Meet Our Team
Hey Friends! Welcome to Surf’s Pup!!
My name is Janis and I am the Founder and Owner of Surf's Pup! Surf’s Pup Doggie Lounge came to fruition over the last decade in my previous career practicing medicine. I graduated Yale School of Medicine in 2010 and spent my medical career taking care of humans on the front lines in Emergency Medicine, Trauma, and Acute Care Surgery through the end of 2018.
Throughout my time as a practicing Physician Assistant, I survived some of the most challenging times with the comfort and unconditional love that only a dog can provide. A bad day in the ER could be alleviated with a few slobbery kisses and happy wiggle butts that always greeted me when arriving home!
Over the years I have come to realize the importance maintaining a healthy work life balance, and as a previous working professional I know how hard it can be to take care of our pets while also taking care ourselves. My overall goal with Surf’s Pup is to help YOU find your healthy daily balance by helping take care of your pup in a safe, loving, and FUN environment while you tend to your busy lifestyle!
Surf’s Pup Doggie Lounge is here when you need with an “On-Call” Doggie Day Care option for our clients, several hiking packages that can be tailored to meet each dog’s specific needs, and we offer solo Adventure options for dogs that need more one-on-one care and attention. We NEVER discriminate based on breed (we love our Pittiebulls!!) and we welcome all doggies of all ages and sizes all the time!!
When you book with us, you are instant Surf’s Pup family, so call or text us today and let’s get to playtime!!
Hi I am Susan! I have a love of dogs that goes back a lifetime! I live in restricted housing, and not able to have my own animals currently, and love to help with in home care of your pets. I have local customers and friends who trust me to care for their babies as I would care for my own. I am Aunti Sue to so many lovies in the area. I also provide care for special needs dogs and other pets.
Susan is also the very important DOGmother for the Surf's Pup Doggies, Mystertee and Lily!
"Hey Janis, just wanted to let you know we used Susan to take care of our dogs when we were gone. She was great!! Thanks again for the referral. My one dog had acl surgery about 3 weeks before we left and she did great with him and was willing to do whatever it took." ~Alan, happy client

Hi, I’m Jenny + I live with my sweet husband + two hilarious kids. We have spend a lot of time outside + have a ridiculous amount of fun together. I’d say the only thing we are missing is a pet of our own. To get our dog fix we will often volunteer to watch friends dogs + walk neighbor dogs. We will welcome your dog into our home with lots of attention + exercise. And don’t be surprised if they end up on our family Christmas card :)
I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii and have loved and cared for all types of animals my entire life! There was never a dull moment in my house growing up because of all the pets we had - a guinea pig, bunny, cats, a dog, a bird, a tree frog, and even Jackson Chameleons. I was mostly responsible for taking care of our dog, Lily, which taught me a great deal about the time and effort that goes into properly caring for a dog. Lily was a great companion to hang out with during my summer vacations and weekends at the beach. When I moved to Santa Barbara in 2014 for college, I missed her company and began pet sitting for my coworkers and clients I met through Rover. House sitting was my favorite side job because I got to have my own space for studying, and also got to enjoy the company of animals. After graduation in 2018 I moved to San Diego, where I currently continue to care for animals until I am able to get my own dog some day!
