There are not enough stars to rate Lucy. She say yes in a pinch and took incredible care of Riggins. She was responsive, thoughtful, caring and patient - what more could you ask for? I can not recommend her highly enough.

Thank you so much, Austin! We love Riggins!

Lucy was great! Happy dog=happy owners. Lucy sent us pics showing us that our pup had settled in nicely for his overnight stay. We also had an initial meet and greet which helped familiarize our dog with the new surroundings. Our communications was great and very prompt via text. Thanks again Lucy. Joey had a nice getaway at your place! ?

Dog haven in Excelsior District

I'm a 30 y/o working part-time as a dog sitter, part-time as a clinician. Please note from my profile, if you are looking for boarding, we have an 8 year old spaniel, a 9 year old boston terrier, and a 14 year old indoor-outdoor cat. The cat loves other dogs and both dogs are friendly. If sitting in your home, I would not bring any pets. I trained as a walker and sitter with ...

What Lucy would like to know about your dog

There's just a few basics: how many walks per day, feeding schedule, food aggression/aggression with other dogs/other quirks. Anything you'd want me to know! I'm happy to work with any breeds.
I am happy to work with folks in Oakland but do charge an additional fee for bridge tolls.
I typically do not charge for medication at this time, unless your dog requires complex medical care.

When Lucy watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I am very close to McLaren Park as well as parks in Bernal Heights and Glen Park. We also have a fenced dog run nearby. Whatever is preferable for your pup.

Time I'll spend with your dog:
Depending on what you want and what the dogs needs! Typically, I'll do a 30 minute morning walk, longer afternoon walk to the park, and 30 minute evening walk.
I plan on spending as much time with your dog as possible. I'm a student, so I will be home with the dog all day except for an hour or two per day for class.

Extra house-sitting services:
Happy to help with any of the above. Just let me know in advance so I can accommodate any requests.
