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.

Sergio was wonderful!! The dogs were happy, we got lots of photo updates, and our place was clean (fresh sheets on the bed!) when we returned! Happy to have found such a great dog sitter :)
Sergio was a wonderful caretaker of our eight year-old Golden during our six nights away - he stayed in touch, sent regular photos, took our dog on frequent walks - she was very happy upon our return. Everything was well cared for in our home, he frequent walks - she was very happy upon our return. Everything was well cared for in our home, he washed the sheets, towels and made the bed.

I would highly recommend Sergio we are planning on booking him again soon!

This review is long overdue! Sergio is the best. He's watched our dog Rosie a few times, even over some extended international trips. He stays in our home which we love, less disruption for our dog. He provides updates and pictures proactively to our home which we love, less disruption for our dog. He provides updates and pictures proactively to save me from being a crazed dog mom and asking for them.

Our dog is not easy. She's big and leash reactive. Yet he gives her amazing walks and finds activities that she really enjoys. He also spends a ton of time with her.

He even goes above and beyond. When we realized we needed our kids birth certificate to get into South Africa and we were already in London he looked for it in my disorganized and messy closet and took a picture.

I trust him in our home, with our dog and now with my child's identity information :)
