About Serena

Hello, I'm an energetic and youthful female that stays healthy and active with a doggie companions. I Live in the excelsior in my own house with a large backyard. I work with special needs children/adults focusing on behavior modification and teaching life skills. I enjoy going on walks and runs, figure drawing, interior decorating/home remodeling projects, gardening, and finding entertainment that makes me laugh. I have a very flexible schedule and most animals are usually drawn to me for some reason :) Enjoy!

* House *
I own a 3 story home with an in-law unit and living room dedicated to dog broading. Furniture is doggie covered and protected and I remove the rugs for doggie stay.

* Yard *
It's a doggie paradise in SF. 110 x 25ft. I alllow the dogs to dig, bury bones, covered in mulch, and run up and down a slight hill. (ball fetching heaven)

* Location *
My house is 1 minute from 101 and 280. Prefect if you are dropping off then driving to SFO.

* Schedule *
In the AM's I work on-call. But will always know the night before if I get called in or not. Otherwise I leave the house at noon to go to work, then I'm back at 6pm. Great schedule for doggie playtime/exercise! 2x a week my fiancé works from home.

When your dog stays with SERENA
- I take the dogs out at 6:30am for short walk and breakfast.
- working out during my long AM break, which I take the dogs out for a run/walk and play around in my backyard (throwing the ball if interested)
-The dogs 95% of the time sleep with me unless there's no room left or they prefer their bed or my carpet.
- I'm great at spoiling your animal since I don't own any.

Holiday stay:

My rates are $75 a day from dec 21-Jan 1st
2nd dog- $65

Serena was responsive, friendly, and took great care of my dog Boomer. She sent pictures each day, including from trips to the park and romping around the backyard. Overall a great experience!
Serena is incredible. I booked her at the last minute - we're talking hours before I had to leave - and she got back to me immediately!

Her house is perfect for dogs of any size. Plenty of room to run around inside and out and close enough to, in my opinion, some of the best parks in SF.

Serena and her partner showed Bamboo plenty of love - at their house and even around town! I got updates daily and felt completely at ease knowing my dog was under their care.

I'd rebook Serena in a heartbeat!
Super nice and got daily texts and pictures. Would use her again for future trips!!!
Thank you so much Serena! We were gone for 12 nights and as much as I missed my dogs, Serena's updates kept me confident that they were safe, cared for, and loved. My four dogs have different personalities and needs but Serena was so patient. I was on vacation with a peace of mind knowing that they were in great hands. When we picked them up, they were clean and ready with all their belongings. I will book again with Serena for sure.
Serena was great with our pup, Gus. Flexible and super responsive!
We're happy Serena was available for a last minute booking - thanks for that! It seems our dogs didn't warm up to their surroundings while at Serena's home. It wasn't a good match for us. For the comfort of all parties we won't be booking again.
Serena took great care of our dog Gus. She met with us to go over his schedule, habits, etc, and sent us plenty of photos. And when our crazy dog managed to get sprayed by a skunk during his time with her, Serena bathed him multiple times and delivered him to us good as new.
Serena was a great host for our energetic doberman! She located near McLaren Park, which is dog paradise and has a full backyard for dogs to snoop around in too. Her quiet and caring manner is great for our dog and for us. It was a relief to go on vacation worry free. I highly recommend Serena and would absolutely request another stay with her.
Serena and Doron were great -- very communicative and sent a bunch of pics of the girls during their stay. Our dogs were exhausted when they came home, so we assume they had a great time. Would book with them again!
Serena was super flexible and courteous. Our doggies had a great time -- we know because Serena sent us awesome pictures of our pups while we were away!
Serena took care of our giant pup for 10 days and he was tuckered out when we brought him home. There were multiple other dogs that stayed with Serena at the same time and I think my dog played nonstop. Thanks for taking care of him Serena.
Serena was great! She sent me updates and cute photos of our dog all weekend. I know he was in good hands and had a great time - thanks Serena!
Serena was super! She had no problem handling our big, energetic lab/german mix. He got lots of activity and I could tell was well taken care of. We look forward to using her again in the future!
