Stef is great! She was punctual and very sweet to my pup. She took great care of him and make me feel comfortable with Howie in her care. When I came home he was happy as can be and acted like he had a great day with Stef. She sent pictures and updates which were helpful. I will definitely book again with Stef!

Stef has been walking our dog for over a month now. We couldn't have a more responsible, reliable, and loving caretaker for our pooch. Stef has been good about listening to our instructions and has shown Mountie tons of love and affection. We look forward to getting the pictures of him from her visits each day. Thank you Stef!

Stef was great! Can tell she really loves dogs and took great care of mine. Sent plenty of pictures and updates, got Emma out for some long walks and was really flexible with pickup and drop off. Would definitely recommend

Cozy Sunset Paradise for your Dog

Rob and I are huge dog-lovers. Growing up, my family always had dogs and I have always had a soft-spot for all animals big and small; dogs top the list. Most recently, we cared for our 16 year old Labrador Shar Pei mix. Even before we got married, we knew that having children would not be an option for us but were open to adoption. So we went to SF SPCA and adopted our beautiful ...

What Stef would like to know about your dog

We love ALL breeds and are capable of caring for dogs of any size and energy level. Upon reservation, we would like to meet with the owner and their dog first and get a sense of their personality and a list of any special needs, or health problems, medicine or special feeding instructions, or if the dog has been "fixed" and if the dog gets along with other dogs.

When Stef watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Parkside Square, McCoppin Square and Stern Grove are all walking distance from our apartment. All great parks! We can also hop in the car and take a short drive to Ocean Beach, Lake Merced or Fort FUNston.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I would encourage owners to provide a bed for their dog so they have something familiar to them. We will put their bed by a window so the breeze can lull them to sleep. Or they can sleep wherever they want, we'll make sure they're comfy.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work from home and so your dog will always have a companion who will be attentive to their need to eat, play and potty. A typical day would start with a morning walk/ potty break. Depending on your dog's energy level, a stroll or a power walk to any of the nearby parks or a short, easy drive to either Ocean Beach, Lake Merced or Fort Funston. I will make sure your dog stays hydrated and then home for a nap. Afternoon walks to any of the nearby parks like McCoppin, Parkside, or Stern Grove. Great time for play with your dog's favorite outdoor toy. Evening /potty break before your loved one settles in for a good night.
