DogYour Pet is My Pleasure!


I am Deb, The Traveling Companion.  In business since 2001, I have been providing professional and loving pet care to discriminating clients all over the Bay Area and beyond.

Always an animal lover, I have owned a variety of pets in my lifetime…..most recently a female basset hound named Molly McBone and a female Beagle named Shayla.  Mollie came to me as a stray and I adopted Shayla from a client who was unable to keep her.

I welcome the opportunity to provide service whenever you need to be away from home and need a loving companion for your furry ones.

When you select my services, you can rest assured that your furry friend will always have the best care and be showered with love and attention.  You can be away from home worry-free when your pet is with me!

Please see our testimonials from demanding pets who've picked us as the next best thing to their owners being there. Let the Traveling Companion be your pet's sitter of choice too. Call or email today for an appointment.


The Traveling Companion's Services:

  • Dog-boarding in my safe and dog-friendly private home
