About Alina

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We offer in your own home boarding. My husband and I will make sure you pup will have as much fun on their vacation as you and your pup will have tons of fun playing with our dog Cake.

Daily Activities:
Your dog will enjoy at least three long walks a day and an optional daily trip to the dog park.
Cake and I try to make positive reinforcement training part of our everyday life and we would love to extend that to your dog as well.

Your dog gets to stay home, in the place they are most comfortable in!

Time: My husband stays home with the dogs until 11:30 am-12:30pm, I come him around 2pm leave again only from 4-4:30pm. So if you dog needs 24 hour supervision during the week we cannot provide that, but we can provide lots of quality time.

Other Services:

+We also provide walking services and in home visits.

+ Cake is also extremely cat friendly and we love caring for cats as well.

+Need care for another type of pet? Shoot us a message and I'm sure we can watch your special animal as well!

Sitting: We charge $45 per night for pet sitting. If you have more than one dog, it is an additional $20 per dog, per night.
During Holidays our per night rate is double at $90 a night. Additional dogs are still $20 a night.

Visits: $20 for an our long visit. Includes litter changes, feedings, walking and quality time.

Walks: $15 for a 15 minute walk, $20 for 30 minutes, $60 for an hour. Timer starts once we are out the door.

Cake and I look forward to meeting you and your dog and making sure they enjoy their vacation as much as you do.

Alina is absolutely wonderful. She is very warm and friendly and is a very experienced dog owner. She has personally used DogVacay for boarding, so she is intimately familiar with the concerns first time boarders might have! She has a very dog friendly pup that would make a great playmate for your pup while you're away. She is located close to several great parks and would provide an engaging and fun stay for your pet. I would book with her with confidence.
Responsive and knowledgable! Alina was so fantastic with our puppy Lucy for a weekend! She sent cute photos through out the day of Lucy's daily adventures with her dog Cake. She also has a ton of experience with dogs and was so patient and understanding of Lucy's puppy behavior. Thanks so much Alina!
she went the extra mile
Alina's attention and care for my sometimes-scared-of-anything, high energy pupster exceeded my expectations. Her picture updates made me feel like I was part of the doggie vacation. Easy to work with and genuinely cares about our canine friends. My pupster came home exhausted in a good way and misses her new best friend Cake! Would definitely book again for daycare or overnight. Thank you!!!!
Alina was great with my dog Fenway! Super-reliable, very trustworthy, and responsive too. Fenway is looking forward to spending more time with her :)
Great puppy sitter!
Great puppy sitter!
Alina Pritchett is one the very best dog-sitters/boarders I have found in the 9 years that that I've had my present dog, an English beagle. She and her husband only take into home only 2 dogs at a time. Sometimes 3. They obviously love dogs and treat their boarders as if they were their own.

I boarded my very active, nosey-inquisitive and emotional beagle who gets to hunt and chase critters 2+ hours a day when he's with me. Alina's routine is to take the dogs out 3x a day for lengthy walks and playtime to different nearby public parks and dog parks (e.g., SaMo Airport), which is wonderful. She also sends a batch of digital photos to the owners on a daily basis, which for me affords plenty of peace of mind. I know exactly how my beagle is doing from day to day; and if an issue comes up, she'll let you know right away.

She has every mundane detail of boarding dogs nailed down tight--from bedding, to food, to medication to exercise. She is perceptive with animals, understands dog psychology, and becomes an excellent temporary master of your pet while you're away.

I wouldn't hesitate a second to board my dog with Alina again. And I will be dong so as I will be traveling a lot more in coming years.
Alina is great. Cassius the dog had a very fun weekend with her, with a lot of playtime and attention. Alina completely knows what she's doing and sends picture updates which is appreciated. Your dog is in good hands here.
Alina rescued our dog during one Saturday midnight from our car in Marina Del Ray area while my family and I were dealing with an emergency situation. We desperately needed someone to take care of our dog. She was very helpful and she spent almost two hours searching for the car and eventually found our dog. Following day, she treated our dog very well, taking her for walks and feeding her with great food. She sent us many photos of martini through out the day, showing how she was doing. It was a blessing to be able to connect with Alina in a last minute situation through this website and I am still very thankful for her support and level of her understanding in a late Saturday night time. I'm sure martini had an amazing experience and thank you so much once again Alina.
I don't have enough words of gratitude towards Alina and her husband for taking care of my cat, Lenard. She was born to do this!!

As a new cat owner I was nervous to leave my cat in another house with a dog already living there. Alina knew how to do things from the very beginning to make things as smooth as possible. She first met me outside the house with Cake (her dog), so she and Lenard could meet in a neutral space. Then, she gave Cake something that has Lenard's scent so she could become familiar with the smell. Once we got into the house, she put Cake into a safe place so Lenard could go around the house free of worry. At that point I left, but I knew that I was leaving my baby in really good hands.

Well, it turned out that Cake and Lenard became best friends!! And I'm delighted to have found the best foster parents Lenard can have when I'm out of town.

Thank you, Alina!!!!!!!!

ps: Alina takes the best pictures and videos ever. Seriously, she took better pictures of my cat in 4 days than I've done in 8 months.
ALINA IS AMAZING!!! Just the best I could ask for. She is really on top of her game! Send pictures and updates frequently! My pup was smiling the whole time. The resident dog, Cake, made the stay super fun and I will definitely be coming back!!!
Alina (and her husband) were absolutely wonderful sitters. From the very start in communication as well as in person during the meet and greet, Alina was very responsible and thorough with a calming energy that I felt was great as a care taker. During the vacay she sent so many great photos and updates, and even wrapped some Christmas gifts for the doggies. Without a doubt I felt my dogs were in excellent hands. I would recommend her strongly, and am glad to have found her myself, as I'm will definitely trust my dogs with her anytime.
Our dog Bobby had such a great time with Alina and Cake he didn't want to leave! Alina was a great dog sitter providing loads of pictures and updates during his entire stay. I have used a number of hosts on DogVacay, and while they promise to send photos none have done such a good job as Alina. It was great to know Bobby was in safe hands.
Alina was great throughout the whole experience, from planning Skeeter's drop off, through multiple picture updates and his pickup. Skeeter had a great time and got along really well with their resident dog. Would recommend!
Everything was great! Alina sent lots of great pictures of my pup and it looks like they had a fun weekend together.
Alina and her dog Cake provided the most wonderful care of my dog! We received many photos and videos of my dog playing in the park and in her apartment. Alina obviously cares for dogs and is perfect for boarding your dog . Highly recommended!
Great host! very flexible, and Chico had a very nice and active day. Although he was only there for a day, we got tons of pictures and videos. Highly highly recommend her.
