About Jesse

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello Pet Parents!!! My name is Jesse and my wife is Katie. We are big time pet lovers! We have both had dogs since we were children and I have also had cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and fish. As a teen and through college I would pet sit for friends and family. I also had a small dog walking business at my parents RV park during my senior year. I have always loved animals and enjoy getting to know each pet we take care of. We currently have two puppies, an eight month old American Staffordshire Terrier named Kevin and our newest addition, a 12 week old German Sheppard mix, Hobo. I found Hobo abandoned on the interstate and in much need of some love and a good home. He has quickly become part of our family and now we can't imagine life with out him! We live on a quiet culdisac in Coldstream with a good size back yard. We love walking around the neighborhood and taking the dogs to the new community park in Irmo. We always enjoy giving pets the exercise and love they need. If you are looking for a great place for your pets to vacation or would rather they stay in the comforts of their own home and just have us come walk and visit, we are up for the job and look forward to meeting your fur babies :) .

Jesse and his wife were awesome! We will definitely be bringing our pooches back for them to watch again in the future
Jesse and Katie were fantastic!! Very flexible and took great care of our dog Moses!! We will definitely book with them again!
Jesse was awesome! I felt extremely comfortable leaving my baby with him. Highly recommend!
We had a terrible experience with a "boarding" facility in December and vowed to never put our pups through that again. Then we found Jesse! Our puppies have stayed with him twice now and they have been so happy. We even get texts and pics updating us on their activities for the day. Jesse will be our go-to sitter from now on.

Jesse was awesome Glover felt right at ease with him and so did I especially since this was my first experience I loved the pictures he sent to me. I would definitely use Jesse again. Thanks so much for everything !.!
Jesse was great and very patient. Would definitely recommend him!
Jesse is awesome! We did a meet and greet, and I could tell immediately how attentive he was to my dog, Dobby, and also how great he was with his own dogs. Jesse sent pictures of Dobby during the week that I was gone, and I could tell that my usually anxious dog was completely at ease. It's so great knowing that your pet is being well taken care of while you're away! Look no further- you've found an awesome dog sitter for your next vacation.

Winston did great! He loves their dog Kevin. Came home worn out. I felt extremely comfortable leaving him with Jesse & Katie.
We are so pleased with the care Jesse and Katie provided our poodle, Addy. They sent some texts and pics that gave us assurance that all was fine. Addy returned to us happy and not anxious like she used to be coming home from a kennel.
We will definitely be contacting them again for future vacays.

My boy Otis is a bit more work than most....210 lbs....wants full attention and leaves a rather large calling card. I can tell when he comes home, how he has been treated, and frankly I am always worried about leaving him anywhere! Not for everyone!
Katie and Jesse were absolutely perfect for him! He was fed correctly, but even more important could tell that he was given the attention that keeps him young. I got text updates during the time and even pics. They are great folks and do what they say they will do.
My wife and I travel quite a bit so Otis will become a regular with them. Thanks again Katie! Otis misses you!

We have two furry babies and one of them has severe separation anxiety. When we have boarded in a kennel he would become extremely sick so we never took vacations. Then we found Katie! Katie and her husband were amazing and every photo we received showed two very happy dogs!! In fact, our older dog would have stayed forever! We are now in the process of booking our next vacation with no anxiety over what we are going to do with our babies! Susan and Brad O. Columbia, SC

I brought home two happy well adjusted dogs. What more could a pet parent want than to know their animals were relaxed while they were away.
Katie responses were always prompt. After the meet & greet I felt this was a good match. Received an update after his first day that all was well. We felt very comfortable leaving Shep with her and delighted that she lives close.

I'm sure we will want to use her services again.

Katie was wonderful!! Both of my girls cuddled in bed with them. I would diffently recommend her. Felt at ease on vacation. Do not hesitate to use her services. You will not be disappointed.
This was our first time using dogvacay so I was not sure of what to expect. Katie was awesome! She clearly has tons of experience with all sorts of dogs and she was warm and welcoming. She sent pictures to us during our puppie's stay. We won't hesitate to use her again. Thank you, Katie!

Leaving my dog with Katie is like leaving her with a family member. I never worry, knowing she's in good hands. Katie is by far our fave!
Katie is highly responsive, accommodating on short notice, and a joy to work with. Our Lab/Pit mix had a ball spending the day with Katie and her crew. I would leave Harvey with her any time, and recommend you do, too!
We couldn't have asked for a better experience through DogVacay. Katie and Jesse were top notch from the beginning... thorough meet and greet, great communication, and sent pictures throughout our pup's visit. Thank you!
This is our second time leaving our 15 yr old lab Hamp with Katie. She is awesome. He was there for 9 days. She would send me updates through texts, and pics. We will be leaving again in August. We will be using her again then. Highly recommend her!
Our Stella absolutely ADORES staying with Katie! Katie sent us picture texts of Stella throughout the weekend, and it made us feel so at ease knowing our dog was in good hands. Katie is our new go-to dog sitter!
Paws up! We could not have been any more pleased! Cutest couple with the cutest house with the cutest dogs! I wanted to stay with them...LOL! I can tell that Abbigail misses her new friends! We will definitely use them again....hopefully they won't be booked solid

The only thing I can say bad is that I didn't meet Katie a few years earlier. Her and her husband were both so incredibly nice, they clearly enjoyed both of our dogs, and it looks like they all had a really fun time together. Katie accommodated our weird travel schedule by picking the dogs up, sent us picture texts every day of them having fun, and even went out of her way to water our tomatoes because they looked thirsty. My wife said it looked like the dogs were upset to be back home and not still off playing with their new friends.

5 stars.

Katie and Jesse were so nice and welcoming. They made me feel good about leaving my fur baby with them! My dog seemed to have fun there and it was nice to get picture updates throughout his stay. Katie was really flexible about pick ups and drop offs which was so helpful, and when I picked him up he was happy and worn out from a weekend of fun. Katie also sent home a thank you note and homemade doggy treats which was such a sweet touch. I would recommend her to anyone!

Our dog Stella had the best time with her host Katie. We loved all the photos that she texted us throughout the stay. Stella seemed to fit in like a part of the family. She would often come home from other places with little knicks or scrapes, and would usually be on edge for a while. With Katie though... she didn't really care to leave!!! This is our new place.

I am thoroughly happy with the Vacay experience with Katie H and her husband. She was very welcoming and we liked her home very much. They took both dogs on daily walks and took very good care of them. I will look for them to keep our dogs when we need sitters before taking them to another kennel. They took daily pictures of their activities with the dogs and let us know how they were doing. Thanks so much Katie.

This was a last minute type of sit with just a few days' notice and Katie did not disappoint! She has a great set up for pups and being a fellow Dog Vacay host, it was interesting being on the 'customer side' of things. Our three dogs were happy when we picked them up and seemed to have received a lot of exercise over the weekend. They rested quite well on the 2+ hour ride home! Thanks Katie and Justin!

Wow. I don't even know where to begin. Katie and her hubby are awesome. Not only did I book her last minute, She took amazing care of Hamp. Hamp is a 15 year old, deaf lab. She treated him like one of her own. He got along perfect with her sweet dogs. She took him on walks, played ball with him and constantly sent me pics with updates. I will definitely be using them again. They felt like family and I am forever grateful.

Katie and her husband were awesome; a super cool couple! I needed a dog sitter and contacted her on short notice. She responded right away and immediately accepted my dog, Jake, into her family! She kept me updated with heart-melting photos. They engaged the dogs in physical activities, which is great for Jake, my active/athletic American Pit-Bull Terrier. When I went to pick Jake up, he did not want to leave! He was having a blast with their dogs including his new found Pit-Bull friend, Kevin! I could tell he was in doggy heaven based on the pictures Katie sent me. I also could tell that they developed a bond or relationship with my pup, which shows me that they are compassionate people. I would highly recommend Katie to any dog owner!!! Two paws up! or Four...for Katie and Happy Paws Pets Sitting! : ) ~M. Salley

This is the first time I have used a dog sitter and I was very nervous about leaving Gunner with a stranger but he immediately loved Katie. After our meet and greet I knew I had nothing to worry about and felt totally safe leaving my dog in her care. She was not only great with Gunner but you could tell she really loves animals and is passionate about what she does. They have a great home for your pets to stay in and they exercise their dogs often, which was just what Gunner needs. Gunner came back healthy, very happy and better behaved than when I left him. Thanks Katie & Jesse!!! I will definitely be using you next time I have to leave town.
