A well behaved, trained dog starts with trust and focus. Practice makes perfect.

DogLove San Diego is exclusively for small dogs under 35 lbs. We offer Day Training, Boarding and Daycare. Our Day Training is tailored towards busy individuals who have hectic lives and are seeking help to make progress more quickly. Our Boarding and Daycare services are an alternative to traditional facilities. With an emphasis on small groups, there are never more than six small dogs at one time.

  • Are you feeling overwhelmed and needing some support as you navigate puppyhood?

  • Does your small dog prefer to play and interact with dogs his own size?

  • Has it been challenging for you to find a reliable, trusted pet sitter?

  • Do you wish you could just hire a dog trainer to do all of the heavy lifting for you?

How would it feel to go on vacation and not feel guilty about leaving them? And, know that they would be stress-free and happy and not return home with any bad habits? We love our dogs like family and when it comes to their care, DogLove offers you endless possibilities and freedom. Our goal is simple. To help make your life a little easier!

Heading out of town and can’t take your dog with you?


Let them stay with us! Peace of mind for you and a “home away from home” for them - a place where your dog can feel safe, learn valuable skills, and also have fun!  



We offer Day Training which allows us to work one on one with your dog to produce faster results.

Erica is that rare combination of very responsible, professional, and thorough, blended with warmth and enthusiasm. Her boarding service is peerless, and her positive reinforcement training is a huge asset. Oh, and her canine partner - Sampson - makes every visiting dog feel welcome.

My dog, Indy, is a rescue with a history of separation anxiety. On the day-to-day, he tags along with me almost everywhere I go. So when I finally decided to go on a trip I couldn’t take him on, I wanted to find someone who understood his needs and who could make him feel at home while I was away. I couldn’t imagine a better person for the job than Erica. She seems extremely experienced when it comes to caring for dogs and made sure that she was the right fit for Indy before I left him overnight. Her home is also very dog friendly, complete with a sunny backyard. I’m almost definitely sure that leaving Indy was much harder for me than it was for him, but Erica handled it with grace and addressed all of my concerns. Over the course of my trip, I received several photos, videos, and status updates from Erica every day, which really helped to ease my mind. Indy ended up having a wonderful time with Erica and Sampson and I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing my pup was happy. I fully recommend Erica and plan to book more reservations with her in the future!

I can’t say enough good things about Erica and her pug Sampson. She is a true professional and dog lover and the whole experience from accommodating my schedule, setting up the Meet and Greet and trial daycare was absolutely fantastic. After five minutes of meeting with her, I knew that she was the person for the job!
