About Paul

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a happy family in a single family house in the Richmond district of San Francisco. Ella and Kingsley have the run of the house. The entire back yard is covered in wood chips (with plant barrier) so they can play outside to their hearts' content. They seem to enjoy taking smaller logs from our woodpile and depositing them around the yard.

I work from home, so have good flexibility to be around the house with the pups with an open household and supervision throughout much of the day. We've got a very dog friendly car, and generally go to Fort Funston, Baker Beach, or Crissy Field a few times a week anyway, so if your pup likes the beach, he or she will have some great company. Kingsley and Ella behave really well off leash, so hopefully your dog will too, and they can romp to their hearts' content.

Both Kingsley and Ella are incredibly social and loving, and do really well with other animals. They definitely respect other dogs' personal space, but love to play when other dogs are willing.

Let me know if your pup needs training. Kingsley and Ella are great role models and together we can work on training if you or your pup are in need. Based on observation, Dogs that behave well seem to be the happiest!

Paul was a great host. Very friendly, and Harley came home tired, happy, and most importantly safe and sound!
Paul was great and super flexible! When I picked Linus up, Paul gave me a run down of the week. It assured me that he was very attentive to Linus and the other dogs he was caring for. Would book Paul again!
We needed a last minute sitter for our two pups and Paul was a life saver! Our pups absolutely loved him and his two fur babies, Kingsley and Ella.

Paul was extremely flexible with our pick-up and drop-off times, which made our travel that much more stress free. He was also very accommodating to their special needs, since they are both fed fresh foods.

Paul is great with dogs, seriously!! I will definitely be booking with him in the future :)
Paul is a great puppy host!!! We were out of town for 2 destinations back to back and left our 5 month old puppy to Paul's place. Paul has 2 role model puppies and fenced backyard. Nox looked happy in the pictures he sent us :) Thanks Paul!
Paul was awesome! Penny spent 8 days with him, Ella, and Kingsley and had a blast! I would recommend Paul to anyone looking for a place to house their pup when they head out of town!
Paul, Kingsley, and Ella were great hosts to Ollie! He came back to us absolutely exhausted, which is always a great thing :) Paul was very flexible in terms of our meet and greet, pick up and drop off times. We could tell that he devotes a lot of time to dogs - his house is basically a dog haven. He also shared training techniques to help Ollie stop jumping and other tidbits about beef bones (amazing).

Would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for a fun and stimulating environment for their dogs to stay in.
Cooper was nice and tired when he got back. Tons of activity in a loving home!
Paul was a wonderful sitter, and our dogs throughly enjoyed their stay. They played with his dogs all day and had a great time on their walks. Thanks for taking care of them!
Paul is an amazing dog sitter. My dog Ollie, always has an amazing time playing with his dogs and comes back pooped out. Couldn't recommend him more!
Paul, Ella & Kingsley were incredible hosts. This is Chewie's first Vacay and he had a blast. We are so grateful!
Frankie had a great time at Paul's house, and came back exhautsed and happy! Paul was extremely easy to communicate with and was so generous to take on Frankie so last minute. Thanks Paul!
Stussy has stayed with Paul many times and she's always had an amazing stay! Can't say enough about Paul! If your pup is staying with him, you're in good hands!
Jeez Louise was a very happy pooch when she came back. Paul was very flexible on the dropoff/pickup. Seamless process, would definitely recommend!
Paul's the best! My dog needs lots of exercise and he surely got it with almost daily long walks to the beach and Fort Funston. He also came back well behaved after spending time around Paul's awesome dogs. Paul sent updates to me frequently when I was traveling in Europe, so I always felt that Cowboy was in good hands. I'd recommend Paul highly!
Paul was easy to work with. While I was away, he kept me up to date about how my dog was doing and sent me lots of pictures.
Another great Dog Vacay for Oliver. Thanks so much!!
Awesome service, the dogs came back tuckered out and content, lots of picks and updates.
This was my first time using Dogvacay, and Paul was great! He accommodated my last minute request, scheduled a meet-n-greet in between us, and even came and picked up my pup to make it more convenient for my schedule. Got lots of pictures over the weekend and he found ways to warm up my antisocial dog to Ella and Kingsley. You can tell he loves dogs and is very devoted to caring for others' pets. I would definitely leave Malaika with Paul again!
Another great experience! I feel at ease leaving Oliver with Paul and his dogs - Ella and Kingsley. I actually feel like Oliver experiences his own vacation since they go on epic walks at Baker Beach and Fort Funston.
Paul was amazing with Scout. Not only did Scout have fun playing with Paul's pups, but he also got to enjoy a trip to the beach. The pictures from the day were adorable and show exactly why Scout slept the rest of the day after returning home!
We are always so happy with Paul & Marissa! They are our go-to hosts and we don't have to worry at all about Waffles while we're gone. She gets super excited when we pull up to their house, knowing she's going to have a great weekend and go on all sorts of adventures. They take amazing pictures and we know she has so much fun every time.
Terrific place, a home away from home for our dog. Highest recommendation.
Awesome as usual!!!
Another wonderful Dogvacay for our puggle, Oliver, at Paul and Marissa's. I never worry when Oliver is there, hanging out with Ella and Kingsley.
It was a great experience leaving Bubbles to vacation this past Thanksgiving with Paul and his crew! They were such a saviour doing a meet and greet earlier in the week and taking our reservation last minute. No kennel and a personal experience will keep me coming back. For the 5 days Bubbles was hanging out, they went on multiple day trips to the beaches and parks around the city too! I definitely recommend you book here if they have an opening.
Paul & Marissa were awesome! They took great care of our 9 month old Bernese. They also took her to the beach everyday and sent pictures to let us know how she was doing. We would definitely use them again.
Once again, Paul and Marissa (and Ella and Kingsley) took great care of Oliver. We got lots of pictures during the week that showed Oliver having fun. Thanks so much!
My labradoodle Waffles had another great stay with Paul and Marissa! This is our 2nd visit with them and we always feel so comfortable leaving her there. They are so great, took her last minute, and sent us pics of her having a great time.
Leo had a fantastic time with Paul and Marissa! I was very nervous at first as I have never done Dogvacay and am a first time dog owner. Paul sent photos on the first day and all my fears were gone. He had taken his 2 dogs and Leo to the beach and it looked like they were having so much fun. I know Leo was spoiled a bit with yummy treats and home-made bones. He even gave us one to take home. I will definitely take use them again.
Paul and Marissa are amazing! They were so great to take in my labradoodle Waffles for a last minute weekend trip. Waffles had a great time with them and with their adorable dogs, and they sent us a bunch of pics so I knew she was in good hands and having a fantastic time at the park and beach. They even gave me some yummy treats to take home since she had loved them so much. I would absolutely recommend them, as would Waffles!
We left our Puggle, Oliver, with Paul and Marissa for a long weekend and they took great care of him. We got photos of Oliver with Kingsley and Ella throughout the four days. Plus, Paul makes gourmet beef bones that Oliver really liked chewing on!

In fact, Oliver seemed a bit lonely once when we brought him home - seems he missed his buddies. :-)
Paul and Marissa were incredible hosts to my two pups! I was scrambling a few days before a weekend trip to find a good host for my boys and was so relieved when they agreed to let them stay on such short notice with them and their adorable dogs, Kingsley and Ella. I had a great experience with them, from the initial meet 'n greet request to the moment Paul dropped them off after my trip. I received plenty of photos of my little ones prancing on the beach and enjoying their time with their new doggy friends and receiving text updates about their stay really helped me to enjoy my trip knowing they were in good hands. I would absolutely recommend Paul and Marissa as hosts. Thanks, guys!
