about us

DogsPajama_Patterns3.png

The Dog's Pajamas was born out of a need to provide pet owners with another low-stress option for pet care. After a personal negative experience kenneling our dogs, we knew keeping our pets in their familiar home environment would help them stay peaceful, relaxed, happy, and in the routine in which they thrive when we're away.

 

The feedback we hear most often is the peace of mind our clients have while they are away knowing their pets and home are well taken care of. We're proud of the relationships we've built with our pet families and would be honored to build one with you, too!

We value continued education

All of our sitters undergo continued education and training to ensure consistent and quality care for your pets, and have completed over 10 hours of Fetchfind online pet care training.

Meet the team

Amy.png

Amy S.

Founder & Owner

I haven’t always been a dog person, but my husband begged for a puppy in 2005, not even two weeks after we moved into our first house. I became a crazy dog mom and I’ve never looked back. Fast forward 16 years, 4 dogs, and 4 cats later... 

The Dog's Pajamas was founded to give other pet owners an option for more personalized and less stressful care for their pets. That’s why I started my pet sitting business…to help YOU do better for your pets. Because they mean the world to us.

LOVE FROM OUR CLIENTS

“I am very pleased with being able to leave Roxy at the house while I am away. Normally, I would pick her up from being boarded and she would be stressed to the point where all she would do is sleep for the next day or two.”
