About Tina

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are experienced pet owners who take a loving and compassionate approach to pet care. We sympathize with the worries, and concerns that arise with having to board, that's why we're dedicated to treating your pet with the same love, attention, and care that we give to our own pup. We have extensive experience with caring for both terminally ill dogs, and cats. You can rest assure that your pet will be taken care of by seasoned trustworthy pet veterans! Rates for LARGE DOGS, PUPPIES, & HOLIDAYS are listed at the bottom of the page.

A typical stay for your pup would include lots of fun, exercise and outdoor activities mixed with lazy snuggling down time. We live close to Runyon Canyon, and some awesome dog parks so your pup will definitely enjoy some quality off leash time, unless a special health condition applies. Your pup is guaranteed to get a minimum of four daily strolls throughout the lovely tree lined grassy streets in our West Hollywood neighborhood. Evenings are generally the time when Rya (our mellow and sweet black lab), and pet guests are snuggled in between us on the couch getting lots of head, and belly rubs, or engaged in playing with their toys, and each other.

If you prefer to have your pup stay in the comforts of your home, we can offer a sitting service, or drop-in visits throughout the day.

We LOVE cats too!!! And we'd be delighted to visit your kitty while you're away to make sure that he/she has fresh water, food, a clean cat box, and lots of play and love! We had a terminally ill kitty whom we nurtured till old age so we're extremely experienced with administering oral medicine, and a liquid diet to cats with special needs.

Thanks so much for considering us with the very important responsibility of caring for your pet. We look forward to playing, and snuggling with them!

Tina, Shaun, & Rya

Tina and Shaun are just amazing! My dog Bean had the best time with them, and I trust her to their care without reservation (which is saying a lot, Bean is my precious baby, after all!) They know dogs, their place is dog heaven and I am so thrilled & relieved to have found such great sitters. Highly recommend.

Absolutely the best! I never ever worry when Walter is with the gang at Tina's!
The best there is! Walter can't wait to get to Tina's place every time we pull up! She send emails with photos every day and is super responsive, organized and caring. We are so incredibly grateful we found her!
Dog Vacay seems to have an error. I've left no fewer than 5 or 6 reviews for Tina. She is great. But for some reason I am suppose to leave a review every time? This is silly. Tina is great every time. I love her! I will always bring my dog back to her.

Tina is super awesome! She takes the time to understand how to best make your dog feel right at home. She will send a couple of updates each day with tons of funny pics and a paragraph on how your dog is doing and what activities they did for the day. Can't say enough good things...We've used her about 6 or 7 times now and not once did she miss a check in update.

There are few people in this world I would trust my pup with and I couldn't feel more lucky to have found Tina. She kept me updated daily with photos via email and made the whole experience enjoyable. I know Lou had an amazing time and I only hope that she will have him back if/when I have to leave town again... So grateful to have found her.

Very understanding, sent lots of updates.
Tina and Shaun were wonderful sitters for my cat (I don't have a dog). Shaun came by twice a day to feed and play with him; they seemed to form a bond while I was out. He was very communicative which is important to me because I'm a nervous pet owner. I'll definitely work with them again!

The best sitter we've ever had! - Dungey and Tink
Tina is incredible! I felt very comfortable leaving my pup with her. She sent pics and email updates twice a day! She was great.
I highly recommend Tina. She is very thorough and takes such good care of my dog Lucy, when I'm out of town.
Awesome! As always!!!!
Tina was great looking after our energetic pup. Thanks!
Best dog sitter! Professional and responsible! We've been used other dog sitter too on dog vacay, but no one as good as Tina!
Tina is awesome! She is the best dog sitter we ever have on dog vacay! She is nice and responsible! She sent hundreds of photos of my babies everyday, and she walked them few times a day, can't find anyone better than Tina again!
I was very impressed from the moment I met Tina. She is very professional and a very loving doggie sitter. Frida, my Boston Terrier, returned home after 10 days of being with Tina, as never before. Frida was very happy and she did not give me the “cold treatment” hahahaha that she use to do when she came back home in the past when I left her with the other sitters. This time Frida actually looked relaxed, happy and was more obedient. Tina sent me several pics and videos daily along with stories about Frida’s activities, making my days away from her, more relaxed and confident that Frida was having a good time. This feeling made me concentrate freely while on my job. I highly recommend Tina if you would like to have peace of mind that your dog is being treated well and with tons of love.

Thanks Tina!!! Brooklyn had the best time as she always does!
Second time Luna stayed with Tina and she felt like home. Tina kept me posted throughout the stay and Luna had a blast with other dogs!
wonderful care as ever from Tina! Mr. Leroi came home happy, healthy, and tired out from all the fun:
Dewey had a blast while staying with Shaun and Tina! He enjoyed a few days of socializing with other dogs, he had an afternoon at the park, and went on several walks with his new puppy friends. Tina kept me updated several times a day with reports on Dewey's stay, complete with photos! I'll definitely reach out to them again for future dog boarding needs.

So glad we have Tina to take care of Brook when we are away! Not sure what we would do without!
Tina is the best Brooklyn always has the best time!!
Couldn't be happier with our experience having Tina and Shaun watch our girl, Scout, while we were away for the weekend.

They insisted on duplicating, by the numbers, our daily regimen for Scout, including her meds.

We got constant updates by email with pics and video that showed us how Scout's initial anxiety melted away with the constant care and attention from Tina and Shaun.

Many, many thanks, Tina and Shaun. We no longer have any doubts about what we will do with Scouty if we have to leave town without her.

Tina is the best!!! She had Luna for a weekend and not only she accepted her last minute, which I was very thankful for, but she took the best care of her! She kept me updated on everything they were doing with photos and messages, luna was so happy! They went to the park, on tons of walks, played together, cuddled.... I am sooooo glad I found this beautiful family! They will def be my to-go sitters for Luna to both on busy days and for weekend getaways!

Louis and Ari had a blast staying with Tina and Shaun. I got plenty of updates that allowed for peace of mind while travelling. Tina and Shaun were also very flexible in keeping them for an additional night last minute. I will definitely be sending the boys back whenever I have to leave town.

Tina was soooo fantastic!! I am so glad that we used her for our Lola's first stay in Hollywood. She kept us up to date from the moment she picked up Lola from our house (another plus as we had an early flight) with pictures and video. It seemed Lola had more fun on her stay then we did on our great vacation! She sent us updates via email, since we were out of service, every single day and we never even asked for it! She let us know what dogs Lola was going to be hanging out with and how well she was behaving. Exactly the kind of care we wanted for our spoiled little girl. When we missed our flight coming home she was more than happy to keep Lola another day without hesitation. Hands down we would use her again, I know Lola is already thinking "Ummm where is my afternoon canyon hike Mom?". Guess someone might start using daycare! Thanks Tina!!

Can't say enough positive things - my doggie gets depressed coming home after her weekends with Tina (which kind of hurts my feelings BUT I'm glad she has so much fun!!). She's truly the best - I feel very at ease when she has my pup, and I love the photos and videos :)
Read More...
Very good.
We cannot say enough good things about Tina. We got multiple daily updates with photos letting us know what our dog was up to, personalized messages about any concerns and daily activities, and a clear sense that Tina and her boyfriend Shaun loved having our dog there. They even have her a bath after many walls, hikes, and play times. Our pup came home happy, tied, and smelling fresh. We will definitely use Tina again when we have the need. She was great!

Tina and Shaun are the absolute best!! Our baby Bruno LOVES going to daycare. He gets to play with friends, go on walks and hikes, and get attention all day long. Bruno is a rescue and has separation anxiety when we leave him alone for several hours at a time, so daycare has been awesome for him. Bruno loves to bug Rya to play, and she is so patient with him. I can tell from all the photos that Bruno really loves being around Rya. She is his pack leader! Tina sends tons of photos throughout the day and we love going through them to see all the fun Bruno had that day. As soon as we pick him up in the evening, he passes out in the backseat and is so calm the rest of the night. Daycare has worked wonders for Bruno! We love Tina!!!

Tina saved my life I used her often, but when my friend who was staying with me a few months offered to watch my dog I was OK with it. Then, I got home in between one of my trips and my dog was shaking, would not eat & I found urine stains on my carpet when she is trained. I was crying because I had to leave the next morning. I called Tina to see if she could watch her last minute for 8 days and she was not only available, she let me bring her at 6am so I cld have at least one night with her. Tina & her husband did everything in their power to make sure my princess was comfortable & happy. Once I picked her up my baby was perfect. She gives me daily updates via pictures and videos and is the best I have ever found to take care of my dog.

I was completely blown away with how incredible Tina and Shaun were!!!! I literally got about hundreds of photos (granted I was gone for 11 days), but it was great to see just how much fun my dogs had! They took my dogs out on walks, to Runyon Canyon, to the dog park and I could see through all the photos that my dogs were loving it. Simply the best hosts I could have asked for and I hope to use them again, as I know that my dogs thoroughly enjoyed their stay! Thank you Tina and Shaun!!! xo

Dexter loved spending all day with Tina and the other pups. It feels really good knowing that my buddy is in good hands (and a few extra paws). I love the pics she sends throughout the day and updates on what he's been up to. I highly recommend Tina and Shaun!

Tina is nothing short of fantastic! We joke that sending our pit mix to Tina is like sending her to sleep away camp. She has way more fun, she makes friends, and then she's sad to leave when we pick her up. Our dog even recognizes Tina's house now, so she's no longer nervous or timid, she's just super excited.
Tina is awesome and professional. She takes such good care of our pooch, and sends us updates so we can see our pup playing with all the other dogs. Tina is our #1 go-to, and we would be lost without her.
Read More...
Tina is the BEST... we would highly recommend her. Our little Frenchie Piper even gets excited when we're pulling up to drop her off. :)
Hi. My name is Dexter and I'm a fun loving cairn terrier. Tina is the "cat's pajamas"....cats? Wait, where?? Anyway...she takes me on great walks around my neighborhood, and I really enjoy the friends she brings along! I love my dad, but I'm sick of seeing his face every day...so Tina is a nice change in my day. My dad says he really appreciates the updates he receives from her with some fun and crazy pics of my shinanagans. (I don't know how to spell that word...but I'm a dog, so it's still impressive.) I'm somewhat embarrassed to say that she also updates him on my bathroom usage on our walks. But he likes that too because then he knows if I need "to go" when he gets home. Anyway, I HIGHLY recommend Tina! I'd give her two thumbs up...if I had thumbs.

Another great visit for Molly! Tina supplies us with photos and comments during her stay and we know she is well cared for.
I am so glad we found Tina and Shaun! They do an amazing job with our two dogs, and we are comfortable going out of town knowing they are in good hands. I could tell from the second I met them that they are true animal lovers and genuinely care about the well being of pets.I highly recommend them!

Tina and Shaun have been extremely caring, attentive and loving to our pet during our summer vacation. We were so happy with her communication about how our pet's doing accompanied by great detailed text photos that made us even happier ...our pet seemed to have really enjoyed his stay with them, specially interacting with the other dogs. They've made sure that our pet's got a lot of walks daily in different beautiful open spaced parks.
They're a gem...

Tina and Shaun are hands down the best.
Tina is spectacular! She is the only person I trust with my dog.
I can't say better things about Tina. I have a geriatric dog who requires meds 2 times a day. Before leaving, Tina covers everything possible so there were no questions as to Tucker's needs. She and her husband take him for hikes, long walks, visits to the park, and spend a lot of time making sure he is happy and healthy. She updates me with photos and messages throughout my time away, which lets me know what good hands he's in. I think he likes Tina and Shawn better than me now! She also watched my partners dogs for the weekend, and they were all in such great hands. He and I will always use Tina when we leave town, or need someone during the day.

We've left our 2.5 year old pit mix, Skylar, with Tina twice. Both times Tina has been wonderful! She is so thoughtful and always gives us doggie updates complete with walks in the park and trips to Runyon. Skylar hates leaving. We will never go back to old doggie day care again. Tina is the best!
Read More...
I didn't want to do this review because if she gets more dogs, she may not be able to care for mine, but I guess sharing is caring. I visited 5 or 6 & Tina was the only one who meant business. On my 1st visit, she had a notebook to interview me LOL! Meaning she was asking me questions about my doggie Princess from diet requirements to feedings to everything a doggy caregiver shld know abt your baby. (2)Her apartment is super cool & set up to accommodate the doggies. (3) She sends me pics & videos & she genuinely loves Princess & my Princess loves her & her husband Sean. (4) She is so flexible with my last minute schedulings. (5) My Princess has a few problems so they are always helping me work with her to make her stronger. I love them!!! Seriously they are the BEST & the BIGGEST BLESSING!

My dog and I love Tina. No way to do better. I always feel so confident in leaving my little guy with her.
Fantastic! Mr. Leroy is a repeat visitor and will return again:)
Tina and Shaun were great! We received over 100 photos of Ernie and his new friends while we were gone, and I think he might have had more fun then we did! Tina was great at setting up a meet-and-greet, letting us know what to expect for Ernie's stay, and I think we even discovered a new park in the process. We will definitely be booking with them again.

Tina and her partner are wonderful hosts! She is easy to communicate with, seems to really understand and love dogs, and made me feel good about leaving my dog with them.
Tina updated me on how my dog was doing. She sent me tons of fun photos of Mr. Leroi and the other dogs she was watching doing all sorts of things throughout the day. I could tell that he was at ease, at play, at rest, and comfortable.
Not only that but she also thought out how to introduce my senior dog to the other puppies, and dogs in a way that made him feel at home.
The last photos she sent showed my somewhat serious and grump dog actually smiling! I will be sending him her way for vacays to come!

Tina was amazing. She sent tons of photos and videos every day documenting Duke's time at her house. She kept him occupied with frequent walks and runs, and in the evenings she allowed him to sleep on the bed or snuggle on the couch. It was very clear she takes her dog sitting responsibilities very seriously, and we are so happy we've found her.

Izzy enjoyed her 2nd visit with Tina! She's our gal - won't be leaving my pup with anyone else as long as she is available :) great care, gives tons of attention! Very communicative too - love the photos.
Tina's the best, hands down!!!!
This was our first experience using DogVacay and we weren't sure what to expect at first. But we were absolutely blown away at how AMAZING our experience with Tina was! She took such great care of our baby, took her on plenty of walks, lots of dog park trips and showered her with love. While we were away Tina would send us several updates daily letting us know what Piper was doing and included texts & videos so we never had to miss out on anything. Tina was such a God send for us and helped put our mind at ease so we were able to enjoy our vacation knowing Piper was in great hands. Piper had so much fun playing with Tina & the other dogs that I think she was a little sad to leave! But we will DEFINITELY be using Tina again....THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Will 100% be leaving Izzy with Tina every chance I get... She sent TONS of photos of my pup having a blast with other doggies. She went hiking and to dog parks and did fun activities every day. I can tell Izzy was very sad to leave Tina's house... which is a sign of a great host. Tina was also very flexible with pick up schedule - much appreciated.

Tina is the best. Love her, but my dog loves her even more!
Your search is over, Tina is hands down the best! My dog Oscar is always incredibly happy and I know he is in safe hands. Tina even sends me notes to keep me posted Oscar and what their daily activities have been. Tina and Shaun are a perfect team.

Tina is Terrific!
Tina was great! Because we made the booking at the last minute we did not get the chance to meet and greet with their dog but it went extremely well and the 2 dogs got along swimmingly! Within a few hours we started receiving pictures of our dog playing with the other dogs and throughout the weekend, Tina sent us pictures. We would have no hesitation on using her again.

Tina was fabulous!
I could not be more delighted with Tina and Shawn's loving care of my Friedrich. They were so dedicated and conscientious, taking him on numerous walks, hikes and doggie park runs. They made him feel right at home, which I could plainly see from the multiple updates Tina sent me daily. And in the evening, it was cuddle city. Frankly, I was a big afraid he wouldn't want to come home.

I will absolutely use Tina and Shawn again and recommend them without hesitation!
Read More...
Words cannot express how amazing Tina is! She is so fast to respond for a meet n greet. You can tell that she loves dogs and is very experienced in caring for them. She treated my baby like her own. I really enjoyed all the pictures, videos and updates. Tina took my girl hiking, on walks and playdates! Tina was open to have my dog keep the same schedule she is used to, and kept her entertained for the entire time.
Tina was also very understanding about my changing schedule and went out of her way to be accommodating. Kestra loved her stay with Tina and next time I am out of town, I wont go to anyone else.
Peace of mind is so important when leaving your dog with others. Tina went above and beyond to make sure I had it.
Read More...
Look no further than Tina! She and Shaun are amazing! We had to leave our recently adopted puppy for a weekend and were worried about displacing him, so we asked Tina to stay at our place. We received TONS of great pics and videos of our little guy playing and cuddling, which really helped us relax about leaving him and enjoy our trip. Tina also administered oral medication like a pro! We came home to a happy and relaxed pup and a spotless house. We are so thrilled about Tina and Shaun-they are awesome!

Tina was an amazing hostess for my 3 year old yellow Lab, Leo. I received multiple pictures and videos of Leo each of the 5 days he was with her. She took him hiking, to play fetch, on several walks and let him wrestle with her Lab. I was worried Leo would be so happy there he might not want to come home! Thanks for taking such great care of my fur-baby!

Tina was great! She kept me up to date on the pups' daily activities, eating habits, and exercise patterns. My 3-year old Siberian husky Thor got along with Tina's pup Raya extremely well!! I would definitely recommend choosing Tina to sit your pup!
Tina is nothing short of amazing!
We had previously sent our pooch to a doggy day care for boarding, but we didn't feel it was a good fit for her. With Tina our pooch got one-on-one attention, a sofa to snuggle on, and trips to Runyon and the dog park. While we were gone Tina provided several text messages per day letting us know how the pooch was getting on without us. When the trip was over and we went to get the pup, we were amazed she wasn't smelly. She always smells awful if we board her at the doggy day care - but with Tina the pooch smells the same as when we left her. This is some kind of miracle.
Tina is magic.

Tina, Shaun, and Rya made the best caretakers. They welcomed my little guys in to their home and pack. It was obvious that my needy pups were being loved and entertained. I received multiple messages daily with pictures of fun being had all over town. They hiked Runyon and played at at least 3 different dog parks. I hope they are available every time I need to leave town.

Tina and Shaun did an awesome job with our dog Brutus. We got lots of pics and updates daily. We would definitely use them again.
