About Courtney

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
What is there not to love, we live in a great area with an abundance of hiking, swimming or just plain lazy days to relax. If your pooch likes to swim, this is the ultimate pet resort for them. Playing ball, diving off the dock, kayaking, or taking a relaxing boat ride. We can accommodate those that prefer to stay on land as well.

I also do customized day trips to the beach, kayaking and trail running for the adventurous at heart.

Your pet will be treated like one of our family and can sleep in the bed if they like. I customize all packages to fit what is best for you. One-on-one service is my priority, as piece of mind should be yours.

Cats: I love cats and offer cat house sitting as well as dog sitting! I'm happy to stay at your house or visit your kitty while you're away.

Please note: For larger breeds and puppies my rate is $65/night.

My rates work like a hotel - check in and check out. If your pet stays anytime after noon on the last day - you will be charged a day rate. Thank you

Courtney rocks! She is our go-to-Gal, and I just don't worry when she's here with our four leggeds! Smart, reliable, conscientious, loving..........
Courtney was AWESOME! Why? Because she did the following:
- Provided updates with pics during our vacation

- Did everything on our list for our cats and dog

- Courtney is professional and very nice. She set our minds at ease instantly when we met her and she more than proved herself as a pet/vacation sitter as our fur babies were well take care of and loved for while we were away.

We are booking Courtney right away for our next trip! We can't recommend Courtney highly enough! Thank, you, Courtney for taking such great care of our cats and dog!

Courtney was AWESOME! Kept me updated with photos, took my dog on great hikes, and my other animals (horse and cat) were all super happy with her as well. Courtney will be a go-to in the future. (And she is a great photographer!) My husband and I, and our animals, were really delighted with Courtney and her care of the "kids" and attention to details. Thanks, Courtney!!

Stacy was an amazing care taker for Moglie. She sent us pictures and gave us updates. I would highly recommend her!
Courtney is a wonderful pet sitter! Our dog and cat (and us) were so happy to have her at our house. We really appreciate Courtney's loving care and thoroughness. I would highly recommend her (I already recommend her to our friends). We are grateful to find her and definitely would use her again. Thanks again Courtney!!!

Courtney, thanks for a great day for our Sadee
Perfect as always!
Courtney is very "on it." If something needs to be done and you did not leave directions about it, Courtney will take care of it. She's like Wolf in Pulp Fiction. I love her, more importantly, so does Hero!
The best !
Courtney is fantastic! Very responsive and super patient with my sometimes challenging shih tzu. So happy we found her!!
5 paws again! Courtney is a great dog sitter. I can't say enough great things about her. You can rely on her; my dog adores her.
I almost hate to leave a review for Courtney because she's so great, we want her all to ourselves! You just don't get better than Courtney. Super trustworthy. Courtney is professional, she adores our dog (it is mutual for sure) and she kept us informed the whole time so we could enjoy our Disneyland vacay without worrying about Hero. THANKS !

I had never used this service before so I was a little nervous about leaving my puppy after loosing a dog in Feb to a rare disease at 4 years old. Courtney was amazing. My animals took right to her. She sent me pictures daily and notes everyday. My animals were very happy when I returned home. She took great care of my house and yard also. I couldn't be happier with her services. A very caring and loving person with the animals. I highly recommend her. Five star plus care !!

Our pets, dog and cat, usually had a family member taking care of them when we were gone.They did not want "outsiders". The occasion came up when we needed a pet-sitter.We found Courtney,and she was great!
Our senior dog is blind, and very dependent on companionship; our cat is so shy, she needs to be relaxed with anyone in our home.We and our pets were very happy with the care that Courtney brought to our beloved pets.

Excellent, as usual!
We received lots of cute photos and our dog received lots of love. Great job!!!
Courtney is great. She watched my two somewhat unruly Rhodesian Ridgebacks for a week, and was great about sending me pictures and other updates. My dogs seemed to get a lot of walks, treats and attention from Courtney, which was great. As my dogs can be a handful, I was happy to come back from vacation and see that she had managed them with both patience and humor.

Courtney and Paul were fantastic and Kira was exercised and well cared for. The pictures and video they sent calmed me as this was the first time leaving her. I highly recommend them. Oh they are also close to a park and the lagoon very nice spot!

This was our first time using DogVacay and we had such a wonderful experience with Courtney. We took our dog Duke over to meet her before we left to go out of town. Courtney was so sweet and Duke instantly loved her and her cute dog Manny.

Courtney sent us pictures all weekend long of Duke out hiking and playing. They were so active which was awesome! I felt like Courtney really cared about Duke and I was not worried at all while we were away!

We will definitely reach back out to Courtney next time we are out of town!

Sophie's VayCay with Courtney was Amazing. She got to hike and swim every day and socialize with other dogs which was great for her. The daily photo updates were very reassuring that she was having a great time. She can't wait to go back!
Courtney was the first babysitter Ozzy has had to have. I can't imagine a nicer fit. Little did I know that Oz would have his own swimming dock! He loves to swim and with his endless energy, it makes for great exercise for him. Courtney took him for hikes and play dates with compatible dogs. She would send me videos and pictures of my boy, which made me feel so much better about the whole experience. I was so nervous to leave him, but Courtney has such a calm and friendly way about her that I was put at ease after our introduction.
I have always wondered how someone else would handle Ozzy and his big personality. With his energy, confidence and brains, he is not an easy dog to keep up with. To my relief, Courtney says she would watch him again! Thanks Courtney.

Courtney took great care to see that Kelsey's needs were met. She walked her daily, sometimes twice a day and even went on a 7 mile hike! Kelsey loved her resident dog Manny. Thank you Manny for being so patient with my very energetic girl!! I would definitely call Courtney again in the future.

Courtney was amazing and very tentative to responding to our request an insuring that our two bassets would be eel taken care of, and they sure were. The pictures we received while away showed that they were feeling right at home with Courtney. Definitely will use Courtney in the future for our "kids"

Courtney was an amazing host to our two bassett hounds especially on such short notice. She was very welcoming and sent us great pictures of them relaxing in her home and the sunny backyard. I can tell they felt right at home with Courtney and were well taken care of.
