About Stephanie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello there, and welcome to Château Cuddles Playcation, where dogs are well loved on and well cared for during their playcation! I'm Stephanie and I've been providing canine getaways through Dog Vacay for over two years now, and have enjoyed my time meeting and caring for dogs of many different breeds, sizes, personalities.

I am the owner of an 8-year-old pet-friendly Cavapoo called Chloe, and have been a dog owner all my life. I will care for your dog to your specifications (as I would expect to be done for my Chloë). Rest easy knowing that while you are away, your dog is having a blast during their stay at the Château.

I live in a very spacious fourplex that provides ample room for your pupparoos to roam and run freely, while indoors. I live 3 blocks away from Bixby park, and a short car ride to three dog parks in Long Beach: K-9 Dog Park, Rosie's Dog Beach, and Recreation Park Dog Park. A bonus is that each of them provide generous off-leash areas for your dog to run around to their heart's content.

Currently, my Chloe is fed twice a day and walked 3-4 times a day for 10-30 minutes, depending on the weather. However, some dogs need at least an hour, which I have no problem doing during the evenings and on the weekends. On average, during the weekdays, boarders walk for 15-30 mins in the morning, 35 mins to an hr. in the evening, and 5-10 mins before bedtime. Weekends include an additional 15 min walk in the afternoons.

I am a vigilant and responsible pet owner - the kind of person you could trust your beloved pets with, and children of all ages if you had any.


**HOLIDAY/EXTENDED WEEKEND RATES**
Due to high demand, for holiday inquiries my rate increases by an additional $5 to $15 dollars per night, depending on the (bank) holiday/holiday weekends:

The total additional amount will be indicated at point of request and/or meet-and-greet, but prior to final reservation confirmation.**

Indio had a wonderful time with Stephanie and Chloe. I received a photo of my pup and Stephanie's both sharing the same dog bed. So cute! Indio got lot's of attention and I know he will be happy to visit the next time. Thank you, Stephanie!
Stephanie was great! She replied within minutes of my booking request and was willing to take my pup without a meet and greet that same night, and within less than a couple hours of our first message. She braved watching my overly rambunctious 70lb puppy overnight while I left town on a family emergency. I would definitely book with her again! She's laid back but also professional, sent me updates of my pup throughout the day, and my pup came home tired and happy from playing with Chloe. Thanks again Stephanie!

Stephanie did a great job taking care of my Cheeto Boy! I would recommend her to anyone who wants to make sure a loving kind person watches over their furry friends while away.
Stephanie was a wonderful host to Penny during our stay in Long Beach. She responded quickly and you could tell upon meeting her that she was a kind and caring animal lover. She made a note to send updates as well as some really great photos of Penny during her visit. I would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for a sitter in the Long Beach area.

Stephanie was very attentive, sent photos and took excellent care of Theo including making sure he took his medicine. I highly recommend!
Stephanie always makes it easy to drop off and pick up!
Babu loves going to the Chalet!
We are new puppy parents and were nervous about leaving our pup so soon after getting her. Lucy's stay with Stephanie and Chloe was fantastic. Stephanie is very knowledgeable and Lucy loved her!

Stephanie sent us updates often, and it was very reassuring to see Lucy was doing well!

Thank you Stephanie for taking such good care of our pup!

This is LONG over due. Stephanie was very friendly and treated Chloe lIke she was one of her own. Chloe was exhausted (hooray!) And happy. Great first experience with DogVacay. Thank you Stephanie!
Stephanie was amazing! Rusty had a fabulous time, and she was more than willing to work with us in terms of a package for the weekend to make sure we got the best deal for what Rusty needed. Loved the photo updates that she sent throughout the weekend as well. Very clear that she loves dogs and takes excellent care of her guests. We will most definitely be using Stephanie's services again. Thanks for taking such good care of Rusty!

Our dog was well taken care of as always! Thanks Stephanie!
First time dog vacay user and Stephanie made it a great experience for both my dog and I!
Our little pup has stayed with Stephanie more than 5 times now and he loves it there! He is always excited when and happy when we drop him off! He even got sick before while we were away and Stephanie did an amazing job taking care of him. We always have peace of mind about our little guy whenever he stays with her.

Stephanie's personality def works for us and our pup! Our dog had a great stay- would stay again
Stephanie was great and kept me updated throughout Teddy's stay. He seemed well taken care of when I picked him up. I would definitely use Stephanie again.
Great host!
Great host!
one can tell right away that stephanie loves dogs. she sent us updates while we were away, and she even tried to get our old beagle to play a little (which he never does). very highly recommend!!
Stephanie is a great host. Babu (dog) actually whines and whimpers after I pick him up and we drive away. That tells me he misses Stephanie and Chloe (dog)! Stephanie is also very flexible with scheduling. Drop off and pick up are super convenient.

Stephanie was great with our Lab! You can tell she really does care about dogs (which is the most important thing) and she really takes the time to tailor to your dog's individual needs. Just an overall awesome experience!
Thanks for watching Bryson and thanks for sending us the updates while we were gone. We'll definitely be calling you again soon.
Stephanie is an awesome host. She stays in touch throughout the reservation. She also takes great photos.
The boys enjoyed there visit. They were happy to see me on my return and napped the afternoon away when they got home. This was our first visit and it was short. The boys did not show the same effects after, like loose stools when they have returned from a more rigid boarding situation. This was a good fit for us.

Stephanie was awesome! She provided updates, and she took some great photos. Babu is looking forward to his next DogVacay with Stephanie next week.
This was the first vacation we'd taken since getting our Pippen so we were a bit anxious about how everything would go. Well, we didn't need to worry about a thing. Stephanie was wonderful. She took such good care of our puppy, and he was so happy with her. Stephanie sent pictures every day so we could see he was fine. When we picked him up, he was relaxed and happy. He had thoroughly enjoyed Stephanie and her other guests -- it was real vaca for him too! I would recommend Stephanie anytime! L Stultz

Stephanie was wonderful. We had to leave our dog with her for a week and our dog had a great time. Our flight was also delayed on the way home and Stephanie offered to take our dog for another night! Thanks Stephanie for your care and flexibility!
Stephanie was great! Our dog had a great time with her. She sent us lots of pictures and a comprehensive recap everyday. Since we are new to the area, I reached out to her after Pintu's stay with her about dog grooming and vet recommendations and she provided information for both. Our little guy threw up during his stay (normal for him from time to time) and she was so great about caring for him and cleaning him up before sending him home with us. We are already planning to use her for 2 more upcoming trips this year.

This was our first time using DogVacay, and we are very picky about our dog sitters. Stephanie not only met our expectations - she exceeded them. She sent daily updates as well as pictures that put us at ease. Our dog very rarely plays with other dogs, but he got along extremely well with Stephanie's dog, Chloe, and he even played a bit! This reflects just how comfortable he was with Stephanie. We highly recommend her and will definitely be using her in the future!

Stephanie did a great job with my little alpha dog!!!! I really appreciated her flexibility. And gave me assurances that my dog was doing ok! I will board with her again as long as she still lives across the street from me. :-)
Stephanie was great! We are very overprotective of our dogs and hate leaving them. After my husband dropped them off, he told me she was great, clearly a dog-lover, and they would be just fine. Such a relief!
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I'm so grateful for the service provided by Stephanie. Her professionalism and patience are impeccable! I enjoyed and thoroughly appreciated! I almost dread giving her a good review because I don't want her to be booked the next time I need her...Lol. In all honesty, she deserves this review. Duke Ellington loved her!

Stephanie was great! My dog is usually quite shy when meeting new people, but he was comfortable with Stephanie right away. The pictures and detailed updates she sent everyday really set my mind at ease. When I picked him up he seemed happy and relaxed. I would definitely use Stephanie again and recommend her to friends.

Stephanie was wonderful! She sent photo updates that helped to reassure me that Brady was being well taken care of. I have already recommended Stephanie to others.
This is my first time boarding my dog and Stephanie made the experience very pleasant. She was extremely professional, clearly took amazing care of my beloved Cocker Spaniel and was able to work around my dog's needs. I received friendly daily updates with pictures and messages every day while I was away and came back from my trip knowing that my dog had had just as much fun as I did when I was away. I am very lucky to have found Stephanie, and highly recommend her!

I had to find a last minute sitter and Stephanie was great! She sent pictures and emails letting me know everything was okay with my dog. Before I left she was communicative and asked all the right questions. I will use Stephanie again next time!
Stephanie was an amazing host for my dog! When my dog was showing separation anxiety she called Doggy Vacay for tips and was really proactive in trying to make her feel comfortable over the holiday weekend. She sent me pictures everyday of the dogs activities and kept me updated on how my dog was coping. I really appreciate the care she puts in and her love of dogs. Thanks, Stephanie!
