I have been Anthem's resident pet sitter since 2015. I relocated to Anthem Country Club from the San Francisco Bay Area.  There, I started my first pet sitting business, with my golden retriever, Vivi, as she grew up from 8-weeks old.


Since 2009, I've cared for nearly 100 dogs (please see my photo gallery of some of Vivi's Best of Friends below). My referral list consists of happy clients in both California and Anthem.


Friendly dogs are welcome to stay at my house for extended nights or daycare where they'll receive affection, attention & care during your absence. Many have such a good time they don't want to leave. I also am happy to groom small dogs upon request. And, if you wish, photographs I take of pets from Anthem Country Club may appear in ACC's monthly publication,  Inside the Gates.

Pet parents say...

"She is like the pet whisperer."

Vanessa is great. I highly recommend her. I trust her without question with my dog & cat who are my family. I've seen how my pets react around her. She is like the pet whisperer.


~ Lynda

"Our dogs adore her."

Vanessa has been our pet sitter since 2015 and our dogs adore her. She is an amazing photographer and emails photos while we're away. Vanessa is a kind caring person you would welcome in your home and implicitly trust with your pets.


~ Sharon

"I highly recommend her to care for your beloved pet."

Vanessa is a joy to work with and goes above and beyond in caring for my dog. She is polite and friendly and her beautiful photographs taken while we were away not only captured the essence of my super energetic ball-loving dog but also gave me the peace of mind that my dog was happy and safe while we were gone.

PS: Do you need family or pet portraits? Would you like to own a hard-cover book of your pet? Or frame a memorable poster? I'll create a keepsake you'll be proud to display. Below are some pieces I created for clients, and for my own enjoyment too, such as my Very Vivi Collection.
