About Ava

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a spiritual life coach and mentor and also intuitive energy healer. I have a small clientele who I do regular weekly and monthly sessions with over the phone and also Skype since 2010.

I have worked with animals in the past as well with energy healing work, and it's really just a natural part of what I do when I am dog or cat sitting. It's very rare that a dog doesn't like me....if this ever happens, I know I have to really check my energy!!

I just returned from being in a deep spiritual immersion in India for a year and a half, returning here to Los Angeles and am not looking to take on any additional clients, but simply to spend some quality time one of my favorite things on the planet....DOGS!! (In addition to doing more writing for a couple books I'm working on...my autobiography and a book of poetry and prose streaming across my spiritual awakening journey.)

I'm renting a room in Miracle Mile at the moment, where I cannot have animals stay with me there, whereas my last two apartments in LA where I did dog sitting through here were fine, but I have also had many jobs watching the dogs and/or other animals in the comfort of their familiar environment which is also fine by me....having traveled all over India, I am very adaptable.

A small side note which will express the depths of my LOVE for dogs.....I became a vegetarian when I was 11 years old because I didn't want to eat "my dog" because I felt so connected to animals. :)

I really connect with dogs on a soul level that is almost hard to express....but I really just love spending time and cuddling with them and petting them for hours if they're open for it!!

So whether you're on vacation or have to travel for work or anything else last minute, I Am here to LOVE your doggie!

Oh, and I lastly will just mention as I'm reading these suggestions below on what to write...I don't smoke, or drink or do drugs. I am more of the meditating, yoga but responsible and clean anchoring in world peace with every breath kinda woman....and my inner circle is very small as I highly value integrity and authenticity in all my relationships and being in community with people who are living in service to themselves, the community and the world through their gifts and uniqueness...I could go on.....but if you're wondering if I'm gonna be out partying on a Friday and Saturday night...I'll leave that up to you...haha...or whoever wants to...I'll be at home with the dog...truly deeply happy. :)

Ava is absolutely wonderful! Over time on DogVacay, I've encountered a lot of people who are more interested in money than in you or your dog's needs, but Ava truly cares about your pet. I found her as I was scrambling to book a new sitter for Christmas after mine canceled, and she assured me that, she'd find a way to make it work even though she was in the process of moving. I was bowled over by the fact that this person I'd never met so genuinely wanted to help us. She was very sweet and loving with Mona, texted us pictures and handled all of Mona's special needs (she has some fear-based dog aggression and needs pills and for allergies), which is no small feat. It's a huge relief to have found such a warm, positive and loving "aunty" for my dog, and I can't recommend her highly enough!
Ava took great care of Jessiah. I needed a last minute emergency booking and after doing a day before meet and greet I felt very comfortable leaving Jessiah in Ava's care. She was very caring and I knew Jessiah would feel comfortable and enjoy his stay with her and her roommates. I knew he would receive lots of attention and I received lots of pictures and communication during his stay which I really appreciated. I would love to use Ava again when ever I need to board Jessiah.
