About Jana

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are an active family of 5 dog lovers and own a 3 year old German Sheperd (Hazel) that has been well socialized and adores other dogs. My husband and I were brought up having animals as children and we've owned 2 dogs together. Our children are 14, 11 and 8 years old and all are crazy about canines but they also have good manners and are respectful of our dog friends!
Your dog will get oodles of love and attention, belly rubs, outdoor playtime and a daily walk or jog. Our house is 1 block from Schmitz Park, a 53 acre old growth forest perfect for dog-walking.

Notice re: Booking Fee
Guests are charged a $40 overnight boarding rate per 24 hour time period. We're flexible on pick-up within a few hours but if a pup is going to stay another 4-12 hour day, please note that rates will be subject to a $20/daily fee. We will provide a customized quote depending on your drop off and pick-up time.

Our requests before we book a reservation are:
A meet n' greet beforehand to make sure our dogs will be pals.
Guest dogs must be crate trained to sleep overnight in a crate (to avoid late night dog party shenanigans!).

Thank you for checking out our page!

Jana and her family have taken care of my 5 year old pug, Bruiser twice over the last year or so. I could not have asked for a more reliable, caring and happy place for Bruiser to be when I am away. Jana's dog Hazel is very sweet and has become fast friends with Bruiser. Bruiser loves hanging out with the kids and has way more playtime and walks than he ever gets at home. Jana's house has become his home away from home, he loves it there and I am thankful I have a such a great place to take him when I have to be away.
Jana took great care of Allie as usual. Allie loves their German Shepard and didn't want to leave! Jana kept us updated with pictures and videos of the dogs having fun together. We plan to ask Jana to watch Allie whenever we need a dog sitter. Thanks Jana!
Jana was a great host to our dog, Harry. She took such good care of him, spent the time to get him more comfortable, and had a great time playing with Jana's own dog.
This was my dog's second stay with Jana and her family. He is an anxious terrier but he gets along well with Jana's dog. Jana is flexible about return times within the agreed upon time window. Romeo will be back soon!
We were very happy to find a local family that opened their home to our dog. Jana's family including her dog were friendly and accomoddating. Jana sent pictures and a video of the dogs playing. Our dog visited for five nights. We highly recommend Jana and will make another reservation with her next time we go out of town.
Jana and her family were very welcoming of both Piper and Koa. She sent daily emails and photos of the dogs, which was great to know they were so loved. Both of them came home happy and healthy and I'm sure missing the love and cuddles of Jana's three children and Hazel who became fast friends with Piper.
My 2 year old Springer Spaniel Boxer mix, Edie, had a wonderful time with Jana and her family! When I normally leave Edie at her doggy daycare to travel, she barely eats and seems anxious when I come to pick her up. Not the case this time! Edie ate all the food I had packed for her along with all the treats! She loved running around and puppy style wrestling with Hazel! Jana gave me updates twice a day with pictures and videos of the ladies playing. I truly do believe that Edie had a dog vacay with Hazel and Jana!
Jana and her family are the best!! She was so great from the start, accommodating my last minute request. She responded quickly and was very gracious and sweet. She made sure she knew Otto's daily routine in detail, and it really helped him acclimate to the new environment with very little stress. Jana's children were so respectful with Otto and they knew how to deal with him better than most adults (I watched them make sure that Otto seemed interested and wanted them to pet him before they actually petted him). She sent several emails and photos every day, including ones of Otto eating (which is amazing because Otto rarely eats in unfamiliar places!) and of Otto playing with Hazel (her ridiculously cute and gentle dog). When I saw Otto again, he seemed extremely happy and tired from so much play. I definitely plan on calling Jana in the future, in hopes that she will become Otto's regular sitter.
