Dog Boarding in Melrose, Oakland
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight at your sitter's home.
“Our family’s fav. We love getting pics and updates when we’re away. Our girl always has a great time and loves spending time with her doggie play pal. Chawntea is the best provider!”
“Chad was lovely with our two dogs - dealt calmly with our nervous older boy, and the younger dog had a good time playing outside. Very accommodating with a lot of last-minute rescheduling, and the atmosphere is just what our dogs feel comfortable: a family home, where they can nap on the couch and potter about.”
“Kelsey and Harvey were *incredible* sitters for my little terrier mix pup, Penny! This was the first time I've traveled without my dog in a while and they gave me nothing but peace of mind while leaving my girl in their hands. Amazing photos, communicative and quick to respond updates, all showed me how comfortable my girl Penny was in their home and with their sweet dog Maggie. I will definitely be booking Kelsey and Harvey again soon! ??”
“We’re new to the area and searched for a new pet sitter, which isn’t a fun task. Collin was open to a meet and greet, which eased our concerns. During the stay, we knew Henry was in the best of hands with Collin and his family. We received daily updates throughout our trip. He looked right at home in all of them. We’re fairly certain he was a bit sad to come back home. We will definitely connect with Collin the next time we need someone to watch over our fur kid. Very happy with how well Henry was cared for in our absence.”
“I boarded my dog with Kelly for 9 days while I was out of town and she did a great job. My dog came back to me happy with a wagging tail. She sent me picture/video updates every day to give me a peace of mind. Excellent communication and very professional. I highly recommend her if you’re in need of a dog sitter!”
Elina & Matthew L.
“Elina is a loving pet owner and a great pet caregiver as well. She has watched our fur baby on multiple occasions only as a favor and during those times, our baby Beau has learned new tricks and unlearned bad ones. What makes Elina special is her ability to communicate with the little ones - they listen and they learn. That kind of affinity with fur people makes a huge difference. I would trust her with my kids - both types of mammals.”
“Amy is friendly and nice. She took good care of Kobe while we were away! She sends picture of Kobe everyday. Would definitely recommend her if u are looking for someone reliable to look after your pet!”
Timothy & Katherine H.
“Tim and Kat were super awesome! They were really good about sending photos videos and updates about our dog and took a lot of care in keeping them entertained. Our dog had a really good time (she's very shy but she still had a lot of fun!)”
“Charlene and her partner were great and my dog and made sure she had the best time possible. Thanks for the updates throughout her stay as well!”
“Kristy was wonderful with my 2 pups for an overnight stay and gave frequent updates with pictures. I could tell my pups were really comfortable with Kristy, her family and her 2 dogs. Looking forward to having my pups stay with her again!”
“Jeff and his family are incredible! Our dog, Billie-Jean, is often anxious when she stays with others but this wasn’t the case at all with Jeff. They made her feel comfortable and she relaxed into their home immediately. Photos showed her tail and ears up, both good signs of happiness. Jeff and his family also went above and beyond to make sure Billie stayed on her schedule having a long off leash hike every morning. We are so happy to have finally found a fantastic dog boarder for our frequent travels.”
“Kim took really good care of my juju! She has always been a shy timid dog but with the picture updates Kim provided throughout her stay she seemed so happy and calm. Kim took extra care when taking her in public and returned home when things started getting stressful from all the human attention. I warned them juju probably would not eat but Kim continued to offer her food. When juju finally ate Kim sent me a picture. The fact that juju ate food with them within 24 hours let’s me know she was comfortable and felt at home. She only stayed for 1 night but I know juju is looking forward to staying a weekend with the montley crew soon!”
“Chris is an extremely caring guy. He took Buddy in for 3 nights and a full day. One of those nights was a short notice since Vegas makes you want to stay there but Chris was able to find time to work around my schedule and add another day. He took Buddy hiking and several other places to keep his legs moving. My dog was happy going in but happier coming out. Thanks again Chris.”
“I found myself in a bit of a bind. My partner was going into a last minute surgery and we needed to find someone to take care of our dog on short notice. I reached out to Dvora and almost immediately heard back. I appreciated Dvora's request to have my dog come by her house and hang out for an hour just to see how she reacted to other dogs and to Dvora's home. Thankfully my dog seemed to adapt well and we confirmed boarding for 3 nights. Over the next few days I got regular updates and even a couple photos which really helped ease my mind that my dog was well taken care of. My partner's surgery went well but we had to stay in the hospital an extra night. Dvora was able to accommodate boarding our dog one more night. Overall, I really appreciate how thoughtful Dvora was in the care of our dog. She really understands the behavioral pattern of dogs. She has a nice backyard which I appreciate because my dog had the space to run around and play. My dog even got along super well with a different dog Dvora was taking care of. What a great experience and would highly recommend Dvora for your boarding needs.”
“My pup absolutely LOVED his stay with Kelly and her wonderful family. In fact, I’m sure he was a bit sad to leave. Great sitter. Cannot recommend enough!”
“Donald did amazing! He kept our 2yr old lab mix for 10 days and there wasn’t a day that we didn’t receive several photos of their activities. Would definitely recommend Donald to anyone in the area and will for sure book with him next we need a sitter!”
“We are so happy we found Jhoanna! She is wonderful. Great communication, very friendly, reasonably priced, and happily scheduled a meet and greet before we booked to make sure our dogs got along (which they did!!). I felt very comfortable leaving our dog with her and her family for a long weekend. She sent updates and photos and was very responsive to questions and check-ins. I will definitely book again with Jhoanna!”
“Sarah is an absolute professional and took excellent care of our anxious boy Memo during his first overnight stay with a sitter. He’s an attached and nervous boy and I was worried about leaving him but she kept us updated and we could see that he had a great time! He went for walks and dog parks while he was there and seemed to really enjoy his time with Sarah. When we picked him up he was very happy to see us but calmed down quickly and appeared happy and relaxed despite the separation. We’re so happy to have found Sarah and will definitely be back.”
“Kay was amazing with our grumpy old man. He can be a bit high maintenance but Kay managed him like a pro, gave me regular updates and sent photos. When she dropped him off he even went back to her car to say goodbye which is unheard of.”
“I cannot recommend Ethan enough as a dog sitter. He took care of my dog Nico while I was away, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Ethan's love for dogs is evident in the way he interacted with Nico, making him feel comfortable and loved. He provided regular updates and photos, ensuring that I knew Nico was having a great time. Ethan's professionalism, reliability, and attention to detail were exceptional. I felt at ease knowing that Nico was in such capable hands. If you're looking for a trustworthy and caring dog sitter, Ethan is the one to choose.”
