Our Rudy had his first overnight with Stef and it went great. Rudy seemed very comfortable and happy in the pictures that she sent us throughout the stay, he was so "at home" that he entertained them with his lyrical snoring when he napped :). Stef is an absolute dog whisperer as she knew exactly how to greet Rudy and make him feel safe as he can be a little nervous in new surroundings. We ...

Stef has been wonderful with Mimoso. He's 14 years old and has the regular issues that big dogs have with his hips and knees. She wonderfully animate with him, sends great updates, and is so patient with him. He doesn't do anything quickly, so that's very appreciated.

Stef is incredible! She’s been dropping in once to twice a day daily for our puppy, consistently over the past few months. Her reliability, punctuality and most importantly love for Cannoli has been amazing. I am so grateful for Stef as she’s been an incredible help to us!!

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.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement

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.
