Tulu spent a week with Joan and Ellen. I received lots of photos showing my sweet dog having a good time. I'd definitely use them again.

When Joan watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We will go on long walks around our lovely neighborhood. IF you are comfortable with it, we also sometimes take dogs to fully enclosed dog park in Goleta.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog is welcome to sleep wherever s/he feels most comfortable, whether on own dog bed, curling up in on the living room couch or snuggling in bed with us.

Time I'll spend with your dog
One of us is fully retired and home most of the day and so we will be able to lavish your beloved pup with plenty of attention.
