About Jean and Alan

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Jean and I have been an avid dog lover and owner my entire life. I'm a soon to be retired Register nurse who currently works 2 days a week. My husband Alan and I work as a team to provide your dog with the best care possible. There is no place like home but some might say we come pretty close with 24 hour companionship of 2 adults, 2 walks daily, unlimited access to a fenced in backyard and wellness dog food provided upon request. Max's favorite! I have one sociable, friendly Husky named Max (very dog friendly). My husband Alan is a retired math and science teacher and we live in a quiet, residential neighborhood with a fenced back yard. There is always someone home. Max, Alan and I walk up at the Ashland or Hopkinton state park regularly (your dog could come on lease too!). See the photos of Max playing with his friends at the park. Depending on the energy level of your dog, I have lots of dog toys to use in a fenced in baseball field that allows them to run off lease or they may enjoy a cozy space in the house where your dog could curl up and look out the window. We will make sure your dog gets lots of attention, plenty of exercise, in a dog safe environment. My yard is fenced in although your dog will not be left unsupervised. Be assured your dog will be well cared for like a member of our family. Max has a guest bed waiting for a friend!

Even though it was a short stay but it was a great one for Han Solo. He really enjoyed playing with the resident dog "Max" and seemed to have fit right in
I could not be happier with Jean and Alan S. My dogs slept for the rest of the weekend they were so pooped from all the walks and running around. They sent multiple pictures every day which was wonderful! I felt at ease knowing my dogs were in a secure yard, and with experienced animal lovers! Would recommend in a heart beat and will for sure use them in the future.
Jean and Alan agreed to take our dog Ash on relatively short notice when I had to be away Friday through Sunday. There wasn't time for a meet and greet session. He is a 6 year old rescue dog, part Golden and part Schnauzer. It was a very good fit. They were kind enough to send me pictures and emails while I was away to assure me everything was ok. I was humbled when I got to their house on Sunday afternoon. As I tried to get Ash into the SUV, which is seldom a problem, he circled the car and then ran back up the walk to their front door. It took more than a little coaxing to get him into the SUV. I recommend Jean and Alan without reservation.
We absolutely loved working with Jean and Alan. They both have wonderful personalities and gave our 7 year old Samoyed loving care while she was with them. They sent us photos so we were able to see her and see how she was fitting in and getting along with their dog.
We couldn't be happier with our experience leaving our dog with Jean and Alan. They truly love taking care of dogs and make every effort to make their clients feel comfortable about their dogs stay. Pictures every day or two of the dogs walking, while not expected, made us laugh to think our dog was truly on vacation himself! We will definitely be happy to leave him with Jean and Alan again.
Jean and Alan were exactly what we were looking for our golden retriever while we were away. We needed to find a loving home where she would get walked and played with on a regular basis while we were on vacation. They welcomed her into their home as their own and provided us with almost daily updates, which the whole family appreciated. We will use them again when we need a pet sitter - they did a great job!
Jean and Alan were wonderful taking care of my dog. They had their hands full with my energetic dog. They are very diligent about caring for all the dog's needs. I highly recommend them to anyone needing responsible and trustworthy caregivers for their precious pets.
Jean and Alan are very nice people. Their dog Max is super sweet too. They took good care of my anxious golden retriever Mina. She gets very nervous in new places but seemed to be comfortable there. I would recommend Jean and Alan and I will definitely use them again in the future.
Jean & Alan were so comforting with our 12 year old pug Titan. He has only stayed with family members in the past and he is quite particular about his food. So we were nervous about how he would do in a new environment and with new people caring for him. The first night was tough, so Alan slept downstairs on the couch to make sure he was ok. The next day he ate and they walked Titan twice a day and cook him pasta ( Titan's favorite food).
They gave regular updates on Dog Vacay and sent photos. The updates and photos really helped us relax and feel ok leaving Titan with Jean & Alan. Hence we were able to have fun on our trip.
When we came to pick Titan up, we could tell he had been well cared for and he was comfortable at Jean & Alan's home.
We will definitely call on them again the next time we need to travel! They are great people and took such great care of Titan! They are definitely Titan approved , which is a the highest rating! :)
Alan and Jean are wonderful and were great to our dog. As first-time users we'd definitely do Vacay again with them. Very knowledgeable and caring dog lovers.
Alan and Jean are wonderful. They took excellent care of our two 12 year old westies. They sent great updates and pictures every day. Their dog Max is a wonderful boy and was a gracious host. They are both awesome.
We were vey happy with Jean & Alan. They provided pictures & updates through our vacation. Olive was part of the family for the week. It made our week away much more relaxing Peggy, Rick & Dominic Spada
Our 5 year old, very shy dog stayed for 2 weeks with Alan and Jean. She returned happy and well adjusted. Alan and Jean sent photos and updates, and I think our dog may have been happier at their house than ours! Thanks to Jean and Alan for making our vacation worry-free! I recommend them without reservation!
Jean and Alan took great care of my dog. I will have my dog stay with them again when I am back in a few weeks.
Jean and Alan were wonderful dog sitters. My dog can be quite timid, and she sometimes needs a few days to recover after she has stayed at another persons house. Well, she came home from Jean and Alan's house absolutely calm, happy, and it was clear that she had a wonderful time. Their fenced in backyard is perfect for dogs. I recommend Jean and Alan highly.
Alan and Jean are wonderful! Clearly dog lovers, they take such personal and loving care of our dog. They have great communication the entire time we are away so that we know our girl is being well cared for. Thanks!!
Jean and Alan seemed very attentive towards our guy, even though he is a bit difficult. He's busy all day and high-strung. But, Zipper came home none the worse for wear. Glad he could go on long walks at the park!
We always worry about Daisy as she is a timid and nervous little girl. With Jean and Alan she had such a good time that we are relieved of a huge emotional dilemma. Thanks to a wonderful host family our Daisy is having a good vacation along with us.
Jean and Alan were wonderful hosts. They took great care of our beloved Lab, treating her as if she were their own. They kept our family well informed of what she was doing all weekend, sending emails and pictures. They took her on multiple walks a day in lovely wooded/lake settings, and she had lots of play time with other dogs (not too many; just the right amount). It was a great weekend for her, which helped us enjoy ours! Alan and Jean were a pleasure to work with.
Jean and Alan were wonderfully warm hosts! They responded very quickly to my reservation request as well as to all other times I made contact during our trip. Our dog seemed to have found another family with these great people, and with Max, a very handsome friendly dog. Evidently, our dog got a lot of exercise during his stay. He was ready to sleep as soon as we got home (only after he ate the surprise treat that Jean and Alan had packed for him in his bag).
Thank you so much Jean and Alan!
