About Sonia

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been a petsitter on Rover.com a bit longer so feel free to check out my multiple reviews on there as well (message me for link as links are not allowed to be posted on here).

Responsible, hardworking and a huge animal lover. When my friends travel I'm always the first person they ask to pet sit for them. I love keeping dogs entertained and I make sure they are exercised regularly. I go for hikes (like Runyon and certain pet-friendly Malibu hikes) quite often and love to take four-legged companions with me. It's important to keep them stimulated mentally and physically.

I've taught many dogs commands like "sit," "stay," and "down." I have fun with them and don't mind getting dirty. I will very carefully attended to your pets needs while you're away so you can enjoy a worry free trip/vacation/etc.

Why I love dog sitting:
I've been a dog lover all my life. There was always a dog in my house. I've also pet sat for two years now. I do have a primary job, but enjoy doing this on the side.

My experience administering medication:
Yes, I'm very responsible and have no problem administering medication.

I like to know the dog's usual routine so that I can follow it and make sure he/she doesn't feel stressed in their pet parent's absence. I'm very flexible with dog behaviors and have experience with walking dogs who have leash aggression etc, but must be told about it ahead of time so I can prepare.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
That is completely up to you and your pup. I know some pet parents like to sleep with their dogs, while others prefer a more strict crate schedule. Just let me now and I'll be happy to make your pet feel at home with whatever sleeping arrangements he's used to.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work from 9-5, Mon-Fri. The rest of time I can spend with your pup :)

In your message (or after we agree on a meeting) please include all facts regarding your fur baby's personality, quirks, likes, dislikes, temperament, behavior around other animals/humans/children, how long you walk them etc. Since I usually like to spend as much time as possible with the pup in their home so they don't feel lonely without their parent please let me know your policy on having house guests visit.
