My husband Jim and I are retired. We have always loved and cared for cats and dogs. We have rescued many abandoned small to medium dogs from being destroyed over the years and have given them lots of love and a good home.

We love walking our pets throughout the neighborhood and throwing dog toys to them in our large secured fenced in back yard. All pets we care for always gets lots of hugs and treats. We are minutes from the Dog Park and local vet services.

As usual, Chloe had a great stay with Janese and Jim. Knowing how much they enjoy her and how well they take care of her makes it easy to drop her off when we need to go out of town. She runs to get in when we get there so I know she is happy to be there.

Janese is awesome. She is very flexible and takes excellent care of my dogs. We always leave with some sort of treat and/or toy. She quite obviously loves what she does and loves each dog she watches! I highly recommend, this is my 4th stay with her and we will continue to use Janese when we are in need of dog sitters.

It was my first vacation using Janese to watch my little ARA dog and I will definitely be using her again! Her house is perfectly set up for the dogs, big fenced in backyard, and her live-in pups are great! Would recommend to anyone!
Janese and Jim always take such great care of Ginger-she absolutely loves it there! She practically jumps out of the care as soon as we pull up to their home. They are always willing to work with us when our schedules change or we need to drop her off on short notice. I would highly recommend them for dog daycare or overnight:)

Ivy had a great time. It was wonderful to get pictures of her so that I could see how much fun she was having while I was gone.
Janese and Jim were great! I live that I was sent daily pictures and text on how Bailey was doing!
Janese and Jim was wonderful! They responded quickly to my request, she was available and she was flexible with my arrival/pick up times. During Ara's stay Jenese texted pictures and comments. She's great!!O my littel Ara was so tired when come back home:)

So happy we found you to care for Gracie. It is great to be able to be stress-free when she is with you. It was clear she was thrilled to see you both and happy to be with you. I am sure she thinks of you as her other family. What a difference from some of the other places we previously tried.

My dog, Joey, spent the night at Janese & Jim's on Saturday, October 22. Janese sent me several pictures and Joey looked as if he was having a ball! There were several shots of Joey playing or sitting in Jim's lap! He was a happy dog! I can also tell by how tired Joey was when I picked him up. A tired dog is a good dog!They are wonderful dog people! I would recommend them to everyone.

Thanks Jim and Janese for another great weekend stay! Buddy and Harley had a great time as usual, and enjoyed meeting some new pups! See you again soon!
Our 7 mo. old puppy stayed with Janese & Jim for a day while we were at work. They sent lots of pictures and our puppy had a great time playing with the other dogs. He seemed to feel right at home when I picked him up at the end of the day. He was snoring by the time we left the subdivision!

Janese and Jim always treat my dog as one of their own. They send me pictures showing Utley having fun in their house and yard during his stay. I'll always send my dog to them when I need a sitter. I can't recommend them high enough.
After having a great experience at daycare, Bailey stayed overnight so we could get away for a day. The pictures Janese sent were fantastic! Our dog befriended a cat, lol! She was so happy! We love the added touch of take home treats and Bailey loves to eat them! We will never go back to traditional boarding and look forward to using Janese and Jim again!

Bailey came for daycare and to see how well she took to Janese, Jim and the other dogs before going for an overnight. She had a great time and was so happy (and tired!) when she got home!
Janese and Jim took wonderful care of my Bear once again. I got pictures every single day of him playing which made me feel great and able to enjoy my vacation. Upon picking Bear up, Janese brought up some concerns about my dog and I just have to say I really respect the way she did it, because she was very professional and kind and never made me feel bad in any way. I am going to work with my dog on some of his issues and i am glad she brought up her concerns. Thank you for being such a nice person and taking care of him.

Thanks Janese and Jim for another wonder weekend getaway for Buddy and Harley! They had a terrific time as usual with their old and new friends! See you again soon.
Another great vacation made possible because of Janese and Jim watching our babies. Never have to worry about a thing and we know that our babies are at there 2nd home. I'd refer them to a friend and I give them 2 thumbs up!!!
My family was going on a trip to Florida for a week. My friend who usually watches our dog, Shippy, had a sick dog of her own and could not watch Shippy. Jim and Janese were so accommodating with very short notice. I was so impressed at the meet and greet. It was apparent that they are avid animal lovers and their dogs are very gentle and kind. During our trip, they sent me many pictures and updates that made me feel good with my decision. Shippy was very well cared for during her stay. I think she is looking forward to another visit soon! I really can't recommend Jim and Janice highly enough!

Gracie had a great time on vacation with Janese and Jim, as usual. As soon as she knew where she was she went right to Janese and never looked back at me. She was so happy to be there. It was obvious from the pictures I received that she was having a ball. So nice not to have to worry about how my dog is doing while I am gone. Thank-you again for a great experience.
Read More...
Another great stay for our puppy!! Janese and Jim are like family and I wouldn't trust anyone more, not even my family. I can go on vacation with my heart at ease knowing that he is in good hands and treated with love. Thank you Janese and Jim for letting us relax on vacation and not worry about our little guy. The pictures are awesome as well! So many great-funny pictures, we are continually amazed at the great shots, and they keep us smiling.

Teddy was well cared for and thoroughly loves staying with Janese and Jim. She sent pictures just about everyday of our 2 week vacation.

He plays with the other dogs all day and comes home exhausted, but he is definitely building some muscle.

We always feel comfortable leaving our dog with Janese and Jim. We didn't worry about him for a single minute the whole time we were gone.

Janis and Jim are wonderful. We are lucky to have found them, they have no problem fitting us in and treat ours dogs wonderfully!
Janese and Jim of "Loving your Dog" took great care of our pup Scotty!

This was his first 2-night stay and he had a blast! They sent photos of our baby throughout the weekend...this is such a treat and relief to see how much fun and love he was getting while we were away.

Scotty loves staying at "Loving Your Dog". It is a vacation for him too! My husband and I are so happy to know that when we are out of town or working, we do not need to worry or feel guilty for being gone, because we know that he is being taken care of by loving and responsible people!

Thanks Janese and Jim! See you soon! :)

Janese and Jim were great! This was the second time I used them. You can tell they really love dogs, They treated Fergie as if she were one of their own. Janese sends pictures everyday. I know that when I am away Fergie is being cared for by two very loving and kind people. I am most definitely going to use them again.

Baxter had another great visit with Jim, Janese and all of his fury friends. He is looking forward to his next vacay!
Janese and Jim are hands down the best babysitters are dogs have ever had. There passion for dogs is inspirational and I never have to worry about our babies when they're are there.
This was my first time leaving our 6 month old pup, Buddy, with Janese and Jim. They were so excited to have him and he was just as excited to be there. He spent 7 hours with them. Buddy was exhausted and happy when I picked him up. We will be boarding him for a week soon. I was initially worried about leaving him with caregivers I didn't know. I have no concerns now!!! Janese and Jim are wonderful!!! They truly love their dogs!! I will update my review after Buddy's boarding experience!

Thanks Janese and Jim for another great stay for Buddy and Harley! They had a great time playing with their old and new pals. They are looking forward to their next stay with you! Thanks again!
Janese and Jim take such good care of our boston terrier, Leroy. I do not feel guilty when I travel as I know he loves it at their house and they treat him like part of the family. I am very picky about who takes care of our furr baby and Janese and Jim are the only people I trust and know he is loved when he stays with them. Thank you Janese and Jim. I don't know how often I'd be able to travel if we hadn't of met you.

Janese & Jim are wonderful hosts! Clark absolutely loves his visits and we appreciate all the great photos. We know that he will be well taken care of whenever we stays with Janese & Jim.
Jenise and Jim are great! My baby Scotty had a great time and was given love and excellent care! This was the first time Scotty has stayed overnight anywhere but at family's houses...so I was quite worried! But "Loving My Dog" took such great care of him, he had a blast and made lots of new friends!
I am no longer worried and so happy we have a place for our baby to stay when we are out of town.. Scotty will be staying there again soon! I know he will have a blast and be taken care of by loving and wonderful people! I did a lot of research before choosing them and I am so glad I found them! Thanks Jenise and Jim!

Janese and Jim took the best care of Gordon as usual! It was clear that he had a great time in vacation and he lives staying with them! We feel good about leaving Gordon in their care and he will be staying with them again soon!
Trixie just returned home from a 9 day stay with Jim and Janese where she was lavished with attention and play time. It is great to have a dog sitter who we can count on to take such good care of Trixie. She is one of the "regulars" and always has a great stay with Janese and Jim.

Once again, Roxie thoroughly enjoyed her vacation with Janese, Jim, and her old and new pals. We received lots of pictures every day that showed Roxie frolicking around with her buddies with notes on how she was doing. We always feel comfortable leaving Roxie with Janese and Jim--they love her like their own. They take great care of her and make sure that she's eating and getting plenty of exercise. We are so lucky to have come across them--they're basically like Roxie's aunt and uncle now! Leaving your pet behind while you travel doesn't have to be stressful when you leave them in Janese's and Jim's care!

OMG, Janese and Jim are really nice and they have a great system going for all the dogs that they take in. Janese sent me TONS of pictures of Lulu and all the other dogs playing together. I am going to plan another stay for Lulu. I was worried about leaving her with strangers and strangers dogs. But it worked out great. I felt that Janese is a true dog lover and would not allow any harm to your dog. She came home and ate and is now napping. Thank you very much!! I will check out about another harness for her.

Janis and Jim are wonderful. They had my two babies for 9 nights during our wedding and honeymoon. I am glad that I left them in such caring hands. I will definitely be using them again.
Janese and Jim watched our dog Murphy for a week while we were on vacation. We are so comfortable with them that we don't mind a 40 minute drive to their home. We received almost daily updates and pictures of Murphy playing and being loved. That made our family vacation that much better. When we picked up Murphy, we could tell he was happy, loved...and spoiled! Thanks Janese and Jim...Murphy will be back!

Chloe spent a week at her 'home away from home' with Janese and Jim while we went on vacation. She is so excited to see them when we arrive and she has so much fun while she stays there. She comes home tired from playing. We know that she is loved when she stays with Janese and Jim.

Our dog, Sadie, stayed with Janese and Jim for a week recently. She was new to our family and we were a little worried about leaving her. She was so well taken care of and loved we would take her back there anytime. We received pictures everyday and they had some great advice for us about our new puppy. Janese and Jim have a great system for taking care of the dogs and all are loved and watched and safe.

We were heading out of town to my son's baseball tournament and once we saw the tournament schedule, we realized we would need an extra night of care for our dog. Janese and Jim were very accommodating and quickly booked another night stay for us, assuring us that Terra was welcome. Without their quick assistance we would have been scrambling to find someone to pick her up. We are so grateful to them and our dog has received excellent care from them every single time she stays!
Read More...
Terra (our dog) always has a great experience with Janese and Jim and we rest easy knowing she is well loved and cared for. And they always send pictures, updating us on how Terra is doing while we are away. Terra is always happy to head to their house...sometimes we suspect she is bored when she comes home and doesn't have all her doggie friends to play with!
Read More...
We are so happy with the care Janese and Jim give our dog! We can always relax and enjoy our vacation knowing that Terra is well cared for and loved. When we pick her up, she is exhausted from all the play time she had. And Janese and Jim are fantastic about sending us pictures of our dog while we are away.

Teddy is always so excited to go to Janese's. She kept an eye on them playing in the backyard and made sure the dogs came in out of the heat for a cool down due to the excessive heat.
My puppy Paxton stayed with Janese & Jim and had the best time! They sent a ton of pictures and she was always getting lots of love or having fun playing with one of the other awesome pooches. When I came to pick her up she looked so at home. Pax will definitely be going back whenever we are in need of a sitter!

Bear had a great overnight stay with Janese and Jim! I got the pleasure of seeing him play with another Goldendoodle like him and it was so cute to see him make a friend there. This will be the only place I take my dog to, since i don't think he could get better care anywhere else. Thank you for the treats as well when I picked him up. So sweet. Thanks again for taking care of my boy!

Sadie, our brand new rescue, stayed overnight at Janese and Jim's recently. I could tell she had a great time because she fell asleep as soon as we got in the car. Sadie will be going back for a week in Aug. Janese is very knowledgable and kind and I trust her to take excellent care of our dog.

As always, thank you Janese & Jim! Not only did Ranger have a fun day with you and his canine pals, you sent me pictures, even though he was only there for the day. Your willingness to accommodate our crazy schedule was greatly appreciated.

I'm am truly sad to be moving away from you guys. I always felt comfort knowing Ranger was so well cared for and loved by you. Anyone looking for an amazing home care provider for their furry family member would be lucky to find you guys. I wish I could take you to Seattle with us! I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have had you in Ranger's & our lives.

Blessings,
Kelli, Marty & Ranger

Our dog Murphy had a great experience with Janese and Jim. He was happy and safe and very well taken care of. Couldn't ask for more! We will be back again soon!
Our dog had a great stay at Jim and Janese's house. We received a daily email with lots of pictures of her playing with the other dogs. Since this was her first long stay there, we appreciated getting a daily update and seeing that she was doing well. We also appreciated Janese being aware of our dog's dietary restrictions as well as making sure she received her medication. Janese and Jim care about all the dogs there, and we felt that they considered our dog part of their family.

Chloe gets so excited to see Janese and Jim that she runs from the car to their house. We have never left her anywhere else and we don't worry about her at all while she is there.
Bear had a great day with Janese and Jim. They are such wonderful people who I know took great care of my dog while he was there during the day. She sent me photos and an update on how he was doing which made me feel at ease. I'm excited bear gets to go back soon for an overnight. Thank you guys!

Thanks to Janese and Jim for taking Baxter last minute reservation. He had a great time as always!
Baxter had a great week with Janese and Jim. We loved seeing the pictures of him playing with his friends. I never have to worry about leaving him because I know he is having a great time and getting lots of attention!!
Janese & Jim,
Thank you for taking such good care of Ranger for us! It's not often that we have to leave him for such a long time (17 days), but the pictures you emailed us daily really helped! We could see he was happy, having fun with the other pups, and most of all, well loved! It's such a comfort to know Ranger is treated like a member of the family when he is with you guys.
Thanks, again!
Kelli

Thank you Janese & Jim! Ranger sure enjoyed his day with you. I think it helped him adjust to his long term stay with you guys much easier!
Paxton had so much fun with Janese & Jim and made some great new doggy friends! She was really well cared for and I could tell they showed her a lot of love while she was there. I was so happy to receive pictures and updates about her stay after being nervous about having her away from me for the first time.
I have already booked her next stay with them and have absolutely no reservations about the level of care she will receive.
Thank you Janese & Jim!

Our dog had her first overnight visit with Janese and Jim. She did great! She's a timid dog and we had some concerns but she seems to have had a blast. She's worn out from playing with all the dogs and sound asleep now! We really appreciated all the photos that showed us she was doing well. We are planning to have her stay with Janese and Jim again on our upcoming trip.

Jim and Janese are my absolute #1 choice for dog sitter. Before I met them, I was always really worried if I had to leave my dog with someone else. (I almost didn't want to go anywhere where I couldn't take him.) Would he be okay? Would he be well taken care of? Would he be happy being with someone else? Once I met Jim and Janese and had Mitt stay with them during the day and overnight on occasion, all my worries went away! Recently, my dog, Mitt, had another stellar stay with Jim and Janese! This stay was for 12 days. Before this stay, Mitt had only been away from me over night on occasion. However, Mitt has always been VERY well cared for by Janese and Jim so I felt very confident all would be well and I was absolutely right! As usual, Janese sent me pictures everyday and let me know that Mitt was doing well and having fun. I could tell by the look on Mitt's face in the pictures that he was very happy and having fun. He came home very tired from all the fun playtime. From past experience, I knew that Mitt would be loved and well taken care of. I have seen Jim and Janese interact many times with the dogs they watch and they really love each dog they care for as if the dog was their own. They have years of experience with many different breeds of dog so I know they can handle anything that comes up. Mitt will be staying with them again for 13 days. I know I can relax and enjoy my vacation because I know Mitt will be having a great vacation of his own with Jim and Janese!

Another great vacay for Roxie and Sully! Janese sent tons of pictures every day, and we could see what a great time our pups were having. Sully even played some (which is unheard of--he'd usually make a great bookend!) The dogs were so excited to see all of their old pals and can't wait for their next vacay with Jim and Janese. No worries for me while we're away--i know our dogs are in great, loving hands.
Read More...
Teddy now sits and looks at me each morning hoping that he will be going to to Dog Vacay to play with his dog friends. He comes home happy and exhausted.
As always Janese and Jim are so good with Teddy! They have gone out of their way to make sure he is comfortable in their home and with the other dogs.
We needed to extend our vacation and no problem for them. It's like my puppies second home!
Another great day of my puppies being watched
Jim and Janese take such good care of Ginger, just as if she were their own dog. It's such a comfort to know she is getting such great care!
Once again, having Gracie stay with Jim and Janese allowed my trip to be stress-free. Based on the pictures I received while I was gone, Gracie was having as wonderful a vacation as I was. Thank-you again for taking such good care of her. She loves going on "vacation".

Our girls enjoyed another great stay with Janese and Jim! We will continue to utilize them in the future as needs arise!
Lila had a great time with Janese, Jim and their dog guests, as evidenced by the many pictures sent to me. Lila really likes playing with the new friends she makes at their house.
We give Janese and Jim five stars. They were above all, animal lovers. They treated our Beagle, Henry, with TLC. Janese, took the time to really talk to us and explain everything to us prior to our booking. Henry had a chance to meet and greet and acquaint himself with the surroundings. This made us so comfortable. In our opinion, this is a safe, loving atmosphere for our sweet pet. We are grateful for the time, attention, kindness and photos that we received. Henry agrees. We are looking forward to our next visit. Janine and Bill

Janese and Jim took excellent care of our babies while my husband and I were gone on our first vacation in years. I don't like leaving them, but Janese gave me the peace of mind that I needed to feel comfortable while away on vacation. She would send me pictures of the girls twice a day and keep me updated on how they were doing. I couldn't have asked for a better host to care for and love my babies as I do! We've already made a second reservation with Janese and will be continuing to use her services in the future. Thanks again, Janese and Jim!
Read More...
Janese and Jim are wonderful people and their passion for dogs is immediately evident when meeting them. We were hesitant to leave our new dog overnight, but they made the process very painless. The pictures they sent were great and really helped ease the separation anxiety we had. We will definitely be using their service again and again!
Read More...
Short notice needed a sitter for my dogs Snowball & MJ she was great like usual. always send pics and I know my dogs are safe. I've used her on several occasions and I'll keep using her moving forward
Needed a sitter for my puppies MJ and Snowball for Valentines day so we called up Janese for her to watch them and she did. She's got great customer service and sends good pictures as well. I'd refer her to a friend and I'll be using her again!
Clark had a great time as always!
I am always so comfortable leaving Clark with Janese and Jim because I know he will be well taken care of. He is exhausted when he returns home so I know he had a great time!
Janese & Jim were absolutely great! I have never left my dogs with anyone but family and they made this process so easy. They even sent photos of the dogs so we knew that they were having a good time! I will definitely be using them again in the future.
Read More...
Great communication, friendly and accommodating, lots of pictures! Can be somewhat chaotic at times due to number of dogs being cared for; but didn't seem to impact the quality of care one bit! Was always mindful of all animals and their care, and scheduled pick-ups, drop-offs and meet/greets accordingly.

If I could Jim and Janese 1,000 stars I would!! They are AWESOME!! They are so knowledgeable about dogs and know just what to do in any situation. Jim and Janese treat their doggy guests as if they are their very own dogs. They have love and patience for each dog that stays with them. They truly LOVE what they do and love the dogs under their care. I have not wanted to leave my little dog (3.5 yrs. old) with anyone because I have felt that it would be very, very hard to find someone that would care for him like I do. From our meet and greet, to every time I now leave Mitt with them, I have absolute confidence that Mitt will be loved and very well taken care of. He comes away from their home so happy---and tired from all the fun play time! As an added bonus, I get lots of pictures emailed to me during my dog's stay with them---even if he is just staying with them for the day. Jim and Janese are very personable and have been lovely to work with.I absolutely recommend Jim and Janese to anyone who wants their dog well taken care of.

I just cannot say enough how happy I am with Janese and Jim. My dog is always scared of strangers and skittish, and hates pics. Janese went through hoops to get me daily pics of Angel not only interacting with people, but playing with all the other pups as well, which I never thought would happen! Such a weight off my chest during my weeks vacation! I think this was really her vacation, not mine, and I was so happy to see her playing with all the other dogs! If you don't choose Janese and Jim to take care of and love your pet while you are gone, you are making a huge mistake! I will most definitely be using them again, and often!

Janese and Jim took great care of Lila. I received lots of pictures showing Lila having a great time with other dogs.
Janese and Jim are very committed to keep the dogs happy
Janese and Jim are wonderful hosts! Clark comes home exhausted, which is the sign of a pup who has had a good time on his vacation! I can enjoy myself when I am away from home knowing that Clark is in good hands while I am away.

Janese always sends such cute pictures, too!

We have been leaving Sadie with Janese and Jim for a number of years. Always an entirely awesome experience. The patience and caring shown for the "boarders" is phenomenal. The most recent stay for Sadie was a sort of test because Sadie has some new health and mobility issues, along with advancing age. Everything was handled perfectly. This is the only way to go for having a dog cared for when we must be away.

Another great couple of play date's for Teddy. The weather was good so all the dogs played outside in the back yard. He comes home happy and tired!
This was my first time using DogVacay, and I could not be happier. Janese and Jim treated my dog, Fergie, as if she was one of their own. I have been looking for a place where my dog would be loved when I was not home, and I have found it. Their home is very pet friendly! You can tell Jim and Janese are people who love animals, are knowledgeable about them, love what they are doing. Not to mention, Janese is very professional. She calls and/or emails you about scheduling dates, drop-off, and pick-up times. I was a little nervous about how Fergie would react in a pack environment, since she is an only dog, but she adjusted fine. I went for a meet and greet first. Then I tried having her stay for one night. Now I am going to have her stay for a week when I go on vacation. If Fergie cannot be with me, Jim and Janese are the next best thing!

Janese and Jim are amazing! My little Angel is afraid of so many things and people, and getting pics and updates of Angel playing with the other dogs was so comforting. They are absolutely amazing with animals! I can go on my long vacation now and breathe, as I know Angel will be in good hands and she will have a ball playing with the other dogs. I am so glad I found you! Thank you so much!

Janese and Jim are trustworthy pet sitters, your animals are safe and well cared for.
Ginger had an awesome time as usual! She loves her time with Janese and Jim and all the pups. I love that she is well cared for and she doesn't come home with kennel cough or the canine flu...this happened to us last year when we boarded her at a kennel. She is always so tired from all of the fun she has, which is always a good sign:)

Yadi, our 2 year old puppy had a great time with Janese and Jim over Spring Break. Janese sent pictures everyday so we could see how much fun he was having. He enjoyed his time with them and the other dogs. When he came home, he was tired from his vacation too! It was so nice to know he was in such good, loving hands while we were gone.

Ditka had a blast!
Utley had a great time with Janese, Jim and their other guests. Utley has fear aggression and Janese and Jim had the patience to deal with his fears and help him open up and be affectionate. I would definitely have him stay with them again.
Janese and Jim's house is Trixie's favorite place to go. She is always showered with attention & loves to see all the other dogs. She has a great time and comes home tired from the activity. She will be back for sure in a few months when we next go out of town overnight. I know she can't wait!

Teddy is now hopeful everyday that I leave for work that I will take him to Janese's. He loves going to her house and playing all day with the other dogs. She takes good care of him and he is exhausted when I pick him up.
I love being able to leave Lucy with Janese and Jim! As always Lucy is excited to get in the car when I tell her she is going to see Janese---and of course Scrappy who Lucy loves to play with. Can't image having her stay with anyone else!
Stanley and Winnie had a great time again staying with Jim and Janese. :) They came home exhausted from playing so much!! Will definitely use Jim and Janese again!
Thank you, once again! I'm running out of things to say about how great you and Jim are! As a long time client, we are thankful to know we have such caring and trustworthy people to turn to when we need someone to care for Wrigley. He is ready looking forward to his multiple summer visits!!

Gracie loves going to daycare with Janese and Jim. She is very excited to see them and her friends. Based on her happiness when we arrive and the great pictures showing her playing with her friends she has a wonderful time. Daycare with Janese and Jim is a wonderful way to enrich her life and provide new and fun experiences for her.

Janese and Jim's house is Chloe's home away from home. She has a great time and comes home tired from playing. We know she is well taken care of and she has never stayed anywhere else.
Thank you so much! Ditka had a wonderful time!
As always they hare lovely people and pet lovers without a doubt
They are lovely and take such good care of my Truffle. I have no worries when I leave her with Janese and Jim
As always, Janese and Jim were great. We received daily pictures of Roxie having a wonderful vacation with both old and new friends. Roxie has such a great time playing in the yard and frolicking with the other dogs. We are so lucky to have found Janese and Jim to care for our dog. We already booked Roxie's next vacation!!

Thanks Janese and Jim for taking care of Buddy and Harley! We loved seeing the numerous photos each day of the both of them and the fun they were having with all of their friends! They came home exhausted but happy!
Thank you Janese and Jim! Ranger had such a nice stay last week. He's looking forward to spending time with you again, soon! Thank you for all the pictures, too. Your daily emails make the time we're away so much easier. It's a comfort to know he is well taken care of and loved!

My dog, Joey, recently stayed with Janese and Jim for two weeks. If the pictures that Janese emailed me while I was gone were any indication, Joey had a wonderful stay. Joey seemed to love sitting on Jim's lap, hanging out with the other dogs and even action shots. I could tell he was having a great time. I'm so happy I found them and Joey could stay in a great home with people that took such good care of him. I would recommend Janese and Jim to anyone looking for a place for your dog. They are great!
Read More...
Kobie spent the night at Janese and Jims so I could go out of town. They sent a lot of cute pictures. It was very reassuring to know Kobie was well taken care of while I was gone. I would highly recommend them!
Janese and Jim are the best. Teddy loves going there once a week for a play date, in fact he now whines when we make a turn 6 blocks away. He comes home exhausted from playing all day. He is well cared for and loved by Janese & Jim.
Our pups always have a great time with Janese and Jim!!
Thanks so much to Janese and Jim. This was the first time that we left Yadi, our 1 1/2 year old puppy. He had such a great weekend with them and playing with all of the other dogs. Thanks so much for sending the pictures too so we could see how much fun he was having! We feel so much more comfortable planning trips now that we know Yadi will be in great hands with Janese and Jim.

Gracie loves to play with her friends at daycare. She comes home a happy and exhausted dog! She is thrilled to see Janese and Jim and does not look back. She runs to the gate to get into the yard. Thanks again for making the experience such fun for her and worry-free for me.
Read More...
Joey spent the night at Janese & Jim's house on Saturday and if the pictures were any indication, he had a great time. Janese & Jim were wonderful hosts who know dogs well and obviously loved them. They sent me lots of pictures and Joey seemed to love sitting on Jim's lap! I'm happy I found them and feel very confident that Joey will be well taken care of during my upcoming vacation. I would highly recommend them.

Halas had a great time with his sitters. Janese and Jim has a very professional approach, and a great environment for the dogs. I will definitely use them again.
Janese and Jim are lovely, they did everything possible to make Truffle feel welcome introducing her to the other dogs one by one and helping her feel comfortable, Janese spoke with me extensively about Truffs needs and habits and offers assurance and reassurance that she would be safe and happy in their home; I am cofrortable with Truffle in their care and will use them again most definitely.

Jim and Janese are the most wonderful caregivers. You can tell how much they love all the dogs they take care of and the dogs just love them too! From the pictures Janese sends me, it warms my heart to see how much fun Sky is having running and playing. I wish I could take her everyday!
Read More...
Thank you so much Janese & Jim.
This was an add-on day to a longer reservation. We appreciate Janese and Jim allowing us to extend the reservation in advance. Gordon always has a great time!
This was an add-on day to a longer reservation. We appreciate Janese and Jim being allowing us to extend the reservation in advance. Gordon always has a great time!
Gordon is always happy to see Janese at drop-off and he always gives Janese and Jim lots of kisses before he leaves, so so we know he loves them. We appreciate that Gordon feels comfortable in their home. It is evident from the photos they send that he fits right in! We can relax on our trips knowing that Gordon is safe, comfy, and having fun!

Janese and Jim went above and beyond for me in a time that I desperately needed someone. They made me feel comfortable leaving my 2 dogs there upon our first "introduction visit". They kept me updated with many pictures of both dogs having a good time throughout both days. I'd highly recommend them and will happily use them in the future.

Gertie had a great time with Janese & Jim during her 1 week stay! It truly is her home away from home and we are so thankful to have found them to take care of her since we have no family close by. I got pictures and updates everyday, and I was happy to see that Gertie was acting like her usual self while she was there (although I think she had alot more fun there). Thanks Janese & Jim for taking such good care of her!
Read More...
I cannot thank Janese & Jim enough for taking such good, loving care of our little guy. The only bad part about taking vacation is worrying about our fur baby, Leroy. I was at ease and know that he was given just as much love and attention as we give him, maybe even more, which is a ridiculous amount! I am so thankful that I could relax and enjoy my vacation and everyday got the cutest and funniest pictures to show me how much fun he was having. There is no one else I would trust more and we will definitely be back.

Another great stay for Chloe with Janese and Jim. Their house has become her 'home away from home' and they care for her like on of their own.
Baxter spent the holidays with Janese & Jim. This is the longest time we have left him. He always has so much fun with them and comes home exhausted with all kinds of treats. We really appreciate the pictures. Janese & Jim are the only ones we leave Baxter with.

Both of our dogs were with Janese & Jim for 9 days - which is the longest we have been away from them. It was such a comfort to us to know that they were getting excellent care. They always have such a wonderful time playing with the other dogs, and it has been so beneficial to their social development & behavior. The pictures that we receive are fantastic & are proof that they are really enjoying their stay. I guarantee that you will not find a better place for your dog to stay - Janese & Jim are the best!

Sky was so excited to see Janese and her furry friends! The pictures Janese sends during the day are awesome. I can always tell Sky is having a great time.
Janese continues to be our #1 go-to anytime we need a place for Wrigley to stay while we travel. As always, he was spoiled like he was one of her own. Thank you!
Thanks Janese and Jim for taking care of Buddy and Harley over the holidays! They enjoyed their stay as usual, and loved the treats you sent them home with!
Sky loves going to Janeses! All I have to do is say Janese and play and Sky is literally running to the gargage door! From the pictures Janese sends during Sky's stay and you can tell she is having a blast!
The pups had a wonderful week with Janese and Jim! Thank you for taking care of them and for all of the pictures!
Kobie loves going to Janese and Jim's! When he came home he was exhausted from playing with the other dogs. I never worry about Kobie while he is there. I know he is well taken care of!!
Gracie again had a great time on her vacation with Janese and Jim. She is going there for vacation even though we are not, because she has such fun there! Thanks again for a great experience.
This was our first time leaving Gertie with someone other than family, and we were really happy with how well Janese & Jim treated Gertie. She seemed to get along with the other dogs (& cats), and Janese was so sweet to send pics while we were away. She & Jim are true animal lovers. Not only did they take great care of her, they also showed her the love and affection we would if we were there. Already have Janese booked for a full week coming up!
Read More...
Janese is a fabulous host. Roxie Stayed for 13 days and we received pictures every day that showed what a great vacation she was having. It was so reassuring that we didn't need to worry about the well-being of our fur baby while we were dealing with other stresses. We have stayed with Janese four times now and would not hesitate to call on her again. Roxie had such a great time that we are considering sending her for day care once in a while. We just love Janese and Jim and are so thankful we found them. I just cannot recommend them enough!!!
Read More...
Teddy had so much fun. He loves going to Janese's to play with all his pals. We set up play dates for once a week, so that Teddy can get some socialization with other dogs while I work.
Another great visit!!
Sky gets so excited when she knows she's going to Janeses. It is so sweet to see Janese with the other dogs that come there. You can certainly tell they love her and she loves them.
Once again Janese and Jim took great care of Otis and he had a great time! She's always there when I need someone to take care of him when I go out of town!
Janese was fantastic! So kind and caring for our dog. She provided regular photos of Toby playing and resting every day - easier to leave the pup behind when we know what he's up to! We will absolutely use Janese again.
I am so happy I found Janese and Jim. I can leave Kobie with them and not worry about him. I know he is well taken care of!!
Lucy had an excellent Thanksgiving hanging out with Janese and Jim. It is always nice to be able to go out of town and not worry about how Lucy is. Janese is great about sending photos of her playing with the other dogs everyday and keeping us posted on how she is doing.
Read More...
Sky had such a good time Wednesday. She gets so excited when I say you're going to Janese's to play! Bless Janese for her caring and patience, because Sky is a handful!
It was so great to know that Ginger was in good hands while we were gone for the holiday. She has gotten to the point that when we say "Let's go see Janese" she gets super excited. She never even looks back when I drop her off anymore. Janese and Jim pour their hearts into their business and these pups. Janese was so sweet, she made Ginger a stocking and homemade muffins to take home:) Who does that?? Thank you Janese and Jim for loving on Ginger while we were gone. She misses her friends!
Read More...
Trixie very much enjoyed her Thanksgiving with Janese and all her dog friends. She has become very at ease there and races out of the car as soon as we arrive. In all the pictures, she is active with many other dogs. She comes home happy and ready for a rest after all the playtime. Thanks, Janese!
Read More...
Otis loves Janese and Jim! We can't thank them enough for their care for Otis!
Janese has been absolutely great. Sky and I feel so fortunate to have found her. You can tell she truly cares for each and every dog like they are her own. Sky loves to go there and Janese emails pictures during the day of the dogs at play and I can always tell Sky is having a ball. She comes home so tired, it makes for a peaceful evening!! I can not say enough good things about Janese.
Read More...
Baxter had a great time as always with Janese & Jim. It is nice to be able to leave him while we travel knowing he is in good hands!! We got lots of pictures! My kids love seeing Baxter playing with his friends
Both of our just dogs spent 5 days at their favorite vacation spot -- at Janese & Jim's home! Due to the holiday there were a lot of boarders, but Laila and Kenji still received plenty of individual attention and lots of love. Janese & Jim are very patient and have been so helpful in helping us correct some problem behaviors. This was a long time for us to be away from our babies, but we received wonderful pictures everyday that showed us what a wonderful time they were having. Thanks Janese & Jim!
Read More...
Janese has been watching Chloe since she was 6 months old. Chloe always has a great time playing with old and new dog friends and being loved on by Janese and Jim. Not having to worry about her while we are gone means a lot!
Great as always! Bowie has such a great time.
Thanks Janese for the recent weekend stays for Buddy and Harley! As usual, they enjoyed their time playing with all of their friends, and we know that they're always well taken care of while in your care. Thanks again!
Everytime Palmer stays with Janese I know he's going to be loved, well taken care of and spoiled! Palmer is extremely imprinted on me and he's not happy when I leave him, but before I even get home I get a photo of him settling in. I love getting the photo updates. We'll be back!
Read More...
Another great visit! Thanks Janese and Jim.
Janese and her husband took great care of our little guy and we have already booked her care again. Safety and comfort are my top priority and Janese fit the bill. Thank you Janese! Leroy looks forward to his next stay.
Ginger loves playing at Janese's! She always gets tons of exercise and attention. It is great knowing that she is well cared for :)
This was a short overnight, but always a welcome relief for our dog to stay with Janese. We know he is well taken care of.
As always with Janese our dog Teddy has a marvelous time! He is well loved and comes home exhausted from playing with his buddies! I never worry when I leave him in Janese's capable hands!
Thank you Janese and Jim for taking care of Maebe and Ramsay! I appreciate you working with our puppy and sensitive dog! Janese and Jim are very organized and flexible and really love the dogs they look after.
Bentley loved his stay with Janese and Jim once again. He always feels right at home there and they smother him with love!
As always, Ranger had fun staying with you and his furry friends! He's always happy to be there! And the pictures you send daily are great! Thanks for a wonderful experience, Janese & Jim!
My pups had a great time as usual with Janese and Jim! Thanks so much!
Thank you Janese and Jim for taking good care of Kobie. I know that when I drop Kobie off he is in good hands!
Our pup is going through some significant health care treatments, yet we had no second thoughts about leaving him with Janese and Jim for a week. When we picked him up, he was in better shape than when we dropped him off. They are magical with bartlet. We can't enough good things.
Read More...
Janese and Jim are wonderful dog sitters! I never worry about Kobie when he is with them. He is definitely well taken care of.
Stanley and Winnie had another great time with Janese and Jim! They came home happy and exhausted from playing! I'm sure they are already looking forward to going back again! Thanks Janese and Jim!
Love that we have found such a loving home for Ranger to stay when we are away! Thank you Janese and Jim for taking such good care of our furry family memeber!
Awesome day care visit for Bowie.
Bentley again had a great time with Janese and Jim! He loves spending time with them and all the other dogs!
Trixie had another great stay with Janese. Thanks for taking her on short notice. It is great to see how excited Trixie is when she realizes she is going to Janese's house. It makes leaving her a painless experience for everyone. Thanks!
Teddy loves going to Janese's house. He loves playing with the other dogs and he gets lots of loving from Janese and her husband. In fact if he has his leash on and he gets next to a car he thinks he is going to see her and gets all excited.
Thanks Janese for squeezing Harley in on such short notice! Harley had a grand time with his usual playmates and new ones too. Both Harley and Buddy are looking forward to their upcoming weekend stay!
Janese and Jim take such good care of our dog, Gordon, every time he stays with them. He always runs up to Janese when we drop him off and gives them kisses when we leave. We are so happy that he's happy there!
I could not be happier with my first experience with Janese and Jim. Kobie had a great time and the pictures that Janese sent reassured me that he was in great hands. I already have another date booked. They are the best!!!
Both of our dogs had a mini-vacation with Janese & Jim. While Kenji has been a frequent visitor, our 6-year old boxer Laila has not been there for quite a while. She immediately fit right in & formed a special bond with Jim. Janese does a fantastic job of making sure that all the dogs in her care get lots of individual attention plus playtime with the other dogs. I am jealous of how organized Janese is; her ability to handle dogs of all different sizes and with a wide range of needs is truly amazing! Laila & Kenji can't wait to return. Thanks Janese & Jim.
Read More...
Knowing Gracie was in such a loving and caring environment allowed me to relax and enjoy my vacation. Based on the pictures and her behavior when I picked her up, she was having a great vacation too! Thank-you again for all the care taken to make the experience great for both of us.

This is the second time Palmer has stayed with Janese. Palmer does not like leaving me. When I dropped him off he didn't want to go. In less than 15 minutes I had a message from Janese that Palmer had settled in -- pictures followed shortly! Janese and Jim take good care of Palmer. I love that he's in a loving home!
Read More...
As always, Ranger loved his stay with Janese and Jim! He comes home a tired, but very happy pup! Thanks for taking such good care of Ranger when we have to be away. It makes needing to leave him easier, knowing he is well taken care of and loved!
Its a great feeling to know my dogs where truly tooken care of when me and my wife went on vacation for 10 days. I was updated with some great pictures throughout my vacation. When my vacation was over and I went to pickup my dogs she told me a lot of greats things about my dogs stay there. Also it was like they became part of there family it was amazing. I'd refer here to anyone and everyone.

Baxter loves to stay with Janese & Jim. He comes home exhausted from playing with his fury friends all weekend. We get to enjoy our trips knowing we are leaving him in good hands. We will use them again!
Kenji had not been to Janese & Jim's for awhile so he was overjoyed to see both of them! I know that he especially missed all the playtime with the other dogs and all the individual time he gets from Janese & Jim. As usual, Kenji was very tired when he got back home and slept like a baby throughout the next day. You will not find a better place to leave your dog!
Read More...
Janese was fantastic. Teddy had a great time and she sent pictures to my email for us to keep track of how he was doing. Teddy played with the other dogs and they all got along. He was so tired when he came home that he curled into me and napped!
We will be using her again shortly and will even think of doing doggy daycare when I have to work overtime!
Read More...
Clark had a wonderful time with Janese and Jim! I really appreciated the daily photos! We will definitely take Clark back for future visits with his new friends.
Once again, our experience was outstanding. Thank-you so much for the updates and great pictures of Gracie. It was obvious she was having a fantastic time relaxing, playing and socializing with everyone. Finally I can take a guilt-free vacation knowing my dog is loved and cared for by Janese and Jim.

Bentley loved his stay with Janese and Jim once again! He feels so loved and at home there, which is such a relief to me when I leave him! Bentley slept the whole day after we picked him up! He was exhausted from all the love and play time he was given! We will definitely be seeing Janese and Jim again!
Read More...
Once again, Janese...Ranger loved his stay with you and the pictures you sent were so great! Thank you!
Chloe had a great visit as usual! She is excited each and every time I drop her off with Janese and Jim. She gets all her boundless energy out by the time I pick her up so that she is calm and tired when I bring her home. This is the best daycare situation for Chloe that I could have ever dreamed of! Thanks, Janese and Jim!
Read More...
Thanks Janese and Jim, for a nice weekend stay for Harley and Buddy! As usual, they had a blast with their playmates, and they came home thoroughly exhausted! They're looking forward to their next stay in October! Thanks again!
Janese is the best! Totally reliable and trustworthy. Ginger always loves her time there and comes back totally exhausted-which we love b/c we know she is getting lots of exercise. So glad we found this dog sitting service and Janese:)
I could not be happier with the first experience with Janese and Jim and Dog Vacay. In fact I have already booked several other DogVacay's for Gracie. Gracie was calm, comfortable and stress free. She was having so much fun that when I went to pick her up, she did not even notice I was there, as she was having too much fun! Thank-you both for making our experience such a fun and positive one.
Read More...
Again, a fantastic stay for our pup. Janese and Jim do just a fantastic job in caring for our dog. 2 weeks he's in great shape. Other than missing the two of them:)
Chloe could not wait to get out of the car and into Janese's arms and then to the backyard so that she could be reunited with all her furry friends. She hardly stopped from 9 am until 6 pm, except to eat. She loves being at Janese and Jim's house. And I totally enjoy my day knowing she is in great hands. Janese and Jim are the best!
Read More...
As always, Ranger had a wonderful time with Janese and his pals there! The daily pictures and updates make it so much easier to leave our furry family member. Thanks for all the attention you give your extended family, Janese and Jim!
Buddy and Harley enjoyed 2 short visits with Jim and Janese over the past week. As always, they had a great time reuniting with familiar faces, and some new ones too! Both came home completely pooped out, but happy from their short vacations. And as usual, Janese sent them home with treats and a new toy! They are looking forward to their next weekend stay in a couple of weeks!
Read More...
Janese was kind enough to squeeze us in with only a few weeks notice. She was also able to accommodate our needing to extend our stay without issue. Our three dogs love both Janese & her husband Jim!! Would definitely recommend them!
Trixie had a wonderful 9 day vacation with Janese. Trixie is always excited when she sees that we are at Janese's house. We are happy that we do not have to worry about her while we are out of town. We highly recommend Janese for other dogs who like a lot of interaction with other dogs and attention from people.
Read More...
We found Janese and Jim earlier this year after our previous kennel left us high and dry at the last minute. Since then our dog has stayed with them three times and he loves it! Janese sends daily photos of him hanging out and playing with the other dog and she strives to make sure her visitors are made to feel at home.

We are very happy we found them!
Read More...
We are so happy we found Janese! She is very professional and our pups had a great time staying with her! We of course missed the pups like crazy but received pictures from Janese every day while on vacation. Seeing pics made us so happy to know our furbabies were in good hands and making lots of new friends, both canine and human! Now that the pups are home they are exhausted from nonstop play time! Bonus - our spoiled dogs sleep in our bed with us, and got to do the same with Janese. Rest assured, crates are available if that is where your pup prefers to sleep!
Read More...
As always Gordon had a great time with Janese and Jim. We can tell not only from the photos but also all of the kisses he gives when he leaves them. We appreciate that Gordon has the chance to play with other dogs while he's on vacation. We would never bring him anywhere else.
Read More...
Chloe always has a great stay with Janese and Jim. Being gone for several days would be so hard if we didn't know that she was so well loved and cared for while we were gone. Seeing the pictures of her playing, resting, and cuddling each day is so reassuring. We know that even if something unexpected happens, Janese and Jim will take it in stride. They are truly 'dog people' who love all the dogs they care for.
Read More...
We were very happy with Janese and feel like she cared for our dog like only we could. Cooper had such a great time. We especially loved the pictures that were sent to us daily. We would definitely use Janese again! Thank you!!
Awesome as always!!
My husband and I left our two small dogs with Janese for 7 days and we couldn't have been happier with everything. Janese went above and beyond our expectations from the very first meeting with her. She genuinely cares about the dogs and their owners. While we were gone, Janese sent us picture updates of our babies which put our minds at ease since we have never left them with anyone besides family. I told Janese that the next time we go on vacation, she is the person who I am going to contact. Janese and her husband are so kind and sweet and our dogs loved being there. When they came home, they were exhausted and just wanted to sleep. This never happens with our younger dog because she is so full of energy. Thank you so much Janese for everything, my husband and I are so grateful we found you!!
Read More...
Janese and Jim were great as always!
Bartlet's experience was outstanding as always. He was in great care. And when we brought him home after being with Janese for 2 weeks, he was completely happy, normal. They love dogs and have a great balance between giving them all the attention they need while also ensuring the dogs all get along just great. We will continue to use Janese and Jim, no question!
Read More...
Janese and Jim were kind enough to make room for Otis to stay again while we went out of town. Otis is very happy with them and we always look forward to giving him that social time with Janese and Jim. We continue to use them anytime we have to be away and have referred many friends.
Read More...
As always, Chloe's last stay with Janese and Jim was great. It is such a relief to know that she is well cared for and loved while we are on vacation!
This is the 2nd time I have left my dogs with Janese and Jim. My 4 dogs had a great time. It is very reassuring to know I have a safe place to leave my dogs when I travel. Janese and Jim care for my dogs as if they were their own. Janese sent many picture of my dogs throughout their stay. I could tell from the pics my 4 dogs were relaxed and happy. It looks like my 2 small dogs spent the day cuddled on Jim's lap.

Thank you to Janese and Jim!

Another great visit for chloe with Janese and Jim and all her furry friends. Janese is so helpful and caring when it comes to helping Chloe have good behavior. And she and Jim are so patient. It is clear how much they care about the dogs that they take care of. They are so dedicated, I can't imagine anyone else taking care of my Chloe!
Read More...
As always, Janese loved Wrigley like he was one of her own. Thank you for the daily pictures and updates - you're the best!!!
Bentley once again had a great time with Janese and Jim! He loved all the attention and playing with all the different dogs! Janese and Jim kept me updated with lots of pictures of Bentley's stay so I knew he was having fun. He will definitely be staying with them again!
Read More...
I get peace of mind and my dog has a great time.
Our dog Kenji has stayed with Janese & Jim over 15 times and every visit has been wonderful. Every dog in their care is given plenty of individual attention plus lots of supervised playtime with the other dogs. Kenji is so happy when I pull in their driveway and sleeps like a baby after his visits. Thanks for another fantastic time.
Read More...
Always a great visit for Bowie. He has such a blast playing with Janese, Jim and all the other dogs!
Janese and Jim are great! Our dogs had lots of play time with other dogs and lots of attention from janese andJim. Thanks
Thank you, Janese and Jim, again for a wonderful dog vacation for Chloe. She loved all her friends that she was able to play with them from morning till night. I can tell that she misses all of you. Janese and Jim are such kind and loving people to all those that visit, dogs as well as their owners. I love sitting and chatting with them. And all the pictures they send are precious. It must take so much of their time to organize and send the photos. They are so dedicated to their pet watching business! They are the best!!!!!

Another great vacation for Baxter with Jim & Janese. We never worry about him while he is there because they take such good care of him.
Bodie had a wonderful time during his stay with Janese and Jim...so much so, he's going back for two weeks! The pictures Janese sent during his first stay were great...helped set this nervous "mom's" mind at ease. Bodie has taken every opportunity to jump in the car since his stay; I think he's eager to go back! Thanks for taking such wonderful care of our Bodie!
Read More...
Our 1 1/2 year-old Shiba, Kenji, had another wonderful weekend with Janese & Jim! I can tell that he had fun because he has been sleeping ever since we got home. He loves playing with the other dogs and enjoys all the toys there are to choose from. Kenji is in his shedding phase and Janese was so helpful by brushing him several times each day. Despite how busy Janese may be at pick-up time, she always takes the time to tell me about Kenji's visit & offer me valuable tips about his care. I learned that Kenji is very afraid of fireworks -- thank you Jim for cuddling with him during all the noise for July 4th!
Read More...
Always a great experience for me and my dog!
Again, Janese and Jim are perfect for this role. Our dog, Bartlet was there 2 1/2 weeks and he's home and in great shape. And we are heading back to them with him in another two weeks. That's proof in the pudding.
I HIGHLY recommend Janese and Jim. Our pup has now had three visits in a short period of time and everyone of them has been stellar. They really love dogs and are set up well to give our dog a great stay. Two thumbs up!
We are in awe of Janese (& Jim)! They are amazing! We got daily pictures and updates. We couldn't have been happier with Ranger's stay there. It's so hard to leave your pet, but knowing he was well loved and taken care of just like he was in his own home makes it easier. We will definitely be using Janese again! Thank You!!

Another great dog vacay for Sully--his third one! In fact, when we turned on their street, he stood up to look out the window and wag his tail! He remembered his home away from home! : )

We have since added a new dog to our family, Roxie, and she had a wonderful time as well. Janese and Jim sent plenty of pictures to demonstrate what a great time our dogs were having while we were gone for five nights.

I know that we never have to worry about the care of our dogs as long as they're in Janese's and Jim's care. We will continue to use them whenever we go out of town.

It is extremely obvious that they love dogs, and these dogs are just like part of their family. Great people, inside and out!

Janese and Jim did a great job with the dogs as always! They're great with my hyperactive chihuahua and took good care of my older dog. They always send lots of pictures and the dogs are always tired when they get home from all of their "doggy vacation." :-)

janese and Jim are awesome. My dog has a great time every time. They are flexible with my work schedule and I just can't say enough about how great they are.
I am so grateful for Janese and Jim for their special way with Chloe. They love her so much and are fabulous at teaching her to be a well-behaved dog. I recommend sending your dog to them. they really care about each and every dog they have in their home.

We had a death in the family and had to unexpectedly go out of town. Janese was able to take Ender on short notice and it was a huge relief. We loved all the pictures she sent and Ender had a great time and came home exhausted from all the playing with his friends. Thank you again Janese and Jim. We hope to see you again.

Thank you Janese and Jim for taking such great care of Harley and Buddy while we were away on vacation! As usual, they had a wonderful time during their stay. And thank you for taking Harley to the vet to check on his hind leg, which turned out to be a sprain...it was good that he was back to his usual self within a few days. Thanks again for everything!

I was very concerned about leaving my 75lb Velcro dog, Reggie. After the meet and greet, I felt he was in the right place and would receive great care. You can tell right away how much Janese and Jim love all the dogs. I was made more comfortable by the e-mails and photos I received every day. My dog, Reggie had a great time and he will be returning (if Janese and Jim will have him).

Awesome as always!
The absolutely best place to leave your dog is with Janese & Jim! Yes they will be happy to see you when you pick them up, but they will also be very tired from all the playtime they had & anxious to tell you about all the wonderful dog friends they made. Janese is very in-tune with the different personalities of every dog in her care, and makes sure that your dog will spend his time with dogs that he'll get along with the best. The fantastic pictures you will receive are proof that your dog is receiving excellent care. Thanks for another great dog vacation Janese & Jim -- Kenji sends you lots of kisses!

What can I say, Romeo has been with Janese many, many times and we absolutely love her and Jim...it's his second home. When we pulled up and she came out, to my surprise he practically leaped out of the car window into her arms..that was a first for me!! I love the way he that he gets to interact not only with small dogs, but also medium and large dogs all that are carefully handpicked with the same temperament. It's very important to me that Romeo knows how to socialized with dogs of all breeds and sizes and there he gets that opportunity with loving care...will we be back..of course!! Again, and again..........

Fantastic! Janese and Jim were wonderful with Sandy. We loved the daily pictures. It was great knowing she was staying at a place where she would be loved.
Having Chloe in dog daycare with Janese and Jim once per week is going to be fabulous for her. She gets to play to her heart's content and Janese is working on making her a very sociable animal who will be comfortable with all types of dogs. Janese is so knowledgeable and experience. I completely trust her. I am so thankful I found her!

Janese and Jim were great with Charlie, as always. They always send great pictures of the dogs having fun together. They were also understanding when I had to modify my reservation because one of my dogs is ill. As always I would highly recommend them.

Kenji had another fantastic time with Janese & Jim. He just loves all the playtime with the other dogs. Kenji has so much energy I thought nothing could tire him out, but he sleeps like a baby after all the exercise he gets! The individual attention that Janese & Jim give to all the dogs in their care is amazing. This is such a wonderful place to board your dog. Thanks J&J!

Bowie had another great visit with Janese and Jim. He is such a happy dog and has such a great time when he stays with them.
I was nervous leaving Baxter for the first time while we went out of town. Janese & Jim made me & Baxter feel comfortable the first time we met them. We enjoyed the pictures everyday seeing Baxter making new friends and relaxing with Jim. We will definitely use them again.

Janese is a fantastic per person with her hubby, Jim. We did a trial overnight and our dog didn't want to come home! Their home is perfectly set up for dogs and they are so organized to offer the best possible love and care. Dog sitters should LOVE dogs and they do. We immediately booked a week long stay right after the trial and couldn't be happier with their service. I would give 6 stars if we could.

Janese and Jim are amazing. Our dog is elderly and takes 5 different medications through out the day. Janese and Jim provided exceptional care for our dog. They truly care about the well being, health and happiness of each dog in their care. Without a doubt our dog's next DogVacay will again be with Janese and Jim!! Thank you!!

Janese and Jim took wonderful care of our dog Terra. We received several pictures of her everyday as well as an update on how she was doing. They even took her for walks and played with her outside. Terra was happy and we'll taken care of during her stay. We will happy have Terra stay with them again when we need to.

Another awesome visit!!!
Our two fur babies came home from their
12-day stay at Janese & Jim's house and were totally happy and exhausted from playing with their doggy friends! Each day of the stay, Janese sent an email to us with lots of photos so we could see what the dogs were up to and she provided an update on how the dogs were doing. We could see from the photos that our dogs were having a great time! We are so glad that there are other dogs at Janese & Jim's house for our dogs to play with and socialize with when they are there.
We have booked several Dog Vacay stays for our two dogs with Janese & Jim and have always been very happy with the love and care they give them.
We highly recommend Janese & Jim to anyone looking for care for their canine fur baby!

When I dropped Chloe off, she was so excited I wondered who she likes best, Janese or me! (HeeHee) Seriously, Chloe loves to go to Janese's! She is never nervous. She plays from morning till night with the other dogs and collapses in bed at night. And pick-up is so wonderful. Janese and Jim are such wonderful, friendly, kind people who love to share how the visit went and just love to converse and get to know their customers better. They are such special people, whom I could not imagine not being in Chloe and my lives. They feel like family to me. I am so thankful for them!

Bowie stays once a week with Janese and Jim and this is his first time just doing daycare. He always has a great time, he really is comortable and has his routine there just as he does at home. He is very comfortable with Janese and Jim and so am I. Thankful that I found them!

Excellent as always!!
I have two big dogs (Black Lab Mix and German Shephard Mix). At first, I was nervous to leave my dogs at the sitter who I don't know because my relatives are the most who watch my dogs. For some reason, they cannot watch my dogs and need to find sitter. I researched all sitters and the reviews what people said about this person. Janese is the one my dogs enjoyed the most and wonderfully social with other dogs. Janese shows her loving with dogs. When I picked them up, my dogs were worn out from playing with other dogs all day. I look forward to have her watching my dogs again soon. Thank you, Janese!
Read More...
Again another great visit for Chloe with Janese! She leaps into her arms as soon as Janese comes out of the house to my car and gives her many kisses. Dogs don't cover up their feelings. Chloe definitely loves being with Janese! She is looking forward to being with her very soon again.

Our pup Ginger enjoyed her stay with Janese & Jim-we could tell because she came home so tired she went straight to her bed and didn't want anything to do with us! That is a sign of a good time!! We had been boarding Ginger at an animal hospital in the area and every time we would pick her up she would come home with kennel cough. After we picked Ginger up from her weekend with Janese-no coughing!! She was loved and well taken care of while there. We are so happy to have found Janese and look forward to having her watch Ginger for us soon.

Charlie and Jezzie had a great time as always!
Jack looks like he is happy & having fun, not stuck in a car and hotel like me! Thanks for loving him, Janese & Jim!
Janese and her husband were WONDERFUL with our dog Chai! They took her in and treated her like part of their family, and she had a great weekend with them. She had never been out of our home before, so I was a little nervous about it, but Janese put me totally at ease during our Meet & Greet. Chai absolutely loved them and the other dogs, and was so much better than I thought she would be - we almost thought she was having too much fun at their home from the pictures Janese sent! Overall I would recommend her and her husband to anyone - they are the best!

Just awesome to find a great service by such nice and caring people to look after my dog while I'm away or at work. He has a blast every visit and is wiped out when he comes home.
We feel extremely fortunate to have found Janese and Jim! They truly care about each dog in their care and understand the individual needs of all the dogs while giving personalized attention. This pup and owners are 100% satisfied and highly recommend to others!!!

Theres a reason we keep coming back to Janese and Jim. They take such great care of my dog and love him like their own. He has a blast every visit and is wiped out when he gets home.
We left Palmer with Janese for the first time as Palmer often travels with us. We received emails with lots of photos showing Palmer playing with his new friends and relaxing. When Palmer became ill his last day there, Janese promptly called to discuss what was happening and we developed a plan of action. The next morning Janese was at the vet's office before they opened. I was able to speak with the vet directly. Nothing major was wrong, he just had diarrhea. All of his vitals were good.He got some medicine and a bland diet and was doing better in 24 hours. It did take Palmer a few days of sleep to rest up from his days of playing with the other dogs! I like the fact they are fed on a schedule and have a rest time in the afternoon. Jim and Janese took care of Palmer like he was their own! I really appreciated the care she provided. She even sent Palmer home with some hamburger and rice and a few treats! I highly recommend Janese!!

Great experience, as always. Charlie and Jezzie had a wonderful time and came home happy and tired.
Hello Janese and Jim, once again I have to thank you from the bottom of my heart!! When I decided to take the family on vacation (minus our baby boy Romeo) I knew there was only one place that I could leave him that would also give me the peace of mind I wanted while I was away..and that was with you!! I know he totally enjoyed himself because when I picked him up he was in such a playful and jolly mood. Thank you for all that you do, and of course, see you soon!

What a fantastic time Kenji had during his recent stay with Janese & Jim. With the nice weather he had lots of playtime outdoors and loves to run & play with the other dogs. All that exercise is so good for him and he always sleeps very well after his visits. Kenji also enjoys his "cuddle time" and has a special loving relationship with Jim. We continue to be extremely pleased with the care Kenji gets from Janese & Jim - they are the best!

As always, Wrigley & Gus loved their stay and they are looking forward to coming back soon! Thanks so much for loving them as much as we do!
A few short hours before we were to drop our dog off for a week-long stay at the kennel we'd been using for years, we received a call from them that they were cancelling all reservations due to the canine flu that's been going around. We were flying out of state early the next morning and were suddenly desperate! We called some other places and animal friendly friends of ours but, with this being spring break week, all were full. We turned to DogVacay and took a chance on a complete stranger caring for our dog. We selected Janese due to her overwhelming reviews, abundance of photos of happy looking guests, and close proximity to our home. We couldn't be more pleased. We regularly received updates and photos of our dog hanging out and playing with other dogs and we soon felt completely at ease. Our old kennel has now completely lost our business and our dog has a new home away from home!

Not sure what else I can say about Janese and Jim, but they are awesome. Bowie always has a great time and I kno whe is in excellent care!
We are new to the area and have had a hard time finding someone that we could trust to take care of our high maintenance Pepper. With a sudden death in the family and other logistics, Janese was there for us on short notice. When I met with Janese, she listened to Pepper's history with other dogs, his medical condition and our concern with leaving him with other dogs. Janese was so patient and reassured me that my concerns were things she had addressed many times over the years of her caring for dogs. I could not believe my eyes when I received the pictures Janese sent of Pepper playing, eating and being loved on. He was like a different dog in her care. We are planning to send him to Janese for more socializing daycare dates in the near future. Thank you for everything!! I would recommend Janese to everyone needing someone special to take care of your four legged child.

Trixie enjoyed a long weekend stay with Janese in late March. She was thrilled to see Janese when we arrived and jumped up to give her a kiss. Janese was accommodating of our schedule and took excellent care of Trixie. We received lots of pictures and Trixie returned home happy and healthy. We would highly recommend Janese!

Chloe had another great stay with Janese and Jim. It is so nice to see all the pictures of her playing, relaxing and being loved while we are gone.
Thank you! Thank you Janese and Jim for taking such good care of Ender!! Ender had a great time on his doggy vacation. He came home so tired. He was well taken care of and got lots of love. Sorry I wasn't there for the pick up Janese but thank you for the bag of treats and toys for Ender. Ender and I hope to see you soon.

Kenji misses you! Our Shiba Inu absolutely loves the time he gets to spend with Janese & Jim and all the other dogs. Janese always takes a lot of pictures so we know that Kenji is having the time of his life. He gets plenty of exercise -- he was tired for 3 days after this stay! I continue to be totally amazed at how organized Janese is -- despite the number of dogs she has everything on a schedule and makes sure that each dog in her care gets lots of love & attention. Kenji & Jim have become best buddies and I know that Kenji can't wait for his next visit. Thanks Janese & Jim!

All I have to do is say "Lucy do you want to go in the car and see Janese?" She gets very excited to go see Janese and the other dogs. I know that she is well cared for and loved by Janese and Jim while we are away!
Thank you Janese and Jim for the wonderful care you gave Lexi on her weekend visit. This was our first time using you guys and we will definitely bring Lexi back the next time we have to go out of town. The pictures you sent helped me relax knowing she was having a great time with the other dogs.
Thanks again!

Bowie had another fantastic visit with Janese and Jim! He has such a great time. Thanks as always for taking such great care of him.
Hi Janese and Jim, I just wanted to thank you again for the awesome care that Romeo received!! I'm always so pleased to see how happy and worry free he is when I pick him up. I also want you to know that just because caretakers charge more it doesn't mean that they care more and a lot of time when they charge less, it's because you get what you pay for. But, with you, you are worth every dollar and I'm so glad that we have you caring for our family member!! See you again, soon....

Janese & Jim were very hospitable, dogs had a great time. Would use again.
My dog has weekly visits with Janese and Jim and always has such a good time. He is well cared for and is wiped out when he gets home. It's nice knowing he is having fun while I am at work. Thanks
After our initial Meet n Greet with Janese and Jim, there was not doubt that we had found the right vacation home for Caesar. Janese was so welcoming and took her time to let Caesar (and me) get acclimated to her home and the other dogs visiting that day. Caesar had his first "sleepover" last week and it was awesome to see all the pictures Janese sent during his stay. He was definitely enjoying his visit!!!! We feel so blessed to know that Caesar will have a great home, with loving caretakers, to spend time with while we are on vacation.

I really am glad that I found Janese and Jim. I have been bringing Bowie to them since he was 4 months old when I went on vacation and was looking for an alterantive to a kennel. He is now just over 2 years and he goes once a week. He really loves playing and socializing with all sorts of different doggy friends. He is so comfortable with Janese and Jim he practically jumps out of the car and runs to the house. I couldn't imagine him going anywhere else!!

Dixie and Rascal were treated as members of Janese and Jim's family. I could tell when I picked them up they had genuine affection for Janese. Janese has a real love for the dogs left in her care. I received a daily updates along with pictures. I could tell from the pictures they were contented and happy. I wouldn't hesitate to leave my dogs with them again.

Lucy had a great time again with Janese and Jim! She always gets excited when we turn down her street to drop her off for a stay.
Thank you Janese and Jim for loving our dogs so much. We never have to worry about them when we leave them with you. You always go above and beyond to make sure each of your dog guests receive lots of love and a good time in a safe environment.

With thanks and gratitude,

Sherry and Greg

It truly is a wonderful service that Janese and Jim provide. My dog feels right at home with them. Im so glad I found people that care about my dog and look after him, just as I would. I can't say enough about how much I appreciate watching my dog.
As always, Janese and Jim took wonderful care of our two fur babies during their last stay with them!
Janese and Jim were also very accommodating with our last minute request due to a family health issue, recently.
Macie and Gabbie get so excited the minute we drive into Janese and Jim's driveway! They love going to stay with Janese and Jim and enjoy playing with their doggie friends there! Our dogs always come home completely exhausted from all their fun!

To Janese & Jim: Thank you for being so wonderful to Kenji. He absolutely loves spending time with you and the other dogs. As his "parents" we are happy knowing that he is being very well cared for in our absence. The exercise he gets when he is at your house is so good for him and he certainly sleeps like a baby when he gets home! Knowing that our baby will be in such good hands gives us great peace of mind. I know Kenji is looking forward to his visit next month. A million thanks for all that you do - you two are the best!!

Dear Janese and Jim... thank you so much for loving our dogs so much. Bob and Zoey love going to your home. I understand why - they have other dogs to play with and you pamper them so much :)

We really appreciate everything you do for them. It makes having to leave them so much easier.

With thanks,

Sherry and Greg

Janese took care of our dog Otis again and as usual he loved it. Janese was able to help me out in short notice. Otis loves to play with the other dogs there and loves to snuggle Janese and Jim. We will continue to use Janese to take care of our dog when we go out of town!

It really is a great service that Janese and Jim provide. It's comforting knowing that while I am at work or on vacation, that my dog is well cared for and having a blast.
Ender had a great time with Janese and Jim. It is very apparent that they love what they do and take it very seriously. I was very nervous to leave my puppy but the great pictures they sent help put my mind at ease that he was having a good time and being well taken care of. Ender will definitely be staying with them again. Thank you!!!

Sadie enjoyed spending a week with Janese and Jim while we were away. They are such a sweet couple and it is obvious they have a genuine love for dogs. Our family enjoyed the frequent updates and pictures of Sadie.
Weekly visits are going great! It's wonderful for my dog to socialize with other dogs. He really loves going and being with Janese and Jim!
Awesome as always! It's like a second home he had such a great time.
This was Sadie's longest stay and probably the best. Although not really a "player", Sadie very much enjoys being with the other dogs, and sooooo loves the belly rubs lavished upon her by Janese and Jim. They are so accommodating and we can be entirely confident that Sadie is perfectly at home with them and that every situation can be handled. They even put us onto a different dog food that Sadie likes better than what we were previously giving her. Thank You, Janese and Jim!

My babies got to have a stay with Janese and Jim again! They had a wonderful time and got to play with all their friends. I really appreciate the way they give both my dogs so much attention and love. Both Janese and Jim are so good to them and have so much patience, especially when dealing with my little one who is a fussy eater. They also get supervised playtime and naptime and set mealtimes. I love the fact that the atmosphere is relaxed and laid-back but also orderly and well supervised. I'm so grateful to have a safe, loving, and comfortable place to leave my dogs when I'm away!

Trixie was very excited to arrive at Jim & Janese's for her weekend stay. She raced off to find her playmates and gave Janese plenty of kisses. She returned home on Sunday, happy and tired, as usual. We are happy that Trixie is so at home with Janese. It is one less worry for us, when trying to coordinate travel out of town.

Great visit as usual. It's like a second home for him. He absolutely loves it with Janese and Jim.
We appreciate Janese & Jim. They take such great care of our dog, Gordon. They treat him like a member of the family. We totally trust them to care for him. Gordon takes acid reflux medicine and they administer it with his food. We can tell he has fun because he comes home tired from playing with his dog friends, and we're glad he always has a fun time. We don't have other pets so it's an advantage of bringing him to Janese & Jim's!

Our dog Kenji had another wonderful time with Janese & Jim. He just loves being with the other dogs and all the exercise he gets is absolutely wonderful! Kenji has really bonded with Jim and loves to cuddle with him. Shiba Inu's aren't usually good cuddle-dogs so that is amazing! Although he doesn't like to leave he really loves the great dog treats he gets when we go home. Thanks Janese & Jim!

We are so thankful for Janese! She was so accommodating with fitting Chloe into her schedule. Chloe, as usual, had a blast playing with the other dogs. She adores Janese and Jim, giving them kisses galore. She plays all day long and then cuddles next to them and sleeps peacefully all night. She is all tuckered out now and sleeping away today. I am so glad we can take Chloe somewhere where she is not anxious about being left and gets unlimited love and playtime.

Bowie loves his visits and this time was no exception! Thanks Janese and Jim
Awesome as usual. It's like Bowies second home. He always has a great time. He is really comfortable in his weekly routine visits and gets so excited when I pull in the driveway.
Another great stay for Chloe with Janese and Jim. Knowing that they really care about her and give her genuine care and affection while we are gone makes us feel so good. She also gets to play with the other dogs and comes home tired which is a bonus when the weather is so cold and she has gotten a little bored at home.

Another great experience for Dexter with Janese and Jim! This is Dexter's third time staying there while we traveled and I can tell by the amazing pictures Janese sent how much fun he had every day he was there. What a relief it is to know that Dexter is so well cared for and loved when he is away from home. He'll be happy when it's time to visit his other family again soon!

This was my second time with Janese. She loves all the dogs like they are her own. Will definitely use again!
As per usual, I was extremely pleased with the love and care that Jim and Janese showed my two dogs during their extended stay. It's so nice to be able to go on vacation and know that my two 'girls' are in such good hands. The daily pictures are a real treat too...and several of them!

Chloe had another great stay with Janese and Jim. It is great to know that she is loved and cared for while we are gone and allows us to take trips with our kids without any guilt about leaving Chloe.

Our dog Kenji had a wonderful Christmas week with Janese & Jim. Even though they were busy due to the holiday, we still received plenty of great pictures of Kenji having lots of fun. They sure know how to show a dog a good time -- Kenji gets so excited when we pull into the driveway & he sees Janese. I feel very welcome when I come to pick up my dog -- Janese & Jim are so willing to spend the time to talk about my dog's stay and answer any questions. Thanks for giving Kenji such a wonderful holiday!

We continue to use Janese whenever we need to board our dog Otis. She takes great care of him and he seems happy while he is there!
Our dog, Diesel, is my husband's and my baby. He is such a huge part of our family that we would never go on family trips or vacations because we couldn't bare the thought of boarding him. We had never kenneled him and hated the though of him being in a 9 by 9 foot fenced in cage with only a couple mins/few hours of "play time," with no one to really love him or appreciate him.

Then several months ago, my husband surprised me with a trip to go back to California to visit my family. I was so happy until I thought about poor Diesel. It was then that my husband told me that he had found Janese on DogVacay and told me about her set up. It is an UNDERSTATEMENT to say that I was very hesitant. So, prior to leaving our baby boy with her, I asked Janese if she would mind if I went to her house to observe the dogs and ask her questions.

Within moments of being there, all my reservations disappeared. From the moment I walked in I could see the extreme love, dedication, and appreciation Janese and Jim have for animals. All of the dogs were happy, well taken care of, and demonstrated love towards Janese and Jim. I knew that Diesel would be well taken care of here.

Since then, we have now boarded Diesel with Janese and Jim multiple times. Diesel LOVES going there. As soon as we pull onto their street, Diesel gets so excited because he gets to have a fun vacation of his own.

And finally, my husband and I can enjoy our vacations! We don't have to worry about Diesel sleeping on a cold, hard floor...we know he is probably laying on the bed with Janese! Every morning Janese and Jim email us updates on Diesel along with multiple pictures showing us how much fun he is having.

There is not enough good things I can say about the love and care that Janese and Jim show towards the dogs that they host. I am so thankful that we found a couple that will take love and care for our Diesel like we would.

Lucy had another awesome stay with Janese. She is a very social dog, and loves playing with the other dogs! Another no worry stay. Janese does a great job sending photos too, so we always know what she has been up to.
Our two dogs Wilson and Sophie had another great stay with Janese and Jim. Janese updated us regularly with pictures. We like the fact that they have exposure to both people and other dogs while we are away. I used to worry about them while I was away but dont anymore. Thanks Janese and Jim.

Macie and Gabbie just returned home from another stay with Janese and Jim. These doggies are dog tired! They always have a great time when they are there. Janese takes great care of all the dogs and they love being there.
My babies had a stay with Janese and Jim again. Of course they came home happy and tired! I cannot say enough good things about this couple. They truly love all dogs. They treat my dogs as if they were their own. Which means lots of love, attention, playtime, and spoiling! I don't have to worry about their health, their routine, or anything else while gone. I know Janese has it all covered. She's very organized and thorough about everything. I love the fact that there's always other dogs for them to play with, they love and need the socialization and energy outlet. So two happy and tired from play dogs means a happy and relaxed me! Great couple, great environment, great dogs for your pups to play with!

Couldn't give my dog a better birthday gift than to spend it with Janese, Jim and all his doggy friends!! He had a great day! Thanks
As always Janese and Jim were wonderful! They were very accommodating to our busy schedule and were able to take Max last minute. Max absolutely LOVES it there and is always treated like a king! He gets to play all day with his doggy pals and always comes home good and tired from all the fun!

Even though we moved further away, we still make the trek to Janese and Jim because we know he will be well taken care of!

My weekends are always very busy and I tend to realize on the morning of, and at the last minute, that our Yorkie is going to spend a lot of time alone. Janese and Jim are so wonderful about taking him in. There he can play with his friends and receive in home loving care. Thank you both so much!!

We always look forward to the pictures Janese takes of the dogs and sends to us every day of their stay. We love getting to see what they are doing and the fun they're having! It gives us great peace of mind knowing our fur babies are happy and well cared for when they are with Janese and Jim!

Janese and Jim are amazing! Out two dogs LOVE to stay with auntie Janese and Uncle Jim. Knowing that our dogs are being well cared for and loved while we are away gives us peace of mind. Thank you Janese and Jim!!!
Janese is by far the nicest person I've had the pleasure of meeting. You can instantly tell how much love her and her husband have for their doggy friends. While we were away for the weekend, she sent us pictures daily as well as a daily report of how our dog were. I'm extremely pleased with our experience and will definitely be booking with Janese again. Thank you so much for giving our babies a home away from home!

Janese and Jim are always great with our two small dogs. They really treat them like family, keep us updated the entire time we're gone, and make sure they're taken care of. They always come home tired and happy. :-)
Janese and Jim were great! This was our second time leaving Sophie and Wilson with them and both dogs seemed very comfortable. Janese provided lots of pictures and the dogs seemed to be having a great time playing with both Jim and the other dogs.

Thanks Janese and Jim. Sophie and Wilson will be back in December!

Another great visit for my dog Chloe with Janese, Jim, and her pets and other guest dogs. I think she may have had even a better time than I had over the Thanksgiving holiday! And mine was awesome! I am very thankful this Thanksgiving season for having the best caregiver for my dog when I am away. I never worry for a second! She has plenty of love and fun. I am truly blessed to have found Janese through dogvacay!

Chloe had another great stay with Janese and Jim! They were genuinly happy and excited to see her again. We are always impressed with their concern for the comfort of the dogs they watch and seeing the pictures of Chloe having so much fun makes it easy to relax and not worry while we are gone.

Awesome as always! Bowie feels right at home with Janese and Jim.
Janese has shown great openness to special accommodations for Sadie. Sadie gets more comfortable in their home each time she stays there. Although they always have a lot of residents and lodgers, Sadie gets all of the attention and special treatment that she desires and needs. We just could not leave Sadie in a kennel again. This is the only way to go, and frees us up to do things we might not otherwise do, without guilt or hesitation.

ANother great stay with Janese and Jim! Bowie really enjoys his stay with them, and jumps out of the car to go see them. He is such a happy dog and being able to play with other dogs every week is such a treat to him. Thanks
We continue to have the best possible experiences with Janese & Jim! During this visit our dog Kenji was wearing a cone plus was taking some medication. This was no problem at all - Janese is so knowledgeable about dogs and can handle any situation. The pictures we get (and she takes millions of them!) are wonderful. Janese is very prompt is replying to any questions & requests. Our dog Laila has not been there in a while & I know she will be so excited to see Janese & Jim next month. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts to these fantastic hosts!

Janese, Jim and all her crew are amazing. They are such a great couple and they will take care of your furry baby like their own.. As soon as i was backing out from their driveway Luna passed out right away she was so tired that she didn't wake up till the next day.. you can tell she had a really great time!

Awesome as always!! Bowie has such a great time playing with the other dogs. He is wiped out when he gets home. I can't rave enough about how much his weekly visits benefit him. Janese and Jim provide such a great service, so glad I found them!!
We had a busy day and an event planned for the evening and didn't want our Yorky to sit at home alone all those hours...Well, judging from the pictures he enjoyed himself more than we did at our event!! I'm so happy with the service provided and can't say thank you enough!

We brought Sully to Janese and Jim for his second vacation, just a short one-nighter. As she did last time, Janese provided a couple updates while we were gone as well as many pictures. Sully was obviously having a great time, and he enjoyed being reunited with some old friends. Janese and Jim are so caring, and they sent us home with a couple of Sully's favorite treats. It is obvious that Jim and Janese treat their doggie guests as their own, and we don't have worry about our dog's care while we're gone. We will definitely use them again!

As always, very happy with the care and attention that Jim & Janese gave to my dogs. I so appreciate receiving the emailed pictures of my dogs, along with the other dogs in their care, during their stay. This gives me great comfort and joy in knowing that my dogs are doing so well and are so happy!

Janese and Jim were amazing hosts! Bentley felt comfortable as soon as we went there for the meet and greet. Bentley only stayed there one night and they sent about a dozen photos so I knew Bentley was having a great time and being loved while I was gone! I will definitely have Bentley stay with them again!

Brina, Maddy and Ella had a wonderful time with Janese, Jim and all their cat and dog friends! I'm sure that they were spoiled rotten!!
Another super wonderful stay with Janese & Jim for our dog! Kenji was so excited when we pulled in the driveway; he remembers how much fun he always has when he visits. His monthly "playdates" with other dogs have been so good for his socialization. Kenji is now very well behaved with strangers & other dogs. Thanks J & J! See you next month.

Gordon always has a great time at Janese & Jim's. It's so cute that he comes home worn out from playing. He is affectionate with Janese and Jim, and we can tell he loves them. He was having tummy issues (not sick/contagious but inflammation) and they watched him extra closely. It is so significant to us that we trust them to take good care of Gordon no matter what--and we have no doubt they do. What a comfort! Thanks to you both for another nice vacation for Gordon!

Once again Janese and Jim took great care of Max! He loves it there and we love knowing he will be well taken care of and thoroughly enjoy himself! Thanks Again Janese and Jim, Max already misses you!
Trixie had a great stay with Jim & Janese. She enjoyed all the attention, other dogs, and even enjoyed their cat. Trixie is very at home with Jim & Janese and always comes home tired and happy.
Bowie stayed another night and had such a good time (as he always does). Janese is flexible with my work schedule. It's such a great service that Janese and Jim provide, they truley love and care for my dog as their own. Bowie is a very energetic dog and when he comes home after a visit he is wiped out. Thanks Again Janese and Jim!!

Very happy with the love and care that my two small dogs got, while in the care of Janese & Jim. My young dog really hit it off with Jim, which is shocking because she seldom warms up to anyone. I really appreciated all of the pictures that Janese sent via email each day. I could see how happy my girls were at their home.

Bowie had yet another great visit with Janese and Jim. His weekly visits allow him to socialize with other dogs and I can't say how much this benefits him. Thanks!
Our dog Lucy had the opportunity to stay with Janese and her lovely group of dogs for a week. I was thrilled with how much play time and attention Lucy received. She is a very active Labrador who needs to play, and play she did! I am so happy that I now have someone close by for Lucy to stay with when we go on vacation and for occasional day care too. Couldn't be more happy!

We left both of our puppies (Walter & Gertie) with Janese and Jim and we couldn't be happier with our decision. They were so good to our dogs, and the pups loved them as well! Even though we missed them while we were on vacation we didn't worry about them at all. We knew they were in great hands. Janese and Jim make you feel right at home like you've known them forever, so I can only imagine that the dogs feel the same way. They sent us pictures every day with an update on how the dogs were doing. They were just wonderful!! We have already recommended them to our friends, and we will definitely be using their dog sitting services again in the near future. XO Hillary and Andrew

Awesome as usual. Always a great time for Bowie, he jumps right out of the car to greet Janese, and is eager to see them and the other dogs.
Another awesome experience with Janese and Jim. Sadie obviously truly enjoys her stays with them and her canine friends. We have every confidence that no matter what situation might arise during Sadie's time with them, it will be handled. Experience and caring definitely show in the way that they perform their service. Sadie was glad to see me when I picked her up, but she was obviously happy and comfortable with all of the belly rubs and pampering that she experiences during her time at their house. Thank You!

Janese and Jim were great! Spike had never stayed away from family before and I was concerned how he would handle being with other dogs. Janese and Jim made him feel right at home. It was great to get pictures and updates every day. I would definitely recommend them to everyone and Spike will be staying there again in December!

My two babies stayed with Janese and Jim again and had a fantastic time! I have such peace of mind when I'm out of town that they are well taken care of and loved. It's really nice that they have so much experience with all types of breeds and personalities. My two are so vastly different from one another but both enjoy themselves while staying there. Fozzy gets lots of playtime with other dogs which is what he loves and needs as he's very energetic. Mattie gets to be a couch potato and just lap up lots of petting and attention. Both are so well cared for and catered to that I couldn't ask for better! I also love the fact that even though it's a laid back and relaxed household Janese is very structured and on top of everything so I know I can relax while I'm away. I highly recommend them for both active and couch potato (like my Mattie) dogs!

Kuma and Killian loved their weekend stay with Janese and her husband. They were so accommodating with the later pick up change at the last moment. Kuma and Killian looked so happy in all the pictures we received. When they came home they slept right away. Had such a fun time. Made my first experience leaving my babies an easier one knowing they were in excellent hands. Will definitely be using them again in the future!!

Due to some work and travel commitments, Gordon was at Janese & Jim's last weekend as well as Wednesday of this week. I couldn't be happier with Janese and Jim. They are so kind and do a good job taking care of my dog. I appreciate that they love my dog, and all animals, they way they do.

Nice folks. Toto had an opportunity to play with the big dawgs and others his own size. He played hard and was all tuckered out when I got him home. Toto will be back...
Gordon has been to Janese's countless times now. He always has a wonderful time, which I can tell by his interactions with the other dogs as well as Janese and Jim. I never hesitate to make an appointment for Gordon stay with them. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I appreciate how much they love my dog!

We decided to have our 6-month old Shiba Inu puppy (Kenji) stay with Janese & Jim for a mini-vacation once a month. Kenji has turned into such a loving, happy, and well-behaved dog (unusual traits for a Shiba!) and we believe it is due to his frequent stays at "Loving Your Dog Daycare". The wonderful interaction he gets with other dogs & the training from Janese & Jim has been so helpful to his development. I can honestly tell you that this is not just a job for them -- it is their life & they truly treat the dogs in their care like family. You will not find a better place for your dogs!

We have been making weekly visits and Bowie just loves it. He jumps out of the car to greet Janese and is so eager to meet up with all his new doggy friends. I can't say enough about Jim and Janese and how well they care and look after Bowie. Thank you for another great stay.

We left our two dogs for their first stay with Janese and Jim. They were great hosts. They made to sure a lot of pictures to let us see how the dogs were doing along the way. We could see our girls were in good hands and very comfortable. The fenced yard was great and gave me peace of mind for one of my dogs in particular, who likes to run. We will definitely be using them again!

Wonderful wonderful wonderful!!
As always, Janese and Jim took fabulous care of Max, and loved him as if he were theirs! Max loves going to stay with them and we love bringing him! We know he will have fun, and be well taken care of.

Max always makes friends during his stay and we love receiving the pictures Janese sends of all his play time.

Thanks again for loving our little guy as much as we do!

Sweetheart had another great stay with Janese. She seemed to remember her and gave her lots of kisses when we dropped her off. She enjoys playing with all her new dog friends and came home happy and exhausted! Janese was very accomdating with our drop off and pick up needs based on our weekend plans. She truly cares about the dogs, but also our family. Thanks again for a great stay!

It gets better each time Sadie stays with Janese and Jim. Although Sadie was happy to see me when I picked her up from her visit, she was obviously stress-free and has adjusted well to their home and the other dogs, both resident and visiting. As I have said before, this is the only way to go in caring properly for Sadie when we need to be away.

Thank You!
Bill

Janese and Jim are awesome and we adore them!!
Awesome visit with Janese and Jim! Bowie has such a good time playing, he's completely wiped out when he gets home. Thanks for taking such great care of Bowie!
Janese and Jim are great. Wilson and Sophie did really well during their stay here. They usually dont eat well when away from us but Janese had no trouble gettng them to eat. She sent us pictures and updates and it was obvious the dogs were comfortable and having fun playing with the other dogs. This is probably the first time we went away and were not worried about their care. It meant a lot to us to be able to have them stay in someones home instead of a kennel as they both just want to be around people all the time. Having other dogs to play with was a bonus. We will definitely use Janese and Jim again!

Our dog Diesel is not just our pet, but an important part of our family. We always hated going out of town (and usually avoided it) because we hated the thought of leaving our baby.

Luckily, we found Janese. The moment I went to her house to see her facilities and see her interaction with the dogs she cared for, I knew this was the right place for our Diesel. Janese gives every single dog in her care the love, attention and affection that we want our Diesel to have. We have now left Diesel with Janese and Jim several times, and every time I pull up to her house to drop Diesel off, he gets so excited and greets Janese as if she was a part of OUR family.

Janese and Jim have made it so much easier to leave Diesel because we know Diesel will have fun and be well taken care of (not to mention tired from all the playing fetch). Our family also enjoys the daily pictures emailed to us of Diesel while we are gone, making it much easier to enjoy our vacation knowing that Diesel is enjoying his.

I can't say enough great things about Janese and Jim. Our family is just so happy that we found a couple who values our Diesel as much as we do!

This is the longest we have left Gordon with any one, and we are so glad that Janese & Jim took care of him. I love seeing Gordon run up to them & give them kisses, because then it's clear to me that he loves them and they love Gordon. I know he is being well-cared for, and I'm so appreciative to have found Janese & Jim. We already have our next trip booked!

It was another fabulous vacation for our two dogs! They get so excited when we pull into the driveway. It is obvious that they love Janese & Jim plus the other dogs. Janese always emails us lots of pictures. Our dogs love playing outside and really like all the different dog toys they have. Both dogs are so tired after they get back home -- the activity is wonderful for them....and we enjoy sleeping later in the morning! Thanks again Janese & Jim.

As always, Janese provided a safe and caring home for Gus & Wrigley when we were on vacation for a week. The dogs are already looking forward to their next extended stay in December.
Another awesome stay with Janese and Jim! Bowie jumps out of the car and can't wait to see them or his new furry friends.
Trixie spent a week with Janese & Jim. She has been there many times so we had no concerns. Unfortunately Trixie came down with diarhea during her visit. Janese & Jim dealt with her getting sick, called the doctor, let us know what was going on, and were prepared to bring her to the vet when she got better. Not only did they take good care of her, but at the vet's recommendation, they had prepared boiled hamburger and rice for us to take home with Trixie to make sure she didn't relapse. Above and beyond the call... Thanks, Jim & Janese!!

Thanks to jim and janese ,taking care of my baby frosty,we had a wonderful vaction,thanks for posting my baby photos daily,thanks to both of you.
Our dogs stayed with Janese and Jim for a lengthier stay than usual, and we never worried about their well being during our entire vacation. Our daily emails from Janese with pictures assured us that the dogs were having as great of a time as we were! With no upcoming vacations planned, we'll make sure to find an excuse to bring them back soon!

Janese and Jim were wonderful with our dog, Sweetheart, during her stay. They sent lots of photos and email updates throughout our vacation. She received lots of attention and playtime...from both the human and canine companions. Janese is very thoughtful about every detail during the visit and even sent Sweetheart home with a goodie bag full of treats!

Another awesome visit. The weekly visits are becoming a nice routine for Bowie. He definately looks forward to his visits with Janese and Jim.
Our two dogs had another wonderful time with Janese & Jim. They get so excited when we pull in the driveway! Janese is always very well prepared for their visit and it is obvious that she loves them as much as they love her. The pictures we get are fantastic and show that our dogs are getting lots of playtime outdoors which they love. We can't wait for our next vacation. Thanks Janese & Jim!

Once again Janese and Jim took great care of Max. He got to run around and play with lots of new friends. We love getting the pictures and seeing him have such a great time.

He came home nice and tired from his exciting stay. Thanks again Janese and Jim for taking such great care of Max during his stay, and loving him while we were away.

My babies spent a great week with Janese and Jim again! Both Mattie and Fozzy love going there and adore both of them. Mattie immediately runs up to Janese to give her kisses and Fozzy he can't wait to see what new doggie friends are inside to play with! It's so nice to truly feel that my dogs are loved and well cared for while I'm away. I know that Janese will oversee and supervise my dogs as if they are her own. There is such a nice element of comfort and love in their home that my babies just fit right in. Actually she makes certain all the dogs adjust really well by spoiling them with attention and love. I've even seen her rock nervous dogs in in her lap in her rocking chair like little babies till they calm right down! I couldn't ask for better sitters then the 2 of them. If you want someplace warm and loving and well supervised I highly recommend.
