About Patricia

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
It will be 'Just like Home' and they will enjoy the holidays too! I have always had a great fondness for dogs and have, over years, had my dog's buddies come for sleep overs and play days.
I enjoy watching them play together and get to understand their different personalities - little dogs need, at times, encouragement to eat while others would eat everyone's food! So feeding time is always a time to watch over. We provide home cooked meals - luscious healthy treats ( when permitted in owners instructions) we are close to several parks and a dog park so walks are included - my husband helps with the walks ( fortunately we both work from home).
Our property has a 6ft high wall or fence surrounding the back part of the house - where the doggies have their freedom - so no discovering what is on the other side of the fence is possible. I have trained many dogs with the gentle clicker method by Paul Owen, but I am not a professional trainer - if you have a young pup that needs to know and understand some basic commands, I can help with that during his stay if you wish. My dog Winston, my assistant, will help your dog overcome any separation anxiety issues, he will calm your dog with playfulness and love.
One of my skills, is to deliver natural therapeutic assists, these assists help a dog to relax and eliminate any stress due to being in new surroundings with new people and dogs. I know it is hard for you to leave your doggie for a day, a week or more - but trust me he/she will be in good caring hands.

Patricia is very reliable. My dog comes home as if he's been well taken care of. I would recommend Patricia.
Kirby always comes home happy and well cared for. Patricia is the best!
Patricia took amazing care of Kirby, as always. It is great to have someone we can trust with Kirby's care when we go out of town. This was a last minute trip and Patricia was able to accommodate us! We have used Patrica 3 or 4 times now and recommended her to friends!! Thank you Patricia!!!

Patricia was amazing and our little guys were so well taken care of. I wouldn't imagine going anywhere else!
I have found the perfect loving place for my fur babies to stay when I vacation. Patricia was wonderful with my two dogs. She even cleaned out their eyes when I forgot to mention that this was an issue. They were like one of the family and this meant the world to me.

Patricia is awesome! Our doggie's tail was consistently up like a waving flag in the photos she sent us :) We also got numerous updates from her every day, including all the latest gossip about how the friendship between our dog (Maxi) and his new girlfriend (Pixie) was progressing :) She even cooked our picky-eater doggie rice and chicken. We left Maxi with her for over 2 weeks while we were away and we didn't feel worried one bit. I highly recommend Patricia.

Patricia was very flexible with my needs. I asked to bring him by her house a few days early to get used to the place before leaving him there for several days. Patricia was open to that suggestion. It made me feel better to do this! When I picked up Li'l Dude, he was happy to see me, as usual, but he wasn't wildly crazy, making me think he was quite taken care of while there.

This was the second time we left our Yorkie with Patricia. She takes amazing care of him and sends pictures and updates frequently! Definitely makes us feel like our boy is in good hands.
This review is long overdue. I've been leaving my 2 Boston Terriers with Patricia for awhile now. My dogs love her. She is loving, attentive and nurturing. She is always super quick to respond, accomodating and easy to get a hold of. And she works from home and has a great outdoor space. Definitely recommend her!

Ninja has been coming to Patricia for around 6mo now. He LOVES it. He gets very excited as soon as we arrive and he separates from me very easily, he gets to play with other small/medium breeds and always comes home happy, exhausted and more calm. Patricia really understands dogs better than anyone I've ever met. She accommodates my little guys anxiety and knows how to best acclimate him to a new place. Ninja goes here pretty often and runs to her like family. I have been nothing but 100% satisfied with each of my visits.

We planned a big family vacation on the east coast and wanted to make sure Cami had a fun vacation too. This is the ideal stay for small to medium dogs who have the run of the house and yard. Patricia and family give them a lot of human attention and there is always a happy pack of doggy friends to keep Cami active.

Patricia did an excellent job hosting Zipper. We got pictures and updates every day, and when we picked him up he was happy and in great shape.
I am so lucky to have found Patricia and her husband Walter for my beloved fur kid Chloe. I have to go on travel on and off for work and it became necessary to look for a new dog sitter whom I could trust to take care of Chloe's special needs. Although Patricia lives not close to me, I decided to entrust Chloe with her as everything seemed and turned out perfect with her :)

Their house is very calm set in a beautiful tranquil surrounding; there are no stairs (so much better for dogs!) and a lovely very secure outdoor space that has nooks and crooks to explore and plenty of grass to run around. The dogs have free access to the yard during the day, making any bladder problem no problem anymore.
Patricia has two lovely king spaniel dogs that welcomed my dog very sweetly and Patricia's kind spirit soothed my anxious dog immediately. My dog has a few health problems and needs lots of intricate food requirements and Patricia followed it all to a T. Her and her husband took my sweetheart for walks in the park too (rare enough even with great dog sitters) and I could not be happier. Chloe stayed with Patricia and Walter for 8 days, (one or both of them are with the dogs at all times) I got many wonderful pictures and many notes about how Chloe was doing! There were other dog day visitors too (but not too many and not very large one of whom Chloe is scared) and she had a great time playing with them. Although Chloe is not good with men, it took not very long for her to fall in love

Patricia was wonderful and our little Yorkie was sad to leave. We will be booking again and highly recommend others to do so as well.
Fabulous
Great
Excellent
So grateful to have found Patricia and her husband to look after my pups. Spirit and Bandit were well taken care of. They had plenty of space to stretch their legs, other dogs to play with and Spirit got walked. I will definately leave my dogs with Patricia again if she is available.

Another great dogvacay for Tuffy at Patricia's house. Tuffy loves going over to Patricia's. We'll be using Patricia again very soon.
Our dog's stay for daycare at Patricia's went awesome. Patricia sent pictures and messages during the stay, which was great. When we picked our dog up, she was happy. We are also big fans of Patricia's dogs so it was a bonus to say hi to them as well. We look forward to future bookings with Patricia for both daycare and overnight stays.,

Patricia was an awesome host and provided constant photo updates
This was the first time that I felt so comfortable with leaving my pet. I went on a meet and greet with Patricia and saw her lovely spacious home that is just uniquely wonderful for dogs.There are plenty of places for them to roam and romp,many trees ,plants, etc.It's a peaceful sanctuary of sorts for our four legged babies. Patricia is sensitive and loves our babies and her love for our sweeties is transparent.
Ja'Bo my two year old Pom just wore his self out playing with the other doggies..
Patricia sent me pictures of Ja'Bo and I know all his expressions and Ja'Bo was always smiling.
I will be a repeater for Patricia service's forever!

Patricia was an awesome host. She took great care of Kirby and sent us pictures everyday with a note! We would definitely recommend Patricia and will use her again!
Patricia is amazing! She is so kind and treats our puppies so well. Every time we pull the car up outside her home they start wagging away knowing the playtime that awaits them. We will continue to bring our babies to Patricia every time we travel because we know we'll have peace of mind and will receive plenty of photo updates throughout the day!

Another great stay with Patricia! Tuffy wagged her tail and ran to Patricia's door when we arrived. She was very happy to spend a couple of day over Thanksgiving with Patricia.
As always, Isa was excited upon arrival at Patricia's and she had another wonderful stay with her and her brood!
Our two pups loved their stay with Patricia. Koda and Cassie were so happy and well cared for. Patricia and her husband worked with them and they came back better behaved then when I dropped them off. Patricia had them sitting and lying down on command, and she helped to socialize them with other dogs. The updates and pictures she
sent were reassuring and darling!! I was so lucky to
find Patricia.

Patricia is the sweetest! She takes such good care of our Bostons- Duke & Muggsy. They come home pooped so I know they're getting their exercise! She also sends tons of videos and pics of the dogs lounging around her house and her beautiful yard. I've used her a couple of times now and will continue to use her!

Patricia is a gracious and welcoming host. Isa loves being under her care and cannot wait to get in the door. It is becoming a home away from home.
Isa had another wonderful weekend with Patricia and her pups. She is so excited upon arrival that I have to hold her back so Patricia can open the door. It is home away from home, for sure!
Patricia is amazing! She is very sweet and easy-going. She also sent us daily updates with pictures that put our minds at ease during our time away from our pup. Her property is perfect for small and medium size dogs. Our basset hound came back so happy and tired. We will definitely use her services again. Thanks Patricia!

Patricia is the awesomest of the most excellent people in this world! And in addition, she happens to love dogs! No words can express her loving attention to our puppy, despite his high energy.

Thank you for embracing Boomer into part of your loving world!

Patricia's home was very homey and comfortable for my older dog, Biscuit. Lots of places to roam and check out. Patricia was kind and conscientious.
Patricia is fantastic! Very sweet and caring. She sent me updates, pictures and was super flexible with scheduling. She took them on walks and has a great backyard space where the dogs could play. My dogs loved her and her dogs and were exhausted when we got home! I already booked with her again!

Another great dogvacay for Tuffy at Patricia's house. She is completely comfortable and settles right in when I drop her off. Very glad to have found Patricia so that I have a worry free vacation.
Both of our dogs were spent! Patricia B. made them feel so comfortable and welcome. We received pictures daily. The follow up and status updates made the time away from our pets less worrysome. Great service from an extraordinary Host. Thanks Patricia.

Patricia was amazing. She was very quick to respond and took great care of our furry baby.
This was our first experience with Dogvacay and I just want to say how happy I am to have found your services and Patricia. Patricia was superb; our experience with her was exceptional. She was very sweet and kind to our Maltese Scooter. When we returned from our vacation we can tell that Scooter enjoyed himself on his Dogvacay as much as we did ours knowing he was in good hands. I will most definitely use Patricia again. Thank you, thank you & thank you!!!

Isa had a wonderful time at Patricia's with her and her other dogs. She runs to the door when we pull up to her house. She remembers!!! I love knowing Isa will be well cared for and happy when I am gone.
My family is new to the area so I was very relieved to find Patricia to take care of our Basset Hound while we were away for two weeks. With an easily accessible yard for the dogs with shady and sunny spots, it was perfect for Tuffy to lay out. Patricia is also great with dogs so I felt completely at ease leaving Tuffy in her care. Will absolutely use Patricia again next vacation we take.

Patricia and her home are absolutely lovely and a dog haven! Plenty of toys and attention for everyone. My dogs were so happy to stay with her. They couldn't wait to get out of the car when we would drive up to her house! I've used Patricia for both daycare and overnight. I highly recommend her services!

Isa had a wonderful time at Patricia's and I look forward to taking her there again. Isa looks forward to being there. Patricia is a great dog sitter.
Isa has a wonderful time at Patricia's house. She has been there two or three times and is excited when we get out of the car. Patricia is a great dog care person! She knows a lot about dogs and takes very good care of her visitors.
We went for a quick trip to Vegas and Patricia was great. She sent us an email with some pictures of London running around and her house is well suited for animals. We will use her again.
As always, Patricia and her husband were excellent with my dog, Leia.

Patricia also noticed a limp in Leia that I had not noticed before - she really cares for animals and pays close attention.

Leia is very happy there - she loves the yard and loves playing with Patricia's dogs. She actually played with them, and she is not normally very social around other dogs.

I will continue bringing Leia to Patricia's house!

Patricia does a great job. She has a couple of lovely dogs and everybody makes my dog feel at home.
Patricia is a very caring individual and I feel as if she went the extra mile with Leia.

Leia had been going through a lot of change and was experiencing some separation anxiety, but by the end of her stay with Patricia she was quite comfortable.

I really appreciate the care and love she showed to my dog and would highly recommend her services.

Once again, Patricia took AMAZING care of our Ruby! We are thrilled to have found such a loving dog sitter. Ruby just loves going there and loves playing with Lily & Winston. Patricia is so sweet to send photos (and sometimes videos!) almost every day while we are away. Looking forward to sending our dog there again!

Patricia was AMAZING! She sent us lots of updates and photos while we were away for 10 days. She truly seemed to love our dog as her own. Our dog had so much fun playing with her two sweet dogs. We can't wait to see her again soon! Patricia is highly recommended!

This was the first time we had ever left my Grandmother's dog with a dog sitter and we are very pleased with Patricia's services! My Grandma has been in and out of the hospital several times within the last 2 years, so when she's gone, her dog Brutus has severe separation anxiety, but when he stays with Patricia, she keeps him active and distracted so he's not as upset. She's sweet, honest, trustworthy, and a huge dog lover with 2 pups of her own. Not to mention she's only a few blocks away from home! I'm so glad we found her through Dog Vacay and we will definitely go to her in the future (again this weekend!) and recommend her to friends :)

This is the first time we have left our dog Flower with anyone other than relatives, but the experience was so nice we would definitely do it again. Patricia, her Husband, and 2 dogs welcomed Flower into their home. Patricia listened while I gave her the rundown on Flower's normal routine and preferences and she asked the right questions to fill in any thing I may have left out. They gave us plenty of updates while we were on our trip. They took such great care of Flower that when we picked her up we she was calm and relaxed and we could see she had a great time without us. Even if you are outside of the Sunland/Tujunga area it would be worth the few extra minutes to know your dog(s) was in such excellent hands.
