About Bernice

I have 2 large dogs I walk every day at least 2x each day. Also love to bring them to the dog park in Calabasas where they have a huge area to run. I have a very flexible schedule as I work from home with my husband so I can take dogs to my home or I could go to their home! Would love to do either of these. We are both very much animal lovers almost to being a freak about their health and safety! Our 2 Bernese Mtn Dogs are just the sweetest and love other dogs and our "old man" 16-year-old Golden Retriever is truly a sweetie as well we have no aggression issues whatsoever so that is not even a concern.

On our walks we meet all different sizes of dogs from very small to large and my boyz are perfectly fine with all of them. They are truly big babies so any dog is more than welcome in our home!

We look forward to taking care of any of your precious pets! When holidays are included in your reservation I do charge more for the holiday weekends, just so you know! :-)

Bernice and Chris are awesome! Emma had so much fun at their place (i.e. playing with Rosko all day) - she came home and passed out for the night. They were so flexible and accommodating with both the meet & greet and drop-off/pick-up times. Really great sitters and will absolutely be using them again!

I have been seeking a dog sitter who has experience with large breeds. Bernice & Chris, who have a lovely Burmese Mtn dog, was wonderful with my English Mastiff puppies. Our first meet and greet was warm and friendly. Bernice is loving and cheerful. Chris is welcoming and attentive. They made sure that everyone (including our dogs) were properly introduced before entering her home. Bernice asked all the right questions about do's/don'ts for the pups. She informed me of everything that went on during their first visit. Roscoe, their dog, is also so very gentle and sweet with my pups. You can tell when you meet Roscoe that he is well taken care of. They are both true dog lovers. I look forward to building a long term relationship with our dogs.

Bernice was extremely accommodating and provided timely response. My husband and I really wanted to include our doggies in our wedding. Bernice and her husband was kind enough to drop off our dogs before and pick them up after the ceremony to be cared for at her house. Bernice was a lifesaver and really helped to ensure the smooth transition for our wedding logistics. Thank you Bernice!

Bernice's home is Bailey's 2nd home and Rosko is Bailey's brother. :-) Thanks again!
We so appreciate loving care Bernice provides for our puppy! Thanks again!
I love this couple! I would definitely let my dog vacay here again! They were extremely kind and loving to Beary.
Another Pawesome experience! Thank you Bernice and Chris!
Great as always! Thanks again :-)
Bernice and Chris were great! Felt very comfortable leaving our pups in their hands. Great communication throughout our trip. Would not hesitate to book them again!
Thank you again Bernice and Chris!
I don't believe I can top what I had already said in the past. Simply great and reliable. Thank you Bernice!
The moment we met Bernice and Chris for the initial meet-and-greet, we were comforted by their warm demeanor as well as their overall knowledge about the dogs. We felt very assured about leaving our mutt, Diva, in their care.

They were gracious enough to keep us updated about Diva's status via the text messages and pictures, which enabled us to enjoy our vacation without worrying about Diva.

We highly recommend Bernice and wouldn't hesitate to use her services if the need arises in the future.

They always do an outstanding job with Riley!
Bernice is a real dog lover. She made time for us to meet n greet even though she had a tight schedule that day! They have 2 big beautiful mountain dogs that are extremely friendly and very calm, even with my energetic 4 month old pup. She sent me many updates with photos of my puppy throughout his stay! Bernice and Chris are great, I will definitely be coming back in the future and would recommend them! :))

Rusty was so happy there! Amazing experience :)
Thank you Bernice and Chris for allowing Bailey to get a Vacay with her friends R'n'R.
Bernice & Chris were great. They took good care of our babies while we were gone for a long 4-day weekend. Dogs were happy. We got cute pix of them taking a walk and relaxing at their other home. They were very accommodating with drop off & pick up times after work, which we really appreciated. They were willing to work with us, which was great. Lots of communications.

Thank you Bernice and Chris for taking care of Bailey once again! :-)))))
Bernice clearly loves dogs and took very good care of our Golden Retriever, Riley. Not only were Bernice and her husband Chris great with Riley, they have three great dogs of their own. Riley had some brand new friends to play with. I'm very pleased!

Bernice and Chris,

Thank you once again!
Your home and your pets are Bailey’s and ours extended family; thanks for taking care of every little detail. Highly recommend, yet selfishly want to keep your services as little secret – so we could always be there first in time of “vacay” needs.

Happy New Year!

Vadim and Victoria

Bernice & Chris are the best! It was my second reservation with them for my 9 months Pomeranian puppy! He really love them and their boyz :) at pick up time he was so happy and fresh.
They were updating us every day with "Hunter"'s photo and it was so cool to see him happy.
They are so flexible in reservation and pick up time. I personally highly recommend them!
Thank you so much Bernice & Chris!

We would wholeheartedly recommend Bernice to all our friends.

She is truly a dog enthusiast and goes to great lengths to make sure our 4-legged family member felt like home at “Bernice and Chris’s Doggy Bed and Breakfast” :-)

I encourage everybody to entrust their K9 to Bernice; we had great communications and photo exchanges during Bailey’s stay. In fact our schedule requires us to come back really soon – and we believe our dog is looking forward to see her new friends again.

Vadim and Victoria.

bernice took great care of both my dogs. i didn't have anything to worry about. she updated me throughout their stay, was always available if needed and chloe and sparky had a blast.
Bernice is absolutely amazing. Deen always comes home happy. When Deen wasn't feeling well, she was very quick to let me know and we dealt with it together.
Bernice and Chris were so nice. I could tell they were "dog people" for the simple love of the animals. That's why we brought Stormy there for the week. I know they took good care of her. Thanks again !! Highly recommend their services
Have you ever saw your puppy smiling with happy eyes? That was how my puppy look when i picked him up from Bernice&Chris's house!
They are so lovely and real pet lover!!! amazingly responsive and flexible! Me & My wife felt so happy and relax in our first experience with DogVacay specially when we were receiving Hunter's daily photos and see him happy with Bernice's boys! To be honest they are the first and best place in my mind to leave Hunter(my puppy) and feel happy!
Thank You guys!!!!

Bernice never fails. I had a last minute reservation for an extended period of time and she was more than happy to accommodate. During the reservation, she reached out to me and sent pictures of Deen playing with his friends. She quickly told me when Deen wasn't eating his food and we worked together to figure out how to get him to eat.

Bernice was great. She was very welcoming and friendly. We were a little anxious using dogvacay.com for the first time but after meeting her we felt very comfortable leaving our dog there. We will definitely use her again.
If you are looking for someone to care for your pup, Bernice and Chris are the ones to choose. They have two friendly Bernese Mountain dogs that are equally as awesome. I am so happy that I found such a great dog sitter Deen. I definitely recommend Bernice to watch your beloved pup.

Bernice is the sweetest and most loving animal caretaker I have ever encountered. She treats her own dogs as her children. My great dane loved staying with her on two separate visits. She provides multiple daily walks and also goes to the dog park. Her house is very fitting for dogs of all sizes with a perfect sized grassy backyard. She has no problem with dogs being indoors and on couches. She follows up to check on my dogs welfare even after the visit and is extremely flexible with scheduling. I would not need to use anyone else!

Bernice was excellent! She was quick to respond to our initial request to meet, is cheerful, wonderfully reassuring, and stayed in touch with pictures and texts throughout our dog Abby's stay. I know that Abby was well-fed and well-exercised because she was so content when we returned. Bernice owns gentle dogs that made our dog one of the pack, so that was a wonderful bonus. Bernice has our highest recommendation and will have lots of return visits from us.
