About Jodean

29 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I was raised with a love for animals and I care for them whether they share the house or visit our yard. My husband and son have the same love of animals and we only wish that we could have more! We share our home with Bo, our playful Rottie Shepherd mix, and Blue, our neighborhood stray cat that adopted us. While Bo is a lover, he is also an alpha male. If your dog is also an alpha male, please schedule a meet & greet to see if everyone will get along.

We have a fenced back yard, and when the weather is nice and we're home, the furry kids have an open door in and out of the house and yard. Fair warning - we spoil them. They will have free access to the couches and beds and rewarded with treats often. Just like grandparents, we spoil the kids then send them back to their parents!

Jorden was was one sent text update on my dog every day and I know my dog got spoiled with attention. She is very good.
Tanner has such a good time with Jodean and her family and I love the pictures she texts during his time away from home. I can definitely relax knowing Tanner is in such caring hands.
Ziggy loves going to stay with Jodean. She treats him like he is one of her own. She sent pictures many times during our vacation of Ziggy. He looked extremely happy in every picture. I would recommend Jodean to anyone that has a 4 legged member of the family that is looking for a wonderful vacation. You can leave and know that your pet is in very capable hands.
I can tell Buffy truly enjoys herself at this Dog Vacay with Jodean and her family. I am soooo glad we found them, for Buffy's sake! To play with, she has their 10-yr-old son, their dog, and visiting dogs. And she has great, loving care from Jodean. My thanks to this family for loving dogs this much!
Another great vacation for our dog Hershey. Thanks again Jo for making our vacation better by taking very good care of our dog.
Another great experience with Jodean and her family. We have now left our dog with them them 6 or 7 times for everything from overnight to week long trips. I love the updates we get during our trip and our puppy runs up to the door the moment he can see Jodean's house. You can tell he enjoys being there as well!
Jodean and her family are always wonderful hosts for our dog! We love her and Pita loves staying with her.
My little poodle, Buffy, does so well at Jodean's. She's treated wonderfully, with snuggly sleeping accommodations, fun with other "vacationers," and fun and comfort with the family in their house. She was perky when we picked her up, and she's been very playful and happy today (the day after picking her up). I love seeing my little Buffy happy from a stay with someone else! Thank you, Jodean and family!
Once again, Tanner had a great visit with Jodean and her family. Tanner and Bo are squirrel watching buddies, and the pictures I received from Jodean provided such a good feeling that Tanner was definitely enjoying himself. Jodean gets a rating of 5 Paws from us (and Tanner!)
Tanner had a great time with Jodean and family. I received pictures via text of Tanner's visit which made me smile and couldn't have asked for a better first visit. Tanner will definitely go back to a great home environment with people who love and care deeply. Thank you all for taking care of our "Tan Man".
Jodean and her family are wonderful! Buffy seemed very comfortable there (and she is not comfortable in a kennel). We found a happy dog when we picked her up. She also didn't have to sleep alone at night as she was allowed to be sleep with their 10-yr-old son!! This is a good, loving home!
My mom, grandma, and I left our 5 dogs in jodean's care. I have never felt more at ease leaving my dogs with her and her family. We got daily text messages with pictures of our dogs while on their vacation. From the moment we walked in the door you see their love for dogs. They both immediately petted and loved on our dogs. I will always try to book with Jodean when I go out of town. I highly recommend her to any family with dogs big or small.
We left our puppy with Jodean for 10 days while we were in Europe recently. It was a long time to be gone, but her picture updates put us so at ease. It was easy to tell that he was having fun and wiped out by the end of the day. I have absolutely no reservations about leaving my puppy with her for any length of time.
Had another positive experience with Jodean and my guy, Paddy. Nice to know Paddy has the same "at home" comforts when I'm away. Big thank you! Karen
Jodean was amazing and loving to Cooper my black lab. In fact I think Cooper was sad to leave because he fell in love with Jodean and her family. Cooper will definitey be back for a visit. I truly would recommend Jodean to my friends.
We have left the boys countless times with Jodean, and we are so happy with her care while we are away! She always sends daily notes and pictures to let us know how they are doing, and they always come home rested and happy!
Jodean was a perfect host to our little Yorkie. MiMi sleeps with us, and I was delighted that Jodean allowed MiMi sleep with her also. Thanks Jodean!
DogVacay is well worth the money. Jodean was terrific. She treats your dog as one of her own. We will definitely be taking Huck back.
Wow. I have never felt so comfortable leaving my four legged kid as I have with Jodean. I think Sasha was actually sad to come home. Jodean and her family took care of sasha like she is their own doggy and were so flexible with everything. The daily pictures I received were awesome and comforted me in knowing sasha was having a good time. By far the best I could have chosen in our area! We'll be back for sure.
This was the 1st time our 2 doggies spent a night away from home. Jodean was wonderful. She reassured us every single day we were gone with updates and pictures of our doggies. She even had home made straight from the oven doggie treats to take home with us. She and her son were very good to our dogs. We will use them again!!!
Jodean took wonderful care of our dog! We loved the almost daily texts with pics to tell and show up how she was doing. We will definitely use Jodean again!
Jodean and family made me feel at ease leaving my Lhasa apso, Paddy, with them as he is a realitively new member of my family having been adopted in March. I wanted a homey environment for him to be comfortable in as he is somewhat anxious yet. I think he had a great time and was well cared for. He is camera shy, but Jo was able to send me some cute pics of him anyway! I was very pleased with his stay at Jodean's. Thank you, again. Karen
Lady loves staying at Jodean's; playing with Bo is her favorite, and I get peace of mind knowing she's a member of the family when she's there. I love the photo updates, too! :)
This was our first time leaving our puppy somewhere and I couldn't have been more pleased.. We got pictures of all the fun he was having which was so fun! When he got home he was tired and happy from playing with all the other dogs. We will be back!
Excellencio- Top Class
Jodean has a wonderful way with animals. This was the 1st time our Ziggy stayed away from home and what a wonderful time he had! I would recommend Jodean and her home to anyone looking for a special person and place for their animals to vacation at!
Thank you! Duke just loves you guys!!!
Jo and her family took care of our Hershey as if it was her own dog. Our Lab has torn knees and Jo bought a ramp so he could go up the two steps into her house a little easier! You can tell they all love animals and we are going to ask her to watch our Hershey again in the future. Bo even sent home doggie treats for Hershey when we picked him up! Thanks Jo, not worrying about our dog when we are on vacation makes for a more enjoyable time for us.
Lady has a blast hanging out with Jodean, Bo, and their family! They do a great job of welcoming dogs into their home, and I completely trust that my dog is in capable, caring hands when I need to be away.
We could not be happier with Jodean and her excellent care of our dogs. They welcomed our dogs into their home the same as they treat their own sweet dog, Bo. Their house is the perfect puppy retreat with a lovely sunroom that opens up into a fenced in yard. Our pups even slept in their bedroom like family. I used to dread traveling due to the anxiety of our dogs, but thanks to the many pictures sent daily we could tell they were as happy and as relaxed as they are at home and could rest easy knowing everyone was happy. I highly recommend this place for your dog-it is a treasure!!! Thank you Jodean, Mark, & Montgomery! :-) We look forward to using your service again.
Our little dog, Tatum, was in the best care ever, probably better than at home! So much better than any kennel or boarder in the area. From here on out, our little dog will only stay with Jodean and her crew. Honestly, I'm surprised Tatum even wanted to come home with us.
Duke had the best time with Bo! Thank you Jodean and your family it was awesome!
Jo, Monty and Mark go out of their way to make the experience great for the boys! We were detained at the hospital after having our baby for a few days, and Jo bent over backwards for us. Thank you again, Jo, Monty and Mark! We love having our boys stay with you!!
Jodean was exceptional and I would with no doubt use her services for pet boarding and this goes for anyone out there looking for a homely environment for their loving pets. They have 2 of their own pets who gave good company to Rango. He looked really happy when we went to pick him up.

Jodean was responsive and sent us updates/pictures multiple times a day.

Thankyou Jodean for taking care of Rango.
Since I adopted my dog from a shelter, I was struggling to find a home where he could stay without being stuck back in a kennel. I was very relieved to find Jodean and her family. They treated him like one of their own pets and showed him tremendous love beginning at our initial meeting. They welcomed my dog with open arms, willing to accommodate to all of his quirks and special needs. While I was away, Jodean sent me frequent text updates with adorable pictures of my dog's adventures throughout the day. There wasn't a single moment I was worried about his well-being while I was out of town, and I've never been able to say that before. I highly recommend Jodean and will most definitely let him vacation with her family again in the future :)
Jodean and her family were awesome with our puppy "Duke." Duke just loved it there and they were such great caretakers that when they saw he was pulling at his ear they were concerned enough to text us about taking him to our Vet. Which we were greatful for. We will be asking Jodean again soon to watch our puppy "Duke."
Jodean was exceptionally courteous, flexible, and accommodating, and I could see in her son's eyes how he loves playing with dogs. My dog had a wonderful time with them and their friendly dogs.
Jodean was exceptional. Took great care of my little girl and even brought her to see me once while I was having a hectic weekend. She sent updates ofton and made us so happy!
Far and away the best experience our dog has ever had! Jodean and her family were wonderful in every aspect and they treated our dog just like their own. We received many pictures & texts of our dog & Jodean's dog having a grand time together & we were grateful for the constant communication. We highly recommend Jodean as an outstanding dog host and we will definitely use her again many times!
Jo & family are wonderful!! I had never left my soon-to-be 11 year old golden retriever, Bella with anyone but family. Our two week vacation hinged upon finding someone to take care of Bella & having never kenneled or boarded her, I was getting very nervous about whether we were going to be able to go. I came across Dog Vacay on FB and thought I'd give a look. I found Jo - she had three great reviews & a repeat customer. I had hope. We met her and her awesome family & knew we were going on vacation before we left her house. Bella had so much fun w Bo (the dog), Jo's awesome, dog-loving son & Jo herself. We got updates every couple of days accompanied with several candid photos of Bella having a blast as part of the family. I NEVER ONCE WORRIED about my beloved Bella.

I cannot recommend Jo & family enough. I will never use anyone else for the remainder of our time in Iowa - truly the best fit I could ever have hoped for!!
Again, Pie is very health and had a great time. Thanks again.
It's definitely a good host. I am looking for work with you again. Thanks so much.
We have now left our dog with Jodean three times and for extended stays as well. She is AMAZING, as is her family! She is prompt, flexible and most importantly her love of animals is very evident in the care she provides. We feel so lucky to have found high quality, in-home doggy sitting!
This is our second time leaving the boys with J and M, and they had a blast! J is great at giving updates of what the dogs are up to, how they are settling in, etc.. The dogs are always well-loved, spoiled, and come home happy and healthy. We love leaving them with J and M!!
J and M are the perfect place for a dog vacay! Our boys were well-loved, spoiled, stimulated and came home tired and very, very happy. They loved playing with M and the other dog Malcolm, who is very sweet and enjoyed having doggie friends to play with. We will definitely use J and M for dog sitting again!
