About John Steve

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Nice to meet you!

After living most of the year with John & Lisa, and assisting with the fun they've had with Dogvacay, we have adopted their vacay business for the east side of the Denver Metro area. With their same amount of expertise and love for dogs, we are proud to sit for your pets when you need to be away.

Our family loves playing and interacting with pups of all types! After losing our beloved dog a while back, we put on hold getting a new one, but the kids are asking frequently, so we'd love to get our dog fix in with one of yours! No worries! Our family is excellent with dogs, and we love to be outside. So if you're pup has lots of playfullness, we're the answer!

We offer in-home boarding and bathing.
Additionally, we can provide your furry friends with friendly walks and runs around our neighboring park.

We have all hardwoods throughout the main level for your pup to roam freely, and can accomodate a crated, dog bed, or "foot of the bed" sleeper. Need something special for your pup, just ask!

We look forward to meeting you and your faithful companion, and providing your friends with lots of love, attention and belly rubs while you're away from home.

Sincerely,
Steve and Tiffany Comandari

This is the second time Copper has stayed with John and Lisa and it has been so nice not to worry about how my pup is doing and if he is ok, because they take such good care of him. Copper plays with their 3 little dogs all day and comes home tired and happy. I'll be moving to the other side of town soon and changing dog sitters is not even an option! Love these guys!

We just picked up Cisco from his third vacay with Lisa and John. He always has a great time and Lisa and John are so gracious about the entire process. We couldn't be happier.
This was Cisco's first stay at John and Lisa's. He had a wonderful time with them and their other two dogs. John was very gracious at the drop off and pick up. He and Lisa let Cisco sleep between them in bed! It doesn't get better than that. We will definitely use them again.

Maggie had a great time at Lisa & John's. They are truly dog people. She was allowed to sleep on their bed with them, which is very important to both us and Maggie. Maggie also had a playmate to play with, which I think she misses already. They made her part of their family.

At no time did we worry about our Maggie Mae. This was the first time we left her with a Pet Sitter, and we will place her with Lisa & John when we go on our next trips.

John and Lisa are fabulous! I have a very rambunctious wheaten terrier named Cooper who doesn't do well at the larger doggie day care/dog boarding facilities (as they do not provide him with enough one-on-one care and love). When I've boarded Cooper in the past, he has come back to me seeming anxious and unhappy. However, when picking him up from John and Lisa's, I was greeted with a happy, well exercised, and well loved dog. In fact, I walked in to find Cooper cuddling with John on the couch. Apparently they had just returned from a long walk, and Cooper was so content that he wasn't sure if he wanted to get up to greet me! I will definitely be asking John and Lisa to watch Cooper again.

Lisa & John have a nice, open, home with a good back yard. Our dog, Maggie, was comfortable with their family and their 2 small dogs. When we picked her up she was happy, darting back and forth between us and Lisa. Overall a positive experience for her first extended boarding.

This was Lucy's second vacay with John & Lisa. Their home is the perfect layout for dogs to go out in the fenced backyard off leash. John & Lisa obviously love dogs and have really nice dogs of their own, that loves to ply with. She apparently had a wonderful time - luckily she was still glad to see us and come home!! It is great peace of mind to have Dogvacay hosts John and Lisa when we can't take Lucy with us when we travel!

This was our first experience leaving our 9 year old dogs with anyone. John was so kind & considerate that we were quite comfortable when it was time for us to go. Unfortunately one of the dogs was not good with her potty habits but John downplayed it (far more than I did).
We would easily let them stay with John & Lisa again if they were willing to keep them. Highly recommend these folks!

Our Lucy had an awesome time with John and Lisa! It is apparent that they love dogs. They have a fenced backyard with a nice grassy play area for the dogs. While we were gone, John sent us text message updates and photos of the fun Lucy was having playing with their dogs - as well as assuring us she was doing fine. We will definitely use them again!

Leo is a new dog for us (3 mos.) It was hard to leave him, however with pictures and text messages sent to us while we were gone, we knew Leo was in good hands. Thank you, Lisa and John P.S. Leo will be returning to your home again.
John & Lisa were great hosts. I actually think Rooney wanted to stay when we arrived to pick him up after 5 days. He was spoiled for sure! Their dogs are the sweetest and our Rooney fit right in with them, running laps around their spacious home and large, sunny backyard. We will definitely book Rooney another stay with John & Lisa!

We were very pleased with the care our Pup received at John and Lisa's. They are very caring and friendly and treated her like she was one of their own. She had a great visit and we look forward to having her stay with them again. Thank you!
Lisa and John are awesome! Before I made the reservation, they invited me to visit their home with my pets to see if the pets fit in the new environment. Their home is big, and has a lot of space for doggies to run. They also have a huge backyard where your pets can play all day safely.

Besides, Lisa and John love animals. They took care of my pets as if they were theirs. My puppy slept in their bed every night, and my cat got his own space that were completely separated from dogs. It is not easy to find a dog sitter who is willing to accept cat, and even harder to find someone who knows how to take care of a shy/scared kitty. Lisa and her sister pet and played with my cat everyday to keep him happy and loved.

I'm really glad that I found Lisa and John on dogvacay, they are nice, humorous, and very responsible. I am fully comfortable to give my pets to them in the future when I will be out of town!

Boozer's stay with John and his family was fantastic. He looked really happy when I picked him up after a 3 night stay. John and Lisa were very welcoming and respectful. He took the time to ask questions about my dog and kept me informed about him. I will definitely bring him back!

We were a bit worried about leaving our aging pug, Joey, after his lifelong dog-buddy passed away. When we met the little dogs at Lisa and John's place we felt confident that Joey would enjoy it there. Joey has some deafness and eyesight problems and their house was perfect. Joey could stay on one level and get to the yard easily. John and Lisa obviously love dogs and took excellent care of our little guy. They also handled his occasional digestive issues without complaint. We will definitely contact them again next time we need to leave town.

John and Lisa were wonderful! I received a quick response when initially contacting them. They were warm and inviting when first meeting them, and they have a great home and backyard. It was great to know our dog was in good company and well taken care of, I feel like he made some great new friends with them and their dogs. I would not hesitate to have them watch Mac again, and would highly recommend their services to anyone.

Lisa and John were wonderful with my dogs. My dogs are mostly deaf and somewhat blind and need medication. Their house had a great back yard with lots of shade and John was great about administering injected medication and introducing his dogs in way that made us all comfortable. Daisy and Rosie say "thanks".

Tiger & Ginger loved staying with Lisa and John. I will definitely have them dog sit again when the need occurs!
They sent pictures of my dog enjoying his stay. I was able to explain what my dog needed without difficulty. He seemed happy there. They kept in touch and quickly returned phone calls. He had plenty of room to run around, and they have a big yard.
This was George's second time staying at this location and he had a great time. He definitely considers it his home away from home and seemed completely comfortable there when we dropped him off and also when we picked him up. Thanks for taking such good care of him and making him feel like a part of your family!

My dogs had a very good stay with this family. They were very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommend!
I looked into several kennels and doggy daycares before deciding on DogVacay and these guys and their dogs. I'm so glad I did. George seemed happy when we picked him up and it gave me such peace of mind to know we chose the right place for him. Also, they were very accommodating with our flight schedules. We will not hesitate to use them again!

John and Lisa were great! They were able to take in Roscoe at the last minute, were very accommodating for a meet and greet, and were very welcoming and kind. It was reassuring to find a host who was so willing to make my puppy a part of their family for the weekend. Thanks again!

Lisa & John were excellent hosts! They thoroughly enjoyed taking care of Kiro and I am sure that Kiro enjoyed his stay. I would highly recommend them! Kevin
Webster had a great stay with Lisa & John! They are a wonderful family-- very personable and welcoming and had great communication from the beginning. Their home is very neat and spacious and has a great backyard for the dogs to play (they have 3 dogs of their own, so Webster had plenty of company) and easy access to it by doggy door. They took such good care of Webster, I'd be happy to recommend them to anyone! Thanks so much!

We would not ever hesitate to leave our dog with John and Lisa again. We got pictures and phone calls to let us know how Lilly, our Australian Sheppard puppy was doing on a regular basis. We were visiting from Tempe AZ to get married in Denver! And we felt so comfortable leaving our family pup with them and knowing she was well cared for. Lilly had other playmates and two great children who showed great care. She got regular walks every day. We could tell our pup was very happy when we picked her up after a week! This is SOOOO much better then the cages at dog boarding places! Susan and Michael
