5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

We have a small dog that loves to play. Very friendly towards other dogs. We would love for you to let us care for your dog while ours makes new friends. We prefer small to medium size dogs as our Poli is a tiny chihuahua, but we are willing to walk larger dogs. Our scheduled walks are usually once before breakfast at 6-7 AM and once before supper around 5-7 PM. We sometimes go out hunting Pokemon at the dog parks with other puppies too. Based on energy level of our furry friends, we may walk a third time later in the evening. Plenty of toy play time and supervised yard time throughout the day aside from the scheduled walks. House is pee pad ready for smaller dogs. Living room is an open area for play. One block away from a clean, popular dog park and next to local vet. Any questions ask!

I highly recommend Jon as a dog sitter! He took great care of my 2 dogs and gave me lots of updates. It is very apparent that he is an animal lover, book him, your dog(s) will thank you. Will definitely use his services again!!
There are no words to describe how amazing Jon is. Mia loved the time she spent with him and Poli! Many updates, pics, and videos. Everyday Mia came home happy and exhausted! Thank you so much Jon, will definitely use his service in the future!
Jon was very reliable all theee days of daycare. Both dogs seemed nice and tired at the end of the day and happy to go back the next. His own little dog is very cute. Sent photos and updates throughout the day too. Great experience all around.
Just to share my extra positive experience with Jon S .
He has been more than just a host for my little ones (2 energetic Jack Russell). I had to leave for Italy for 15 days and I could not take them with me...I did not want to leave them in the usual pet Hostel, as they suffer too much to stay closed in small rooms..so I decided to give a try to Dogvacay. I choose Jon, I informed him that my boy had problems with epilepsy and he had to take lots of pills everyday and that he needed special attentions. Jon accepted to have this responsibility and to be more prepared, he also took a course of first aid for this specific problem before me leaving him my dogs. During the time he had my dogs he updated me every day with pictures and video. Unfortunately my poor Filo (this is the name of my little boy) had fits during my absence, but Jon was capable to handle them and to give him the right support. My girl (Mia) was absolutely trilled with her experience in her new temporary home..she had all the attentions she needed. They have been well fed...walked around and looked after.. When I went to take them back ...for a couple of days they where sad as if they lost a friend....
Thank you Jon!!!! we will see you again
I wish there can be 100 stars and Jon would surpass those stars as well!
One Word: "W O W"!! Jon has surpassed my every expectation. Lucky was in heaven during his 25 day stay with Jon and his family. Jon updated us, with texts, pictures and videos, daily on how Lucky was doing during is vacation. It is most impressive how Jon responds to every email and text we sent him. We all (My wife and 3 kids) got the great opportunity to meet Jon and Poli. Everyone instantly felt the confidence, security and love that Jon has for Dogs.

1 drawback: Lucky is now sad because he misses both Jon and Poli :). I think he is in love with Poli.

To Jon: From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for taking such incredible care of Lucky!

Warning: We go on vacation often, so you'll be hearing from me just as often!!! :)
We had the best experience with Jon! He was in constant communication with us letting us know how our dog was doing, sending us videos and photos. It was very comforting to receive. Our dog really got along with their dog which I think made him much less anxious and he also had a great playmate! We will definitely use Jon again and recommend him highly!
Thank you Jon for taking care of Djacky. We had a wonderful vacation knowing that he is with friends having fun. I'm so thankful to find this site and specially Jon and Poly. For sure we will see you again. THANKS
Carcarita had a blast! She had the opportunity to be with many other dogs and interact with them. I can always tell when she has a good time. She had no stress whatsoever when I pick her up. Jon sent updates while we were away
Jon is a good pack leader!
We are sure that our dogs were well treated and had a lot of fun.
Bugsy & Sky arrived home happy and exhausted, they played a lot!

Jon was a such a great host:!he gave us daily updates and he washed our dogs before we picked them up.

We recommend him!
Jon is truly amazing at what he does. Sasha was very happy while was with Jon and his puppy. Jon kept updating us daily by sending photos and videos. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a sitter.
I would highly recommend DogVacay to anyone who needs someone to watch their dogs. Jon was amazing kept me updated with everything sent pictures and videos. I felt comfortable leaving my dog no worries. Everything was easy and very affordable. I'm definitely going to have Jon watch my dog again. And lastly you will have peace of mind.
Jon is RAD! Super good with our dog Kuma. He gave us updates, let us know she was doing good, we weren't worried for a second.

When we got Kuma back, she was exhausted from all the playing she did with Jon's pups. Highly recommended, we're definitely calling Jon again next time we go on vacation.
I would highly recommend Jon as a pet sitter! I felt very confident leaving my Lil Eva for the first time, he made me feel like everything was going to be OK, eva wasn't feeling comfty with other dogs but after a couple days with Jon she and Poli were like best buddies! Pics and updates everyday; he shows real interest in your pup. I would definitely book another vacay with them! Thanks!
Jon was a fabulous host. I was so nervous leaving my puppy for the first time and he was so great with him. I got all kinds of pictures and videos of Bentley. I would recommend Jon to any and everyone that needs a pet sitter. I will use him again for sure. :)
Jon took good care of my Snoop sent me daily pics and status i would gladly recomand his services
This is my second booking with Jon. Daily updates with videos, photos made me feel at peace knowing my dog was well looked after. He is a great dogsitter
Awsome! Jon is the best! Gemma has so much fun at his place, playing with Poli, he is so attentive! hank you so much!!!
Great experience with Jon, he was very flexible in picking up and dropping off my little Charlotte. She had an amazing time playing with Poli, as I could tell from the multiple pictures and videos Jon sent me throughout her stay (very appreciated!)

She clearly had the time of her life and was tired for a whole 24 hours after she came home.
Awsome experience! Gemma was treated like a queen! He was super attentive and always sending us pics. I'm super happy my first experience with dog vacay! Thank you again Jon!
Jon was great. he is very responsible and assisted us as first time clients to the website. I would definitely choose him again. And sierra liked him;)
Jon S is the best.
I made a last minute reservation for the long weekend, and he was incredibly responsive to my inquiries. He met me in downtown to pick up Max, although he lives in a different area. Honestly, I was not very comfortable at the beginning to leave my dog with a person I have just met, plus I didn't have the chance to go and see his place.However, he made every effort to make me feel comfortable and safe about the wellbeing of my lovely Max. During Max stay at Jon's, he was really happy and very very active most of the time. Jon walked him, took him to a dog park, pet him, and even bathed him after he got wet of rain. He treated Max as if he was his own. Jon also sent regular updates: texts, photos and videos too. He made us feel relaxed and happy during our short vacation because I can see Max happy and smiling in the photos. At the end, because of our conflicting schedules, Jon offered to drive Max to where I live free of charge!. I cannot really express my gratitude and appreciation to this guy. I definitely recommend him and if I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
Jon is awesome. It was an urgent situation. He made everything happen efficiently. Also, great host. Constant daily updates, pictures, dog fest, etc. I couldn't keep track of all the updates I was getting. Felt like my dog was on vacation. Will defiantly recommend and would contact him if a situation arises
Jon kept our Jack Russell Maggie and our Aussie Sparky for 3 days. He did a great job. The dogs were really well taken care of and you can tell Jon loves Dogs as he goes above and beyond to ensure they get enough play time and love. We will use Jon's services again. We recommend him. :)
Long walks, play time at the dog park and snuggles - my vacay had it all. My humans chose well, and I had a blast. Thank you, Uncle Jon for taking such good care of me - Mom and Dad say that I look all slim and fit and I feel like a puppy again.
He is absoultely amazing, I was dealing with last minute problems and he was able to take all of my stress away instantly and to add he was able to calm me down which most people wouldn't be able to do. Scruffy loved him and his dog and I am so appriciative. I am getting another dog so I am at ease knowing that I will be taking Scruffy and the new dog to see him for another stay over very soon. Thanks again Jon your a gem.
Jon and his fiancée are absolutely wonderful! I couldn't have dreamed of a better family to take care of my little Lily. Jon was kind to provide me with frequent updates while I was out of the country, was always available and I'll never be able to thank him enough for the peace of mind he gave me during the past couple of weeks. Keep up that smile and beautiful energy - you guys are the best!
Jon was such a great host, he gave me regular updates and made the drop off and pick up very easy. Seeing my pup playing with Poli and waking nicely made me so happy. I would ask Jon to take care of leo anytime.
This is the best host I could have asked for! It was the first time I was leaving Pixel alone and I was so scared, but Jon walked me through the process and was very supportive during the whole weekend!
Pixel had an amazing time with Poli, a cutie about the same size as him, and they went to several long walks together. It was love at first sight. When he got home, he was sooo tired, which means he had a lot of fun! I could see some of it in the updates Jon sent me many times per day!
I super recommend this family as a host! Pixel is even more polite now. Not to mention that he had a shower and came home with the softest hair he ever had! :)
Jon and his lovely fiancee are just amazing! They made me feel so secure about leaving my pup for a few days. They were willing to go above and beyond for me and my dog and I am very grateful. I received pictures throughout the weekend and status updates on how he was doing so I knew he was well taken care of for the whole time he was there! I came home to a very happy and well groomed dog :)

I'd rate them 6 out of 5 if I could!
