Hello, my name is Heather! Please contact me even if my calendar notes I am unavailable. Half the time when I've marked unavailable, its due to an appointment on that given day, which may only take up an hour of my time, and have the rest of the day and night free! I would be so happy to accommodate you and your dog even on those days : )
I am a home-based free-lancer. I live in Calabasas in a family-friendly, pet-friendly neighborhood. Additionally, the lake and park are only a short distance away! I live in a home with wood floors and plenty of space for animals. The home is situated in a gated community.
I have owned and cared for dogs old and young, big and small. I am patient, kind, 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. Looking forward to meeting you and your dog and our journey together!
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 read through my services offered and restrictions below;
Services offered & restrictions:
I do ask for meet and greets for all new guests! Please request a meet and greet in my profile : )
Overnight and day care in my home: Dogs will never be left unattended. We will have plenty of time to play catch, walk to the park, 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!
**Please note; 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). Here's a reservation as an example: 3 nights reserved, 3pm dropoff on day one, 3pm pickup on last day (no additional charge here) - as this all falls within the 24 hour time frame for each night. If the pickup/dropoff time exceeds but is very close to the 24 hour time frame, I will happily waive the additional flat rate fee of $30. Any questions, just ask!
Know that when your dog is in my care, they have my complete attention and love, I do not let them out of my sight.
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.
Please note: In compliance with my HOA rules, I am unable to board any Pit Bull breeds or Doberman Pinscher breeds in my own home. Pit Bulls and Dobermans are some of my favorite dogs out there. This policy does not apply to services provided at owner's homes.
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.
Please note: 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.
