About Satomi

26 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*What's New*
Auntie Satomi has a Facebook page. Please look me up with the gmail address.


I've been a dogs, cats, hamsters, and fish owner for 26 years and I used to work at PETCO as a groomer.

I used to travel for work often and took turn dog sitting with my co-workers. I started to work from home a couple of years ago but continued to sitting their dogs, and they started to call my place auntie Satomi's. They suggested to make this my side business so that I can help out other busy professionals and families.

I have a Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm job. I work from home except for Fridays unless I have meetings to attend. I have a large dog door so the dogs have a free access to the house and the yard while I'm away. I can keep the dog door closed or crate the dogs if you prefer as well.

My service includes text/email photos and videos, Facebook messages and posts, and FaceTime.

I prefer to watch puppies at my house but I can do check-ups and overnight stay depending on my schedule as well.

Cairu loved the the stay.. Great host..
My 2 7 month olds,a Poodle mix and a Maltese, love Satomi! I don't have to worry about their care and I highly recommend her services!
Satomi provided excellent service!! The environment was safe and comfortable for our Westies and she provided care to accommodate special needs. For example, she provided green beans, carrots and yogurt along with their dog food at meal times and she administered insulin shots to one of our Westies. Satomi gave us peace of mind as she continuously sent us pictures with updates throughout our trip. We recommend Satomi and look forward to having our dogs cared for by Satomi in the future. She was absolutely wonderful!!!
Great Experience !! Thanx for taking good care of Coco ! Highly recommend Satomi to everyone!
What an awesome experience!!!!! I am a doggie momma of 3 and had such piece of mind while I was on vacation. Satomi sent pics and kept me updated at all times. I will forever use her services.
Great experience. Will definitely repeat again.
I loved the pictures she sent of my dog while I was away. I am going to continue using her!
Satomi is wonderful, and my dogs just love staying there. I am so glad we found her and can leave town with peace of mind that our dogs are happy and well cared for.
Satomi is such a great Doggie Nanny! I never worry when I leave my girls there with her, and would recommend anyone to try it if they are curious. I am in communication with her everyday while I am away and am notified of anything out of the ordinary right away. My girls are comfortable there and love to go and play. This is one of the only places they will eat when I am gone :) She has the magic touch and I am so glad we found her!
I think the stay went great. Satomi is a sweet person to work with and my fur babies and I appreciate her. Will definitely use her services again if she'll have us.
Amazing dog-sitter! My pet is well taken care of and likes going back there.
My Parker enjoyed the week with Miss Satomi. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter. She has the perfect setup and I think her demeanor with the dogs is great.
Satomi has never let us down! Great host and highly recommended!
My dogs loved their stay with Satomi, and she loved them as well. It was our first time leaving them, and she made it so easy! We enjoyed the pictures, and she gave each one personal attention. One of my dogs needs eye drops and she made sure he got his medication daily. It made the whole trip worry-free regarding the dogs back home. We would most definitely love to have them stay with Auntie Satomi again! Thank you so much! : D
Satomi took great care of Ghost, he didn't want to come home! He had so much fun with her and the other guests in her house :) we'll definitely be back!
Satomi took great care of my boys! Satomi sent us pictures and updates everyday which made us feel very comfortable. Chester and Hank had a wonderful time with Satomi, they will definitely stay with her again in the future ! Thanks again Satomi for taking such good care of my babies !
Wonderful first time experience. Absolutely appreciated how Satomi put our minds at ease about Pepper's stay with her. She sent pictures every day and addressed any questions or concerns before the visit. Will definitely use her again.
Satomi responded very quickly and was able to accommodate me on short notice! Charlie seemed to love his time with her and the the other dogs with her!
Thank you so much for taking care of Olaf. We enjoyed lots of pictures that you sent during 12 days vacation.
Sophie, our Miniature Schnauzer, had an awesome stay with Satomi and her other canine friends. As a first time customer, Satomi did a wonderful job of communicating and sending regular updates on Sophie to help reassure us that all was well - much, much appreciated. Will not hesitate to use Satomi again for future boarding needs. Thanks Satomi!
Thank you for your loving care of our little Lucy. We were so grateful to receive photos of her playing and being well cared for while we were away. Our schedule is unpredictable at times, and we so appreciate you working with us.
Mega loves Satomi so much!
Satomi is the Best!
Satomi did a great job with our dog during her stay. We appreciated the updates and pictures. We will definitely use Satomi again.
Satomi sent lots of pictures to show us how our dog was doing. Pick-up and drop-off was quick and easy and her house is dog-proofed. She was awesome and very sweet! I will definitely use her again
We left our dog with Satomi and were worry free. She is very good with dogs and works easily with dog parents and is affordable. We highly recommend her.
Franklin had a great time with Satomi!
Satomi is Awesome! My dogs are very energetic(crazy) and Big over 80lbs, and she took care of them for 8 days with 0 problems. I will be using her in the future for sure. Once again Satomi you're great!
Absolutely wonderful !!! She couldn't be a better provider
Thank you for another great vacay! Mackey loves visiting and playing with pups at Aunt Satomi's!
Thank you for all the picture updates and accommodating Mackey on short notice, she always looks forward to vacay at Aunt Satomi's!
Satomi took very good care of my puppy Hank . She treated Hank like one of her own puppy .. She also worked on potty training him :)
Satomi also took a lot of pics and videos of Hank and texted me of how he was doing though the day. I am really grateful that I found her for Hank , I was really nervous about leaving Hank with anyone as he had his surgery done recently and also is very tiny but I feel so much at peace and comfortable
About leaving him with Satomi. She is wonderful ..thanks a lot Satomi!!!
Satomi is awesome. I always felt better knowing my dogs stayed with her.
Satomi was great caregiver! She took very good care of our doggie and kept us informed how she was doing multiple times a day! We will definitely return to her whenever we needed someone!
Satomi is wonderful, generous and kind...Abby loves her stays there!
I highly recommend Satomi. She was wonderful with our dog, Shiloh and we will use her again!
Varro loved his stay with Satomi. I work from home so he's used to having someone play with him and talk to him. I could tell when I picked him up that he already formed a bond with her. I will definitely use her again.
Satomi was friendly, accommodating, and loving with my puppy. She frequently texted pictures to let me know how my dog was doing. It was hard for me to leave my puppy, but I knew she was in good hands with Satomi! I will definitely be using her again.
Great dog sitter!
Satomi is a very good host, Equis had a very wonderful vacation with her when we were out of town. It is very comfortable to leave Equis with her, especially she shared lots of pictures of Equis everyday which makes us feel Equis is just with us anytime :)
It was a great experience! I will definitely leave my dog with her any other time. My little boy was so happy!! Thank you so much!!
First time my dog has stayed with someone besides family. Sabina did a good job sending pics and a video to calm my nerves. I would definitely use her again.
Satomi is a great host! She is highly recommended and highly sought after!
Satomi took care of Luke like he's one of the family. I highly recommend her for future guests!
Satomi was a great Host and Luke was taken care of while I was out of town!
Satomi is the best! My three dogs love her so much because she treats them like they are home. I have one needy senior dog that gets spoiled and loved so much he doesn't want to come home. I was in a drop off pickle this time and Satomi came to my house to get them. You can't get that kind of service anywhere. We all love her!
We feel comfortable and at ease when leaving King in Auntie Satomi's care. She provides a safe environment and you can feel her love of the pets in her care by the way she interacts with them and how the pets respond to her. We will definitely continue to use her dogcare service.
Highly recommended. I can go on my vacation knowing that my baby is well taken care of. She also sent multiple pictures of my puppy, which is a huge plus.
Starr always has a blast at Auntie Satomi's!
Outstanding. When Satomi listed she did grooming, I knew exactly where I wanted to take my dogs. Their coats still shine and they're soft. I have two dogs with double coats. One is a special needs elderly dog who requires extra care and attention. Definitely recommend.
Satomi took great care of our dog. She sent pictures and he always looked happy. When we picked him up he was healthy and happy.
Satomi was a great host! She was very good with Chopper, who can be a bit bossy. She'd send me pictures and videos every day. Chopper would love to stay with Satomi again.
Leaving the dogs with Satomi is like leaving them at home. But more fun!
Starr always enjoys staying at Satomi's!
Satomi was great. We love getting update pix of our babies! She got a super attitude!
All the positive reviews are on point! We recently moved to Texas and have never left our dog with anyone but family. I didn't know what to expect and was nervous about leaving my dog for the weekend with a stranger, as my dog does not typically take to others. Auntie Satomi makes you feel at ease with her calm demeanor and patience. You quickly feel the love between her and the dogs. She kept us informed with emails and pictures of our dog. We will definitely be using her dog care services again.
Starr loves her stays with Auntie Satomi! I'm running out of superlatives to say, and I can't praise enough the fantastic job Satomi does in sending updates, plus how happy Starr is when she goes to stay with Satomi. I've actually changed trips I've had to take if Satomi wasn't available.
She was wonderful! Her home is clean, she sent daily photos and videos while we were out of town , and she allowed us to pick up our furry babies at midnight when our flight landed. She is a sweetheart and she hasn't seen the last of our family :-)
Satomi was a perfect dog sitter! She sent us pictures and comments of our dog very often. We were able to travel for 3days without any worry about our dog. My dog looked very happy to stay with Satomi and other dogs. We obviously ask Satomi for next dog sitter when travelling. Thank you so much!
Starr is always happy to stay at Satomi's and I'm always glad to know that she is well cared for!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Aunt Satomi!! As always, we are so at ease when we travel and Marley gets to stay with you. We love the updates and pictures that you send us. It lets us know that you care about her too!!!! Thanks again!!
Satomi is great! We fully trust her with all of our dogs and they love her!
Satomi is so awesome that it is hard to find enough words to praise her. While in Mexico one of my boys got very slightly injured. She not only took great care of him but went the extra mile to get a hold of me (not easy in Mexico!). The boys were relaxed and happy with her - even my scared boy who is afraid of his shadow. I trust her with my boys. As a dog mom, that says it all.
Starr enjoys her stay's and I so appreciate knowing she is well cared for and having fun!
As always, Satomi was amazing! Mackey had so much fun for the week, this was our second stay with Satomi and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. I love getting the picture and video updates Satomi sends daily and Mackey loves the opportunity to play with the other pups! Thank you Satomi, you are a lifesaver!!!
We were very pleased with having Satomi take care of our dog, Payton! Satomi sent us photos and videos of Payton daily, and we could tell he was happy and well taken care of. We would love to work with Satomi again!
Satomi was wonderful! She reassured us of our dog's comfort during his stay by sending us daily pictures/videos. We could see that he was completely comfortable within the first 30 minutes of his stay. It was great that he also went to her calmly. Our dog has separation anxiety and knowing that he was at ease with her from the beginning made us feel completely worry-free while out of town.
Our pup's stay with Satomi was wonderful. We were worried bcoz we were leaving him for long time. But Satomi took care him very well. She kept sending pictures and videos so that we can see that he is doing well. He enjoyed playing with other dogs a lot.
The dogs always have a great time and I always have peace of mind.
A great host who I would recommend to anyone! Our dogs love her and she always sends us pictures showing us how well they are doing.
Our pup, Mackey, had an amazing time with Satomi! She was great and sent me videos and pictures of Mackey while she was on her vacay and having fun with the other dogs. I can't thank Satomi enough for fitting Mackey in as a last minute reservation. We already have another stay booked with her, Mackey cant wait to go back and play! Thank you Aunt Satomi!!
I've been leaving my fur babies with Satomi for a couple of years now and couldn't be happier. In fact, I've canceled trips if she wasn't available! She's the best!
We absolutely love the way Satomi took care of our dog. She was loving and kind, made sure that she was in constant contact with us, sent us pictures and videos of what our dog was doing - she is great! Thanks Satomi for making our vacation worry free!!!
With all the stress that comes with traveling for work, it's nice to know that there is something I never have to worry about. Starr loves her stay's at Satomi's and I know she is cared for and has fun.
We've never left with our furry kid that long time, and Satomi take good care of our puppy. She sent us video and photo twice a day, and reply very quick. We will definitely choose Satomi again!
I love leaving my Nala with Satomi. I have full confidence that Nala is eating, comfortable and loved, having fun with other dogs and is in a safe and supportive environment. In the pictures that Satomi sends me Nala is almost always smiling, so it makes me feel good and able to relax on my vacations. Also, Satomi is so flexible and awesome, when she was doing daycare for Nala she didn't mind watching her for 12+ hours when I had to work and would sometimes get out late and even did some last minute overnight stuff. She is so popular that I hope she is always available when we need her because I wouldn't even want to leave my furbaby with my own family, but sometimes when I am talking to my dog I refer to her as Auntie Satomi, just like her description said.
Satomi has taken care of Dozey several times and we are pleased with your taking care of him. She does a great job and would highly recommend her to others. Thanks
This was our first time using a dog service, everything went great. Satomi even came over beforehand to make sure the dogs knew her and were comfortable. I will definitely be using her services again.
Starr enjoys her stays!
Satomi was amazing once again! Was able to accommodate my pup on such short notice! Paris loves going to Satomi's to play and will be back soon :) I highly recommend her services!
I love DogVacay and 'Aunt Satomi'!! My Maggie seemed to have an awesome stay and I was at peace knowing she was in good hands. Satomi was very good at tending to Maggie's ears while she was there. And we loved the regular photos, videos and even a Facetime session w our puppy! Thanks so much!!
Had a long trip for work, and was a bit concerned since I was away for long, but she had a blast at Satomi's! The daily pics and videos were great, as it was nice to see my pup having so much fun.
Satomi is awesome! She took care of all of our babies at the last minute and she was great! She did everything to make us comfortable and our dogs loved her! We will definitely use her again! :)
Starr always enjoys her stay!
My fur baby's played until they could play no more. I don't like leaving them in a kennel when I am away, and I can't imagine trusting another pet nanny the way I do with Satomi. I don't worry or call a million times to check on them. Thank you for all you do Satomi!
I would recommend Satomi to anyone who loves their fur baby's! I needed this spot last minute and she did more than just accommodate my schedule. My dogs played so much that they slept for a day and a half after their visit!
Thank you Satomi!! She took great care of my babies and sent a bunch of pics of them enjoying their time with her. It was very comforting knowing that they in good hands.
Satomi was awesome!! I have had a bad experience leaving my "baby" at a boarding facility in the past so was extremely nervous leaving him with anyone that wasn't family. Satomi alleviated all of my fears and like previous reviewers I just loved and appreciated the videos and pictures that she took the time to send throughout the day, Jessie looked as relaxed as he does at home. I am so happy that I found someone that I can trust to leave him with. It truly was a Dog Vacay for him and I will definitely be using Satomi again! :)
Satomi was great, she sent pictures and videos of Dexter while we were out. It was awesome to get updates on him throughout the day. She was very flexible with pick up and drop off times. From now on anytime Dexter needs someone to care for him, he will be visiting Satomi.
Satomi is a great host and we've trusted her with our pups numerous times!
As always Satomi took excellent care of Barkley. She always sends plenty of pictures and keeps me updated. Flexible with my changing and schedule and Barkley is always sad to leave.
Another great stay. Dogs returned in the same awesome condition, and loved the easy communication and photos sent. Lots of love and other dogs to play with as well.
AWESOME SITTER! I was initially worried about leaving my puppy Paris for 17 days! This was my first time leaving her overnight with someone else.
Satomi met with us prior to the vacation dates, and I knew Paris would be in good hands and in a good home. She sends lots of photos and videos updates daily that let your mind at ease knowing your fur baby is okay! Paris always looked happy with plenty of new friends to play with! I was able to enjoy my vacation without a worry! When I came to pick Paris up she was so happy and looked like she had a great time. I was very pleased with Satomi's service and will definitely use her again! Thanks Satomi!
The dogs had a wonderful time as usual. The setting is great for my social dog who loves other dogs so much, and my senior loner dog who likes to keep to himself or hang with humans. Satomi caters to both of them like they are her own. I never have to worry about the care they receive and she even gives my senior dog his medicine.
Starr always enjoys her stay at Satomi's. It's so comforting to know she is well cared for when we're away.
Satomi is great, and Starr loves her visits!
Our vacations are better because the dogs are on a vacation of their own. Satomi provides top notch care for your fur babies and documents the fun along the way. My two dogs love her and I couldn't be happier!
She sent my boyfriend and I lots of pictures every time she came over to care for the puppies. Very polite & loved having our pooches in good hands!
I couldn't be happier with Satomi. She is so kind and was fantastic with Toby. I think Toby misses her...
Starr had a great time at Satomi's. It was great to get regular updates and pictures seeing Starr make new friends and enjoying her time.
Satomi does a wonderful job taking care of Dozey and we are very happy with her. Dozey feels at home at her place and we know he is in good hands with her.
Satomi was AWESOME! She accommodated Barkley last minute. He can be very anxious at times but enjoyed having pup friends around for the weekend. She truly cares about all the dogs in her care making it as much as home as possible. The backyard was great for Barkley to go and get some fresh air. She sent pictures and updates and was very flexible with my schedule. I will definitely be using her again and anytime I need a sitter.
This was our 2nd time using Satomi. Our lab, Charlie stayed with her for 3 nights this time. We enjoyed getting his picture updates and he looked to be having a great time. He was happy and heathy when we picked him up. We feel Charlie is in great hands with Satomi.
Satomi took awesome care of my 2 dogs while we were on vacation! We got plenty of pictures during there stay and know they were very comfortable. I would highly recommend Satomi!
This was an extra day tacked onto the end of a week's stay. Thank you, Satomi, for being kind, understanding, and flexible when travel plans didn't allow us to come get the girls on time.
Satomi is great. We had one little dog who is naturally fearful, and she went out of her way to make this little one (and us) comfortable. She posted frequent pics, and we could see by the end of the week that our dogs had found a great second home! We'll always use Satomi in the future.
Our lab, Charlie, had a great time and was well taken care of. Satomi did an excellent job, and was very accommodating. We will definitely use her again!
Satomi was really friendly. Gizmo had a great time with her. We will definitely book Satomi again when we head out for our honeymoon!
I got to try out Satomi's flexible policy and it's true! I needed overnight care in short notice and made a reservation and dropped my my dogs within two hours. I got great pictures and since was the dogs second time there, they seemed as relaxed as they do at home. The picture updates I got were great!
Satomi, is a pet person you can tell from the moment you walk into her home. Puddles was well cared for and from the numerous pictures she sent he was quite happy with his stay there. I will use her again, because I felt very secure with leaving my old guy with her.
I am so excited to find Satomi. She cared for my two dogs like they were part of the family. Both dogs had a great time!! Satomi's almost instant communication was great. When I contacted her to check on the dogs, I got immediate feedback. The picture updates were great. We couldn't wait to open our picture emails every day. It made us feel good knowing that while we were on vacation, so were the dogs.
Satomi was great and sent us lots of updates. When we got our little girl back she seemed so balanced and relaxed.
Our dog Parker was very well taken care of by Satomi. She didn't mind me calling to check on Parker and even put me on speaker phone. I can easily tell if Parker is ever stressed and she was one happy dog when we went to pick her up. I most definitely recommend her to anyone. Thank you, Satomi! :)
So I'm a little protective of my boys and Satomi makes me (and them) completely comfortable. I love her!
This is the second time we've used Dog vacay and Satomi. She's great! I don't worry at all when I'm out of town.
Satomi was great! Our vacation was derailed by flooding and Satomi couldn't get in touch with us nor vice versa. I felt entirely comfortable with her taking care of our furry sons!
