About Janice

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I started my doggie daycare 6 winters ago at the rv resort I moved to after my divorce. I got so popular in the resort, because the doggies loved me so much that I had to move to a larger location.
We are now on 1 1/3 acres with 9 areas for doggies to explore.
Homelike environment. No one is locked up.
Live webcam
fun fun fun. doggies go home happy, and very tired.
I so love having all my doggie friends come to visit, and what I love most is for you to know that your sweet dog is in a safe place.
My day starts at 6 am, so dogs need to check out by noon, after noon you will be charged the day rate. I will ask you about the next days pick up! For example I watched a dog that was dropped off saturday morning at 8 am, the dog was picked up sunday night at 11 pm! they only paid for one overnite, and i had the dog 2 days. so please understand the checking in and out, just like a hotel, but check out at noon. doesn't matter what time you drop off!
thanks love the Dogvacay dogs!!!

Jan 2017
I have known Janice for 20+ Years. She really cares about animals. She has always had her own pets, and has taken really great care of her dogs. She, in fact helped me get my 2 fur babies. First she found my Jack, spaniel-Scottish terrier. She took excellent care of him when I went on my trip and had him all house trained when I got back. He has been so sweet and the family loves him. I got him when he was a year old. Then she got Ozzy for me, he's a Chihuahua, he was also a year old. They both loved Janice very much. Janice told me it's better to have two dogs other than one so they don't get lonely when I was away from the house. I would trust Janice to keep or train any dogs I had or will get in the future. She is really good with dogs or any kind of animal for that matter.

Janice absolutely loves dogs and is excellent at communicating with them and their owners about care needs. She treats pets she cares for as if they are her own. In addition to the TLC she provides to each pet, she communicates with pet parents via texting pictures and comments about the pet. Her facility is clean and provides areas for group play and exercise. We never worry about our babies when traveling for business or leisure travel when in the care of Janice. We highly recommend her day care services.

Our 2dogs just love going to Janice's They have been going to place for a number of years have stayed over several times our last visit for 4 nites cannot say enough about how well they are treated. They both get excited each time they see her. She treats each one like her best friend Thanks again. Janice
Totally satisfied with care Molly received. Janice clearly loves what she does and provides a great environment for her guests
Tex had a great time at Janice's. He arrived home, happy to see us, but there were no signs of stress. Thank you Janice. You are so caring with our pets.
Janice has been looking after Kasi for 6 seasons when we winter vacation in California. Kasi gets very excited when we mention going to see Janice and runs out of the car every time we arrive. We know Kasi is loved, cared for and safe when with Janice.
Janice has a fantastic setup for all sizes of dogs. She listens to the dog owners special requirements for their pet for each visit. We had never left our 3 dogs with anyone but family and were a bit nervous to do so. We met with Janice at GVP Yappy Hour and then went to see her place before deciding to book overnight doggy stays with her. We have taken our dogs to her home 2 times for a few days stay each time. One of our dogs is dog and human reactionary and he's done very well both times. It is obvious Janice loves everyone's dogs and treats all of them as her own. She is very responsive through Facebook or text and posts pics of the dogs enjoying playtime or them soaking up the sun rays with their new buddies. I would HIGHLY recommend Janice's services for anyone. Which reminds me I need to book another session so we can see more of Southern California.
Janice was great. I was a little nervous because our dog isn't around other dogs much. But her yard is perfect for puppy play and our little Yorkihuahua had a great time. She is a real dog lover.
Janice was the nicest, most welcoming sitter! My dog loved being there and I was able to get picture updates on my pup. I will definitely be re-booking with her.
Janice is a very nice lady who took great care with my doggies and tried really hard to make her comfortable because she is shy at first when she doesn't know someone. Janice also kept me comfortable with updates throughout the day so I didn't have to worry.
Janice was very good with our boys. She has a great setup out there and seems to be constantly improving the property focusing on comfort,safety and fun for the pets left in her care. She sent e-mail updates and pictures so we would know how they were doing which really helped with our separation anxiety since they had not spent a night without at least one of us for over 5 years. We felt very lucky to find her and probably would not have without your great website.
Our standard poodle has been upset with us in the past for taking him to a sitter or boarding place. After this recent overniter, Wills was happy to come home, but still HAPPY with us, meaning he must have enjoyed his stay at Janice's. We will be utilizing her services again when we take a trip next month. We're so glad to have finally found a responsible, conscientious dog sitter. Janice is the real thing!
Our dogs loved their stay at Janice's. They were there for 14 days which is a long time in a dogs life but came back happy. Usually when I board my Chihuahua she stops eating but at Janice's we didn't have that problem. She also posts lots of pictures to set your mind at easy which is nice. I will be leaving my dogs again with Janice and I am so glad I found her.
Janice is great with all the dogs she takes care of. I would not leave my Ginger the Pug with anyone else.
Janice was very accommodating. She has a genuine love for dogs. We were moving so it made it very easy to not have the dogs under foot or have to worry about them all day. She even posted pictures on her Facebook group so we could see our dogs.
We had to leave on short notice and scheduled a doggie vacay for our 9 month old lab. He loved it.
Janice is a wonderful doggy host. I was worried my Corgi would try to be pack leader, as he is here at home with our Black Lab, and have stress being with other dogs as he has in the passed. To my amazement when I picked up Jake he was busy hanging with the smaller dogs while Natalie was running with the larger dogs playing ball. Jake was so calm and content as was Natalie. I credit this calm and submissive behavior to the awesomeness of the pack leader...Janice. She has a magic touch with her pack. My doggies stayed with Janice for 4 days and they where not in a hurry to leave. And they did sleep the next day just as Janice told us they would.Thank you Janice for taking such great care of our furry family members.
And thank you for all the updates and pictures. :)
Gunnar loves Janice and he always has the best time when he stays with her.
Janice is so great and Gunnar always has the best time when he stay with her. She sends pictures and he's always smiling. It's very comforting.
Janice was great we had puppies along with our two dogs gave us a great price we were moving at the time called needed a couple more days was no problem would definitely use her again
Hi Janice, Thank you for taking such good care of my pups. you are the best!
Our Shar Pei enjoys her vacation every time with Janice. Her facility and experience shows with the great care received by our Maggie. We will continue to place Maggie here whenever we are away.
Very nice and cared about the dogs.
Janice really loves the dogs who "vacay" with her. She has a great place for dogs and my Maggie felt right at home immediately. I felt zero concern over how Maggie would be treated and the whole experience was very good. I definitely will use Janice again whenever I have a need for dog boarding.
