Alanna was so great with our two little fur-babies Boxer and Violet. She sent us pictures and was kind enough to send updates when she came and left the house. We were so relaxed while away for Thanksgiving! We will definitely be using Alanna in the future :)

Dogs, cats, small mammals & exotics

I just moved to La Jolla from the East coast for a PhD program at UCSD. I have a passion for animals of all types and would love to take care of yours while working to pay off my student loans. I grew up with dogs all my life—from Rottweilers, German shepherds, and pit bulls to small terriers and mixed breeds—and recently fostered a terrier mix named Violet from Lost Dog and Cat ...

When Alanna watches your pet

I am unable to host dogs in my grad apartment. However, I can visit or walk dogs of any sizes; I have experience with many different breeds and am not skittish around large or "aggressive" breeds. In fact, I have a soft spot for rotties and pit bulls! As long as your dog is well-tempered, I'm in!

If I am visiting your home, I would be happy to play with your dog inside or outside to help them burn off some energy. They will also receive lots of love!

I am happy to feed, give treats to, bathe (for a small fee), and/or groom your dog. I can administer medications orally or topically. If your dog needs injectable medication, I do request that we go over the procedure together before the start of my services but am fine doing it.
