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!

Wow, great host. Kept in frequent communication and took great care of our pup.
This was our first time using DogVacay, and the first time our puppy had stayed with a stranger!. It was a terrific experience. We met Jan for a meet n greet and it was love at first sight for Zoey- she took to Jan right away and made herself at home.
Jan was great, taking Zoey out when she first arrived to help allay any separation anxiety. She sent pictures during the day, to keep me posted on their activities. I highly recommend Jan if you want a loving, caring dog person to care for you dog.
Jan is compassionate, professional, and dependable. I needed a special person to take care of my geri dog while I was out of town. My pup is 14 years old, deaf, and requires medication. Jan was able to accommodate his special needs. I am also over protective of my pup. Jan allowed us to visit to acquaint my dog to her house, and Jan allowed me to spend some time at her house when I dropped him off. She sent great picture updates everyday, and was prompt with text responses. I had a large delay coming back into town, and Jan was very understanding. I will book Jan again if I need a dog sitter. She is the best, and I know she treated my old man like family. :)
I was so happy I found Jan to care for my dog and cat over Christmas week! She sent lots of pictures and I could tell my furry family members were getting lots of love and attention. I will definitely call on Jan again!
Look no more!!! Jan is the Best. I didn't think it was possible for anyone to spoil my dog more than me. But, I think she did. Her daily pictures and updates were great. I could see in his expressions that he really was having fun. It was such a relieve for me to know that I could not have made a better choice. I would have no hesitation recommending anyone to use Jan. I will use her again.
Jan is very reliable and dependable. She is easy to get a hold of and my dogs love staying there. I would recommend her anytime.
Jan is the absolute best! I would recommend her to anyone. My dog is so well taken care of, and feels right at home with her!
We contacted Jan on very short notice, she went out of her way to allow my husband and I to have a worry free day. She already had 3 dogs in her home, Jan would of had us come over and introduce our two labradors to her pack, unfortunately that did not work out for us, so she arranged her day to come to where we were staying and to meet the dogs, see the routine, we went off and spent the day in Las Vegas and she came and walked, feed and played with the dogs, we had great pictures and a video. Jan was traveling 26 miles back and forth three times that day. When we got home late that night both dogs were content and happy. We would have Jan and her husband Brian take care of our dogs in a heart beat. Thanks Jan great job with the dogs and thank you for a worry free day.
Great job! Very professional, I appreciate all of the communication. Made me feel very comfortable leaving for a week with my brand-new puppy at home !
We found Jan while browsing countless dog sitter pages and boarding facilities. The reviews on her page lead me to read her profile, and thank goodness I did! She responded quickly and set up a meeting time for my big boy to come over and sniff around before our trip. He is a pit bull over 100 pounds and she handled it amazingly! I'm so glad she could accommodate the minor health issues he has and she constantly eased my worried mind with tons of photos and videos of him enjoying his trip. Her neighborhood is perfect for walks, and there's a park very close too. He enjoyed himself and had no issues, she is an absolute angel, and he will be going back every time we leave town. If you're a worried dog mom, I strongly recommend meeting Jan and seeing if she's right for you and your pup. Her house and yard are great and so is she! Will be recommending her to everyone I know who needs dog care.
Jan is excellent. She was great about sending updates, photos, and general information on my dog's wellbeing throughout the night and I didn't have to worry one bit. I also appreciated the flexibility and amazing care should put into making watching my dog an easy experience. HIGHLY recommended.
Jan was great! She was very easy to meet and took great care of my dog Sally. We met first prior to the stay and allowed Sally to sniff around. Her house is clean and comfortable and I felt fine in allowing her to care for Sally for 6 days! When I picked Sally up, she was in a happy mood, was clean and seemed like she had a great time with Jan. Jan sent me plenty of photos everyday so that I could see that Sally was indeed having a great time! I'd definitely pick Jan for another stay for Sally. While she does live on the opposite side of the valley and it is a somewhat long drive, I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to take Sally to Jan's place again. Thanks Jan! You are very much appreciated! From Sally & me.
Oreo enjoyed her time at Jan's. I received pictures and videos of her. Glad I found a great doggie sitter for my fur-child. I would recommend Jan. Oreo will be going back :)
I am so happy I found Jan! She is such a wonderful person and took such great care of my pup. She is incredibly knowledgeable with dogs and knew exactly how to take care of mine immediately. Jan also accepted my booking last minute which was a huge saving grace for me. The pictures and updates are a great addition to her amazing care. I can't say enough good things about her, and I don't need to look for anyone else to take care of my boy. She is absolutely the best!
Jan is great! She really cares for dogs. Jan makes you feel very comfortable leaving your dog. She sends updates twice a day with a cute picture. She walks your dog 2 times a day. If you are thinking about using dogvacay you need to use Jan!
Jan was so amazing with our fur baby Toby! I will be contacting her in the future!
She was very friendly with my doggy and I. She is also very flexible which is very helpful for me.
Even though our booking was last minute, Jan was very accommodating and willing to help. We did a meet and great and wasn't sure of our travel schedule which was in the works of being planned for the very next morning. Jan made a great booking suggestion and we were able a take a last minute trip.
This was our first time using DogVacay and would highly recommend Jan. Jan did an excellent job taking care of Henry, my 12 year old Boxer. She handled all of his special needs and made him feel right at home. She also sent photos everyday to help me relax knowing that he was enjoying his stay. Thank you Jan!
Jan is FANTASTIC!!! Our pupster loved his time with her, we could tell he didn't want to leave when we picked him up. She provided tons of photos and let us know how he was doing each day. Thanks Jan!! We will miss you here after our move to Florida!
Jan was fantastic to our pupster! We got frequent picture updates on how he was doing and when we picked him up it was clear he really liked being there. Will definitely use again (already made a reservation)!
jan is a real dog lover. with the weather being so hot she tries to walk the dogs early in the morning and also even into the late evening. i felt that my two dogs were in very good hands.
Jan was wonderful with my dog Bailey! She sent photo updates throughout the weekend which was so great!! I will definitely be using her again!
Jan was so great to my 7 y.o. Rhodesian Ridgeback. She treated my dog as if she was her own. I'm so grateful that Jan was able to accommodate my last minute trip and even stay away for a late pickup. I will definitely ask Jan for another DogVacay when I need to leave town.
She is just too perfect! Honestly...perfect pet sitter EVER! I love you, Jan!
Jan was way more than I hoped for. She took my last minute booking request, scheduled a meet n greet right away, and took wonderful care of my little buddy while I was traveling. She sent me lots of photos every day to reassure me that my dog was enjoying himself, and was a pampered pooch the whole time! I enjoyed my trip knowing that he was in good hands! Cosmo has found a home away from home!
