Sharifa has taken care of my 85-pound husky many times, and always does a great job. She is quick to respond to my requests for her services (whether or not she is able to help at a particular time), and is incredibly reliable.

Can't wait to be friends with your dog!

I am a late-twenties female with a deep love for animals. Since I am still transient I cannot own a dog myself but would love to help you take car of yours. I'm active and enjoy frequent walks with small dogs and short runs of a few miles with more athletic dog breeds.

I am an experienced dog sitter and I am available weekday evenings and on weekends. I have experience with both small and ...

What Sharifa would like to know about your dog

Before sitting for a dog I'd like to know how their temperament is and how they generally interact with people and other dogs. I do not have problems with any breeds but have a great affinity for smooshed nose dogs.

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live in a residential portion of Del Ray. The streets are safe to walk and I live 1/3 of a mile from a dog park where well socialized dogs can go for playtime.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
You dog will sleep on the floor in my room or in the living room on a provided dog bed.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I plan to spend several hours in the evening with your dog along with some time in the morning. Depending on the day I may also have time for an afternoon walk.

On the weekend I plan to walk your dog three times a day and spend several hours with them.

Extra house-sitting services
If I am staying in your home I can do basic house sitting tasks like bringing in mail and watering plants.
