About Siobhan

Hello! I am 32 years old, originally from Palo Alto, and a total dog lover. Given the nature of my freelance work (teaching and acting) I don't always have time to keep one of my own. But I would love to visit with yours! I have cared for dogs of a variety of ages and sizes.

One of the reasons I love to watch dogs is that it is a great excuse to get outside! I am very happy to take dogs of field trips to nearby parks. However, if your dog has mobility issues, I am just as happy to relax with them inside.

I should also note that while I have hosted many happy pups at my place, I prefer dog sitting to dog boarding, since most dogs are more relaxed and comfortable in their own environment.

When not working I enjoy practicing Bikram yoga, cooking new recipes, and attempting to garden. :)

We trusted Siobhan to stay in our home with our 90 lb. Aussie mix and quirky cat for 10 ten days. She was great! She took our dog on an outing, sent photos, sent texts and responded very quickly when we reached out to her. When we arrived home both pets seemed to be in good shape and well cared for. We would definitely hire Siobhan again.

Siobhan was able to help when I was in a bit of a time crunch! It was easy and efficient to communicate with her. She has a sweet, confidence-inspiring demeanor. Thanks for taking some of the stress out of my day!
Siobhan was wonderful! She was responsive and engaging, and did a great job with our older pup. Text updates throughout the weekend were so helpful, and our house was just as we left it. So happy to find someone like Siobhan!
Siobhan was a great sitter! Thoroughly pleased with how everything went, despite being nervous as a first timer to this concept. Siobhan sent notes and pictures to let me know how Scarlett was doing - a great comfort! Will definitely use Siobhan again and would highly recommend.

Siobhan took excellent care of our dog, Snoop, while we were away and he needed medication and special care. She was also very helpful and patient in making sure we were comfortable with everything before our first DogVacay experience.
Siobhan has stayed with Chloe before and it has been a really good fit. I get little notes from Siobhan and lots of reassurance that all is well! Will definitely like to have Siobhan watch Chloe in the future.
Siobhan took good care of our dogs and our home for two separate trips. Kept in touch with us and sent us pictures of Paco and BoBo. Definitely recommend her for others looking for sitters.
Really appreciated the notes and photos from Siobhan. Made me feel that my Chloe was in good hands and was doing well. Would definitely recommend her and hope that she will be able to watch Chloe in the future.
Siobhan is excellent! She's kind and thorough, and I felt completely comfortable having her watch my pups!
I felt very comfortable leaving Chloe with Siobhan. She is very caring and my dog was well looked after. It was a great experience for both of us. I would definitely recommend Siobhan to others.
my dog's vacay was so good! siobhan kept in touch with my bf and me the whole time we were gone and took stevie on many adventures.
Siobhan sat and cared for our dogs in our home for our second trip away.
We like Siobhan very much. She is very kind and loving. I think even her voice is quite sweet and the dogs respond to as well. This was our first experience with both Siobhan and DogVacay. We will use Siobhan for our next trip. She gave us reassurance that the dogs were doing well and funny that she discovered little quirks about each one. I feel confident with Siobhan and hope that we have a lasting relationship with her.

Siobhan was terrific! She sent me some great photos and I know they had fun. She is very kind and I can tell Ginger had a wonderful time!
Siobhan was such a great dog sitter for our pup Mackey! She was so warm and friendly and I knew she would be a great match from the start. Highly recommended!
Siobhan was wonderful in every way! Great communication from start to finish, convenient pick-up and drop-off service, and most importantly, a good caregiver. Boo and I are very attached to each other, and Siobhan made us both comfortable--and Boo happy--while I was out of town.

Our black lab Sampson had a wonderful weekend with Siobhan! When we first met Siobhan a few days before Sampson's visit I knew that he would be in good hands. She has great experience taking care of a variety of different dog breeds. I appreciated that she asked thoughtful questions about Sampson's preferences and habits.

Sampson stayed with her for three nights and she took great care of him - he came back tired and happy!

This was our first time on DogVayCay and we had a wonderful experience. We'll definitely use Siobhan for dogsitting again and highly recommend her to other dog owners.

Siobhan was wonderful! She took the time to meet with us before Tuyo's stay and she treated him with kindness and runs in the neighborhood. He came back happy and healthy.
Siobhan was great. She watched my dog for a whole week and he seemed happy when I got home. She picked up and dropped him off, and also sent photos while I was away. Highly recommend!
No problem finding her place and dropping the dogs off. She sent us pictures of our dogs tuckered out after she took them to the park. Super friendly and helpful, would highly recommend!
