About Gwyn

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Gwyn Meraz, I have been a professional dog walker/bather and sitter for over 8 years. I have had multiple dog boarding/sitting and dog walking/bathing companies of my own and have absolutely loved it. I have a lot of experience watching different sizes, and breeds of dogs; from Chihuahua's, Maltese's, Miniature Pinscher's, Miniature Schnauzer's, French Bulldogs, Boston Terrier's, and Pug's, to Cocker Spaniel's, Beagle's, Whippet's, Australian Cattle dog's, Labrador's, Poodle's, and mixes and mutt's of all kinds. I have also watched many dogs with health problems, physical problems, and even mental problems such as separation anxiety. I also have two lovely Jack Russell Terrier's of my own. Lily, and Becca, they are my babies! So I understand the responsibility, attention, love, and care these animals really require. I currently don't have any other job nor go to school yet, so I am home full time taking care of your baby! I live with my parents too, who also adore animals, my mom is home full time as well. We let our dogs on furniture, and have a fully fenced in and gated yard. We also keep the back door open to the backyard so they can go outside whenever they please. I also love taking my dogs on walks, hikes, to the beach, and the dog park, so I assure your pooch won't be bored! I guarantee your pooch’s health, safety, and happiness while you are away!

Gwyn is a great choice! She was excited to spend the day with Chompy and we picked him up happy . She kept in communication with us during the day and sent pics of our dog. Gwyn let us know how he spent the day when we arrived to get him and the experience was pleasant leaving us with no worries. Thanks Gwyn!
Terrific experience for both our dog and us. We received regular photos & could see how happy our dog was and when we picked her up she had fit in with Gwyn's pack. Will definitely have her stay with Gwyn again
Thank you again! We're so glad our dogs love you and your home. It's such a great feeling to know they are safe and happy while we are away.
Great, as usual. We keep coming back to Gwyn!
Gwyn took care of our dog Hatchi multiple times. She is a fantastic dog sitter. She is loving, dedicated and very trustworthy. She is def our go-to sitter in OC! Thank you for taking such a great care of our pup!
Gwyn did a great dog watching my dog. She & her family love dogs and welcome the dog in as if it was their own. The home has a clean, good sized fenced back yard. She kept me up to date with texts and pics. My dog seemed happy to be around her and didn't really want to leave. I would definitely use her again.
Gwyn was really flexible and accommodating to my last minute requests. She would send updates and pictures to put me at ease since it was my dog's first time away from home. I would recommend her if you are ever in the OC area and need a sitter!
Gwyn is obviously a dog lover who took great care of my little guy. Thanks!
Gwyn and her family always do an amazing job taking care of my little Zoey (...who can be a handful sometimes)! :) Zoey loves spending time with Gwyn and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to all of my friends and family! Thanks again, Gwyn :))
Gwyn and her family were very nice and answered all my questions. Drop off and pick up went quickly and smoothly, and best of all, my dog was happy and well cared for.
Gwyn is amazing and makes great decisions in stressful situations. She was watching my two pugs, Clark and Rudy, this past weekend. I was in a place that didn't have cell reception. Clark became very sick and needed to see the vet immediately. She took him to my regular vet who then sent her to the emergency vet. This was an all day and night process. Gwyn did all the decision making without my help and all the work. She saved Clark! She also had to pay the vet! (I paid her back of course). I think she went above and beyond to give both dogs great care. I definitely recommend her and would use her again.
Gwyn was great! Our dogs loved her. They got so attached that they howled on the days she had to leave to attend a class. We received regular updates and photos throughout our trip.We couldn't have asked for a better vacay home for our pooches!
Needed a sitter for a last minute weekend ski trip and my usual sitter was booked. Found Gwyn, reached out to her and it was easy to setup everything with her. Kira had a great time with Gwyn and her family. She kept me up to date with texts and pictures. Picked up Kira and she had a blast. Will definitely use Gwyn again.
Gwyn was very accommodating with my schedule and did an excellent job of looking after my dog and making sure he had a great experience. My dog came home happy and exhausted after a day of fun.
This is the first time we used DogVacay. After interviewing several sitters, we decided to use Gwyn based on the pleasant environment our dog would be living in and that my dog got along with hers immediately. Gwyn was sweet and attentive, but we didn't know her and her family at all so we still were a little worried. We received many updates and pictures of our dog through our trip and Gwyn's family all chipped in to love on our dog like their own. We would definitely call on her again next time!
Gwyn and her family took superb care of Milan. Booking and communication were as smooth and pleasant as it gets. Gwyn kept me updated with pictures and even selfies of the entire family and Milan seemed really happy and comfortable. Milan is vegan and Gwyn seemed to manage it quite well. They seemed to fall in love with him and Milan with them as he came home with a face I can only read as he will miss them. Luckily Gwyn is only 10 mins away and I know Milan will see Gwyn and her family again.
Gwyn helped us when our regular dog/house sitter couldn't watch our pups on over the Thanksgiving Day holiday. She was easy to communicate with, followed all the directions given, and seemed to really enjoy my two mutts, and they her. The house was picked up and as we left it which is always a plus. And our two fish tanks were cared for too. I recommend her heartily.
Was so glad we tried dog vacay! Dogs had a great time! Gwen took great care of my little guys, they really liked staying there, came home happy and relaxed. Was no problems with pick up or drop off. We had to push back our pick up time because our flight was delayed and she was fine with that.
Gwen is very attentive and my dog came home happy and rested (and bathed)! Their property is secure and would recommend her.
