About Carole

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Note: I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting!
If you are like me and want the very best for your pet, please consider allowing me to come to your home while on vacation or at work. I would love to give my undivided attention to your furry friend if you need to be away. Let me rid your dog of all that energy by taking them for a walk or playing with their toys. Or I can simply be a companion to them. There are no extra vaccinations required with in-home care unlike many veterinarians and boarding facilities. And it is the most comfortable for your animal!

My husband and I have been married almost 28 years and we are the proud parents of three kids. At Your Service Pet Nanny is a full time job for me. I am available for a variety of services with very flexible hours.

My love of animals is a high priority in my life. I have 30 years experience caring for dogs. I am always happy to offer advice on how to care for your animals and relay what has worked for me. When I adopt an animal, I adopt for life and they are treated as a family member!!!

Carole was so wonderful with Bear, I can honestly say he was truly on a vacation with her! She's very caring and knowledgeable, and even gave me a heads up as to why he wasn't eating when we left! Truly a dog lover and a very kind lady!
Carole took loving care of our two dogs while we were away. It is obvious that she really cares and loves animals. She was super communicative, responsible, and professional. I even got pictures! We will certainly be using her again.
Went above and beyond!!! I could not recommend Carole more!! You can tell how much she cares for the animals she's watching. Very happy!
Carole took the time to learn about Peaches before her stay. Our elderly dog appeared happy and content from the pictures Carole shared with us. She left detailed daily reports. I highly recommend Carole as a trustworthy, caring dog sitter. She went above and beyond in the care of Peaches in our home!
We just used Carole for the first time and she was awesome. She took care of our two pooches on short notice and over a holiday, including overnight stays. Daily reports, pictures and text messages. She is obviously a dog lover.
Carole T. is a rockstar !! She came out for a meet and greet on a Wednesday for a Saturday job, she was very personable and impressive with getting to know pups right away and asking the right questions. On Friday she stopped by twice once to feed our pups and later to give meds and a bedtime potty break - sent us texts and pics to let us know how it was going and left us actual pictures with a detailed note how the visits went .. Dogs loved her... Will definitely use her again, I feel very comfortable Carole taking care of our beloved pups!!!
Carole once again gave my dog lots of quality time! My neighbors comment on what a great job she is doing. You can feel at ease knowing she is taking good care of your dog. Also wonderful that she can sometimes take last minute trip requests, like this one! Thank you Carole!
Carole gave my dog so much love and attention. She did not skimp on time but walked and played and left me with wonderful pictures too. She gave her a bedtime visit and early morning because we were away overnight. I appreciated that she was careful with other dogs in the neighborhood because she didn't know if they were friendly with each other or not. I think my dog loved having her visit and I would feel at ease having her again.
Carole was Awesome! She was so quick to respond and answer all my questions, and best of all she was so good with my cat Chev… she showed him so much love and affection as if he was her own cat... He loves her! She’s also a great photographer! Thank you for all your help and for the adorable pictures!!! 
I have and elderly dog who requires a lot of care and time. Carole was more than willing to undertake her care, as well as the other 4 dogs in my home! Carole was great with them and made sure that each pet received some special time each day - perhaps a walk, a massage, or play time. Carole also contacted me each day to update me - especially regarding my older pet. I am so grateful to have found her and will definitely ask for her help in the future. Carole is amazing and provides quality care when pet owners are unable to be at home. I highly recommend her - she is the best. Susan P. - Barrington, Illinois
Carole was awesome! From the beggining, she responded quickly to all of my requests and questions. She did a great job! She sent pictures of her visits and left detailed visit notes. I highly recommend her!
Carole is awesome. Very professional and I felt my dogs were in competent hands. I entrusted her with my two dogs as well as two of my clients dogs while I attended a family wedding. I loved the text updates and pictures as well. I would not hesitate to use her again for pet sitting and refer her to my clients as well.
Carol T is incredible!! We left for vacation knowing she would like excellent care of the 2 girls. We received daily updates via text message from her. We are so grateful to have her in our life, she makes leaving for vacation so much easier knowing we have peace of mind while she stays at the house. We will use her again! Thanks Carol T!
Another happy visit for our pets by Carole. Carole is always so loving and kind to our animals. She is very thorough in her communication with us while we are away. Thank you so much for watching Louie, Miles, and Peanut.
Carole was a dream to work with - and eased my mind about leaving my dogs for the weekend. She sent me periodic text updates and pictures so I knew they were safe and having a blast!
We had a fabulous experience with Carole. After we interviewed her we were confident she would take good care of our dogs and be respectful to our home while we were out of the country. We have a 2 year old energetic Golden. Carole walked him everyday in sub-zero weather even though we usually just let him out in the back yard. That is dedication!! Our other dog is 13 years old and had been recently diagnosed with a serious heart problem. She gets very stressed when we travel and usually wont eat while we are gone. I was very nervous to leave her. Carole sent adorable pictures and videos while we were gone which provided definitive proof that they were having more fun then we were.
The dogs were happy the house was spotless and we have already booked Carole for a 10 day trip in November. I have referred her to many close friends.
She is the best!!
Carole was an absolute life saver and amazing pet sitter! She watched our two dogs and cat while we were on vacation for 10 days. We didn't know Carole prior to finding her on this website. We were blown away by our experience with her as a service provider.

We were in a bind and needed someone to watch our pets. We honestly had concerns about a total stranger staying in our home and watching our precious animals . We treat our animals like family and want only the best for them. Carole provided that environment. She was so wonderful! She is extremely professional and treats dog sitting very seriously. We were impressed with her attention to detail. She kept daily documentation about our pets and their day to day activities. She was available at all times through email, text, or cell phone while we were away. We were able to reach her at a moments notice. She provided daily updates and even sent pictures of our little friends. She also played with the dogs and gave them plenty of exercise. We were able to enjoy our trip because of Carole.

She fed our dogs, walked them 3X a day, and stayed in our guest room with out pets. She also played with the pets and gave them plenty of exercise. She was attentive, organized, professional, and a true animal lover.

We will definitely hire Carole for every trip in the future!
