Dog Loving HomeSerramonte, Daly City, CA

Our adorable Lab, River is a very smart, active, and sweet pup who is six years old now! We just love it when he gets to play with other dogs and meet new friends.

So we welcome all friendly pups to come visit our home and to take care of them while their parents are away for work or play. I work a flexible schedule at a bio-science company.

My husband, Ramon has his own insurance business with Farmers Insurance which he can run remotely, allowing him quite a good amount of time to spend at home with River and our DogVacay guests.

Therefore, the dogs are always under our direct supervision. We live in a quiet, safe and dog friendly neighborhood. We take River and his visiting friends to walks at least three times a day. We also go to the Centennial Way Dog Park which is 5 minutes away from our place and Fort Funston very often.

We have all sorts of doggie toys and treats to make their stay more enjoyable! We consider dogs like our kids and always look after them to make sure that they stay happy and healthy. You will be sent updates and photos of your loved ones while you are out on vacation too!

We are very flexible and understand that life is full of surprises, so if your flight is delayed or you hit some traffic on your way back from vacation, we are only a call or text away and will always be happy to accommodate and adjust. We are one of the most understanding and considerate homes you can find out there.

Your beloved pet will have tons of fun and receive a lot of love and attention while staying with our loving family!

DOGS ARE MY EVERYTHINGMoraga, CA

I am a recent empty nester with a large fenced backyard in Vallejo. However, the reason I am posting in Moraga is that I lived in Moraga(near Los Perales Elementary School) for 9 years until Sept.2018. I moved after my youngest graduated from high school in June 2018. I am intimately familiar with LaMorinda(and Oakland for that matter as we lived in 3 houses there). Frankly, there are more families that travel in LaMorinda than Vallejo. My reviews will substantiate my competence in caring for your dog(s). I am willing to pick up/drop off your dog for $10 each way to LaMorinda,Walnut Creek, Oakland and Berkeley or any communities close to those. I live in a nice house with a big back yard. If you want to drive up once and check the place out, perfect! If you prefer not to make the trek to Vallejo even once, I could drive down to meet you with pictures of my new home. I can give you personal references.

In my world, dogs are a 10 and people(in general) are a 5. That is honestly the way I feel. Dogs are just so geeat. I love taking care of dogs and would welcome your dog into my home. Since my dog is allowed on the furniture and bed, so is yours!

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

I have been a dog lover all of my life. As a child, my best friends were my dogs.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

Well, I have owned dachshunds, dobermans, corgis, and I currently have a senior miniature american eskimo but I love all breeds.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes, I have a Toyota Rav 4 and am 11 minutes from 2 local vets, 20 minutes from a night time, weekend emergency vet.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes, I have had several if my own dogs on medications. I am very comfortable administering medications.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

I am pretty much with these dogs 24/7 except when I do an errand where a dog is not allowed. With your permission, I would take your dog with me in the car unless it is too hot to do so . In the event I am gone several hours, I have an experienced high-school or college- aged dogsitter to watch the dogs while I am away.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

A big fenced in backyard. Flat directly in back in an L shaped. Your dog would be watched out in the backyard.

Where will my dog sleep?

Usually your dog will sleep in my bed with me. If it doesn't like the bed, the dogs usually sleep on dog beds around my bed. The dogs like to sleep near me and I like them sleeping near me. Some dogs prefer sleeping downstairs on the couch which is fine by me. Occasionally I get puppies that sleep in crates and I sometimes(owners discretion) place the crate adjacent to my bed, usually with a sheet over it to limit distractions.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

I will take the dog in my neighborhood in a large circle, and check with you about the length of time you want the dog walked if your dog is elderly, isn't normally walked, or has some special medical needs.

Canine ConciergeHillside, Daly City, CA

I love spending time and playing with dogs. I do love to walk and hike. I would like take two to three walks per day. I have a yard where we can play if still not tired from our walks. I like to take them off leash if the recall is good so they can unleash their energy especially the younger ones.

I am caring and I treat your precious one as my own.

Animals are truly your best friendsPotrero Hill, san francisco, CA

I give tons of affection to the animals I watch.. Lots of love and much attention! I am dedicated to making your animals the happiest that I can! I feel I have great intuition with animals needs and am always looking to make my work the most fulfilling and rewarding as I possibly can. I will always make sure you and your animals needs are met and that I will provide the highest quality of love and care possible!

I am home all day, your pooches will get many walks and play throughout the day and tons of attention. i live right near a dog park and some wooded area. I love throwing dogs balls and playing with them, when not on walks, and sitting with them and scratching and petting. I pick up my daughter from school at 3:30 and we usually head to park up street where the dog park is, she plays and i let dogs run around on or off leash depending on what the owner wishes... I have a very energetic 12 year old who is home schooled, who is a violinist, so he practices 4 hrs a day and LOVES to walk with me and play with dogs, if the dogs like the extra attention!

I usually do the last doogie walk around 10:00pm and say good night to babies, up around 6:00 pm and wait fro them to say "they are up" and want attention!

Its just a lot of fun and love!
