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 up and down the East Coast of 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).

Kelly M. in Jacksonville
I originate from Central Florida but have called Jacksonville home for the last twenty-one years. I graduated from UNF with a degree in Education and taught for four years. My husband and I decided I would stay home and homeschool our children. Which, I have graciously done for the last 12 years. They are 12, 9, and 4 and keep me busy! Pets have always been a part of my life. But over the last 15 years that love has blossomed. We have fostered many animals that seem to find their way to us! This past year we had the opportunity to raise 5 orphaned squirrels that we have since released. We still see them in our backyard daily! Besides the squirrels, we have a house full of blessings of all varieties. Working with DDCN has been a blessing and has given me the opportunity to serve other families.

I love the extra time I get to spend with the animals in the this job. I do dog walking, pet sitting(daily visits), and overnight sitting. My full time job is as a personal trainer so the flexibility of that job allows me to work at Dog Days and Cat Naps which is awesome! I would love for the opportunity to care for your pet and keep them happy while you are away!

Hi, my name is Olivia. I have never lived in a home without a dog or cat in the past 36 years :) I love animals! I have a 4 year old lab/golden retriever mix named "Rhapsody" and a cat, "Lucy". What I love about our pets is that they remind us to slow down & take peaceful moments. And most of all, they remind us to laugh and not take life so seriously!
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!

Adam H. in St. Augustine
My family always owned dogs while I was growing up. I’m very comfortable around dogs and cats. I really enjoy being around animals. I love to exercise and people are always telling me I have a special connection with their pets. Very often people have expressed surprise that their pets like me so much as they usually don’t like strangers. I am currently a student working on my degree.

Jessica J. in Riverside
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.

Hello everyone, I'm Lauren, mommy to two children and three furry, cat babies! I got my first cat from the Humane Society over 4 years ago; the other 2 I rescued as one-day-old kittens from my backyard, nursed them, and raised them to be my spoiled little shadows that they are today. I have been pet sitting with Dog Days since 2014. I have a love and respect for all animals, and, if I have the pleasure of taking care of your own furry babies, I will always treat them like they were my own!
