Lara is an awesome dog sitter and has watched my dog on and off over the last five years or so… she has always had pets of her her own including dogs and cats. Lara is very responsible and your pooches will be in good hands with her!!!

When Lara watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
There is a Bay Path right along the water in back of my townhouse where I would walk your dog. Dogs love this Bay Path and it's a beautiful walk for your dog.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Wherever is comfortable for your precious pooch in any room of my house ... I have a few dog beds, or if you would like to bring their own dog bed..?

Time I'll spend with your dog
My whole day will be dedicated to spending time with your precious pooch!

I provide dog walking services as well...where I would come to your house and feed and walk your dog depending on the distance from my house... I usually just provide dog walking services in Alameda but depends. I can do dog sitting in your place as well depending on the circumstances, distance etc..
