meet the owner:

Hi, I'm Jen, owner and founder of Lakewood Ranch Pet Care.  As a lifelong animal lover and owner, I've always had a heart for taking care of pets.  Before relocating to Florida in 2019, I was heavily involved in a foster based dog rescue in Ohio.  When we moved I decided to turn my love of animals into my career.  I started pet sitting for a local company and through app based services before deciding to open my own business so that I could provide the level of care your pet deserves. 

why fear free?

As a Fear Free Certified Professional, I pledge to do my part in alleviating fear, anxiety, and stress in the animals I am caring for.  I use scientifically sound, reward-based methods that positively affect  not only the animal's behavior, but also the underlying emotional state. Rewards can come in the form of treats (so please let us know of any food allergies or intolerances), or high value toy play.  If you are interested in learning more about Fear Free, please check out their website.
