About yajaira

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I’m adaptable, loving, and patient. Taking care of someone's pet is a big responsibility, and I treat it as such! I adjust my approach to the needs and personality of each dog, welcoming them with compassion and warmth. I can keep up with the most active of puppies, enjoy leisurely moments with a mellow dog, and win over the most stubborn and standoffish pets. All dogs are different, and some need time to warm up to new people. They’ll appreciate my gentle, supportive presence--and since dog-sitting is my full-time gig, I’ve got endless time and love to devote!

I’m often asked by friends to care for their fur babies, and they’ve always been impressed by how happy their pups are when they come home. It’s such a joy for me to help them and spend time with their dogs! I decided to start pet-sitting full-time. As a dog owner, I know how important it is to get photos and updates of Gizmo while I’m away. That’s why I check in at regular intervals, and even share videos of what we’re up to--so you can have total peace of mind.

I love to go for long walks and spend as much time as possible outdoors. Living in the moment; taking in a sweeping, scenic view; and going for an invigorating run are all wonderful ways to pass the time, especially with a pup in tow! I also like to do yoga, spend time with family, and do home improvement projects.

My neighborhood is dog-friendly, and only two blocks away from dog park and a beach, where we can play the day away! My home has a balcony where we can enjoy the sunset, and we can soak in the sun during the day. If we host your pup in my home, my pup Gizmo and my fiancé Ricardo will both be friendly and fun! Alternately, I can come to your home while Ricardo keeps an eye on Gizmo--we’ll tailor our approach to whatever’s best for you and your pup. He’s an animal lover like me, and we make a great team.

With years of experience, I’m able to provide a wonderful environment where your pup will prosper, whether you’re away for a day or a month. You can trust me with dogs who have special needs, allergies, separation anxiety, or other medical or behavioral needs. I’ve handled it all, and I’m confident that I can provide top-quality care for all kinds of dogs. Lots of love, hugs, and cuddles will be dispensed to dogs who enjoy affection. Of course, each pup is unique and requires different amounts of exercise, playtime, and attention. That’s why I’ll pay close attention to their cues, and respond accordingly.

I would love to know what your dog likes! what are his/her quirks and preferences, personality traits? My dog is spoiled and I understand that we do anything for them. I would also like to know if there are any rules you'd like me to follow. Most importantly please let me know of any health issues up to date vaccines and if your dog is house trained :)

Yajaira is a person that I can trust with my Lucas he is a pincher chihuahua. When I have to go away or on vacation she always takes good care of Lucas. She is responsible and very loving to my Lucas.

Yajaira and Ricardo provide excellent service! Ricardo is very preofessional as well as friendly. I know when I leave my chihuahua mix, Pookie with either one of them, he is in great hands. They are highly recommended and I'm grateful to have met them!!

Pet owner's do not consider their pets as just a "dog" or "cat", owners consider their pets as part of their family. Yajaira fits that description of a dog owner. She provides her Gizmo the attention necessary to ensure his allergy conditions are avoided and also provides him with the comforts of love to assure he has a good life. When my Sophie was diagnosed with anemia, she would not eat her doggy food. While my time at work, I trusted Yajaira to care after my Sophie. During her care, Yajaira cooked my Sophie chicken, like the veterinarian recommended to ensure my Sophie eats. This gesture showed love and care for a pet and I couldn't be anymore thankful. I guarantee Yajaira is a responsible pet owner who loves her Gizmo dearly and will go above and beyond to make your pet happy.
