About Roz

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We live in a very pet friendly house with our very sociable Australian Shepherd, Riya!! We have enclosed front and back patios. We are an active family who can provide alternative activities as suited for your dog. We live 5 minutes from a local park as well as running and walking paths. We love animals and will treat your doggie like family!!! We take dogs of all ages. Because we spend a lot of time with your dog and want to give them all the love and attention they need we do charge an additional $20.00 per night for dogs under a year of age. Please be aware our rates are for a 24 hour period, so please include your drop off and pick up times when requesting a booking. We both work part time, and therefore your dog will rarely be alone. I am a psychotherapist and my husband is a photographer. Your dog will go where we go and be a part of our family while you are away enjoying your own vacay!! We will send many updates with photos! If you need an extended stay, a weekend stay, or just for the day we are available. Please feel free to contact us with any questions and/or concerns. We look forward to meeting you and your furry child!!!

If I could give Roz and Rick 100 stars, I would! nothing short of perfection in looking after our poor old girl, who was not in the best of health. We are forever grateful for the care and good humor and the chicken and rice! Highest recommendation!
Today was the first time we've used Dogvacay. Roz was a fantastic host. There is no doubt she loves dogs and it shows. She is a true pro. Koko, our dog, has some separation anxiety but when we picked her up at the end of the day she was very happy and comfortable. I highly recommend Roz.
Halle is always relaxed when I pick her up which is a great four-legged testimony to how well she's been treated. Roz is the best!
Keane had the best time at Roz's. It was her first time there and Roz was great about sending photos and updates. It's clear that Roz cares about her guests as Keane was relaxed and barely wanted to come home. She will definitely staying with Roz again
We were very happy to have a fun, safe place to leave our beloved Sheltie for a couple of daycare visits, and will not hesitate to have her spend the night when we vacation in future. We highly recommend Roz's canine compound!
Roz was great and Max had a wonderful time! She was totally flexible about arrival and departure times and I could tell how happy he was - he will definitely stay there again!
This was my dog's first experience at Roz's. When I picked him up after two weeks he wasn't sure he wanted to leave, he had such a good time - plenty of walks and human as well as dog company. He did not whine and pull out of there as he used to after staying at a kennel. He was relaxed and mellow because he had obviously received the personal attention he needs. What a relief to have found a place my dog will be happy to go back to.
Roz was wonderful! She took such good care of our little baby and sent me pictures, which made our night out even more relaxing!
Dog vacay was great! My dog had a good time and got plenty of exercise. Booking via website was easy and the response was quick. We got updates and pictures as well. Will use again in the future for sure.
Rob was organized and friendly and the whole process was easy. She made my dog very welcome and I was happy to leave her to have a day of fun and exercise, while I had meetings etc. convenient location near the 101.
Always a wonderful experience. The nicest people, really sensitive to the dogs they care for, and very active people so the dogs always have a great day and great adventures. And somehow they seem to attract the best dogs, so Gracie is always in great company.
We are not from the area, and I wanted to do a helicopter tour of San Fran, so I could not bring my dog who is small, 7lbs and you can "sneak" her into places in her little bag---but not a helicopter!!! DogVaCay helped me find Roz whom I told I wished she lived closer to us so we could use her all the time!!! She was prompt in responding to me and my questions, and didnd't insist on a "meet and greet' based on talking with me and knowing I was in the area only for a short while (vacationing). She was lovely and so was her husband, and her dog and the other dogs staying there wer3e happy and welcoming to my little pup---I think my dog did not want to come back home when the day was over, and another dog staying with her whined a bit that she was leaving!!! Roz worked with me when I didn't know exactly what time we would get back home, which was wonderful, tho I kept in touch with her via text. She even sent a cute pic of my dog sitting on her lap while she was doing something at the table, to let us know that Sugar was doing fine and happy!!! :) I have used many dog sitters before, this one was very kind, polite, courteous, went out of her way to accommodate our needs, and I would recommend her to anyone staying in the area near Greenbrae or San Rafael---I WISH WE COULD USE HER OVER AND OVER but we live in Ventura County, CA, not here!!! :). 5 Paws recommendation for her.....
Roz was amazing with our little Maltese. I really enjoyed the updates and pictures! My dog looked so happy and I felt at ease leaving him in great care. I will definitely use her again.
Our two year old labradoodle had his best boarding experience ever! He is a somewhat shy and sensitive dog, and in the past when we have picked him up after boarding him elsewhere, he has seemed agitated and unsettled. Not this time! Roz was very thorough getting information about our dog ahead of time, and she sent us regular pictures and updates while we were gone. He was calm and happy when we picked him up, and I know he had a great time while we were gone. A wonderful experience from every perspective!
This was Bailey's first overnight with Roz and it was great! He settled in well and looked quite content in the picture that Roz texted me. Bailey returned to me in good spirits, obviously very well cared for AND with a bag of homemade treats! Thanks Roz for the awesome care :)
Always the best. I just don't worry and more than that I know beyond measure that little whackadoodle is taken care of - every time. every time!
We were very nervous to leave our Paige with someone new and had curtailed our travel plans as a result. Roz not only made us feel at ease by taking a sincere interest in learning about our girl, she sent photos and notes during the weekend to let us know all was well. When we picked Paige up it was evident that she had a great vacation. We already have plans for another doggie vacation with Roz next month. Highly recommend!
This was the first time I had ever left my little Coco overnight with anyone so you could imagine how I was feeling doing so. Plus Coco sometimes has issues with dogs bigger than her. Within an hour of Coco's stay I had received a picture of Coco and the other dogs having a great time after their walk with Roz. Coco looked so relaxed and happy and it made me feel so relieved to know she was in good hands and I had nothing to worry about. Roz is the dog Whisper. I was 110% happy with this service and hope to bring Coco back for another stay soon. I highly recommend her.
5 stars - every time. every time.
My Aussie Stella had a wonderful visit two consecutive days....she was very happy to go back for the second day and came home quite tired and ready to rest!
Roz was very friendly and accommodating for our little pooch who has some pretty bad food allergies. She provided daily updates to let us know how he was doing, and what fun things they were up to. I always felt like he was in good, caring hands.
Roz and her husband were excellent hosts, judging from Shadow's condition when she came home (Roz dropped her off, since I was out of town). She was happy and relaxed and smelled faintly of an organic powder that Roz uses to keep her dogs tick and flea-free. All her supplies were returned with her, which doesn't always happen.
My own impression of Roz and her accomodations was excellent: a kind, communicative person, a dog-friendly space. While I was away, she kept me posted about Shadow, and she was flexible about a slight change in the schedule.
I would definitely recommend the "Woofden" to people looking for a good place to leave their dogs.
Roz was awesome and Oreo our 1 year old puppy seemed to enjoy his stay. Roz was easy to work with regarding the schedule as we were able to drop him off and then enjoy our sightseeing and then pick him up in the early evening. He came home tired and that is what we were hoping for. When we go back up to Northern California we hope Roz will be able to care for Oreo again.
Woof Den is our dog's home away from home! Roz and her husband Rick take the utmost care of our dog and deliver lots of love to our 4 year old Weimaraner. We are completely comfortable with their care and highly recommend them! It is not often when you find someone this special to care for your beloved pet. Whether a day visit to Woof Den, or an overnight, our dog is in the best hands and we are fully able to enjoy ourselves with not a worry on our mind about our dog's well-being while we are away.
Roz was great and took our Aussie at the last minute. Buster had a blast and was very happy when we picked him up. We will definitely use Woof Den again!
Roz, Rick and Riya are a total find! They are kind, great folks who really and truly love dogs. They took amazing care of my Aussie and Lab. They took them on long walks and sent me photos too! My pups were calm and super happy when I picked them up. It was fantastic. I highly recommend Roz and her troop to watch your dogs!!
Roz and family took amazing care of our dog Charli. She had a great time running and playing with the other dogs. She came home very tired from her weekend of fun. Roz's updates and pictures throughout our weekend away were so nice. We already have Charli's next stay booked!
As always, Roz takes care of my German Shorthair Pointer as if she was one of he own. I can count on my dog coming home relaxed, well-exercised and loved. Roz is the BEST!!
Our “child” just spent a terrific week with Roz & Crew. He’s a 7 year old rescue that we've had for 2 years. While he has mild separation anxiety issues and this was his first time away, he did great thanks to Roz.

To start, they conduct a very through meet & greet to asses each potential guest’s personality to help insure a good fit. They are also spend time to learn all of the specific habits, wants and needs of each dog. Importantly, through out the week there were very regular communications about his “progress”, including pictures, to help ease the parent’s nerves.

Clearly, he had a terrific time. When we picked him up, he didn't want to leave and kept going back to the door to be with his new pack!

In short, you won’t do better that Roz for a choice!
as always - the best, the absolute best. Stella loves it with Roz/Rya
Roz and family did a great job with our dog, Gromit. They obviously loved having him, and from what I can gather from Gromit, the feeling was mutual. He can be a handful at times, but that didn't seem to phase Roz one bit. I will definitely being using her again for our next vacation, and hopefully for years to come. It is such a relief to have found a perfect place for our beloved pooch so that I don't have to worry at all about him when we leave.
Roz was great with Bailey - she made him feel right at home for his first stay with her. His initial anxiety at being away from me quickly went away and he felt comfortable enough to just chill with Roz and her dog Riya. An awesome stay - we look forward to our next one!
Roz loves dogs and takes good care of them. My herding dog has pretty serious separation anxiety issues, but Roz made her feel right at home. My dog especially enjoyed getting out with Roz's dogs and going hiking on the trails. Roz was also great about communicating with me and letting me know everything was okay.
Thank you Roz for taking such good care of my boy Marley. I can tell he had an awesome time staying at your wonderful home and going on long nature walks. Happy Holidays!
Roz and Rick are fabulous! My sometimes-nervous dog Makalu adjusted wonderfully to their home and Roz was great with updates! When I picked him up, he was calm, relaxed and exhausted from all the fun he had!
I have another extended overnight stay booked already and I couldn't feel more relieved to have found a lovely home for my baby boy to spend the holidays!
Ben had another wonderful day at Woof Den. Roz and Rick are so caring and loving. They take our Golden, Ben, out for exercise and give him plenty of TLC in their lovely home. Roz and Rick's Aussie, Riya, is a fabulous dog who sets a good example for our 18 mo. old pup! Looking forward to our next stay!
Another fun stay for Coco with Roz, Kylie and Riya. Coco loves this family and comes home happy and healthy. Couldn't be happier about her stay!
Roz is magnificent. Our little Millie was the lucky recipient of Roz's adoring care. Not only did I know that Millie was being well-cared for, but Roz treated her (and all the dogs there) with lots of play/park time. I was kept apprised of all the fun with lots of sweet pictures. We will use Roz again and again. I'm one pretty thrilled doggie-mom.
This was our first time using DogVacay and we couldn't have been more pleased. We would send in a request to Roz all over again in half a heartbeat. She was attentive to our concerns about leaving Bear, took him on multiple walks with the other very friendly four-legged guests (even dressing them up for Halloween), and allowed for lots of play time. Knowing that she had a fenced-in area for the dogs to romp made it all the better.

Bear's already looking forward to his next visit!
Roz is great! She is really low-key and clearly loves dogs. Her Aussie, Riya, is a doll and true to her breed, she helps keep all the four legged guests under control. My sweet girl came home happy, healthy and tired so I know she got plenty of exercise. Roz kept me well informed and responded immediately to my texts. I will definitely use her again.
Another fun stay for Coco with Roz and her lovely family. Coco had fun and I didn't have to worry for a minute about how she was doing. As always, Roz was extremely communicative and warm.
Roz was great! From our initial correspondence, to the meet and greet, through Roger's stay, she was responsive, very kind and shared lots of updates about Roger while we were away. I highly recommend Roz!
Our vacation plans for our dog fell through a week before we left for our trip. As I desperately searched online and checked in with friends for another sitter/boarding place, I came across DogVacay and found the previous reviews for Roz. The reviews were right on. She was just terrific in so many ways. Roz responded promptly to my initial email request and seemed comfortable and confident in accepting a potential challenge in taking care of our pet. Roz sent pictures and texts during our week away which was very reassuring. When she developed an eye condition, Roz took her to our vet and administered the twice-daily medicine. Her eye was almost back to normal by the time we returned. Our dog greeted us with a happy wag of her tail. It was obvious she had been well taken care of by an experienced sitter. I now look back on that last minute change of plans as a blessing in disguise. Because now we found Roz and would love to have our pet in her care for any future trips.
Roz is wonderful! Always quick to reply, attentive to our active lab mix and she sends photos while we are away, missing our pup! We have used her service twice and plan to do so again.
Roz and her husband Rick took excellent care of our one year-old Golden Retriever, Ben. They are warm, caring and flexible. Ben received lots of outdoor exercise and enjoyed hanging out in their lovely home with them and their wonderful Australian Shepherd, Riya. We look forward to our next visit to Woof Den.
Coco had a wonderful time with Roz and her family. I had a wonderful time too because Roz was extremely communicative and responsive and I didn't have to worry at all about how Coco was doing. We'll be signing up for more vacays at Roz's house!
This was Oscar's first stay with Roz and he will definitely be returning again! We feel incredibly fortunate to have found such a wonderful person to watch our dog. After six days Oscar came home happy from having so much fun, well cared for and relaxed from his "vacation". Roz was amazing!
Gracie had another wonderful stay at Woof Den, and we had another trip away without worry. Thank you Woof Den -- we all love you!
Ginger's stay with Roz was fabulous; they really took the time to make her feel comfortable and we felt our dog was well taken care of.
This is our first time with our dog staying with Roz. She was very responsive to our inquiry, make it easy to come and visit her. She was flexible to our needs and our dog's special requirements. She kept us informed as to how our dog was doing during her stay. Roz got her out walking and running for what I think was good amount of time each day. Hard to tell in our dog had fun -- she doesn't say much - but I will definitely use Roz again.
Roz and family were fantastic hosts for Trigo. Roz was well organized, communicative, and really great with dogs. Trigo was immediately drawn to Roz when we brought him over for a meet and greet. Trigo often favors his family over newcomers, and we always worry how he feels when we board him. It was a relief to see him be so easily affectionate with Roz. We'll definitely book again. Thanks Roz!
Roz and family was great. I had to drop my little girl very early and pick her up very late. Roz was super about it. Lucy had a great time and I'm so grateful to have found a place that takes such good care of their 'guests'.
The pics Roz sent were lovely and made me feel that Lucy was having a better time than we were. Will definatly use her again.
Thanks guys. You are good people.
Roz was wonderful! Our goldendoodle had a great time and was lovingly cared for. Highly recommend without the slightest reservation.
Roz and Rick (and their sweet dog, Riya) are wonderfully warm and caring. And, their home is dog friendly and welcoming. Gracie, our 9 year old border collie mix had the best first visit last weekend. In fact it was a great experience for all of us -- no separation anxiety on either end :) Rick's beautiful pictures say it all -- staying with them is relaxed, easy, fun, active, kind, and nurturing. We've already booked Gracie's next "vacation" at the Woof Den.
Roz and Rick are just wonderful. They were very acommodating with our Bichon Zoe's very unusual feeding schedule. Zoe tends to have separation anxiety but she was completely fine when she stayed with Roz and their Aussie Sheperd Riya who is also a wonderful host. Roz sent us lots of updates and pictures of Zoe having a blast on walks and outings. We're very happy to have found such a great caregiver for when we have to be away!
Roz & Rick are great! They were very sweet to Tillman, took him on great walks and a swim in the creek, bathed him, and texted me photos throughout Tillman's stay. Roz & Rick were very concerned for Tillman's happiness while he stayed with them. I would definitely recommend Roz & Rick!
This was my first time with having our small dog, Dolly, stay with Roz. Everything was great!
Roz has a nice, dog-friendly home, and she and her husband clearly love dogs. They are warm and friendly, and my dog had a wonderful stay. Highly recommended!
Roz and her family were perfect hosts. From her preparation and organization, to their lovely home, to the photos of our pooch sent to us when we were away, every step of the way was easy and smooth.

It looked like our dog had a great time.

We definitely recommend Roz and the Woofden, they are a great family and host.
Stella the wonder dog loved her stay at Chez Woof Den with Roz, Rya etc. Having to work 3 long days was stressful enough, but knowing that the high strung energetic Stella was in good hands helped abate any stress regarding my girls' welfare. I can't recommend these guys enough. I got back an exhausted, contented dog.
Roz and Rick took excellent care of my dog Daisy. She was so happy at their house and they really did a good job making her feel at home while I was away. We will definitely use them again!
Roz was great. Very attentive to Mamie and took good care of her. I would totally leave her again. Her husband is nice too. I liked that she was taken on a long walk. Ginny
We boarded Cooper, our 70 lb. nine-year-old boarder collie with Roz and family over the winter / Xmas break. He stayed with Roz on two separate occasions during that time.

I must admit, when I first dropped him off and drove away, I had the same apprehension of leaving my toddler, many years past, at preschool. Would he fit in with the other dogs (kids), would he feel abandoned by his family, would he be able to communicate his needs?

When I returned to pick him up, to my great delight and dismay, he did not want to leave. He was so content with Roz and the other three dogs that he just lay at her feet, and refused to come when I called him. This was such a testimony to how loved and cared for he felt. It also made me realize that he appreciated a change of scenery and some canine friends to hang out with. I will board with Roz again and will feel only gratitude to have found this ideal arrangement.
Roz and family are not only very dog knowledgable (they have their own Aussie), but the whole family is also very athletic - they kept my dog happy and exercised by taking him for a run every day and played ball with him in the park. Roz is a good communicator and always let me know how my dog was doing and returned my texts/emails promptly when arranging the stay and the pickup. The whole family is a pleasure to deal with and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again!
Thank you !!! Maggie had a great time with you and it was so good knowing she was in such a loving home whilst we were away. Loved the pictures too! See you soon x
We could not be happier that we have met Roz and family! Leaving our beloved terrier with her is like taking her to a home away from home: warm, loving, caring and fun! We love seeing all the photo updates Roz sends showing what Mackie is up to - she always seems to be part of the family and having her own little fabulous vacation while we are away. So nice to never have to worry about her while she is at The Woof Den!
Clash loved his stay! It was such a relief to know that while we were away he was having a vacay of his own, being treated like family by Roz and her family. We loved the photo updates, especially. Will definitely book with Roz again!
We just met Roz and her family for the first time, they took care of our small terrier while we went out of town for a last minute getaway. I couldn't imagine a more comfortable situation for our beloved dog. Roz and her home were warm, inviting and accommodating - real dog lovers and very kind people. Actually, our dog seemed so content when we picked her up, I think she would have been happy to stay. I'm so happy to have found the the "Woof Den"!
Awesome! You know your dog is in good hands and having fun when she doesn't want to leave at pick-up time!
Roz was amazing with Sabi. Made him feel right at home from the beginning. He usually gets anxious when I drop him off, but she held him in her arms and he didn't even seem to care that I was leaving. She took him to the park and threw a ball for him. She sent me photos and emails daily, keeping me updated on their activities. I felt very comfortable leaving Sabi with Roz and her family and he will certainly be revisiting with her the next time I am out of town!
Our pup needs a lot of companionship, so when our children went back to school in the fall and work started to get busy, she was spending a few hours at home by herself each day despite a dog walker and/or trainer coming by daily. Enter Roz, Rick and Riya--who I met on a walk one day. They have been wonderful, and we can't speak more highly of them. After each day spent with them, Laika comes home totally pooped out with a big smile on her face! Thank you!!
I had to go out of town for a night and had never left my dog overnight with anyone before. I knew Bentley would be nervous but Roz and her family were very understanding and assured me everything would be fine. They texted with updates and photos. I highly recommend them and felt very comfortable leaving my dog in their care
Roz and family were fantastic! Took excellent care of my pup, including her specific eating habits. Also provided updates and some amazing pics while I was out of town. I've already booked her next stay!
Moxie spent 4 days/nights at the Woofden with Roz and her husband. It totally exceeded my expectations. I got daily reports and Roz answered my inquiries very promptly. Her dog Rya was a sweetheart and very accepting of Moxie. I highly recommend Roz for taking excellent care of your dog!
Our Weimeraner, Blue had a fantastic time at the Woofden! Roz and Rick (and their sweet dog Riya) are great, active and attentive hosts. Highly recommend!
Our rescue doxie (and his owners) had a great experience with Roz and her family. He returned from his weekend with Roz freshly bathed, his teeth brushed (!) and thoroughly exhausted (in a good way) from walks, play time and even a jog. Roz even sent us photos over the weekend to assure us our dog wasn't causing chaos in her household.

To top it off, when we returned exhausted from our own road trip, Roz even offered to drop James off at our house.

We won't hesitate to use Roz again, and highly recommend her to other Marin families looking for a safe and happy place to leave their dog while out of town.
Roz and her family were so great! They are warm, comfortable and genuine dog people. There was an earthquake during our dog's stay and he got a bit spooked. Roz was so loving and treated him like her own. Roz communicated well, keeping us informed and at ease. I highly recommend Roz and know where our dog will stay during our next trip.
I could rave about how wonderful Ruby's experience was with Roz and Riya but I want to keep them for my very own home away from home. Well, okay I'll share. First of all I really like how Roz is aware of the dangers of foxtails, so that she keeps an eye out for them. Then there's the level of exercise she gives the dog; a lot if they want it by going for a run with her and Riya, and/or by playing on the green grass in the beautiful park near their house. I felt completely assured that my Ruby (who hasn't been away from me for even a single night in her 8+ years) would be well loved. In fact, when I picked her up I got the sense that she was not that eager to leave! I think she could have stayed a little longer no problem. And this is a dog who is very insecure and sticks to me like velcro. I look forward to leaving Ruby with Roz again, and I'm sure Ruby looks forward to staying with her too.
Roz and Rick were wonderful to our Tiger Lily! She is an active dog and she got lots of exercise and activity and plenty of caring attention. Lily also got to hang out with their sweet dog, Riya.

She came home relaxed and happy, which made us very happy!
