Zoe's stay with Vannessa was wonderful! She came back tired, relaxed, and happy. I would rebook Vannessa anytime.

We left our pup with her for a weekend and it went really well. She kept us up to date with pictures and our dog came home happy and relaxed. Thanks so much Vanessa!

Butt scratches for daaaaysss

*IMPORTANT*: Please don't inquire about any services if you don't regulary check your pet(s) for fleas and provide some type of flea protection for your animal(s). Unfortunately due to past instances, I no longer accept any out of town pets for doggy day care or dog boarding (Santa Cruz County only).

Now I know the first thing that everyone mentions here is their childhood pet but let me tell ya, growing up with ...

What Vannessa would like to know about your dog

It would be very helpful to know a bit about the dog's personality, behavior I should be aware of, training (if any), anxiety/stress issues, and any other information that can help me provide a comfortable, safe, and enjoyable environment for your pet. If your pet is staying over night, I must ask that he/she be bathed before drop off and it is preferred if your dog gets along with other dogs. I will not accept dogs who don't have current flea protection. Please check your pet regularly for fleas.

When Vannessa watches your pet

I like to switch up walking destinations because who doesn't get tired of the same routine? I'd be happy to drive your dog to the beach, a hiking trail, or simply walk them around the block. Whatever you as an owner are comfortable with! I make use of all the toys and treats provided for the dog. If nothing is provided, you can rest assured that your dog will still be entertained and exercised (e.g. fetching stick, running, dog park, etc.).
