IMG_3295Amber and her team are the absolute best! I have used the “bigger” companies in the past and there is no comparison to the care that she she shows to her animal clients. Hailey (our rescue dog) can’t wait to see Amber. From the minute Amber gets out of her car she can’t get in the house soon enough. I truly believe on the days that Pet Protege doesn’t come Hailey misses her belly rubs & walks with them We have been using Pet Protege for 1.5 years almost on a weekly basis and NEVER had an issue. They are the most dependable, honest, dedicated and caring people I have EVER met! – Jessica H. (Waxhaw, NC)

IMG_7475We are totally thrilled we found Amber and her Team at Pet Protégé to care for our English Springer Spaniels. We feel very fortunate to have such loving, caring and professional people come into our home to give them hugs and playtime, along with feeding and walking on their normal schedules. Amber and her Team go way beyond “the call of duty” in caring for our Springers, and have exceeded our expectations over and over again. The daily logs are priceless, and the updates during the day are so comforting to us knowing that Deuce and Precious are happy with their caregivers. We may be a little over-protective of our Springers, and would not let just anyone care for our Babies. We feel like we have found the Perfect Team with Pet Protégé and highly recommend them to anyone in need of a pet-sitter.-Pam & Reggie K. (Lancaster, SC)

Amber is someone I cannot brag enough about. She has been caring for me and my animals during my last semester in nursing school. My sanity remains due to her consistent care and professional service. I believe it was the first week I had her walk my dogs and a picture frame with all three of their precious faces were sitting on the counter when I returned. Amber definitely goes the extra mile. One day I was sick and she even brought me chicken noodle soup. I have moved back to California, and I cannot express how much we ALL miss her every day. Thanks Amber… -Heather K. (Charlotte, NC)

We love to travel, but leaving our pets has always stopped us from going until we found Pet Protégé. We are so comfortable leaving our animals under their care that we have no worries. Amber keeps us posted with emails, texts and pictures of each of our pets every time she visits. It feels like we are right there with them. She is always on time and takes time with each pet. We are so thankful we learned about this great pet sitting service and we highly recommend Pet Protégé. Once we return there is an entire itinerary of everything that was done and the time it happened. Thank you keep up the great work!!! Joe J. (Charlotte, NC)IMG_3976

I had the pleasure of having Amber care for my beloved dog,Tattoo, while we were on vacation in August and I would like to share our story.Tattoo is almost 13 years old and has severe physical disabilities. We had never left Tattoo behind when going on vacation, so I was a little nervous, however, Amber quickly made us feel very comfortable that everything would be fine. Amber visited our home a few days before our trip in order to meet Tattoo and talk with us about his care. She was very thorough and patient, even with the VERY LONG list of instructions I had for her regarding Tattoo’s feeding, medication, outside time, and general habits. It was immediately evident that Amber has a huge amount of compassion for animals. On the first evening of our trip, Tattoo decided not to cooperate with Amber when she tried to pick him up to go outside. It turns out, Tattoo was just very freaked out about the thunderstorm that was moving in at the time. Amber was very patient and even sat with Tattoo until he finally decided to cooperate. As promised, Amber sent updates via text every time she made a visit to our house to let us know how our little guy was doing. She even included photos, which our kids really loved! When we returned home, we found a detailed list of each visit Amber made and a beautiful, framed photo of Tattoo. We could not have been happier with how everything went while we were away. Amber is one of those special people that truly understands the bond that pet owners have with their animals. I highly recommend her services and is the best in Charlotte pet sitting!!! – Anita D.

I would like to share a story with you:

My 2 pitbull/lab/sheppard mix dogs have been kicked out of 3 kennels so I can only have people come over to feed them when I go away. The friends and neighbors that have helped me out in the past always feel bad because “Cash” my shy dog will not eat. Amber took care of my dogs for 3 days and did an unbelievable job! They were happy and shiny (she brushed them more than I do). When I came home there was a log of the date/times she was there, what they ate and when and the activities they did together. She even took pictures of them 🙂 I would highly recommend Amber to take care of your animals anytime. I will use her every time I go somewhere. – Dori L. (Charlotte, NC)

If you ever need a pet sitter, I HIGHLY recommend Amber Klein, owner of Pet Protege. She gave such special attention and love to Mr. Bean and Bailey while we were on vacation for 12 days. We came home to find a detailed note of what they did each day, picture of our sweet babies and a note too! We just cannot thank Amber enough for the special care she gave to them while we were gone. It was one less thing to worry about while being out of town. THANK YOU Amber, you are the best!! – Lynn F. (Charlotte, NC)

Thanks so much for taking care of Max while we were gone. Everything was great. Madelyn LOVED the picture and note! She has found the “perfect place” for it. We will definitely give you a call in the future if we need help with Max. Thanks again for all your help with Max and our house while we were gone! – Shelly T. (Waxhaw, NC)

By far the BEST care our dogs have ever received when taken care of by someone other than ourselves. When we usually have to go on trips our 2 dogs, a 4 yr old female chocolate lab and 9 yr old male 1/2 black lab 1/2 German Sheppard mix, the neighbors usually help us out (We all have animals and help each other out all the time). However they could only help for limited times for this go around.
After hearing about Pet Protégé from a friend of mine about the great service she experienced with her 2 Pit Bull mixed dogs I had to give Amber a call. During the consultation both dogs took to her right away.
The detail to the dog’s care, and our needs as well, was well beyond our expectations. Detailed daily logs, daily brushings, play time, keeping in touch with our neighbors and pictures of the dogs sent to us on our phones while we were gone. All this just made our trip more enjoyable when we knew our pups were being so well cared for.
Amber was very attentive to the needs of our dogs and spoiled them rotten. The dogs usually pout for a day or two when we return from leaving for a trip, however this what not the case this time. They were both well cared for, shining coats and happy smiles. Amber even vacuumed up loose dog hair around the area where the dogs hang out and dried the dogs off really well after they got wet one rainy day. We now also have 2 beautiful framed photos of our babies to have as keepsakes that Amber gave us.
The care our dogs received shows the level of passion that Amber has to take care of your pets as she would her own. We HIGHLY recommend you hire Pet Protégé to take care of your pets. We will definitely be in touch with Pet Protégé again. Our dogs miss her already! – Christy H. (Charlotte, NC)

Everything was done to my expectations and Bud was really transformed by your attention. You definitely have a gift. I will definitely recommend you to any friends in need of a sitter. Thanks again for your great care of Bud, definitely put my mind at ease knowing that she was in your care. – Caren M. (Charlotte, NC)

Amber and her team do a wonderful job taking care of our Rocky. It is nice to know he is in good hands when we are not home. I love that they send us videos and pictures of him when they are out with him. I trust them to make sure he is happy and loved when we are not there to do it. Amber has a great way with animals and a sweetness that our Rocky LOVES!!! I would recommend Pet Protege to all dog owners that want to make sure their pet receives that extra special love and care when they are not home.Vanessa & Cheyne S.IMG_4586

Pet Protégé always goes above and beyond to help us around hectic work travel schedules. Our dogs go absolutely crazy when I say “amber is coming”. They are so happy with her which makes us happy! I can’t say enough about this service and Amber’s commitment to only provide the best! – Rebecca G. (Charlotte, NC)IMG_2705
