About True

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I'm an artist and writer, working from home on my own schedule, which leaves plenty of time for outdoor activities with furry faces, exploring the sights (& smells) of the 'hood. Looking after your pet is like making and hanging out with a new friend. It makes me happy to give love to critters who are all about love. ...And to be able to ease your world a bit as you tend to that all-important life stuff.
* Please note that while I am available for sitting (in your home), I do not offer boarding services (in my home) at this time. Apologies... & thanks!
One last thing - as each dog is unique, my rates are best guess estimates. A meet and greet will help me to finalize a rate after meeting your pooch(es) and talking with you. Thanks!

True is absolutely wonderful! I have a Shiba Inu who (while already being a weird dog) has had some separation anxiety since we moved to LA from Texas. She is easily stressed lately and I was wanting a dog sitter who could come to our home and stay with her and who was kind and calm and would really pay attention to her during her stay and not just make sure that she was fed and walked.

True was the absolute best! She let us know when she arrived for the stay and sent us updates a couple times a day with great photos. She was kind, trustworthy and true to her word. I was able to go on vacation and not worry or feel guilty for leaving her.

When I came home, everything was exactly as it should be and our dog was her relaxed, happy, normal self!! I will definitely be hiring True again, and I would highly recommend her. She sincerely cares about your dog and it shows from the meet and greet through the end of her stay. :)

We cannot say enough about True. She is kind, sweet, responsive, and amazing with our dog. She sent us not only update photos of Zoe, but they happened to be really great photos of her! She took out time ahead to meet with us and Zoe, noted all the important details, and was wonderful throughout the entire process.

While we were gone, she took Zoe on many walks, gave her lots of attention, and most importantly, made her feel loved while we were away.

True will definitely be our "go-to" gal in the future! Thank you, True!

As always, True was fantastic with the pups!
True was SO accommodating with key drop off and times for this trip! Her attention to Niko was special and she sent photo updates everyday! I felt so comfortable knowing that someone I could trust was with my pup :D
True is a very likeable professional artist. She is very comfortable with animals, and send lots of photos with interesting captions. We always felt secure with our guy in her care.
Everything went very smoothly, and Tru even texted me photos of the dogs every day, which I was infinitely grateful for. We'll definitely hire here again, probably next month!
True is our go-to when we need help taking care of our dog: she does a great job communicating and sending updates while looking after her, Ellie (our dog) adores her, and she just takes the BEST pictures of her! She sent us one where Ellie actually looks happy! (It should be noted that our dog is incredibly suspicious of smartphones being pointed at her and, while pictures exist of her looking at the camera, she invariably looks unhappy about it.) True has helped out with Ellie a lot, we really appreciate her being available, sometimes even last-minute, and would recommend her to anyone looking for a walker or sitter. (:

true was wonderful. she has a gentle calm spirit and sent tones of photos and updates which made me so happy to see while i left my babies at home. she was wonderful in every which way. i definitely will use her help again!
True is the best!
I was a little anxious leaving my 3 dogs (seniors) with someone they only met once but True made the experience easy and comfortable from the beginning to the end! She's calm and affectionate.
She sent us a lot of pictures and updates and in our meet and greet she was very attentive and asking all the right questions.
Exactly what we needed (and on a short notice!).

True was amazing with Skip. I came back to a very happy doggie after she stayed with him at my house for 8 days. She sent daily updates with pictures, and Skip had a great time. I would definitely love to have True to dogsit Skip again, she was great with him!

True is great and my dog Fenway agrees. My hubby and I both work and have unpredictable travel schedules, and True has always been incredibly reliable. Another dog walker referred her, and we so happy we found her.
We love True so much she is amazing with Oliver and francie! She treats them with so much love and she has the best calm energy which is perfect for our wild animals!!!!!
She was great! She came for an intial interview before we made anything concrete to make sure she was a good fit with our dog and already got along with our dog well. Our dog can be a handfull with other dogs in our house so it worked out well that she didn't have a dog of her own. She updated us every day with pictures and how our dog was doing which gave us peace of mind. Very respectful of our house and was there to comfort our dog throughout the day and even when there were fireworks outside our house for the 4th of July.

True was an awesome host! Levitt definitely enjoyed his stay with her. We needed to make a last minute booking and True was very accomodating. She updated us with photos and texts and made us feel comfortable leaving our Levitt for a couple of days. I recommend her as a host!

True saved us when we were in a bind! She met with us the night before we left for a five-day trip and agreed to keep our two dogs. She gave them lots of love, sent us photo updates and left our home in perfect condition. We will definitely use True again
in the future!

This was our first time using DogVacay, and I'm so glad we found True! She clearly loved our dog as if she were her own: she took her on lots of walks (and by/on the beach, which our dog loves), cuddled with her, and sent us plenty of updates (and pictures!) to let us know how she was doing. We will absolutely ask True to look after her again in the future. (:
