About Anne

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are conveniently located in Santa Cruz, making drop-off and pick-up easy for you. We have a good-sized yard with space to run and play. Our house is pet-friendly and our resident dachshunds (Daisy and Reggie) enjoy meeting new friends.

We live near Westlake Pond and the beach, so we can take your dog on a walk (depending on their preference).

Our home has three dog–lovers, so your pet will never be left for more than 1-2 hours alone. There is pretty much someone around to hang out with all the time. Your dog will be part of our family while you are away, so you don’t have to worry. If you like, we can check in with text/photo updates.

All friendly breeds are welcome!

My dog was very happy! Anne is great.
Anne was great! She always responding to my inquiries promptly and had an overall chill vibe that endeared my pet to her
Our pup warmed up to Anne quickly and seemed right at home when we picked her up. She had plenty of people to keep her company and give her attention.
Anne was very flexible, and it seemed like our dog had a great time.
Anne was great! She was very responsive to communication and asked questions about Loki that definitely showed she cared! She has two tiny weiner dogs that are just the cutest and everyone got along with my gigantic puppy, Loki (80lbs). Loki looked happy, well taken care of and definitely had a lot of excitement and activity at Anne's house. She took him on a walk and then just had him roam her fantastic backyard. Loki slept the whole day and half the day after! She is also really conveniently located.
Loved Anne! Her two dogs got along great with my pups, and she was more than accommodating for all my questions and my last minute reservation. My previous sitter had an emergency and had to cancel only 5 days before I needed her. Anne got back to me very quickly and I confirmed with her by the next day.

Her backyard is a dog heaven! So many plants, a koi pond and a ton of space to run arounI know my dogs loved it there. She even sent me some pictures/updates of the dogs so I could see how they were doing.

Anne really deserves 5 stars, but we had one tiny mishap when I dropped my dogs off (hence only 4 stars). Because her backyard has some many nooks and crannies, her husband did not realize new dogs were over at the house. He opened a side gate as I was backing out of the driveway and my dogs made a run for it! Her house is a block away from a very busy street and one of my dogs ran straight for it. Luckily I was there and both dogs came straight to me when I called them. The whole situation was just a lack of communication, and I don't hold it against Anne, but it still nearly gave me a heart attack. My advice in the future is to just make sure everyone is aware of the new dog(s) when you drop your pup off.

I wholeheartedly recommend Anne to watch your pups in Santa Cruz! d.
We are so thankful for Anne! She cared for Grendel for a week over the holidays. It was such a relief to know that Grendel was getting such great care. Anne has a very lovely, pet-friendly home, which is walking distance to the beach. She sent me a picture of Grendel during her stay and I can tell she was having a great time. I highly recommend Anne!
Anne was great! She even surprised me with pictures of our Boston Terriers while I was away which was fun to see. I will definitely contact her again for any doggie sitting needs! Annie
I was able to leave my dogs for the day while I attended a graduation. They were safe and happy. Thanks!
