About Micaela

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I LOVE animals and doggies especially. I have had a dog ever since I can remember and loved growing up with them, they made me feel safe. Their unconditional love is life changing!

A little about me.... I have fostered and pet-sitted for many years. I work from home so I am home 90% of the time so it is very easy, not to mention fun :), for me to host. I have an 11 year old daughter who is a dog whisperer and LOVES dogs. If it were up to her, she would take in all the stray doggies in the world!

The Pawttage is also right by LAX so you could drop your sweetie on your way out of town and pick/him/her up as soon as you land!

The Pawttage has a large sized back yard, a comfy couch for those who are allowed on it and cozy and family atmosphere. I will take your pooch on as many walks as you desire. Your pooch will have play time in the yard and relax time with me in the evening. I have plenty of time and can fully care for your vacationing pooch. If you feel he/she needs her toys that is great, if not we have some to lend out.

The resident animals are a small 13 year old Lhasa Apso, Blu, who loves other dogs and still enjoys play time in the yard with guests. He himself has doggie playdates with his doggie friends! Ocean the 6 pound Chorky who is 1.5 years old and thinks Blu is his mommy! Cutie the longhaired hamster and Gangster the Beta fish also enjoy their time at the Pawttage. I usually host smaller dogs, but have hosted larger friendly dogs, so if you do have a large dog that gets along with small dogs please reach out!

Consider this happy animal friendly home as your pet's home away from home!

**SPECIAL NOTE: Make sure you send enough food with your pooch, especially if he/she has dietary requirements. If the food runs out, I will be forced to feed your pooch other food that might not be the same in order to make sure your pooch does not go without food.

Also, if you are picking up after 8pm consider that an extra day.

Marvin loves going to Micaela's house! He gets excited/recognizes the house when we drive up.
Micaela took great care of Zelda. Even went on a few jogs with her and she seems very happy when I picked her up.
Baker really enjoyed the backyard and making friends with the other dogs at the Pawtage. We enjoyed getting updates and photos from Micaela while we were away on vacation. We're happy to have found a great sitter for our dog for future occasions!
Buddy had fun and seemed well cared. The back yard was a big plus. I Plan on using her again.
Micaela's place is 6 minutes away from LAX so it's really convenient to drop off your pet before heading over to the airport. She provides updates with pictures and my little puppy seemed to have tons of fun playing with her dogs. She also has a nice enclosed area for the dogs to run around and play in. I would definitely have Dobby stay with her again.

Micaela is awesome! Her home was warm and friendly! Buddy had a great time with her and her family! I will use her again for sure!!
Micaela was wonderful from meet and greet through the whole Dog Vacay. We left our dog, Goldie, with her for 10 days and we got amazing photo updates throughout her stay. Amazing host!
Micaela took great care of my pup, Punky! She texted pics and updates of Punky and Punky enjoyed spending time with Micaela, her daughter, and her 2 dogs.
Great host with a nice backyard. Our dogs came back exhausted!
Micaela was excellent with my Otto. He's a bigger dog than she is used to but she took great care of him and he was incredibly happy when I came to get him. She even sent great pix along the way to make it feel like he wasn't so far away. I'd definitely recommend her for your pooch!

Micaela was very accommodating and was able to meet a last-minute drop-off request.
My dog seemed well cared for and in good spirits when I picked him up. He enjoyed having a yard to play in and hang out in the fresh air. Micaela and her daughter are really nice and clearly love dogs.
Micaela lives in a 2nd floor apartment. She was very friendly, but difficult for an older dog to go up and down stairs to get outside.
Micaela took great care of Lucy over the weekend! She even sent me pictures of her to let me know she was happy and having fun! I would definitely recommend micaela in the future for your fur baby's needs
Micaela is wonderful. She put us at ease from the moment we met her and we are so happy to have found her. Pitch and Madelaine obviously enjoyed their stay. They looked super relaxed in every photo. Micaela has dogs of her own and a nice sized yard space for playtime and exercise...Pitch looked like he had a lot of fun with his new friends!
Boarding can be such a stressful experience on both owners and dogs, but we were delighted with how easy, convenient and welcoming this entire process felt.

Marvin had a great time, as usual!
Thanks for a great stay and for taking such good care of Bonkers!
My dog Margin loves to stay at Micaela's. He always has the best time and she takes great care of him.
Micaela was an amazing host. She provided periodic updates and pictures of my dogs stay at her place, and was very polite and responsive to my calls and texts.

More importantly, Lexi looked refreshed, happy and healthy when I picked her up from Micaela. I would recommend Micaela to other dog owners looking for a qualified sitter.

Marvin had a splendid time at Micaela's. She was a great host -even dealing with an uncharacteristic marking issue by helping find a solution. My pup will quite often get anxious when being puppy-sat and come home with a belly rash but he was all fine and dandy and rash-free when I went to get him so I know he was having a ball and feeling at home.

Micaela was so inviting and friendly. She's a very caring host who ensures the pups are comfortable and happy. She has a cute backyard where dogs can exercise and bask in the sun. Really appreciated her courtesy. Would definitely use her again.
It seems like Mason had a great time staying with Micaela. He was able to play with other dogs and spend time outside running around her yard. I received updates and pictures of Mason playing from Micaela, which made it easier to be away from him.
Michaela was very flexible with regard to meet-n-greet timing as well as drop-off and pick-up. She has a nice little backyard for the pups to run and play. My dog Marvin had a very pleasant stay.
We were glad to have left Diamond with Micaela, she sent us pictures to help us make sure that Diamond was okay, and was easily contactable. We found her last minute, but were very happy with our experience with her.
Micaela was fantastic! Although it was a short 8 hour stay, it was great to know that Cash was a behaved guest in her home and played well with the other pups in her care. I would definitely recommend and use Micaela for future boarding or daycare needs.Thanks again Micaela!

Michaela was great. My puppy had a great time at her home. We will definitely sign up with her again.
Let me say this is my second host I've left my dog Macy with and I'm so pleased that I have found another amazing host. Micaela and her daughter took care of Macy so well I almost had a hard time getting Macy back home. They made sure to keep me informed about how she was doing and from the pictures sent you can tell Macy was pleased to be there. I would tell suggest to anyone that this household is a good fit with the love you feel walking through the door. So once agin Thx U for loving and taking care of Macy for me your much appreciated!!!!!

This is a bit overdue- overall Micaela seems to have taken good care of Oliver. However, towards the end of his stay she informed me that his food had run out, which was odd given I know I had packed more than enough for his time there, which made me think maybe her dog had some of his food. That would be fine, except when I picked him up she asked me to reimburse her for the 1-2 days she had to feed him Trader Joes food. Oliver doesn't eat much at all and TJs dog food is significantly cheaper than what we normally buy him - not to mention I still don't understand how he ran out given the large amount I packed. The whole situation left me with a negative feeling about leaving Oliver there.

Our puppy enjoyed her "play date" while our family spent the day at a water park. Micaela is a good doggy mama and her dog, Blue, is sweet with a good temperament. They have a nice little fenced yard and play area, too. We're all happy and tired!
Micaela was the perfect solution for our dog sitting needs. We wanted someone close to home who had another dog and was a true animal lover. Micaela's daughter was eager to play fetch with Quinn and that was a huge bonus for us! We can't thank her enough. Our pup was safe and happy and that meant the world to us. Thanks!

Micaela was wonderful. This was the first time we had used Dog Vacay and needed a last minute sitter after our usual babysitters had something come up. Micaela was very responsive and friendly and she even helped us our with our parrot while we were away. Our pup Amelia came back happy and exhausted from playing with the kids. I highly recommend Micaela for your dog-sitting needs.
