About Sergio

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
It’s not uncommon for me to spend up to 24 hours per day with a dog I’m sitting. A dog in my care will enjoy plenty of walks, occasional field trips to Ocean Beach or Dolores Park, and lots of snuggles and affection.

Growing up, my father was a farmer and my mother treated our home as a sanctuary for every stray animal she came across. I’ve been dog/cat sitting independently for several years and was thrilled when a friend told me about DogVacay.

When I dog sit...
+ I spend most (occasionally all) of the day at home with your pooch. I work remotely and, thus, spend lots of time keeping your dog company.
+ Dogs in my care receive at least one long walk per day with shorter walks interspersed throughout.
+ Longer stays often include outings to Fort Funston, hiking in the Presidio, play time at Golden Gate/Corona Heights dog park, visits to the beach, and/or picnics at Dolores Park.
+ I understand that some dogs are more comfortable sleeping alone and/or in a crate, but welcome dogs who are used to sleeping in a bed.
+ Your dog will receive TONS of cuddles, exercise, affection and be treated with kindness and respect.
+ I send detailed emails every 1-2 days with pictures and am always reachable via text or phone.
+ For stays exceeding five nights - and for dogs that are amenable to it - I'm happy to give your pup a bath before I leave.
+ I can gather the mail/newspaper and water indoor plants.
+ If in-unit laundry facilities are available, I will change the bedding and wash any towels before I leave. If they're not available, I will strip the bed.

I’m experienced in watching anything from a Maltese puppy to a 3-year-old lab all the way to a 14-year-old Golden Retriever who was blind and deaf. I am comfortable with dogs who have dog- and/or stranger-aggression as well as dogs who love everything and everyone they meet.

Having Sergio stay with our dogs puts us at total ease! We know the pups are on great hands while he is there, he sends pictures so we can see how well they are doing, and we are always happy to come home to a clean place. I've seen how much the dogs love him and even felt jealous because they wanted to play with him more than me!! We really trust him completely and never worry about our apartment or dogs when he is with them. He is easy to communicate with and coordinate the stays. Always professional. No complaints at all!!

Outstanding. Sergio was the consummate professional from our meet and great, to the minute he arrived to take care of my lab puppy, through the end of the weekend.

I had to leave on a business trip out of town. Sergio sent photos as soon as he arrived, and all throughout the weekend. (Great shots too!)

He was constantly available if I had a question, but more so just kept me feeling secure that my pup was being cared for.

At the end of the weekend, my flight was delayed, and I was a little panicked about what to do. Sergio assured me there was nothing to worry about, and stayed longer than he was obligated to. I really appreciated that.

I came home to a happy, healthy, tired puppy, and a place that looked better than when I left it.

I hope to use him again in the future!
