About Jael

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, there! And hi to your human too! Welcome to my Playhouse!
My name is Charlie. I'm a Rhodesian Ridgeback. My mom says that's Dog for "gentle giant." I'm two and I live in this wonderful playhouse apartment that's filled with toys, treats, and games with my sister Luna, a six-month-old kitten. We're both rescues, and we're looking for playmates! If you're taking a look at my services, chances are you need a friend while mom or dad are away. You don't want to be home by yourself and you'd rather not walk all by your lonesome. I wouldn't want to walk all by my lonesome either!

Have your human take a look at my Playhouse services. We offer boarding and day care and can:

-Take walks together! My Ma takes me out on walks around the neighborhood, which is quiet and residential. We also have the option of walking by the lake and the park. We usually go out at least four times a day, but sometimes more.

-Play fetch together, or even tug-o-war together! The Playhouse is filled with toys, but you can bring your own if you want.

-Nap together! The Playhouse is filled with comfy napping surfaces, from cushy couches with pillows, to soft chairs, and we're allowed on them all! Ooh! Before I forget. There's a watch-spot in the living room to monitor enemy squirrels. You can squirrel-watch with me. It's the best.

-Share the love and care of my devoted Ma! She's been a dog-owner and nurturer for 17 years, and her experience spans the gamut from puppy-hood to adult to senior pets. She knows how to care for healthy dogs and sick dogs, blind dogs and seeing-but-not-eye-coordinated dogs.

-Bathe! My Ma will bathe you if your human decides to add that as a service, but you’re on your own on that one. Sharing bathwater is gross.

So what do you think? Let’s set up a meet-and-greet* and let the playtime begin!

*Meet-and-greets are required prior to booking. Pet must be comfortable/friendly with resident pets. Overnight stay recommended for vacays longer than 5 days .

Jael and her partner are amazing pet owners and the sweetest people you will ever meet! They have rescued two very sweet pets: Charlie and Luna. Both owners have had previous dog experience for about 17 years.

Your pet will enjoy lots of lounging places in their home with great opportunities for amazing photos. Jael works from home and will offer supervision for your pet while Charlie and Luna will engage your pet in play time and snuggles!
In seven years of pet ownership I have boarded at a lot of places -- individuals, family members, facilities. Jael provides truly exceptional care. In fact, she is hands down the best I've ever worked with. She was on the ball, flexible, and provided very attentive and loving care for my dog. Jael is clearly not just in this for the money. Rather, she loves animals and takes satisfaction in caring for them.
Jeal Is the best! My humans Left me for a wedding in someplace call El Paso, TX. for a WHOLE WEEK!!! can you believe that? I wasn't to thrilled about it spending all this time with a stranger,but I met an awesome companion in charlie and the little cat luna. We went to the beach, walked a lot. Played forever. Jael took tons of pictures for something call updates. anyway her place was cozy and safe for me! and she never left my side? I wonder what my human were doing, did they worry about me.... who cares I HAVE CHARLIE!!! Oh.. my humans are taking me for a walk now , I would love to go back when they go to the BIG APPLE that sounds delicious!

Jael was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her home was absolutely clean and her big dog Charlie was actually a well trained gentle giant. Jael sent me pictures and videos throughout the day to update me on how my girl was doing. Jael took her on lots of walks and had toys for her to play with. She even got to sleep in the bed with Jael :-)

Great job Jael. I'm definitely coming back.
These are the reasons why Jael deserves a 5-start review and should be your preferred host the next time you need to book a host for your dog:

1. Jael responded very quickly when I asked for a meet and greet. I think this is so important because she also has a dog, Charlie and a cat, Luna and Jael knows the importance of my dog Marshall being compatible with Charlie and Luna. Charlie and Marshall were just fine by the way. We reserved right after the meet and greet. Also, being a dog owner herself adds to my comfort level leaving Marshall with her.
2. Two days before drop off, I got a reminder message of the upcoming reservation. With the email were the dates of the drop off and pickup so everyone is on the same page. Also, she has a list of everything to bring so Marshall is comfortable while he is on Dogvacay. I appreciate that. I am a list maker myself but it's nice to be reminded just to make sure I did not forget anything.
3. During the whole time Marshall was with Jael, we get updates at least two times a day with pictures and videos of Marshall to assure us that he is doing fine. They also took Marshall on long walks and Marshall loves long walks.
4. It is a plus that Jael has a dog, Charlie, so Marshall has a companion to play with all the time.
5. On a personal note, Jael lives right next door to us so drop-off and pick-up was a breeze. Lol!

So next time you are looking for a really good host for your pets, reserve with Jael.

Tommy LOVED his stay with Jael! She was so accommodating, even with Tommy's anxiety issues, where at the end of the vacay he did not want to leave! She sent multiple pictures and videos everyday and loved my dog as much as I do. He also made great friends with Charlie and Luna! I can't wait to schedule future playdates and vacays with her! She's extremely reliable and will make your pet feel right at home :)
