About Alysha

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!
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.
