About Skylar

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Skylar and I have a dog named, Ringo, who is 62 pounds of PURE LOVE. He is a mixed breed (Black Lab/Australian Cattle/Blue Heeler) and loves making new friends. I rescued him when he was 3 months old, from Best Friends Animal Society, and we have been best buddies ever since. He is completely house broken and loves to hike Runyon. If your dog also enjoys hiking, then this just might be a match made in puppy paradise!

If my apartment complex did not have restrictions I would offer to host all breeds, but unfortunately I cannot have Doberman's, Akita's, Husky's, wolf hybrids or Pit Bulls.

I live within walking distance from LACMA and can guarantee your dog at least 3-4 walks/day around the neighborhood. As noted in my household description - my primary/personal outdoor area is my balcony however, that will not be the primary outdoor area for your pup. Your dog will have access to the community grounds, under my supervision, which has designated Doggy areas with both real and synthetic grass.

Depending on the size of your dog(s) and their potty break needs, I will walk your dog according to the routine that they are used to and separtely from Ringo to ensure that your dog has his/her own privacy and alone time to do their biz :)

When I have dogs staying with me in my home, I try my best to make them feel as comfortable as possible. They can sit next to me on the couch or hang out on the bed; Whatever makes them feel most at home is cool with me.

I am often picking up treats at The Dog Bakery for my furry kid and with your permission, I would also spoil your four-legged baby during his/her stay with us (my treat).

Ringo is a wonderful playmate and enjoys being around both big and small dogs (he is very gentle with the little ones). ALL IN ALL: We like to chill, love to cuddle and are super excited to meet your dog and make a new friend!

PLEASE NOTE: My rates change during holidays.
Boarding: +$15/night
Daycare: +$10/day

Photos and video updates of your pet will always be included :)

If you are searching for a dog sitter in the LA area, don't even think twice about working with Skylar. She is a FANTASTIC pet sitter and will treat your pups with the utmost care, love, and respect. Shortly after I rescued my 6 month old puppy, Chocolate, I was notified that I needed to travel out of town for work for 2 weeks. I was extremely nervous about boarding and was uneasy about having to leave my baby for such a long time since we just started training him. I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars to bring him to a pet hotel or a fancy facility and after a friend of mine introduced me to Skylar, I knew I wouldn't have to. She gave me an INCREDIBLY generous rate for the 13 days that I was out of town and even went out of her way to buy extra food for my puppy since I hadn't left enough for him during his stay. (She kept a copy of the receipt and of course, I reimbursed her). Since she had a crate in her home from when her dog Ringo was a puppy, she saved me the hassle of bringing my own to her apartment, and continued to crate train Chocolate. If you have a puppy she will probably be willing to do the same!! Chocolate and I just love her and you will too!

If you're looking for a fun, loving, caring woman to watch your baby, Skylar is the one to call. I happened to meet Skylar at the dog park a few weeks ago. I admired her as she cared for her dogs. Skylar was extremely attentive and playful as opposed to others I saw that day. I later found out that the dogs she brought that day weren't even hers! It amazed me to find out she was treating other people's dogs as if they were her own. When I leave town I dont even think twice about who to call anymore. I promise that you will be a satisfied customer!

I highly recommend Skylar if you are looking for a nice, trustworthy and caring pet sitter. I moved out to Los Angeles with my pup Charlie 6 months ago. I was recommended to Skylar by a friend and couldn't be happier with her! Skylar watches my boy 3 times a week and sometimes on the weekends!!! She is constantly sending pictures and giving me updates throughout the day! I know when I drop Charlie off with Skylar he's in good hands! She is the best and I wouldn't deal with anyone else!!

I have known Skylar Rosenthal for over 10 years now and over that decade have never seen a trace of a bad doggy bone in her body! She is an absolute natural with animals, but in particular dogs have always stood out as her calling. Skylar has owned two dogs (Bentley and Ringo) over the time in which I have known her and she is always keen to put their needs before her own. One situation which truly displays Skylar's passion for dogs was last year with her labrador Ringo. Skylar had a very important presentation to make for work, but when she woke up in the morning Ringo was clearly under the weather and needed assistance. At the time, Skylar was unaware of a service like "DogVacay" and had to turn to her natural doggy instincts to give Ringo the utmost attention he deserved. In that day, not only was Skylar able to find out that Ringo was suffering from an ear infection and have him treated by a vet, she was even able to make it to her presentation with certainty that Ringo was in good hands. All in all, I would not think twice about having Skylar watch after my own or someone else's dog. She is one of those people that has a natural inclination to put a dog's needs before her own which is exactly what I would be looking for in a dog sitter.

Skylar is amazing with animals. She looks after my French Bulldog St. Paul when I leave town. I couldn't live without her. She is punctual, reliable and has a sweet, caring nature. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a trustworthy dog walker.
