OUR HISTORY

Dana Miller wanted to make a difference for pets in her community and started The Pet Nanny, LLC as a solo sitter in June 2014. The care and keeping of pets and animals is a life-long passion of hers. She desired to partner with pet owners by allowing them the freedom to be away from home, worry free. Dana believes that peace of mind for pet owners and the treasured members of their home are of utmost importance. Through referrals from clients, the business quickly grew and in order to accommodate all client requests, The Pet Nanny, LLC became a team! The company now provides service 365/24/7! The Pet Nanny, LLC continues to grow mostly by word-of-mouth and is honored by client referrals which vouch to the authenticity, integrity and quality of care provided by the team. The Pet Nanny, LLC team is committed to providing pets with personalized, warm and friendly care while in the comfort of their own home.
