I was worried about finding a place for our cocker Chance to stay...we rescued him 7 years ago and he is always with us. This was the first time leaving him. Over the years we found he had a few behavioral issues and I was a little leary. When I saw Chauntel's name I was so excited...this was the family that fostered our dog from the rescue group. They still live in the same home with a huge backyard. We brought him over and she immediately put us at ease. Honestly, he had the best time! We received updates and short videos while we were gone...every time I saw him he was wagging his tail. He made friends with their pets and children. When we returned to pick him up he greeted us and then returned to play with Chauntel's 2 year old Penelope his new BFF. I am planning a longer trip next time, not sure who will be more excited about the vacation us or him!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Chauntel & Co. for such a wonderful time!
This was my dogs first time EVER going to someone who wasn't family. At first they were apprehensive, but Chauntel and her family made them feel as comfortable as possible. My little Roxi isn't so fond of other dogs, but she seemed to get along with her little Chihuahua just fine! Yogi did pretty well at their place too. I'd recommend them to anyone and if I need someone to watch my fur-babies again I'd definitely go back to them. If i could I'd post the pictures she sent me!
The dogs had a wonderful time!!
We love Chauntel and her family and are so grateful to have found them! Chauntel watched our sweet and sometimes crazy 4-month old puppy over thanksgiving while we were away and we couldn't have imagined a better experience. She is so accommodating to your schedule and really makes you feel comfortable with leaving your precious pet there. We love that she sends pictures to update us on how things are going. Chauntel clearly loves all the visiting pets almost as if they are her own. We are also really thankful that she somehow managed to tire out our endless-energy, mischievous pup :)
simply the best! your dog will be loved and cared for like one of the family!
Everything went well again with Chauntel and her family. I know Lucy had very good care and lots of fun, too. It's a great home and great care!
Chauntel and her family are just great to leave our dog with. They are very dog friendly, and skilled with handling dogs together. Our dog probably has more fun with them than us!
Five Stars! Chauntel took care of my Maggie, a yellow lab, like one of her own. I could not have found a better place for Maggie while I conducted my business in downtown San Fransisco. Her proximity to the airport was an added plus, as I had shuttle duty to perform. She has a fenced back yard so the dogs can play there. Finally, South San Fransisco is a nice, almost "rural" place in itself only minutes from the hubub of downtown San Fran.
Chauntel was AMAZING! We were going out of town for a week and booked her for 9 nights! We've had bad experiences in the past with using dog kennels so I was nervous about leaving our dog, Nero, with someone. She sent me pictures every single day to help ease my mind and show me how happy he was. I loved the idea of leaving him with a family rather than a kennel. He had children to play with and love on him every day and had other doggy friends to play with. He even got to snuggle in bed! When we picked him up he was very happy and I could see that he had a good time! I will definitely only be using Chauntel in the future!!!
Chauntel is a fantastic dog host. Your dog will be adored, pampered, and spoiled. There is not much more I can add to the glowing list of 5-star reviews to Chauntel and her beautiful family.
Awesome stay as usual.
Our dog was so happy, we thought he wouldn't want to come home! Chauntel and her family were welcoming hosts who not only made Copper feel special, she puts us dog parents at ease. We rescued Copper 6 months ago, this was his first time we left him. I was worried he would be anxious as we are his third known home, Maybe he would think he was on home #4?... Chauntel had him feeling safe and secure. We are really happy and looking forward to our next trip when we can leave Copper with her again!
Such a sweet family. I highly recommend Chauntel.
A real dog sitting pro. Family friendly environment well setup to handle guests.
We are so lucky to have found Chauntel and her lovely family.

I was worried about leaving our 11 year old great dane who is kind of high maintenance right now. Their kindness reassured me that Duke was in good care.

Chauntel sends us pictures all the time. Our dog looks so happy with his new found family. I am afraid he won't want to come home anymore.

I would recommend Chauntel without any hesitations.
Chauntel has more Dog and People Karma than anyone I have ever met! She was excellent in every way with us. I especially liked the confidence I had in her after the very first meeting. There was no worry for me leaving our dog there the first time. She kindly sent pictures and information to us even though we were only gone two nights. I highly recommend her!
Buster seemed to have a great time with Chauntel and her family. He got lots of love and attention. I appreciated the photos she sent to us. I also am grateful for Chauntel's flexibility. I had booked the stay a couple of weeks in advance. At the last minute we had to leave a day early - Chauntel took Buster a day early with only hours notice.
Leaving Bella is really difficult for me but I am so happy we found Chauntel and her family to take care of her if I can't bring her somewhere . I have used several differnt people in the past but now that I have found Chauntel I can not imagine leaving her with anyone else. She treats Bella as if she is one of her family and always keeps me updated with messages and photos.
When I have left Bella with other people in the past it took days for her to recover emotionaly after picking her up (she always seemed depressed and mad at me) but now with Chauntel, Bella is happy from start to finish which makes me so happy.
Chauntel and her family are great hosts for our little 4 month old puppy. They have a great home for dogs - free roaming around the house and a big backyard to run and play.

They often host several dogs at once - which concerned me a little, but once I saw how wonderful Chauntel and her adorable kids were with our dog, we were very happy that our dog had so many human and canine playmates.

I would not hesitate to have Chauntel dogsit again! I think that our dog did indeed have a dog vacay at her home!
Amazing!! Our little boston terrier stayed there a full two weeks and had the time of her life. In the past, when boarding, she always lost a few pounds due to nerves, so we were worried about such a long stay, not so with Chauntel, our dog came home happy and healthy. Also, the photo updates so we could see how she was doing were a big comfort.
just great! Chewie had a wonderful time and Chauntel was very responsive. We will definitely be coming back again soon.
I am very pleased with how wonder Chauntel and her family treated my dogs. Her home offered lots of space for my dogs and a nice sized backyard. I would definitely pick Chauntel again if we have a trip.

I wish I could of recieved pictures of my dogs during their stay, like the others that have left reviews but that does not change how much I appreciate her.
We were so glad to have Chauntel's family to host our two dogs. They were well taken care of and very happy. We also very much appreciate Chauntel and her husband for their kindness and flexibility.
Chauntel was a fantastic doggie sitter for my Chai, she sent me pictures of how he was doing and was very great to work with!
Chauntel and her family were wonderful hosts as always! My dog got really excited as we pulled up to their house - he knows he's going to have fun and get lots of snuggles. They were also accomodating with my last minute change of plans which was much appreciated. It's so convenient having them near the airport - easy drop off and pick up.
We've taken our dog to "the family zoo" a handful of times now and are always so happy. They send us pictures and give our little guy lots of love.
Chauntel and Gerardo were super flexible and easy going doggy guardians for Elby. Their house was very clean, but they made my dirty little Elby feel right at home from the moment she walked in, and even put her stinky blankie on their couch to make her feel comfortable. I left Elby with her new friends just moments after meeting them, and, surprisingly, Elby didn't seem nervous at all about being left with near strangers. Their house has baby gates and different areas so there was never any worry about there being another dog she wouldn't get along with (Elby is a bit of a crotchety grandma these days, but still wants to be the boss).

I felt really bad because my flight was delayed on Easter Sunday. I was able to arrange for a friend to pick Elby up a bit later than I initially agreed upon, but much earlier than I would have been able to get there myself. Chauntel was extremely accommodating, and I can't thank her enough for taking such good care of my baby. My friend had the same good impression that I did when she picked Elby up, and wanted to know how I found her:)

When Elby and I were finally reunited, her reaction were as if we had been separated for just a few hours, and not for the five days that it actually was.
They always make our girl feel at home. I think she thinks she IS at home when she's over there, because her "people" there are as kind and loving to her as we are at home! It allows us to leave without worry. Great job!!!
I was able to book with this family at the very last minute when I was going on an extended trip to visit family across the country. My dog loved it here! They love dogs and my dog felt right at home. They also really helped me out by letting me book with them at the last minute.
Remy stayed with Chauntel and Gerardo's family for 6 evenings and I'm pretty sure she loved it. She came home and snored her way through the rest of the night which is a great sign that she got plenty of exercise and play time. They have a lovely family, a really cute house, and a good sized yard. Pictures were emailed over with a quick note to let us know how Remy was doing while we were away. We had a great experience and would definitely recommend them. Thanks for being such wonderful hosts for my furry best friend!
I left Loki with Chauntel for his first extended stay away from home. I was nervous, because he is still only a puppy and was worried that he might have been a handful after being away from us for so long. After the meet and greet, it was clear that her home was comfortable with many different dogs and their needs. When I picked Loki up after our vacation, he was thrilled to see me, which I was happy with, because I think he would have been perfectly fine staying there for longer!
Chauntel was extremely responsive and helped us out on short notice. Dottie had a great time and was totally pooped when she got home!
Chauntel and her husband were very great hosts for Brinn. They are very good at communicating and it seemed like Brinn liked it too. I would definitely recommend!
I've found a new home away from home for my puppy and it's with Chauntel. We did a meet and greet and I felt very comfortable leaving my baby with Chauntel and her husband. They are very kind and friendly and have a lot of experience. They have a nice home and adorable kids. I know they took very good care of my little one. When I picked her up she was completely exhausted from playing with all the other dogs.
We had a wonderful experience with Chauntel and her husband Gerardo. They had a big yard with several other dogs and I felt completely comfortable leaving our beagle there for the weekend. Chauntel texted me pictures every day, which was a really nice touch. I will definitely be hitting them up again next time!
