I have known Penina for over 9 years and have found her be reliable, very good with animals, and a trustworthy person in every sense. She is kind, compassionate, and sweet with the animals, taking very good care of them. She takes the job seriously and always does a quality job. I would definitely trust her in my home and with my pets.
Penina is my favorite pet sitter. We love having her care for our dogs. She is professional, playful and loving. Our dogs are happy to see her when she arrives and seem at ease and happy when we return. Starting from the thorough initial interview to assure our needs are met , and continuing with periodic updates, Penina's thoughtful care makes us all (pets and people) feel confident and well cared for. I recommend her wholeheartedly.
Penina is really great with dogs. She cares deeply for their well-being, and she will go out of her way to make sure your dog feels comfortable and at home. You'll be glad you selected her to care for your pet.
"Loving your animals playfully."
After I raised my 2 wonderful dogs Izzy and Wendy, I began pet sitting for neighbors' and friends' dogs and cats. "Loving your animals when you're away so you have peace of mind to work and play." Currently, I volunteer at the Santa Barbara Humane Society. I'm happy to pet sit for vacationers at local hotels like The Milo, Hotel Indigo and Holiday Inn Express. I ensure all animals receive adequate exercise, playtime and love!
What Penina would like to know about your dog
Location of food bowl, leash, food, times of feedings and walks (to match the doggie's routine as much as possible), age. How is the doggie with other people? Other doggies? Is s/he used to going off leash? Has s/he had obedience training? Does s/he bark a lot? What words does s/he know to respond to? (Leave it, come, etc). I love labradoodles, mixed breeds, smallish dogs.
