Overall, Athena was great to work with and we'll use her again in a heartbeat. She was easy to work with to set up the stay and was very diligent in her preparation. Most important, she clearly enjoyed being with our Border Collies and she kept us up to date with very regular photos of their outings which makes being away from our dogs while traveling that much more relaxing.

Caring and Responsible Dog Sitting

Welcome! I'm Athena. I live in the Northgate area of Walnut Creek. I've had dogs my whole life, as well as several years of professional experience working with dogs in animal rescue. I worked for three years as an canine care specialist and adoptions specialist at Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation. Then as a canine and adoptions associate at the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society. In addition, I volunteer-fostered dozens of puppies and dogs ...

What Athena would like to know about your dog

I love all breeds! Because my own dog is only 12lbs, it is important that any guest dog staying with us be friendly and gentle with small dogs. My small dog has lived with gentle big dogs before, so although I indicate taking only small-medium dogs, large or extra large breeds are welcome as long as they are gentle. There are also cats in the home, so must be cat-friendly. With the exception of puppies still being potty/crate trained, I expect adult dogs to be potty trained to go outdoors.

When Athena watches your pet

Guest dogs can expect one walk per day, as well as potty breaks every 2-4 hours, and plenty of cuddle time! I live right next to Briones, so most walks happen there. Dogs are kept indoors, except to walk and go potty.
