several dog walkers over the years and Paul at The Good Life Pet Care is the best.  He is very flexible, have reasonable prices and are really good with my dogs Lily and Shimmer.  Also, they are very thorough, professional and are fully bonded and insured.  I really enjoyed the recap report he left after the walks.  I would recommend him to anyone. 


        Best regards,

When our house sitter backed out on us at the last minute, we had to go to Plan B.  The problem was we had no Plan B.  We called Paul to see if he was available to come walk our dogs.  He happily obliged, and came right over to get instructions and a key. He went above and beyond in providing our dogs ample exercise, playtime and most importantly love and belly rubs all in the comfort of our home.


Paul is totally trustworthy and compassionate about his love of dogs.  We wouldn't hesitate in having them care for our pets again and highly recommend them to care for yours as well.
