About Janet

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a mature person in a quiet, safe, pet-friendly neighborhood with little through traffic. My cozy corner is 1/2 blk from 1600 acre Pennypack Park, a minute off US 1, and 7 min. off 95

I'm not working so, my routine is to take the dogs under my care for several long walks and sniffy tours on sidewalks, paved driveways and foot paths in the park throughout the day and early evening.

I do not have a dog of my own or children at home. My house is small so, your baby is usually in eye site. It's quiet, clean and peaceful. My home has a lot of light with full pane security doors and rear sliders that provide your pet with a view to the outdoors. Experience has shown me most dogs enjoy being able to see who is passing by particularly, if their walking their dog(s).

I'm not a young, strong guy so, my preference is to watch small to medium size (under 25 lbs.), well-behaved dogs who are house broken. I do not watch bull breeds or aggressive dogs. While your dog is here it will get hugs and love and be treated special (TLC). There will be plenty of positive reinforcement, belly tickles, and attention.

You should go to my Profile page and schedule a Meet-n-Greet to get acquainted before hand so when you have a need for a sitter you have the confidence of knowing where your pet will be staying. Your dog will be in capable hands and helped with slowly socializing with any other guest that may come while your little one is here with me. In the event that I am hosting another guest, for safety when another dog arrives and while I'm sleeping at night I may put your dog in a large crate in my living room with a night light on.

In the event you would like an early drop off time and a late pick up time just let me knew and we can adjust your rate accordingly so you won't have to hurry home and pay for daycare ($20) in lieu of the standard overnight fee.

Just a reminder that dog shots are to be up to date. In particular, during the spring and summer months your dogs flea and tick collars or preventative treatments should be followed as recommended. If their cycle falls during their stay, you should leave it with me, I'd be glad to apply. Additionally, I prefer your dog have a harness in lieu of just a collar they could slip out of when outside. Of coarse, you dog should have an ID tag on also.

I have a love bird which many of the dogs enjoy watching and am available to care for your birds too.

Warmest regards,
Janet T

This was the first time we used dogva cay and Janet and it was a success. Our dog Snuggles is about 15 months old but very shy and attached to her family. Janet'so home was perfect for Snuggles and Janet goes out of her way to make everyone feel welcomed. It allowed us to take a long day trip and not worry plus Janet sent us pictures of Snuggles. I would highly recommend Janet.
It was the first time we use this service and we are so happy it was Jane. We did a meet and greet first and, after meeting Janet and see how she really cares about the dogs she takes care off, we were very comfortable to leave our dog with her. During the time Luna was with Janet we received a lot of photo updates and we could tell she was having a great time. We will definitely book with Janet in the future again.
My girls Jasmine & Coco really enjoy staying with Janet. She takes very good care of them and they always get her with lots of tail-wagging and excitement. I appreciate her flexibility with scheduling too.
My dog Rosie had a wonderful time while she was on vacation with Janet.
From the meet and greet I knew Rosie would be well cared for by Janet.
Janet gave me quick updates and sent such adorable pictures. It gave me peace of mind knowing Rosie was in good hands.
I would definitely use Janet in the future.
Rosie and her family
Janet did everything she could to make our dog feel at ease in her home. Thanks!
Janet was great in sitting my pet. Her demeanor with her was instrumental in setting a good rapport with her, which isn't easy as she's a handful! Janet also sent pictures with a daily update, which was reassuring. Look forward to using her services again !!
Janet was terrific with our Bichon. She gave her long walks and lots of attention. She sent us frequent photos, too. It worked out really well for us and our dog Vanna.
Our dogs were well cared for and seemed very much at home with Janet. We had a great experience and hope to have them stay with her again. She was sensitive to their medication needs and diet as well.
Janet is a very sweet person and seems to really love dogs. Gypsy stayed with Janet for one night while we attended a wedding. She took good care of her but I only gave 4 stars because there was a slight incident involving Janet's pet bird. Gypsy has a very high prey drive and a lot of energy. (She's a jack russell!) Janet required a meet before she would accept our reservation. I thought this was a great idea because I was concerned about how she would react to the bird. Gypsy seemed to be very interested in the bird and not in a good way. We were concerned that this could present a problem but Janet told us that it was no big deal and that she would move the bird into a separate room if it became an issue. I knew it would be an issue, knowing my dog, and seeing her jump at the cage while Janet finally moved it during our visit but Janet seemed to think she could handle it so we did not worry. Turns out there was an incident and Gypsy knocked over the bird's cage. It concerns me that this was allowed to happen. I saw it coming in the first 5 minutes we were in her home. She said I was like a mother with her first child :-) Well... mothers usually know best. I am grateful neither the bird, nor Gypsy was hurt. I would definitely recommend Janet for a calmer dog, but not one with a high prey drive who would be too tempted by Bananas, the bird!
what a wonderful and sweet lady Janet is. she has so much love for dogs. she treated Jesse as if it was her own dog. we were gone out of the country for 2 full weeks and we were so comfortable knowing our dog was staying with her. she send us photo updates and handled Jesse's picky food habits so well. Jesse was so spoiled with all the walks she would take with Janet. she loved it.
thanks again Janet.
As usual Tess was very well looked after during our July Alaska vacation. I loved getting Janet's updates and pictures, especially since we were gone for an extended period of time. Since we were in several remote areas that did not have Wi-Fi, it was so nice to find those messages waiting when we did get to a town where I could connect to Wi-Fi. Tess always has a great time with Janet and I know she is getting the individual care and attention that I want for her. It's nice to know that Tess is so well card for and it gives me some peace of mind while I'm on vacation. Thanks Janet!
Always great!
Corona had a wonderful time with Janet yet again this weekend. Janet treats her like her own dog and leaves me with no worries while on vacation.
It was my yorkies first time w/Janet. Janet was very sweet and took a good care of him. Was updating with pictures and notes.
Janet is excellent. We leave on vacation knowing that our precious pet is in good hands. She is loving and caring with our pet and we really appreciate that.
Janet is great! Casey really enjoyed staying with her and she felt at home! Thank you so much!
Janet is fabulous! Turbo is always happy to stay with her, and we get fun pictures of Turbo's vacay.
Janet was wonderful with Cali. Loving, attentive and caring! I knew Cali was in good hands.
My precious little doggie was with Janet for the better part of a week, and my confidence was justified. Janet did a great job caring for Nooshi. Her fondness for our four-legged friends is obvious.
Janet is a wonderful dogsitter. She's been flexible with us about drop off and pick up times. Our dog is always happy to see Janet. The best thing for Turbo when she is with Janet is the frequent walks.
Janet is absolutely phenomenal and we are so lucky to have her!!!
Once again I was thrilled that Janet was able to watch Tess while I went on vacation. Janet posted several pictures of Tess and updated me on how she was doing. I could certainly tell that Tess was well taken care of and had a great time on her "doggie vacay." Thanks Janet for looking after Tess as if she were your own.
Janet took good care of our little one and we are pleased with the service she provided. We highly recommend her to anyone in need of someone who is caring and loving with pets.
Ms. Janet was awesome I love the atmosphere she provided Charlie my now 12wk old Chion. He loved her, I can tell they had the best of times while I was away. We originally did a meet and greet and from there I knew she was a keeper. I will be using her in the future for Charlie because he really liked being there. She took him for four walks a day so plenty of exercise and fun. When he got home he was out like a light. There was no change in behavior which is key. I recommend Ms. J to all who are looking
Janet is awesome babysitter for my Toby I checked in every other day and she sent pictures, emails I would definitely use her again Toby loved her too. My husband wasn't going to go until he met her and he felt very comfortable with leaving Toby his baby with her. She's the BEST!!!!!
Janet is a fantastic doggy sitter! She is kind, thoughtful and attentive and Bailey warmed to her instantly. I couldn't be happier and am totally comfortable leaving my fur baby in her capable hands. Xoxo
This was Tess' first stay with Janet. We had a meet and greet beforehand and I knew that I would be comfortable leaving Tess in Janet's care. Tess doesn't always get along with other dogs so Janet was a perfect fit since she only watches one dog at a time. When I picked Tess up she was happy to see me but I could tell that she was also happy staying with Janet and that she had been well taken care. I also loved the fact that Janet posted a few pictures and an update on how Tess was doing while I was away. I will definitely ask Janet to watch Tess again in the future.
Janet is a wonderful host. She was very easy-going about following our dog's routine. Our dog went back-and-forth between us and Janet when we picked her up so I know our dog felt comfortable in Janet's home.
Always wonderful.
Corona once again had a wonderful stay with Janet! She takes good care of her and sends many updates throughout our week long vacation. I know I don't have to worry leaving corona with her!
I was very happy with the service. Janet is so nice and genuinely loves animals. She even sent pictures of my dog to me while I was away.
Wonderful as always, Abby misses Bananas!
Abby always loves her time with Janet and Bananas.
Janet is absolutely wonderful! Corona had a great time while my husband and I were on vacation for a week. I knew she was in good hands and had no worries about leaving her with Janet. Highly recommended!
Janet was an excellent care giver to my Maggie. She is a very caring and understanding of each and every pet she has in her care. Mag seemed very content and happy when she was with Janet and Janet seems to know what each pet needs and does an excellent job. I would be happy to trust her again with my dog for any kind of a stay-cation! Thanks again Janet u rock!
My family went on vacation over the 4th of July weekend and had to leave the dog behind. But Janet was great about sending updates (with photos) on what Raya was up to. She was a little too nervous to eat, but I think Janet really tried her best to make her as comfortable as possible.
Wonderful! Loved the pictures and updates. Abby looks forward to her return vacation next week.
Janet helped my wife and I out in a pinch when we realized we didn't have anyone to watch our dog when going out of town for a wedding. She was more than responsive on handling a last minute booking. Mya loved staying at Janet's and would I'm sure love to go back (if she could say so herself)!
Ruby loved her stay
Janet was a great host. She watched over my dog Bentley and he was very happy to be at her place. I was able to call her anytime to check up on my dog. When we came back to pick up Bentley he seemed very tired. I guess Janet was really good at making sure he was active and not bored the whole weekend. I will definitely use her again when I am away.
Janet is an excellent host! I would recommend her to anyone looking for great pet care! She was very attentive to Diggie and communicated with me while I was away. You can see that she genuinely loves dogs and this gave me a sense of peace! It was a pleasure meeting and having her care for Diggie!
Snoopy had a wonderful time on his vacay with Janet! Janet spoiled him with plenty of walks during the day, lots of playtime and extra love! We knew he was having fun because Janet sent us pictures of him playing, having fun and even getting in a good afternoon nap which helped us relax and enjoy our vacation too. He can't wait for us to go on vacation again!
