About Emily

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Send your dog on vacation in the Mission - steps from Bernal Hill hiking!

I live in Southeast Mission with my six year old dog Lola. We live in a ground-foor house with access to a small fenced-in yard in both the front and back of the house, but even better than that, we live very close to Bernal Hill, so our daily walks almost always involve a walk up the hill to see the views of the city and get some exercise (see pictures)!

I've had dogs all my life, and was a professional dog walker for three years, but for the past six years I've lived with Lola, a friendly and, as you can see from the photos, cuddly mix.

Should you choose to stay with Lola and me, you'd get at least two 30-minute walks each day, plenty of treats, and lots of attention. I'm home most of the time on the weekends, and during the week I work from home half the week, and go into the office half the week, though I'm flexible with this and can work from home as needed - please just ask!

Any breed and size dog is welcome, but please no dogs that display aggressive behavior or that aren't housebroken. All pups must be flea and tick free and must be up-to-date on all vaccinations.

We do live with a cat, so your pup should be ok with cats too!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions - I look forward to hearing from you!

Emily was my first experience with DogVacay, and I couldn't be more pleased. From the initial meeting with Emily and my two senior small dogs, through my return, everything was terrific. Emily kept me posted while I was gone with pictures and texts, and my little guys were relaxed and happy when I arrived home. Emily is responsive, responsible, loving with the dogs - I wouldn't ask for anything more. I hope Emily will be available the next time I am traveling! I highly, highly recommend her.
Emily was totally flexible with my changing plans and super-easy to work with. Lola and Paco got off to a bit of a "rocky" start - but it ended up more than successful and I would definitely use Lola again!
I could not have been more fortunate to have found Emily. This was the first time I left my girl with someone in a new city and without her sister who recently passed. My Lola got to hang out with Emily's Lola, and I soon found out my girl didn't need me at all she felt so at home. Emily humored my anxiety and keep in great touch with photos and texts, as I asked for a lot, and then when I picked her up got a report as to how she did. It's great to know she has some fenced in outdoor space for the dogs as well as is close to many parks and walkable areas to take her, so I will absolutely look to bring Lola back again.
Emily was great; Gizmo clearly appreciated the extra TLC while we were out of town.
Nico had a great time with Emily and Lola. We'll definitely come back for another visit.
Everything went as planned. Katie didn't seem have anything but a good time. Thanks
Emily was a great host to Teddy and sent photos throughout his stay. Her dog Lola seemed to get along great with Teddy. When I picked him up he seemed like his happy and healthy self. I would definitely use Emily again.
Emily was a fantastic host! When a family emergency disrupted her holiday plans, she found a place for my dog to stay for a few days while she dealt with things. She arranged everything and was incredibly thoughtful about taking care of Moose. He came home very happy and tired. He will be staying with Emily again in the future.
Emily was a great host and kept me updated throughout Teddy's stay. When I picked him up, Teddy seemed happy and well taken care of. I would definitely take Teddy there again.
Gulliver had a wonderful weekend with Emily & Lola! They actually went on a "Dog Vacay" to the beach and I think his weekend away was the highlight of his month.

Emily kept me updated each day and always sent cute pictures to go along with her updates. This was my first experience with DogVacay and I must say I'll be a returning customer.

Thank you Emily!
Emily was a wonderful host! She was very prompt at responding to my request and was flexible with the times I picked and dropped off my dog. I enjoyed my doggie meet and greet with her and her sweet dog, Lola. I doubt there is anyone who wouldn't get along with her or Lola. As for the actual petsitting, she sent me lots of pictures of her adventures with my dog and really seemed to spend a lot of quality time with him. She made sure to walk him a lot and took him to various parts of the city to check out new smells. I will definitely be bringing my dog back to Emily if I need another petsitter!
Emily was a great host. From arranging the meet and greet to picking up at the end of stay, she communicated quickly and sent lots of updates. It was clear our Duke had an amazing time with her and Lola.
