About Ximena

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I am an extreme dog lover!!! I I have two dogs: a female poodle and a female Chi. Both of my dogs are rescues :). We foster and volunteer with APAWS, a volunteer rescue organization. We have had over 30 dogs come through our home as fosters. We love to care for dogs and feel that they are part of the family. I have helped rehabilitate several rescues and help them trust humans again in order to get them adopted to their furever home!

Contact me today to book your next dog vacay or to arrange a meet and greet!

*I am currently not taking puppies or dogs with any aggression issues because I have a little baby at home.

**Drop-offs before 9:00am require an additional night's fee.

***Holiday rates increase to $35-40 per night

Ximena was excellent. We were able to work with her on flexible drop off and pick up schedules, which was helpful with our first stay since we had to leave town unexpectedly. She stayed in communication with us and sent pictures of our pup enjoying her vacay. Dulcinea was well taken care of with Ximena!

Ximena kept Bentley, our 15 month old chocolate lab, overnight while in town for ballgame. She walked him and had him retrieve for excercise. I highly recommend her and will call her next game.
Our pup loved his stay. I think he made a new friend.
Flexible and great to work with
This was my first time using DogVacay and I couldn't have asked for a better pet sitter than Ximena. She took excellent care of my toy chihuahuas and kept me informed through messages and cute pics.
Ximena did it again! I always love that she treats my dog like her own! Second time with Ximena and it's never a disappointment.
We couldn't have asked for a better place our dog to stay than with Ximena. It's obvious she cares deeply for the dogs in her care. We've had issues with boarding our dog in the past where he was stressed and refused to eat. No such problem here. Our boy returned happy and healthy. We will definitely use Ximena again in the future when the need arises.

We selected Ximena because we had several kennel experiences that were unpleasant and stressful for our smooth fox terrier, specifically large dogs in large kennels barking. We were looking for someone in a home with smaller dogs and more personal attention and what we found was a joyful home away from home while were away! The fact that she had rescue dog experience was a plus. She spoiled our dog!! Her home was beautiful and clean and she is professional and happy. We would recommend her to anyone with any size dog!

Ximena took the worry out of leaving our puppy Charlie for the first time. He even got to socialize while he was there, which I know he loved. She also sent an update each day so we could see what he was up to.
Absolute dog lover! Took great care of Sochi and posted tons of pictures!!
Ximena is absolutely a dog lover. This weekend I had to attend my sisters weekend in Houston Texas (memorial weekend) And I was not able to bring my sweet yoda with me. However, I found Ximena and she responded in a timely manner. Not to mention she was willing to take yoda on short notice! I would highly recommend Ximena!!!! She is professional, very kind and will take care of your fur balls like her own. Her home is very comforting which makes any dog feel at home. She always send pictures throughout your dogs stay to keep you updated on your fur ball. I saved her into my contacts and will defiantly let her dog sit my yoda again when I need to leave for the weekend!!! THANKS SO MUCH XIMENA! You're awesome!

She took great care of our baby! Sent pictures of him playing and even let him sleep in her bed! I felt like sochi really was on vacation! I will have Ximena keep our baby next time we go out of town!!!
Ximena B. is so sweet. She treated our two dogs (a tiny senior Yorkie and young boxer mix) as though they were her own. The regular photo updates were great. We were able to enjoy our trip with no worries. I highly recommend Ximena B. :)
