About Irina

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Note: Sorry, I'm not able to take new customers at this time.

I'm not sure if it is fair to others but it seems like I always get the best dogs out there as my clientele! :-) Bella, Cooper, Scruffy, Bruno, Indy, Tina, Smalls, Simba, Lucky, and many others - they all are so wonderful!
As for me, I take it seriously, when it comes to caring for our furry friends, although some puppy goofiness is always welcome here :). I prefer to board only one dog at a time because it is my priority to make her/his stay as comfortable as possible. My house is a great quiet place for your dog to relax and do nothing but a lot of playing, running in a backyard with my dog, walking with me around the neighborhood (which is very safe and green), and just having a good time overall.
To keep it like this, I'm asking for some basics for the pups to stay here:
- No cat chasing, please! (I have two kitties who hate to be chased and get too scared to get inside to eat or sleep). And I love them, too!
- Being house trained
- No chewing on things other than toys, please.
I just want everyone here to be happy!
Daily walk is included in boarding price, not just backyard runs. I will send daily updates and pictures of your happy pet so you can enjoy your getaway with peace in mind!

I also offer visits during the day just to check-up and/or dog walks.
Our dog is a 6 y/o golden retriever, very friendly, who loves to run and play. She's gentle and very intelligent.
We have a great yard with a pool (NOT FENCED) and a pretty good sized grassy area. Guest pups are always supervised when outside.
If your pet needs to take an oral medication or on a special diet, no worries! Just provide me with the clear instructions and everything is going to be fine.
Discounts could be made if visiting multiple (2-3) pets at the same house.

amazing as ever:))
amazing as usual
Excellent as usual. Very attentive. Seems to really care for my dog. If my dog did not eat she would place a treat to encourage him to eat. Very flexible with scheduling pick ups and drop offs. Provides regular updates including pictures. Very highly recommended.
This is probably the 3rd time Simba is with Irina. As usual the stay was amazing. Came back a happy dog. Simba loves to play with Maya. We will definitely send Simba back to stay with Irina
My dog enjoyed the stay with Irina
We left Sadie with Irina for our wedding weekend, but we needed to pick her up for some wedding photos. Irina was so flexible with our schedule, and kept us updated with photos of Sadie playing with Maya and eating her dinner. Irina took excellent care of Sadie and we would definitely book with her again! Thank you so much, Irina!
Irina was amazing. Very pleasant and flexible & polite. Simba loved staying with her and seemed to have lot of fun:). Will definitely leave Simba with Irina next time we go on a vacation
I was visiting the San Ramon area and needed a 12 hour time frame for dog-sitting due to a family event. Irina was kind enough to open her schedule to allow this to happen. My golden retriever did not want to come back home with I'm thinking she had a great time with Irina and Maya. She is attentive to safety in the backyard (which has a pool) and always monitors the dogs when they are outside.
Irena is amazing. I cannot imagine anyone who is more flexible and kind. Your dog will be very well taken care of.
Irina took excellent care of Mattie! It was Mattie's first visit with Irina and her dog Maya and I truly appreciate all her photos and feedback on how things were going. I can't thank them enough!
Irina was an absolute blessing for us and our big puppy, Rusty. We were able to have a worry free vacation while getting regular picture updates. Highly recommend Irina!
Irina was wonderful! Very reliable and so sweet to my dog. She sent us texts and photos of our dog having fun playing and walking. I'm happy to recommend her.
Irina was really nice. Initially I was very skeptical to leave my dog with a stranger, but she made it all very easy. She kept me updated about what my dog was doing throughout the day with messages and pics. She was also available to talk to on the phone anytime.That helped me a lot to have a relaxing vacation knowing my baby was in good hands. I 100% recommend her to anybody who wants to leave there dog without being worried. Thanks Irina.
Irina watches Cooper often. She is always wonderful. See other reviews.
Irina is always so good to our pup. Pictures, walks, always reassuring me that Cooper is good and happy. Thank you Irina.
As usual, Irena and family cared for my dog better than we do at home... I cant imagine there could be anyone better out there.
As always Irina was wonderful. Left Cooper over the Holidays : ( and Irina took care of my pup perfectly! thank you again Irina!!
Irina is Cooper's second family. I have used her very much and will continue to do so as long as she will have me. She has helped me on business trips and is helping me over the holidays.
She is a life saver. Cooper loves her and her family very much.
Thank you Irina!
Irena and her family are perfect hosts for dogs (and people!) Irena asks all the right questions and makes sure she is clear on what my dog likes/needs. We got pictures and updates everyday. Irena is very accommodating and pleasant to work with. Her dog Maya, is sweet and playful. My dog was seriously spoiled at her house (in a good way). Honestly, she actually cared for him better than I do! I am very lucky to have met her.
Irina was wonderful with Charger! Our dog had never been away from us and Irina did an amazing job making him feel comfortable and treating him like her own dog....lots of attention, multiple daily walks. She provided constant updates on how he was doing via texts and pictures. We were able to enjoy our time away and not worry. Thanks Irina!!
Irina was great!
This is the second time I have used her, and why wouldn't i? She is wonderful with Cooper!
She is probably the best value out there and her dog Maya, is the perfect host!
She treated our dog Cooper very very well, with photos, walks, and most important.... LOTS OF LOVE!
Thank you Irina and Maya!
Irina was wonderful, took me as a newbie on 3 hour notice. Was wonderful to Cooper and myself. Kept me informed at least twice a day with pictures and encouragement. Felt horrible about leaving Coop with a stranger ( he has never been left with an unknown)! Irina made sure Cooper was at ease and with a "at home" feeling.
I would recommend Irina very strongly. Will most definitely be using her again!!!!
Irina came and walked our two pooches while we were away for a wedding. She sent us pictures via text of their walk. She was very friendly and professional. And she has an excellent response time. We would definitely use her services again!
Irina is awesome! Bella had the pleasure of being her very first overnight guest, and stayed for a whole week :) She sent me pictures, gave me updates and it helped me enjoy my vacation to know she was well taken care of. Highly recommended!!
