My name is Michelle Merger – proud owner and pet sitter at Paw Princess. I am committed to providing personalized, reliable care for your pets in the comfort of your home. It is important to have someone trustworthy come into your home, as well as understand the importance of the love and care needed for your pets. My goal is to replicate the daily routine that you have with them to ensure a happy time away for everyone. I have been pet sitting since 2007 and am proud to have over 80 satisfied clients in the North Pinellas area.

Contact me to schedule a complimentary consultation to see if Paw Princess is right for your pet. During this meet and greet time with you and your pet, we will discuss your pet’s needs, likes and dislikes, and how to keep them happy and healthy while you are away. During this time, we will also complete some simple paperwork, collect pet information and any important instructions, and obtain a door entry key.

We were very pleased with the care provided by Paw Princess.  The pet sitter showed real concern for the well-being of our cats.  I got detailed text messages after each visit, which put our minds at ease while we were gone. We had an initial meet and greet where the services to be provided were completely covered. I was impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail. The price was outstanding for the services provided. Without a doubt I will take advantage of Paw Princess services for our future vacations and trips.

Michelle is awesome! I can’t recommend Paw Princess highly enough. Professional, punctual, consistent and wonderful with our pets. Recently, I came home from work at the time of day that Michelle or Stephanie usually come by for their daily visit with our two dogs, they were so excited to hear the door open and then I could literally see them be disappointed it was me and not them. Ten minutes later Michelle walked in and they bounded for the door for their daily play time. Our boys obviously love them and that is more than enough for us.

Add me to the list of Michelle’s happy clients! She did an outstanding job of taking care of my three pooches during the week of my recent surgery and recovery. Because I was at home for part of the time, I was able to see firsthand how beautifully Michelle interacted with my dogs. It was obvious that she cares for my furry family members almost as much as I do … and the feeling seems to be mutual! Tails wagged whenever Michelle showed up! She always took time with each dog to make sure that they had plenty of water, food, exercise and TLC. While I was recovering, I also had the chance to get to know Michelle and discovered that in addition to being conscientious and reliable, she is also very positive, personable and has a strong work ethic. I will not hesitate to entrust her with the care of my babies in the future and have complete confidence they will be given the best of care. Highly recommended!
