About Malena

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a college student looking to broaden my dog care experience. I have studied basic animal care and have personal experience working with dogs, cats, horses, goats, chickens and various rodents. At home I have one dog(my baby), two family dogs, five goats and 16 chickens. I also have adopted a Beagle from my college's Veterinary Technology Program. So far, I have gained experience walking, properly feeding and cleaning up after dogs as well as other animals. I am offering dog walking, dog sitting in their home, drop ins and dog daily pet care (basic cleaning up after dogs home areas, etc.) I want to be able to take care of dogs on a daily basis; aside from my own.

Providing animal care in a Veterinary Teaching Laboratory, studying to become a Veterinary Technician, volunteered with cat adoptions for a pet rescue, have cared for my own dogs at home.

Why I love dog sitting
While growing up I had a chow-chow named Bear and a golden retriever named Abbey. I met Bailey and Casey, sibling long haired Chihuahuas and since then Bailey has become my baby while Casey is considered a family dog. She loves anyone who will give her attention. Then recently I adopted a Beagle from my school's Veterinary Teaching Laboratory .

My experience administering medication
I am comfortable giving medications from pills and chews to liquid forms.

Malena was wonderful! She watched our 2 dogs one of which is elderly and needed some extra care. She was very accommodating and stayed to play with them through the evening of our return since we were going to be coming home very late. Our dogs were very well taken care of, she sent us pics and updates, and our house was just as we left it. I would use and recommend her over and over again. Thanks so much Malena!

We never worry when Malena is here. We receive pictures and updates daily. Our pups love her.
Malena did a great job taking care of our dog. We will definitely call Malena again.
Malena always does a great job. We will continue to work with her in the future.
Malena has sat for our fur babies 2 times. There is nothing better than the peace of mind you feel when you know they are being cared for, played with & loved like you would, while you are away. The animals were all very happy, Malena sent frequent messages and photos. We strongly recommend her and will definitely be using her again!
