What My Customers Think

Florence takes care of my daughter’s dogs and my dogs too. We have 6 of them! One is a special needs puppy; she was born with no front legs. She is dedicated to our dogs and she treats them like they are her family. She always goes the extra mile. She even buys pee pads and food when we are not at home. She is very thoughtful of the owners but more importantly of our dogs and our other pets - like the plants and shrimp in my aquarium! She has taken care of our dogs when we are out of town. She always keeps us up to date with texts and photos. I trust Florence for all my pets.

"There are not enough words to express our appreciation for the over five years of Flo's service keeping our girls happy, healthy (she made their food) and being well cared for. Be it a walk around the block, a day at the beach, playing in the backyard or curling on the sofa at night, the peace of mind is priceless. Thank you!"

- Kathy G., California

Florence is extremely caring, helpful and proactive pet sitter. When I employed her services, she arrived on time, read all the notes I left, communicated with me if she had any questions. She interacts with them, talks to them, and gives them all her love and attention when she is there. I have not found that in other sitters. She is extremely trustworthy and very ethical. Florence genuinely loves animals and caring for them.

we are so grateful to have been connected with Florence , she took the time to meet with me and learn all about our puppy’s habits and routine.


Florence took great care of our puppy, played with her and walked her often. During the 2 weeks of overnight puppysitting she also brought in our daily mail, took out the trash and recycling, fed our fish, and watered all of our outdoor plants.  Florence communicated frequently by text to let me know how things were going or if she had any questions.  I’ve already booked Florence for another upcoming trip and have no reservations whatsoever in recommending her for any pet sitting needs!

Florence is an amazing dog sitter . She stayed with my dog for 3 nights. He was so happy and had a smile on his face when we returned. She is loving and kind!

I hired Florence in September and she has been amazing. I have 2 dogs and she comes twice a day to walk them, and is flexible with my crazy work schedule. She has been a true asset and most importantly, both dogs adore her. I am very grateful I found her and highly recommend her.

Like best.

Love Florence, but more importantly is that my dogs love her more.  She is caring, kind and 100% reliable.  When you are away you never worry about your pets when they are in Florence’s care.  And when you come home everyone is happy.  She is my go to pet Walker and sitter Would recommend Yes

A big shout-out to Florence from Helping Paws. She has been a great help with my “aging” puggle. Florence has a great touch with dogs and she and my Bella became fast friends. I highly recommend her services!

- Rey Banks

We have had Florence pet-sit many times over the past few years, and it has always been a great experience! She came highly recommended from our neighbor/friend across the street who also has had her pet-sit and walk their dog many times over the years.. We have 3 very lively Pomeranians, and a scaredly kitty cat, and we have never had to worry about them when we've been away and they've been in Florence's care. She keeps us updated on how they are doing -- and she regularly texts us photos and videos of them so we don't feel so far away. We highly recommend Florence -- she clearly loves animals and is a wonderful caretaker of our fur babies.
