About Danica

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello (: My name is Danica! I’m 23-years old and a part time student. My boyfriend Ryan and I live together in a 1000 square foot condo located in Murrieta. We have two dogs of our own that we consider our children by the names of Kramer (Border Terrier Mix) and Buddy (Golden Retriever). We also have a cat named Sophia who gets along with every dog she meets.

Your doggy companion will enjoy hours of attention, and will never be left alone for a long period of time. (Only if we have to run a quick errand). They will also enjoy multiple walks per day (in the early morning and late evenings so it’s not too hot), visits to the local dog park (only if allowed by you), along with they will have their picture taken throughout the day to keep you updated on what they’re doing.

Let’s face it, leaving your pet can be a scary experience for both of you. The main reason (besides the fact Ryan won’t let me get another dog right now) we started boarding dogs in our home is to give other doggy parents peace of mind that their dog is being given just as much love and attention as they would be at home in a safe environment. Your dog will never ever be outside unless they are with one of us.

Although we do not require a meet and greet to watch your doggy, we highly recommend them. Simply because Ryan and I both want to make sure in our minds that your dog will be a great doggy guest in our home, as well as you feel comfortable leaving him/her with us while you travel.

We look forward to meeting you and your pup and being able to watch them in our home!

Danica and Ryan are the best. This was my husband and I first time having them watch our little ones and we have used them since. They have dogs of their own so they know how to love play and take care of yours too.
Danica is great. She made our yorkiepoo, Quincy, feel at home while we were away for a week. If our dog could talk he would probably report that Danica loved on him more than we do!
They did an amazing job with our English bulldog. He was well taken care of and loved while we were away, and maybe a bit spoiled too. No different than being at home with us.
Absolutely incredible! All pet parents know that leaving your little one with someone while you travel can be a bit nerve wracking. From the moment I dropped Chloe up to the time of pick up she was so kind and communicative. I never worried and my boyfriend was shocked that I felt so at ease. Thank you Danica!
Danica and Ryan were easy to work with. They provided updates and always responded quickly to my texts and e-mails. They took good care of my dog for a few days and helped my dog feel at home while we were away.
We left our two dogs with Danica and Ryan for 3 days. We felt very comfortable doing so. It's obvious they are dogs lovers and care for other animals very much. We got pictures and updates on how things were going. Our dogs our couch sleepers so it was comforting to know that they would feel at home sleeping on Danica's couch too. Our pups will be going back in December. I recommend using Danica for your pet sitting needs. Thanks you both for helping us enjoy our time away...Herb
Danica and Ryan were fantastic! They met us earlier than our stay because one of my pups is quite large and they were more than happy to take them in. We got updates and photos while we were gone and the boys came home exhausted and happy. We also got report cards which was fun to read as well. We will be rebooking for sure!
Danika and Ryan were the "perfect" people for Bailey. They are truly pet lovers and treated her so well, she even slept in the bed like she does at home! She was tired from playing with her "new" friends, but I never worried about her well-being at all. I would use and recommend Danika and Ryan in a heartbeat! I am so glad that I found them- I was able to take a much needed vacation without a worry in the world about my sweet Bailey!!! Thank you guys, love ya!!!
My female German Shepherd has been my baby since she was a puppy about 3+years ago. I am very concerned and picky about who watches her, and I could not be happier with Danica and Ryan taking care of her when I have to be away. They provide a setting that is very much a "home" environment and they both care a lot for dogs. They communicate well and frequently about Heidi's status, with photos and text messages.
Danica was super friendly and accommodating. She sent us pictures and updates. We felt completely at ease knowing our dogs were in good company. Would recommend them to anyone and we definitely plan on using them again. Thanks!
Great people sent pictures during stay
We felt very comfortable knowing our pups were getting walks and playtime. Danica sent pics and updates. We will definately be using her services in the future!
Alfie's stay with Danika was a great experience. She texted me often and sent pictures so I would be kept in the loop.alfie liked her husband, Ryan and spent a lot of time with him.Ryan makes a great back-up. Alfie had his teeth brushed once daily which is really going the extra mile. I enjoyed my mini vacation, and so did my little guy.
I was relocating to the area and needed a place for my dog, Boo, to stay while I moved everything in to my apartment. Danica and Ryan were so accommodating and helpful, especially during a stressful time for me! Boo was welcomed right away and warmed up to them and the other animals pretty quickly. I love the photo updates as it let me know how Boo was doing throughout her stay. Danica also offers one of the most reasonable prices in the area, which is awesome for poor college students like myself. ;) Boo has definitely found a second home with Danica and Ryan whenever I need to skip town for a few days! :)
Danica and Ryan were so accommodating when I went out of town! I told them what time I would like to bring my dogs and what time I would like to pick them up and they were available for us. She also sent photo/status updates during the dogs stay. I'll choose them again!
Danica and Ryan are great! My dog was happy to see me, but he didn't look like he missed me. I got updates and photos while I was gone, and a very nice written report about his stay. Will definitely use Danica again. Thank you!
Danica and Ryan are awesome! They both LOVE dogs and they treated Romeo like he was their own. Romeo loves to do tricks and Ryan worked with him (he needed a refresher course!!!). Romeo loved playing tug-of-war with their dog, Buddy. They took all the dogs staying with them on a long walk every night after the sun went down. Romeo stayed with them for six days while we were on vacation and Danica sent me daily texts, photos and videos. I looked forward to seeing them everyday and they always made me smile. The videos made me feel totally reassured that Romeo was safe and HAPPY! What more could you ask for in a dog sitter! THANKS Danica and Ryan and DogVacay!
Danica and Ryan treated our dog as though it was their own. I highly recommend them as dog sitters. We'll use then next time for sure.
Danika and Ryan are lifesavers. I desperately needed someone to look after my moms little dog while she was recuperating from a serious illness. Within moments of my sending the request, Danicka got back to me and a few hours later I was able to drop Lucy off with her babysitter. Danicka kept in touch with me daily, sending me updates and photos of Lucy regularly. It was such a relief to know that Lucy was in a loving home getting the attention and love she was accustomed to getting. I would HIGHLY recommend Danicka and Ryan to anyone needing quality care for their pets! A+++ ❤️
Danica and Ryan were absolutely wonderful and accommodating! They took my sweet Bailey to the vet and helped her get anxiety medication, and upon returning her home, we received a detailed note of how she did, and her behaviors over the stay. She kept us updated with messages & photos, and I was worry free. They're seriously the nicest people, and their dogs are cuties too! I'll definitely rebook with them again, if needed. I can tell she misses them!
Danica took awesome care of our dog, Pax. We had constant updates and pictures throughout our vacation and every single picture our Pax was relaxed, happy and playful. We will definitely be contacting her again in the future and I really recommend her. THANK YOU AGAIN, DANICA!!!
Danika is wonderful. I got regular updates .... with photos and even a video. Cali looked happy and relaxed. I will definitely use her again I highly recommend her.
Danica and Ryan are amazing . I have never had anybody watch are two dogs this was are first time and they made it the most easiest to do. I Would go through them in a heartbeat to watch our dogs again .II can tell my pitbull already misses them .They took them on walks etc. They Really took care of my dogs.
They truly love dogs and they will give your dogs the most amazing attention and love and care . Thank you for the most cutest report card note . Thank you guys so much for everything . would definitely recommend if you are looking for someone to watch your dog they are it
Danica was such an awesome host for our puppy! She was so kind and welcoming and treated our dog like one of her own. She sent updates and photos and she made my husband and I feel very comfortable with leaving our puppy while we were on vacation. We highly recommend her if you're looking to board your dogs! Thank you Danica!
Danica and Ryan were the only ones willing to take Marvin because he was a pitbull. They sent me pictures and updates everyday during his stay, it was awesome. I highly recommend them and I will definitely be taking Marvin back when ever I have to leave town again.
This was my first time going out of town and using dog vacay. At first I was very nervous and uneasy but Danica assured me there was nothing to worry about before my trip. It was a very good experience and the random pictures of Milo were awesome! Milo seemed to have had a blast playing with Buddy. I will definitely be using them again. Thank you once again!!
Fabulous! Bitzy had a great time and was taken care of so well. Loved the doggie report card. Definitely will come back. Thank you!
Danica and her husband were wonderful! They took such great care of my German Shepard Penny! I swear PENNY misses them and their pups!! I will definitely be taking Penny to them next time!! Thank you Danica for taking good care of my pup!!
This is my first time using DogVacay, and I had a great experience. Danica was able to accommodate us very last minute. She was very quick with Her responses and got us booked right away. She sent pictures throughout our dogs visit. They were very nice people and I know Lula was loved! Would definitely book with Danica again!
Our dog is older and high anxiety. Danica did a great job taking care of our dogs with her special needs. We could tell when we returned that our dog had been happy and calm while we were gone. We will definitley use Danica again in the future.
