We love dogs, we enjoy meeting new dogs & we're great at caring for dogs....it's that simple! We are a 40-something responsible couple, with no children. We have 2 rescued Chihuahuas, Max & Cleo and Bella, the cat ~ all 3 of them love welcoming new friends! We are also involved with rescues & fostering, so we are used to all kinds of different personalities & habits. Let us add your dog's pawprint to our special canvas keepsake.

We will make your dog feel like a part of our family. You can bring their favorite things (bed, blankies, toys, treats) so they will feel comfortable. We will email you updates & awesome pictures are our specialty! We will take your doggy on walks, give them lots of TLC & spoil them rotten. We offer a healthy, clean, safe, loving, friendly, fun, smoke-free environment. We are flexible & accommodating.

We are experienced and have plenty of references that will share raving reviews. $50 a day & worth every penny.....peace of mind is priceless! Your best friend deserves the very best! Dogs are family! Yours will go home happy & will be excited when it's time for their next stay with us.

Important ~ Your time is valuable, as is ours! Please be respectful & prompt with your meet-n-greet appointments, drop off & pick up times. It's much appreciated. And we're passionate about spay & neuter, so please be sure that your friend is altered. =)

I am so thankful for Sabrina and Jonathan. They watched our two jack russell chihuahuas for us while my husband and I got married and traveled back to the east coast to celebrate with our friends and family. We have utilized their services many times and they never fail to provide a clean, comfortable home, so many cute pictures, and tons of love to our precious boys! I am very weary of who I feel I can trust to take care of them, and they are always at the top of our list. I was so thankful to have them host for this longer stay! On this particular visit, one of our dogs got into a scuffle with one of her resident dogs (our dog can sometimes be fiesty and territorial, but this had never happened before during a stay with them). Sabrina was so kind and professional throughout the ordeal - she called me immediately to let me know what was going on, and was able to manage the situation with ease from afar. So in sharing this, you can absolutely trust Jonathan and Sabrina to provide the best care under any circumstances (as these things can happen when we don't expect them to)! I am so appreciative of the patience and care that her and Jonathan provided.

We were at ease knowing our dog Lula was with Sabrina and Jonathan. They have a very clean, beautiful home where Lula was treated as a resident not a guest. I recieved pictures and updates during her stay. This is Lula's vacation getaway!!
We were excited to have our two small dogs stay with Sabrina and Jonathan again! As always, they over-delivered and were the best care-takers! They have a super clean, spacious home, and a nice-sized yard. Sabrina was always on the ball sending me lots of photos, which was comforting, as a fellow worrywart Dog Mama. This short stay was sort of a trial run before we embark on a 7+ day trip, and we feel more than comfortable leaving our babies with them for that amount of time! Don't hesitate to choose them - they genuinely love dogs and are responsible pet-sitters!

Once again, Jonathan and Sabrina came through in a pinch and took our precious pups for boarding at the last minute when we had a sudden and unexpected death in the family. It was so nice knowing our pups were being loved and cared for when we were going through such a difficult time. I can't say enough about what wonderful people Jonathan and Sabrina are and how good they are to our senior goldens, Sam and Sophie. They even sent them home with a beautiful card expressing their sympathy for our loss. Thank you again Jonathan and Sabrina. You are the best!

Another great stay for our senior goldens, Sam and Sophie, with Jonathan and Sabrina. We feel our dogs are so loved and well cared for with Jonathan and Sabrina, that we can go away without a care in the world. We get great pictures and updates of our pups and Jonathan and Sabrina always go the extra mile to make them happy. Sophie missed her weekly dog beach trip because we had to go away so Jonathan took her swimming in their pool. They always come home happy and healthy and we so appreciate having people like Jonathan and Sabrina available to care for our pups. Thank you!

My small dog vacationed with Jonathan and Sabrina while I was out of town for a week in May 2016.My main concern was that my dog barks if alone. After the booking they had a last minute unexpected change where my pet would be left alone during the day. They offered to allow me to change sitters but also said they'd be willing to give it a try. I felt comfortable enough that I continued with the reservation. It apparently was not a problem as she had company with the other dogs. I got daily updates and pictures which gave me reassurances that all was well. She was also able to sleep with the host family. I was extremely happy with this experience and will certainly book with them again. My little dog even made me a cute little paw print on canvas upon return. I highly recommend this couple if you need a pet sitter. ,

We left our pup with Jonathan and Sabrina for the second time this spring - it was another great experience. Over the 5 days we received daily photos and updates. Even though we were out of the country and rarely online, Sabrina was diligent in sending updates when we were able to reply. I always feel comfortable leaving our dog at their home and she comes home happy. We even got a little art project with her paw print on it! I would recommend them 100%.

This is the third or fourth time my senior golden retrievers, Sam and Sophie, have stayed with Sabrina and Jonathan and they (and I) are never disappointed. They are so well cared for and loved by Sabrina and Jonathan and I always feel 100% comfortable leaving my precious pups with them. Sabrina and Jonathan were willing to take a last minute reservation, gave us a nice price for two pups and were more than willing to feed Sam and Sophie their special diet. Best of all though are the wonderful pictures and updates I receive throughout their stay so I know they are happy, healthy and having fun. Thank you Jonathan and Sabrina! It's so nice to know you're there when I have either planned vacation or a last minute trip.

These guys are a blessing! As a small dog owner, I have had a hard time finding a place to leave her where I don't feel like she's suffering. Pooch left her alone way too much. Other doggie day care denied her due to her separation anxiety. Chihuahuas are quirky dogs and chi people know the breed and how to love it anyway. Sabrina and John are the perfect fit and knowing them from my time as a foster with a chi rescue reassures me. Chi fosters know the drill with small dogs which gave me great peace of mind. When I came to pick her up, I got my kisses, then she went right back to playing with her new friends! No clingy, no drama, she was happy and relaxed after 5 days of us being apart. Speaks volume of her experience there. I love those guys! And it's so great to have a solution for times when I need people-alone-time.

This is the third time Reggie has vacationed here. Jonathan and Sabrina have a big heart for animals and a great home for pet sitting. A large back yard and very clean home. I would highly recommend them.
This was the second time our dog stayed with Jon and Sabrina, and we just love them! They are so sweet, and it's awesome to have peace of mind while we're away knowing that Lily is in great, loving hands. We will definitely be having her stay there again!!

This was our first time using DogVacay but our son had used Jon & Sabrina for their dog and highly recommended them. We were hesitant at first, because Bosco had a previous bad experience with other dogs at the dog park. Jon & Sabrina let us come for a meet & greet at their house and it went really well.

If I could give Jon & Sabrina 10 Stars, I would! Sabrina sent us lots of photos during Bosco's stay and he seemed right at home. So much so that I joked that he wouldn't want to come home! They spend so much time with the dogs in their care and even sent us home with a handmade paw print painting! They are warm and caring people with a beautiful home, yard and pool - a true paradise for any dog!

We can't thank them enough!

Sabrina & Jonathan were amazing - I will 100% use them again. We left our 10 mo. old lab puppy with them for 5 days and it could not have gone better. I received at least 5 photos per day and detailed updates. Sabrina is experienced with dogs and it shows. Our pup is spoiled (an understatement) and I feel confident that she received just as much love while we were gone. They were flexible with pick-up times and allowed me to come at 6:30 in the morning. She even sent us home with a personalized, homemade piece of art with Tannin's paw print. I would absolutely recommend Sabrina & Jonathan.

Being from the east coast, the thought of traveling home without my dog for 10 days was both scary and sad for me. I wanted to make sure my 11 month old puppy was in the best hands and I couldn't have asked for more from Sabrina and Jonathan. From our initial meet and greet, I knew that Riley would be in a loving home where he would get tons of attention and playtime during the holidays. I received photo updates consistently and always knew that he was having a great time! At the time, Riley also had an ear infection and they were so accommodating, ensuring they knew exactly how to give him his meds and at what time.

Overall, my experience with Sabrina and Jonathan was great - I couldn't have asked for more. I would highly recommend them and I will certainly be using them anytime Riley needs an overnight stay again!

It was nice not having to stress while we were on a much needed vacation knowing Zuri was safe and so well cared for with Sabrina and Jonathon. They really are wonderful caring "animal" people. Sabrina was so thoughtful with all the great photos & updates. Zuri seemed to be having a great adventure of her own. I just hope they don't get too busy or we'll never be able to go on vacation again. Zuri asked Santa for a kitty like Bella for Christmas..Thank You from the bottom of our hearts for making our furbaby Zuri feel so secure while we were away. We hope to see you again soon. Renee, Clay & Zuri

Jonathan and Sabrina were amazing hosts for our dogs Daisy (11) and Bodhi (1) over Christmas. We were able to enjoy our time away because we knew they were having fun! We received lots of pictures and communication to keep us in the loop! We we're 100% comfortable and satisfied with their service and will definitely use them again!

Another amazing stay at Sabrina and Jonathan's house for our pup, Tucker. He loves frolicking through their beautiful backyard, and cuddling on the bed with all of their soft, fuzzy blankets. Sabrina treats Tucker as if he were her own, and you cant ask for anything more than that. I am completely at ease when she is caring for him. We treat Tucker as if he is our child, so this does not come lightly. We also love how Sabrina sends multiple pictures each time Tucker stays with her. He is always happy to greet her, and that is how you know your dog is truly cared for. He always comes home happy and healthy. We have used multiple doggy hotels in the past, and Tucker always came home with some sort of bug and a loose stool (sorry TMI). He is 100% norma and healthy (his typical self) when in their care and immediately after his stay when he comes home! I can't recommend Sabrina and Jonathan enough! Thank you!!

Sabrina and Jonathan were wonderful and Zuri had a great time on her first but definitely not her last sleepover. She seemed very comfortable and settled in. Sabrina was so sweet to post a few photos, it really put us at ease. Zuri's Paw Painting was just too cute!

Jonathan and Sabrina were absolutely great doggy sitters to our furbaby, Tucker! He enjoyed his second stay with them, and had so much fun! Sabrina always responds very quickly, and gives multiple daily updates! My fiance and I love getting pictures of Tucker and watching him have so much fun with his furry pals. We feel 110% comfortable in leaving our furbaby (whom we treat as a child) with them, and we have already scheduled our 3rd doggy vacay ! We truly appreciate your help and thank you very much for taking such excellent care of our furbaby!

Jon and Sabrina were so great!!!

It was our first time using Dog Vacay, and we were drawn to their profile right from the start - mostly because of the swimming pool in their backyard and because the pricing was so reasonable. We contacted them right away and they responded immediately. Our meet-and-greet was a great way to get to know them and for our dog, Lily, to check out where she would be staying. When we met Sabrina, we instantly knew that Lily would be in very capable hands.

While we were gone, we got several photos and updates from Sabrina. It was so nice to know that Lily was getting so much love and attention. She got to swim in the pool and play with their dogs, and it seemed like she was having a great time!

When we went to pick up Lily, Sabrina had nothing but wonderful things to say about her. She even sent us home with a new toy, a card with a really sweet message, and a little handmade gift. Sabrina going that little extra mile was incredibly thoughtful and blew our expectations away!

We will definitely be sending Lily to stay with Jon and Sabrina again!

Devin had a wonderful stay. Thank you.
My dogs, Nani and Chica, had the best time at Sabrina and Johnathan's house. They have a beautiful home with a fenced in yard with shade, grass, and tons of play area. Sabrina was so cute sending tons of daily photos of my pups enjoying their time. They really treated my dogs like their own by taking them on walks, allowing them to sleep in the bed with them, let them cuddle in their favorite warm spot between the legs. :) They can't wait to go back for more vacation time! Thanks Sabrina and Johnathan for loving and caring for my pups! They miss you already!

Sabrina and Jonathan were excellent dog sitters. My dog Rosko was so happy to be in a household with love and care. I was sent pictures of my wonderful boy enjoying his time there. I am very pleased and felt comfortable leaving him. Sabrina and Jonathan will be on my list next time i need a dog sitter. Thank you so much!

Sabrina and Jonathan are the best. It was my first time. I was a little concerned at first leaving my 2 furry children with anybody new. The first 12 hours I received so many updates and photos from Sabrina, that I could just tell that they settled in quickly and were comfortable. I had updates almost every day and felt relieved and happy that I knew they were being taken care of. Auntie Sabrina even sent the baby home with her own new "squeek" toys, and a personalized gift from my furry babies too. Definitly will be using these two again.

Jonathon and Sabrina are amazing! They treat my Rosie like part of their family. It's always sad leaving your pet but knowing this, they keep in touch letting us know how she's doing and even forward pictures throughout her stay..I think she looks forward to her "Doggy Vacay" as much as we do our vacation. Would never leave her in the care of anyone else!

Sabrina was wonderful in taking care of my dog Oliver when I was traveling for business. I felt fortunate that I found her on DogVacay. Given the highest level of care she gave to her dogs plus many years of experience working with rescue dogs, I was very comfortable that Oliver had the best care. Sabrina kept me updated several times per day and she was very accommodating with drop off and pick time. The entire time, Oliver was overly "obsessed" with Sabrina's cat Bella and would not leave Bella alone. Sabrina was always being patient with Oliver's obsession. I highly recommend Sabrina to any dog owners and I would definitely use her service again. Thanks, Sabrina!

If you are looking for an animal loving couple to take care of your dog while you're away, Jonathan and Sabrina will do just that - and more!! I have never done anything like this for my German Shepherd mix, Rosco, so I set up a meet and greet and instantly knew they'd be perfect! Once it was time for me to drop Rosco off, I knew he would be in great hands! From all the pictures that were sent to me on a daily basis to the email towards the end of my trip that was so cute I had to read it to all of my family, I could tell Rosco was having a great time! My flight back to Cali was delayed over an hour and Sabrina was super flexible with my pick up time being later than it should have. A big thanks to you both again and we will definitely be using you for future trips!!! :o)

This was Abbey's second visit to Sabrina and Jonathan. We felt our girl was safe, secure and happy while with them and even got to make some new four legged furry friends! The photos sent to us made us feel more at ease knowing our little precious one was in good hands. Thanks Sabrina and Jonathan for making Abbey one happy girl!

Sabrina and Jonathan were absolutely amazing! We can't thank them enough for taking such great care of our precious furbaby, Tucker. We reached out to them for a last minute weekend getaway for my fiance's birthday, and Sabrina texted me within an hour. We then set up our meet and greet two days later. The meet and greet went very well, and we dropped Tucker off to stay with them for 3 nights. Tucker had so much fun, and was spoiled rotten during his stay. From painting us a picture, to playing outside, and floating on a raft in their pool, he had the perfect doggie vacay. Sabrina was great about texting us 100s of pictures, and giving us updates more frequently than we could have ever even asked. She was fantastic, and I had no doubt in my mind that Tucker was in great hands. The price is worth every penny, and way better than a pet resort. We will definitely use Sabrina and Jonathan again in the future. THANK YOU so much for taking care of Tucker. We truly appreciate it!

Another great visit with Sabrina and Jonathan! Jake got a lot of attention and love – and clearly had a great time! My mind was set at ease with daily pictures ! Once again, Jake was really not ready to go home! ✨
With an amazing amount of patience, our dog had a terrific first-time away experience. By the second dAy, she had joined the pack and asking for belly
Rubs. The pictures helped us to truly relax and know she was just fine and having her own adventures. We are only grateful to have found this safe space for Menos.

I am so happy to have found Sabrina and Jonathan to watch over The Dream Team (Lulu and Diego) while I am away. They do a fantastic job and I am very comfortable knowing they are getting the best care possible. I even had an emergency with one of my pups before this last visit; I just gave them the special instructions for care and knew my little guy would be okay while I was away. They are wonderful with updates and photos too!
I highly recommend them as pup sitters!

If you're looking for the best possible caretakers for your fur babies, Jonathan & Sabrina are it. We have two Chis, London & Paris, London who we adopted from Jonathan & Sabrina. They're extremely thorough, friendly, confident, & loving people.

We've kept in touch with them from day one, sending them updates, & built a strong bond over the girls. We didn't even hesitate to contact them when needing weekend boarding for our girls. Sabrina sent dozens of pictures throughout the weekend as I requested, giving me almost hourly updates which really put my mind & heart at ease. If you're anything like us as fur parents, your fur babies are like your kids, & you worry no matter the situation. Having these updates & seeing how happy they looked made a world of difference, compared to other times we've left them. We knew they were safe, sound, & secure.

When picking the girls up, they were 100% packed & ready to go. We also received an amazing gift made by the girls, a small canvas with their pawprints. This was just about the sweetest thing ever! Not to mention the girls adored them after that short weekend, showing them tons of love as we were leaving, & that says a LOT because our girls can sometimes take awhile to warm up to people in that manner.

We will DEFINITELY be booking them again for our upcoming trips throughout the rest of 2015. Thanks so much, Jonathan & Sabrina, for loving our babies as we would have while we were gone; it means so much! :)

We had a great vacation and so did Reggie! We received regular updates and photos of our doggies vacation while on our own. Reggie is a fussy eater and was taking medication at the time. Sabrina and Jonathan were so great with dealing with his needs. This is the second time Reggie has vacationed here. He hopes to come back soon. :)

My dog Honey is very picky. But, this is the third year in a row that we have used Sabrina and Jonathan, and Honey is very happy. We love them. Sabrina corresponds and sends cute pictures via text and that is very comforting to our family.

Sincerely,
Honey and her people

Jonathan and Sabrina are focused on learning all about your dog in order to provide a high level of customized care! Within minutes of meeting them I felt confident that Jake would receive great attention - and I was not disappointed! He stayed 8 nights in their home and I received regular updates and photos. It set me totally at ease. The best way for me to know how well Jake was taken care of is how he acts after he is picked up - when I picked him up, Jake he was totally relaxed and happy - and quite frankly, I think he would have been quite content to stay with Sabrina and Jonathan!

I'm a picky dog mom, and I worry about my senior Schnauzer while I'm away. Fortunately I've got Sabrina and Jonathan to look after him when I have to travel! They are super dog savvy and do a fabulous job of looking after my boy. I've left him with them many times in the past, and will continue to do so in the future. Awesome people doing an awesome job looking after pups!

Another great stay with our favorite dog sitters. They are always so easy to work with and our little one is so well taken care of. Sabrina and Jonathan are terrific. You won't find a better place to put your sweet pet.
Another GREAT stay for my dog Bailey! Bailey always enjoys his time with Jonathan & Sabrina, they treat him like family they are The BEST! Thanks again :)
Our sweet Bella sure does love her visits with Sabrina and Jonathan. She also loves playing with her buds Max and Cleo. Thank you for taking such good care of our girl! xoxo Melanie & Mike
This is the third time my golden retrievers, Sam and Sophie, stayed with Jonathan and Sabrina and it was the longest - 12 days while we were in Europe. I can't say how much we appreciate and trust Jonathan and Sabrina to take care of our precious pups. They are so loving and are committed to treating them as members of their own family. It allows us to be perfectly at ease that our babies are being so well cared for when we are so far away. Jonathan and Sabrina took Sam and Sophie for long walks, made accommodations for their special home cooked food, gave them bedtime medications, and even let them go swimming in their pool! We received daily updates by email and text as well as wonderful pictures of all the fun Sam and Sophie were having. I would never even think of boarding my dogs in a traditional kennel and with wonderful people like Jonathan and Sabrina willing to take such great care of your dogs, there isn't any reason to. Thank you Jonathan and Sabrina - you are both Angels!

Sabrina and Jonathan are simply the best! They are wonderful caring people and love our doggie just as much as we do. Whenever we leave our furry child with them we are confident she is in great loving hands! 100% reliable, trustworthy, dependable, professional, friendly, helpful, and sincere! Sabrina is so thoughtful and attentive, always sending us the latest photos and text messages. We feel at ease and never stressed leaving our doggie Della with them. Most importantly, Della loves them and is always thrilled to stay with them. We could not recommend them highly enough!!!

My chihuahuas Bella and Zoey give them TWO PAWS UP and TWO HAPPY TAILS! Jonathan and Sabrina love Bella and Zoey like they were their own. I know they are in good loving and caring hands in my absence. I always call Jonathan and Sabrina when my dogs need a doggie vacay.

Sabrina and Jonathan are great with Bailey they show him much love and he is always happy happy to see them! I have no worries when he stays at their house. I give them 5 stars
Another great visit for our sweet Bella with Sabrina and Jonathan! She truly loves staying with them and hanging with Max and Cleo!! Thank you so very much for taking care of our girl and for being not only trustworthy but so caring :-)
This was Sam and Sophie's second stay with Jonathan and Sabrina and they took such great care of them. Both are senior goldens and they have special food and some special needs and Jonathan and Sabrina are so willing to do whatever they need when they sit for Sam and Sophie. Sabrina sends daily updates via email and includes a bunch of great pictures of my pups playing, relaxing, exploring and having a great time. I so appreciate having such a loving couple take care of my precious pups. It gives me great comfort when I'm away. Thank you!

What a blessing to not only have found our sweet Bella but to find two amazing people that truly care about dogs and their well being is the real icing on the cake! Sabrina and Jonathan are simply incredible!! They took wonderful care of our dog while we were out of town and I felt so comfortable with our girl being with them. They took her in just as their own Max and Cleo, and Bella was smiling the whole week she stayed with them. We have tons of great photos to prove it. I can't thank them enough and would recommend them to anyone looking for a dog-sitter you can really trust.

We love Jonathan and Sabrina so much and so will you and your pet!!! We have used them several times now and would not trust our little Gangstas to anyone else! Your pet will receive the best care, love, and attention and you will receive peace of mind, updates, and the cutest pictures ever!!! We really appreciate that they were able to accommodate us for a last minute trip this time. They are absolutely wonderful and have our little Gangstas seal of approval!!!

Sabrina and Jonathan are such wonderful people and took awesome care of my two senior golden retrievers, Sam and Sophie. I have to admit I'm a nervous and over protective doggy mama and Sabrina alleviated all of my concerns with constant updates and beautiful pictures of my precious pups relaxing and having fun. They were also willing to feed Sam and Sophie their special home cooked food, give Sam medicine at bed time and take care of some of Sam's special needs due to his cancer treatment 3 years ago. I could tell from Sabrina's emails, texts and pictures that they treated our dogs like members of their family, were so loving with them and were so happy to have Sam and Sophie with them which made me relax and feel good. I would recommend Jonathan and Sabrina to everyone. They have a lovely home, a big backyard and a pool if your pups like to swim. Sam and Sophie will definitely be spending more time with Jonathan and Sabrina!

We used Sabrina & Jonathan in the past. We only trust them with our 11 year old shih tzu. We had an out of town trip for a day and asked Sabrina if she could watch Kui. Kui has been getting older and crankier and very picky with her food. Therefore, I needed somebody who has the patience and understanding to watch my Kui. I didn't even have my little sister watch her because of how difficult Kui can get. Sabrina and Jonathan are amazing with Kui and I'm always at ease when she's with them. Sabrina sent me an email update on how Kui was doing with her eating and sent me a couple of pictures. I also love how much attention Kui gets from Sabrina and Jonathan. It's almost like Kui's second home when she's there! Thank you so much Sabrina and Jonathan for loving my baby when she's with you.

I cannot say enough GREAT things about Sabrina, she was in touch with me everyday with updates and photos sometimes twice a day. I know Bailey was in The Perfect Home with Sabrina and Jonathan they gave him Lot's of love and attention!
This will be the Only home away from home for Bailey!
Love and appreciation,
Trish and Bailey :)

Once again our little gangstas had a wonderful stay (10 days) with Jonathan and Sabrina! We wouldn't trust them with anyone else!
As always, it was another amazing stay for Pasha at his new favorite place. This time we were gone for eight nights and once again were treated to a whole portfolio of pictures of a happy dog playing in the grass and sleeping on their bed (mostly sleeping on the bed :))

We continue to feel 100% confident about leaving our dog with Sabrina and Jonathan. Although we usually only take one big trip a year, circumstances led us to take three within nine months, which can be very hard on a dog like Pasha. Finding Sabrina and Jonathan has been nothing short of a miracle. Every time we return, Pasha is happy, healthy and clearly had a great time. They have a lot of positive reviews now and deserve every single one. You can't do better for your dog than Sabrina and Jonathan!

Lilly's stay with Sabrina and Jonathan was fantastic! We had daily updates with pictures! If you love your pet as much as we do, we highly recommend bringing them here!
My dog Glory had a fabulous time with Sabrina and Jonathan. I loved the daily photo updates and little stories about what Glory was up to. It was nice to know that she was taken care of so well. I would definitely book with Sabrina and Jonathan again in the future.

Another fantastic stay with Sabrina and Jonathan! My yorkie Nikki loves them both! :)
Once again Guido and Gambino had a great time with Jonathan and Sabrina and we were able to relax on our vacation knowing they were staying with the best! We loved getting the email updates and cutest photos ever of our little gangsters! We could tell they felt perfectly at home with all the love, care, and attention they received.

Sabrina & Jonathan are fantastic. Nikki had a great time and I was so appreciative of all the photo updates. I will definitely be booking with them again!
A wonderful experience for me and my pups. I highly recommend Sabrina and Jonathan.
My pups had a wonderful time with the hosts and host pups. I received photo updates and notes and was comfortable knowing they will be well cared for while I was away. I will certainly use them again!!
Thanks for taking such wonderful care of Lulu and Diego!

J and Sabrina were so great with Puki. She loved her time with the Chihuahuas and was treated like the princess she is. J and Sabrina have watched over our girl twice now and both times we were extremely happy with the updates and reports back. Thank You!

Our 6.5 year old black lab has never been left alone for more than a few days. She is very active, not used to being left alone and has a terrible cookie monster attitude. We were absolutely terrified at the thought of being away from her for 11 days. Luckily, we found DogVacay and from there we were so so fortunate to find Sabrina and Jonathan. Our meet and greet was probably a little more extensive than S&J were used to but they embraced every moment -- not just with us but with our pooch Abbey as well. It was a clear fit. We were traveling abroad and it was a joy every morning to wake up and given the time change, have pictures of Abbey to start our day with. Sabrina and Jonathan kept us informed on Abbey's well being, feeding habits and overall activities and the daily pictures were heartwarming. Initially we were unsure about even using this site and now we know we (including Abbey) have made a lasting friendship. We hope to have Abbey visiting them soon since it is clear she misses her time with them and the friends she made while she was on vacation at their house. It is clear to me, the nervous nellie of our family, that Sabrina and Jonathan have everything a dog on vacation (and the dog parents) could ask for. We are so blessed to have found them.

This was our second time leaving Pasha with Jonathan and Sabrina and everything went just as wonderfully as the first! We were sent a slew of daily pictures showing Pasha rolling on the lawn, relaxing on his bed, relaxing on *their* bed and just generally having a great time. I've already booked a future visit with Jonathan and Sabrina and have complete confidence that when he stays with them, my dog will be in safe and caring hands.

Sabrina and Jonathan are great! I received pictures several times during my trip and my pups looked happy! It really helps to put your mind at ease to enjoy your vacation when your pets are well taken care of too. I would recommend them to anyone who wants their pets treated like family!

Jonathan and Sabrina will always be the people I ask to watch my dog when I go away. As a repeat customer, there is a great peace of mind in knowing the wonderful care of they take of her. She comes home happy and healthy! I really appreciate email updates with pictures and knowing that I can go away and my dog is being cared for by excellent people.

When Devin got home after his stay with you, I was surprised that he wasn't thrilled to see me. Then I realized he enjoyed himself so much and loved being with you that he was thinking, "Awwww, you again?"
they treat my dog like their own, she loves it there. She is always in great shape when she comes home, not like some other places I have left my pets where they come home with parasites or fleas. They are wonderful pup sitters and she will go there as long as they will have her. Thank you Sabrina and Jonathan for taking such good care of Shelby.

As always, my dogs had a blast with Jonathan and Sabrina. I loved getting pictures from Sabrina showing them doing their doggy thing - lying around the pool, begging for people food, and generally having a great time. Knowing that my dogs are in such good hands makes it that much easier for me to enjoy my own vacation. Thanks Jonathan and Sabrina!

Awesome is how I would describe our experience with Jonathan and Sabrina. Their house is great for doggies and there is a fun back yard to play in. I felt so comfortable leaving my fur-babies with them. I enjoyed the fun pix I got so I could see how they were doing without us. I certainly will use Sabrina and Jonathan the next time our doggies need a vacay.

Jelly was so well taken care of, I am not sure she is going to want to come home:). I received pictures of Jelly everyday. Sabrina and Jonathan do a fantastic job and will leave my dog Jelly with them whenever I leave town.
Sabrina and Jonathan are the best! This was fairly a last minute request and they responded right away confirming that they could watch our pug, Sweet Pea. They care for our girl like she is their own. This was only a two day trip, yet they checked in and even sent some pictures to show how she was doing. what really sets them apart from other sitters we have used is that they care so much for the pets they watch. Sabrina even mentioned to me that Sweet Pea was not hearing as well as the last time she stayed with them, seeming not as responsive. We took her to the vet and it turned out that she had a mild ear infection which she is prone to. I was just so impressed that Sabrina cared enough to raise concerns about our beloved family pet.

My dog is my baby and Johnathan and Sabrina are very loving. Sabrina send pictures throughout the stay. Honey is happy when she is with Sabrina and Johnathan. This is our second year in a row with them.
Jonathan and Sabrina are amazing caregivers and phenomenal people in general. They are extremely passionate about dog rescue, fostering and boarding. They sent me beautiful photos of Bambi having fun at their pet paradise. She had the time of her life...which made me very happy! :-) I also received updates which confirmed what I already knew...that my baby was in very good hands. :-) I highly recommend this loving couple to anyone that is looking for someone detail-oriented to take excellent care of their precious furkids. Another added bonus is that you get 2 people spoiling your pup instead of 1...pawesome! It was a wonderful worry-free experience. I

We dropped off our nervous Lab mix Pasha (who worries constantly about us abandoning him) on a Monday evening, and returned eight days later to find a happy and healthy dog who loved every minute of his stay.

Sabrina and Jonathan are awesome! They sent us daily emails and texts with tons of pictures so we could see what a great time Pasha was having without us and even presented us with a little piece of his pawprint artwork upon return. Sabrina and Jonathan were not only warm and welcoming, but also extremely professional in collecting information to keep Pasha as comfortable as possible. They moved things around to keep him cool during a heat wave and blocked the stairs at night so he wouldn't accidentally fall down an unfamiliar staircase. This was our first experience with Dog Vacay but it certainly won't be the last.

Yes, 5 stars for Sabrina and Jonathan! They were amazing caring for my chihuahuas. I got emails and pictures of my dogs hanging out at their house. I know my dogs were loved, safe and cared for. I have found amazing dog sitters and will use them again.

Give them a try you won't be disappointed.

We had a great experience ( 5 stars) with our Dog Vacay Hosts. We received daily updates on how our dog was doing and pictures too! I would strongly recommend Jonathan and Sabrina. They have a real passion for caring for animals. Thanks to both of you. Reggie says thanks too.

Sabrina and Jonathan were very accomodating to our schedule as to when we were dropping off and picking up Kui. When we dropped her off, I knew I was leaving her in good hands. Kui usually is very timid and shy when she is in a new place but she was already familiar with the area because a month prior, we had a meet and greet (brilliant idea). Therefore Kui already was familiar with the lay out of the back yard/house, and importantly Sabrina and the rest of family. Sabrina emailed daily pics and updates with what was going on with Kui. LOVED IT x 3!!!!! I trust Sabrina and Jonathan 100 percent with my Kui. Kui is definetly loved when she is at their home. Thank you Sabrina and Jonathan!!!!

Jonathan and Sabrina were the greatest! I had e-mails and pictures everyday of my dog. They also had some concerns with him when his right eye didn't look right and let me know about it. I would take him back there anytime. Thanks Sabrina and Jonathan!

Jonathan and Sabrina are the best. I love how they send pics of your pet while your away. It helps give you the peace of mind that your little one is in good hands. Jonathan and Sabrina are very easy to work with and flexible with drop off and pick up times. I've left my dog with them 4 times now and have never been disappointed.

Jonathan & Sabrina took excellent care of my little Elsie! They sent me pictures of her and text messages letting me know she was doing well. They truly love dogs and give them the best care. Sabrina noticed that Elsie was licking her paws a lot and recommended that I take her to the vet to get her checked for allergies. I know they were very attentive and gave Elsie lots of love! I will definitely have them watch Elsie again, and will highly recommend them to others! Thank you so much, Jonathan & Sabrina!

From the moment we met Jonathan and Sabrina we knew our dogs would be in great hands and that they were the hosts for us. They are wonderful people with lots of love to give and treated our babies as their own. We could tell what a great time Guido and Gambino had by how calm and content they were when they came home. Sabrina kept us up to date each day with the cutest pictures ever of our little gangsters! We wouldn't hesitate a moment in recommending Jonathan and Sabrina....they are the best!

This was our pups' bet doggy vacay yet!! Jonathan and Sabrina took great care of our dogs and sent tons of pics everyday. When they couldn't immediately send pics, they would send texts giving me updates. Roscoe and Pinky enjoyed frequent playtime in the backyard, football Sunday, and even took part in some paw-painting!! Jonathan and Sabrina literally took my babies in as if they were their own. And I always felt extra safe knowing Roscoe and Pinky were in the care of professional foster parents who knew exactly how to communicate with our pups. The best part was that Roscoe, our shy Brussels Griffon, immediately took to Sabrina. He cuddled with her and even showed his ultimate sign of affection by stealing her shoes and putting them in his doggy bed!! It was clear from all of the pics that both Roscoe and Pinky had the time of their lives!! I never once felt guilty not being with them. My only concern was if they would still remember me after living in doggy paradise for a week!! My babies will definitely be vacationing with Jonathan and Sabrina again!!! Thank you!!!

Sabrina and Jonathan are fantastic pet hosts. They went to great lengths to make every aspect of our pet sitting experience feel comfortable and professional. Since we were new to Dogvacay and somewhat nervous about leaving our dog in a new environment, they suggested a "meet and greet" so we could meet them and their dogs and make sure that our dog would feel comfortable at their house. We came away from that meeting knowing that our dog would be well cared for in an environment that seems like a paradise for dogs.

Our dog, Winnie, stayed with Sabrina and Jonathan for nearly two weeks. Sabrina emailed us almost daily with pictures and stories about Winnie. Winnie looked happy in all of the pictures and the stories made us feel like she was being well taken care of. While we missed her a lot, we knew she was in a great place. Winnie was super happy when we picked her up-- as though we had never left. Sabrina and Jonathan are very genuine, and we would trust them with Winnie anytime. That says a lot from a couple of overprotective pet-parents! Thank you, Sabrina and Jonathan!

As always, Sabrina and Jonathan took excellent care of our sweet girl as if she were theirs. They send me emails during my trip with pictures and stories so I know how she was doing. They genuinely care about dogs and make you and your dog feel like family. I have used their services three times in the past year alone and will not leave my pug with anyone else while I am traveling!

Five stars all the way! Jonathan and Sabrina continue to be our favorite hosts on DogVacay - our dogs' weekend stay was great, we received many adorable pictures, and as usual they came home happy and exhausted! We feel very comfortable leaving our 2 dogs with them. You will not find a better DV host than these two! Their compassion for dogs is unmatched, and their commitment to fostering dogs and their involvement with local dog rescues in San Diego further proves this. Thanks again!!!

Sabrina and Jonathan were everything I expected from a host. Very nice and responsive. They sent emails and photos during the stay to keep me updated. Definitely recommend to others.
Our Jack is the sweetest and the most adorable dog in the world (to us) and also very very old for a 90 pound lab (16 yrs. old) and needs A LOT of care these days.

Sabrina and Jonathan took care of Jack for 12 days over the Thanksgiving while we were on vacation and for 7 days just a few weeks ago. We met Sabrina only once before we dropped our dog off. She seemed so nice and her house was immaculate but we were still worried if Jack would feel at home while we were gone.

Sabrina was amazing. We got daily emails from Sabrina with pictures of Jack, hanging out with the resident dogs, and Jonathan, taking naps by the fireplace, exploring their yard… Sabrina made an extra trip to the grocery to get Jack’s Glucosamine and had waist bands made for Jack… Jack has weak bladder these days : ( and who knows how many nights Jack must have kept her up!

When we came back to pick him up at 11 PM, Sabrina had everything washed (towels, bowls, and mat) and packed up for us. One sad thing was that Jack didn't seem like he wanted to leave : ( But that also assured me that he was cared for and loved being there.

For those of you who have pets of your own you know how hard it is to leave your beloved pets with anyone while you are gone. Especially if you have pets that require special care like Jack. Sabrina was a godsend and a lifesaver for us. A person without love for animals could not do what she’s done for Jack. And her fee is beyond reasonable !!!

We are so thrilled to have had Sabrina and Johnathan take care of Jack and we all thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.

Hugs and woof!

Sabrina & Jonathan are the best! We are so lucky to have such amazing pet sitters. Our Chihuahua Della, has spent several vacations with them over the past year. We never have to worry about Della being in great hands. When we first started searching for a kennel for Della we were extremely worried. During a bad experience leaving Della with friends, Sabrina & Jonathan came to the rescue taking Della with no reservations and little warning during the Christmas Holiday.

Since then we always leave Della with Sabrina & Jonathan. They are extremely accommodating; they constantly go out of their way to work with our ever changing schedule and will always take Della on short notice. Della loves her vacations at Sabrina and Jonathan's. When dropping her off, the minute we turn on their street she knows exactly where she is and gets so happy and excited!!!

Sabrina & Jonathan send us daily updates and photos throughout Della's stay. Every time we get an update we get super excited and immediately show all of our family & friends. It's great to know she is so well cared for and is having so much fun on her vacay!

We can't stress enough how reassuring it is to know that your pet is not only safe but in a wonderful and loving environment.

We recommend them to anyone looking for a loving home for their pets!

Dogvacay was recommended by a friend. I was very reluctant because only my mother has ever watched my two dogs for extended periords of time the last 4 yrs. Sabrina and Jonathan's profile some how immediatley caught my eye. They have wonderful reviews and many were repeat visits so that was very reassuring. I had a meet and greet and found myself to be very comfortable around them and, they have a lovely and inviting home. My dogs loved the open backyard and took to Sabrina and Jonathan immediately. When I dropped them off I knew I made a good choice. I was only gone for a day and a half but they stayed in constant contact with updates and pictures. I was able to relax and enjoy my mini vacation without worrying about them. I would and have already recommended her and Jonathan to a good friend and we are looking forward to the next visit.

Thanks for the peace of mind.

Sabrina and Jonathan are excellent DogVacay hosts! Look no further! We have trusted them with our pups on a handful of occasions and always been extremely pleased with how responsible, caring, and flexible they are. They are our go-to family on this site for many reasons. We went on a camping trip this past weekend and were delighted to know that our 2 dogs were in good hands and having a ton of fun (evidenced by the many photos I received via email from Sabrina!) :) Their yard is sunny and beautiful and my dogs have the time of their lives running around and playing. They always come home exhausted and happy. Definitely recommend using them if you have a dog boarding need, they are wonderful!

Sabrina and Johnathan are amazing! Our dog Honey was on vacation while we were on vacation. They treated our baby like she was one of their own dogs. Also, Sabrina sent pictures almost daily of Honey's adventures.

We are so relieved that we now have a home that loves our dog while we go on vacation where our dog is safe and loved.

June, family and Honey

Jonathan and Sabrina are awesome! They took such good care of my elderly Schnauzer, I'm pretty sure he didn't want to come home. :-) They sent lots of pictures while I was away, and in every one of them he looked relaxed and happy. They're a very dog savvy couple and their home is a great environment for dogs. If you want the ultimate peace of mind about your dog while you're away, Jonathan and Sabrina are definitely the hosts you want!

Sabrina and Jonathan watched our Pug, Sweetpea. I have worked with Sabrina for over four years; she is a trustworthy individual who genuinely loves dogs more than anyone I have ever met. Their home is very dog friendly and resembles a resort and spa! They spoiled our girl rotten and emailed lots of pictures and sweet stories. It is a comfort to know that I can rely on them to care for such a special member of our family when I can't be home. - Genevieve

Another great experience with Sabrina & Jonathan. This was our 2nd reservation with them and our pups feel so comfortable with them and their home now. As always, Sabrina sent me a few cute pictures of them, clearly having a blast. When we picked them up the following day, they were exhausted, in a good way! I won't hesitate to book with them again for my future dog boarding needs.

We love our dog, Athena. Leaving the country for the winter holidays was hard. Meeting Sabrina in advance was very reassuring- she seemed like such a warm and caring person.

My wife and I had to move around the drop off time. Sabrina was wonderfully accommodating. Athena handled being dropped off with a marked absence of composure. Sabrina graciously welcomed us. Nevertheless, as I drove home to finish packing I felt guilty.

When I got home, there in my email was a picture of Athena getting acquainted with Sabrina and her family! It was reassuring. Every day thereafter we would receive an email with photo's which we fondly referred to as "pup-dates". In fact, when my 10 month old baby was starting to get fussy on the trip I'd pull up these pictures and she would laugh and slap the iPad.

The daily updates spoke of Athena settling in. She seemed extra-needy initially. But, she started to relax- playing with the other dogs, snuggling on the bed with Sabrina, sleeping on the couch, sleeping on the floor, sleeping on her bed, sleeping on Sabrina's bed. That's my dog.

Sabrina and Jonathan were warm and welcoming when I arrived to pick Athena up. Athena was excited to see me. But, she's happy to meet you even if she's never met you before. She came home, greeted everyone and settled right back into her routine- to me, definitive proof that she was well cared for.

Thank you again, Sabrina and Jonathan. You truly welcomed Athena into your family like she was part of it.

George, Sarah, Cami and Athena

My first experience using DogVacay was unmatched! Sabrina and Jonathan were amazing, gracious hosts and my two dogs truly enjoyed their stay with them. As is typical of ‘rescue’ dogs, mine tend to be skittish around new people. Within just a few minutes of our meet n’ greet, our dogs were running around, exploring their beautiful fenced-in yard, and making friends with Max, one of their own resident pets.

We dropped them off for their stay nearly a week later. Within an hour of leaving them, Sabrina had already sent us two email updates, and four photos of them looking as happy as can be. It gave me tremendous peace of mind before my long trip. Throughout the week, she continued to update us on how they were doing, and sent us lots of photos. In the entire process, including meeting, and working out the details of our reservation, she was so responsive, always quick to get back to us, and had so many sweet things to say about our pups!

Another great attribute of going with a couple like Sabrina and Jonathan, is their experience fostering dogs of all different personalities. They are involved in a local organization here in San Diego and clearly have a deep sense of love and appreciation for dogs that meant a lot to me in the process of choosing whom to board our pups with. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Sabrina and Jonathan in the future for any additional boarding needs!
