Dena was a fantastic host- super flexible, friendly, and communicative. Most importantly though, she took great care of my pups for a week. They came back happy and worn out from a week of running in the woods and hanging in the mountains. Highly recommend.

What Dena would like to know about your dog

My home is located just outside Golden Gate Canyon State Park, so if your pups enjoy being outdoors and trail hikes, they will love staying at our cabin in the country!

I would prefer to know your fur-babe's (approximate) daily schedule so I may accommodate as closely as possible. Like people, animals have individual preferences and issues. The more information you can provide the better. Your pups happiness and safety is my #1 priority!
