I booked Cheryl on the recommendation of a friend, and was very pleased when she came over for a meet & greet. She seemed confident, responsible, trustworthy, asked questions, and my pup seemed to really like her. Cheryl was also great at communicating with me, prior to and after her visit, which I really appreciated. She has only come once but I will absolutely be inviting her back whenever I need pet care for either my dog or my two cats!

Had to run out for a couple of hours at a short notice, leaving Pike alone for the first time since I moved to my new apartment. I asked Kathy to walk him and she did a great job! Since it was such short notice, I didn’t get to meet her, but she still sent me updates about his walk, putting my nerves at ease. I’ll definitely be using her again!

Tharan loves dogs -- he gives my dog a shoulder massage while we discuss routes or dates; after three walks my dog squeals when Tharan comes to the door. --Marcia

Aaron is outgoing, kind and respectful. He communicates in a clear and timely manner, including a description of the walk. He is very conscience of the rules, which I appreciate as my dog has anxiety issues around other dogs. I trust that my dog is in safe hands with Aaron!

Nina has taken wonderful care of my 12-year-old blind Cocker Spaniel, Cali. I have had Nina stay with Cali several times in my home, not wanting to board her since she is blind. Nina is very caring and loving with her and makes sure she has her blankets at night, meals and medications. Cali loves Nina and gets very excited when she comes over. I wouldn’t have anyone else stay in my home taking care of my girl. S. Soto

About: Hello, Are you a busy pet owner in need of reliable and trustworthy care for your beloved pets while you're away? Look no further than my garden retreat for pets where I provide pet care, boarding, day care, training, and dog walking services! I understand that leaving your beloved pets behind can be stressful, which is why as an experienced and passionate animal lover I am dedicated to providing the highest level of care and attention to your pets. From daily walks to overnight stays or training and day care, I offer a range of services tailored to meet your specific needs and ensure your pets receive the attention, exercise, and love they deserve. Trust me to take care of your pets like they're my own, and enjoy peace of mind knowing they're in good hands. I would enjoy the chance to take great care of your beloved pet. I offer a safe, healthy, interactive, environment with plenty of enrichment. Please contact me and we can arrange what care and service I can provide you and your pets. Note: I also can provide home made food made from high quality ingredients from a vet approved recipe custom tailored to your specific dog providing all of its nutrients, minerals, vitamins and other beneficial supplements. And I can provide basic grooming, vet pick up and drop off, & training sessions. My prices are reasonable for high level attentive care. They are based on being able to serve other clients dogs. My daily limit is 3. If you require your dog to be solo (besides my own dog) please let me know when you request the booking. Note: when you reserve a solo dog boarding or day care rate I have to request a 50% increase. I am also certified for pet first aid and CPR. I provide hands-on, eyes-on care of your pet. 24 hours a day 5 days a week. And twice a week I take 1-2 hours to take care of my own needs. And I try to take them with me when I can. So your pet is with me as much as humanly possible. I am available unless booked. Once booked and accepted, your reservation is guaranteed. Preference giving to long-term or repeat clients. If urgent or you are in a tight spot, please let me know and I will try my best to accommodate. My eclectic and enchanted garden studio is home to a rescue dog, several bunnies, and quail. Although the backyard is small, there are plenty of enriching activities available for all my furry friends. For daily exercise, we venture up the street to the spacious and dog-friendly Eling's Park, which is both beautiful and super safe for dogs. Additionally, we make a daily trip to the leashed side of Hendry's Beach or one of the many local parks that are dog friendly and our favorites like Hale Park or Toro Canyon Park plus I plan other interactive and exciting outings based on the individual needs and preferences of each pet. Transportation is not a problem, as I have a dog-friendly Honda Accord equipped with harnesses, bungees, dog seat belts with bungees, and a crate for small to medium size dogs. I prioritize the safety and comfort of your pets during car rides, and the seats can easily be folded down for added space. As a trained professional in emergency first aid for pets, I am prepared for any situation that may arise. I will follow any necessary medication routines or dietary plans, and I am happy to accommodate any specific nutritional needs your pets may have. Behavioral challenges or needs will be discussed with you, and together we will create a customized plan to ensure that your pet feels comfortable and happy in my care. If there is anything else I can do to meet your pets' needs, please do not hesitate to let me know. I am always happy to provide excellent service and tailor my approach to meet the individual needs of each pet.

Lisa is amazing - so genuinely kind and caring to both dogs and their owners! She’s experienced, extremely knowledgeable, and a great communicator. It’s a gift to find someone you feel fully comfortable trusting your beloved furbaby with. My puppy instantly loved her and we both can’t wait for their next outing! :)

Megan was so wonderful and communicative ! I booked her less than 24 hours prior to needing some last minute help with my puppy and she was very understanding, efficient, and professional. I will definitely be using her services again. Loved reviewing photos of my puppy as well which she was kind enough to send !

About: My motto is that it’s my responsibility to make sure that each dog under my care is HAPPY and SAFE. Every day that I’m with your pup , I keep that motto at the forefront of my mind. I know how important dogs are to our lives, so it’s my duty to make sure that your pup gets to experience the same kind of love and care that they’re used to at home . I’m a huge dog lover, so making pups as happy as can just come second nature for me ! Although I’ve been a lifelong dog lover, my experience with pups is much more far reaching than that. I’ve worked with dogs big and small and loved taken care of all of them equally It’s always great to chat with owners about what makes their pup tick ! Finally , I just love meeting new dogs! I like to get down on their level show them that I’m a welcome presence here to make friends, and I’m sure we’ll be best buddies in no time at all

Ashley is one of the most caring, positive, and loving person in my life. I have known her for over 7 years, where she has shown me love, compassion, and unconditional support. She would be the most responsible caregiver for any fur baby.

We have hired Elyse probably 7 to 8 times when we go on vacations. Ranging from weekend trips to couple week trips abroad. Elyse's communication and responsiveness always helps travel with peace of mind as relates to our pets. 2 dogs and 1 cat. She played, walked, fed, and even administered medicine to our dog. Pets are always in good spirits when we return. Elyse is punctual and trustworthy.

We are so happy we met Patrick. In a very short period of time he has become our dog’s friend and champion walker. Our dog is a bit shy, but within a few minutes he had her wagging her tail. She now waits for his arrival in the window, eager to go to the local park for some fun. Patrick is amazing and is highly recommended to walk your dog. He is super polite and goes out of his way to help us. He greets our dog with such care and kindness and makes sure she has water after her walk. He is great at communicating too! We could not ask for a better morning companion for our dog ! Thank you Patrick!
