About Lar

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 is an amazing pet sitter!!! She has been watching my dog for years and there is no one I trust more with my fur baby than Anissa. She is very responsible and keeps me updated daily with how he is doing while in her care. Anissa has years of experience not only in caring for animals in her home but also in veterinary care. She took care of my baby after surgery and the care she provided was excellent!! She is so caring and loves all animals! I highly recommend Anissa for any type of pet care service!!

Anissa has boarded my dog multiple times in the last few months and she is amazing! There is no one else I would trust with my pup more. Anissa is very knowledgable about all breeds and is extremely reliable. My dog is typically a little bit fearful of new people but was completely comfortable with Anissa in seconds. She is one of the most dog friendly people I know. I highly recommend Anissa for all pet care needs!!!

Yes she was very nice and Angel seemed very Happy. I loved getting the pictures of Angel on most days whilst we were away so I could see she was happy and ok which was important to me and made our holiday a lot easier cos hate leaving Angel at all.

I would def use her again
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! .
Laryssa was amazing! My dog fell in love with her from the moment he meet her. Laryssa is very promo to respond, reliable and knowledgeable when I comes to pet care. I highly recommend Laryssa!!!
