About Larisa

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Special NOTE: We no longer accept new male pups - as we had a big problem with them marking things inside the house. New Female pups are welcome!

Thank you for stopping by! We are a young family of four: Mom, Dad, and 2 kids ages 9 and 13. We live in the heart of Almaden Valley - with many parks and hiking trails. We have been boarding and sitting dogs for over 3 years now and have a lot of experience with all kinds of dogs. We welcome any friendly dogs, any breed as long as they are socialized and in good overall health. Your dog must be up-to-date on his/her shots. We can only board spayed/neutered pups. We take up to 3 guest pups at the time. So your pup will get a VIP experience.

I am always home, and dogs are almost never left unattended (except for short periods around 15-30 min). Please refer to our pictures: we really do keep your pup entertained and happy. We have a mid size patio/back yard and a huge green park right in our complex - so rest assured your dog will get a lot of outdoor time with us.

Overnight Boarding rate is for 24 hour period. Extra hours can be covered as an additional time (it can be accommodated as a custom quote; please inquire). We'll be happy to keep your pup safe, entertained and happy while you’re away. Thanks & looking forward to meeting you and your sweet pup!

Why I love dog sitting
I have been around dogs my whole life since the age of 14, and very experienced with dogs. I can also provide training and re-inforce some of the common commands.

About my yard
We have a mid size patio, and a nice, big green park right outside our house.

My experience administering medication:
Yes, oral medication OK - I have been given many pups their meds; no problem.

Larisa took very good care of our dog with periodic updates and photos.
This was my first time using Larisa to take care of my dog, Teena. It was just for one night, but it looked like Teena was having a very nice time, judging by the great photos I received. Teena seemed to really bond with Larisa's daughter, Katrina, judging by the great photos I received. Teena seemed to really bond with Larisa's daughter, Katrina, too. Larisa and her family are all very nice, and they have a very warm and inviting home. I was very happy that Teena just had two other dogs to get used to, one of them being Larisa's dog, Buster. He's a very sweet and friendly dog. I also appreciated the little treat bag Larisa sent home with Teena. That was very thoughtful. I will definitely use Larisa, again, when I need a petsitter for Teena.

Larisa is an amazing dog sitter! She gave me lots of feedback during Leroy's first stay with her and provided great pictures throughout the day. Leroy doesn't have a lot of interaction with other dogs so we were a bit worried that he would be too Leroy doesn't have a lot of interaction with other dogs so we were a bit worried that he would be too aggressive but he fit right in. Larisa also gave me great tips to help improve the way that we were walking Leroy. We look forward to having Leroy stay with Larisa again.
