About Yumi

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Yumi. I have been being a host at DogVacay over a year now. I have started taking care of doggies since 2013, so I am very comfortable with the job and happy with what I am doing right now. I do have regulars, so there are always doggies at home besides mine. Most dogs tend to get along really well, and we have an ample space for doggies to run around. I started being a host, because I like dogs and I like to interact with them. I really like their good vibes. I try to give lots of attention and love while they are staying here.

Here are things that I am good at: Give them fresh water, food, treats on time. Give lots of love. Give oral medication, eyedrops if needed and so on. However, I lack many things as well. I would like to work on things when you request me, and even though I don't know whether I can manage things perfectly, I will try my best. I am an easy person, and I believe interactive & sincere communication can make everything better.(my major was Mass communication ;)

We have a backyard which is surrounded by brick walls and we only use backdoor in order to prevent them from running away.
Doggie door is connected to the backyard, so they can go in and out whenever they want, but we close the doggie door at night, in order to make them sleep inside of the house. We also have a swimming pool at the backyard. Golden or Labrador retrievers love to swim, but I haven't seen other kinds of dogs jump in to the pool by themselves until now.

I am home most of the time. However, Sunday is the day which we go to church, and we spend time at church about 2-3 hours.

Rabies, and bordetella vaccines are required. I also encourage your dog to take flea medicine or have Frontline on their skin before the arrival of the boarding/daycare.

* About Meet-n-greet; Meet-n-greet always takes place at the backyard of my house. 80% of new guests tend to do #1, and #2 in the house, so it is good to have it on sunny day at the yard! *

Yumi really helped me and my family have a great Thanksgiving.

I had an out-of-state family trip this past holiday, and taking my dogs wasn't an option. However, I had never used Dog Vacay before, so I was unfamiliar about the process.

I was able to look through Yumi's profile and read her reviews. I was really impressed with what others have said about her and how she cares for their dogs.

Yumi also got high ratings from her past clients, and I was also able to message her to ask more questions (as I have a dog with specific needs).

We were able to schedule a meet and greet--from there, I felt very comfortable with her. Her home is set up well for caring for dogs.

She gave my two dogs a bath on the day we were supposed to pick them up so that they would be clean.

My dogs were so tired from all of the playing. I would definitely use Yumi's service in the future!

Yumi was great, she helped me and my friend out by pet sitting our 3dogs. She was accommodating with the drop off and pick up time and she kept us informed through messages.We received lots of pictures of the dogs and on the last day she even bath them all.

Yumi was wonderful with my pups and they fell in love with her. Her family is so friendly and they all have a very calm presence. I will definitely use her again and love that we are neighbors. The bath is a very nice touch at the end of the stay since my dogs seemed like they played so much and were certainly dirty before they got washed. When I picked them up they slept for two days afterwards and were so happy!

Yumi was very easy to work with. She sent lots of photos and was understanding when I came late to pick up my dogs.
This was my first time using Dogvacay. I wanted my dogs to play around with someone could take care of him instead stay home alone. I chose Yumi because she have a lot of good review on her profile and she responded all of my question really quick. On drop off day, she introduced my dogs to her regular clients in the home, they are very friendly and listen to her really well. Then she offered us to take a look where our dog is play and sleeping. She was willing to answer any questions or concerns i had. I got updates daily on how they were doing and was even sent a lot of cute pics. The day of pick up, my dog was tired from all the play time they had. Thank you Yumi for caring for my baby. On the next day, my dog was kind of sad because there is no one he could plays with like in Yumi's house. Yumi is really good dog sitter, I would recommend her to any one.

This was my first time using Dogvacay. I wanted my dogs to be able to roam around as opposed to being in a cage at a local pet boarding facility. I chose Yumi for several reasons, she not only had great reviews but, repeat clients. On drop off day, she introduced my dogs to her regular clients in the home, then we all went outside. I appreciated the spacious backyard and so did my dogs. I hung out a bit with Yumi to chat as dogs explored. She was willing to answer any questions or concerns I had. I was at ease. I said good bye as they were in good hands. I got updates daily on how they were doing and was even sent some cute pics. The day of pick up, my dogs were both excited to see me and tired from all the play time they had. Thank you Yumi for caring for my 'boys'. For those who are leary about this, don't be. Try it out, look for any details in the person's page you choose that are a concern for you and your furry loved one. Check out Yumi's page. Thanks Yumi for a positive experience. See you soon!

We are so glad that we selected Yumi to watch over Rex and our puppy Murphy. Yumi definitely has a genuine care for dogs and this explains why so many others trust leaving their dogs with her. There was already a handful of other dogs staying with Yumi when we dropped our boys off. The entire experience coordinating with Yumi was pleasant as she is always quick to respond and accommodating. We a really appreciated the daily photo collage updates and videos during our dogs' stay with her. Best of all, Yumi took the time to bathe/groom our dogs before we picked them up! What a lovely surprise that is above and beyond what other sitters do for Yumi's rate! With no hesitation I highly recommend Yumi to watch over your pups and look forward to leaving Rex and Murphy with her again.

Yumi was a fantastic host and will definitely be my go-to from here on out! She has a very easygoing personality and from the minute meeting her I could just tell my dog was going to have a good time at her home. She texted me daily updates and photos, and asked me questions whenever she was unsure about something.

Yumi is very calm and patient and did not let frustration get the best of her when my dog was being stubborn receiving a bath at the end of the vacay. The bath is something she offers for the end of their stay and I definitely appreciate the effort she puts in, A+ service!

Yumi was so responsive to setting up times to meet and was a wonderful host. You will have no worries leaving your little ones in her care. She is so sweet and loving and sends you frequent updates. The only bad part is I think my little furry one would have preferred staying with Yumi and her friendly pack of doggie playmates than going home with me and leaving his playmates behind! I highly recommend Yumi and will definitely have my doggie stay with her again.

I had a scheduled trip to San Diego and needed a sitter for my poodle mix, Panda. I was a bit hesitant in looking hiring someone online. When I came across Yumi on Dogvacay she was given good ratings so I decided to leave Panda with her over the weekend. When I dropped him off he was the happiest dog! He played with other dogs and I was getting updates (with pictures) daily. I am so thankful I found Yumi she is AWESOME!

Yumi's place is great! Puppy Momo enjoyed her vacation at Yumi's place and the company of the other pups very much, which are very friendly and non-aggressive. Yumi sends photos and updates everyday. She also responds quick and is pretty accommodating. I trust her with Momo completely and that feels great when your on vacation relaxing. Momo always smells clean and fresh when we pick her up which is a huge bonus! Thanks Yumi! Your wonderful!

Excellent !! Thank you soooo much !!
Excellent host, prompt responses. My Shorkie Momo loves her service and onsite companions. Our puppy will certain revisit!
Yumi was wonderful with our dogs. We left our two maltese dogs with her for 10 days and I know they had a great time with her. Yumi has such a calm and kind hearted disposition, I felt comfortable right away leaving our dogs with her. One of our dogs loves to cuddle and she was able to provide him with lap time. Our dogs got a chance to socialize and play with the other dogs along with Yumi's son and husband. She has a nice sized back yard and she often has other dogs she takes in. I was a little worried because she has a swimming pool in the backyard and our dogs have never been tested in the water, but they were fine.
While we were on vacation, Yumi sent us numerous photos which we so looked forward to and appreciated.
I was very surprised to see our dogs so clean when we picked them up! I knew she would bathe them but didn't think she'd do such a fantastic job! They were so fluffy and clean.
Yumi will definitely be our go to for our future trips away. Thank you Yumi!

Yumi was very caring towards Charlie. She was always fast to respond to my text messages in regards to Charlie. Every day I received a text with a photo collage of my pup. She seems like she genuinely cares for your dog like it's her own. I've had other experiences where the sitter would let Charlie roam around the house and not really give him attention. But with Yumi it was different. I wouldn't go to any other sitter than Yumi. I highly recommend her.

Yumi is a wonderful individual. We are so lucky to have her! She is so loving and caring with my dog. She sends daily update pictures. My dog seems to love visiting Yumi.
It was my first time with Yumi and she was excellent! She took care of Diego like he was her own. Yumi went out of her way to ensure that Diego did not feel homesick. Thank you for all your great pictures and for taking great care of him. I highly recommend using Yumi, and would use her again.

Yumi is perfect. Coco had so much fun and came back super clean and tired out. Yumi sent us many photos to keep us updated! There were plenty of other dogs to keep Coco company!
Yumi is the perfect host. I've always left my pet, Lady, with Yumi when we go out on vacations. This time, I was hosting a shower and just needed an overnighter for Lady. Yumi was so gracious and Lady came out the next evening clean and happy.
Yumi was so wonderful! Our dog Annie had a wonderful time in her big backyard running around with the other dogs. Yumi sent us updates and pics every day which made it easier to be away from our pup. We will definitely use her again!
My dog Chloe loves staying with Yumi! She is the the perfect dog sitter for a an over concerned dog owner like me. She genuinely loves her job and takes dog care very seriously. When I had to go on a family vacation, Yumi took care of my Chloe for 2 weeks. During my trip, Yumi sent pictures and text updates that kept me at ease. I've used Yumi's boarding service again this past weekend, and everything went well as usual. Chloe even made some friends there! I highly recommend Yumi and will continue to use her boarding/daycare services in the future.

Our dog loves going to Yumi's! He could hardly wait to get in the gate to begin his weekend of fun! We always have peace of mind, knowing he is well-cared for, and happy. Yumi sends videos, pictures and texts each day to update date us on our dog's wonderful adventures. We are so happy we found Yumi.

Yumi is an excellent host. You can always be sure that your pet will be well taken care of. If you wish, Yumi will keep you posted with pics and texts. I have several vacations this year and I hope she will always be available to take care of my pet, Lady.

Yumi was wonderful!! Our puppy had a fantastic weekend, playing with his new furry friends. Yumi has a lovely yard for the dogs to enjoy, and is very careful to keep all the dogs safe. She sends videos, pictures and updates several times a day, and even gave my puppy a bath, so he came home fresh and clean. We will definitely be using Yumi's services again!

Pepper and Pudding love their stay! Yumi send us pictures of our darlings and knowing that they are in good hands, enjoying their holiday as much we are makes us feels more at ease.
We needed a sitter super last minute and were so grateful that Yumi accepted our request. She has a beautiful spacious yard, and my dog was immediately at ease prancing around her yard, and followed the other dogs into the house without a backward glance at me! Thank you, Yumi, Koa will definitely be back!

We love Yumi!
Yumi was wonderful! Our goldendoodle went nuts in her backyard and made several friends. Love the updates that yumi gives throughout the stay. Would highly recommend her!
Once again our girl came home happy and tired. She has made some friends at Yumi's and she loves it when we pull up to her house. Thanks again for watching our girl.
Yumi is awesome! I like that she sends us pictures and collages of Nami. Looks like Nami loves it there also :) Thanks Yumi!
Yumi makes us so comfortable knowing that our girl is happy there.
My wife and I are so happy with the care and attention yumi gave our girl. When we received an update on how Kayger was doing from yumi. While in Costa Rica, We were both surprised and relieved. It made us comfortable knowing she was happy and in good hands. We are using Yumi from now on, even on short trip just knowing she's having fun there.

Yumi was great! We hope to work with her in the future. Love the photos and videos she sent us.
I have taken my dog, Lady, 2 times to Yumi and have another vacation coming up and no question about it -- I have already sent a request to take Lady to Yumi again. She is always our first choice for dog boarding because we fully trust her and our dog always comes back home and clean. Thank you, Yumi.

Yumi was great with my dog,Bailee. I was nervous to leave my dog with someone I didn't know well. Yumi texted me updates and photos every day to let me know how Bailee was doing. It looked like she was having a great time with other dogs from the photos. Yumi even bathe Bailee before I picked her up in the morning. I will definitely use Yumi again in the future. Thanks Yumi!

Yumi is great!!!!! I took my dog honey bear for 2 weeks.
She has a nice big shaded yard with grass. Very caring and sweet person. She sent me photos and messages about my dog's condition everyday so we didn't have to worry about our dog at all.
My dog enjoyed her vacation with Yumi and other dogs. I will definitely take my dog to Yumi again.
Highly recommended!!!

We have been regular for months. I believe Bibo, my dog would give Yumi 10 paws if he can review here, the pictures of happy faces speaks all. We’ll be coming back soon :-)
This was our second time using this service with Yumi and all I can say is that Yumi is AMAZING!!!! She makes you feel welcomed into her home. Provides great daily pictures of your baby (pet). She truly shows love and compassion. Treats your baby (pet) as if they were her own. I recommend Yumi to anyone who wants their baby (pet) to be treated with lots of love!

BEST!
My dog really loves staying at Yumi's. Will definitely book again.
Yumi was a great hostess. From the very first meet and greet request, she responded promptly and our meeting went well. This was our first time leaving our dog, Lady, away from home overnight so we were quite concerned.
But again, Yumi, updated us daily and sent pics. When we arrived to pick up Lady, she was happy and clean (Yumi bathed her). I would not hesitate to leave my dog with her every time we go out of town.

This is my second time having my dog Zeke stay with Yumi. Yumi has been an awesome host. Above and beyond my expectations. She is always very responsive, and always made me feel at ease that my dog was taken care of. She kept me updated with multiple photos of Zeke while he was staying with her. I will definitely be leaving Zeke with Yumi next time I go out of town. Thank you Yumi for your awesome service!

As usual we feel very comfortable bringing our sweet dog to Yumi. Her big yard lets him exercise and explore and she sends plenty of photos so we see how he is doing.
Yumi herself is a lovely person whom both people and dogs automatically trust and like.

Once again, great!
My dogs Shadow and Choco both stayed with Yumi for quite a few days, and they both seem to really like her and the place. She is very good with the dogs and has a way with them. I feel safe as she constantly send me pictures of my dogs and I always know what they are up to. The dogs that are usually there are all very friendly and they play with each other safely. It is a very dog friendly environment and I strongly recommend anyone to give Yumi a shot.

We left our dog Pogi with Yumi for a week and she took great care of him. She had a nice, clean house and a large backyard for the dogs to run around in.

Yumi kept us constantly updated with pics and videos and even gave him a much needed bath before we picked him up.

Our dog truly enjoyed his vacation, especially hanging out with the other dogs in the large backyard!

Definitely recommend Yumi, and we will probably be bringing our dog back even for just dog sitting.

Yumi was amazing! She sent frequent picture updates and even gave my dog a bath! Couldn't have asked for anything more. Definitely would recommend to anyone.
Yumi was great! She kept us updated with text messages and pictures throughout Molly's stay. She truly loves dogs and we will definitely be using her again in the future! Thanks again Yumi!
Yumi is great host. She sent picture updates and reply message promptly. I can't thank enough the good care for Bibo and effort managed the messy hair. He seemed so happy and made friends there, we are definitely going back!
Yumi and her husband were wonderful! Our puppy loved playing with their sweet dogs and was happy (and worn out) when we picked him up! We will definitely be using their services again!
Thank you Yumi !!! Jamie & Dodo enjoyed their stay and looking forward to see you soon~ Thanks for taking good care of them.
Yumi was an excellent host for my dog Mokee. She sent pictures of my dog and kept me updated on how much fun he was having. It was a pleasure meeting her and definitely recommend her to all my friends who need to board their dog.
Excellent stay. Couldn't be happier with Yumi!
WOW! We were going on a 12 day vacation and had to leave our Golden Retriever with someone. We're so glad we meet Yumi, as she's able to take care of our dog with less than a week's notice and boy did she really take good care of our 2 year old dog. Yumi was great throughout, she send us pictures updates often and she has a huge backyard for the dogs to run around at. Her house is very clean and just a perfect place for dogs to hangout and play. We would not hesitate to recommend Yumi to anyone who needs help care for their dog while you're away. Thanks Yumi!

Yumi was so sweet. This was my first time using this service and Yumi made feel very comfortable. She sent me text messages and pictures every day to keep me updated on what my dog was doing. I recommend Yumi to all doggie parents!
Yumi took care of our 1 1/2 year old golden retriever for 10 days. This was the first time she had been away from home. I highly recommend Yumi! She sent us daily texts and even a video. We will definitely use her again. Daniel-
We are so glad we found Yumi to watch our dog, Luke. She has the most warm and kind personality which dogs pick up on. Luke immediately went to her with tail wagging. Her yard is perfect for dogs to run about and she always has at least 3 others dogs there for Luke to play with.

Communication wise, Yumi was quick to respond to my requests and punctual for the meet and greet, and for all drop off and pick up times. She also kept me at ease during my trip by sending wonderful photos of Luke and messages about how he was doing.

We could not have asked for a better sitter than Yumi!

First time ever leaving my dog with a stranger and he really liked her! Welcoming and kept me up to date status with my boy! Would definitely recommend again!
Yumi was very flexible with the schedule and our dogs had a wonderful time staying at her house with large backyard. They seemed to enjoy playing in her yard all day and enjoyed every minute during their stay. I highly recommend Yumi to anyone. She was very friendly and well experience in handling our three dogs. She gave us a discount for having multiple dogs and provided warm and safe environment to our dogs during their stay like her own. I really appreciated all the love and caring she provided during their stay. Couldn't ask for a better host. Thank you Yumi
