About Anita

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
ALL BREEDS ARE WELCOME
We have a house with a dog-friendly yard, and a friendly 9 year old Fawn Doberman, named Bella. She gets along with all breeds if they are well behaved and balanced. If not, she will try to correct their issues in a dog-motherly way. She loves the small ones, she will protect and play with them herself to be sure they are safe.

MY FAMILY
I live with my daughter and 2 grandkids (22 and 18 year old) We all are engaged in our guest dogs and if I have to leave the house there is always someone here to give them company, watch them and play with them.

MEET 'N GREET (MNG) FIRST FOR NEW GUESTS
Before booking a new guest I always suggest a MNG first, so we know that our dogs like each other and will have the best experience we can offer.

PAPERWORK
You can either bring it or send it by email to: anitathuna@gmail.com. It is always nice to know your guests and their habits, it's ok with both the bad and good ones :)

AVOID THE DOORBELL- SEND ME A TXT
Avoid ring the bell.........instead, send me a txt or call me so I can meet you and your pup outside first if needed, everybody usually calms down in a few minutes and that's a better experience for everyone.

PICTURE TIME
I am retired and a part time photographer.....you will get updates with pictures on a regular basis while you are away.......and maybe even a portrait, if your dog isn't too camera shy :)

FUN TIME
Playtime every day. No one will get bored in this house.

DROP OFF and PICK UP
It is important for me to know when you plan to drop- off and pick -up your pup. Not only for the cost of the stay, but also to be able to plan for new guests.

BOARDING TIME
Drop off and pickup time for 1 night boarding is 24 hours.
Daycare is 8 hours
I'm flexible and a couple of extra hours is fine.....but if more than that, there will be an extra daycare cost added of $10-$30 depending on pickup time.

INSTAGRAM, TWITTER AND FACEBOOK
You will find me on all 3 with the handle @anitathuna

FINALLY.....
Bella and I are looking forward to meet you and your pup. A great stay is when we all are happy. I'll make that happen with a little bit of your help :)

Best from
Anita and Bella

Anita was fabulous in caring for our beagle. It was only a short stay, but Anita sent photos of "Minnie" and updates while we were away. We will definitely consider Anita again.
Lola has such a great time with Anita she gets excited now when we start packing bags! Highly recommended!
Anita and her daughter are so good to my Brooklyn I never worry when she is there.
Anita is wonderful
Anita is a true blessing! Our puppy couldn't have possibly been in a better home while we were out of town. We would recommend Anita hands down for anyone reluctant to leave their precious puppy. This was an amazing experience for us and we look forward to future day, and boarding with Anita!

So thankful to leave our little girl Bella in such good hands! There was only BIG dogs there when she arrived and she still felt so comfortable and "Big Bella" that lives here took care of her as soon as she got there. I would recommend this dog vacation stay to anyone!! ❤️❤️❤️ Thanks again!!!! From :
Bella Conboy's family

Anita (and her family) were great!! Never having boarded our dog, we were worried. But she treated our dog, Kaya, like her own. Her Doberman, Ella, was such a sweetheart, too. Kaya came home exhausted and actually seemed to miss her new friends.
Anita was so good at texting updates, photos and videos. It was so comforting to know our dog was in good hands. Our family highly recommends her to anybody.

If we could give Anita 10 stars we would. She is simply amazing. So amazing that we left our much loved 5 month old puppy with her for 3 weeks! We got DAILY updates with photos and video clips of our puppy having the BEST time. She got such invaluable socialization training at Anita's and so much love and care. We HIGHLY recommend Anita even to the pickest of dog parents.

Anita- thank you so much for your amazing care of Bella and Ollie!
The best!
Anita is caring and knowledgeable. The house and yard is perfectly set up for dogs. Clean and organized too. I feel very comfortable leaving my pup with Anita and will be a repeat customer.
Anita was so friendly and accommodating all the way around. Her home has a nice big back yard for the dogs to freely run around. She even sent me pictures during my vacation along with updates as to how my dog was getting along.
Anita is absolutely great, this is the second time she has watched my dog for me and both times I have been able to relax while away knowing that my dog is in good hands. She is an attentive communicator, always responding quickly and providing me updates on my dog while I'm away. She has also been very flexible and accommodating to my schedule. I am glad that I have found such a reliable option for when I need a dog sitter. Thanks!

Anita was a sweetheart! It was our first visit and she made us and Cooper (our very shy dog) comfortable sending pictures of him each day and short updates on how he was learning to fit in. I would definitely recommend Anita to anyone looking for a loving vacay home.

Anita is wonderful with dogs and her home is so lovely-a perfect set up for the dogs!! Bella is also a great hostess! Anita communicates quickly and thoroughly. I feel lucky to have found her!!
This was the first time I used DogVacay and selected Anita. Anita has a gentle Doberman. This was the first time I left my dog, Boodie, in a home with dogs for boarding for 4 days and 3 nights. I was worried at whether or not my dog Boodie would get along with other dogs.

Boodie and Bella got along fine. It was a relief to know Boodie was around people and dogs all day and had a large yard to hang out in. So much better that being boarded in a kennel.

I plan to book again with Anita. You can tell she loves dogs. Your dog will be well cared for.

Anita had one spot available and we had 2 dobies that needed a dogsitter. Anita was flexible and asked us to bring both to the meet-n-greet and to meet the other dog that took the 2nd to the last spot. Also another dobie. They played during the meet-n-greet and got along with the other dogs. We are so happy that both our dogs were able to play with other dobies and they were happy when we picked them up. We will definitely reach out to Anita again as our next overnight dogsitter.

Anita is an aboslute Gem! This was the first time leaving our 8.5 month old Dobie with Anita. We chose DogVacay based on a recommendation from a friend of ours, after our first experience at a traditional boarding facility raised concern of our puppy being lonely and anxious. Particularly since after picking him up, he had lost his voice from barking at night out of fear and sadness.

Anita provided all of the comforts of home to our puppy. Her beautiful Dobie "Bella" instantly provided a warm introduction to our puppy Romy, and they hit it off immediately! Our "meet and greet" session at Anita's lovely home was truly a big relief for us. After we observed how happy our puppy was, we immediately realized that we had nothing to worry about while being out of town for 2.5 days.

Anita is also an amazing dog expert. She truly has an incredible talent for taking care of all life forms. Your precious dog will really be on vacation while under Anitas care. She also was very kind enough to share with us occassional photos of our puppy while playing, at rest, etc. We really love our puppy, and Anita also showed him so much love, that we never worried about him being anxious or sad while we were away.

We highly recommend Anita, and hope you are able to utilize her services soon. She is magnificent!

Kindly,

V&N Lange

This was the longest period of time I've ever left Cleo. Anita put me at ease immediately. Our Meet & Greet was like visiting with friends and Cleo was comfortable and welcomed into the home right away by their resident canine, Bella. I've now used Anita for a second trip, too. Ready to book my third with her as well because I can tell Cleo feels relaxed and happy to be in her home when I'm away. Great experience!

Anita is amazing and very knowledgeable about dogs. She is flexible and very kind. I believe that my dog Maya was in very good hands and I hope Anita will be available to watch her in the future.
What a wonderful experience! Our dog is elderly and is almost blind and also takes a few medications so we were nervous about finding the right home. We called a couple of other places and were becoming discouraged when someone recommended I try DogVacay. We found Anita and when we met her at the meet and greet we knew our dog would be in good hands. We received updates with pictures and when we picked him up it was obvious he had been well taken care of. We have a longer vacation coming up and we're relieved that we already know where our dog will be.

Great all be using again
Anita is amazing! My husband and I left our two rescue dogs in her hands for the long day and she was wonderful to them. One of rescue dogs didn't behave well and Anita was an angel about it! We are so grateful for her! Her home and yard are truly lovely and your pup would be lucky to stay with her.

This was our first time leaving our rescue and we wanted a single story as she is elderly and has a front leg that can buckle. Anita is very sweet and loving and sent us updates and photos so we felt comfortable that all was well.
Anita loved our dog, Lady as if she were her own. Lady was excited to see me, but I could tell she was well cared for. Anita sent me pictures of Lady throughout our absence and that alone left me feeling comfortable. Lady had fun with the other dogs and was able to sleep in the house, which is what she was use to. Anita is kind, loving and caring. We are so thankful for her and intend to have her care for our Lady again.
Thank you Anita….

Anita and Bella were the most amazing hosts to our pup, Cayman! This was my first time leaving him for an extended amount of time and I never worried about him once. Anita filled me in with updates while I was gone and took AMAZING pictures of Cayman, during his stay, that she graciously shared with me upon my return. Cayman will for sure be visiting them again!! :)

So pleased with Anita and with dogvacay after my first experience. My German shepherd & I were both graciously welcomed by Anita & her sweet dog, Bella. We will be repeat customers!
Always while on vacation, a nagging worry about the dog stuck in boarding, frequently intrudes on the rest and relaxation. Not this time! I was able to fully relax knowing that Bingo is having the time of his life--playing, getting treats, making friends--at Anita's house. We are so grateful to have found her.

Anita and Bella (her Doberman) are GREAT hosts. This is the first time we have ever had to leave our 2 dogs with anyone other than family. We would absolutely feel comfortable leaving our babies with Anita at any time. Knowing this was the first time I have had to leave them, and how nervous I was, she was extremely accommodating. Sent me updates/statuses/pictures daily of how they were doing; loved and appreciated it so much. Really brought a great deal of comfort over me so I could actually enjoy my vacation on not thinking or worrying about them. Our dogs came back after having a fun time just purely exhausted. It is great to know that we have someone close by that we trust if we want to book another vacation that we are not allowed to take our dogs with us on again.

Great!
This is the third time I left my two elderly golden retrievers with Anita. I couldn't ask for a better home-away-from-home for them. Anita is an experienced dog owner herself and my dogs love her dog Bella. Anita has a good sized backyard which is completely fenced so the dogs can wander around throughout the day. Her home has plenty of space for large dogs and is always immaculate. Best of all, there is always someone home with the dogs.

Lola had a great time!
Our dog has had a great stay several times with Anita. This last time she was excited to see her again. We like the fact that our dog was excited to see her again.
My dog really enjoyed staying with Anita she really knows how to take care of dogs and we will definitely use her again!
Our dog was very happy at Anita's. Anita has a dog friendly environment and we would highly recommend her.
Chester who is a black lab loved Anita!
We have used different sitters with Dogvacay over the last four years and I think Anita and Anita house is the happiest and most comfortable Chester has been yet.
Don't worry about Anita's Doberman, Bella, she is a sweetheart!

Anita is a great host. Our dog came back very happy. Highly recommend this host.
Anita has a nice warm, calm way about her that makes you and your dog feel at home.
I don't think I can stress the importance of having someone care for our dog as if it was her own... We have been so impressed by the communication and pictures that we receive when Major is in the care of Mrs Anita and her family. We would not leave Major with anyone else. We are so grateful to have met this dog loving family!

Second stay.

Our Shepherd enjoyed her overnight stay as well as a day care day with Anita and her family. It is obvious that she and her family love their canine guests just as much as they love their own fur kid Bella. A nice home and backyard for the pups to play and relax.

Anita is firm when needed and so pups don't walk over her. We will be there again.

Anita is the sweetest lady ever! Our pups had a wonderful time! I could tell because they both fell asleep 5 minutes into the car ride home. She has it set up so they can go in and at out at their leisure and has a great backyard for them to get all their sillies out with the help of her dog, Bella. Anita is an amazing photographer and took some keepsake photographs of our girls! I got to see some photos of them playing and I don't think our dogs were homesick at all. far too busy getting loved and playing! The only negative I can really say is that your dogs will probably be depressed after coming home from their vacation with Anita. I think the dogs had an even more fun and relaxing vacation with her than we did while we were gone! They were spoiled rotten in all the good ways. Thank you Anita! We will be seeing you again!

We couldn't have found a better host for our Jack Russell Terrier, Buzz! Anita handled each of his little quirks without complaint. We received pictures each day showing how much fun he was having. This put us at ease and allowed us to fully enjoy our vacation. Her dog, Bella, was an absolute sweetheart with Buzz. If you live in or around Orange County, California, I highly recommend Anita for your dog, big or small!

Lola was well-cared for as usual!
While our plans changed last minute and we could not stay with Anita, she is a most charming and gracious hostess. We shall look forward to a doggie vacay with Anita in the near future!
Anita is GREAT. Charlie is completely comfortable there and gets excited once he knows he's going. He's smitten with Bella and they play & sleep together. I feel safe leaving Charlie with Anita because her house is secure, they're diligent about the front door, there isn't any chaos, and the place is spotless. She loves on Charlie and the photo updates are priceless (she should be a pro-photographer! :) I couldn't ask for a better host. Fast, easy communication, would definitely recommend; even though I'd like to keep her to myself!

We are very pleased with the care our Doberman received from Mrs Anita and her family. The daily pictures and comments eased our worries as we had never been without our Service Dog before. We highly recommend Mrs Anita because she treated our dog as if he was her own. Her family members walked him daily and played with him often. We will definitely seek to have Mrs Anita care for Major again in the near future.

Anita took wonderful care of Lola while we were away. She had a great time, and will enjoy going back as well!!!!
Anita genuinely cared about how my doggie's comfort level with everything. She sent pictures and updates about how he was adapting. Her daughter, teen grandson, and neighbors all loved him up. Her grandson took him on extended walks and they sleep together. I missed him horribly but knew he was happy.

Our usual dog sitter was unavailable so we tried Anita for the weekend. Baylee LOVED her. We will definitely be using her again. She loves dogs and her own, Bella, is a sweetheart. We highly recommend Anita!
