Naples Peaceful Pets

our mission

Naples Peaceful Pets was born from a love of dogs. And then a love of cats. And then horses....and the list goes on from there. We believe that animals have the right to health, happiness and unbounded love, which is why we decided to offer the best and most professional, loving pet care service in Naples Florida.

We provide the highest level of professional, trustworthy, reliable and loving pet services in sunny Southwest Florida. You can rely on us for all of your pet care needs; whether it’s dog walking, feeding, medication administration, overnight stays, concierge taxi services or just plain playtime and cuddles. Located in beautiful Naples, Florida, we understand the unique needs of our local pet community in this special part of the country.


Our commitment to animals is reflected in everything that we do for your furry companions. From our rates, to the way we schedule, to how we communicate with you, and most of all, our loving care of your pets. Our dedication and focus is clear.

Our reputation is built on the health and contentment of your furry friends; our references come in the form of wagging tails, puppy kisses and total trust. Our pet sitters form relationships that make it easy for you to go out, work, travel and be at ease that your pet is utterly comfortable and cared for.  Let us love and care for your pet family as you would while you are away. Join the Naples Peaceful Pets family and experience the peace of mind you and the loving care your pets deserve.



Our Services


daily check ins

Your pets deserve to live in comfort and style, never doubting that all of their needs are met. We are happy to do this when you cannot, with daily check-in visits. Visits can be of differing lengths depending on the needs of your individual pet. Whether it is a quick check in to let them into the yard, or a more comprehensive visit for dog walking, play and meals, we are on the job!


full day visits

For those long days when you just can't get home, let us step in to step them out. These full day visits are multiple check ins that allow your pet to be cared for all day long. Pets, dog walks, meals, play time and medication administration are included with all of our visits, but this option allows you to give your furry friends extra special attention and time to attend to all their needs. 

Overnight stays

When you travel, let us keep your fur-baby company. This provides them with the stability and comfort of their own, natural surroundings, while giving you the freedom to roam. You can rely on us to care for your pet and your home, both over night and during the day. These visits include full day sits if needed!


house sitting

We are happy to take care of your home with pets--or without! You can trust us to see to the care of your most valuable asset, your family home, so that you can travel with ease and comfort. Bonded and insured, we can handle any of your home sitting needs from mail collection, plant watering, or simply waiting for utility services. We will be there, guaranteed! Offered for our pet clients only.


concierge taxi

Sometimes, you just can't get them there and back in time. Let us do the running around for you! We are happy to both drop off and pick up your dog or cat to the pet groomer or veterinarian so that they can look and feel as wonderful as can be.  Please inquire for pricing.

Lori has a delightful ability to know just what my Leo needs. He adores her and the time they spend together, which is such a relief when I have to be away.

If your pet requires more than 3 visits, it is an additional $25 per half-hour.

*If your dog is crated during the day and you are on an extended trip, we suggest our "60 Minute Daily Visit" to ensure optimal health and well being of your pet while you are away. Call for pricing.


This option is for when you are traveling, and your fur baby just cannot come. We will stay at your home overnight to see to the safety and well being of your precious pet. This includes an 8-10 hour stay overnight in your home and one 30-minute midday visit. All basic home sitting services are also included with the overnight stay.

If extra visits are needed throughout the day it is $25 for each additional visit.


If it is socialization with other dogs you are wanting for your furry friend or just a walk in the park, we have several wonderful parks here in Collier County. Let us take them out for a day of play or just a walk on the trail at one of the fabulous parks here in beautiful Naples Florida. The park visit includes, transportation and a one hour stay at the park.

We have been using Lori's pet services for over 6 years. We feel blessed that we found her.
She is an amazing person and an incredible sitter. Great work ethics, we had one sick cat (Gracie) and she would stay over and give her the attention that she needed. Highly recommend her and her company.
We always know our pets are well taken care of and loved when we are gone.

~ Ann and Candace


Lori has been a lifesaver! We hate leaving Kali when we go away and Lori has enabled us to have peace of mind knowing she is in good hands. Lori is very calm, reliable, trustworthy, and Kali really likes her. Kali is a large German shepherd who is not always great with new people or dogs, so she needs a good handler. Lori fits the bill!

~Elaine Falkenberg


Lori has been walking my standard poodle puppy for close to a year. I hired Lori originally because I could not walk Kristi (my dog), for medical reasons. Lori worked with my changing schedule and was always there for me. Now that I am better , I still have Lori come to walk Kristi because she has gotten so attached to Lori and Lori continues to work with and teach her. I would unequivocally recommend Lori for all your pet services needs. She is so professional, compassionate and develops a special bond with the pet.
~Kathy Blackburn


Lori and her team have been taking care of our 2 dogs for about a year now and we couldn’t be happier with her service. She really gets to know our dog’s likes and dislikes and can really read their behavior. Our dogs wait by the door because they know she’s coming at 9AM on the dot for their walk. They love her, even my toy poodle who is such a mama’s boy that he will only walk with me and now he loves walking with Lori! My poodle is also diabetic and she has no problem giving him his morning insulin shot (with treats after!) Lori is also great about last minute walks if I have to stay at work longer. Lori also house sits when we go on vacation and not only are our dogs happy but she takes care of our house too! She’s part of our family and most importantly our fur babies love her.

Have been meaning to write to you for a while, to let you know just how thrilled Bob and I have been to have found you! It is such a joy to know that you and your team really care about the animals and their owners the way you do! My three cats are spoiled rotten. I fuss about leaving them dreadfully. I fuss about if they are eating enough and do they have enough treats. You have totally put my mind at rest. Having engaged your services several times now, we are so much happier going away than we ever have been before. I can’t thank you enough for your kindness, attention to detail, communication and understanding of somewhat paranoid parents of furry children! Thank you again and we look forward to our continuing relationship with Naples Peaceful Pets!

~Diane Linaker


Lori has been an absolute lifesaver! She has been helping us with our boxer Kevin for over five years. As two professionals with unpredictable schedules, she has come through for us time and time again. She is passionate, dependable, accommodating and obviously loves what she does. But the best testimony, to Lori, is the way Kevin runs down the driveway to greet her when he sees her car. He loves her so much! We wholeheartedly recommend Lori and Naples Peaceful Pets for your pet care needs.
