About Jann

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I offer extra-special care for your precious furbabies while you need to be away.

They will be pampered and well socialized to your specific requests in a clean, well maintained and organized environment.

I have a large fenced double yard so there is plenty of room to run and play.

I specialize in several unique accommodations - such as being able to sleep and snuggle in the bed at night in a very dog friendly household.

I am able to give shots to animals with special daily requirements.

Your best friend will look forward to their vacations now instead of getting upset when the vacation suitcases are being packed!

Rey loves going to Jann's to play.
My pup had a great time with Jann! So much room to run and play then at night she was able to sleep in a bed to not break her routine. We had some weather trouble getting home and Jann offered to hold Koda for an extra night free of charge which really helped our stress levels! Jann is so nice and just great with dogs. We'll be using her for every vacation!
Leo loves going to Jann's house! easy going there and perfectly set up for pups! good play time with another dog there!
This is our dog's second home!
Jann is the best! Very kind and accomadating. So blessed to have found her!!!
Our two puppies had a great time. Jann really provides a loving environment, and we will definitely vacation our dogs with Jann again.
OUR DOG LOVES JANN! He is just an 8 week old puppy and he loves going to Jann's house!!
Jann has a great set up in her home to make any pup feel at home! Hardwood floors with plenty of dog beds throughout the home as well as dog toys! Jann is careful to meet the needs of every dog and ensures that each dog is fed and eats what they need to or doesn't eat what they aren't supposed to. She has a large backyard so the dogs can run outside and play! Jann is a serious dog lover and will take care of your pup and treat him or her like her own! She has experience with dogs of all ages and shapes and sizes! I'm always excited to drop off my dog and see what other dogs are at her house that day! I would 100% recommend Jann at Gracie's Retreat!
Thanks for everything, Jann!!
This was our first experience with Dogvacay and it couldn't have been more positive. I can't bear the thoughts of leaving our "little girls" in a standard kennel which reminds me of a jail cell. Our dogs are family and are treated as such. I was able to leave the dogs with Jann in full confidence as I saw the warm way she welcomed them into her home. If I was ever in this area again needing a place to board the dogs, Jann would be the first person I would try. Recommend whole heartedly.
I never worried even a minute that Fritz was in a safe, happy and comforting home. Knowing that made our family time away extra enjoyable. Jann goes beyond what is expected to instill trust. We feel we hit the lottery for petcare. Could not recommend her highly enough!
Being brand new to Idaho Falls I was desperate to find cage-free boarding for my dog. In my quest to find suitable care, I stumbled across DogVacay. I found Jann, and after our meet and greet I knew I had found the perfect solution. Rex spent 13 days at her home and was spoiled with love and attention from Jann and her family. She stayed in touch and sent me pictures and I could tell from Rex's expression that he was having a great time. I will use Jann for all future needs - she is the best!!!
I felt very comfortable leaving my little pup with Jann for the long 2 weeks that we left her. Jann did a great job assuring me that my pup was doing well by sending me pictures of her and updating me on how things were going. My dog seemed very healthy and happy when we picked her up. I would definitely recommend Jann!
We will definitely be return customers with Jann. She let us visit her home before the actual dates which made us feel very comfortable. Jann sent us pictures while we were away. She is the best for your fur babies!
Jan is great!!!
Lilly, our golden retriever, is very comfortable with her and in her home.
Her home is set up perfectly with lots of space and happy places for Lilly to play, explore & relax.
Jan is very quick to respond and accommodate any special needs!
She and her family are wonderful to work with!
Jann was so welcoming with the dogs, Keesha & Tina. We had met a few months ago for an 'interview' and they were very welcoming of the pooches. As it happens, there is always a learning curve, and Jann & Ted handled the dogs terrifically!! Upon pick up we discussed improvements for management. They were fabulous and love our pooches, and were very attentive!! Highly recommended!! T&P
We always feel uneasy leaving our puppy, but Jann made us feel so at ease. She welcomed our puppy with open arms and a love for all dogs. We felt very comfortable leaving him and knew he was in amazing care. When we came to pick him up, it's almost like he didn't want to leave, he was so comfortable. Loved the communication with Jann and she was very accommodating to our drop off and pick up schedule.
Jann did wonderful with our dog ZZ. She seemed to enjoy herself and loved playing with the other dogs. Thank you Jann.
Jann had our precious babies for an entire month. We received almost daily pictures of our happy pups and knew they were being loved and cared for. Our biggest concern is that they wouldn't want to leave. Thanks, Jann, for taking such wonderful care of them and we are planning our next trip knowing that our beloved pups have a safe and loving place to stay.
Jann was great! This was our first time using this kind of service and my wife was worried about leaving our girls (a Great Pyrenees and a Weinheimer) with a stranger. Jann sat with us as we let the dogs adjust while we discussed their behavior. In 20min, they were lying about and you could tell Jann truely loves dogs. This put us at ease and we knew they would be fine. We 100% recommend her if you are thinking of having someone dog sit your loved ones. Thanks again Jann!
We went on vacation out of the country for two weeks and I was so nervous to leave my little yorkie Lily behind for the first time. From the moment I left her with Jann, I felt that she was in the best care. Jann was so accommodating to all of our requests from what and when to feed Lily to even letting Lily sleep in their bed at night! She was careful to make sure that the yard was secure and that the other dogs that were staying were compatible with ours. The best thing is that Jann sent pictures and updates to me every singe day! My vacation was SO much more enjoyable knowing my Lily was in such good hands! I highly recommend Jann and will definitely be using her services in the future!
Sookie loves going to stay at Jan's. I think she enjoys her time as much as we enjoy our vacations. I cannot say enough about how awesome Jan is
This was our second time hiring Jann, and she was a lifesaver! My wife and I had the opportunity to take a trip to Europe, but that meant finding someone to watch our dog for about 12 days. Jann happily accepted and took great care of him. He can be a bit of a barker, and did give her some challenges there (which I felt bad about), but aside from that, it seems as though things worked out alright. If Jann will have us back in the future, we're happy to keep her in mind, but perhaps with a bark collar next time!
I was a little nervous leaving Rey as this was the first time I have boarded my puppy, but she seemed to have a great time. Rey immediately took a nap when getting in the car so I knew that she had been playing before I got there.
Jann was seriously the best, very attentive and patient. She let my dog sleep with her at night in the bed, gave her a bath after an accident, sent picture updates and checked in every day. I could not have asked for a better sitter for my pup , thank you Jann!!
Your dog will be safe, happy, and well cared for! Thank you Jann!
Jann is AMAZING! I could not enjoy my vacations without knowing my sweet Bella is with Jann. Bella is always excited when we arrive at Jann's house. I know Bella is comfortable and well taken care of while I'm gone. Jann is so loving and gentle with all the dogs in her care. I can't praise her enough!
Jann's home/backyard was perfect for Our two golden retrievers. Her home was super clean and she was a loving animal care giver. She obviously loves animals and is a very kind person.
Once again Jann has given Ozzy perfect care! She's a very caring person and it shows in the care she gives our child!
Delighted with Jann and with the accomodations. She took extra care to introduce the other 'boarders' to Bryce and was so warm that the dog, Bryce, was not at all shy with her (a first for my spoiled dog). I would recommend her to anyone! She even helped me when I got lost in Idaho Falls and had no one else to call to help me!
Great place for my Roxy lots of love an exercise
Great care. Cassie and Copper enjoyed it. We relaxed knowing they were well taking care of. Thank you Jann!
Jann was great to work with and took great care of our dog! We'll definitely use her services again in the future!
We left our 11 month old yorkie with Jann for 6 nights. We were nervous because we have never left her that long but as soon as we met Jann we knew we found a great puppy sitter for her. Jann keeps a clean house, and her resident dogs are kind too. Jann sent text pictures and updates on Chloe and we even knew Chloe was welcome to sleep with her if she wanted. We will not hesitate to book Jann again and happy that she offers this service especially for our small dog who needs socialization with humans. Thanks Jann!
A wonderful place to leave your pets. She does a great job. I once lost a pet leaving with a friend and I have no fear of that happening with Jann. I've used her services twice so far and have two more to go. And it's fun to get photos on your phone when you're far away! :)
We have never left our little guy with anyone, so when we had a big vacation coming up we were really nervous to leave him! However there was no need to worry! Jann took very good care of him and the peace of mind knowing he was in good hands was priceless!! We will continue to use Jann for any and all vacations in the future!! Thanks so much!!
Jann did a great job watching our puppy! He got to play with the other dogs and he was very happy and tired from a fun day. My family trusts Jann with our puppy and we definitely recommend her. Thanks!
Jann is the best! She took such good care of our little dog that he didn't want to come home! Can't wait to go out of town again because we know we can leave him in a place he'll be treated like family! Thanks Jann!
Such a great environment and we're glad we picked Jann to our watch boy!! We'll be back!
Fantastic! Both my husband and I left our pups knowing they would be well taken care of and they were! Jann has little areas for them to play or rest and it's just perfect! The best part I think a couple of times she texted me photos of our dogs and we could see how happy they were! Give her a call and board your dog (s) with her, you won't be sorry! Thanks Jann. PS. We already have a second booking set up for in a couple of weeks!
Jann did a wonderful job taking care of our German Shepherd, Bronson. We even received pictures and updates from her while we were away. We would highly recommend her.
We were extremely pleased with Jann and her care. You can tell she loves and knows dogs. Our dog got sick and Jann went above and beyond to take care of her. I highly recommend her and would use her services again! Thanks Jann!!
Jann was wonderful and we appreciated all the kind attention she gave our little Uli. She updated us with pictures and messages on how he was getting along. I think, too, that he had a good time playing with the other dogs--he took a long nap when he came home. I appreciated the "meet and greet" ahead of time as I'm sure it helped make Uli's stay a bit more comforting.
Jann is very flexible and was able to take care of my pug Mochi when I went into labor. I was never worried and knew Mochi was in great hands. She even sent pics of Mochi! You can really tell that Jann is a true animal lover and you can trust her to give high quality care!
Will definitely book my dog with them again when I need to. They were extremely nice and responded very quickly to my messages. My dog left very happy(: I highly recommend them to watch your pup! Booking her stay was very easy and convenient. She also took an adorable picture of my dog and sent it to me afterward(:
My dog loved her stay with Jann, and I loved how Jann kept in touch throughout our vacation so I didn't worry how my dog was doing. I will definitely use Jann for dog sitting again. I highly recommend her..
Jann is always wonderful. I never worry when our dogs are staying with her.
My "furbabies" are at Jann's daycare quite a bit during the holidays, they both get very excited when we turn onto her road, the barking, screeching & jumping starts and doesn't end until we pull into her driveway. They run up to her house & can hardly wait until she opens the door. They trust her & that she'll love & take care of them, that's worth a million bucks. When I pick them up, they are excited & glad to see me, but are relaxed & ready for a good nap. The anxiety I've felt when leaving them other places is completely gone. If they can't be with us, I"m so thankful they have Jann's "home" to stay at. I could not be more happy or pleased. I highly recommend.
My Miss Betty is a very happy girl....she is not stressed at all when I pick her up! That makes her mommie very happy!
We have been using Jan for a couple years now and feel so comfortable leaving our fur babies with her as we know she takes care of them as if they were her own!
Jann does a fabulous job. She is very reliable, loves our dog and we would recommend her to anyone. She makes leaving for a vacation so much more relaxing for us because we don't have to worry about Ellie! Thanks Jann!
Xena always loves her visits with Jann!
Sage spent a week at Jann's & had a blast! I love that she gets to socialize with all types of dogs there. I know that she is safe & well cared for there. I love that they let Sage sleep with them & the other dogs since Sage sleeps with me at home. Jann's house is like grandmas house for Sage. It has become routine when I go to pick her up that she runs from me because she wants to stay & play with her friends. After a full week there it took me a good 10 minutes to get her to stay & that was only because Jann gave me a treat to help lure her to me. I had a very relaxing trip because I know she was in good hands. I loved getting pictures of Sage having fun.
Our dogs loved staying with Jan, I think she spoiled them just as much as we do. They loved having her big backyard to run around and loved having such a wonderful and caring environment. I would recommend Jan to anyone needing a place for their own fur babies.
Jann did an amazing job with my Miss Betty! She was excited to see me, but was not insane to get out the door as she was with her other boardings. She sent pictures and made the experience great for both my pup and me!!
Fantastic as always! Our pups love it at Jann's.
Sage is a frequent guest at Jann's home since I work 12 hour shifts. Sage loves playing with the other dogs there & frequently falls asleep on our way home. Jann makes sure that she takes dogs that are well behaved so I never have to worry about Sage getting in an altercation with another dog. The house is kept clean with a double yard which is awesome. Sage always smells so good when I pick her up! I am glad I have found someone to take care of my fur baby when I'm gone long days & on overnight trips. I would highly recommend Jann to anyone.
Maggie May and Caleb had a wonderful time at Jann's. This was the first time I left them at Jann's or used a DogVaycay Service and I was very impressed.

Maggie May played her little heart out and loved it!

Caleb is my old man and he was the one I knew would have the toughest time being away from "Mom" as he is a one person dog. Jann had Caleb in bed with them but he still whined and she thought maybe the bed being so high scared him. So Jann left the comfort of her own bed and slept on the couch with Caleb snuggled in beside her so Caleb would calm down. That was impressive!

I would utilize them again.
Xena had a great time again. Thanks Jann!
Ripley loves staying with Jann! Jann is so caring and so kind and lets the dogs just play and enjoy themselves. We just recently returned from a week vacation and had left there with Jann. As a very attached and paranoid mama, I was not comfortable leaving my little baby for that long, but because I know how great Jann is it made it a little bit easier. She sent pictures to me to let me know how my Ripley was doing and it made me feel so comforted especially when I missed her so much. Jann is probably the first and only choice while we live here in Eastern Idaho. I wish more dog kennels were like her!
Sookie loves going to vacation at Jann's. She always has a great time and Jann is great about sending me pics of Sookie.
Xena loves visiting Jann!
We used to have 2 dogs and she took care of our beloved Pelusa like she was her own. Then Pelusa left this world and we took Alushe and even though he was still pretty sad, he seemed very happy to go back the next time we booked with her.
She really is a loving person and her love for dogs, you can feel it as soon as you walk into the door.
This was the best decision we have made about our Fur Babies stay. Jann was kind considerate and wanted to make her stay as much like home as physically possible. We had a meet and greet which my puppy Harley did just fine with. We took this opportunity to find a great place if we need to get out of town without her that she enjoys and doesn't get confined in.
I would recommend Jann to anyone who is wanting a home away from home for their babies.
Jann was very flexible and wonderful with gizmo. She knows and loves dogs. Jann is very organized and I was amazed at how well she took care of all the dogs and managed to keep her home and yard so clean and well groomed.
Jann has a very personal concern for my puppies well-being. Her home is inviting and clean. The door is open so going out for a potty break is easy. She makes sure she has the puppies secure before she opens the front door. She went the extra mile and made sure they got their hard boiled eggs for dinner every evening. The puppies even got to sleep with her! She texted pictures and notes which I really appreciate since I get lonesome for them. I will definitely be using her services again.
Warm, loving home. Dog friendly everything. Updates on kids awesome. Happy on our return = good care while away!
Once again Shelby and Duke were loved by Jann and her family. She is so good to our "kidz" and we are at such ease with them being there when we are away!

What a difference a trip is when you receive the photos and updates and know your dogs are happy and at someone's home rather than leaving them in a kennel.

I highly recommend her!

Thanks Jann ... will be seeing you again :)

Five "paws"
Our furbabies love staying with Jann and her family. It is so nice to have such a wonderful place to leave them!
Jann was so wonderful, warm and friendly. Even in such a short term she felt like family. My Weaver is not used to staying elsewhere but she was patient and loving. I also enjoyed meeting Her husband and grandson.
I've used Jann many times for daycare, this was the first time for a couple of overnight stays. I was so nervous, but her texts calmed my fears. They looked happy & well cared for. This was the first time they've been gone overnight, and so glad it was at Jann's house, where it's like family & their second home. I would recommend her over anyone else.
Jann is a true dog lover. My Golden was very happy to stay, when usually he is sad when I leave. Jann has a very clean and well organized home, is very flexible, and my dog came home happy. I would definitely use her services again! So much nicer than a regular kennel!
Wonderful as always! Jann's home is becoming their second home.
Thank you again Jann. You spoil our Maggs so much I'm starting to think she wishes you were her real mom! Thanks for not only taking care of her, but treating her as one of your own.
Jann is the best! Sookie loves going to Jann's to play and stay. Jann even texts me pics of Sookie playing during her stay.
Katie and Max loved their stay. They were happy and healthy and well loved when they were picked up.
Xena was very well cared for and had a great time with Jann. They are great with their guests and have a wonderful yard to run in. Jann even sent pictures of Xena playing. We will definitely book again!
Second time Lucy has stayed with Jann. We love her! :)
As always, Jann took great care of our furball. He was happy to see me, thank goodness, because I always wonder if it's so much more fun at her house than at mine that he might want to stay there! I highly recommend Jann. She's so knowledgeable about dogs and how to handle them, with love and good care, and treats them as her own. I can go away and have my own vacation without a single worry. It's such a nice feeling!
Jann did an amazing job with my 10 week old puppy. She was very flexible and loving. I loved the daily pictures.
Cyrus and Cassie came home relaxed and happy!
Jann is warm-hearted, and the dogs pick up on that and seem to settle in before I even make it out the door. I feel so much better leaving Cyrus and Cassie with Jann, than I did leaving them at the kennel. Thank you!
A wonderful environment for our two dogs. Jan treated our dogs like part of her extended family. I was very comfortable with her knowledge about the care of all dogs. So I knew my dogs would be safe and happy during my absence.
Jann was wonderful. She took very good care of our dogs. I would highly recommend her. Carrie
I'm a fellow dogvacay host and I'd highly recommend Jann. She watched my dog for a weekend and sent several photos and updates during those two days. I felt like Kia was in great hands the whole weekend. She was also very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times. Thanks Jann!
Jann is amazing! I dont hesitate at all leaving my dogs with her. She sends us pictures too! Love her!
Jann was so friendly and great to work with. We are so happy to have found this service and especially Jann. We will definitely use her again. Our dog was happy and well cared for. She treated him just like one of her own dogs and we didn't worry about him at all while we were on our trip. Thank you so much! We highly recommend Jann!
Jann was amazing!!! We didn't want to leave our 5-month old puppy at a traditional kennel. We found Jann on the DogVacay website and we are so very happy we did. She took very good care of our puppy, even sent us pictures each day with updates on how she was doing.

When you meet Jann, I think that you will agree that she cares very much for her dogs and will care as much for yours too.

We will use Jann again!!!
Wonderful as usual. Best Doggie Vacay ever. Jann makes Joey feel right at home & he always looks like he has such a good time. When I pick him up, he has to run to Jann to say goodby & get one final snuggle & love before we go. The more we use her the more comfortable Joey gets staying with her.

I never want to use anyone else.
Jann is amazing! We love being able to leave our dogs with her. Every visit has been wonderful and she is so great to work with.
I felt completely at ease, leaving my dogs with Jann. Her home is as warm and friendly as her personality. Her own pets are loving and well-socialized, and are sweet toward visiting pets. Her family members are supportive of Jann and her home business, and from what I saw in photos I received, are also animal lovers. My dogs were relaxed when I picked them up, and my 4-month old puppy kept running back to Jann for a hug and a cuddle.
I'm thankful I found Dog Vacay and Jann.
Sheri Forsythe
Henry had a great time. I was completely at ease leaving him for the first time. Jann was awesome with my pup and the other pups there. So excited to have found her!!!
Jann was absolutely wonderful! She was so nice and made Lucy right at home. I had no worries whatsoever. When we picked up Lucy up she was happy, and we could tell she was comfortable being there. Lucy will definitely be staying with Jann again when she needs a Dogvacay. Thank you, Jann!!!!
Jann is awesome! Would highly recomend.
When we booked with Jann, it was our very first DogVacay experience! Especially being that our dog is still a puppy (only 5 months old at the time we made the reservation) I wanted to ensure that she would be taken care of. Well, Jann met and exceeded our expectations! It was great knowing that she was very capable, loving and experienced! We would definitely recommend Jann and would use her services again should we ever be in that area in the future! :)
Ellie had such a good time. When I arrived to pick Ellie up she said a quick hi to me then followed Jann outside to play some more in the backyard, I think she was sad to leave her new friends. I received photos and text updates on what Ellie was doing and how she was during the week. I am definitely going to use Gracie's Puppylove Retreat again!!!
Absolutely wonderful experience. Joey is so relaxed when he comes home, tired and sleeps very well, but not upset in the least. Other places I've taken him, he comes back hoarse and seems to be a little agitated which is unnerving for me. He is our only "son" & invaluable to us, so am ectactic with her care of him. We thought he'd be jittery, etc., go thru separation anxiety worse then he did, Jann sent pictures & updates which were wonderful. She said he went to the window a few times looking for us, but that's to be expected. He was really exicted to see me, not upset, just excited. Joey jumps out of the car and runs up to her door with no problem, doesn't even bother to notice I'm leaving. Jann's house & yard are imaculate, comfortable and is a very calming & soothing environment. Jann is accomodating and tries to do whatever she can to make his visit a success for all of us. Couldn't be happier. I'm recommending Jann to everyone.
Jann was more than accommodating to let us bring anything that our dog would need. She sent us pictures every few days of our dog having fun and enjoying her time with her. I would and will be taking my dog back to Jann whenever we go out of town.
We LOVE Jann! The dogs LOVE Jann! She is the best!
Fantastic as always! Thanks so much Jann!
My dog Diesel had a great time and didn't even care that I left him because he was having so much fun.
We had a great experience with Jann. She is so friendly and was super with our mini aussie, Jacob who has a little separation anxiety. Jacob came home happy and tired from his dogvacay! We will most definitely use Jann again and highly recommend her to anyone looking for peace of mind when leaving their pooch.
My dogs loved being here so much! I received pictures frequently, and that helped so much when being away from my dogs! Jann is so amazing and we will be returning!
We left our dogs with Jann for 10 days. Although we had no data or phone service while we were away, I never worried about the dogs, I knew if something came up Jann would take care of them like they were her own. My dogs love her house, and I feel like they are loved there as well. Jann even let my little one cuddle with her at night. Amazing! Thanks again Jann.
Another great stay at Jann's! The dogs loved it and were totally pooped out after (obviously from having tons of fun)!
My dog Diesel had the best time at Jann's. I was worried about leaving him since he has some separation anxiety but Jann was really good at making him comfortable and giving him the love he craves. Will definitely be bringing him back there again!
My husband and I were going on a two week cruise and just hated the thought of leaving our two little "kids" in a kennel at the vets. Our son in Portland told us about Pet and that is how we found Jann. She was a wonderful host to Shelby and Duke and we wouldn't hesitate to leave them with her again. In the past when we have returned from a trip, our dogs have been hoarse from barking/whining at being left alone in a kennel. With Jan, they were happy to see us, but we could tell they were also happy being a part of her family for the time we were gone. Thanks again Jann!!!
Jann is awesome. Everything involved with going was so last minute. Jann made time for a meet and greet. My dog, Sookie loved it at her house instantly and immediately made friends with her dogs. Jann even texted me pics of Sookie playing while I was gone. It was a great experience and we will definitely be visiting Jann again in the future.
I cant recommend this more. Jann was so sweet with our dogs, they took to her and her little dogs immediately. Her home is immaculate and dog friendly, the yard huge and grassy. I was concerned a bit that her dogs would get on with ours when I saw her profile, but they are the sweetest well socialized little dogs that were happy to greet everyone. I hope I never have to take our dogs anywhere else. Thank you Jann!!!
Elli's vacay was PAWSOME! Jann is a wonderful care provider. She emailed photos of Elli playing and resting regularly which we loved. We know Elli is happy when she's there. We will certainly return when needed.
Jann's love for dogs is very evident. Elli received great care and attention during her overnight stay. Jann emailed us photos which helped ease our own separation anxieties. We will happily return for Jann's great service. S. Street
Our L.E. had a very enjoyable stay, and was very comfortable with Jann and her own dogs. Highly recommended!
I won't hesitate to call Jann again when I need to go out of town and leave our dog behind. From the Meet-and-Greet to the last night when they took Sadie home, I felt confident that Sadie was in good hands. Sadie looked great and was a happy camper. It was soooo nice not to leave our dog in a kennel! She had other four legged friends to play with, and Jann was genuinely pleased to keep her for me. Thanks, Jann!
Jann takes excellent care of my dog. Whenever we pull up to her house he races to the door because he loves it there so much. He has the opposite reaction when we pull up to the vet or to the place I was using to board him. Last time we boarded our dog at a kennel he ended up being severely dehydrated and we had to put him on IV. Jann gives him that extra TLC and she has a double lot in the back yard so he enjoyed the open space as well. We would definitely reccomend Jann!
Jann is the best pup sitter we have found, hands down. To start, Jann has her house on two fenced in lots so there is a lot of room for dogs to run around out side. While staying there, our dog, Lottie escaped and went for a swim in the canal. Jann not only caught her, but also bathed her and returned her to us clean. When we went to pick her up, it was clear Lottie liked Jann. Lottie is pretty needy and likes lots of attention, but she didn't come swarming over to us. We will definitely enlist Janns services again.
We LOVED our experience with Jann and will be recommending her to all our friends! For the same price as our local kennels, she provided much better service and love to our dog than he would have received sitting in a metal cage. Since we had to leave for two weeks, we really didn't want to leave him in a kennel or dog boarding facility because we didn't want all his training to be broken by the time we got him back. Jann was awesome about his little routines and he got along great with her dogs and her family! He was ecstatic as soon as he walked in the door and quickly made friends with her dogs. She has a lovely home that is well-manicured, yet animal friendly, so we felt very comfortable leaving him there. He also loved her big yard and her trampoline! We got text and picture messages from Jann while we were away, which our kids loved seeing. We felt like our dog had as much fun as we did!
Jann was wonderful. She has a very pet friendly home. She was loving with my dog and took great care of him. She was also very flexible with our return time. We will definitely use her service again in the future.
Wonderful! Jann is the kindest person. We have no worries when we leave our dogs with her.
Jann was awesome!! I loved knowing Jax was with a family and in a home instead of a kennel. He seemed to have a great time and was well taken care of. I also loved that he was able to socialize with other dogs. He didn't exhibit signs of anxiety when I picked him up as he had on a previous trip when he was left with our vet in the kennel. I will definitely contact Jann in the future. Thank you so much!! I'm glad there are wonderful people like you who love animals and are willing to welcome them into your home.
Jann has a great energy and our dogs seemed to have enjoyed her and they are going back to her next time we go out of town.
She understands dogs and really goes out of her way to make them feel comfortable. The words to describe her are not enough. Any dog will feel very good at her house.
I was very pleased with the care my older dog received in Jann's home. She was very attentive to his needs and kept me well informed of how he was doing. Gracie's Puppylove Retreat provides a loving and safe environment for four-legged guests.
Was so nice to have peace of mind knowing our dog was taken care of. We had a great vacation. Or dog had a great vacation with Jann and her family. I could tell he really loved the family. We lived getting the picture updates of him on his vacation. So great!
Kassie had a great time at Jann's. Jann was very accomodating to my situation and helped immensely. Kassie was well taken care of while she was with Jann.
We travelled from Portland for a wedding in Idaho Falls. I found Jann on DogVacay. I was so lucky to have found her! From the moment I introduced my dog to her, she was warm and welcoming. When I went into her house it was clean and charming. My dog immediately felt at home, in fact, I had no idea where he was when I left because he was somewhere playing with the other dogs and wasn't worried about me!

Jann sent me texts to reassure me that my dog was doing well. SHe even gave him carrots! His favorite!

I wish I lived closer to Jann. I would leave my dog with her every time I needed a dog sitter!
We loved Jann and the dogs were very happy. As soon as you walk into her house you feel welcomed by the hostess and her pack. We see ourselves going a lot more on longer trips knowing that our babies will be with someone who goes the extra mile to make my furry babies feel comfortable. She even let them sleep with her in her bed!!!
Thank you Jann.
Wonderful as always!
Our dogs were given a very warm and personal vacation with Jann. They came home happy and exhausted from having so much fun! We felt extremely safe having our dogs with her and didn't have to worry about them at all. Definitely a positive experience.
Jann was the perfect hostess. Her house and yard were well-maintained, clean, and dog-friendly. Her own dogs were playful and welcoming. We were very satisfied with her services.
Wonderful! We are enjoying our summer of fun thanks to Jann. We dont have to worry about our dogs. We know they are getting very well taken care of.
I'm so glad that I was able to find and meet Jann through dogvacay. Our family had had bad experiences with dog sitters and we were reluctant to go on family trips because we didn't trust anyone to watch our four legged family member. Jann sent pictures everyday and our puppy was so happy in all of them. I'm happy to say that Jann had time to focus on our dog's needs. We're already planning another reservation for her!
This is the second time we have left our dogs with Jann. She is wonderful! I didnt worry about them at all and they had so much fun. We will be back!
We will definitely be back! Great experience!
