It's bee hard to find what I consider adequate care for my pup when I'm away. I have left my beloved on year-old JRT with Darlene and Tom twice now, and he had a great time in their home, playing with the other pups and learning to take direction from others. It's obvious that Darlene and Tom are careful, calm and affectionate with the animals, that they take your concerns seriously, and that what they are doing matters to them as much as it does to you. I highly recommend them and plan for my little guy to visit often!

We have left our dog, Chelsea, who is only one year old with Darlene & Tom on a few occasions and have been extremely pleased with their service. You can see and feel how much they love not just our dog, but ??all? dogs and want to care for them. Every time we pick her up she is happy, playful and content. It is such a comfort to know she is being cared for, played with and loved while we are away. We have also used their dog walking service during lunchtime and we couldn??t be happier with how she is taken care of. If you love your pet, there is no better place to leave them when you are away. We highly recommend Darlene and Tom and will use and trust only them to care for our dog.

Leaving our Pet Nina with Darlene's Pet Sitting Service was the best
decision my husband and I ever made! Being able to go on vacation and have
peace of mind knowing our dog will be in good hands was a blessing! Darlene
is very professional, knowledgeable and her love for dogs exudes when she
comes to meet your cherished pet! Nina's designated sitter Gino took
excellent care of Nina while we were away and gave her the love and care she
required in our absence! I will definitely use Darlene's Pet Service again
and will highly recommended her business to all pet owners I know!

We are the overindulgent parents of a six month old Weimaraner named Obie. After reviewing all of the boarding options in the area, we decided to try Aunt Darlene's. We met with Darlene and Gino and were able to tour the house where Obie would be staying and were so impressed with Gino and his family. We've boarded Obie with Gino twice now. On both occasions, he comes home happy and tired. He never seems overly excited to leave and the last time we picked him up, he gave Gino kisses before we left. Gino is so amazing, with the puppy and with my constanty texting to make sure all was well. We are grateful to have found someone we trust and Obie likes -- it's great peace of mind when you need to leave town. I'd recommend Gino to anyone!

I just picked up my dog from Gino's house. She had a wonderful time! She played with the other dogs and met lots of new friends. It was great to know she was so well cared for while we were away! I will definitely be using this service again, and would recommend Aunt Darlene's to anyone! THANK YOU!

Darlene and Tom and Crystle have been sitting for our beagle Riley for years. He was an adopted rescue with many issues and they treat him with such TLC...probably more than we do. They are flexible with our work schedules and come at the last minute if we need them. It is such a comfort knowing Riley is in their care especially if we are away. He gets to stay home where he does best and we never have to worry. We couldn't do it without them.
Much Appreciation to Aunt Darlene's.

Aunt Darlene's has been a life saver for us. We have 2 small papillons and one is a puppy mill rescue. Whenever we went away it broke our hearts to put them in a kennel especially the rescue, since he spent 7+ years in a cage without contact, except to breed. Their home is like your own and they love your pet like their own. Their beautiful 2 dogs, Pebbles nbd Buddy, make all visiting dogs feel welcome and calm.

We can't say enough about how much attention our dogs get and how well they are taken care of. If your pets are part of your family like ours are, then Aunt Darlene's Pet Sitting is the best service to use.

We hope they are around for a long time. We recommend them to anyone who loves and cares about their pet. You cannot find better care anywhere!!!

Thanks Darlene and Tom,

Gayle and Ernie
Teddy and Higgins too!!

Aunt Darlene and Uncle Tom are the BEST.

My husband and I relocated to NJ from Texas a little over a year ago. We had always left our 'bundle of Mini-Daschund joy',Duncan with our beloved family and friends who were able to watch him if we were to go away-and we never worried a BIT about how he was doing because he was in the care of our closest companions who loved him like he was their own.

We had NEVER, EVER boarded Duncan before we moved here and when we realized that we had to do so on our first trips being up here alone I nearly had a panic attack. Not having any recommendations or initially doing deeper research to discover such a service as Aunt Darlene's-we set Duncan up at a doggie/kitty hotel near our house-yes it seemed nice on the outside but the way our dog came back petrified when we picked him up was absolutely heartbreaking. Yes, there are those people that say "dogs are just dogs and that it shouldn't be that big of a deal-they'll get over it", but I am one of those people that consider my dog like a child (there are many that feel the same!) and you'd want nothing but the best for them because they bring so much specialness to your life... and seeing Duncan's reaction when he jumped into my arms after being boarded at the one place made me sick to my stomach.

Many trips and nightmares later I made a serious effort to do better
research and found Aunt Darlene's. I knew something better had to exist-SO TRUE!! All the testimonials on her page say everything perfectly about the level of service and love that they provide your pet. We will use no one else as long as we live up here. It says it all when Duncan knows the moment you pull up to Darlene and Tom's house and he is about to jump out of the car to make a run for Darlene,Tom and their two dogs, Buddy and Pebbles. It makes your heart want to burst when I pick him up and to see how he is so happy to see me, but sad to leave them-Duncan seems to go through a slight withdrawl with all the fun he had and now it's back to the boring mommy and daddy. :)

*****HUGE RECOMMENDATION-YOU AND YOUR PET WILL BE SO PLEASED!! Thank you again!

We have never used dog walkers or pet sitters before ?? my brother always took care of our pets when we were away. Well, he recently moved, so we needed someone else. We wanted to find someone who 1. Loves and can handle large dogs and 2. Can diagnose any problems and have the means to take the dog to the vet.
We contacted Aunt Darlene??s Dog Walking and were able to schedule an evaluation at our house at a time convenient to us (very late at night!) - Darlene and Crystle accommodated our challenging work schedules. My husband and I were impressed by how friendly and professionally the evaluation went. Our dog, a hyper 6 year old 85 lb boxer, ran into the kitchen, jumped up and down, and was immediately the center of attention. The price was very reasonable, contact information and care directions were exchanged, and we hired them to take care of our dog for a week.
Not only did Crystle call us that week just to let us know everything was ok, she offered to buy more food for the dog, she fed our turtles, and brought our mail in. When we came back, the house was spotless, and there was a very long and detailed note describing how each day went: how he behaved during each visit, how they played (inside and outside), what Romby ate, how much he drank, what treats were given, how often he went to the bathroom, etc., etc., etc.
I am a perfectionist by nature (aka a control freak), and I could not be happier with how our dog was treated, how much time, love, and attention he was given. We are so glad we found someone who is trustworthy and reliable! We even gave them our house keys for any unexpected dog walking requests.

Darlene has been our loyal pet sitter for the last five years and I must say that sitting our pets is no easy task. We have a turtle, a bird and two rambunctious large dogs. Without fail rain or shine Darlene makes all her appointments. She has done everything from playing / watching with the dogs to shoveling snow so we could get back to the house after vacation. Believe it or not these are not the things that compelled me to write on her behalf.

One of our dogs, Lilu who is a five year old pit mix has come down ill. Lilu has been diagnosed with with a stage two mast cell tumor, in short cancer. We plan on doing everything that we can to get Lilu better but even with Lilu's illness life goes on. Recently we had to go on a trip so of course I called Darlene to dog sit. Normally things go without a hitch but this time there were problems. One of the meds that Lilu must take makes her very thirsty of course this means that Lilu needs to pee a lot more. Twice while we were away Lilu couldn't hold ??it? and she let go all over the living room floor. This wasn't your normal mess either. The excessive water intake made for a tremendous mess. Many other dog sitters may have said no way and left the mess or simply tossed down some newspaper and bailed out on a unpleasant situation but not Darlene. She called me right away, she didn't call to complain she called to make sure that Lilu was ok. Her concern was that Lilu may have lost bladder control due to her illness. Darlene was ready to take Lilu for emergency care. I explained that I think Lilu is ok and that the additional intake of water has caused the mess. Darlene didn't even flinch all she did was ask where the additional towels were so she could clean up the mess. This didn't happen once this happened twice.
Darlene never balked at the situation all she did was make room in her schedule to drop by the house am additional two more times. She did this because she has a good heart and true love of animals. It's no surprise that both of our dogs love her dearly. Darlene shows love to our dogs (and turtles and birds) and professionalism to her clients.

My wife and I do need to travel a lot and with Darlene as our pet sitter we feel confident that everything is well taken care of even when things don't go as planned.

There was even a time a couple of years ago when we locked ourselves out of the house. I called Darlene (who has a key to the house) she dropped everything she was doing and got us in our house.

There's a saying in business that anyone can do a task or sell a product but if you want to be successful you need to be able to come through with service. Darlene is the true definition of that business model.
She's trustworthy and dedicated. She runs her business with her heart and in this particular line of work that's the key to success.
Darlene has my family's 100% trust and gratitude.

It's hard to know where to begin when relating all the good things about Aunt Darlene's. After an initial
"get acquainted" visit and a practice overnight stay, we had no qualms about leaving our dog here for an extended time. Darlene and husband Tom are obviously committed to operating a top-notch dog care business, and they exhibit
a great deal of knowledge about dog behavior and interaction. Boarding a beloved pet for several days can be worrisome, but at Aunt Darlene's one feels as if the pet has been entrusted to long-time friends. The cage-free facilities are very clean with no doggy odor, and the dog comes home smelling clean. Among the available amenities, we especially appreciated the large screened-in porch, the fenced-in yard, and the self-service toy basket. Both Darlene and Tom know how to be pack leaders so that order is maintained among their charges at all times. Darlene and Tom obviously love their work and do everything possible to make their guests comfortable. Traveling for us will now be more care-free knowing our dog is in such good hands.
