About Roberto

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

We would love to have your dog stay in our home while you are away. Our home is situated in the Santa Cruz Mountains on the border between Los Gatos and Santa Cruz. We have a 5 Acre property that is mostly fenced. We also have a large gated deck for your dog to enjoy some fresh air.

Your dog would spend it's day inside our home and would be treated as our family pet. Restroom breaks as often as needed and a walk in the morning and afternoon. Additional play time is possible too.

I split my time between telecommuting and driving into the office. My wife would care for your dog if I am in the office.

We previously owned a wonderful Golden Retriever for 8 years. We love Goldens and dogs in general.

You would receive daily picture updates.

We would coordinate drop off / pick up at the entrance of our gated private road.

Our home is situated in the Santa Cruz mountains, so the initial drop off or meet and greet is a little more work to coordinate. Subsequent drop off's will be much easier.

Rest assured that your pet will be well taken care of while you are away.

[Note: we may charge extra for puppies, larger dogs or special requirements.]

Roberto and his wife,

Ones again came to our rescue! We had to go out of town and the only person we truly trust with all our heart, is them.
Our precious baby was very well cared from the beginning, with an early pick up from our house.
They contact us to make sure if he had his breakfast. They are so attentive to the smallest detail and perceptive to our stress in leaving town.
We are so appreciate to Roberto's constant communication and pictures to ease our heart in how much we miss our little baby boy.

From the deepest of our heart our family thank you for your great care, and love you provide to us.

You guys are so special.

The Zurn Family : )

Ps: Wick miss you guys
Our two pups stayed with Roberto and his family for two weeks while we were out town. This was the longest time we were away from them so we were a little nervous but Roberto sent us pictures of our dogs everyday, which was very comforting. Roberto and his family are super nice and very accommodating. The dogs looked happy, comfortable and free to roam about their big house. We would definitely leave our dogs with Roberto again. Thank you Roberto!
Roberto and his wife took great care of Aya and sent us a lot of pictures!

Without you our trip was not going to be possible. Thank you for providing us the trust and peace of mind in leaving our baby in your care. Your love and kindness for our dog was so transparent. Which you did give us the confidence we needed to let you care for one of the most precious family member we have.
Our family is truly thankful for your outspend service.

Warm wishes to the next time.

We are so appreciative for the incredible care you provide for our baby. Thank your for your constant contact given us the peace of mind. The picture you send us warmed our hearts. To see our baby happy, eating good and playing made us relax to enjoy our trip. That would not have been possible without you two. The transition back home was amazing he was the same happy dog that we left with you.
We 100% percent recommend you to our friends and family without any hesitation.
We a truly thankful for your help with our family and looking for leave him again in peace to our future trips when is not possible to bring him with us.

Roberto and his wife were wonderful hosts! They were so kind and considerate and sent all kinds of pictures. They took wonderful care of our baby dog.
Robert took incredible care of my fur baby, Sass! I received photos daily during my trip of her hanging out, playing catch, and relaxing. She has morning and evening pills that she takes every day and Robert was able to tackle this with ease. Sass was in great hands! I would highly recommend booking with Robert.
Patient, gentle and caring! From beginning to end....Polar had an amazing time with Roberto and his wife. Great communication! . Wonderful experience, definitely will take him there again!!! Thank you Roberto for making all of our experiences enjoyable.
We are very pleased with Roberto and his family. From the meet & greet to the actual boarding of our dog, we felt quite comfortable with the flexibility, communication flow, responsiveness, personality, their attention to our dog and the frequent updates and photos we got along the time they looked after our dog. Definitively our best option for when we need to board our dog again. Couldn't be happier and feeling so much at ease.
Our dogs loved staying with Robert! It's clear that they got LOADS of attention and spent plenty of time outside playing. My wife and I received daily photos of our dogs and felt very comfortable with the level of care given to them. We are happy that we've found an awesome caregiver "in the neighborhood" - going out of town will no longer be stressful! We know our two pups will be happy to return to Robert's house!
I boarded 2 of my pups (a pom and a chi) with Robert and his wife for a whole week, and they took really great care of them. Robert is very responsive, he replied to my inquiries and messages almost within the hour, every time. He also sent me lots of pics of my pups on a daily basis and provided updates on how they were doing. When the dog food that I had packed for the stay ran out, Robert picked one up from the store. They are just really pleasant people and very professional. They are big dog lovers and I can tell that they really cared for my pups and enjoyed hosting them. My dogs came home happy and healthy. It has been a really pleasant experience and I would definitely choose them again next time I need to leave town.
They did a great job, giving my dog lots of attention. A great fit if you aren't looking for a completely fenced yard and your pet is extremely well trained.
