About Paola

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Paola and I'm terrible at talking about myself. I could tell you all about my baby, Stevie, a mixed breed puppy I got last year at Ghetto Rescue - but I think you want to know how I'll take care of your own lovable furry babies.

I adore dogs (more than people, sometimes!) and so does Stevie. He's great with puppies and older dogs and even bigger dogs - our neighbor's wiener doggie and our other neighbor's Chihuahua are his best friends. He'd love to meet your dog and play around in our little garden right in front of our apartment door. All our spaces are gated, fenced and locked, and our puppies are super secure as they run amok in the grass.

I often foster and volunteer for the rescue Dogs Without Borders, and I'm very experienced in handling multiple dogs with very different personalities. :)

I'm in the heart of downtown long beach, close to the freeway entrance. You can drop your puppy off with me and then drive right around to go to work in ten minutes. I work from home, so you can rest assured videos and photos updates will be plenty. I have a small space - 400sqf - but lots of love to give: puppy treats, toys, and a quiet neighborhood in Long Beach with dog parks nearby. We love Rosie Dog Beach, and if your dog loves it too, we go there often and we'd love to take him with us to play in the sand and waves.

Stevie and I would love to meet your doggies and see how they like me.

Paola is a warm and gentle gal that obviously loves doggies! She lives in a lovely and cozy studio apartment in the heart of Long Beach with her sweet doggy pal Stevie. He is a happy go lucky pup who loves to play with other dogs and is very friendly with humans.

Her yard area in the front of her apartment is rather large and gated all the way around with wrought iron fencing and chain link in the back area. There is a lot of room for pups to play and enjoy the sun in the security of her garden area. She works from home so is able to give pups most of her attention throughout the day while she is at the computer.

She also enjoys taking doggies for walks and loves to go to dog beach just a few blocks away. I think she would be perfect for someone especially who likes a very attentive person with their dogs. She would also be perfect for a professional who may work downtown Long Beach that wants to take their pup with them on their way to work and then pick them up right around the corner so they can enjoy daycare with her.

I wish her the best of success because she really is passionate about caring for dogs!

Paola's place was the perfect "home away from home" for my 4-legged baby. While I was out of town, I wanted to find an alternative to a kennel type environment. Paola provided the love and caring that my dog needed. She had so much fun. If she (my dog) could talk, I know she would agree. I know she misses them. Paola even sent a bunch of photos and videos. I will definitely call Paola (and her dog) again when we need a dog sitter.

Paola was awesome with my two dogs and the best part about her is she's so close to where we live. She has a grass area where the dogs can play and run around. I will definitely be contacting her again!
