About Callie

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I LOVE dogs! I have a home in Silver Lake/Los Feliz and would love to care for your pup while you are away or at work! I work from home, so I am home most, if not all of the day. I have a fairly large fully fenced yard with a lawn and a deck for sun bathing and playing. I can take your dogs on walks in my neighborhood and can also easily visit the Silver Lake dog park one mile away.

I grew up with many pets, we once had 2 dogs, 4 cats, birds, and a bunny all at once! My grandmother worked at a veterinary hospital and I started volunteering there at the age of 8. I then worked at a few other hospitals into adulthood. I have become the "go to" person for my friends in the LA area who have pets that need care while their owners are away.

I desperately want a dog of my own, but I travel for extended periods of time over the holiday break, and don't think it would be fair to commit to full time dog ownership just yet. I miss dogs in my life but think Dog Vacay is a perfect remedy for both you as an owner and myself as a dog lover!

*All rates are for a 24hr stay. If your stay is over 24 hrs, I can send you a custom rate! :)

**All dogs must have current vaccinations, FLEA free and medicated, and be fully house trained (puppies on a case by case basis).

***If your dog doesn't play well with others in the home (not just at the dog park), please let me know so I can assess if I can take your pet!

****If you need your dog to be the only guest, please message for different rates.

Past Reviews!!!:

'We were so afraid to leave our little pup for the first time. It was really important that we find the right person and place. When Kiwi met Callie and visited her for the first time, we knew we struck gold! This was an amazing fit! Kiwi was immediately comfortable and HAPPY with Callie and at her home (in fact, she pulls us to the door whenever we take her to Callie's now.) We really couldn't have asked for a more perfect sitter. Callie sent us great updates with cute photos and we just knew that Kiwi was in good hands. They went on great walks and had fun adventures together. We will not hesitate to ask Callie to watch our pup again!!" - Genevieve, owner of Kiwi, 4

"Our little dog Kiwi, featured on the photo above as the little brown dot, was very lucky to get to stay with Callie for two weeks while we were away in europe. Callie and Kiwi get along great and so we had zero worries leaving her for such a long time. Callie sent us hilarious photo updates and when we came back, we picked up a healthy, happy dog. We'll entrust Callie with Kiwi anytime again!" - Pascal, owner of Kiwi, 4

"Callie was incredibly attentive and gentle with our black lab/greyhound mix Isabelle. She kept us updated with photos and took Isabelle on fantastic walks and she loved running around Callie's giant backyard. Isabelle was well taken care of and loved her weekend adventure. When I came to pick her up she was snoring on a blanket and I could barely get her to wake up! I trust Callie implicitly to take care of Isabelle and I'll definitely be using her again in the future." - Danielle, owner of Belle, 13

Callie was an awesome host!!! Our 1 year old puppy looked like he had a great time staying with her. He really enjoyed the fenced in yard and came back a tired boy. Callie made sure to send us lots of pictures and videos, and even sent us three professional looking pictures at the end of his stay. All in all, a great host and would recommend to anyone!
Callie was great!!! Tons of updates and cool under pressure
My dog Louie and I had a great boarding experience with Callie!! From the second he was in the house he was exploring her huge, awesome yard. Great frequency of photos, I never felt out of the loop the whole time I was out of town.

Louie can't wait to go back!!
Callie is the best. I can't think of a better place for Ollie my small dog to be. Callie took so much loving care of my little dog every time when he is with her. Throughout the day I get a few pictures and can see how he is just enjoying dog-heaven. On top of it, Callie has a beautiful garden where Ollie can play and roll around in the grass. All communication with Callie has been so easy and kind. Big thank you to Callie.
I don't even know where to begin with our beloved Weimaraner's 2 'vacations' with Callie. He adores her! We have a 3 year old Weim that is a handful. He's energetic and a velcro dog (loves to be attached to you at all times). We've never taken him to a kennel, because it simply wasn't possible.

But, we found Callie!! Callie is truly loving, attentive and 'gets' each dog's individual needs and personality. She will never have a huge pack, because she is so incredibly conscious about each dog being given its own attention.

Grayson has spent almost 3 weeks with Callie on 2 occasions and he RUNS to her front door when we arrive at her lovely home.

We could get teary talking about Callie and her love of our puppy. We received videos, photos and updates daily. She is truly the perfect caregiver to one of the most important members of our family!
We love Callie!!!! She was so sweet and loving to our sensitive chihuahua mix. We rarely leave our dog and I am very particular about who I leave her with, but I would recommend Callie to anyone. Callie treats your baby just like one of her own!! And she sends the best photo and video updates!! She has an awesome yard and any dog would love her home. Callie is trustworthy and pays attention to details. I gave her specific medical instructions and she was diligent in paying attention to our dogs needs. You can tell she was paying attention to our dog and she totally put the neurotic dog owner in me at ease. She made sure our baby was cozy and safe, but also had a great time. Our dog slept for hours after coming back from her fun time at Callie's. Callie is truly awesome and I would recommend her to anyone.
Leaving town and finding someone to watch my two little dogs is never an easy task, and I have realized I am incredibly picky when it comes to dog sitter. After meeting Callie and watching her interact with my two dogs, I felt so comfortable and knew she was the real deal who is responsible and nurturing. My male dog doesn't warm up to people that quickly, but Callie had a magic touch and he was won over big time.

My dogs had the best time at Callie's. Not only is she very loving and caring for our dogs, but she also has a giant back yard that our dogs loved! I honestly think they were a little depressed to come home after such an awesome time with Callie. It is the biggest relief knowing that I have found someone who I can count on to take the best care of my dogs for the future as well. I would highly recommend Callie, and will definitely be booking her for future trips!
Callie was truly the perfect Host for our little guy, Eddie. If there were a way to give 10 Stars, Callie would have earned them all.

Without giving too many great details of her services (in fear of having Callie booked all year round) ...

Callie showed love and understanding of our Dog's personality right away during our meet and greet. Walking in to her house, our whole family knew that the space was perfect for Eddie and he would feel right at home.

Dropping Eddie off was a breeze. He was already familiar with Callie and the space and took to the house like it was his own.

During Eddie's stay, Callie updated us with amazing photos and videos. To say the least Eddie was in heaven and we looked forward to all of our updates.

Callie is a loving, passionate and super easy going Host and really made Eddie feel at home during his stay. We could not have been happier!
We dropped off our pup to Callie's house which is just adorable. Callie asked all the right questions which made us feel very safe. We got cute picks of our pup playing in the back yard and going on fun walks. I hate being that California dog person who treats their dog like a kid but we do and Callie made the whole experience easy.
Callie was amazing! She had a nice big yard and my dog Wyatt had a blast. He came home nice and tired! Pick up and drop off were very easy and I received some really great photos throughout the day. I highly recommend and would be happy to book again soon
Leaving your dog is never easy. After meeting 3 other potential boarders, I was nervous to send my dog to a new person for an entire week.

When I dropped my Husky off at Callie's, I was so relieved! Callie sent tons of updates, was a great communicator, and went above and beyond- buying treats and toys.

The videos she sent of our usually sleepy dog running around the backyard put me at ease! When we picked her up she was so calm, it was almost as if she didn't want to leave.

I will definitely be taking our dog back to Callie!
Callie took extremely good care of our 10year old yorkie. Our dog has lots of quirks and weird needs that Callie understood and attended too. She sent us photos/videos and updates that made us feel secure about her well being. She has a spacious backyard that is enclosed for the dogs to explore and play. She even played ball with her. I will definitely use Callie's services again!!
