About Meredith

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*House visits and Overnights in your home!*

Absolute animal lover *I also do Cats! :)* and affection enthusiast who would be delighted to spend time with your furry pals and keep them company while you are away. Because of some recent changes to the rules in my apartment complex, I can no longer take on pups as tenants, (I am beyond devastated), but I can absolutely make house visits and/or stay overnight in your home. In my experience, this tends to be best for the dog anyway. They have less separation anxiety, as they are in a familiar space, and aren't as nervous in another person's territory. :)

I know it can be difficult to entrust a stranger with your personal space, so please see my past reviews for reference and know that I am happy to do meet and greets to put you at ease. I'll honor your home and privacy as my own and put your dog's needs first.

*I'm open to discuss stays at my apartment, but this is on a strict case by case basis aka Hush Puppies only. I've gotten too many noise complaints and can't run the risk anymore of upsetting neighbors and, you know, getting evicted and all that. So sorry about that, as I love having furry faces to come home to.*

No different than humans, dogs deserve to be given as much comfort, familiarity and compassion as possible. I enjoy getting to know each dog's specific personality and work with their needs, energy levels, diets, etc. I will take your pooches on walks and hikes in order to keep them active and and allow them to get the most out of every day. :) After all, the earth's most loyal creatures deserve our loyalty, protection and love as well.

Experience:
I've been walking and caring for my boss's dogs for almost 7 years and I am a dog owner myself. I have a great deal of affection and patience for animals and know how to create a calm and loving atmosphere.

Why I love dog sitting:
All my life! I had a gorgeous dalmatian named Scarlet when I was a kid, and it broke my heart when we lost her. I've been wanting a dog of my own for some time and am finally in a stable place where I was able to foster and adopt one! I have a sincere love of animals, and the loyalty and interaction with a loving dog is the best there is.

My Home:
Comfortable, well sized apartment for one with bedroom, bath, kitchen, and living room. Plenty of space for dogs to lounge and play. Hard wood floors, which makes clean up after accidents much easier. Cozy and bright due to the large entry windows beside the mock fireplace.

About my yard:
Unfortunately, no back yard. The side streets of my neighborhood provide great exercise though and plenty of places to get some sunshine. I am also right down the street from Griffith Park and Baldwin Park and those are the locales I frequent with my own pup.

My experience administering medication:
Yes. My dog Axl needed to take a pill a day when I first got him, so I've become quite the master at it, and I also assisted in giving liquid meds to cats growing up.

Meredith lives in a cozy apartment that provides a warm, welcoming environment for anybody's pups. She has a pup of her own that loves to play with others and is looking to make even more friends!

Meredith loves to go on walks throughout the neighborhood, but also take hikes over at Griffith Park. Your pup is sure to have a great time with her and will be in great hands!

Meredith was an awesome host and Lola was nothing but smiles when I picked her up. I would definitely recommend!
Finding someone you trust to leave your furbabies with can be a daunting task. I was so glad to find Meredith! She stayed at my house for 4 days and I got lots of updates and pictures from her. I got home to 3 very happy pets! I would definitely love to have Meredith pet-sit for me in the future!

Meredith sat for my cats over 2 long weekends while I was on an extended trip. Communication with her was quick & easy, she sent pictures & updates while I was away, and I came home to the same clean, tidy apartment I left. All around great experience & would highly recommend to other pet parents.

Cookie's first visit with Meredith was for day-sitting. Meredith was very attentive and sent me pictures of Cookie relaxing. It was a nice day-outing for Cookie at Meredith's place of work.
Meredith was incredible with our fur baby Elsie! She sent us updates everyday and when we came home everything was so neat and tidy. Our dog loves her and can't wait to book her again! I highly recommend her!
Meredith was great with our little boy bandit! She worked with us and our last minute holiday travel dilemma and even dropped bandit off at our place on his last daycare day. She is very trustworthy as we handed her a key to our apartment with no hassle. Will definitely use her again. She also sends photo updates. Thanks!

Meredith was such a joy and so easy to trust. I have rather difficult/quirky pups and she made the entire process such a breeze- I can't even describe the ease of mind that comes with being able to go on a vacation without the worry and guilt of leaving the fur-babies behind. The house was left in immaculate condition, pictures were received, and my dogs were all in great spirits afterwards. Would highly recommend her to anyone!! Thanks, Meredith!!

Meredith was awesome. Not only did she attend to all my dog's unusual needs like meds and diapers but she even sent me beautiful photos of my dog. Would gladly call on her again.
Meredith was excellent in keeping us updated on our pups status whilst we were out of town. We felt confident that our gentle giant was taken care of. I highly recommend Meredith and look forward to working with her again in the near future.
Meredith is amazing. She is so great with our dogs and I feel completely at ease leaving them with her. She is trustworthy and caring. I highly recommend her to anyone.
Meredith was very friendly and professional. We hit a few snafus along the way and she handled everything calmly and professionally. I would definitely recommend Meredith and plan to use her services again in the future. I felt completely comfortable leaving my three dogs (all from shelters and all with their own little behavior quirks) with her.

Meredith was absolutely fantastic. She sent lots of photos so I was rest assured that Pocket was being taken care of and having a good time. She let me book last minute and was responsive to texts. Great experience!
Meredith was the best! She took care of my dog while I was out of town and from the first meeting we knew Bella would be in great hands. She sent us pictures every day and made our dog feel at home. She is great and I would recommend her if you need a sitter.

Meredith is fantastic. She made it easy for us to leave our dogs- which doesn't happen often. She was so sweet and nice with them, sent us gorgeous photos which made the kids so happy and made me super comfortable. One of our dogs has a challenging personality, which she managed perfectly, he was extremely comfortable with Meredith right away. Our dogs were exhausted and content when we returned home. Meredith went above and beyond when caring for our dogs- our house was cleaner when we returned than when we left. This was an amazing experience and I highly recommend Meredith.
