About Yanira

Small pups welcome!

We moved, but we're still in beautiful downtown Huntington Beach! We now live in a house with a medium size yard with more room for the doggies. There is also beautiful Lake Park just a block away where we take our furbabies to play everyday.

Here at Surf City Pups your furbaby will be treated like one of the family. Being a dog mom myself I know how important it is to give your dog plenty of attention, exercise, playtime and TLC. I work from home, so your pup will be under constant supervision and get lots of loving and cuddles. You can see in the photos some of the pups that have spent their vacation here.

While your dog is under my care I will text/email you updates and pics. We will go on daily walks and park visits. Dogs are my passion, so trust that your dog is in good hands. I'm very responsible, reliable, honest and trustworthy.

I only accept 1 dog at a time unless they are two pups from the same household. I want to be able to give plenty of attention to all the doggies.


*****Your dog MUST be on a flea medication and must be housebroken. ********************************************

**Please check my calendar for available dates**

Yanira is absolutely wonderful!! Right from the start, you instantly know your pet is going to be loved and cared for like one of the family. Her 2 dogs are very mellow and welcoming to others, which was great for my pooch (who can be stand-off ish in a new setting). The set up she has at home is great: spacious house with lots of toys and beds, plus an enclosed backyard so pets can get sunshine without escaping. It's such a good feeling knowing I have someone I trust to take care of my dog. Yanira is the absolute best!!
Yanira is fantastic! After doing the initial meet-n-greet I knew Sophie would be in great hands with her. Some people are just fellow pet people, and Yanira doesn't disappoint.

The house set up is great for watching dogs, and the two resident pooches are super chill. Since my dog is an only child, she can be picky about who she wants to hang with, and Yanira's dogs are about as cool as they come. Even though Sophie only hung out for the day, I still got plenty of photos and updates (which I love).

When your dog stays here, they are part of the family. Hearing about the other dog guests that have stayed at Yanira's, you can just tell they are loved and well taken care of. I know that when Sophie stays here she will be in great hands, and I actually look forward to letting my dog do a slumber party instead of feeling guilty for leaving her. That's a great feeling-that's when you know you have found awesome people to take care of your dog!
Penny spent both a day visit and overnight with Yanira. We also had a meet and great at the local park by her house prior. Yanira is a natural animal lover, she shares warmth and love and I feel very comfortable leaving Penny with her. I picked Penny up after the overnight stay and I don't think she wanted to leave, she was grinning from ear to ear. Penny is looking forward to another visit soon, and both Yanira's dogs are super friendly and played with Penny which is great.
Amazing as always!!!! I think this was Girs 4th vacation with Yanira and I can't tell you how happy we are to have found her!
2nd time here & Gir our beagle had a blast as was well taken care of again! So extremely grateful we found her!!! One less thing to worry about! Thanks again! We will see you again soon!
Yanira was fabulous! I could tell my dog Bentley had a great time with her, her husband, and 2 dogs. She kept me updated with texts and pictures that truly warmed my heart. She was very accommodating with our meet & greet and reservation. I highly recommend her.
Yanira is an awesome host. We could not have asked for a better experience!
Missy had another fun filled day with Yaniras pups. What a great exhausting day she had. Thanks again.
Missy had a wonderful time on her day visit with Yanira. Her pups were at the groomers, when Missy arrived. Yet she found many toys to play with and enjoyed herself to the point of exhaustion. Yanira sent pictures of her and kept me informed throughout the day. Missy had fun with both Yaniras dogs. She continued to play with them after I returned. I have an overnight scheduled and have no worries that Missy will be well taken care of.
AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING! I almost don't want anyone to know how great she is so she will always be available for my beagle and I! :) She was so sweet with Gir. She had him for almost 2 weeks and there is no way that I would ever board my dog in a kennel. (He is much too spoiled for that) She did everything to keep him in his normal routine...walks, daily medicine, & even allowed him to sleep on her bed! I loved the pictures and update texts I received. I will continue to use her and dog vacay every time I go somewhere without a worry at all. Thank you Yanira!!!
Yanira did a fantastic job with my doggie! She sent me regular pictures and emails throughout his stay with her. She took him on many walks a day and even to the beach on the weekend with her other two dogs. My dog gets chronic eye infections, so taking care of his eyes can be a pain, and she did a wonderful job helping with this. I highly recommend her! I've already booked her for the next time I'll be away.
Shipley loved her time with Yanira! I will definetly use her services again!
Yanira did an absolute wonderful job taking care of my Bella during my short trip. She sent me the sweetest pictures all throughout the weekend and kept me updated on how she was doing. I came to pick Bella up and she looked like she had the time of her life! Thank you so much Yanira! I would recommend her to anyone.
