    Lori proved to be caring and reliable during the week she cared for my cat. She was consistent and sent me pictures and updates every day. She even brought him toys. I will definitely use Coco & Boo again!

    Fur baby spoilage at its finest!
    The entire experience was great. Super friendly service, great daily updates, spoiled our fur babies. I would hire again in a heartbeat (and will at somepoint). Very highly qualified staff. We hired for overnight care and it went perfect.

    Lori came to our Babe we are home to care for our two boys. She is a wonderful cat caregiver. I recommend her for pet sitting any time. She will send pictures and photos of your pets every day. That is so thoughtful of her.

    Grateful for Kim & Lori =)
    Kim and Lori were super sweet and personable when they came over to 'meet n greet' our little family. Kim took care of our puppies awesomely and sent us pictures each time she visited. We felt at ease and comfortable with her services. We are so very happy with Lori and Kim and would recommend their services to anyone.

    Kim and Lori were fantastic. Lori came out with Kim (the one who would be staying overnight) to meet my dogs. I was very impressed when they brought toys for them. Kim was great with my dogs as well as taking care of my house. I received daily texts and pictures of the dogs which relieved any anxiety I had about leaving the dogs. My vet is in Orange County but Lori recommended a vet close by which reassured me that if there happened to be an emergency everything would be handled. I also appreciate the fact that they are licensed and bonded, just another reassurance. I am very happy with the services Coco and Boo provided for my fur babies. Kim treated my dogs like they were her own. I could tell how much they liked her when she returned the house key once I got home. I will be using them again when I go out of town.

    I adore my cat. I can't over state it. I have terrible separation anxiety when I am away from my furr ball. Lori is the PERFECT fit! She adores cats, listened to me go on about how to make my cat feel good, accommodated my every request. Lori sent me pictures and vids of all her visits, which helped me immensely. Lori also went way above and beyond caring for Bellie-cat, bringing her toys, and a new pooper scooper! Plus my cat adored Lori! Lori so clearly loves cats, I don't want any one else watching my angel. Thank you Lori!

    Such a relief to be out of town and know your pets are in great hands. I'm not sure if Lori has surpassed us in the cats' eyes given the happiness they showed in the pictures, but I'm greatful regardless :)

    Amazing! Our dogs were so loved and cared for. Lori and her team went above and beyond taking care of our 2 dogs for an entire week! HIGHLY recommended for individuals who love their pets like children and want the absolute best care! Made our pups feel extra important and like they were the only 2 dogs they were caring for!

    Oh my gosh! My husband and I were so impressed with Lori's professionalism and "can do attitude" even at the last minute on a holiday weekend! Just as important, she listened, asked and called me from her in car that she had stopped in the parking lot. She hadn't spoke with me ever before. 10 stars!!!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Yes and no. Each clients needs are different. Our basic visits or walks start at $25 per visit.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
After we make contact with our prospective client, we make arrangements for a complimentary Meet & Greet to make the acquaintance of both the pet parents but also the actual "Paw Client" that we will be caring for. It is important that we make a "connection" with the animals that we meet. We always bring a little "something special" for each of our prospective paw clients, so that they will remember us as something positive, if we are fortunate to be hired for the job.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Besides the Marketing and Sales degree and background, I have also completed the Certified Professional Pet Sitters certification CPPS. I have over 15 years of volunteering with such groups as San Diego Humane Society, Friends of Cats, Helen Woodward Animal Center and Cat House on the Kings. Coco & Boo give back to our community. We make and donate beautiful pet baskets for these rescue groups for their annual charity events (you can view photos on our Facebook Page)
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have always had and loved animals. I have volunteered with local and statewide rescue groups, so this was a logical step in starting Coco & Boo. Passion for animals was always a main drive. My goal is to add something positive to benefit our paw clients lives.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Of course, cats and dogs are the most common clients, but we have worked with box turtles, bearded dragons, fish, the usual little guys rats, mice, hamsters, chinchillas, and even a pet comoro dragon.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
There are a lot of so called self described "pet sitters" out there. Make sure whomever you hire is bonded and insured. This protects you the client if anything happens to your fur children while you area away. Emergencies do happen and being insured covers you to anything unforeseeable that may arise. Plus you can usually tell if your pet sitter is passionate about what they do. We don't go into this business to "get rich". We go into it because we love animals with all our hearts.
