About Anna

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

My name is Anna. I have lived and grown up with dogs my whole life and would love to pet sit your little guy or girl while you are away. Everyone can get a vacation, including your dog!

I live in a condo in Rockridge that has a patio area, astroturf, and an outdoor open deck across the hall. Being environmentally friendly is important to me so I use green cleaning products, biodegradable poop bags, and natural treats.

During the visit, all dogs get the run of the house and we go on outdoor adventures. I am available for dog sitting, walks, treks, playdates, supervision, and washes (cuddles as well). Dog photo and text updates are provided for you at no charge. I have used a kennel once before and I know how anxious it can be and just a quick note can help.

The Canine Corolla is available for pickup and dropoff if you like too.

I have taken dog training classes previously and have volunteered at animal shelters. I am able to follow specific feeding, medication, walking, training, crating, and handling instructions as requested.

Self professed dog obsessed, I hope to take care of your pup!

Anna

Anna is fantastic! We are picky dog parents...with a shy, sweet, med/large dog who is pretty spoiled with us & gets very regular & steady companionship & exercise. We had previously had a dog sitter who was like family to us and when we moved, we were devastated to have to leave our pup with someone new! We interviewed and visited multiple dog sitters and dog boarding facilities. We were pretty disappointed by all that we saw until we met Anna! We have been THRILLED with the care that Anna has provided for our pup. She's a great communicator & seems to truly care for our pup. Our dog is always happy and clearly well cared for when we return.
We feel very lucky to have met Anna. Knowing that our dog is being taken care of by Anna lets us relax on our vacations. Anna has been a wonderful bonus to our getting settled here in the bay area!

Thank you Anna - appreciate you looking after the busy creatures, and love the picture updates that we get!
Thank you Anna for looking after our very busy boys!! You have been great with them.
As my dog ages, it has become more stressful when we have had to kennel him. Thankfully, I found Anna and she was able to watch Max in her home while our family was away at a family reunion. We appreciated her caring nature and our boy seemed to be at ease with her and the environment upon the first meeting. She made the entire trip stress-free by sending updates and pick-up/drop-offs were easy. We have definitely found a new companion for Max and will be calling on her again.

I needed a shot term dog walker and Anna was just perfect with Toby. It was a pleasure to come home to Toby having enjoyed walks around the neighborhood with Anna. She was very good with sending me photos of Toby on his walks and very professional through the whole experience. I highly recommend Anna for your doggy related help!

Anna was great! Very flexible with drop off and pick up time. Will definitey rebook!
When we dropped Luna off at Anna's, during our introduction talk, Anna gave us a solid impression. She clearly had done this before, she loves dogs, asked all the right questions and gave all the right answers. She knows what she is doing.
Luna responded positively as well and the next time Luna needs a home for the weekend we'll definitely contact Anna again.

Anna was a fabulous fit for our dog, Oscar. She was easy to stay in touch with and provided lots of picture updates of Oscar on his walks doing fun stuff around town. I know Oscar has found a new great buddy, I would highly recommend Anna as a sitter!

Anna was awesome!
Anna was wonderful - Enzo loved her and he had a great time. I enjoyed knowing he was in a safe place with a dog lover and seeing the pictures of his adventure. I was afraid he wouldn't want to come home.
Anna took great care of my 6-month-old pup while I went to a wedding in Sacramento this weekend. She's easy to communicate with and clearly loves dogs. Anna sent me a pic everyday, which really put my mind at ease. She's trustworthy and responsive — you can't ask for more!

Anna was great! Panda loved her from the start and I knew it would be a good match. She was flexible with pick up/drop off and seemed very comfortable dog sitting - definitely made me feel good about leaving Panda with her!
Anna was wonderful from beginning to end. We were nervous about leaving our pup with someone we didn't know...but after our initial meet & greet with Anna, we were 100% sure that our pup was in good hands. Anna's communication was great - we were able to arrange meeting her, drop off time for our pup and pick up time all seamlessly. We will absolutely 100% be using Anna the next time we have to leave time - IF she's available!! I would highly recommend Anna to any dog parent who wants their 4 legged family members to be well taken care of while you're away.

Anna was great - super flexible with pickup and drop off times and took wonderful care of my dog!
FIVE STARS -- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Anna gave wonderful and responsive care for my senior dog (and peace of mind for me!). She went the extra mile to try to get my finicky dog to eat her food and she was always resonsive to my texts. THANK YOU Anna!
Anna was such a great sitter. She was very accessible, accommodating and also friendly. She sent the cutest pictures of Chutney while I was on vacation. I've had reservations with many other hosts, and Anna has been my favorite because she was so easy going and Chutney seemed happy and relaxed when I picked her up. I'm sure I'll be seeing you again soon, Anna! :)

Lexi had a great time with Anna! Everything went smoothly. Anna is an awesome host!
Anna was an incredible host! Our dog, Olive, had a great time and came home tried from their walks and playing. So grateful Anna was able to help us out!
Anna was just great.
She was quick to respond and very accommodating. She sent us text updates and photos of Chloe, and took her out for long walks- much better than a kennel or those so called "doggy hotels." Anna's personal attention made all the difference, and even when our return flight was delayed 3 hours, she was flexible on the pick up times.
I can't recommend Anna highly enough- we'll definitely be using her services again.
Thanks Anna!

Anna was a wonderful host! She accommodated our last-minute request and was very quick to respond. We also received photo updates throughout Molly's stay :-)
Anna did a wonderful job caring for our furry guy! She is very friendly and prompt in communicating, and we returned home to a very stress-free dog. We received daily photo updates and felt confident while we were away that he was in good hands! We received immediate communication when Anna was worried that our dog wasn't eating. Fortunately it was just one of his idiosyncrasies, but we really appreciated knowing she was ready to take additional steps if it seemed like something out of the norm. Very dog friendly home and near a vet for added peace of mind. We will certainly use Anna again, and we highly recommend her.

Sady immediately felt comfortable with Anna. We loved the photos throughout the weekend and knowing that she was in good hands. Anna's service of dropping off our pup if necessary was also really helpful. Highly recommend.
Bear just got back from his first fantastic stay with Anna. He's a big dog who likes to laze around most of the day, but also relishes his daily walks. Anna's neighborhood seems great for walks, with plenty of sidewalks and messages from other dogs to sniff, and her apartment has some great nap spots.

Anna was very responsive to my instructions, and went above and beyond what I explicitly told her to do for Bear (for example, she asked me if she would need to administer any medications, and she checked Bear's poop for worms on each walk). She also understood my traveling-dog-parent anxiety, and every time I checked my email to see if she had sent me a photo update, sure enough, there was another photo of Bear having a wonderful time!

By the end of the stay, Bear was both happy to see me and anxious to leave Anna. He shouldn't worry — next time I have to travel without him, he'll get to see her again!

Anna is great! Monkey and Chewy had a great time with her and she texted us pics of them enjoying themselves each day.

This was Chewy's first time with someone he didn't know, so her constant communication definitely put me at ease, and her experience with pups and caring nature put HIM at ease!

Will definitely reserve with Anna again, thanks!!

Anna was a great host for our pup. She is super nice and was flexible with drop-off and pickup. We got some cute photos of our dog snuggled up on the couch and sitting out in the park. We will be using Anna again!
Anna was great, this was my first time leaving my baby, but I got to meet Anna Pryor to leaving him. I received updates that put me at ease. I really love the fact that my baby was the only doggie there (he prefers people to animals). Overall she was great and I will use her again.

Anna was great! Very flexible with pickup and drop off times. Winky was happy after pickup.
Anna is amazing! She not only was super flexible with my drop off and pick up times, but I forgot to bring Lucy's food and she said it was no problem and she picked some up for me. She sent me a text and picture update everyday and even took Lucy for a walk around the lake. I will definitely use Anna every time I go out of town from now on!

Anna was wonderful. She took time out of her schedule to meet my grumpy little pup, Otto, before he spent 4 days with her. Her home is beautiful, spacious, and pet-safe. Otto had plenty of walks, snacks, and affection. Anna also saved me when I misread my travel plans and got in later than expected. I cannot say enough kind words about her. Perhaps most importantly, I was able to enjoy my weekend with peace of mind.

Thank you, Anna!

Anna was very flexible with my drop off and pick up times for my puppy. She was also very patient with all of my requests and didn't get upset when my puppy accidentally pooped outside her door. Canela definitely had a great time and I loved getting the picture updates.

Anna watched our two dogs on just a day's notice and was wonderful with them.
Anna is great! Bandit had a wonderful weekend! She sent us pics and a video of one of their outdoor adventures. Would recommend her!!
Anna was great with our new 6 mo. old pup. Gave her lots of walks, let her roam throughout her dog-safe apartment. Our dog almost didn't want to come home. We'd use her again.
Anna was great! Very professional and attentive - sent me pictures all weekend.
I couldn't imagine a better dogsitter than Anna! She responded to my request right away & was so gracefully accommodating to my rushed schedule. She was genuinely thrilled to be hosting my dog & I felt so safe leaving him in her competent care. When i walked into her apartment, she had even written a note on her hallway chalkboard that read "Welcome, Hank!" with a pawprint & had completely dog-proofed her apartment for his safety. She sent me photo & text message updates throughout the weekend to show me that Hank was having the time of his life. My flight got delayed on the day I was supposed to pick Hank up & Anna graciously stayed up late to take care of him for a few more hours until I could pick him up at her house. Anna is INCREDIBLE & I would recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, safe, caring environment for their dog while they are away! Your dog might be reluctant to go back home with you after a weekend at her house.
