About Jody

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am passionate about animals and have been in rescue work for years and we, my daughter and I, love taking care of animals. I do not work out of the home, so your dogs get lots of attention! We spoil our four legged friends, lots of walks, running free in our large fenced in yard; they sleep in our beds or where ever their heart desires; lots of play time and attention; never endless amount of love and fun here. I've been told by my repeat customers, they start crying from joy as they arrive at my street with anticipation. I hope you decide to let your dog vacation with us! :) Here are some pictures of some of our furry visitors....

This is the second time our fur baby has stayed with Jody and seriously she loves it. She was tuckered out all week from her weekend adventure. Jody seriously is amazing and truly a caring person. Your fur babies will love her. Also, we had some delays with returning and Jody was ever so accommodating. You really can't ask for a better host.
Another great visit! Since this was the second time Vienna was going to Jody's she RAN to the front door!
I will definitely use Jody, again. The moment I met her I knew Zoey would be in good hands. Jody genuinely cares about the dogs she keep. She sent pictures and text letting me know that Zoey was doing just fine and had fallen in love with her daughter. :-). I was extremely pleased, as was Zoey with her stay.
Jody has watched Keegan several times and has always taken good care of her!
Jody took great care of my pups!
Jody was Awesome! She made me feel so comfortable leaving my lil Shih tzu Piper with her for the week. Lots of Great pics too! Thank you so much Jody! So glad I found you : )
Jody was great-so informative and answered any questions we had-we had lots we were first timers to dog vacay! We appreciated her sending us pics and texts while we were gone. Our dog seemed very happy and we loved being able to pick her up as soon as we got home. Thanks for taking care of our furry family member!
Jody is very professional. She kept us updated and sent pictures too!
Jody was very sweet and took great care of our dog. We felt very comfortable leaving him in her care knowing that he would get lots of personal attention and also be able to play with other dogs while in her home. We would definitely recommend Jody to others looking for a sitter!
My dog has stayed with Jody 5 times! He always has the best time! She is awesome and I am so happy to know my pup is being taken good care of! She always sends pictures and gives me updates!!! So happy to have found her!!
Winston is very comfortable at Jody's "Doggy Inn!" He plays and plays in their big yard and is happy with his new friends. I would definitely recommend Jody!
Seriously I could not have found the such an amazing host. Jody was beyond amazing with my fur baby. After the initial meeting I had no hesitation about selecting her. I know my dog cannot wait to come back to visit.
Jody took such great care of Lili, who by the way is 14 1/2 years old. She made Lili feel right at home. She had a great time with the other dogs and was treated like a queen. I know Lili will love returning to Jody's home in a few weeks! Loved the pics we got showing her vacay adventures.
Jody was great. Max can't wait for his next visit!
This was Bear's first overnight at Jody's place. Bear felt very safe, secure and happy there.

We received several photos of Bear while we were gone for the weekend and it gave us peace of mind to know that our four legged angel was well taken care of!

Bear can't wait to return to Jody's place.

Paws up for Jody! That's dog speak for THANK YOU!
Jody was amazing! This was the first time leaving Vienna with anyone other than friends/family and we couldn't be happier. When Vienna got picked up, she actually did not want to leave.
Many pics were sent and we were kept up to date daily. We have already recommended Jody to a friend.
We really enjoyed our stay with Jody. Everything went well and Jody was professional and very kind as well. Forrest was tired from all his great play time. Thanks already planning our next stay
Our dogs were welcomed with a loving host who cared for them as if they were her own. Jody has a large fenced in yard that allowed them to get plenty oof exercise. I highly recommend Jody for taking loving, unconditional care of your dogs.
Sophie had so much fun with Jody we thought she might not want to come home. it is great for her to be in a normal environment. she loves the vet but this works so much better for pick ups on weekends.
My boy, Winston, had such a great time with Jodi and friends. He looks forward to his next visit in May! Many thanks for taking such good care of him!
Very satisfied!!!! The dogs were happy and content. Did not seem upset at all when we picked them up! Jody said that she "loved them" and she even let them sleep in her bed!!! She sent pictures each day
I was very happy with Jody, we had never left bandit with anyone so I was a little worried, but Jody made me feel very comfortable with her, she keep me updated and sent photos every day, bandit looked so happy in the photo, I will use her again.
I strongly recommend Jody as care for your pet while you are not at home. She took care of my dog and kept me posted on her new environment by sending me photos. Jody is an excellent pet photographer. By far, this DogVacay is a lot better than leaving your pet in a cage or even with a pet sitter. Knowing that my dog is in a good condition, I can have a peaceful vacation without worry.
I had not realized that I had not reviewed Fargo's stay with Jody. He did well. She did well. I will call on her again. She is flexible and sweet with the dogs.
Charlie enjoyed his stay with Jody. Jody sent pictures every day along with an update and spoiled Charlie. I definitely plan to use her services again.
This was my dog's second stay with Jody and again I was pleased with her communication while we out of town...lots of pictures!! I know my dog was in great hands.
Jody is such a wonderful dogsitter! You can really tell she cares about your dog while you're away. Manolo had such a great time at her home and received lots of love while I was away. Jody was so sweet and sent lots of pictures and updates. When my cell service wasn't so great, she was super accommodating and started emailing me the updates. I'll certainly use her again.
Jody is magnificent. My dog loves her and her daughter so much, I wonder if she really wants to go home!
Jody's the best thing that's happed to my dog!(besides me of course!) Chipper loves Jody like his mom!. He loves being with Jody and playing with his doggie friends. A true "home" away from "home".
Jody is the best! I was very comfortable leaving Dust with her after meeting her in her home. She was very knowledgeable about dog care and had a gentle and caring spirit. She asked me questions that I would never had thought about concerning leaving my doggy in her care which removed any doubts about my decision. The accommodations was more than I expected. Pictures were sent which I really appreciated. Jody was very flexible with drop off and pickup time. I highly recommend Jody.
Jody is the best!!! Chipper loves being at Jody's!! and I'm happy that she takes such great care of him. Thank You Jody!!
Jody is the best!!! I have never felt so comfortable while away from my pup. I really enjoyed the pictures and updates she sent me while Sophie was staying with her. She truly goes above and beyond, and she is the only person I will trust me dog with from here on out! :)
Jody is fantastic! She welcomed our dog into her home for a week & I'm pretty confident our pup didn't want to come home!! Jody sent us pics throughout the week & it was obvious how loving & invested she is towards the dogs she sits. I very highly recommend!
Jody was amazing!! She was very accommodating to my travel schedule and eased my worries by sending me pictures of Pep having the time of her life. I have never seen Pep so happy to be boarded!! I definitely recommend Jody and will use her again and again!!
Jody was awesome! We recently moved and my lab was having a hard time adjusting, but was thrilled to be at Jody's, where he could socialize with other dogs and run in her fenced in backyard! He was a handfull at first and hard to calm down, but Jody was patient and kind with him, and by the second day, he was fine. I can't thank her enough for working with him and I wouldn't hesitate to board him with her again.
This is our 3rd time leaving Molly with Jody. Every time, she comes back happy and now when she gets there, her tail is wagging and she is so excited. She loves it there! Jody spoils her and treats her just like family and her own. We love Jody!!
We love Jody! But, most importantly, Winnie loves Jody. Jody sends us texts and knows our Winnie's personality without us even telling her. Jody is the best!
Jody is the BEST!!!
What a wonderful vacay my Daisy had! Jody is a warm-hearted, loving care giver. She sent many photos of my dog along with updates on how she was doing. I took great comfort in knowing that she was in a home where she would be well cared for, and would get lots of attention. My dog had the biggest smile on her face, and I love that she was so happy!
Jody is absolutely the best!!! She LOVES my dog like it was her own!! I NEVER worry about Chipper when she has him!
Jody treated Lucy with great attention and care. I received many text pictures, which initially I thought was a waste of time but have grown to appreciate. I will certainly use Jody again and would recommend her to anyone.
Jody takes fantastic care of our dog, Rue. We get daily updates and photos, and Rue is always happy when we pick her up. I would highly recommend Jody. It is so nice to have someone reliable so that we can go out of town without any worries.
We were a bit apprehensive of leaving our sweet dog with someone new. During the meet and greet Jody took the time to ask questions, get to know our dog and addressed all our requests and concerns. The daily updates reassured us our dog was well taken care of and spoiled while playing with new friends. Jody is very caring and loving with all the dogs. It’s such a positive environment, you can tell they are all happy being there. We will definitely keep her in mind the next time we go out of town.
Jody is very kind spirited. Her house is perfect for
caring for dogs. Kennedy and Dakota had never done before and I was VERY nervous about my tiny babies and their wellbeing. She asked a lot of questions about my dogs during our meet and greet to be sure she understood each of my dog's personalities. Jody listened carefully to my concerns and addressed each of them which made me at ease. While away she sent pics with updates daily to let me know how they were doing.
I WILL return to Jody when I need dog care again.
Just like Zeke's first stay with Jody and her daughter, he had a blast!!!! He played so hard that it took him a couple of days to recover. We got great photos and videos while we were away. He is looking forward to going back again later in the summer.
We are so incredibly happy that we found Jody! We have never left Molly in the 14 years we have had her so we were very nervous; however, after the first visit, we felt at ease. For the 3 nights Molly was there, Jody spoiled her more than we usually do! The daily check ins/pictures were very helpful as well and she came back so happy. We will definitely be leaving Molly with Jody again!
Jody is great. So glad we found her.
This was the first time I used Jody to watch our dog. I felt incredibly comfortable with her right from the start. The meet & greet went really well as did the drop off and stay. I got pictures and updates daily. I could tell my sweet dog was having a great time on his doggy vacay!! I would highly recommend Jody.
Jody did a great job caring for our dog. She sent daily updates and photographs. We couldn't have been happier with her care, and we will try to schedule with Jody again when we go out of town.
Jody was great! Lucky was so happy to be with her and the other dogs. Great communication and wonderful pictures of him during the stay. Comforted to know he was happy and well cared for!
Absolutely a great experience starting with the meet & greet and ending with Zeke having a fun filled 6 day stay Jody's. From the moment we walked into her home, we knew that Jody was going to be our choice to leave Zeke with. She is truly a dog lover, attentive to requests and puts both you and your dog/dogs at ease from the beginning. Her dog Arrow and Zeke hit it off immediately and had a great time playing together. We highly recommend Jody to anyone looking for someone to take care of their furry friends.
Jody is GREAT to work with. She sent us multiple photo's and updates and kept us informed our entire trip. Thanks to Jody we were able to relax and completely enjoy our trip knowing that Lucky was happy and completely taken care of. We will definitely be using her again in the future.
Jody was great with my dogs. She sent me updates and pictures while my babies were with her. The dogs had a great time on their vacay! I'm so glad we finally found some one in our area that we can trust with our dogs. My babies will be seeing her again soon!
Jody is the very best!!!!! From our initial meeting, we knew our Winnie was in the very best hands and never once worried about her. Jody has the most wonderful energy with dogs and she gets our Winnie just like we do! She sent us daily texts and photos too. I am so thankful we found Jody and will call on her next time we go on vacation!
Cookie loved her week with Jody. Our dog seemed to be well cared for and got lots of playtime in the fenced yard. Jody seems to be a true dog person. She suggested we try a new kind of bowl for cookie and we went out and bought it. It seems to be working well already.
We got pictures and a text everyday which always makes me smile.
I don't think you could go wrong choosing Jody, and I'm sure we will be calling on her again.
Trinity had a great time with Jody and her new furry friends. Jody accommodated our last-minute travel changes and provided us with daily updates, including photos. Knowing Trinity was safe and cared for meant a lot. I would recommend Jody, and plan on using her service for our upcoming travel plans.

We had a great experience with Jody! She was accessible to answer all questions before we dropped off our dog and sent us pictures every day letting us know how everything was going. I felt so relieved to know that Abby was in a great home well looked after! We will definitely be back!
Jody was a great with my dog. She was great about sending updates and pictures while we were out of town and we really appreciated that.
Jody We a great experience with having our dog stay with Jody. Samoa , our black lab, was well cared for. Jody is very friendly , sends updates everyday with pictures. I would bring Samoa back again ..she came back a happy camper. D
Our best boarding experience ever!
Molly always enjoys her visits to Jody's house. She enjoys being with other dogs, and she loves Jody!
Our dog was very well cared for in Jody's hands. We could not have asked for a better person to care for her. We received daily photos to keep us in the loop of her activities. I would highly recommend Jody to anyone looking for an alternative to a regular boarding facility. Our dog was treated just like her own dog.
Jody is our #1 choice to take care of our dog Matias while we are on vacation! Matias had a great time playing with other dogs and cuddling at night. Jody made sure we got updates on what Matias was up to, which made us feel very comfortable. We were very grateful with how flexible, helpful and kind Jody was to us. We couldn't be more pleased with her service and we definitely recommend her!
Jody was wonderful! She took great care of my little dog. She sent me pictures and updates throughout my dog's stay. I would definitely bring my dog to her again!
Jody was amazing! I never worried about Percy once and I truly enjoyed my vacation knowing he was in such great hands. She sent me pictures everyday and I could tell that she fell in love with my little guy. I will definitely use her again.
Jody and Molly are a great match. They get along great and Molly seems to enjoy having other dogs to play with. Jody sends us pictures every day (sometimes several times) so we know Molly is having fun. We will take Molly to Jody any time we travel.
I have a regular pet sitter but for the first time she was going to be away when we needed her. I was in a bit of a panic. After contacting numerous folks once I met Jody I knew she was the one.

While I was away she sent me daily pics which was great. They all looked happy and relaxed. I knew they were being well cared for and loved and that I had made the perfect choice. And I'll admit, when it comes to my pups I'm pretty choosy.

I would highly recommend Jody and would without question use her again.
Jody was awesome! She very quickly made me feel comfortable with leaving Turbo in her care for a few days. She was kind enough to send me pictures of Turbo (who looked like she was enjoying herself) to me so I could see how she was doing. Jody was also very flexible with regards to timing (drop off/pickup) as well. I will definitely be calling Jody again!
Jodi was very caring and cheerful. Every day she sent us pictures of Molly enjoying life. Molly really enjoyed her time in Jodi's home. We will definitely use her again.
Jody (and Arrow) are the bomb! I got daily texts and emails with cute photos of my dog Hatchi and her dog Arrow snuggling up, playing and having fun together. I think Jody spoiled Hatchi as if she was her own. That's THE BEST feeling in the world when you are out of the country and you know your puppy is happy and loved! We will use Jody every time we head out of town. I've already recommended her to my mother in law and some friends and a lady I take a puppy training class with!
Jody is a great dog-sitter. She provided almost daily updates while I was away. She was very concerned about the well-being of my dog and was very attentive. I would highly recommend her!
Although we gave her a list of things about Peanut (5 month old mini-dachshund) she backed out WHILE we were on vacation. We were texting back and forth and everything seemed fine. Then, we get a TEXT (not a phone call) that she's got to find another person to take care of Peanut - someone better equipped to handle a puppy. Not cool. Freaked us out - we're in Florida on vacation!!! We had to make other arrangements long distance.
Jody was a great host for Oliver. She was flexible with our schedule and took great care of Ollie.
Millie is just a puppy and this was her first time away from us. I know she was probably a bit of a challenge, as she was quite nervous and unsettled when we left her. However, by the time we picked Millie up just a day later, she was completely carefree and comfortable, and having the best time with her new friends. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Jody and her daughter are fabulous, and I would definitely use them again again:)
Jody does a great job for us and has for a year now.
We left Simba with Jody for a week. We felt very confident Simba had a great time. We got several pictures of Simba out playing and having a good time. I would definitely leave Simba with Jody again!
Jody must have done an excellent job because our dog, Emma, didn't want to come home with us when we went to pick her up. She looked at us as if we were just coming to visit her in her new found home :) Thanks for your kindness to our dog!
Jody is personable and delightful--for our dog and for us. She clearly enjoys the animals that call her home their own while "parents" are away. Fenced yard and limited number of dogs for ours to enjoy.
Jody is very pleasant and easy to work with.
Jody took great care of our two dogs and even texted a picture to us while we were away. We'll definitely be back!
Jody was very sweet with Maggie. I can just tell she knows how to handle dogs and is gentle with them. I will definitely bring Maggie back to stay with Jody. Even though for me it's a 35 min drive it is worth it knowing she is with someone I trust and that she is being loved! I also like knowing how Maggie was along the way, so each day I would text Jody and she would either send a pic back of Maggie or a text letting me know how she was. She responded very promptly every time.
Jody made my Sadie girl feel right at home. It may have been the best Vacation that she ever experienced.

I only left enough for 10 days and she stayed much longer. Jody made sure that Sadie received the exact type of food that she was eating when I dropped her off.

I would not hesitate to recommend Jody to a friend or use her again.
I felt comfortable that my (3) dogs were being well cared for! We will use Jody again.
This is the third time I've had Jody watch my dog, and I can say with confidence, I'll be back! Jody is so easy to work with, very accommodating, and she takes such amazing care of my pup - I can't imagine ever sending my dog to a kennel again!

Jody - you're awesome! Thanks so very much!!
This was Shep's second visit and he was just as happy as the first time. We feel very good about leaving him with Jody.
Jody takes very good care of our dog. We are very pleased.
Jody took very good care of Sparky. We will plan to use her again.
Jody was a great match for our dog Shep. She and her daughter made him feel right at home and he was well loved. I would definitely let Shep vacation with again.
Jody was fantastic! I was very nervous about leaving our dogs with someone I didn't know very well, but after meeting her I was completely comfortable. She was great with the dogs and really knew what she was doing. She also responded quickly to my check-in texts while we were away and she sent pictures. My dogs looked great and so happy when we picked them up- I could tell they had been having fun! I felt so at ease knowing that my dogs were being taken care of so well! I highly recommend Jody!!
Jody provided the perfect environment for my dog and I had the peace of mind knowing that Phillie was being well taken care of by a loving family. I will definitely be booking with Jody again!
Jody was *fabulous*! I contacted her on short notice (just 2 days before my trip); we met the next day, and I dropped my dog off with her the following day for an entire week. Jody was responsive, asked great questions about my dog's schedule, about feeding, night time, daily walks, exercise, getting along with other animals, etc. She's got a lot of history with boarding and fostering dogs, and really knows how to treat them well. Our dog came home healthy and happy - I think she had just as good a time with Jody as my family had on our vacation! I will definitely be calling Jody next time we need to leave town. Thanks for everything, Jody!
