About Irine

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a family of 3, myself, my partner Michael and our dog Leche. My partner and I are in our 50s. I am a freelance graphic designer who works from home and spend most of my time at home except for occasional short errands.

We love animal and have several years of experience caring for dogs and cats. We live in a spacious two bedroom apartment in Kitsilano across an urban park and a short walk to the beach.

Our dog Leche is a Bichon Frise mix. She is very sweet, affectionate and loves to socialize with other dogs. I adopted her while I was completing my internship in California a few years ago and she has been an important part of our family since then.

We always give the dogs under our care plenty of potty breaks during the day (every 4 hours) and take them for longer walks twice a day, first at mid day (usually an hour walk) where we may take them to the off leash beach area at Hadden Park and spend some fun time with them playing fetch. We would take them for another walk (about 30 minutes) after dinner (7-8 pm), and give them another potty break before bed time. Your dog will have so much fun with us and will receive the best care and love.

Irine is a true animal lover! Irine treats animals as kindred spirits and makes sure they have the attention they need. If it’s walking, special needs or just cuddling, she’s always there for them.

In addition to having her own adorable (and adored) dog, Leche, Irine has helped me look after various dogs in Vancouver, BC. She's walked Mox, a strong, strapping Sharpei-and-something-else mix along most of the beaches in Kits and BC. And we've taken Daisy, a Golden Doodle, on many long rambles through the Endowment Lands. Dogs know that Irine is a good person. They seem to sense that she is a 'dog person,' and love and trust her immediately. She's also a cat person - the only one I know who, when she had two cats, Sid and Hazel, could get them to accept a bath without total mutiny. I'd trust her with any pet of mine.

Irene was truly amazing with our dog Kona. You could tell she really cares for dogs and went the extra mile to make our dog, Kona's, stay a great one. We will definitely leave Kona with her again.
Irine was great to work with. She was very flexible about pick up and drop off times, and she sent pictures and text messages to keep me updated. She took particular care of my dog when she became frightened by New Year's Eve fireworks and sent a message to let me know about it. She took my dog to an amazing dog park too!

It was a great experience and I would definitely have Irine again as a pet sitter and recommend her to others.

I left my little maltese dog Luke to Irine for about 10days while we were overseas for a holiday. Irine took a great care of him, a lot of photo updates, very cautious with his food and other details. I can tell when Luke's home he had a good and relaxing time. I couldn't be happier with everything! Highly recommended. :)

Communication and planning was extremely easy with Irine. Loved how she updated us with pictures of Luna while we were away on vacation. Thank you so much Irine and Luna can't wait to stay with you again!
Irine shows lots of love and patient to my little Leo, who is only 3 months old and very energetic. Leo behaves so good and never make mistakes on the carpet even since he came back from Irine's; I believe Leo must pick up some good behaviours from Leche. :)

I would definitely recommend Irine to people who is looking for a great sitter for his/her puppy.
