“Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That’s the problem.” ― A.A. Milne

Everyday of my life I feel incredibly grateful to be a full time St. Louis pet sitting professional. Animals are so amazing, and I pride myself on the empathy, compassion and  companionship I naturally provide all of the animals I am privileged to serve. This level of dedication has earned Pooches and Pets Nanny. loyal, life-long clients who appreciate knowing their beloved pets are in good hands when they cannot be there to care for them themselves. Please take a look at some of my St. Louis pet sitting testimonials, and I welcome you to contact me for personal references, or to learn more about how I can be of service for you and your loved ones today.

“Daryn was great with my dog and stayed available during a cancelled flight. I will use her services again!”

“Wow! It has taken me two years to find the best sitter for my two kitty babies. I have very specific times that I need a sitter since my cats are on a routine and no other sitting place would comply, I even had sitters lie to me about the times they were at my home. Daryn is not only right on time, EVERY time, she is so nice and sweet and I know that she loves animals. She texted me every time she took care of my kitties. Although I missed my babies terribly, I knew they were in great hands. Thank you Daryn!!!”

“Daryn has taken care of my basset hound “Boots” numerous times. Daryn is very loving, responsible and always goes the extra mile. If my flight is arriving late, she offers to stay longer. Sometimes I think she leaves my apartment even cleaner than we she arrived. She does a great job giving me updates and my pup loves her!”

“Daryn has been taking care of my three cats for me for 15 months now, and there is nobody on the planet that I would trust more to take care of my sweet fur babies when I need to go out of town. Daryn is wonderful with my cats. They are typically shy and slow to warm up. They instantly took to Daryn, and they love when she is pet sitting. They eat and drink normally when I am away, which is fantastic, and when I come home, they are always well cared for. Daryn spends plenty of time playing with them and loving on them, and she checks in with me regularly to let me know how they are doing. She knows each of their quirky personalities so well, and loves them like I do. (-: Daryn is a treasure!! I don’t know how I would manage a career where I have to travel without her. I wish I could give her 10 stars! Daryn provided excellent care to my three cats. They are pretty shy but they all warmed up quickly to Daryn. She came by twice a day, stayed in close contact with me, and kept the house tidy while I was away (which was far and above beyond the call of duty of pet sitter!!) She is kind, conscientious, and responsible. You can absolutely trust your fur babies and your home in her hands.”

“Our family recently took a week vacation and Daryn was charged with taking care of our (3) dogs 24/7. She made a point of coming by prior to our vacation to meet our pets to learn all about their habits, likes and dislikes as well as what we expected. She was prompt, reliable and obviously loves what she does. While away she gave us daily updates and upon our return we found (3) well adjusted, happy and healthy pets. We never have to worry about leaving them again.”

“Having just moved to the valley, we searched and interviewed for a dog sitter and walker for our 2 golden retrievers, Daisy and Chloe. We were so happy to find Daryn. She has been dependable, trustworthy, and safe with our dogs. The best recommendation comes from our dogs who cry with excitement when they see her. Their display of affection is validation that we made the right choice.”

“We are so happy with Daryn and her pet care services. She takes wonderful care of our dogs. Not only does she walk them daily she takes them to the dog park. When we are away she stays in our home and spoils them with many walks and TLC. We recommend her highly.”
