About Stephanie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello pet owners! I live in the very pet friendly Chino Hills area. I have extensive experience with pets having had a dog myself growing up as a child. As well as caring for other's pets whether it be walking, or checking in when their owners are out of town.
I am Animal First Aid and CPR Certified. What makes me different than my fellow furry caretakers is that I am trained and educated on how to respond to emergency situations such as if your pet is choking, stung by a bee, or if unknown allergies flare up.

In my day-to-day life I am a fitness enthusiast who works from home in sales and loves animals. You don't have anything to worry if you choose me to care for your pet. As I treat every single pet I take into my home as one of my own. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, since I know that nothing is more important then the care, safety and happiness of your pet. (:

We are happy to send photos and videos of your furry companion during their stay, although if you wish to enjoy your vacation without interruption just let us know and we'll refrain from sharing all the cuteness we capture.

Meeting you and your pup before booking a stay is ideal to make sure that myself and my home are the best fit for you dog and that they are happy here! Although I've had clients in the past stay without prior meet and greets and we've never run into any problems :)

Please note the following:
Puppies are a $30 per night rate as they require more care and attention. The holiday rate for puppies is $40 per night.
Any pets over 30 pounds will be $30 per night (holiday rate: $40), any pets over 50 pounds will be $35 (holiday rate $45) per night, any pets over 70 pounds will be $40 a night (holiday rate $50 a night), any pets over 90 pounds will be $45 a night (holiday rate $55), any pets over 110 pounds will be $50 a night (holiday rate $60) as they need more exercise than their smaller dog counterparts :) This rate applies to daycare as well.

We never care for large breeds that might potentially harm our dogs. Be rest assured that your dog will be in a safe space when they're with us. We have a fully fenced, puppy proof yard with lots of sunshine and shade for them to play in as well as a multitude of toys.

Private Sittings: We look after multiple dogs regularly. We have found that pups leave more sociable and confident after their stay with us as a result. But if you would like your dog to be the only dog(s) during their stay, please contact us so that we may discuss options and rates.

Food: We do recommend that owners bring the food their pups are accustomed to as it helps them feel more at home but if that isn't an option we provide food at $3.00 per day. If your pup is not taking to our food there will be a $15.00 charge for the time it takes to go to the store plus the cost of the food which you instruct for purchase.

Please note that because we share and welcome our puppy guests to wander our home, if there are any damages to the home it will be billed at the end of their stay, unless of course we are given fair warning such as telling us " little Max likes chewing on expensive shoes" then consider us warned (;

Our home is also fully equipped with security cameras so even when we leave the pups home for an hour or two we can check on them wirelessly with live video feed through our cell phone :)

My house is situated right in front of a park which is only a two minute walk from my front porch. All the pups love it and it's a great place to run around and get fresh air. Morning and evening pack walks will be taken. We do require that a collar and a leash is brought for your pup.

Everything else such as toys, treats, beds, crates, training pads, are all optional though we have noticed having their favorite toy or sleeping arrangement makes the pup feel more comfortable and at home more quickly (:

Your fur companions are welcome to sleep wherever they feel most comfortable on their own comfy dog bed or one our own. If they prefer to be crated at night, we do ask that you bring one as I only have one for Benny and it's quite small.

Not only will your pups be given the best care and all the love in the world but our house is fully installed with an alkaline water system so everything from the sprinklers, showers, faucets, etc. are all filtered. Meaning they will also be drinking the best filtered water available (:

My fiance and I treat all fur babies that come into our home as if they are our children so undoubtedly they will be spoiled here like our own Benster (:

Stephanie is great! She is very accommodating with the drop off and pick up times! I always leave my two fur babies with her and I think they have a good time from all the pictures and videos she sent throughout their stay. Thank you for always treating them like one of your own (:
