About Vanessa

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

We are both dedicated pet sitters and animal lovers that have worked 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 and Christian couldn't be nicer or easier to work with. Our Suki had a great time and was treated as though one of their own.
My dog loves visiting Vanessa and Christian. One of them is with the dogs all day. She sends lots of photos during his stays.
Thank you Vanessa for taking such good care of our little Lacie. She had such a good time. I loved all the pictures and updates.
