I have loved dogs and been surrounded by them for my entire life. When I was born, my parents were already parents to a very human-esque Sheltie called BeeBop. Also in my life was my Grandmother's darling Schnauzer, Buddy. Growing up, my family also included Cheyenne, a sweet Golden Retriever, and Zinfandel (Zinny), a feisty, sassy little Schnoodle. The friendships that were established between myself and these dogs created a lasting imprint on my life. I can't go anywhere without stopping to meet every dog I come across. They fill me with such joy!
After moving to Los Angeles, I started to watch many dogs in the apartment complex I was living in. I gained experience in housing pets in my own home, as well as staying with them in their homes. I have lots of energy and enjoy taking dogs for long walks and hikes. Your pet will get plenty of playtime, love, and care.
I do live in a studio, so at this time I am mainly available to watch small to medium dogs. There is a little patio area where they can spend some outside time, as well as many parks and hiking trails nearby.
I have experience with puppies (including as young as 2-3 months), as well as older dogs (up to 14 years). I do prefer to work with dogs that are good with other dogs and people, as I live in an area where there are many of both. However, I will care for your dog just the same even if they don't get along so well with others!
In addition, I also have a lot of experience with cats and kittens. If you need your feline looked after as well, I am willing and able.
