Makena is an amazing sitter. She made me feel that my dog was in great care and was loved. She is super responsive, and provided me with daily updates and photos. Plus my home was flawless when I returned. I definitely recommend Makena, she is fantastic!

Makena was so wonderful with Leslie!! She was responsive throughout our trip, left our place really nice, and Leslie seemed super comfortable and happy with her. We definitely hope to have her watch Leslie again!

Fantastic! My dog loved meeting Makena, and Makena did a wonderful job. She was super responsive, on time, friendly, and great with my dog. Couldn't ask for anything more. Highly recommend her. And will definitely hope to work with her again!

Loving & caring GW PreNursing

The past 2 summers I've been working at an overnight dog and cat kennel and have been able to expand my knowledge and skills with animals. I have worked with all types and breeds of dogs. I also had a golden retriever growing up and have dog sat for many years. Now being in college at GWU, I have free time to spend with your pup and give them the love and attention they need ...

What Makena would like to know about your dog

I would like to know the age, breed, and any preferences you or your dog has. I want to be able to provide the best care for your dog so knowing things about them will help me do that!

When Makena watches your pet

I love going on walks and strolling around DC. There are plenty of parks to go to which means a lot of fetch and running around. If a dog is older or more sedentary, we can take a short walk and then hang around instead!
