vicki was really great with marley and isa. marley is quite special needs and isa does have trust issues, but it was no problem for vicki as she handled both very well! this was the first time that i used vicki, and very likely won't be the last time. communication was really great through out the night as well! she kept us posted and replied very quickly whenever i wanted to check up on them ...

We hired Vicki to stay at our house to watch our 110 lb. Lab while we were out of town. She kept us up to date with multiple pictures a day, which we enjoyed. We returned to a clean house, which was very thoughtful! We will be hiring her in the future. Mahalo!

Auntie Vicki's Akamai Pet Services

I've been house /pet sitting for a few years in Hawaii with several ongoing clients -all referrals. Recently a few of my military clients have left the islands which is why I'm very intetested in meeting new fur babies.
Experience with training (Great Danes, Weimeraners ). Very comfortable with all breeds and can handle several at a time-one client has 3 rambunctious dogs. Caring for pets and childcare is my career, my passion, so my time ...

What Vicki would like to know about your dog

There's basic information I need while caring for your pet (s). Are they socialized? Any behavior issues, i.e. food aggressive, etc. Depending on the size, are they shy/timid of smaller/larger dogs or any particular breeds?
Allergies? My main goal is to ensure the dog's health and safety, as well as minimize /eliminate anxiety. Keeping them active, well cared for and loved is essential. I've cared for Bishons, Chihuahuas, Siberian Huskies, Labs, American Bulldogs, pit mixes, Great Danes etc., and 8 week old puppies up to 14 year old grandpapas.
I give great massages to my doggies with Arthritis, Dysplasia.

When Vicki watches your pet

Typically walk your pet (s) on your regular routes. If your dog is doggy friendly, I "pair up" with other doggies (with your approval ) for play dates at the park, beach, walks, et . I often go during the morning /early afternoon (as well as evening), and there are generally no dogs for play/socialization during the earlier hours, so bringing a new BFF ensures everyone will have fun & exercise. Also go for car rides, drop in @ Petco, hikes, beach or just walk through town.
I keep toys, water, doggy bowls and treats in my car. If your fur baby plays fetch (or tries ), I've got a chuckit on standby.
