Interview with Jeanne Crockett,
owner of Crockett’s Critter Care
Who will be caring for my pet?

My personally trained staff and I will be responsible for your pet’s care. I have over 30 years of successfully managing dogs, cats, and horses. Plus, I am a Certified Pet Sitter, through Pet Sitter’s International. I have also been trained in Pet First Aid and CPR. I am the first Fear Free Certified Professional in New Bern and the First Fear Free Certified Pet Sitter in NC. But most of all, I love animals and I feel it is a privilege to be entrusted with the care of my clients’ pets.

My team have been carefully chosen and then trained by me to ensure that they provide the same exemplary care that I give to all of the pets entrusted to us.

Crockett’s Critter Care is proud to be FetchFind Approved! Using science-based, up-to-date content developed by nationally known pet industry experts, the FetchFind Monthly Pro program ensures that all of our employees are trained with the same consistently high standards from the minute they join our team. This means you can rest assured that your beloved pets are receiving the best care possible from our knowledgeable, confident, and compassionate staff.

How often do you visit?
Our visits depend on your pet’s needs. Some pets just need a once a day potty break or walk. Other pets require more frequent visits due to their age or health. We will work out a schedule together to determine what is best for you and your pet.
Do you offer training?

I am not a trainer but I am experienced in successfully training my own pets and have taken many courses in behavior modification for both dogs and cats. Getting your dog to walk comfortably on a leash or resolving your cat’s litter box issues, I can help you with that.

Do you care for older pets?
They have a special place in my heart. I have cared for my own pets in their senior years with the ailments that come with age. And I have helped many clients care for their elderly pets. These devoted friends deserve a gentle touch in their later years and my team and I can provide that.
How do we get started?
We will come to your home to visit your pet. It is important that both you and your pet are comfortable with us. Once we’ve established a starting rapport, we’ll identify your specific needs and work out a schedule that will make both of you happy.


Service Areas: New Bern, Derby Park, Greenbrier, River Bend, & Trent Woods.
A small additional charge is added for Taberna, Carolina Colours, Brice's Creek, & James City.

2021 Progress Report

When I started my pet sitting business, my dream was to be the “best” pet sitter I could be. I launched my business during the 2009 recession on a shoestring budget. I had no experience running a business, a lifetime of learning about pets, and boatload of hope. I...
