About Yuen & Jon

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Chestnut Retreat!

Our weekend can be as active as going out for runs and hikes or as chill as staying in watching TV for snuggle time. We have a decent size backyard where your dog will have enough space to roam with our 7 years old Cocker Spaniel, Buddy.

We would love to dog sit for you so you can enjoy your outing. We will text you photos and updates during your pup's stay. All you have to bring is his/her bed (or crate), food and treats and we'll take care the rest! Your pup will be treated like family with tons of walk and play time!

Your pup will get at least 2 walks a day (from our home to the marina – approx 10 blocks each way). If time permits, we will take your dog out for a run or go to the dog park. We will make sure he/she gets plenty of exercise and is feeling at home… =)

Note: We are no dog experts... Simply dog lovers and responsible dog owners.
We are currently accepting dogs under 60lbs as long as they are house trained, ok with children & baby, and is ok without 24/7 supervision and have no separation anxiety ( excessive barking & chewing).

Boarding schedule: We are flexible with drop off and pick up time. But if pick up after 24 hours of boarding, there will be a $35 extra charge for daycare fee.
If peep/poop accident happens, there will be a $10 cleaning fee apply (per day).

Please inquire for availability.

Yuen & Jon gave great care to PJ, our little Beagle. Our little gal immediately found their home inviting and welcoming; no stress at all. Their Cocker Spaniel, Buddy, immediately welcomed her into his home. The two dogs seemed to bond quickly, becoming good buddies.

We received daily photos from Yuen & Jon. In the photos, we saw our little furry gal enjoying life in their care. One night, Y&J's son, Buddy, and PJ spent the night snuggled together, sound asleep for the night!

PJ was very comfortable in Yuen & Jon's care. That means so much to us. We'll book again with them.

Thank you, Yuen and Jon.
So far, Yuen and Jon are my favorite dog sitters that I have used on DogVacay and also on Rover. They are great at communication and really flexible with pick up and drop off. My pup Holly Golightly stayed with Yuen and Jon for 5 days and I got regular photo and status updates! I am always nervous about dropping off my furbaby with strangers but from the meet & greet to actual stay, they were so great to work with. And Holly seemed to have enjoyed the stay, too. They will definitely be my go-to!
Yuen & Jon were great! They were so easy to communicate with and sent us picture of our dog, Gracie, everyday. She seemed perfectly at home with their dog and family. Thanks!
Yuen & Jon were great with our dog Hawkeye. Hawkeye had never been boarded overnight, and he has some minor medical needs. Hawkeye has separation anxiety also. Yuen was especially good. She took the time to listen to our concerns during the meet & greet. She was not intimidated by Hawkeye's "issues". Yuen's positive and calm demeanor was instrumental in Hawkeye's quick adjustment to his stay. Yuen & Jon kept us informed with texts and photos that helped reassure my wife and me that Hawkeye was in good hands.

Thanks very much Yuen & Jon for taking great care of Hawkeye!
Our dog, Koji, had an excellent stay with Yuen and Jon. Although Koji is not the easiest dog and is often skittish, they did a great job at accommodating him and making him feel comfortable. Yuen sent updates and photos numerous times a day, which made being away from Koji that much easier. They are definitely an easy going, dog-friendly family and their 6 yo dog, Buddy, is a sweetheart as well. I would recommend to anyone wanting to use DogVacay.
Yuen and Jon were awesome!! My first time leaving my dogs with anyone but family members. Yuen put my mind at ease within 2 hours of dropping them off. She sent me pics and videos during my whole time gone! I would definitely utilize them again! My two dogs enjoyed them and Buddy! Thank you so much, Yuen and Jon!!
Awesome experience as always!! Owen comes back so happy every time!
Another fun extended weekend for Cooper. He's going to miss Buddy and of course Yuen and Jon now that we've moved away. He always enjoyed his stays at Chestnut Retreat and we'll miss them too!
Jon and Yuen take great care of Cooper and always provide plenty of updates so we know he's having a great time with Buddy!
Cooper loves his time with Buddy and Chestnut!
Cooper always loves his time at Chestnut!
Another fun weekend with Buddy!
Yuen and Jon are excellent!! This was my 2 dogs' first time with them, and one of my pups is old, cranky and a bit high maintenance because of some medical issues that have cropped up recently, so I was nervous and concerned that he'd be stressed out and Yuen and Jon would be stressed out because of him, too. But they took his hang-ups in stride and the pups had a great time! Y&J sent me regular updates and photos each day, and put up easily with my cranky dog's issues and they had fun cuddling with my other, easy-going dog. Their house is great, their own dog is sweet, and their son is a very nice young man. I will definitely go with them again!
Mocha had a long stay with Yuen and Jon while we traveled to South America at the holidays this year. During her 2 week stay, they kept me up to date using What's App with messages, photos & videos.

We had a bit of a scare - Mocha's arthritic hip had her limping a couple of days, but they limited her activity and she was well again before we got home.

Yuen and Jon are wonderful hosts, and their dog, Buddy is a sweetheart.
Cooper now considers "Chestnut Retreat" his home away from home.
Yuen and Jonathan have taken great care of him and he simply adores Buddy as well.
We get numerous updates from them complete with pictures of Cooper and Buddy on their walks, playing or just chilling at home.
We're really glad we found them and so is Cooper - we can recommend Chestnut Retreat without hesitation and will continue to use them as Cooper's vacation retreat!
Yuen and Jon took care of my dog for nearly two weeks this Christmas and I would absolutely have Ruffio stay with them again. They sent me pictures almost every day of all the fun he was having. He was super happy and exhausted when I picked him up.
Yuen & Jon took in my dog on short notice this holiday season. They all had tons of fun and kept us updated w/ awesome photos the whole time. I highly recommend their services.
Yuen and Jon were great with Kahlua, and Yuen even came and picked him up after our wedding ceremony. Kahlua only stayed with them for one day, but they sent us updates and photos and he was in a great mood when we picked him up.
Cooper got another vacation with Yuen and Jon and Buddy - and he had a wonderful time (again). Not only was he well cared for the entire time but we receive updates and pics of all his adventures! He and Buddy get along famously and we're starting to think he'd rather stay at Chestnut house than come home!

We are very happy we found Dogvacay and now have a
"home away from home" for Cooper when it's needed.
Yuen and Jon were great hosts! This was my first time using dogvacay and we were really happy and comfortable leaving our pup with them. He had a great time and really enjoyed playing with their dog. I would highly recommend them as hosts!
This was our first foray into Dogvacay and we could not be happier! Cooper, our 85 lb chocolate lab had a wonderful time with "Buddy" and Yuen and Jon were gracious and accommodating hosts! We received constant photo updates and texts and could see that Cooper was having a blast going to the park, playing with Buddy and otherwise just "chill-axin'" over at Chestnut Retreat.

We would definitely recommend them and will be back again.
Yuen, Jon and Darren welcomed Guinness into their loving family and I could not have asked for a better home away from home. The photos and texts were a great way to stay connected. It was clear that G had a great time. I definitely plan to have them care for our big bear again. Thanks so much!
Yuen & Jon were awesome! It was the first time that I had used Dogvacay, so I was a little anxious. And I was also in a real bind to find a dogsitter on a holiday weekend. Gito had a great visit with them, and came back happy. I will definitely use them again!
Jon and Yuen were absolutely amazing!! Our excitable lab had a great time at their place, and we had constant photo updates showing all the fun he was having. We plan on using them again.
Yuen and Jon are great hosts! Yuen kept me updated on what Theo was doing by providing pictures and video throught his whole stay. I could tell by the pics that Theo was having lots of fun. Theo was so tired when he got home and as they say "A tired dog is a happy dog." I deffinately recommend Yuen and Jon and I would absolutely board Theo here again.
Yuen and Jon are truly wonderful! I feel so comfortable whenever Porter is there and I love the daily updates/pictures. Porter always comes back exhausted because he has had so much fun! :-)
Our experience with Jon and Yuen was great! They took good care of Charlie and sent us pictures every day. We were able to relax knowing he was in good hands. We will definitely call on them again. Thank you!
Yuen and Jon were absolutely awesome! Not only did Toast go to parks and get lots of walks, she got a run, she had a partner in crime in their dog buddy, got love from their son... AND I received lots of picture text updates and felt so so good about how happy she was while I was away. Toast will be begging to go back to Yuen and Jon's place :)

Thank you both!!
