About Diane

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My rates reflect/include care for 2 SMALL PETS (or 1 medium or 1 large) - walks/care/love - In Your Home. I've cared for almost every size and personality dog (and cat) for over 30 years; giant to tiny in size; abused, aggressive, separation anxiety, health afflicted, fearful and high energy! I'm First Aid/CPR Certified to look after pets at any age or health stage.

If you're looking for premium care for your pet, you can rest assured yours will be adored and cared for as if they were my own.

Your pets will be cared for in familiar surroundings by an experienced, calm, insightful, attentive, responsible, punctual, detail oriented, compassionate and loving caretaker. I have a sincere love and insight for dogs and cats with all their nuances and have no fear of mess, fur or slobber!

Professional Background: I've professionally walked, visited and physically cared for other's dogs and cats for over 18 years. This includes a wide array of breeds, mixes, sizes, temperaments and personality dynamics. My experience also includes in depth recovery care following major surgeries. Member of Pet Sitters International Professional Pet Sitters. Insured and Bonded. Pet First Aid and CPR Certified.

I've been owned by multiples of pets always - from Irish Wolfhound, Rottweiler, Bouvier, Retriever, Mixes, Cocker Spaniel, Weimeraner, Terrier dogs and more - to rabbits, hamsters and reptiles!

You can have peace of mind knowing your pets are cared for with compassion, understanding, experience and responsibility in the comfort of their own home, customized to their needs and yours.

Overnight stay? 11-12 hours of care, generally from 8pm to 7am. Or we can discuss a customized schedule that suits your pets' needs and yours that includes day and evening. I am self contained, have my own sleeping kit and everything else needed to leave your home undisturbed.

Health Ailments: I am experienced in caring for dogs with health challenges. I will keep your veterinarian's information in my contacts, along with an excellent 24 hour animal hospital in Tustin (or the one you provide me).

Coyote Watch: The presence of coyotes is always in the forefront of my mind while caring for your pet. I own an air horn, red pepper spray, whistle and stick ready for use if needed.

Whether it's walking, visiting, overnight, all day care, drop ins, extended care, 3 visits a day, a customized, highly detailed schedule or anything unique your pet needs, I've most likely experienced it, enjoy and excel at providing a high level of care. I look forward to caring for your pet. Let's talk more!

Diane was AMAZING, truly! I have never used a dog sitting service and Diane was better than I could have imagined! I will never feel bad about going away for work. I cannot wait to use Diane again, she was perfect for my high maintenance, attention addicted and cuddle obsessed toy poodle and yorkie! She sent lots of photo updates and I came back to a perfectly clean house and very clean looking puppies, along with notes and a personalized puppy present! Our flight was even delayed and she stayed at our house until late in the night to ensure they weren't left alone for too long. Cannot thank Diane enough
If my family and I could give Diane 10/5 stars we would... she is that amazing!

We went on a family vacation to Hawai'i for a week but needed someone to come stay in our home to watch over our two shih tzu dogs. We have used DogVacay before but our other dog sitter has since found another career. So, we carefully researched the next person we would entrust in taking care of our beloved pets.

Diane went above and beyond. For example, when we left for the airport at 5 am she came over before per our request so our dogs would not be too sad. This is just one instance where Diane treated our pooches as if they were her own!

We gave her a step-by-step manual of what we do to take care of our dogs when we are home for an easy transition and she followed it to a T. They are shih tzus so they are somewhat high maintenance (oops! ha) but she was more than willing to ensure they were well taken care of.

She sent us pictures throughout the day with updates on how they were doing. This included pictures of her snuggling and giving our fur babies love!

In summary, going forward I will only be requesting Diane to watch over my dogs. I could not have asked for anyone better and she has raised my standards for an animal caretaker beyond what I could have imagined. Thank you, Diane! You are truly THE BEST.
Diane is ah-mazing!!! Her gentle and caring approach to my pups really helped put them at ease and me too! I trust her taking care of my babies and makes my days easier when I know she is visiting them. Most importantly my pups love her and fast on becoming friends. I highly recommend her and have told all my neighbors! She is very accommodating and responds right away to your messages. She is the best!!
