About Natalie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My dog, Lucas, and I love having furry friends over to stay with us at our our home, and we'll definitely make sure they feel comfortable, safe and happy while they're with us! :)
I work from home, and Lucas and I are nearly inseparable so he is generally with me all the time. (If you see a blue Prius rolling around town with a mini poodle whose curls are bouncing in the wind near the window - that's us! Say hi!)
We go to Elysian, Griffith and other surrounding parks daily so Lucas, and any pals that might join us, get to roll through grass, sniff around, and get a good amount of time out in nature.
At home we have a large, secured veritable jungle of a yard and outdoor area that wraps around the property - which is entirely enclosed so your dogs may go potty and roam at their leisure, with full access outdoors; there's a dog door that grants this freedom or the entry door is typically wide open if I don't have the A/C going.
The property's surrounding fencing was built high and there are also coyote rollers and other measures in place that have made the yard safe for Lucas for all of his 11 years.
Dogs will never be left unsupervised in the heat, and there is A/C inside to keep them cool. :)
We spend a fair amount of time outdoors so flea meds or flea collar are a requirement.

All that aside, I send photos daily, and I'm always available should you need to contact me for whatever reason! Most importantly I strive to make sure fur-guests are happy and feel at home, instead of sitting around just missing their parent(s).
Simply because I know that's the kind of care and hosting style I appreciate having for my dog Lucas. Happy pups = happy home.

~~~ Compatibility info ~~~
Lucas is a welcoming, very sweet and well mannered boy of 11 years. He's an outdoorsman who keeps active but is also a laid back kind of pup.

Safety and comfort for my own dog, and any fur-guest we have with us is of the utmost concern for me, so please find below some of the reasons why a potential guest might not be a suitable fit.

- Dogs with aggressive behavior toward other dogs cannot be accepted.
- While I do adore puppies, I do not accept reservations for pups under 2.5 years.
- Dogs with uncontrollable destructive behavior, including but not limited to chewing, marking indoors, etc. cannot accommodated. However, if the behavior is exclusive to being left alone exceptions can be made since dogs will not be left alone often, and bringing a crate is suggested for use if need be.

***Please do note that reservation rates cover a 24 hour period, though I do offer a few hours grace period as a courtesy. Anything beyond the grace period's couple hours will have a partial 'daycare' charge applied.

Natalie is an amazing host who clearly cares about dogs. Our pups looked like they were having so much fun, we were afraid they wouldn't want to come home at the end of their vacation! She listened attentively to the details we left, was patient with our anxiety about leaving our dogs with someone for the first time and she seemed to get a feel for our dogs' personalities right away. Not only was she great with our dogs, but she also communicated with us on a regular basis and was flexible with drop-off and pick-up. A great experience for us and our dogs!
Natalie was awesome. So great with our dog and us! She was prompt getting back to me initially which I appreciated. My girlfriend and I met Natalie and her dog, Lucas, ahead of leaving town, to see if they'd be a good match for our dog. They were both as nice and sweet as could be. The home was clean and air conditioned. Our dog got along with Lucas really well too. So we knew we were leaving our pup in good hands for the weekend. While gone she sent us reports and incredibly cute photos of our dog on walks, playing, and looking very happy. It was comforting to have that type of communication. I recommend Natalie very highly. She's very caring and a good friend to the dog children of this world.
Natalie was amazing! She was extremely accommodating and caring - she's everything you could possibly want in a sitter AND MORE!!! Our boys had the best time! In fact, they seemed depressed about being back home, lol! We will certainly be calling Natalie again the next time we go out!
Lily loves staying with Natalie and her adorable pup Lucas. I recommend her to all!
Natalie was fantastic. So easy to communicate with, caring with my dog Dottie, and sent tons of great photos and videos during Dottie's stay. I will definitely book again when we travel in the future. Highly recommend :)
Natalie was great and I would definitely have Bella stay with her again.
Natalie was a great host!! Her property is really beautiful and provides for an amazing adventure for the pups. I know my dog, Larry, must have had a ton of fun running around all day with Natalie's dog Lucas. She also took them on a bunch of walks and hikes to different parks. I loved getting her picture updates everyday. Really great experience. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Over-and-above helpful! Our dog had the best stay. Loved the photo and video up dates and great communication. Wonderful dog heaven backyard. Thanks Natalie!
Natalie is amazing!! I'm so glad I found her. She was extremely flexible and accommodating with my schedule. She also took lots of pictures and has a large gorgeous property where Daisy loved to roam around and play with Natalie's dog Lucas. Daisy was so happy and tired after her visit. Highly recommended!
What can I say except Natalie is th greatest!! My dog loves her and Lucas!! She always has a great time too!! When I went to pick my dog up, she didn't want to leave!! I have back up dog sitters (friends) in case Natalie isn't available, even ones that will watch my dog for free, but I'd rather pay for my pup to be properly taken care of so I can enjoy my time away...thanks Natalie!! You're the best!!
Natalie was awesome. I was on a 2+ week trip, and this was the first time my dog stayed with a new, unknown dog-sitter, and Natalie made it easy. I got regular pics of my dog having a great time with N's friendly little boy dog Lucas, and everything was swell. Thanks Natalie and DogVacay!
What an amazing host! Not only was her property perfect for my adventurous dog, but she sent me lots of photos every day of their adventures around LA. I can tell she has love for dogs and my dog looked as happy as could be in every photo she sent. I was DEFINITELY have my dog stay with Natalie the next time I need an overnight sitter.

Natalie was a fantastic host! I'm so glad we found her. The space was ideal for Pepper, who loves being outside in the sun and cuddling indoors. The daily walks (and photos) were a treat and Pepper came back to us smelling clean and looking relaxed. I think she had a great time. Thanks Natalie!
Natalie was great. Lots of pictures and very flexible on drop off and pick up times. She has a great property for the little rascals. I would definitely use Natalie again and would recommend anyone looking to use her.
Natalie was great with my pup!! Her and Natalie's dog Lucas got along so well!! She took lots of pictures of my dog's stay, which who doesn't love pictures of their own kid!! Natalie gave my dog lots of exercise so that when we got home, she went right to sleep!!
Thanks again Natalie!!
I ended up using Natalie for a very last minute vacay (our usual sitters were unavailable), and I am very pleased! Natalie has a big yard that the dogs could explore every day, and she took them on lots of walks and hikes. She uploaded tons of adorable pictures on the DogVacay server every day, and she was very available for the few questions I had while we were gone. Natalie was flexible with pick up and drop off times, and had all of their raw food containers washed and packed when we came to pick up the dogs. They also seem happy and calm this morning after picking them up, which is always a good sign that they had a great time. Overall very satisfied and would definitely use Natalie again!
Natalie is wonderful! You could immediately tell she is an animal lover! When my husband and I go out of town, we leave our 2 dogs with Natalie and they get the best treatment and attention from her. She takes them outdoors (hiking, walking, park, etc). She also sends us daily pics of our pups while we are away and it makes being away from our four-legged children a little easier.
Our dog loves going to Natalie's with her beautiful huge yard and absolutely adorable dog, Lucas to play with!
My dog Bagel has a bit of separation anxiety being completely deaf. I could tell she was straight away comfortable with Natalie and Luke and had an awesome time staying with them. We will be using her regularly for daycare. It's great to know that my pup will be in great hands while I am at work. And the yard itself is great for the dogs to explore and play. Paws up from us, highly recommended!
Our pups had such a good time with Natalie and Lucas! Natalie was so sweet and accommodating, and she helped make our travel plans stress-free because we knew we didn't have to worry about our pets. We would definitely recommend Natalie to anyone, and will be happy to have our pups stay with her again in the future!
Natalie was so wonderful! We highly recommend her. She was incredibly kind, thoughtful, and helpful. Our pup loved staying with her, playing with the absolutely adorable Lucas, and exploring the gorgeous yard. We hope to bring Wobbles back soon.
Natalie and Lucas were awesome hosts to Oso. I would highly recommend her service to anyone. She is extremely accommodating and was always easy to reach. She kept our family updated with daily reports and great pictures of Oso and his new friends Lucas and Jack. I will without a doubt use her again.
