"Professional, diligent, and most importantly, loving"

Jeanne and her crew of critter caretakers make leaving my pet behind much easier. They give me peace of mind knowing my furry friend is in good hands with the photos and updates I get during my time away. They are professional, diligent, and most importantly, loving toward my pet as if it was their own. Overall, some of the best pet care I have received.

"Pet Whisperer"

We call Jeanne the “pet whisperer”. I don’t know how she does it (could it be the hot dogs??) but our dogs love her! She truly knows what our dogs are thinking and what they need and they actually listen to her! Jeanne is extremely reliable and trustworthy. I wish she would expand her business to include teenagers. 🙂

We Love Animals

I have volunteered with local rescue groups and have taken a few rescues into my home temporarily until they moved into my heart permanently. As my awareness grew, I advocated for better animal welfare laws and more humane animal treatment. After a lifetime in the corporate world, I decided it was time for me to put my passion to work and created Crockett’s Critter Care.

This is a calling I take very seriously. I strive to be your trusted partner in pet care. Your pet has a special place in your heart and your life. My duty is to care for them the way you would if you could. I’ve taken my passion and earned the designations to ensure your confidence. I actively pursue continued education in pet sitting, dog walking, Fear Free training, and dog training with a special emphasis in reactive dogs.

Every reactive dog trainer I have met tells the same story – we have a reactive dog! We know the right training is the solution to building an unbreakable bond with your companion. What Davy and I experienced in our training was a game changer. I was so excited by our results that I pursued the necessary credentials to become a Canine Reactivity Specialist to share this program with you.

As the owner of Crockett’s Critter Care, I want you to know that caring for your pet is my business and my pleasure. Each and every pet I care for has their own personality from a laid back senior hound who takes a sedate stroll to a frisky kitten who needs play time. You can reach out to me directly with any question, compliment, or concern you have about the care of your pet. Contact me so that we can talk about your pet and their special needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Interview with Jeanne Crockett, owner of Crockett’s Critter Care

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.

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.

Yes. I am a Fear Free Certified Animal Trainer – specializing in reactive dog training.

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.
