About Starr

24 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
* Small Dogs Only *
I have been a doggy parent to Lhasa Apsos and Havanese for over 20 years and am a stay-at-home Mom to my three Havanese. We also foster for Havanese Rescue Inc.

Our dogs have attended classes and love to practice and learn new tricks. We are starting Agility training and have a small set-up for our fenced front yard.

We go often to the best dog park in the San Francisco Bay Area - Pt Isabel - ALWAYS on leash. Safety First!

Starr to great care of our havanese puppy, Luna who was tiny and had never been away from us. She was very helpful with the drop off and pick up process (the former being difficult for me)! We highly recommend her and loved the photos and feedback she provided during our trip. She even figured out Luna only ate out of a stainless bowl after I forgot hers and that was a datapoint we didn't even know but after much trial and error Starr had her eating very well and took great care in making sure all was as much like home as it could be. we really appreciated her care!!!
Friendly people but not a lot of space/yard.
Can't thank you enough Starr J!

Wesley, our small Pomeranian mix, had a fulfilling vacation staying with Starr J for 30 days. When our daughter dropped him off at Starr's, Wesley was on medication and a bland diet, he was recovering from eating spicy taco meat a few days before we were to leave. Starr had his habits figured out and knew what Wesley needed to be a happy, healthy dog. She emailed us to assure us he was doing great and eating again, the message came with photos of a happy healthy Wesley! You can imagine the relief we felt. When we picked him up we could tell that he was comfortable with Starr and his surroundings. I would recommend Starr to my friends, she is caring, competent and knows dogs. Thanks again Starr!

P.S. We will be contacting DogVacay.com the next time Wesley needs a vacation. All aspects of DogVacay work great. From the meet and greet, to the drop off and then picking up Wesley --- everything is clear and simple to follow for this site. Thank you Starr and DogVacay!
Starr was friendly, welcoming and very knowledgable about dogs. She was flexible with our schedule and with the special requirements our dog had.
Starr took good care of Snoopy. Although she had to be away for a period of time, she communicated that ahead of time. Overall, a wonderful experience
Starr was very accommodating. Her doggies are a bit yappy (excitement?!), ;-) but I had no concerns at all about my pup's well-being or safety. In fact, I'm sure he had a blast. She sent me a pic of him, too, during his stay. Made me miss him just a little bit less & nice knowing he was ok.
Louie seemed to enjoy his stay and came home in good spirits. As has been mentioned, this home has dogs and does not smell like it at all. I really appreciated the mid-week photo of Louie and the fact that Starr figured out the best way to feed him - something I'd forgotten to mention.
Starr is great! We have had to go out of town at the last minute a number of times in the past few months. She has cared for our dog even when we request it at the last minute. Not only is she flexible, she is wonderful with our boy!
Starr is wonderful! We have relyed on her to watch our boy every month. He is always happy to see her- and we know that he will be well taken care of! The whole family at the Habernese Hotel is kind and attentive. I recommend it highly.
Starr is a sweet and loving dog sitter. Cosmo was in great hands with her and her little ones. She is genuinely concerned about the care of your pet. I would greatly recommend Starr. Linda Richardson
Starr is awesome! Our boy loves the great treatment, companionship and care that he gets from Starr- And since we felt that he is safe and happy, we were really able to enjoy our trip. Thanks again Starr- We'll be back!
Starr is terrific! Very loving and thoughtful. Lots of walks and fun even in bad weather. She spends quality (and quantity!) time w/our dog. She is the only sitter we trust.
Starr is a wonderful lady. She gives attention to my puppy---what she eats, how she behaves, and how to groom her.
If you are planning to go for a vacation, or just simply dog day care--you will be able to trust Starr. Her house is clean--no urine/ feces odor( like others boarding place). And she has lots of toys to get your dogs busy. Besides, her own dogs get along with my puppy. She also sent pictures couple hours after I dropped my puppy. That gives me a piece of mind. It is hard to find someone that you can trust while you are away. She is one of a genuine person.
