About Tanisha

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I attended Cal Poly Pomona University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science, Animal Health Science Degree. I have enjoyed working with animals for 10 + years now. I have worked professionally at a Dog daycare, Boarding, and Training facility. I have worked within veterinary clinics and hospitals, also as a Veterinary Technician at an Animal Acupuncture and Rehabilitation facility. This brought me much joy being able to aid in the recovery of pets that are dealing with different issues from arthritis, post- surgery, maintenance exercise, et cetera. My goal is to become a Certified Animal Massage Practitioner and add the service to clients that need this service for their pets. I also have been an independent dog walker and pet sitter, which I enjoy because I get to spend one on one time with the pets I am caring for, getting to know their individual personalities. I would love the opportunity to provide the best care for your pet(s), whether you are away or just at work and need someone to provide great care and spend time with them!

Tanisha was great with our lab. She sent pics whilst we were on our trip with updates, and she made us feel very comfortable. We will be using her services again.
This was the first time I used a service such as this so I WAS apprehensive.
My only other alternative was a vets kennel so I rolled the dice as I haven't left these pets there before either.
Tanisha did a great job as her previous reviews have testified
I received daily pictures and status reports and my apartment was in better condition than I left it
The additional perk was that Roxie got to hang with Tanisha's boys a little
and that Tanisha related to my kitty as well
Tanisha deserves consideration of anyone in the Waikiki area
Tanisha was amazing and we are so lucky to have found her! During the meet and greet, you could really tell she loves dogs and interacted with both of ours perfectly that I knew within minutes that she would be the best dog sitter. While we were on our mini vacation she would text daily letting us know how they were doing, along with a few pictures to make being away from them a little easier. Not to mention, she has an extensive background with animals which also allowed me to fully enjoy my time away, without worrying about how my babies were doing (at least not too much ;)). We will be booking with her for our future travels, and will be recommending her to anyone in need of a pet sitter.
Tanisha was wonderful. She was great with my senior dog and our playful cat. Super reliable, excellent communication and flexible. I felt completely comfortable with the care she gave my furry babies.
Hi. My name is Ozzie, and I am a nine yr old Shih Tzu. I'm an easy going dog, but I require a lot of attention when my mother travels without me. Sometimes I get anxiety and won't eat until I can't handle it anymore or even worse sometimes I get an ear infection from stress.

None this happened with Tanisha. She gave me so much love and attention that I was able to eat every day, and my ears stayed healthy too. We knew my mom would worry about me, so Tanisha made sure to send daily updates and photos of me. I tried to smile in my photos so my mom would know I was happy!

Tanisha was very clean and left the house spotless. I know my mom was happy when she came home because we have had other babysitters that weren't as clean. Tanisha exceeded our expectations!

One last thing, I have two crazy sisters (Audrey and Sophia) who are chickens that live in our backyard. I can't speak for them (because they aren't very smart) but they were happily sleeping when my mom came home and begging for treats, as usual, the next day.

I highly recommend Tanisha to watch me again and for any of you who want a responsible, professional and caring person to take care of your babies while you travel. My mom is already planning to have Tanisha watch me again in August! Yay!

Please feel free to contact me if you want more details. In my opinion, she is the best, and I am lucky my mom found her!


P.S. my mom, Nancy Lewis approved this recommendation!
Tanisha did a fantastic job with my 7 year old German Shepard. From the first meet and greet I could tell that she really loves dogs. I often feel guilty when I can't take my dog with me but I knew he was in good hands while I was away. I really enjoyed the daily updates and pictures. The house was very clean when I got home after my 10 day trip. When I got home my dog was very calm and happy-I think he was a little disappointed that Tanisha wasn't back though-he was searching around the house and yard for her! I will definitely use her again for my next trip!
Tanisha was fantastic. She was professional and our furry babies loved her. Our pets can be challenging since our 2yr old whippet is all energy and our 6yr old Irish wolfhound is timid. On top of that we have a cat. Let's just saythey can be a handful. . We appreciated her communication and daily updateShe was an excellent sitter. A A few things that really stood out for me were 1) how happy and calm our pets seemed when we returned. Of course they were happy to see us but they also seemed relaxed which is a testament to her work with them 2) Our house was clean. Before we leave, we clean our house. We know that furry babies shed and can quickly put the house in disarray. It was wonderfulfind our our home in the same state we left We are very grateful to have found her. it.
I was so grateful to have Tanisha watch Eddie while I had family in town. She was very attentive and sent several picture updates throughout the day which I truly appreciated! My pup is 10 weeks old and required a lot of attention but she was very patient with him and even did quite a bit of training while I was gone. She responded quickly to all communication and even straightened up the house before she left. I would highly recommend Tanisha as a pet-sitter and would love to have her back in the future!
