Pets are Family Members

At Palm Beach Canine we believe pets add immeasurable love, companionship, and comfort to our lives..they are family. And because we live so closely with them, pet parents may feel uneasy when leaving for a long day at work or a much-needed vacation. Palm Beach Canine is an at-home pet care service designed to alleviate stress and anxiety by providing professional, accountable, and experienced care for your furry loved ones.

There’s no place like home for your pets! Keep them where they are most comfortable and on-routine for meals, potty breaks, and exercise. Palm Beach Canine’s caregivers follow your instructions regarding pet care and provide plenty of love and attention so you can enjoy peace of mind while on-the-go!

Libby Kruse

Libby Kruse is a lifelong animal lover with decades of experience with family dogs including breeds such as Chihuahua, Pomeranian, Poodle, Lab, German Shepherd, Mastiff, Doberman, and pit bull terrier as well as various mixed breed dogs. Additionally, she’s been an active volunteer for 5+ years at the county’s Animal Care and Control shelter and with Darbster Foundation, a local rescue organization that relocates and places South Florida’s unwanted dogs and cats in forever homes in the Northeast. Caring for homeless animals until they find loving, permanent homes is her passion. Libby’s dedication to volunteering has gifted her with the invaluable experience of handling many hundreds of dogs with an emphasis on larger breed dogs and dogs that may be excited, frightened, or nervous.


“Palm Beach Canine is the only pet service I use. Libby is very conscientious about caring for my 3 cats. And I love the photos and daily updates she sends while I’m away. Libby treats my cats and my home like her own. My cats are happy with her which makes me a loyal client.”

-E. Moore

“I used Palm Beach Canine for pet sitting my 2 dogs and 2 cats, and Libby came to meet them the day before which was extremely helpful. She really knows how to make the animals feel comfortable. Libby asked me all sorts of questions so she could take care of my animals exactly the way I would. She is very kind, professional and knowledgeable. I would trust her with my fur babies anytime!”

– Heather Cuff

“Palm Beach Canine is without a doubt the best pet sitter in Palm Beach County. We have 4 large dogs that are not the easiest group, going away in the past has been stressful since we never fully trusted our babies to anyone else. Libby takes the time to understand each of them as well as our general household (she asked a ton of good questions) to ensure all remain safe and comfortable when we are away. We also feed a few community kitties and Libby easily steps into this role as well. We cannot say enough good things about this fantastic organization. We would highly recommend to anyone seeking a high level of service and peace of mind.”

-Alan Gould

My American Bulldog, Juliette, simply loves her time with PB Canine. She is signed up for morning walks and the attention she gets is amazing. She loves her walks and her excitement when she sees Libby is amazing to see – she truly loves her dog walker. She has Friday Fundays where she is brought to a local park, plenty of love and just enough treats to keep her happy. I don’t know what Juliette and I would do without Libby and PB Canine!
