About Jan

26 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Why send your baby to a facility with cement floors and kennels, when you can have boarding, day care, walks, training or grooming from a certified DogVacay professional in a natural, home environment?

Whether at your place or mine, boarding is designed to keep your precious baby(s) on their normal, everyday routine in addition to the love, attention, cuddles and walks. And while on occasion there may be multiple dogs at my home during your daycare or boarding, 90% of the time, it's just your boy/girl and me.

In addition to love, cuddles and attention, the rate include care, feeding/treats (you provide), 2 walks, naps/tuck-in (please bring your own dog bed, toys, pillows, etc) as close to the same interval as when your dog is at home. And unless you bring one, your dog will never be in a cage or crate. I always send 3-4 pictures daily so you have total peace of mind and know your baby is fine, being well cared for and, of course, having fun.

Boarding in your home or mine is based on 24 hour increments available from 1 to 15 consecutive nights based on the time of check-in. An additional boarding night or daycare day will be required when pickup is more than 1 hour past the check in time to ensure your dog is covered under the insurance that is included in your DogVacay booking fee. Text for a free custom quote.

Regular drop off and pick up hours for boarding is from 7am to 9pm and included in the rate; before and after hour pickup (9:01pm to 6:59am) is available for an additional fee. Text for a free custom quote.

In addition to boarding overnight in your home, I also offer drop-in/drop-out services where I check on your dog 3-4 times from early Am to late Pm. Text for a free custom quote.

Daycare is available from 8am to 8pm in 4, 8 or 12 hour packages. Discounts apply for weekly or monthly bookings; Text for a free custom quote.

Grooming is available and consists of nail trimming (PediPaw), daily brushing, face-eye washing or bath & brush. Text for a free custom quote.

Discounts are available for multiple dogs and when booking multiple or extended care or service packages. Text for a free custom quote.

Dog ownership: I am a lifetime animal and dog lover, and have had the privilege of owning three of the most amazing dogs over the past 26 years (lab-rottie mix and chow-akita mix together, and a golden retriever) from puppy to passing. I also helped my son with his 175 lb. english mastiff puppy for six months.

In addition to ownership (26 years) and nearly two years with DogVacay, I have sat, cared for, walked and played with 50+ dog breeds of every size from toy Pomeranian to Great Dane over the past 40 years, and will continue as long as I am able.

As the owner of my own company for the past 16 years, I can work from anywhere on my laptop and will always be home or at your place, save an occasional meeting, event or run to the grocery store. I infuse my passion and love for dogs with my professionalism as a business owner to ensure each pet feels love, kindness and respect during every moment of their stay.

Education & Experience: AA degree (CCTT) in Travel & Tourism and a dual BA (UNLV) in Communications & Anthropology. I am a former athlete and current entrepreneur, musician, wine & food pairing expert and an outdoor enthusiast. My past experience includes various positions in the water safety (life guard, swim/dive instructor, CPR, WSI), retail, fashion, health food, travel & tourism, food & beverage, stone & marble and business plan writing industries.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and learn about my passion and love for all dogs. I look forward to pampering your dog iin your home or mine!

Jan sent pictures and updates every day. She and Brian took great care of Daisy. Calm, quiet house, with someone home much of the time. No other dogs, which was perfect for our older dog. There's a large area perfect for walks adjacent to their neighborhood. We would definitely book again with Jan.
Jan is awesome!!!!
We really love Jan. And even more important, it is very clear so does our dog. We've used her on two trips to Las Vegas where she's kept him for several days and are very relieved to know he's almost more spoiled with her than with us.
She sends us pictures and video's daily and it is something extra that we appreciate. Wish she lived in our neighborhood, we would use her every time. She's great.
