About Damaris

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! We live in Santa Monica and we will be home with your dog full time. My sister/assistant & I work from home. We have grown up with dogs from Chihuahuas, and Pugs to German Shepherds. So it goes without saying that care giving and loving animals comes naturally. We've had dogs our entire life & love them very much. Would love to watch your pooch fetch, run play, and lots & lots of petting.
There's air conditioning throughout the house. Your dog will never be punished or caged!
I am a vegan animal lover.
Your pup will feel right at home! We are also very responsible & reliable. There is a giant dog bed they can lay down on! I will provide lots of luv & attention during their stay!

PLEASE NOTE MY SERVICE FEE IS UP TO 24 HR. STAY. EVERY HOUR AFTER THAT IS AN ADDITIONAL $3. EACH HOUR.

Damaris was great! No problems and very accomodating.
Damaris was very easy to contact and it was so easy to book. She even watched the dogs one extra day at the last minute when we had an emergency. The dogs had a great time :) thanks Damaris!!
Damaris was great! She sent daily photos and always responded right away to my test messages asking how Remi was doing.
Damaris was wonderful! She was great with communication and very flexible with pickup and drop off times. She was available by text and even sent several pictures during our dog's stay with her. It was clear that she loves dogs and was happy to watch ours. I will definitely book with her again!

Damaris did such a great job sitting for our dog Sadie! She was so sweet with her! We needed a sitter to stay at our place while we were away and Damaris did that. She updated us with photos and how everything was going. We would definitely use her again.

Damaris was great with our dog while we were in Europe for 10 nights. She even gave him a bath. Would 100% book with her again.
Damaris was great! Will for sure ask her to sit again.
Demaris was great she is very flexible and accommodating. She took in my 14-year-old arthritic dog at the last minute with no problem. I would definitely have him stay with her again.
Damaris is amazing. Always available, super-friendly, lots of photos during the stay and she even gave Sophie a bath before I picked her up! Highly recommended...
Sunny had a great stay again with Damaris. My dog is quite nervous and shy but she came back happy and relaxed and Damaris took great care of her. She's a really kind person and will give so much love to your pet.
Damaris did an excellent job. She was on time and took Sadie for a great walk :)
Damaris was great with my puppy! She was very flexible with schedule changes and sent me a few pictures during the day while I was gone!
Damaris was great with our dog! She was very personable during our meet and greet, and we won't hesitate to have her care for our puppy again :)
Amazing. Now feel confident to go away on vacation knowing that Mandy is loved. Thank you!
We could not have done this trip without Damaris. We had to go out of town over July 4th weekend and she saved the day. I couldn't think of a more kind and caring pet lover to welcome into your home!

She sent us wonderful pictures and messages all through our trip, it really put our mind at ease to know our new puppy was having fun and being well taken care of. Thank you so much Damaris!!!

Damaris is fantastic! She came and stayed with my dog Kristen for a few days while we were at a convention. We had just gotten Kristen the week before and she's a very timid rescue dog so we were hesitant to take her out of the environment she has just begun to get used to. Damaris willingly came and stayed at our apartment with Kristen and never left her alone. I can't even begin to express my gratitude for Damaris. Kristen loved her and Damaris kept her comfortable, clean, fed and exercised. She also gave her her medication with no problems. Will definitely come to Damaris again if we leave town! Highly recommended!

Damaris is a lovely person who truly loves Dogs. Thanks for taking care of our little Guy.
Great puppy sitter!
Damaris is a great sitter and is always thoughtful and willing to go the extra mile with us. We always know that when Chichi is being well cared for and loved when she stays with her. We use her as often as possible! Thanks as always Damaris!
Damaris provided a very positive experience for our little Drama. I would not hesitate to use her again.
Damaris is extremely kind and gentle and my shy dog was very happy w her. She is very quick to reply to texts and the whole process was smooth and stress free. An excellent experience all round!
Wonderful experience! Lucy had a great time. Damaris sent photos and frequent updates, easing our minds. Thank you!
Damaris is so sweet and I can tell my pups had a great time with her!
Fantastic job taking care of my little pup!
Damaris is awesome!! A true dog lover who has a wonderful personality with people and dogs. I had just rescued two dogs from an ex two weeks earlier and wasn't sure how they would respond to a boarder. And this is the first time I used DogVacay so didn't know what to expect.

Within minutes, the dogs warmed up to Damaris and got comfortable in her clean home quickly. I felt very confident and relieved the minute I walked out of her home without the dogs knowing that they would be well cared. While I was away, she kindly sent photos of them, and periodic reports of their activities. I picked them up and they were happy and healthy - thanks to the loving care Damaris provided.

I couldn't have asked for a better pet sitter. AAA++++++

Dameris is #1 for me!

Lucy loves staying with Damaris! She Jason sweet and sends a ton of pictures and updates!
Damaris is clearly a huge dog lover! She was incredibly accommodating with our last minute weekend trip. She was able to squeeze in a home visit the same day I requested and take our little Bessie for the weekend just two days later.

I love that Damaris is home all day with the dogs she sits. It makes me feel so much better that my little baby will be cared for 24/7. This was my first DogVacay experience and Damaris made it easy as can be!

Damaris is so great with Murphy! He never wants to leave when I pick him up and you can tell she enjoys taking care of him.
Damaris took wonderful care of my Annie last weekend. She is kind and loving and I would definitely board with her again!
Lola loved her stay with Damaris! Even with stitches and a cone.
Damaris was wonderful! Very friendly and sweet with our skittish rescue pup, and though we were only gone for a few hours she took some adorable pics of our dog and sent them to us while we were out. Would definitely work with her again!
Damaris was great. When I first met Damaris and Chili I knew that Sugar would be comfortable and well cared for. When I go away again Sugar will have a safe and happy place to spend her vacation!
I wasn't able to meet Damaris prior to leaving my dog with her, so I was a little nervous -- however, any apprehension I had disappeared the second I met her. She is so obviously a huge dog lover, and even her tiny teacup chihuahua was totally unphased by my overzealous French bulldog (most small dogs often don't like him right away and her dog was very laid back and sweet). Damaris sent me lots of photo updates, and when I picked up my dog after four days, he was clearly very happy and you could just tell he loved her. I would recommend Damaris to anyone!!

Damaris was wonderful! She took great care of our dog Pompeii while we were out of town and was flexible when we had to add extra days at the last minute. Pompeii is a rescue dog and can be shy and nervous around new people, but he was super happy when we picked him up! :) Thank you Damaris!!

Damaris was a great fit for our dog Zara. Her calm, friendly, reserved demeanor helped Zara, a young, anxious rescue dog, feel comfortable. Zara did much better after a week with Damaris than after 1/2 a week with a local boarding facility. We would gladly have Zara stay with Damaris again.

Damaris was such a sweet lady and I was so thankful to find her while I was vacationing in California. She treated Coby with extra love and attention and even let him sleep in the bed! Believe me when I say Coby is like a forth child to me and I try to bring him everywhere, but sometimes you just have to board your baby ! I recommend Demaris as a little home away from home.

Fantastic as always!
Damaris took care of Bailey for 8 days and did a great job keeping us updated on how he was doing. He seemed very happy with his stay! Thanks Damaris!
Damaris is great!
We hate leaving our pup behind when we travel, but having her stay at Damaris' always makes us feel better. We know she's having a great time and is being take care of.
Damaris was wodnerful. Our Mochi came back to us happy and well taken care of!
Watson had a great time with Damaris in Santa Monica. He came home a very happy hound!
Damaris is simply the best!! Will always use her.
Damaris took great care of my greyhound Chase. She's a very sweet person. She even took pictures of Chase It's nice to have a dog sitter close by my house. Will definitely see her again the next time I'm travelling and need a sitter for Chase!
Damaris was great. Took wonderful care of our Mochi. Thanks!
Great care of my dog and communication as always!
Damaris is the best! We will always choose her to take care of our babies.
Damaris is great with Carlie!
Damaris was great! It was really easy to communicate with her and set up drop off/pick up times, and she was flexible and worked with our somewhat changing schedule. She also sent us daily picture updates of our pup while we were away, which made us feel at ease. And Austin was in great spirits when we picked her up. Would definitely use Damaris again!

Damari sent tons of pictures and was very great with sending updates. Carlie was a very happy girl!
Damaris is amazing! This was Cosmo and Zoeys first time away from home and they seemed so happy and relaxed when we picked them up. Damaris sent us tons of pics and updates. She really has a gift for taking care of dogs. You can tell she's an animal lover and provided a safe and nurturing home away from home. Highly recommend!
