About John

I am an experienced dogsitter and offer personalized overnight dog boarding as well as doggie daycare.

I work from home and provide 24/7 care. I take a maximum of 2 dogs at a time and deliver highly personalized service.

I live 2 blocks from the beach and within several quiet neighborhoods that are ideal for safe, interesting dog walks.

The daily routine here includes 1 longer walk and 2-3 shorter ones per day. Additional potty breaks as needed. The number and distance of walks can be adjusted to meet your dog's needs. The longer walk is normally on the beach.

Dogs are normally fed 2x per day or as otherwise instructed. Treats given as you direct. I can give pills or other medications, as necessary.

My home is a 2-bedroom duplex on two levels. The house is very clean, safe, and dog proofed. Things are well organized for entertaining dogs. There are clean, high quality dog beds here or you can bring your own.

I will send updates and pics throughout your dog's stay.

Chloe and I both had a fun stress free weekend thanks to John! Her and Choco got along right away and had fun all day.
John is very friendly, and kept us informed all day about how our dog was doing with him. I would definitely take our dog back to him for care.
We first met John when walking our Zoey on the beach. He was nice and genuinely interested at that time as he was also walking his own dog. When it came time that we needed to board our girl for a few days, we looked at Dog Vacay and recognized John! We were excited as we felt we already knew him and he already knew Zoey a bit. We dropped her off Friday evening and picked her up Monday morning. During her entire stay with John, he constantly kept in touch with us texting us updates on how she was doing along with photos and videos. We felt so comfortable knowing Zoey was in such caring, good hands. She had the opportunity to socialize with John's dog and another dog he was boarding and did well. John treated Zoey so well and she seemed so content with him. If you're looking for someone to take care of your dog as if they were his own, John's the best!

John was wonderful! Not only did he agree to watch our dog last minute, but he made her stay so wonderful. He walked her on the beach each night and he sent us daily updates and photos. We feel so lucky to have found John and would highly recommend him to anyone needing a pet sitter.

We never boarded Lucy so we were a little nervous! John went out of his way to assure us she was doing fine. He text daily some days more than once and sent us pictures of her daily would highly recommend him to leave you special 4 legged family member with! Thanks John for taking such good care of our girl!! Tim and Cindy Berkebile!!

Excellent, fun day for Tyson! He was very happy (and tired) from a fun day with John and Choco. John was great with Tyson and I hope we can see him again some day when we're back at Amelia Island!
My 2 small boys are a handful, but John took great care of them. They enjoyed John's dog, Chocco,
and seemed to get along great. John went above and beyond, exceeding our expectations. Loved getting the emails and photos, really gave me peace of mind. Would use him again, and recommend to friends. Really Great!

Bailey had an excellent visit with John. He gave her nice long walks which she loves. We called only a night ahead of time and everything went very smoothly. I received an email update along the way-always appreciated.
Our dog Drexie stayed with John for the second time. He is so good with her and she is spoiled rotten there, it is like going to dog grandma's house! He always keeps me posted thru emails on how she is doing. He walks his dog Choco and Drexie several times a day and she loves to go to John's house when we are out of town, he is the best and close to the beach so she gets some "beach time" too!

John met our expectations, he went over and beyond by sending us daily reviews, pictures of what they did during the day. They took several long walks a day and our dog loved being with Choco, John's sweet laid back dog. So happy we found John, a great place to leave your dog so they can vacay too !
