Hi - I'm Bonnie, and that's my mom Alyssa : ).
We live in Silver Lake, just a couple of blocks from the reservoir and dog park!
I get bored playing with my brother Clyde (cat) all day, so mom lets us host
sleepovers with new furry (and feline) friends.
We live in a duplex with a beautiful backyard! We're also close to many parks and hiking trails.
We wake up pretty early, around 7 a.m. each day. Mom takes me for a long walk every morning, followed by some playtime. She is so attentive and makes sure to walk me a lot, which is probably why I'm so well-behaved.
I'm crate trained, and mom says it's ok if you're not. If you have a special routine, we will be sure to follow it. My mommy is really good at crate training, potty training, and more - just look at me!
Mom used to have a pit and a boxer, so she has lots of experience with high energy dogs who need lots of discipline. I also help teach big dogs how to play with little ones and am always up for a challenge.
**Please note the following important updates as of March 2017 and make sure to ask any questions BEFORE booking**:
1. Silver Lake/Echo Park is a densely populated urban area that is uniquely surrounded by nature. With that being said, there have been recent reports of flea problems in the area and one dog who recently stayed with us WAS NOT on flea treatment and got fleas while staying with us. Because of this, we no longer watch dogs who are not on flea meds. All dogs must be on flea meds - no exceptions.
2. We live in a duplex and our neighbors love dogs, however, our neighbors will not tolerate barking dogs. If you know your dog has any anxiety problems or is a barker, your dog may be better suited at another host's home (even though we work with dogs who stay with us and try to make them feel as comfortable as possible). We are also willing to watch your dog at your dog's home if that will make you and/or your dog more comfortable. I am a working professional and do this because I love dogs - this is not my business, but I treat clients professionally and am willing to go above and beyond to keep clients coming back!
Feel free to message me with any questions or better - schedule a meet and greet!
Alyssa (and Bonnie)
