About Dan and Jess

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi Guys!

We are experienced dog sitters located eight blocks from the beach in Santa Monica. We're centrally located on the Westside, which makes drop-offs easy whether you're coming from Malibu, Marina Del Rey or Beverly Hills. We're also happy to come to your home for walks, feedings or check-ins on your pup.

Over the past 5 years, we have house-sat and cared for breeds ranging from Dachshunds and Pugs to Greyhounds and Labs. We both grew up with dogs and consider ourselves extremely patient and able to communicate well with all breeds.

Dan works from home and is available 24/7. Jess works outside of the house and is always able to come home mid-day for play time and walks. Our 1 bedroom house is on the ground floor and includes outside access to a fenced in yard. As a couple, we go for walks all the time and enjoy taking furry friends to Palisades Park, which overlooks the ocean and the PCH.

Dan and Jess were both raised around dogs and so badly want 2 doggies of their own. Until then, we are thrilled that we can participate in Dog Vacay and care for your own fur friends!

Dan and Jess have a fantastic spot to host your pup on vacay. Yards are definitely hard to come by in Santa Monica and their's is fully fenced and the pups are only outside when supervised. They can run indoors for a water break or lounge in the sun or shade. Dan is more often the one at home and is usually there for most of the day aside from a couple errands. If your dog needs a bit more supervision than someone who is at work for the day Dan is your work from home dog care extraordinaire. Their love for dogs is very obvious and the knowledge combined with a passion for animals will quickly put you at ease with this great addition to our host community.
Dan and Jess were great. They were very accommodating to our schedule and Bentley had a great time!
Dan and Jess were excellent caretakers of our two precious pups.
Dan & Jess were lovely.... Maisie loved staying with them for both daycare and an overnight stay. They sent me pictures during the stay, which I love to to receive so I can see how things are going when I cannot be there. They were great and I would not hesitate to recommend their care!
Dan and Jess were great! Kaia did not want to leave.
Everything went very well and we would like to use Jess and Dan again in the future
Dan is great! He has been walking our dog for a couple of weeks now, and we are very happy to have someone so reliable and trustworthy. He always lets me know when he's arrived and how the walk goes. Our dog, Tomato, seems very happy and well taken care of. We couldn't be more appreciative :-D
Dan and Jess are great. Highly recommended. They love doggies and really care about them. They have taking care of CJ, my dog, twice and hope they are available next time I'm out of town.
So glad I’ve found Dan and Jess. They are great with dogs. CJ, my dog, doesn’t like guys; however, the moment he met Dan CJ got very comfortable.

Dan is always around and available. Very easy to communicate with.

I highly recommend Dan and Jess, and will definitely leave CJ with them again.
Dan & Jess were terrific hosts to our pup, Burt, over the long weekend. Was glad to see how happy he seemed when I dropped him off and picked him up several days later. They kept us posted with pics and updates, were mindful of his interactions with other dogs, and helped us navigate around our flight times stress-free by being very flexible. Knowing that they truly enjoyed Burt's company makes us very comfortable using them again in the future!
Great. Will use again.
Dan and his girlfriend were great with our puppy! They were very flexible with our last minute reservation and our puppy had a great weekend playing with two other dogs that were there as well. We will absolutely use again :)
Buddy had a great time with Dan & Jess. He was happy to have such nice people watching him and came home in a great mood :)
