About Nathan

Hi! We're Nadia and Nathan and we would love to care for your pooch! We have the perfect pet-friendly home in Hayes Valley with a shared backyard, and lots of parks (Duboce, Alamo Square, Dolores, Panhandle) nearby!

We both work from home, so there will always be at least one person keeping your dog company. We don't have any other pets, so yours will get all our love and attention!

We both grew up with multiple dogs, and have loads of experience caring for dogs of every age, breed, and demeanor. (We have 36 years combined experience -- that's 252 in dog years!)

As a special thank you, we'll make you an animated GIF of your pooch while they're staying with us!

If your dog has a tendency to have accidents, chew, howl, or bark excessively, we are not the right host for you.

Nathan and Nadia are awesome!! They took good care of my 16 y/o Jack Russell. When I picked her up she was curled up in her comfy little bed, not a care in the world.

When I was first booking the reservation they were very prompt to respond and completely up front with all the details. They made nice and easy for a first time user of the dogvacay service and I'm definitely going to book them again!
Pawsome! Nathan and Nadia are very loving and caring dog people. Highly recommended!
My dog Muffin has stayed with Nathan and Nadia twice now. I've never seen her happier being boarded than I have when I've had her stay with them. They've been very flexible about pick-up/drop-off times and have sent photo updates along the way. Highly recommended!!
Nathan and Nadia are fantastic and Rascal was very happy and well taken care of! Nathan and Nadia were very flexible about pickup and drop off. Pawsome!! was my experience!
Wow. These guys were amazing! I couldn't have felt more comfortable leaving our little guy for a few nights. We were sent cute photos while we were away and Homer came back to us, tail wagging and happy.
Nathan took wonderful care of Hailey. I highly recommend them!
Nathan was so great with our dog, Iddy. He's a very experienced sitter and great with dogs!
Nathan and Nadia are awesome! Super flexible about pickup and drop off, and Nadia sent lots of pics. My dog usually has separation anxiety but seemed comfortable being dropped off and was in good spirits when I picked her up. If your dog doesn't get along well with other pups, just remember to check ahead of time that they haven't agreed to watch multiple dogs at once, which happens a lot on dogvacay.
Bella was very well taken care of and I'm happy to know Nathan and Nadia can be reliable pet sitters when I'm away again.
Nathan was great. The pugs were quite happy and he was very patient with the boys as they can sometimes misbehave!
Nathan did an awesome job taking care of my little guy. Zeus got sick the day before I left, so I was a bit scared to leave him with someone else, but he was well taken care of while I was gone. They did a great job giving him his medicine and making him feel right at home!
Nadia was terrific with Tucker! She sent me pics throughout the weekend and, most importantly, Tucker was happy happy happy when I picked her up ;).
Great dog sitters! They were super flexible and very accommodating... plus our dog loved it!
Nathan was absolutely fantastic. We can't wait to use him again!
We were very happy with Nathan & Nadia. They were super responsive all throughout the booking process and were helpful & flexible as well. My dog seemed to have a great time - she was comfortable when we picked her up and gave them both a snuggle goodbye. It was such a relief to know that she was in good hands while we were gone & I'm sure she'd love to stay with Nathan & Nadia again.
Leaving Ollie with Nathan and Nadia is like leaving him with family. I always return to find him smiling with a wagging tale. Thank you so much for always take such great care of Ollie and especially for taking him in on such short notice!
Our dog Princess had a great stay with them! She is usually clingy when we leave her with someone new, but Nathan took the leash and Princess didn't look back. When I arrived to pick her up, she was sound asleep in her bed and barely noticed because she was so content. Nathan was responsive by text and phone calls to coordinate the drop off and pick up. All in all, we hope to use them again!
Nathan and Nadia were flexible with our schedules and a pleasure to work with. They sent a couple pics and responded whenever I sent a message. Our large pup sounded like he had a great time. He didn't even seem excited to see us when we went to pick him up.
They took great care of Ernie and were quick to reply to messages and texts. We're so glad we found this service! Thanks!
Nathan was great. He certainly allayed any fears and worries about leaving Alfie. I think Alfie didn't want to come back with us! Will definitely ask Nathan to look after Alfie again.
Nathan was great! He didn't mind my last minute request and was flexible with pick up and drop off. He also was attentive to Charlie's routine and I am looking forward to next time!
This is the second time we had Nathan host Jasper and he loves spending time with him :)
Wonderful caring experience when Nathan looked after my 4 year old whippet for the weekend! Would recommend him highly to anyone. Yup!
Nathan was awesome! He took our pug on fun walks everyday, hung out at the park with her and loved her like his own. He also sent us periodic picture updates, which we loved. I'd recommend Nathan to anyone!
Nathan was an exceptional pet sitter. When one of my chihuahuas, BigBoi, unexpectedly got sick, Nathan called me to discuss what was going on, then actually took my dog to the vet and stayed there while they tried to figure out what was going on. As it turned out, my dog had to be hospitalized and the situation could have become very serious if he had not received prompt treatment. Thank goodness Nathan realized that he was a sick dog and did something about it!

My other dog, Zoe, came back happy and I could tell that she had been very well cared for.

I would definitely use Nathan again.
Super friendly and incredibly flexible when dealing with a few last minute changes. I'm sure Barney was in great hands.
This review is way overdue. Nathan did an awesome job with Ollie! I can't recommend him enough. Ollie absolutely adored him during the week I was gone and more importantly I returned to the same happy pup that I left. 5 stars!!!!
Nathan, was a fantastic host for our dog Farley. With regular updates and photos of our dog we were always kept in the loop and with a play space in the back it made for an easy pick. I would definitely recommend Nathan.
Nathan and his girlfriend were great with Betsy. They clearly love dogs! Will definitely use them again
