Introduction: Hello Pet Parents, My name is Lavina and I’m the owner of Starr Pet Sitting based in Oak Park, MI. I am insured/bonded. I offer pet sitting services to the Metro Detroit area at very reasonable rates! I am cat/dog CPR certified. I’ve been pet sitting for 9 years now so I have plenty of experience with many different types of pets who may require different needs. My service list: House sitting/overnights in the clients home, boarding/overnights in the sitter’s home (25pounds and under ONLY), pet taxi (transportation for the pet), drop in visits in the clients home, dog walking, daycare in the sitter’s home (25 pounds and under ONLY) , and dispensing medication if needed (injection, pills, eye drops, etc). I always provide companionship and more! I pride myself in going above and beyond to make sure that my clients and their fur babies receive the very best customer service possible. I am reliable, trustworthy, punctual, and a professional. I can’t wait to meet you and your pets! 😊

Dog Daycare

I will definitely be calling again when I go on vacation without my dog. Starr Pet Sitting sent updates, with photos, twice a day. My dog was well cared for and happy. She is attentive and loving! I highly recommend. My dog enjoyed playing with the other dogs.

Pet Sitting

Lavina went above and beyond to take care of our two little dogs. They normally don't warm up to people very fast, but liked Lavina right away. Next time we need a pet service, Starr Pet Sitting is first on our list!

Lavina is so nice! Professional, flexible. She sent me daily updates and pictures of my cat which I appreciated while I was away. I highly recommend her!

Dog Walking

Lavina has been such a blessing for me since I moved to Michigan. She is reliable, communicative, and has gone above and beyond to make sure my dog is taken care of. Looking forward to continuing using her services

Pet Sitting

Lavina was a wonderful petsitter to my two cats, Olaf and Boo. She took care to ask questions in our meet & greet and throughout the week if anything was unclear, which made me feel like she truly values doing great work and caring for my pets. The daily updates included photos and included a thorough description of each visit; I felt very comfortable leaving them in her care. Would absolutely hire Lavina for any future petsitting needs!

    I usually schedule a meeting before hand to see if it's a fit for both the customer and myself. Then after the meeting, if we both agree on everything, then I start the job.

    I have basic training techniques in commands.
