Joan and Ellen were so kind and easy to work with. Tankie fit right in with their Madison-pup and came home very happy! I felt he was in very capable hands!

Exceptional service. I could tell our poodle CiCi was well cared for. In spite of the rain, Joan picked up and dropped off our pet at so we could attend memorial services. She is attentive our attentive's needs and could tell she has an incredible passion for customer service. I recommend Joan and would ask her to look after our pet next time e are in town. Jaime

Kody goes over to play usually once a week. He loves it there and gets excited when we get close to their house! They are very kind to all of their doggie visitors and always send photos throughout the day. Highly recommend!

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.
