About Kaz

Dogs are my "people" more than actual people are on most days! My days are occupied with my pup as I work from home. We get up early to enjoy long, cooler walks; play at the agility park, and go for rides and adventures.

I work from home with my super-smart, very active border collie, Lola, as my co-pilot. We always do a minimum of two walks a day, averaging about 5+ miles per day.

I am happy to come to you and provide an active lifestyle for your pup whilst you are away or working long hours, so that they are happy and healthy and distracted just enough to not miss you too much! And on some occasions, I can have your dog come stay with me and Lola as well; we can work out the best situation during a meet-and-greet!

Kaz was great! She stayed in my home with my dog and brought her dog as well! She updated me daily on how my Lola was doing and she even left my place nicer than when I left it! I have a permanent, trusting pet sitter in Kaz!
Kaz was hands down amazing! We asked if she and her dog Lola would mind staying at our house because we thought our dog Bailey and cat Stella would be more comfortable there. She took excellent care of our pets and our house. She kept us updated our entire trip with pictures and you could definitely tell that all the animals were happy and getting tons of attention! This was the longest we have ever left Bailey (5 days) and it was very comforting to know she was in such great hands. She walked Bailey and Lola together multiple times a day for several miles!! Another thing that was awesome was that anytime we contacted Kaz (via the app or text) she responded immediately.
My Aussies were so happy to have another dog to play with & to be well cared for. They loved the long walks. We plan on using your service again. Thank you so much for taking wonderful care of our babies.
Kaz was a wonderful sitter for my dog. I think she was sad to see me return. She acted as if I was never gone, her demeanor, attention and routine remained the same. Kaz kept her entertained, and moving with her long walks and visit to the dog park. I will definitely be looking for Kaz the next time I leave town.
Her dog Nola is delightful and obedient. A welcome companion for my pooch.
Thank you Kaz!!!
We once again called on Kaz to come to our home to watch our 2 puggles, along with her Lola. We came home to a spotless home with Buddy and Lucy happy and relaxed. We really like that Kaz offers the flexibility in her schedule to come to us, as we find our dogs are much better adjusted to our absence in their own home. We will use Kaz for our darlings whenever she can accommodate us, and also strongly recommend her to others. She has a happy demeanor that our dogs can clearly sense and they love her.
Since we got our shy, protective, nervous Spanish Water Dog 4 years ago, our trips have been very limited, he always travels with us and he doesn’t trust anyone outside the family (not even our neighbors that he knows from his puppy days). We’ve left Oso in a very nice pet hotel during one three day trip and few day care days, but we’ve always picked him up very anxious so, when we were leaving for a three week trip overseas the idea of leaving him there for such a long period of time was worrying us a lot. We explored DogVacay without much hope of finding someone that could bond with Oso and we found Kaz. We talked on the phone for a long time and she was very flexible and understanding from the very beginning; she put our worries to rest and we decided to meet her. We met Kaz and her lovely companion Lola for a walk on a rainy Saturday. Oso did surprisingly well both with Kaz and Lola and he even let Kaz pet him! (he doesn’t let anyone outside the family pet him, period). We knew then that Kaz was the right match for Oso and we felt he was going to have a good time with her. She was very patient and accommodating. Two days before our departure, we left Oso with Kaz for a bonding day. After a long walk all together, he went easily with Kaz and Lola and had a fun day. When we picked him up he was excited and happy, but not anxious. What a difference! THANKS Kaz!!
We couldn’t be happier with Kaz and Lola taking care of Oso during our three weeks trip overseas. We dropped him at Kaz's the day before our trip to save him the packing commotion. Oso went easily with them. During our trip, Kaz sent us lots of pictures and videos regularly and although we missed him very much, we could see how happy he was. He went for very long walks daily, got lots of rubs and had a good friend to hang out with; he even got a bath! (they can’t bathe him at the pet hotel). When we picked him up, he was excited and happy, but he wasn’t in a hurry to leave Kaz and Lola. He was truly a different dog. Few days after our return, we still can’t believe how calm he is. No more barking at the door or the neighbors, no whining during car rides, no growling when people approaches him, just a happy content dog. Even the neighbors are commenting on his different demeanor. We call Kaz the dog whisperer of Encinitas.
THANKS Kaz and Lola!!
Kaz was very flexible on what worked best for us. We decided to have her and Lola, her sweet-mannered boarder collie, take care of Buddy and Lucy in our home (rather than hers) for our dogs' comfort. She sent lots of pictures and updates via text messages during the day of our babies, which really helped with our anxieties about being away from them. She is very playful and caring with our dogs and left our home clean and neat when we returned from being away. We will use Kaz again and highly recommend her to others!!
