If your dog is your child like mine is - and you need care that is what the fussiest dog owner (me) would want for their dog then look no further! I have just joined DogVacay as a sitter after experience as a customer - but I am a 10 year foster mom for rescue groups who thoroughly checked my home. My home is set up for my dog's safety...I chose my building for her safety. It is a secured, 'luxury' internal apartment - my dog would still be enclosed should she decide to go out when I open my door.
I love, love, love dogs and I am currently a 5 year volunteer at Pugnation LA. I have been a foster mom off and on for 10 years - with Pugs and other breeds so I have a lot of experience dog sitting but only for charities. My fur baby is a sweetheart Pug rescue dog. She is so amazing with my foster dogs - allowing me to give a lot of attention to dogs in need. I currently only have my dog Hannah in my home and I will always post the second dog if I take on a foster.
I work from home and I am up quite early so I will spend all of my time with your dog. For those of you that are as picky as I am - your dog will get care full time supervision on weekends. I will not be going out on Friday or Saturday night leaving your baby unattended on weekends when I have a doggie guest. I will literally spend every minute with your pup! I also believe in a minimum of three texts and photos of your dog with updates each day (unless you don't want them). I will keep your dog on your schedule - walking and feeding per the most explicit directions. I started out with DogVacay as a customer and I'm still a customer. I will give your babies very special attention and all of my time. I am highly conscientious and my rate does reflect that. Ask for a custom quote for longer stays and I will gladly discount!
I offer discounts on second dogs from the same family! Please send a request for a custom quote!
From my fostering experience and adoptions of special needs, elderly Pugs I have become very good with special or elderly dog care. I have had one blind elderly Pug and one that was deaf and blind.
My condo is large and is very clean with all hardwoods making for easy sanitation (my dog always has a puppy pad as back up - if your dog is paper trained that will always be available). I am very cautious to not have anything in my home that could harm my dog. As I mentioned, the apartment door is internal within the building. Your dog would never have the possibility of getting to the street without my having them on a leash as they would have to pass through three doors and an elevator or locked stairwell.
Again, if your dog is your child like mine is - and you need high quality care with frequent texts and pictures through the day near Playa del Rey - what the fussiest dog owner (again, me) would want for my dog - please let's chat!
Thanks so much for reading my notes and please feel free to ask me anything!
