About Nancy

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

"Offering Vacay packages to spoil and pamper your dog!"

I have been around animals all my life.
Horses, Cows, cats, dogs, pigs, sheep, turtles, birds, etc..

I've had several rescue dogs I've loved and cared for and would love nothing more than to care for your dog(s), as I care for my own. Cuddling, walking, hiking, playing, massaging, bathing, dancing and quiet time with them. Old or young, I care for your dog(s)in your own unique way that they will barely know you are away!

My dogs name is Bella. She is an 10 yr old Pharaoh Hound- Heeler mix.

Neighborhood walk options include La Brea Park and 3rd Street Park. We are only 25 minutes from Will Rogers State park and 12-20 min from Nicoles Canyon or Griffith Park and, I'm happy to take drives with your dog(s) anywhere during their stay with me.

Each Vacay Day visit includes 3 long walks (can be a hike(s) or walk in the neighborhood) You let me know what is best for your dog. Include an additional 2-3 Short walks, I'll work with YOU to find their best options.

Vacay Day visit also includes daily brushing, massage and, play time.

I have a clean apartment that is dog friendly and my own pet beds they may sleep on as well.
My apartment building is a SMOKE FREE environment.

I have a outside cement area that is very clean clean and guarded so pets
can have additional play time!

Bathing, if you would like, I use all hyper-allergenic shampoo's and conditioners that are paraben and sulfate free.

Daily brushing! Daily massages!

I have plenty of toys, but of course all pets have there favorites too!!

I am happy to travel to you! I have driven pets cross country from East Hampton to Los Angeles! Los Angeles to Atlanta, GA., Los Angeles to Santa Barbara. Different rates apply.


I may charge more than others, but my services and references stand out amongst them.

Drop off day is a full day rate.
Pick up day before 9am will not be charged.
9am-12noon is $15 additional.
After 12 noon is full day rate.
I do charge a 50% cancellation fee after booking is made.

I am happy to take your pet to any appointments you may need for them as well. (same pickup/dropoff rates apply)

From young dogs to OLDER DOGS that need special care... I am very good with all of this (geriatric needs, medications(oral or injections) and gentle handling) Certified in animal CPR.

My apartment is a clean home! Cozy and fun!

A Good driver to pick up and take on hikes, walks and of course can stay with me and my Dog Bella in my home or I can stay in your home.

Meet and greet is important so YOU are comfortable with all that I have stated.

Thank you and I look forward in hearing from you!

I call Nancy La Scalia the dog whisperer. My husband and I travel for a living. We work in approximately 110 cities a year. Our dogs 2 nine year old, female, French Bulldogs and are especially trained and are service dogs. They travel with us most of the time. When they cannot, Nancy takes care of them. She has been doing this for the last 6 years. She is kind and assertive with her training. Dogs know that she is definitely the alpha. Her loving nature, attention to detail and meticulous message makes her the perfect dog sitter especially for any dog with specific medication needs like my dogs. I would highly recommend Nancy to anyone who needs this type of service. I believe she is an asset to your company.

Snoop loved Nancy, Bela and her frequent pack hikes. Your pup is in safe hands with Nancy!
Nancy is the absolute best! She is so amazing with Maya and knows exactly how to deal with her. We wouldn’t think of having anyone else watch our girl.
Also, she’s an amazing photographer! Now we have some of the most beautiful photos of Maya! Thanks Nancy!!
Nancy did a great job with our pups while we were on our winter break. She sent so many pictures of them having a blast on walks, hikes, and snoozing on the couch! One of our dogs has epilepsy and she was very knowledgeable and trustworthy with his medicine routine.

I would recommend Nancy, especially if your dogs get along with other dogs, as she usually has a puppy party!
