About Mary & Ashley

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and thank you for considering us to care for your much loved pup(s). We love and welcome all dog breeds. Please read below before making a reservation.

Maintaining a safe, relaxing, and stress-free environment for all of our guest pups is our first priority. Reservations will only be accepted after a meet & greet; vaccination records are current and verified; and a minimum of 3 nights.



OUR HOME & FAMILY: Our Dog Gorgeous resort is quaint and inviting. While you are away, your dog(s) vacation will be a home setting. All our guest dogs receive lots of love and playtime while staying with us. Our resident dogs, Aya and Ru are great activity coordinators. Giving the right amount of play, chase, tug-o-war, keep-away, hillside safaris, relaxing, and sleeping in the sun. Whatever your dog desires. They have full access to the house and a large back yard with a hill to run up and down.

Aya and Ru are both gentle giants. Aya is a Mix breed with all pounds of love. If you let her, she will smother you with cuddles and lots of kisses. Ru is a Neapolitan Mastiff working dog, K9 certified. She is, as many describe the “Queen Alpha”. Ru keeps the peace in the house with her governance in a calm spirit.

My husband Ashley provides private dog training. He has over 35 years of dog experience and building relationships. He and Ru are certified K9 & Handler. I am a proud mom to Aya and Ru. I would love to have more dogs to keep for my own, but reality keeps me at bay. For now, I will settle to enjoy the time I have with our dog guest(s).



MEET & GREET: A meet and greet with Aya and Ru is required to ensure all will be friends. Please note a meet and greet is available by scheduled appointments only. We usually meet at the Historic Town Center Park in San Juan Capistrano. A tour of the house can be the same day if copies of current vaccinations are available prior to the meeting. Otherwise, a tour of the house is by next available appointment and not on the day of drop offs.



RATE ENHANCEMENTS FOR SPECIAL ARRANGEMENTS: We can accommodate your most special pup(s). Please be aware that additional fees might be required after your instant booking confirmation reservation is finalized with DogVacay. Special attention is needed for dogs with extra hormones resulting in high temperament and behaviors (extra cleanup from excessive marking, destructive behavior, conflicts with other guests, etc.)

[ ] Males Not Neutered: Additional $25 per night.
[ ] Females Not Spayed: Additional $25 per night.
[ ] Females In Heat: Additional $35 per night.
[ ] Oral Medications Only: Additional $5 per dose.

[ ] Holiday Rate: Additional $15 per night.
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years



**************************************************

To Our Guest(s), Welcome!

Our home setting is an open space for all our pups to roam, play, and sleep wherever they want. Maintaining a safe, relaxing, and stress-free environment for all of our guest pups is our top priority.


HOUSE RULES:
We take care of your dog as if it is our own. To maintain a comfortable and relaxing doggie vacation home, there are only a few requirements for all of our furry guests:
• Must be current on all vaccines
• No aggressive dogs or heavy barkers
• Must be free of fleas, ticks, and mud
• Must have good manners
• Must be house-trained


CHECKLIST
[ ] Dog collar with tag (name + emergency contacts)
[ ] Leash, harness (if required)
[ ] Treated for fleas
[ ] Current vaccination records
[ ] Emergency contacts
[ ] Vet information
[ ] Food with feeding Instructions (amount/time)
[ ] A list of command words and gestures (known by your dog)


DROP OFF: Please let us know an estimated time and text or call when you are on your way to the house. Please do not ring the doorbell. We will meet you outside in the parking area. Extra time may be needed for a little walk with our dog(s), approximately 10-15 minutes. This is also a good time for hugs and wags good-bye. We will bring your dog inside along with his/her belongings.


PICK UP: Please let us know an estimated time and text or call when you are on your way to the house. Please do not ring the doorbell. We will bring your dog(s) out to your car with their belongings. This helps reduce any stress to other guests in our care.


ARRIVALS: Please remember to check in with Aya and Ru for the activity schedule, pantry access, and sleeping arrangements.


PLAYTIME: Playtime is always supervised. There is a risk of getting sores and scratches during playtime. We do our very best to make each guest comfortable. Even so, some dogs will be very anxious and nervous when they first visit and may take some time to accept their new friends and surroundings. Our guests may bring their own toys. However, be aware the toys may not return in their original condition (if at all).


ACTIVITY SCHEDULE
Morning: Breakfast, safari up the hill, game of catch, belly rubs, and a nap.

Afternoon: Snack (complimentary biscuits, carrots, apples and/or cheese), water games (TBD), wrestling, or a game of chase.

Evening: Dinner, play tug-a-war, cuddle time, and a movie.



Thank you,
Dog Gorgeous, Aya & Ru

My doggy baby found his new second doggy family! :) I love that Mary and Ashley know dogs and love dogs. The well being of all dogs are top priority for them. They sent pictures of my dog having fun daily which really put me at ease leaving him with someone new. He loved it there and I am happy to take him back when I need to again.

Mary & Ashely were AWESOME! They sent me the cutest pictures of my dog while I was away. When I picked her up, she was super calm, relaxed and I could tell she was so well taken care of. I highly recommend leaving your doggie with them.

Mary and Ashley took great care of our puppy over Christmas treating her like part of their family. Mary sent pictures and texts every day to keep us updated on all the fun our girl was having with Aya and Ru. We would highly recommend them ???
