Our girl was in great hands this holiday with Liethea. liethea made everything very easy as far as pick up and drop off, she even sent us some adorable pictures.
Liethea and DVC were all superb. Can only hope all DVC experiences are like this. Easy to use, great value and very convenient. Liethea even sent me few pix while away. Will use again! :) Thank you!
Amazing! So happy. We can't thank Liethea enough for taking excellent care of Zeus. Pick up and drop off was a breeze. We even received a sweet photo and text update while away on our weekend. Thanks to Liethea and Dogvacay for a fantastic first time experience.
Liethea was awesome! It was a super easy pick up and drop off and she kept in touch sending updates with pictures throughout the entire stay. We will definitely be using her again.
Liethea is lovely, and our dog, Caprice, a 7 year old "diva" female whippet had a nice sleep over! She lives very close to the beach in Venice, the only thing we would comment on is that her one room place is small, and wouldn't be suitable for larger medium size dogs. Also, she has a cat, and we didn't see that info on the profile and some dogs don't like cats... :-) But overall, we had a positive experience and will consider using her again!
Liethea is absolutely fantastic! Not only is she extremely accommodating to schedules, responsive, and reliable but my puppy Nux absolutely loves staying with her. As a rescue, Nux usually has terrible separation anxiety but as soon as I drop her off with Liethea she gets so excited that she forgets all about me! Liethea truly cares for your pet and I always know Nux is in the best of hands with her.
Liethea was wonderful! It was our first dogVacay experience and Rex was so happy and well taken care of! We are dropping him with her again this weekend! So happy to have found Liethea and DogVacay!
Liethea is gracious and accommodating and best of all Big Boy really feels comfortable. Lietheal's environment is clean and calm and right by the beach.
Liethea took graat care of our Auggie. She was patient with him adjusting to a new place and he came home very happy. :-)
Zoe was very happy spending time with Liethea - and I loved getting the photo updates!
Our basset hound, Watson, had a great stay with Lithea! We are extremely grateful that Lithea was gracious and accommodating when a glitch in our travel plans forced us to request an extra night's stay. That was a huge relief! We hope that Watson has a chance to stay with Lithea again in the future.
Liethea took extra care of our little dog while we were away! We look forward to her care again sometime.
Liethea takes great care of our dog, Dillon. We have total confidence when we leave him with her for short or long stays. He gets good walks and lots of affection, and often, the company of other little dogs. When we pick him up, he's happy and healthy. I love it that we get updates while we're away. We have left Dillon with Liethea many times and are grateful for her wonderful dog care.
Liethea was amazing! She sent daily photos of Mattie and was always accessible. Mattie had a blast as well and made herself right at home!
Liethea was great, took care to have my dog get along with others and seemed like she had a good walk ( we walked her after picking her up and she didn't need to do business for quite a while.
Enzo had a great time with Liethea and was more than a little sad to come back home! She really made things easy for drop off and pick up. We will be happy to have our boy stay with her any time.
She is still the best. The dogs fly out of the car to meet her for their vacation :)
Another great stay for Jet. This visit was a week long, and we're very comfortable with Liethea. Thank you!
Jet loved his second visit with Liethea. He looks like he didn't miss us at all but rather had a really good time. Thank you.
Leithia was wonderful. She took great care of balki and was super communicative.
I really appreciate that Jet had the chance to socialize with other dogs. Liethea seemed to understand my dog very well. We're very glad to have found her. Thank you!
Duchess found her 2nd mom :)
another great visit!! Thank you so much for taking such great care of Kai!!
Liethea, was incredible. We left our little pup with her for the weekend and had a mix up with our ride home and got back several hours later than originally expected. She handled it with such grace and understanding, keeping our dog until we could come pick him up. Liethea also sent us videos and pics all weekend so we could keep up with how our pup was doing. Seeing him play and get a long with her other dogs was so reassuring that he was in good hands. We will definitely be using Liethea again. SO AWESOME!
Liethea's fabulous! My doggy thinks so, too!
Wanted to say thank you to Lithea for taking such good care of Duchess (mini schnauzer) I know our dog had so much fun with her trip to the beach, we love the photos you sent. Hubby said our baby was crying in the car when they were leaving :( -- until her next visit, I'm sure she misses u already
Awesome as usual. Flexible, reliable. I get such cute pics of the dogs while in her care. The BEST.
A pleasure as always! I highly recommend Liethea. Kai comes home happy and exhausted from all of the fun. Thank you.
i have left my dog with liethea over and over again. i'm pretty sure he loves her almost as much, if not more than me. she always sends videos and photos of owen playing with other dogs or going to the beach or park...i think he has a better life than me at this point! i dont trust many people with owen but i 100% trust liethea!
This was a last minute booking I needed for Zuma...Liethea was very responsive and accomodating...she's watched Zuma before so I always know she's in good hands. I get text/photo updates throughout her stay which makes it easier for me to be away. :)
Second time Liethea has watched my little Zuma and I have to say Liethea is the best. She was so flexible and accommodating to my schedule, sent me constant updates on how she was doing, and a sign that Zuma had a fun weekend is when she is zonked on Monday and she's been napping all day today. :)
We don't know what we'd do without liethia! Trevor loves staying with her when we travel!
Five Stars every time!
As usual, Liethea was fabulous with our dog, Cam! I wouldn't leave him anywhere else. She's figured out all his quirks and he loves staying with her. Thanks for being absolutely amazing all the time!
My little Zuma had a blast with Liethea and the rest of her furry friends!

This was the first time Liethea watched Zuma and my second time using DogVacay over all. She was very responsive when trying to set up the reservation and was accommodating in terms of a meet and greet and setting up drop off/pick up times. Once I met her, I felt that Zuma would be in good hands...and she was! I loved the frequent updates over the weekend and when I got Zuma back, she slept for an entire day, which is just a sign that she had a ton of fun. :)
Amazing as always! She takes such great care of all the pups! I can leave the country and never worry because I know Bella is well loved while I'm away! It was a heat wave this week so Liethea made sure pups were bathed to stay cool and had plenty of fans! She is so fantastic!!
This is long overdue but Liethea took great care of Alfie while we were gone for the night. Thank you!
Liethea was great! She cared for our dogs super well - taking them on walks, providing a photo every day, and even got one of them to walk up stairs (he's terrified of them!). She even took it in stride when our airplane was delayed and we were late to pick up our dogs. She's a lovely and flexible dog host, and we look forward to having Seni and Hoji stay with her in the future.
Liethea is a God send! Leaving my dog when I travel is the hardest thing for me. I have so much comfort leaving her in the loving care of Liethea. The pics and updates get me through. Thank you :)
Liethea was wonderful! She kept me updated on Kai and went above and beyond to give my puppy a comfortable stay filled with love and fun. It was my first time leaving my puppy so it was harder for me than my dog. That said, I had a wonderful trip knowing that she was looked after by Liethea. I've already booked her for my next trip. I highly recommend her!!
Liethea is awesome... when i pick up the dogs, they are always so well adjusted and happy as if i never even left. highly recommend!!! she is GREAT. thanks
Amazing as always! Liethea sends daily updates with photos which is so great! It's nice to be out of town and know Bella is in such great care and having fun!
Liethea is always fantastic with our dog, Campbell. She really goes above and beyond taking care of him, including oatmeal baths for dry skin and special treats / dinners when Cam doesn't want to eat his food. Cam also has such a great time at her house. I can't imagine leaving him with anyone else. Thank you so much again! You give us so much comfort when we leave town!
This was our first time using dog vacay and having Liethea watch Crosby. She was great, everything went perfect. Liethea was very flexible with drop off and pick-up times and met us out front to make everything very easy. We will absolutely have Liethea look after Crosby again.
I think our little dog has spent more time with Liethea this summer than with us! And, he couldn't be more thrilled. Always the best experience.
Always the best!
Liethea was a perfect host for our dog during our two week vacation abroad! During his DogVacay, Ramsay visited the beach and got to hang out with other dogs, all under the care of Liethea! It's apparent how much she loves and cares for dogs and this showed in how happy and healthy our pup was when he came home. We will certainly use Liethea again for the future.
Always goes off without a hitch and our dog comes home happy! Thank you!
liethea has watched owen over a dozen times and i think he loves staying with her almost as much as he does being home with me. i cant begin to tell you how thankful i am to have such a caring and wonderful person to care for my dog when i travel.
Lola loves Liethea and so do I! She is great and I was so delighted to hear that my shy little Lola came right out of her shell and made herself right at home with Liethea! Such a good feeling when you are traveling to know your pup is in such great hands!
Thanks again!! :)
Five stars again! We couldn't be happier. Thanks for taking such good care of our little dog!
Always the best! I think our dog may like Liethia better ;)
Another 5 star experience! My pup gets so excited to stay with Lithea and I know he is in good hands with her. Too bad we are moving to O.C. and I just hope we find someone just like her.
As always, the best! Thanks!
This is the 3rd time Lithea has taken care of my pup and I am very satisfied with her services and most of all her flexibility since this was a last minute booking. She is simply awesome!
If I could, I would give Liethea 1000 stars! We went away for a week and not for one moment was I worried about our fur baby. Liethea sent us pictures and notes every day, I think our pup had more fun on vaycay with her than we did on ours!

I will now and always use Liethea for my pup :)
Another amazing stay for my puppy!
Liethea is Suzy's favorite! And mine too! She always sends me picture updates to show me how Suzy is doing. Liethea is reliable and Suzy always comes home happy :)
she is great! i picked up two happy, tired little pups : )
Couldn't be happier with Liethea! Bella stayed 9 nights while we were out of the country and Liethea took wonderful care of her! We received updates and photos via email since we were without mobile phones. Bella came home happy and all tuckered out from all her activity. We'd definitely recommend Liethea to anyone looking for a fantastic dog sitter!
I was nervous at first, because my doggy has never stayed away from us without being with family. Liethea reassured me by sending me a picture update and let me know that my pup was settling in nicely. ( He was happily playing with a toy.) She was quick to respond to me, and by the time I picked up my pooch, he was giving Liethea big hugs goodbye! He was happy and the process was simple and worry-free! I highly recommend Liethea and will be using her again soon!
Great experience. Lithea sent me pictures of beach walks and cuddles while i was away. The dogs seemed happy and well adjusted when i picked them up! And they both looked extra fit! I would definitely recommend Lithea.
Our dog loves Liethea. She is a great person and always flexible with our schedule.
excellent care and dogs seemed very happy as well! I thought i did this after trip last July. sorry if i forgot.
I cannot say enough about Liethea...other than I’ll continue to use her and her terrific services :)
I contacted Liethea a couple weeks ago and we promptly setup this stay. My pup was picked up promptly on the morning of the day I left and he stayed with her until the day after I returned. I really honestly have to say that I've never had a better dogsitter than I have with Liethea and I hope to be a repeat customer for a long time.
I cannot say enough good things about Liethea and the care she offers your pet. When I moved to LA I was terrified of the thought of having to leave Lola in a kennel. Thanks to and Liethea I can travel with ease knowing my pup is AOK! Liethea sends daily texts with pics which is such a nice morning surprise. She is very quick to respond and super accommodating. I'll definitely continue to use Liethea! :)
She went above and beyond to take care of my dog. It was a hectic day and she's just what I needed.
Another awesome stay! Had to dodge out of town and was happy / pleased to know that Brodie was staying in such an awesome little spot.
Another prefect vacay for Lola with the perfect host! Thanks again Liethea! See u next weekend
Liethea is awesome! We are fairly new to the area and have been trying to find a good place to board our 8 yr old Chihuahua. Bella is pretty shy and has only been watched by family before so this was her first experience away. Liethea was so reassuring to us, great with sending updates and Bella came home just happy as ever! We just booked another stay in March! This is an amazing service! Thank you Liethea and DogVacay!
I love having Liethea watch my sweet 6 year old Cavalier King Charles while I am away. I get daily updates, texts, pictures and Maple looks so incredibly happy! She even bathes her before I pick her up!

I have complete peace of mind when I am away that Liethea treats my dog like one of her own and spends so much time loving, cuddling and walking my dog. WAY better than a kennel or boarding facility for dogs - more personal attention, more cozy home feel, true love and attention, and just a few cute small friendly dogs for my Maple to play with every time she stays there.

Highly recommended!
Liethea was just great! She sent a ton of pictures and updates and Cooper clearly felt right at home with her. He moved out of sleeping in his crate and in her bed within just a couple days--we had never boarded him with anyone except family before and we won't hesitate to leave him again. She was also very flexible on drop off and pick up time as we had a late flight in on Sunday night.
Always the best!
This is my second review of Lithea after picking up my little Mochi for an extended stay. I must say that I am very pleased to have found Lithea. She took care of my little pup as if he was her own. When I picked him up, he looked healthy, well rested, and happy! She even gave him baths which is more than I could have expected. Her updates with pics were awesome! I loved seeing how he was doing while I was away which really put me at ease. I will definitely use Lithea's services again in the future.
I just moved to the Los Angeles area and was going to have to board my dog while I went away for New Years. I was quite worried about boarding him somewhere new after we had just moved (that seems like a lot of change for a dog)! I had never heard of Dog Vacay before but decided to give it a shot. I contacted Liethea who got back to me right away and was very prompt in all responses. While I was away, Liethea sent me pictures of my pup, Cam, and daily status updates. The first couple of days my dog was pretty nervous and wasn't eating much. Liethea noticed this and cooked him a home cooked meal to make sure he didn't go starving.

Liethea was absolutely incredible! Cam will definitely be staying again. Not only is the price extremely reasonable, but she cares for the pups as if they were her own. Cam is now home, clean as a whistle and well rested from his "vacation." Thank you so much, Liethea!
I was very nervous about leaving my little fur ball with anyone else but Liethea really put me at ease. I had a meet and greet with her first and then a trial stay. She took my 5 month old French Bulldog puppy to the beach (his first time!) and he got to play with the other dogs that were also in her care. I am leaving for vacation in a couple of weeks so now I am confident that he will be in good hands while I am away. I look forward to having my puppy stay with her again.
Leithea was really great with my pup! She was very easy to get in touch with and extremely flexible when I had to extend my stay for a night at the last minute! I would highly recommend her and plan to use her again! Thanks Liethea!
Liethea is great. She takes great care of her dog guests!
Liethea was fantastic! Gave us updated photos of our little pup throughout the stay AND even gave her a bath! If I go out of town again, I'm definitely calling her up!
Great experience! Omar loves going to Lithea's. He gets lots of attention, exercise and love, all the things that make him happy!

Also, Lithea was very flexible and helpful when we had to extend our trip. She is a life-saver and I am truly grateful! (Thanks L.!!)
My dog usually has a panic attack look when I get him back from a vcation or dog sitting experience. But when I picked him up, he appeared completely content to stay or go. Clearly he was happy and comfortable in his stay. And I got some adorable photos from his time.
Liethea was simply perfect!! She is a true dog lover and I knew my pup was in safe and capable hands. Lola is looking forward to her next visit! Thanks Liethea :)
Liethea is amazing! She is very accommodating and great with our dog or anybody's dog.

We had to leave town for 4 days and she hosted our 7 month old puppy. Our puppy was in great hands. She came back happy.

Liethea gave us updates that included pictures. Liethea gives the dogs plenty of exercise.
Liethea is awesome! I got daily phone updates and the BEST pictures of my little Maple!
This is my second review of Liethea's superlative dog sitting services.

Out of all of the services that I've used since moving to Los Angeles, her's are the best. How come, you ask?

#1 - Prompt responses: she always gets back to me promptly with any request, even a scheduling request.

#2 - Quality of care: she provides the best possible attention to the dogs of anyone I've seen, including feeding, bathing, grooming, long 4+ mile walks, and more.

#3 - Location: She's located right here in Venice, CA, close to where I live. Her house is lovely with a lovely courtyard for the dogs to play in safely.

#4 - Communication: My favorite thing? Receiving a text every morning with a picture of the dog(s). I always felt like my dog was getting loved.

So - sign up knowing that your dog will receive the love and attention that it deserves.
Liethea has provided the best experience of any dog sitter that I've employed since moving to Los Angeles. In my case I had to use her services so that I could go on a last minute business trip.

She was able to take the dog last minute. Every day I awoke with the satisfaction of knowing that he was getting a nice long walk, socialization with other animals, and possibly a special visit to the office.

I will definitely be a repeat customer!
We love leaving our pup with Liethea! She takes great care of him, and he's always excited to see her. We're never worried about how he's doing while he's in her care. Thanks!!
Liethea was amazing. She took great care of Maize. Her home is a great place for a dog and she took my dog on long walks and made sure he was active and had other dogs to play with. She is also really nice and friendly and gave me frequent updates on my dog.

I highly recommend Liethea
Always the best! Thanks!
Liethea was awesome, per usual. She's really great about making it easy for me to drop off and pick up Lilah; I feel happy that Lilah gets to hang out with her at work and other dogs. When I got Lilah home, she was EXHAUSTED—which I love. Sign of a good time. :-)
Liethea was wonderful from my first inquiry through Dallas leaving her house. It was my first time using this service and also first time leaving Dallas so I was very nervous! But after my meet and greet with Liethea, I knew Dallas would be well taken care of while I was out of the state. I received a text and picture update each day she had Dallas that helped me enjoy my trip and feel more comfortable each day. Dallas made new friends with the other doggies she stayed with, received plenty of exercise and lots of love! Thank you Liethea for everything, I will definitely being using you again and also sending some of my clients your way!
Liethea was an amazing host for our 10 month old puppy!! She was friendly, accommodating and most of all a true dog lover! She took our puppy for long walks around the beach and made sure our Sofie's stay was enjoyable and as comfortable as home. Liethea sent daily picture messages of our pup playing and relaxing, which really put us at ease during my best friend's wedding weekend. She is someone you could definitely trust with your dog and I highly recommend her! She was always available by phone and very sweet. Choose Liethea and your dog will be in good hands :)
Punker jumped for joy when he saw Liethea again!
Great experience! We're looking forward to having Trevor (our dog) stay with Liethea in the future while we are out of town.
We LOVE Liethea! We called her very last minute and she made the whole process run smoothly and was so welcoming. We've never felt more confident leaving behind our little Abby. She sent us daily updates with photos to keep us at ease. She's the best!
Liethea is the best! She's accommodating, reliable, and our pup is always worn out after spending time with her and her pack. She does things like take our guy for a walk right before we pick him up and texts us updates with pictures which we love love love! We highly recommend Liethea!
Liethea accepted a last minute reservation and kept my fur-baby for an
entire month!! She was amazing!! She sent me constant updates on my pooch
was doing and adjusting. She took him to work most days and apparently he
became very popular at the office :) She also took him on lots of walks and
bicycle rides!! I will definitely use Liethea again and have recommended
her friends!!
Liethea was great. Will definitely use her again.
Liethea was awesome; I had a lot going on with moving and work—I felt flustered and was all over the place, but Liethea was calm, communicative, and very responsive. She was flexible when I needed to change schedules and took my last minute reservation. She was great with my dog and took her on several walks and to the dog park. Apparently, my dog had so much fun at the dog park (in the dirt) that she was covered by the end of the day. Liethea, god love her, gave my pooch a bath so that she would be clean when I picked her up. Was so above and beyond what I expected. I've already recommended Liethea to a couple friends. I'm looking forward to using her again and relieved to have someone I can count on to take good care of my dog. And her prices are very reasonable!
Very sweet, very responsible, and very accommodating!
