  • This is a great option for those who work long hours & are unable to walk their pup and give a potty break. Dogs need daily walks to promote good physical and mental health, ease boredom, and prevent destruction in your home. We do private dog walks only, to ensure the safety for your loved one(s). We will pick up your dog from your home or office, walk in your neighborhood and provide them with the amount of time reserved and refresh water. Please see duration and rate options on our service menu.

  • Simple Life Hacks for Dog Owners

    1. Use Baking Soda to Clean up Pet Urine If your dog pees on the carpet use baking soda (which is also great at removing odors) to clean it up. Pour some baking soda over the spot, let it sit for 20 minutes and then vacuum it up. 

    2. Use a Window squeegee to Clean Up Fur From Carpet 

    Do you get a ton of dog hair lodged deep into your carpet? Use a window squeegee to pick up fur in your carpet & on your furniture. Scrape it along the carpet & just watch as that hair comes up. 

    3. Cover Up Scratch Marks on Furniture with a Walnut 

    Do you have a few scratch marks on your wooden furniture? You can cover them up by rubbing a walnut over them. The natural oils in walnuts seep into wood, making them a simple way to help cover up small scratches in your furniture.

     

  • 5 Dog Sleeping Positions and What They Mean

     

     

    As much as dogs like to run, play and sniff out the world around them, they also like to snooze. Healthy adult dogs spend an average of 12 to 14 hours per day sleeping, and puppies, senior dogs or those with health problems may require even more rest.

    Pet parents witness all sorts of dog sleeping positions, especially if they share a bed or couch with their pups. You have the back loungers, the spread-out space hogs, and the curled-up cuties. But what do these dog sleeping positions mean? Why do dogs sleep the way they do?

    This helpful guide breaks down five common dog sleeping positions and explains some of the science behind why dogs sleep in certain ways.

  • 4 top nutrients every animal needs

     
     
     
    top four nutrients

    No matter what type of food you feed your dog or cat, these few specific supplements will give him important nutrients and improve his diet.

    Many people, including veterinarians, believe that processed commercial pet foods have all the nutrients dogs and cats need for good health. As they begin to realize that excessive processing destroys nutrients, they may switch to better quality or fresher foods. But even when these diets contain a full complement of vitamins, minerals and other required nutrients, there’s still room for improvement. In fact, no matter what type of food you feed your companion, a few specific supplements will complement and improve his diet.

  • Will you be my Valentine? Meet Abe!

     

    What’s up guys? My name is Abe. Some call me Awesome Abe ?

    I was found and rescued on the 710 freeway, a few years ago. As you can imagine, that was quite a scary experience and it’s left me a little unsure of things. It’s ok though, because I live with my forever foster family, who make me feel very safe and loved.

    I would really love to have my own Live Love Leader! If you’re a Live Love Leader that means that you choose to donate regularly to help with my needs. It would honestly mean the world to a dog like me ??

     

    If you are interested in donating to Abe’s care or adopting him. please contact Live Love rescue:

  • Are you looking for a Valentine? Meet Fiona!

    Hello everyone! My name is Fiona. As you can tell from my ears, there’s a good chance that I might be a long lost relative of Gizmo. They are very helpful for detecting the rustling of treat packets?

    I was rescued from a local funeral home in my hometown of Long Beach a couple of years ago, thanks to my friends at @fixlbpets. I am currently living my best life by the beach, enjoying the fresh ocean breeze and feeling the sand between my paw pads ?

    I truly do live life to the fullest, but sadly I do have an awfully long list of old lady health issues. If you would like to help contribute to my medical costs, that would be a truly wonderful Valentine gift! ?

“Thank You Emery and Amazing Staff at Auntie Em’s Pet Sitting for taking such good care of my special needs doggies!  One of my dogs is very old and the other is young and energetic and Auntie Em’s is great with both of them! They keep a daily log, send pictures every visit, and take extra care and attention. If something is off with one of them she always notices.  I really don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have such a competent pet sitter to check in on my doggies while I am at work.  Thank you for easing my mind!”     Kristina V.

“Emery is the best! Since the first time we called her, she came right over and introduced herself to our little frenchie Lulu. It was easy to see her rapor with animals is amazing! She’s a kind soul. She’s reliable and punctual and her rates are great. She’s texted us adorable pics of Lulu during the day and leaves funny notes to let us know what she did. We’ve called her several times in a pinch and she’s come by last minute for a feeding/walking. She’s terrific. We’re so happy we found her.”     Sandy S.
“Matt and Emery are simply fantastic. They are thoughtful and knowledgeable, caring and loving… all of which give us great peace of mind that our kitty is well taken care of while we aren’t around.

Every time they come by to see him they share a picture on Facebook, which we found to be absolutely wonderful and something we would look forward to, as these photos were not only reassuring that our kitty was doing well, but also beautiful portraits… some of the most adorable pics we have of him.

We are delighted we have found Auntie Em’s.”     Verena S.
