About Summer

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
For over 12 years I ran a busy dog walking service in Washington, DC. It is good to be back enjoying the trails, sunshine, and beach walks with the dogs! I love what I do!

Our home is located up in the peaceful Hills on Ojai's Saddle Mountain Road.

Cool mornings and evenings make for the perfect walking weather. Let us know your needs so we can adjust their walk schedule depending on age, condition, and client request.

Dogs are free to roam the house, and hang out on the sofa. My 8 year old daughter grew up around dogs from day one, and loves to dole out the doggie treats and belly rubs. We will do our best to make your pup feel like one of the family while you are away.

Just let us know how we can help to make your pals next stay relaxing and stress free. No request is too ridiculous.

We have had so many wonderful doggie guests! I am also a certified groomer, let me know if you would like to book a bath or haircut so they are fresh and clean when you come back for pickup.

I never think twice about going anywhere while Daisy, Chester and the family are available. My dog loves this family and so do I. Thank you Daisy for making fun and games possible for me as well as Billy.
She had a great usrd, good activities, and a nice indoor area. Gosh I had a wonderful time.
Summer was very friendly and seemed to know a lot about dogs. My dog, Anya, a 10 yr old German shepherd, tends to be shy & aloof at first when meeting new people, but she was very comfortable at Summers home & with her dog and other guest dogs. My dog was very relaxed and seemed very comfortable with her stay with Summer.
Summer was a fantastic dog host! She is very knowledgable about dogs, accommodating to requests, and easy to get in touch with. Our greyhound had a lovely day hogging her couch. :-) Thanks!
If we could give 100 stars, we would! Summer was so great with our initial walk-through with our dog, Oreo. She was very accommodating to our schedule. Her daughter was so helpful, too, by giving him loving attention and care.

While we were away, we received many updates on Oreo, with photos of him having a great time. When my husband went to pick him up, he said "Oreo didn't want to leave!" That made me feel so good, knowing Oreo had a great second home while we were away.

Thank you! We will 100% recommend Summer and use her again in the future.
Lady had a nice stay with Summer.
Summer and her family are wonderful with all the dogs and we felt totally comfortable leaving our puppy with her for the first time. It was a long stay and she sent picture and text updates throughout to check in. Pearl loved playing with Sunny and the other dogs and felt safe and loved. We will definitely use her again!
We were thrilled to find Summer in Ojai. She is truly a dog person in the best sense. It was a first time for us to leave Daisy (85 lb. shepherd mix) with her so, as promised, Summer sent pics while we were away. It was so great to know Daisy was having just as good a time as we were. Summer is the perfect dog-sitter. Yay!
I would like to give Summer a glowing recommendation and praise for taking care of our dog Misty. We completely trust her with the care of our dog. She has shown enormous love and compassion for our Misty. We always worry about leaving our family member with someone when we have to leave but Summary completely erases all concerns.

Thank you for caring for our family member,

Andrea and William Gomez
Summer was so great! Very friendly, loves animals and was very flexible with the drop off and pickup times of our pup. We will use her again next time we go out of town!
Summer was amazing!! We came up to Ojai for our little honeymoon and wanted Mayzee close by so we didn't have to worry about her while we were away. As soon as we dropped her off she made no indication that she was sad to leave us to be handed over to this family..in fact, she became a part of their family quite quickly. She got along with Sunny their Weim like it was her brother and loved on Summer's daughter. I got text photos to prove it! :) I'm pretty sure she's bored being home with us now after all the fun she had there, she's been sleeping all day!
Summer was very responsive to my last minute request for an overnight for our dog. Her email and text responses were quick and her availability for drop off and pick up was flexible. She and her dog were friendly. She also arranged a bath with a mobile groomer, which was a nice perk.
Summer is great with Tally and Jackson. They come home after being with her and are exhausted. They seem to enjoy playing with the other dogs and having interaction with new people and new dog friends. They will be back soon. Lynn
Summer was great! She took well care of Jackson and Tally for their first night away from home. They liked it so well, they are returning next week. I highly recommend Summer!
Summer was great! She sent me a couple of updates during my short trip along with some pictures which was much appreciated. My dog is very high energy, but she was able to handle him and a few other dogs of similar temperament very well and I know my dog had a great time. I will definitely use Summer again!
Josie had a blast at Summer's... I know this because she napped all afternoon when picked her up! Lots of play and a secure environment. Very grateful :)
This was our second time leaving Willis. Steve and I know that every time we leave Willis he is cared for and loved and has the best time with some of his other friends that are there. We would refer Summer to anyone that is looking for a dog sitter. Leaving your precious pet with someone you can really trust is the best feeling. No matter where we go, we feel 100% confident that Willis is getting the greatest care.
Sula and Blueberry had a wonderful time with Summer and her canine friends. They were in great shape and it was terrific not having to worry about them while we were away. Lot's more room in the car for the humans too! Thanks Summer!
Summer did a great job of taking care of Nessie (our german/aussie shepherd). She really went the extra mile, would not hesitate to use again. She even provided us with daily updates! Thanks again!
Summer and her family took great care of our three dogs while we were on a 10 day retreat in Ojai. We really appreciated that there was always somewhere there at the house with the dogs since one of our dogs has separation anxiety. They welcomed our dogs into their home and we were grateful they were so well taken care of while we were there.
Jeannie is always happy to visit Summer and feel good about leaving her in a home with such a nice family. She has been cared for like one of the family and it shows. Thank you Summer. We'll be coming back!
Summer and her husband were great. We took our pitbull mix to them. It was the first time we left our dogs in hands outside our home. Their puppy wore him out(which is hard to do)! We got pics throughout our vacation, that made us feel better. They take long walks (5 miles), which is what we do, so that put us at ease knowing he was getting the exercise he needs. They are very experienced and I had no doubt Leroy would be in great hands.
Summer was a great host for my girl Ruby. She and her husband took great care of my pooch. She went on lots of walks and had lots of fun with the other dogs. I would definetly recommend taking your dog to Summer.
This was the first time I was away from my little guy, Max, but Summer and Juan were great!!! They sent me pics and text updates which I thought was above and beyond the dog sitting! Max looked happy and came back wagging his tail!!! I will use them again in a heart beat and I highly recommend their doggie family!!!
This was our first time leaving our 10 month old "Willis" with anyone other than family. We felt very comfortable leaving Willis with Summer and Juan. We were able to enjoy ourselves knowing that he was in a loving home making friends with other dogs as well. When Steve brought him home he seemed happy, content and well taken care of. Yes, We would leave Willis with Summer and Juan again. Thank you again Summer!!
Oliver seems to have had a great time at his 11-day visit with Summer. We received photos of him with his favorite playmate. Summer was very helpful picking up and delivering him home, particularly when an auto breakdown forced us to change the delivery date.
Looks like our dog had a blast! He came home happy and well-exercised. We got constant updates and pics throughout his stay, which I really appreciated. He was well cared for and enjoyed all his walks, frisbee games and enjoyed having slumber parties with his new furry friends. Lovely couple that watched him just built a fence around their yard, and that gave us peace of mind. We will definitely use Summer again!!
We're thrilled with the care our Madison got with Summer and her family. I was nervous about being gone so long....3 weeks, and I refused to put her in a traditional kennel, she would have hated that. At 10 months, she had never been away from us, so this family and home environment was perfect. We got regular updates through texts and pics, and we just knew she was happy....at the beach, on hikes, playing with the other dogs. I am so grateful we found Summer. I feel like we have an extended family for her, a place she can always go when we're out of town. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
This is the first time we use this resource for our doggy care needs and I have to say that Summer did an excellent job. She was very quick to respond to my questions, incredibly accommodating, and I can tell our little guy had a great experience with her. He's a bit of a handful being a 14 week old puppy, so we are very appreciative of the great care she provided.
Ginger really enjoyed her walks and playing with the other dogs in a great home environment. It was so nice to get the text message with an update on how she was doing while I was away. I would definitely recommend Summer to my friends.
Summer and her family were great! The took very good care of Misty. They even let her sleep in their room.
Summer took care of our pug Chewie while we had dinner in Ojai. She and her family took great care of him, and he was thoroughly worn out when we returned. Highly recommend!
Summer, her husband Juan and little girl were just the perfect hosts for Rusty. They gave him lots of attention, walks and made him feel right at home. They seems to have lots of experience with dogs and are friendly and caring. We will bring Rusty there every time we are Ojai visiting our daughter and has two cats who Rusty chases if there. He has more fun at Summer's house anyway!
My dog Rio came home happy after many belly rubs, good walks and treats. Summer was super quick to respond to any questions I had, she also sent me text updates and pictures. She was very flexible and easy to work with, which came in handy as my flight was delayed so I was late in picking up my dog by a few hours. I will be recommending her to my friends!!
Roxie came home calm and happy Sign of good care and lots of attention
Summer took good care of our big dog while we were away for a long weekend. We have an older dog who needs a little extra rest and not too much activity, which can be difficult because our dog just wants to play. Summer was able to keep our dog in happy and healthy shape while we were gone.
Summer was great. She welcomed our Sammy into her home with open arms and made the whole process laid-back and easy. I know Sammy was well-cared for and had a lovely visit. (She also had another canine companion staying for the weekend which was an added bonus, as Sammy loves company of all kinds!)
Lola had an amazing time with Summer and her family! They sent us updates and pics throughout her 6 night stay and really treated Lola as if she were one of their own. I know she was sad to leave -- we will be booking again!
Summer is great - even though this was our first experience with a sitter and with DogVacay, we felt very comfortable leaving our "second child" with her and her family. We liked the combination of personal and professional - on the one hand, they take care of dogs every day and clearly have plenty of experience with them; on the other, this is their home, not an impersonal kennel. Having a sitter who works out of their home was important to us; we didn't want to leave our dog with someone who would be gone at work for the entire day.

When we left Shio, he seemed comfortable right away hanging out with them outside. We were a little worried how his first night away from home would go, but Summer reassured us the next day that he had done wonderfully. When we came to pick him up a few days later, we saw him walking with Summer for a bit before he saw us, and he was clearly relaxed.

We would definitely leave Shio with Summer again!
We were traveling from MA to SC and needed a place to board our 2 sheepdogs while we were in DC on business for 4 days. Even though we were unable to meet before the scheduled stay, our correspondence before the visit satisfied both of us that this would work, and it did! When we left the dogs with Summer, they acted like they wouldn't even miss us, not their usual reaction. Summer was great and the dogs seemed happy to stay with her. She was good with them and her experience showed. Would do it again!
Summer was great, and my dog Bailey clearly had a good time with her. I would definitely recommend her!
