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. We also have a new service location in Gainesville.
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 office hours are: 8:30am-5:30pm Mon-Fri and 9:30am-12:30pm on Saturdays.
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 a 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.
Please look over our service offerings to see how we can help with your pet care needs. We’re happy to help! Schedule your free, no obligation consultation today!

I have used Dogs Days for at least 10 years. My cat sitter is Iryna and she is purr-fect. My cats loved her. So much that they don't even acknowledge my presence when I return. She always goes above and beyond taking of my cats. One requires a lot of attention and she makes sure he gets all the hugs and pets he needs. In addition, she always provides me with phone calls or texts as to how the everything is at home. I would highly recommend her for anyone who needs a pet sitter.
Easy, convenient, with experienced pet sitter.
The process of setting up to care for our two indoor cats while we travel for the first time without them has been outstanding. The staff and Carole who will be taking care of our cats made for a very smooth and refreshing worry free trip. We now feel very comfortable leaving our cats at home! Thank you!
This is my first experience with a professional pet sitting agency and I am VERY happy! Michele did a wonderful job and I will request that she come back the next time I am out of town. I will definitely recommend your agency to others. Thank you!
