“It doesn’t take being with Gina for very long before you see her love for animals. We used her at the last minute to watch our Shih Tzu, Toby. She did a great job. Previously, she had come to our house for a Meet and Greet, so Toby would know her. He warmed to her in no time. A great service and peace of mind.”
“Cannot give Gina Bullock and The Pet Nanny a big enough recommendation. She takes such good care of our Frenchies and Boston when we travel and they love her. Feel so much better having someone in the home with them rather than knowing they’re caged in a kennel somewhere. They’re happy, I’m happy… yay Gina! Lakeland really needed you!”
“Gina Bullock rocks! My Pomeranian adores her. Gina’s reliable, professional, and caring, and it’s great to know that she’ll be there for my Zeus when I can’t be there. Just made yet another reservation with her a few minutes ago. I don’t know what I’d do without her!”
“Gina is absolutely the best when it comes to our pets! We have 3 dogs; 2 German Shepherds and a Pekingese and they just love Gina! She is always quick to respond whenever I call, whether it is a change in our schedule for the week or if she is needed for overnight visits. I would highly recommend The Pet Nanny to anyone looking for someone who would love your animal(s) just as much as you do! Thanks so much Gina for all you do for us and so many around Polk county!!!”
