About Sarah

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***Not accepting new clients***

DogVacay has been a wonderful experience for my husband and me, as well as our senior rescue Pom, Autumn. Since losing our beloved Bitsy in 2014, all the doggies that have passed through our doors have brought us tremendous joy and filled a huge hole in our hearts. We've also met a lot of lovely people!

We have a new addition to the family. Junior is a 6-year-old wire-haired fox terrier who is thrilled with the rotation of happy new playmates Dog Vacay provides.

When you bring your baby to Autumn's pad, he or she will receive the same love and attention we bestow on our own sweet girl and boy. We both work from home in Hancock Park, in walking distance to a park and many shops, and Autumn, Junior and their visiting friends are the center of our existence. Our house is safe and spacious, with doggie steps to the bed and a giant basket of toys. And our fully secure, enclosed back yard is big, sunny and grassy.

Also important is our policy to host only small dogs. You can be assured that your petit pup will have playmates his or her own size. We can accommodate your vacation schedule, too, and have happily opened the doors for drop-offs and pick-ups from 5 a.m. to midnight.

Autumn's Pad is your dog's happy place, where he or she will have plenty of exercise, fun and love!

Buckie had a great time! Thanks again.
Sarah was a great host. She has a big fenced in yard where the dogs can run and sunbathe. What a great environment for the pups to play!
We interviewed several DogVacay hosts and knew very early in the meet n greet that Sarah was the perfect one for us! We saw her love and compassion for dogs as she showed us around her house and yard and introduced our dog Bebe to her dogs, all the while cradling one of her little guests in her arms.
Sarah sent us pictures, videos and answered all of our texts for the eight days we were on vacation. When we picked Bebe up, it was very obvious that she was really happy to see us but also she was very calm and not tramatized from her stay away from home.
We highly recommend Sarah and Bebe will definitely stay with her the next time we need a dog sitter. It's so nice to have that special someone you can take your dog to when you are going to be away!

Sarah was friendly, accommodating and hospitable. She is very responsive to messages. Noodle had a great time hanging out with other dogs.
Sarah and her husband are fabulous! Really wonderful hosts. Will definitely be using them again in the near future!
Great communication and sends daily pictures! Sarah always responds immediately if we have any questions as well which as peace of mind whenever you're traveling away from your boos!
Sarah and Tony are the absolute best! My dog always has a blast staying with them. Amazing people who will take great care of your pup while you're out of town :)
One of my dogs is a little anxious and Sarah did a wonderful job making him feel comfortable. She took great care of my pups!
My fur babies had a wonderful time as always!
Awesome.
Henry was happy - I got lots of videos and photos of Henry playing happily with other dogs. When I got him home he was pooped but with a wagging tail. Sarah was very accommodating to my schedule which was very helpful since my job requires that I be flexible. Will totally board again!

Very nice place & dog friendly. Large yard.
Sarah is great. My dog had a very good time there. I am glad she got a chance to play with other dogs. Great social experience for my dog.
My fur babies had a wonderful stay with Sarah! The updates and pictures are wonderful and I know that they are in good hands!
Sarah and her home are so inviting. Sedona feels right at home every time!
When I go on vacation, my dogs do too... at Sarah and Tony's. Sometimes I wonder who had the best experience.
Sarah and Tony's place is the perfect doggie vacation environment. They can go outside and play whenever they want. There is a small, carefully curated group of dogs to play with when they stay there, and there's lots of love.
Sarah is a great host. Very easy to deal with. My dogs don't go anywhere else.
My dogs get very excited when we drive to Sarah and Tony's house. They love it there.
Luke loves Sarah & Tony...they are amazing hosts and treat him as family! Thank you!!
Sarah was great with my parent's dog! She accommodated their early drop off schedule and sent pictures of Toby. Highly recommend!!
Good
Sarah, Tony, Autumn, and Junior made by fur babies Oliver and Enzo feel so welcome in their home. My little Enzo came out of his shell while staying at Autumn's Pad. Oliver and Enzo look forward to their next stay in a couple of weeks. I know they are in good hands while I am away!

Sarah watched after our two dogs while we were on a two week vacation, she is very responsive and sent multiple pictures and videos. She gave us updates on how they were doing and who they were playing with. We will definitely be re-booking with her in the future!

Amazing as always :)
Rudy has been going to Sarah for a year. It's his second home. I love the photo and video updates. He always has a blast
Sarah and Tony inspired confidence from the moment we met them and toured their home. We were nervous leaving our beloved puppy in the care of others for the first time, but we could see that their home was a safe, warm and loving environment for our little one. Really appreciated Sarah's photo and video updates, as well as their flexibility with our late flight pickup. They're fantastic!

LOVE HER. SO WONDERFUL!
Very nice first experience for us with Sarah. She took such good care of our dog that we are boarding again with her in a few weeks. Warmly recommended!!
I would highly recommend Sarah if you are looking for a warm and loving home environment for your dog while you are away. I entrusted Sarah with the care of my 8 month old puppy while my family went on a ten day vacation and I received updates and pictures throughout our vacation which put my mind at ease. Our puppy came home happy and apparently better socialized around other dogs as a result of her stay. We have no complaints. We will definitely use Sarah again!

I am so glad that we found Sarah to take care of Hudson for us! From the offset, at the meet and greet, she was great! Hudson had a great time which was evident from the videos and photos that Sarah sent to us during his stay - a nice touch that reassured us that he was doing well :) Thanks again!

Super responsive and friendly. Made us feel at ease when leaving our boos. Definitely will be booking again! Sent a ton of pictures which we loved.
Sarah is a truly caring and wonderful host! Buster has been exhausted since he spent a long weekend with her. Sarah made me feel comfortable leaving my little dude for the first time. She sent me daily updates and I know Buster was a part of the family while I was away. I've already booked again and will book with Sarah anytime I am going away!

Luke had so much fun with their other dogs that he is actually moping around our house missing them still 2 days later! Sarah and Tony are amazing and I know they treated Luke as if he was their own! They kept us updated daily and sent us pictures too. We will definitely be using them again!

Sarah is fantastic! Highly recommend her as someone that is genuinely loving and patient with dogs. Our dog gets sad everytime he leaves Sarah's house. She has an ideal home to host dogs consisting of a large backyard. She is also very good about sending you daily updates on your dog to assure you that your pup is in good hands and happy.

kayla adores Sarah. we bumped into her the day before dog vacay and Kayla was euphoric upon seeing her. And when Sarah left, Kayla cried . . . which she never does.
Fabulous as always!!
This is Penelope and Mama's third visit with Sarah and they are always sad to leave. They absolutely love Sarah, and so do I :)
Fabulous as always! Bisbee enjoys his stay!
Jake and Elwood love Sarah and Tony
My dogs had a great time
My dogs had a terrific time, as usual
My dogs love staying with Sarah!
What a great time little Bisbee had! He even got to ride in a sweet stroller. Can't wait to return to Autumn's Pad soon!
My little pup Buzz Lightyear has stayed with Sarah several times and every time I go to pick him up, he never wants to leave! He's a pretty timid guy when it comes to other dogs however always makes friends at Sarah's house and has the best time ever!

Sarah was great! She took very good care of my pup, even with a last-minute Cone of Shame/medication situation to deal with. I would definitely have my dog stay with her again. Thanks Sarah!
My dogs love staying with Aunt Sarah and Uncle Tony, their house is like a second home to them.
As always, the best! My pup is on meds at the moment and I forgot to pack the little cheese/pepperoni slices that we wrap around his pills. Sarah pitched in on that front without hesitation, and my dog stayed on schedule with his medication. Thank you, Sarah! You guys are amazing!

What a great experience for Ziggy to stay at Sarah's place. He had so much fun with the other dogs. Sarah even texted us pictures so we could see how happy he was, which helped us relax and enjoy our vacation. And, she was so accommodating when our plane got delayed and he had to stay an extra night at the last minute. Highly recommend Sarah!

My two dogs love staying with Sarah T, it's like a second home for them.
We love our weekends at Autumn's Pad! Bisbee is always full of energy and happiness in the days that follow his mini vacation. I'm sure he daydreams of his next fun visit!
Sarah is the best! Always reliable and Gatsby leaves exhausted and happy.
Sarah is great, the dogs love seeing her.
Sarah and Autumn are the best. I hate to leave such a great review and keep her a little secret but if you need someone to care for your furbaby like a second mom look no further.
I adopted Benny from the shelter about two weeks prior to dropping him off Sarah, and I was nervous about dropping him off and how he would do being apart from me from longer than a day. It was obvious from the daily video updates and photos that Sarah would send me that Benny was happy and in really good loving hands. He had such a great time sunbathing in their backyard and playing with other little dogs. Their spacious backyard and home were wonderful settings for Benny's first dog vacation. Thank you Sarah and Tony for creating such a wonderful home away from home for my Benny! I can't recommend them enough!!! Thank you!!!

Sarah is a fabulous dog sitter. She sent lovely photos and updates every day. I know that my pooch will receive the best care possible, so I rest easy while she's with Sarah. I couldn't ask for more!
Sarah is the best! So sweet and such a dog lover. Lilly was so happy to see her again. We feel super comfy and safe leaving our furry baby with her when we travel. She's Miracle Mile's best kept dog sitting secret!
We adore our pup's positive stays! Always a great experience at this warm, kind, and welcoming home.
Sarah gave Lucille a great pawvacation. She treated her as if she were her own pup. Definitely will ask for Sarah's help again! JB
I accidentally brought my two dogs to Sarah one day early. She was very gracious and took them in.Thanks!
My dogs were very happy with Sarah, they came back to me happy and healthy.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sarah. I have two VERY shy rescue dogs that are not great with new people. I had never left them with anyone before and I was very nervous, but Sarah was so wonderful that she made the whole process easy on everyone! My dogs were loved and cared for as well as I would have taken care of them and my mind was so at ease with daily updates and photos! Sarah worked with them until they felt more comfortable around her and they came home a little braver than when they left :)

Her yard is wonderful and little Autumn is a sweetheart! We will definitely be vacuum-ing at Sarah's again!!!!

THANK YOU!

We rescued Milou a couple weeks ago. He is a little shy but he instantly got along with Sarah and her husband. Milou enjoyed playing in the backyard with other dogs. Sarah took such good care of him. We could not be happier with Sarah and Toni, they are wonderful with dogs. Thanks!

Sarah and her husband Toni are very sweet and love dogs. Oliver was really well taking care of. He was able to play with other dogs in the beautiful backyard. We are very happy we find Sarah. We trust her and we are sure that Oliver will always have a good time with her.

Sarah was amazing!! My doggie loved her and her little dog.
Once again, Bisbee returned home looking happy and robust and full of sparkle. He always has a great time with Sarah, who could not be more accommodating and kind. Autumn is a sweetie, too. Good vibes all around!
As always, Sophie and Chloe loved staying with Sarah for the weekend!
Our two small dogs loved staying with Sarah!! We have a toy fox terrier, Sophie, and a mini dachshund, Chloe. Chloe tends to be a bit needy and doesn't usually like being left with strangers. We visited Sarah's house and met her and her husband. Both great people. They showed us and our dogs around and we could tell that our girls were already making themselves at home. Their pomeranian, Autumn, is the sweetest dog and Sophie and Chloe got along with her very well. We felt really comfortable leaving them there for four nights. They even let Sophie and Chloe sleep in the bed with them like they do at home. Sarah texted us pictures throughout the weekend of our dogs sun bathing in the backyard and playing. It was great peace of mind knowing that they were having a great time. They seemed so happy and in a good mood when we picked them up. We'll definitely be taking Sophie and Chloe back to them! Thanks Sarah!

Sarah and her husband are very sweet and caring, they took great care of my dog Stella. They have a great house with plenty of space for the dogs to run around and a back yard. I felt completely comfortable leaving my dog with them and I received photo updates while I was away. This was my first time using this service and I picked Sarah due to her great reviews. Will definitely return.
Thank you Sarah for offering a great service!

Brilliant experience.

This was my first time using Dogvacay and I was a little tentative about leaving Ziggy with a stranger, but I needn't have worried. Sarah laid my concerns to rest at the meet & greet, and it's obvious from the photos and the state of Ziggy when I picked her up, that Sarah did a great job of looking after her, feeding her and walking her. Not to mention a great backyard to play with the other dogs in.

Both Ziggy and I loved Sarah, and we'll definitely be using her again. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!

Sarah was an awesome temporary mom to Tango. She even sent pic updates while we were away. That was very comforting especially since it was my first time using this service. Thanks Sarah and DogVacay!
Sarah made us feel at ease living Pickles and Barley with her. Her dog Autumn was very sweet and her family was very welcoming. She sent us frequent updates and pictures and made sure they felt at home. Pickles and Barley are used to sleeping with us on the bed and I was worried what the arrangements would be at her house. Turns out many of the dog visitors sleep on the bed with them (which is where Pickles and Barley slept along with two other dogs!). They were so warm and seemed to treat them with such great care. We will definitely be visiting again!

Phoebe had a blast!!!!
Once again, Bisbee returned home from a stay with Sarah and Autumn happy and full of pep. We look forward to our next visit!
Phoebe is always so happy here !!!
The best! Once again, Bisbee loved his visit at Autumn's pad. And as it was over Halloween, I received a couple of cute photos of him in costume. Totally charming. He can't wait to go back!
I only can say that my dogs were really happy with Sarah. She is a sweet person that loves dogs and takes care of them with the same love she takes care of her own dog (Autumn).
Phoebe had an amazing time as always!!!
This is the second time Sarah T has watched Louie for me...and just like the first time, Louie had a blast. Sarah T and Autumn are great hostesses, and I love that Sarah T sends me text photos of Louie's time on his vacation. Two thumbs up!
Bisbee loved his stay at Autumn's Pad! It's a small dog fun place, relaxed and toy-filled, and Sarah couldn't be warmer or nicer. She is very flexible and friendly on arranging times and dates, and nicely accommodated our last-minute request. We will be returning, for sure!

My dog Phoebe had such a blast! It was her second time staying at Autumn's pad and she LOVED it! We'll be back soon!
Sarah T was so awesome! She had tons of small dogs for Gatsby to play with, and was very understanding about the needs of a small breed. Would love to book with here again!
Sarah is a lovely person! Very patient with my dogs and they were very happy!
Sarah and her husband were literally the best. She made sure to send daily pics of Jagger which meant a lot. I would love to use their services again, as I am on travel often. Thank you for opening your home to Jagger, I know you are missed!!
Sarah was so wonderful with my pup! Phoebe is usually very shy, but was so at ease at Sarah's and was loving frolicking with the other pup. Phoebe would have wanted to stay even longer! Sarah has an excellent back yard and awesome house. Very dog friendly. And she has a very sweet dog herself. Highly, highly recommended. I will 100% be returning again when Phoebe needs another dog vacay! :)

This worked out SO well! Sarah was so nice & helpful. My dog, Turtle had a lovely time and got a lot of attention. Will definitely use her again! Thanks so much!
We all know leaving our babies with someone new is a bit stressful. But Dexter apparently had an awesome time. After my friend picked him up from her Dexter whined on the way home because when he left Sarah he thought he was going on a walk with her instead of coming home. He whined all the way home and was a bit unhappy because he wasn't around any of his new puppy friends.

Sarah really took care of him!

I received daily updates and photos of Dexter's walks and him interacting with his new friends and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter. She has plenty of space at her home, a huge backyard and is a real dog lover. I could not have been happier with her and with DogVacay as this is the first time I used this service.

Thanks again Sarah!

Sarah and Autumn are excellent and are very accommodating. Benji, my corgi, loves to go to their house to play. Sarah takes great care of him and Autumn tolerates his rambunctious personality.
Sarah took great care of Seeley while I was away for two weeks. She sent daily photos and message updates on how he was doing. He was a very happy dog while I was away!
I cannot thank Sarah and her husband enough. I was in a bind and needed a last minute dog sitter for Charlie, who is very sensitive and has separation anxiety. He needs time to get use to new environments and people. However, on this occasion I didn't have that time. I was very nervous about leaving him on such a short notice. However, Sarah and Autumn made Charlie feel at home. She kept me updated, and when I heard Charlie was cuddling with Sarah and having fun with Autumn, I knew he was in the right place, because he doesn't like everyone. If Charlie says you're in, then you've passed the mark! She is kind, loving and safety conscious. Charlie enjoyed his walks and laying in the backyard under the sun. It so nice to be able to go away and not worry about your fur baby. Also, I appreciate Sarah's flexibility as my flight was late. Charlie will definitely return.

Our dogs love it at Sarah's house.
Boo is what you might call a "high maintenance" mini Yorkie and we had concerns about how he would go away from home but he had a great stay with Sarah! She updated us regularly with texts and photos which was very reassuring. She is a devoted carer and was very attentive to Boo's needs. We hope she will become Boo's regular sitter from now on. Having a house with a secure and enclosed back yard was an added bonus.

Sarah was great with my dogs. Her house is perfect for the dogs to get some exercise but also be able to lounge and relax. Sarah kept me informed the whole time and sent over cute pictures. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Thomas
Louie had a great time with Sarah. He got to spend time with his new friends, and really enjoyed being in a home rather than a kennel Sarah was great and provided texts and photos too, helping me stay updated on the latest in Louie's stay. I would definitely ask Sarah to watch Louie again!

Sarah was just amazing , this was the first time we have left Winston with anyone that he did not already know and he came back just as happy and relaxed as he would with a friend.
Nothing was a problem and Sarah kept us updated with how Winston was doing during his weeks stay. I couldn't recommend Sarah enough!

Sarah was great. She was very attentive and keep me updated through out the visit. They have a great back yard and my dog loved being over there. I'm confident in leaving both my dogs there next time. I'd recommend Sarah to anyone.
