About Jessica

32 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I live in a nice quite neighborhood in Blossom Valley. We have a big fenced back yard and plenty of space inside and out. I am home full-time with our 2 pugs and 2 sons. We go on daily walks to the park and around the neighborhood. We have worked with pug rescues and fostered several dogs over the years. We have been hosting for over 2 years and have experience with all types of dogs from puppy to senior. We spend most of our time visiting dog parks or activities in our back yard. We make sure we accommodate your dog in their daily routine including sleeping arrangements and special attention. Our home is very dog friendly with a safe and secure environment.

Siblings welcome and I am willing to discuss a pack discount for overnight care.

Your dog will feel right at home with our pugs and us!

I appreciated the on going communication before and during the stay. The flexibility of drop off and pick up was also a great asset.
Without any hesitation we give a Jessica H a 5-Star review and will happily board our dog with her again. Jessica was great - providing updates and pictures of our dog during her stay, and she was super easy to work with - always a quick response and great communication. Thanks again Jessica and family!

I had a 8 year old pug. First time using this site to find a dog sitter. Chose Jessica because she had 2 pugs. It was a good pick. Definitely come back again.
Matt & Jessica took great care of Bella, who is very shy! Thank you :-)
My dog stayed with Jessica for about 10 days he came back very happy and I was very satisfied with the level of care. They are great people and really love animals I would for sure have Hugo stay with them again if I go out of town. Thank you for all your help. I would completely recommend them.

Organized, on-time, knowledgeable, patient.
Felt very comfortable leaving my dog with Jessica. Bristol seemed happy and healthy when I picked her up.
Great family, great care provided for my dog!
Jessica and her family are Pawsome!! They are always available to help us out when we need someone to care for our Frenchie girls. It is clear that the entire family (young boys included) are naturals when it comes to caring for animals. Being "squishy-faced" dog owners themselves, they know that our Frenchies need special care. They have been so kind and generous with their time for us. They have never let us down. Stitch and Stella are always so excited when they see Jessica and her family and they return happy and pooped! Stitch and Stella thank you and would give you 10 paws if they could!

Jessica and Matt were wonderful! They have 2 pugs so they knew what to expect with our puggles. Keylie and Rory came back POOPED! They got the attention they needed and Jessica sent pictures each day. Will absolutely use again :) and I would definitely recommend them! Your dogs will be well cared for and have a great time!

I could not adore Jessica and her family more. The sons great Boo every time she comes to the door, and now Boo gets excited on the mornings I say "Do you want to go to the babysitters". The environment is warm and welcoming, and Boo loves that she has unlimited access to the backyard for sunbathing. I also like that the other dogs are screened by her family for temperament and tolerance. I recommend this sitter 100%.

Very accommodating and nice family. We have been using Jessica for a year and hector loves their home. Highly recommend.
Jessica and her family made the experience easy and painless.
It was last minute that my plans for dog care during my week long vacation didn't work out. I was in a complete panic until I found Jessica's profile. Something about her posting just felt right. When I spoke with her over the phone she was very clear about what to expect as she does regularly watch and own other dogs. Jessica shared her routine, talked about the level of engagement her children would have, and asked if I had any concerns, questions, or requests. I met Jessica and her wonderful family, they are just so sweet. I had another out of town trip quickly after the first, canceled other plans for Trouble and booked Jessica right away. He was so happy to go back, he just walked right in! She is very flexible and very accommodating. I have so much relief knowing I can count on Jessica and her family to show my lil guy so much love when I am away.

This was our first try with DogVacay and Jessica was wonderful. She made us feel comfortable in having to leave our dog with her for a weekend. She was quick to respond with updates and sent us pictures. Definitely a great experience with this new service.

Jessica and her family are awesome! I felt safe that my pup was in good hands and in a loving home where he got all the love and attention he deserves!
We met Jessica, her family and dogs, 2 pugs along with other dogs she was currently watching when we had our pre-meet. Wow, Full House but Tasi seemed to be fine when we chatted and I was glad she was able to visit and see Jessica's place. We agreed and let Tasi stay over the weekend. During our pick up, Tasi was happy as a lark and that really felt good to see. Jessica kept me informed with posts and a photo of Tasi chewing a newly found toy! She said she was doing great! I'm glad we chose Jessica and look forward to another visit when Tasi needs a friend(s) for a sleep over. Thanks Jessica!

Fantastic! So many personal touches. It was comforting to know Scrappy was in good hands while we were away!
Jessica is amazing, Cooper had a great time and we definitely will come back!
Jessica and her family were amazing hosts. From the moment we dropped off our pup for a few days, we knew he felt at home. After picking him up, he was in such great spirits. Thanks Jessica!
Jessica gets 4 paws up from my 6 month old lab, Gracie Mae!!! And, being a nervous mom leaving her baby for the first time....I can only say, Jessica's communication, care, concerns, and asking me the little details that real dog owners would ask. She asked about special commands I use, and how often to feed Gracie, as well as what is a typical day for Gracie. I felt extremely confident in Jessica, and her abilities from the first message, through the meeting, and leaving (me in tears cuz I missed my baby), and she updated me while I was out of town. If this review had a 100 star rating, that is exactly what she would get!!!!!! Gracie and I will be back to see Jessica when the need arises. And, I would absolutely recommend her to a family member or friend!

From the moment she opens the door, Jessica offers a warm welcome of your pooch into her family. Her heart's as big as her smile and she knows how to instantly make that loveable bond with your pup. She's very well versed in pet-care and dog behaviors as well as amply prepared with sectioned areas to let the dogs acclimate and feel at home. She asks all the right questions to assure your dog's visit is thoroughly enjoyable. I wish I could post the pic she texted me of my pup, asleep in the backyard sun, on her back and thoroughly relaxed without a care in the world. You'll have great peace of mind leaving your 4-legged friend in Jessica's care.

This was the first time since moving to the USA that we had left Ziggy, I was quite nervous before arriving. I needn't have been as Ziggy settled in so well, he got in well with their dogs & I felt happy to leave him.
We were only away for one night but Jessica sent me two updates which I really appreciated & obviously treated him like one of her own. It's obvious that this family love dogs & are truly happy to have them in their home.
I would definitely have this lovely family look after my dog again, for sure!
Thank you so much!

Great dog - loving family. We will definitely bring our dog back here every time we need help caring for our Ikee while we're away. Dean
My two fur babies, Tallulah Peach (Wheaten Terrier) and Charles (Shih Tzu), stayed with Jessica and her family for 10 days. Jessica sent me updates and photos throughout the week. Their house is super dog friendly and they with a nice backyard. I will definitely book with them again !!

Jessica was a wonderful host to Riley and made sue he felt right at home.
Baxter loves his new daycare!
Jessica and her family were awesome with us and our dog Queenie. Queenie stayed there as a happy dog! Their setup is nice, comforting and safe with fences. I would recommend Jessica's service to everybody I know. Thanks Jessica.
Poco is always very happy staying at Jessica's !
Jessica and her husband are great with dogs (and people). They are not only kind but very accommodating of your schedule and are willing to be flexible with drop off and pick up times. They clearly care about animals, and Jessica also takes the time to send photo updates of your dog's stay. Their resident pugs Leia and Zoey are also very gracious hosts sharing their toys and adding to the fun. We will definitely be seeing them again!

Perfect hosts. Dedicated and caring. Would return.
Jessica and Matt were very accommodating to our travel schedule! They provided just the right amount of updates to ensure we could relax on our vacation while having peace of mind our Whiskey was having just as good of a time. Whiskey came back looking and smelling great! Their kids and pugs are very adorable, would definitely recommend!

Another great stay at Jessica's. She and her husband always send great photos, and my pup comes back happy...and exhausted from all the fun!
Absolutely wonderful. You can tell she really cares for your pups!
Another great visit
Love leaving our pup with Jessica & her family
Lola and Misty had a good time at Jessica, thanks for taking good care of our girls :)
Jessica was just marvelous with my Terrier mix, Ami. She texted often and sent pictures of Ami. One of the photos she sent was a picture with her little boy, Alexander, giving Ami a belly rub...Ami only allows belly rubs to people she trusts....when I saw that photo I knew Ami had found a second home! And, yes, I would use Jessica again because Ami would feel comfortable going there! Thank you Jessica!!

Scrappy had a wonderful stay and was treated like part of the family!
We've left Sadie with Jessica a few times now, and always feel good about it. Sadie is not a very social dog and can be hostile around other dogs, so we were thrilled that Jessica and her husband were so patient and understanding. It's clear they're comfortable with all different kinds of dogs and want to be as hospitable and 'inclusive' as possible. We also really appreciate their flexibility in drop off/pick up hours. Our experiences with Jessica's family caring for Sadie have been great!

Our little pug, Sparky has stayed with Jessica and her family twice now, and the experience has been great. Sparky is normally shy, but with Jessica and family (along with their own 2 pugs) she has warmed right up and had a great time. Sparky seems to really love staying there, and I would highly recommend Jessica to anyone.

Our dog had a great stay with Jessica and the crew. It was nice knowing she had a great vacation, just like we did! Thanks!
Jessica and her husband were AWESOME!! They helped us in a pinch during the holidays when we needed a sitter last minute. They were so accommodating to our special requests for drop off times. It is clear they are true dog lovers LARGE and small. Leia and Zoe were also gracious hosts, sharing their domain with our stinkers. It was just like dropping them off at friend's house and we were stress free. Stitch and Stella had so much fun. Thanks again!

My dog Maya was quite happy and was clearly taken good care of during her visit with Jessica.
Jessica & her family were awesome! They took great care of our 8 year english bully. The pics she sent us looked like Sumo had a mini vacation on his own. Highly recommended.
Great host! My original holiday plans for my beloved black Lab fell through, but Jessica was able to accommodate her with a week's notice. She's friendly and responsive, and she texted me photos of Cassie relaxing on the couch, without my needing to ask. Highly recommended.

Jessica and her family were terrific hosts! Our pug, Snarf loves staying with them and playing with their two pugs =) He always comes home happy.
Jessica, her family and her 2 pugs were fantastic! It's quickly obvious from meeting them how much they love dogs of all shapes and sizes, but we were especilally drawn to them because we wanted our 1.5 year old pug, Capone, to have some snorting playmates! I felt so at ease leaving Capone in such capable and caring hands--especially after seeing the pictures of him curled up and cuddling with Jessica's husband and the other pugs. They even took a trip to the Pug MeetUp because the timing happened to coincide with our trip! If you are looking for genuine, caring, experienced pet-sitters who will treat your dog like one of the family, look no further than Jessica and her family! We will happily entrust Capone with them in the future!

My older dog Jazzy just finished her first stay with Jessica. She spent 4 days with her loving family. Her and her husband were so sweet and took the time to update me everyday and send pictures of jazzy. Being a pilot and gone a lot, it's so nice knowing your little loved ones are in a comfortable home. I will deff be coming back to Jessica and her sweet family.

Jessica was amazing with our two pugs! We were sent regular texts and picture updates, and she even took them to a local pug meetup! She was extremely flexible when we had to extend our reservation at the last minute. We're so glad we found her and her family on dogvacay!

My dog is part of the pack in Jessica and Matt's care and seems to have had a great time. He gets excited when he knows we are on our way there.
Jessica and her family are awesome!! I'm so glad I left my lil Lucky with her. Her other pups were very sweet, and Lucky surprisingly warmed up to them very quickly. I can tell he enjoyed himself, he was super relaxed and exhausted when I picked him up. I would totally recommend and use Jessica's service again. :)

Jessica & her family (2 2-legged & 2 4-legged) were great with our Bailey & Chewy. We did a meet-n-greet before arranging sitting and all 4 dogs got along great; something of which is very important at the onset. They made our 2 pals feel right at home, went nite-nite all together in the same room, which made our furry friends feel as part of the family. Very loving & caring home. Thank you. I would recommend Jessica and her family for dog sitting anytime.

My dog played well with their two pugs and ten month old son. It was a great fit, my dog loved the activity level and the structure. Great hosts!
Jessica and Matt were very gracious accepting my dog on short-notice, when another sitter cancelled at the last minute.
Our 2 dogs Bailey and Lilly stayed a night and their home was very accomodating for them and a very nice family as well :-) Our dogs were well taken care of and we received pictures too of them while we were away. It was a peace of mind that we could leave for an evening with our family knowing that our 2 dogs were being cared for so well and enjoying themselves playing, ect. Very good hosts, kind, caring, and good communicatores :-) Thank you for your hospitalilty for our furry kids!
