The team members at Comfy Creatures come from all walks of life; many work or have worked in other pet-related fields, so the experience among the group is vast and continues to expand. All members are subject to a thorough screening, which includes a comprehensive background check, and work & personal reference checks.  Regardless of past experience, all sitters must meet many pet care specific criteria, including pet first aid certification every 2 years.

Nadine has been giving – and receiving – love as a member of the team since 2010, providing care in Livonia, Plymouth & parts of Northville, MI

There is a special bond and fondness that develops between a pet and their Comfy Creatures pet sitter.  Casey of Plymouth, MI is a huge fan of her sitter, Nadine, as depicted in this loving photo!  Most sitters remain a member of the team for many years (the longest so far is 16 years!).  It’s that kind of dedication and devotion that sets Comfy Creatures sitters above the rest.

Wally 001
When he’s not caring for client pets, which he’s been doing for Comfy Creatures since 2010 in Livonia & Farmington, MI, Wally loves spending time with his sweet girl, Corona.

Wally has had dogs and cats in his life for approximately 30 years.  He gained even more pet care experience while raising his children, as he helped care for their hermit crabs, fish and a rabbit :)   Wally truly enjoys walking and loves being outside, especially during the warmer months.  He says, “I also enjoy how each dog greets me when I arrive at their kingdom, and how excited they are for their visit.”

Paula
