Nana's Team

Bringing Excellent Care to Your Pets

Here at Nana's, pet sitting and dog walking isn't just a side job. We take caring for your pets seriously. We've been looking after and loving on pets in and around the Charlotte area since 2007 and have a steady, reliable team of well-trained sitters and walkers ready to love on your pets.

Unlike many other pet sitting or dog walking services, Nana's team is trained and remains current in their training through required continuing education. Each sitter and walker undergoes an eight hour, hands-on training on pet care, first aid, CPR, wellness, senior and puppy/kitten care. They renew this training every two years.

In addition, each sitter and each walker and Nana herself, has completed and passed an official background check.

Sharon grew up and lived her whole life in Maine until 1997 when she and her husband moved to Charlotte with their German shepherd, greyhound and cat. “I have always loved animals and especially dogs. I find that through pet sitting I can have as many animals as I want and still not go over the ‘two dogs is enough’ rule set by my husband. I thoroughly enjoy making sure each pet in my care gets the level of attention I want for my own dogs when I travel. I was a customer of Nana's Pet Sitting before I became a pet sitter.”
