About Monica

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello Canine Cuties,

I'm an active young lady, who loves all animals and just love living in sunny San Diego. I don't have any pets of my own, so your furry friend will have my undivided attention while being away from their lovable owner(s).

Your pups will enjoy long walks around new parks and neighborhoods, local dog parks and daytime trips to the beach. A complimentary bath will also be given for any messy outdoor activities :) So just let me know!

I had a diabetic beagle named Daisy growing up, so I'm also comfortable giving shots to animals. I have previous dog walking experience and have cared for over 9 different families since joining this site. So give me a shout, as I'd be happy to watch your pup!

Host Requirements:
1. All dogs must be potty trained, bark minimally when indoors and does not chew on human possessions.
2. Please bathe and clip fingernails prior to drop off.

Please e-mail me if you have further questions. Thank you kindly!

We left Roxie with Monica for two weeks. This was a long time for us as we are very attached to her. Monica provided us with a steady stream of photo updates so we always knew Rox was having fun and doing well. We love Monica!!!
We love Monica! Our little Roxie is very nervous around new people but she warmed up to Monica right away. When I came to pick her up Roxie was very happy in her temporary home and it was obviously a good fit. Will be using again for sure.
Moni was AWESOME! She treated my fur babies like her own and took them on walks, to the beach and to the park. She sent photos and kept me updated along the way. One of my dogs is extremely nervous and the other is blind and they were both extremely comfortable. She is a great pup sitter!!

Monica was great with my 2 pups, Badger and TJ! They spent the weekend with her and came home tired and happy. Throughout the weekend she sent me photos of them happily playing in the park that I really appreciated. She was super easygoing, flexible and responsive to my needs. I would definitely book with her again! Thank you :)

Monica was an absolute DREAM for our dog, Malibu. We have a pretty high energy dog and Monica took her with open arms and enthusiasm! I was so happy to receive pictures throughout our weekend of them playing at the park together, and Monica was more than accommodating when our flight was delayed and we had to pick up Malibu a bit later on a Sunday night than originally expected. I would love to use Monica again! Malibu was exhausted for like 3 days after her weekend with Monica...and that says A LOT because our dog has energy! Great job Monica! ;-)
