About Jace

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love animals, and have 2 dogs myself. I welcome your dog in my home and will treat them as my own.
I have a completely fenced in back and front yard so you know your dog/dogs will be safe and secure at all times.
I walk my dogs two times a day when the weather permits.
Unfortunately, I can't accommodate Pitt Bulls/Bully types at this time.

Very professional. Did a grey job with our pups and made us feel good about their interaction with other dogs even though our dogs aren't great socializers. We will defiinitely use Jace again.
Jace was available on short notice to board our little Sophie. He kept us updated on how she was doing throughout our 12 day trip, which we appreciated very much. Jace also made trips over to our place to watch for our cat that had gone missing prior to leaving. When Sophie came home, she was chipper and lean. Sometimes pet sitters over feed her, and she comes home fat, but this time, she looked great. Jace has a huge heart for animals, and we give him a high recommendation for your dog's vacay.
Jace replied quickly when I was in a crunch for a last minute dog sitter. After I dipped off my dog, Bentley, Jace sent a pic and text letting me know that Bentley was doing great during the stay. When I picked Up Bentley, I found out that the dogs had so much fun playing and Jace had even given Bentley a bath. I feel so lucky that I found Jace and am so surprised by the highest quality of care that was given to Bentley. I can't wait to drop Bentley off at Jace's the next time we are in Palm Springs.
It was our first time leaving our dog. He was there a week. Jace did a good job with him. He was fine when i got him.
Stella stayed with Jace this past weekend and I was very happy with how Jace updated me on how Stella was doing while we were away. My dog can be a bit nippy because she is blind and Jace knew exactly what to do and say to make me feel comfortable that Stella and the other dogs she cares for are in good hands. When Jace greeted me at the door whenI picked Stella up, Stella was so happy and excited. It is safe to say Stella will be vacationing with Jace again. Thank you so much, Jace!
Jace kept our 2 big dogs for a week. It was our first experience with DogVacay. We will absolutely do it again. We were very busy with family activities during the week. Jace texted us and sent us pictures a couple of times. It was nice to know they were good but not be overwhelmed with information. Jace was very clear to call or text anytime to check on them. They were tired when they got home but seemed pretty happy. Thanks Jace.
Jace was great to work with on checkin and checkout. Our dog was happy and healthy when we picked her up.
Jace was so awesome, I will definately be bringing my dog back! LOVE LOVE LOVE
Jace was very accommodating to take my doggy within the same day. Her cocker spaniels are very friendly and amazing - not territorial at all! One guest dog was pretty big, which made me nervous, so we did a 15min meet&egret so I knew my little dog would get along with the others just fine.

It was pretty hot a few of the days and the yard is pretty small so I think my Charlie couldn't get enough exercise. He's very energetic and loved to run around over half hour a day! He ran around like a wild man when we returned home! Overall, a very good stay.
Our dog Lucky can have anxiety when left alone and will be stressed for a day or more after we go on a trip. Lucky was happy and his old self when we got home. We'll use Jace again for sure!
Jace was very easy to communicate with,sent us pictures of our two dogs and responded quickly to our texts. All of our dogs beds,toys and bowls were organized and ready to go when we arrived. Jace also worked with us on our departure time taking the dogs an hour early to help with our travel departure time. Great experience in every way!
Jace was great and super laid back! Beau had so much fun and we never felt rushed! He had a great yard for our dog to run around in. I would definitely recommend him and we will definitely use Jace again when we come back for a visit!
This was our first time leaving our pup with someone we did not know personally. Jace agreed to meet us prior to our selecting him so that we all could see how we fit. That was the first plus. Then our dog was immediately comfortable with Jace - second plus. After returning home, we could tell by our dog's behavior that he'd had a lot of comfort, freedom, and attention - best plus! Jace also accommodated our drop off and pick-up needs. Jace is our go-to from now on.
Our german shepherd, Sasha, had a great stay with Jace. I really appreciated how flexible he was in dealing with all of our needs. I asked to drop off Sasha earlier than scheduled (at the last minute) and it was no problem. Jace clearly knows dogs and treats them well. We also received updates and pictures which we loved. Thanks!
Jace was everything I hoped for in a host! Very friendly and responsible and loving to my dog. Jake was so comfortable there he actually had a great appetite. Thank you Jace!
My little Lady and I both agreed on 5 stars for Jace. Lady was well cared for, loved, and just had an awesome time. For me who actually has anxiety about being away from Lady - Jace made me feel so comfortable. I knew Lady was in great hands. I got pictures of her daily which I so appreciated. Overall great experience. I will be a repeat customer! Thanks Jace.
Bogart my standard poodle felt right At home with Jayce. It only took Bo a day to win him over and get to Sleep in a real bed! Ten day stay and All was positive. Thanks Jayce Rich
Gerat location for us. Three times now and no issues. Jace is is very friendly and loves dogs. Good house for dogs big fenced front and back yard.
Jace was amazing, and her place was the perfect spot for my dog Toby to spend the weekend. Jace took time to introduce him carefully to the other dogs and as a result everyone got along great. I really appreciated the picture updates each day! I would definitely recommend Jace and will be booking again whenever I'm back in the area for sure.
Very quick to respond and Very responsive to my pup. Sent me a pic and update to show how my pup was doing and that was very reassuring.
Very accommodating to my ever changing schedule!
Jace was great! She's very quick to respond and accommodated our dog the last minute. My dog, Pony, had a big smile on her face when picked her up. Will definitely call her again when we're in the area. Thanks again, Jace!
Jace is a great dog sitter. It was my first time using Jace but I would go back again. My dog was cared for and she loved being at Jace's. Thanks Jace for being an awesome dog sitter, we will see you again soon.
Jace watched our Basset Hounds days while we were at Indian Wells Tennis Tournament. It took them about 2 minutes to feel at home and by 5 minutes the Hounds were in love with Jace. Each morning they bolted from the car to get into his yard and each night they were sad to leave. Jace even made a last minute, special accommodation for a change of our plans. Of course we will be using Jace next year.
Jace was wonderful with our dogs. They were well looked after and we were sent many pictures and updates over their stay. Thanks!
I just picked up jack after a few days with Jace. He had a BALL!!! I was very impressed with Jace when I dropped Jack off. she spent the time to introduce all the dogs one on one. I felt totally at ease leaving him. Thank you so much Jace!!
Jace is amazing! Flexible with dates and times!
This is the third time Maple my white lab has stayed with Jace and family. It is nice when you are dropping off your dog and she is straining at the leash to get to Jace for loving! Makes you feel more comfortable when your pup is obviously happy!
Our dog vacay experience with Jace was 100% positive. She is obviously experienced with dogs, as well as kind and compassionate. Her home is clean and the backyard fenced and secure. She kept us updated with text messages and photos, I would not hesitate to leave our dog with Jace again!
Our dog seemed happy and Jace was good
Jace immediately responded to my request and we were totally at ease when we met. Bella had a great time and Jace sent photos and messages about how she was doing. I fully recommend Jace, he loves and treats Bella like a family member.
Jace was awesome!! She was immediately responsive on a last minute request, and very accommodating with my two dogs. I could tell she was a professional with experience taking care of dogs.
I was very pleased with their stay, and both my dogs were happy when I picked them up. Jace is attentive, kind, and responsible, and I would definitely recommend her/leave my pups with her again.
2nd stay with Jace and couldn't be happier :)
Jace was an excellent host.
Extrememly fast response and communication when we reached out to see if Jace could host our dogs- we had made a last min decision to extend our Palm Springs stay.

Jace's own pets are Cocker Spaniels - and we know the breed to be wonderful. And we were right- they we no problem to be with our two dogs (Cockers also:)

We needed to drop off our dogs for the entire day - but one of them could not be alone (puppy of 16 weeks) - so Jace had to keep our puppy tethered .. Now that is NOT easy to find - someone willing to be so invested into caring for your dog. This alone gets Jace 5 stars!

Jace let us know an update with photo by text so we could relax during our time away and was always reachable if we called or texted.

When we dropped the dogs off the 2nd day - they both trotted right in and greeted Jace happily. Always a great indication of how they felt being there the day before.

Everything about our experience indicated that Jace is a serious and responsible pet sitter.

We will be back for sure whenever we hit the desert!
I was a paranoid doggy mom leaving my 2 labs for the first time and Jace made it so that i didnt have to worry. I felt very comfortable and anytime i reached out my questions were answered before and even during the stay. We received picture updates which was a great! Very happy camper :)
Jace was an excellent experience!!! Our dog Pippen was well taken care of!!! She gave us daily updates via text with pictures. Will definitely use her again. Dennis & Carol
Jace and her home with her two dogs were so inviting and comforting. Such a relief and I am so thankful I found her on this site. I Couldn't say enough positive feedback from my first experience ever with a dog sitter! Thank you Thank you thank you :)

Jace is professional, reliable and more than accommodating with timing. We were traveling in from a different town and she was more than flexible with our timing. She also texted me throughout the stay to let me know how Rudy was doing :)

I highly recommend Jace and will definitely use her services on every vacation I take to Palm Springs!
Jace is absolutely wonderful! She provides a very loving environment and clearly cares about my dog. She offers updates as often as I want them. Bogie is always excited to get there and returns to us clean and happy!
Jace was awsome.. This was our first overnighter with Jace.. Our dogs were happy at pick up.. They were clean and we could tell they had a pleasant stay. We have boarded them before at a pet store hotel but they seemed frightened and not comfy..
We appreciated Jace's service..
