Hi, my name is Anna and I'm a full-time pet care provider and animal lover in Los Angeles. I'm a trained petsitter with over 17 years of experience and an adaptive style to meet your needs and schedule. My services also include baths, light grooming, playtime and walking! Please feel free to inquire about boarding your pet(s) with me in Sherman Oaks.
My apartment is on the ground floor in a nice neighborhood by the LA river with plenty of space for your pet to run around and roll in the grass! We even have a special closet for storing toys, food and anything else you'd like to bring. We're in walking distance to pet-friendly shops and restaurants if your pup is accustomed to a more active social life in the city.
If your furry friend is more comfortable on your turf it's no problem! I also do house calls and am happy to stay overnight and keep your pal company while you're away. Baths, brushing, and any other special care services can be added to boarding and sitting bookings a la carte.
- Activities your dog will enjoy:
I try to stick to your dog’s normal schedule (feeding, bathroom breaks, sleep, walks, etc.). I keep an eye out for favorite activities and treats — for example, I love playing fetch with a favorite toy while we’re hanging at home. Since I am a freelancer, I’ll be at home and available for your pup all day.
I live in a 2 bedroom apartment in Sherman Oaks, California. I have one roommate, who also loves dogs and is happy to play with the pups I bring home. My apartment is on the ground floor in a nice neighborhood by the LA River with plenty of space for pets to run around and roll in the grass. The yard is unfenced, though there is a shared fenced in patio area out back as well. We even have a special closet for storing toys, food and anything else you'd like to bring. We're in walking distance to pet-friendly shops and restaurants if your pup is accustomed to a more active social life in the city. The neighborhood is full of families and lots of folks have pets, so visits are always welcome!
- Questions before our stay:
Please let me know about any special care, treatments or medications your dog may be taking and their needs/preferences when it comes to daily routines, other animals and meeting new people.
From pits to chihuahuas, I can handle a little rowdiness, anxiety and excitement- no worries. If you have a "code red" animal, or one with a history of highly aggressive behavior, please let me know up front.
*This is simply to help ensure safety on walks, etc. A few questions I have are:
1. Are there other animals living in the house?
2. How friendly is your dog when it comes to other animals and strangers?
3. What kind of leash do you normally use?
4. Is your pet potty trained?
5. What are his/her favorite treats?
- I have experience caring for senior, special needs, and aggressive dogs.
- Can provide daily exercise for high-energy dogs.
- Licensed, bonded, insured.
- Accepts stays for longer than 1 week.
