Hi, I am Anna and I absolutely love all dogs, even the stubborn ones :) I am very active in Santa Monica and can provide whatever care is needed for your pup while you are away! My dog Ari and I love going on walks and runs and to Joslyn Dog Park, but his all time favorite is playing swim fetch down at the dog beach.
I am very comfortable with all types of dogs and have extensive experience with shelter pups, dogs with behavioral issues, and with special needs.
Because I store my paddle boards in my home, I do look for dogs that are not big chewers :) Other than that, I am able to care for dogs with a variety of personalities and needs. My cat also keeps to herself quite a bit and is good at making weird noises so dogs leave her alone, in addition to being quite stealth haha.
During the week, I work very flexible hours down the street at Hulu, typically 10am-5pm, but if your dog needs full-time supervision I can work from home so long as my work schedule permits, which we can discuss prior to booking.
On weekends, your furry friend and I will be very active going on lots of walks and doggie excursions depending on your individual needs. For senior dogs, I can relax with them, give lots of hugs and kisses, and make sure they are cool and comfy while you are away.
I have a lot of experience with training, though my shelter dog, Ari, still needs work :) I am happy to provide any training needs you have for your dog as well and use the same commands/language you do so it's easier for your pup to keep up on any progress you've been making.
**my DogVacay settings are set to only accept one dog at a time but I will gladly take two dogs from the same household, so feel free to message me if this applies to your situation**
You can expect a safe and fun walk around Santa Monica and I will provide a tracked walk if you prefer using a dog walking app that will text you when I pick-up your dog, when I drop your pup off, and whether or not they went potty, in addition to a picture of the route taken on the walk and the distance so you know your dog had a great time while sniffing around town!
Weekends (Sat-Sun): Anytime from 8:00am-11:00pm.
Weekdays (Mon-Fri): Anytime from 6:30am-9:30am and 4:30pm-11:30pm.
I look forward to caring for your pet!
