5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
- Booking pooches 20lbs and under only for now.

- Holiday boarding rate is $50 per night.


We are dog lovers! We have a friendly rescued Chiweenie (aka German Taco or Mexican Hot Dog) called Auggie. He loves to play with other dogs and has a lot of energy. His favorite things to do include: going for walks, chasing balls, napping (preferably in the sun) and making new friends (humans and furry ones).

We humans also enjoy going on walks. Our favorite places to take the dogs are the Santa Monica beach and the bluff. And our home is located within 10 minutes (walking) from pawtastic Joslyn Park! - Please note pooches need to have proper license in order to visit the Santa Monica parks. :-)

Auggie Mommy’s father is a veterinarian and that's how she fell in love with animals. Since she was a toddler Auggie's Mommy has been around baby chickens, piglets, dogs, cats and small birds.

Auggie's Mommy works from home full time and Doggy Daddy loves to go on long walks in the evenings. We live in a 3-story town home with a secured back patio (no outside access), a rooftop deck and lots of sunny spots!

Our home would be perfect for small dogs under 20lbs.

PLEASE NOTE: We will only take dogs that are well behaved, not aggressive, housebroken, don't mark their territory and are not prone to scratching doors or causing property damage. Any property damage is the dog parent's responsibility.Also, like any other human, we still got out for errands, movie, dinner and concerts, so technically we do not offer 24/7 supervision.

Please check our calendar before making a reservation. In certain cases when we are fully booked, we might be able to accommodate one more dog if we deem he or she will fit in with the other guests. But usually we only have up to 2 guest dogs at a time.

We are not able to accept reservations if your profile is incomplete or if we have not met prior to the reservation. Please have that in mind when asking for last minute reservations. In general, it is best to send a general inquiry including the proposed dates for the meet and greet and also for the proposed boarding dates. Our meet and greet place is Joslyn Park in Santa Monica, with a few exceptions.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have additional questions.

Woof! Woof!

Tatiana and Tony are marvelous people and nurturing dog hosts. Our small lapdog Coconut has boarded with them twice and comes home extremely well cared for and happy. Tatiana is a great communicator and regularly shared photos of Coconut while we were away. They are incredibly responsible and caring dog sitters!
Tatiana and Tony were great hosts for Bruiser over Thanksgiving weekend! They sent me daily photos and were communicative over text when I wanted to check in. Bruiser was completely worn out after his stay, which is always a good sign!
Tatiana and Tony are highly conscientious, nurturing dog lovers who carefully consider every aspect of the process - from the warm initial dog meeting, to understanding our dog's specific needs, to contacting us when our dog had an upset stomach and offering to take her to a vet. They offer unparalleled service and are genuinely lovely people.
My "girls" felt very comfortable with Tatiana, who clearly is a real dog-lover. She has a calm, gentle nature as does her dog, Augie. I felt confident that my dogs would be well looked after, and they were.
Tatiana was easy to contact, discuss my dog's needs and personality, and arrange a drop-off. Kizi was happy (and reluctant) to come home after having so much fun on her vacation.
Tatiana was super responsive and easy to work with. She also had a really nice way with Indy, who returned home safe and happy :) I wouldn't hesitate to have Indy stay with her again.
Thank you!!! Kai loves staying with you and I feel so comfortable with her in your care (even though I'm missing her like crazy). I appreciate the photo updates and your quick responses. I highly recommend Tatiana & Tony.
Our doggies had a wonderful stay with Tatiana and Tony...long walks and lots of attention. Thank you so much! Knowing that our pups were well cared for made our small vacation relaxing and fun.
As always, Tatiana took lovable and great care of our Stella! The best foster home ever!
Tatiana and Tony took great care of our beloved Stella. We couldn't have a better feeling about boarding her. During our trip, they kept us posted with pictures and updates. Their attentiveness and responsiveness is amazing. Also, our dog got very well along with their dog :)
I am new to LA and a fellow dog walker recommended Dog Vacay. Looking through the site, I was immediately drawn to Tatiana and Tony based on their recommendations, the fact they lived near by and their dog, Augie looked like a compatible fit for my pup. As I said, I'm new here but had a wedding to attend outside of town. I was extremely nervous as my dog has been boarding in the same facility since she was a puppy or with my son who has recently cared for her. So this would be very unfamiliar to my dog and she has already been dealing with a lot of new surroundings. Tatiana arranged a meeting with our dogs and immediately my dog sat next to her and seemed to like her. She is gentle and very comforting and seems quite knowledgeable about dogs and their behavior. I left feeling very positive. After I dropped my dog off, she took several pictures of my dog which I got via email and it was quite reassuring. We also texted a few times while I was away. My dog had a blast, came home super happy ( and tired!) and I would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone. Both Tatiana and Tony are kind and caring dog people and my pup got the best care. I had called a kennel initially and am so happy that she got to stay in a qualified caretakers home as opposed to a cold run in a kennel. Thanks so much Tatiana and Tony!!
Always a pleasure leaving our puppy with Tatiana & Tony. Quick & easy pick-up and drop-off and Sgt. Peppers came home happy and rested :)
Thank you for taking such great care of my puppy!!
Tatiana was great. She watched our Greyhound for two nights and we will definitely be using her again.
Tatiana & Tony were SO great! They were extremely knowledgeable about how to work with & help eith training a puppy, gentle & sweet, and kept us updated throughout the whole overnight visit. We felt completely comfortable leaving Sgt. Peppers with them and will definitely be booking again the next time we go out of town!
Tatiana is amazing. Very thorough and caring. She takes great care of BB and Mushu. Both visits she sent photos and made sure to give me a detailed follow up call describing our Dogs' stay. She works on behavior and the dogs have so much fun. They literally drag us into her front door when we drop them off. They are so excited.

I highly recommend Tatiana and her husband.
This is my dog's second time stay also longer than before. She seems to like their home and their playful dog. She loves to play and walk. They did good job to my dog.
Tatianna is responsive and caring.
Tatiana and Tony were awesome! They watched our 2 year old Golden Retriever for almost 2 weeks. Tatiana kept us informed and sent a lot of pictures Lua loved them and their dog Auggie! She had a great time with them!
Thanks for adding a day to the end of the reservation. it made life so much easier. Clay had an awesome time and we're both looking forward to the next trip. *woof*
As always Clay had an awesome time. thanks. :)
You guys are the best ever, and I'm glad we found you to sit for my little baby. Can't wait until the next time. *woof*
Tatiana, Tony and Auggie are the best. Clay loves to visit and play. They are always accommodating and helpful. Especially when my mother is the one to pick up the pup. :)
We are extremely pleased with the way Tatiana & Tony (did not get to meet Tony in person this time) took care of our dog Cherry. Tatiana sent Cherry's pictures every other day and we were able to see her spending good time with Tatiana & Tony's dog Auggie while we were out of country for two weeks. She also gave told us about Cherry's stay at her place and how she behaved well. This is our very first time to have Cherry board at Tatiana & Tony's place and we will be a return customer when Cherry needs boarding service next time. Thank you Tatiana & Tony!
Great hosts, as always!
Tatiana and Tony are always so wonderful and Max just loves spending time with Auggie~ :)
I can't begin to describe how wonderful it feels to know your dog is in such caring, thoughtful, loving hands from thousands of miles away. Before the big drop off, Lady and I met with Tatiana and Auggie. Tatiana put me at ease about everything from walks to play time to emergency protocol. Auggie has an amazing disposition and is welcoming with his dog buddies. Tatiana and Tony have set up an amazing atrium area full of comfy sleeping spots and access to an outdoor area for the dogs. While I was away, Tatiana sent photos of Lady livin it up on her dog vacay. Tatiana, Tony, and Auggie are my number one choice to watch Lady as they treated her like part of the family! Thank you thank you!
Tatiana took such great care of Boss! Boss loved hanging out with adorable Auggie! Thanks again!!
Tatiana and Tony are wonderful! My dog Penny, who can be quite shy, gets along so well with their little dog, and she always comes home happy and relaxed. I get photos of the 2 of them hanging out, playing, or enjoying a trip to the park or beach! I always try to have Penny stay with them when we go out of town, they are the best.
Our dog Piper absolutely loves staying with Tatiana, Tony & Auggie! They take such great care of Piper, and we don't have to worry about her at all while we are gone. I could not recommend Tatiana & Tony more. They are an excellent choice.
Another great stay at Tatiana & Tonys'..! Mel was a happy camper when I picked him up. Many thanks to Tatiana and Tony for taking such good care of Mel.
Annabelle always loves her stay with Tatiana + Tony. They love spending time w/her and Auggie.
Tatiana, Tony and Auggie are all amazing and a pleasure to deal with~ Love them and so does Max~
Tony & Tatiana were great...Annabelle stayed there for 4 nights and came home exhausted from all the stimulation and great doggy time with Auggie. Every day I got a great pic or two, and they were so easy to deal with. Can't wait to take her back there- or rather she can't wait.

Thank you again!
Tatiana and Tony were the best! They took great care of my dog for about 2 weeks. She came home happy, and has even been more social with other dogs after spending so much time with Auggie! I will absolutely bring her back :)
Otis had a great time again! Thanks guys :)
So glad we found Tatiana and Auggie! Otis loves his time with his new fur friend and we're thrilled we found a dog sitter who loves our boy as much as we do :)
Great accommodations for our dog Trevor! Thank you!
Thanks Tatiana for being available on such short notice! Mel is happy to spend time at your place as always...
Max had a great time and loved hanging with Auggie, Tatiana and Tony. THANK YOU!!! :) xo
Tatiana & Tony are wonderful, friendly hosts. They took care of our beagle and made sure he was a happy guy for the few days when we had to travel out of town. They have an excellent home for dogs to stay and a nice little back yard area for when it's time to go outside.
We left our furry family members in the care of Tatiana and Tony (and Augie Doggie) for the Thanksgiving holiday and we knew they were in good hands. We could relax and enjoy ourselves, knowing that they were being cared for. They are great hosts - so friendly and sweet with the dogs and very flexible with us about pick up and drop off. They were great! They even sent us photos of our doggies on a walk and resting at the house. Many thanks for giving us a safe place for our dogs to stay.

My wife was very nervous to leave our dog Cracker as we have always left her with family before. Tattiana was very professional and really knew how to put the dogs together and make sure they were not only safe but had a lot of fun. We would use her again with ease.
One more fun sleepover for Mel..!
Tatiana & Tony were the best find for my little Lexi! I got photos everyday and knew she was happy and being very well taken care of. I was referred to them by my friend and I am still thanking her for the wonderful find! I couldn't have asked for a better home away from home for my little girl. I know she can't wait to go visit them again! :)
Mel had another fun stay at Tatiana's!
Tatiana and her pup Auggie are the best ever. My little guy had such a great time hanging out over the weekend, and Tatiana was very responsive, sending pictures to my cell phone and email. I will definitely book with her again the next time. Clay was well cared for and loved upon. Three cheers for Tatiana and Auggie....Woof, Woof, Woof!!!
Tatiana & Tony, and Auggie were great hosts for my dog Mel for 6 days. I can tell Mel had lots of fun! Mel thanks you for a great time and is looking forward to his next play date!
We used Auggie's parents yesterday for daycare service and they were incredible! Tatiana sent various pics throughout the day of Princeton and even one of hm and Auggie sharing a bed! Princeton is a complete mommy's boy and Tatiana was incredibly sweet with my little boy! They are wonderful hosts!
My first DogVacay experience and an awesome one! Tatiana was very good with my dog - she sent me plenty of updates with pictures, answered all my questions, and followed everything I asked her to do. We just got home and he's so tired from his vacation - a sign of a good time! A+
Another great day with Tatiana and Auggie!! They were wonderful hosts. Everything went smoothly and well. Many thanks!!
The same as before, everything was great!
I would say that My experience with Tatiana and Tony could not have been better. You can tell they really care about the dogs. When I left them, they did not really pay much attention to me , since they were already playing with Auggie the resident canine. When I picked them up, they were not anxious to leave. To me this was a good sign.
I would never hesitate to recommend them. They were flexible with my pick up and drop off times.
Tatiana & Tony were wonderful hosts. I was only in Santa Monica for a few days before I had to board my dog, Orso, for five days and Tatiana graciously took her in on short notice.

They sent photos and updates of Orso everyday before I even had to ask and were very prompt in their responses. T&T have a great home for pets including an enclosed patio so that the dogs can be outdoors whenever they want.

Orso is a puppy and was still not perfectly trained so she destroyed a handful of things, including some of T&T's cherished possessions. Tatiana never mentioned any of this while I was on my trip, most likely so that I wouldn't be stressed on vacation, and when I came to pick Orso up, she was so incredibly understanding about all of it. There are things that I can't replace and I know I would have been devastated if I were in their shoes, so it meant a lot that they were so gracious and calm about the situation.

They're great dogsitters and I highly recommend them!
Our dogs seemed very comfortable with Tatiana and Tony and Auggie. They were extremely flexible and kind and sent pictures of the dogs napping. Tatiana and Tony have a lovely home and a lovely space for dogs. We will definitely use them again!!
They were so accommodating, friendly, helpful, and gave Maya a great home for a couple days, all you could ask for!
