About Sarah

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Sarah Tomson and I am a design consultant currently living in Santa Monica. I live with my fiance, Perry, and he is just as much of a dog lover as I am. So consider booking with me, like getting two sitters for the price of one! We live 4 blocks from the beach and our building has a great yard/garden area. I have been dog sitting with my fiance for close to five years now and I have loved every minute of it. I have lived with all kinds of dogs, from Dachshunds to German Shepards, ever since I was a young child and dogs are still a large part of my life. Since current job allows me to work from home I can guarantee your pup will receive all the attention and love he/she deserves.

Perry works from home so pretty much either he or his girlfriend are in the house full time when they hosts pups. He has a large home that he shares with 5 roommates and a large outdoor area. He and his girlfriend love hosting pups as they don't have any of their own but love animals!!
Sarah was fantastic and Roscoe loved her. When we forgot to bring food for Roscoe Sarah had some high quality grain-free food for him. Thanks Sarah.
Thank you!! Sarah was amazing! I'm so happy that I found a nurturing soul to look after my pup. She kept in touch, sent pics and put me at ease so I could enjoy my vacay while Zoey had her staycation :) I would recommend them to anyone.
Sarah and her bf was a great host to our two pups. They were great with communication, flexible on pickup/dropoff times and when I returned I had two very happy dogs. Thanks so much! Will definitely book with Sarah again.
Mango had a great time with Sarah. She was very straightforward and great at getting back in touch with us. She took excellent care of our pooch. I knew it was a great dogsitting experience for her when our dog *very* reluctantly hopped in the car at the end of the night and whined about leaving.
Sarah was the perfect host for our little dog with the big personality! She is patient, super warm and friendly and has a lot of energy to keep up with our rambunctious pup. Her home is perfect for pups with plenty of space for them to cuddle up. I also loved the updates and photos of our dog loving his time with Sarah!
My pups had a great time with Sarah! She was attentive to their needs and responsive when I checked in. I knew they were well cared for, and I would happily bring them back next time I'm out of town.
Perry was a wonderful dog sitter for my pup! He was responsive to my questions prior to the stay and overall, very accommodating to our needs. He sent along photos of our dog and provided updates often. We were running a bit behind to pick up our dog but he was understanding of the situation, which I greatly appreciated. Also, I could tell our dog had a great time as he is tuckered out! In all, it was a great experience and recommend him to others!
It was a last minute request and Perry was very flexible in accommodating Bronco. Upon dropping Bronc off, I knew he was in good hands. I will certainly reserve again and I highly recommend Perry's dog boarding.
My puppy seemed to have a blast! They were super responsive and accommodating. We'll definitely be booking with them again.
Timely and efficient. The dogs came back to us relaxed and clean. Appreciated the pic.
Perry was great, super flexible and accommodating when our travel plans were delayed and moved at the last minute on both ends of our trip. They were very nice and very helpful. I would have loved to have more pics during the vacation though, but that's an easy fix. Oh and no one seems to be able to clean my Bulldogs folds as well as me, just practice I guess. Every time he comes back from DogVacay he's pretty dirty under his big fold.
Perry was great, very responsive and flexible! We could tell our Frenchie Pup Flex had a great time.
Perry & Sarah threw Cali the BESTEST Dog Birthday Party! Thank you so much for loving my little monster like one of your own!
Thank you Perry and Sarah!
Perry and his fiancé Sarah are the best dog sitters ever. My little boy have spent so much time at their place and he loves every single minute there. They are also super friendly, flexible and helpful and I'm so grateful having them as Maximiliano's dog sitters.
Perry is always very flexible with our travel schedule. His fiance also helps watch the dogs so I feel like they get double the love.
Cali has spent the whole week now with Perry and Sarah. They are so loving and patient with her.
Perry and Sarah were really great hosts! Cali will be coming back next week.
Great stay! Perry was flexible when we were late and always available to answer questions during the stay. Our lucky dog came back rested and relaxed, just like us! Thank you!!
I had to book my dog Cubbie last minute and the hosts were very accommodating - plus Cubbie made a friend in another dog and had a great time. I will be using them again this weekend for my vacation. They have a huge house for dogs and a yard....a bonus in LA!
Perry and his girlfriend Sara were so great to have as sitters! In fact, I contacted them on a short notice after I had a home visit with another sitter who's accommodations weren't impressive.
Perry was really easy to communicate with and always responsive to my texts and emails. He even let me drop my dog off early so I could make my flight! Overall great people and I would without a doubt, book with them again!!!
Perry and his girlfriend were super friendly and they have such a huge house and yard for the dogs to play, and it's cool in the hot summer months. I would definitely have them watch my girl again, she was so happy when she came home!
Perry is very kind, patient, and knowledgeable. There was plenty of room for my dog, Austin, to rest and play both inside and outside. The back patio is enclosed so I wasn't worried about Austin running away.
Perry was very nice and accommodating when my flight got delayed. I like the big house and back yard.
We left our dog Ellie with Perry for 5 days and she was so happy! Perry texted us updates and pictures, and when I texted him he responded quickly. He was also flexible about when we picked her up (we were two hours later than expected due to traffic), and had walked and even bathed her before we picked her up. Ellie slept a lot the next day, which means she had a ton of fun and lots of walks and attention. I would definitely recommend Perry to other doggy owners!
Perry's house is perfect for a dog, and in a very nice location. He took great care of our dog, and she came home happy and tired. He kept us updated through the weekend, and we were always confident that he could handle whatever came up. I would definitely recommend Perry to anyone.
I had to go away for the weekend and trusted my dog with Perry. Everything went off as planned and Berlin was well taken care of. I plan on using Perry in the future for other bookings. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a sitter big dog or small.
