About Nancy

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Lovely English Cottage in the Verdugo Woodlands, Glendale,Ca. Private with three gated yards. A dog guest is welcomed into our home with sensitivity and individualized personal care as part of our family which includes one loving female dog. Our treats and food are mostly organic-grain free and carefully selected human quality. Doggy-guests are never outside without supervision. We generally only take one dog guest at a time (2 from same family) and provide a very secure and loving experience for each dog. Occasionally, when dog guests have met and we know they enjoy each other, we may combine a couple for a socialization experience. Our guests soon come to know us as their extended family and look forward to a return visit.
We offer our home to young puppies, well-behaved socialized adults, and senior dogs used to living indoors. We understand senior dogs, as well as providing very young puppy care. Occasionally we can also visit your dog in your home for walking and play visits. Call or email to discuss your situation and needs. Transportation arranged when possible for an additional fee. Note: Because puppies require more work and supplies, the daily rate is higher. Please ask for custom quote.

As usual, our pup was pampered by Nancy and thoroughly enjoyed her stay at the cozy cottage. There is no one and no place we trust more for Maddie.
Nancy is the best! Sometimes I think my dog would rather stay with her than return home.
Nancy is all I could ask for in a dogsitter and more! She is so patient with my 15-year-old dog Jackie. She treats Jackie like one of her own. Jackie is always excited to see Nancy, and loves getting to spend the day partially indoors and partially outside exploring Nancy's shady yard.
Every time my dog stays with Nancy, it's like she's at home. She is happy and really enjoys her visits.
Nancy is the best. My dog gets the royal treatment every time she visits!
Nancy is terrific and pampered Kira like a princess. Our dog came back happy and healthy. Thank you again, Nancy, for taking such good care of our girl!
This is the third or fourth time we've brought Billy to Nancy. Before we planned our trip, we knew if there was anyone we trusted to leave Billy with, it was Nancy, and we weren't wrong. Nancy made Billy so comfortable that he acted just as he does at home. She is a great observer and interpreter of animal behavior and provided us with her insights (in addition to photos and occasional videos) via e-mail while we were traveling -- which made us even more confident that our beloved dog was in good hands. Billy enjoyed his companionship with Nancy’s dog, Allie, as well. Once again Nancy proved to be the best sitter anyone could wish for. We can't recommend Nancy highly enough! Thanks Nancy.
Nancy is the best! She sends great pictures and updates and my dog is happy and comfortable at her place. Her house is my dog's home away from home. Thank you, Nancy!
Nancy has been helping us for a couple years now and I am so happy to say that she has been simply the best to us dogs and humans. Both my dogs love it at Nancy's, clearly they can't talk but I can tell by the way they climb the stairs and cry in front of Nancy's gate to get in, that they want to be there.
When it's time for me to leave they don't try to follow me but stay around with Allie (Nancy's dog) wagging their tail and sniffing around. I don't talk dogs but that's got to be some signs. It's nice to know that they have a home away from home. Thank you Nancy!
Another wonderful stay for Maddie with her Aunt Nancy and Cousin Allie. The pictures that were sent during our time away reflected such joy in Maddie's heart... and in turn ours. She could run outside, play with Allie, and her Aunt Nancy showers her with love. If we could give her a "6" we would! We'll be coming back soon.
Nancy is Maddie's favorite aunt and she loves coming there. Nancy knows just how to manage her well and when to call us with concerns. She's the best!
We are beginning to think our puppy likes it better at the Cozy Cottage than at our home. The moment we bring her up the steps she's off and running with the pack. She doesn't even miss us -- which is a good thing. Otherwise we would hate to leave her. Nancy is the dog whisperer of Dog Vacay. We never worry when Maddie is with her.
Nancy is the best! My dog had so much fun at her house and was really pampered there. The pictures and videos Nancy sent were much appreciated. I always know my dog is in good hands when she is with Nancy. Thanks!
Fantastic, superb...Eddie loves Nancy!!! He writes it in the sand everyday!!!
Lovely!!! Full of adventure and fun...a romp with his pals...and lots of lovvve...
Nancy is terrific. After our first meet and greet with Nancy and her dog, Allie, we came back for his overnight, and Kodi was so excited to be back at her house. Nancy is warm and caring, very experienced, and created a home away-from-home for Kodi. She sent detailed emails, texts, and photos that gave us great updates of his day and evening activities. And that was only for one night! Kodi played in her garden, and she was kind enough to make sure he was all cleaned up for pick-up! He clearly had a fun time at Nancy's. He came home and promptly fell asleep, all tuckered out from fun. We love Nancy!
Always superb and confirmed by a discriminating guest with impeccable taste..Ed.
Eddie loves Nancy!!!
This was the longest stay Maddie has had with Nancy and it could not have gone better! Pictures of Maddie that Nancy sent throughout the two week period made it abundantly clear that Maddie was having as good a time on HER vacay as we were on ours -- and that made ours even better! Nancy is like the dog whisperer. She gets dogs -- and their parents too. I think Maddie came home even better adjusted than when we left her. She certainly had learned new tricks! You won't go wrong with Nancy.
...another five star experience for the discriminating boarder...
Cozy Cottage is always a lovely sanctuary for our Corgis and Nancy is always the very best host. I love her daily journals and photos about how our boys are doing and how attentive and loving she so clearly is -- I never worry when the boys are with Nancy!
This was my second time leaving my dog Jackie with Nancy, and it turned out just as well as the first! Nancy is very loving towards Jackie and understands the specific needs of dogs well. I will definitely be back!
At the risk of repeating myself, it's always a five star experience for the Prince!
The Best!!
We are extremely grateful to Nancy for taking awesome care of our Chubbs! She took our reservation even it was short notice this time.
She is always very helpful. We enjoy the wonderful photos and updates she sends us during our vacation. Thank you Nancy! You are the best!

This was the first time we had to leave Billy, our beagle, for nine days while we travelled. Nancy gave him supreme care and attention, plus the very best in nutrition and healthy snacks.
Nancy is a true dog lover, an incredible, thoughtful host who goes above and beyond your expectations. We enjoyed lots of photos and updates she sent us daily about how Billy was doing, and were happy to see how comfortable he was when we picked him up.
Nancy is simply the best and we recommend her highly.
I could tell the dogs were extremely comfortable and happy in the cozy cottage. Nancy gave our 2 friends, Spartacus and Helen, supreme care and attention. Much to my chagrin, Spartacus had some fleas and a small sore from biting. Nancy appropriately treated him, and delivered him back in much better shape then we left him.
Another great DogVacay for Ellie! Our little one got to spend Thanksgiving in a loving home with a great "babysitter" and we got to enjoy our trip without worry or stress. Nancy is simply the best and we can't imagine having anyone else watch her for extended periods.
Always a five star experience for Ed! He tells me this is the Ritz Carlton of doggie vacay!
Cozy Cottage was such an excellent experience for my dog Hipster and for me I can't say enough about it-- Nancy is an incredible, thoughtful host who goes above and beyond. She sent us lots of photos and updates daily about how Hipster was doing (he looked very happy and active and fit right in) and her home is perfect for a dog vacay -- a lovely cozy cottage situated in a quiet neighborhood, lots of cozy beds and tons of toys and the very best in nutrition and healthy snacks. Nancy fed Hipster so well I've adopted her feeding routine since he looks fantastic! He was very very happy at Cozy Cottage -- he felt right at home and I didn't worry for one second seeing how well Nancy cared for him and what a true dog lover she is. I recommend her highly -- you don't have to worry one bit while you're on vacation if your beloved dog is with her (and I'm quite a worrier so that's saying a lot!)
This is the third or fourth time we've brought Ellie to Nancy. It's also the longest -- two weeks. We were so worried about leaving her for so long but if there was anyone we trusted, it was Nancy. And we weren't wrong. Nancy gets dogs. She allowed Ellie to be Ellie without trying to make her conform to Nancy's schedule or needs. She is a great observer and interpreter of animal behavior and provided us with her insights (and photos) via e-mail while we were traveling -- which made us even more confident that our little one was in good hands. In the past Ellie came back from places she was boarded anxious, having lost weight, and frantic to see us when we walked in the room. Although Ellie was clearly happy to see us, she wasn't trying to get out of the place as fast as possible. The entire experience was much more calm for both Ellie and us! We can't recommend Nancy highly enough -- but we get first dibs if she's busy.
Eddie's comfort home away from home...first rate always!
Seriously, your dog is pampered, adored and cared for like family. Eddie loves staying here and he may actually confuse it for his primary residence.
Nancy was great with my dog Jackie. She was very accommodating, and it is obvious she has a lot of experience with dogs. I really enjoyed the updates Nancy sent me each day with photos of what Jackie had been up to. I would definitely recommend her!
I think Eddie is throwing me over for his new fan club! He can't wait to get to Nancy's and kick it with his new bff Allie. Totally Pawsome!!!
You will never find a better sitter, companion, organic dog chef for your pooch!
This was my dog, Maggie's, first stay with Nancy K. and everything was perfect! I received photo updates and was able to enjoy my vacation with no worries about Maggie at all.

Nancy K. is very professional, responsible, caring, and just an all-round great person.

Very grateful to have found her!

Most Awesome! The Best!
I could not have found a better doggie vacay for Eddie. Nancy is a caring, thoughtful, dog loving host who made Eddie feel right at home. I can't thank her enough!
Thank you so much again Nancy for having our puppies to your home for the 3rd time. And most of all Thank you for accommodating us to put together my husband's surprise party. Bean and Washington wag their tails as they come over and don't seem to care to go back home with me. And I love the update pictures. I could go on and on of how much we love you. Thank you.
100 % amazing. Super delightful, professional, and caring towards the dogs keeping us updated all the way with pictures and text. Thank you Nancy!
We always worry when we have to leave our little Ellie with a Petsitter. It was no different with Nancy. But it was different in terms of how quickly Ellie acclimated and our ability to relax while away. Nancy is just great. She gets both dogs and their owners. She sent updates regularly and we felt confident about her ability to effectively parent our pup in our absence. She followed our instructions beyond the letter. We highly recommend her and will definitely use het again. Ellie says THANK YOU!
Nancy did a fantastic job watching Kira! She was very caring and we loved getting her daily updates and pictures. Kira was treated like a member of her family. Thanks so much!
My Beagles had a wonderful time with Nancy. She was very thorough upon our first meeting in learning all about my boy's habits, health, likes and dislikes. Marlowe is very shy and takes a while to warm up to people. When I picked them up, he rushed over to Nancy and wanted her to pet him! Watson has been having separation anxiety when I leave our house, but Nancy told me he only whined for a few minutes. Ally, Nancy's dog, is also a big sweetheart, and she was so excited to see the Beagles when they came over.
I would highly recommend Nancy and her home for a DogVacay!
Our dog, Misty had a great stay with Nancy. We felt Nancy was a true dog lover at the first meeting.
She welcomed Misty as a guest. Also, she has a good of knowledge of dogs, especially senior dogs like ours.
This vacation was the first time that we didn't worry about our dog! Only thing we didn't like was Misty did not want to go home when we picked her up.... Nancy’s house was so comfortable to Misty. We will definitely ask Nancy for our next out of town trip.
