Good Sit currently requires a current rabies and both canine influenza vaccinations. We are encouraging all our pack members, private or group, to also have their Leptospirosis, Parvovirus, Canine Distemper, and CAV-1 CAV-2, Canine Parainfluenza, as we do go outside and interact with other dogs from time to time. Many of these vaccinations are available in the DHPP or 5-in-1 vaccination.
Vaccinations are available throughout the Bay Area without vet exams courtesy the services of VIP Petcare and Vetco at their popup clinics, where you only pay for the vaccinations and tests themselves, not the exam. Follow the links to find what clinics are closest to you. Please note that some clinics require making appointments whereas others are a first come, first served basis. (We do not get a kickback from them, we just like them.)
Extra considerations are Lyme and Rattlesnake vaccinations.
Proof of positive titers will be accepted.
*Pickup times are dependent on time of year, weather, and fire forecasts.

Happy Customers

Chris W. with Neo
Steph is ridiculously reliable when it comes to pups… actually she’s ridiculously reliable when it comes to almost anything. She is very organized and accommodating. She has the absolute best personality that makes any pup or person ecstatic to know her! She’s very knowledgeable in all things pups and is somewhat of an animal whisperer. Our dog leaps in joy every time he sees her!! She’s such an honest and trustworthy individual. She leaves things the way she finds them and she even adds to them- we are so lucky to know her and have her watch our pup when she can!

Abby K. with Ozzy and Pasha
We have two large and rambunctious dogs. Steph has cared for them several times when we’ve traveled. She has even stayed at our house when one of them was a puppy and needed lots of care. She is reliable and trustworthy. She absolutely LOVES animals and is super caring and fun with them. She takes them on extra long walks and hikes – they love seeing her!

Alicia T. with Mako
Stephanie was amazing! She sent multiple pictures of my dog throughout the day. I was really worried about how my fear aggressive dog would behave while I was away, but Stephanie eased my anxiety. She worked really well with my dog and was very patient to him warming up to her. I 100% trust her with my pup & would HIGHLY reccomend her to other dog owners.

Giselle G. with Chelsea
Stephanie was amazingly sweet and diligent with our anxious senior rescue. She took time on the meet and greet earlier to get to know her and clearly knows a lot about pets. We are already hiring her again.

Tamara K. with Mia, Misty, and Leo
Stephanie is the absolute best! She gave my two senior kitties and anxious dog so much love and care. The “pupdates” with photos were so amazing and gave me peace of mind during vacation knowing my fur babies were being so well cared for. My dog is looking for Stephanie and can’t wait for her next visit!

The good reviews are pouring in!
