About Jessica

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
The space provided for your dog’s stay is in a smoke free, courtyard home. Included in your booking is all the regular routine of your dog ie. Feedings, walks, grooming, or anything you normally do. Also included is free range of contact with me via text, phone calls or email. I will send daily updates with pictures for short to moderate length stays and every couple of days for stays longer than that. You are always welcomed to contact me anytime you would like an update or just a reassurance that your dog is doing fine. Also included in the stay is the Dog Vacay Premium Insurance for more information on what is covered and how it works please contact me and I can provide you with the link. I have a toy box filled with toys for entertainment and if you look at the pictures there is a nice set of windows facing a tree out front for a day of squirrel and cat watching. My family will also provide all the cuddles and belly rubs your dog will need during the stay. Since the weather here in Houston is a humid mess most of the dogs like to stay inside the house and are allowed on all of the furniture provided they are allowed on furniture in your home. I have a dog door going to the outside area however if you dog doesn't understand dog doors I will let him/her out whenever it is needed.
I have always had a large heart and always had dogs of my own. Currently my family has 2 dogs, one is a 50 lb basset hound named Ramsey and the other is a 8 lb doxie name Marlee who is sight impaired and deaf. My dogs have gotten along well with almost all the dogs we have boarded (one being the exception.) I have the facilities that I can separate the dogs if they do not tolerate each other in an emergency situation however I prefer we set up a meet and greet and make sure that everyone is going to play nice beforehand so there are no problems. I will take preference of dogs that have come and stayed before over a dog that I have not met but reservations are on a first come first serve basis.
The only things I ask for you to provide for your dog’s stay is any information on the dog’s allergies, sickness or previous illnesses. I also ask that you provide your veterinarians information so in the rare event that something happens I can have the information that we need from your vet to take care of your dog correctly. In the event something happens that would require veterinary service I will try my best to reach you before taking your dog in if I’m provided with time to do so. The insurance provided with your stay covers most vets in my area and for more information on that please read the information provided by Dog Vacay or contact me and I can provide you the link. I ask that you provide your dog’s normal dog food, a collar, preferably with tags however I have tags with my information if you don’t have them, and a leash for walks or transporting. If you would like to bring any toys, blankets, pillows or beds that is up to you. I have plenty of places for your dog to sleep and if they are more comfortable staying in my bed they are more than welcome providing they are willing to share with me. My dogs typically like to be lazy and just sleep through most of the day, however if the weather is nice and there is an opportunity to do so I will, with your permission, take the dogs to the Kitty Hollow dog park on HWY 6.
Unlike other sitters your puppy does NOT have to be house-trained (blessed with tile floors throughout first floor), I will do my best with helping your bundle of joy to understand house-training but I don’t guarantee it will sink in after one or two stays. I do have stairs in my home but I have put up a baby gate so I don't have problems with pets falling down the stairs. Also the dogs do NOT have to be neutered. Both of my dogs are so I don’t feel it is a necessity since I won’t be housing lots of other dogs along with yours however please tell me if your dog is/isn't in case we go to the dog park down the street so I can keep an extra eye on things. I would GREATLY prefer your dog be tick and flea free since my dogs are if your dog is not tick and flea free I WILL charge you additional fees for flea and tick removal and your dog will not be allowed to be with the other dogs until the flea and ticks are gone. Also unlike other sitters I do not use other websites to advertise my services and will not keep additional dogs not covered by Dog Vacay.
Drop off / Pickup Times are very flexible to help with scheduling flights and long drives as long as we have talked previously and had the time arranged. I can pick up your dog at your home or meet you for drop off at an additional fee, but only during previously arranged hours.
Pricing is per dog per night. Additional fees for services may be required but will be arranged previously or as the occurrence arises. I have made my best attempt to provide all the information one could need for a stay with me however feel free to message me with your information or any questions and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Ginger seemed happy and content. Jessica made sure she was comfortable.
she did everything as preset, hope to use her again
Jessica and her family were awesome. We were able to book on very short notice. We did a meet and greet at her house and I went straight home to do my booking. Her house was very clean, smelled great and was set up perfectly for pet sitting. Once Sadie arrived we got many updates about her stay. I will definitely use Jessica again. I know Sadie had lots of fun with her roommates while we were gone as she slept for an entire day upon her return home. And the best part for me was Sadie never had to be crated.

Jessica was great! We got lots of pics of the puppers while they were on vacay and they were worn out when we picked them up. She took care of them as if they were her own.
My puppy, Genaro, just loves going to Jessica's. He is treated like family. Jessica and her family are a huge blessing to me. I never have to worry about my puppy's well being because I know he is in good hands. Also, Genaro always gets home tired because he's been playing all day with other dogs. I love it. It is better than leaving him all day in a kennel. Also, she basically trained him to go out an potty. I recommend her 100%

Jessica is fabulous. She comes to my house to care for my dogs (and horse) while I'm out of town. She sends me pictures and updates regularly, allowing for peace of mind while I'm out of town.
Jessica and her family was once again treated our boys to an excellent stay! She has watched them numerous time and every time they enjoy it! We will always go to her!!
Awesome job, even trimmed one of my dogs nails. Definitely using again, thanks Jessica
Jessica responds very quickly and our puppy always enjoys her stay.
Bogie the Basset hound visited Jessica & family. He had a grand time!! We were very pleased with her arrangement. Bogie had an awesome time at Doggy Disneyworld!!
She is awesome. My puppy loves her. I recommend her 100%.
Easy experience as always. Jessica was quick to respond to any questions.
Jessica and her daughter are wonderful. My dog enjoyed the stay and have a lot of fun with her family especially her daughter Morgan. I got update pretty much everyday. Will definitely place Chase at her family while I am out of down again. Thank you Jessica and Morgan!

Jessica is great. She comes to my house to take care of our animals while we are out of town. She sends photos and a quick update every time she comes out. Definitely removes the anxiety that comes with leaving behind your 4 legged family members.
My dog had a great stay at Jessica's. Everything went smoothly and I will definately recommend her to others.
Jessica is awesome! Very understanding and quick to respond to my needs.
Jessica was great with Silas, sent us regular updates and made our experience away without worry.
Jessica ws great! I really Like how she kept in contact with me throughout the day and kept me up two date with how Rocky was doing. She even took time to chat with me on the phone the day prior to get to know me and my dog. Will definitely be using her again in the future!

Jessica is kind, friendly and attentive. She sends updates on dog wellbeing to keep us informed.
She provides a clean and comfortable space for the dogs and having her owns pups helps for good social interaction.
We are satisfied with her service and would use it again.

She was excellent! She seemed incredibly conscientious. We had her here for the first time and never worried about the Doxies. We were able to relax and enjoy our vacation. Thank you Jessica!!!
Everything went great with my dog Brady's day care with Jessica. She is a pleasure to work with and is very quick to get back with you on her availability. I definitely would recommend her service.
Our dogs love it here - they're spoiled beyond belief.
The girls had an amazing time! I was a bit nervous leaving them only because I had never left them for so many days. Jessica and her family took amazing care of my munchkins! They actually cried as we drove off. Jessica kept me updated with pictures of the girls and I actually texted Jessica pretty late in the evening (around midnight) and she responded. I definitely will be taking the girls back to Jessica!

Second time leaving my dog with Jessica, and she had a blast again. I plan on using her in the future and would recommend her to anyone else looking for a sitter.
Jessica is just simply amazing! I was looking for a place for Doggie Day Care and she is so accommodating. Willow gets so excited every morning when we leave, she knows she is going to have a great play day with Jessica, her family, two dogs and other doggie visitors. I'm so glad to have found a great person and place for Willow to stay!

My Golden Retriever begs us to go out of town so he can go play at Jessica's. She's the best!
I was a nervous wreak leaving Chloe, my 4lb malteze with anyone with other dogs. She was not really socialized with ther dogs and all them tower over her pretty much.

We did a meet and greet and her family was lovely, but then there was the reality of 3 other dogs, a toddler and a older sister...

Chloe settled down and passed the sniff test with one of the dogs and the others eventually lost interest. Based on gut feeling we could trust this family, this neurotic mother left Chloe for 4 days.

Before we even got home from the drop off, Jessica texted me a picture of Chloe all curled up with one dog... then a few times a day we got updates.

We came home to a very happy and spoiled Chloe... THANK YOU JESSICA!!!!

Jessica was awesome and the dogs seemed to do very well. I will definitely book with her again if the need arises. She was sweet to work with me on an early a.m. pick up as well. I highly recommend her!
Bentley had a wonderful time at Jessica's on his vacay! He wants to go back ASAP!!
My first experience with Dog Vacay will likely be my last. My dog has always stayed at a pet lodge in the past, but I wanted to try in home boarding. Our dog has always enjoyd playing with other dogs, but at this home he didn't want to play and just kept to,himself. I don't know if it was because there was one dog that barked a lot, or too many dogs. I don't know. But the worst was he came home with fleas. He's never had fleas , but the first night home he scratched and bit himself all night. And fleas have hopped off him. I texted Jessica about it but never heard back. In addition there was no verification of vaccinations or Bordetella , at least I wasn't asked. So I don't know if any of the other dogs had current vaccinations. The pet lodge always verified those things and did a flea check before your dog can be boarded. And tomorrow I will take him for a flea bath!

Jessica was great. Sent me pics and texts throughout the stay to let me know what Paige was up to. I think Paige really liked her husband! Will use Jessica again!
Our puppy Max spent 6 days with Jessica and her family this month. She kept us updated about him during this time and I am so glad we found her as we didn't stress about him being well taken care of with us out of town on vacation. She is wonderful with the pets and genuinely cares for them as her own. Thanks Jessica

Jessica is great with my dog Natalia. She gets very nervous around people but when I take her to Jessica, Natalia feels right at home. Jessica has taken time to learn her personality and make her feel comfortable. I can go out of town with peace of mind knowing Natalia is well taken care of!

This is the second time my dog stayed with Jessica and she did a wonderful job again. She was always easy to reach and made sure my dog had a great time.
I've used Jessica twice now and she is great!! Very flexible and so easy to work with. I feel good knowing my 2 babies are well taken care of. She sends updates and I accessible if I want to check on them. I love knowing they are in such loving hands while we are away.

We are extremely happy with Jessica's dog sitting services. She is so good to our Sunnie. There is nothing like traveling with the peace of mind that our girl is in great hands.
Dart had a BLAST ! She does such an awesome job taking care of our dog! When we tell him he is going to 'Camp' , he runs to his leash and loves to go to Jessica's home !
Jessica is awesome !! Such a loving and fantastic home to leave our 4 legged child. I will continue to use her and highly recommend !! I have a lot of peace leaving our boy there. He is so happy when he arrives and her whole family is very welcoming.
Our dog - Oak had a good time at Jessica's house. She provided a passionate atmosphere for our dog during our vacation time. Really appreciate her and her family members' thoughtfulness and kindness.
Jessica and her family took wonderful care of our two pups! She kept us up-to-date on how our boys were doing and texted us priceless pics of the dogs. We were concern with our littlest one having never been boarded before and they took terrific care of him! We will definitely go back to Jessica and her family! Our boys had a great time!

Jessica and her family were awesome! They took really good care of Sunnie. Actually, I would say that they spoiled her a little bit with lots of attention and love. We know now, where Sunnie is going to stay any time we have to go out of town ;o)
Jessica was really helpful and made me feel very comfortable with leaving our dog with her. The daily pics were greatly appreciated and helped to ease our concerns about his stay (it was the first time we left our dog with someone other than family)
We had a great experience at Jessica's house. We were very happy with the care my dog received. Jessica was nice enough to prepare Molly's meat for her dinners. Most importantly, Jessica made my vacation worry free, as I knew my dog was in good hands. Thanks Jessica!

Jessica sent me pictures and updates everyday, which was really nice. It was my first time leaving Jaxson and I was worried about him. He did great! I will be using her again.
Once again great care!
Our dog Sadie has stayed with Jessica numerous times over the past few months. In our opinion, all the positive remarks found under Jessica's reviews do not give enough credit to the way Jessica and her entire family treat their "visiting dog houseguests." We, along with our Sadie, are very fortunate to have found Jessica and her family and look forward to continuing this great relationship.

Once again, Jessica did an amazing job watching our Shih Tzu! She takes care of her like we would!
Jessica was a fabulous dog sitter for our Shih Tzu. She was very accommodating and understanding. I would recommend her to a family member or friend in a heartbeat.
Once again Jessica was great!
We had our puppy stay with Jessica for almost a month and he loved it. Our boston terrier is 8 months old and he had a fantastic stay at Jessica's place. Jessica was very prompt in sending pictures of my dog during the stay (a very important aspect for every owner). She is very prompt in replying back about anything and most of all, she is very friendly in nature. Her whole family along with her two dogs have been outstanding in taking care of our dog. I would definitely user her services in the future and recommend others also to use her services. Once again thanks Jessica for taking care of Happy !

Very good job watching Kooper. Thank you
Toby had a great week long stay over the holidays with Jessica and her family! We can't waiy to use them again the next time we go out of town!!!
Awesome experience, Jessica and her family are great hosts!! She can deal with unexpected nuances (I did not realize my dog had fleas, please double check your dogs before dropping them off, I sure will the next time) she solved the problem in a heartbeat, and Hugo could enjoy the rest of his stay happy, I believe they have become a second family for him. She sent us pictures and communicated constantly. I am very grateful for them.

Jessica is amazingly awesome! My cocker spaniel Natalia loves Jessica and her family. Natalia has gone to Jessica twice and when I drop her off, she is comfortable and feels at home. I would recommend Jessica to anyone who wants their dog to have a true family feel while away on vacation!

Jessica and her family did a great job taking care of my puupy. She kept us up to date and sent us pictures . He came home happy and I would recommend her to anyone!
We really appreciate Jessica and her family's true love to our dog - Oak.
Great family. Bear is a lone dog and a little high maintenance, so it was really nice to have some puppy friends to hang out with while we were out of town. Jessica was great, we had no worries about the dog.

On the way home he was a little sad leaving and was exhausted the rest of the night. I know he had a great time. Would recommend again.

I liked the way Jessica kept in touch via text daily. My dog enjoyed his stay & I would recommend highly.
We had both of our dogs stay with Jessica and her family and they seemed to really enjoy it. There is plenty of space for them to play and just hang out with the family. We will definitely be using her again.
Once again Joker had a great time with Jessica. We decided to take a weekend trip at the last minute and Jessica was very accomodating with drop off time and last minute reservation.
Jessica keeps communicating with us how our dog was doing during these five days of vacation. It is a great experience to send out our dog for dog vacay the first time.
Jessica did a wonderful job taking care of my dog and was always available to answer any questions I had. Jessica kept in touch with me during my trip letting me know how my dog was doing and how much fun she had with the resident pets. My dog was excited to see me when I picked her up, but still couldnt help from passing out as soon as we got home, as she was playing all day. I'm glad I found some one I can trust to take care of my dog as I always feel bad when leaving my pet at Petsmart. I would definitely recommend using Jessica to others.

Joker loved his stay with Jessica so much that we have re-booked a few more nights during our relocation to the area. Jessica was very understanding of our situation and went to great lengths to ensure Joker was comfortable. During his stay Joker got to join Jessica's dogs on trips to the dog park where enjoyed playing in the water.

Our dog Boudreaux felt right at home with Jessica! Jessica is an extremely warm, friendly human with a special heart for our furry, four legged friends! She took the time to chat with me over the phone before we dropped our dog off and was interested in how she could take better care of him to make his stay as good as she could. She has a great profile on DogVacay- and it's all true- flexible drop off and pick up times, all tile floors (great if your dog has potty issues), 2 of her own friendly dogs, pet-friendly house and family. Your best bet with DogVacay is JESSICA!! She's amazingly wonderful!!!
