About Sam

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, we're Sam and Olivia! We live in a spacious four bedroom home in Sherman Oaks with our two pups named Angil and Doug. Our Guest dogs will have free roaming rights throughout the house, and they'll be happy to know that we have an enclosed front yard, back yard, AND a swimming pool! Talk about a complete haven!

We both grew up with dogs, and know how to take care of them. We have been trusted by both friends and family members to watch their dogs while they go on trips. There has never been a situation we couldn't handle!

Both of us work from home, so your dog will be looked after with 24/7 supervision. We are more than happy to keep our Guest dogs company at all times, and we know there's nothing worse than a dog home alone. When any dog comes over for a Vacay, they are a part of our pack and will get the royal treatment.

Sam and Olivia are a great couple who grew up with dogs, and it's very clear that they love them! They have an amazing home in Sherman Oaks with hardwood floors and lots of space. Another reason why this place is doggy heaven is that they have two enclosed yards! The backyard has a swimming pool and chairs to lounge on, and it's a great spot for pups who deserve a lovely getaway. Any Guest dog staying with them will have tons of fun, and they'll also get spoiled with attention 24/7, since Sam and Olivia work from home!
Sam this is KATE and Tucker!
I want to thank both you and Olivia for making this experience not just wonderful for Tucker but so great for me as well. As you're well aware, before tucker's stay with you, we had never been apart for more than a couple hours when he goes to get a bath!

But when I met you and Olivia instantly I knew that the environment of your home, and the fun loving personality that both you and Olivia have in general (but also for dogs) made me feel so comfortable.
I knew that the two of you were the perfect fit for my Tucker!
You certainly did make it easier with the pictures and videos you sent me daily! It assured me that Tucker was doing great.

We will most definitely call you the next time we have a need!!! Thank you so much to both you and Olivia for making it such worry free experience for me. And giving Tucker a clean comfortable fun environment to safely playing while his mom got to play in the beaches of Hawaii!

Kind Regards,
Kate &Tucker
Tucker's first "trial" night went so great he ended up staying 11 more days!!! You guys Rock!
This is our second time leaving our dogs with Sam and Olivia. Just like the first time, everything was great! The dogs had a great time as usual, and there were no problems. We have already booked another visit with them for this fall.
This was our first experience using DogVacay, and it was great in every way. I was a little nervous about contacting Sam since they seemed new to the scene, but several things set my mind at ease:
1--When I first emailed Sam to ask several questions, he responded in just a few hours, AND he answered all of my questions very clearly.
2--When I met him at our meet-n-greet, I got a good vibe from him right away. He's super nice, easy going, and accommodating. Plus, he has a lovely fiance and two great dogs.
3--They have a clean, well-kept, pet-friendly house and a large yard.
So I trusted my gut and booked with him. Turns out my instincts were spot on, and the experience was great. My dogs seemed right at home almost immediately, and one of them became besties with one of their dogs. Sam and Olivia were great about sending us photos and videos of the dogs, and there were no problems whatsoever. I will definitely book with them again!
