About Lia

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Over the years I have obtained a total of 8 years experience dog sitting and walking. I was a regular for a few families back in high school and college and have sat my relative's pets throughout my life. I've also grown up with pets since I was little, including 3 large dogs and 6 cats. I can provide your dog with a safe, loving and comfortable environment while you're away. Whether I stay at your residence or they come to mine, my top priority is that they enjoy their time with me. I am a very patient, friendly, understanding, caring and playful doggie lover! As an extra bonus, I volunteered at a couple animal shelters in high school.

I live in an in-law studio, so although there are 5 other people living in the house above me, I am separate from them. There is a medium sized back yard for them to play around in and they're welcome to free range of my studio. I would love it if they make themselves comfortable on the very few pieces of furniture I own, and snuggle on my bed at night.... if that's their thing. I live a few blocks from Golden Gate Park, a couple dog parks, the Pan Handle, the beach and the Inner Sunset/Haight district.

I work part time at a restaurant, and as an actress. During a typical work day, I will be away from the house anywhere from 3 - 8 hours, depending on the job. Unfortunately the only time I can bring your furry friend along are to some of the film shoots. This means they would have to be comfortable being left alone at my house some of the time.

I have a list of references I can provide, a safe environment for your pup, confidence to handle difficult situations, lots of love, care, fun and play time.

Lia is so fantastic! She's down to earth, extremely responsible, and best of all, loves doggies! Her apartment has a great backyard for pups to run around. Highly recommend!
She is an awesome considerate host. I was happy to use her again!
Lia was such an awesome host for my toy poodle Truffle! She was warm, responsive, and professional at all times-- from the meet and greet all the way to my pick up. She was attentive to all aspects of Truffle's care and maintained steady communication with updates and photos for the entire week that Truffle stayed with her. I really appreciated her going out of her way to pick Truffle up from me and being flexible with my pick up as I was returning on a late flight. Additionally, Lia has a cozy place with a sweet backyard that Truffle was able to enjoy. Truffle was clearly bummed to leave Lia's care with all the attention she gave him! Overall, I highly recommend Lia and she will be my go-to on Dogvacay the next time I leave town.

She was very communicative with me during my dog's stay. She was thoughtful and really enjoyed taking care of Grover! There was a double booking error during my stay but she tried to correct it immediately and refunded me the difference. I would use her again.
