About Denise

I am a doctoral candidate who works from home and will enthusiastically welcome your furry family members into my home with love and great care.

A recent article in the news on the study on of the emotions of dogs stated: "because humans, in effect, created dogs through domestication, the canine mind reflects back to us how we see ourselves through the eyes, ears, and noses of another species." I see myself not only a student seeking a way to supplement my income, but as an individual with patience, compassion, and an understanding of the spirit of dogs, and it is for that reason that those that become part of my life find in me a source of comfort. For this reason, I believe the bond and relationship I will nurture with your pet will mutually benefit the two of us; my care will for them will fulfill their needs, and I will rewarded with a kinder day full of love and smiles.

I live close to several parks, walking paths, and the beach. I regularly walk or jog to the beach, and have a backyard with plenty of room for play for your furry family member. As I have no pets of my own, your pet(s) will receive my love and attention as they were my own.

Also, I am fairly flexible, and willing to make special accommodations for my guests.

We always looked forward to having Denise watch Loki while we were away :)
Denise did a great job watching and taking care of our dog, Elle. She asked about her specific dietary and social needs, and what we loved most was that she sent us very regular picture and email updates. Overall, we felt confident that Elle was well cared for while we were out of town.

This is Lennon's second stay with Denise and as usual Lennon had a blast. Denise was so great with her, and sent us lots of cute videos. She came back worn out and happy!
Once again, Denise is the BEST!!!
I would definitely recommend Denise. She is trustworthy and is very good with dogs. I left for my vacation knowing that my dog was in good hands and I was right.
Denise is amazing. Pi loves her, we love her. She goes above and beyond always.
Denise is great! We have never before had a place to leave our dogs where they seemed to want to go. Highly recommended.
Foz had an awesome time at Denise's place. His stay was a little over two weeks and she made him feel right at home. Denise sent me daily pics or videos of him on walks or playing with the other dogs. Denise is great with dogs, and I would definitely have her watch Foz in the future.

Couldn't ask for more than Denise G. She has taken care of my boys twice now and the environment and care is great.
Denise was fantastic!! I'm so happy she was able to take care of Ghost, and she kept me updated with lovely photos and videos of my baby. 5 stars, no doubt!
Denise is wonderful! I know why she has so many return customers and great reviews. She is truly a calm, caring, level headed dog person. She took Nya and her pack on walks, played ball and took incredible care of our 2 y/o girl. Nya was exhausted when we brought her home and slept for hours on the back patio. And, I can't forget to mention the video and all the adorable pix she sent to us as well! Extremely nice of her to do this!
Thanks for everything Denise!!

Denise was SO amazing. I was a worried dog mommy leaving my puppy for the first time for a week. I got so many great updates and videos, and she even bought Lennon a new toy. She totally spoiled Lennon and I felt so reassured. Denise is great with dogs, and has a great energy. It was also a bonus that Lennon slept for about 2 days after we picked her up. She definitely had a great vacation!

Denise was great. My dog gets separation anxiety and did not with Denise. I could tell when I picked her up she had a good time. She was really happy. Good experiance. I will always use her.
Denise was awesome! It was our first time leaving Phil with a non-family member/friend, and we couldn't have been more pleased. She is clearly a dog lover, knowledgable, and trustworthy. She sent pictures, texts, and video throughout the entire weekend that we were away. I'm so happy to have found someone that we can trust our pet with when we're out of town.

5 STARS !!!!!
Denise is Fantastic with dogs, and an Amazing person !
She is unbelievably attentive and caring -- both with the dogs and owners.
Thanks to Denise, we now have more videos and photos of our dogs in 5 days than we had taken ourselves in 5 years.
Pretty sure the dogs came away from their time with Denise as better people too !
Can't say enough about Denise -- she's GREAT!

Denise went above and beyond for Monty's stay with her! I found her at the very last minute (thankfully) and she lives in A HOUSE in LA! which was a huge upgrade from my one bedroom for Monty. She was very very responsive, I'd say it took her about 30 seconds to respond to each of my messages on dogvacay (and even quicker by text).

Monty has a lot of issues with dogs, but Denise probably doesn't believe me because with her it seems like all his issues are resolved. He played with dogs at her home, listened to her, even followed her around the house! Go figure, i thought Jindos were loyal to their owners, but i guess he's crazy about Denise:)

Denise also texted me A LOT throughout the day, sending tons of photos, videos, and updates. She also detected behavioral problems that I wasn't aware of!

I cannot believe I found a dogsitter this amazing, accommodating, flexible, and kind/patient with my dog (who can be a handful) at the very last minute. I just wanted a safe place for Monty to be during the day, and I got way more than I asked for. Thank you again Denise! (Needless to say I booked Denise as soon as his stay was over for the next two days.)

Denise is amazing. I can't even believe how lucky we are to have found her. Pi had the greatest time at her home and we got constant photos and updates. I felt 100% confident in her ability to take care of Pi and can't wait for Pi to have her next vacation with Denise. Not only did she take care of her, she also wanted to make sure Pi - who is a 7 month old puppy - had a blast and was pampered!!!

Our first experience with DogVacay couldn't have gone any better! We left Loki with Denise for 8 nights and we were worried that he'd be sad and just mope around while we were gone. But from the first minute we were at Denise's house, Loki already felt at home.

Denise took him on long walks & trips to the beach, played with him, and sent videos & pictures to us every day to show us how much fun he was having.

Will definitely book with Denise again :)

Trooper stayed with Denise many times and always has a great stay! Denise follows up with tons of text updates and we love it. Her house and yard is super dog friendly. Highly recommend Denise for your next pup's vacation!
Denise is fantastic. Not only did she treat our dogs great, but she sent lots of photos/videos so we could see them while we were gone. When we returned, we could see how relaxed our dogs were at Denise's house. We will definitely use Denise again, and would recommend her to others.

Again, we are so happy with Denise's personal care for our dog Bennie. He has become a member of her family and we so appreciate the love and attention they give him. When he comes home he is calm and relaxed and just himself. For us, his demeanor says a lot about his care.

We feel so lucky to have Denise on call as our #1 dogsitter. She always keeps us updated on their news/issues and I think she really enjoys taking care of them, which is the best possible arrangement. She is a great dogsitter as she customizes her day to give the dogs special one-on-one time and long walks according to their energy level. This time she was fast to react to a sore spot on our Dog's nose and took him immediately to the vet.

Denise really loves dogs, and Stanley greets her with a big wag of his tail.
Denise was wonderful! She was great at keeping in touch and letting us know how our pup was doing, sending videos and photos daily.
Coda really loved staying with her and meeting the other pups she was caring for. We look forward to having him vacation at Denise's in the future.

Nutmeg had a great time at Denise's house and adjusted nicely to the whole environment. Denise was truly attentive and made this first experience away from home very fun and comfortable for our dog.
Denise is caring and attentive to animals, and a great communicator with people. This was our pup's 3rd stay with Denise, this time for a week while we were traveling. Denise sent us daily photo and video updates of our pup playing in her big backyard and going for walks. Our pup is always happy and healthy when we pick him up, and Denise is very accommodating with pick-up/drop-off times. She's a real gem. Thanks Denise!

Denise is an amazing person and an incredible sitter for our puppy. She treats Brix as if she were her own each and every time. She is amazing at following whatever 'rules' we have for Brix and even can administer medicines. She is so good at sending photos and updates via email or text so that we can see our little one and enjoy some of her adventures from afar. I would highly recommend Denise to take care of your puppy any time and you can rest easy that she/he will be in capable and loving hands.

We had an unexpected family event to attend in Northern Cal this past weekend. Since we met Denise and had set up a future reservation for early January we called her to see if she could take our Bennie for a last minute overnight. She agreed and we couldn't be happier with Bennie's care. Denise sent photos and videos of Bennie's first stay and he looked happy and relaxed. After returning home, he was content and happy. We are so glad that we found Denise. Dog Vacay is professional, caring and really sincere about their client's satisfaction.

Denise is the BEST and I mean the BEST. She is so in-tuned with animals and truly cares about them. Besides my husband and I, Denise is our Pup's favorite person. Our girl is a rescue and can be a bit unsure or timid around many people. Not with Denise!!!! When we get to her house- Tuesday jumps out of the car and races to her front door. She sometimes doesn't want to come home :). Denise is great about taking the pups on long walks, giving extra special attention and keeps us updated while we are away. We could not have been more blessed to have found Denise.

Denise is a Godsend! I don't know if I've ever met a kinder, more caring dog-lover! My boyfriend and I needed someone to watch our two Shih Tzus this weekend and we made a very last-minute booking on Dogvacay. We couldn't have been happier with Denise! We were nervous taking our dogs to someone unfamiliar, especially as our newest, Daisy, is a rescue dog with a lot of separation anxiety and fear of strangers. But Denise was so caring and good with Daisy that she quickly bonded with her! The best part was that Denise sent us tons of photos and VIDEOS of our dogs throughout the weekend, which made me and my boyfriend sooo happy. We loved seeing what good care our dogs were getting, and the fun they seemed to be having. We look forward to sending our dogs to Denise from now on when we have to go out of town- she is simply the BEST!

Denise is dependable, professional, and friendly. Our pup loves to play at her house! She was very accommodating to our last-minute request for doggy day care. We have trusted our pup to Denise in the past, continue to book for the future, and warmly recommend her to any future furry guests.

Thanks Denise!

Denise took wonderful care of Jessie and Zena while we were out of town for a week. She sent us frequent updates and photos which showed our girls having a great time with Denise and with her other doggy guests. She has the perfect house and yard for a doggy vacation. Watching her interact with the dogs, she clearly loves them. I look forward to future vacays for Jessie and Zena with Denise!

Denise was amazing. She took care of our dogs like they were her own. We would use her again definitely
Denise was awesome. Charger had a great time and I will definitely use her services again. She really knows and cares about dogs!
We have left our dog with Denise for multiple stays now and we are always confident that Denise will not only take great care of Minnie, but go above and beyond the duties of the typical doggie sitter. We now have the freedom to plan trips and not have to worry about our "little" one.

Denise is a blessing! While we traveled out of town for nine days, our border terrier, Hamilton, was having the time of his life! Denise's home is spacious, cool, and doggy-proof. Her large fenced-in backyard is grassy and shaded, with room for dogs to run and play while being supervised. Denise often had a couple well-behaved furry guests, which gave Hamilton plenty of opportunity to socialize and play. Denise sent us daily updates and happy photos of Hamilton, which made being away from our pooch a little easier -- in fact, we started referring to it as 'Denise's Doggy Disneyland'! When it came time to take Hamilton home, he was happy, healthy, and calm. What more could you ask for? Thanks Denise!

Denise was fantastic! She went above and beyond with my 2 ridgebacks. She has a perfect house and fenced yard, but also took them on walks. It was our first time using Dogvacay but we felt comfortable after seeing her reviews. We even tried to use her the following weekend but she was booked. If you want a conscientious, kind dog sitter Denise is the one!! We will definitely use her again.

Denise is a bonafide dog lover... and she loved caring for my dog. My dog had a wonderful time and isn't that what we are looking for? Will definitely use her in the future.
Denise is a great dog sitter! I was extremely nervous about leaving my slightly high maintenance (nervous, not great with other dogs, etc) dog for almost 2 weeks while I took a vacation. Denise is very aware of how nervewracking it can be to leave your pup, and she is great about sending picture and text updates everyday. She is very communicative and obviously loves caring for dogs. I feel totally at ease leaving my dog with her, and I will be using her again!

Denise was amazing with Pandora and Jasper! The daily (and sometimes hourly) photo updates were fantastic. While I love traveling with my dogs, it is wonderful to know that when I need to leave town and cannot take them with me they have a fantastic place to stay filled with ball chasing, frisbee, attention, and love! I recommend Denise highly to the DogVacay community.

Our dog, Minnie, always has an amazing time with Denise. In particular, Denise provides an excellent environment for our dog who is training to become a therapy dog. Whenever Denise is taking care of multiple dogs, she takes extra care to make sure the dogs meet in a neutral manner and that everyone is taken care of. My wife and I like that Denise sends multiple photos throughout the stay. Minnie loves playing in her yard and sleeping on the cool tile floor in her home. Most importantly, Minnie comes home a happy and healthy dog.

Denise was a wonderful and caring Host for my 7 month old Golden/Doodle, AJ!! I was gone for ten days and every day I would receive a number of great photos of the vacation AJ was having with Denise. She took him everywhere she went and it was obvious he loved every minute of his travels, whether to the Dog Park, to the Pier, Abbott Kinney or just the neighborhood. My son, Jack, was afraid he wouldn't want to come home! But home he is and I thank Denise for making my vacation worry free by taking such good care of our Boy, AJ. I would recommend her as a great Host!

Denise was great! She really made me feel comfortable about leaving my little guy with her, and she sent me regular photos to keep me updated on how much fun they were having. She has a great place for dogs as well. She will be getting more reservations from me in the future!

Denise is amazing. She is caring, responsive, and overall a great care taker. Brix has loved her first two stays with Denise and is looking forward to her third next week!

Denise even took care of Brix when she got something stuck in her paw during one of their walks, giving her hot compresses and monitoring her health.

I would highly recommend Denise and her services. Brix loves the walks, runs, cuddling, and time to chance the squirrels in the back yard. :)

Bodhi loved staying with Denise! Her house and backyard was a perfect place for him to hang out and play... and the daily updates and pictures we received from her really put our minds at ease while we were away from home. We highly recommend her and will definitely be using her services again soon. Bodhi can't wait!! Thanks Denise :)

Denise is AWESOME. I felt totally comfortable leaving Buddy with her. She sincerely cared for his well being and gave Buddy lots of attention! I'm so happy that I don't have to worry when we plan our next vacation bc I've found someone so responsible and caring!

Denise watched our little dog Beaker for 1 week and did a fantastic job. We got updates daily of how our pup was doing. It was hard for us to leave our dog but Denise made me feel very confident that she would take good care of Beaker and I was totally at ease while we were away.

Denise was awesome and I would leave my Shiba Inu, Stella, with her again in a heartbeat. She was very accommodating when I had to extend Stella's stay last minute and with late night drop off/pick up. It was really easy to communicate with her as she was very responsive with DogVacay messages or through text and calls. Aside from the DogVacay photo updates, she also sent me daily pictures and text messages to tell me how my puppy was doing. Although Denise had a big, secure backyard where Stella was free to roam, she still took her on long walks three times a day. Stella stayed with her for a week and a half and I could tell that she received 24/7 attention. Denise took really good care of Stella and she definitely made my vacation worry-free.
