About Heather

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My Koreatown studio is a loving environment for pups. I have a 12 year old maltipoo named Meeko who is great with other dogs and doesn't mind sharing his many dog beds. I am 2 blocks from McArthur and Lafayette park where Meeko enjoys his strolls. We often visit my aunt's house in Atwater village to get in exercise in the swimming pool and play with her 4 dogs who are all also very friendly. Your pup will never be bored. I absolutely love dogs and animals in general. Your fur baby will never be without love and attention.

Meet and greets are welcomed and recommended.

All overnights are a 24 hour period. Please be clear on drop off and pick up times. A supplemental day rate is recommended by DogVacay for any time over the 24 hour period. Go to for $20 off your first booking!

Harrison had a great time with Heather. He came home happy and is looking forward to his next stay.
Heather watched my pup over the holidays and I will definitely bring him back! My older dachshund is generally pretty laid back & tends to stay quiet and close to humans when he's away from home. Heather sent us several pictures and video that showed him playing with her other boarders & having the time of his life- he is still sleeping 3 days later. She even sent him home with a gift (organic treats is a super cute container)! Thanks so much, Heather! Wilson can't wait for his next visit!
Heather has cared for my baby twice now and he has had such a great time! She updates me throughout the day and romeo always has a great time with her.
Heather was great! She was able to watch Max over Christmas on super short notice which really saved me a big headache. She sent frequent updates and Max had a great time. Highly recommend!
Heather was amazing!
She was so accommodating to take Minx in at the last minute, and (bonus!) her home is really close to mine.
She is super sweet and attentive, and sent cute photos of Minx throughout her stay. I felt completely at ease leaving her with Heather.
I would recommend her to anyone and will be using her again.
Thanks Heather!
Kato had a wonderful stay with Heather!
Heather is caring and prepared to serve our dog's needs. She introduced him to the other pups and dogs and made him feel very much at home, especially taking him to a family Thanksgiving outing. We would bring Templeton to her care again.
Thanks, Heather and familyy
fantastic experience. heather took very good care of our girl tuli.
Heather was fantastic!
Her communication were perfect, I was able to relaxed and run my errands because Heather kept me updated of the activities that she and Chewie were up to. Chewie enjoyed his day very much with Heaheather!! I am very thankful to her for her services.
Will not recommend Heather to friends or family. My Yorkie was very upset after staying with her, crying all the time way back home. At home, I found that my dog was dehydrated and hungry. Also, Heather send me only one video from a walk with my dog but told that they walked 4-5 time a day. I don't know if this is true or not. But in summary, I wasn't satisfied with the quality of service. When you choose top-rated sitter you expect top quality, but not in this case, it looks like only money business without a true care of your pet.

P.S. It was not the first time when I left my Yorkie with a pet sitter.
Heather was super! She took my dog on short notice before Thanksgiving and everything went perfectly. She's obviously a dog-lover and she gave my girl the attention and company she deserved. Thanks, Heather!
As a new doggy parent, I needed to find a great place for my shih poo, Gidget, to stay over the Thanksgiving holiday. Thankfully, I came across Heather's profile and shortly thereafter met her and her cute dog, Meeko, for a meet-and-greet. All went very well and I booked Heather to watch my fur baby for 18 (!!) days. Heather sent photo and/or video updates daily (sometimes more than once!) to share how Gidget was doing each day. Although I wasn't there in person, I could feel Heather's positive energy and love through these messages. I felt VERY relieved knowing Gidget was in such caring, capable, and trustworthy hands while I was gone. I would 100% use the amazing Heather to watch my little one again. Thanks a million, Heather!
My dog's stay had to be extended a day during my trip but that just meant another day of fun and loving care.
This was actually a booking that simply extended our earlier one, but both times Heather was fantastic! She texted me pictures and videos everyday, did a wonderful job socializing her with other puppies, and even took her to the park! We would definitely use her services again! Our puppy loves her!
Heather was professional, sweet, and did such an amazing job with our puppy! We love her and will definitely be calling her up again next time we leave town!
Heather was fantastic! So thankful that we found her. She answered quickly. Sent picture updates and loved our pup. Highly recommend Heather.
Heather always does a great job with Tita, and for that reason we will continue to book through her.
Heather was great. So flexible!
Heather was amazing and responsive. We had an impromptu apartment pest control visit and it was already late in the evening. I noticed she was the closest candidate. She responded within minutes, much to my relief. She met my husband outside of her apartment in the morning. Then within the first hour and throughout the day, I received images and texts and even one video of our 2 dogs playing. Even her dog was sweet with our dogs! She was so loving with my dogs and made them comfortable enough to nap! Later, she met me outside when it was pick up time. Such excellent customer service and experience! Five stars isn't enough. I wanted to tip her and she even said, watching the dogs was enough. Thank you Heather, we will use you again, if/whenever we have to.
She was great! She sent me photos and kept me up to date on how my baby was doing. I could tell that she really loves dogs.
Heather's great, and I definitely recommend her!!! She's very quick at responding, and it seemed like my dog, Loki, loved staying with her! Throughout the stay, she would send me periodic pictures of Loki, which I really appreciated. Thank you again, Heather!
Heather accepted my request for doggy sitting the same week I needed it, which was very helpful. She sent me text messages every day updating me on how my baby was doing. Plus drop off and pick up were easy too, thanks Heather!
Well, where do I even begin... Heather was super flexible with us and was more than willing to work around our schedule, which was much appreciated! Also, she went above and beyond by sending us several photos of our precious Tita, and that made being away from Tita more bearable. Tita is extremely spoiled and we are very thankful that Heather was so accommodating throughout the entire Vacay experience. We will certainly be bringing Tita back after a great first Vacay experience!
Heather was the bomb!! She was incredibly flexible with her schedule allowing us to add an extra night to her stay at the last minute. Laksa seemed to have enjoyed her time and seems legitimately depressed that she isn't getting to spend more time at aunty Heather's place. Would absolutely request Heather as a sitter in the future!
A few hours before drop off, my initial sitter cancelled so I was extremely thankful and lucky to find Heather. She immediately responded and put my heart at ease. I have an 8 year old and a 5 month old and Heather did an amazing job at adapting to their personalities and going above and beyond with taking care of them. She sent me picture updates and videos.
I've used dogvcay several time and Heather has been the best! Thank you for all that you did for us. We will be back soon!

Heather was a wonderful host to my little Ricky Bobby Lee. She was very responsive during the booking process and sent me daily pictures and updates of his activities and playdates during the time I was away. I would definitely book Heather again!
Heather made me feel at ease with her photos and updates of my dog's stay with her! I felt confident my boy was in good hands and he came back too me exhausted, so I know he enjoyed himself and his company! Will book with Heather again.
Heather is an awesome dog nanny :) my puppy coco had a great time for the long weekend. Heather also keeps us updated through out the weekend. Definitely will ask her to "babysit" my puppy when we out of town next time!
Heather was amazing, she loved my dog and my dog loved her. I will definitely use her next time. Amazing.
I could tell my pug, Homer, had a great time staying with Heather and the other pups. Heather was great at sending updates and taking good care of my little guy. I will definitely be using her services again. Thanks so much!!! Woof!
Heather is hands down the BEST choice!! I've never left my pup behind since adopting her, and I refused to board her in a place that has kennels. I stumbled upon this app and found Heather and couldn't be more happy with my pup's stay with her! She was sending me daily text updates, photos and videos! If you want someone who is caring, cuddles your pup, loves them just as much as you do, and takes them on fun adventures like hikes and swimming (she asked my permission first of course :) ), Heather is your girl! She is the only one I'll trust to pup sit my fur child from now on!!
Heather was a wonderful dog sitter! From the minute we left our pup with her, we felt comfortable and confident that he would be well taken care of! She sent us pictures and videos of him while we were away - and could see how happy he was! I would highly recommend her to take care of your pup while you're away! Thank you, Heather!
Simply put it.....Heather was awesome.

I had to get out of town last minute and had no one to watch my dog. Came across DogVacay and was very hesitant to try it out. After finding Heather, I left my dog Cash in good hands. She was quick to respond to my texts whenever I wanted to know how my pup was. I was sent pictures and videos and it made me feel a lot better. I will be going to her each and every time I need someone to watch my dog. Thank you Heather!
Heather was wonderful! She kept me updated throughout my entire trip with photos and updates. She definitely made a wonderful home to stay for my little girl while I was away.
Highly recommended:

Heather was very prompt with the initial contact. She always kept me posted about my dog's stay every few hours so I wouldn't have to worry. Anytime I text Heather, she responded very quickly. When I got my dog back from her, I can tell that my dog enjoyed her stay with Heather since she did not whimper throughout the rest of the day, which she would normally do if she was unhappy for a long period. Overall, 5+ stars.
Heather was great with Winkle, and judging on the photos she sent through they had an instant bond. She clearly knows what she's doing with dogs and would trust her to watch, and tire the little fella out, whenever I'm in need of a dog sitter. Thanks, Heather!
Heather is attentive, intuitive and loving and dedicated to making your pet's vacation with her a phenomenal experience. She updates with photos and checks in regularly to put any concerns to rest. As an animal lover, Heather puts herself in the owner's shoes and does for the owner what she would like to have done for her when leaving a loved one in the care of another. Do NOT go to a boarding service with dozens of pets at any given time. Give your dog the one on one care and love he or she deserves. Heather is the only choice!!!
