John and Julia have a great home environment for dogs with a nice back yard and area for the dogs to move around. They take them on walks and allow them throughout the house.
We got updates and pictures, which I really appreciated.
They do have 2 dogs of their own that can be quite excitable.
What else can I say that I havent already, these guys rock!
A warm, caring and accommodating home-away-from-home. Will definitely be sending my Rose to visit again.
Jon & Julia are the best. They always make us feel as though our kids are their kids and they watch out for them with the highest level of care. We always get photos sent to us so we can see that they are happy. I hope that they are always available when we travel because we know they are well taken care of. Thanks Jon & Julia for all that you do.
We are very particular when it comes to our dogs as they are "family" and not animals! We were thrilled to find Jon and Julia and excited that they had small dogs too! Our meet and greet put all of our worries to rest as Jon is very kind and caring, and answered all of our questions and concerns. We felt immediate relief knowing our dogs would be in good hands! While gone, he sent us updates and pictures as well! Any problem or issues were handled calmly and we felt at total ease knowing our "boys" were well taken care of! We will continue to recommend Dog Vacay and can't thank you and Julia enough for taking such great care of our boys! We have more cruises planned and will be contacting you soon to reserve those dates! Thanks again from all of us! Pat, Steve, Tyson, Coco Hepfer
Another outstanding stay with Jon and Julia. They are wonderful hosts and save us lots of worry.
Jon is an attentive caretaker. Our dog came home after a day of hardy play. She got to have a much better time with more activity than she would have at home. I plan to bring her back in a few weeks. Ahh, the dog's life.
Jon and Julia are fantastic hosts! They took such good care of our Airedale Terrier, Mia. We had to find someone last minute and wanted our dog to live in a place similar to ours. We found this with Jon and Julia. We were so comfortable with them and so was our dog. We received pictures and text messages frequently letting us know Mia was doing fine. We were so comfortable leaving our dog with Jon and Julia. They are wonderful caring people. We are extremely pleased with DogVacay and Jon and Julia.
Thank You,
Vickie & Jim Parker
Once again Jon and Julia have watched over my two loves and have done a wonderful job. I would highly recommend them!
My first impression was that the home was immaculate and that Jon seemed like a nice, friendly, very calming person. What I didn't realize until my babes were with him for a week is that he is also a very loving person. My two were in a shelter for a very long time before I rescued them so they are slow to warm up and scared of being left. They immediately took to Jon and when I picked them up they were calm and seemed so happy. I cannot say enough nice things about Jon and Julia (whom I met when I picked them up).
We recently spent a weekend in Sarasota and boarded our little Yorkshire Terrier with Jon. We were very happy with the care that our dog received and will recommend Jon to anyone.
Jon & Julia took great care of my 8-month-old Golden Retriever for 10 days. Puppies - especially large ones - can be extra work but they were great about it. Fenced yard, bath, photos: all good things We were happy campers. Very glad to have found them.
Jon and Julia are such compassionate understanding people. Through the busy holidays the drop off/pick up times did not go according to plan and they were extremely understanding and flexible.
They send me daily photos and went above and beyond to make Buster's vacay the best. I will definitely request a reservation with them again.
Jon and Julia really love dogs and it shows. They are very compassionate toward our older dog and love our 'perfect' dog. Highly recommend.
Jon and Julia were great! We had a wonderful visit where Jon showed us a huge fenced backyard and a clean home for our dogs to enjoy. Jon sent photos while we were away and was very enthusiastic. All in all, a great experience. We're booking again for a week this time. Thanks Jon and Julia!
