About Portlund

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Portlund and I love caring for animals and making sure they feel loved and cared for while their owners are away. I have always loved animals and grew up in a home and ranch environment with dogs, cats and horses.
I have dedicated years to volunteer work at veterinary hospitals, zoos, animal shelters and even spent a couple of years training and racing a team of sled dogs.
I will provide your dog with a loving home while you are away. I have a spacious home in Calabasas with plenty of play room in the backyard and a great neighborhood for daily walks/runs.

Always an amazing stay!!
Wonderful host.. but due to unfortunate circumstances with Topanga fire and pick-up chaos...we wish Portlund the best in her future endeavours:)
Portlund is a joy. She truly loves dogs, including mine :) Highly recommend!
Portlund and her family put so much love and care into my dog's stay. Teena, my 12 pound terrier, had an amazing time playing with the other dogs and got loads of attention!
Portlund has been an incredible caretaker for Jake. She has a beautiful, loving home for the dogs and Jake is always excited when we pull up in her driveway Portlund takes him on walks, hikes in the mountains and has had other dogs there to play with him. I couldn't be happier or more grateful to have such a wonderful home away from home for Jake. Thank you Portlund
Thank you so much. Holly had a great time. She seemed so happy when she came home. This is the first time I have used Dogvacay. It was easy to find the home and lovely people for my dog. What a great addition to our life's. I can now travel with a clear head.
Portlund and her family are amazing! My little Shiba Inu was so well taken care of. I went to Hawaii for a couple weeks and they took my dog in as part of the family. I would receive videos and texts all the time and it would put a smile on my face and I could enjoy my vacation knowing that my little girl was being well taken care of. Portlund, thank you for everything! You are the best! Also, my dog came home looking like she lost a little weight and looked healthier than she has looked in quite awhile. She was enjoying her time away from home too! I feel so lucky I found you and your family! Thank you, Portlund!
Portland was accommodating with our last minute request. She handled our high spirited, energetic Husky very well. She clearly understands how dogs think and act.
Portlund and her family are just great. Our dog's third visit there and he thinks of it as a doggy Disneyland. He is always happy there and tired out from playing with other dogs or with Portlund. Wouldn't want to leave him anywhere else and spoiled for going anywhere else.
Portlund was great! What a wonderful home for our pup when we are away. She has our business for keeps here in LA.
Panther had a great time! I received cute pictures of her on her hike and picked her up in a play frenzy. It was great :)
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Portlund...and her family!!! Truly they are all amazing~ loving and fun people. I was nervous beyond words when faced with leaving our two dogs with someone for the first time...dreading the 'kennel' type experience. We have a "retired" service dog and another puppy about to begin his intensive service training, so the desire to have them in a happy and safe family environment was my priority. From the moment I dropped them off until the time they were back home with us, Portlund sent me updates and the most adorable photos/videos! Because of her clear connection and love for animals, we were able to enjoy a relaxing and special family vacation...without a moments worry over our Ruby & Mozart's happiness. Thank you Portlund! You are the only person I will trust with their care again in the future. We couldn't be more pleased and grateful to you for the attention you gave to our sweet ones...and the peace of mind you gave us. What luck we had in finding YOU!!!!! :0)
Portlund and her family are very accommodating and friendly. We are out-of-towners who needed sitters and Portlund did a great job with our two dogs. When we came to pick them up, our two dogs looked like a part of their family. We highly recommend them, and we will reserve with her again in the future!
Portlund is fantastic - she took great care of Zuma who is 7 months old and requires a little extra "puppy" attention. Beautiful environment and Zuma had a great stay. We will definitely be requesting Portlund again.
Can't say enough good things about Portlund and my puppy would agree. Cinnamon had free range of the house and backyard, got treats and walks with her friends. She had lots of furry friends to play with and was treated as one of the family. Portlund sent us photos and a video or two of Cinnamon playing with her new friends. The home was clean, spacious and Cinnamon came home smelling wonderful. Cinnamon is looking forward to a return stay.
Our dog had a wonderful stay here with Portlund. He played hard, walked and enjoyed time with their nice family. Portlund even sent little video and photo updates so we could see how happy he was. Would definitely trust her with our dog again. Thanks!!
Great Host. Sent photos and videos while we were away. Super friendly and Lago was really happy when we picked her up. Highly recommend Portlund:-)
Portlund and her family were great hosts for our two little dogs! They loved it from when I dropped them off until pick up! It was a super last minute reservation but she was so accommodating and very flexible for drop off and pick up. We would definitely recommend her and hope to use her hosting services again. Thank you soooo much!
Portlund was awesome. We left our two large German Shepherd's with her for a week. She sent me texts and emails to update me including photos. Our dogs were very happy at her house! We highly recommend Portlund.
Portlund and her family were super caring and a I couldn't have felt better about leaving my dog Moonshine with anyone else! They had the perfect home to host and brought Moonshine on walks/hikes regularly. Definitely a five star in my opinion! :-)
We had an amazing experience with Portlund!!! She took great care of our dog Noodles for more than two weeks, while we were out on vacation this December. She went above and beyond. Noodles is a finicky eater to begin with, and Portlund even added chicken broth into his food to make sure he ate well while at her home. Noodles loved the frequent walks with Portlund and her family, and he now misses having these long walks. I think Noodles was on vacation of his own at Portlund's house, while our family was out on vacation. We did not have to worry, because Portlund was also diligent in keeping us posted and sent frequent pictures during the two week stay, and even a video of him. My wife and I cant say enough about our wonderful experience with Portlund, and we will definitely leave our dog with her again. Portlund is a real dog lover and it was important that she was loving and caring to Noodles. We are so happy we found her. Thank you Portlund!!!

My dog was very relaxed and happy. The family is very nice and inviting. I will sure to use them again in the future.
Portlund was simply amazing. She was able to take our pup in on a days notice. During the time our pup was with Portlund, she would update us with pictures and videos. She lives in a very nice and safe neighborhood and her house is simply lovely.

Highly highly recommended.

Thanks Again Portlund!!
