About Annie

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a lover of all animals! I currently have 1 cat, Gigi, but I live vicariously through my friend's dogs. I'm great with dogs of all sizes. I've yet to work with an English Mastiff, but there's a first for everything! I prefer to host dogs that are good around cats. My cat usually minds her own business and stays away from the dog guests, but a dog that wouldn't chase her around would be wonderful! : )

I live right off Eat Street in the vibrant Whittier neighborhood. I'm one block away from Washburn Fair Oaks park, and less than a mile from Loring Dog Park. On my walks with the dogs, we're sure to run into other people walking their dogs as well. Lots of opportunities for social walking interactions!

I have a spacious apartment that I share with two friends. There are lots of windows great for viewing the neighborhood squirrels as well as people walking out and about. Dogs are allowed on the furniture, on the beds. I also have some doggy stairs for smaller breeds and elderly dogs. Wooden and tiled floor makes for easy clean up if accidents occur.

I work a 9-5 job, so I'm typically not available for mid day breaks.

My rate is $27 a night, for the first dog, and an additional $5 for the 2nd dog. That includes all walks and feedings. Nights typically start between 5-7 pm and last for 24 hours. There is wiggle room with the time and we can discuss that when it arises.

Any other questions, feel free to message me!

Annie was absolutely delightful! Not only did she take great care of our dog Minnnie, but she also genuinely showed her love. Annie sent us regular pictures and updates. We highly recommend Annie!
Annie took terrific care of my two little dogs. It was the first time I have ever left them in a stranger's hands, but she made me feel reassured when I left her house. Annie provided daily photos and updates by text, so I felt very much looped in on their status. Thank you Annie!!
Annie is our go-to for sitting! She always goes the extra mile, checking in with us periodically and even sending pictures. Would recommend her to anybody.
Annie is fantastic! She was so easy to work with. Very prompt in getting back to us and very responsible. Our two dogs loved her and she took all the worry away from us having to leave them behind for the weekend. She truly loves dogs and was so kind to send us pictures and updates many times while we were away. So happy to have found her.

Annie was available on New Year's Eve so I was grateful for her help on a holiday and on short notice. I had her come over a couple of times to feed my dog, let him out and take him for a short walk (we were gone for about 24 hrs total). I wasn't able to hand her a key so I left one in a lock box on my front door. Though Annie was reliable, I was a little disappointed when I came home and found that the back door was left unlocked and the key in the front lock box was not securely placed back into the box (it did not click into place so anyone could have accessed them). Annie is kind and friendly so I chalked it up to a fluke but I thought it was still important to mention in the review.

Annie watched my dog one other time (stopping by for feedings, bathroom breaks and walks) and she did a fine job. No problems.
Annie is the best. She quickly went from a total stranger to someone we fully trusted with our beloved pit bull and our home. She agreed to a 10 day trip at the last minute and put up with our overbearing and nervous behavior like a champ! Victor can be nervous around strangers but he fell in love with Annie instantly, which was very reassuring. She stayed with Victor at our house, which is ideal! We would highly recommend Annie and hope we can book her for our next trip! Thanks Annie!
Annie was wonderful with my three pups! They immediately warmed up to her and accepted her into our home. She was very responsive and attentive to my dogs' needs. We just recently relocated from out of state and my dogs are still adjusting and Annie took that into account and was just a joy to have watch the pups. I am definitely planning on having her sit again in the future. Thanks so much!
Annie was a great sitter. I really appreciated that my dog was clearly having a good time in all the pictures she sent during my time away. Annie was very adaptable to my travel plans and great to work with.
Annie was willing to dog sit on a holiday (4th of July) and was extremely accommodating when it came to organizing a meet and greet in a short time frame.

What I also appreciated about her is that she was willing to come to my home to take care of Owen so that I didn't need to haul all of his supplies to another place (for a short 24 hour gig). She didn't spend the night--just stopped by several times to feed, walk and hang out with him. He seemed happy and satisfied when I returned home. I'd definitely hire her again.
Annie was amazing! We have two high energy rescue dogs who are both under 2 years old, and they took to Annie immediately the moment they met her. Our puppies can be quite a handful and they aren't the most well behaved all the time, but Annie was truly wonderful with them and my husband and I felt at ease with Annie as immediately as the doggies did!

This was the first time someone outside of family watched the doggies, and the first time we had someone stay in our apartment. I have to say, the whole experience with Annie was the best dog-sitting experience we have ever had (family included).

We absolutely recommend Annie for anyone who loves their pet(s) and is looking for someone to care for them just as much as the owner would. Annie kept us informed, answered our questions, sent us updates and pictures, and we will most definitely want to use her the next time both of us are out of town!

Thank you Annie!
Annie was awesome. We met before the stay and I walked through all of the norms in my dogs life. She stayed at my apartment which was great because my dog Bella was more comfortable. We did not have any problems during the 5 day stay. I got pictures from her every day showing Bella pooped or playing in a field near by. Bella was in great shape when I got home and so was my apartment. She is a caring and loving girl and was very understanding of my constantly eccentric dog.
