ABOUT TALIA & BillY
CHECK OUT OUR REVIEWS BELOW!
WELCOME, I'M TALIA.
One of my greatest joys in life was owning and operating a pet care business in Oakland, California for four years. I adore animals and believe they are wise beings who teach us about unconditional love and how to live intuitively and in-the-moment. I'm deeply passionate about their wellbeing and have always taken pride in making sure they are well exercised, cared for, and nurtured.
While living in LA during the pandemic, I adopted Billy, a very mellow, sweet terrier who's currently 12 years young. His former person was in his 90s and hadn't been able to properly care for him for a few years but now he's my trusty sidekick and is 100% spoiled:).
Billy realized that he LOVES to socialize and I realized that I missed caring for other animals so, we decided to team up and offer pet care services to select folks who are traveling and need help caring for their pets while they're away.
BILLY AND I ARE NOW OFFERING DROP-IN VISITS + OVERNIGHT PET SITTING WHILE YOU TRAVEL.
I'm certified through dog*biz's widely respected Dog Walking Academy (R+ positive reinforcement techniques, dog safety, & ethical business practices) and I'm CPR and first aid certified through DogSafe and insured and bonded through Pet Sitters Associates.

Talia was absolutely wonderful with my dog, Annie. A skittish and sensitive rescue who has only been in our home for a month, Annie did not make things easy. But Talia was patient, loving and persistent until Annie was comfortable with her. Talia truly went above and beyond in her dedication to making it work. She was also very communicative with me (including updates and photos) and was simply delightful in every way. I feel so lucky to have met Talia and look forward to her next visit with Annie. - Deborah F.
I hired Talia to look after my sick kitty and stay in my house for a few days and she was phenomenal. She sent me pictures and sent me text updates. She went out of her way to figure out a better way to give my cat his medication. She left my house looking better than when it did when I went away. She is warm and caring and completely responsible. I totally trust her integrity and highly recommend her. - Sharyl M.
Talia was everything we could have wanted in a sitter! She took great care of our dog and house, and sent lots of photos and updates! She is a true dog lover and has a wonderful calming energy about her! We're so glad we found Talia and will definitely be hiring her again! - Olivia G.
Talia could not be kinder and more pet-empathetic. I returned home to two very relaxed and happy cats (who are not the most relaxed, ordinarily). Thanks so much, Talia! Grateful for your care. - Katie C.
As always, it's a pleasure to leave our dogs with Talia! They absolutely love her and I wouldn't give it a second thought if you are looking for someone you can trust and feel assured when you are away. Talia thanks for being so awesome with our pups and for the upkeep of our place! Much appreciated! - Luz G.
Talia is amazing! No words can express the peace we feel knowing she's taking care of our boys. They're so happy when we return. She also walks them during the week and sends us pics of their adventures together. If you want someone to love your pets as much as you do, Talia is definitely the way to go. - Melisa M.
Talia, thank you for being available at a moment's notice and making my emergency much less stressful! You always leave my babies perfectly cared for and tired, which is such a relief to come home to. On top of everything you also leave my home spotless. I am so grateful for you! - Erin B.
Another Amazing experience with Talia! - Jessica A.
Talia has been thoughtfully caring for my cat, Bubby, since March 2016, as I travel each month for about 10 days. I have been reluctant in the past to leave Bubbs with anyone as I've have had the experience that I come home and Bubbs is scared and has obviously not been cared for. With Talia, this changed everything! I can finally travel! When I leave Bubby with Talia I return home to an undisturbed/un-phased kitty! He acts as if I was there the whole time, and this to me is the sign that he got ALL THE LOVE while I was away:) Bubby is a finicky cat who requires that he has his eyes wiped everyday (not a fun job) and he needs to brushed a few times a day (thick coat) and loved on daily (healthy self-esteem;), and Talia does all of these things wonderfully! Talia also texts me photos daily to update me from home. Her communication is superb! She's been the best Bubby sitter I've had ever! I almost don't want to write this because I want to keep her all for myself ;) But honestly, if you're looking for a loving, honest, reliable, good communicator and good person to stay in your home that you can trust your loved pet and your home to and provide you with the best communication and service than you've found her! Talia is a golden jewel! - Marcella O.
So professional and reliable! My grumpy post operation dog loved her! Would definitely hire Talia again! - Jennifer P.
Talia watched over our dog and two cats while we were gone for four days and was absolutely wonderful. She sent photos and updates from every visit. - Elizabeth D.
Talia was so, so fantastic with my boy, Jed. I can't recommend her highly enough. She was super communicative throughout her stay, letting me know when she got to my place, how he was doing, how their day(s) had been, sending photos, etc. Jed can get pretty anxious when I leave, and will sometimes hunger strike for a day or two when I go, but, he ate the entire time I was gone, which to me was hugely indicative of his comfort level with her. He seemed quite tired and happy by the time I got back. I'll undoubtedly be reaching out to her again the next time I need someone to take care of him. - Anna S.
Bryn is always tickled when she gets to see Talia! She truly has a genuine love for dogs! - Luz G.
Talia is DREAM! I have two older dachsie mixes who are rescue pups (Lilly and Goldie). Working with them Talia demonstrated patience, and was gentle, loving, and one of the most intuitive doggy caregivers I have ever experienced. As an overprotective dog mom its hard for me to leave my girls even for a day. Talia provided ongoing updates, texted me pictures and kept to the structure and schedule set forth in advance so that I knew Lilly and Goldie were receiving the best care possible. Her calm and grounding energy is needed for my girls who sometimes get anxious when we leave them. Knowing that Talia was with them calmed both MY anxieties as well as THEIRS. We are grateful for her and look forward to working with her again! - Emily P.
Talia was fantastic! Our cat has only been with us for about a month and she was very understanding of that - letting him hide out but also coaxing him out of his shell. She took the time to come and get to know us, him and our space first before we headed out of town. I'd give her 10 stars if I could! - Dianna F.
Talia was amazing! I felt so at ease with having her stay with my pup and she kept me so in the loop that I never had to check in. My home was also kept so nicely when I got back, I was able to just relax and give my pet a ton of attention after time away. Thank you Talia!! - Jessica A.
I strive for words! This experience surpassed my greatest expectations by a billion miles! I am so impressed with Talia. Her professionalism is exceeded only by her genuinely warm and kind presence. Her 'way' with animals seems to be a hardy blend of knowledge/experience and kindness/intuition. Start to finish Talia not only tended lovingly to my animal kingdom (three cats & one dog) but also made tremendous effort in tending to me (!!!) with updates and photos. A picture is worth a thousand words! It's abundantly clear that Talia sincerely bonds with animals and has an undeniable ability to connect. What a truly comforting thing it has been to know my animals were getting plenty of attention and care while I was away. I will contact Talia every time, no doubt! - Amanda S.
I’m so grateful that I was referred to Talia when I knew I was leaving town on a short vacation and needed someone to take care of my precious kitties. Talia treated them with great care, administering medication to my boy cat and keeping everything completely immaculate. And the videos she sent of my fur babies were wonderfully reassuring. Thanks a ton, Talia! - Aimee L.
Talia is a gem! This is not my first review, but help beyond the call of duty needs to be recognized! Thank you Talia for going above and beyond with my baby girl!! - Luz G.
My geriatric cat (19 years old) was obviously given lots of love and attention. She requires pain medication and sometimes has litter box "misses", but this extra nursing care did not seem to phase Talia. Talia stayed in touch with each visit and communicated very clearly. I returned to one very relaxed kitty cat which has not always been the case when I have to be gone. Thank you Talia!! I will definitely be a repeat customer! - Amy C.
Talia was so wonderful! We met her on short notice and she was quick to respond and set up a meet and greet. Winnie instantly stuck to her side like glue! We asked Talia to just come in for a short while for a check-in and quick walk while we were at an event, and she went above and beyond by sending us a few pics each day of Winnie on her walk and getting cuddles. Talia gave us total peace of mind and I would happily hire her again :) - Arden T
Talia took such good care of Jovi (and one of my friend's puppy Brownie). Both babies loved being around her and I don't think they missed us at all :) which was very relieving to know. She kept us informed with updates via cute pictures and texts. Most importantly - Jovi and Brownie had a great time with Her - that's what matters the most. Also I want to thank Talia for being flexible in accommodating additional puppy last minute to my dog sitting request and for being super responsive whenever I sent her a text. Looking forward to see her again. - J Adlakha A.
Talia was great! We will continue to use her for walks! - Rachel R.
Talia was awesome! This was my first time hiring someone, outside of friends and family, and the process was seamless. I did a meet and greet with Talia a few days before and she was so nice. She walked my pup this past weekend, sent updates and pictures both days, and I was very happy with knowing my dog was well taken care of. I would definitely recommend Talia and hire her again! - Jennifer T.
I can't say enough about Talia! She took more than great care of my baby girl! When I returned home my pup was a super happy girl and very relaxed once we got over the welcome home part of our greeting which told me that she had plenty of play time with the sitter. Talia also took great care of my home while I was away. I received updates and photos daily, which made my time away so much easier. I was able to sit back and know that my dog was in great hands with Talia. I would HIGHLY recommend her for your dog sitting needs without a doubt! I am very thankful I had a chance to work with Talia. - Luz G.
Fantastic sitter! Really made my little guy, Rascal, feel so comfortable and obvious that she loves dogs. Very conscientious. - JoAnne K.
I came home to a very happy dog! Talia was great at sending pics and updates. I've already booked her again! - Erin B.
Talia is highly reliable and responsible pet sitter!!! She has taken excellent care of our two dogs while we are away. She truly loves animals and she gives them lots of love and affection. Our dogs are always excited to see Talia. We are very happy with her pet sitting service and strongly recommend her. - Tracy D.
