About Donna and Jeff

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*Our house is like Grandma's house...a lot of fun without a lot of strict rules. Your dog is treated like our dog with lots of love, fun and entertainment. We have a HUGE backyard, lots of toys, and are close to the beach for fun walks and doggie massage included. Your dog will also sleep with us and eat with us. While we do work outside the home during the day, we come home at lunch to check on the pups and spend weekends at home entertaining our furry guests!
*We have been dog sitting for over 20 years and our friends will tell you that their dogs love it so much, they never want to leave.
*While our ad says 20-40 pounds we will consider dogs up to 60 pounds(same weight as our dog) and under 20 pounds via meet and greet.
**** WE DO NOT ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING BREEDS - Pitbulls or pitbull mixes, Bulldogs, Akitas, Mastiffs, Rottweillers, Dobermans, German Shepherds or any mixed breed that we feel is unsafe for our dog or guest dogs.

**** $20 Daycare is for established clients ONLY who have boarded with us before.
*****If you have more than one dog we will gladly reduce to $70 per night.
****ALL DOGS HOSTED MUST GO THROUGH THE MEET AND GREET PROCESS. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Donna and Jeff are simply the best! They provide a warm, safe and loving home environment for our dog. We never worry about her when we travel because we know she's in excellent hands!
Truly the best place for my girl! Donna and Jeff take such good care of her while we are away! We get pictures all the time, and we never worry for a second that she isn't getting the best care and having the best time while away from us. I will recommend them over and over.

Donna and Jeff are great! They treated our dog Chance like he was one of the family and he absolutely loved playing with their dog Charley. We received pictures or videos every day and we could see how much fun he was having. It was very reassuring to know he was in good hands, safe and happy.

We are so glad to have found someone to take care of our baby as well as we do! I would highly recommend Donna and Jeff!

delighted !
Donna and Jeff are awesome! They are such a pleasure to work with : they made Lola feel at home in no time, provided regular updates with pictures and mostly videos so I can get a sense of how Lola was doing. Knowing Lola, for her to look so happy and playful, she must have felt a lot of love: That makes me so grateful!

I almost never leave reviews but I just had to in this case. We visited LA from the Bay Area and our normal local dogsitters (namely my parents) were not available. We feel incredibly lucky to have found Donna and Rich. They and their dog Charley were so welcoming and took great care of Cookie. Donna sent frequent updates and pictures and gave Cookie daily dog massage. Their house is a perfect environment for dogs -- dog beds in every room, big backyard, and their dog Charley likes to play but is very respectful and calm. I've already recommended Donna and Jeff to a number of people. Cookie's stay ended up being a highlight of our trip.

Awesome, awesome people! Our pup loves it there!
We love going to Donna and Jeff's!
Donna and Jeff were amazing hosts! Keita had a great time with them over Thanksgiving. They are obviously huge dog lovers and sent us tons of pictures and videos so we could see what a great time she was having. Keita can be a little skittish when we leave her with other people but Donna and Jeff made sure Keita met all the other dogs she would be staying with before our trip so she would be comfortable during her stay with them.

i am unsure that I want to really share how we feel about Donna,Jeff,and Charley because they are so terrific we may not get a spot for Winston when we need it
What can we say? Excellent as usual. It's essentially Disneyland for our dog.
We couldn't have been happier with our experience at Donna and Jeff's. From our first introductory meeting I knew our dog would have a great time at their home. Huge back yard for running, toys everywhere, and a great family dog named Charlie who made friends with our dog Chance right away. The only complaint I have is Chance didn't want to leave when we came to pick him up. He had way too much fun.

Don't bring your dog here, they'll never want to leave! Donna, Jeff, and Charley were AMAZING.

Our pup had the best time playing in their fantastic yard and with their huge basket of toys.

I didn't even need to bring my dog's bed which is large and cumbersome because Donna and Jeff have a ton of comfy beds spread throughout their home.

Their yard is so great, plenty of sunny and shaded areas depending on what your pooch is in the mood for, and lots of area to play!

Charley, their pup, is just wonderful. Just a lovey dovey sweetheart that welcomed our dog with open arms. They played together so well and snuggled together, and Charley was very nice to share all of his stuffed toys with my boy.

Donna and Jeff are just wonderful people, you walk into their home which is so warm, cozy and inviting and you feel like you've known them for years. You just get a great sense that they are going to take care for and care about your furry friend just as much as you do.

Donna sent me so many great updates with pictures and videos of my boy having a good time, it really put my mind at ease because I really hate leaving him. Knowing he was in excellent hands made my vacation so much better. We will absolutely be staying with them again!

Donna and Jeff are true dog lovers! They are extremely nice people and, not surprisingly, their dog, Charlie, is a sweetie. Their home is completely dog friendly, with a wonderful, large yard for the pups to play in. This is a perfect place for my dog!

Donna responds to messages right away and is very flexible. She sent me photos of my happy pup, so we let him stay and play the next afternoon while we did pet-unfriendly errands. I expect this will be a long and happy relationship!

Donna, Jeff & their sweet dog Charley gave our Willow a warm, fun and safe home away from home. We didn't have to spend a minute worrying about her. We won't hesitate to call them again in the future. Thank you Donna & Jeff! Chelsea & Craig E.
Donna and Jeff were great hosts for our 6 year old Shiba Inu, and Charley was a great playmate for her.

They are conscientious about what needs to be done to keep our dog safe and comfortable: Donna was keenly aware of our dog's tendency to venture out and made sure they kept all those possible escape windows closed and the door shut. Jeff was carefully going through all the points we listed to make sure our dog's comfortable stay with them.

Charley was a great company for our dog with such a good temperament and playfulness. The daily pictures and videos Donna and Jeff were sending us made us feel connected and were able to see how much fun our dog had during her stay.

We would definitely ask for them to take care of our dog when our next trip comes up. Thank you, Donna, Jeff and Charley!

We couldn't be happier. Donna and Jeff are definitely dog people and the dogs seem to know it. The large yard has shade and the dogs can come and go between an enclosed back porch and the yard. When they're home, the dogs are welcome inside the home with them.

I think my two shelties really did have a dog vacation. Highly recommended.

We loved having Summer over at Donna & Jeff's! Our pup is 10 and we have never boarded her. We usually take her on trips so this was a big deal leaving her behind. They sent us pics and videos everyday which we loved. Summer and their dog Charlie got along great. Huge backyard. Tons of toys that Charlie loves to share. We willdefinitely rebook with this sweet family again!e

We had a great vacation, and it is quite possible our dogs had an even better vacation with Donna and Jeff! Lady and Daisy had a wonderful "second home" for the week we were away. Donna, Jeff and their dog Charley were wonderful hosts. We were kept up-to-date with daily text messages and photos, and Donna and Jeff were super flexible with early drop-offs and late pick-ups, giving medications, and catering to our "picky eater." Thanks again, Donna, Jeff and Charley! We will be back!

Donna, Jeff, and Charlie were amazing! So welcoming and caring. Our Finley had an awesome time running around and around in their huge backyard. They were warm, flexible, and very capable. Finley can't wait for a reunion!
Donna and Jeff are wonderful hosts who love dogs and made our pet feel on vacation while living with them. We will use them again and have no hesitation in recommending them.
Donna and Jeff were wonderful! I had a last minute request for them to look after my dog Max, and they were very accommodating and flexible! Max had a great time and they gave me a toy of theirs to take home with us. Will definitely be coming back to Donna and Jeff soon!
