Best alternative to kenneling somewhere. Jessica sent pictures and videos throughout the vacay and was quick to respond to any messages I sent. I felt so comfortable leaving my dogs here! I will definitely check here for openings before looking anywhere else! Also, my normally hyper dogs slept the entire day after I picked them up!
Jessica and Jay are amazing sitters. Not only were they able to fit my sons dog in at the last minute they were very reassuring so he could enjoy his NewYears trip. They even sent photos of Remi so we could see how much fun he was having!! After two days on Vacay, Remi came home exhausted from playing so much. Thank y'all very much for taking such great care of Remi. We will be back for another stay.
Awesome family that treated my pup like one of their own! I love the setting and also the special care my great dane got when she had a bit of separation anxiety. Would definitely leave her there again!!! They truly love the dogs and my dog didn't seem to want to leave!
Ike loves going to this "home away from home"! Jay and Jessica take great care of our fur baby, and it's so nice that he has such a beautiful area to explore and other pups to keep him company. Highly recommended!!!!
I loved leaving my pup with Jay and Jessica. I could tell that my pup was super pleased. I appreciated that Jessica sent me pictures as well. I will absolutely use them again.
Just know that their house is definitely in the country, and it is beautiful!
Having just lost our other dog a few weeks ago, our great dane was nervous and timid and going through some separation anxiety issues. Jay and Jessica gave her special attention and helped her have a fantastic time. Their setup is perfect - loads of acres for the puppies to roam, yet they always know where they are thanks to their GPS collars. When we picked her up, she was smiling and happy to see us, yet she still kept running back to Jay and leaned against him for a "hug" like she really wasn't sure she wanted to leave. I highly recommend these guys for any size dog. Gracie was definitely part of their family for the days she stayed with them and even slept with them when she was uneasy at night time and we had not come back for her. Love these guys and what they have done for my dog. Will definitely use them again! Thanks so much Jay and Jessica for the great update on how she was doing also!
Great place and people.
Incredible place with passionate people. Can be quite flexible with individual drop off and pick up times. My pup had the time of his life and didn't want to leave. Would highly recommend this place to anyone in need of good boarding option.
Jay and Jessica are awesome! Extremely friendly, flexible. They respond to messages very quickly.

Our dog, Summer had a wonderful time staying with them when we had to go out of town. They have a huge property, and other dogs that Summer loved playing with. I was more at ease with her staying on such a large property knowing they use GPS collars on the dogs so they can find them if they wander off.

We just booked her 2nd stay with them and I'm sure will be using them many times in the future!
Mollie had a blast while staying with Jessica and Jay, and I was able to enjoy my time away because I knew she was in good hands. They sent a picture and an update and treated her like family. I will most definitely have her stay with them again
Boo is a standard poodle who was adopted and has had a few issues. He's come a long way but one of the things that I was worried about is the way he interacts with other dogs.
My fears were put to rest after the meet and greet with Jay and Jessica. When I pulled up and they came out with their pack I was a little nervous, especially when a pitbull is part of the pack. After the pack introduced themselves they all just chilled out and let Boo walk off his nervous energy. Boo and Sunny (pitbull became friends) and to my surprise when I picked him up he was happy and came over with the whole pack. He was so at ease that he laid down outside while the other dogs came over by me. that is something that would never happen. A word about Sunny. She is the sweetest dog. If you have negative feelings or concerns about pits she may be the one to change your minds.
Review: Great people, great dogs, and a great place for your dog to stay. It really is doggie heaven.
Thanks Jay and Jessica!
Jay and Jessica took such good care of BJ. They have a lot of property and a lake right in front of the house. They have 4 dogs and BJ loved hanging out and playing with Sunny. The dogs are allowed outside on their own to play at will but they have a GPS collar on so they don't run too far. So it's very safe as long as they have the collar on. Their daughter Talia is great with dogs and BJ totally adored her and the baby as well. They sent pics and videos of BJ and kept us updated. They were great even though BJ chewed up a remote, some shoes and pooped in the house! BJ had a great time and he can't wait to go back!
Thank you for hosting our Boxer, Bella. She obviously enjoyed herself, she really didn't want to leave. Your pack really helped her with her shyness. We would definitely bring her back again if we are travelling through the Vicksburg area. Thanks again for providing a safe and loving environment for our girl.

doggies always happy and tired out!!
As always, they're the best! My kids LOVE spending time there!
Jay and Jessica are great! They obviously love animals and I'm happy my dog Bo got to spend some time with their pack! Their home is truly a Doggie Heaven! That's why I also felt guilty taking Bo away from them, when I picked him up. The second time I dropped Bo with them, I could tell he was getting excited to be back when we were driving up their driveway! I was happy Bo got a chance to really be a dog for a while out there at their wonderful place!
Jay and Jess were so great and very flexible. My dog had so much fun!
Jay and Jess are the absolute best! My pup loves staying here so much!
Another perfect stay with Jay and Jess!
This is the very best place to leave your dog when you travel! My biggest concern was that our dog would not want to come home and I was right!!! We are so happy to have finally found a place to take our dog where she will be happy and well cared for.
Jay and Jessica took amazing care of our sweet Delta. I was a little worried at first because we have never done anything like this, but they were so sweet and helpful, which made it so much easier. Delta loved running and playing with the other dogs on all their land. I was worried she would wonder off, but Jay and Jessica put a GPS collar on her and wouldn't let her stray too far. They sent me updates and pictures of how Delta was doing everyday. It has always been a struggle to find someone to keep Delta when we had to go somewhere, but it's not anymore. I recommend everyone send their dogs to Jay and Jessica. They are AMAZING!
He had a great time. He was worn out when he got home. Such a relief that he wasn't kenneled. I understand he managed to sleep in the bed with Jay and Jessica. Will use them again every chance I get.
Jay and Jessica have the perfect setup to leave your dog or pup. They are both incredibly experienced when it comes to care in general AND they have the perfect environment for any dog - i.e. endless room to run / play, not to mention your dog will be treated like one of their own.

We have a high energy border collie that craves both human attention and lots of exercise and stimulation. Jay and Jessica's house was awesome for our dog Bear (I was worried he wouldn't want to leave).

We live in Dallas and were in the Jackson area for the weekend, but we will certainly be using Jay and Jessica again if the opportunity presents itself - could not recommend more highly.
My pup came home tired from all her adventures! I got the cutest pictures of her from Jess while I was gone.
I always know my dog is in good hands with Jay and Jessica!
It's such a treat for my dog to be able to stay with Jessica and Jay!
The best dog sitters ever!
Great as always!
My regular DogVacay people were not available, and Jessica and Jay were 30 minutes away, but I took a chance since it looked like a great place for a big dog. Max had a blast - swimming, exploring, and even chasing Jay's drones! They attached a GPS to him since they have so much property, which made me feel better. They also sent several texts and pictures daily. He was having so much fun I was worried he wouldn't want to come home! Thumbs up to Jessica and Jay
Jay and Jessica did more than simply care for our dog. They took her in as a member of the family. The nearly daily text updates and photos assured us that our pet was in good hands and having the time of her life.
Jay Jessica were wonderful to our 3 baby boys. I scheduled with them online the weekend before Christmas to drop them off on Christmas day. We were not able to meet them before hand, but when we drove up to the house they were outside to meet us. Neuget has actually run away from a sitter's house before and Mason was actually stolen from us, so we were concerned about them. They put GPS collars on the Mason and Nino and put us totally at ease. Jay let the big boys run outside around his house and land. They were good and tired when we picked them up. Jessica messaged me on FB and sent plenty of pictures. I couldn't be more pleased with their care. I hope they let us come back again though, because my boys were being boys and marked in the house several times. Jessica contacted me to let me know and asked me how to handle it. They had never been around that many girl dogs at one time. OMG!!!
Molly( a MaltiPoo) was a puppy mill breeder throwaway. She was bred, until she couldn't have any more pups, then she thrown out on a shopping center parking lot. Very fearful and untrusting. She went feral fast. She had to be trapped in order to get her off the streets. She is shy and timid and she has made great headway in the eight months she has been my care. As such I felt it was important to keep her in a house setting while I was away for a few days. A vet clinic or standard boarding was out of the question.
Jay and Jessica treated her like one of the family. They sent pics of her daily and it was easy to see that Molly was very happy in her "new" home away from home. There was less stress on her than I would ever dreamed possible. I am extremely happy with the care she received from these wonderful folks. I Highly reccomend them.
Our dog, Ringo had the time of his life at Dog Heaven. He played with other dogs, chased squirrels, swam in the lake, took walks on endless acres of forests, slept inside a lovely house and made new friends. Jay and Jessica kept in touch on a daily basis to let us know how Ringo was doing. I'm so glad we found Dog Heaven. It was a wonderful experience for both us and our dog, Ringo. We will definitely return and I know Ringo would LOVE to go back to Dog Heaven!
Jay and Jessica are such wonderful, genuinely sweet people and their home really is dog heaven. My dog was clearly attached to them, which speaks to how well they treated her after I've left. Both times I've picked her up, I've felt a little guilty taking my pup back to city living from such a perfect environment for dogs. Don't be deterred by the distance outside of Jackson if that's where you're coming from- it's worth the drive for sure.
The dogs had a great time! Came home pooped out and we were too so that turned out good. They will go back, they loved swimming and playing the whole time!
Dogs had a great time! Didn't worry about them at all. Great place to leave our fur babies.
Jay & Jessica are truly dog lovers and great dog sitters! My two Weimaraners (Female age 5, Male age 11) had a WONDERFUL time while I was away on vacation. They took my kids for a walk around their property (which is big, secluded, and very well kept) daily, and made sure to keep me posted with pictures. I don't think either of my "kids" wanted to come back home; they had the luxury of free roaming while they were on their vacation. I really appreciate Jay & Jessica for opening up their home and watching my two precious fur babies. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a better alternative to boarding.
I am so thankful we found out about Jay and Jessica! My 15 month old mountain Kur stayed with them for a week while we went on vacation. Their house was the perfect environment for our dog, as she has free reign to run on our 150 acres. Both Jessica and Jay made us feel so comfortable on our meet and greet by reassuring us that Kimber was in good hands. Jessica kept me updated all week with photos and videos of how well our dog was doing. It really made us feels good knowing she (our dog) was in such great care. They treated her just like she was one of their own. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a place to keep their dog(s). We are truly thankful they are here when we need them. We will definitely be using them again in the future.
Jay and Jessica were GREAT hosts! My dog was a little nervous at first but they helped her become one of the pack right away. They sent me the cutest pictures during my trip. She had all kinds of adventures at their (stunning) house like running through the woods, splashing in the lake, and chasing the 4-wheeler with the other dogs. It was clear that they really cared about her!
