In early 2002, While You R Away® was registered and trademarked with the US Patent Office.

Some years later Beverly Oden, a long-time pet sitter and supervisor for the Ladera location, decided to launch our second location in September of 2010. The While You R Away® West – Laguna location services Dana Point, Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo and surrounding cities. Combined, the Second locations serve more than 1000 clients and over 1,200 pets.

Fast forward to 2014 and longtime clients Jacqui Guenther of Las Flores left the corporate world in the insurance and finance fields to relocate to Northern California where the new location While You R Away® North Northern California was launched serving the Areas of Blackhawk,Diablo, Alamo, Danville and San Ramon.
