About Sarah

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello fellow dog lovers!!!! My name is Sarah. I am a young working professional and have a passion for dogs. I have been working with dogs since I was young and was raised with them throughout my childhood. My passion runs very deep and I am extremely fortunate to now have the opportunity to care for other dogs.

I have an extremely kind, lovable black lab female named Bailey and a very cuddly and playful pup, Leo. They are my world and my closest companions. They can't get enough love from other dogs and people. Both are very social, loving, and enthusiastic dogs. Bailey and Leo are always excited to meet new friendly faces. They can play all day or be mellow sleeping on my feet. Also, they are huge snuggle bunnies and loves to cuddle up with me and their other dog friends.

Our place is situated on a cul-de-sac which gives us lots of privacy. It is a cute cottage with a decent sized backyard.

Our daily routine is simple, but productive. I come home for lunch to let them run around in the backyard or for a walk around the neighborhood. Once home from work, we either enjoy a nice fun afternoon at Elings park, a long brisk walk around the neighborhood or a fun afternoon at the beach. On the weekends, we either spend it at the beach or playing with some friends.

We are quite active and love to play. We can't wait to meet all our new friends!!

****Since I do rent my home, I unfortunately, cannot accept dogs that are extreme barkers unless you have a bark collar that is effective. If your dog only barks on occasion, this shouldn't be a problem. My neighbors are very sensitive to the noise. I apologize in advance for this inconvenience. *****

dogs loved it
Sarah was great! So helpful. I was visiting from out of town and needed someone to watch my dog for a Saturday morning, and needed the flexibility to drop her off pretty early. Sarah was more than accommodating and my dog had a lot of fun playing with her friendly dogs in her yard. If I go back to Santa Barbara and need a dog sitter, I hope to be able to book Sarah again!
Sarah was great, especially with such short notice. She sent pictures and made sure TJ was comfortable with her dog and another dog she was sitting!
Sarah was great! Quick communication for a last minute appointment. She came early, sent pictures of Lexi during her stay, and kept her longer than expected. Very satisfied and highly recommend!!
Sarah was so amazing with our girl Butters. She sent us daily photos which was so reassuring since it was the first time we were leaving our pup. Also, she is extremely comfortable with dogs who are timid and have some behavioral hiccups.
Sarah was amazing with Ginger. She sent me many photos and videos, and took her to the park to get plenty of exercise. Her house is clean and safe. I will be using Sarah again when I go out of town. Thanks so much, Sarah!
This is the third time our dog Cooper stays overnight at Sarah's place. He loves her and her dog Bailey!! Sarah always respond promptly to our request and we appreciate the update and pictures.
Sarah was very easy to communicate, and great with our dog. We got many photo updates. Our dog had a great stay!
Sasha loves playing with her puppy!
Absolutely phenomenal. My dog Kobe had a great time! Sarah sent many photo updates, was very responsive, and clearly has a genuine love for dogs. I couldn't be happier with Sarah's service!!
Sarah is just terrific! Our pup Bodie just loved spending the day with her and her sweet dog Bailey, while we vacationed in Santa Barbara.
Sarah was great and really helped us out! We were heading to the area for a wedding and never want to leave the dog behind, so we inquired with Sarah based on her great reviews and it went so well!

Pepper was in great hands and really enjoyed her short time. Thanks again Sarah!
Sarah is great! My dog Acorn
Sarah was a fantastic host! She lives in a quiet neighborhood on a cul-de-sac, has a backyard, and AC in the bedroom in case the dogs get hot. Her dog Bailey is exceptional at reading the energy of other visiting dogs and as easy to get along with as Sarah :) Pick up and drop off was also very convenient! Couldnt ask for a better experience and would not hesitate to book with her again!!
So happy we found an amazing dog sitter. This was the second time we booked with Sarah and our goldendoodle literally jumped out of the car, excitedly wagging her tail to greet Sarah and Bailey (her sweet and gentle lab) as soon as we pulled up. Sarah is super responsive and sends pics throughout the stay so you know how your fur baby is doing. She also takes them to the park or beach every day so they get a good workout. Couldn't ask for anything more!
We have used Dog Vacay numerous times and never have we had someone better than Sarah. She is extremely professional, flexible and honestly cares about our dog. We highly recommend her!
Sarah was great! She was flexible with the drop off and pick up times. Her home is nice and we got a picture of our dog while Sarah was watching her. I would leave our dog again with Sarah in the future.
She made everything extremely easy for us and stayed in contact the entire time. We will use her again in the future.
She was excellent. Loves dogs. Plenty of room for the dogs to play in her back yard and she takes them to a lovely park. Highly recommended
Sarah was a wonderful host for our dog Millie. She was willing to meet with us on very short notice and was very accommodating and communicative. Millie had a great time and we would definitely choose Sarah again! Thanks!
Sarah was the ultimate dogvacay carer for our special little guy. She's got the perfect backyard where the furry guys run free, and she's got a really cool dog herself which is very friendly and seemed to warm up to our little guy right away. We had her watch our dog Django during our wedding/honeymoon, and she took exceptional care of him, and she even emailed us over some great pictures of him and her dog relaxing and enjoying their time together. Sarah is super nice and easy to work with. Huge thanks to her.
I can't tell you enough about how wonderful both Sarah & Bailey were for my dog Chance. Bailey and Chance "fell in love"....Sarah kept us posted throughout the weekend with pictures and texts that kept us enjoying what we were dong and knowing Chance was being well taken care of. She's the greatest, nice personality, very caring and the one you would want to take care of your child (dog)......We will definitely use her again...

By the way this was the first time we had used DogVacay and picked Sarah...Kudos to All!!!
