The first time I witnessed a loose dog attack a person was in New York City’s Central Park, when from far away I watched as two off-leash dogs, no owner in sight, stalked and then attacked a person and their little dog. Fortunately people rushed in to help, likely saving the life of the little dog and possibly the person too. When I moved to Los Angeles many years ago, I lived in a not-so-great part of town.

Finding a good pet sitter

Posted by Jennifer on November 10th, 2014

pet-sitting-logosVacationing or traveling with pets can be fun, but sometimes you need to find a good pet sitter for your pet. Work trips, out-of-country travel, or even an extra-long work day can mean your normal pet care routine can’t happen on schedule. You might be lucky enough to have a reliable friend or neighbor who can care for your pets, but what if you don’t? Boarding kennels are an option, but many pet owners fear their pets will not be happy in a kennel setting. Not to worry, in almost every city and town there are plenty of pet sitters that can take good care of your pets until you return. Read More
