Meeting Mona was a gift from heaven! She took care of my bully so great I didn't have to worry while on my business trip. She was in contact at all times and got lots of pictures.
My baby was very happy with her and I was too.
I will definitely reach out for my next trip! Thanks Mona for everything!!!

Needed a sitter for the weekend and Mona was gracious enough to accept our doggos. Not only did she stay with my biiiiig boy, (he's over 100 lbs and finding sitting for him is never easy) but she also took care of my 10 month old puppy that happened to be on her "girly friend". She attended both of my dogs great, made sure to communicate with us, and sent us daily pics. Mona is ...

Good Dog Karma - 10+ yrs experience

I’m Mona and I am passionate about your pup! I studied ethology (the science of animal behavior), and I have been a certified dog trainer for over 10 years, so I am more than just an animal lover - I’m an animal care professional that you can trust to have the knowledge and experience to take the best care of your pet. I can also care for other kinds of animals: cats, birds, reptiles ...

What Mona would like to know about your dog

Before a stay, I’d be happy to set up a meet-and-greet at your convenience. Please let me know whether your dog(s) is/are fully potty-trained, whether they are spayed or neutered, and other relevant information like vet contact info, medications, favorite activities, anything off-limits, where they like to be petted, their favorite toys and treats, and any other medical or behavioral issues I should know about.

I don't have any breed or size preferences and love all dogs equally!

When Mona watches your pet

I work from home so your dog(s) will get full-time care, supervision, and affection. They will always be in a safe, puppy-proofed environment so they can’t escape or hurt themselves, with full access to water, toys, the TV playing DogTV (a special channel designed just for pups!), and lots of other comforts.

We will go on several walks per day including to local dog parks, with your permission. I also like to go to restaurants with dog-friendly sidewalk cafes so we can people-watch and enjoy our beautiful climate.

I know how hot pavement and sidewalks can get, so even on a walk I try to have the dog(s) walk on grass as much as possible, even if it's just the strip of grass next to the sidewalk, and if we’re at a cafe they’ll have a dog bed to lie on and a bowl of cool water.
