Hello, my name is Anissa. I am a 24 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.
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.
