Los Angeles safe, exclusive, cozy, customized, luxurious, and fun alternative to dog kennels and pet sitting: Fun Paw Care’s dog boarding service
COVID-19 update: We are OPEN. Please read my blog post regarding the coronavirus and how it affects your dogs and cats. Also, how my Phone/Skype/Zoom consultations can help you tremendously and why it is essential to continue dog training, and boarding (with social distancing).
According to The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), and the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA), there is “No evidence that COVID-19 can be contracted from pets”.
You need to travel, but you also need to do it with a clear conscience. That’s hard to do if you’re not certain your best friend is in the best hands, getting the best pet care around. At Fun Paw Care in Los Angeles, our goal is to provide a dog-boarding experience so posh you wish you could trade places with your dog.
We call it “dog boarding” because that’s how people often refer to it, but that term doesn’t nearly convey the pawshness. It’s the ultimate dog spa vacation. Your dog’s temporary vacation spot is private, spacious, and immaculately clean. Private one-on-one walks and adventures with a certified dog behaviorist, massages, playtime, music, and aromatherapy are just a few of the perks. Your dog gets 100% personal care and attention from a renowned pet expert Russell Hartstein, who’s a Certified Dog Behaviorist, Trainer, and Nutritionist (one of fewer than 200 in the world).
Because of Russ’s background as a premier dog-behavior expert and dog trainer, every activity will weave in at least a little “behavior-building.” Your dog will come back from vacation not only a much more relaxed, enriched and fulfilled but happy, healthy and with better behavior!
Your dog will experience the kind of luxury people have long thought of when they think of Los Angeles. Because it’s a high-touch, exclusive service, our dog-boarding service is exclusively for Fun Paw Care Members.
However far you’re traveling, your dog’s “vacation home” isn’t far from his or her forever home. Los Angeles best dog boarding is near you if you live in Malibu, Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, Downtown LA, Santa Monica, Venice, Manhattan Beach, Westwood, Marina Del Rey, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, Hollywood, Palos Verdes, or elsewhere in Greater Los Angeles.
Besides that it’s a private, one-on-one, in-home dog boarding service, here’s what makes our dog boarding experience a perfect fit for your dog (and you):
Good dog parents get the big stuff right. Great dog parents also care about the details. If you’re already wondering how we handle the “little stuff,” we applaud you.
We always put safety and compassion over convenience and cost. Our home is designed with a dog’s senses being paramount. For example:

I’ve not seen a trainer with his level of experience and ability in my almost 20 years of practice in South Florida. For the people and pets that make up the VCA Animal Hospital family, there’s no one we trust more with dog training, care and behavior issues than Russell and Fun Paw Care…
Dr. Mike Tenzer, VCA Animal Hospital
As a veterinarian I have known Russell for some years… His dedication, professionalism, depth of knowledge and passion for animals are evident…The techniques he utilizes and teaches are clear and effective… I am over the moon to have his help and will not hesitate to recommend Fun Paw Care to all my clients, family and friends.

Wow, Russell is proof that you don’t need to have a heavy hand for dogs to learn quickly. You’re amazing, we’re converted! Thank you so much, for your help.
