About Paula

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Three-quarter acre with lots of grassy play areas. Fully fenced (6-ft block wall) and gated (cemented base to prevent digging out). Safe cul-de-sac. High energy dogs welcome. Elderly dogs with special needs also very welcome! Home cooking (chicken-rice-carrots daily and roast beef on Sunday). Ball tossing and loving attention - YOUR DOG WILL NOT BE LONELY OR SAD. Special needs accommodated. (Insulin? Oral medication? Sleeping in mom's bed? Separation anxiety?) I am a card-carrying dog lover, retired from 30 years in the (human) medical field, Home all day.

FIRST TIME BOOKING: Please go to www.dogvacay.com/pro/paulaphipps for $10 off your first reservation!

DayCare ($45 for the 8am to 8pm period) at ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME - Welcomed 8am with a treat and a walk around the neighborhood. Breakfast is a choice of protein: eggs/kibble or vegetarian (tofu). Ball throwing, romping in the yard, helping Mom in the garden (go ahead and dig!), rolling in the grass, swimming in the pool (supervised at all times), resting in the shade (some dogs rest on the couch!), one-on-one supervision and loving interaction, then dinner at 3pm: warm homemade chicken/rice/carrot or roast beef on Sunday (vegetarian/vegan, raw food, grain-free meals available on request). Afternoon walk, tv time or reading with Mom in the den. Wind down, evening snack (apple slices, carrot, cheese) and pick up by 8pm. Individualized play, toys, treats and caresses all day long.

Overnight Boarding ($50 for the 24-hour period, total, i.e. $5 more than DayCare) at ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME - All of the above, with sleeping in crate, in Mom's bed, or any comfy spot your dog chooses. Reassurance and love all night long.

Paula is amazing! Our 3 dogs were so well taken care of. If you are in the Upland area and you do not choose Paula, you are making a mistake.
Paula was the best host for my princess Leia!!! As like many I was hesitant as DogVacay was new for me but I just didn't like the idea of pet kennels and would rather much prefer a home with love and care. Paula offered just that and more! As soon and would rather much prefer a home with love and care. Paula offered just that and more! As soon as I arrived she was very kind and made sure she knew everything she needed to know about my Leia. I got updates daily with photos and this definitely helped me on my vacation to be at ease that my baby was in good care. Paula's updates were on point to Leia's personality so I felt so comfortable that she was ok acting like her usual self. Paula let me know she was eating well and playing and this is all I wanted for her to be at a place like home. My Leia even got to choose where she slept as this is how she does in our home. Leia has now made forever friends with Paula as well with her lovely doggies. I'm truly so grateful for Paula to open her home showing Leia kindness, care, and love. Bring your baby's to Paula you will be happy you did!!!!!

Paula is awesome! She was caring, affectionate, and attentive to our pups, making sure all their needs were met. Usually our dogs are anxious when exposed to a new environment but Paula's calm demeanor made their acclimating so much easier.

We exposed to a new environment but Paula's calm demeanor made their acclimating so much easier.

We are already leaving our whole pack (4 dogs) with her for an upcoming weeklong vacation and have no worries whatsoever.
