About Galen

1 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I'm Galen, and I live in a beautiful, sun-kissed home in Redwood City! I have three floors of fun and relaxation, and your dog is welcome to explore all of that! He can lounge in our living room, catch the breeze on our patio, or cuddle with me in our little movie room. I currently can take pups from Friday through Sunday, so your pup will receive 24/7 supervision and constant love! And here's a fun fact: I teach French so your pup may pick up a French command or two!

I have two cats at home, a boy just over a year, and a girl almost a year, who both love all dogs, having grown up around various DogVacay doggies!

If you need someone awesome to watch your cat, I offer cat sitting as well! I have a lot of experience working with dogs dealing with separation anxiety too. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Galen was fantastic with our dog, Teddy. She gave him royal treatment and kept us up to date with frequent photos. We won't hesitate to book with her again in the future.
Great hand-off, great pick-up, great communication, great experience overall. We especially appreciated the pictures!
Galen is awesome. She has a great attitude, and my puppy loves spending the day with her.
Fantastic! Very flexible to accommodate our needs and great with our dog.
Galen was a great host! She sent frequent pics of Perry and took great care of her. Will definitely book again - thank you! E
thanks so much galen and david! tuna and bailey had a great time and were so well looked after :)
Highly recommend! This is our 2nd reservation with her - the first time she watched our dogs at her house while we were on vacation - this time came over to our's during the week to walk & feed the dogs while we're at work.

She's great with the dogs, very reliable (easy to reach and came on schedule each day) and even though it's just an hour a day she sent multiple cute pics and gave helpful updates!
Galen was awesome. She watched our border collie over the holiday for 10 days and it went really well. She sent daily pics, took her to the park, let her sleep and cuddle on her couch... Our pup seemed very happy and well taken care of, which helped us relax and not worry about her on our trip :)
She is a great host! My dog had a great vacay!
Galen was super nice! Frodo really enjoyed hanging out with her and the kitties and she was very easy to coordinate pickup/dropoff.
Galen was awesome with Amy and sent us a lot of pictures so we knew our puppy is well taken care of. We definitely recommend her and we will book Galen again.
Galen is very professional and reliable. Her home was exactly as what she described and she is so easy to work with. I got daily updates and videos of both my dogs. They seemed really happy staying with her. I highly recommend boarding your pup with Galen.
She is a patient and thoughtfull guardian for our furry friends. She also sent me a lot of pictures and a video so that I could be free from worries!
Galen was an absolutely wonderful dog mom to Harley on our recent vacation. She texted pictures and even videos on a daily basis and it was clear that our precious pooch was very well looked after for the week. I would not hesitate to recommend Galen or to use her again!

Java had a great time at Galen's house. She is super friendly, flexible, and knowledgable. Her home and neighborhood are adorable, and dog friendly. We'll definitely have Galen watch Java again!
Always a pleasure having Galen watch over Lady. No complaints!
Galen is a fantastic dogsitter! She will provide your fluffy friend with the utmost care and attention. I highly recommend her.
A+ experience. Home was clean, roomy, and with a perfect porch sunning spot; Galen was personable, flexible, and kept in nice contact with us. Most importantly, Maggie seemed happy! We would definitely return :)
Kip had a wonderful time with Galen! I could tell when I picked him up that he was very comfortable and well adjusted to Galen and her home. He was happy and exhausted! Galen sent me several adorable picture over the course of the weekend which I really appreciated - she was so good to Kip, letting him hang on her couch, sleep in her bed, and she took him on lovely walks on the marina. We will definitely used Galen again for another DogVacay!
Sparky had a great time at Galen’s house! We appreciated the photo updates and he truly seemed to be having fun. Would definitely recommend and will use again.
