Pet Sitting

Really fantastic experience with The Peaks Pet Nanny service. Patric and Gina went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well informed prior to our first use of their service over Spring Break 2021. Our sitter, Olivia, was amazing - sending us text updates and pics of our dog, Maddie, everyday and leaving very detailed written summaries of each visit we reviewed when we returned. Couldn't be happier with the communication, their process for onboarding new clients and the overall quality of the services. We'll be back! Highly Recommended!!

Ive been a pet nanny with The Peaks Pet Nanny for 2+ years and it has been a great experience. Patric and Gina are wonderful, caring people. Theyve done an amazing job growing their pet sitting business, and I believe its because (1) they are passionate about their business and truly care about their clients and team of pet nannies; (2) they are true professionals and a pleasure to do business with; and (3) they are committed to having a team of nannies that are as passionate, responsible and professional as they are. If youre looking for pet nannies who will care for your pets as if they were their own, The Peaks Pet Nanny is the best!

Dear Donna, knowing our Pet Nannies have found meaning and are happy doing what they love brings be such joy. It's the very reason why I started The Peaks Pet Nanny :) After many years in corporate America I needed fulfillment, doing something that gave me a sense if purpose. I'm so happy you feel the same and we have the pleasure of working together. Thank you so much for sharing your kind words, it means the world to me. - Gina

I have worked for The Peaks Pet Nanny for 15 years, and cant say enough about the professional way in which Gina and Patric run their business and about the wonderful pet nannies I have the pleasure to work with. I left my corporate job to follow a passion of working with animals, and am so glad I found my work home with TPPN back in the summer of 2005. Over the years, I have cared for hundreds of clients...dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, name it! I treat every clients home and their pets as if they were my own...and I only mention that because I know the rest of The Peaks Pet Nanny staff feels the same way about their clients as well. Need a long walk for your dog? Done! Kitty needs insulin shots? No problem! Packages need to be brought into the house? Were on it! Plants watered? Mail brought in? Check and check! If youre looking for a professional pet sitting service you can trust, The Peaks Pet Nanny is here for you :-)
