About Patrick & Renée

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
NOTE: We are happy to board two dogs at once if they come from the same household, just let us know.

Renee and I have been dog owners all our lives, so we know how to deal with dogs of all sizes and temperaments. All animals bring great joy to our lives but ESPECIALLY dogs and we love getting to hang out with different dogs. Our two dogs, Maggie and Penny, are best buds and always thrilled to make new friends as well.

Our home is a great place for dogs big or small that get along with other dogs. We enjoy taking our dogs to the park, beach and on hikes whenever we can, and are happy to bring your furry friend/s along. If your dog is older or more relaxed we will happily accommodate a more low-key stay. We live in Santa Monica about ten blocks from the beach where there is a great shaded walking trail that the dogs LOVE. We also frequent a dog park that is four blocks from our place. If your dog loves walks as much as ours do we can guarantee they will get some great long walks during their stay with us.

For overnight boarding during the week your dog will not be home for longer than 4-5 hours as one of us comes home at lunch to walk the dogs. We walk our dogs at minimum three times a day on top of two or three additional potty breaks. For weekend stays we are with the dogs most (if not all) day and night, and will take them either to the dog park, dog beach or hiking on top of taking them on regular walks throughout the day. Same applies for daytime boarding during the weekend. We are also happy to come take your dog/s for a walk during the weekend if you are away for the day and just want to be sure they got some exercise and attention.

As lifelong dog owners we definitely understand how stressful it can be to leave your baby with strangers. We are happy to provide regular updates, pictures, etc. so that you can rest assured they are in good hands. We are happy to accommodate any special needs your dog has as long as you let us know beforehand. We have experience with special diets, eye and ear drops and basic first aid.

It is important to us that your dog has the BEST DAY(s) EVER with us, Penny and Maggie! :)

Patrick is everything you hope for in a sitter. He is loving, playful, active and caring. His two dogs, Maggie and Penny, instantly befriend every dog that comes to visit. Expect lots of walks, hikes, playing, snuggling, and lots of photos and stories to comfort you while you are away.

Renee and Patrick have been watching my Rottweiler, Manuel, since he was about a year old. I was referred to them by a neighbor and I can't be happier to have found them. It's very reassuring to be able to leave for a weekend or vacation knowing that Manuel is in good hands. I'm sure any dog owner can relate that it is worrisome to leave behind your best friend that means so much with a stranger, but Renee and Patrick have become friends throughout the process and there is no one I'd rather leave my dog with. They are a very kind couple who truly love animals and I can tell how great of a time Manuel has with them by how excited he is to see them every time I drop him off at their place. I highly recommend Renee and Patrick as pet sitters. You will not regret choosing them as your caregivers while you are away!

Pat and Renee are great people and that is reflected in their pets and attention to them. I've spent a fair amount of time staying at their place as a guest and they have a great affection for their two pet retrievers. They're very cognizant about the diet, exercise, and boundaries for their pets and it makes it fun for me to visit and spend time with the dogs.

Patrick and Renee was awesome. They were so caring, kind and helpful. Their dogs are fun-loving easy-going dogs and my dog enjoyed their company.

I highly recommend them.,.but don't book with them! Just kidding...(I don't want all their slots filled..zoo I can keep bringing Rudy,)

Your dog will be in great hands when you do book them. :-)
Fantastic hosts! Our dog came back happy and tired. Would definitely recommend.
Cooper had another fantastic stay with Renee, Patrick, Maggie and Penny this month!
This was his 4th stay with them, and they are super hosts. They take great care of my lovely senior pup, and send updates and photos regularly. I can travel for business without worry, knowing my pet is being well taken care of. They are also very flexible with pick up/drop off times, and willing to work around my schedule. I can't recommend them more highly!!
