About Hedy & Jason

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a Chef & Hairstylist duo with flexible schedules! Someone is almost always home! We live just a few blocks from Allyne Park, and just a short stroll to Fort Mason/Chrissy Field.

We have both grown up with pets our whole lives and now have two miniature dachshunds, Kiki & Leo as our babies. We have experience as foster parents for pups needing homes (Leo is a rescue we were fostering and decided to keep), along with limited training skills (walking on/off-leash, tricks, etc.).

As true animal lovers, we have the utmost compassion and patience with any challenges or needs your dog(s) may have.

We are extremely flexible and accommodating, and believe in consistent communication. Leaving your pups behind while traveling is incredibly stressful on you and your pet and we completely understand the need for updates and reassurance. We are also available to connect via Skype, FaceTime, etc.

We guarantee that your pup will receive 30 minutes of high energy activity per day during their stay (health permitting), ensuring that your pup comes home happy and tired.

We have an SUV that will fit dogs of ALL sizes for fun day hikes and walks on the beach. While we offer daycare, we are very limited in availability for this during the week, so if you're looking for a regular/consistent place to daycare your pup(s) we probably aren't the best fit for that, but feel free to reach out to see if we can help!

Is your pup a cuddler? Great! We are too! Or, does your pup like to keep to themselves? There's plenty of space for that!

If you're looking for a safe and fun place for your pups to stay, we would LOVE to spend some time with them!

Hedy and Jason were great with Moneypenny! She had a great time, and they took great care of her. Would definitely stay with them again.
They were great! Got back a clean, happy, and healthy dog!
Hedy and Jason were incredible! They helped us out when we were very new to the city and eased all anxiety we had. They were so generous to meet with us twice before we left our dog with them overnight and were so thoughtful to send multiple pictures during his stay along with detailed updates and notes. Our sweet dog loved them and came home relaxed and in great spirits. They are so knowledgeable and all around lovely and we look forward to working with them again!

Great experience with Hedy and Jason! They took great care of our geriatric dog. I appreciated that Hedy and Jason sent us updates during his stay, and reached out when they had a question about his health to make sure they were doing everything he needed (they were).

Daycare used to be great for him, but now it exhausts him to the point where he was too tired to eat by the end of his last daycare boarding stay. Not the case with this home boarding, and I'm happy we've found a better option for him.

We will see if Hedy and Jason are free the next time we go out of town.

We feel so lucky to know these guys!
Hedy & Jason were fantastic! They've been doing this for years and are doggy pros! Hedy sent photos daily on our trip and communication was great. We are super excited to book with them again.
Baako loves them :)
Baako loves Hedy and Jason!
Megan came home happy, tired and ready to go back!! Hedy and Jason were great and we would absolutely use them anytime !!!
Great stay once again with H+J!
Great stay! Got a picture of Rita everyday and she seemed to do well hanging out with the two resident pups. Hedy & Jason were easy to communicate and very flexible! Would definitely consider them again.
These guys are the best in SF!
Tucows is a repeat guest with Hedy & Jason and she always seems to have a blast! They even did some training work with her last time and had tips to help her obedience.
Baako absolutely loves to stay with Jason, Hedy, and their pups!
Hedy and Jason were great! Our dog Rainbow seemed so happy with them and I was sent multiple daily photos which I loved. They even brought our dog back to us at our hotel on a very early morning before we had to catch a flight. They will definitely be first on my list if we are back in their area. Thank you Hedy & Jason!

Hedy & Jason are terrific!

We're very particular Puppy Parents and we typically take our little girl, Koa, with us whenever possible. On the few occasions we've had to leave her, Hedy and Jason have done an excellent job taking care of her. They're great at communicating, sending just the right amount of cute pictures and notes to remind us she's being well cared for. And they've been very accommodating when coordinating drop-offs/pick-ups, sometimes early in the morning or late at night.

Everybody wins when we leave Koa with Hedy and Jason... They seem to really enjoy having her, she comes home happy and tired, and we're able to have a relaxing time away knowing she's in good hands.

Hedy and Jason were AMAZING!!!! Hands down the best dog-sitting experience I have ever had. I get so anxious and nervous leaving my dog, and have even been known to fly home early just to see him, but I was so comfortable with Hedy and Jason I was able to 100% enjoy my vacation. I knew my dog was having a blast and was being cared for and loved. They sent a ton of pictures and updates and each one made me smile. Hedy and Jason are so comforting, experienced, and truly the BEST!

Home Away from Home for our baby!

Hedy and Jason are the dream team of doggie care. They were accommodating to the needs of our senior pug and really put us at ease with many photos and updates about our pug's stay with them. They show affection and care, it's almost like our pug went on a mini-vacation!

In all seriousness, we were very happy with our overall communications, including "Meet-n-Greet" and will definitely recommend and rebook them again and again.

Great as always!
Hedy and Jason are great with Miles! He loves his time there. Thanks guys! Ty, Kate and Miles
Jason and Hedy were so accommodating with a last minute booking! They were great with my two dogs the first time that I had to book with them again! They make it easy to leave town knowing your dogs are in great hands.
Repeat customer! Jason & Hedy were more than accomodating to my last minute need for care which I appreciate so very much. They are my first choice for care and I honestly wouldn't want to go to anyone else bc I feel like they understand Henry and his little quirks. I love the pictures they send me, and especially love that they took Henry to the park. Thank you again Jason & Hedy! It is such a gift and a relief that you are there to take such great care of Henry! Would love to try out occasional daycare too if available!

This was our third or fourth time booking with Hedy and Jason, and definitely not our last. Our two dogs had another great stay and came home happy and well-cared for. Thanks again!
Tucows had a wonderful weekend stay with Hedy and Jason and their two mini dachshunds. After a slightly adventurous initial meeting, Jason had Tucows walking by his side as Kiki and Leo followed along. We'd definitely look to board her with them in the future!

They accommodated Kai at the last minute and were sweet with him. They stayed with him the entire time and welcomed him as part of their family. I will be back!
They took such good care of my two dogs over the holidays, one of which is a 'pill' with people/animals she is unfamiliar with. They sent many pictures and updates throughout the stay. They also spoiled the girls rotten with Christmas goodies! I’m so thankful to have found two people I can be comfortable to leave my dogs with. Thank you so much guys! Definitely book with Hedy and Jason, you won’t regret it!

I had the BEST experience having Hedy & Jason care for my little Henry while I was away for the holidays. With Henry being a rescue pup with some anxiety issues, it was reassuring to know that Hedy & Jason understand how to care for rescue pups. Not to mention they seemed to really love Henry and even spoiled him with a cute little Christmas stocking and homemade goodies. I'm so grateful for Jason & Hedy and relieved we found an excellent sitter we can trust. Will definitely use them again!

Hedy and Jason were awesome! They turned out to be my downstairs neighbors and are so great- they even picked up my packages. Charlie enjoyed his stay and settled right in, Hedy kindly allowed Charlie to share their bed. I couldn't have asked for more. Would definitely book again.

Another great stay! Our boys came back happy. Thanks Hedy and Jason!
Dante was happy when I dropped him off and equally happy when I picked him up! Great sitters! :-)
The best, paws down!
Hedy and Jason are great! Made Ellie feel at home from the start, and accommodated her needs well (she's older and has separation anxiety). I was happy to get pics of Ellie while I was away. All in all, Hedy and Jason are great hosts. I've already booked Ellie's next stay!

Hedy and Jason were so great for Ty! They were accommodating, easy to work with, and Ty came home exhausted which is a sign of a great stay. Thanks so much!
Jason and Hedy did a great job with our dog as they always do!!
This was our first time using DogVacay and it was great. Hedy and Jason made it easy to schedule a meet n' greet so they could make sure our two boys were a good fit. Prior to meeting Jason and Hedy we had a hard time finding someone to take two big dogs, but they assured us that our dogs would fit great into their home and routine. Everything went well and we reserved 5 nights. During our trip we received updates and photos. Our boys came home happy and looked like they had been very well cared for. Would definitely recommend Jason and Hedy.

Jason & Hedy always take great care of our dog, they are the best!
Hedy and Jason were fabulous! I got updates of how Dante was doing throughout his stay and he had tons of fun. Dante my only dog so I was happy that he had other puppies to play with while I was on vacation. I picked him up and he's happy and healthy!

We feel very lucky to have been able to leave our beloved Duke with Hedy and Jason. They made him feel right at home! We were gone for ten days and our dog seemed very relaxed and happy when we got back. We'd highly recommend them to watch over your dog!

Hedy and Jason are GREAT!! My pooch came home happy, well fed and even a bit better behaved. They were super responsive, sent pictures regularly and took all my worries away. If they'll take us, we will definitely be going back.
Couldn't be more pleased with Hedy and Jason! They treated George like a king and even taught me several training tips to help better manage his separation anxiety. They were not only very caring and compassionate towards my basset hound, but they took time to teach him some better manners as well.

Hedy & Jason were wonderful! I had to book Riley for the weekend with them last weekend and it was such and pleasant and easy experience. Riley had a blast! It's such a good feeling to know your pup is well taken care of. I would highly recommend Hedy & Jason to anyone!

Hedy and Jason are awesome! They walked our dog on super short notice and did a great job. I highly recommend them!
Hedy and Jason were great. They took the time to meet with us in advance and answer all of our questions. Plus, our dog Barney hurt his foot before our trip and when we sent them questions to make sure they were going to be ok with taking care of Barney in his condition, they were super quick to respond and made us feel really comfortable that they would treat him like one of their own. We are not ones who find it easy to leave our dog with new people and they made us feel as comfortable as we could in that situation.

They were great about uploading pics of Barney throughout our trip and giving updates on his foot. When we got him his foot was in great shape so they must have taken good care of it. Overall we were really happy with them and felt really good about leaving Barney with them. We will definitely be asking them to watch Barney again in the future.

Amazing hosts... even trained Elway to walk on the leash while I was gone!
Hedy and Jason are the best! I have a giant breed dog that many sitters would be intimidated by but Jason and Hedy were the perfect team to take care of my Penelope. Daily picture updates, super flexible with my schedule and so easy to work with. I'm definitely using Jason and Hedy next time I'm out if town! Thanks guys!

Hedy and Jason are the best! They watched my Golden Retriever, Finn, for 5 days (no easy task) and he had a great time!

Hedy and Jason's apartment is a nice clean environment and they kept me updated (without being overbearing) throughout the duration of Finn's stay. They were also extremely flexible with meetup, drop-off and pick up times. I definitely recommend them for anyone looking for a reliable host.

Thank you so much, Hedy and Jason!
