About Jane

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Max and I love dogs! We would be happy to take care of your pet as if it were our own. Pets add such joy and liveliness to our lives - can't imagine being without them. We had a wonderful Boston Terrier dog, Bella, whom we had to say goodby to in 2013.

Each Vacay day for your dog includes at least 5 walks around our neighborhood plus unlimited indoor playtime at home. We have lots of dogs in the neighborhood so they'll meet lots of new friends.

Both Max and I are semi-retired and work from home so your pet will have 24/7 care.

We are also able to provide transportation to a vet in case of an emergency.

We also offer:
- Additional walks
- Care for elderly or disabled dogs

Looking to board your dog for the holidays? We are available! We can't wait to meet you and your adorable dog!

Another great stay with Jane. Received pictures everyday and Mini came home very happy. Thanks Jane!
Jane was great; reliable, dependable, and our dog loved staying with her. She diligently sent photos of him to us at the same time every day. We were especially grateful to wake up these near professional photographs of our little bundle of joy. We would recommend her to anyone that has a pet sitting need. She is very caring and extremely thorough, she didn't disappoint! We will definitely do business with her again!

Jane is a very nice and calm person. Her demeanor made me very comfortable leaving Zorra with her. She kept me up to date with picture. I would use Jane for Zorra's care in the future.
Jane was excellent with Dempsey. Dempsey came back bouncy and Happy. I will definitely use Jane again.
Jane is a wonderful host. Zoe and Jazzy always enjoy spending time with her. More details are n my earlier reviews.
As always, Jane was very accommodating and Sassy enjoyed her stay. What can we say? Jane is awesome!!
Jane was wonderful! She is obviously a huge dog lover and really took great care of our Frenchie. She was flexible on pick up and drop off times and was very responsive when we were out of town. We'll definitely book with her again soon!
This was our first experience with DogVacay and with boarding our dog Mini with someone other than family.

Jane was absolutely amazing. We were worried because Mini does have some separation anxiety. But judging by how happy Mini was in the pictures (which she sent everyday)and how happy she was when we picked her up, we can tell Jane treated Mini as if she was family.

The drop off and pick-up was seamless. Our return flight was delayed by an hour which caused a very late pick up. Jane was extremely accommodating.

We will definitely be using Jane again if she will have us.

Jane was very easy to work with and had a nice environment for the dogs.
Scotty had an amazing time and looks forward to next visit! Thanks Jane.
Jane could not have been more wonderful. After looking at her reviews on Dog Vacay I had high hopes, and she exceeded every one! I got daily photo updates of my beloved Pom, Parker, and he was happy as could be when I picked him up after his long weekend! I will absolutely be using Jane again, and I'd recommend her to anyone on this site.

Jane was wonderful!
This was Sassy's first overnight stay with Jane due to our previous DogVacay sitter relocating. As we all know, it's hard to leave your baby but Jane was very accommodating and understanding of our little Chiweenie's needs. Sassy is a pampered pooch and if the pictures that Jane sent while we were away for 5-6 days were any indication, that pampering didn't change one bit! Jane was super fabulous and very responsive to our needs due to our intl flight being delayed as well. It will not be the last time that we will leave Sassy with Jane. She was sweet, patient, and very lovable to our pet.

We were using DogVacay for the first but definitely not the last time - thanks to Jane! A very positive experience.
Jane was awesome, as always! Bingo was very happy there!
Jane was great, as always!
This is not the first time we have left our dog with Jane. It isn't easy to leave your dog in the care of someone else, but Jane has done such a great job of caring for our girl. She is responsive and reliable. This reservation was no different. We arranged drop off and pick up. Jane noted all the details upon drop off. We received photos and messages to let us know how the pup was. When we got back, she had her packed and ready to go home.

Its not easy finding a person to look after and care for our beloved dogs so I'm really happy to find Jane. From the beginning to the end, it has been a great experience and so much so, Molly is going back to Jane's for her second stay next week!
So thank you, Jane, for doing what you do .... it makes our vacations so much more enjoyable knowing that our best friends are in such good hands!

Sooo sad we're moving to NJ. Thank you so much Jane for taking great care of Cashew all of these times/years. Cashew, Heather and I love you !!
Thank you Jane. Cashew will miss you!
Always a pleasure leaving Cashew with Jane. Love the pics she sends!
Great stay, as always
Lucky just had his third Vacay with Jane. She always sends us updates with pictures and we can see that he is fine and enjoying himself. Jane also spends time watching TV with Lucky, one of his favorite activities! He is looking forward to visiting with her again and to meeting some new friends!

Jane was a great host and Buddy made some new friends!
Jane was wonderful to work with, from the meet and greet to the stay for my beagle Lucy. She was extremely responsive to emails and questions, and right away my dog warmed up to her and her home. Jane keeps her home very homey and inviting, I look forward to having Lucy stay with Jane again!

Jane is the best!
First off, Jane was responsive and attentive to our pre-reservation needs, which made us feel quite comfortable to start. After setting up the reservation and meeting with Jane, we felt just as comfortable and she was receptive to all of the little idiosyncrasies our dog would pose. Truffles enjoyed her stay, was well taken care of, made a few new puppy friends, and we received daily picture updates. Any time we had questions, Jane was quick to respond. We'll be sure to go to Jane again!

Jane was fantastic. She was super responsive and so kind with Pedro - and me. She sent some great pictures of Pedro each day. I never worried about him for a second while I was away. Pedro played with another dog in Jane's care quite a bit and he was wiped out after I picked him up and brought him home. Thanks, Jane!

Geeta loves hanging out with Jane!
Jane was an excellent dog sitter. She was easy to get in touch with from first contact until we were picking our dog up to take her back home. She was very understanding that I needed some reassurance as this was our first time using a service. She kept us up to date and took great care of our little furry one. I simply could not have asked for more from her.

Franklin had a great time! He loves staying with Jane.
Maggie had a wonderful stay.
Toto always has a great time at Jane's. She is well cared for and Jane is very kind to let Toto sleep on her bed. Quite frankly, Toto seems sad to leave when I pick her up! As long as Jane is available, I plan to use her whenever I am out of town.
Jane and Max were wonderful, as always! Bingo loves going there, and makes himself very much at home.
Ginny had a terrific time with Jane. She was wonderful to work with and sent several photos every day to show how Ginny was getting along. I was worried at first that Ginny might not get along with one dog also staying with Jane at the time, but Jane reassured me they would settle in, and sure enough they did. I would highly recommend Jane as a substitute dog parent anytime!

Jane was wonderful! Will definitely be booking with her again.
Just like the first time, Bingo was very happy with his stay with Jane. He will be going back again, for sure!
Jane and Max are awesome! They took great care of Bingo, and worked well with his rambunctious personality. He was clearly very comfortable with them and was excited to go back for his second time!
Jane and Max are amazing! It was the first time I left my sweet Kelsey with them and travelled without her so it was very stressful. However, Jane and Max made it easy for me. I loved the daily updates. My pup was happy and so was I.
We always take Bentley to stay at Jane and Max's when we go out of town. He is always excited to go and knows their house from a block away (he pulls us up their front steps). Jane sends us photo updates frequently and Bentley always looks well taken care of. When we pick him up, it is always a struggle to get him to leave :)

Jane was great. Gracie was excited to arrive at Jane's and sad to leave.
We are so profoundly grateful to Jane and Max for the wonderful care they provide for Ferguson and Haley when we go out of town. We don't have to worry about anything and enjoy receiving the pictures they send each day. Jane and Max are also very flexible about drop off and pick up times. Last night, because of extremely bad traffic and weather into DC we didn't arrive until late in the evening to get them and they stayed up for us! Over and above the call of duty!

Jane treated Gracie as if she were her own. We will be using her again.
This was Zoe's second Vacay with Jane. As before, it was perfect. Jazzy had not vacated with Jane until this visit. She loved it, as well. Both dogs truly love staying there and I'm comfortable knowing they are happy and well cared for.
Very caring dog sitters
Jettie loves his stays with Jane and Max - when we dropped him off, he bounded up the front walk clealry excited to be back for another vacay! Jane and Max are a real pleasure to communicate with and we always rest easy knowing Jettie is in their good hands.

As always, a caring and attentive stay.
Highly recommended!
Jane and Max were great! This was our first time leaving our pup (one year) and they graciously accepted. My son was eager every morning to see the updated photos they sent and we were happy to know our dog had other canine playmates during our absence. Will definitely use again on our next family vacay.

Zoe stayed with Jane and Max for 3 weeks while we were on vacation. They took wonderful care of her, she met and played with other dogs and the photos Jane sent every day let me know that Zoe was having a good time even though she was away from us. Other reviewers have mentioned how at ease their pets are in Jane and Max's home. I saw the same thing. Zoe was completely comfortable from the first Meet-and-Greet. She will definitely return for another vacay.

Jane and Max took wonderful care of my two dogs while I was out of the country on vacation for almost two weeks. The dogs happily bound into their home when we arrived for drop off and barely noticed when I left. Jane and Max sent pictures and notes on almost a daily basis so I knew that my pups were having fun. When I picked them up, they looked great and were calm and happy. Jane and Max are great hosts and I know that Kelsey and Cody will visit them often in the future.

Peace of mind! Jane and Max have quickly become Stella's back-up parents. This long trip was my first time leaving Stella since moving to the area and my first time using Dog Vacay. After interviewing a few other hosts, I instantly felt a comfort level in Jane and Max's home. After some investigating, Stella just lay down on the floor between me and Jane as we discussed her care. Stella doesn't usually feel so quickly at ease. I knew something special was happening in this home. Jane has a stress-free procedure for drop off and pick up. She sent me the cutest photos nearly every day and filled me in on Stella's daily activities when I checked in with a phone call every few days. I am fully confident Stella was well taken care of and dare I say loved by Jane and Max. I was reminded to write the review when I logged into Dog Vacay to make our next reservation with them. I've whispered to Stella that she's going back to see Jane and I can see a little smile on her face. :)

Second time booking with Jane and Max. They have a beautiful home and genuinely love taking care of dogs.
Our experience with Jane and Max could not have been better. From our meet and greet, it was clear that Jane is a true dog lover. I was able to leave our dog Millie for a week with her without worrying at all. The frequent pictures and updates put me at ease, and Millie came home happy. We would love to have Millie stay with them any time.

This is the 4th or 5th time our little man has stayed with Jane and her husband, and we are so happy he has a home like theirs to stay in while we're away. Our dog had an unexpected medical issue while we were away this time, and we're confident Jane handled it in the best possible way. We're glad he was in such competent hands. They'll be seeing us again next time we travel.

Jane has become our go-to person for taking care of our Lab while we are gone. She is completely responsible. I once gave her the wrong code to get into my house, but knowing Maisy was waiting to be fed and taken out, Jane didn't give up until she got the right code!

Jane and her husband were very nice, great with James! and extremely flexible. We really appreciated them!
I couldn't ask for more wonderful, loving, thoughtful, caring hosts to take care of my dog. The daily photo updates were an amazing personal touch and drop-off and pick-up was convenient and flexible. It was just like a home away from home for my dog and they treated him like their own pet. It was a perfect experience and I hope my dog can stay with Jane and Max again.

Jane and Max were wonderful hosts to my Franny! They were responsive and helpful during the reservation process (this was my first Dog Vacay experience), and so welcoming during the drop off period. While Fran and I were apart, Jane and Max provided updates and photos to ensure Fran was safe and happy (which helped keep me sane on my trip). Once I picked Fran up, I could tell Jane and Max kept her entertained as she was exhausted and slept the entire afternoon.

I will absolutely schedule with and recommend Jane and Max, again!

I can't say enough nice things about Jane and Max. Button enjoys their company and I can relax knowing she is in great hands.
We left Bentley with Jane and Max for a second time, because we had such a great experience with them the first time (just a couple of months ago). Again, as expected, Bentley was well taken care of, and really didn't want to leave (he tried to follow Jane back into her house when I picked him up!). Jane and Max took great care of him, sending photo updates every day. We are so happy to have found them (and so is Bentley)!

Jane is a wonderful, completely reliable host. We have are using her for the third time, and will keep asking her for any time she is available.
Jane and Max are wonderful and true dog lovers. I have two shetland sheep dogs and have now left them in their care twice. The dogs are very happy to go to their home and when I pick them up they are calm, happy and clearly well cared for. I would highly recommend Jane and Max to all.

Jane and Max are wonderful hosts and true dog lovers. Our dog is so keen to be back at their home that he runs up their front steps on arrival.
Jane and Max are just fantastic. Their daily updates and loving care in their beautiful home are a gift. It is a rare gem to find people who you feel instantly so comfortable with. Greatly appreciated by our pup and ourselves!
Once again, Jane and Max took great care of our boy! It is such a relief to know he is in good hands. We received photos of our dog each day, and they even made him homemade dog treats! Would definitely recommend them to anyone.
We left our dog, Bentley, with Jane and Max for two weeks while we traveled abroad. It was our first time using DogVacay and we chose Jane and Max because they had really great reviews. They were very flexible in terms of pickup and dropoff times, which was great because we had international flights. Jane sent photo updates every day and it was obvious that Bentley had a great time. When we picked him up, he was happy and even looked healthier! In fact, when we took him to get in the car, he turned around and tried to go back into Jane and Max's house! We can't recommend Jane and Max enough and will definitely go back to them the next time we need someone to take care of Bentley.

Jane was very friendly and our Boston Terrier enjoyed his overnight stay! We will definitely use Jane again in the future if her schedule allows. She was very accommodating with only a couple of days notice. Thanks so much!
This was the first time we have left our puppy and we did not worry at all. Jane is awesome and we look forward to taking another break with complete peace of mind that our puppy is will be very well looked after. Many thanks.
Terrific! Thanks so much.
Jane and Max were fantastic. They came to walk and feed Maisy at my home right after she was spayed, and so needed to have her activity restricted. They took good care of her as she healed. I will definitely call them whenever we need help.
Gracie had another great stay with Jane and Max! Nice to know we don't need to worry about her when we are out of town.
We are new to the D.C. area and were very nervous about taking a vacation without Lola, our LH chihuahua. She's 8 and experienced quite a bit of stress when we moved here (from Texas), so we didn't want to stress her out further. We set up a meeting with Jane prior to our vacation to make sure she was a great match for Lola and Lola a great match for her. This was a great idea, because we felt so at ease after meeting Jane. Lola did great during our vacation and Jane sent us pictures once a day with a little check up note. When we picked Lola up, she was happy and didn't have any signs of stress. We will definitely use Jane (and Max, her husband) again in the future. They are so nice and really cared about Lola.

Jane and Max were absolutely wonderful! She sends picture updates of my fur baby every day and is very flexible. They will continue to be our go-to dog vacay for Isley!
Jane and Max were fantastic! They put me at ease right away and sent me pictures of Pogo while I was out of town. I will definitely be using them again.
Jane and Max were very welcoming and accommodating to our little dog. We were so lucky to find them! Thanks so much!
Like many people, I was apprehensive about leaving my dog behind when I went on vacation. So apprehensive that I checked out three other places before I decided to leave my cocker spaniel with Jane and Max.

I'm sure I made the right decision. Before vacation, the hosts were very easy to work with -- I was able to schedule my "meet and greet" the same day, at a time convenient for me. During the vacation, Jane sent me photos so I could see that my little one was happy and being treated well -- there was even a photo of him sitting proudly on their couch, proof positive that the hosts were true dog lovers. And afterwards it was obvious that my dog was healthy, happy...and clean! They must have given him a bath while I was away.

I'm truly impressed, and would recommend Jane and Max to anyone.

Gracie seemed to have a wonderful time. Jane sent lots of photos of Gracie looking very relaxed and at home. We really appreciate the great care that Gracie received and we're already planning our next dog sitting weekend with Jane.
This was our little boy's second stay with Jane. She is very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times and always responsive to phone calls and messages. Great communication and very easy going, thanks again and we will be back!
Beau and Louie had a wonderful experience with Jane and Max! They were so calm and relaxed when we came home; it was awesome. Jane and Max are great hosts and we will use them again and recommend them without hesitation.
Within one minute of meeting Jane and Max we knew that our Nuno was in kind, loving hands. Nuno knew too!

We are first timers with DogVacay and were unsure of what kind of temporary home we would find. That confidence that our dog is staying in a loving home made such a difference while on vacation. Jane shared photos of Nuno at rest and play during his two-day stay. She had even already walked him when we picked him up at 8:20 am on Monday morning. I cannot think of anywhere else I would want our "mellow fellow" chihuahua to rest his paws than with Jane when we return to DC.

Thank you Jane and Max for taking care of our little boy! This was our second time using DogVacay, and our first time with Jane and Max. They took excellent care of our Italian Greyhound, sent photos of his time at their home, and treated him like their own! Thanks and we will be back!!

In the past, I never had to worry about dog care when we travelled as we had a live-in sitter so this was going to be Ferguson's first experience away from home. I knew Jane and Max had lots of experience and I thought he'd be OK, what did not anticipate is that he was SO happy and comfortable with them that he barely paid any attention to me when I walked in to get him after a week. He was too busy playing with his new Italian Greyhound friend! It was just fantastic to see him so happy, healthy and having fun. I couldn't have hoped for a better experience for him. As long as they can take him, this is where I'll leave Fergus!

We had a wonderful meet and greet with Jane and Max. Their love of dogs was so clear. They have a relaxed and caring style that was very comforting. Sage had a great day with them and was a very happy guy. I received a photo update and Jane let me know how Sage did. I will surely contact them again to watch my little guy.

Diego had a wonderful stay over Memorial Day Weekend with Jane and Max! They were so warm and welcoming from our meet and greet to when I dropped Diego off, and I loved seeing a few photos of him in my inbox throughout my trip. When I picked him up I could tell he had enjoyed his Vacay! I would be so glad to have Diego stay with Jane and Max on my next trip!

Fantastic! Jane went above and beyond for our little puppy. It was such a relief to know someone caring was there while we were away. I definitely recomend Jane.
They are very flexible to accommodate pickup and drop off times. They take excellent care of our dog.
Weekend worked out very well. Kip came home happy, healthy and tired.
Kora Roo enjoyed her week-long stay with Jane and Max. They are true dog lovers. Their house has ample room for dogs to play and cozy furniture for them to snuggle into. I loved getting the photo updates while I was away!
Jack and Izzie absolutely loved Jane and Max. Jack has never really enjoyed staying away from home before but Jane and Max with their experience and love made him feel perfectly at home (Izzie too). I can say this thanks to the wonderful photos and footnotes we received while away.
Jane was particularly gracious when I presented her with a very long list of my concerns ( I am always nervous when leaving the dogs), however I really should not have worried. I can't stress this enough. Jane and Max are so experienced working with and loving dogs that when we came home I think Jack and Izzie wanted to go back!

Snoopy just loved Jane and Max! He was "dog tired" when we picked him up so we know he had a great time with them and the other dogs that were being boarded at the same time. We will definitely leave Snoopy with them again when we have to go out of town.

Jane and Max are wonderful and caring pet sitters! Jack was completely tuckered out by the time we got home! It's such a weight off my mind to know Jack was in good hands while I was away.

I particularly appreciated Jane's flexibility when my flight home was changed and I ended up arriving several hours later than anticipated to pick up Jack. A lovely host and a happy pup--another reason I love Dog Vacay.

Jane and Max are great and Sweet Dee loves them!

This is the second time we've boarded Sweet Dee with Jane and Max and they've been awesome. They're totally flexible with drop-off and pick-up times and always send great pictures of Sweet Dee to us.

We'll definitely board Sweet Dee with Jane and Max again!

Jane and Max were amazing! my beagle is a little older and can get nervous around new people but Jane and Max were amazing and provided a peaceful and loving home. Very caring and very attentive hosts.
Very nice people and they are very easy to work out scheduling drop off and pickup times.
