About Vanessa

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Vanessa and I have experience with dogs for over 30 years and 12 as a dog sitter. Christian, my roommate and I, provide 24-hour supervision overnight, daycare and walking services. We take dogs up to 40 lbs., have a cozy apartment with an enclosed patio and a large backyard.

We are both dedicated pet sitters and animal lovers that haveworked with a variety of canine breeds (Chihuahua to Saint Bernard). We are available for in home, overnight care and daily walks. Our mission is to provide safe, reliable pet care at reasonable rates with impeccable customer service. UCLA grad and reference available upon request.

We like to know in advance of any allergies, feeding styles, or separation anxiety tendencies, so we can prepare to keep your pup as comfortable as possible during their stay. Please bring your pup's bed and have your pup on an effective flea control treatment.

All of our clients' dogs are very loved. Most of them become like family. When your pup stays with us, we'll go for walks 3 times a day, play, fetch and will receive lots of love and attention.

Please note our resident dog, Monkey, is a very sweet and friendly chi who loves to play!

Vanessa is very loving and caring of her pets. She immediately makes them feel at home, in a small but charming apartment, your dog will be treated like a part of her family. She lives in the back unit of a 4-unit building. It is completely fenced, allowing for great privacy. There are no stairs throughout the property.
It is easily accessed from Artesia Blvd, on an adjacent street.

The pups can safely relax and enjoy some peaceful time in the front yard, or anywhere they please around the house. There is also a large grassy backyard with lots of trees, and Vanessa likes to take the dogs to the backyard for a run, and go on a daily walk in the local streets. Your dog will have full time supervision at the house, while Vanessa works from home. She is also happy to help out for daily walks and daycare, as well as short term and long term overnight stays.

Vanessa is CPR trained, experienced in administering medication, and can give insulin injections to diabetic pets as well.

Vanessa was such a great sitter! She and her partner Christian made Leia feel right at home during her stay with them. I love how she kept me updated and sent me countless pictures throughout the day which made me feel happy knowing she was in good hands. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter in the South Bay! Leia can't wait for her next stay with Vanessa and Christian and their sweet puppy Monkey :)

Vanessa is was very kind, caring and open to listening about our dog murphy and his needs. He had a wonderful stay and he will be going back to see her. Thank you Vanessa for making it easy and stress free to leave my baby with you.
Vanessa was a great fit for our little guy. It was kind of short notice and we had never used a sitter before this trip since we'd had the fortune of friends and family to help. We organized a meet and greet and she answered all of my questions and assured me our dog would be in good hands.

Throughout our trip away she sent me photos and updates which was a joy and reassuring that he was enjoying himself. He came back after the trip a happy camper.

Vanessa was great. I appreciated receiving text updates and pictures. She made me feel at ease that my 2 dogs were taken care of the way I would.
Thank you so much for taking such great care of our little girl. After each visit she come home happy and tuckered out after playing all day!
Sara was well taken care of over the weekend - she came home looking good and even a little tired after walks and play with her new friends. Vanessa was so sweet to even send some pics of her enjoying her stay over the weekend! We have a new go to for a home away from home for our sweet pup ;)

Vanessa and Christian were doting aunt and uncle to Nina. They sent lots of photos and kept me updated.
We had a great experience with Vanessa! She was so nice and reassuring that our French Bulldog Gertie would be in good hands. She was great about sending us pictures throughout the weekend and giving us updates on how she was doing - which was greatly appreciated. We will definitely use Vanessa again!

Vanessa was a fantastic overnight host! I got updates during her stay and loved that there was a fenced in back yard. Miley had a great time with her other furry friends as she did not want to leave when I went to pick her up. I would definitely book with Vanessa again and recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, safe and friendly sitter.

Thank-you again Vanessa!!!

Vanessa stayed at our home with our two fur boys. We went away for a family wedding and, for the first time, decided to have someone stay at the house with the boys. Vanessa updated us with messages and pictures throughout the stay but was very considerate not sending anything during the wedding. We returned home to two happy, healthy, tired boys.

We'll be sure to contact Vanessa the next time we have to go out of town!

Vanessa was very friendly, accommodating of all our requests & wonderful to our Chewy. He's a high energy dog so I was concerned about how he would do but it seemed that he had a great time. I received updates & pictures from her & she was very responsive. We will be happy to use her again!
