About Angela

I have a very active and playful pointer, Kenzie. Kenzie is still a pup and is sometimes nervous/shy around larger dogs. She tends to warm up pretty quick and then loves having a playmate over. We live a mile from the beach so our day typically starts with a beach walk/run/. Then we return home for doggie nap time, they sleep, I work from home. At 1pm we take an afternoon stroll through the neighborhood. Around 5:30pm we typically go for a longer adventure: a hike, a bike ride or a trip to the beach. I have lights for the dogs to wear at night as my dog does not care if it is cold or dark out, she still needs her play time. The dogs have access to a large yard to run around in which is completely fenced in. I like to play games with the dogs to keep them busy, setting up agility courses, playing tag, find it, fetch, or soccer. Dogs are happy and content after spending a few days playing at our house.

Matt and Angela were great! Koda had a great time playing with Kenzie at the beach or the park each day. We loved getting photos of her while we were gone. When we got home, Koda was exhausted from having so much fun. We'll definitely look to Matt and Angela next time we go out of town!
Angela was amazing! She sent great pics of my pup and kept her well entertained! I recommend them anytime! Great hosts. Very responsive and experienced. Loved them!!!
They had a blast! Awesome hosts :)
Matt & Angela did a phenomenal job caring for Ukko (my golden). It's hard to enjoy a vacation when you're concerned about your pup's wellbeing - Matt & Angela eliminated this worry with frequent photo and video posts of Ukko having a blast at the beach with Kenzie. They also were willing to administer ear cleaner/infection medication, which is important for my floppy-eared canine. Ukko was happy to see me when I got back home, but I honestly think he was a bit depressed to leave his new companion, Kenzie. We'll be coming back soon!
Angela & Matt were amazing! Nibbles is a small, timid dog and both of them seemed to really take this into consideration and make her feel safe. When I came back to pick her up she was having so much fun and almost seemed sad to leave. Not to mentioned she slept like a baby that night due to all the fun exercise!! Angela was very patient with me as I am such a scardy cat when leaving my dog with anyone. She let me walk around her yard to make sure Nibbles couldn't escape anywhere. I really appreciated that she didn't take it personally and understood the "paranoid parent" I was. Will be making lots of bookings with them in the future :)
Angela and Matt are great hosts. We were looking for someone to watch Joey while we were away for the holidays and thanks to a last minute cancellation we were able to book Angela and Matt. We have an Australian Shepherd who needs a fair amount of exercise (we normally give her about 2 hours/day). This was a great fit for Joey as she had other dogs to play with and went on several good trips a day (to the beach, hiking, or walk around the neighborhood), but also got all the personal attention that she loves. We got regular updates via photos and videos that they sent to us almost daily. Joey clearly was having a good time which let us enjoy our trip without having to worry about her. When we picked her up she slept for two days!
I needed someone to watch my 5 month-old puppy last minute and Angela and Matt were incredibly accommodating, easy to communicate with, and so good to Pierre!

I'm in LA and so I didn't have the opportunity to do a meet and greet before my trip to Santa Barbara. They were willing to have our dogs meet the day that I arrived in town (which was the same day I needed them), and it worked out great! They took my dog to the beach, tolerated his snoring at night, and sent me pics and video of him playing with the other dogs in the house. Pierre was so tired when I picked him up -a sign that he played to his heart's delight!

It was my first experience using DogVacay and Angela and Matt made it a great one! I would totally use both the site and Angela and Matt again! Thanks guys! (And sorry about the snoring!)
Angela and Matt were great. Our pup was so tired after we picked him up from all of the play time he got with their dog. They took him to the beach and the park over the weekend and sent us some cute pics. I would definitely recommend them!
Angela and Matt were fantastic -- our dog had a great time with them, and clearly misses hanging out with their dog Kenzie. They kept in touch and sent photos/videos every day. We'll definitely be using them again soon. Thanks Angela and Matt!
Angela and Matt were awesome! Our dog took to their dog very quickly and within an hour of us dropping her off we got a photo of her having a great time on a hike! The next day she also got a trip to the beach! We would definitely recommend them and use them again anytime we are in the area.
Angela & Matt were wonderful, I could not have asked for a better host for my 8 month old Lab. They were able to take her on very short notice, which was excellent, for almost 10 days! We were able to meet a few times before her stay, so their dog, Kenzie, and mine (Kaia) could get acquainted. Kaia is a very nervous puppy and is usually quite scared when meeting new people and dogs. By the time I left their home the night I dropped her off, Kenzie and Kaia were running around and wrestling like best buddies. Kenzie is a very active dog, which was great for Kaia, because she has so much puppy-energy. Angela and Matt both sent me multiple updates, and pictures of Kaia when I was away, which was awesome. When I returned home it was apparent that Kaia had an absolute blast with them! She slept for about 2 days, and I could tell she missed her new friend Kenzie. I truly could not have asked for a better host, I would recommend Angela & Matt 11/10 times!!
Totally pawsome!

Angela and Matt were great. It was VERY short notice. I came over the night before to introduce my two dogs to her pointer Kensie (who is smaller and younger than my dogs). We met a block away from the house so that the dogs could meet on neutral territory. Kensie was nervous at first and then fine. Then when we got to her house, she was nervous again, a bit growly. We hung around for about 45 minutes and by the time my dogs and I left, they and Kensie were running around like old pals. Kensie's a sweetie.

My dogs spent the day and the night there, and came home happy.

Angela was very conscientious and sent me two texts with photos and updates of the pups. :-)
