About Patrick & Renée

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**RETURNING CUSTOMERS: your rate will always remain the same as your first time booking with us -- just message us and we will send you a custom quote!** :)

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 were great! We immediately felt that Lou was going to have a blast on his vaycay with the two big dogs they have and you could tell they were both dog lovers. Lou spent two nights with them, and we received updates each day and they were very easy to reach. Will definitely book with them again!

Renee and Patrick were fantastic! They indulged my many "nervous dog mom" questions prior to the vacay, and took great care of my Cooper!! Cooper had a great time with their two dogs as well, and Renee and Patrick were flexible with pick up times when my flight was cancelled.
I can't wait to have them watch Coops again when I travel.

Patrick and Renee were great! We were out of the country with limited access to wifi, and they were very accommodating to our schedule and delay in response time. Even when Bentley's eczema started flaring up unexpectedly, they jumped on it and put coconut oil on it even though that wasn't an anticipated part of his stay. Bentley came home exhausted, he clearly had a great time!!

Patrick and Renee were awesome. They were responsive with communication during the booking process and during Buster's stay. From the photos they sent it looked like Buster was having a great mini-vacation from his daily routine and making new buddies with Renee and Patrick's dogs. Pickup and drop off were a breeze and it was a great experience. Would totally recommend them and look forward to using them again in the future.

Renee and Patrick were absolutely amazing! We left our two pups with them for about a week & right off the bat they gauged our pups different personalities and tended to each of their needs which was amazing. Our were acclimated to their place and their own two pups within minutes. I think they were almost sad to come home and leave their two new dog friends behind!
Renee and Patrick sent us texts/photos/videos everyday of them playing at the dog park to sleeping peacefully with their own pups. Always reassuring us they were having a great/comfortable experience.They made us feel completely at ease the entire time. I whole heatedly would recommend you use Renee and Patrick for all your puppy needs!

Patrick and Renee were amazing dog hosts! They were incredibly flexible and accommodating to our schedules and kept me updated on my pup throughout his stay. What I really appreciated was the time they took to make sure our pup was integrated to their environment and their family of two pups, rather than throwing him in and assuming he'd be fine. They asked lots of questions of his likes/dislikes and regularly took him on group dog park visits as well as walks. At the end of the trip, while I'd like to say my dog was happy to see me, I think he was much more upset to leave his new dog friends and Patrick and Renee! Overall, I'd HIGHLY recommend them to others and selfishly, hope they don't get too busy so that I can book them again in the future. :)

Renee and Patrick and their 2 adorable dogs were amazing hosts to my Charlie girl. They went above and beyond my expectations and not only watched/fed/walked her overnight, but took her to the dog park and played during her whole stay. When I picked her up she was tired out. It was great! I will totally go back to them again. Thanks guys!
