If I could give Janet 10 stars, I would! She was absolutely INCREDIBLE with our dog, Buttercup. Buttercup is a very energetic and lively little girl, and Janet was nice enough to take her to the dog park every day! She sent us updates and pictures every day, and when she brought Buttercup to our home to drop her off, she showed us several videos of Buttercup playing with other dogs throughout her stay! My husband and I are always a little apprehensive to leave our fur baby with someone new, but our nerves were quickly calmed when I met up with Janet prior to Buttercup's stay. You can tell that Janet really loves dogs, and cares for them like they're her own. Buttercup is one happy, tired girl now, and we cannot thank Janet enough! Truly awesome - my husband and I HIGHLY recommend Janet and will definitely book with her again whenever we take our next trip!
Janet went over and beyond of what I expected or what I wanted.I highly recommend using her if you want your pets in great hands.It's nice to know when your gone someone would love your pets as much as you do.
Love the pictures she sends of Toby having fun while he is with her! He loves being with her!!
This was the 2nd time in less than a couple weeks Janet took care of our Toby. Once again she did an excellent job and I am convinced she loved on him as much as if he were her own!!!
Janet was absolutely wonderful!! I needed someone to watch Toby, our lab, over Thanksgiving and found Janet a couple days before. I took Toby and we met with her before we left and I had a peace after meeting her Toby would be in great hands. I didn't worry one bit while we were away from him. We didn't have to, she sent pictures every day showing how much fun he was having. She took him to the dog park twice a day!! He loved it and I don't think he wanted to leave when I went to pick him up! She loved him as if he was her own. She is the best and I wouldn't hesitate to let Toby stay with her anytime. As a matter of fact, I'm planning to book with her again real soon! She t
Soto and I had a great experience!
I contacted Janet in a panic after my dachshunds didn't do well being left alone while I was in town on business. She was very helpful and flexible and calmed them down and made them feel right at home. She even texted me several pictures of them relaxing, and offered to keep them overnight if I needed more time with my friends. She is terrific!
Our dog Ivy was in great hands with Janet, and I'm positive she had the time of her life! Walks, trips to the dog park, and other furry friends to play with- truly an ideal doggy vacay :) We received photo updates daily letting us know Ivy was doing well. We will definitely call on Janet in the future.
Janet was AMAZING! She was sent updates and photos multiple times a day which was extremely comforting. I could tell my dog, Chance, had a blast and he was tired out for a couple days after I picked him up. Janet made it so easy for me to enjoy my vacation and know my pup was safe and well cared for. I was already booking Janet for my vacation next month before I had even unpacked from this one!!
We have always been happy with our dog's stay with Janet.
Our dog always has a great time at her house.
Our dog always enjoys his stay with Janet.
Janet made us very comfortable when we left our dogs for the first time ever with a non-family member. She has good energy with the dogs, and they got a lot of special attention! We got lots of photos and updates on the dogs through out the weekend. Would not hesitate to hire her again!
Janet did a fantastic job with our three dogs. She met with us ahead of time on short notice and took the time to play with and get to know our pets. While we were away, she communicated with texts and pictures, which was reassuring to my wife that her furry babies were being well cared for. On top of just being a great dog sitter, she knows how to train and work with dogs. We have an 8 month old larger dog and she worked with her and took her to the dog park every day. She gave us tips on how to curb her energy and keep her from jumping on us and guests. We will definitely use Janet again and would recommend her to anyone looking for a conscientious sitter to take care of their furry family.
Janet did an amazing job with my dog, Oliver while I was away on vacation. She sent me messages and pics numerous times over the course of each day. I could tell he was having a great time and was getting lots of exercise and attention. It is apparent that she truly loves what she does:) I will definitely be contacting Janet again in the future for my pet sitting needs.
Janet is a true dog lover, she thinks of their comfort and needs all day long! She took great care of my puppy, and was patient with his potty training for which I am so grateful! She sent a lot of picture updates, took him for many, many walks, and had videos of him playing with her sweet dog to show me when I picked him up. I'm happy to have found her, I was able to enjoy my weekend out of town without a single worry about my pup!
Our two dogs (a boxer and a dachshund mix) just stayed with Janet for the second time and she is great! The dogs seem to love staying with her. Janet is very personable and knows a lot about dogs, and I definitely trust them in her care. She also sends pictures of the dogs so I can see them playing and know that they're having a great time, which I love. They get to interact with people and other dogs and I feel so much more comfortable than I would if we were to leave them at a kennel. We would recommend Janet to anyone and I am sure we will book her again next time Wade and Stella need a place to stay :)
Janet is awesome! She treated Archie just like he was her own. She walked him and played ball with him every day. She made sure he had his allergy medicine. She also sent pictures every day! She made Archie feel special and that set my mind at ease. I didn't have to worry at all!
Janet is our everyday daycare sitter. Johnny loves her and Zoey and happily hops out of the car marches to her house every morning. Highly recommended!
Our experience with Janet was great. She was very active and kept our Henry busy. She also took time to take him to the dog park and help with some socialization. It was a great experience and appreciate the time and energy she put into taking care of our bundle of joy!
Janet took care of my babies for the second time. This time they stayed at her house because I had to leave them for 9 days and I did not worry for one minute cause I knew they were taken care of and loved on. She sent me pictures everyday to let me know that they were okay. She took them for car rides and many walks. She probably gave them more attention than they got at home. I highly recommend Janet to watch your fur babies and mine will be going back when I have to go out of town again. Thank you Janet. See you again soon.
Johnny loved the trip to dog park with Janet and Zoey. We will definitely come back
This was Ruger's second stay with Janet. He loves it there. We received lots of pictures throughout his stay with her. She continues to engage him in lots of activities.
Stella and Wade had a great time staying with Janet! They went to the dog park every day it didn't rain, and she sent us photos of them so we could see they were happy and safe. We would definitely ask her to watch our pups again :)
This is my dog's second stay with Janet, I got a lot of pictures of her playing in the dog park with other doggies everyday. She is happy and healthy when I picked her up. Great sitter to take care of your babies, highly recommend.
I could not have asked for a better sitter to take care of my fur baby, Diesel, for a week.

He got to go to the dog park any day it did not rain and I received picture updates every single day. Janet called a few hours after I dropped him off to let me know that he was doing great and having fun with her pup, Zoey, and the other dogs that were staying with her.

I am thrilled that I found her and I plan on taking him to her for day care and other trips in the future. Diesel came home happy, healthy and got to avoid being in a small space alone for 5 days.
Was our first time using this service and we were happy. Lots of pics and great communication. We would use Janet again.
Janet took great care of my dog. She sent me pictures of my dog playing in the dog park with her new friends everyday. I think my dog had a better vacation than I did. Would definitely recommend Janet.
Janet did an amazing job taking care of our dog. She exceeded our expectations taking Mia by going on walks, rides in the car, and to the dog park!! Mia is our whole world and we would not leave her with just anyone, she has special concerns like medication and food she has to eat. I would recommend Janet to everyone!
This was our first time using DogVacay and leaving our dog. Our dog had a wonderful time! She was so kind and loving to him. I think he missed her and her dog once he came home. We feel very comfortable using her again.
This was our 1st dogvacay stay. We needed someplace to leave our dog for the day and overnight and did not want to leave him at a kennel in a cage. Considerations for our dog were he is 9 yrs old, with arthritis so we wanted a host with a dog similar in energy level, and this was his 1st time being separated from us. We found Janet, and after numerous chats back & forth, selected her because her household sounded like it would be perfect. Upon meeting her, we knew we had made the right choice. Her house is clean & her dog, Zoey, was sweet & both dogs got along just fine. When our plans changed mid-stream due to weather, Janet was flexible and accommodated us with no hesitation. She took the dogs for walks, which helped my dog with his initial separation anxiety, & sent pictures during the day so I could see our baby was doing fine, which put my mind at ease. Janet is a great host and I will definitely use her again if my travel plans bring me back to NC.
I left my dog with Janet for 2 weeks and she did a great job caring for her. Although I was out of the country I received frequent updates on her activities with pictures. My dog is very attached to me but when I went to pick her up, after jumping of joy in my direction she immediately went back to Janet and jumped too, I think it means she considers Janet her "second mother".
Janet did a great job taking care of our 2 dogs. She took them for daily walks and rides and she even sent us pictures of them. She also watered our plants and flowers while we were away. I would definitely recommend her.
I picked Janet based on the reviews and she is everything they said and more. This was my first time using a service and I chose for my dogs to stay in the comfort of their own home and have Janet stop by once a day to tend to their needs. She did much more and I knew my babies were being cared for. She would come everyday for an hour and sometimes more. She would walk them, take them on car rides,take pictures of them and text them to me every day which was for 5 days. She spent quality time with them so they were not lonely. They loved her and I would definitely use Janet again and highly recommend her. Thank you Janet for taking care of my babies.
Benji, my shitzu/schnauzer, met Janet before we booked his weekend stay. He felt comfortable with her right away! She patiently answered all of my questions and we had an enjoyable chat :) Benji stayed with her for 3 days and two nights. I received pictures and messages to ease my concerns about being out of town without him. Every day it looked like he was worn out and happy! Janet even brought him to an outdoor event with other dog friends! Due to a terrible rain storm we came back much later the day we were scheduled to pick him up and she was accommodating and understanding. I'm sure Benji can't wait to see Janet and her sweet dog Zoey again!
She's awesome! Very active with our dogs and very hands on. My dogs really enjoy her.
Absolutely amazing. Literally the best experience with a sitter. Highly recommend her. She spent a lot of time with them, to the point I don't think they realized we were gone. Will definitely be using her again.
Boy! Do I have one tired dog! Janet was great. She took Chief to different places, dog parks, etc daily. He and the other dogs got plenty of exercise!

Janet kept me informed of activities with texts and pictures. She showed me videos when I picked him up.

I will definitely use Janet again and would highly recommend her to others.

Thanks Janet!
This is the first time my wife and I have ever felt comfortable about leaving our dogs behind when going away on a trip. Janet was very professional and accommodating. She was wonderful. Most importantly it was very obvious that she loved dogs. Our dogs are accustomed to boarding at kennels and they hate it. Janet was quickly able to establish a rapport or connection with our babies, making their anxieties go away. She is very attentive to them. Janet stayed in communication with us and periodically sent us pictures and updates of the dogs' progress. We really appreciated it. For the first time ever, we were able to enjoy our vacation without worrying of how the dogs were being treated or who was handling them. Janet also took time to share some information and make great suggestions for our dogs when at home with us. It was obvious that our dogs enjoyed their stay somewhere else for the first time in 9 years. I already told Janet that from now on my pups are staying with her.
I booked a last minute vacation and I didn't want to leave my baby Dakota at a boarding shelter. After reading previous reviews I schedule to visit and meet Ms.Janet personally. I must say she is extremely awesome and her dog Zoey made my heart melt. Ms. Janet sent plenty of pics and upon my arrival to pick Dakota up she embrace me with plenty of videos. When Dakota arrived home he slept his day away.....which is awesome for a Siberian Husky that has a ball of energy...he really enjoyed his week/weekend with Zoey and Ms.Janet
Ginger (our pit-mix) stayed with Janet and Zooey for a second time for a 4 night/5 day vacation. She was treated like royalty and kept busy. Janet continued to send us videos and pictures with Ginger's activities for every time of the day. When we are away, Ginger will always play at Janet's! Thank you again for taking such good care of her!
Macie (lab/border) and Megan (dachshund) loved their weekend with Janet! They felt immediately at home on arrival, and she had a nice space for both. We got updates every day, and some pictures & videos, too! They got to go to the dog park and played with tons of toys...they were very happy campers! Macie and Janet's own very friendly dog had fun playing while Megan supervised. They couldn't wait to get there (and get rid of us) and they were two tired pups when they got home! Janet was great about keeping up with Macie's love for toys, and Megan's need to keep an eye on everything and everyone. Both of them were spoiled rotten over the weekend and they'd love to go back!
I think our dog Ginger (pit mix) had a better vacation than we did! Janet was absolutely fantastic with giving us updates, videos, and pictures of what Ginger was up to during the day. She enjoyed various dog parks, dog bars, and play dates at the home. Janet's dog Zooey got along great with Ginger as she was super friendly. I learned a lot about Ginger's likes/dislikes through Janet's observations in different environments. I would like to think Ginger is happy to be home (tired pup is a happy pup), but cannot wait to go back for a visit again. I would recommend her 100x over as she was fantastic. I know Ginger was loved (and spoiled) while staying at Janet's. We will be using her every time in the future!
