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.
'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
