Through the years of owning and operating Coddled Critters Professional Pet Services, I realize I have created a unique spot for myself.  Senior pets seem to be my specialty. That’s not to say we don’t have plenty of youngsters and adults, but certainly more seniors, both dogs and cats.  I have lots of compassion for these creatures.

Me and my pets

Me with Pookie the Pomeranian and Prissy the Ocicat

Thank you for visiting our site.  My name is Elaine Alito and I am the owner and operator of Coddled Critters Professional Pet Services.  I started this pet services company in 2009 after early retirement from a local corporation and have never looked back.  Coddled Critters Professional Pet Services offers daily dog walking, pet sitting/vacation care, dog boarding, cat care, small caged animal care and so much more.  See all of our services here.   Our goal is to be flexible, so if you have a need that isn’t listed, contact me and we can talk about your requirements and how we can meet them.

I am and will always remain a solo pet sitter.  I believe it’s important for you to know who is coming in and out of your home and at Coddled Critters Professional Pet Services, you know it will always be me.  For your peace of mind, I do have an equally qualified pet sitter to be my backup in the event of an emergency.

I am a native Floridian, born and raised in Inverness, Florida and have lived in Pinellas County, Florida since the mid 1980’s.  I think being a native helps me understand all of our weather conditions in order to maintain the health and safety of your pets when outside, especially during our long summer months.

I am certified in Pet First Aid and CPR and turned my lifelong care and love for pets into a new and rewarding career as a professional pet sitter.  

I look forward to meeting you and your beloved pet.
