About Jake

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We Offer Solo-Stays Only! Only one pup at a time so they can get the love and care they deserve!

I am home full-time even while my wife, Tiff, is at work and we love looking after pups and fluffsters of all ages and sizes! We have both lived with dogs our whole lives and frequently dog-sit for friends and family in our townhome in Glendale.

- Home Full-Time!
- Private Back Yard w/ Fence!
- Indoor/Outdoor Access All Day!
- Air Conditioning!
- Solo Days Available!
- Single-Level Home!
- Easy (& Frequent!) Access To Hiking at Griffith Park!
- Flexible Schedule!
- We ADORE dogs!

IMPORTANT - In order to give each pup the love and attention they deserve, we only allow for SOLO STAYS. The only exception is if you have more than one dog and they are used to living with each other.

Our home is all one level, great for older dogs, but there are two steps that lead out to our private, fully fenced and locked back yard. If your pup doesn't do well with steps, the front entrance to our house is level with the ground and we can always go out that way!

We have never met a pup who didn't love romping around in the yard, laying out in the sun, or enjoying a nice breeze on the shaded porch.

A usual day for a dog in our home goes something like this:

Wake up and go out for the first walk of the day. Either a short one around the neighborhood or a hike up in Griffith Park! Get back (and clean off our paws) I settle down in Jake's office while he works. Realize what a beautiful sunny day it is outside and walk out into the fully-fenced private back yard to sun myself for a bit in the grass. Get a bit too warm and move to the shaded porch. It's nice, but I'd really like some company so go back inside to sit with Jake again. Time for his mid-day break so he tosses the B-A-L-L around in the yard for me. Once I'm nice and tired out, Jake goes back to his desk and returns to the drudgery of work. A few rotations of sun/shade/office later and it's time for Tiff to come home! An evening walk or some more active yard time works up an appetite and we all eat dinner together before settling in for the night. I love my humans, but these guys will do just fine!

Why DogVacay?
We just got married and are still settling in and traveling a lot, so we can't get a dog of our own just yet! We love dogs though and our lives are always better when they're around!

Boring Rules and Stuff
Drop-off times are flexible! For day-care services, pick up must be before 7:00pm unless we agree otherwise!
If your dog has aggression issues or needs to show dominance and can't be around other dogs, please let us know before you book!
If your dog has any special needs, phobias, etc, please let us know before booking so we can go over them and make sure we are a good fit!

Jake was very accommodating as my need for a sitter was last minute. He took care of Sazie and his house having a backyard was a major plus for me and her!
Jake was great!
Very flexible with both meet&greet, and with drop off/pickup. Sent me great pix of my little Bella playing, hiking, and lounging happily and comfortably.

Couldn't ask for anything more from someone taking care of my best friend.

Would definitely recommend Jake again. And definitely will be asking him to watch my pup again!

We had a great experience with Jake; I highly recommend him. We got frequent updates and even pictures and video. I will definitely be calling on him the next time we need a dog sitter.
Polly Walnuts came back very happy from her stay with Jake! He has a nice backyard and works from home which Polly was happy about.
Jake and Tiffany were wonderful! Very nice and communicative, and their backyard is literally a dream come true for my dog (he cannot stop raving about it). Will definitely book with them again!
