Our dogs were well taken care of. Both of our dogs have medical conditions and up there in terms of age. Despite this, under Pat's care our dogs were returned to us in the same condition we left them (happy and healthy).

Great experience, very friendly and easy communication. Luna had a great time and came home straight to bed. Would definitely bring her back to Pat if we’re ever in the area again. Thanks Pat!

Our boys loved their first stay with Pat! Our George is diabetic and Pat was able to take care of his needs and keep him on schedule with his medication. They were pooped when they got home and slept all day, which is a sign of a good time!

Seniors and Special Needs Welcome

I live in downtown Long Beach with my 3 small dogs, Abba, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel; Sophie, a mixed Shih-Tzu; and Dreamer, a senior Maltese. When I retired from doing facials I started my pet sitting business, you might call it my encore career. I felt there was a strong need to provide loving care in a loving environment. I care for all ...

What Pat would like to know about your dog

I would like to know the dogs temperament, I do not take aggressive dogs. I really have no breed preferences as long as the dog is well behaved. I also take in-tact dogs as long as they are well trained and non-aggressive.

When Pat watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I take the dogs for walks around the neighborhood and I can also take them to the dog park if you would like. I try to accommodate the individual dogs needs and of course your wishes are always respected.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog will have a choice of sleeping arrangements. My dogs sleep with me and yours are welcome to also, but if they want to sleep in a dog bed or if you want them in a crate that is also available.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am a full time sitter so this is not a hobby for me. I am with your pets 24/7 except for the occasional errand. It is my goal to establish a bond of trust with you and your family member so when they come to my home they are happy to be here.
