I have had a house full of animals ever since I was a little boy. I have personally taken care of 5 of my own dogs. This includes the bare essentials of walking, playing, feeding, bathing and maintaining the happiness of my dogs. I have a passion for dogs in particular because they are such a care free species. They will show you how happy they are or they can show you that something is wrong.

“Dog hair don’t care!”

Hi! My name is Jennifer. I grew up with dogs mostly smaller dogs like Poodles and Shih Tzu’s. As an adult I’ve owned 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks who both lived to be 12 1/2 years old.

I look forward to taking your dog out so he or she can get the proper exercise they need.

“Top Dog Express”

Hi, I'm Daniel. I grew up in California housesitting for my uncles 3 Pitbull Mastiffs since I was 13. It was a daunting task at first - but over the years it made me become a dog whisperer of sorts. I am an animal lover in general, but K-9's are my speciality. I enjoy nature and jogging. I want to give your loyal companion the best workout possible. I will be thrilled if you let me be a part of your happy K-9 family too!

I have owned and loved dogs since childhood and cared for a variety of breeds over the years. From loving and loyal Pitbulls to sassy German Short-haired Pointers, there isn't a breed of dog I haven't loved! Currently I regularly walk my neighbor's two dogs, a 12 week old Shepard mix puppy and a 6 year old Shepard mix who is also a therapy dog. I enjoy active dogs as well as lap dogs alike, they are all wonderful and special companions who need love and fun while you're away.

Dog Boarding in Irvine

No matter where you go in the United States, you’ll always find plenty of committed animal lovers who dedicate mountains of time and hard work to help out abused, abandoned, and neglected pets. Happily, the Californian city of Irvine is no different.

There are several inspirational animal welfare organizations that support the area’s at-risk animals, and the Orange County Humane Society is one of them. Founded in 1949, this grrr-eat group is on a mission to provide temporary safe refuge for sick, injured, lost, neglected, abused, and unwanted animals. After providing whatever rehabilitation is needed for those rescued animals, the society then places them in permanent, loving homes through its impressive adoption program. 

The Orange County SPCA has had a similarly significant impact on animal welfare in and around Irvine. Founded by a small group of dedicated animal lovers in 1984, this non-profit organization is focused on promoting the humane treatment of animals. To work towards this goal, it provides educational services, financial assistance for animals in need, promotion of the human/animal bond, and intervention in cases of animal cruelty. As it receives no government funding, the Orange County SPCA relies entirely on community support.

Finally, any dog lover who’s spent time in Irvine before may also be aware of the work of I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue. Founded in 2010, this rescue group is focused on helping the dogs that no-one else will help. After rescuing at-risk dogs from shelters, I.C.A.R.E gives them the treatment and rehabilitation they need and then helps them find loving owners. This is often a lengthy and difficult process, but the reward of seeing a dog find a happy home makes all the hard work worth it.
