About Jay

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello there, welcome to Doggy Delight! A convenient and affordable alternative to costly kennels whenever you need to get away. I've got a small chihuahua/beagle mix who gets along great with other dogs. My place is conveniently located in a quiet part of downtown Bridgeport that is very walkable with several nice grassy areas that doggy's love. My doggy Shadae and I enjoy taking long walks, and we'd sure love some company. Give Doggy Delight! a try, you will not be disappointed!

***There is a $10/day added fee for boarding/daycare for dogs that are NOT housetrained.***

Had a lot of dogs, but took good care of ours and sent pictures everyday!
Jay was great! Super friendly, sent pictures every day, and the dogs were super happy when we came to pick them up. Will definitely be using Jay again.
Jay does a great job, he goes the extra mile to help you and he's great with the dogs
she did well with him and his kind dog
After using Jay's services for a weekend trip, I decided to book him for our longer 8 day vacation out of state. He is fantastic with dogs and my little guy absolutely loves his time there. Jay is trustworthy, professional, and great at communicating. I would recommend him to anyone. Our flight was delayed on our way back and Jay was more than accommodating to our late arrival. He is the best!
We are so happy we found Jay! We were very nervous about leaving our "fur baby" alone for multiple days for the first time. He is a very large puppy, and we were nervous about how someone would feel taking him in. When we met Jay, we were completely relieved! He knew just how to handle our 70lb puppy. He sent us pictures daily, and reassured us that our dog was getting multiple walks and AMPLE playtime with the other dogs Jay was watching. It was perfect!
Overall experience went very well. I have no complaints. Jay was a very welcoming host for my puppy. I would definitely use him again in the future.
Jay is amazing. I found him on dog Vacay by accident in the summer. I would tell you it was the best accident ever. I have taken my dof to him five times since. My dog loves jay. Not only is he good with my dog he is extremely professional. Would rate him as excellent. A completely rare find.
Jay was very accommodating to my crazy drop off/pick up schedule was able to watch Gabby on a last minute notice. He was great with providing me updates - will definitely recommend!
Really good experience....Jay was great with answering back quickly with any questions we asked
Our pug Bruce stayed with Jay and it was a great experience! He came home happy and healthy and he'll be back again in November!
Jay was very professional and seems experienced with different types of dogs. We will definitely use him again.
Jay was an amazing host to my little guy! He was so kind, took great care of him (even while his leg was hurt!) and was extremely flexible about drop off and pick up times. Next time I'm in Bridgeport, I'd only leave my pup with Jay!
Jay really made a great difference for us. We had to board our dog for a little over a month and we were hesitant to use a traditional kennel. Fortunately, we met Jay.

From day one, he was very approachable and caring. Plus, he has a genuine love for dogs.

We had daily updates, we were in touch constantly, and our dog was very comfortable with Jay.

I am really grateful to have found Jay, he made a huge difference for us. Although we would love to spend more time with our pet, we will not hesitate to reach out to Jay, for a temporary second home!.

Thanks Jay for all that you do!
JAy took great care of my adorable but poorly-behaved dog. He kept me well-informed while I was gone, and made sure that my dog had plenty of exercise and lots of interactions with humans and other dogs. I don't even know if my puppy missed me at all!
Jay was great with my dog while I was gone for 10 days. He gave regular photo updates and was very responsive to any and all questions. He even was a good sport when my (female) pup went into heat a bit earlier than expected. I'd absolutely recommend Jay.
Jay was awesome! He took great care of my dog Prince. He took him for daily walks, played with him, feed him special meals as I requested. Jay also sent daily pictures of Prince's routines and new friends which kept me happy knowing that my dog was having a great time. He was having a vacation as I was having one. I will gladly leave Prince again with Jay when I go out of town. Thank you so much Jay!
From drop off to pick up, Jay was a pleasure to work with. My Bootsy can be quite the handful of a pup, and I felt confident leaving her with Jay. I will definitely be calling on him for my next trip.
We left our two labs with Jay for several days and everything went smoothly. Jay was very responsive, sending us pictures and updates every day. He is a sweet guy and clearly loves dogs, which made us very comfortable trusting him with our pups. We would definitely use Jay's services again!
looks like the dogs had a great time!
Jay was great, very responsive, lots of pics. Our dog clearly didn't miss us :), found herself a boyfriend and came back trained! No more jumping and mouthing, it's as if she went to obedience school. Would definitely recommend and will definitely return. Two thumbs up!
Jay is awesome, friendly, and professional every step of the way. He was able to watch our dog on short notice and was ultra-communicative the entire time. We will absolutely be bringing our dog to Jay the next time we need someone to watch him!
Two words regarding Jay. True Professional.
Jay was great from the very first interaction with him, responding super quick and was very informative answering every question or concern we had. We had him watch Bella our female boxer for 10 days while on vacation. He would send pictures and updates every day keeping us very informed and putting our minds at ease.

We were very happy with the service and care he gave Bella. We feel that our dog was very happy and comfortable with Jay, and would definitely go back to him and recommend him for anyone!

DogVacy should take note of how Jay runs his business have him mentor other people looking to get into this type of work. Again a true professional.
Jay did a great job with our Pitbull and Boxer! He was extremely responsive and flexible, and that made things a lot easier for us! I really appreciated that Jay respected our care/feeding wishes for the dogs and seemed to genuinely like having them around! Would not hesitate to leave our girls there again!
Jay was wonderful taking care of our active puppy, Zoe! Jay is flexible and great to work with and he made Zoe feel welcome and comfortable.

Zoe had a great time playing, hanging out and going for walks with Jay and his puppy, Shadae. We definitely hope to leave Zoe with Jay when we need to travel again.
Jay was wonderful! he was quick to respond and very professional both through our emails as well as in person! He is a VERY pleasant person and he went above and beyond to ensure that our dog, Bilbo was happy and comfortable. His dog was VERY friendly with ours which put us at ease knowing that they'd have a blast together! Jay sent us one picture each day we were gone, if not more. We won't hesitate to book him in the future! 5 out of 5 paws!! You won't be disappointed with Jay!
Jay was so good to my 14wk old puppy! He sent adorable update photos and was very tolerant of all of my nervous questions. His pup Shadae was also so sweet to my hyper yorkie. This certainly won't be the last time I ask Jay to take care of my puppy!
Jay is so awesome! He is very sweet and understanding. I totally missed my flight and he had to watch Pebbles an extra day. He was totally ok with it and definitely loved Pebbles. I loved all the pictures he sent and it was great to know she was in great hands. Will definitely be booking again! Thanks again Jay!!
We were very happy with the service and care provided. We feel that our dog was very happy and comfortable with Jay, and would definitely go back to this service and recommend him for anyone!
Jay was an excellent host!! He was flexible with pickup and drop off times and sent regular photo updates. We will definitely book future vacations with Jay!
He took great care of Jake & kept him on/close to schedule which was perfect. If ever need Dogvacy again will definitely book him
This was the first time that Ella was away from home . I was very pleased with Jay taking care of her. I will use him again when we are out of town. Thanks Jay
Jay was my sitter experience with DogVacay and it went extremely well. He was extremely accommodating with the initial meet and greet as well as keeping me informed with updates on my pet during my time away. I would strongly recommend him if you're looking for someone to watch your pet while your away. I will be a repeat customer for him going forward!
Jay was great! I was very worried about leaving my dogs and I thought they would drive him nuts. He gave me updates which I appreciated. The fact that he lives very close to me was very convenient. If I go out of town again, I will definitely re-book with Jay.
Professional and polite. Second time using his service and would use a third.
Excellent and polite! He liked our dog, and our dog liked him and his dog. Extra belly rubs for Rose, responsive to my questions, and pictures when asked. I would definitely go back to him for a dog sitter.
We loved Jay and our dog loved playing with Jay's dog. We liked Jay immediately upon meeting him and he took to our dog right away. He's polite, kind, and has a wonderful demeanor. Also was excellent at getting back to us for a last minute reservation over a holiday week end which was key for us! He was immediately responsive when ever we sent a text, and organized with drop off and pick up times. We will definitely be using him as our "home away from home" for our dog and referring him to any of our friends in need of a dog sitter! Hopefully he won't get so busy that we can't get our dog in there when needed!
Jay came in just in time. My last sitter canceled last minute and he was very nice sent pictures and gave me daily check up on Ayden. Ayden was happy there and happy say that Jay will be our new sitter. Great guy and great prices. Thanks Jay!!!
Jay is AMAZING!! My bully baby was WELL cared for. Jay was attentive and made certain my puppy had everything he needed for a fun-filled stay. If there are questions or any issues, Jay will reach out immediately to ensure your pup is a-ok. Great host! I'll definitely be booking again! Jay is Pawesome!!
