About Iris

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I've had dogs all my life and just love them. Our golden retriever past away 2 years ago and we miss him so much. We miss having a dog in the house. Our friends always told us they would love to come back as a dog in our house. We live in an adult comm and are retired. I just love them I worry if they are not eating or doing their business. Love when they can sleep with me miss them when
They go home When they come into my house they feel right at home I will watch 2 dogs only if they come from the same family I give them my full attention .when you watch more than one dog even if they say they are dog friendly you never know if they will get along

Casey had such a wonderful time with Iris. She loves dogs and treated Casey as one of her own. I highly recommend Iris and look forwarded to booking with her again.
Iris is the best. Our dog is always so happy and loved there. When we go to pick her up, she's never upset or frazzled like she was when we used a high end pet spa resort. We loved the pictures she sent us while we were away. Will use her again and again.
Thanks so much.
Our Brussels Griffon Maevie fell in love with Iris immediately. On her second visit she could hardly wait to run into Iris's house. We are so grateful to her and the safe and wonderful experience she provided our fur baby. Will definitely use her service in the near future. ??????
We were so happy to have Iris watch our Cocker Spaniel Jake! We could not have asked for a better experience. Iris is a wonderful person and she took excellent care of Jake. He clearly loved her from the start. She stayed in touch with us and even sent pictures. Iris has our highest recommendation, and we look forward to having her watch Jake again.
My husband and I were going to be traveling out of the country for vacation and were having a hard time deciding the best place to leave our puppy, Roxy. We visited many kennels and were getting very nervous about what to do. Thank goodness for DogVacay and Iris! After our meet and greet we knew Iris would be the perfect choice, and she was. She took excellent care of Roxy and I will never worry about having to find a place for Roxy to stay again- She will be with Iris!
Molly had a great stay with Iris and would do it again in the future.
Iris is a very nice lady that you would not hesitate to leave your dog with. Setting up the booking was easy thanks to her very quick follow up. My dog must have gotten an awful lot of love, because he has been in my lap looking for attention ever since we picked him up. I sure he is hoping for another stay soon!
My dog was well cared for and got lots of personal attention. Iris was great!
Iris is a lovely lady who seems to love her clients! Sophie was well cared for and we felt confident that she was in good hands. Highly recommend Iris!
Iris was great. Terrific host fro Abbey. Will definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter.
Once again Iris took care of Nola like she was her own dog. Couldn't ask for better care.
Iris was wonderful with our Asia. She is very patient, and caring. She kept us up to date with Asia while we were away. I highly recommend Iris.
Iris was wonderful. I would recommend her highly.
This is the second time that Nola stayed with Iris. Once again we are completely satisfied. Thank you for taking such good care of her! See you soon
Absolutely fabulous! No need to say more . Nola will be back!! Thank you Iris
Our precious Cody spent his second vacay with Iris this past week. We were so thankful for the love and attention she and her husband gave our baby. Iris is the sweetest and most caring woman. When you leave your dog with Iris, there is nothing to worry about. The next time we plan a trip we will definitely call Iris. She is absolutely wonderful!
Iris took care of Daisy for a couple of days while we were at a wedding, and she did a fantastic job. She is very easy to coordinate with, and she & her husband clearly hit it off with Daisy quite well! When I picked her up after vacay, Daisy was in a great mood and almost looked sad to leave! We would definitely love to leave Daisy in Iris' care in the future. Thank you!
Iris Is terrific! She is very good-natured and loves dogs. We enjoyed our visit during the meet and greet and felt very comfortable making arrangements to leave our dog in her home, she felt like family! When we dropped our dog off a few days later, or beloved pet proceeded to do her business in her lovely home within two minutes of arrival. She has not had an accident since she was a puppy, yikes! Iris handled it beautifully and afterwards Callie was fine and had a wonderful three days in her loving care! We thank her for being so kind and understanding!
We found Iris Jacobson close to home (we live about 5 miles from Iris) because our dog cannot travel in a car because he gets car sick. We were so happy with the Jacobson's care of our precious Cody. They welcomed him with open arms! They were absolutely wonderful and caring with him! He did really well there and they enjoyed him as much as he enjoyed them. Iris is a wonderful person and you can see how much she cares about your baby. We would highly recommend her!
This is our first experience with DogVacay and with our host. We give her 5 stars. Emmy was treated with good care and lots of love. I would not hesitate to use her services again and feel lucky to have found her. Thank you, Iris, and of course to your husband as well. Robin Y.
We are so lucky to have found Iris! She took great care of our 6 year old puggle, Cougar, for a week. We had tried the kennel thing before but knew that he needed more constant companionship for that long of a stretch without us. Iris kept us updated with photos so we knew he was enjoying his stay. We will definitely use them again for our next vacation!
We are super pleased and happy that we found Iris as a host!!! Iris and her husband were wonderful and loving and attentive to our Rambo and we already booked another stay for the future. They are available and at home so your dog will rarely be alone. They are attentive to the dog's needs and provide a safe and warm and nurturing environment for your dog. They tailor the dog's stay for your particular dog in terms of his ways and his hobbies and what he eats and needs. They keep everything the same... as if he/she is in his own home. They understand that your dog is your baby and I assure you that when you meet this warm and kind couple, you will have "peace of mind" to leave your dog with them. Excellent experience. Worry free. Now we can travel.
Very nice home and loving doggy hosts. Bailee had a great time there. She was very well taken care of. I am so grateful to have met these awesome people.
