About Denise

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
PLEASE NOTE: At this time, I am only booking visits from previous clients. THANKS.

I'm a dogmom who works from home, a cozy place in Santa Monica, CA, which means I'm able to give the dogs lots of attention as well as accommodate their needs and schedule. There's a fenced yard and we go on daily outings for leash walks or dog park fun.

Your pup (25 lbs or less, please) will enjoy hanging out with Ivy, a spunky girl who loves to play, and Ollie, a sweet boy who loves little dogs.

I got my first dog in 1994 and have had at least one ever since, along with the occasional foster dog with medical issues or a neighborhood stray in need of a hug, food and a warm bed till they could be reunited with their loved ones. I'm very responsible: your dog will be safe and happy here. I love having dogs around and would welcome yours as another member of my pack.

Denise is the best! My dog jumps out of the car and runs straight into her house.
Denise is the best! Pepper is home after another great stay with Denise and her sweet resident dogs Ollie and Ivy. Denise has always been so good with Pepper, (and with us! sending cute pictures for peace of mind!), and Pepper always comes home happy and well-adjusted. We deeply appreciate Denise's wonderful care!
Denise is always really good with our dog. Her place is great for dogs. I would definitely recommend her.
Denise is great with my dogs! I can tell they get a lot of exercise and attention! This is my second time having her watch them, and I look forward to sending them to her again.
Denise is absolutely wonderful! While my husband and I were out of town, we felt completely comfortable having our dogs in her hands. She sent email updates with photos, which we really appreciated. Our dogs were very happy, and so were we!
Denise cared for our small dog for several nights during our Wedding week/weekend, and was a wonderful host! She was warm, quick to communicate, and even sent us some adorable pics of the dogs snuggling up to put our minds at ease while we were away. Her dogs are really friendly; Pepper loved playing with them and came home a happy pup! Highly recommend!
Fanstastic! Super responsive and easy to deal with. Dog had a great time! No issues whatsoever. Highly recommend.
Denise was very sweet and friendly. She provided updates during our trip and our dog, clyde, came home a happy pup!
Denise did a great job dog sitting Kahlua! She sent me photos and emails with updates, which were all very helpful. Kahlua even snuggled with her the first night! She make sure he went on fun walks and outings as well. I would highly recommend Denise!
Denise watched our dog over the Christmas break, and we were very happy with her. She was very flexible with dropoff/pickup times and was always quick to respond to messages.

Her place is perfect for dogs; it has plenty of trees and a back yard with a high fence. Her dogs are very friendly and got along well with our dog. We would definitely recommend Denise.
