About Alethea

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a stay at home mom that cares for my two k-nine daughters and my army son's samoyed temporarily. We have a large fenced in back yard with a large breed dog door leading into the house that stays open all the time. The water bowls stay full and fresh all the time. Lots of toys and attention all around. After 3 the rest of the family comes home and more attention and love to go around. Both of my dogs are rescue baby's. We understand that it is hard for your pet to be away from you. We will be as nurturing as possible to make the separation as easy as possible.

Alethea and her family is our go to pet sitter. Our pup loves his time at her home where she provides excellent care, exercise, and fun for our puppy. Thanks Alethea!
Outstanding care Could not have been happier Look forward to next time
She was great and our dog was very happy there.
Titus had a great time with all the dogs at Alethea's house! Thank you.
Alethea really seemed to be in tune with the dogs, and you could tell she really loves them!
Alethea and her family are awesome. They treat my Buddy like he was one of theirs and he never wants to come home he's so happy there. Alethea is always flexible and open to any scheduling issues or any issue in general I may be having. She genuinely cares that my pet and I are happy campers and we always are!

This was our first time leaving Koda anywhere and we were nervous. But Alethea is so awesome! It was nice to get daily updates of how Koda was doing, and to see pictures and know that she was doing well was comforting.
When we picked up Koda, she was tired from all the fun and she slept like a baby when we got home. We will definitely be using Alethea again in the future =)

This was such a great experience for me, and for my dog! He was well taken care of, exercised, fed properly,and made new doggie and people friends. Alethea sent daily texts and videos. My apprehension of leaving my dog with a stranger was immediately gone by the first morning I was away when I got the first video. I totally appreciate the kindness I felt in their home. Highly recommend!

Alethea was a wonderful dog sitter. She has a very sweet personality and my little corgi loved being at her house.
I was extremely satisfied she was excellent
Our two golden retrievers (9 years old and 4 1/2 months old) had the best time with Alethea. She sent us videos daily of the pups playing which we loved! As promised, our babies came home happy and completely exhausted. We will definitely be using Alethea next time my husband and I go out of town!

Before taking my dog I called and she was very sweet and reassuring about my dogs stay. When I arrived she was very welcoming and attentive. I love that she has a huge backyard just not so great that there are no trees in her backyard. I instructed that my dog should be fed 3x's a day 1 cup per serving and I prepared 6 cups per tuberware which I have 2, I also made it clear that my dog is a lazy dog being that he is a English bulldog because she mentioned she goes on long walks I told her long walks aren't for him. Suffice to say I pick my dog up and she literally fed him 5 cups of food in a 2 1/2 day stay and when I get there she tells me oh he may be tired we just took a 2 mile walk. Granted he had a nice place to stay she just did not do a great job at following my wishes to protect the routine and habits of my dog.

Althea was perfect for my large Golden and my poodle mix. She is very involved with the dogs and treats them well..like family! Pictures and daily videos. Daily walks, large back yard, and great beds to sleep on. I was afraid they wouldn't want to come home....but they were very happy and playful when we arrived for pickup ! Will book with Althea again!

Lily was one tired dog when I picked her up. She had so much fun at Alethea's - playing with her dogs, walks, hugs and LOTS of attention!
Alethea was so wonderful at sending photos and little videos of what Lily was up to. I really appreciated that.
I've already booked another vacay for Lily with her. I recommend Alethea highly.

Our pup, Blaze, had an awesome time at Alethea's home. She sends tons of updates, which was great for us as this was our first time away from Blaze. We'd highly recommend her!
Alethea has done a great job for us!
Stitch had a great time he met some new friends. Thank you for taking such good care of him. We will book again when needed.
Althea and her family were amazing with my 2 extremely opposite dogs (13 year old shy Maltese and 6 month old frisky lab). She paid very close individual attention to both dogs equally attending to their specific needs. It was an extended stay of 9 days, which made me nervous, but I got several updates with pictures and videos. My lab was well played with and came home with new tricks learned. My old lady dog was treated like a princess. You can tell that Alethea knows and loves dogs very well. She had full control at drop off which made me very comfortable leaving them, and they were clean and happy at pick up. You could tell that all of the dogs in her home look to her as the alpha. She has their full respect and has fun! We will be back.

Alethea and her family are excellent dog sitters. Sonny had a great time. I was attending a concert at Wheatland Amphitheatre and needed overnight care. Highly recommend them to care for your dog in Roseville CA. Leslie Gowell Olympia, WA
extremely friendly, Penny was able to sleep wherever she wanted to inside the house. Sent picture and video updates, which I loved!
Alethea did awesome job keeping our puppy happy while we were away. It was our first time to leave our fur baby but Alethea kept us posted with videos n pictures. She gave enough updates so we can enjoy our vacation without worrying about our puppy. Rummy loved her too much n will be happy to go back with her. Thank you all you did to keep Rummy happy. We were relax because of your awesome communication.

I am always nervous about leaving my little boy with anyone, but Alethea made me feel very comfortable about leaving him. The meet and greet went well so I was not worried about leaving him for a few days. He has special diet concerns and can only eat specific food. She took special care to ensure that the diet was followed. He is a mini-schnauzer and has quite the personality and Alethea and her fur babies took wonderful care to make him feel comfortable. I highly recommend Alethea.

Alethea was great with our Dog Ruby. My impression is that she is an honest and kind person that genuinely cares about the pets she is responsible for. Ruby was happy when we picked her up. We will be using Alethea again if we are ever in the area.
My dog had tons of fun with Alethea! He was exhausted when he got home which is a great thing for us. We will definitely use her again!
Great experience, it was our first time with a dog sitter, but it turned out to be great. Highly recommended.
They were great! Very nice people. Would highly recommend them. Thanks for taking care of Tory.
Our puppy had a wonderful stay with Alethea and we look forward to having him "vacation" with her and her lovely brood again!
Our experience using Alethea was great! She was able to get us in fairly last minute and was very quick in her responses. When we arrived at her home she made Star feel so comfortable and loved. I knew she was in great hands when I left. We got lots of updates along the way which made for a worry free vacation!!! We will definitely use Alethea in the future.

Jack's stay with Alethea was excellent! I will say that I was a bit nervous at first because Jack was the smallest of the bunch there. My nervousness was quickly put to rest as I watched Alethea take position as the Alpha. You can see she genuinely loves her hairy family and she took great care of Jack.

Omg, I couldn't have found a better home for odyss. It was like doggy summer camp. He was loved, got to play to his hearts content, and I was able to see it with pictures updates every step of the way. Odyss will be back. He even came home clean!!!!

It was my first time sending my husky to a dog sitter and I was very worried since he's a big, hyper boy and had little socialization with other dogs. I couldn't have asked for better service while working with Alethea. She sent me consistent updates, pics and videos of my dog being so comfortable and happy, which made me feel the same! Her dogs are sweethearts and my husky adored them, along with the other dogs. She goes out of her way to cater to each individual dog's needs which I really appreciate. She even gave my dog a bath right before picking him up. My Gunner was so sad to leave. Would definitely recommend if you need a dog sitter in the area! :)

Their home was clean and in no way smelled of dogs! Not sure how she managed that but I was impressed. She loves and treats the dogs as her own and even calls her own dogs her "daughters". My deafy was well taken care of and seemed to have matured during his stay by being around the other dogs. It was a good experience for him and I was able to take my trip peacefully without worrying about him. She kept me updated with pics and videos to let me know he was doing well. I am very happy with her service and would definitely use her again!

I met with Alethea for a meet and greet with my little 13 lb. dog. I was concerned about leaving my little dog with her big dogs. How every, I noted Alethea maintained control of all the dogs, so I let my Shadow with her. She sent me videos of my little dude playing with two pit bulls. Obviously my little guy thinks he is a bigggg dog and fell in love with her two pit bulls. He seemed very happy when I picked him up. However, since he is seven years old and her two were pups, my little guy was worn out and slept for quite a while when I brought him home.
I would recommend Aletha to friends.

I have been a DV customer for about 3 years now and while I have been happy with all of my sitters, Aletha takes her role to the next level. Our dog loves going visit her and I have total confidence that our dog is getting the "presidential"
Treatment.

Our 2-year old Honeybun is a 10# Brussels Griffon Terrier/Shi Tsu mix. We were a little apprehensive how she would do with Alethea’s big dogs. Having a meet and greet was invaluable in easing our fears. Getting photos and messages sent to us while away was great. As it turned out, everything went fabulously! We were assured Honeybun got along well with the other dogs in the house. Moreover, knowing Alethea is open to having Honeybun return assures us she was not too much trouble. We are so glad we found Alethea on Dog Vacay! Thank you!

My dog had a good experience at Althea's! I appreciate the daily video updates and the affordability of Kyna's stay. She really liked playing with the other dogs. Thank you!
My puppy had such a great time at Alethea's I'm pretty sure he did not want to come home with me! I cannot recommend her enough, she was so accommodating and allowed me to drop my puppy off the night before as I had an early flight the next day. When we arrived, she introduced me to her lovely family and 2 sweet dogs, showed me around her place and answered all the questions I had which put me at ease! She also made sure to send me at least one or two updates everyday with a ton of videos which I really appreciated. My puppy had so much fun everyday I don't think he had time to miss me! He also lost some of his teeth while he was there and had trouble eating his kibble so she went out got him some food the he could eat with ease (and even sent me back with some!) She went out of her way to make sure my puppy was well taken care of. I cannot say enough good things about Alethea! Thank you so much!!

I chose Alethea because her prices were good and she could give our little Shih Tzu a bath too. I was concerned about her larger dogs; but, a meet and greet convinced me it would not be a problem. When my wife had second thoughts the next day, she went for a second meet and greet and Alethea assured her everything would be just fine. FYI, my wife is over protective of our little 2 year old girl. Things went very well when we dropped Molly off and, after her bath, Alethea sent a picture and a note updating us that Molly and her dogs were getting along just fine. I was happy to hear that because Molly needs to learn to be comfortable with larger dogs and it is my believe, when we hire Alethea again, our dogs will end up being the best of friends. Now the hard part. I'm not sure if I should recommend Alethea because I don't want her to get too busy to take Molly again. (smile - just kidding) She's great and the odds are we'll hire her husband to do some landscaping for us too! So it was a win, win, win!

My dogs had a great time. They were well cared for and very pampered. I received videos, pics and messages every day. The day that we were to drop them off, one of my babies got sick and had to see the vet. She needed to have medication everyday. I couldn't take her with me so I was going to have to cancel my vacation however, Alethea agreed to take her and care for her in my absence. I was a bit nervous but after meeting Alethea and her family I felt comfortable in leaving her. I definitely would/will take my dogs here again. Thank you sooo much!!!

Alethea was amazing with my dogs. I don't even know that they missed us with how spoiled and loved they were there! I have found my sitter for sure. Highly recommend.
