Dog Days & Cat Naps is a professional pet sitting and dog walking service in northeast Florida.  We have reliable and caring pet sitters in your area – who would LOVE to meet your pets!  We have provided care for Florida pets since 2000 – and we look forward to meeting you and caring for your furry family members. We service most parts of the Jacksonville, FL area, from Fernandina Beach to St. Augustine, including the Beaches and Orange Park. 

We travel to you – to care for your pets in the comfort of their own home, where everything is comfortable and familiar to them.   If you prefer, we can provide loving care for your pets in our homes, where someone will be with them for most of the day and night.  You can count on us to provide excellent care for your dogs and cats and other cuddly critters.  We assign one pet sitter to your household and pets (a caring, qualified sitter who lives near you) unless scheduling requires more.  And we’ll always send a trusted back-up pet sitter to care for your pets should the need arise.

Our pet services include: in-home pet sitting / vacation care (dogs, cats, other house pets), recurring midday dog walking service, private boarding and doggie daycare (in our homes), overnight pet sitting (in your home), hotel pet sitting and wedding pet care, local pet transportation, pooper scooper service, pet supply shopping, and house sitting (no pets).

Our service hours are generally 7:00am to 9:00pm, seven days a week.  

Our mission is to provide excellent care for pets and a great customer experience for their owners. We want you to feel confident that your pets are being well cared for, so we have put systems in place to ensure that. We have an online client portal where pet owners can check their schedules, add current pet care instructions, view visit feedback reports, request services, and pay online. We will email you a visit feedback report on each visit to let you know how your pets are doing. We use a pet sitter GPS check-in/check-out system for quality control.  We utilize a pet sitter training program that keeps our sitters up-to-date on pet care issues. And we conduct thorough interviews and background checks on our pet sitters. Most importantly, our new client meet & greets are free, giving you the opportunity to meet your new pet sitter to ensure s/he is a good fit for your pets.

I just used the wonderful company for the first time to cat sit while i was on vacation. The entire process was quick easy professional. My cat sitter Megan was amazing. She went way above the minimum in caring for my cat! I highly recommend this company and specifically Megan

Melanie did a great job with our babies! Even our anxious dog went out with her with no problem! I appreciate her not forcing her to do anything! That makes a big difference! Also, I love the the service summary with pictures. Will be using you guys again and hopefully get Melanie again!

You guys did what you said you would do and took very good care of our two kitties. The cost was very reasonable. We especially appreciate Kim Allison and hope she will be available when we take our next trip later on in the summer. After trying pet boarding and not being happy with the results this route for pet care while we are away is so much less stressful. Both for us and for our kitties. You WILL hear from us in June, for a July trip. Thank you sooooo much!!!!

We loved our petsitter Linda & trusted her immensely with our 3 babies. We'll definitely use Dog Days & Cat Naps again in the future.
