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.

With us experiencing such amazing care, I just had to pay it forward and I can’t wait to love on your pups!
Elizabeth N. in Jacksonville
Taking care of animals isn’t just what I do, it’s who I am. I’ve lived on the Northside of Jacksonville for 26 years and have been working for Dog Days and Cat Naps Pet Sitters, and servicing Jacksonville and the surrounding areas for the last six years.
I have a Bachelors in Animal Behavior & I’m certified in Cat training, a passion I picked up after I started here. I have a dog and three ????????cats???????? of my own and I’m certified in animal first aid and cpr. Now I want to care for your fur babies, special needs babies, as I do my own. I have a repeat clientele, because looking after your babies is my calling.
I make repeat house calls, medicate your pets, stay overnight as needed, water your plants, pick up the mail, take out trash, secure your home and keep your furbabies happy, while you’re enjoying yourself.

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!
