About Elaine & David

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dogs that are friendly around small children and other dogs are best for our home. All dogs must be vaccinated, on some sort of flea-prevention, and be fixed.

I've been a DogVacay Host since 2012. Over the years, there have been some additions to my family: I have a 2 year old son (Miles), a 2 year old Doxie mix rescue (Biscuit) and a fiance (David) who will help me to care for your pup.

We work full-time, but we'd love to help you with your pup on weekends and holidays. If you are gone longer than that, I also work in a pup-friendly environment in Santa Monica, so I can take your pup to work with me if your trip spills over.

We live in a detached guest house in West LA, where we share a big yard another dog (Margo). Margo is older and pretty friendly Our dog, Biscuit, is very energetic and will run around and play all day long. Both dogs can be separated from your pup in case they don't get along for whatever reason. But they both generally welcome new friends after an initial "getting to know you" period.

We will walk, feed, and administer oral medication according to your schedule, and we offer unlimited belly rubs and baby snuggles.

Awesome hosts! We loved getting picture updates and he had a ton of fun.
they were great! my dog seemed to really enjoy the stay and the nice big yard.
Lola had a great time with Elaine and David. Lola went to the beach and was treated great! Thank you Elaine and David for taking great care of Lola.
It was my first time using dogvacay.com and Elaine was able to quickly respond to my somewhat last minute request and was great with my five month old puppy, Kayla. She took her to Wiggley Field multiple times and Kayla came home tired and well taken care of. I would definitely recommend Elaine and plan to use her services again in the future.
Elaine is a true hero! My dog Mitzvah had a horrible accident at the park a few days before we were supposed to have a meet and greet with Elaine and she was very understanding and supportive. Mitzvah had emergency surgery and is now at the beginning stages of a long recovery. When I was in a pinch for a dog sitter, Elaine saved the day! She made herself available on a Saturday night with about 24 hours notice and even came to my apt to be with Mitzvah so I didn't have to leave her in a strange place in her condition! Mitzvah just needed the company and someone to keep an eye on her to make sure she wasn't scratching or biting at her stitches and Elaine was just the person! She sent me photos and texts throughout the night and Mitzvah was even served her dinner in bed when she was feeling too nervous to go over and eat with new people around. I wouldn't hesitate to book Elaine again!
Finally decided to try DogVaCay and was impressed that Elaine, rescued us at the last minute and cheerfully agreed to take our 5mth old chihuahua puppy for a week. Elaine dealt with the hassle of puppy accidents, all while providing the fun, affection, and supervision that gave us peace of mind. We got frequent the pictures that reflected the wonderful care provided by Elaine. We did return to a very happy puppy and a very gracious Elaine who, we're sure, had to cope with the puppy behaviors that aren't so cute! She also went out for more supplies when they ran out. Elaine made us a believer in DogVacay.
Elaine was an excellent host for Matilda! She was extremely accommodating, accepting my reservation at the last minute and very flexible when my flight home was delayed. As a recent rescue, Matilda is pretty skittish and can require a lot of patience. I felt she was in great hands with Elaine. Thanks!
Elaine was great. It was the first time I used Dog Vacay, and I wasn't sure how it would go. She sent me pictures while I was away, and Carly came home happy. So pleased to find an alternative to boarding!
Elaine was great with my boys. She made them comfy in her home, gave them a lot of attention and sent me photos and updates so I knew they were okay and I could focus on having fun on vacation. I would highly recommend her to anyone - especially if your dogs are used to a lot of love!
Elaine was great!! She responds to email and phone communication very expeditiously and is extremely flexible. She also sends Instagram updates of your dog! I cannot recommend Elaine enough.
Elaine did another fantastic job with Nigel! This was our second time having her host our dog, and we're tremendously happy she could take him on again. Definitely a great host!
I had a great experience with Elaine! She was so good to my 2 dogs, she took them to the park, played with them, I was worried they wouldn't want to come home... She was so good with them, I am so happy to have found someone who takes better care of my dogs than I do! I could not have asked for a better experience. I would definitely recommend her to anyone! She sent me the cutest pictures everyday, it really put my mind at ease knowing they were in her care.
I felt very comfortable leaving my dog (Dolly) with Elaine. No one likes to leave their dog, but knowing she was in good hands made it so much easier!
Elaine is great! Pom Pom enjoyed her stay very much! Thank you Elaine!
Elaine was amazing! She responded very quickly to our last-minute request and was an amazing host. We got tons of updates and cute texts with pictures of our pup having fun. She even offered to take him to a backyard BBQ. Highly recommended!
Elaine was absolutely amazing! She sent picture updates to my phone all weekend, and let me know immediately when she thought there may have been a concern when Bella was limping (something she does often). She took Bella to the dog park not once, but twice each day. She absolutely spoiled her, and did not complain at all about her excessive shedding issues. I initially chose Elaine because I needed someone who did not have other pets in the home. Elaine treated Bella as if she were her own, and I was almost sad to take Bella away from her because I know they had an amazing time together. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants their dog treated like royalty for a few days.
