About Steven & Maggie

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I are life-long animal lovers and have had dogs or cats most of our lives. Although we do not have a private fenced in yard, we have an incredible half-block of dog park directly behind our apartment complex. I also work from home so I'm well suited to hosting your dog and giving them lots of attention all day! We’ve been dogsitting for friends and family since 2014 and have really enjoyed all the new furry friends we’ve made!

We have a large apartment unit that is over 1100 square feet that includes a wide balcony. A wonderful play space for our visiting dogs! The apartment is on the second floor, so please let us know before booking if your dog has trouble with stairs. We have lots of blankets, toys, and a couch is welcome to all dogs. I also love to do daily text/photo updates for you!

Payment is completed up front but don't worry! I have a flexible refund policy set so you can get a full refund up to 4 days before the stay if anything changes.

It is important that you understand your dog(s) may not be the only one in my home during their stay. We may require a Meet and Greet for new clients so that I get a good understanding of which pups may or may not work well together. I try hard to make sure all guest dogs will have a fun and relaxing time in our home.

Multi-Dog families receive $5 off for each additional dog.

*We also send each guest dog home with a little personalized doggy gift as a small token of appreciation for choosing us over the other wonderful hosts!

We would love to meet and help care for your dog! Please send us a message with any questions/concerns you have and I am usually able to respond very quickly.

Thanks :)

Rose, my rambunctious golden retriever puppy, has stayed with Steven several times and we just love him and Maggie. I am always happy to receive his text message photo updates of how my girl is doing while there! There is a huge park right behind the apartment complex, so it makes it easy to run and get her energy out before she gets home. She loves to visit and play with their golden, visiting the park a few times each day. Steven is always very flexible with drop off and pick up times as well, which is a big plus! Once I even forgot to bring food for Rose when I was in a rush on the way to the airport and he was so gracious about it, told me not to worry about it at all and asked me which of the two foods he has on-hand I would prefer for Rose. Oh and that reminds me - their apartment is right on my way to the airport, makes it the perfect place for Rose when I travel for work. Scooping her up after the flight couldn't be easier.

We've used Steven & Maggie more than a dozen times for doggy babysitting and daycare, and I couldn't be happier leaving our pup with them. I can trust that they will always be looking out for our Bernadet and appreciate how much they interact with the dogs that stay with them and how often they communicates with me about how everyone is doing.

I can always count on Steven to send multiple photo updates, fun videos, etc. about how the day is going. Our dog is very easygoing, but it is nice to know how she is getting along when you're not around.

Bernadet has had some medical issues in the past few months (seizures, UTI, bite mark) and has almost always had to take some kind of medication. Steven is great about that and gives me updates on how she is taking it. He really went above and beyond in situations like that.

I appreciate that they were prompt when messaging me and always flexible with pickup and drop off. Bernadet LOVES coming over and no longer lingers at the door when I drop her off - she just trots to the back to see who her new friends will be. I've seen a HUGE improvement in her social skills. I would highly recommend Coastal Pet Paradise!

Steven & Maggie were absolutely incredible. We have a 1.5 year old boxer who has a ton of energy and they (and their golden retriever) were a perfect match. They took her for tons of walks at their nearby park (even though it was raining) and sent a lot of photos that put my wife an I at ease while we were away for 4 days. They also were very flexible with pickup and drop-off times, which we really appreciated. I could not recommend someone more to watch your dog. We'll definitely be using them again!
Steven, Maggie, and their golden retriever took great care of Auggie during his stay. I received photos of the evenings activities and Auggie went home after his stay happy and healthy. I'd highly recommend Steven and Maggie and hope to rebook soon!
Steven and Maggie took wonderful care of our 10 month old puppy, Beans! They sent us updates and photos each day we were away, and it was clear that Beans was in very good hands. And she had a blast playing with their sweet golden retriever, Opie! We would love for Beans to stay with Steven and Maggie again!
Steve and Maggie (and Opie !) were the best! It was such a relief to find someone we could trust our 2 year golden Buddy with. From the first interaction with Opie and Steven we could see that they love dogs and that he would be in great hands.

Buddy loves his walks and so that was a huge priority for us. We were very happy that they felt the same way and took him out often. We were also a bit concerned about it being an apartment but were so glad when we saw it that it was clean and neat with enough space for him to roam around.

It was his first overnight stay and we were delighted that he was completely at ease and was well looked after. Steven was quick to reply to any texts and sent us pics and updates on he was doing. They were also flexible with the pickup times which was a big help for us.

We will definitely be more than happy to leave Buddy with them again.

Would highly recommend Coastal Pet Paradise to anyone who is looking for someone who will love and really care for your pup.
Steven & Maggie were wonderful with Cody. It's great to find people that you can complete trust with your pet - takes some of the worries out of traveling without them.
Maggie and Steve were absolutely wonderful to work with and wonderful to our dogs!!! We took a trip over Thanksgiving weekend to Yosemite and when we were trying to board the dogs, we quickly realized everything was booked. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise because we turned to DogVacay and found Maggie and Steve. They took such great care of our babies (even though our dogs can be difficult at times) and even texted us pictures and updates. We felt very safe leaving our pets with them in their home. When we picked them up, they were waiting outside with the dogs and their stuff for an easier pick-up. They even gave us two little treat bags for the girls! We'll definitely be asking them to watch our dogs again.
Steven and Maggie are awesome!! I could not have been happier with the care they provided. They responded quickly to every email and made my first experience fantastic! They let my Boy, Zeker, sleep on their bed, let him on their coach, fed him the way I feed him, took him on walks and to the Dog park. They sent me pictures daily and even bought him a new toy he loves. I actually think Zeker was a bit sad and missed them his first night home. I will always use Steven and Maggie when I leave town and would highly recommend them to anyone else needing a Dog Vacay! Thank You Steven and Maggie.
Steve and Maggie were so great to interact with, and I can tell Sophia (my basset hound) had a great time hanging out with them and their golden retriever Opie. They were responsive, on-time, and even sent me a picture of Sophia playing in the park next to their place, even though it was only a one-night stay. They also accommodated Sophia's special dietary needs, making sure to only feed her the food I provided. You can tell these two love dogs and have a passion for caring for them well. I will definitely be booking another longer stay with them soon!
