About Monica

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live a block away from Santa Teresa park which has wonderful walking trails that your dog will love.

I am also a nurse and can administer medications and treatments of any kind to your dog. I have 14 years of caring for elderly and special needs dogs.

We have a front yard, covered front porch and a backyard with a deck and lawn which your dog will have access to anytime.

Our three chickens cannot wait to see their new canine companion frolicking in our backyard.
I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

Timo had a great time hanging out and going on walks with Monica!
She is very nice and understanding, and her updates are great, not just pictures but actually letting us know how Timo and the other dogs were doing.
We will definitely use her again!
Thanks Monica!

Monica is THE BEST! She was very friendly and patient with me about schedule changes and kept me informed throughout the day with how my pup was doing. She kept my pup engaged when it was just her and kept a watchful eye over playtime when there were other pups over. Thanks for taking such good care of my girl, Monica!

Monica was wonderful with my sweet but active pit bull, she has a wonderful and loving environment!
This was my first time using Monica (after a short meet & greet a few weeks before), and she was awesome. My wife went into labor early, and Monica was able to last-minute accommodate my dog. She updated us with emails and photos, and made the whole process so smooth. We will definitely let Kobi stay with her again!

Monica is our favorite! Our dog always have a great time staying with her!
Monica's emails complete with pictures quickly made us realize that our dog, Ricky, was having a great time and put our minds completely at ease. We were so happy with the care he received and have already booked his next stay!
Monica is fantastic. I absolutely enjoyed the email updates that she provides everyday about our dog Kona. The updates gave me and my fiancé a peace of mind and comfort always knowing how Kona was doing and interacting with other dogs.

I would definitely book another dogvacay with Monica as she was detailed of knowing our dog Kona and his habits, eating times, allergies, etc. I think it shows that she clearly cares about the dogs.

Great care for our pups! Monica was so welcoming, and accommodating. She took them both for a nice hike as well. We will be back! Thank you Monica!
Monica was amazing, she shared daily updates with such a detail that made our puppy feel close to us. She managed other dogs really well and kept them separate when needed.
Loves dogs, (even our Parker!), communicates daily, sends great pictures, and was our hidden blessing for our trip East for a funeral. She has the patience of a saint! We will use her for the future needs.
Everything was excellent with our Pippy's stay. Monica is the best!
Monica was wonderful, once again! River was so excited to see Monica when we dropped her off. We forgot River's bed, so Monica just made one for her out of cozy blankets. We could see that River was well-cared for in our daily updates. We'll be sending River off to Monica the next time we go away on vacation!

Luna goes to Monica for daycare once a week. I'm so happy with how it's working out! In addition to getting at least one long walk a day, Luna benefits from meeting and interacting with one to three different dogs each week. Luna doesn't do well when with a lot of dogs at once, so this is perfect. She also gets to spend plenty of time both indoors and outdoors.

Monica always sends an e-mail with pictures and details about how Luna's day is going. Having Luna at Monica's is a positive experience for Luna and for me!

Monica took care of our dog for 8 days while we were on vacation. We got daily e-mail updates with photos of our dog playing with the other dogs or on walks. Nana enjoyed her stay with Monica and making new friends at her house. We plan to use Monica for all our dog sitting needs in the future.

We've had Monica take care of our dog several times. We trust her and her judgement and she is really good at sending us photos and general updates. Since Emmalou was there for so long, and Monica took her on a lot of walks, Emmalou now demands that WE take her on walks and WE are now getting healthier as well! We will be taking another fairly long trip soon and hope that Monica will take Emmalou back. Her service is so much better than leaving Emmalou at a kennel.

Monica is an excellent dog sitter. She is very accommodating. Our dogs were well taken care of and we were updated on their behaviors on a daily basis. One of our dogs has to take insulin twice a day and Monica handled it like the true professional that she is. We finally found a second home for our dogs. We highly recommend her services!

Monica is the best! We feel completely comfortable leaving Sadie in her care. Sadie comes home wagging her tail, well fed and happily tired from playing in the hose and hiking in the neighborhood.
Monica is an exceptional host! I am from Orange County and needed to find a superb host in the San Jose area, since my husband and I planned a visit at The Winchester Mystery House. Monica is conveniently located nearby and gladly accommodated my two female dogs.

Upon arrival, Monica met us outside and allowed my girls to interact with the guest dogs that she had under her care. Everyone got along great! Monica updated me thoroughly, throughout my girls stay. Even though, my girls were only at Monica's for a few hours, they seemed to adapt extremely well.

Monica is very professional and most importantly kind and affectionate with all dogs. I immediately received a positive vibe from Monica and her knowledge regarding dogs and dog behavior.

I will not hesitate to book Monica on our next adventures in San Jose, and/or the surrounding areas.

Thank you Monica!

Clemmie had a great time, She got to hang out in the back yard with the chickens, walk around all of the open space and lounge on her bed in the living room.
Monica is Pippy's favorite dog sitter, and she looks forward to staying with her. This time was no exception, she came home in perfect shape, and all tired out from playing with the other dogs that were staying with Monica. it was a perfect experience. I highly recommend Monica.

As usual, Monica was the best. Pippy really enjoys staying with her and the other dogs.
This is our second week-long stay with Monica, and we were very happy with her again, as we anticipated. We got twice daily updates, always with at least 1 photo of what our dog had been up to. There was a rotating crew of dogs coming and going while our dog was with her, and everyone got along great. My dog was smiling in every photo update! Will definitely book with Monica again soon.

My dogs love, love, love their vacays at Monica's. As always, they came back relaxed and happy. I am also relaxed and happy knowing they are well cared for.
Just GREAT. We are planning a 3 week vacation and now feel really comfortable leaving our dog with Monica. Our dog didn't show any signs of stress when we picked her up. We plan on calling on Monica a few more times before our vacation just because we like her.

Our Corgi stayed with Monica for 5 nights and we couldn't be happier. She will be our go-to sitter for when we go on vacation again.
Pippy loves to go to Monica's! It's like a summer camp for her where she can meet new dogs and have a great time. Monica is the best!
She is very caring. She took Kole for long walks, which our dog loves. She also took great care of our dog when he got into a fight with another boarded dog. Nothing serious, but, right away she informed us as well Dog Vacay about it.
This was my first time using dogvacay and Monica. I felt very comfortable leaving my dogs because of Monica and her interaction during the meet & greet meeting. I got daily photos and reasurance that they were doing just fine and I'm sure they were a hand full!

Monica was great. Trotsky had a nice time. :)
This time, Dawn, our dog, stayed for four days at Monica’s place. Dawn had a great time. Monica’s updates with pictures made our vacation even more enjoyable because we knew Dawn was having fun.
Monica is awesome! We have 3 abused dogs and finding a dog sitter have been very challenging. We now found one. Thanks Monica!
Monica is awesome and very good with our husky (Benjamin). She takes pics daily to keep us updated and we love that!
Monica is our go-to dog sitter in San Jose. One of our dogs recently diagnosed with a heart condition needs multiple medication and monitor activity level. Monica had no issues adjusting to the level of care my doggie’s needs. Thank you as always for your care of my two precious kids.

Monica took care of Dawn, our dog, and we could not be more pleased by how well she cared for our dog. Monica kept sending us pictures and updates regularly. We are happy that finally we have found a place where we can leave Dawn and still we can enjoy vacation!

Monica can easily handles our large Golden Retriever as well as the two little Pomeranians. And she manages to take all three on walks together! She provides a loving home and easy living for our four legged family members. So happy to have her support so we can travel without worry.

Monica was great with my dog. She sent pictures every day and the place was perfect for my dog.
As always my dogs have an enjoyable vacation at Monica's. They usually have one or two additional friends to play with. I am worry free when they go to Monica's.
We had a quick trip we had to do, and Monica was able to watch Pippy just fine. As usual Pippy looks forward to staying with Monica. All we have to say is "Ready to go to Monica's?" and Pippy gets all excited.
This was another great stay for our Pippy. She absolutely loves Monica!
Monica took AMAZING care of our dog while we were on vacation. She was friendly and informative from the moment we met her on our Meet and Greet. She sent daily e-mails with photos of River's activities while we were gone. River truly enjoyed her stay with Monica. We plan to use Monica for all our dog sitting needs.

Monica is the most fabulous doggy host we have ever had! She is kind and caring and so accommodating that she always goes the extra mile to have our pup feel at home.
Monica is great with our high energy dog! Very accomodating and took us in last minute. We've used her multiple times.
Our pooch Pippy got to spend NYE at Monica's and she loved it. There were other dogs there too, and everyone had a great time. In typical fashion, Pippy was worn out the next day, and slept the rest of New Years Day! Five stars to Monica!
Monica is absolutely the best. My dogs love their visits everytime.
I can't say enough about how wonderful and accommodating Monica was for Dodger and our family. She went above and beyond and I cannot thank her enough. I really appreciated the daily emails with pictures showing how much fun our pup was having. Thank you Monica for taking such good care of our boy!

My dogs had a wonderful, but short visit with Monica. As always, the dogs had a fun time. Despite the rains, Monica walked and cleaned them. My dogs always enjoy their visits and come back looking happy and well cared for. Thank you, Monica!!
Our Great Pyrenees, Zeenat, had a very good time during her stay with Monica. Monica is meticulous about providing twice daily updates (with puppy pictures of the walks, hikes, playtime etc.) which is very pleasant and helpful.

We also found Monica to be very accommodating of our changing drop off and pick up times owing to traffic conditions and other reasons.

We would definitely be considering Monica for future boarding/hosting of Zeenat.

Monica was referred to me by a friend and I am so happy that I decided to board my dog with her. She emailed me twice a day with pictures and made sure that I understood that she was available to contact at all times. She has a beautiful home and a huge backyard, more than enough room for playing and running. I will definitely be recommending her and using her services again.

Thanks, Monica!
We had Monica take care of Lexi for a second time. Lexi was excited to come back and made some new dog friends. Monica did a great job of keeping Lexi walking and kept us up to date on her progress. Monica does a great job of taking care of our dog Lexi and her friends!

We got Monica's contact information from a family member who had great things to say about her. We have a Weimaraner who can not be left alone due to his separation anxiety, and with my work day not fair for him to be left alone for 9 hours. The first day I took Orion over Monica had other doggies there. Orion played all day long, came home so tried. The next day I could not get him out of bed when I did he went potty and laid right back down. We always know when Orion loves being at a place because he starts to whine because he happy. The 2nd time we took Orion he was the only dog. So my husband and I were wondering if he would come home tired, with other dog sitter he never does. Orion went on 2 walk/hikes that day and came home super tired that he put himself to bed when we got home! We love Monica a lot she is amazing pet sitter and we highly recommend her! Monica sends us emails through out the day with photos of how he doing! When he is the only dog there she still plays with him and makes sure he gets the love he needs. We have always wanted to have a petsitter who would just love him and play with him when we were at work and we found her! Thank You

Pippy's stay with Monica was excellent. Pippy really enjoys staying with Monica, and is always a happy dog when she gets picked up.
Monica was great with Lexi. She got plenty of great walks in the hills near her house. Monica kept us up to date every day with great pictures and email about Lexi's stay. She did a great job taking care of our dog.
Monica was the sweetest host ever! She was so caring and very wonderful to Ellie and we were so pleased with how accommodating she was with our little girl.
"Happy" REALLY enjoyed his stay at Monica's. I am so thankful to have found her. Monica is nothing short of wonderful. I received updates with pics on a daily basis. This really helped me since I was missing him so much! They were informative and humorous. I will DEFINITELY be utilizing her service again! Thanks Monica!!! I would recommend (already have) her to anyone in need of a warm, friendly home while you are away.

This was my dogs' second time with Monica. She took them for walks and sent me photos.
This was the first time my dog stayed overnight with a stranger, and also stayed overnight with 2 other dogs. I'll admit I was very nervous about both, but Monica's twice-daily emails and pictures had me convinced my dog was happy as can be. She was smiling in every photo, was going on walks a couple times a day, laying out in the grassy back yard, and she was doing great socializing with the other dogs, and I'm afraid she might miss the other dogs once we get settled in again at home! Zoe the dog is a little bit high maintenance (she's older, and a bit stubborn), but Monica had her eating every meal (I couldn't believe it!), walking on leash with other dogs (that was a first) and she even shared her bed with the others!. I will definitely be scheduling Monica for the next time we have to take a flight somewhere (otherwise our dog always joins us!!!)

Monica took great care of my two dogs on short notice. One is blind and the other quite active so they are a handful together but she took them on walks together and introduced them to the other dog like a pro.
It was the first visit with Monica for our dog Max and I was surprised at how well he did. Max can get very anxious when he is left alone or with strangers but he warmed up to Monica immediately. She has a way with animals. Monica sent pictures and email updates during the day to let us know how Max was doing. Max was smiling and clearly enjoying himself in every picture. We are looking forward to future doggy visits with Monica. So happy to have found a reliable and experienced dog sitter who Max loves.

Our Pippy thinks of Monica as her home away from home. All we have to tell her is that she is going to get to see Monica, and she goes crazy with excitement!

Our only concern is that Monica is so popular that we have to make our reservations well ahead of time to make sure she is available!

If we could give Monica 10 stars we would!

We loved Monica and, more importantly, Sadie loved Monica! She is warm, thoughtful and conscientious.
Getting a photo and an email twice a day from her was so much fun and made us feel confident in our choice of Monica as our first DogVacay host. She was very clued in to our pup's needs and personality.
We would happily choose Monica again to take care of Sadie, and recommend her highly.

We boarded our dog with Monica when we were away on vacation. Monica kept us updated with pictures and I think the dog had as good of time as we did on the cruise. Thanks and looking forward to next time!
This is the third time my dogs have stayed with Monica. They love it. Monica is amazing. My dogs come back happy, like they had a vacation too.
Monica is Pippy's favorite "Home away from Home!"
Once again, had a positive experience with Monica watching Trotsky. She sent pictures every day and Trotsky seemed happy with her. Thanks, Monica!
Our first time leaving Lola away from home. Monica was a great choice. She sent pictures and updates of our happy dog within hours. And then again several times during our absence. We would definitely recommend and use Monica again.
As usual, Monica was great. Pippy is always excited to stay with Monica, and comes away extra happy. I highly recommend Monica for any dog sitting needs.
Monica provided a home away from home for our three scallywags. She sent us daily updates and photos and spoiled them with a lot of attention, walks, and warmed meals. We had a great time on our vacation knowing our dogs were having their own great vacation too.

Monica is Pippy's favorite dog sitter, she can hardly wait to spend time there!
Only needed daycare for a handful of hours, but Monica sent updates of Lucy on a hike, in the yard, on the couch, etc. Loved the emails and wish I could have been there too!

Lucy was tuckered out when we got home so I think Monica did a great job :) Thank you!

Monica is wonderful. My dogs stayed with her twice. Both the times they came back happy, clean and fit. I love the daily email she sends, most days 2 emails, with nice pics of the dogs and little notes on how they are doing. When my dogs are with Monica, I never worry about them when I am away.
Read More...
We used Monica a second time and again she was great! Daily emails, lots of attention & love towards our hyper dog lol
We love Monica! So blessed to find her and her husband. Our dog is super high energy and needs lots of exercise, they took him on bike rides and kept up with his special diet. We lobed the photos and daily email updates. Our dog had a tough time leaving their house!

Monica sent emails early and often, and was overall reliable. This is Trotsky's second stay with her and I can tell by how he reacts to her that she's good people. He'll be back to stay with her!
Monica exceeded my expectations as far as dog sitting goes. She was very easy to contact and also quick to reply.
Monica updated me twice a day, morning and night, and on several occasions mid day too. Her daily e-mails kept my mind at ease and were also very entertaining.
Dog Vacay is exactly what my Abby received. Her own little doggy vacation over at Monicas. The connivence of being located right next to trails gave Abby her own little playground while she was on vacation. Monica's yard was also a ideal size for my baby.
I will definitely be using Monica whenever I need a dog sitter. She definitely earned my trust.

Monica is Awesome! We left our dog with her for a 2 weeks vacation, we got two emails a day with pictures and funny stories about her whereabouts and it seemed like Nala couldn't be happier.

We were torn on recommending Monica as we want to save her just for Nala :-)

As usual, Monica was fantastic. Our Pippy knows her name, and when we tell her that she is going on a sleepover at her house, she gets all excited. Monica has a great bedside manner, and our Pippy just loves to stay there. 5 stars and two thumbs up.

Monica was great! She's takes photos of the dogs and emails along with quick updates. We really enjoy those updates and keeps us closer to our dog while on vacation. Monica was also very flexible and accommodating. Thank you again and Benjamin will want to come again! :)

Monica is great! She works with your schedule for drop off and pick up. She is awesome with the dogs. She keeps them exercised..and our younger dog needs a lot of exercise! We will continue to bring our dogs to Monica whenever we have to go out of town. Our dogs come home happy, healthy and the best of all ...tired from their vacation! Thanks Monica!!

I was very happy with the care that my dog received when she stayed with Monica for the weekend. I was also pleased with the numerous updates and pictures that Monica sent me so that I would be more comfortable during my weekend away. I will be definitely be using Monica again!!

IMonica was very attentive to our dogs' needs and kept us updated (with photos!) throughout the week-long stay. I would recommend Monica to our friends and would not hesitate to call on her in the future.
Monica is always awesome! We will never use anybody else unless Monica is not available.
Monica is amazing! She was highly recommended by a friend and her care of our Charlie went well beyond my expectations. I could not have been more involved or relaxed than I was with Monica's care. She communicated with us daily, sending emails and photos. Our dog has a serious medical condition and she gave his medications 4 times a day without a problem and coaxed him to eat even better than we manage to do at home. I simply cannot praise her enough; she deserves 10 stars!!

Monica M took exceptional care with my newly rescued Ryder and our recently blossoming Itsy.

Monica was attentive to their very different needs, and innovative in solving minor issues making their days easy, just as if they were at home. I appreciate the update that Moncia provided us with each day. Photos of the Ryder and Itsy doing their daily doggie stuff.

We will be very comfortable leaving her in charge of our kids in the future.

Monica has become Pippy & Marcel's home away from home. when we pull up at Monica's house, they are excited to be there, and can hardly wait to go in. They really like being there!
My doggies are my babies. I’ll be taking more vacations knowing my kids are in good hands. Thank you Monica for another wonderful, worry free retreat.
Our two dogs, Marcel and Pippy, really enjoy being at Monica's home. She really takes good care of them, and makes them feel right at home.
Monica is absolute amazing!
We were away for Christmas and New Year's and she took marvelous care of our 5 year old Golden Retriever. We received constant updates and photos which totally made our day.
She has permanent customers with us and a happy pooch raring to go back!

As usual, Monica was an excellent sitter for our JRTs Pippy & Marcel over NYE. This was their second visit with Monica, and both dogs felt right at home away from home. Thanks again for a great experience, and plan on having Monica sit our dogs again.

Chuck had the most amazing 'vacation' ever at Monica's place. She is the best host one can ask for!! We were very thankful when she was able to take Chuck at a week's notice. Chuck went for walks with Monica and other dogs on the mountain trails and we got daily updates (with pictures) of his stay (couldn't have asked for more!) She even sewed his harness that he had chewed and washed his bed :-) We hope Chuck can stay with her again. Thanks Monica!

My two beagle boys enjoyed their little vacation. Monica was very responsive. She sent pictures of them everyday and was available to take my calls. I was relaxed on my 2 day trip, knowing my little boys were well taken care of. Thank you, Monica
Our two Jack Russell Terriers spend this last weekend with Monica, and they absolutely loved it. Monica was great, and has a great bedside manner with our dogs. She took them out on walks and made them feel right at home. She sent us emails on how Pippy and Marcel were doing, and kept us up to date on their antics. We plan on putting Monica at the top of our list for dog sitters in the future, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a qualified and caring dog sitter.

Monica was awesome that sums it up! Our little dog Pete needed a sitter for a week while we visited New York and we found Monica. She took great care of Pete. Monica sent us almost daily updates on Pete with pictures. Pete was very comfortable at Monica's home and he was taken care of very well. Thanks Monica you rock!

Monica is just amazing with our dog. We never worry about him when he is with her. Its a great thing to be able to leave your pet and know he is happy and safe!
After a negative experience at a kennel facility, we thought we'd give dogvacay.com a chance. We are so glad we did and so pleased to have found Monica! She is friendly and accommodating and our year old Golden Retriever, Friday, came home happy and tired after a weekend away. Monica also sent morning and evening emails with great pictures of their hiking adventures.

I was nervous leaving our oversized puppy at someone's house for three nights, but Monica assured me it would be just fine. I received daily pictures of my puppy's mini vacation, and felt very good about the time she spent there. My puppy went on several walks a day. There was also a Chihuahua staying at the same time as my Great Dane, and Monica seemed to have it all under control. Our pup came home happy and tired.

Monica was wonderful! She sent me morning an evening texts with pictures attached letting me know how Harley was doing. I was so relaxed to know that my dog was in such good hands. It was like a doggie vacation for Harley. When I picked her up she was happy to see me, but she also kept going back and forth between Monica and myself for little pets..that's how I know that she liked Monica. I have already booked Harley with Monica for our next vacation! Can't say enough good things abour Monica! Thank you Monica!!

Monica was amazing!!! Both my dogs seemed to have a great time with her - they probably had a better vacation than I did!!

Monica took great care of them - taking them for frequent walks and trips. My dog Tony even went biking with her which I have never tried before!

I got constant updates with pictures in emails and was ensured that the dogs were having a great time.

I am sure the dogs want to hang out with her again soon and I'll be using her services for my next outing.

My husband and I were anxious leaving our dogs for the first time in care of a “stranger” but we now consider Monica our inner circle of dog caregiver. We trust she give very good care and supervision to our dogs because she described to me all my dog’s unique behavior which only can be witnessed by someone who provides excellent attention.

It was clear that Trotsky liked Monica, which was comforting. I liked receiving pictures of him. And Trotsky was lucky enough to spend time with another dog, which helped release energy. He was pretty tired when he came home.
Our 2 year old German Shepherd Charlie stayed with Monica for 2 weeks while we were out of country. Monica updated us with emails and pictures every few days. She and her husband also took Charlie to walk and play. I could tell Charlie had a great time under their care. When I picked up Charlie and told him to get to the car, he ran and waited for me in front of Monica's car :) We are so pleased with this boarding experience. We recommended Monica to our friends who have dogs. Love to board Charlie with Monica again!

Monica took Bella on a last minute notice and was going to let us pick her up at 11:30pm. Our event ran late and she agreed that night to just keep Bella until the morning and we picked her up at 8:30 am the following day. It was so kind as we were stuck in traffic and didn't get home that night until 2AM.
Bella had a great time and got treated to a complimentary breakfast. There was another dog she was also watching and they played well together. We look forward to using Monica in the feature.

Monica thank you for taking care of my puppy.

It was my beagle's first time to be boarded and he had an amazing time with Monica.
He loved to sniff around the backyard and play with the chickens. If you are looking for someone to take care of your dog, Monica is great! She sent me pictures of him and kept me up-to-date on how he was doing. Amazing service all around. Highly recommended.

I have a handicapped corgi (hip dysplasia and degenerative myelopathy) and was worried because it was going to take someone very special to watch him and make him comfortable. Thanks goodness I found Monica! She is very caring and was unfazed by the detailed instructions I left her for his care. She took wonderful care of him and sent pictures and updates and that made me feel so much better about leaving him. Highest recommendation!

Monica was beyond wonderful-great personality, quite experienced with pets, with a very homey environment for a doggie vacation. My dog is on medication and she handled that with ease. We got frequent updates with pictures. She asked questions about my dog (ahead of time) to ensure the trip went well. Basically, she did everything right!

Monica was fantastic with my dog. Flicka is a high energy dog and wants to play constantly. Monica sent several updates with photos of her playing and having fun... and even cuddling up on the couch in the evenings.

Flicka now gets excited at the mention of Monica's name. I can't think of a better endorsement than that.

Our dog loved his stay with Monica. You can tell she is a real dog lover. We got photo updates of all the fun he was having. It was very relaxing to know he was happy and well taken care of while we were away.
Wow! Doggy vacation it is. Mattie enjoyed a fantastic two weeks at Monica's house. We received daily photos of her hiking, watching deer, playing at the ocean. When a minor health issue came up, Monica called us promptly and took appropriate actions quickly. I would recommend this host highly!

Monica and Marvin took such great care of Harvey, when he got home he just slept all day! They have a beautiful home and obviously know a lot about caring for dogs. They are now my go-to dog sitters!
