Going out of town and leaving our dog behind is never easy, and finding a trust worthy dog sitter who will attend to him and our house is typically a very stressful endeavor. We were very fortunate to stumble upon Larisa's Rover profile. She took amazing care of our house and dog and send us frequent updates and adorable pictures. When we returned the house looked spotless and our dog even seemed to be looking ...

Larisa has been a life saver! She has cared for our two crazy pups multiple times, including for ten days while we were on vacation..and the dogs love her! Our dogs can be a lot to deal with -- we have a 75-lb german shepherd with super high energy and a 65-lb mixed breed who can be pretty stubborn -- and we are so happy to finally have someone we can count on to watch them ...

Larisa has taken care of my little rat terrier several times - both for midday walks and for overnight stays. She is reliable, friendly, and great with animals. My dog gets so excited every time he sees her, and I've always felt confident when he's in her care.

  • Verified Background Check

Clinical Psychologist and Dog Lover

I have provided dog-walking and dog-sitting services for friends and colleagues since 2012. This included 3 years of weekly walking and frequent sitting appointments (2-7 days) for two dogs, including an elderly blind and deaf dog who required daily medication. Most recently, I've taken care of a friend's two young (less than 3 years old), high strung dogs who are often wary of new people. I was able to forge a strong bond with them ...

What Larisa would like to know about your dog

I like to know if they are especially cautious of new people, if they are nervous or aggressive around new dogs or people, and if a pre-walk or pre-sit appointment would be helpful in introducing them to me.

When Larisa watches your pet

I love taking dogs on long, meandering walks (often 30 minutes to an hour) and hiking, if you feel comfortable with that. I've been able to use a trail app to find dog-friendly trails and have had a blast exploring nature with dogs.
