About Galia

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
IMPORTANT NOTE: I have moved to SF and can no longer do overnights. However, I'm on the East Bay regularly, and may still be available for daycare or walks. Feel free to be in touch for those, even though my calendar will show me as being unavailable.

I'm a work-from-home entrepreneur lawyer looking for some canine company. I adore dogs, and spend my extra time volunteering at the local animal shelter.

I recently had to say goodbye to my own very special dog, and would love to take care of yours and make sure they're well taken care of when you're working or out of town.

My own dog was epileptic and very old by the end, so I have many years of practice giving pills, shots, creams, taking temperatures, and all the rest. I also have experience taking care of elderly dogs and dogs with a variety of other illnesses. I know how difficult it can be to find someone you can trust to give meds and special care, so I'd love to pass along that service to your own special needs pup. Young and healthy dogs also very welcome, too, of course!

I require meet and greets for all first time reservations; please send some info about your dog and a meet and greet request before sending a reservation request.

Looking forward to meeting you and your special pup!

Galia was wonderful. Calm, loving, very thoughtful of us and, most importantly, of our dog. Bambi got some good R&R with her, and we were secure in knowing she was in such good hands.
Galia took great care of our dogs. She was frequently in contact and constantly sending pics. Definitely recommend her.
thank you, galia.
Galia was great! She sent pics of my furbaby having fun with the other 4 legged buddies that were also on vacay
Galia is a true gem! She showers my dogs with love and attention. She is diligent about following instructions re. their special needs. They adore her and get so excited when they realize we're turning onto her street.
Lexi had a fantastic stay with Galia! She loves to be out and about, and Galia took her lots of places. She also provided us with plenty of photos throughout her stay so we were at ease that Lexi was enjoying herself. Galia also has a great little yard that I am sure Lexi enjoyed playing in!

Galia was amazing and I felt so much better on my vacation knowing my pup Ruby was having a great time too. Galia was very flexible and an all around excellent host!
Galia is the best! My dog has a lot of separation anxiety and has hated other doggie day care. He really relaxes at Galia's house and feels at home, both during the day and for overnight stays. Thanks very much Galia for creating a haven for my dog :).

Galia is so sweet! Our dog, who is very cautious with new people, enjoyed the day and was immediately drawn to Galia. We will use Galia again.
This wa the most relaxedand happy our senior Shepard mix has ever been when boarded.She usually can't wait to leave and is exhausted when she gets home. Doggy Vacay beats commercial kennel boarding hands down, and Galia's home environment was especially easy for Princess to settle in. Thanks!

We were so lucky to find Galia. Tiki has pretty bad separation anxiety from being a rescue but he seemed to love hanging out with her. We got a bunch of pictures and videos of his stay and he came back so happy and tired. We used to leave him at doggy daycare from time to time but we'll definitely be leaving him with Galia from now on whenever possible.

For the second time, Galia took Sherlock in and she was an excellent host, going the extra mile to make him feel comfortable. We recommend her for anyone with eyes closed.
Galia is super nice and she definitely has her way with dogs.

Our dog is very shy, but Galia made him comfortable and he trusted on her care. She sent me updates and pictures and she took him out a few times.

We are extremely satisfied with Galia and looking forward to have Sherlock to be hosted with her again :)

Galia absolutely adores dogs, which is what you want in a petsitter! She always goes to great lengths to make sure my dog is happy. He is always thrilled to see Galia, which is clearly a good sign. Knowing my boy is happy and safe while I'm out of the country is invaluable. I love all the happy dog photos she sends me! Galia has also been incredibly patient and flexible regarding pick up and drop off, which is very helpful.

Galia was fantastic. She sent me lots of pictures and took really good care of my dogs. I'd had sketchy experiences with Dog Vacay sitters in the past, so was really important to have this stay go well. This experience exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Galia!

Galia is fantastic! A true dog person through and through, we trust Galia implicitly with our pup. She is super detailed oriented - took care of our guy's special needs to a T, super friendly, and sent us some awesome pictures that put us right at ease. Honestly, we're super picky dog crazy nut jobs and next time we're out of town, we won't even have to worry knowing Galia is taking great care of our pup.

My dog had a wonderful visit with Galia! She made sure he had plenty of fun, attention, and exercise. You can tell she's a true dog lover, which made me feel comfortable trusting her with my fur kid's safety and happiness. I'm also very grateful that Galia was so flexible and easygoing about scheduling and special instructions.

One of my dogs is currently zonked out because he had such a fun-filled day with Galia! During a half day daycare stay, they went for a walk, played fetch, snuggled on the couch, and had a fun outing to the dog park! Galia clearly adores dogs. She was very accommodating regarding drop off and pick up times, which was a huge help. Highly recommend.
