About Bluesette

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I feel a real peace of mind comes from knowing that your pet is being cared for by a professional yet still in a environment they are used to. I am a true and bona-fide animal lover! I love and respect all of God's creatures from the animal kingdom. However, I have most experience in caring for dogs, cats, birds, horses. I work well with pets one-on-one; and/or as a group too. I look forward to caring for the animals' basic needs as well as spending quality time; for example going on long or repetitive walks is a plus since I love being out doors; and/or field-trips to local dog friendly parks where the animal can have free range association with others' is very rewarding. I believe animals deserve to be in an environment that is friendly and familiar so they can maintain their diet and routine and receive personal attention, where instead being cooped-up in a kennel animals may not receive the proper exercise, attention or love they deserve. Animals are people too! :-)

Blue was awesome! She was super communicative throughout the entire process and was super sweet with my sometimes shy dog. She sent us lots of fun photos and made us feel 100% sure that our furball was in great hands while we were away :) I would highly recommend Blue!

Great communication throughout the stay, thank you so much for watching Jax!
Blue is amazing! We had our dog walker cancel last minute and she was so accommodating and wonderful with our pup Copper!! I will definitely be a return customer :) thanks Blue!
Blue did a great job both housesitting and puppy sitting while I was gone for 3 weeks. She kept in daily contact (including pics!), which was very helpful for a new puppy owner! I came home to a very clean house, flowers, and gifts for my puppy. I was obviously very nervous about leaving a young puppy, but the experience ended up great and I would certainly recommend Blue's services to others!

Blue exceeded every possible expectation. I boarded Cocoa at a local kennel 5 years ago and I vowed NEVER to do it again. Since I think of Cocoa as a close friend, I missed several opportunities for travel because I couldn't stand the thought of Cocoa having to survive in a kennel.

I recently had a trip planned to the East Coast for college tours for my daughter. I desperately wanted to go, but I was increasingly distraught when friends and family would not be able to take care of Cocoa. A friend had heard of DogVacay, so out of sheer panic I checked it out. I looked through the bios and there were several that looked promising, but one stood out. Blue's bio exuded a warmth that was palpable even through the screen of an iPhone. I reached out to Blue and she responded the same day. when we talked we determined that it would be best if Blue stayed at my apartment while taking care of Cocoa. She came by for a tour and meet and greet. Cocoa and I knew immediately that Blue was the one.

During the trip Blue sent several pics of Cocoa enjoying the environs of Marin. I was enjoying -19 wind chill in NYC, but it warmed my heart knowing that Cocoa was in such good hands. I would unquestionably work with Blue again and if she is at all representative of DogVacay I would feel comfortable talking with other members if, for some reason, Blue's schedule didn't work out. If you need to know that your pet is in good hands while you're on a trip, check out DogVacay and look for Blue!

Blue was just wonderful! We went for a meet & greet and Casanova immediately took to her so I knew I was leaving him in good hands. This was the first time we were leaving our baby in someone else's care so we were a bit stressed. She sent me texts and photos every da. And, lo and behold, in every one he was smiling! I'm sure Cass will be excited the next time we go away so he can vacation in Sausalito with Blue again!

Amazing!!
Bluesette was amazing! She sent texts and photos every day of our dog playing at dog parks, cuddling with her on the couch, and other fun. She couldn't be nicer and we will definitely use her again! Excellent dog sitter- your pup will be loved.
Blue was wonderful- my golden retriever had a great time over Christmas with her. Blue sent regular pics of our puppy and even gave him a box of homemade treats for the holiday. Highly recommended.
Bluesette is awesome!
We just moved to the area and couldn't have been happier with the personalized service and loving care our dog received from Bluette. She was responsive, caring and absolutely wonderful! When we returned our dog was happy and content, a true sign of good care. We will absolutely use Bluette's services again.

A really good person. I would recommend this lovely young woman to anyone.
Highly recommend Blue, she was fantastic! My reservation was last minute and I so appreciated that she was responsive and flexible to make it all work out. She regularly sent photos and updates while we were out of the country which eased our minds and let us know our little guy was being well cared for and having his own awesome vacay trekking around Marin. Thank you Blue!

Colby and Dolce were happy as can be as usual after their time with Blue. I also enjoy all the pics she shares while I am away!
Blue is great. She was easy to communicate with and very flexible when it came to exact timing for drop off and pick up. You could tell from the beginning that she was going to give Jolene 100% of her attention. I'd recommend Blue to anyone who is considering having her take care of your pup.

Thanks the dogs came happy as always!
Blue is so great. Very kind and treats my dog so well. She's lovely and I trust her completely with both my dog and my home.
We adore Bluesette! She is a warm and friendly and loves our dog. Could not be happier with the care and love he received. We will definitely use her again.
Blue was fantastic and took great care of our dog and cat. We had Blue house sit when she cared for our pets and she was wonderful. She is dependable, reliable and sent us frequent notes on our pets while we were away. Upon our return our cat and dog were happy and the house was well cared for!

Bluesette was great! Kept me informed about what was going on with Monkey and he come home tired and happy. Will definitely let Monkey vacation with her in the future.
Blue is the best! Roxie adores her & so do I!!!
We love Blue - she is an amazing caregiver! Thank you for taking such good care of Kermit - he thinks you're pawsome too!
Great experience with Blue again, she is great!
Blue is amazing! She is both generous and kind and a fabulous caretaker. Thank you, Blue, for all you've done for Kermit.
Blue is the sweetest, most thorough, and most committed dog sitter I have found on DogVacay. She took the time to come over for a meet and greet at our home, and she even brought treats for Gigi as a greeting gift. Blue was gracious enough to stay at my home during my travels, so that Gigi could feel more at ease. I received several pictures through out the week with updates on their adventures at the beach and at play-dates with other loving dogs of Gigi's size and sensitivity. Blue texted me every morning and evening with updates on how Gigi was doing. I am so grateful to have met Blue, and I will definitely be reaching out to her for my next Gigi-sitting need. Thanks, Blue! You are the best!

Blue was amazing! After previous dog sitting experiences (not dogvacay sitters), I was afraid to leave my boys at all. I was literally driving on trips when I would normally fly because I had to bring my 2 boys with me.

After this weekend with Blue, I know they will be well taken care of whenever I am out of town. She sent me the cutest pics of them romping around at the beach and other fun stuff. When I came home they seemed super happy and exhausted from their fun weekend.

I know they are looking forward to another weekend with Blue soon!

Also to note, I have a dog that requires insulin shots twice a day, and she handled his needs perfectly :)

LoLa had a great time with Bluesette. We will definitely be asking her to puppy sit again in the future! Thank you Darling!
Blue is a wonderful human being. She treats my dog with love and kindness and is very patient with me and my ridiculous schedule. I'd recommend her to anyone.
Blue lived up to our expectations and then some! She have us a frequent stream of text updates and sent out numerous photos of her day with our spirited pooch. She took our dog out numerous times a day and she had a vacay of her own which helped us enjoy our vacation. We will definitely use Blue again and would refer her to anyone.

Btw, a dog hotel told us that our dog wasn't ready to sleep over and was too nervous with seep ratio anxiety and we would have to spend sessions there before they would take her overnight. This lead us to explore dogvacay and we are so happy to have found Blue!!! Thanks dogvacay!!!

Blue was great! My dog loved her and she was a great guest in my home. She sent updates and photos to make sure I knew all was well. Really positive and lovely person.
Blue was great. Very communicative, sending updates and posting pictures regularly. Our dog looked like he had a great time while we were gone. We will definitely book with her again.
Blue was like a surrogate mom to our special little weirdos, and Roxy was even a little hesitant to leave her new BFF. Blue managed the routines and medications for both of our babies, including Elby's special feeding routine for her gastrointestinal issues, and Roxy's insulin injections for her diabetes. I have no hesitations in recommending Blue as a wonderful caregiver and friend of animals.

Coco had a fun adventure day with Blue. Blue was warm and sweet with her, introduced her to some new doggy friends, and kept me well informed with text updates and photos. Great experience all around!
Mia had a wonderful time with Blue: and her other new dog friends. Bluesette was good with my energetic terrier and flexible with my schedule. She kept me updated and sent many pictures of walks & a picnic. I think Mia's long weekend was a true vacay for her!

Blue took amazing care of our three dogs while we were away on a work trip this week. She is so responsible and a great communicator, we loved getting the wonderful photos of our dogs each day and hearing the updates. She is the best!
Fantastic as always!
Blue is wonderful. She is sweet as pie and very responsible, and dependable. She is a great communicator and never leaves us wondering about any little details, I love that about her. Our pups love her and we do too!
Blue is amazing! She is friendly, responsible, professional and loves Nellie! Who could ask for anything more in a pet sitter! She leaves my place cleaner than when I left! Will be hiring her again!
Blue is fantastic. She sent me regular updates including pictures of Nellie. Nellie seemed happy and the whole experience was seamless. She stayed over and left my home spotless! I will definitely request her again!
Blue is simply amazing! She took such good care of our dog with several daily updates and sent lots of photos of him which was assuring and fun while we were away. Our flight home ended up being delayed and we arrived back in town around midnight, Blue was understanding amd pleasant and happy to see us, and sad to see our boy go. Couldn't be happier with her.

We just returned from a 2 week vacation and our dogs Meg and Claus once again had a wonderful time with Blue. I just can't say enough about Blue and the quality care she provides. We highly recommend her.
We just had Blue stay at our home with our 3 month old puppy and 14 year old dog. She was absolutely wonderful. I love that she updated us multiple times a day letting us know how they were doing - there was never any question that our babies were in good hands. Thank you Blue, we will definitely be using your services again!

Roxie love to be with Blue. What better recommendation could there be??
Bluesette went above and beyond when house sitting my two dogs. She kept me updated each day through text messages and vacay photos, got toys to play with them, and made sure everything was cleaned up after the dogs. I know my dogs had a great time with her.

Bluesette is great. She was very responsive and communicative throughout the process. Will definitely use her services again. Romeo seemed quite happy!
Blue went above and beyond the call of pet-sitting duty with my dog. Not only did she keep me up-to-date with texts and pics, she also protected him when another dog attacked him and gave him a bath! She kept him busy and happy with daily trips to the dog park and beach and multiple walks a day. She treated him like her own. I would absolutely recommend Blue and definitely book her again. Thanks, Blue!

Thank you Blue! :)
My dog was so happy with Blue. She took such good care of him, and paid attention to all the details (drops at night, drops in AM, special food, etc). Not only was the dog support perfect but she took care of my home like it was her own. No, questions, I'll call Blue every time my boy needs a sitter.

Blue is so wonderful, thorough and kind. She really cares about the animals and it shows! ;)
Blue did a great job taking care of Roxie. I saw them coming down the street before Roxie saw me & she was walking so happily & confidently that I knew Blue was a great sitter! We will definitely be visiting her again! Thanks, Blue!
Bluesette and her friend were very good to Lucy. I will definitely use her when the need arises.
Bluesette took excellent care of our 2 elderly dogs for 3 nights while we took a much needed long weekend. She sent us frequent updates and pictures of our dogs enjoying their stay with Blue. I would definitely use her services again. Our dogs were happy and well cared for. Blue you are a gem... Thanks!

Bluesette took WONDERFUL care of our lab for two weeks while our family was on an overseas trip. Her frequent updates and pictures of our dog enjoying his daily adventures around Sausalito always brought smiles to our faces! Thanks again Blue!
