My love for animals was sparked by my family, but mostly from my great-Aunt. She cared for a lot of animals, mostly strays that she would find homeless or abandoned near her building.  She also rescued many dogs from the shelters that were destined to be destroyed. They lived happily in her large enclosed back porch. She owned a two flat building on the south side of Chicago. Visiting my Aunt was fun because I knew there would be a new cat or dog living there. A typical day at her house when we would stay over: 4 a.m. wake up would consist of lots of mopping, scooping up poop from the cats section, sweeping, laying down fresh newspapers and we would receive some cat licks, cats rubbing up against us, occasional nip (love) and lots of purring. The dogs the same cleaning applied to them. I was young and energetic so daily exercise with the dogs was my responsibility. If I wasn't taking care of animals at my great aunt's house, I was at my grandmother house with her dog. I would even play with strays in my neighborhood and even bring some of the strays home. People called me the "Animal Whisperer" -a title some of my clients call me still today.  
I took in stray cats, cleaned them up, I even picked off my fair share of ticks and fleas, took care of sick cats, and nursed them back to health. I also found them safe loving homes with my friends and neighbors. Of course I kept a few for myself.
I started this business to be an extra hand with the over load of day to day living for pet parents, and for daily cuddles with my animal friends. Thank you for allowing me into your pet(s) life.

I have a BIG heart and would love to take in every dog i meet but my heart grows BIGGER about safety.
Thank you Enjoy the service. Love Desla

Desla is an amazing dog sitter. From the beginning of the process to the end, she was incredible. She is super duper loving to my baby. We visited the day before just to make I get to see the place firsthand. She made sure that Flash was comfortable even before our vacation day. It's like I was never away from Flash, as she kept me posted on all his fun activities. The best thing was Flas also received a bath on his last day. I will definitely recommend her to other owners and keep her for future vacations.
My little yorkie Torta had a wonderful time at Desla's place! Desla was really helpful during the stay and I could pick my dog up for a few hours each day, Desla sent me updates (photos and videos) during Torta's stay, which made me calm and reassured that he had a good time and was well taken care of! I would totally recommend others to book your dogs stay with Desla, she is a sweetheart with experience and a BIG dog lover :)
Dogs seemed to have a great time and felt comfortable. I felt comfortable with her texts and photos updating me having fun!!
Zeus was a happy camper. We got videos and pictures sent throughout his stay. He seemed to be very happy and very much himself while we were away.

Having someone care for our dog in a manner much like we would, gave us a great sense of joy and we were able to relax and enjoy our holiday.
This was our first experience with Desla and also the first time we left him where he would be around other dogs. I was a little worried that he would not do well with other dogs around. I was wrong. He seemed fine being around this group of dogs.

Desla keeps them very well behaved. Her home is clean and kept so that the dogs have an area just for them. He was bathed and his things were clean when he came home. There was no adjustment period, which always happened when boarded at the vet.

We are already planning our next trip and Zeus' stay at Desla's.
Desla was very in tune with dogs needs. I could tell she had a lot of knowledge about the psyche of a dog. I also liked the fact that the dogs she was caring for were all familar with each other, and that furthered the calm environment. She posted a lot of pictures of Groot having a good time on walks and laying on laps, which is his favorite thing to do. I would use her again and recommend her. Oh and she also gave my baby a bath. He was so clean and smelled terrific when I picked him up.
My yorkie had such a fun week and a half with Desla and her family....played on the beach and dog park and was loved. Made my trip si much better knowing she was so well taken care of...I highly recommend Desla.
She is amazing !
It was such a relief to find Desla! I needed someone that would give my dogs ALOT of attention & love while I traveled. She took them to the dog park to frolic, she gave them lots of cuddle time and love. She sent daily pics and videos and responded immediately to my texts. I will definitely be using Desla again and would highly recommend her.
She was a great sitter and i will always recommend her to anyone she was awesome with Frapy. Thank you
Desla was great! We had to leave Cosmo for 5 days, but she made sure we were up to date with photos and videos (even as soon as we dropped him off). He became part of a pack and we could tell was happy the whole time. Will definitely re-book if we needed a sitter :)
Desla took great care of my dogs! they looked very happy in all the pictures and videos she sent me daily! She even gave them a bath!! they came home happy and soft! will definitely leave my dogs with her again! i feel like i left them in perfect hands! thank You!!!
I knew from the meet-n-greet with Desla my dogs were in excellent hands. She knows what she is doing.
Desla is great about sending pics and videos daily, my dogs were very happy with her, but specially feeling at home.
Desla goes way above and beyond what is expected...She is the best!!!
Thank you Desla!!!
Catalina, Lorenzo
Desla was great! She was here on time to take Kiwi out, made sure she got water and treats and sent pics and videos of their time together! Her love for dogs shows! Thanks Desla!
Desla was amazing with our little dog! She send pictures & videos all the time, so we can see how our dog enjoy the time. She is so commited to dogs, making a LOT of walks and activities with them... Our dog even took a shower :-)
Next time we need a dogsitter, we'll definitly contact her again!!!
Desla is great! I was nervous about leaving my pup because I'm a new dog mom and had not left her in someone else's care before. But Desla made the experience comfortable, worry-free, and entertaining! She sent me tons of photos and videos with updates every day!! My pup got along well with Samba (Desla's sweet dog) and I was happy that my dog had dog-friends to play with for the week. My dog seemed to be in a nice calm atmosphere, but also had tons of fun on her walks and at the dog park. She also came back bathed and super soft. I won't hesitate to use Moment to Pawz services again :)
Excellent care and attention
Amazing! :)
We just moved to Miami and we had to stay in a hotel the first 3 days until our house was ready to move in so i didn't want to keep my dog inside the hotel for 3 days so one of my friends told me about DogVacay .........awesome app and Desla was GREAT!! very easy to reach and she accommodate to my schedule, after moving stuff and getting the house ready I had to go and pick up my baby, he was so happy and around other dogs,we definitely calling Desla again!!
I cannot begin to say how grateful i am to have found Desla. I couldn't ask for a better person to leave my baby with. She was responsive to my questions, very proactive, showed a genuine interest in the wellbeing of my dog. While i was on my trip she sent pics and videos so i could se that my little one was fine. I am so happy with my experience.
Thank so much Desla!
Desla is a very good pet sitter she send me pictures and updates all the time, pedro had a great time at her place , i will have her on mind for my next vacation
Delsa took great care of my pup, who came back better behaved than when I left her. There were daily updates with pictures and video clips.
I had a last minute dinner to attend in Miami and needed a sitter for my pup urgently and last minute. Desla responded right away and was great to coordinate with. We've always had pup sitters come to our house so this was his first time away with a sitter (big step for us). Desla was great - she sent photo updates throughout dinner and took good care of him. When I picked him up I could tell my pup was happy and had bonded with Desla and the other pups at hers. You can tell Desla genuinely loves and cares for her pup clients. I definitely recommend Desla and will bring my pup back again. :)
Desla was my first dog sitter here in Miami. I was a little nervous of leaving my little Tina, a yorkie, for 4 days while I was off the country, but the service Desla offered to us was awesome and Tina had a great time with her.
Desla took the time to meet us prior to leaving Tina in her care, and during the meeting she made sure all her vaccines were update and she introduced Tina her other dogs to make sure they got along well. Definitely, her passion for dogs was evident at first sight.
I left Tina at her care and received daily photos of my baby at the park and at home, which made me feel pretty happy and satisfied.
When I picked Tina up she was absolutely gorgeous because Desla gave her a nice bath during her stay, it was awesome.
I would no doubt use Desla again and recommend her services to anyone looking for a responsible dog sitter.
I have left my dog with Desla on multiple occasions. The attention and care given to any dog she watches is incredible. I get constant picture updates of all of the adventures that a dog goes on when they stay with her. I will always be a client of hers bc I know my dog is in safe/caring hands when I am away.
Desla is absolutely the best! My family was away for spring break and this would be Cookie's first time with a pet sitter. Desla really went above and beyond! We received daily pictures and videos. She enjoyed the dog park and the interaction with other dogs in Desla's care. Desla treated her like her own pet. Her love of animals is simply unsurpassed. Cookie was in good care and she really enjoyed her vacation. Now, every time I go away, she is the first person I call! Hire her today! You will not be disappointed!!
She made my dog feel very happy, and I can tell they both were having lots of fun. Desla is great with dogs, and I can tell that beyond care, she gave lots of love.
