(Bella my 3 lbs Chihuahua ......that is the only dog that lives here.....)

Vacation with peace of mind knowing your pooch will be safe-and-sound… and perhaps a bit overly loved.

I am a Zoology Graduate and worked in Animal care for many years professionally. Everything from Dolphins, manatees, fish, horses, and of course many dogs.

There will always be lots of playing, snacking, and sunbathing, plus we go for daily walks. We work at home so we are here most of the time, and your dog will have constant company with our resident canine, Bella (5-lb mixed breed female).

Lovely CA Cottage in the Burbank , Ca, Private with a large fenced yard. A dog guest is welcomed into our home with sensitivity and individualized personal care as part of the family which includes one loving female Sweet Tea Cup Chihuahua mix. We provide a very secure and lovely experience for each dog. Our guests soon come to know us as their extended family.
We offer our home to young puppies, well-behaved socialized adult and senior dogs used to living indoors. We understand senior dogs, as well as providing very young puppy care. Occasionally we can also visit your dog in your home for walking and play visits. We can care for pet guinea pigs,hamsters.
Many of my friends employ me as their pet sitter. I have watched over and cared for: bunnies, birds, cats, dogs and fish.

Transportation arranged when possible for additional fee.

***We have had experience fostering various breeds, including elderly dogs and those with health issues, and I welcome detailed care instructions and/or special needs cases.

***Even if the calendar says I'm booked for boarding, I'm still available for Meet-n-Greets. Please click on "Ask Host a Question" to message through the page, and we'll work it out.

Heather took very good care of my senior dog for 6 nights. Although happy to see me, Zoe was clearly well taken care of. The pics sent to me comforted my separation anxiety. Thanks Heather.
Heather was great! We even had to extend our trip by one day and she had no problem taking Rosco for the added time on short notice. It was a wonderful experience!
Heather was nice and welcoming but not too sure I want to leave my 8 month old pup with someone who doesn't send me a single update in a 48 hour period. Heather said she sent them and blamed the DogVacay messaging system, I didn't receive anything via text, DogVacay App or the DogVacay phone #. My pup was fine but she could have at least called ONCE with one update.

Heather was great with my little insecure basenji. Zoe was safe and I didn't worry. Thanks
Heather was welcoming and was interested in my dog. She has a sweet demeanor and a quiet approach which I found comforting. Zoe wanted to leave with me, but Heather was ready with a diversionary treat! Her stay was only one night but Heather sent a pic and a sweet comment.

Our pup came back exhausted after her stay at Heather's. Heather was sweet and attentive to Piper's schedule. Would have liked more than one update for an overnight stay, but otherwise the experience was great.
Our dog, Rigby, had a great stay with Heather and her chi, Bella. He loved running around in their huge back yard! When we returned to pick him up, he seemed very well rested and at ease. Heather sent us photo updates throughout Rigby's stay, and I can say without a doubt that Rigby looked to be having a wonderful time! Thanks for your hospitality, Heather and Bella. A+

Heather was very attentive to my pets. Especially my senior dog who needed extra care and attention.
Heather was so flexible with me. I was in a bind, and I need care for my dog from early morning till evening time after 8:30 PM and on a Sunday. She was great with my dog! I would definately use her again.
Nothing but GREAT things to say about Heather! My dog had an awesome time at her place and came home exhausted from all the fun she had :) Heather's knowledgable about dogs and handled an unusual situation with my dog like a pro. I highly recommend her as a dog sitter.

Great experience! My dog didn't even seem to notice when I left!
Heather took care of our little puppy for two nights on a holiday weekend. Couldn't believe that we were able to book a great sitter at such short notice! I left Buttercup knowing that she was in good hands. Heather definitely knows what she's doing. Buttercup was happily tuckered out when we picked her up! I would definitely recommend Heather to anyone looking for a sitter!

Heather is great. I user her every time I need a DogVacay sitter.
Thank you for watching my pups!
Heather is a wonderful, caring dog sitter. I have used her twice in two consecutive weeks, and both were last minute bookings. She was very responsive to our initial meet and greet, and very accommodating with Ally, who is over 15 years old and needs a little extra attention. I would highly recommend her and not hesitate to book with her again.

Heather was there for us last minute when we needed to leave for the weekend. She took great care of our little poodle.
I trust Heather with my dog, which says EVERYTHING. Maisie came back calm and happy.
I love Heather! She watched my little guy Bubs for a few nights when I had to travel out of town. Bubs is very shy and anxious with new people, but Heather was accommodating and understanding. My dog also had a last-minute health issue the night before I dropped him off with Heather, and she was happy to give him the medicine he needed while I was away. A few months later, I needed a dogsitter SUPER last minute, and Heather came to my rescue! Bubs had a great visit sunbathing in her yard and relaxing. THANK YOU HEATHER!

Our dog Chester stayed with Heather and Bella for a week and had a great time. She sent videos and pictures of his vacay. Heather took great care of him, we highly recommend her!
Heather was able to accommodate my two Yorkies and my daughter's Yorkie when our original plans fell through for overnight boarding on the night of her wedding. To say that we were stressed is an understatement but Heather was a lifesaver and, when we picked up our puppies the next day, they were calm and happy! Thanks so much for your patience and understanding, Heather!

We love Heather! Our pup always gets excited when we pull up and comes home exhausted from all the fun. Heather makes it just so easy and guilt free.
Heather was awesome. She sent me a picture during the dog's visit to soothe my nerves. Dogs seemed happy when I picked them up. That is all that any dog owner could every wish for. Happy Dogs= Happy Owner
Heather was great! Scraps loved being there and had lots of fun. He cant wait to go back!
Heather was so wonderful to agree to sit with our dog last minute and was very patient with the pick up and drop off times. Our pup came back happy, full of excitement and seemed to have enjoyed her day.:)
Heather was great. The dogs had a blast and Heather was super nice as well.
Heather was very nice a made a reservation with a very short notice and she still took our reservation, thank you Heather
Heather was great! Our dog had such a great time running around at her house, and Heather sent photo updates of the great time she was having. Absolutely would have Penny stay with Heather again!
Our dogs enjoy staying at Heather's. They get a private room and access to a large backyard. Heather is also very accommodating. I highly recommend her.
We love Heather! Our pup was so excited when we pulled up for her second stay, she couldn't wait to get inside. Heather's update texts are always so helpful and kind which makes it so easy to head out of town.
Terrific as always! My dogs adore her
Our dogs had a wonderful weekend with Heather-- a welcoming, kind host! Thank you Heather for accommodating us on such short notice!
"She allows me to stand outside, bark at nothing and she doesn't get mad. I also get my own room!" -Woo Cockapoo
Our dog loves her
We love Heather! She was great, my dog is a senior and I think Heather is the best dog sitter we've ever had. I felt safe knowing that she is home all the time keeping an eye on her and always sending me photos to keep my mind at ease. I give her 2 paws up!

Heather is awesome. My pup can be a handful and she handled him well. He got lots of love, was well cared for... I recommend her highly!
Heather did a great job with our dogs both times we sat them with her.
This was the third time my dogs have stayed with Heather. It is because she is terrific with them and she's really easy to get along
with. They come home happy and calm. She has a large,secure back yard that they love to run and play in. It's a perfect arrangement!

This was their second visit, and it was just as good as
their first. They are totally comfortable there,with a large back
yard to run around in,and being able to come in and out as they need.
They have a canine friend in her teacup chihuahua,Bella.

Heather was great! She happily accepted my last minute booking and took such great care of my Whippet, Isabel. Will definitely use her again in the future!
My dogs had a wonderful time. They played in her walled in yard, and just relaxed. She has a little teacup chihuahua,and they all had a great time together.
