I get so anxious any time I have to leave my pup behind but we are so happy to have met Akiko. Not only did she put our minds at ease but we felt our little Bruce was in the best of hands while we were away. She sent us pictures and daily updates of how their day went. We couldn't be more happy with the service she provided and we highly recommend her for ...

By far the best sitter I’ve had! Akiko kept me updated throughout the entire time. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter & I’ll be so happy to use her in the future! Thank you so much.

I'll love your pup forever

People come to me for pet-sitting before they consider regular boarding. Those who meet me once know how much I love dogs and how happy I get around them. I grew up with two golden retriever babies--104lb Cody, my dearest best friend; and 60lb, Taylor, his little sis and my favorite sweet girl. I am known as the resident "dog-lover" by family, friends, and coworkers, and even that is an understatement.

What Akiko would like to know about your dog

I don't have breed preferences at all! I'm a lover of all. I would like to know if your pup does not like cats (I have two, who are fine with dogs and will either play together or just watch from afar; they don't scratch). I've watched pit-mixes and chihuahuas; my cats have experienced a range of different puppy personalities and energy levels.

When Akiko watches your pet

There's a creek and pathway right by my house where I take the pups that I watch. I know several dog parks if your pup enjoys socializing with other pups. If your pup likes outtings, I'll take them everywhere with me around Dallas--restaurants with outdoor seating and car rides for fun. If your pup wants to chill indoors, no worries, since I'm equally a home-body and will just cuddle with them. I am flexible and more like to understand what you typically do with your pup, so I can incorporate similar activities
