About Mira

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Unless your dog is accustomed to cats we require a Meet & Greet before we can accept a new Dog.

I solemnly swear to love, protect, honor and care for your beloved furry family member as if s/he were my very own; so, help me Dog...

I am a Responsible, loving Dog & Cat Guardian conveniently located just 2 blocks West of Union Square in the Heart of San Francisco.

I have a loyal and fun-loving French Bulldog/Boston Terrier mix named Tikki who's 5 1/2 years old. I also have two dog-accepting senior cats, Scrappy (10) & Gnocchi (9), of the two-- my Gnocchi is the most loving, playful and curious towards our canine visitor.

In my home your Dog (I only take 1 at a time + my Tikki) will get the following in addition to any specific needs or limitations they might have:

A minimum of 3 walks a day. A romp at a local park (up to 3 hrs. weather permitting): Huntington Square Park, Allyne Park, Duboce Park or Mission Creek Park.

I offer plenty of In-door play & cuddles in my Union Square apartment where they will be in the company of Tikki and my two cats. They have plenty of floor space, access to my bed & comfy dog beds (also an open-door crate is available if they prefer or feel free to bring your own). Not to mention loving arms and comfy laps.

I have experience caring for senior dogs & dogs with disabilities or Special Needs. Specifically, heart murmurs & arthritic/mobility issues. Also Dogs with separation anxiety & sight impairments.

I also have more than five years of experience caring for "smoosh-face" Brachycephalic dogs (French Bulldogs, Boston Terriers & Pugs) which can come with a host of issues from breathing, spinal, heat sensitivity (I know the signs and how to prevent heat exhaustion), skin allergies & insatiable appetites.

I offer More Services including the following in your home (or hotel):

Check Up/Visits for Homebound Dogs (Puppies) & Cats:

I have over 40 years of cumulative experience in Cat care. I Specialize in the care of Frail or Elderly Cats & Dogs requiring daily medication for a life-long conditions or illnesses. I have first-hand experience with cats who are timid, traumatized & were born to feral mothers.

Check-in & visits:

In-your-home ONLY for: $35/30min. (2 pets max). Additional animals are $5-15 each.

Every Pet-sitting Visit includes: Feeding (including medication), water change, litter scooping & entertaining your feline with toys. Dogs get a 10-15 minute potty break outside if they don't have a pee pad or access to an outside area.

Lots of pictures will be provided along with an E-mail update after each visit.

For extended bookings of more than 3 days we require that you reserve in 3-day increments.

I can do a Check-in or sit (max. 6 hours) for a puppy (under 16 weeks or less than 2 years old) or a Senior Dog at your home. If you're visiting SF and can't take your dog on that sight-seeing tour or fancy restaurant ask about an hourly custom quote.

I also have experience in bottle-feeding and caring for newborn-hours old (orphaned) puppies.

If you like what you've read about me & my qualifications, I would love you to consider having me care for your loved ones. I just ask that you not send inquiries, reservations, or meet & greet requests at 3:00 a.m. (PST). I am happy to accept these after 8:00 a.m. and respond within 30 minutes at most during my business hours between 8am-9pm.

All the photographs in my gallery are dogs & cats I have cared for recently.

We had a big dinner one night on our visit to San Francisco, and thankfully found Mira just around the corner from our hotel. She was able to watch our Pomeranian, Mr Fox, for the evening so we could enjoy our meal and not worry about rushing back. She met me in the hotel lobby to pick him up and introduce him to one of her pups, then immediately dispatched to the park for a few hours. I got text updates and photos all evening, and it was lovely. I was able to enjoy without worry about Mr Fox, and he obviously had a wonderful time. Thank you so much, Mira!

Mira was extremely responsive and communicated well from beginning to end. Prior to the start date, she came to my house to meet me, my dog (Rosi) and parrot (Lucy) and make sure she understood their routines and feeding requirements.
While I was away, she sent updates and photos and took great care of the girls. She even put the trash cans out on trash day!
She is sweet, dependable and responsible and I will use her again.

Mira was such a great pet sitter for our girls (cats). She came through for us at the last minute and took great care of our girls. Our cats were in good hands and we trust her completely. We will use her again for future pet sitting jobs. Thank you Mira.

We used Mira's service before and knew that she would the one to take care of our girls (cats) again. A trustworthy pet sitter.
Mira took great care of our girls (cats). Our girls were in good hands.
When my flight was delayed, Mira was extremely accommodating and allowed me to book an extra night by sending me a quote immediately. The next morning, she even offered to bring Tobie back to our house! Mira is the best!
I could not have asked for a better sitter! Mira literally sent me updates during my trip at least 5x a day along with photos and descriptions. Not only did she text me photos and updates, she even uploaded a different set of photos each day on the dogvacay website! She walked Tobie to the park everyday and also made sure to brush his teeth, per my request. My Tobie enjoyed hanging out with Mira's dog Tikki and her 2 cats so much that when he got home, it seemed like he was having withdrawals! I wouldn't hesitate have Mira watch my Tobie again.

Mira was fantastic! I would not hesitate to recommend her to other dog owners.

Orson stayed with her at her place for 4 nights and he came back happy. She shared several pictures of Orson everyday so I knew he was okay. Also, Mira's dog, Tikki, is great--very well behaved and was great around Orson. Same goes for her cats.

Also, I should note that Mira went the extra mile. I got really sick while Orson was with Mira not only was she willing to take him another night, but she also was kind enough to drop him off (as opposed to me picking him up).

Thanks Mira & Tikki!

Mira is awesome! I hope Charlie can stay with her again in the near future. Lots of pictures and videos of dog having fun!
Overall, Aibo and I had a great experienced. Mira was a GREAT host, experienced, reliable, responsive, attentive, obviously a dedicated pet owner and genuine dog lover. She was flexible with drop off and pick up times, which was a BIG BONUS. I received photos of Aibo on every activites. I always feel that he was in a good hands when I left him with Mira. She did an exceptional job and I will definitely be using her services again in the future. Thank you so much for taking care of Aibo, Mira.
