About Jon n Haru

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your BFF gets special family attention as we sit pets from the same household only. Life here's a beach along the Palisades ridge state park trails right on the Hudson River. It is truly a wonderland for anyone and your pup as well. Let Dutchtown Tails take special individual care of your pet in this one of a kind natural waterfront setting. The Hudson River beach. the Longpath trails and bay is our scenic part of the river and nearby state park trails are off our very private street. It's been called an eclectic hideaway for artists and likened to small fishing village by some.

We are located in a unique safe and pet friendly Dutchtown neighborhood in Haverstraw, NY (bordering Congers and New City) with spacious accommodations on a private beach, with many neighborhood doggie friends as well as beautiful state park trails only a short 1 minute walk away. Our service is perfect for those who think of your pups as family members more than pets. You can easily see what kind of experience your furry four-legged friend will have based on photos (lots!) and references. Dog-sitters are considerably less expensive than pet hotels, and it seems that you get way more value and personal service for the $$.

The dogs we care for range in size from toy to medium-large doggies of about 45 pounds; we have one beauty, a regular visitor, over 75 pounds. We watch shedding pups -with added $25 fee charge- from medium size and up.... or no shedding clean charge if at your home at this time. We always feed your dog his or her favorite diet that you supply or can arrange with you in advance to have food on hand should you need. For first timers, we can visit your home so you can see how your pet bonds or visit us here. We also have local references in your area. Plus, you may get to meet our runway stars shown here: Max, Molly, Jenny, Maggie, Freddi, Tobey, Gizmo and our own Momo with many added friends posted more recent.

At the end of the block, a one minute walk, is the north entrance to the Hook Mountain/Nyack Beach nature trail and bikeway, a scenic miles trail along the cliffs of the Hudson River where one can see rare birds, doggies love it, the ruins of old WPA stone houses, and a monument marking the spot where Benedict Arnold handed over the plans for West Point to the British during the Revolutionary War.

I couldn't be happier! Jon n Haru are wonderful! My little Wylie never stayed with a stranger before and I was concerned. They sent me pictures of Wylie throughout the stay, which was very comforting. When I picked up my little boy it was easy to see that he was happy to see me, of course, but he was also very happy with Jon n Haru -- running back and forth between me and each of them with his tail wagging a mile a minute! They played with him and took him for nice walks (when it wasn't snowing -- my boy hates the snow). I wouldn't hesitate to book a Vacay with Jon n Haru again!
Our dog loves going to Jon & Haru's! They are great people and truly care about your pet!!!
I wouldn't think of leaving my dogs with anyone but Jon and Miharu. I have had such a great experience with them. When I need to go away for business, I have zero anxiety about how my dogs are doing. I know they are being treated with great care and that they are getting even more time and attention than I am able to give them on a typical work day. Jon and Miharu are lovely people who go above and beyond in their pet sitting. They take care of Venus, Luna, and Lola as if they were their own. I couldn't ask for more!
Jon is a sweet, caring and punctual man. He shows tremendous love for our dog. He always updates us with pictures , time of his arrival and leave. I would highly recommend him .
This is my second time , my Nova was very happy and had a blast . Jon and Haru are wonderful people . They love their guests . Your pets will be safe and happy. Great people .
Could not have been happier with Ziggy's stay with Jon and Haru. The spot has great access to a walking trail, and to the river. I was sent many pictures of Ziggy during her stay and she was very well cared for. Jon and Haru are very easy to deal with and show a great love for the animals they take care of. I will be using again in the future.
Jon & Haru took great care of Max during our family vacation to the shore. They were very responsive throughout the booking process & the duration of Max's stay. We received photo updates of Max's adventures throughout the week, which was a fun way to stay connected. I will 100% use them again & would recommend them to anyone.
Pepi had a great time with Jon and Haru! I was sent picture updates throughout our trip of Pepi. He was definitely in good hands while we were away. We had no worries!!
Jon and Haru are great !!! My two Havanese had a good time, plenty of walks. I like that they are the only dogs at their house at one time - they don't currently have their own dogs so my boys are getting all the attention while there!!! Lovely experience - lovely people. Will be back this summer!
Jon and Haru are the best. This was Gurtie's first successful sleepover anywhere and she really had a good time. They sent lots of pictures of her enjoying scenic walks, lounging on the deck and making herself at home on their couch! Gurtie is known to be a handful with her dog friends here at the Harbors but from the first meet and greet she really felt at home with Jon and Haru. I am so relieved to have a home away from home that is so convenient and trustworthy.
This was our first time experience with Dog Vacay, and John was highly recommended by some of the dogowners at Harbors. Based on the pictures that he sent us , and the happy state of our dog , after returning home, we knew
Hudson, was a happy camper!
John is a great match to our enthusiastic,loving, high energy wheaten.
Jon and Haru took great care of our two dogs. They sent us pictures of the dogs everyday and were very responsive to text messages and emails. I expected the dogs would be nervous since this was their first time with a dog-sitter. But, it seemed like they both had a great and fun time. Jon and Haru spent a lot of time with them and took them on walks to the nearby beach area.
I can't say enough great things about Jon and Haru. I left my two dogs with them for the first time for three weeks. The dogs always seemed happy in the photos I was emailed. I was also given updates every other day, if not every day. I can't wait to plan my next vacation knowing my dogs would be in excellent hands. They are a delightful couple and great dog sitters.
We had a meet and greet session , we found they were knowledgeable in dog care and had a love for pets . So we decided to give Nova a day , and they started out with good separation techniques , so Nova felt comfortable and I felt comfortable , within an hour I got a picture of Nova and updates , regularly , I could see that they loved my Nova . They took him out for walks and had fun even in the rain . They not only took care but they showed love. So much so had they bonded that Nova barked at me when I went to pick him up . Nova has now a loving and safe home to go to . He has a blast of a vacation with Jon and Haru.
Thank you Jon and Haru
Jon and Haru were great! They took great care of our doggies!!!!
Jon and his wife took excellent care of my dog and sent me plenty of information about how he was doing. My dog enjoyed being around them and loved how much they took him out and how well they cared for him that he didn't want to come back home with me (the sign of a great vacation)! Jon is a true gentleman and pack leader and I strongly recommend him.
We truly enjoyed dropping our dog off with Jon. He took him for a walk and he sent us pictures so we knew he was safe and warm on his couch. He had a great time and he was very friendly with him and our dogs seem to feel right at home. Thank you Jon for saving us any worries!
Jon and his wife were wonderful with Gizmo! We received daily photo updates to assure us everything was ok. I definitely recommend their house for your furry loved one!
Kind, caring, comfortable..... Just like home. Fun places to romp and play. 21st technology keeps your connection while away - text, website, Skype and email updates.
