About Kellan

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! Dogs are in love with my energy and my big backyard! I grew up with four chow-chows, and often joke that they raised me, as my temperament is very similar to a dog's. We are kindred spirits!

I love outdoor time, so your dog can get plenty of exercise if that’s what you are looking for. I'm a running/hiking fanatic and would love to take your pet with me if they are down!

I am passionate about treating pets as family members and learning each one's personality with patience and kindness. I welcome detailed care instructions and/or special needs cases and take care to understand your pet's needs. I am happy to share couch/furniture space and treat your pet like a family member—I am probably more excited than the pup to have the company and you'll be sure to get lots of photo/video updates!

-Unfortunately I am not able to accept dog-aggressive pups since I typically take more than one dog.

-Drop-off & pick-up times are 8:00am-4pm

-Additional charge of $20/night if your pup is not potty trained :/ (I will do my best to help in the training process!)

I truly appreciate the opportunity to talk with you about taking care of your companion and look forward to every opportunity to welcome animals into my life!

Kellan and Meggan are animal-lovers, born and raised. Meggan grew up on a farm with a variety of pups and barnyard animals, and Kellan has had family dogs from the start. Their Hollywood garden apartment features a secure backyard space and a fetch-friendly common area, and they enjoy taking their doggy guests on neighborhood jaunts and jogs. Since they don’t currently have a pet of their own, your pup…or kitty!...will enjoy extra special attention and snuggles.

Kellan was amazing! I have a pup with a lot of stranger anxiety who was happily napping on Kellan's lap within a few hours of meeting him. I wouldn't have believed it had I not seen the pictures myself. He was super easy to work with and made my time away from my dog completely stress-free. Best of all, I came home to a TIRED puppy. I would absolutely recommend him.

I'm new to the city, needed a last minute dog sitter, and figured I'd give Dog Vacay a try. Kellan was very quick to respond to my e-mails and answered all of the many questions I had. I was very nervous leaving Bryn with someone I had never met, but Kellan took excellent care of her and sent pictures and videos of Bryn having a great time in his care. Kellan has a very large yard and assured me that he never leaves the dogs in his care unsupervised outside. He was watching another dog the same weekend which was great and provided Bryn with a playmate. I won't hesitate to book with him again.

Kellan was WONDERFUL. He has a huge fenced in back yard and really does love dogs. He sent us lots of pictures to keep us informed of how the dogs were doing, and they clearly had a great time with him. We would recommend him to any friends or family and would absolutely leave our pups with him again. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Kellan was awesome! He would send updates and photos of my dog Bella and she always had a huge smile on her face!
When he dropped her off, it was quite touching, because you could tell she had become completely attached to him by the way she looked up to him and snuggled up to him when they said their goodbye's. She stood there and actually watched him walk all the way to his car! She was even a bit sad afterwards.
I know Bella will look forward to the next time. Thank you Kellan

Perfect hosts! Our pups had a blast :)
Meggan is a sweet, happy, cheerful hostess who truly has a love for dogs. My Bella took to her immediately. No hesitation. It was a love fest from the get go! Seeing Bella's reaction to Meggan, you would think they were friends that go way back!

Both Meggan and Kellan are very flexible. Kellan picked Bella up from our house when we realized it was going to be impossible for us to drop Bella off at their's.

They had a standard size poodle staying with them and apparantly it was one big happy family!

It was the Fourth of July weekend and Meggan texted me the day before, to tell me that she and Kellan were going to bring the dogs in on the Fourth and stay home with them; they didn't want the dogs to be frightened by all the fireworks.

It made me feel good that I could trust Meggan and Kellan to treat my pet as if it was their own.

The only worry I had was that my Bella was having such a good time with them that she was not going to want to come home to me!

Thank you Meggan and Kellan!

Kellan and Meggan are the best, I couldn't be happier with my experience! They are super easy to deal with and it's obvious they are true animal lovers. Jupiter loved them right away - I don't think he was ready to come home. During my trip they kept me updated on how he was doing and sent lots of photos. I will be using them in the future and highly recommend them!

Thanks Guys for taking such good care of Margot. She had a great time!
Kellan and his girlfriend were super awesome. It was my first time leaving Banjo with strangers and he had a blast :)
They are real dog lovers who really connect with animals. Sent really adorable photos throughout the day and were very easy to communicate with. Banjo has a new set of friends!
