About Victoria

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Whether your favorite pooch needs some daytime company or a weekend get-away, they'll have a comfortable, cozy place to stay and a friendly little buddy to snuggle with!

I've had dogs of my own for 13 years, and volunteered for 5.5 years as a matchmaker and canine socializer with the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS) before moving west. I've also worked closely with 4 separate dog trainers (in 3 different training styles) to help ease behavior and anxiety issues for foster & rescue pups. My terrier mix, Mara, is a friendly little thing who loves nothing more than naps (well...maybe carrots!) and generally ignores unwanted attention, but she's not afraid to tell a young whippersnapper to mind his/her puppy manners.

I DO REQUIRE A MEET-N-GREET prior to accepting reservations - I want to ensure that your dog is as comfortable as possible while you're gone, and I won't put our pups at risk of an unknown situation. You can find the "Request Meet-n-Greet" link right under the "Request a Reservation" button in the upper right corner of my profile!

Morning and bedtime walks are guaranteed, with potty breaks around lunch and dinner time. I work just a mile from home, so even on weekdays I can pop back for quick outside breaks and snuggly reassurances, Located just down the block from the Irvine Spectrum Center, we have small pooch parks for a little bit of (closely supervised!) off-leash romping, and easy access to the San Diego Creek Canal for great walks.

Bigger, high-energy dogs might find their style a bit cramped at my place - we're pretty chill around here most of the time, without too much inside space to run around. I welcome (and recommend) a crate if you've got one! If your pup likes to run I can help them keep their mileage up. We also play agility games (cones, jumps, a ramp, and a tunnel) and brain games (find-it, puzzles, tricks) to help wear everyone out. A tired dog is a happy dog!

I can't wait to meet with you and your favorite pup(s) - I'm sure we'll all be great friends!

My dog Gracie had a great time while I was away for a week! Victoria is extremely accommodating, loving and responsive when I wanted to check in with my baby girl. I highly recommend her.
