I was convinced John would be a good fit for our dog at the meet 'n' greet when I saw how his wonderfully calm and gentle demeanor helped our dog feel comfortable with him almost immediately. I appreciated getting his updates during her stay. She was very happy at the end of her weekend and I could tell she had been well exercised. Seems they both really enjoyed going outside together so she could get in plenty of walks and fresh air. I wouldn't hesitate to bring her back again.
John is the best! My 7 month old Boston Terrier puppy Rocco truly had a blast hanging out with him. Right from drop-off, it was evident that John is a natural with the pooches. Rocco was immediately very comfortable, and when I picked him up, he was super happy and well exercised from their walks. When we brought Rocco home, he crashed on the couch with a big smile on his face. I can't recommend John enough!
John was great with our dog Petey. He is 13 years old and has only stayed with family. John helped us when both sides of the family were at weddings and Petey had a great time. He sent us pictures and was so easy to work with. We will definitely be back. Thank you!
This was our first experience with DogVacay and chose John since he had the highest number of repeat customers in our area .... and we were quite pleased with John's dog-sitting. He communicated very well in the time leading up to and during our vacation. We have two medium-sized, < 1yr puppies and John seemed to handle them perfectly. We picked them up this morning only to have them sleep just about all day. I take that to be proof positive that John had them both active and well-exercised. We will definitely be repeat customers.
I have a giant breed dog, who is a giant baby. I was worried about his first stay away with someone other than a family member. There was no need for me to worry. John has a very calming demeanor, which was just what "Mac" needed. Mac came home happy, rested and well fed. John sent me pictures of the walks they had taken, which I really appreciated.
If John will have him, I wouldn't hesitate to have him care for Mac again! Thanks John!

I had a great experience having John board our dog for two days. He was very relaxed with her which made her feel very comfortable with him right away. The reservation process was very easy and he was very accommodating setting up a meet and greet before hand. I would not hesitate to have him board her again.
Molly always loves spending time with John. We've used him on several occasions to sit for Molly and she always comes home happy and relaxed.
John was awesome! This was our first DogVacay experience and John set our minds at ease. He sent us pictures of our lab Benson several times during the 5 day stay. He emailed me with thoughtful details on how our guy was doing. Our dog was relaxed and happy when we picked him up, so I know he had a good time in the country with John. Highly recommend this sitter!
Murphy had a wonderful time! John was great host and went out of his way to make Murphy comfortable. This was Murphy's first time being left with a stranger. The meet and greet ahead of time was a good idea and I was confident that Murphy was going on "Vacation". Murphy's favorite part of the vacation was sitting in the sunshine watching the birds and going for "romps" with John. Thank you John!
John took excellent care of my dog. He sent an email to me with pics telling me how my dog was doing.
I cannot say enough about our Host. Ziggy is a special needs dog. He is diabetic and blind. John took on the challenge with calm confidence, no doubt making Ziggy more at ease. His love of dogs was evident at the outset. He has relaxed and open attitude. I felt perfectly comfortable in leaving Ziggy with him.
Thanks John for taking Lucy on such short notice. I think she enjoyed her other friends. Also thanks for the pics. Elaine & Lucy-lu
Timon had a great time at John's. The first day he had two smaller dogs to play with and his last day there, he had John all to himself! John sent us pictures and gave him a lot of attention. He also dropped Timon off at our house, which was very helpful. We would definitely use his services again!
John took great care of my dog. He emailed pictures of him while we were away. Would have him care for my dog again.
Our dog Jake is a rescue that has been dealing with separation anxiety. Having spent most of his first year in shelter cages, we were reluctant to put him in a boarding kennel. I found John on Dog Vacay and after discussing Jake's needs with John, Jake spent two days having fun. When we picked Jake up, it was obvious that he was "relaxed" from his DogVacay.
I would definitely recommend John as a host and will leave Jake with him again.
Thanks John for taking great care of Lucy. She seemed real happy with her stay with you. I will surely use you again. Thanks Elaine R & Lucy Lu
Once again, Molly had a wonderful time with John and we had a worry free vacation knowing she was in great hands!
John was great with our dogs! He sent us pictures of them enjoying the comfort of his home. They had a wonderful visit with him.
Our little pup was so content and happy staying with John at "Doginn." Thank you, John!
Very kind and soft spoken host for our doggie. Thank you for taking care of him...and keeping him safe from the turkeys! heh! heh! God Bless and wish you many more woofie days ahead!
John was wonderful with Molly. She enjoyed being with him and getting tons of attention. I hope to use John's services again!
John is awesome! Bandit really enjoyed his stay, we could tell from the photos that John sent. Knowing bandit was in John's caste really made it possible to enjoy our vacation. We will definitely be going to John in the future.
Wolfie was very well cared for and enjoyed his time with John. We appreciated receiving pictures of Wolfie partway through the stay - a nice touch! We would gladly have Wolfie stay at the DogInn again!
Tori had a great time. Thanks for the wonderful care of my little girl.
John is a great host and my dogs had an enjoyable time. I will definite use him again!
