About Stuart and Hayley

My wife Hayley and I live in a large first floor apartment in Silverlake that is basically a glorified doggie den, with dog beds and rugs for napping and playing on. There is a 'dogs are allowed on the furniture' policy. We share an enclosed back yard with our neighbors who also have pets and so we are a very dog friendly building. Best of all Hayley and I trade back and forth with working from home and so our dogs and any visiting dogs will have constant company and supervision.

We take pet ownership and pet care very seriously and we are both certified by Pet Tech in dog and cat CPR and First Aid and keep a pet specific first aid kit in the house. As our pug Pearl is getting up there in years we are also experienced in caring for the needs of senior dogs who like Pearl require being carried up and down steps, having eye drops twice daily, frequent oral meds and ear cleaning, we can handle it all.

In terms of exercise, we also walk Oscar twice a day so your dog can have regular outings as well as having complete access to our home, our back yard and our laps. I am an avid runner and participate in ultramarathons so trail runs can be provided during a stay.

We have dog sat for many years for friends and family and can provide references and testimonials as necessary. We only take bookings from one owner at a time so rest assured that your dog(s) will get our full attention and care and will not be put together with other unfamiliar boarding dogs. We also understand that each pet is different and has its own routine and preferences so we are happy to work with you to make sure that your dog is comfortable in our house and has as little disruption to their lifestyle as possible.

Seve had a good day with Stuart and Hayley. Their pugs were super friendly to him and by all accounts they snuggled on the couch for most of the day. Easy going couple, great service, would use them again if I needed day care.
I picked up a healthy and happy looking pup about an hour ago. This was the first time I had used a person's home rather than a daycare facility and I did so at the recommendation of a colleague who even hooked me up with a discount card so this booking was free. Even if I had paid the $25 it would have been well worth the care and attention that Hayley obviously paid to Hamish. He was his usual happy self when I picked him up and not at all reserved which can happen after daycare at our grooming place. I'll definitely use Hayley again.

I couldn't ask for better hosts than Stuart and Haley. Communication was always prompt and detailed. Haley was so welcoming when first meeting my pups. They take extra special care to make sure that their car for my dogs aligned with what my dogs were used to at home. I'm pretty sure my dogs were cleaner and happier when I picked them up than the day I dropped them off. I really appreciated the email and photo updates they sent while I was on vacation-it was so nice to know and see firsthand that my dogs were receiving such special care and attention. I was very concerned about finding the right people to watch my dogs and Stuart and Haley were amazing! Thank you!!!

My dog Mesa comes with me to work so I originally had a lot of anxiety about leaving her behind while flying out of town. Hayley put us right at ease and was the perfect hostess. We got updates while on the road with pictures. It was very comforting to know that our baby was in such wonderful hands. Definitely will be using her services again should we need to go out of town.

I booked daycare for my bichon Minkie based on a recommendation from a colleague. I could not be happier with the service that Hayley provided. She sent me ahead of the visit a very detailed dog info sheet for me to complete so that she could provide Minkie with seamless care. I was impressed with her thoroughness. She obviously loves dogs as Minkie took to her right away and she can be a little shy with new people. Hayley's pugs are adorable too and very mellow which is great for dogs who dont like to be bothered too much. I was nervous leaving Minkie for the day but she put me at ease right away and sent me updates during the day to let me know Minkie was OK. I'll definitely use Hayley again if I need someone to watch Minkie and I would recommend them to anyone else who wants an alternative to dog boarding at a facility.

I found a home away from home for my dog Charlie with Hayley and Stuart. Leaving your dog can be a nerve racking experience but Charlie was treated with such great care, it made my time away much more enjoyable. They take time to get to know you and your dog before you leave and while you are away, they take the time to send you detailed updates and photos. I could see in each photo how comfortable and happy Charlie was in their care. If you are interested in exploring an alternative to boarding, you will not be disappointed with your choice. Thank you Stu & Haley for being so great!

My dog Katie just finished her third vacay with Stuart and Hayley. I'm very very happy with them, and no doubt I will be going back to them! Their place is a great setup for dogs, and from the pics they've sent, it appears Katie has bonded well with their dogs! They're sleeping together, etc.

It's really nice when you're away to know that you don't have to worry about your dog-- that she's being well taken care of in a great place. I highly recommend them!

This was the second visit that my dog Katie made with Stuart and Hayley. I know she really enjoys her time with them and their two pugs. From the pictures and regular email updates I get, I can see Katie is comfortably hanging out. They took her on some good walks too. And she is always very much herself when I come to get her-- unlike at the kennel where she looks shell-shocked! I'd highly recommend Stuart and Hayley for your vacay!

Sorry about the super late review!! Stuart was very easy to talk to and had a lovely home. I contacted him the day before I needed boarding and he was happy to help! I got lots of pictures from him and his wife of my little Parsley during her stay. She was a very recent rescue and was very shy, but they were able to have a nice time cuddling with her :) would definitely recommend!

Stuart and Hayley were truly wonderful hosts for my dog. They had her for a little over a week, and I got several update texts and pics of her enjoying her 'vacay.' They took my dog on several walks, she got to hang out in their yard, bonded with their pugs, etc. I could tell from the pics and their words that she was being loved and part of their family.

All in all, I felt very reassured during my time away that my dog was enjoying herself and her surroundings. When I picked her up, she was completely herself and not at all a zombie, which is what's happened in the past when I've left her at a kennel!

I also appreciated that when I was setting up the appointment, Stuart was quick to respond to emails, so I never felt like I was in limbo. I would highly recommend this dog loving couple!

I booked a last minute reservation with Stuart and his lovely wife, and it turned out to be a gem! My dog has a bit of separation anxiety and she eased him into the situation very smoothly. They also have a great backyard where the pups were able to run around and burn off some energy. My most favorite were the pictures and updates! Thank you for everything!

Stuart and Hayley (and of course their adorable pugs) are amazing! they were able to take my dog for an extended stay at pretty short notice. they were great with sending picture updates so I could see how well my Max fit in with their little family and how well he was doing (I'm surprised he wanted to come home with me). all paws up!

Stu & Hayley were absolutely wonderful to my little one. They made sure to send me many updates & pictures to let me know how everything was going; they went the extra mile, as they knew I was nervous about leaving her with anyone other than my sister. They gave her all the attention I could have hoped for & more. I truly appreciate their knowledge of how to care for dogs - my little one is quite shy and anxious and they knew exactly how to handle her to make her feel comfortable. I truly appreciate the loving care they gave her and will most definitely look them up for future sitting.

Thank you dearly!

Stuart and Hayley were great, and my Koko got along wonderfully with their pups, Oscar and Pearl. Hayley sent me texts and pics of how Koko settled in and it was a relief to see him so content while I was away. I will definitely want to have them host Koko again. He came home even more cuddle-happy as ever!

I really liked how Stu and Hayley introduced my dog Gus to their space and the other dogs. Stu works from home so he was able to be there with Gus a good portion of the day. My dog is older and they both are dog first aid certified which is a plus. They are in an apartment but have a big backyard and got Gus out regularly. Gus was happy to see me and looked great for having been at a new place. Stu and Hayley obviously like dogs and enjoy taking care of them. I highly recommend them.

Lovely Dog-sitters!

Our pug Milton had a great time, he actually was a bit resistant to leaving his new canine friends. They gave me a tour of the place and the backyard was a huge upgrade for our urban puppy! He rolled in the grass on the tour :)

Stu and Hayley are both sweet and obviously love dogs. They sent us emails that had cute anecdotes about what Milton was up to... and as obsessive parents we loved every bit of that.

We will definitely use them for all our out of town excursions going forward.

PS: Their pugs are adorable...

Jolene spent last weekend with Stuart, Haley and the Pugs. They were professional and have a great puppy set-up. I picked up a happy, healthy and very relaxed dog. I highly recommend this couple and I’ve just booked another weekend. I feel comfortable and confident that Jolene is getting tons of love and top notch care. Thanks!

Mr Scruff had a great time hanging out with Stuart and Hayley and their 2 pugs. Stuart and Hayley are very easy going and asked a lot of great questions about Mr Scruff and his routine I was impressed with their thoroughness and that immediately put my mind at rest. Their dogs are beyond sweet and took to Mr Scruff right away. I'll definitely be using their services again. 5 stars all around.

Stuart and Hayley have dog sat for us for quite few years. We wouldn't trust our dog with anyone else. We are glad they are doing this professionally now because more dogs can experience their warmth, responsibility, responsiveness and trustworthiness while their owners are away.

During this trip, our dog was under the weather and Haley and Stuart were still able to care for her and get her to take her medication and ensure she ate. We texted them many times and got detailed updates in response. While our dog being sick was a unique circumstance, we knew they could handle that as much as they can the day-to-day doggie care. And did we mention she (Jindo mix) is not the most easy going pup to begin with?!

Finding great doggie care is invaluable. Five stars do not encompass how great they are. Two paws up!

Stuart and Hayley are awesome. This was our first time leaving our dog for an extended period of time, and we were nervous at the prospect. But Stuart and Hayley's warmth and friendliness put us at ease immediately. They and their pugs, Oscar and Pearl, welcomed our dog Frieda into their lovely, comfortable home with a big backyard. They asked thorough questions about Frieda's routines, habits, and preferences so they could provide her with as seamless an experience as possible. Stuart and Hayley were very attentive to Frieda's needs and happiness and gave us frequent text and e-mail updates with photos and videos. It allowed us to relax and enjoy our vacation. And the images and descriptions of her activities confirmed she had as good a vacation as we did. Thanks Stu and Hayley!
