About Bridget

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I have been a dog owner for the past 14 years. My friends call me "the dog whisperer" because I am such a caring dog lover! My little guy, Boss Hogg, is a pug mix and full of charm! He is a senior dog and I have raised him since he was an 8 week old adorable little squirt! He loves fellow canine company so he'd be happy to hang with your dog! He is also a certified therapy dog so we volunteer at children's hospitals and senior centers. Boss has diabetes so we are on a regular schedule where I administer insulin shots twice daily. I am a photographer in my 30s and I work from home so your dog will get plenty of attention from me 24/7 and you will get regular photos and videos sent to you of your special little furbaby. We go on plenty of frequent walks around the neighborhood as well.
I love dogs so much that I volunteer with a few rescue organizations in my free time, I can't get enough of what amazing, intuitive, and loving creatures they are! I look forward to meeting you and your dog!

Bridget and her pup Boss Hogg live in a cute,cozy apartment near the 405 freeway. She likes to take him for walks during the day around the neighborhood.

Bridget works from home so your dog will have undivided, quality attention and care. Boss Hogg used to be a therapy dog so he is good with all kinds of dogs. If you are looking for a calm and cozy place for your pup, you just found it!

Guyfox always has a great time with Bridget. Thanks again for taking care of him over our long vacation!
After a couple of days into our vacation Bridget notified us that it was apparent that our dog was overstimulated in the presence of the other dogs she was hosting. Bridget was extremely patient and professional and did a great job working with DogVacay to find another sitter who was a better match for the situation. She recognized early on that it wasn't working and facilitated a smooth transition and hand off to the new sitter where our dog would be the only dog. In addition, with her calm, friendly demeanor, she put us at ease and instilled confidence that our dog would be safe and in good hands. As a result, we were able to enjoy the remainder of our vacation worry free, and it all worked out for us and our pup!

Bridget was awesome!!My sitter canceled on me last minute and she readily responded to me and was available . Simba really took to her and got along great with her dog :) I'll definitely be using her again.
This was our first try with dogvacay. Bridget introduced us to the process and immediately made Tucker feel welcomed in her home at our meet n greet!
When we dropped Tucker off, he was happy to be with Bridget and her dog Boss! It was a very smooth transition.
During the time we were away, Bridget continuously sent us text updates with pictures and videos on how Tucker was doing. It was so comforting to know that Tucker was in a safe and happy environment. Bridget integrated all our special requests and utilized training techniques that we use with Tucker. Bridget has a calm and loving disposition that makes for a great caretaker.
When we picked him up, I could tell that Tucker was content. We will definitely send Tucker to stay with Bridget again in the future.

Lola
Lola had a great time and met some new friends. She had a big smile in every picture. Bridget has a lovely space for the dogs and was very accommodating.
Bridget was an awesome babysitter!

This was our first time leaving our puppy and we weren't sure what to expect. Bridget was great about sending updates to reassure us that he was having a good time. She texted me at least twice a day, if not more, with pictures and videos, which was much appreciated.

Our puppy, Mosley, had a great time playing with her dog and another one of the other dogs she was babysitting.

She was very flexible in scheduling time for a meet and greet and was pleasant and friendly through our entire correspondence. We will definitely be booking here again! :)

Bridget was wonderful, Cocoa loved her! She gave me updates while I was away and was very accommodating with my schedule(as my flight was delayed!). I would recommend her to anyone with a furry friend! :)
Bridget was kind and attentive to Bailey's needs. So glad I was able to find her thru dog vacay. Bridget is located so close to me and Bailey got along so well with her dog, Boss! Thanks again!
Bridget was a wonderful host to our pup, Guyfox.

Some highlights that I was particularly thankful for:
- Great communicator! I never waited more than 15 minutes to hear back from Bridget via the DogVacay app.
- Appreciate the Meet 'n Greet. It was nice that Bridget suggested we stop by her house prior to leaving our fur baby there for the weekend. She was also very flexible in finding a time that worked for both of us.
- Bridget was very patient in dealing with our pup's quirks. Sometimes my partner and I forget that all dogs don't growl at noises in the night. Bridget went out of her way to make sure Guyfox was comfortable during his stay with her - to the point of moving him into her bedroom when he was nervous in the nighttime!
- Fun updates - we loved receiving text photos and videos of Guy playing with the other dogs at her home.

I would definitely recommend Bridget to anyone considering DogVacay. She went out of her way to give us peace of mind while we couldn't be with our little Guy. Thanks again, Bridget!

Bridget is a lovely person and a wonderful sitter. This was my first time using DogVacay and any concerns I had disappeared after I saw how loving Bridget was with my little Stella. She is very responsive and I really appreciated the photos and messages while I was away.
My dog can be shy and nervous at times but she was relaxed and happy when I picked her up. Thanks Bridget!

Bridget was absolutely amazing!
She took great care of our little Frenchie Pauly
and shared a ton of great photos and videos, and we felt so relaxed, knowing that Pauly was in loving hands. We knew right away she was a great fit for our dog.
She was super flexible in arranging a meet and greet and Pauly got along well with her cute senior dog Boss right away. Scheduling drop off and pick up was a breeze and Bridget was always available, accomodating and just a nice person all around.
Will absolutely go back and cannot thank her enough!

Bridget was terrific with our pup. Her communication was excellent and we loved the picture and video updates! She even went above and beyond when our dog's harness became a casualty during playtime with another visiting dog and she went out and replaced it! Bridget rocks!

Bridget was so sweet and accommodating. She accepted our meet and greet right away and our Nala warmed up to her very quickly. Nala had stayed with Bridget for 10 days, and we received one or two photos each day with a little update on how she was doing, and even some videos. Nala was very well cared for and came back happy as ever. We will definitely be calling Bridget again! Thank you for taking such good care of her!

Bridget is fantastic! She took wonderful care of my Shih tzu, Dublin, while I was away for 6 days. I am always nervous about leaving my little guy with someone new, but felt very comfortable with Bridget during our initial meet and greet. I could tell that Dublin was comfortable with her too. She seems to be a true dog lover and was very good with him. She sent me frequent updates on how he was doing, including photos and videos. It was hard to be away from him, but I knew he was in good hands with Bridget. I would definitely have Dublin stay with her again and would recommend her to anyone looking for a responsible, caring person to look after their pet.

Our dog had a great time on her Vacay with Bridget! We got regular picture updates and it was clear to see that our pup was getting tons of love and attention! We'll definitely be using Bridget again soon for our dog sitting needs. Thank you, Bridget!!

She is very quick at responding to texts and send lots of pictures of Prancer. Her dog gets along with everyone and is awesome too. I will definitely use her again!! Thanks for being there, Prancer had an amazingly fun time!!
Bridget and her bf Eric are THE BEST! I could not have been happier with Nova's stay over the holidays.. She sent me a ton of fun videos of the pups playing together, and even made Nova her very own Christmas stocking with toys!! I had plenty of updates throughout the 2 week stay about Nova's eating and sleeping. Thanks to Bridget's loving environment, and her friendly dog Boss, I was able to have a very relaxing vacation without any worries about my pup. I 100% recommend booking with her as she will treat your pup as one of her own :)

Thank you!!
Hattie & Nova

Bridget was amazing with our tentative senior dog. Her kindness and caring was evident from the first meeting. Our dog was comfortable and settled in no time! Bridget's regular texts and pictures kept us updated and confident that our dog was having as great of a vacation as we were. Thanks Bridget!

Due to scheduling I couldn't book Lilly where she normally goes while we're away. I found Bridget and my worries were over. She came to my place twice a day to care for Lilly and it couldn't have gone better. Bridget sent updates everyday which put a smile on our faces and put us at ease. She is responsible and trustworthy and I will use her services again! I highly recommend her.
