  2. Rachel, "Lefty, and Veruca", Cardiff, CA
    Testimonial " During the recent fires, my family and I were on vacation in Florida, I was so concerned not only about my animals but also my home. Jolynn and her husband Rich went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and keep me apprised of the situation back at home. Not only did Jolynn evacuate my kitties, she and Rich took care of my home, taking personal items I asked her to take incase the fires reached us. Fortunately, the fires never reached our home, we felt confident enough to stay in Florida knowing Jolynn would call if anything changed. I was very apprehensive about leaving my cats with anyone because the last time I went out of town one of my cats ran away and was missing for six days. After the care Jolynn and Rich took of my cats, my home, and my sanity during such a stressful time, I will use her every time I am away and would recommend her to anyone who has animals in need of care! Not just anyone could have given me the confidence and reassurance that Jolynn did during the fires (and with an escape artist kitty) I was so happy to have her there to reassure me. I'm happy to report that our home and our animals are safe and sound!! THANKS AGAIN!!

  3. Jim Miller and "Baxter", Carlsbad, CA
    Testimonial " My little guy, Baxter, gets loving and competent care from Circle of Friends. Additionally with my sporadic and hectic schedule I can rely on service being available when i need it-- even on very short notice. Most importantly I have peace of mind when he is in their care."
    Jim Miller and "Baxter", Carlsbad, CA
  4. "JJ & Bear"
    Testimonial " Circle of Friends is an amazing company with a wonderful owner, Jolynn Collins. We began using Circle of Friends in November after we adopted two adult Labradors, Bear and J.J. We had plans to travel over the holidays and quickly realized that we needed to find a quality pet sitter to take care of our new 4-legged friends. As soon as we met Jolynn we knew she was the perfect choice! She is a “natural” with animals and we felt safe and comfortable leaving our dogs in her care. She took great care of Bear and JJ, sent regular e-mail updates, and called us with any problems. We would highly recommend Jolynn Collins and her Circle of Friends business to anyone looking for a kind, loving, experienced, and dependable pet sitter and I know Bear and J.J. would both agree! "

  5. Andrea and "Reecie", Oceanside, CA
    Testimonial " I just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of Reecie while I was away. I was lucky to have been able to go home and I'm lucky to have you to contact to take care of Reecie! If anyone ever asks me if I know of anyone who can pet sit for them, I'll definitely give them your information!"
    Andrea and "Reecie", Oceanside, CA
  6. Pat, Gary and "Abbie" Korsmeier, Vista, CA
    Testimonial We want to thank you again for your care of our pup, Abbie, while we were away recently. As with many other people, she is a special member of our family, and we worried about having her cared for by someone other than a family member. However, you were able to reassure us and did a wonderful job of meeting the needs of our Diva. The loving care you gave her is greatly appreciated. Not only did Abbie get excellent care & and loving attention but, we also were very comfortable knowing you were in our home every day making her feel secure while her family was away. Your background and skills also were beneficial in the event Miss Abbie had a medical issue (those severe bee sting reactions). You also kept us well informed via e-mails and cell phone. As you can see, Abbie is still watching for you. Continued good luck with your business; your care is excellent.

    Testimonial "Circle of Friends provided us worry-free time away from home. Our dog, Mandy, was cared for, exercised, fed and played with, just as if we had been at home with her. Jolynn provided updates by email and we have come home from travel to find both the house and the dog is tip-top condition."

MEET THE TEAM
Jolynn Collins 
Minny Collins was our Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie).  Jolynn rescued her from her 4th owner by the time she was already 1 year old.  She suffered from severe fear aggression, separation anxiety, and was not socialized properly. Jolynn was working as an animal control officer at the shelter she was given to and her temperament did not pass to be adoptable.  With diligent training Minny has became a great loyal girl. Jolynn learned from Minny by staying persistent and trying to deeply understand animal behavior in order to help ease her anxiety and fears.  Some dogs are born with anxieties in which can be helped through proper treatment and training but, they are unique so understanding.  WHY is key to any behavioral issues.  We will have more information regarding behavioral issues on the upoming behavior page of our Website! Also, please feel free to review and post any experiences or concerns on our forum as many pet owners have experienced similar situations!
