"Much more than just a pet sitter"

Jamie not only saw to our pets' needs but also helped resolve food aggression issues between them. She played with them and gave them the attention they craved while we were away. Jamie is much more than just a pet sitter; she is a caregiver

*We know how to handle animal health issues and veterinary emergencies. Lazy Days owner Jamie Hoad is a certified veterinary assistant who successfully completed the Pet First Aid certificate program administered by the American Red Cross. She also has years of professional veterinary assisting experience, holds an equine technology degree, and engages in veterinary continuing education regularly.

*Pet care is our passion, and pet sitting is what we do full-time. This isn’t just a hobby or side gig for us. We stay with our clients’ pets 30-45 minutes each visit so that they get not only the essentials like bathroom breaks and meals but also plenty of playtime and affection.

*Holidays and summertime are often some of the busiest periods of the year—and that goes for your friends and neighbors too. They may not have the time or energy to give your pets the attention they need each day that you’re away, but we certainly do!

*We know the importance of maintaining a low-stress, safe environment for your pets while their favorite people are away from home. We can go over any safety precautions that need to be taken and give you advice on how to reduce stress levels in your dogs and cats.

*We provide care in the setting your pets are most comfortable and familiar with: their home. Keep your pets’ stress levels down while you’re away by letting them remain surrounded in the sights and smells they know. It’s a much better option than your furry friends having to adjust to a strange house or boarding facility.

*We’re happy to provide you with daily updates—through calls, texts, or emails—to let you know how your pets are doing back home.
