About Torie

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband James and I are big animal lovers. Over the course of our relationship, we have adopted two puppies in addition to the two cats James already had. We love being outdoors, especially going to the beach and for hikes.

We live in a 3 bedroom/2.5 bathroom 2 story house, with a great fenced yard for our two dogs (Pepper and Jack). Our home is a fun and safe place for dogs to rest and play. We have a great yard which the dogs can play in while under careful supervision. We found out when we moved in that Jack is a master digger, and so we spent a lot of time and effort "puppy-proofing" the border of the yard with cement under the whole fence, protecting the dogs from digging out. We also live by some great parks and hiking trails, and love going on walks.

We love all dogs, big and small, and can't wait to welcome them with open arms into our home. From Pitbulls to Chihuahuas there's no discrimination here we love them all the same. We have been active in rescue projects from shelters with high kill rates, fostering dogs with prospective new homes while travel arrangements were coordinated. Our two dogs are small, but they get along with all breeds.

If you are in the process or training or trying to promote good habits(no jumping, ignoring them when too hyper, sitting before eating) let us know and we will be happy to take note and try and accommodate to the best of our abilities. We are not trainers, but can absolutely take your direction on any specific do and dont's for your pup and keep up any good work you've started. (And James has a great authoritative voice!)

Please do not forget to bring your dog's food, bowls, favorite treats, blankie, toys, their comfy bed, crate(if you crate), leashes, and collars or harnesses anything that is necessary for your dog’s stay. Let us know if you have any special instructions about feeding or bedtime. Also, let us know if there are any restrictions on treats (our dogs love rawhide twists). If possible, consider sending at least one item with a familiar smell such as a blanket or sweatshirt to help put your dog at ease in his/her new environment.

NOTE: We have a special rate for extended stays and advanced bookings, and reserve the right to charge a slightly higher holiday rate and a puppy rate.

This is our second time with Torie and it was as smooth as the first. Definitely recommended!
My wife and I were extremely happy we found Torie to watch our dog. She kept us updated with messages and pictures during our trip which was awesome. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs to board their pets.
Torie was very flexible, and was willing to take my dog on short notice. From the time she opened the door of her townhouse, she was,very friendly and welcoming. She obviously loves dogs. She was very interested in my dog & asked about her habits. She sent pictures of her on a regular basis. Thanks for taking such good care of Sadie!

Torie & James were AMAZING with my Greyhound, Rayce. I can't thank them enough :)
It was my 1st time leaving him with anybody but family so I was a bit concerned. Greyhounds tend to be sensitive dogs & not good with change but Torie & James were wonderful with him. They even got him to eat which I was sure wouldn't happen. When rayce is stressed he won't eat. It just proves how patient & kind they were. Rayce had a great time with the other dogs they were watching as well.
Torie sent me pictures & updates which really helped me not worry.
Thank you Torie & James!!!!

Torie was great with our Golden Retriever Perry! She was very accommodating and her communication was excellent. Will definitely use again. Thank you!
We are so glad we found DogVacay and especially that we met Torie and her husband James. Real dog lovers and our little dog has a great time.
Torie and James are the best. They really love dogs and our little guy comes home very happy after his vacvay!
We are so happy we found Torie on this service. She is terrific and I would highly recommend her to anyone here locally - 20 mile radius of Monrovia, CA.
Torie was great. Very professional and it was obvious that she (and her husband) love dogs. We already have two other dates penciled in. Oh and our dog like the experience too!
Torie was great with my dog,Bayjax. I was nervous to leave our dog with someone I didn't know well. Torie texted me updates and photos every day to let me know how Bayjax was doing. Bayjax had a great time with other dogs from the photos. I would recommend and use her services again in the future.

The highest compliment I can give is that I feel completely comfortable leaving my baby Ginger with Torie. They are the best and I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to have their dog stay with someone that treats them like family.
Torie and her husband obviously love dogs. They were very well taken care of, and were tired and happy when they came home! There is not a large yard for big dogs entertain themselves. However, they seem to have spent a lot of time with them.
My dog just loved staying with Torie. Torie was a wonderful host and I will be using her again for certain!
