About Meg

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*We will ONLY ever take one dog.

*You are welcome (and encouraged) to do a meet and greet with us so you can be certain your loved one is in good hands.

*We do charge for an extra day if you want a morning drop off but evening pick up because it is an extra day.

We would like to sit your fur-baby from time to time because we are animal lovers, but also so that our own has some friends. She's happiest when there's another on board. She loves all breeds but has an affinity for little dogs and plays very gently. Because we sit for fun, we only take one dog at a time so that they get a lot of personal love and attention.


Kansas is ours, a female Australian Shepherd, almost two, who LOVES all dog friends and is very submissive, playful and sweet. We live in the heart of Studio City, and our complex is as dog-friendly as they come. We have a fenced-in, private terrace that we open a crack so that our dog can go in and out freely, and it is very secure and safe. We also have a gated dog area on the first floor for playing frisbee and fetch. We live in a two-bedroom and every room is dog-friendly.

Jansen, Kansas and I are really big hikers and we like to go all over Griffith Park, Malibu, Fryman Canyon. We definitely strive to keep them exercised and to make it amenable to their size, age and health.

I work at a college nearby so I'm gone a few hours, several days a week. However, my husband is a freelance digital artist and works from home, so one of us will always be with your dog. We both grew up with dogs and I have Veterinarians and Pet Nutritionists in my family. We do regular obedience and agility training with our own dog and know how to maintain a fixed routine and how to make sure that we are consistent.

Your dog would get constant people and dog-love with us while they stay here and we will update you with daily pics while you're away.

Puck had an amazing weekend and became the best of buds with Kansas. We look forward to having Meg, Jansen and Kansas babysit again in the future!
Lucy had a wonderful time on her vacation with Meg and Jansen! She hiked everyday, and became best friends with their dog, Kansas. I got a ton of photo updates, too. Very happy I chose them, and look forward to using them again in the future.
Meg and Jansen are the best dog sitters that a person could ask for. They actually may take better care of our dog than we do...which is saying a lot cuz we spoil our girl. They are super accessible, live close, have allowed us to make last minute bookings, and their dog Kansas gets along smashingly with our Olive. She's always a little sad to come home with us after time with this lovely family. So glad we found them!

Meg was great, and if we still lived in the area we'd book our dog with her again!
Can't say enough good things about Meg and Jansen. They love our pups and the pups love them. What wonderful, caring people. Our dogs get spoiled rotten while vacationing with Meg and Jansen. They go on all kinds of adventures and come home tired and happy! Perfection!

Loved this couple! They were so patient with our dogs,took them on long walks which they loved, and sent us daily updates by text with attached photos! We met with them a couple weeks prior to their stay,and left feeling totally comfortable that our dogs would be well cared for-and they were! They have a wonderful set up with their apartment-a large,walled patio/terrace which allows the dogs to come in and out all day. I definitely plan to use them again!

I wish I had found Meg and Jansen sooner, they are absolutely wonderful. I was so worried to leave my dogs as I had never left them with anyone before. They completely set my mind at ease with daily updates. My little 3 pound chihuahua is very high maintenance and they treated him with nothing but kindness. He actually got really attached to them. Staying with them was like a vacation for my dogs. They got daily hikes, sun bathing on the patio, and nothing but love and attention. I will definitely be using them in the future now that I know I have someone I trust to take good care of my children. I love Meg and J!!!

Meg has made my first time using Dog Vacay Fantastic. She was very good at communicating with me, flexible with pick-up and drop off times & updated us with plenty of photos and videos. I would definitely use her again, she did a great job.
Meg was absolutely awesome! She was very easy and encouraging to coordinate a meet-n-greet before hosting the little ones. Then, when I actually went to drop them off, they were already familiar and excited, bouncing around. Meg was very flexible and accommodating with pick-up and drop-off times and she sent regular picture updates and video throughout the duration of their stay. She also bathed them when they got dirty and told me the progress on their eating and temperaments. Even when one of my dogs eyes was a little red, she did not hesitate to inform me and ask me if that was a common occurrence for him or something new. She took great care in washing his eye and it was as good as new the next day. Meg was excellent in communicating and updating me and made me feel very at ease the entire duration. The little ones were very happy and cared for. I will definitely be using Meg again.

Jaxx was very happy after his stay! Meg did a great job of caring for him and keeping me updated with pix & text. Jaxx is looking forward to his next stay!
Thanks for picking Somewhere up last minute from my house and getting him to yours safely!
It's hard for me to overstate how wonderful Meg and Jansen were with my dog Katie. They truly went above and beyond - taking her for hikes every day, giving her love and attention and generally treating her as though she were their own dog. Meg also sent me daily photos and accounts of their adventures. I'm deeply grateful to both of them and recommend them whole-heartedly. Dog-Vacayers listen up: you couldn't find a better place for your dog.

I can't say enough great things about Meg and Jansen! They took such great care of my pups, I was afraid they wouldn't want to come home! Meg sent me frequent updates and lots of pictures. The dogs got to go on several hikes and lots of walks over the weekend. They had a great time and were wonderfully cared for. Thank you Meg and Jansen!

Meg and Jansen were awesome host parents to my Rocky! They were very sweet when we first did the initial meet-n-greet and even gave Rocky some cool goodies, including some treats and a new water dish. I was very worried about leaving Rocky, as this was my first time going away without him. But my fears were eased when I saw how much they were caring for Rocky. Every day I got at least one picture text update, one day I even got a video! It was awesome. Thanks Meg and Jansen for taking great care of my baby!

Love,
Amber

Meg was AWESOME! I felt totally comfortable leaving my dog with her and I'll absolutely leave my dog with her in the future.

Leaving my dog with her was WAY better than kennels I've used in the past. It was a joy to receive texts and photos of my dog while I was away, so I knew she was cared for and loved the entire time I was gone.

I rate the whole experience both with Dogvacay AND meg as a 5!

My name is Luna, I'm a 13 month old min pin who vacationed with Meg and Jensen for two weeks! What an incredible two weeks it was -- Meg and Jensen spoiled me with attention, took me on a million walks, and let me sleep in their bed! I'm obviously going to recommend Meg & Jensen to all of my doggy friends :)

Note: Luna's parents can't recommend M&J too highly!

I think there is a love affair between Dusty and Meg and Jansen. Meg sent me frequent updates and photos and I knew Dusty was well taken care of and having fun. I would highly recommend them as pet parents and will definitely use them again and again and again!

Meg is a great host! She is efficient in terms of communication and scheduling and sends regular updates. I always feel Max is in capable and caring hands when I leave him there and will happily bring him back :)
Meg and Jensen were beyond amazing and so sweet to our dogs! Butters and Sugar immediately warmed up to them. Meg text me pics and updates everyday. She even bathed my pups and let them sleep in their bed with them! They were very happy and clean when I picked them up. I'm so happy that I found people I can trust with my babies! I wish I could give them more than 5 stars! Thanks again Meg and Jensen! :)

The most amazing people that are so caring and sweet. They took excellent care of our Benni. 10 walks a day and hikes. How cool is that? Pretty cool I must say. They sent picks daily and they let Benni sleep in the bed with them. Benni was very happy at their home. I give them 5 stars for awesomeness!

Meg was awesome! Ellie warmed up to her and Jensen right when she met them and I felt completely comfortable leaving her with them. They kept me updated with texts and pictures every day and even took Ellie to the beach for the first time! They are the sweetest people and I'm so glad I got the chance to meet them through this site. I would definitely recommend them to anyone :)

Pruntyo just returned from her week-long vacation with her new friends: Meg and Jansen. They were great substitute parents for her while I was away. I highly recommend them. :)

I wanted to leave Pruntyo with someone whose lifestyle and environment was similar to mine, so I searched for hosts who lived in an apartment / condo, who were home during the majority of the day, and who had an active lifestyle. My preference was that the hosts did not have any other dogs (or cats) either, in case the dogs didn't get along well. In addition, I felt safer leaving her with someone who knew pet CPR and was willing to administer medication, just in case. Upon reading Meg's profile, it was clear that she offered all that and then some.

Meg lives in Studio City on a tree-lined street in a nice and doggie-proof apartment with her boyfriend, Jensen, who works from home. Both of them are home the majority of the time, which is very reassuring - they probably spent more time with my dog than I do on an average day. :) They sent me photos daily and let me know how Pruntyo was doing. I felt that my dog was in great hands, in a safe and very caring environment.

Thank you Meg, thanks Jensen, we will be back soon. :)
