Testimonials from our Pet Sitting & Dog Walking Clients

"Amber runs her business impeccably. She is reliable, responsible, and an animal lover to her core. We felt very comfortable leaving our senior cat with cancer in her care while we were gone for 10 days. 10/10 would recommend Lola & Co for your furry friends." -Mary J., 5/2022

"Amber was great!  My cat is quite shy, and doesn’t do well at a boarding facility.  I’m thankful I found Lola & Company.  Great service, and I had a happy cat when I arrived back from my trip." -Bryan C., 5/2022

"Could not be happier with the pet care we received. Amber certainly has the qualifications and passion that the job requires." -J.W., 12/2021

"I'm handicapped and my daughter who normally helps me is in the hospital. My 18 year old cat Molly was sick and needed to get to the vet. I was having a friend help me out, but because of her job she hasn't been able to get here. So I reached out to Lola & Company. Amber is wonderful! In a day's notice she got Molly back and forth to the vet, helped me by doing the litter box, getting my prescriptions out of the mailbox and taking out the trash. Also, the vet forgot to give Amber Molly's medication when she picked her up. Without hesitation, Amber drove back to the vet to get it. If you want someone that cares to take care of your fur babies call Lola & Company!!" -Sheri H., 10/2021

"Amber was so accommodating on such short notice and took such good care of our Ari while we went out of town for family matters. I have already booked her for an upcoming business trip and feel so much better to have Ari at home in her own elements versus a cat condo at a boarding place. Amber sent photos and updates with each visit! Would recommend! A+++" -Carolyn R., 10/2021

"Amber is wonderful with our pets. I don't worry at all when away because I know she will take care of everything for them. She is very professional and thorough. Lola & company is highly recommended!" -Jennifer D., 10/2021


"I’ve known Amber for years. She is very reliable and I trust her inside of my home when I am away. Amber is soft spoken and has a sweet demeanor which is important for nervous pets with anxiety like my pup. I definitely recommend her." -Amber P., 10/2021

"Amber is amazing. I am beyond thankful to have found her. We have a 17 year old senior dog with some special needs & cannot board her. We have been looking forever(unsuccessfully) for someone to come into our home to sit for us while on vacations or weekend trips. After meeting with Amber, I knew I found the right person. She was amazing with our sweet girl. She is very organized & communicates everything with you. Her response time feels instant. My favorite part of this company is the ease of use with the app. She sent us picture updates with a report each visit! We had her coming 5 times a day & she included a detailed visit report every single time. We finally had peace of mind having someone take care of our girl!" -Nicole T., 10/2021


"Amber is a very kind and reliable person and it was comforting knowing our pets were in her care." -Jim D., 8/2021

"Amber has taken care of our pets for several years now. From the initial meet and greet, she has been professional, compassionate and accommodating. There has never been an instance of anything less. Our pets love her. Her visit reports are thorough and often amusing, depending on the pet's behavior! The photos are heartwarming. Amber, there are truly not enough good things we can say! Asheboro's loss is truly Wilmington's gain. We will do everything we can to spread the word to the coast." -Ann M., 7/2021

"Amber has been an amazing pet sitter for our pets. She goes above and beyond by providing us daily updates with pictures. You can tell that she is passionate about her job and truly loves pets. If we need anything while we’re away or have any questions, she always responds quickly. She’s one of a kind!" -Scott W., 7/2021

"Our fur-babies love Amber!!" -Caroline P., 7/2021

"Lola & Company (Amber) has been pet sitting for us since we adopted Bentley almost 3 years ago. She takes such good care of our fur baby! We are confident that she loves him like we do which means we can rest assured he is in good care when we are away. As a pet owner, that is the peace you need so you can enjoy your vacation even when your fur baby cannot go with you. The reports and pictures she provides to summarize her visit are a great way to know how Bentley is doing and assure us that he is enjoying time with Amber." -Regina R., 7/2021

"Amber is an amazing person. Its the kind of person you can fully trust to leave your pet with. :)" -Malena D., 7/2021

"Amber is wonderful at what she does and always loved our pets as her own, every time we used her." -Katie L., 7/2021

"Highly recommend! Amber has been a pleasure to work with from the start. Sometimes my pet sitting requests were pretty "last minute" and she always managed to work it into her schedule. I appreciate the pics that typically get included with the reports too. My dog, Lilly, LOVES Amber!" -Joel M., 7/2021

"Lola & Company has been with our family for years. Our black lab loves the owner Amber. We always feel at ease when traveling knowing that our lab is getting the best care. Amber has always gone above and beyond and not just with our pet. She has always got our mail and packages in if we are on a longer trip and even cleaned up a few times while our pet was sick. There is no one I trust more with my pet than Lola & Company." -Broc R., 7/2021

"We were new to the area and was unsure of having someone come in our home while we were away BUT we had a meet and greet and all 4 dogs loved her and she was very sweet so we decided to allow her to take care of our dogs while away. She did a very good job and kept in contact everyday and sent pictures everyday. We were very pleased and would definitely have her to watch our dogs again." -Danielle O., 7/2021

"Amber was always so helpful with my large dog Zion. She was flexible on scheduling which was a must with how my job is. There were multiple occasions that she made work on very short notice. She always gave updates on Zion so I’d know he was doing okay while I was away. It made having to leave him at home while I worked a lot easier knowing he was in trusted hands." -Hunter A., 7/2021

"Amber Lamar Bouharna, owner of Lola & Company has provided exceptional service to me and my family since 2018. Her primary focus has been in the care of our dogs, Captain and Allie Ann. For those who love animals, understanding the importance and value of family pets is not difficult. In our case, Captain and AA drift somewhere between "pet" and "human." My husband I simply adore them. As such, one can easily grasp the critical nature of their good care, particularly when we are not readily available. Amber has become an indispensable part of the Liles family human and canine lives. Her gentle and kind approach, combined with her reliability and overall professionalism go far in reassuring us that Captain and AA are in the "best of hands" when we are away, and close by. With the advent of Covid-19, our relationship with Amber has evolved to new and telling levels. From the outset of the crisis, and for obvious reasons, we were reluctant to engage in garden-variety activities outside of the home. For example, I was not inclined to go to the grocery store. I realize that this was a personal choice, and not one universally deemed essential; but help with every-day chores such as grocery shopping was necessary for me. When I requested help with these additional tasks, Amber responded with the same level of intentionality, maturity, and professionalism she demonstrated in her work with our animals. Of significance is the depth and breath of Amber's knowledge and experience. Though her current professional orientation is one with animal care and maintenance, Amber is also a bachelor's level trained registered nurse, possessing a wealth of clinical knowledge and experience. She is also an advocate for holistic living and wellness. In other words, she is a terrific resource and consultant for a myriad of in-home and self-care issues. I strive to respect the limitations of our relationship; but admittedly, I sometimes over-step my bounds because Amber is one smart woman. I find it near-impossible not to "pick her brain." I would recommend Amber Lamar Bouharna without reservation for the love and care of your pets. I often tell her that she is only bounded by her vision because I am quite sure...she can do anything." -Robin L., 2020

"I am truly blessed to have such a caring dog walker! I work a full time job and it's not acceptable to leave these pups inside without fresh air and a chance to just stretch. A mid-day walk is just perfect. Amber sends me an update and picture on each walk, which is so reassuring. Scheduling and communication top notch. Could not rate this service high enough." -Julie D., 2020

"Our experience with Lola & Company has been absolutely wonderful. As promised, our dog was visited and cared for within the agreed time frame. Having him cared for at home was a much better experience than having him boarded. Being able to receive pictures and to communicate through her portal was very appreciated. I highly recommend this company to pet owners." -Anthony M., 2019

"I’m so thankful to amber for coming and walking our two fur babies. They seem to so much happier to have visitor in the middle of the day." -Sherry M., 2019

"As my father reached end of life I contacted Amber to please be on standby for the unknown time I would want to leave everything and go to him in another state. When the time came, all I needed to do was text Amber and leave. I did not worry about my pet again until I returned. What she, nor I, knew was a friend (with a key) dropped by the house to check on the pet while I was away. It is a friend who knew my cat’s habits well enough to know he is a very messy eater. When I returned to NC my friend came by and told me how impressed she was when my pet happily met her at the door, had a spotless food area and also had a tidy litter box. I’ve always heard you can tell the character of a person by how they act when no one is watching. The care Amber gave my pet was awesome, even when I was hours away with no possibility of dropping in. That’s great character. Thank you for being someone I can trust in my home and with my pet." -Barbara W., 2019

"I highly recommend Lola & Company for all your petsitting needs. Amber is absolutely wonderful! She took care of my 4 kitties while I was out of town for a week and she more than exceeded my expectations! Not only did she send me texts & pics everyday letting me know my babies were ok, she left me a little card for each one telling me how they did while I was away! It was such a relief to go on vacation and not have to worry about my kitties because I knew Amber was taking such good care of them. I came home to happy kitties with clean litter boxes! It means the world to me to have such a kind and trustworthy person I can rely on looking after my babies while I’m away. I will definitely be giving Lola & Company a call again!" -Kelly H., 2018

"I have known Amber for a very long time (20+ years) so when she started this business I was very excited! We have a 4 year old Golden Retriever and 2 year old Bluetick Coonhound. We asked Amber to take care of our sweet boys the day of our wedding, as we were going to be VERY busy. Everything went smoothly! October rolled around and we had made the decision to move to Tennessee. We were not able to take our boys with us and they had to stay with my MIL for 4.5 months (until our house was built). We had Amber come in daily (M-F) to walk and feed our two boys plus my MILs Chihuahua. Although it was absolutely heart-breaking to be 7 hours away from them, we were confident they were being cared for. Amber sent photos and updates daily! I was never worried or concerned about our boys. We would highly recommend her for dog walking/sitting services. I wish we could bring her to Tennessee with us! :) Thank you so much Amber, you have been a blessing!!" -Amanda S., 2018


“We just had a stress free vacation thanks to Amber! She took the best care of our pups and my mom! They all loved her. She sent us updates via text messages with pics. She played fetch with the labs every night and took great care of Nannie! Thanks you Amber!!!” -Cindi R., 3/4/18

“Amber did a fantastic job!! She provided excellent care with daily updates on our little girl!! I highly recommend Lola and Company, we will definitely be using them again!” -Scott H., 2/20/18

“Amber does a great job and gives you peace of mind that your pets are happy and cared for while you're away. I love that she sends pics and updates and our pets obviously love her! Such a great, trustworthy service!"

-Caroline F., 11/13/17

“Amber took care of my two buddies, Molly n Conner while I attended a conference for three days. She took the time to send pictures and text to let me know how they were doing. The pictures were great for me so that I could see they were doing well. I never worried about them while I was away from home , I loved being able to leave them at home in their environment to ease their stress. I would recommend her to anyone that wants exceptional care for their fur babies.” -Judy C., 10/21/17

“Couldn't be happier with Lola & Company! I know our puppy is in great hands when we are away. Highly recommend!"  -Rebekah K., 8/31/17

“Amber took fantastic care of our fur baby Theo! She sent us pics and videos of him playing which only reaffirmed our choice to ask her to care for him while we were away. Thank you Lola & Company! The daily updates, progress notes on the counter and the thank you note were above and beyond!" –Ellie P., 7/8/17

“Being on holiday and knowing that your babes are safe and loved... there is no better feeling! I have changed schedules, reduced medications and stressed over my needy pups---none of this ever altered Amber's course. She promised to love and care for my dogs---and, she did! Thank you, Lola & Co.” –Melanie C., 7/25/17

“Oh my GOSH!! We love Amber at Lola & Company. Amber took the time to come to our home and meet our 3 pups ( 2 Rottweilers and 1 Aussie mix). She was prompt and on time. Very professional. Amber took time to listen and consider what we were asking of her. The first time we hired Amber at Lola & Company, she really blew it out of the water. We received a text message along with pics of each pup while she was at our home. Then we came home and found our UPS packages brought in - without asking, a thank you note (that was wonderful) along with 3 report cards (1 for each pup) all left on our counter. We could not have been more pleased. This company is all they say they are and more. We have several folks we use to care for our fur babies and I have to say she is one of the best! She is a 10 for sure.” -Kira R., 5/8/17

“Ok, so I am a part time dog sitter and my poodle pooch is my baby - literally. She thinks she's human! My parents have three dogs that are their children as well. However, the three of us haven't been on a trip together in SEVERAL years because we don't want to board our doggies and didn't know who to trust with our babies. We contacted and met with Amber and knew immediately that she was the one for us... well, for our babies! Leaving the four of them with someone other than each other was hard, but so worth it. Amber didn't mind my texts to check on them and she sent us pics and updates daily. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and would highly recommend her and we plan to use her again in the future. Thanks Amber." -Erica C., 5/26/17

“We had Amber watch our home and our two mini Australian Shepherds while we were out of town recently. The dogs adored her and barely missed us being gone. It is with pride I recommend you use Lola & Co. for pet services you might need. Not only does she have a big heart and caring spirit for animals but she had the skill set needed and professional training to make the experience a safe event for the animals. She went out of her way to keep our animals safe, clean and cared for. We will continue to use Amber and Lola & Co. so that we can be free to travel.” -Mark P.,6/5/17

“Truly a Godsend to me and my doodles. Leaving my babies and allowing myself to enjoy vacation is RUFF! I felt so confident leaving the country knowing that my dogs would be pampered like they are used to. Thanks so much for the wonderful, professional job you do!!” -Marybeth J., 4/29/17

"Amber did a great job taking care of our cat, Cali, last week. Daily pictures and texts showed a well cared for and loved kitty. She took her time getting to know Cali and our sweet dog, Sally, before we left. She was very professional and her love of animals was obvious. I will definitely use her service again and highly recommend Lola and Co. " – Judy H., 3/30/17


"Loved our experience! Amber was wonderful and we loved our pet report cards! It shows how much she really cares about animals. Definitely recommend!" -Lindsay W., 3/7/17


“Every thing about this experience was top notch! So glad to have this service!” -Jen P., 2/26/17


“Lola & Co. was great! Our dog really enjoyed having Amber over. It was obvious by how content she was when we came home. We feel much better being able to leave her at home instead of putting her in a kennel for the weekend too. Thanks again Amber!!”  -Adam H., 1/2/17


“We couldn’t be happier with the services we have received from Lola & Co! Amber looked after our 2 kitties while we were away, and also provided mid-day dog-walking during a long workday. Amber is genuinely caring toward us and our fur babies and treated them like they were her own. She is knowledgeable, thorough and reliable, and gives updates and photos to let us know all is well. The peace of mind that comes along with the services is priceless!" -Amy V., 1/9/17


“I recently took a trip out of the country and was apprehensive on taking the trip with my 13 year old senior Labrador to leave behind (who is my child). Lola and company took my mind off worrying if he was in good hands. I received text pictures with updates that were appreciated. Would recommend to all friends and family.” -Tony L., 1/11/17


"Lola & Company took care of our 5 month old puppy, and the peace of mind we had while travelling was priceless. Amber's outstanding communication let us know that our puppy was in good hands, and when we returned home we knew that Tooly had been cared for just as if we never left. We received a photo and text message, as well as a report card. We will be using Lola & Company again, and can recommend them to anyone looking for the best care for their pets. It truly is a relief knowing our puppy can stay home and be cared for by someone with a loving heart, not just someone "doing their job". Thank you so much!" -Beth W., 12/5/16


"Amber is amazing! I was new to the area and didn't know anyone to get referred so I went off of who had a genuine smile and interest in animals. I had pictures of all 3 animals daily with text updates, typed out daily reports for me to see when I got home, and she was extremely professional. I could not have asked for a better experience. My kitties loved her! I would highly recommend Amber for any pet service." -April D., 12/17/16


“Thanks to my client Beth Pindell for suggesting Amber to dog sit Rufus ! Amber came over to get to know Rufus first and took the time to find out about him. It was the first time leaving him home since we moved into our home . Amber put us at ease for sure! Loved all the updates and his report card too! Plus all the pictures. If you are looking for a animal sitter Lola & Company is the ticket. Thank you Amber and I know Rufus can't wait for you to take care of him again !” -Donna B., 12/31/16
