About Jay

I am a 100% work from home dog lover! Up until a few years ago, I have always had dogs in the house (my last 2 were Siberian Huskies that we enjoyed for 16 and 12 years respectively).

My wife and I have 4 great kids: Matt is 19 and at St. Cloud State University. Brittany is 17 and a Sr. at Neuqua Valley High School. She is joined by her 16 yr. old sister Mallory. Finally, Kevin is 13 and in 8th grade. All love dogs and will be around to help give your dog the attention they want. It is our love for dogs that gave me this idea.....a way to satisfy their itch for another dog while helping me put some $$ away for their college expenses.

If you want your dog to stay with us, he/she will fit right in with my normal day. I work from home 100% of the time and would love the company. Weather permitting, your dog will receive 1-2 walks per day as well as the opportunity to play in a fenced-in yard as much they choose. I can do my work on my deck while your pet enjoys the freedom and fresh air.

While your dog won't be sharing my bed, he or she can pick whatever room they choose to sleep. They can sleep in their cage or without...whichever you choose.

If you prefer me to come to you, I can cater my work day to your plans. If you want someone at your house all day, I can do that as long as you have an internet connection. If you want someone to come let the dog out and play with it every 2-3 hours, I can do that as well. Let me know what you want/need, and we can make it happen.

I can provide your dog with as much company as you want without it ever having to leave the comfort of his/her home.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Jay and his family were great and very experienced. Our dogs were happy and I would use him again without a doubt.
Jay and Cheryl did a great job with our Yorkie, Polly. I was nervous about booking this trip for Polly because she normally just travels with me. But Jay and Cheryl have a terrific fenced back yard, had 2 other nice canine guests (whom I was able to meet), and were flexible on drop-off and pick-up times as well.

Jay and his family are always a joy and they always take great care of our special dogs. Thanks Jay!
Our two basset hounds had a nice long weekend with Jay, their first time at his home. The original meet-n-greet and reservation process was very smooth. For the visit itself, the drop off and pick up times were very flexible and both dogs were happy and healthy when they came home. We will definitely be back!

Our dog's first stay with Jay and his wife was great!
They had a couple other dogs staying and our dog loved playing with and seemed to be very happy there. They have a good outdoor yard for dogs to run and play and our dog came home well cared for while we were gone!

Great stay with Jay and Cheryl! We have two somewhat unique pups between medications for one and an "outgoing" personality in another - they are always very attentive and are quick to provide updates. Great home away from home for our dogs!
Kahlua stayed with Jay and his family for the first time and had a great experience. Jay sent updates and pictures to let us know that our puppy was having fun. Kahlua and her sister Bella are already scheduled to go back for 10 nights. Dana
Everything was great! It's nice to know our dog would be staying in a very nice home with a big back yard. (better then a cage)
I was very nervous when I dropped him of, but Jay took the time to send me photos, tell me how he was doing, After the first photo I immediately felt much better and thankful that we made the decision to leave our dog there. We could tell from the first pictures that he was having fun , which allows us to enjoy ours.

I feel comforted to know that my dog has a safe place to go the next time we going for vacation, with experienced people who loved animals!
Our first choice for pet care services.
Thank you Jay.

Rosy was very well taken care of and Jay was very accommodating with our changing schedule. Thank you.
Great sitter! Our HIGH energy Shepard was only there for one night and she came home and slept the entire next day! Jay and his family were great. Will definitely use them in the future!
Great communication back and forth, sent pictures when requested, responsible.
Jay and his family did a great job caring for our lab puppy while we were away. They were also very accommodating with pick up/ drop off times and made the whole experience a breeze. We would love to have them watch Boomer again!
Would highly recommend Jay! He kept our two pups for two nights and all was well when they came home - happy and healthy as ever. Great experience!
Jay and his family were great with Maple! When I picked her up she looked happy and at home; she then proceeded to sleep for the entire rest of the day, so I'm assuming that means she was well stimulated during her stay. We will be calling on Jay again!

We were so happy with Jay and his family. We haven't had our new fur baby for a long time so putting her into someone else's hands was a stressful thought. However, Jay and his family made us feel so comfortable that she was going to be in great hands. And guess what - she was!! I got pictures and updates during her stay. She had a blast. Thanks again Jay!! We will definitely be using you again.

Lila loved her stay with Jay. She became buddies with another dog staying there and I don't think she wanted to leave. Jay sent a couple of photos during the week so I could see that Lila was doing well.
Jay was an awesome host to Maggie. He sent me updates every time and took very good care of Maggie. Will definitely bring her back to Jay.
Jay was great! He was very accommodating to our schedule. Piper had a great time and was well taken care of. We would absolutely use Jay again if we are back in the area.
This was Bellas first stay with Jay and his family. He sent photos and notes to let us know she was doing great! She will be going back!
Jay and his family were wonderful with Riley. She was very well cared for. I felt like I was leaving her with my best friends. They made her part of the family. I would definitely use them again anytime.
Jay and his entire family were absolutely wonderful with my puppy Calvin. I received constant updates and photos throughout his stay. I was able to relax about my pup because I could see how happy and well cared for he was during my entire trip. I can't recommend Jay highly enough - would absolutely use him again, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jay took great care of our dog Spot. We were very happy with the special care he gave Spot. He came home a happy and clean dog. Thank you Jay.
Jay was just great with our dog Georgia. He began his 5-star treatment by picking up our dog from our house after we had to make a very early flight for our vacation. He and his family bonded beautifully with our girl and kept us fully informed as to her progress. He finished up by delivering her to our home after we had been delayed by some three hours on our home flight. It was such a delight to arrive at our home near midnight and find Jay and his son with Georgia setting up all of her gear. Not to have to pick up Georgia following our three hour O'hare airport tarmac sit down was just a huge relief and guarantees our reuse of Jay in the future.
