Bear loves Malena. She understands his puppy energy and is great with training. I love Malena because she has amazing energy and a beautiful presence. She's a keeper.

Malena took care of our dog Hombre for the weekend and it couldn't have gone better. She took a genuine interest in him and we felt assured that he would be well cared for. She is timely in her responses and provided us with photo updates, as well. She even made sure he was walked early in the morning before I picked him up at 7:30am.

Malena is fantastic! Our dogs loved her from the moment she walked in. She showed up on time and is a total pro! Will definitely use her again!!!

Caring college student & dog lover!

Hi my name is Malena! I am currently a student at UCLA, but I have an adorable little Shih Tzu back home! For 10 years, my family also owned a Bernese Mountain dog. Before getting those two furry friends, we had a Golden retriever so I have 10+ years of experience in taking care of dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. I absolutely love interacting with dogs and have chosen to be a dog ...

What Malena would like to know about your dog

Before sitting your dog, I would love to know what their personality is generally like. What is his or her favorite activity? Favorite treat? Favorite place to go on walks to? Simply anything regarding his or her likes and/or dislikes, if he/she have any special needs, and what his/her typical daily schedule is like. I am happy to follow any and all instructions, and want to make sure that your pup is happy, comfortable and satisfied!

When Malena watches your pet

Dogs are my best friends. I will sit on the couch and watch TV with them, grab a ball or stuffed animal and play with them, lay on the ground and give them belly rubs, and cuddle them in my bed! When we aren't cuddling and spending quality time together, I'll make sure to take your dog out exploring. I live only a few minutes away from the UCLA campus, which is big and a great place to walk around! I would be glad to take your pup out on excursions around UCLA for exercise and stimulation. Please let me know where you usually take your pup, I'd be happy to explore their stomping grounds with them.
