About Alecia & Jacob

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are young twenty-something individuals with a fervent love for anything with four legs (or three, or even two), and we've had our home open to pups since 2013. Alecia is a biologist and an ex want-to-be veterinarian who has taken dog behavior courses and training courses. Jacob is an honors history teacher at a local middle school who has also taken dog behavior and training courses. We have a fur baby of our own, who is tired of being an only child and just can't wait to have playmates around! We have an open layout home and a fully fenced backyard so your pup will be able to run all around both indoors and outdoors. :-)

We are two very active people who enjoy our fair share of runs, hikes, camping and fishing outings, so if your companion is the same, we are more than willing to work him or her out!

Thanks for looking and please message us if we look like a good home away from home for your pup!

Reggie had a blast. This host is very professional.
Wonderful experience for both puppy and owner!! Kaeli loved Alecia, Jake and Benson! She got plenty of playtime and attention. We got plenty of picture/video updates too. I would definitely recommend these guys if you need someone to care for your dog. Thanks so much guys!
I can't say enough nice things about this family! Alecia, Jacob and Benson were awesome!

This was our first time using dogvacay and we were really nervous about leaving our giant 4-month-old puppy with strangers. We knew immediately after meeting this family that they were a knowledgable and trustworthy choice and we knew that Eider would have a great time playing with Benson!

Alecia and Jacob were accommodating with their scheduling which we really appreciated. They were also very quick to respond to messages and emails and sent pictures and videos while we were away.

We will definitely look to them for pet sitting in the future!
Our dog Cerys had a great time with Alecia, Jacob and their dog Benson! I loved that Alecia sent me photos and texts a couple of times a day. Cerys looked happy and like she was having a great time! We will definitely book with them again and we highly recommend them! Thanks so much, Alecia, Jacob and Benson for your hospitality!
Once again Rocco had a great time with Alecia and Jacob! He was all tired out from lots of play with Benson. I would use them anytime I needed dog sitting and highly recommend them to anyone new to dog vacay!!
Can't say enough nice things about Alecia, from the very start I felt very comfortable leaving our Tucker with her. She was very understanding of the needs of our senior beagle. I could tell when we picked him up that he had a great stay at Alecia and Jacob's house. So glad I found them and plan to use them again!!
Alecia and Jacob were the best! I felt so comfortable leaving Rocco with them. They have a great, calm manner with dogs and they let my guy truly make himself at home! I loved the updates of pics and vids that allowed me to relax and enjoy my vacation. He loved their pup Benson, who is an adorable retriever. They were the perfect people to find for dog sitting, and they accommodated us last minute!
Alecia was very flexible for my unplanned trip. My girls had fun and enjoyed her fenced yard in the sunshine. Will definitely use her again.
Alecia and Jacob were great with our girls. You could tell they were real dog loving people from the first time we met them. We recieved a few very cute pictures and updates each day during our time away and each picture proved Lacie and Grace were having fun and being well taken care of!! It was the first time we have left the dogs with someone other then family, however I felt very comfortable leaving them with Alecia and Jacob, it was also very nice that they had their dog Benson whom the girls had a great time with. It was reassuring they had experience with the same size/ breed of dog. I would highly recommend them and will plan to use them again when we need someone to care for our girls! Thank you thank you!!!!!!!! :)
Alecia and Jacob were great! We have never gone away and left our dog feeling so comfortable about it. We were sent pictures of our dog and got reports on how things were going. We got texts with any questions and never had to worry about whether we had left her in a good place. We even neglected to take enough food and Alecia and Jacob took care of that. It was a great experience for our dog to be in a nice, warm home with a playmate instead of in a cold lonely kennel. I would recommend Alecia and Jacob to anyone. We can finally go away and not feel bad about leaving our dog. I'm not sure she even wanted to come back home! - Diane
Alecia and Jacob did a great job. We left Reggie with them over Thanksgiving (three nights). We received daily updates with pictures via text. Reggie was very well taken care of and had a great time with their dog Benson. We hope to use them again in the near future.
My name is Toby Sanchez the III and this is my 2nd visit with Miss Alecia, Mr. Jacob and Benson the Golden doodle. I was just a little 4 month old husky pup my 1st visit. This time I was a very grown up 9 month old husky. However, I had just as much fun this time as I did my 1st stay with them, if not better! Since it was summer time, Benson and I got to play in the big, fenced in back yard all day. We just run amuck! Miss Alecia sent momma pictures and videos throughout my stay, just like she did during my 1st visit. Just like last time, me and Benson played like crazy all day long, and then Miss Alecia tucked us into our crates at night. I was fed as per my normal schedule, felt safe and cared for, and ran and played with Benson until we couldn’t play anymore. No matter how silly we acted or how much we ran like crazy puppies, we were never yelled at or scolded. Mr. Jacob and Miss Alecia are very nice doggie sitters. The time went by so fast and I wasn’t ready to leave quite yet when daddy and momma came to pick me up. I hope I get to go back very soon. As I like to say, “Don’t put your furry babies in a big, cold, scary kennel, take them to Doggie Vacay!" They will be so grateful! Hugs and licks from Toby the Siberian Husky!
We had never left our two dogs with anyone before. My dachshund can be a bit of a handful, but Alecia and Jacob were amazing. They took great care of our dogs with no complaints. They even sent us daily pictures and updates. It allowed us to enjoy our son's Air Force basic training graduation without having to worry about Hanley and Olive. We knew they were in great hands and we felt completely comfortable leaving them with these two loving people.
Alecia & Jacob do so good with Peppermint when we are out of town. She always comes home well worn out and happy from playing. They do a great job taking care of our four legged kid!
Alecia and Jacob are superb. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to others. We just adopted our dog Dingo and he has a way too go. We had a Meet-n-Greet that verified our dogs would work well together. Our dog, Dingo, had a blast, while we were gone. And he came back very well indeed. Thank you so much!!!
Great experience! Highly recommended! Great piece of mind to know that Rex was in good hands while we're on vacation! THANK YOU!!!
My name is Toby Sanchez. I am a 6 month old Siberian Husky pup. Miss Alecia and Mr. Jacob doggie sat me when I was just a little 3 month old guy. It was my 1st time away from home and momma and daddy were very nervous. Well, they didn’t need to be! I had the time of my little life! They have a very nice, clean, safe home with a large fenced in yard. Their pup Benson, a goldendoodle, is so friendly and playful! He really helped me with what momma calls “socialization skills”. I only know we played like crazy! Miss Alecia sent momma pictures and videos throughout my entire stay. Ma said she felt like she was right there with me and could really enjoy her trip knowing that I was safe and happy. Well I did cry in my crate the whole 1st night, but Miss. Alecia and
Mr. Jacob were so patient and kind to me. By the 2nd night I was a big boy. I hope my ma and dad go on vacation again soon. I can’t wait to go back for a stay and show Benson how big I am now. If you live in or around Battleground, don’t kennel your baby! Send them to Jacob and Alecia’s home at DoggieVaca! They will feel like they are on vacation too and you can enjoy your time away knowing that your baby is safe, loved on and having a fabulous time hanging with Benson!
We are so happy that Izzy could vacation at Alecia and Jacob's again.
They take great care of her, make her feel like she's at home, and we don't have to worry when we're away.
And we got many great picture updates that made us laugh and be reassured she was in good hands.
Thanks so much You Two!!
Alecia & Jacob were awesome! They were friendly, happy to meet with us, very accommodating, and when we finally picked our puppy up, she had obviously had a good time. We'll be coming back, and would highly recommend them to anybody.
Thanks again Alecia & Jacob!!!!! We know Oliver is like a spoiled only child! We were surprised to have them send us a picture of Oliver at the park. They had taken him for a walk. What a great thing to do. When we picked him up we could tell he was well taken care of. We would definitely use their services again. Clean, friendly and love animals and it shows! Gary & Ginger
we were so glad our dog Izzie was able to stay with Alecia & Jacob. They took good care, replicated her experiences at home to aleviate any stress. And she was very comfortable with them at her first meeting and for her stay. We would recommend them very highly.
We had a great experience with Alecia. She was prompt in responding to my inquiries, took great care of our dog, and was flexible with our schedule and last minute arrangements. Thanks so much :)
Alecia was a wonderful host for Kobi. I felt very comfortable leaving Kobi in her care, and would do so again.
Alecia was great with my Charlie! I would certainly recommend her services based on my experience working with her. It was not easy for me to entrust a stranger with my fur baby - I definitely had my fair share of anxiety about the whole idea - but meeting Alecia put me at ease. She was calm and relaxed yet attentive and competent. She was very understanding and accomodating to Charlie's special needs. Communication was prompt and thoughtful. I received pictures via text message throughout the weekend. Charlie looked comfortable and happy in his photos, particularly during his trip to the beach. An enthusiastic thumbs up from this doggy mama.
Alecia was great with our dogs! We were able to get away for the weekend without worrying if the dogs were being cared for properly or were getting the right amount of attention. . . .so much better than any kennel, knowing our dogs were being cared for just as they would be at home.

She made sure the dogs had a comfortable environment in her home and even took the dogs on a field trip to the beach, being careful to moderate the activity for our older dog so as to not inflame her arthritis, while giving our younger dog the exercise she needed.

She also made sure to send us pictures and text updates throughout the weekend, so we could see how the dogs were doing.

We would highly recommend Alecia to anyone looking for a true "home away from home" for their dogs, and we will certainly be using her again!
