Meet Our Sitters
We are proud to have a team of caring and responsible pet sitters who absolutely LOVE pets. All of us have pets of our own, and many of us have professional veterinary experience and/or years of experience caring for friends’ and family’s beloved pets. Most of our team has been certified in American Red Cross pet first aid.
We have over 60 pet sitters available to service North East Florida. Scroll down to see an image, the sitter’s name and location of some of our sitters.
Please note that we assign pet sitters based on service area (clients are assigned the sitter who lives nearest to them).

Stefanie K. in Nocatee
I’m 100% a dog person. Have been as far as I can remember. I’ve grown up with pedigrees and mixed breeds. They’ve all been amazing companions. My husband David and I have three girls, 14, 14 and 8. They are obsessed with dogs as much as I am. We’ve been with Dog Days and Cat Naps since 2021. We are located in Nocatee. We can board non shedding dogs. We have our own fur baby, Molly. She has grown to love all the guests that stay with us. When we board your dog, they are treated as a guest. They have free reign of our home and beds if needed. We treat them how they are used to in your own home.

Jessica J. in St. Johns
I am an animal lover! Dogs and cats (along with some hamsters and fish) have always been a part of my life. Presently I have 2 dogs and 3 cats, plus I feed a wide variety of feral cats on my front porch. I love all of their unique personalities and the companionship they provide. Pet-sitting provides me with the opportunity to give others what I know is appreciated during their time away: food (of course!), love and attention.

Mary Kay in Jacksonville
Upon retiring from 39 years as an elementary school teacher I wanted to stay active. I am already involved in doing music with my husband at community and church events. However, I wanted to do something else that would be giving and positive. I've always had at least one pet, usually more, since I was nine years old. I really wanted to work with animals, any kind! At the time, the Zoo didn't have openings for non-biology majors but then I found Dog Days and Cat Naps! I was very impressed with their professionalism, integrity and caring attitude. Now, that I work for them I am so glad to be a part of their team and love what I do!

Rebecca W. in Ponte Vedra
My name is Rebecca and I have never been without a dog in my life! My dogs are like my kids. Not only do I take care of them in a kind, loving and considerate way, but we've gone on many adventures together! Dogs have always brought me joy and I believe dogs can sense when someone truly cares about them. I will treat your dog with love, compassion, gentleness, patience and of course fun!
I love to board dogs and I have been working for Dog Days and Cat Naps since 2021. I'm available to watch and be with your dog the whole day. I can do frequent potty breaks, play time and frequent walks. I live in a beautiful neighborhood with sidewalks and walking trails. I have 2 kids (ages 10 and 12) who love dogs and would love to give out pets and snuggles.
Inside my house I have baby gates if needed. I also have a crate with a play area if needed. I have 1 dog named Yoshi (age 3) who loves to play with other dogs. When taking potty breaks, the leash will be placed on your dog before the door is open. I personally go out each time with the dog for all potty breaks. I offer plenty of exercise/walks if your dog prefers.
Romecca D. in Jacksonville
I am always happy to help my family, friends, and neighbors with their fur babies. They have entrusted me to watch their pets while they took trips and we got to enjoy the pet’s company.
I work full-time from home and I create my own schedule. This allows me ample time to play, walk, and take care of the fur babies and their needs.
I have a very large fenced in backyard that allows the animals to play and run as fast as they would like. I also have shaded areas that the animals can rest in. All pets are welcomed inside the house as well. We have a 65 lb dog that is as sweet as she can be. She loves to play with friends at all times and is extremely kind and gentle. She is best friends and cuddle buddies with our our little, 6 lb cats.
