Giving dogs the love they deserve has been my life's mission, so know that I will treat your fur-baby as my own while you are away.
MY EXPERIENCE -
I have been an animal lover my whole life. Growing up on a family farm has given me the experience of nurturing a wide range of animals, such as chickens, pigs, dogs, cats, small rodents and aquarium life.
I have been an avid volunteer since childhood with my home town's local dog rescue organization, Scooters Pal's, helping my Nana foster abused and neglected dogs find new forever homes, walking dogs of all breeds and sizes. I have also worked adoption events and fundraisers and fallen in love with every dog that has come into my life.
MY PLACE -
My fiancé, Ryan, and I live in a spacious studio located in the Koreatown/Mid-Wilshire area.
We have lots of green grass surrounding our building to run and play.
We don't have any dogs or cats, so your pet will be the center of doggy attention in our home. (We will be moving this fall/winter to a bigger space, and until then I will not be able to watch dogs over 40 lbs. because I want your pet to have as much space possible to play and relax.)
Our pets consists of a caged rats and a turtle. Depending on how our Meet-n-Greet goes, we can put the rats in a separate room on a high surface: out of sight, out of mind.
VACAY ACTIVITIES -
While your pet is in my care, we will go on wonderful walks frequently, anywhere from 2-4 hours per day, depending on your pet's activity level.
If your pet is with us for more than 3 days, we will ask your permission to take them on hikes to keep them nice and occupied.
We love to play and snuggle and go outside. Your pet will be well loved in our care.
RATES & SERVICES -
The services I provide range from pet sitting, house sitting, dog walking, and pet check-ins to your home. I am able to watch over any kind of pet you have, and if you have any special requests please feel free to contact me and I can answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Depending on the service you request, we can come to agreement on a custom quote that works for both of us. Please don't hesitate to ask.
For dog sitting and walking, my rates are as listed.
IMPORTANT NOTES -
YOUR PET WILL NEVER BE LEFT UNATTENDED. When I say this, I mean at all times your pet will be under adult supervision, by either me or my fiancé.
Pick up/Drop off times: 7am-10pm. No exceptions. Please update me if you are running late, your safety is more important to me than your punctuality.
Dogs must be friendly to other animals and able to walk comfortably on a leash. Please inform me if you have a pet that can't be kept with other dogs and I will arrange for individual care.
Pets must be sent with plenty of food for their stay.
Leash, collar and identification tags must be provided. No exceptions.
Please include emergency contact information and vet location.
Please send a comfort item with your fur-baby so they can have a part of home with them.
