Hi, my name is Anita and I am a long time resident of Orange County and live in Anaheim with my two ten year old doxies, Toby and Abagail my kids! Their individual personalities make them so wonderful and unique! My parents believed that your pets are part of the family. Consequently, when we have family gatherings(I am one of six children), there are more dogs than people running around and I would not have it any other way! It’s great to be part of the Poochsitter family of animal lovers!Anita supports Pooch Sitter clients in the Anaheim Hills area.
