About Laryssa

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, I am a 25 years old nursing student.

Animals have always been a large part of my life. Growing up with a Golden Retriever, I learned at a young age how to care for dogs and how special the bond is between a dog and their owners. I would love to welcome you and your pup to a loving and cozy home! With my flexible schedule, I can make sure your pup gets the best care possible and is having a great time. It is very important to me that each pet that I care for is treated as if they were my own!! To achieve this, I only board pet(s) from one family at a time, which provides your pet(s) with personalized care. New customers recieve 20% off first booking (Message me for further details!!).

Dog Walking & Pet Sitting Experience:
I have been taking care of animals for approximately 20 years, including my own as well as client’s pets. I have volunteered at many different animal organizations and rescues, where I gained experience working with animals of all sizes, temperaments and ages. At the age of 17, I had the opportunity to be an intern at my local veterinary office for 2 years. During this time, I got the opportunity to experience working closely with pets that suffered from a variety of medical conditions as well as administering medication.

Pet Safety Precautions:
Pet safety is extremely important to me and I do everything I can to provide a safe and secure environment for your pet. Pet gates are always up guarding the trashcan, the cat’s litter box, and the front door.
I love spending time outdoors!! Your pups will be taken on multiple walks a day, have access to a secure fenced outdoor area to play and run, and participate in all the activities that they enjoy daily at home. Upon request, I am able to take your pup to 2 different dog parks near the area.

Description of apartment:
Your pup will feel right at home in my pet friendly cozy one bedroom apartment in Sherman Oaks, located just south of Ventura Blvd. Being located in the heart of the neighborhood, your dog will have a variety of walking options throughout the day. In the center of the apartment complex, is a beautiful spacious enclosed outdoor area with plenty of grass and space for playing or running.

About my cat:
I have a 3-year-old tabby cat named Zeke at home. He is great with dogs and loves watching them play! Zeke is extremely friendly with other dogs as well as cats. He is a little bit lazy, so he typically sleeps and lounges around the entire day.

Laryssa is amazing with animals!!! There is no one I trust more with my dog than Laryssa. She has been watching my dog (from walking to sitting) for almost two years since Beasley was 8 weeks old. He adores her and instantly gets excited when I say her name. She has a lot of previous experience with all breeds and all ages. Laryssa is extremely compassionate and attentive. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!!!!

Anissa has a natural ease with animals. Through out her whole life, she has been taking care of dogs and is very passionate about animals. There is nobody that I would trust more with my dogs. She is compassionate, reliable, caring and thoughtful.

Laryssa was awesome! She took such great care of our young, energetic husky pup! She sent us pics everyday and promptly responded to our texts or emails. Our pup even came back smelling better! I'm not sure if she bathed him or the good scent of her home just rubbed off on him. I also had a miscommunication with my boyfriend about when he flew back in. This caused us to be a few hours later than our intended pick up time. She was very accommodating and had no problem with rescheduling. I highly recommend Laryssa! .
