I usually take one dog at a time,(unless otherwise specified) so they get our total attention. We have no cats and we do not have our own dog, we are too busy hosting! :).

It was a great experience! Recommend Jill highly.
Jill did an excellent job taking our little guy for walks.

Our miniature dachshund is like our child and we worry about him while we're away, especially since he requires special care on account of prior back problems. We were very happy to find someone as responsible as Jill to take care of him.

We would definitely want to work with Jill again next time we're away!

Jill is a very responsible person. She takes great care of our Maggie and gives her regular walks, lots of attention and makes sure our pet is always safe. Maggie loves that Jill also has a nice fenced in yard and is happy to go for return visits, so we know she is getting all the attention she needs.

Our dog had a wonderful week with Jill and her son while we were on vacation, complete with pets, hugs, walks, and time with the family. Jill has a lovely safe home and fenced in yard. We will definitely be booking her for dogsitting again!
Jill and her son are amazing people, and Jack obviously had a wonderful experience. I was admittedly a little heartbroken that he showed little interest in coming home with me ... what a reassuring feeling to know we have a second home to take our little man to when we need to be gone.
Loved getting our photo updates.

Jill and her son are wonderful doggie caregivers. Our pooch has been there several times and she always seems happy to return!! I feel very confident that she is well taken care of.
as always, wonderful
Jill was great! My dog was a bit anxious when she got there but Jill calmed her down. I highly recommend Jill, and I would gladly have my dog stay with her again in the future.
Jill is wonderful! Very welcoming to our dog, and really easy to schedule with! Paisley will definitely be spending more time with Jill!
Awesome job with our Great Dane :-)
Jill was wonderful! She accommodated us at the last minute when we had to add time to Zoe's stay to go to a family funeral out of town.

Zoe had a fabulous time! Although she is still a hyper energetic puppy, Jill was patient and fun and great to her. They played and went for walks and hung out.

We've already scheduled for another stay for Zoe with Jill and her family.

Emma has visited Jill several times now. Part of me doesn't want to give her a glowing review because you might take days that I and Emma want, but that's just not right. I work long shifts, and go away frequently. The only reason I am willing to do this is I know Emma has a great family to stay with, that take the best care of her and treat her like their own. Emma gets excited when we pull into Jill's driveway, and that makes leaving her bearable.

Our dog just loves Jill and her son. She is so happy and playful when we pick her up. We do not worry about her at all when were gone. Have already booked our next 2 vacations with her.
Jill was such a wonderful host to my puppy! She kept me updated with photos and texts, and I knew when I returned home that Kenzy was well taken care of. I would highly recommend Jill to anyone who is leaving their pup behind for the first time (or any time thereafter!)

Jill and her son were wonderful hosts to our two dogs. This was our first experience with DogVacay and it was a great one. Both dogs have their quirks and needs but Jill & team heard me and made Roz and Tobey more calm and comfortable than I could have imagined. Thank you!

Jill's family took very good care of our dog. We love them and will definitely use their help again.
Our dog is very timid but she took to Jill immediately. Jill sent us picture updates and our dog looked happy and relaxed. When we went to pick her up she was happy and relaxed. She wouldn't stop giving Jill kisses. We have already booked our next vacation.

Jill was fantastic with our dog Bernie. She took him on long walks and made him a new family member for the weekend. I highly recommend Jill!
Jill and her son did a fantastic job of taking care of Luke. This is his second time there. He was thrilled to be at Jill's house. Thank you Teresa
I am so lucky to have found Jill. She was able to accomodate my needs for a sitter at the last minute and was the perfect match for my dog. He instantly bonded with her son and loved being with the both of them. He was completely taken care of by her and her son for the week and had a great time. Her home is immaculate as well as low key and her fenced in yard was a bonus. I will definitely be utilizing her services again in the near future! :-)

Jill was friendly and took great care of my dog! I had to drop Paisley off on very short notice, and Jill was happy to accommodate. Her home was clean and dog-friendly, with a fenced in backyard. She and her son went for walks and made Paisley feel at home.

It was great to find a house without other dogs so mine could feel calm and special.

Thanks, Jill!

Jill and her son took wonderful care of my nine year old lab.Would highly recommend Jill as a dog sitter. Very caring, concerned and professional. Teresa O.
Bella had the best time! Jill and her son took such wonderful care of her, and took her on so many adventures throughout the course of the weekend. She was so happy when I picked her up I could hardly believe it.

In addition, we received updates throughout the weekend, and so we were never worried about her!

Bella can't wait to go back soon :)

Jill was a great host, Abby was well taken care of, I would recommend her highly.
Jill and her son were great. I felt completely comfortable leaving my high-enery Weimaraner with them while on vacation. Thanks to the terrible winter, our flights were cancelled and Jill was very flexible and kind about watching Cocoa for an extra day, and about letting me pick her up on Valentine's Day evening! Cocoa got lots of exercise and we will definitely be visiting Jill again soon.

Jill and her son are very loving hosts, and I'm confident that they took good care of my elderly dog, Gracie. Do not expect daily updates, which are promised on the Dog Vacay website ("When your pup is on Vacay, you'll receive daily photo updates showing how much fun your pup is having." ). I'll use Jill for this again, and hopefully this failing will be corrected.

Jill and her son were great hosts! Our dog seemed very happy when we picked him up.
Honestly we could not be more pleased with Jill. She is a true dog lover and a wonderful person to deal with. We literally felt like we were leaving our Golden Retriever with a family member! I highly recommend her.
