About Emi

Dog Heaven home with a gated Big Backyard in Culver City!

I LOVE dogs...I grew up with dogs my entire life and find nothing more fulfilling than spending time with them. I take great care of all my client's pups as if they were my own family. I've cared for many breeds of dogs, temperaments and ages, and I love them all!

I have a big gated backyard where your pup can run around all day long so your pup will guarantee have a blast! Dog Heaven!

I also have a very friendly Great Pyrenees at home. He is very gentle and sweet and gets along with dogs of all sizes so he can be your pup's playmate!

I offer dog boarding, daycare and walking service.
Overnight rate: $40/night (holiday rate @$50)
Daycare rate: $35/day (holiday rate @$45)
Walking rate: $15/half hour, $27/hour

Please feel free to check out my facebook page and like it! I upload photos daily so you can always see how your pup is doing while you are away. :)

We look forward to having your dog over.

Emi is very responsive and sweet! My dog is very shy to strangers, but Emi is so patient to calm her down and familiarize her. Great service and will be back!
Emi was very accommodating to my last minute booking. She communicated with me that she wasn't going to be there the whole time up front which was fine since she had an awesome yard for Bowser to play in.
I am so pleased that we found Emi. It is comforting to know my pup is in a safe & happy place with Emi & Kuma. Thank you so much.
Emi was great, our Rocco loved his time with her and the other dogs, we'll definitely be back!
Great! Emi was very kind & patient with my little 3 lb. puppy. She sent picture updates daily and was very responsive! I would recommend Emi for big pooches or teeny tiny ones too!
Emi was terrific! Very quick to respond to messages, flexible with pickup/dropoff times and great photo updates. Stanley got along very well with her regulars. I wouldn't hesitate to book with Emi again.
Emi was great! Bear seemed like he was super happy! Highly recommend
Emi is very sweet and sends great pictures, but there are a lot of dogs there, making supervision more difficult. Zoe had a great stay there in the past, but she was bit by another dog while there (not that it couldn't have happened anywhere, but I think it is less likely when there are fewer dogs who don't know each other...)
Emi and Kuma are the best! We saw the daycare promotion and wanted to try out some one new in that would be close by. Emi happens to be just down the street! What a blessing it is. We first did an introduction, which turned out great! We only met Kuma, and he's such a sweet heart fur and all!

We had daycare scheduled for a Tuesday, and was so happy to get photo updates on my phone and her awesome Facebook page. Roxi, a regular, and Yoshi seemed to really hit it off. I will definitely make this a regular thing for Yoshi.
Simply wonderful - and I'm sure Ptaxi! would bark her agreement. A comfy home, large enclosed yard complete with the occasional squirrel, and warm, constant attention may be expected but are nonetheless greatly appreciated. Where Emi excelled was in providing extras: helping with transportation to match my schedule, and having a back up for herself (just in case), someone from DogVacay I know and much like. Makes taking more vacations feasible. We need never look further.
Emi was a great daycare host. We dropped off both my youthful Golden Retriever and my sister's elderly Pomeranian yesterday for daycare. Emi was very accommodating to both of them and they look like they had a fun day. Emi has a good size backyard for the dogs to run around and play all day. Thank you so much for watching Bowser and Pookie!
Emi was such a great host, my dog didn't want to come home! When I went to pick my dog up, she ran to Emi and jumped up and was hugging her leg. My dog must have had a great time there so I'll be taking her back.
Emi is great! Getting in touch with her was a breeze and she does a great job of keeping us updated. My pup is a scaredy cat and has a little bit of anxiety but we checked the pictures Emi uploads daily and he looked like he was having a great time. He even looked like he played with the other dogs! We are definitely coming back to her in the future.
Emi was great! She was able to help us with little notice and our puppy was happy and very tired after a day with her and the other pups!
Since moving to LA I have had my dog in one of the big doggie day care places and she has really suffered from separation anxiety and been stressed. I decided to go down the 'at home route' as this is what she was used to in the UK and I am SO pleased I did. Emi is lovely as is her dog Kuma and the other dogs she looks after, its' never too crowded and they get lots of human contact and interaction which Roxie loves more than anything.

When I get Roxie home she is happy and exhausted at the same time (perfect after a long day at work for me)
Zoe had a blast and Emi was great! The indoor/outdoor living area was perfect for Zoe who loves to run around!
Emi was very responsive and kind. She immediately scheduled a meet and greet, and we were pleasantly surprised as to how welcoming her house felt. She has a dedicated backyard for her dogs which made me feel more comfortable for my pet.

Ever worry about how your dog is doing during the day? Don't worry, she sends you picture updates throughout the day as well!

Highly recommended.
My husband and I have never used Dog Vacay before and were hesitant to trust a stranger. We interviewed a few potentials sitters and decided to book with Emi. She is kind, communicative and flexible! She has an adorable house with a beautiful, big and super friendly dog of her own.

During the day our dogs were with Emi, she sent pictures and texts to keep us updated. Our dogs can be a little timid, but they warmed right up to her and had a great time.

We will definitely use Emi again in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable sitter!
Zoe had a blast - and I loved all the picture updates!
Emi is an extremely caring and responsible dog sitter. Her dog, Kuma, is very mellow and well-mannered. I left my special needs Shepherd with Emi for almost 2 weeks over the holidays. She kept me up-to-date with my girl's status and activities via text and Facebook (has her own page for us parents to see our kids while we're away). I highly recommend her services. You will have peace of mind while away from your four-legged child!
Kirra had a great stay with Emi! We loved the daily photo updates that showed her having a blast with all of the dogs. Highly recommend her. We'll be back :-)
Emi was so great with Izzy. She posted daily pictures of her which helped with any separation anxiety I was experiencing. Emi even found a local park and took our pup out with her own dog to play. We definitely will be visiting this park in the near future. Izzy obviously had a great time because she barely wanted to get in the car to come home with me! I highly recommend Emi for your dog sitting needs. She is responsive to emails/texts and clearly loves dogs. Thanks Emi!
Emi is just wonderful dog care taker. I can say nothing but the best about having our dog at her care. We met and greeted first to get acquainted and see how our dog will fit for Emi's resident dog Cuma. Our dog is older and not quite social with other dogs so my wife and I were a little worried how she will handle it as she is quite attached to us. Emi held on all her promises to update us on our dog both on my phone and on her Facebook web site. We had realized already after the first day that everything is fine with our dog and could enjoy our vacation with peace in our minds that our dog is all right.
Emi is awesome!! She was always super responsive and uploaded pictures of Loki every single day. We were always looking forward to new pictures of Loki and Kuma playing. Would 100% recommend booking with Emi!
Emi took great care of our dog Boo Boo, and she even sent photo updates through the dogvacay website to let me know that Boo Boo was okay, happy and having a great time!

Emi is really easy to work with, and professional. Her backyard is like a little private dog oasis, and her dog Kuma is well behaved. She is a true dog lover, and you can rest assured that your dog will have a wonderful time staying with her. Not only will she make sure your dog is safe, but also she will spoil your dog with lots of toys, treats, time, and love. She and her dog are great!! I highly recommend Emi, and we plan on booking another dog vacay with her soon, possibly tomorrow. ☺
Emi quickly responded and proposed a meet n greet. my dog hit it off with hers and they romped and played in the backyard. when i picked Sully up the next evening he was exhausted. I also received numerous pictures from just one 24hr span. Great stuff!
This was our first time using DogVacay and the first time leaving our dog at someone else's home. It could not have been a better experience. Emi was an amazing host and our pup absolutely loved her and her sweet dog Kuma. She has a genuine sweet way with animals…She took such amazing care of our pup and sent us regular photo and video updates…seeing our dog so happy and having a blast put our mind at ease while we were away, knowing that our pup was in good loving hands. She also has a big gated beautiful backyard that is just perfect for our pup to run around all day long! 5 stars is not enough to rate Emi. I am thrilled to have found such an amazing host and we will definitely go back to her again! I would highly recommend Emi to anybody!
