About Annie

Hi! I started doing dogvacay so that my best friend Ulysses could have doggie playtime at home. I do work during the day but have a fantastic dog walker who comes mid-day for an hour. I go out for a half hour walk in the am and then about an hour of walk or park/ball at night. On weekends we take longer trips to the park or to Pt Isabel to play ball and swim. I consider dogs as family and they are allowed on my furniture and in every room. My home is in the Berkeley Hills just blocks away from Tilden Park. I have a fenced in back yard and lots of room inside. I also have a cabin near Tahoe and can take guest dogs along for the fun of hiking and playing in the beautiful outdoors. It has been great meeting so many other wonderful dogs - we always have fun when guest dogs come to stay. Uly and I are always looking for new doggie friends!

Annie remains a host extraordinaire. We no sooner completed this visit as we booked a new one!
Another fantabulous stay with Annie and Uly! Annie even took Ginger on vacation to Tahoe. In the days after she came home I could almost hear her muttering, "At Annie and Uly's house I had TWO dogs to play with." "At Annie and Uly's house I got to go on hikes every day with the dog walker." "At Annie and Uly's house I got to run around in the mountains...." What can I say? Annie and Uly are just WAY MORE FUN than we are!

This is Ginger's...2nd? 3rd? stay with Annie and Uly and as far as she is concerned, it is a second home. We already have two more trips planned, and as long as Ginger gets to stay with Annie and Uly she's all, "Whatevs." she LOVES them and so do we!
Our second stay with Annie & Uly and perhaps the best review I can give is that we are IMMEDIATELY booking the next stay, for when we go on a family vacation!!
Annie and Uly (her dog) are THE BEST! My only complaint is that now that Ginger is home. I can just tell she's thinking, "Well, this is all fine, but over at Annie and Uly's house a dog walker came and took us out every single day. And over at Annie and Uly's house I got to go to Point Isabel all the time. And over at Annie and Uly's house, Annie threw the ball whenever I wanted and didn't tell me to go lie down. And over at Annie and Uly's house I had another dog to play with whenever I wanted....."

How can I compete?

Seriously, Annie is absolutely, 100% responsible and responsive. She sent pictures daily. She spent lots of time with the dogs and when she couldn't, her dog walker did. I not only wouldn't hesitate to recommend her, and in fact have already booked her again for the next time we're out of town. She is definitely the gold standard of Dog Vacay sitters.

This was my first time using DogVacay. I have a 5 year old Australian Cattle Dog, aka-Queensland Red Heeler~ named Tucker. Your service was recommended to me by a woman who also owns a ACD.

I was amazed at how fast it took to connect up with a dog sitting host~ best of all ~one who lived near by me. My first choice was Annie ~ being so close to my neighborhood was perfect! We had a 'meet & greet time' at Annie's home~where I & Tucker met Annie and Uly, her dog. Her house was totally dog friendly, very comfortable with many dog toys about. At the same time of being very clean and neat, there was plenty of room for dogs to roam about. She has a lovely patio & small garden for dogs to go out into. Annie lives right next to Tilden Park and also takes her dogs to Pt. Isabel, where Tucker & I go often. We met Annie & Uly again at a dog park a week later.

For the 5 days I was in L.A. ~ I so appreciated & comforted by the daily emails with photos of Tucker~ romping about with the other dogs~sleeping on a pillow and of his visit to Pt. Isabel. I am very happy with Annie's care of my little pal, Tucker. And certain that Tucker enjoyed being around his new doggie pals too. I have already referred DogVacay to several friends & plan to use this service again. Definitely will make a reservation with Annie again! Thank you Annie!! and thanks to DogVacay.....a great service!

Annie was awesome- very dependable and easy to work with. Raffi had a terrific time and got lots of exercise.
Annie and Uly were great hosts! Tofu had a lot of fun and was exhausted when he came home. Annie was very flexible and accommodated my schedule for drop off and pick up times.

My husband and I had decided to go to a "Faire", in Oakland, but , felt , since it wasn't planned far enough in advance, that we would not be able to go. I came across Annie's ad in "Dog vacay", and liked what I read, so I contacted her. I didn't , contact her, in expectation, that she could pet sit for our dog, the day of the faire, but, instead to set up a "Meet and Greet", for a meeting.

I e-mailed Annie, and explained the situation about the faire, but also let her know, that we don't usually, ask pet care providers to accommodate out last minute requests. When I received an e-mail, from her saying, she would watch our pooch, so we could go to the faire, I was , pleasantly surprised. We hadn't gone on an outing for a long time, and truly needed one.

Upon meeting, Annie, I found her to be very accommodating, and caring of our pet's needs. Her own pooch, "Ely", was very well cared for, friendly, and very much a "charmer" as well. My husband and I were quite smittened with "Ely".
"Ely" even gave up his bed, for our "li"guy" for the day, how sweet is that !!!!!

"Annie", is the kind of person, who is so easy to be around. She is just a lovely person, on the outside, and within. Her pet pictures she will send you , truly captivate, contentment.. Call on Annie, for your next outing..

Snickers had a great Vacay with Annie and Uly. He even got to go to Tahoe!!! Annie is a super host sending daily updates and taking great care of our big goofy pup.
Annie and Uly were fantastic hosts for us once again. We know our giant boy is in excellent hands with Annie and has a great playmate with Uly. Love the daily photo updates and how pooped and calm he is when he comes home again. Thanks Annie!
This is the second occasion that we've booked our Labradoodle with Annie. Both experiences were fantastic for our dog, Kate and for us. Annie was a wonderful host and we were totally at ease and confident leaving Kate with her.

Easy drop off and pick up in our neighbourhood. Highly recommended.

Annie is really great with people and canines and our girl Kai is safe and happy with her. It is so nice to be able to leave town and not only NOT WORRY about our dog, but get photos and reports of how happy she is. It is definitely a chance for her to have a doggy vacation while we are having a human one. Thank you Annie!

Annie is the best. Our dog Bob always comes back happy and exhausted from all the fun he had.
Annie is great! I'm a repeat customer. She takes great care of my boys, makes sure they get exercise, and that they feel comfortable in her house. Being sensitive hounds, they don't just take to anyone or any place, but I can tell they are right at home with Annie! Also, she takes great photos.

Annie is amazing! Our dog is happily exhausted from playing with her dog all weekend.
As always, we were extremely happy to leave our dog in Annie's care. He is always happy when we pick him up and loves interacting with the other dogs she looks after. Unfortunately, we are moving away from California, so we probably won't be bringing Tony to Annie's again in the near future. Hopefully, there is an equally wonderful DogVacay host in our new home state!

Fabulous in every way. Annie's a lovely host and Ravi fit in with her dog Yuli and her other dog guests brilliantly. They all hung out in the back yard and joyfully chased each other through the toy-filled house. I got heart-warming update pics from sunny dog walks that set my mind at ease. I felt lucky to find her!

Annie was wonderful - so happy to have a safe, fun place for Fresco! THANKS again.
Annie is really a great person, good with humans and dogs. She was communicative, cheerful, tuned-in to my dog's needs, and made me totally relaxed about our dog's care so that I could enjoy our vacation.
After being away from us, our dog is usually super needy, barky and refuses her first meal home...none of these things happened after staying with Annie, so we know she was in very good spirits and felt secure during our vacation.
I will be asking Annie to take care of Kai again, and I recommend her to others without any misgivings.
Thank you Annie!

Incredible! Our food-phobic little girl came back eating just like a normal dog. I don't know what magic Annie used, but it's awesome.
This was our second time leaving Tony with Annie and we couldn't be more happy. We know he is treated well and it's great that he can spend time with other dogs.
Annie was the perfect host! I got pictures daily and an update. She took Ella on walks and to the dog park and treated her as if she was her own! Thank you so much for making me feel so at peace like I was never really gone! Benjamin
Annie was a wonderful host for our dog, Tony. This was our first time using DogVacay and we are thoroughly happy with the experience. It was very easy to communicate with Annie before and after we dropped off our pup – and she sent lots of pictures during Tony's stay. Her home was comfortable and secure for our little dog, too. Her dog Uly and the other canine visitors were playful and happy and our Tony fit right in – she created a very healthy environment for dogs of all sizes. We were convinced even before we dropped off our dog that Annie was a thoughtful and reliable host, so we booked a second reservation with her before we even met. And we are happy to leave Tony with her again.

Annie was amazing. I had a great vacation knowing that my dog was in good hands!
Annie and Uli were great hosts. They took fantastic care of Sam and sent pictures of their awesome adventures regularly. Almost made us jealous!
Annie is great - feel lucky to have found her and I know Molly feels the same!
It was my first time boarding Mikey and I couldn't be happier. Annie and Uly took Mikey right into their lives and he was one happy pooch. He even came back washed and with his nails done!
The dogs were happy and healthy and obviously had a good time. That's the main thing! Annie was great and texted us photos of the dogs while we were away. That was a very nice extra. We recommend Annie highly.
Annie is great! She sent cute photos of my dogs every day, and they looked like they were having a lot of fun. I felt totally comfortable leaving my dogs with her and that's saying a lot because my husband calls me a helicopter dog parent.
Annie has an easy and peaceful energy that my boys really seemed to respond to, and her house is very nice, yet comfortable and dog friendly. Highly recommend!

Annie was a fantastic host for my dog. She sent us pix everyday and gave my dog an awesome time at the dog park and on walks. Annie was amazing and very accommodating. We look forward to using her again in the future
So glad we found Annie – not only does she live close which is nice but she is truly a dog lover and a wonderful caretaker providing lots of love and exercise for our GWP. Molly was so happy when we picked her up - loved the photos we received while away.

Annie is great. I can tell that she treats Molly like one of her own. Love the photos she shares and her responsiveness to our inquiries/updates. I hope to continue coming to her whenever available.
Annie was a wonderful host and took great care of our little pup! We appreciate having a neighborhood home to take our dog along with the photos sent throughout his stay. He had a great time and we will definitely send him again! Thanks so much.
We highly recommend Annie—our dog, Barney, had a GREAT stay! With Annie, we are comfortable leaving Barney behind while we take a vacation, because we know Barney is happy and having fun. Prior to making the reservation, we had a meet-and-greet with Annie and her dog, Uly. We could quickly tell that our dog would be well cared-for and loved while we were away, which eased any initial concerns we had about leaving our dog with a stranger. There are so many benefits to boarding with Annie. Here are some of the highlights that we observed: + Annie loves dogs--Guest dogs receive lots of love and attention. + Annie's dog, Uly, is friendly and provides good companionship to the guest dogs. + Fenced in backyard for the dogs to run around and play outside. + Daily walks or trips to the dog park for extra exercise. + Lots of inside space for indoor play as well as rest time. + Regular photo updates and messages so we didn’t worry while we were away. + We found the price to be very reasonable. Overall, we are so glad to have found Annie. We will definitely continue to have Barney stay with her while we're away!

Annie took GREAT care of our pup, Barney! He had a blast playing with Uly, and got plenty of attention and exercise! Will definitely use Annie again.
Annie took GREAT care of our little dog. Our pup slept for a whole day after a week with Annie, too much funn!!
Annie is totally flexible and chill and takes amazing care of Samson. I have complete faith in his safety and well being. He gets plenty of exercise and even more fun. Annie is also respectful of our dog rules that don't match hers.
Annie was great! Naya and Uly got along famously. Would definitely use her again the next time we leave town.
Four paws up!!

Annie is kind, reliable, experienced, and even affordable!

I cannot recommend Annie (and her pup Uly) enough. My somewhat timid and anxious dog now wags her tail at Annie's door and runs right in without even looking back at me!

She's the best dog sitter I've ever used, and my dog agrees fully.

Annie was great! The second time I brought my dog to her house, my dog happily ran up to her front door showing he remembered having a great time, & when I came to pick him up he was clearly very happy.
Polenta had a great time at Annie's.
