About Tanya

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I always said I would not get a dog until I had a home with a yard. Three years ago when I moved into my home, I adopted Einstein and have learned how sensitive and intelligent dogs can be, and how all of the sudden you cannot fathom a life without them. My walks with Einstein keep us both sane, and his cuddles have helped me through life's difficult moments.

My boyfriend, Constantine, has a lot of experience training dogs and has taught me how to handle anything, and now I love meeting new dogs and finding how to connect with them. I would love to have yours come stay with us!

I live in Angelino Heights two blocks from Echo Park Lake. It's a historic home with a big fenced yard we share with other friendly dogs - it's like a mini-dog park! I take Einstein on shorter, half-hour walks around the residential streets in the neighborhood and on longer walks around the lake to tire him out! I also love taking the bigger dogs to my favorite trail at Elysian when it's not too hot for a long hike.

Tanya’s Angelino Heights home is a 4-plex with a shared yard, populated by other dog-lovers and their furry friends.

She grew up with dogs and cats in Miami, where as a young girl, she volunteered at the Humane Society. She has experience petsitting for neighbors and now has the benefit of a professional dog walker boyfriend, Constantine, who’s teaching her the ropes for managing pup fun time.

Her impossibly adorable shaggy pal, Einstein, loves to go for walks through the neighborhood hills and to nearby Echo Park Lake, and he’s sure to make the perfect vacay buddy for your lucky pooch.
Tanya was awesome! Very accommodating and great with Shadow. She sent regular updates and photos so we always knew he was enjoying himself. Would recommend and rebook anytime.
Tanya is super easy to communicate with. She always takes good care of our two dogs King and Penny - they never want to leave when we pick them up! Thanks Tanya!
Same stay from the 9. See full review there.
We had a short but very pleasant stay. Tanya was great, responded quickly, Looks like Thomas had a great time with both Tania and Einstein her dog. I would definitely recommend leaving you loved one with Tania.
Tanya was great! She gave us updates and was always quick to respond. My pup Cali came back happy!
Tanya accepted a very last minute booking and was great throughout! She took good care of my pup and was very communicative.
Tanya is a great host! She's an experienced dog owner who knows how to deal with our dog's special needs. Highly recommended!
I've been looking for a local sitter for Stanley for a long time. Tanya "got" him right away and offered him a welcoming environment and a good time. She clearly knows how to manage a rambunctious poodle. She's been very flexible and accommodating to my schedule, too. I am glad to say that I think Stanley's got a new home away from home. I couldn't be happier.
Tanya is great
Tanya is AMAZING!!! Dingus had a great time!!
Tanya was most helpful with scheduling drop off and pick-up times. She was able to provide updates during my dogs stay at her home. They were loved and well cared for during their stay. This puts a dogowner at ease when traveling. Thanks Tanya!
Tanya was fantastic – very communicative and easy-going, and in a great area for walks and hanging out with our old dog. Thank you!
Tanya was very accommodating and flexible with my last minute plans! Overall she has a great way of caring for dogs and Cooper was very happy to spend time with Tanya and Einstein. We'll be back!
Tanya was great. She watched our dog for three nights, took our dog on walks, and sent us numerous picture updates. Our dog came home safe and happy. We would definitely recommend her.
Tanya's is my Sunhee's second home. Sunhee is very cautious and doesn't greet everyone with her wagging tail. I can tell she loves Tanya and enjoys her stay by the way she interacts with Tanya. Sunhee was also shy before. But now her social skills with other pups have improved after spending time with Tanya's dog. Thanks Tanya!
Tanya is a great host! She took Chaac and Ollie on a walk during our meet and greet to get a feel for them and acclimate them to her, and was sensitive to their specific needs and temperaments. Sent us pics so we could see how happy they were. Highly recommended!
Scarlet and Morocco loved their stay with Tanya! They got plenty of exercise and attention while there and came home very happy. Tanya even sent them back with some doggy treats =3
She took us last minute...and she was awesome with our dog, SH. Def have her take care of SH again.
Tanya was a fantastic host for my dog Katie, and I highly recommend her. This vacay was kind of last minute, and Tanya responded quickly to my request for the meet and greet, and then took Katie for her vacay just a couple days later. I got pics of my dog hanging out in Tanya's yard, and on walks in Echo Park. Katie came home completely herself, and not a zombie, which happened to her when she had to go to a kennel. I highly recommend Tanya, and hope to use her again!
Tanya was awesome! she was super easy to communicate with and King n Penny didn't seem to want to leave when we picked them up! thanks Tanya!
I am so grateful for Tanya. I reached out to her last minute when other plans fell through and she responded immediately and was so helpful and nice. I brought Billie over the next day to meet her adorable dog Einstein. Billie had the best time and I loved the photos from her weekend vacation. Tanya was so easy to communicate with and I felt comforted knowing Billie was in her hands. More than that -- Billie came home very happy and I think even a bit more grown up. I definitely hope Tanya is available next time I need a sitter for my angel.
