About Veronica

I am a genuine animal lover with two small Shih Tzus Zoe & Fiona, your fur baby will be a part of our family while you are away. They will enjoy long walks and receive constant love, attention, and be cherished as my own. I know how hard it is to leave them and I will send updates, pictures, and follow any instruction that is given to ensure both their happiness and yours. I have volunteered for animal rescues and I truly love what I do. Please help to adopt the animals at Downey, Carson,Lancaster, S.L.A, and Baldwin Park shelters as they are in desperate need of a loving home*

As usual Duchess had a great time spending the holidays with Veronica and hubby. They showered her with lots of xoxo - i know for sure since she didnt even cry when we went to pick her up ?????? Thanks Veronica, i appreciate all the pics you texted me.
Our dog seemed to really enjoy his time at Veronica's house. He's older and can't handle too much excitement, so a kennel is not an option for him. Veronica took very good care of him!
Look no further!....we needed someone to visit our home, feed and walk our 2 chihuahuas for 2 wks while we were in Europe and I was a nervous mess and afraid to leave them for so long, but Veronica was so understanding and took such amazing care of them. She emailed me photos every day so I could enjoy my trip and not worry. She is a fantastic host, professional, reliable and loving and my pups absolutely adore her. I think they miss her more than they did us!!! I highly recommend Veronica to care for your fur babies!
Veronica, was wonderful and loving with our baby Bo. She answered any questions and concerns i had. She went out of her way to pick up Bo from another location. Veronica is loving and caring for our Bo. Thank you so much for caring for our Baby Bo.
Veronica did a fabulous job in support of daily walks for Baxter while I traveled. He could not have been in better hands! Prompt, courteous, and thoughtful, Veronica was just the best! I highly recommend her services!
Riley seemed very happy and calm when we picked him up - he will definitely make a return visit.
We love Veronica! She's helped us many times, and she's the best sitter and super reliable.
Veronica was awesome! Super accommodating. Made me feel at ease the entire time I was out of the country. Sugar seemed happy when I picked her up. I would definitely book with Veronica again!
Veronica was wonderful with our dog. He had a wonderful time with her!
Thanks Veronica for accepting Gucci on such short notice! She seemed relaxed when we dropped her off and picked her up :) hope she was good for you!
I have used Veronica several times to watch my dog Biggles. She is always so accommodating and Biggles is always excited to see her!
As always, I felt totally at ease on my vacation knowing that Kai was having her own vacay with Veronica! Thank you for taking such great care of my little angel!
We completely trust Veronica. Baxter is always well cared for and happy with her!
Veronica was a wonderful host to our dog Boomer! She was very communicative with how he was doing, and flexible as to his drop off and pick up. We will use her again!
Veronica was amazing! This is the first time I have booked her and she was great. Pepper had a little medical issue and she was able to address it without a problem. Communication was great. Would definitely book with Veronica again. Glad to have found someone on the Westside. Thank you Veronica!!
The girls love the slumber party.
Very conscientious. "Milou" loved his stay & playing with Veronica's 2 small dogs. Milou was given a couple of medications I provided, and everything worked out great.
Veronica is awesome! This was Riley's first (but definitely not his last) stay with Veronica. We received periodic updates and photos of Riley who was clearly enjoying his time with Veronica. Veronica has very positive energy. She's very calm, nurturing, responsible and kind. We highly recommend her! Thank you so much, Veronica!!
We love Veronica - she's a wonderful, responsible, kind, caring and communicative sitter. She made Otto feel so at home and he got good exercise and attention. We will definitely go to Veronica again - she's fantastic. Thank you Veronica!!
Bijou and Lola were so happy and relaxed after staying with Veronica for a couple weeks. She made them feel right and home. We will certainly book again!
The girls enjoy Veronica's company. Without notice, Veronica extended herself and her home for some additional responsibilities we needed. Pawsome!
Veronica was so wonderful. She took great care of Boo and was very responsive.
I have never felt so comfortable leaving my dog with another individual or boarding house as I did leaving Bruce with Veronica. I am so excited to have found Veronica and Bruce is so happy to have become friends with her dogs (same breed/age!). I will definitely send Bruce to Veronica again in the future.
Veronica is the best!
Zoe is always so happy here!
Veronica is so sweet and accommodating! Mr. Boo is normally pretty shy, but he just loved her and her dogs!
Zoe had a blast - as always!
Veronica is the BEST! Zoe is always thrilled to be there!
Veronica had great communication throughout the entire process! I really felt safe leaving my pup with her. Was happy to hear that she would watch my little guy again. Thanks again!
Very easy to communicate with and made the experience very smooth!
she loved her stay with Veronica. Thanks so much.
Reggie always gets lots of love, cuddles and attention when he stays with Veronica! I know he is in good hands during his stays.
I had a great experience with Veronica watching my dog. Looking forward to more Dog Vacays!
Veronica is great--very reliable and great with Griffin. HIghly recommended!
always a pleasure! Thank you Veronica!
Zoe and I both love, love, love Veronica!
Veronica is the best. She is always so wonderful, kind, and accommodating! I don't know how I would survive all my last-minute business travel without her!
This was our first time to leave our dog overnight with a host and Veronica was awesome! Our pup came back happy and exhuasted - just how we like it. Veronica also put any of our fears at ease with pics and texts of our dog enjoying her vacay. Definitely recommend!
Veronica was great with Griffin! She is very responsible and loving. So happy to have found her on dogvacay!
Veronica was wonderful. Kept me updated the entire time I was away with photos and messages. Phoebe came home happy and relaxed because she felt she was in a very good home under excellent care. Thank you so much, Veronica!
As always, Veronica was awesome! She was super sweet and responsive. She cares for Kai as if she were her own. I highly recommend her!
Veronica was great from the booking process all the way through to pick up. It is clear that she really loves dogs, and I know (from all the pictures she sent us) that Finn was well taken care of on his vacay! Thank you!
Veronica was great! She sent constant updates and I always knew what was going on. Einstein loved his time there.
Zoe loves going to Veronica's every time!
Zoe loved being with Veronica, as always!
We love Veronica!
Oreo seemed to have had a great day with Veronica!
Billy loves Veronica!
Zoe's tail wags every time we pull up to Veronica's!
Veronica was wonderful! You can tell right off the bat that she is an animal lover, our dogs warmed up to her right away! Veronica sent pictures of our dogs to us daily which we loved! We highly recommend Veronica to anyone searching for a vacay spot for their pups!
Veronica was fantastic as always!!! My doggie Curtis came home happy and healthy. I am so thankful for Veronica and the love she gives my baby Curtis! Thanks~ Amanda
Veronica is amazing! Not only was she flexible with letting me drop off my dog Curtis in the wee hours of the morning she sent me daily pictures of my doggie relaxing on her couch. He was well taken care of and I felt very comfortable leaving my baby with her.
I highly recommend Veronica! Thanks!
Our 9yr old Multipoo was in need of a little extra TLC after a recent surgery and Veronica's reviews made her a great candidate. A dog lover at heart, she plays with and walks our dog everyday. It has made a huge difference in our dog's spirits and I would definitely recommend Veronica to anyone in the Santa Monica area! She also sends us pictures so we know they are having fun together!
Always a pleasure to use Veronica's services. She's sweet and puts you at ease. Highly recommend.
thanks Veronica (and to your hubby) for being very flexible with our work schedule. I know my dog Duchess was showered with lots of love/cuddles and kisses coz hubby said she was crying when they left :( Thank you it really means so much to us.

Ps.appreciate the pic u sent :D
Very sweet hosts. We were gone for a week and Veronica provided loving care to our beloved Moose. We would highly recommend her.
What can I say about Veronica (and Adam) ... I LOVE them! Our dog, Ms. Charlie, has been to Veronica several times so I think that alone speaks for itself! When we picked up Ms. Charlie yesterday, Veronica already knew the dates of our next trip ... her words - "see you in 10 days!" As long as Veronica and Adam are in town, best bet Ms. Charlie will be seeing them while we're away. Two thumbs up!!! :)
Veronica is an awesome host! Billy came back from a week's stay with her relaxed, refreshed and with a smile on his face! She will be our go-to dog vacay host for any upcoming trips, for sure. HIGHLY recommend her.
Veronica is a wonderful dog host! She sends updates and pictures so I can see what my dog is up to. She gives lots of attention and care. I am so appreciative to have found her!!
Zoe felt lots of love and seemed to have a GREAT time - we'll definitely be back!
Veronica and her husband were great hosts. Lilly got along very well with Veronica's dogs and seemed to enjoy her stay.
My dog Willow just spent the past 4 nights with Veronica and I know she had the best time, because when I picked her up she seemed disappointed to see me. I can also tell she got a ton of exercise because she passed out as soon as she got in the car. Needless to say, Veronica is an amazing host and treated my dog like her own. I usually feel anxious when I leave my dog with someone new, but as soon as I met Veronica I knew that I had nothing to worry about. Now I'm just anxious that Veronica is not going to be available the next time I go out of town!
Veronica was great! Billy was tuckered out and ready for bed after a fund day at Howliday Inn. Billy will definitely be visiting Veronica again!
Veronica is a loving, responsive, and responsible dog "sitter". She provides a "home away from home".
So lucky to have found such a wonderful caretaker for Kai! Thank you for taking such great care of my puppy.
What a great experience! It was Kai's first time at Veronicas. I felt instantly at ease when I met Veronica. Kai had a ball. Veronica sent me a cute pic of Kai during her stay. Thank you!
Veronica was awesome. She sent me pictures of a happy dog and was super easy to work with. Her dogs were adorable and easily got along with my dog. I would definitely use Veronica again.
Veronica was fantastic and sent us multiple pictures of Morty hanging out and looking happy. Morty must have really had a blast and a fun time because all he did when we got him home was sleep. :)
Veronica was great with my Boston Terrier Cooper! He has seizures and requires pills and a liquid medication; She did this with no problem at all! She also sent me pictures daily with updates. When I go out of town again and need a sitter, I will definitely call Veronica first!
Veronica was very sweet and accommodating. She sent pictures to update me on how my dogs were doing. They seemed to really enjoy staying with her! Will definitely contact her again next time.
We've taken Ms. Charlie to Veronica before and I wrote a previous outstanding review. My mention of Veronica has not changed and probably never will. :-) Although our flight got delayed, she was kind enough to have another night with Charlie with no hesitation at all. We're about to book yet another trip and Veronica will definitely be hearing from us again. :-)
Veronica is a dog lover, she's got two adorable older little dogs who she cares for deeply and leaving Wally there was like leaving him with a trusted family member. It's so nice to know you are leaving your dog with someone who is genuine and caring to animals. Highly recommended.
Veronica was so nice and very accommodating! She was very good about keeping in touch. I will use her services again!
What a wonderful experience! Veronica was flexible, sent pictures while I was away, and my pup came back to me with a big smile on his little face!

The last time I left town, my roommate watched my dog and he was supremely depressed: low energy, wouldn't eat, got aggressive towards other people and dogs. Couldn't be happier that he was with Veronica this time, what a difference it made!

Thank you DogVacay and Veronica : )
Veronica was great, she took great care of Sally and she updated me with photos of her throughout my trip. I would definitely love to have her sit Sally again :). Thanks!
Veronica was great! She was very kind and I felt very comfortable leaving my dog, JJ with her. She has 2 cute, sweet dogs of her own so I knew that JJ definitely would not be lonely. It was the first time I had ever left my dog over night and I was a little nervous but Veronica sent me pictures and text message updates to reassure me that everything was going well. I will be leaving JJ with Veronica in the future when I go out of town and would absolutely recommend her.
My husband, Mike, and I first met Veronica and Adam on a "meet-n-greet" visit and they are the nicest people, along with their own two little Shih-Tzu's who are just the cutest. Our dog, Ms Charlie, seemed to take to them as well (which is so important). They invited us into their home and it was so neat and tidy, and spotless and we felt very comfortable that Charlie was in good hands. We chatted for a while getting to know each other and seeing how Charlie acted around their two Shih-Tzu's ... everything was perfect and we were very compatible. I highly recommend Veronica and Adam, and we will definitely be coming back! They really are the perfect hosts for your furry loved one(s)!!!
Molly was happy and relaxed when I picked her up - a very positive experience.
Lexie loved Veronica and her dogs! It was the first time we left Lexie and were so nervous. Veronica sent us a picture every day and Lexie looked so happy and comfortable. When we went to pick up Lexie, she was ready to get in the car with Veronica! So clearly she had a great time and loved her host family. Thank you so much for taking such good care of Lexie!
Veronica is quite positive & caring. She administered medications & enjoyed taking care of my dog. She was also great about taking him at the last minute.
Veronica and her husband were super friendly to me and to Reggie - I came back from my trip to a happy little boy!
Our Auggie loved his vacation with Veronica! We recently moved and he is having a bit of anxiety not wanting to be away from humans. Veronica was patient and understanding about this issue. Auggie was absolutely tired when I picked him up and fell asleep as soon as the car started moving. Great communication and flexibility when our schedule changed. Her dogs are adorable! Auggie will be back! Woof!
Awesome! My dog Dexter can be a little monster but he loved Veronica and she was patient with him and me when I didn't know what time I would be able to pick him up. Happy to have her living nearby and looking forward to having her dogsit again.
Veronica is a great fit for any dog, but she is an especially great fit for special needs dogs. She gives lots of love and attention and does not bat an eye at strange requests from owners. For a truly caring caretaker on the West Side, Veronica is an easy choice to make! Her two pups are very sweet and her apartment is immaculately cleaned. She sends pictures and responds to texts promptly. Veronica is just great.
She is fantantasic and very flexible with time. We got updates and pictures of our dog Chico during the week-end. We highly recommend her.
