we love Jim and wendy, and bailey is well cared for.
JIm and Wendy took excellent care of our two babies. They sent pictures throughout the stay which were really nice.
Endor had the best time ever with Jim and Wendy. I think her vacation went better than ours!
Jim and Wendy have been great! This is the second time our pups have stayed with them and they took great care of them. They respond quickly and send photo updates of them so you know they're doing great. If your dog needs special care they are more than willing to help. They administered some medication for one of our dogs while she stayed with them. They are a very nice couple and our dogs were excited to come back. Their dog Dixie is a sweetie too. She got along great with our dogs and was happy to have a friend to play with. I would highly recommend!! They've cared for many dogs so don't hesitate!
Cannot say enough good things about Jim and Wendy. This is the second time they have looked after Chay and if possible I will always try to book with them.
Bailey was well cared for with Jim and Wendy. Shes' very spoiled,and was spoiled at their house too. Thanks.
Jim & Wendy are excellent!

Our dog, Mr.Snuggles, stayed with them during our wedding. We are from out of town and were very nervous about finding somewhere for him to stay. It was his first time staying with anyone other than family and they made us feel so at ease.

As an anxious dog, we were glad to hear that he connected well with Wendy.

Their experience with dogs was evident and we can't thank them enough for taking care of Mr.Snuggles.
Jim & Wendy were great. My three kids loved their visit and were so relaxed when I came to get them. Almost like they didn't want to leave. We definitely will be back!!!
Excellent care! I don't think my dog wanted to come home with me.
After meeting Jim and Wendy I wasn't worried about Douglas' care while we were gone. He was spoiled and cared for like family. In fact we have already reserved days for his stay when we are gone again.
It was a pleasure knowing our "girls" were in a loving, safe home where they were welcome. Jim & Wendy did a great job and we even received a picture of our dogs from Jim! We will definitely be reserving a spot with these hosts if we need overnight boarding for our dogs again.
Jim and Wendy provided an awesome day of daycare for Maggie and Caia. They were available on short notice and two of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. They have a huge dog-friendly property (although not fenced) and their house is completely dog-friendly as well. They are retired so the dogs get lots of TLC during their stay. Maggie and Caia seemed to feel right at home when we picked them up at the end of the day!
Jim and Wendy were fantastic! They treated our Ginger just like she was their own. She had so much fun playing with their sweet lab Dixie. We were very late picking Ginger up fue to traffic and they were very understanding and flexible with us. I will definitely be using Jim and Wendy again and highly recommend them!
Belle had a great time visiting, and came home well exercised from the stay
Our dogs had a fantastic weekend "retreat" with Jim and Wendy at their amazing woodland escape. We were greeted by them, and their lovable Dixie when we pulled up, and all three dogs sniffed each other and went about exploring the property. Many time through their stay we received text message picture of our furry kids playing and enjoying their time. Jim and Wendy have an amazing place, and a huge love for animals. We will definitely be visiting again!!
Eli and Annie had a great time at Jim and Wendy's!!! We were so happy to receive photos of the two of them playing with Dixie in the Doggie Pool, chasing in the yard and Beddie Bye. We called several times but all our fears were set aside when we were told Eli then Annie jumped on their bed to sleep for the night. We were satisfied that both animals were safe! A million thank-yous!!!
This was Mookie's first time away from home. She had a fantastic time at Jim and Wendy's and slept for days afterwards! They were very understanding of my drop off and pick up schedule. They even had their yellow lab granddaughter over so that Mookie would have a friend her age to play with. I really appreciated the pics they sent me during the day. Their Dixie is also the sweetest dog I've ever met too. Will definitely be taking Mook to Jim and Wendy's from now on! Thank you both :-))
Jim and Wendy took exceptional care of my dog Ruby. They played outside every day until she was dog tired and made her feel right at home inside. I think she would have been happy staying forever with Jim and Wendy.
Cece had a wonderful time here with their dog. Jim and Wendy cared so much for her and very understanding of my schedule for pick up and drop off. I would definitely come back here.
Jim and Wendy were very accommodating when illness caused changes to my travel plans. Frazier was not able to stay with them as long as I planned, but he had a very good time while he was there.
Jim and Wendy were great! They were flexible to our needs and were even willing to take our dogs in despite the fact that we were unable to do a meet and greet due to distance. Nico and Apollo were well taken care of and enjoyed their stay with Jim and Wendy!
Jim and Wendy were great with Gizmo! It was Gizzie's first time away from home overnight, so we were a bit nervous. Jim and Wendy were awesome in reassuring us that he was going well. We received pictures and updates daily, and they were very quick to respond to our messages to check in on Gizmo. Gizmo had a great time on his "vacation". It is such a relief to know that when we leave town we have someone to trust to take care of our little guy. Thank you, Jim and Wendy!
Betty appeared to have a good time!
My shorkies had a ball with Jim and Wendy. One kept busy chasing the cat. They texted me pictures every day and that really helped me to feel better about leaving them. I will be taking them back again. Thanks Jim and Wendy
