Doggie Latchkey

Providing award-winning pet sitting services throughout Michigan

We now refer to our Doggie Latchkey sitters as Uncle Marc and Aunt Kat. After relocating from another state for a very demanding job Doggie Latchkey came to the rescue with Marc and Kat. They have gone beyond the call of standard duty for our furry children. Our dogs Jake and Sammi love them so much! They even took Sammi to doggie emergency when she got into things she should not have before the sitter arrived. To say that “Uncle Marc and Aunt Kat” give us comfort when we have to be gone is an understatement. Thank you Doggie Latchkey!!!

We’ve been using Doggie Latchkey for several years, every day. Our dog is our only child and we take his care very seriously. DLK is top notch! Denise is very detail oriented and everything runs like clockwork. We love her employees and trust them implicitly. Highly recommend!!!!!!!

We are so thankful for your consistency and kindness to us and to Larry. He is a pretty needy dog and I know he loves being with Phil. We always know he is in good hands with Phil and we feel comfortable having him train and take care of Larry. He is always open to fielding questions and suggestions and is so kind in his response. We hope that you and your family had a great Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year! Thanks again for everything!

Exceptional service, I would rate Doggie Latchkey much higher if it were possible. Upon my first meeting with Denise, I felt very comfortable leaving my dogs in her care. While on vacation for 5 days, she sent me texts, photos and updates consistently. I was extremely impressed with her attention to detail. When I arrived home, my dogs were happy, healthy, just glowing. Not only did she provide my dogs with lots of love, attention and medications for my senior dog she took care of our dry cleaning, mail, lights etc. I didn’t have to worry about timing my flights according to boarding drop off and pickup times. I am absolutely thrilled that I found her. I have already booked Doggie Latchkey for an upcoming trip and will continue to use their service. Great, Great Service, I highly recommend Doggie Latchkey!!!!!!!

Dianne was wonderful. It was easier to go on vacation knowing someone was watching over “the kids”. My meeting with Dianne put me at ease, it was obvious she loved caring for cats. Molly does not come out when strangers are in the house, yet Dianne still managed to make a sighting. I think Max is still waiting for Dianne to come through the door to play with him. It was also nice knowing someone was checking on the house. I will without doubt use Doggie Latchkey in the future.

My husband and I were so pleased with your services. Jen watched my son’s 2 cats for a week. She gave us twice daily updates with pictures and descriptions of what they were up too. We felt totally comfortable leaving them knowing they were in great hands. We highly recommend your service to anyone needing their animals watched in the comfort of their home. We plan to use your services for our dogs and cats again very soon.

Thanks for making our vacation animal stress free!

We had Jennifer come out for the meet and greet and had a very nice visit. Despite the size of our 9 month old Great Dane puppy, Jennifer wasn’t nervous or overly confident. She was very relaxed and Kona was very accepting of her! In fact, Kona immediately started bring her toys to Jennifer and tried to climb up in her lap! Jennifer was very good about note taking and going over the paperwork for her upcoming visit. The reason we needed a sitter was because we were getting married and all of our usual family sitters, were obviously going to be busy. We wanted to be sure that we had someone we trusted to stay at home with her and keep her comfortable in her own surroundings.

Our minds were completely at ease the day of the wedding…well, as far as the pup went! 🙂 Jennifer left us a report card and a little note card also with updates on everything they did. And she even gave in to our little bell-ringer every time that she rang the bell to go outside! (even when she just wanted to go out and play). Jennifer spent the night and even let Kona sleep with (probably more like ‘on’ her) all night!

We could tell that she had been well played with because she was pretty tuckered out, although happy, when we got home the day after!

Jennifer was VERY accomodating to our situation and needs, as well as Kona’s needs. We will be using Doggie Latchkey and specifically Jennifer, anytime that we are in need of a sitter or extra walk, etc.!!

Thank you Doggie Latchkey and Jennifer!!!!!

After three weeks in a new home, we had to make a last minute trip out of state. Our dogs were still adjusting to their new surroundings and we didn’t want to board them and send them to another new place. Doggie Latchkey was the perfect fit. Jennifer was absolutely wonderful! She kept us completely informed about our dogs through text messages and pictures! Our spoiled babies always sleep with us and Jennifer let them sleep with her even lifting our arthritic, 16 year old cocker spaniel on the bed since he’s unable to jump up on the bed anymore. We have always used family and neighbors to care for our dogs while we were gone, I feel our dogs were much happier and more comfortable with Jennifer taking care of them. I can’t thank Doggie Latchkey enough for the fantastic service 🙂

I could not possibly be more thrilled with Doggie Latchkey. They provide great care and are the most responsive team I can think of. Whether it’s needing a last minute walk for a late night at the office or much needed dinner out, Denise always comes through. I’ve used both the walking services and training services since my puppy Pepper was 3 months old and I rave about both: the trainer, Jen, has already managed to mellow out my dog in only a few sessions (we still have a ways to go, but I’m amazed!) and our regular walker, Stacy, gives great updates on Pepper’s progress and reinforces all of Jen’s great lessons. I feel like I have the ultimate dog swat team!
