About Jon

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My dog is a female Schnauzer, coming on 4 years old and 17 pounds. She loves other dogs and can play for hours. Because of her play, she needs to only vacay with dogs that are 30 pounds are less.

She spends a lot of time hanging out on her balcony. The door to the balcony is almost always open.

I generally work at home everyday, but might meet clients for a couple hours in a day.

We do four walks a day:
1: 7 AM: Short 10 minute
2. 10 AM: 45 minute walk
3. 5 PM: 15-30 minutes, and probably a run through the private dog park across the street.
4. Short 10 minute walk.

Unfortunately, the calendar feature at DogVacay does not work well and will overbook hosts. Send me a message to see if I can accommodate your pet. My policy is to take one dog at a time unless two dogs have the same owner. However, I have to set the policy at only one dog to make DogVacay work. If you have two, message me and I will send a custom quote.

As a first time user of Dogvacay, I was very wary about choosing a host. I can say nothing but good words about Jon. After collecting my dog he advised me about some anxiety issues my dog has. For 7 years I have been leaving my dog with someone else, who has never let me know. I am deeply grateful to Jon for his care and concern. His home is very clean and my dog didn't return smelling of anything but himself. Despite my dog's issues, he seemed very happy and normal when we got home. I will definitely use Jon again, if he will my dog. Many thanks to you Jon!

Jon and Wilhelmina (his adorable pup) are lovely and the perfect hosts and so easy to work/coordinate with. When I picked up my pup, he was obviously happy and very relaxed, indicating what a great time he had and how wonderfully he was treated. We had a wonderful experience with Jon and I highly recommend his services!

Jon was a wonderful host to Gatsby!!! He sent me pictures and took very good care of Gats. Would have him stay with Jon any time! Thank you!!!
Jon really cares for doggies! His dog Whilehma was a great buddy for Melio. Jon is also really great with updates during the stay. I got photo and video updates throughout Melio's stay.
wonderful experience! Jon is prompt in meeting with me at the entrance of his apartment building for pick up and dropoffs! will choose Jon again whenever I can!
Peanut enjoys staying with Jon, and I feel at ease knowing she is being well taken care of while I am away. She especially enjoys their walks and playing with Jon's pup, Wilhelmina.
She came back with a few scratches that were unexplained... but otherwise- good experience.
Jon is always wonderful and accommodating to our crazy schedule. Thank you Jon!!
Jon is an excellent host. He has kept our dog(s) several times and the dogs really have a fantastic time; lots of love, attention and care. He is the only sitter we will use for our dogs. Thank you, Jon!
I've used Jon a couple of times now and my easy going frenchie seems to enjoy his stays with him and Wilhemina. My last reservation was for a week and Jon was great about keeping me posted on how my boy was doing and even notified me when he got sick. We talked about a contingency plan and it all worked out great. We'll keep using him as long as I'm in the area!

Jon was great with our kids and has figured out their nuances with ease. Kyla & Puff love hanging out with uncle Jon & Wilamiena. . I made the mistake of not updating Jon on Kyla's meds, could have saved him grief. Provide all hosts with full records & even show them the way YOU give meds, my bad. We talked later and laughed a lot! Very Good guy!! Until next time, hugs

Kyla & Puff always have a good time with Uncle Jon!! He was also great about extending a few hours. Thank you!!
Jon and his sweet pup, Wilhelmina, hosted Teddy for a weekend recently and I can't say enough good things about them! Teddy had a fabulous time at Jon's. He was spoiled with lots of outdoor play time on the patio and got some sweet treats to boot! Jon is great, highly recommend him!

Kyla & Puff had a fantastic time! They didn't want to leave. I think they made friends with both Jon & Wilhelmina. Jon was patient with Kyla's initial defiance of being left....she got over it with all of his attention. They were exhausted and slept on the way home, which is not normal. We'll be back!!

Jon is not only a wonderful person but also a great dog host. Our dog Tag loved his stay with Jon. My wife and I will definitely use him in the future!
It took us a long time to find the perfect dog sitter for Whisky, but finally we found him in Jon.

He was very helpful right from the beginning and sent us lots of videos and pictures of Whisky.

During our next vacation, we will definitely book Jon again.

We would recommend him 100% for small and medium sized dogs.

Jon and Wilhemina have looked after Roger brilliantly while we were away. Having Roger stay with them really gives us the peace of mind to enjoy our vacation since he feels at home with them. Jon has been sending updates via text as well as pictures to let us know how he was doing.

Jon is the best! (that's why we keep coming back) I highly recommend him. He is amazing with animals and is just an over-all great person. My dog never seems to want to come back home after staying with Jon. Lol :)
Jon was a great host for Nola.
He was really helpful and flexible with time to drop off and pick up.
We receive several e-mails with Nola's update and photos.
Wilhelmina was a great company and I think my puppy's missing her.
I recommend him and I'll take in mind to another opportunity.

Jon and Wilhemina are wonderful hosts! I was called out of town on short notice and needed someone to watch my five month-old Havanese puppy, who'd only ever been with us. Jon welcomed her and showed her a great time -- several daily walks, trips to the dog park, and a whole weekend of playing with a super-sweet doggie. It was such a relief knowing she was in good hands.

Peanut enjoyed her first stay with Jon & Wilhelmina, especially the walks and special attention. The large balcony is great for the dogs to be entertained by watching the outdoor activity.
Jon was great! I would recommend him to anyone!
Jon was an amazing host for my Abby! He was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up and sent videos and pictures of my baby playing and having fun on her Vacay! I will defiantly recommend him for anyone needing a host for their pet!
Jon was amazing! He did a great job of watching my dog. He's a great host and my dog, Pinkie, love him. He sent me frequent messages and photos. I felt comfortable leaving Pinkie with Jon (and Wilhamenia) because I knew she was in the best of hands. I highly recommend him as a host, and I will be calling on him again. Thank you Jon!

Jon was very accommodating as far as pick up and drop off went. I also received lots of cute picture updates showing all of the fun things Indy was doing. I'm not sure he wanted to come home!!
Jon was AWESOME! We had a meet-n-greet with Jon and his little baby before the reservation and knew immediately he would take good care of our Ping. He took our little baby to the dog park, walked her multiple times a day, and sent us updates/texts/pictures so we wouldn't miss her too much. I would definitely use Jon to watch our Ping again soon!

Jon was so great with our dog, Emma. He sent us multiple pictures and videos of the dogs playing. He had a great condo that was very dog friendly and a huge outdoor patio which our dog loved to hang out on. He was very knowledgable with dogs and was able to problem solve when our dog became stubborn and wouldn't eat. Emma got tons of attention while staying including FOUR walks a day!! I would definitely recommend Jon for your boarding needs- he is fantastic!

Jon was great! He was always contacting me and letting me know how my dog was. He also treated her with love and care which was the most important thing. I would 100% book him again and recommend him for the care of a beloved dog. Thank you!!!
