meet the owner:
Hello, my name is Jen, and I am the owner and founder of Lakewood Ranch Pet Care. As a lifelong animal lover and pet owner, I have always had a passion for taking care of animals. Before moving to Florida in 2019, I was heavily involved in a foster-based dog rescue in Ohio. When we relocated to Florida, I decided to pursue my passion and turn it into a career.
I started by pet sitting for a local company and through app-based services, where I gained valuable experience in caring for pets of all kinds. Eventually, I realized that I wanted to provide a higher level of care to pets in my community, which is why I decided to open my own business - Lakewood Ranch Pet Care. My ultimate goal is to provide the highest quality of care for your pets, and to treat them with the love and respect that they deserve.
a team approach:
Having a team of sitters introduced to pets is important for a pet sitting company for several reasons. First, it increases availability as there are more sitters available to take on jobs and provide care to pets. Additionally, with a team in place, it allows for flexibility in scheduling and provides coverage in case of illness or other unexpected situations. It's also important to note that all sitters pass a thorough background check, are fully insured and bonded, and Pet CPR and First Aid certified, ensuring the safety and well-being of the pets in their care.
why fear free?
As a Fear Free Certified Professional, I am committed to alleviating fear, anxiety, and stress in the animals under my care. I utilize scientifically sound, reward-based methods that positively influence not only the animal's behavior, but also their underlying emotional state. The rewards I provide can come in the form of treats or high-value toy play, so please let us know of any food allergies or intolerances your pet may have.
If you're interested in learning more about Fear Free, I highly recommend checking out their website. By using Fear Free techniques, I can help create a more comfortable and pleasant experience for your pet, whether it's during a routine check-up or while they're in my care. My goal is to make sure that your pet is as happy and relaxed as possible, and I am dedicated to achieving that goal every time I work with an animal.
