(This is a review for house sitting & cat feeding) I have 2 cats that can be a bit tricky to feed: one likes to eat everything in sight while the other is rather picky and takes his time with his food. Ayana kept an eye on them for the weekend, made sure both got to eat twice a day, and kept them company. Highly recommend!

Thank you Laura!!!! Gizmo and Buzz were a blast. :)

Ayana was fantastic! She has a great setup at her place so our pup had her own area and could feel right at home.

She sent pictures and videos regularly and kept us up to date on how things were going throughout the stay. We’re so grateful she was able to watch Pru and will definitely be reaching out the next time we need a sitter.

BOOK HER! Zoey and I had a flawless experience with Ayana, from the meet and greet to the final pick up. She is very easy to communicate with and is genuinely a doggo person. I received plenty of pictures and updates and was not worried about Zoey at all. Would book again without hesitation!

Thank you Michelle!!!! Zoey was a blast and literally a ball of energy :-)

Hello! My name is Ayana and I live in the quiet residential area of Dorchester (ashmont/lower mills) . I worked with Boston Dog walks for the past 7 years and have a huge love of dogs and cats. I’ve walked many different breeds and have experience with various temperaments and medical conditions. Walking dogs ...

What Ayana would like to know about your dog

I have no preferences. However, I do have a special love for pits!! I would like to know the general questions:

- Breed and age of pet?
- Do they have any medical needs? (allergies, medication)
- How are they with other dogs(big/small) and/or cats?
- Are there any training's that you want me to reinforce?
- Do they have a favorite treat/food/toy?
- Any special commands that they know?
- Are they shy or friendly towards new people?
- What’s your relationship like with your pet and why did you choose them or they choose you?

When Ayana watches your pet

Rain, shine, or snow (because Boston weather is crazy sometimes :) ) your pet and I will go on walks around the neighborhood or towards Dorchester Park which is an 11 min walk from my house. If it’s a quick walk I also have an back yard unfenced for them to explore while leashed. I live in a quiet residential area with lots of hills which is a fun workout every day. (-_-) Whether your dog want to play fetch until they’re tired, socialize, sniff around, or just sit next my feet and enjoy a nice head pat I will make sure I accommodate their needs and wants during the walk/stay.

On a walk or stay, I like to reinforce any training that’s implemented at home. I have a clicker (was used for my cat/other dogs) and my own treats (if okay with owner) I use for training. I also like to implement positive rewards with lots of verbal praises and belly rubs. Any activities, low to high energy, while your pet is in my care, will always be catered to their needs.

I have plenty of cat toys and treat (if permitted by owner) for your pet. Periodic checks on them will be done in my care and pet/cuddle attention (if pet is okay with it)


*I ask that crates or bedding is provided.

* For older dogs- I do have a lot of stairs outside my house but we can take it slow going up and down.

For cat/dog, they would sleep in my living room and have a closed off space to roam between the front sun room, my bedroom, and living room. My two cats would be in a separate area or on the back deck. (Princess loves to sleep outside)

They will have a closed off area to roam with secured window screens. I live on the second floor which has three windows facing the street, so they can look out the windows and watch birds fly by or have a nice nap. (My cats always do). My two cats would be in a closed off area but are also friendly.
