About Us

Hi my name is Lynn Cvitko and I am a dog loving owner and the sole proprietor of Bonez & Katnip Pet Services. Here I am pictured with my 12 year old gal Dana. Established in 2011 my business grows out of the love and respect I have for animals. As a retired social worker in the human relations field for over 15 years I now have the opportunity to direct my abilities, enthusiasm and caring nature towards pet care.

Also, I am an active member of the Burlington Humane Society Pet Therapy Program, Mercy For Animals and People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals. I am committed to continuing education regarding pet care for your pet’s well being and I will always treat your pet as I do my own.

I offer fully bonded and insured pet care services for your pet through PROfur Insurance. I am a member of Pet Sitters International the largest professional and educational pet sitting organization worldwide. I am a graduate of the St. John’s Ambulance CPR and Pet First Aid program and I also have a clear background check certificate.

I understand that one of the hardest parts of any vacation or time away is deciding what to do with your pet and if you travel regularly it can be even more difficult on you and your animal.

Cats and dogs appreciate consistency so when you’re considering finding a dog sitter, a cat sitter, or a dog walker I believe it’s best to provide you and your pet with the same dependable pet sitter or dog walker. That is why I try to accommodate your schedule as best I can and schedule you with the same person every time, if possible.


The Initial Meet & Greet Consultation

Now that you have decided you are interested in using our services it’s time to schedule an initial “meet and greet” consultation. The “meet & greet” is always free of charge and allows you to meet one of our pet sitters or dog walkers and decide if you are comfortable with allowing us into your home and for us to become acquainted with your pet’s routine and detail our services. The “meet & greet” is a compulsory process and reservations will not be confirmed until it has taken place and a pet service or dog walking contract has been signed.
