About Rosanna

I am an animator and artist who works on various projects from home most of the time! Most recently I worked on The Smurfs and am also getting ready for an exhibition of own art work.

I like to hike every day with my the outdoors and the space, beautiful trails and safety of Brisbane which is only ten minutes south of San Francisco!
I am a lifelong doggie lover!!!!!
My home, which I share with my equally dog loving husband, has a balcony and front patio where pups can sun themselves and hang out:)
My house is on the way to SFO from the city! REALLY close:)
Oh yes, I also paint dogs:)
And...I am a terrier specialist! ;)

If your dog is a puppy under a year and a half, I require a meet and greet :) Please let me know in advance of toilet training issues, illnesses or chewing behaviour as I would like to avoid surprises ;) I look forward to meeting you and your pups! Thanks!

At the risk of repeating myself, Rosanna's home is Kane's favorite home away from home, he can't wait to pop out of the car and settle in when we drive over to her house. He's always in such good hands, we don't know what we'd do without her!
As always, Brooklyn's stay with Rosanna was a blast (according to Brooklyn and how much she slept when she got home). Rosanna took her hiking and gave her a ton of love while we were out for a long weekend. It is so fun to get photo updates while we are away. We always know that Brooklyn is in good hands :)
WOW! We obviously read all of Rosanna's awesome reviews before we booked, so we assumed Brooklyn would be in good hands...but Rosanna exceeded all expectations.

Brooklyn is a pretty big girl, so we are always concerned about whether people will be ok with her size (and clumsiness). Rosanna was super sweet during our meet and greet and took the time to really see how Brooklyn would fit with the house and the rest of the pack. She was very understanding when Brooklyn made herself at home sniffing everything and dragging out all of the toys.

We were gone for a long weekend and Brooklyn got to go on so many hikes! We got daily photo updates and loved seeing our happy pup out on the trails. Needless to say, she was sad to have to come home to 'reality' and she slept for days.

Rosanna is very responsive and knows a lot about caring for your pups as if they were her own. We will definitely be back!
Rosanna and her husband were great dog sitters. Their own two dogs are gentle and sweet and took a quick liking to Snowy. They took Snowy on frequent walks/hikes and were so kind and accommodating. Snowy had an amazing vacay! Rosanna also sent us daily commentary and photos!
Again, Rosanna was AMAZING with our dog Abby. We were gone for 11 days and they took her out on walks, hikes, car rides, etc. They were very loving with her and accommodating. They sent me pics and text messages too letting us know she was fine.
We will definitely be using Rosanna again. Thank you!!
This is the second time Rosanna has watched my dog (Jasmyn) and I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs a dog sitter. I received frequent text and email updates with pictures of Rosanna taking my dog on many hikes and adventures (and even some swim time!!). Over the course of 4 days/nights, she never left Jasmyn alone and took her whereever they went. Their house is very clean with fenced outdoor areas for the dogs to roam and she also had flexible drop off and pick up times to work around my flight delays. Great experience, and highly recommended to others.

Thanks Rosanna!
This is the 2nd time that our dog, Sam, has stayed with Rosanna, and we were just as happy this time as we were the first! Rosanna and her two dogs, Reggie and Marnie, took great care of Sam, which was obvious from the pictures that Rosanna would send of their adventures while Sam stayed with her. From the moment we dropped Sam off to when we picked him up, we didn't worry at all, and could tell that he felt comfortable and at home. As is the case with any dog sitter, we could tell Sam had a great time because when he did come home, he was happy and tired. We would definitely recommend Rosanna, and look forward to our next anxiety-free vacation knowing that Sam has a great place to stay!
After this many days away, going on hikes and bonding with Rosanna's pups, I actually wondered if Kane was going to be willing to come home! He was, but at the same time, he clearly didn't want to leave Rosanna either. A clear mark of a wonderful and loving host. Obviously, I highly recommend her.
We actually thought we were going to bring our boy home this day but yet another medical problem cropped up and we literally had to reschedule his homecoming on the fly. I'm going to sound like a broken record but again, Rosanna was wonderful. She carried on with business just like he was scheduled to stay for more than a couple days, making sure he was getting all the medications and food he needed.
We had an ongoing medical situation and Rosanna was wonderful about working with us in an uncertain situation - we could rest easier knowing that he was in safe hands while we dealt with getting our family taking care of.
I don't think I can say enough about Kane's stay with Rosanna.

We've had to rely on her under unusual circumstances yet again but as we've come to learn, she's been wonderful about being flexible and I can't say enough about how much Kane loves her and her family. He always comes home happy and healthy.
Super flexible, great communication, reliable. Excellent dog handling skills and great environment. Would definitely use again.
Rosanna did a great job watching my dog. She was very responsive when I first contacted her and agreed to do a meet and greet. I stopped by her house with my pup to introduce ourselves and check out the place. It was very clean and a great set up where the dogs could go outside and sit on the deck or in the fenced in front area. Rosanna and her husband were very friendly, as were her two dogs. After meeting with them, I felt comfortable leaving my dog with them for a 5 day trip. Rosanna texted me pics of them out on walks when I was gone and was very accommodating with pick up and drop off times. Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend Rosanna for others looking for someone to watch their dogs. 5 stars!
We were in a bit of a bind with our newcomer rescue, and needed to entrust him to the care of someone who understood big dogs, would spend time with him, had companion dogs, and wouldn't be intimidated by his size or occasional bursts of energy.

Rosanna was the perfect match.

Humans aren't enough for our pup, he also craves canine companionship and Rosanna's two lovely dogs were available for co-lounging about or walks and hikes. It was clear that he was having a great time on his walks and hikes, enough to wear him out by the end of the day!

She was great about giving him his medications, adhering to his food and walk schedules. He was finally putting on some much needed weight and feeling a lot better when we came back for him.

She was also great about communication both during the reservation process and during his stay. We had a complicated set of scheduling but she was wonderful throughout, highly responsive and very understanding, we couldn't have asked for more.

She also sent pictures and notes every day so we never had to wonder how he was doing, we knew he was having a great vacation. We met with nearly a dozen possible sitters and hosts but came away from our meet and greet and his stay feeling like he'd made a good friend, not just become another number in someone's client list.

We're really glad that we found her.
Rosanna was a wonderful host for our yellow lab, Sam. We've had a tricky time finding a sitter/boarder that we really trust since moving to the Bay Area last year, but Rosanna really made us feel comfortable. She made it very clear that her goal was to meet our needs, by making sure Sam had a great stay. He was with her (and her own, nice dogs, Reggie and Marnie) for about a week, and over that time we got constant updates with photos of Sam around the house, on walks, etc. Over the course of the week we went from being anxious about Sam being with a new boarder, to being jealous and worrying that Sam wouldn't want to come home with us when we got back because he was having such a good time.

Will definitely be a repeat customer with Rosanna -- she understands how to be flexible to quell an owner's concerns, and that makes a world of difference when you're leaving your pup with someone else!
Rosanna is the best! She was highly attentive to our two Lakeland Terriers during their one-week stay, and sent picture updates to us several times a day. She even let our pups sleep in her bed with her, and kept them busy with hikes and dog park visits during the day. We felt very comfortable leaving them in her care. Her two dogs are very sweet as well and made our pups' experience all the more delightful, I'm sure! I would highly recommend Rosanna to anyone looking for a doggie vacay (sleep-away camp!)
Convenient, professional, & pleasant to work with--highly recommend. Will be my first choice for future pet care. Thanks, Rosanna!
Thanks again Rosanna and Aaron for taking such great care of Sawyer. When I drop him off and he runs upstairs I know he must feel very at home in your house. We feel so much more relaxed when we are out of town and he is in your hands.
Another absolutely fantastic stay with Rosanna! Frankie ran straight to her front door when I dropped her off, and was calm, happy, and well-loved when I picked her up. We received plenty of updates, and had a worry-free vacation. Thanks again, Rosanna!
Frankie's stay with Rosanna was absolutely wonderful! Rosanna was friendly and attentive, and has 2 dogs of her own so I knew that Frankie would be in good hands. We received daily updates and pictures, and when we picked her up, Frankie was more relaxed then she was after any stay with anyone else. We knew she had been exercised and loved, and we can't recommend Rosanna highly enough. Seriously, stop looking now, and send her a note. Your pup will thank you for it!
For the second leg of our Finland vacation, Rosanna and Aaron took (again) super care of Wilma! Upon our return, Wilma was relaxed and happy. She gets hyper when she is not getting enough exercise, so it was easy to tell she has been taken to plenty of walks and hikes. Thanks and we look forward to having Wilma stay with you in the future!
Rosanna and Aaron took wonderful care of Wilma AND were extremely accomodating in terms of last minute changes to our travel plans! It was easy to tell from the photos and the frequent updates that Wilma was having a great time and getting plenty of exercise and loving attention. Thank you so much and we look forward to future vacations knowing we have a reliable dog sitter nearby!
Rosanna and Aaron- thanks again for hosting Sawyer. He seems very happy and tired :) Also- thanks for the treats and gift cards. I will be sure to pass out to dog owners and spread the word.
As a first time pet owner, I was very confused with all the different options of where we can leave Ryder especially for a necessary overnight stay. I wanted to ensure that he stayed somewhere he will be taken care of and given the attention he deserves. When I did my search, DogVacay came up and when I put in my city, Brisbane, Rosanna's profile came up. After much deliberation with my boyfriend, I told him that I have a gut feeling that having Ryder stay in a home is better than kennels or hotel. The dates were available and we did a meet and greet and everything was smooth sailing from there. Rosanna, Aaron and their dogs Marnie and Reggie were all so good to Ryder! He enjoyed his stay. We received great pictures throughout the stay. I definitely recommend Rosanna to others looking for a wonderful person to take care of dogs as she is a warm and caring (and talented) person. Her home is very comfortable and spacious and she loves to take the dogs for hikes which Ryder just loves to do.
From the day of Meet and Greet, I was sure Mishka would be in a comfortable, safe environment. Rosanna is very personable and knowledgeable about dog behavior. She also made special efforts to accommodate Mishka's need for physical activity, taking him on long hikes and even to the dog park he knew best. At the end, Mishka was happy to see me but I am sure he will miss the fun he had with Rosanna.
My husband and I can't stop raving about Rosanna. She's been a true lifesaver when it comes to our little yorkie. We never worry whenever we travel because we trust Rosanna provides the best care possible. Her attention to detail and level of compassion is something you will never find in a kennel or boarding facility.
Rosanna is awesome with Cali. Like we said in our first review, this is a love love relationship. Our Cali used to whine when we would leave her with others but not with Rosanna. Rosanna has a way with Cali so she doesn't even notice we are absent. We are carefree when Cali is with Rosanna because we know Cali is not missing us. She is having a great time on her hikes and playing with Rosanna's pups. Thank you Rosanna.
Rosanna is amazing. She is caring, knowledgable, and obviously loved our Cali. She sent us texts and photos several times and assured us of Cali's happiness and well being. Rosanna took Cali on a hike each day and we knew Cali was very happy and well cared for. We will definitely use Rosanna again. Cali would never forgive us if we didn't! Oh yes, Cali has two new friends as well in Rosanna's own two pups. Thanks Rosanna. : )
Thanks again for taking such great care of Sawyer!!
Mimi always comes back home happy and healthy. My husband and I will continue to reserve dogvacays with Rosanna!
My husband and I trust Rosanna 100% and will continue to use her dogsitting services whenever we leave town. Mimi always comes back home happy and healthy!
Sawyer's second home- thanks again for hosting him :)
Rosanna is so flexible and is always willing to work with our schedule. This stay was scheduled last minute but as always she took extremely great care of our Brandy. Brandy came back extremely tired but without losing any wait. This is rare as she always loses some weight. I interpret this as Brandy getting really comfortable with Rosanna.
Brandy had another great stay with Rosanna, Reggie and Marni! Rosanna provided plenty of updates (txt and pics). As soon we drive up Brandy can't wait to get off, she is really starting to call Rosanna's place home.
As soon as my husband and I met Rosanna, we knew she was the one! Our little 7lb yorkie played well with Reggie and Marnie (the resident dogs). We couldn't have asked for a better arrangement while we were on vacation!
Another great dogvacay with Rosanna. Our lil Brandy always gets her share of exercise and play. Rosanna is always our first DogVacay option.
Bella always seems to have fun with Rosanna and she is super flexible!
another great stay- Rosanna and her family are awesome. Sawyer gets great exercise and companionship while we are away. Thanks again!!
Rosanna was terrific. She took my little boy Shoogs on a lovely hike while I was away at Sundance this past week. I was comforted knowing he was in good hands. Rosanna was very communicative about planning and reporting back, along with sending photos. I'll definitely schedule more time for my pup with Rosanna next time I travel.
Bella had a wonderful time with Rosanna and her two dogs. All of the dogs played wonderfully together.

Working with Rosanna to book the reservation was great and she was quite flexible, even at the last minute. Bonus points for sending many wonderful pictures to me during Bella's stay!
This was our first time letting Abby stay with someone (Rosanna) and she was wonderful. Abby got to go on walks, went to the dog park, and got lots of love and attention. Rosanna also kept me updated frequently with texts and pictures of our Abby during the day. Rosanna clearly loves dogs and was a very responsible pet sitter. I will definitely have Abby stay with them again!
Thank you!
Rosanna was the most WONDERFUL host for my 2 (big) babies! She graciously showed me her home before I booked my reservation, and it's beautiful - big enough for large dogs to run around and complete with a multi-level/fenced in deck out back where they can play. She also took them on hikes, and regularly sent me pictures to update me on their adventures. Honestly, I couldn't have asked for more from my first experience on DogVacay. Now before I book anywhere else, I'll check to see if Rosanna is home! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Rosanna was fantastic. She took care of our Oboe like he was one of her own. She understood all his silly quirks right away. Rosanna kept us well informed on how our dog was doing with texts and photos during his stay. When food and treats ran low she even went to our house to resupply. I would highly recommend Rosanna if you are looking for a sitter in Brisbane or close to SFO. Oboe had an awesome time and when we ran into Rosanna with her two dogs the next day he was so excited to see her and the dogs - a great sign that he had a wonderful time.

Thank you Rosanna for taking such great care of our furry friend.
Another great stay for Sawyer- thanks again :)
Rosanna provided an excellent dogvacay for our Brandy!

She was extremely responsive, kept us updated and provided lots of photos of her activities. At the end of the day and what is important to all dog parents is that it was clear to us that she loved Brandy as if she were her own. Brandy is a young Vizsla with lots of energy and could use a lot more training. Rosanna was able to keep Brandy under control and took her to many places. To name a few, Rosanna sent us pictures of Brandy taking car rides, running on the beach, playing at the dog park, and etc. Rosanna also has two loving dogs that are great role models for Brandy. At our first visit, we saw Brandy playing well with Reggie and chasing each other around. And it was so cute to see a picture of Brandy cuddling with Marnie after a fun day at the beach.

Brandy is used to getting lots of exercise and play with other dogs at previous boarders. The result is that she is always noticeably skinnier than when we dropped her off. Not so with Rosanna. Brandy looked great and healthy at the end of her dogvacay. Rosanna let us know that she had a good appetite. It was obvious that she was getting tons of exercise as well. The night we picked her up she was a tired and happy pup. We need to get Rosanna’s secret for stoking Brandy’s appetite (I think it involves Reggie and Marnie, her family dogs).

We’re completely aware that Brandy is more than a handful but Rosanna didn’t seem to notice. She either loved it and/or has extremely deep patience, both qualities that we can’t appreciate enough. Rosanna was so thoughtful that she even let us leave our car and gave us a ride to the airport. Her place is minutes from the airport. This option made the drop off of Brandy so much easier. The minute we dropped off Brandy, both of our vacays started. Thanks again Rosanna!
Sawyer had another great stay with Rosanna and her family!! They are very active and regularly sent updates including pictures regarding their adventures (hikes and beach outings). Once again Sawyer was happy and relaxed upon his return home. Thanks again :)
Rosanna was such a lovely friend to our dog Cocoa. She sent me pictures of their walks and her lounging, she communicated concerns and expressed Cocoa's happiness while in her care. Rosanna is a responsible dog parent and it shows in every way. Her house was also lovely with lots of room for the dogs. She dropped her off since we were returning late, and was very accommodating from the first meeting to following up with me the when we returned to see how Cocoa was.

Our whole family can not recommend Rosanna enough.
Rosanna and her family (dogs included) are exceptional!! She sent frequent pictures of our dog Sawyer's adventures while at her house. Sawyer was happy and relaxed upon his return home. I think he misses his new friends :)
