About J

We love pets, and we would love to take care of your pet in our home! We are married, 30ish, working professionals with a large, comfortable home, and we are ready and willing to care for your pet while you are away! We have plenty of space for your dog to sprawl out, play and relax indoors, as well as a large, secure, fenced backyard that your dog will just love! We provide a healthy, safe environment for your pet, with lots of love and attention. We will also send you pictures of your pet via text and/or email if you would like!

We are devoted pet owners, and have three wonderful small dogs; they get along well with each other and with other dogs-- big or small! They are well-socialized and up-to-date on all shots/vaccinations.

As owners of multiple pets, we understand first-hand how difficult and stressful it can be to find reliable pet care at reasonable rates. We can usually offer a discount for multiple dogs or extended stays--please just ask! We want to provide the kind of pet care we need for our own doggies, and at an affordable cost.

Because we have three dogs of our own, to keep things stress-free, we generally do not accept more than two dogs at a time. We also prefer to take no more than one large-breed (70 lbs+) dog at a time. We do make exceptions to these rules for dogs from the same family, so please do not hesitate to ask.

Please note that while we are willing to host most breeds/ages, we do not host dogs who are agressive or have significant behavioral issues (quirks are ok!). We also cannot accommodate pups who need constant, close supervison, or who require frequent (i.e., every few hours) potty breaks.

If your pets are your 'fur-kids', look no further for great care! Feel free to contact us with any questions or for a custom quote!

Jen and Jim

**Since we only take a few dogs at a time, we tend to book-up quickly over holidays and busy travel periods, so please book early if you can! :) Please see our calendar to view our availability--once we have two dogs booked, we update our calendar to "unavailable." Thanks!

Jen and Jim were great with my 5 year old bichon! He had skin allergies and they took care of him. Jen and Jim sent photos, and my dog loved playing with their dogs! I would recommend Jen and Jim to anyone with a small/medium dog that like to play with other dogs.
Third visit for Maggie! She was well taken care of and comes home not stressed and happy!
Maggie misses you and the dogs! Thanks again! She had a great stay.
Jen and Jim are the best! This was our dog's second stay with them, and it was great. We really appreciated Jen and Jim's flexibility, too - our plans were very unsettled, and they were very patient with us.
Jen and Jim are great! Maggie had a wonderful visit with them and their cute pooches. They took great care of Maggie and I highly recommend them.
Jen and Jim and their doggies were great! The only concern I have is that our younger pooch was sad to come home! She's adjusted, but I think she misses her friends. We would definitely leave our babies with them again!
Jen and Jim are wonderful. They are true "dog people" and my dog felt very comfortable with them and their dogs. They took him for a walk, and let him sleep in their room in his bed. They sent me pictures of him during my trip, and it made me feel good to see how happy he was. I really appreciated the peace of mind they gave me.
Chelsea loved her stay with Jen & Jim! They were accommodating of her eccentricities, and sent picture text updates. I would definitely use Jen & Jim again.
Right from our first interaction via Dogvacay, Jen and Jim were delightful. Jen was quick to respond to my emails and set up a Meet & Greet. It made me feel much better to have her pups meet my pups before we booked an overnight stay. The pictures we received while we were away were great and it was clear that Jen and Jim were pampering Dasher and Gio. My boys came home extremely happy! I would highly recommend Jen and Jim and plan to book future stays with them again.
Jenni and Jim were awesome hosts for my two dogs over the holidays! From the moment we met at the Meet-n-Greet, I knew my babies would be in excellent hands. I got daily texts and pictures, which always put a big smile on my face:) Also, they were more than accommodating when they accepted my Vacay request at the last minute, as well as they were so understanding when my flight was delayed! They were absolutely great!!
We have used Jenni and Jim several times now and each time is perfect. They are extremely attentive, and it's obvious that they treat our dogs like their own. They were flexible when we had to extend our trip an extra day. Overall, we are very happy and look forward to using them again! Thanks, Jenni and Jim!
The nicest couple with the sweetest trio of 4 legged kids! They took great care of my Dog! I am really particular about my little dog. They were awesome. She was happy and playful as soon as we Picked Her up :)
Jenni and Jim were fantastic! They watched our two pups for about a week while we were out of town and they took care of our pups like they were their own! We found out the day before we were supposed to leave town that one of our pups was sick and was going to require lots of supervision and medication during the week we were supposed to be out. Jenni was so gracious and willing to take on these additional tasks (without charging us extra) to accommodate. She also sent us daily texts and pictures of our dogs snuggling with them and playing with the other puppies. Overall, we could not rate this experience higher. They are very reasonably priced too! Thanks Jenni and Jim!!!
We had to find a place for Bailey for the weekend and mid-week we emailed Jen and Jim. They were very responsive and quickly arranged a meet-and-greet and confirmed the reservation. Their home is spacious with a great yard. Their dogs are very friendly. They were great with Bailey - and he is a handful! They are clearly dog people. This was the first time I used dog vacay and Jen and Jim have set the bar high. We would have Bailey stay with them again.
Rusty had a wonderful time with Jen & Jim! They took very good care of my high energy pup! He came home very exhausted, thank goodness! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great home away from home for their pooch! I look forward to using them again!! Thanks guys!!
