About Lucy

I am a full time author who works from home and loves to be outside walking, hiking or playing in our big front yard with my dog and other furry friends.

My own scruffy rescue pup is my life. I've learned, through group classes and training, how to communicate with him and make him feel safe. He is incredibly playful and loves running around in our yard with other dogs!

A typical day at our house involves a few walks and plenty of sunbathing, and we go on at least two hikes per week.

I only board one dog at a time in addition to my own, so you can be sure they get lots of one on one love and attention! For daycare, I host no more than two dogs in addition to my own.

If you're interested in just hikes, it's $25 for an hour with no extra charge for pickup if you're in Venice, Santa Monica, Brentwood or the Palisades. All the dogs always go home happy and totally exhausted.

Lucy and her dog Ernie live in a wonderful, tucked away oasis in Venice. They have a great yard that is fully fenced and plenty of room indoors to play and lay about.

Lucy has roommates who love Ernie and will welcome your buddy into their pack. Your pup will never be at a loss for company with Lucy's work from home schedule or Ernie's added attentiveness.

If you want to ensure that your pooch is staying active then Lucy would be happy to take them on a hike. Having used DogVacay for Ernie, Lucy understands the importance of having a host you can rely on.

This is tough to review, which is why I have postponed it so long. Lucy was very friendly and welcoming during our meet-and-greet, drop off and pick up. Her yard is grassy and shaded. Her shared house was clean and nice. The reason I can't give her a higher rating is because my dog seems quite distressed when she returned from staying with Lucy. She has stayed with two different hosts in the past, bouncing back to her regular routine without missing a beat. Admittedly she is a somewhat sensitive dog, but it was only after her stay at Lucy's home that she was skittish and scared in her own home for several days. It felt like I had to earn back her trust. So, I can't say what happened if anything, but I can recount that this host did not provide adequate comfort and a feeling of security for my small, shy dog.

Tucker had a great daycare stay with Lucy, which included lots of exercise & lounging around in the sun with her cute dog Ernie. She was great about keeping us updated with pictures. Definitely will be booking again.
Lucy is amazing! Our dog, West, LOVED her vacay at Lucy's lovely home in Venice with a fenced-in yard and plenty of dog-friendly toys. Lucy sent us adorable photos throughout the weekend so that we knew West was having a great time. She is clearly a very knowledgeable and responsible dog owner. Lucy's own dog, Ernie, is super sweet and West loved playing with him. Lucy is definitely someone you can trust to show your pooch lots of love and to take great care of him/her while you are away.

Jack LOVED staying with Lucy and Ernie. Lucy is super friendly, responsive and easy going. She had a fantastic property with tons of outdoor front yard play space. In fact, Jack was having so much fun romping around the front yard with Ernie that he barely noticed me leaving! Would absolutely recommend Lucy to anyone looking for a caring dog sitter.

Lucy & Ernie are absolutely the BEST. Huxley's stay with Lucy was my first experience with DogVacay and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Huxley & I met with Ernie & Lucy before the stay to ensure that Huxley would be a good fit for her home. Lucy asked extremely thorough questions regarding Huxley's habits and care preferences to ensure Huxley would be comfortable during his stay. During the stay, Lucy constantly provided me with updates and photos of Huxley, which made me feel more at ease. There is absolutely nothing Lucy could have done better, she was simply fantastic. Huxley will be staying with them again!!

Lucy and her dog Earnie as great hosts! My little dog Margaux loves spending time at their house and playing with Earnie. Lucy is totally pawsome! I highly recommend her to take care of your loved one and feel so lucky to have found her.
Lucy is WONDERFUL! She is so sweet and took such good care of my dog. She treats your dog like her own and you know your dog will be in good hands with her :)
Lucy is an AMAZING dog sitter - you can leave your pup with Lucy and have total peace of mind that your dog will be expertly cared for.

She's extremely attentive, loving, and comfortable handling dogs of all sizes and temperaments. With owners, she's reliable and communicative.

She's taken my two-year old (sometimes rambunctious) mutt Otto for hikes and took care of him for an overnight stay when I was out of town. He came back to us in happy spirits and well-exercised. Otto especially loves Lucy's sweet dog Ernie, who makes a perfect playmate.

Her adorable, spacious house has a private yard for playing, and she knows all the best dog-friendly hikes/parks in LA.

Thank you Lucy, Otto loves you (and Ernie!)
