About Thuy

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*24/7 QUALITY care over quantity is my motto. My house is located in PARKMERCED area across from SF State University (grass heaven for doggies)!!!
I am definitely a dog lover/whisperer at heart and will love your dog as if they are my own! I am a proud dog mom to Mickey (chihuahua/min pin mix) who is around 14 years old. I have had Mickey since I was 16 in high school (I am 28 now), so I have had lots of experience in taking care of and loving a dog. I have watched Mickey grow from an energetic young dog to a reserved senior old man. He is now on 4 different medications and a specific diet, so I have experience in administering meds with a specific food in a way that he loves. Adjusting to a dog's needs is definitely my specialty.

We live in the parkmerced area of SF, where it is super dog-friendly with tons of grass for the pups to run around and mark territory. On a daily basis, Mickey and I hang out, eat, play, cuddle, and take walks with 3 different neighbors' dogs for fun (free) already, so I would like to try and see if I can do this for a living part time since it brings us so much joy throughout the day. I have dealt with all types of behaviors with dogs at different ages, such as puppy fever, senioritis, separation anxiety, and agression (with food, other dogs, kids, etc.).

I am currently a master's biology graduate student, no longer have to take anymore classes, and am just busy writing my thesis at home the entire day, so I have lots of time on my hands to hang out with doggies 24/7. I can tend to their needs all day, and basically will not leave their side. AND I love taking dog photos and videos, so you will receive a bunch!

Thuy is nothing short of FANTASTIC with my baby! He spends many days with her; studying, walking, going to lab, hanging out. She noticed one day that Max was home alone, so she asked if he could come over during the day and hang out with her and her dog. I gave her a key to my apartment and he's been with her almost everyday since. She actually spends time with most of the dogs in our neighborhood.

She's gentle and kind and I would trust her with my baby any time. If anything were to happen to me, I would want my Max to go and live with Thuy.

Thuy is the greatest! She sent dozens of photos and videos every day. I got daily stories about my pup's adventures with Mickie (Thuy's dog) and everyone they hung out with in the neighborhood. Amazing 24hr/day TLC. Thank you so much Thuy. We'll be booking again soon :)
We're first time DogVacay users and are more than happy with our experience with Thuy. She loves dogs and is very much a dog whisperer. She looked after our two mixed terriers (rescue dogs) Rex and Rue with such love and care. Thuy’s a grad student so much of her work is done at home so she’s always with our dogs.

Rue has never been overnight at anyone's home or boarding shelter so we were a bit anxious about how she would react to being left for four nights at a stranger's home.

A few days prior to our Vacay dates, we arranged a "meet & greet" with both dogs with Thuy, her dog Mickey and roommate Theresa. Thuy lives by SFSU and lives in an ideal situation for dog lovers at a large grass courtyard with various units surrounding it.

One of the best part of this situation is that Thuy's neighbors have a mix of small dogs that Rex and Rue enjoyed playing with each day. Rex loves playing with other dogs and Rue is more reserved but found another dog she connected with.

Thuy took both our dogs for long walks and also connected with them so much that Rue was on her back asking for tummy rubs which she never does with people she's not familiar with. Both dogs had a variety of options to sleep in Thuy's spacious apartment including cuddling in Thuy's bed too.

We also loved that she sent us tons of video and photo by text message so we can enjoy Rue & Rex's experience while we were on our trip.

Thuy really connected with both Rue & Rex and made their stay so loving and welcoming. We're already booking another Vacay for them in November with Thuy while we take off for a Tahoe weekend.
Highly recommend Thuy T. for your DogVacay experience. We feel so lucky to have found her.
