About Irina

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a stay at home wife in a dog loving family of two that is looking to watch your dog of a small size. There are only 2 adults -myself and my husband Vitaliy- living in our apartment, and he is always ready to help in handling boarding needs.

I have lifelong experience with dogs and know how to handle dogs of all personalities.

I have a one year old Shih Tzu called Benny who is very friendly tempered who would like a playmate from time to time. Benny is fixed, so a dog of any gender would have a great time!

The area we live in has a very nice pet walk that we use two times daily for 1 hour walks.

Our ground level apartment is conveniently located inside of the Perimeter only twenty minutes from the airport.

Irina did an AMAZING job taking care of Casper for three days. She kept us updated everyday via pictures and descriptive behavioral characteristics of my dog each day which I very much appreciated. Her home was very clean and organized which reflected on how well she took care of Casper. We picked him up in the same condition we dropped him off and that's a relief for any dog owner. She also let us know that Casper and her dog, Benny got along well! Thank you, Irina!
Very clean and orderly home. Irina sent pictures and daily updates. My dog was happy and healthy when I picked him up. I definitely feel good using Irina again.
This was my first time ever using a dog sitter and my dog had such a great time. She is a sweet person and I would definitely be taking my dog back. He enjoyed his day with Irina and Benny.
This was the first time I used a pet sitter and it was a great experience. Irina took GREAT care of Charlie. It was nice that she has a pup of her own so Charlie had a fun, playful companion for the weekend!
Skippy was a repeat guest at Irina's home. She took great care of him. Thanks Irina & Benny.
Irina was excellent! She took very good care of our 5 month old puppy. She was extremely loving and caring. She took our puppy for long walks and sent us updates everyday. Our puppy enjoyed playing with her dog Benny who is very patient and playful. She is a wonderful sitter and highly recommend letting Irina dog sit for you. Thank you Irina for taking such good care of our puppy Skippy.
Irina's place is very neat and clean and she really goes above and beyond to make sure your dog is very well cared for. Chi Chi loved being at Irina's place. I would highly recommend Irina's place.
Irina is terrific! My pup seemed immediately at ease with her and was a happy and tired boy when I got back. I will absolutely have her sit for my little guy again - Highly recommend!
Irina was a great host to our dog Jessie! Very nice and helpful!
Irina was great. I met her before I made the reservation, and Leo loved her (as much as he would love strangers since he's always with me). She kept me updated daily with video and pictures. Leo even picked up some good habits from her dog Benny. I was at ease putting Leo's life in her hands, and I would trust her again. I wasn't able to pick-up Leo the time that I originally planned, and she was very flexible with it. I am very grateful for that. It's obvious that she puts in time and effort to make sure they're comfortable. I would definitely recommend her!
Irina and her husband took great care of our dog Bob. He is a rescue and was very nervous his first day and night, but by day 2 was comfortable with his vacay. Irina was so patient with our crying dog the first night, and took great care of him the whole time. He got his walks, had fun toys to play with, and got lots of love from Irina.
We rescued a puppy after booking a beach house for Spring Break that didn't allow pets so we were thrilled to find Irina. We knew Chance would need lots of attention and TLC being only 3 months old. Irina was great and sent us updates and pictures throughout the week. That helped to put us at ease so we could enjoy our vacation. Having Irina's pup Benny around was icing on the cake because the two dogs played together and kept each other company so Chance never felt alone. I highly recommend Irina's services!!
Irina was great with our Lily. We felt very comfortable leaving her with Irina.
Irina and her dog were very friendly and happy to host my dog Peyton. She has a clean and dog friendly home with a fenced balcony-perfect for sunning for the dogs. Her dog has a lot of energy and mine is much more laid back at 13 but they seemed to work fine together, even sleeping side by side on the couch. Irina was very easy to work with in coordinating pick up and drop off times.
Irinia was great. Highly recommend!
Irina was absolutely wonderful watching Chipper! She walked him on hour long walks multiple times a day, and he is worn out from his weekend stay, which means a lot with a 2yo Yorkie! Would definitely recommend her!
Irina s was great I would recommend her again ...
Irina did excellent job taking care of our senior dog Rosie. We have adopted her and she's been through a couple shelters so any separation with the us stresses her out, so we were very anxious to leave her for several days. But Irina put her at ease and made her feel welcomed, so by the time we retuned to pick her up she didn't want leave her playmate,Irina's dog.
Thank you for once again taking such great care of my puppy. And the pics you sent were adorable she seems right at home under your care.
5-stars. It is always nerve racking leaving your pup with someone new, but Irina instantly reassured me with her gentle nature as she met me outside and walked with me and my Emma into her home. She went over feeding, asked good questions such as Emma's diet, and behavior. Emma was a bit shy at first but she warmed up to Irina in no time. Emma loves Benny too and the photos during the day of Emma playing were thoughtful and appreciated. Highly recommend for others who have small dogs..
I decided to book two more daycare days simply because it worked out so well for both me and Emma. Emma loves to play and she perks up now if I say "wanna play with Benny today?"
Irina was great! she sent update photos and Roxy came home happy :)
Irina was excellent with my Moby. He came home happy.
Irina and her husband did a wonderful job keeping my pup, Rosie, for 4 days! I am always a bit nervous to leave her, as she is only about 4.5 months old and 7 lbs. Irina and her Shih Tzu, Bennie, greeted Rosie into their home and it did not take long for her to forget that I was leaving! They have a very nice and well kept home on the first level, so it is easy for Irina to take them out regularly. She takes them on (2) 1 hour walks a day, plus 2 shorter outings. That's a great way to get some energy out! Bennie was very playful, which kept my pup busy and happy. Irina was very patient with Rosie's puppy "habits", which I appreciate. She also sent me a text with pictures daily...great comfort when you're out of town! I would definitely use Irina & her family again to watch my girl & highly recommend her for anyone with a smaller dog!
Thanks so much for doing such a great job taking care of Benji while I was away.
