About Johanna

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

Our names are Luis Gallardo and Johanna Vapaavuori and we are a young couple who share a love for animals (specially dogs). Johanna has a 9 year old borderterrier named Yazzi who sadly is living in Finland since she decided it's best for her to stay there with her family while she studies in Canada. Luis has had two pugs in his life, and taken care of many dogs from friends.

At this residence there is a big living room which dogs have a lot of space to play in or just be in. We like to go on long walks and Kitsilano Beach is nearby which is a great place for dogs.

We have experience training dogs, and are okay with dogs that need extra care and have some more specific rules to follow, also we are alright with dogs who are usually allowed to be on the couch to make themselves at home when they are with us. Please let us know your specific needs for your dogs and we will be happy to provide them for you.

Luis and Johanna couldn't be nicer and Cooper seemed to love them. Cooper is still only a 9 month old pup and 'adventurous' but they knew how to take care of him.
The hosts were awesome. Very sweet and sent us photo updates- which we loved. They also were very accommodating when we decided to stay longer and pick up our dog later in the day- very appreciated. We will for sure use them again. Felt comfortable and our dog was in great spirits. Thank you!

First time we have used this service and I am more than happy with the hosts we got.

We dropped off our little girl with Johanna and Bear was comfortable with her right away.

I mentioned to Johanna in our brief conversation to that I would appreciate her taking pictures of Bear while she was with them and she totally delivered! We appreciated this so much seeing as Bear usually stays with family, this is the first time we have had her stay with people she does not have a past history with.

They also kept us in the loop the entire time, which we also really appreciated. Turns out that Bear had a little accident on her first night with them but they empathized with her and just made us aware of the situation. We VERY MUCH appreciated this as well.

Overall we have had an excellent experience with Johanna and Luis and we certainly will have peace of mind next time we leave our little girl with them.

Luis and Johanna were very accommodating especially a last minute booking. It was our first experience using DogVacay and so thankful Willow was in good hands. Johanna even sent us a few photos which helped ease. Willow settled in nicely and was not even that interested to see us the next day- which is rare. We will definitely bring Willow back if she's welcome again! Thank you!

They were both great with Whitbey. He loved them right away. Going back again this week, he is so excited.
