About Aki

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is Aki. I grew up with animals all my life; Riki (Siberian Husky), lots and lots of hamsters, Mocha (Rabbit), Mana (Lab/ Boxer), Goma (Pomeranian/ Pekinese), and my current baby Mr. Japan (Husky/ Pit). All of my dogs are rescues and I have worked with organizations helping out at adoption events and transporting dogs on spay/ neuter days. Mr. Japan gets along with all types of dogs and loves to play and cuddle. We are both very excited to make new doggy playmates!

I am currently self employed as a professional dance instructor and also run a dance program providing ballroom dance lessons to children with special needs. I only work on certain days so fortunately I have time to take care of your precious puppy whether it will be boarding, daycare, or home visits.

While your puppy is with us, I will be incorporating basic training through positive reinforcement as I do with Mr. Japan and they will have plenty of exercise outside at the park and in my home. With your permission, I can also take them to dog parks for extra play time with other doggies.

I will be happy to host housebroken and friendly doggies who are up to date on all vaccines and deworming in order to keep the safety and well-being of everyone. I unfortunately will not be able to host dogs who are aggressive towards other dogs or have excessive barking issues as I live in an apartment. Sorry :( I will be able to accommodate any special needs your puppy may have and provide convenient pick up/ drop off to and from your home. I do ask that you provide food for your puppy during their stay as some may have issues adjusting to another type of dog food they are not used to. No need to bring any treats (I have plenty!) unless your puppy has any allergies.

My motto is "a tired puppy is a happy puppy". With all of the mental exercise, physical exercise, lots of playtime and of course lots and lots of love, I'm sure your puppy will come home to you exhausted but a super happy puppy!

We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Aki & Mr.Japan

Aki has been taking care of my husky mix for over a year now during my business travels. I always feel good about leaving her with Aki because I know she is in good hands. Aki always takes good care of her and I never have to wonder how she is doing because Aki gives me plenty of updates with pictures and videos. Sometimes I think my dog loves her more than me. She seems to listen to her better and is behaving better in the videos! I would highly recommend her services.

I have known Aki for almost 20 years and she has always shown great love and care for the pets she's come across and owned herself. Especially with dogs. And elephants if given the opportunity!
What sets her apart from ordinary pet lovers is the genuine care and wellbeing she wants for all pets. This was evident to me by the way she and her husband had decided to join a dog fostering program and decided to adopt the first one they fostered! Your pet would be in great hands for sure with Aki. I can guarantee you that.

Akiko would be great for DogVacay because she is attentive, loving, and makes following rules fun for dogs. I have left my dog with Akiko when I leave town for the past 6 years and I never have to worry because she will take care of any dog as her own. She has the health and well being of dogs she cares for in mind at all times. She will keep them engaged and lead them with clarity and proper rewarding (treats and love). I highly recommend Akiko if anyone needs to leave their beloved K9 during their travels.
