I live in a beautiful dog friendly apartment in Santa Monica. It has hard wood floors and a dog-safe balcony outfitted with real grass for bathroom breaks. I use only all natural cleaners, including natural enzimes for accidents, so you can be sure the place is safe for puppy paws.
My place has everything your dog might need; a playpen, crate, food and water bowls, bed and blankets, and many, many toys. Comfy furniture is also available to your dog for cuddling.
If your dog stays with me we'd start our day with breakfast and head out for a 40 min walk. We might wander to my favourite dog friendly coffee shop and sit on the patio for a bit. You can be sure your dog will have lots of socialization time. We'd hang around the house for lunch time or eat on a dog friendly patio and head back out for an afternoon walk before dinner. Dinner would be cooked in to ensure your dog gets all the attention he needs. Weekends are usually bathtime for my dog, which I offer as an additional service for your dog. On weekdays my pup comes to work with me and gets along perfectly with the other work dogs (of all sizes!), however I am only offering weekend pet sitting at this time.
I was raised with dogs and have experience looking after my family dogs, a German Shepard and Standard Poodle, and now care for my own pup, a Toy Poodle. I can give medication (both pill and liquid) and care for a sick pup. I only practice positive dog training and guarantee a safe and supportive environment for your dog. I'd love to look after your dog, please get in touch!
About My dog:
I have a red toy poodle named Rusty. He is under 1 year old (born Aug 19, 2015) and is friendly to all dogs and people. He comes to work with me during the week and gets along with all the office dogs, from a chiwawa to a giant black lab mix. He loves making new friends and would be delighted to have a little buddy in the house!
About my services:
24/7 care is available upon request and dependent on schedules
I charge an additional fee for puppies because they are a lot of work and I make sure they get proper attention and lots of exercise. Please inquire to discuss pricing.
Bathing includes soothing oatmeal shampoo, brush and blow dry and lots of love and treats during the bath (in case bath time is traumatic!)
Want to show off? For $5 I'll teach your pup a fancy new trick! Maybe he needs help with the basics or maybe you want to impress your friends. My persona favorite trick is "yoga"!
I'm a Canadian living in LA. I work as a Strategic Planner and I'm a certified Yoga Teacher.
