About Eileen

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Next to Japantown. We go for neighborhood walks and to the local dog park. My dog Mickey likes to smell every blade of grass so we take slow leisurely walks. The complex across the street has a large open green that we like to hang out in. Small yard and patio for sitting in the sun, accessed through a doggie door when I am out. Please small dogs only (Under 20 lbs).

Thanks for having Milo again!
Eileen and her husband were lovely. It was our first time leaving our dog, and they made it very easy and comfortable. They sent us pictures throughout his stay. We would definitely book with them again!
Both Eileen and husband were warm and welcoming. They communicated via text and pics quite often . We did not realize one of our Yorkies had the runs. Eileen gave her kaopectate at my request and purchased doggy diapers. We were 3000 miles away but I felt assured by her care of all 3 Yorkies .
Thanks to Eileen and John for taking great care of our pup Milo. Lovely people, easy to deal with and flexible on times. Hope to see you again!
John and Eileen were great. We received daily pictures and updates while we were away that really kept us informed. Very responsive to inquiries from meet and greet through drop off and pick up. They are very dog friendly, and it was great to be able to find them!
5 stars, always, longtime customers of John and Eileen. They are great
This was the first time booking through dogvacay and we had such a great experience with Eileen and her husband. They took such great care of our two dogs while were away on a family vacation for 4 days. She even sent us photos of our dogs while we were away. We can tell they were people who loved dogs. Eileen was also so nice and accommodating to all our schedule changes. We plan on using Eileen and her husband again if we ever go out of town again.
Thank you for taking great care of Caiden again!
I felt comfortable leaving my Yorkie, maddy with Eileen while I was away. She sent me photo updates and let me know she was doing okay. I would for sure rebook with Eileen in the future!
Eileen and John are nice. My dog was happy.
Eileen & John have been my go-to dog sitter for Ollie in the south bay for a number of years now. They are incredible and Ollie always has a wonderful time. Highly recommend!
Eileen and John were awesome. I was in a bind and needed someone to watch my shy dog. They took a last minute reservation and welcomed Duke into their home. I felt relieved having a safe place for my dog to spend the weekend. They were flexible on both drop off and pick up times making it really convenient too.
Eileen and John have hosted my little Everest a few times now and he loves it! He tends to be shy and attached to my hip, but was instantly comfortable in their dog-friendly home. I was a little shocked that the last time I came for him, he gave me a look which seemed to say, "no, I'm not going home yet!". Thank you for being so flexible with times of pickup/drop offs, and for taking such great care of my little doober!
Eileen and John are wonderful with Luc. He had a great stay, will definitely stay with them again. Thanks Eileen and John!
excellent again. we left sparky with Eileen and John on a number of occasions and have been delighted with the care he receives every time and, as usual they are very easy to work with..
This couple were awesome. My dog did very well. They were very warm and friendly and caring towards the animals in their home . I was very happy with their service and will use them again if I ever need a dog sitter. again. I would also recommend them to any one of my friends.
Thank you for taking such great care of our guy again!
Sparky loves them! And so do we. Eileen and John are easy to work with, friendly and reliable. We highly recommend them for your small dog.
Always a great experience with them. Eileen and John have cared for our pups on 3-4 separate occasions, so we're definitely repeat Vacay requestors. Highly recommended.
You treat my dog like your own, thank you!
Eileen and John were wonderful. Warm, friendly, and made me feel comfortable leaving my dog with them. Snowy looked like he had a great time.
Always terrific and this time available on short notice
Our dog always comes back from Eileen and John in a calm state, they are super helpful
Always great!
This was the first time leaving my little Everest with someone other than family for so long and was naturally very picky and nervous. He was SO well taken care of and clearly had a wonderful time! Thank you so much for the daily photos and for entertaining his need to go on all those walks during the hot days. I'm happy he was in such great hands and looking forward to having him come for a visit again!
Eileen and John looked after my dog for five nights. They have staggered schedules, meaning that Louie got excellent care and attention.

The resident dog, Mickey, is sweet and got along fine with Louie and the other dogs that I saw during my meet-and-greet.
Eileen and John are awesome as usual
Another positive experience with Eileen and John. Will definitely be using them again on our next vacation. Highly recommend them.
This was our third stay with Eileen. Our dog always comes back relaxed and happy, and it is always very easy to schedule drop off or pick up times with eileen
This was Harley's and Penny's third stay. Eileen and John, were excellent host as always and they're always our first choice when we leave out of town.

The last worry you want on your vacation is not knowing if your dogs are taken care of, and with our dogs staying with Eileen and John, this worry is eliminated.

Thanks Eileen and John!
I knew my dog, Caiden was in great hands. Thank you for treating him like your own!
Eileen and John were both really nice and flexible. They genuinely care about the dogs they care for. They accommodated our last minute booking and later than planned pickup. Brewski was pretty tired when we picked her up which means she got some good activity playing with her other pups!
Eileen is very responsive and available for pickups and drop offs. Our dog always comes back happy and relaxed
Eileen and John obviously love dogs and Sparky loves them! This is the second time Sparky has stayed with them and we couldn't be more pleased with the way we is taken care of. I would highly recommend them especially for small dogs like Sparky (7 lb).

Another great vacay. Thanks Eileen!
Eileen was very accommodating to the timing of our trip, and took great care of disco for us while we were away.
Eileen is simply amazing!
Eileen and her husband have watched my dog several times while I travel home to SoCal and back to San Jose for work. They took great care of her!
This was our dogs second stay and we always know we're leaving our dogs in good hands. Thanks Eileen and Jon!
Look no further. He greatest.
Eileen took care of our little Louie for a couple weeks while my husband and I were away in Europe. She was so wonderful and sent us pictures of him on their walks and hanging with the other pups. Louie was in great spirits when we dropped him off and in great spirits when we picked him up. He gives Eileen two paws up!
Maria always makes drop off and pick up so easy! Zoey says thanks for another great stay!
Eileen was fantastic. They were very accommodating of our last minute reservation as well as early/late schedule. We really appreciated this. Phebie had a great time there as well.
Had international travel for the first time since having a dog. It was tough on an emotional front as I missed Noodle-bug very much the first few days. The pics and updates from Eileen helped alot. And, she's honest about where Noodle was at her own self..."timid and then not..." ..."ruling the boys"..etc.

I have two more trips coming up (domestic) in September and November. Signing up again if Eileen is available of course. :)
Eileen was very accomadating with our drop off and pick up times and sent pics of our pet over the weekend. Definately using Eilen again on our next trip.
First overnight for Noodle-bug at Eileen's and it seems it was a great time. Noodle was excited to be there and ran right up to her door. I received a pic later that day as she was chilling with the other two little dogs that were there. All was well.
5 paws! I had a Giants game to go to and didn't want Noodle-bug at home alone an without her own doggie fun, so made a reservation with Aileen (had a preview mtg a few weeks prior) and everything went really well. There was a cute terrier pup there that really took to Noodle and they had a great time getting a walk to the Farmer's Market which included pics to me. I'll be leaving her here for longer durations definitely, and leading up to a week of travel I'll be doing internationally.
My mom passed away recently, so I had to leave Taz, which I was really nervous about because he is a rescue dog & I didn't want him to think we were abandoning him. We set up an overnight with Eileen before we left him for a week so he would know we were coming back.

Eileen & John were fabulous! They made us feel real comfortable about leaving Taz. He fit in right away....met their dog, Mickey, who is a sweetheart, & found a spot on their couch and laps. I loved the pictures they posted, especially the "selfie" Taz took. That had everyone laughing!

I would most definitely use Eileen again!

Making a reservation with Eileen was quick and easy! She was very accommodating to my somewhat last minute request, and was able to provide a loving, nurturing environment for my pup while I was away. Would use Eileen's services again!
Eileen was very responsive and accomodating of our two not-yet-seven-month-old pups. She has a doggy door at her place, but as we do not have one at our home, our dogs had a few accidents at her house the two days they were there, which she was very nice about. Her dog Mickey is very sweet, and I think Storm and Rogue enjoyed their stay. She does take care for multiple dogs at one time, so I would keep that in mind. I wish she had let us know she was caring for another dog the same weekend prior to the stay, but that is just a minor detail. We'd trust her with caring for our girls again!
Eileen and John took care of Sparky for 15 days while we were away on a trip. They took him at the last minute after our regular pet sitter moved from the region unexpectedly. He was happy and at home from the start and found great new friends in Eileen and John and in their small dog Mickey.
We were Very, Very happy with his care and with his demeanor and condition when we returned home. We also regularly received pictures via email, which definitely helped alleviate our anxiety while away.
I would definitely recommend Eileen, especially for a small dog.
After our meet-n-greet with Eileen, we knew her home would be the perfect fit for our dog! Eileen is great! She cared for our dog as if he was her very own. She sent updates/pictures throughout the week and made it easy for us to relax and enjoy our vacation! Many thanks Eileen.....look forward to seeing you again real soon! :)
Roxy is a happy repeat customer.
Excellent as always
Eileen took very good care of Bella. She sent some pictures and her other four-legged companions tired out my energetic little monkey.
Eileen is great. Don't hesitate.
Another great Vacay with Eileen. My pup is always excited to arrive at Eileen's house and sad to to leave!
Diego had a great time with Eileen and Mickey! He was clearly very comfortable with her and in her home. She was always responsive to my messages and I received regular photos of our pup's Vacay. We will be booking with her again very soon!
Eileen was wonderful with my babies Chloe and Brody. I will definitely have her take care of my little ones again. She was very caring with Chloe my older dog. Thank you so much!!!
She's great. Nothing new to add since my last two reviews. Look no further.
Eileen is great. She accommodated my crazy schedule by allowing me to bring Roxy by the house before my early morning flight. She sent a few pictures of Roxy playing and sleeping, even one with Roxy wearing a great hat. Look no further.
Eileen is a very sweet person, who obviously loves dogs. When Roxy and I arrived, we were welcomed into her home, introduced to her dog, and we chatted a bit. Roxy immediately took to her temporary home. Eileen has a small outdoor patio connected by a doggie door. Also, Eileen's home is not too far from SJC, a convenience when you're heading out of town.

I received a couple of photos of Roxy throughout her four-day stay, which was a nice touch.

Next time I need a place for Roxy to stay, I'll be back.
Eileen is great! she took a last minute request and took the time to ensure my dog was comfortable upon my departure. I love the updates and a pic of my pup while Im away as well.
My dog Toby had spent 5 days with Eileen. It has been a wonderful and worry free experience. I contacted Eileen last minute to arrange for my dog's boarding and she responded right away. She is very knowledgeable and extremely loving with dogs. Even though Toby has separation anxiety, he seemed to have an amazing time with Eileen and her dog Mickey. On daily basis Eileen updated me and sent pictures of my dog. I hope Eileen can board Toby in future vacations as well.
Eileen was very accommodating and friendly. She periodically posted updates and photos which I thought were fantastic. This was my first time using Dog Vacancy and Eileen...great experience! I highly recommend Eileen.
Eileen was very friendly and she made sure we were comfortable as well as our dog's comfortability with her. She took time to show us the lay of the land including where she would walk the dog. She was flexible in drop off and pick up times. And she sent us messages to update us on our dogs stay. We even got a few pics!!!
