“I founded Bad to the Bone Pet Care in 2014 to chase my dream of working with animals. It is my goal for our team to not only be the best pet sitters you can imagine, but for us to become a part of your family. Since 2014, I have grown an award winning team of in-home pet care professionals across Northeast and Central Florida and intend to keep growing our reach across the entire Southeast. Aside from my passion for animals, my next greatest love is traveling. To combine my passions, I actually travel all over the United States providing traveling pet sitting while managing our team remotely, although I call the Riverside area of Jacksonville home.”

“Hello! My name is Jacinda. I am currently a vet tech and love to help animals! As seen in my profile picture, I have an Australian Shepherd puppy named Po. When you are away, I enjoy taking care of and making the fur babies feel safe and secure. I know how nerve-wracking it is to leave them behind while you’re either on vacation or an emergency arises, and that is why I am here to help. Presently, I am in college for my license being a veterinarian technician. I just started in May of 2019, and so far, it’s going great! Some of my favorite hobbies are: going to the beach, hanging out with friends and family, and just chilling at home with my husband and puppy.”

When you book with me your four- legged companion becomes one of my own and stays in my home! First we will do a meet and greet with your fur baby and allow them to feel secure in the environment and around my fur companions( I have a 14 year old yorkie named Cody and a 3 year old mutt named Autumn), once we have established everyone is tail wagging we can schedule the slumber paw party! Please make sure to have their own bowls/food/toys(especially if they have a favorite one) blanket and any medications or special requirements! I am dedicated to all my fur guest and ensure they get all the attention, play time, love, snuggles and kisses. For this reason I can only take 2 at a time and they must love being around a child, in good health, well- mannered, house trained, and neutered. I am registered with the nearest 24 hour vet but will try to contact yours first should your pet all of a sudden become ill. Rest assure your four- legged companion is around the best care, I have( 8 )years background being in a Veterinarian Setting, (3) years groomer and currently run my own business as a Gourmet Dog Bakery Bark n Bake( yes they will be pampered).
