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! *

Very pleased and recommended! Yumi is professional and takes really good care of your dog just like her own. I have been a regular and will be going back again for sure. She updates and sends my dog pics while I am gone. The other dogs in her house are all friendly and playful. Definitely will recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter without being worrisome.

This was our second time leaving Nova with Yumi, and she did great! Nova can be quite the stubborn and mischievous husky, but Yumi showed great patience with her. She managed to slip out of her collar and chewed her leash that was left on the table. When this happened Yumi bought a brand new collar and leash, I offered to reimburse but she said it was okay. Yumi's very sweet and dedicated to providing great service!
