We're Jenny and Dillon, a couple in our late 20s living in a small house in the quiet neighborhood of Bungalow Heaven in Pasadena. Jenny has a full time job at a nearby theme park design company and Dillon works from home as a video editor. We are total dog people and we love having dogs come to stay with us. In the nine months since we began using dogvacay, we've hosted more than 50 dogs in our home!
When we are dogsitting, someone is home with the dog all day and the dog is never alone for more than 1-2 hours. We know how important it is for a dog to have company when acclimating to a new environment and it's important to us to be there to ensure his or her comfort and happiness.
Jenny grew up with a toy poodle named Buttons who came into her life as a puppy. She had the pleasure of caring for him into his old age (17). He was a delicate creature at the end with numerous health problems, including blindness and deafness. Jenny is accustomed to caring for advanced seniors and dogs with medical problems. She has also done a lot of dogsitting for a particularly ill-behaved big ol' pitbull and she has shared some amazing hiking adventures with some big, rambunctious dogs! She loves taking active dogs on exciting outdoor adventures and she also loves having quiet walks and cozy couch time with more subdued or nervous dogs, too. She has a special place in her heart for golden retrievers, poodles, and (of course) goldendoodles.
Dillon grew up in a house full of animals--three dogs, three cats, three parrots, a hedgehog, some rabbits, and chickens too. Many of his relatives are in professions relating to animal care and he has learned from their example throughout his life. He has experience with many dog breeds and many dog temperaments, and he is just as happy running or hiking with a big, high energy dog as he is playing with little dogs. He has a special place in his heart for dachshunds.
We are both avid dog lovers but we're somewhat new in town and we just aren't ready to make the commitment of adopting a dog right now. We are currently a pet-free household. That's why we're thrilled to have the opportunity to spend some time with your dog! Dillon would be your dog's primary caretaker during their visit to our home and he would also be responsible for any daycare duty as he is home all day, but we'll both be home in the evenings to play with our new doggie friends, enjoy their company, and explore Pasadena with them!
