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!!!
As of April 1, 2017 I can no longer take new large dogs, I will be 65 in July, I got knocked down by a wonderful 100 lb lab. He didn't mean to hurt me, but I learned I am just not as strong as I used to be. If I get hurt then I can't take care of any dogs. I will however still sit the large dogs that already come here. Just no new ones!! Sorry! Dog vacay offers many wonderful caregivers and in the winter I recommend Christie she does live far from me, I took care of her little dog the other day and she said" Yes I would love your big dogs!"
thanks Janice

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.

Ginger had so much fun at Janice's. I can tell Janice is a very special dog lover with Caesar Milan qualities! So glad I found her!
Our dog loves going to day care at Janice's place. He is is well taken care of, has lots of fun! Other than family, she is the only one we trust to take care of our precious fur baby when we are away.
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
