We had an amazing experience with Paula. She was wonderful to ease my mind and was so patient with Bailey as she adjusted to the new surroundings as we were getting ready to leave her for the day. If you need a pet sitter in the Virginia Beach area, Paula is the one!

Mijo came back exhausted after a few days with Stella and Paula, and he’s been happily sleeping since. Thanks!

Paula was amazing!! This is the first time we have ever left one of our fur babies with someone else and she made it the best experience. Not only did she send pictures and videos of Ollie playing with his new best friend Stella but made us feel like he was getting all the attention he loves. Thank you so so so so much Paula and we will definitely be bringing him back to play ...

Former Vet Assistant of 16 years!

I'm a former veterinary assistant from Raleigh, NC and pet sitter for over 20 years! I’m looking to continue caring for animals now that I am settled in Virginia Beach. We've had dogs since I can remember and I was responsible for feeding, cleaning up, and medicating our pets. I have a 14 yr old cat, Rudd, a 2 1/2 yr old dog, Stella, and our newest family member Rosco is a 2 ...

What Paula would like to know about your dog

I need to know if your dog(s) are food and/or toy aggressive. I can work with this as my first born was food, toy, and dog aggressive; you must tell me up front so I can protect the dogs from injuries.
I would also like to know any history of seizures.
Does your dog hide his/her food to come back to it later (I know some dogs like to hide their treats for later).
And you must have treated your dog with a flea preventative; we are a flea free home and want to keep it that way. Thank you!

When Paula watches your pet

I like to keep your pets routine at home, the same routine at my house. I am not a runner, but will take on walks if requested. With weather permitting and permission, I can take your dog to the beach, the park, or just to the back yard to play.
