About Heather

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Full Time Care For Your Best Friend

Hello, my name is Heather!
I am a home-based free-lancer. I live in Calabasas in a family-friendly, pet-friendly neighborhood. The lake and park are only a short distance away! I live in a home with wood floors and plenty of space for animals to play and run around. My home is situated in a secured, gated community.

I have owned and cared for dogs old and young, big and small. My passions in life are animals, nature/hiking and music. I am patient, caring and energetic with a lot of experience on the individual dog, and catering to their unique needs. If you're considering boarding your dog in a kennel, please consider my home instead! I will provide your dog the best home away from home. In my care, your dog will be attended to 24/7. I literally sit on the floor with my laptop next to your dog if they're napping, play fetch with them when they wake up, and take them on walks and outings throughout the day. I will not let your dog out of my sight. Your dog is cared and loved as if they are my own. Of course, we all have to make that occasional quick run to the grocery store or post office. Both of which are less than 5 minutes away from my home. In those circumstances, your dog will be briefly left in a safe area in my home until I return.

When you’re away, I don't want you to worry for a second about your baby. Rest assured I will send you plenty of photo and video message communication during their stay with me. Please see "Services Offered & Restrictions" below;
Looking forward to meeting you and your dog and our journey together!

***Services Offered & Restrictions***: (please read through the following prior to requesting a reservation; it will answer many of the questions you may have)

For all New Guests and their Dogs:
I do ask for Meet-n-Greets. I'd love to meet you and your dog(s) and for us to get to know one another prior to booking your dog's stay.
Please click on the "Request Meet-n-Greet" button in my profile : )
*I ask for new guest reservation requests/inquiries to kindly be at least 3 days in advance of when you are in need my services, (so that we can plan a Meet-n-Greet).

Repeat Guests: May request reservations last minute/with shorter notice.

New & Repeat Guests: Please check my calendar for all my availability! I do my best to update it frequently.

** I am happy to care for a maximum of two dogs provided they are from the same guest home. If you have one dog booked with me, I will not be accepting any other client bookings during your dog's stay (you can be assured I will not introduce your dog to any unknown dogs in my home). **If you see my calendar says "one spot left" I'm actually fully booked.**

Overnight and day care in my home: Dogs will not be unattended. We will have plenty of time for hugs, playing fetch, walks to the park, jogs around the neighborhood and as many potty breaks as each dog desires. If they sleep over they are welcome to sleep wherever they'd like!

**For those overnight stays in which a pickup/dropoff request exceeds the 24 hour time period covered under the overnight booking rate, I do charge one additional, flat-rate day care fee of $30 - which will be sent to you in the form of a custom quote upon receipt of your Reservation Request. This allows you complete coverage and piece of mind under Dog Vacay's insurance policy. (Including a bit of added wiggle room on your pickup time).

New Guests: please bring a copy of vaccinations.

I ask for the dog's own food and treats (to avoid any allergies) and to be current on flea medications. Please bring their collar and leash and anything else they would like to have during their stay. I can follow any kind of feeding schedule that is needed for your dog.

Checkins in owner's home: I am readily available to check in on pets and address their in-home needs per whatever you deem necessary. Including and not limited to; feeding, cleaning, bathing and other basic care.

Pick up and drop off: Need someone to take your pet to the vet or anywhere else and are unavailable? No problem! Happy to be of service.


* For the safety and protection of your dog and myself (including any animals or people your dog may come in contact with on walks and outings) I cannot board or care for dogs who exhibit any signs of aggression toward people or other animals.*

Please note: In compliance with updates in my community HOA rules & regs, I am unable to board certain breeds in my home. Please see the area in my profile with the list of breeds in which this is applies. I tried to include as many breeds they mentioned as possible. I love and am an advocate for ALL dogs. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. This policy (obviously) does not apply to services provided at your home. I thank you for your understanding.

I can testify to Heather's qualifications as a pet sitter based on our several years' experience when she provided both child care and pet care. She never failed to provide top notch care for my little girl as well as our dog and two cats. She was consistently punctual and caring and was easily able to address every need that came up. I would not hesitate to give Heather the highest marks for this position.

Heather is an advocate for animals. She's been a lifesaver to me and my family when we've needed her to care for our pets. When we were away, she'd diligently report back to us with how our babies were doing. I am thrilled to have found her and would recommend her very much so, to anyone in search of a caring, compassionate trustworthy person to care for your pets.

I've known Heather for the past 5 years and have entrusted her with the care for my babies; Selina and Silver. They are small, sensitive dogs with very unique needs. Heather has cared for them when I've been on vacation, some unique circumstances last minute, or even just out for the day and needed her help. I would not trust anyone else with their care. Heather has built her life around her love of animals, music and helping others. She has not only been a great friend to me, and support system for my babies, anytime I've needed her... but she is someone who you and your pets can fully count on, love, and trust.

I've known Heather for several years now and can not say enough nice things about her. She is organized, kind, caring, trust-worthy, responsible and has a love for animals as great as mine :) My world revolves around my precious cat Toby and I trust Heather 100% to care for him and love him as if he were her own. I would whole-heartedly endorse her for this position and I would say that your mind will be completely at ease if you have her as your pet-sitter!

I have known Heather most of my life. We bonded over our mutual love of animals. I would trust her with watching my cats (or dog if I had one) any day. I know she would treat my cats like they were her own. She would do anything to take care of your animal too.

Heather has the ultimate respect for all animals. She is happiest around dogs and cats but loves all creatures. She has a natural ability to connect with animals and always gravitates towards them even when she passes them on the street. If you are looking for someone who will love your pet, talk to your pet and shower it with affection and care, Heather would be the perfect pet sitter! Maria K.

Heather was GREAT! My dog Mitchell had such an awesome time! He was well taken care of and went on lots of walks which he loves! She was great about keeping me posted on how he was doing too which gave me piece of mind. I would definitely leave him in her care again!!

By far, Heather is the most kind, loving, genuine, and honest pet sitter I have ever come across!! She is AMAZING! After one phone call with her, I could feel her energy radiate! Her love for animals is unlike anything you've seen. You can sleep well at night knowing your pet is safe and comfortable. I cannot thank you enough Heather! You are the best! xo

Best dog sitter EVER!! I've tried out several dog sitters on DogVacay and Heather is by far my favorite. She goes above and beyond to make sure her doggy guests feel comfortable and loved. I've already booked her for my next 2 trips :)
