At Follow Your Nose, pets experience the equivalent of a combination department store, upscale eatery, and spa made just for them. When it comes to snack time, the crew that runs the shop bakes housemade, gluten-free cookies for pets and stocks savory treats made with free-range, grass-fed, and hormone-free meats. As customers shop, they encounter useful pet wares that include gentle, coconut-based shampoos, hand-knit sweaters, and memory-foam beds that combine stain-resistant fabrics with fashionable patterns. Sitters are also available to come to pets' homes to care for them while their owners are away. As a mark of their dedication, Follow Your Nose provides services every day of the year, even when their storefront is closed on major holidays such as Pet Thanksgiving.

Pickup and delivery services are available throughout the North Shore, Gold Coast, Magnificent Mile, and much of the northern suburbs, and the cleaners’ GPS-tracking verifies the time and location of order of pickup and drop-off.
As their name implies, Greenwise specializes in 100% eco-friendly landscaping services. Their maintenance packages for residential or commercial lawns use sustainable, renewable alternative products to keep Mother Nature from giving them a stern lecture. Propane- or electric-driven mowers trim grass with low amounts of emissions and their grass seed is fused with beneficial fungi that nourish turf without the need for added chemicals. Additionally, their fertilizers use nutrient-rich compost comprised of molasses and yeast, and weeds and harmful insects are eliminated with nontoxic, all-natural products.
Greenwise’s devotion to lowering carbon footprints extends to their landscaping design as well. They plant organic gardens that blossom with fresh fruits and vegetables to add aesthetic beauty to yards and cut down on trips to the grocer. They are also proponents of working with native flora, which make for a more sustainable garden and attract native birds and butterflies to yards to entertain bored lawn ornaments.
