Amazing sitter! Everything you would want to make you feel comfortable and at ease leaving your furry one. Ala took our pup to the dog park, sent beautiful pictures, let him play with so many of her dogs toys, and even let him sleep on the bed with her. Highly recommend her to anyone. We will definitely use her again the next time we visit Monterey :)

Ala was very conscientious in making sure my dog was happy and well taken care of. She also kept me regularly apprised of how well he was doing. He clearly had a great stay with Ala, her daughter and her two darling little dogs. I loved that she let my dog sleep on her bed which he is used to doing at home.

Loving home away from home!

I truly love being around animals and caring for them - it makes me happy and always puts a smile on my face. Dogs give unconditional love and I do the same back to them.
Besides personal passion and experience, I pet sit for my friends and my family. Even in college with a full load of classes and 2 part time jobs, I also ran pet sitting business with a friend, and handled many clients ...

What Ala would like to know about your dog

I don't have any preference, however since I have two small dogs I would want to make sure the dog is not aggressive or that he/she gets along with other animals. My dogs do not require a lot of walks so I would take the guest dog on its own walk unless it would work to take mine along. It will depend on the temperament of the dog - more info is always better.

When Ala watches your pet

With my own dogs, I like to play with my dogs, we rough house a bit and they like chasing their toys and fetching. I would do the same with the guest dogs. We like to walk on Carmel beach because my dogs are well behaved and can walk off leash without running off. But we go on hikes as well, or walks along paths. I would do the same with any guest dog as long as it is ok with the owners.
