“Kimberly did a great job watching my babies while I was gone for 5 days! Sent great pictures and updates! My group isn't always the easiest, but she did great with them! Would definitely use her again!”
“Jennifer is the best!!!! My cats were treated so well that I didn't see any difference in their behavior after our extended departure. They were relaxed when we arrived and I could see right away that they really liked the care Jennifer gave them. Jennifer was very helpful and available. She helped us out when our trip out of the country was extended by 2 weeks. I had peace of mind knowing my cats were in good hands. Everything was clean when I arrived and my cats had missed us, but I could see that they were relaxed and well fed. seraphin, my most shy cat, was super comfortable with her, and that's a great proof of the quality of the bond Jennifer knows how to build with animals. Thank you :-)”

“Sue goes above and beyond to care for any pet! I recommend her to anyone in or around Lakeland.”
“Vanessa is a wonderful pet sitter! She went above and beyond to make sure our pups were loved, well-cared for, and happy while we were away. She kept us updated on how our dogs were doing and took lots of picture. We were able to relax knowing our fur babies were in such great hands. In the future we will be booking Vanessa whenever we can for in-home dog care and will be recommended her to all of our friends.”

“The amount of care and compassion Haleigh gives is second to none. Having known her for many years and seen first hand how attentive and caring she is. From shelter work, to her own personal animals and random encounters with animals. I wouldnt want any other person taking care of my animals than her! She takes pride in her love of animals like no one else and treats everyones fur babies just like her own”

“I've known Mikayla for many years and she has always been an animal person. She's been happy to assist me many times in the bathing and grooming of my animals. Or taking care of them while I'm away from home. She has provided excellent care for all of my pets. She is very caring, patient, and willing to go the extra mile. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a dependable, caring and knowledgeable person to care for their pets.”
About: My name is Kat and I’ve been taking care of pets since I was around 10. I care for all animals small and large and I have two dogs and a cat of my own! I am a college student wanting to spend more time with animals as I’m away from my own fur babies. I am free on most weekends and every Tuesday and Thursday. I love being around animals especially that I’m in college and away from my own animals. I have always been a firm believer to let pets approach you first. I know there are many gentle giants out there and I don’t want to scare anyone’s fur baby! I have been a sitter for animals that are crate trained and not, so it’s up to the owners preference and the animals needs.
“Bridget dropped in on my two doggos Torque and Holly while I went out of town for the weekend! No accidents in the house and they got all the lovins and attention from Bridget. Cutest pictures ever”
“April was amazing. Very professional. Took care of any changes we had immediately. Our Animal kingdom loved her, and she loved taking care of them. She was always on time for her drop-ins and she checked in and checked out perfectly. She let us know of any issues, a and took care of them immediately. Such a pleasure knowing that we could relax knowing our pets would be well cared for. We were able to concentrate on our family. We will most definitely book with her again.”
“Kayleigh is a wonderful, responsible person and pet lover. She has been responsible on many occasions to watch our two dogs- a Great Dane and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She does well with both small and large dogs and I would recommend her to anyone seeking a pet sitter.”
“Tiffany was amazing went above and beyond for my 2 little chihuahuas. Taking them on walk and making sure they were fed at the right time. She even asked if she could bring her dog over for a little more playtime with my dogs and hers and she was awesome making sure they were taken care of I highly recommend requesting Tiffany for any service needed for my babies in the near future.”
About: I grew up observing and helping my grandparents breed Great Danes since I can remember. The way the cared for their dogs is what I carry with me now - love, empathy, and making them feel like family. I would help them walk, feed, bathe, and care for them from puppies that are weeks old to dogs that are in their elder years. This then led to me taking care of neighbors and family friends pets (dogs and cats). I have been reliant to help take care of their pets from overnight to a month long. This included taking them out for walks, playing for extended periods of time, feeding, bathing, changing litter, etc. I currently work from home during the weekday and am preparing to head back to nursing school starting 2024. I am happy to discuss schedules on a case-by-case basis to fit your pets needs, as I am flexible to work with and am available at all times during the day for the remainder of 2023. I understand that each pet is unique and has their own personality. I never want to overwhelm a pet or make them uncomfortable, which is why I use a slow approach to see how the pet responds. I extend my palm for them to smell and react, so I can gain their trust. I care for pets in a mindset the same as babysitting a child - understanding that the responsibility is placed in my hands, ensuring they are safe and well taken care of.
“Alison did an awesome job taking care of Marvin this week! She took lots of pictures for us and gave him lots of attention and play time. He is prone to anxiety whenever there is change, but he seemed so happy and relaxed when we got home :) Thanks again!!”
