About Anne & Tyler

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We love the two dogs we have and know how difficult it is to find a great place for them to stay while you enjoy your time off or while you travel for work.


We do our best to make each dog feel like they are part of the pack here. Lots of individual attention, trips to the park and play time. We live just minutes away from Point Isabel and Cesar Chavez parks, as well as the NUMEROUS smaller dog parks around here. We really are smack dab in the center of dog heaven. We also have 24 hour access to the outside, fresh water, and the best lounging pillows and couches you can find!

Do you have a dog with special needs? We can almost always accommodate them. Medications, special diet or even hospice care, no worries. Anne is a licensed Veterinary Technician (retired) with over 20 years in the field. *Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate unaltered dogs.*

We also try to insure the safety of all of our guests. All dogs are fitted with a Tagg GPS system on their collars while staying here. It’s a great device that will send text updates on location every 90 seconds until the wearer is found. Nifty, right? Our house is also surrounded by 8 foot fencing all the way around.

We offer other services as well. Things like, daycare and limo (ok, maybe not a LIMO, more like an Element :P), service to the vet, groomer or even the dog park. We can even do overnight stays in your home if you think your best friend would prefer that. All services are offered for a fee. Please ask about our rates.

As for us, Anne is a retired Vet Tech. Tyler, a canine CPR/ First Aid instructor. Anne also works part time as an event artist. Tyler is an inspector for the BAAQMD (air district), so they do keep very busy. When we have guests, we always try to make sure someone is home with them all the time (with some exceptions).

Overall, we feel that our home and lifestyle is prefect for having new friends stay over. We would love for you to schedule a Meet and Greet and get to know us.

Anne took care of our dogs while we were on vacation for 2 weeks this spring. She did an absolutely wonderful job. She is as loving and caring as if they were her own. She sent us pictures and updates so that we able to have a lovely time knowing our pups were in her conscientious and responsible hands. Very highly recommend!!
Baya, our dog, has been at Anne's place several time already and up to 3 weeks. She is so happy each time that she runs into the house. So you can be confident that your dog will be happy with Anne.
Great stay. They are well set up for hosting dogs and clearly knowledgeable. I didn't worry about my fur baby at all the whole weekend.
Very nice people. Tyson loved his stay. Will totally come back again!
Anne is great with dogs. She seems very experienced. She took good care of the house as well.
100% excellence!
I am probably what most people would consider a "crazy" dog parent- my world revolves around our precious baby girl. We are new to the area and needed someone to watch her for two nights- back at home when we would take a trip she would always stay with trusted friends in our own home. I was a wreck thinking about taking Sephy to a boarder or a "dog hotel"- then I found Anne and Tyler. I was immediately put at ease when I met Anne- the space that her and Tyler have created for themselves, their dogs and their doggie guests just can't be beat! Anne and I spoke at length prior to Sephy's vacay, she took the time to really listen and understand my concerns about Sephy being a pretty shy and particular dog, and had very effective strategies and suggestions for easing the stress of the situation on Sephy. Anne was so great with sending us updates and photos during Seph's time with them, it made me feel completely at ease, and Sephy felt pretty at ease too~ she had a great time! I would happily entrust Anne and Tyler with our pooch any time- I'm very grateful to have a new go-to resource for our precious baby girl! Thank you so very much!
Great experience.
As always, Anne and Tyler take amazing care of our little guy! He's so excited to go to their place, he doesn't even care that we leave!
Anne was able to watch my senior dog last minute and took great care of him. Will definitely be using her again!
Anne and Tyler are our new favorite people! Paddington has stayed with them for a few short stays, and one long, 3 week stay while we traveled abroad. We never worried about him, even when we were out of internet range, which made our vacation that much better. Anne always gives us great details about how he's doing, especially within the larger pack. Their house is a dog paradise, and I know Paddington loves being able to go outside and run around. The only thing that makes them even better, is they live in our neighborhood! Thanks for all the peace of mind Anne & Tyler!
As always, Anne and Tyler were fantastic taking care of my nervous old greyhound. She's been needing a little more care and attention in feeding these days, and Anne was able to set up a little "safe space" for Petal to eat without worrying about other dogs coming nearby. So accommodating! Thanks, you two!
Anne and Tyler are always incredible hosts.
Anne was amazing, calmed all my fears when I first met her, and kept me updated daily about my doggie. He is an elderly dog so he needs a bit of special attention and she went above and beyond giving it to him. My vacation was that much better because I did not have the usual anxiety and stress I get from leaving my dog with someone especially with all of his "old man" needs. I will definitely be a repeat customer!
Anne and Tyler were great! I have a retired racing greyhound who--I suppose from her livestock-esque upbringing--is a little peculiar. Anne was very accommodating and understanding to all of Petal's little quirks. Petal seemed very happy and well cared for at Anne and Tyler's place. Thanks so much!
Bagels had an incredible time! Anne & Tyler are amazing hosts :-)
My beagle had an amazing time with Anne & Tyler! They were super attentive, provided regular updates, and are all around amazing hosts.
I am so nervous when it comes to leaving my dog. Thank goodness for Anne and Tyler because they were the perfect hosts for Abbey's "home away from home"

Abbey is a super sensitive dog who really likes her routine to feel comfortable so I knew she was going to feel stressed when I had to leave her for 10 days.

I loved the fact that Anne and Tyler had dogs of their own that Abbey could bond with AND that Anne used the TAGG GPS tracker system with Abbey when they were out and about.

Anne spent a lot of time with me on our first visit to help me get comfortable and their home was the perfect hang out spot for all things Canine (they even have Hamster TV!!!)

I came back from my vacation rested and relaxed and when I picked up Abbey, SHE was rested and relaxed! I'm so happy to have found Anne & Tyler because now I have a safe and fun place for Abbey to hang out while I'm out of town. Yaaaay!
Anne and Tyler are amazing and treat Ollie like he's a member of their family. It's like he has a second home.
This was Gigi's second extended stay (1 week) at Tyler and Anne's place. She had an exceptional time with their dogs and other guest-pups. She came home in great spirits, looking healthy, and well tired out. What more could you ask for? Thanks very much, Tyler and Anne!
This was our dog's second reservation with Anne and Tyler and they were great. I feel good about leaving our special girl with them. I will definitely reserve again!
Anne & Tyler are fantastic hosts. They love my slightly special cocker spaniel Ollie. He had some stomach issues this week and they watched him every day and gave me the updates on his condition. They take care of him like he's one of their own.... That's the best thing you can say.
Anne and Tyler were superb hosts for Gigi. They administered meds, kept in touch with us during our long trip, and kept the pup happy throughout. Highly recommended.
We adopted our Beagle nearly 6 years ago and in terms of being a dog, he's quite spoiled in the sense that he's not crated, he sleeps on the sofa, he loves his human time and really loves lounging around. This was only the second time we've left The Beagle with a dog sitter, the first time didn't go very well and Anne did an amazing job listening and easing my Husband's anxieties about leaving his BFF, The Beagle as well as eased my anxieties about him being loved as much as he is at home.

The Beagle came home exhausted. He wasn't anxious, he wasn't misbehaving, he wasn't starved and more importantly, he didn't shun us. He clearly got the attention he needed from humans as well as the socialization that was much needed with other dogs.

Anne was so easy to communicate with, she just adores dogs, and we really couldn't have picked anyone better to take care of our Beloved Beagle.

Thank you so much!
Our two dogs found a great home away from home at Anne and Tyler's. Our lab mix made himself comfortable right away; he played with Anne and Tyler's own dogs, and luxuriated in the canine-friendly accommodations.
Our mastiff found it difficult to be in a new environment at first. Anne was both patient and sensitive. She kept me informed, and consulted with me about how to make our nervous dog more comfortable. She won our timid giant over!
We are grateful to both Anne and Tyler for their flexibility and friendliness, and heartily recommend their canine oasis to others.
My two guys Riley and Willie enjoyed their vacation with Anne. Her background as a vet tech was extremely important because Riley was recently diagnosed as diabetic and required insulin shots and feeding on a strict schedule. Anne handled it like a pro and even took Riley for his weekly vet check. The look on their faces when I picked them up told me they had a great time. Her home and yard is pet friendly - I'm keeping her on speed dial.

Anne seems like someone who truly cares about dogs, which was very reassuring to me. There were lots of toys and beds around the house and the resident dogs were very cute and spunky. I wouldn't hesitate to book another Vacay with Anne.
Its so great to have Anne. This was a very early booking time. She came to my house on time!! Anne is perfect for my boys. Anne really knows dogs. Love having her watch my boys!! Can not say enough good things ! !
Anne was very caring and friendly with the dogs and even cleaned a vomit and poops at home when we told her she didn't need to. One of our dogs was a bit sick and she even cooked white rice at her place and brought it for them. She is truly a dog angel and would book again. She was also communicative with daily SMS with feedback and pics.
During our meet & greet we knew Anne was going to be great with our boys! Having moved to the East Bay our North Bay Dogvacay gal wasn't going to be an option. Having a new sitter can be a little scary. Anne is wonderful! She really knows dogs and their behavior. We felt our boys were in great hands with Anne! Anne is also awesome to converse with. Smart, funny and cool!! We had our first "date night" in ages. I was able to relax and enjoy myself knowing Hector & Pedro were safe and being well cared for. 5 paws!! Awesome.
Our dog Flit spent two weeks with Anne and Tyler while we were on vacation. It was a wonderful experience. Anne is knowledgeable about doggy behaviour and care and did a great job of integrating Flit in to their household, including with visiting daycare dogs. She is kind and goes the extra mile to make sure your dog is happy and well cared for, thinking about positive ways to improve their well being. She kept me informed of Flit's progress. Flit was obviously at ease when we went to pick her up and in no hurry to leave. She looked healthier than when we left her and showed none of the nervousness we have seen from her in the past in boarding situations. Since we were pretty much "off the grid" in the second half of our vacation I was looking for a safe place for Flit primarily and was initially impressed by Anne's safe enclosed yard with 24/7 doggy door access and the GPS monitoring collars the dogs wear and Anne and Tyler's vet and CPR experience. However we got so much more from this quality doggy care experience that we are planning to keep up Flit's contact with them with occasional daycare. Also Flit formed bonds with Anne's dogs.
With grateful thanks. The Tai family.
Anne was great with Sahara. She gave us updates and when we returned she let us know how the weekend was. Sahara was happy and that makes us happy!
Anne and Tyler did a fabulous job hosting our young dog -- for two weeks, no less! To make things more awesome, Gigi required the application of two different prescriptions, a total of 3 times daily. They managed that with ease, along with exercising Gigi, socializing her with their own dogs and another guest dog, and giving her lots of love. Oh, and they updated us by text/photo during our trip, which was a nice touch. We highly recommend Anne and Tyler and are happy to provide a more detailed reference upon request.
Anne was wonderful. We went on vacation for a week and Anne came by the house twice a day to take care of our two dogs. She was attentive, always communicated with us and was able to problem solve while we were away. For example, one of our dogs started chewing the window sill, Anne called us sent pictures and we were able to avoid any further damage. We will definitely go with Anne again!
Anne and Tyler were very nice and friendly and took great care of my doggie. He chilled with their cocker spaniel boys and enjoyed walks and belly-rubs. Thanks again!
Another awesome stay with Anne and Tyler! I think my dog was actually a little disappointed to go home. Anne and Tyler's wonderful home is quickly becoming a second home to Jupiter who is usually very slow to warm up to new people.
Ann and Tyler have turned out to be the perfect dog sitters for our Ziggy and have been a terrific solution for our needs. Their home set up is extremely pet centered and friendly and they are clearly very knowledgable about dog needs. Ziggy took to them very quickly and made himself right at home. As oppose to other sitters we have researched and checked out, Ann makes this her job for the most part, so for much of the day attention is paid to the dog and she almost always gets a fair amount of exercise in for them.
Ann is warm and friendly and clearly enjoys what she is doing. She has two dogs of her own who have fit right in with Ziggy.
This was a really good choice for us.
Anne and Tyler are truly wonderful. They took excellent care of my shy, nervous dog for a week while I was out of town. Their calm, easy-going demeanor put my dog (and me) at complete ease. I can't recommend them more highly. My pup came home healthy, happy, and relaxed. They even sent me photo/text updates during the week! I wouldn't hesitate to use them again and am so happy I found them.
Anne has been absolutely fabulous in caring for my super shy German Shepard! Her place is perfectly set up for all the comforts a dog could ask for; thank you Anne! -Christine
Anne was incredible with my dog Pepper! Pepper is an old lady who is very set in her ways and is not thrilled about being away from home. Pepper was a handful for Anne and she went above and beyond to make my girl safe and comfortable. I will definitely use Anne again when I need to be away from Pepper. She's amazing!
We needed a last minute sitter for our 9 month English Mastiff (130 lbs). We found this site and were very pleased with Anne's prompt responses. She was able to watch our puppy Jumbo Joe and we also had an initial meet & greet which was great. This put our minds at ease as this was the 1st time we would be away from him. Anne & Tyler's home is very dog friendly. Anne was great keeping us updated by sending daily text messages and also sending pictures. I couldn't be happier with the care Jumbo Joe received and would definitely use Anne in the future.
Anne and Tyler were awesome. Leo our 5 month old rambunctious German Shepherd took a little bit of calming down - but he was then mellow for the rest of the day, I was told. This was for a day care - they were great and I will certainly do this many more times.
Lounge Your Hounds was incredibly awesome! Our pitty Harriet absolutely enjoyed her time there and seemed to not want to leave. They have a very dog friendly house with beds and pillows in just about every nook and cranny of the house, a box full of toys and fenced in backyard is ideal for running and rough housing. We were extremely happy to find them and we will be making another reservation soon. A+
I got the sense very quickly than Anne would be a great sitter for my shy shepherd Lucy. In a meet and greet and a test visit, it was clear she knew how to relate to my dog, watch out for her and put her at ease. Lucy was also quite comfortable in Anne and Tyler's home. It was a perfect setup: she had some canine company and room to wander about and keep an eye on things. Anne was both knowledgable about dog personalities, behavior and care (I felt reassured by her veterinary experience) and wonderfully responsive. She cheerfully accommodated my somewhat uncertain travel plans with relatively short notice. She really helped in a pinch and I'll certainly turn to her when Lu needs another vacation...
Anne and Tyler are very friendly and so are their dogs! Gandhi came home tired from lots of playing and walks! I particularly live it when he is treated like a member of the family and that was very true this time! They were flexible about the time on both ends which is a big plus for me! I'd recommend this sweet family and their great, very safe fenced yard anytime!
I was really concerned leaving my dog with just anybody. my husky gets into all kinds of trouble when left alone so i wanted to make sure i found a sitter that was aware of this breed. I contacted Anne and she responded fast and agreed to do a meet and greet, so that our dogs can meet. Anne watched my dog on a Saturday 2pm-10pm. I liked the fact that she was flexible with the hours of pick up. I have no complaints and will definately let Anne take care of Argos again.
