Starla took great care of my dog Milo! This was our first pet sitting experience and I was very happy with it! She sent me pics and updates while I was away, and was comfortable with taking care of all my dogs needs. I came home to a calm and happy dog. I will definitely book with Starla again!

Dog-Loving Caretaker Rittenhouse

My name is Starla, and I am currently enrolled in graduate school in Philadelphia. Having grown up with dogs my entire life, I love their company and enjoy taking care of them. My family dog a small 9-year-old Cockapoo named Sandy who loves to lay around and cuddle. My brothers dog, whom I am often caring for, is an energetic 5-year-old Golden Retriever named Roxy. Between the two of them, I get the best of ...

What Starla would like to know about your dog

I love dogs of all shapes and sizes! If i am caring for them in my own home, I would prefer to have only small to medium sized dogs just to be considerate to my roommate (who is also a huge dog lover). Outside of my home, however, I am open to anything!

Can provide daily exercise

I am a very energetic person. I love going for runs and walking along the Schuylkill river trail. If this is something your dog would enjoy, I would love to have some company! I promise your dog will not be antsy and high-strung at the end of the day. I will provide plenty of exercise.
