About Sarah and Mike

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I are friendly, fun, dog-obsessed newlyweds with two playful long-haired dachshunds. We have both grown up with dozens of dogs over the years and love when friends and family bring pets of their own into our home.

Our home is bright, spacious, and all one story -- easy for dogs of all ages to get around comfortably. Our large grass backyard is the perfect place for games of fetch (our dogs go nuts for tennis balls of any size), so we foresee this being a serious activity if your pup comes to hang with us for the day!

Our backyard is fully enclosed. We have never had an issue with a dog escaping from the yard. With that said, there is always supervision when pups are playing out back. We also provide a doggy dog for small dogs who can come in and out of the house as they wish.

We take daily walks with our pups around our tree-lined neighborhood, usually twice/day unless otherwise specified by an owner. I, Sarah, work from home throughout the week, so rest assured your pups will always have someone around for love and attention. We do not leave pups alone for longer than 4 hours at a time and will of course make exceptions for special cases.

When booking with us, please make sure to schedule a meet-n-greet first! We like to conduct these at our home to make sure everyone is comfortable with our space. We do not except bookings without first scheduling a meet-n-greet. These usually take no longer than 20 minutes.


Drop-off times for daycare and overnight boarding are anytime after 9AM.

Pick-up must be before 11AM to avoid an additional daycare charge. Any pick-up after 11AM will result in an additional daycare charge.

Please reach out with any questions at all! We are always happy to chat or address any of your concerns before and during a vacay.

Sarah and Mike live in a beautiful home in Hancock Park with their two adorable and playful dachshunds. They have a large enclosed backyard with ample space for playing fetch or tag with your pups. They also live in a very safe and quiet neighborhood that's also very dog friendly.

Their two little dachshunds have so much personality and would love to meet your pups! Your pups would receive a lot of love, attention, and plenty of playtime.
Sarah and Mike were great hosts and have a wonderful house and backyard. They sent plenty photos and Ollie had a wonderful time.
Sarah and Mike are nothing but welcoming and loving with Darla. They and their beautiful home are always my first choice when I have to head out of town!
Sarah and Mike were great! They had a great place for our dogs; their place was very convenient, clean, and had a great back yard for our dogs to play in. And the most important thing is, is that they took care of our dogs like they were their own. I will definitely use them again when in the LA area. Thank you Mike and Sarah!!
I can't say enough great things about Sarah and Mike. While my husband and I took a vacation, our dog did too. Our little man is like a child to us and we unfortunately have had bad experiences in the past. Sarah and Mike sent us videos and pictures of our dog every day. He had so much fun playing with their adorable dogs and enjoying their stunning, spacious backyard. My husband and I feel so lucky to have found them!
Sarah and Mike took great care of our dog for the week we were gone! They were recommended by family, and we will very happily recommend them to others. Muffin was well cared for and seemed very much at home with them. Thank you!!
Sarah and Mike did a great job taking care of our little Dougie. They are flexible on the pickup/dropoff (which we really appreciate given our long work hours) and gave regular updates along the way. Our dog also has medications, which they were able to handle without any issues. We could tell he loved his stay and loved playing with all the other pups.
One of my dogs is old, deaf, and almost blind so he needs a bit of extra care. It gives me peace of mind to leave my dogs with Sarah and Mike when I leave town. THANK YOU!
They are THE BEST. Flexible with pick up and drop off times and my dog is so happy to go there and sad to leave. They are so kind and keep updates of my dog and his adventures while I am not there. They are the ONLY people I'll leave my dog with :)
Sarah & Mike were great! We were in a bit of a bind because our original hosts had to cancel due to an emergency. Sarah & Mike were able to accommodate us & made us feel calm throughout our first DogVacay experience. In planning the reservation, they were very responsive and had great communication skills. They also sent us a photo update to let us know Harry was having a great time. We also didn't expect our hosts to take Harry on a walk with two dogs of their own, but they took him for two walks even though he's a bit tricky to wrangle on a leash. You can tell they love dogs & we could tell Harry (who has separation anxiety) had a great time. We'll definitely be using their services again.
Sarah and Mike are the BEST to watch your pup. My dog would rather be with them then me! They take great care and send pics and updates. Their gorgeous home and adorable dogs make not only the owner feel welcome, but your dog. They are flexible and easy to work with. My dog will only stay with them...they are the BEST.
Sarah and Mike were fantastic. Our usual hosts were out of town and we were in a bind. As soon as I met them I knew our dog was in great hands. Great people, great home excellent care.
I've never felt so comfortable leaving my dogs with somebody while I am out of town. Both Sarah and Mike are incredibly kind and responsible dog lovers. One of my dogs is a very old, half blind, and deaf shih-tzu who often needs a little extra care and they were beyond amazing with him. They sent daily updates with pictures to keep me posted about how the dogs were doing while I was away and gave me peace of mind while I was out of town.
To say that they are amazing is an understatement! They are overall just great people and my dogs absolutely loved them!
