About Meghan

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
24/7 love and care! We will love your pup like our own. We are extreme animal lovers, First Aid & CPR certified, with a lifetime of experience caring for and loving dogs. Your baby will feel right at home in our cozy house with fenced-in, private yard. The best part? No cages or kennels, (unless you'd like to bring your own for crate trained pups!), just the option to sleep in their own bed or with us and our baby, Ella.

My Husband works from home, offering 24/7 care for your pup! He walks, plays, and cuddles with our guests while I'm at work. Rest assured, your dog's walking, feeding, and bathroom schedule will not be interrupted while you are away. I work Monday through Friday, but have the luxury of working close to home and thus being able to come home on my lunch hour. On the weekends, we love to go hiking in the Back Bay or to the dog beach.

Looking for daycare? We have many clients that like to give their pup some extra playtime and attention to break up a long week of being home alone all day. We have flexible drop off and pickup hours and we will feed, walk, and play with your baby while you're at work.

We have a small, 5 year old chihuahua mix, Ella. She is super friendly and sweet, and always welcomes new furry friends.

We know how it is being away from your baby. Just think of us as extended family members, available anytime for text updates and pictures, and most of all showering your pet with love.

Absolutely wonderful. Meghan sent us lots of pictures and some videos and it looked like our Henry had a blast playing with the other dogs. I will for sure be using Meghan whenever we have to out of town.
Cooper and Piper both thoroughly enjoy their visits to Meghan's house. It's great to know the pups are in good hands while we are away. They have stayed multiple times with Meghan and every stay has been excellent.
Meghan was great. She watched my Tucker while I moved and it was such a pleasure to see him unstressed and happy while we were moving. Best decision ever. She was very accommodating for early drop off and sent me happy pictures all day. Would definitely recommend! Thank you Meghan.

What a great experience! Meghan and her husband kept us updated with Ash's activities every day. He was happy and relaxed when we returned. We will definitely board with Meghan in the future.
Meghan and her husband have taken great care of our pup when we had him board overnight. I received plenty of pictures which was great & something you don't get at a regular boarding facilities. I loved the fact that there were other small dogs during our pup's stay which he could play with. I highly recommend using Meghan/dogvacay instead of other pet boarding facilities where your dog will be locked up in a crate most of the time.

Awesome experience. She treated opie like she was her own and took such great care of her! Great setup and she sent so many pictures while we were away!
Meghan and Wael were absolutely wonderful with our pup! We were on vacation and as anxious as Smokey about leaving him but we were so at ease knowing he was in great hands with Meghan and Wael. They sent photos several times throughout the day and kept us updated on how he was doing. Smokey was happy and relaxed when me picked him up. We felt they treated Smokey as if he was their own!

This was the first stay for Cooper with Meghan, but it definitely will not be his last. Both Meghan and her husband, Wael, were outstanding hosts, keeping us updated with photos and texts. It was obvious that Cooper had a great time and acclimated immediately to their home. Thank you for your caring! Cooper also says 5 PAWS.

They were amazing! Easy to work with since my schedule is odd. They sent photos throughout the day. My wife and I will definitely use them next time.
Another great dog vacation for Mike Tyson! He absolutely loves coming to see Meghan and Wael. This was his second time coming to stay with them and right when I pulled up to their house he got super happy and ran right up to their front door. They truly treat your puppy like a part of their family and I am so thankful I found them!! Not only are they great with my puppy but they are also so kind and flexibly when it comes to booking. Super easy and AMAZING service. Thank you Meghan and Wael!!

Meghan and Wyel are great. They took excellent care of my babies. Lots of pictures and feedback while we were away. They accomodate every dog´s needs even the picky ones. I can leave my girls knowing that they will be safe and well taken care of. Thanks so much!

These guys are the best. I received daily updates and pictures of my 2 dogs. I think the dogs both miss being there, playing with the other dogs, watching TV and lounging in the sun. I highly recommend Meghan and Wael.
Meghen took great care of my Chloe. She sent me lots of pics throughout her stay, so I felt comfortable and did not worry. Your pup will be in good hands. Meghen is super nice and easy to get a hold of.
As the other reviews confirmed, Meghan and her husband are beyond amazing. They were obvious dog lovers and made my pup right at home. I was given frequent updates and pictures, and did not worry at all while on my trip. I highly recommend her to provide the absolute best boarding experience I have had!

My little Stella was treated like the queen she is. I received several photos and videos (daily) while she was in the care of Meghan and Wael which both eased my mind and entertained me. It was obvious she had a blast and was well cared for. I will definitely be a repeat customer. They're the best.

She is the best pet sitter in California. My dog loves her and her family. She treated my dog carefully and as one of her family. I would totally recommend Meghan to pet sit my dog again. Thank you. Megan.
Meghan and her husband, Wael are seriously AMAZING!!! I booked less than 24 hours before I would be leaving and they were so quick to respond and extremely helpful answering all my questions.
This was the first time I have every left my 11 month puppy, Mike Tyson, with anyone so I was very nervous going into it.

Wael greeted me and I instantly felt much better about leaving my baby with them. He showed me the house and backyard (which cannot be more perfect for a puppy) and I told him everything he needed to know about my pup. Mike Tyson was nervous at first but warmed up to Wael very quickly.

One of my biggest worries was about Mike having to sleep alone because he sleeps with me in bed every night. Meghan quickly assured me not to worry about that because they would be more than happy to share their own bed with him. He slept under the covers with them every night!!

I also LOVED all the photos I got. Tons of pictures of mike snuggling right next to Meghan or Wael or even sitting on their lap. I could tell that they genuinely loved Mike Tyson and were taking amazing care of him. I did get a little worried that they might not want to give him back though ;) He got to socialize with other smalls dogs as well which was very good for him.

I could go on and on about how much I loved Meghan and Wael but I will save it for next time. I will absolutely be bringing Mike Tyson back when I go on my next trip.

Thank you SO much, you two are THE BEST!!!

Our dog spent the day in daycare at Meghan & Wael's home and she had a great time! Their house is set up perfectly for small dogs to play & roam with fenced in front & back yards. My dog is usually a little nervous with men (initially) but she loved hanging out with Wael, and he obviously enjoys the dogs that are with them. We'll definitely go back to play at Meghan & Wael's home.

Meghan was great! She helped my very attached dog feel comfortable very quickly. She was quick to respond and sent me pictures of him playing with the other dogs. This helped me feel better leaving him and I was able to enjoy my day. I would highly recommend her.

Thank you Meghan!

We send our puppy Charlie to Meghan and Wael's Puppy Playground once a week so he can socialize with other pups during the work week. We are fortunate to have found a clean, safe, and loving environment for him. Meghan and Wael are super nice and accommodating. Communication and updates are great. Charlie gets excited when we drop him off in the morning and comes home relaxed and happy in the evening. We will continue to use their services and highly recommend checking them out.

Our puppy koko was treated like royalty! They took wonderful care of her and were great about keeping me updated on how she was doing. I would highly recommend them and will use them again.
Meghan & her husband were great! I wasn't able to drop off my baby but my friend did and said that she was amazing. My baby rarely takes to other people and I was afraid that he would go Cujo on everyone but it looks like he did very well with her. She sent me updates all day via text with pictures. I was very satisfied. Worth it! Choose Meghan if you're in the OC!

I was very hesitant to leave my pups with anyone while I went out of town I did 3 different meet and greets before choosing Meghan and Wael. I immediately felt comfortable with them and knew they would take good care of my pups. Meghan and Wael did a great job caring for them and sent us updated pictures daily and responded to texts promptly. Their home was clean and had a nice backyard area for the dogs to roam and go to the bathroom if needed. I felt confident my dogs were taken care of. I will definitely be using them again in the future!

Meghan and her husband were awesome. They took such great care of my girl. Would highly recommend and will be having them watch her again.
Meghan was a great host! Gunner stayed over night for a few nights and loved it. We got pictures and videos oh him playing and lounging in the sun. He was tired when he came home. Will definitely be using her again!
Meghan and Myel were absolutely wonderful! It's rare that you find someone to love your pet as much as you do but they did just that!! Communication was awesome. Flexibility A+. Regular texts and photos to make us feel at ease. Secure home Inside and out. Would not hesitate using them again and we will for certain! Just all around wonderful people!!!

Meghan and her husband were simply wonderful caretakers of our dog. We received many pictures and status updates while we were gone. They asked good questions ahead of time to be sure they could meet any unique needs and understand his personality better.

They are a joy to work with in general - and we have 100% confidence Snoodle is very well cared for when with he stays with them. We'll be using them as our "top choice" moving forward.

I had my dog, Bella, stay at Meghan's about two months ago while I went on a small weekend vacation to Las Vegas for a concert. This was my first time leaving her at a house and not a boarding facility, but I figured it would be better for her to have one-on-one attention and at least I would know she is monitored at all times, versus being left once the employees went home. Meghan had me come by so that Bella could check the place out and not be as scared the next day, and so that I could get a feel for the place as well and ask her any questions I had. Meghan was wonderful; she booked me last minute and set up the meet up appointment within the same day of my initial message to her. She was so warm, friendly, and genuine. Her husband, Wael, was very kind and welcoming as well. I felt very comfortable and knew that Bella would be well cared for while I was away. I dropped her off the next morning at a time that was convenient for me and was a little worried naturally as a dog mom, but was soon comforted as they sent me updates often, answered all of my questions, and sent me pictures of Bella relaxing on their couch. They gave me peace of mind and were very understanding and accommodating of all the concerns I had. I will certainly be using their service again the next time I go on vacation and can't bring her with me. Thank you, Meghan and Wael! (:

I recently went on vacation for a week and left my Cavachon dogs (2) with Meghan and Wael. Prior to dropping the dogs off, I was experiencing some anxiety about leaving my babies with dog sitters I had never used before. We did a Meet and Greet which helped calm the anxiety but I still worried a little when I left. Well, Meghan and Wael completely exceeded my expectations. Throughout my vacation, they provided me with daily pics/videos of my dogs and quick responses to all questions I had. My family was overjoyed that we were able to see regular status updates
of our babies. When we returned we could tell our dogs were very comfortable and were in great condition. It is obvious that Meghan and Wael are genuine dog lovers. Their home is very cozy with a large yard which is securely enclosed. I am very happy to have found such a great couple to doggy sit my babies when I need to go away and highly recommend them to anyone in need of a dog sitter.

CC bounded into Meghan's house with excitement after having already been there before. I can see she looks forward to going there because she has such a great time all day. I got beautiful pictures of CC's daycare visit and did not have to feel guilty about having a late night at the office and gym after work. I knew CC was having fun with Ella, Meghan's sweet pup all day! I love Meghan, Wael, and Ella and they are like members of the family. CC is so exhausted when she gets home after a fun filled day. I feel happy knowing she is getting plenty of love, exercise, and time with other pups to play while I am away at work for a long day. Thank you so much for a great day care day!

Thank you Megan...I always know she is in good hands when she is with you!
Always trust that my dog is treated well here :)
They were amazing! They have a backyard for the pups to play and watched over them carefully, sending me daily pictures with updates. My dog played so much over there she slept the whole next day! I felt so comfortable leaving my dog with them - I will definitely do it again! Thanks for everything!

Kylo had a great time! Such a lovely couple and they really loves the pets that they care for! Thank you for accepting my last minute request!
Meghan is great. She took my last minute reservation.
Meghan and her fiance Wael were such a lovely couple to care for my toy pom who is 11. They are warm, friendly and care for your dog with as much love as their own. Their dog Ella is sweet and complimented my dog's personality perfectly. Sasha came home happy and well adjusted which is the true sign of her being well loved in a good home being cared for. They were so sweet to provide me pics and updates which put me at ease and allowed me to enjoy my vacation! I highly recommend Meghan and referred her to someone today! Thank you so much guys

I couldn’t be happier with Meghan and Wael’s pet sitting! They are the BEST. It’s clear they are dog lovers and it shows with every pup they take care of. From the start, Meghan was quick to respond to every inquiry and provide lots of information about the process. My husband and I had just adopted our dog Archimedes from a rescue organization, so we were so nervous to find a great place for him to stay while we were away. Then, I found Meghan’s listing and everything came together perfectly. She answered all my questions and calmed all my concerns. We had a meet and greet and I immediately knew they were the perfect people for our little Archimedes to stay with and feel loved. Their place is cute and cozy with a good-sized backyard—the whole place is super dog-friendly (including a doggy door!). Their small pup Ella is adorable and sweet; Archimedes took a quick liking to her. On the night we dropped off Archimedes for his stay, we felt completely at ease. He seemed so happy in their house! I never worried once over the entire four days, especially because they sent us so many great photos of videos of Archimedes playing with Ella and the other pups they were watching. It was awesome and super cute! Also, Meghan and Wael were VERY accommodating when it came to our drop off and pick up times, which was so considerate. We could tell when we picked him up, Archimedes was so comfortable with them from the weekend! Now, we only want Meghan and Wael to watch him every time!

Not only was Meghan the friendliest person on the planet, her genuine care for our sweet fur baby, Mama, was fantastic. The updates via text and the adorable pictures of our buddy bonding with his daycare playmates were priceless.

She is now the only petsitter we will use: highly recommended!

We have not just gained a pal for our pup, but a new friend!

Meghan and her fiancé Wael were great with our dog. They gave him 24/7 supervision and provided him with a fun place to play. Meghan was very responsive from beginning to end and provided continuous updates (pics and videos) of our little guy. Another positive was that she was very flexible with the drop-off and pick-up times. I was very comfortable leaving our little guy with Meghan because she has a true love for dogs and the knowledge to properly care for them!

I take Tzvi for daycare and I feel that he is safe and happy :)
Really pleased after leaving my dog with Meghan. I was pretty nervous because he can be a handful, and has separation anxiety. However, after dropping him off, Meghan put me at easy with a steady stream of messages and pictures to let me know he was doing well, playing with the other dogs, and not showing any signs of stress. Thanks again Meghan!

Meghan and Wael were our angels this past weekend! CC is a rescue puppy and they made her feel right at home. Even when CC had additional health items to be observed, Meghan and Wael were very understanding and treated CC as their own. I am excited to have these new members of our family to trust when we are away and can not take CC. Thank you so much for making my vacation!

This was my dog's second visit to Meghan's, but his first time sleeping over. I'm convinced he had so much fun and didn't want to come home. =)
Megan was amazing. My little one did not want to eat her food and Megan was so sweet to make her an egg. She took such great care of her and always updated us on how she was doing. We will definitely use her again!!!
This was our first time using DogVacay and it could not have been a better experience! Meghan responded to all of my messages and questions promptly and immediately made me feel 100% comfortable leaving my dogs with her. We have always relied on a family friend for pet sitting so I was nervous to use a stranger (especially because one of my pups is extremely anxious), but Meghan made me feel like a friend right away. She was friendly, professional, kind, and showered my dogs with affection during their 4 day stay. She sent me messages and videos every day we were gone and made sure my dogs got exercise and love - I know they had a blast! I will definitely use Meghan in the future and HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for somewhere safe and fun for their pups to go.

Ella and Meghan were so welcoming to my little pup. The pictures and video I got showed how much fun he was having. The house is secure and pet friendly. I'm so glad I tried out this service and they were my first experience.
Meghan was awesome with my puppy! I was so anxious about leaving him for the first time, but she immediately made me feel comfortable. She is obviously great with dogs and has a calm, caring demeanor. She sent me video and pictures of my puppy playing, walking, and napping at the end of the day! I wish I lived in the area so that she could be a permanent sitter for my puppy, because she is truly amazing!!

Meghan is a life saver! She is absolutely wonderful! She was very flexible with my meet & greet, as well as my drop off/pick up times. Her dog Ella is the sweetest! And her and Paisley are new best friends! I'm so happy that Meghan was available, and would recommend her to everyone! She's a true dog lover, and I'm so grateful to have found her on DogVacay!

Meghan was a fantastic host for our dog Lucy. She clearly loves animals and treated Lucy as her own. She keeps in contact with pictures and videos. We will definitely be using her again!
Wow, talk about a fantastic sitter! She is so understanding and warm. Wednesday instantly loved her, she worked with her and her potty training and was very patient with all of Wednesday's needs. She is 100% recommended! We have found our preferred sitter for any Vacay needs. Thank you again so much!

Freddy loved staying with Meghan and Ella. Meghan really loves animals and it comes thru immediately as my dog didn't want to leave her! We will definitely choose Meghan again for care of our animals. Thank you Meghan! You are awesome!
If I could give 6 stars I would! As an owner of two dogs, I know the worries involved leaving them in someone else's care. Meghan completely relieves these worries! She treated my dogs as her own. I received updates on their care and was always welcome to contact her if I had any questions/concerns. She has a genuine love of dogs and concern for their well being....this, combined with her open communication makes me feel more than comfortable leaving my special pups in her care!

If you want someone who will truly love your baby as much you do or more I would definitely make a reservation. You will be at peace the moment you see them.

Meghan and Ella is so genuinely nice and welcoming to your fur baby. She made a video of him at the beach and made him feel at home (When I didn't even ask her to). He definitely had a fun time because when we were on the way home he was snoring!

I highly Recommend! She deserves ten stars!
