Two years ago, when one of our dogs was diagnosed with diabetes, we felt depressed. Not only were we learning how to manage the terrible disease, but suddenly our independence was stifled. Our toy poodle needed, among other things, a feeding and an injection every twelve hours to stay alive--something which seemed difficult due to our busy work schedules. Our vet recommended the services of Pet Nanny Plus, LLC to help take the stress out of a stressful situation. We were initially apprehensive about having someone take care of our dogs while we were at work, since both of our dogs are high maintenance. Not only is one a special needs pet, but the other is very shy with new people. Could someone be as vigilant as we were with the daily injection? Would that same person also be reliable, trustworthy, kind-hearted, and knowledgable? How would our other dog adjust to a stranger in the house? But, and perhaps most importantly, could we ever find someone who cared about the well-being of our two dogs as much as we do?

The answer to all those questions has been Pet Nanny Plus, LLC. During Marilyn's daily visits, she has done hundreds of injections, bonded with our pets, sent us videos and updates while we're away, and truly gone above and beyond in her daily care. Her professionalism and experience with animals is impressive--we have consulted her many times for recommendations about her knowledge of diet and behavior, and we have seen both our dogs (even the shy one!) bond with her as part of their "pack." She is attentive to detail in a way that inspires confidence--she has identified if our dogs are under the weather, contacted us to check on them when she is off the clock, and given them toys and personal attention that make us feel that our dogs are very special to her. She approaches our pets' care in a way that is both passionate about their overall well-being and compassionate to their individual needs. (Knowing how important eating is to a diabetic, she even hand-feeds our dog when he is being "picky" so that he can eat enough to get his injection!) We trust her implicitly, knowing that she always has our pups' best interests at heart, and have recommended her services to many friends and family. Pet Nanny Plus, LLC has given us the freedom of our life back! Knowing that she is coming to spend time with our dogs each day makes leaving them bearable. Marilyn has truly become a part of our family.

As the client coordinator for Macungie Animal Hospital, I am often asked to recommend a pet sitter. It is without reservation that I am able to refer our clients to Pet Nanny Plus, LLC. In addition to dog walking and pet sitting, Marilyn is skilled at administering medication. You will have peace of mind knowing that, in your absence, your pet’s medical needs will not be compromised. She is also able to administer subcutaneous fluids and give insulin injections when prescribed by your veterinarian. Marilyn will also take care of those little things on your to-do list. She will bring in the mail, rotate the lights in your home if you’re away, and even water your plants. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Marilyn for five years. She is extremely professional and trustworthy. Above all, her compassion and sensitivity towards people and animals shines through in everything she does.

For the past 2 ½ years Marilyn, Pet Nanny Plus, LLC has been helping to care for my 2 young dogs. I met Marilyn through a recommendation from my vet and have been very grateful for having her “visit” with my dogs each workday and provide them with exercise and attention. She keeps me informed on their activity, addresses any concerns, and shares dog-related publications. I appreciate that my dogs are in the hands of someone so knowledgeable and reliable. It’s great coming home to dogs that are safe, happy and healthy.

Pet Nanny Plus - Local Pet Sitting ServicesFor the past seven years we had the privilege of Marilyn “Nanny” caring for our Japanese Chin, and our Norwegian Forest Cat. We have complete peace of mind when we are away from home for several days that out girls are well taken care of by “Nanny”. Nanny is compassionate with them knows exactly what they need, is knowledgeable when problems arise and enjoys being with them. Nanny also understands we miss the girls when we are on a trip so she sends a text with a picture. I especially love getting those messages. We highly recommend Marilyn “Nanny” to anyone desiring a compassionate, reliable and loving person to care for their pets.

Marilyn has been visiting my Cavalier Spaniel for the last 3 years. She is extremely dependable and I always feel completely at ease with her in my home and making decisions about the welfare of my dog. I have a sensitive dog that is sometimes nervous in new situations but Marilyn interacts with her in such a gentle loving way. She is very professional and I have recommended her to friends who are always pleased. I have a work schedule that changes month to month and I occasionally need her on short notice. Marilyn is usually able to accommodate my requests. I love coming home and finding her notes about how the visit was. It’s nice to know that if you will be away from home for a long day that you don’t need to worry about your pet. Every dog deserves Marilyn “Nanny”.

Pet Nanny Plus, LLC, has been a gift to me and my cat. After relocating to the area, I needed someone. Marilyn not only fed and played with him, but got our mail and newspaper daily. She also watered my house plants and put out the trash. Great experience and I will continue to use her excellent service. - Cecilia - (Macungie, PA)
