About Daphne

After owning 2 dogs of my own, I've been able to learn to adapt quickly to the different needs and personalities of the dogs I encounter. I take great pride in my ability to bond with pets of all temperaments. As an active person, I love to entertain pups with hours of fetch and belly rubs. My apartment is close to Mission Creek dog park. I live in a pet friendly community so there's an outdoor area to play. My apartment also has a dog grooming area for bathing (pictured). Our space is a 2:2 b/b with a converted living area (pictured) but there's still ample space for a dog to play freely. I would love to meet and care for your beloved dog or cat!

Daphne was nothing but exceptional. I was in situation where I needed someone reliable to watch my sweet 16 year old cat, and Daphne did just that. I tried finding cat sitters online with no luck, but thought I would reach out to a sitter on Dog Vacay. Daphne stepped up the place and accepted cat with open arm.s With my cat being much older, she made it a point to keep updated on his status and let me know how he was feeling daily. She was the best pet sitter and I highly recommend her!

Daphne really amazed us with the quality of her care -- from first contact to final transition -- she exceeded our expectations. Daphne was flexible in accommodating our need for an in-home sitter and worked with us on our dates, despite the holidays. She sent many photos throughout her stay and gave the dogs a lot of exercise, even figuring out inside activities during the rain. Our dogs and house were in great shape when we returned and we felt at ease throughout our trip thanks to her steady flow of communication. We'd definitely recommend Daphne!

Daphne is fantastic, and she's great with big dog and my dog loves her. During my trip she updates with me with pictures/videos almost daily.
I can't thank Daphne enough for taking care of my dog Jamie on such short notice. She was very accommodating to my schedule. Jamie seemed like he had a great time with her. I'd definitely recommend her. Thanks so much!
Daphne was amazing. She was so great with Toby and sent photos every day keeping me updated. He loved staying with her and seemed very happy. I would highly recommend her and hope to use her again!
Daphne was an amazing sitter for Bij and we'll definitely plan on bringing him back next time we're in need. Bij was a little anxious the first night he was there and had a little accident. Rather than get upset, Daphne asked us if there was anything we usually do to make him more comfortable as she only had his best interests in mind and wanted him to be happy. She really is incredible. She also sent us daily photos of their adventures and took him on plenty of walks. Can't thank her enough for looking after him!

Daphne was fantastic, she was flexible, kind, and a great host for our pup! She was willing to go above and beyond (she even fed our cats for us) and it was obvious that she was truly caring and attentive to our Pooch. We will certainly use Daphne again and would recommend that you do too!

Daphne is amazing! My hubby and I attended a wedding in Hawaii for 4 days and we are very careful with who we choose to take care of our kid, Winston (our goldendoodle). Daphne was on top of it with keeping us updated throughout the day. The pic she sent of Winston were great. He even smiled in one! Daphne's apartment was very accommodating for our dog. It is equipped with a small dog area to potty. One thing I feel is noteworthy is Daphne's flexibility. Because we had an early flight out of Oakland, she had no issues allowing us to drop off early morning and picking up late at night when we returned. Amazing! Did I mention that as soon as Winston met her, he basically gave her a hug!? We could usually tell how Winstons stay was after we leave him with a sitter by how he behaves once we get him back. He was great when we got him back. No issues whatsoever. No whimpering or sadness. Probably because of all the love and belly scratches he received. She even texted to check up on him even after his stay. Daphne is an amazing host and I would recommend her to anyone. We will definitely be coming back :)

Disclaimer: It's hard for me to trust anyone with my dog (even close friends) so I was a bit apprehensive about using this service to begin with, but Daphne eased my nerves once I got to spend some time with her.

I needed someone to watch Ralphie over night last minute due to my friend having to cancel on me just hours prior to my departure. Daphne was super accommodating for me being on such a short time constraint and was able to respond to me almost immediately.

Within an hour, Daphne was able to give me a grand tour of her place (she also has such a nice area right downstairs for Ralphie to play!)

If you ever get a chance to get Daphne to host, you'll quickly realize that she's not just great with pets, but fantastic with people too. Her attention to detail is second to none and I could tell that Ralphie had such a wonderful time with her. :)

I'm sure there are tons of other great hosts out there but I'm happy that I don't need to look further for such a dependable, respectable and affectionate host for my dog.

Kind regards,
Sara

We were driving about 9 hours from Bandon, Oregon to San Francisco on the first day of an 11 day road trip across the country and after getting a late start on the day we needed someone to watch Jesse and Dexter last minute because the doggie daycares were all closed by the time we arrived. About 2 hours out from the city I sent a message to Daphne and she called me within 5 minutes to tell me that she would be glad to watch the dogs for the night. We arrived and she brought us in to see her awesome little doggie park in the back of her building and then to see her apartment and meet her roommates. It's a very nice place with very nice people and our dogs were extremely happy with her. I would gladly take them back to Daphne any time and suggest you do too!
