My name is Theresa and I live with Brad and our beautiful 7.5 year old Greyhound "Vasilka" in warm & sunny Santa Monica, California, which is a very popular place to have a dog! I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College; currently a Certified Professional Dog Trainer. My partner Brad is an Apprentice Trainer who assists with the day to day events, giving me the full support needed to care for your furbies.
We offer Dog/Puppy Training ($75.00/day) Mobile Daycare, Reverse Board and Train, Reverse Pet Sitting, Walks, Visits, bathing, and transportation. If you'd like boarding at the Doga Bungalow for Dogs, please contact us for more details.
Our Vacay program is specifically designed for pups like yours! We lead a very active lifestyle and love to be outdoors. Santa Monica is a very dog friendly neighborhood and we will take your pup everywhere that he/she is allowed.
Our daily schedule is flexible, and we typically work from home so your pup will have lots of attention. We offer 24/7 supervision, and your pup will be with one of us at all times. During a typical stay your dog will enjoy lots of walks and exercise in Santa Monica, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, and Westwood communities. Your pup may even be lucky enough to experience a hike or trip to a park once or twice a week (post bath/grooming not included and must be requested ahead of time).
We love well behaved, easy mannered small and medium dogs, however, we can also be very accommodating to puppies, and adult dogs that are larger and who may have more energy or need structured training. The best solution we have for your puppy or young adult dog that needs structured training, is our Reverse Board and Train Program! Let us know if you need to take advantage of our Reverse Board and Train option and we'd be happy to help you with this!
We have one 7.5 year old Adult Greyhound who is super chill and hibernates all day long, if you let her! We adopted her from Hemopet Hospital in Garden Grove in 2013. She is (CGC) Canine Good Citizen trained and recognized by the AKC (American Kennel Club) as a highly trained, well behaved citizen in the community. She fractured her right hind hock and is not a very active dog, although she behaves beautifully with dogs of all sizes and would love to hangout with your dog!
Since caring for dogs at a young age, we've both handled dogs who've needed oral medications, eye and ear drops, First Aid, and managed specific diets. I am also CPR and First Aid Certified. Any specifications you have will be met.
I grew up with a Golden Retriever, many domestic cats, fish, and a Black Labrador puppy, but I also have experience training many other breeds from Great Danes and Pit Bulls to Dachshunds, Samoyeds and Chihuahuas.
We understand and believe that dogs are Social Animals, and they need constant interaction to stay fit, mentally stimulated, and furthermore well balanced. Therefore, being around other dogs and humans is the best way for your dog to thrive as a family pet. As it is in your family, it will be in ours.
Don't hesitate to message me or Brad with any questions you may have, we are here for you and your dog (s).
1. Overnight Stay Rates run in 24 hour intervals. Any time spent over the allotted reservation stay is subject to a ($15.00 Late Fee) to be applied each additional hour, not to exceed full or half-day charge. *As a courtesy, we allow a 30 minute grace period, if your pup isn't picked up during the 24 hour period.
For example, if your pup was dropped off on Saturday at 9am and picked up on Sunday at 10pm, you will be assessed a $15.00 Late Fee for exceeding the 24 hour interval period. If you picked your pup up at 9:30pm on Sunday you will not be charged a late fee because the 30 minute grace period applies.
2. Plan on picking your pup up before 10pm unless otherwise discussed.
3. We can take booking up to a month in advance.
