About Nancy

/////*No New Clients At This Time*/////

***EXISITING CLIENTS MESSAGE FOR AVAILABILITY & QUOTE***


My Cairn Terrier (like Toto from The Wizard of Oz) hikes Griffith and Runyon, chases squirrels, digs holes, plays fetch and takes long walks. Sometimes we just lay in the sun or snuggle on the couch, but this is definitely an active and loving home that is grain free and big on attention.

I've raised four rescue dogs in my life - German Shepard, Black Lab, Lhasa Opso and now my Cairn. Having learned so much from each of them and the love I have for dogs in general, I'm excited to welcome your loved one into our home and help you be at ease knowing they're well cared for while you're away. I know nothing can keep you from missing your pet, but a confidence in them being comfortable and loved while you're gone is a great help.

We live close to lots of parks and hikes where the sun shines and fetch is a regular event! Inside we have lots of toys, treats and snuggles. Amos is the kindest and most welcoming host - his love and care for each pup that visits is truly humbling to see as his Mamma - I couldn't be more blessed by my little guy.

Meet and Greets are welcomed and encouraged so please reach out with any questions or to schedule a visit. We'd love to meet you!

***Please note price difference for Large ($45/night) and X Large ($50/night) breeds.

***Upcharge for last minute bookings may be added.

Nancy to the rescue! Yet again, she provided the best possible care for our pup. Thank you Nancy!
Nancy is the best pet sitter around!
Once again, Nancy saves the day by taking the best care of our fur baby! I can't recommend her enough.
Nancy took great care of George! As usual, I'm very happy and lucky to work with her as such an attentive, enthusiastic pet sitter.
Wonderful experience as always. Nancy and Amos (and Artemis) were very flexible with my always changing travel plans. Coco's experience with Nancy is always a great one. I'm pretty convinced Coco likes spending time with the "mole pack" maybe sometimes more than with me.

Nancy is wonderful!
Once again, my pup had a stellar stay with Nancy! As always, she takes the very best care of him and is incredibly communicative and helpful. Nancy is a true dog whisperer - I can't imagine working with anyone esle.
Nancy was very flexible with my ever changing travel plans. Great experience as always!!!
I apparently missed this review from months ago and normally I'd lazily skip it but Nancy and Amos are the best with Coco. So accommodating for just a day or a week (and then some). Excellent experience as always.
Another great trip. Coco and her crew got to chase squirrels around the park. Squirrel Squad! Anyways great experience as always. Good communication and lots of pictures and updates.
Just a quick day trip but Nancy, Amos, and Artemis kept Coco company. Great communication and overall experience as always.
Coco had another wonderful stay with Nancy, Amos, and now Artemis. Lots of walking (and lots of happy lizard hunting). Great communication including a crack of dawn wake up.
Fantastic experience as always. Coco had a wonderful time and was well attended. Lots of pictures and updates throughout the trip.
Kuma's vacations are always filled with more fun than mine it seems. Nancy is amazing and her pack always lets Kuma have a good time, and come home exhausted!
Nancy is a dog whisperer! She always takes the best care of my pup and her energetic, positive, loving attitude makes me feel so comfortable leaving him in her care.
Another excellent stay with Nancy - as always, she takes the best care of my fur baby.
I don't think Nancy could be a better dog sitter if she tried! She always takes exceptional care of my pup. I feel so lucky to be able to have someone like her that I can entrust his care to when I am out of town.
Happy Beans and her Nancy/Amos/George crew had a great time as always. Makes me sad to have to do so many trips but I'm happy knowing Nancy takes great care of Coco.
5 whole days with Nancy and Amos...Coco loved it. Daily updates with pics and videos. She is happy to be home but hanging with Nancy is very close.
Nancy is a bright shiny person and Amos is the most wonderful and loving co-pilot! Your pup will be SO loved while you are gone. Both Nancy and Amos took such good care of my rather high maintenance 13 y o Jack Russell. She sent lots of pictures and was always in very good touch. We just love their little fur family and can't wait to go back!

Super great experience as always. Great communication, coordination, and flexibility through always changing flight delays/
Great stay always. Great coordination and communication. Photos throughout the trip showing a happy pup the whole time.
As always, leaving our dog Jimmy in Nancy's care let's me and my boyfriend rest easy knowing that he's in good hands. We just got back from a two week trip during which Nancy provided great care for our dog. Leaving your dog for that long can be tough, but we got updates and pictures from Nancy that showed us he was happy, relaxed, and getting lots of play time in. Jimmy loves spending time with Nancy and Amos, and we will definitely be reaching out to Nancy whenever we are looking for someone to care for our dog.

Rocky had an amazing stay again with Nancy. She was there for 10 days, which is the longest we have ever left her. Since we were out of the country it was a huge help to get the emails with photos and videos showing a happy dog!
Excellent experience as always. Worked with me on a last minute addition and subsequent cancellation. Very flexible and accommodating. During the trip great status and adorable pictures. She even got Coco to experience some new things (like spending time with kitties and not trying to eat them!).

Nancy is a pack master! Kuma has a great time with friends and family and came home a tired and happy puppy once more. Thanks for always being amazing!
Back to back trips and Nancy and Amos were great and accommodating. We are now at the point where Coco is happier to see them than me. And then sad when they go. That is a great feeling to know how much your dog likes staying with them.
Excellent experience as always. Coco was so excited to see Nancy and Amos.
Happy Beans! Happy Beans! Just a day trip but my pup got the same great care and treatment. She is just as happy to Nancy and Amos as she is to see me. Definitely a stress-free stay as always.
Great experience just like every other time. Nancy and Amos love my pup and she is so happy to spend time with them. Makes traveling very stressfree (well at least related to worrying about the dog).
Thank you Nancy for being so flexible when life gets crazy. You are the best!
Nancy is terrific! Kuma always comes home happy, healthy and tuckered out. So glad to have a second home for him.
I could continue to sing Nancy's praises all day! She is a top-notch dog sitter and I really enjoy working with her. My pup adores her as well.
Nancy is the best! Once again, she gave my pup a happy and comfortable home away from home. I really appreciate her energetic, friendly demeanor. I feel great about leaving my pup with her.
Nancy is the best! Her exuberant, friendly personality makes her a great dog watcher as well as a pleasure to work with. She immediately made my pup and I feel at ease when we met her, and has always been very communicative and helpful. I feel great about leaving my pup with her - I know he is in the best of hands. In fact, he has so much fun, I sometimes wonder if he's sad to leave her and come back home!

Nancy was amazing. I hadn't ever left my dog with anybody but family so I was full of trepidation. Nancy kept in contact with text with updates, pictures, and video. My dog was super happy when I picked her up and seemed as though she'd been on vacation herself. Nancy will be the first person I contact the next time I need a dogsitter.
Read More...
Great experience as always. Pick up and drop off at the agreed upon times, status throughout the trip, and even some cute pictures that I of course immediately uploaded to FB. Highly recommend as always.
Rocky had another wonderful stay with Nancy. This time we were gone for almost 5 days, but each day we got several photos of Rocky playing and having a grand old time with the other dogs. Nancy is always very reliable and easy to reach, and our dog is always in such a great mood when we pick her up!

Great experience as always. Coco had a great day with Nancy and Amos.
Nancy and Amos did a great job as always. Good updates and some cute pictures of their adventures. No worries from my end.
Rocky clearly had a great time with Amos and Nancy. It's wonderful getting the photos and videos of her stay and Nancy couldn't be a better sitter!
fantastic nancy thank you so much as always for your expert and loving care of de boyz !!!!!
Back to back trips and Nancy covered it with no problems. The pup was happy to see me almost as much as she was happy to see Nancy and Amos.
Great experience as always. Nancy worked with me on a very short notice work trip and arranged everything to keep the stress level low for me and the pup. Very appreciative.
this is the fifth time we've left our dogs with Nancy and she is terrific. Both Maddox and RG had a great time as usual. Fun hikes and outings are always part of their stay, and we get plenty of photos and videos that help make us miss them just a little less.

Nancy is the by far the best pup-sitter in all of California. Kuma is happy, exhausted and has made so many new friends! Thanks again for all you do.
I am so grateful to have found Nancy! She took excellent care of my pup and has been so pleasant to work with. She is very responsive and communicative, and took a genuine interest in learning about my dog and what would make a great stay for him. She is so warm and enthusiastic, my pup fell in love with her right away and almost didn't want to seem to come home with me. Thanks, Nancy!

I think my pup has spent more time with Nancy and Amos in the past month than I have. I'm fine with that since she seems to really like it. As per usual great communication throughout and the "post stay debrief" just to make sure I know what all happened. Smooth and easy so I don't worry when I travel.
Read More...
This was a long one but constant contact throughout. Always like to see pictures of the pup having a good time with her "pack away from home". They've got their Pack Mom Nancy watching them the whole time. Great experience as always.
Rocky had an amazing time with Nancy and Amos. She seemed super happy when we picked her up and was definitely still in a playful mood when we got home. I could tell she was well taken care of. Despite destroying one of Amos' toys and having a couple of accidents, Nancy was still very loving and excited to have Rocky around!

You know how awesome it is to go on a work trip and not worry about your furbaby? If you don't know that feeling then you should give Nancy a call. If you know that feeling then tell Nancy hello for me.
Nancy and Amos are the best! They make sure Nutmeg gets lots of love and plenty of exercise (long walks, hikes, playtime.) It's hard to leave our pup, but Nancy always sends photos and videos so we can see what Nutmeg is doing. Thanks, Nancy and Amos for taking great care of Nutmeg!
Read More...
Just a quick Saturday overnight but same level of communication and care that Coco has got on her longer stays. Coco even now has a lizard hunting buddy to go along with her on the trails.
Awesome as always. Great communication both before, during, and after the stay. Even tries to mimic my routine so my pup isn't anxious while I'm gone. She gets to see her dog friends in the park and that makes her happy (and me less guilty!).
Nancy was truly a fantastic host for my dog Katie, who spent a week at her place. I got several photos and updates via text, and it's always very reassuring when you're away to know your dog is in such good hands. They went on regular walks, to the dog park, etc.

When my dog came back to my place she was completely herself, which was a completely different experience from a recent time she stayed at a kennel and acted like a zombie after returning. I'd highly recommend Nancy as a host!

As always, our dog Jimmy was relaxed and happy after spending time with Nancy and her dog, Amos. Jimmy loves being with them, and is always so excited and happy whenever he gets to stay with them. Amos is a great influence on Jimmy too. Nancy always sends pictures of the fun things she and the dogs do and I could tell Jimmy truly had his own vacation during his time with her and Amos.

Coco had spent a day with Nancy and Amos but this was the first with an overnight (well 7 of them) and it went great. Pick up and drop off were well coordinated and even worked with me when my flight was delayed. Daily updates with pictures of Coco having fun and seeing the city. Nancy gets out and about town. Even a couple pictures of Coco at her favorite park with her dog friends. Great experience for both of us.

She is always amazing and this time was no different.
This was our second time leaving our dog, Maddie, with Nancy and Amos. I felt at ease knowing she was staying with them and was reassured by pictures and videos of Maddie enjoying her time with them. Nancy and Amos provide a safe, fun, and very loving environment for your loved ones while you are away! We will continue using Nancy and Amos for as long as they will have us!
Read More...
I love Nancy and Amos are amazing. The photos and communication I get while I am away make me feel like I'm part of the fun. I am so happy with my experiences with her that even after I moved clear across town I will make the extra trek to her so that Kuma can enjoy his vacation as much I enjoy mine.
Read More...
Nancy and Amos were great. I was in a bind needing someone to watch my pup on short notice. Nancy was quick to respond and did two "meet and greets" to make everyone got along just fine.

I got status updates throughout the day along with some good action shots of them hiking and seeing the lovely sites in Los Feliz.

Nancy came highly recommended by two people even before I saw the recommendations on this site. Very professional, above board, responsible, and responsive (and very reasonable rates especially considering the level of service). Everything you need to trust someone with your furbaby.

As always, Nancy takes the BEST care of my little guy. It feels like she really loves him almost as much as I do and she pampers him and gives him tons of attention. I haven't felt this comfortable with a dog sitter in years, because she is constantly sending me funny photos and videos to let me know how much fun he is having. It's a comfort. She also doesn't just let all the dogs run wild, but pays attention to continuous training efforts so that your dog will be the best with you and with others. She's great!
Read More...
Nancy is the absolute best, truly. My little baby goes to her everyday and he is so happy to see her every morning. Nancy's baby, Amos, is Hercules' best friend. She takes him on hikes everyday, she sends my pics and videos throughout the whole day of all of his adventures!! I would not trust anyone else with my little baby.
Read More...
This was Nutmeg's second stay with Nancy and Amos and it was another great experience. Nutmeg loves other dogs and she always has playmates at Nancy's. She gets so much exercise that she's exhausted when she comes home, and that says a lot because she's a high energy pup. We love the daily photos and videos, it's so comforting to know Nutmeg is having fun while we're away. It's obvious she feels right at home with Nancy & Amos -they are awesome!

My dog Aubie (the cute mutt in some of the pics) stayed with Nancy months ago and I cannot believe that I did not leave a message/review. Aubie was in heaven while I was away for just over a week. I cannot say enough about Nancy and her sweet Amos. There is no other place that I will leave my girl. I just need to go somewhere again!
Read More...
Another great stay with Nancy & Amos! Nancy was incredibly patient with my dogs, even when one was behaving badly. Thank you again!
Nancy had so much patience with our puppy, and we're forever grateful! She sent lots of picture updates throughout the week to show how fun Pizza's vacay was. She's awesome.
Nancy & Amos were once again amazing hosts to Nap & Louis. She continues to be the only person I trust to really give the boys a great stay away from home! The frequent text updates help ease my own separation anxiety and they always come home exhausted from all the fun at Nancy's! Highly recommended :)
Read More...
Wonderful as usual! My dog always comes back happy and tired from an active, presumably fun stay with Nancy and Co.
My dog had a wonderful, active stay with Nancy!
I genuinely feel like Nancy enjoys and loves being with my dog. She is authentic and just a pure animal lover. I can tell from the many photos she sends me throughout the day that my little canine child is having a great time, and I always feel at ease when I know she is taking care of him. I would highly recommend her!!!

Took a 2 week international vacation over the holidays and our usual Dog Vacay sitter was unavailable. Nancy was the best alternative we could have hoped for and would be our first choice if not for distance. Despite having no access to text she still emailed videos and pictures of their daily hikes/walks. We returned to a very happy, healthy and CLEAN pup. He was anxious and did some light damage at the very beginning, but she handled it very well and was patient with him and even got him to socialize at the dog park and with her adorable Amos.

Very dog-knowledgable, consistent, active, caring, etc etc :)
Read More...
She was great! Thank you!!!
Nancy is wonderful! I have a big dog so I was looking for someone who could give her a lot of exercise and manage her demand for food and treats. Nancy was a perfect fit and my dog came back as happy and fit as ever!
Nancy and Amos are the best! We left our dog Miles with her for a week -- Nancy was also boarding 4 other dogs who were great playmates for Miles. She kept them active and sent us photos and video updates daily. We knew Miles was happy and in good hands!

Nancy watched our Maltipoo, Maddie, while we went to visit family during Christmas. Maddie is our baby and treated as such, probably more than we realize! So we are always careful who watches her. We set up a 'meet n greet' to meet Nancy and her dog, Amos. Amos greeted Maddie with excitement and they immediately started playing, especially when they realized they share the same favorite toy! Nancy let Maddie roam around to become familiar with the place and Amos while we chatted. Nancy definitely has a love for dogs which showed and is very personable. After choosing Nancy and Amos to watch Maddie, we were sent pictures every day and even a video of Maddie playing at the park, going on walks, or just hanging out on the couch. It made me feel better knowing what she was doing and could see she was having a really fun time. Nancy also is very prompt to answer texts if you ever want to see how your little one is doing. When we came to pick Maddie up, Nancy had even given her a bath! She came home smelling and looking pretty, just how she likes to be. Maddie is very spoiled, I'll admit it, but Nancy catered to her in every way and didn't complain about her high maintenance :) I would definitely recommend Nancy and Amos!
Read More...
Nancy is fantastic. She is so easy to work with - a great communicator. She really helped me out in a jam, when I was out of town and my dog needed a place to stay last minute. This was my second time boarding Pugsley with Nancy and Amos, and I would definitely feel confident leaving him in her capable hands any time.
Read More...
Nancy was great! She was so sweet and caring to my little Omar. From the moment I walked in for the meet-and-greet I felt really confident leaving him in her care. You can just tell she treats all dogs like they are her own. And Omar had such a good time playing with Amos. Their home is a cozy, comfortable, fun environment for dogs. My dog has some anxiety issues, but Nancy handled them with grace and I am really grateful for that. She is a true dog-lover and a true professional. Thank you Nancy & Amos!!
Read More...
Our dog, Nutmeg, had a great time with Nancy, Amos and other dog friends! Nancy sent us photos and videos every day of our trip so we could see all of Nutmeg's adventures -they went out on hikes, ran around at the dog park, and played and played and played. It's obvious Nancy is a dog lover and she knows that dogs need lots of exercise and playtime. Also, she brought Nutmeg to us at the end of our trip (for a small extra charge) -so worth it!
Read More...
My dog had a great time with Nancy (as evidenced by the many photos/videos she sent). Nancy is definitely a dog person, and made this process an easy and convenient option to traditional dog boarding. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with Nancy, and will use her services again!
Read More...
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Nancy. My dog Sufi has some anxiety issues and Nancy couldn't have been more patient, sweet, loving, and competent in caring for my baby. I truly felt like she really cared about my dog and that means the world to me, so I could relax and know that my doggie was in good hands!
And her dog Amos (co-host) was adorable. He too did his darnedest to make Sufi feel at home, even offering her toys and food. Too cute! Would highly recommend Nancy, and plan to use her again. Thank you again, Nancy, for taking such loving care of my baby:-)

Nancy took great care of our dogs! She is a true dog lover, and they really seemed to enjoy all the walks and attention. They were happy, relaxed, and exhausted at the end of the weekend. Nancy is also great to work with -- very responsive and flexible in arranging a meet-and-greet as well as drop-off and pick-up times. We will definitely call her again! Thank you Nancy and Amos!

Nancy is by far the best dog sitter I have ever had. Not only is she the sweetest and most caring dog owner but she extends that love and compassion to her temporary guests.

The pictures, videos and text messages made me feel like he was on his own little vacation while I was on mine. While my pup was happy to see me I know he will miss being in the company of Nancy and Amos.
Read More...
This was the first time I've had to leave my dog Maddox with someone that I didn't know. Let's just say I was nervous and stressed at the thought of leaving him for the long holiday weekend.

Not only were my fears unfounded, but after seeing the pictures and video of Maddy playing and lounging, I wondered if he'd want to come back home with me!

Nancy and Amos were wonderful hosts and I will definitely book with Nancy again in the future. Knowing Maddy was having so much fun, I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation!
Read More...
Nancy and Amos to the rescue once again! A very last minute business trip left me in a bind and Nancy & Amos were incredibly accommodating in taking Nap & Louis with less than 24 hours notice. I'm so glad I had Nancy to rely on from a previous boarding and I was far less stressed knowing the boys already had a wonderful stay with her and Amos. When I took the boys over they were so excited they wouldn't even say bye to me, so I knew they were once again in good hands! The numerous updates were great and really gave me additional comfort that they were having an amazing time. I picked them up and they were happy, healthy and exhausted and didn't want to leave! Thanks again Nancy & Amos!!
Read More...
Nancy was so wonderful to agree to take my pup for me a few days before I headed out of town for a week.

I usually bring him with me when I travel so was worried about leaving him behind. Nancy did everything to make us feel comfortable! Nancy was so accommodating. She sent updates every day (pics, texts, etc.) She took my pup on hikes every afternoon and gave him so many cuddles and so much attention! She even let me pick him up extremely late when my plane was delayed coming home.

We would absolutely recommend Nancy to anyone needing someone trustworthy to watch their dog, and we plan on using her many more times!
Read More...
Nancy is wonderful. This was my first experience with her, and she is a true to heart dog lover of all sizes and shapes, and she treated my canine kid with nothing but love and care. How do I know this? Because she kept in touch with me throughout each day with photos and videos so I knew just what he was doing, who he was hanging out and playing with, and more so, many notes of how much she was enjoying taking care of him. She's very attentive and loving and provides a warm and playful home for the dogs to socialize and sleep over. I will definitely be entrusting her to take care of Bailey again in the future!
Read More...
Nancy made the process very easy. We scheduled a 'meet and greet' just a few days before my trip. She was very accommodating with my schedule. I got frequent updates about Roxy's stay with pictures and video, leaving me no doubt that she was in good hands. Her Amos seems to love the extra company and had no problem sharing his toys and treats. Overall, great experience and wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
Read More...
Always a great experience with Nancy. Sophie loves her and her dog/s and always comes back home pooped out. Nancy is very pleasant to work with and always tries her best to help with sitting my pup--even when I give short notice.

Couldn't ask for a better sitter.

THANKS!

Nancy is great. She's trustworthy and easy to work with. She took great care of our dog, Jimmy. We left him with Nancy and her dog, Amos, for a weekend, and we could tell Jimmy was relaxed and happy when we came back home. Nancy was also fair in her pricing and accommodated our schedule by picking up and dropping off Jimmy.

I cannot say enough great things about Nancy. This is the 3rd stay for my dog, Grady. He loves her and considers her place his second home. Nancy eased my mind by texting me daily pictures of Grady. He always looked happy and relaxed. I highly recommend her.

Nancy and Amos were truly amazing hosts to my two french bulldogs!! I had a hard time finding someone I could trust with my boys and was apprehensive to leave them at all. Nancy came highly recommended from a friend of mine who had found her on dogvacay and whose two puppies had recently completed their stay. Through the initial meet-n-greet, Nancy's love for dogs was evident and she was extremely understanding of all of my crazy parent anxiety and requests. My dogs can be a bit difficult with other dogs and they took to Amos and his gentle demeanor wonderfully. Nancy's frequent text updates while I was away really helped to ease my own separation anxiety and my boys looked like they had the best time! I worried about them very little, which is rare when I'm away from them. They were happy, healthy and completely worn out when I picked them up! I couldn't have asked for better hosts. I will be using Nancy for all of my boarding in the future. Thank you again Nancy & Amos! Nap & Lou miss you already :)

Rest assured that when you are leaving your pet with Nancy, you are leaving them in good hands. Nancy gave my pup so much love, snuggles, affection and good ol' play time that I actually feared she wouldn't want to come home! The love she has towards all animals is so apparent from the very start. I got a constant stream of updates (pictures and videos) while I was away so not once did I worry about her care. I would without hesitation recommend Nancy!
Read More...
Nancy was terrific! My 2 year old lab Zeke is a good dog, but young and has tons of energy. So I was a little concerned about leaving him with a pet sitter.

He loved staying with Nancy and I appreciate that he got plenty of exercise with her. And she sent me plenty of texts and pics, so I knew he was having a great time. That was really helpful-- I could focus on my business trip, knowing that Zeke was well cared for. I'll be using Nancy whenever I need to go out of town!

Nancy is a real sweet person. She was very accomidating and helped me out by taking care of my puppy last minute. She has great communication and will be perfect for anyone looking for an honest, friendly sitter. Thanks so much!
Nancy was great and we would gladly leave our puppy with her again. He got lots of exercise and affection, and we got frequent updates and peace-of-mind.
Nancy was wonderful! She listened to all of Pugsley's special needs and issues. She sent lots of updates and pictures, which I loved. I felt confident that he was in experienced, capable hands with Nancy and Amos. Thank you so much!!!
Nancy was a life saver! She was very flexible, as I found her less than a week before my vacation. She has an adorable pup who was great company for my two terriers less than a year old each. Needless, to say, I was very worried about leaving them with anyone, but Nancy quickly made me feel comfortable and I could tell she loves to care for animals. She sent many pictures daily and even video of my pups at the park! As a final touch, she gave them both a great bath the day I picked them up, so I was greeted with good- smelling happy, healthy dogs. Thank you Nancy!

fantastic, thanks so much Nancy
Nancy accommodated our last-minute booking AND even more last-minute change of plans, and even offered to drop our pup off at the house. She is our go-to sitter! Thanks Nancy!
It's hard to leave town without your pup and not feel massive anxiety about whether or not they'll be properly coddled and doted upon during your absence. This was totally not the case with Nancy - we had a great initial meet and greet with my little Trooper and her boy Amos, and I felt totally comfortable leaving him in her hands while I was away. She sent a handful of pictures every day of him playing, sleeping and walking, and I think they both fell a little bit in love with each other. When we picked Trooper up upon our return, he just wanted to give her more goodbye kisses and snuggles as we left.

Nancy is awesome! We met ahead of time on a walk so our dogs could meet and we discussed my dogs schedule, eating habits, etc. When we did the actual DogVacay, our dogs were happy to see each other and there was a good amount of comfort so my dog didn't even notice when I walked away from the pack.
Amos is such a sweet and generous dog who tried hard to assist my little guy with his separation anxiety. I'm forever grateful to Nancy and Amos for supporting my sad little guy who kept them up all night. I wish there were more sweet and patient people like Nancy in the world. Thank you SO MUCH.

Although Kane only spent one night, Nancy was very accommodating with pick-up and drop-off times. She sent me photos of Kane and her dog out and about, and lounging at home. She lives by a nice park where there is lots of grass and things to sniff. I would certainly leave Kane with her again and recommend her to anyone.

Nancy has proved to me (this being my second time)that she is more than qualified to take care of your furry kids. I haven't met a dog sitter until now who has been so tentative, caring and accommodating to Ninja and to my god awful, bi polar schedule.

Trust that your furry child is in good hands withe her. Not only does she send pictures, but she tells a story as these pictures are sent. That extra does go a long way. I can't trust Ninja with anyone other than Nancy and Ninja's new snuggle companion, Amos.

Thank you so much Nancy. You have saved me and Ninja twice from hell week :))))!

I've had my dog for 9 years, and Nancy is one of the most professional and likeable dog walkers I've worked with EVER! Not only is she very communicative via the DogVacay site and phone (ie, sending pics during walks, overnights, etc.), but she is also a genuine dog lover.

What I like the best is that she really thinks about my dog's needs--and that really sets her apart. I'm so glad I found this site and Nancy--gives me the comfort that my dog is happy too when I am not there with him.

Nancy is a lifesaver! After a subpar experience with a past dogwalker, I've realized that it's important to be a stickler about who I let into my home--especially when I'm not there!--to care for my dog.

Nancy has been professional right off the bat--from her email and phone communication, to our meet and greet. You can tell that she really loves dogs and enjoys caring for them. (And her dog Amos is a sweetheart!). I feel so much better knowing that my dog is in good hands when I can't be there with him. I've already recommended her to my neighbors. 5 stars!

I needed a dog sitter for the weekend fairly last minute and Nancy and Amos came to the rescue. They were fantastic! Nancy was super accommodating, was so loving with my dog, and handled her terrier puppy energy with ease. Amos is a total sweetheart and graciously shared his home and toys. They took great care of her, went on lots of walks and Nancy sent me lots of picture updates. I could relax knowing my pup was in good hands and having fun and when I got back she was happy and worn out from her adventure.

I was looking for a petsitter for my puppy on very short notice, because I was going out of town for a conference. I usually always leave him with friends but this time nobody was available, so I was freaking out a little, because I didn't wanna leave him at a dog hotel where he wouldn't be properly supervised and taken care of, not to mention those hotels are very expensive and bureaucratic. Turns out Nancy was the best host my dog has ever stayed with! She has a very nice, cozy place in Hollywood, very central, where she lives with her small dog Amos who's a sweetheart, and was something like a big brother to my dog during his stay there (even though my dog usually doesn't love other dogs, they were best buddies). Nancy and Amos would take my dog for long walks several times a day, they went hiking at Griffith Park, he was always well fed, bathed and entertained. The best part of all - Nancy sent me multiple pictures a day of what they were up to, it was like a mini-diary of my dog's life! I really enjoyed the pictures and text updates and was so relieved that I've found such an amazing petsitter. In the future I will only leave him with Nancy!
