About Alysha

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work in discovery research at a biotech company nearby and have recently moved to the Bay Area for my job.
I have many many years of PROFESSIONAL experience caring for all types of pets and have a graduate degree in animal science. I have worked as a veterinary technician in a small animal hospital and continue to work with animals for the past 10+ years and have experience with dogs, cats, ferrets, pocket pets, rodents, etc. I also have been a volunteer (4+ years) for a French bulldog rescue (FBRN) that I adopted my previous dog from.
Leo (my German shorthaired pointer puppy) and I love to explore the Bay Area. We tend to visit the dog park and go for runs/walks in the local parks during the week. On the weekends we like to check out new places, we've taken adventures in Fort Funston, Point Isabel, Big Sur, Oyster Point, Wildcat Canyon and many others. The house is an inlaw unit, with a small fenced in yard and deck for the pets to play!
I look forward to spending time with and caring for your pets!

Just a few policies to help make things smoother:
*Pickup can be as late as 10pm, however after 9pm, you will be charged for another evening of sitting.
*Please confirm pickup and drop off times the day prior to your vacay, as it is often hard to adjust for last minute changes.
*I will accept 2 dogs if they are from the same family, please just send an inquiry.
*I require a meet and greet prior to sitting. This is just to ensure that all personalities are going to be a good fit!
*Any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me!
*I do not hold dates, unless they are booked directly through dog vacay, so it is best to book as soon as possible.

Alysha was amazing she fit right in with our needs and our dog absolutely loved her.
Alysha was extremely flexible with my flight issues and very understanding. She took great care of Lo (and she's a handful). Lo also loves hanging out with Leo! She's very responsible and straight forward so I trust her with Lo.
It has been a great experience having Alysha board my 2 dogs. She responded quickly to messages, accepted reservation promptly, picked up the dogs from the airport, provided succinct updates on how the doggies are doing, including pics in the nearby state park. She was flexible when plans changed, accommodating for the dogs needs. The dogs got hour to hours long playtime and walks each day, and clearly, at the end of the day they looked drained of their energy :). Alysha has great medical experience with dogs, and this was reflected in how she cared for the dogs, avoding maneuvers that might harm the dogs, and even gave my dog a casual allergy assessment. I would leave my dogs with her again, and I would recommend her services to a friend.
The dogs loved being at Alysha's
Great Experience!
Alysha and Leo are a pleasure to share time with. Alysha is a wonderful communicator and reliable honest smart woman. Leo is a sweetie and full of energy. Your pets are safe there. We look forward to future stay with them.
My dog came home from alysha's tired and happy! She took great care of her
Alysha was wonderful! She is very knowledgable about dog behavior and temperaments. I have great confidence in her and would not hesitate to call on her again.
Alysha is awesome! We had a meet and greet, and our pup loves her dog and her. I knew then that having her as our helper would be a good match. Alysha was responsive to our reservation, question and instruction. Our first visit after meet and greet went smoothly too! She gave us a report of how our pup was with her with a few pictures. I highly recommend her and would use her help again.
Simply said: Alysha is amazing!! She treated our pups just as she does her own, which is what every doggie parent could only hope for. They went on numerous adventures together, getting lots of exercise and social time. We received updated pictures and statuses on a daily basis which helped us enjoy our time away even more. And they both got along great with her pup, Leo!

Despite our pups having a grand ol' time, Alysha is an extremely down to Earth, friendly person. She's the type of person you would want as a friend, making it that much easier to trust her and feel safe with leaving the pups with her. You can also tell she really cares about dogs. She gave us some great tips and tricks we can use for them going forward too!

We will definitely book Alysha the next time we're out of town!! 5+ stars!
Alysha was amazing!! I needed emergency daycare for my dog Shastan, and all I got from other hosts were rejection messages (18 hours later), or that they were unavailable and hadn't updated their availability online. Nearly on the brink of tears from sheer frustration, I was able to instantly book with Alysha. Within minutes I had a message from her directly confirming my reservation and details sine it was my first time using DogVacay. Shastan has anxiety, which Alysha (with her vet tech experience) was able to patiently handle, and made my dog feel right at home. Also, her dog Leo is super friendly, and made the whole meeting process easier as well. He was cared for from 7am (with a morning walk and later on a hike in the Redwoods) through 7:30pm. She is very flexible and accommodating, and response quickly to any messages. I even got updates and pictures while I was gone. I highly recommend her!!
Could not be more happy with my sitter. Alysha updated us constantly on a daily basis. She uploaded videos and photos. She is well knowledgeable with taking care of pets due to her background and certifications. She is definitely my go to person for pet sitting. My dogs love her and so do we.
