A lovely family with children who made our dogs' stay so much better. They played with her and let her sleep with them which made her feel loved. It's been the best experience, knowing that they took such good care of her.

I’ve used Charmela and Russell a few times now to watch my baby (miniature poodle) and can’t speak highly enough about them. My dog is VERY spoiled so I’ve found it very hard to trust someone with my sweet Buttercup. They have the sweetest family and the little kids are so sweet. When i pick up my baby can tell she’s been having so much fun and so well taken care ...

Fun loving family for your fur baby

My husband and I have grown up with dogs both big and small. Our kids have learned to love and care for their own pets. We currently have a Mini Chocolate Labradoodle, Peppa, that has the ...

What Charmela & Russell would like to know about your dog

We prefer to watch small to medium sized dogs as we live in a condo. We ask that the dog(s) in our care be well tempered and gets along well with other dogs and children of all ages.
We are open to setting up a quick meet and greet in our home if you desire. Otherwise, we are ready to make your pup a part of our extended family.

*We also ask that your dog is up to date on vaccinations and has been treated for fleas/ticks.

When Charmela & Russell watches your pet

We live across the street from Serrano Park and the forest trails. Your pup will enjoy a family walk which will usually end with a game of fetch. Our older kids have baseball games at various parks throughout South Orange County and pups are always welcome to join in on the fun (if you desire). While we do enjoy the outdoors, we also like to cuddle on the couch for a good movie and the pups are more than welcome to relax with us. Our kids love animals and we have always had a dog in our home. They are wonderful and responsible helpers. It’s nice to have extra sets of eyes and hands to ensure your dog is in a fun, yet safe environment.
