Even though my dogs stay was short (two nights), Gretchen welcomed my dog into her home and she had a wonderful time.

Gretchen is awesome. She, Ryan, Grace & Lily took great care of our dog. They were flexible enough to allow us to pick him up for a couple hours one day in the middle of his stay. They even gave him a bath. We’ll be back!

Large Fenced Yard with Doggy Door!

Vacation peacefully knowing that you have left your dog(s) to their very own vacation. I live in a house on 1/2 an acre with a low-landscaped, fenced yard that is accessible via doggie door to my very own fur babies. We love going on walks around the lake, hikes all over the San Luis Obispo County and even visiting the local dog beaches and parks. Whether we are staying in or going out ...

What Gretchen would like to know about your dog

Absolutely no breed preferences. I certainly don't mind a dog that is a little bit of a handful as my house is fairly doggie-proofed. I only ask that the owner let me know if there is any behavioral issues with other dogs. I can make adjustments, but better to know prior to arrival.

When Gretchen watches your pet

Walking, beach trips, hiking, and even biking if the dog is comfortable with riding on leash next to the bike.
I have dogs and often take them to the dog park in Atascadero, Templeton, and Morro Bay. If your pup if pet-friendly we will certainly make a trip or two for socialization.
