From our valued clients:

I wanted to say how very pleased I have been with the service we have received from Dog Days & Cat Naps.  Very reliable and very reasonably priced.    We will definitely use your services in the future and would recommend you highly.  Lynn P.  (St. Augustine)

Amy did a great job with my 2 cats while I was on vacation in October.  She was always available when ever I called about my babies.  Jim D. (Jacksonville)

Recently I just relocated back to St. Augustine with my Pet, Sasha, and was asked to go on a business trip.  This concerned me as Sasha was just getting familiar with the new surroundings and I was going to be away.  Luckily I called Dog Days & Cat Naps and had the pleasure of working with Esme McGrath.  It was easy to see at once that Esme bonded with Sasha and was caring and compassionate.  She left me detailed daily descriptions on how the day went for Sasha, and also texted me to assure me that all was well.  I can’t tell you how much that meant to me during this very busy time to know that my pet was in good hands!  Esme was very professional and I would highly recommend her for you and your pet!! Thanks again, Esme!  Dianne (St. Augustine)

Thank you for all the great walks for my furry kids!  Stephanie D. (Jacksonville)

Wonderful as always.  Barbara G.  (Jacksonville)

Thank you Irena so much for taking care of our babies.   Mary (Mandarin)

The extra dollars is a tip for Iryna. She takes such good care of Sebastian.  Valerie M. (Mandarin)

I just want you know how wonderful Lori is … My furkids are my babies… I have a tripawd, an old man kitty and a puppy…so the needs vary considerably.  I was so nervous about having to be gone all day and leaving them couped up…but my mind has been set at ease when I found DDCN and Lori.  She is fantastic with them. I get notifications and pictures of them while she is here, and it makes the day less stressful for me knowing they are being taken care of while I’m unable to. The love and compassion she has for them, shows with her daily notes, and pics.  Thank you so much!  I don’t know what I would do without her!! They love the Lori visits…for sure!!!  Nichole M. (Westside)

Thank you Renee for such wonderful wonderful service!! We tell everyone how great you were!! 🙂  Ashley O. (Mandarin)

I want to let you know what a great job Lisa does with my cats. My cats don’t like it at all when I go on vacation, but Lisa works with them and has helps them get thru the stress. With Lisa there, I know I don’t need to worry about my cats when I am on vacation!  Thanks again.  Sally E. (Intracoastal West)

Thank you.  You guys are awesome.  We truly appreciate your professionalism and attention to our pets and home.  Nick C. (St. Augustine)

We just returned from our trip. Melanie Nichols was our sitter and she was fantastic! We love her so much. From the moment we met Melanie, we knew she was an angel. She was so professional and caring. She was so thorough and was so personable. We felt so good leaving our babies in her care. She not only took care of our “crew” she was kind enough to take care of the mail and trash while we were away. Melanie has such a big heart. She really left a lasting impression on all of us. I hope she continues to work with Dog Days. You guys do a great job and we’ve always been so impressed by the care our babies receive. Please keep doing what you do and please keep Melanie in your employ. We will call you again as soon as we’re ready for the next trip. Thank you all again and XOXO to Melanie! Gena, Jason and the furkids :-) (Orange Park)

Just wanted to say how happy we were with Donna Howard. She took great care of our kitty, kept us posted every day with texts and pics. Our cat is very shy and reticent, but warmed up very quickly to Donna. We will definitely use her again. Jan Somers (Ponte Vedra)

I was visiting Jacksonville and staying in a pet-friendly hotel with my two dogs and while out to dinner the hotel called me to tell me that guests were complaining about my barking dog. I came back to the hotel and decided to look up pet sitters on www.petsit.com and entered the zip code for the hotel and found this great pet sitting company. They had a pet sitter at my hotel within 30 minutes and she was absolutely fantastic and I was able to go to my planned event that evening. I would absolutely call on this company again whenever in the Jacksonville area!  Thanks, Monica Pfister

Hi Lisa!!! I’m so sorry that it took us so long to write to you! I put your card away so that I wouldn’t lose it and then couldn’t remember where I put it of course!!!! Sheldon and I just wanted to thank you so much for looking after our home and our babies while we were away in Canada. Once we heard from you that first time we were so at ease and didn’t worry one bit the whole while we were away. We can’t tell you how good that felt for us. Not knowing anyone here and leaving our boys for the first time since we traumatized them from moving them here we were just worried about their stress levels and we’re just so happy that we found you. Thank you again Lisa. Other than Alvin ignoring me for most of the day when we got home everything was perfect like we were just out for the day! You’re the best! We look forward to the next time. Thanks so much Lisa. Meaghan, Sheldon, Cas, Alvin and Zeke (Jacksonville Beach)

Just wanted you all to know how very much I appreciate all you and your family are doing for Scout (and me!). I am so very grateful. And, I miss her more than I thought possible. You have no idea how great it is to hear how happy my girl is with you all. I am sure she is in excellent hands. Please tell her I will be home soon. Thank you so much, Becky. Bonnie B. (Arlington)

Of all the pet sitters I have had in my lifetime – your company is the best and LYNNE is awesome! Thanks, Melanie N. (Westside)

Lisa does such a nice job watching my cats – very pleased with her. Diana W. (Intracoastal)

Thank you so much. We really appreciate you guys. You’re our first choice hands down to watch out for our boy. He’s always happy when we come back to him…can’t say that about every place. We’re sort of sporadic in our needs, so we definitely appreciate the flexibility. Take care, Susie C. (Ponte Vedra Beach)

I want to thank you Becky, for helping me out when I needed a sitter at a moment’s notice. I’m relieved that I can count on you. Jean N. (San Marco)”Thank You” for hiring people of good character so that a pet owner, like myself, can feel more at ease with giving an individual who is basically a stranger access to their home and entrust them to care for their loved ones – my Fur Kid’s. Thank You, Linda F. (Southside)

Thanks so much – you guys are just the best! Bette M. (Mandarin)

Thank you for the outstanding work you do and the peace of mind you afford me. Sincerely, Sharon S. (Ponte Vedra)

Thank you for the great service you provided for me while I was out of town waiting for my grandchild to come! I will recommend this service highly to others. Denise S. (Argyle)

My heartfelt thanks to you and Lisa for the excellent care I can tell Smokey received. She was quite chipper when I got home and I could tell she had been eating very well, etc. I was worried about leaving Smokey alone so soon after Rocky’s death but Lisa must have given her the extra attention she needed. As always, I hold your company in highest regard and will continue to recommend you without question. Thank you again. Barb. (Intracoastal West)

Thanks again for the excellent service!! Ann H. (Mandarin)

Becky, as always, Smokey was very well taken care of by Lisa. Smokey is getting up in years (17 of them now) and it is so wonderful knowing that she is in good hands while I’m away. I will continue to strongly recommend Dog Days & Cat Naps to my friends and co-workers. Barb T. (Intracoastal West)

Thanks so much for your wonderful service as it was a relief not worrying about Gizzmo over the holiday. She clicked with Sharon wonderfully and we look forward to using your service again. Respectfully, Jan G. (Mandarin)

I just wanted to let you know that Heather did a great job taking care of Blitz and Lady. I am very happy and I definitely will ask her again to take care of my dogs. Thanks again, Dagmar L. (Argyle)

We have relocated. Thanks for your good service. We were always really happy with the care you provided. Janine M. (Southside)Lynne did a real nice job. Fleishman looked happy and well cared for upon my return. Chris S. (Riverside)

I just wanted to let you know how very happy we are with the care that Carol gives our pets when we are away. She is wonderful!! Liz J. (Atlantic Beach)

I wanted to let you know that we are very happy with the service your company, and especially Patti, provided us this weekend in the care of our two beloved cats, Max and Blackie (quite a pair as she can tell you). We will contact you again when we next need care for our “dynamic duo.” Claudia O. (Ponte Vedra Beach)

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that Kimberly did a great job with my cats. I do appreciate the service even though I hate to leave my “boys.” I was kept informed about the visits and had a good written report when I returned. Thank you and thanks to Kimberly also! I will call you again when I have to travel. Billie B. (Yulee)

I would like to take this time to let you know how happy with are for the service that your company provides and we are pleased that you hire such quality people likeTess!! It is a comfort being able to leave our pets and know that someone very reliable is taking care of them. See does such a great job, thanks again and happy New Year! Thinking back I think we are going on 3 years of using your service. Take care! Kevin B. (Orange Park)

I wanted to say thank you for taking such good care of my dog this last weekend. She was happy and content but of course much happier when I showed up. I really like the pet care report because it gave me feedback on her behavior while I was gone. Thank you again and I am happy she behaved well for you. I look forward to the next time I need your service, I will be sure to email or call to arrange. Take care and enjoy the holidays. Gracie M. (Orange Park)

I am very pleased with your service and with Glenn as a sitter. Thanks and Happy Holidays! Lynn W. (San Jose)

Please extend my sincere thank you to Lisa for taking such wonderful care of Smokey (again)!!! It certainly puts my mind at ease to be able to call upon Lisa time and time again. It was so nice to get the call on Day 1 reporting that Smokey was (and would be) just fine. You guys provide a wonderful service for all pet lovers who find it hard to leave their furry friends at home. I will be calling again as well as referring anyone to you that I can. Thank you again!! Barb and Smokey (Intracoastal West)

HI! I just wanted you to know that Iryna is very kind. I really liked her and she seems very consciencious. Thank you for the recommendation. Kathe P. (Southside)

I wanted to let you know how much Miles enjoys your service. It is a HUGE comfort to me to know that he’s well cared for when my husband and I are out of town. Miles is a very happy cat when we come home, and I know this is because Lynne gives him lots of love and attention. Lynne is fantastic, and I do so greatly appreciate her help! Michele O. (Riverside)

Sharon was wonderful- she loves my kitty and he has gotten used to her. She also leaves me detailed messages of their playtime. I really think she is great and does a great job at watching Bruce-Wayne. It makes a “mother” feel at ease leaving him at home while on vacation. Kelly S. (Southside)

I just wanted to let you know how happy Jim and I are with Amanda sitting for our puppies Reggie and Mickey. They’re doing great together! They get a lot of fun and exercise from the mid-day walk/play sessions, and both Jim and I are able to come home from work earlier to be with them also. That was more difficult when we had to drive 30 minutes each way from the office to let them out at lunch. Your service has made our puppies and us much less “stressed out” from our long days at work. Nancy L. (Oceanway)

Thank you for caring for Tobi. We were very pleased with the care that he received. Jane, who tended Tobi, was very careful to follow all instructions that we left. We will certainly use your services again and have recommended Dog Days and Cat Naps to several of our friends. Cheryl F. (Westside)

I just wanted to drop a quick note to tell you how much we love Petra! She is just great. Thank you very much!!! Becky W. (Ponte Vedra)

Once again I can’t express how much we appreciate the wonderful care given to our pet. Although he has a bit of separation anxiety we have been assured that it is only until we are out of sight. Give our thanks again to Debbie and Jane for the attention and care they gave to Tobi. It was evident when we picked him up. Cheryl F. (Westside)

Just want to thank you for the excellent care our dog Spencer received from Iryna this past weekend. She is very good with him and we also appreciated the lovely visit beforehand. Barbara M. (Mandarin)

Thank you for taking such good care of my babies. Sally E. (Intracoastal West)

Thanks, Becky. I was glad that Kim could be here on short notice. It certainly helps to know I can count on y’all to take care of Shadow and Grey! Thank you. Liz R. (Northside/Oceanway)

Thanks to you and Lisa for the great care that was given to Smokey. She looked quite happy when I got home!! I was happy to see that Smokey actually put a little bit of her weight back on (she was under the weather, but on the mend before I left). It is really nice to get the Day 1 phone call!! I have a lot of trust in both you and Lisa and will continue to pass my good words on for you. Regards, Barb T. (Intracoastal West)

Linda is just so wonderful, and I really appreciate the service you provide. Thank you, and have a great evening. Brooke B. (Arlington)

Thank you. Great job, as usual. Russ W. (Intracoastal West)

I want to thank you for the great care Ellie and Lola received. We both LOVED Kim and Valerie and they really are true pet lovers. Both did a wonderful job with everything, we especially enjoyed the emails and notes. Look forward to future business with you. Kristina Q. (Northside/Oceanway)

THANK YOU! Lisa was GREAT and we can tell that she took very good care of our faminals (that’s what we call them 🙂 while we were away. They were very happy and their food and water bowls were clean and full. It’s like we never left! We are very pleased!!! Rena J. (Intracoastal West)

Lynne is great: she really does a good job and I feel that the little guys are in good hands when I have to go away. Thanks again. Jan S. (San Marco)

I just wanted to let everyone at Dog Days and Cat Naps what a wonderful employee you have in Lisa P. We have used your services for several years and have been blessed to have Lisa as our pet sitter. She always calls upon arrival (I realize this may be part of your policy) to let us know how the animals are behaving and to go over the schedule of visits. Most importantly I want you to know how much my wife and daughter appreciate the ease at which Lisa can be contacted; we call her several times over the course of our time away just to check in as our black Lab is getting older and has issues.

Lisa thank you for the caring and compassion you show our pets. Steve B. (Intracoastal West)

Hope all is well and I look forward to doing business with your firm again. I would highly recommend Dog Days and Cat Naps to any pet lover torn with leaving their loved one behind. The written updates were very helpful as well. Thanks again for everything. Kind regards, Vicki C. (Southside)

Good Morning, I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that “Susan” seems to be a wonderful fit with my Kid’s. I would guess that 98% of your customer’s, if not 100%, feel that their pets are members of their family and are extremely careful with who they leave in charge of their well being. I also know that animals are very good when it comes to reading a persons true character and I find that my “Bear” excels in this area and he was immediately at ease with her and so where my other two (2) dog’s as well. “Sweetpea”, one of my cat’s even made an appearance to see what all the excitement was about and got some cuddle time too. Friday was an extremely “busy” day for me and she was at my home and ready to go at exactly 1:30PM which impressed me even more. She helped load the Kid’s and drove them to Julington Creek, with some help from “Jake” I believe, helped unload and waited patiently while they were escorted back to their kennel. She was extremely professional and I was so impressed that I bragged all weekend to all of my friends! I feel very comfortable at this time with the fact that she will be the one taking care of my kid’s when neither my husband nor myself are available. I hope that she feels the same. “Thank You” for making the perfect match for our family. Also, is it appropriate to leave a “tip” for your sitter? She did such a wonderful job that I would like her to know that her efforts did not go unappreciated. Linda F. (Southside)
