Emmalia is the best! She stopped by several times to check on old man Monte while I was away for the weekend! Emmalia took Monte on walks and texted me updates of Monte & sent pics! I will definitely have Emmalia pet sit the next time I need a pet sitter! Thanks Emmalia!

Emmalia is wonderful!!! I felt completely comfortable leaving my dogs and house in her hands. She is trustworthy, attentive, and so sweet with the dogs. I felt like a friend was staying at my house. I would definitely use Emmalia again and certainly recommend her!!!

If you are looking for someone kind and conscientious who you can absolutely trust with your beloved pet, then look no further.

Emmalia exudes warmth and clearly cares a great deal for animals. It's very reassuring to know that you're leaving your dog with someone so responsible and capable.

We felt completely comfortable leaving our puppy Nina with Emmalia in our home and will absolutely book her services again soon. She has our total endorsement!

Born & raised w/pups , lets play!

Hi there! My name is Emmalia. Growing up, my mother bred dobermans, so we always had puppies in the house! We also cared for golden retrievers, labs, dalmatians, and a poodle. Not just dogs either, a cow, horses, an Icelandic pony, ducks, chickens, birds, turtles, and any animal my mother found along the way. I've done multiple dog training courses while in high school and use that knowledge when interacting with pets. I'm happy to ...

What Emmalia would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences! Open to any type of pup. I like to know the basics, what breed, how old, how they interact with other dogs, their activity level, and any specials needs or medications. Other than that, we will be all set to have some fun!

When Emmalia watches your pet

We can go on hikes up to Jesuita or Rattlesnake trail in Santa Barbara, long walks around the neighborhood, a beach trip to Hendry's, throwing the ball at Orpet Park, Rooky Nook park, Douglas Perserve, or More Mesa. The opportunities are endless.
