About John and Judy

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, our names are John and Judy. Judy has a combined total of over 20 years of professional grooming, training, boarding and rescue experience. All of this training has provided her experience with many breeds, temperaments, training levels and health issues.

We have fostered many litters of puppies from as young as a few hours old until they were old enough to be adopted. We also have experience nursing sick and injured foster dogs back to health.

We have a separate room set aside for shy or aggressive dogs that may not feel comfortable socializing.

Judy grooms professionally and charges according to breed, size and services requested.

We also offer training while he or she is visiting.

First time leaving our fur babies with anyone, and John and Judy made the process very easy! Our youngest puppy(6 mos old) is a bit nervous around other dogs. Judy had her completely relaxed within an hour! (She sent us the video as proof!) We received pictures and text updates the whole 3 days they had our dogs! Excellent service!

John and Judy and Judy's mom were amazing! They took such good care of our dogs. We got lots of picture and text updates. This was a great experience for our first time using dogvacay.
John and Judy had Molly for a week and she came home so happy! It was clear that she was loved and when I am in Vegas again, I will definitely use them to care for my Molls. Thanks John, Judy, and company!!
Sent me plenty of pictures, treated my fog like he was at home, was very helpful and gave me piece of mind when I was out of town.
We absolutely love Judy and John! We were in a bind when our last sitter stopped boarding dogs and we had a horrible and expensive experience with a local boarding place, a coworker mentioned dogvacay.com. We were hesitant to leave our pup who we consider a son with a random stranger. We interviewed Judy and John before deciding to board with them and now a year and a half later they are the only people we trust! Our pup loves it at their home and always comes home happy and well taken care of. So happy we found Judy and John!

Great Job!
My pet Halia had a great time, I almost think she was sad to come home and leave her pet friends behind. I will definitely use Judy again.
Our Boxer puppy seemed to thoroughly enjoy his stay with Judy! Will definitely use her again!
Bowie enjoyed the stay.
Our 70 pound "lap" dog seemed very happy and well loved while staying with John & Judy. He came home relaxed and happy - much better than when he would come home from a boarding place. We got plenty of pictures and even some video to know our pup was doing okay. We would definitely use John & Judy again.

This past week is the second time our Atlanta has stayed with John and Judy and we can't say enough about how good they treat our girl. They are the best and with Judy and John you can't go wrong.
Judy was so accommodating for our travel plans. She was friendly and wonderful with our dogs. She did a great job grooming our dogs as well. We will schedule with Judy on our next visit!!
Judy and John did an amazing job with Our Cane Corso, Rogue! They sent us pictures daily and let us know how she was doing throughout each day. Would highly recommend!
This was my first time leaving my dog with a stranger & traveling with him & my sister's dog. I couldn't find anyone to watch him so I found a pet friendly hotel but I needed daycare because we were not leaving after checkout. I was very pleased to have found Judy. She answered my questions in a timely manner & was really nice. She sent us photos so we knew our babies were doing fine. I would definitely use Judy again if the need arises. Thank you Judy.

Sadie had a great time at John and Judy's home. I could tell from the pictures sent to me that she was in a loving and caring environment. That is very important to me since I am a disabled veteran and Sadie is my companion dog. (German Shepherd)
We had such a great experience with John and Judy. Our dog, Duke, is 93lbs of pure energy, and he fit right in with their pack. We felt 100% confident to leave Duke with them, and we will definitely use them again soon!
Wonderful people and dog lovers. Clean and safe environment. I would use them again. Thank you!
John & Judy were great! It was a long trip and all seemed to be great when we got back. Definitely would use them again.
Our husky, Tikaani, enjoyed the care he received from Judy! Tikaani is a high energy dog. She sent us photos during his stay, and kept us informed throughout of his activities.They took excellent care of him. We highly recommend Judy to anyone needing an experienced caretaker for their dogs. They have an enclosed cinder block yard in which the dogs can play and work off their energy! Judy even washed his doggie bed...it was better than new!!! Our dog enjoyed playing with Zeb, her poodle!

Excellent service , will use service again.
Our first time using Dog Vacancies and John & Judy made the experience stress free for us and our 4 dogs. Judy sent pictures to reassure us that the dogs were settling in well which was a huge relief!
Judy and John did a wonderful job of sitting Otis. Judging from the photos and conversation. ...Otis bonded with the family....especially Zeb their standard Poodle..there were photos of Otis and Zeb playing and napping together...so cute. Also several pix of John and Otis playing. Judy said John was hoping that we would decide to leave Otis with them.:) we will certainly have him visit again via DogVacay. Judy is a professional groomer and trainer which just adds to her abilities and care. They are highly recommended.

Nacho loves being there and is treated just like one of Judy's own. Couldn't ask for a better and worry free place.
Blaze is 10 years of age and had never stayed with anyone other than family members. We left him for 7 days and they took excellent care of him. They were interested in keeping him comfortable. I am glad to find them and this site ! Michelle
John & Judy were great with my two girls. Judy kept us informed throughout their stay on how they were doing as well as feeding updates. I really appreciated that since one of my girls is a diabetic. I will definitely use them again.
John and Judy were great!
Pawsome!!!!! Judy and her family are great. We left Atlanta with Judy for 8 days and when we came to pick her up she was a happy, healthy and well adjusted rottie. We received pictures to update us on how she was doing. This is our first reservation with DogVacay and it went so well that I would recommend Judy and John and DogVacay to anyone. Thanks again Judy. You are the best!!!!!

I was refered to Judy through a Woman who works at a well known pet store. I was a little worried that if have trouble finding someone I could trust with my new puppy while I went out of town, but Judy was amazing!

Judy answered all the questions I had and was very easy to make arrangements with. She did an amazing job giving Nacho his first grooming. She always sent me pictures to keep me updated.

When I came back to get my dog you could tell he had a blast and almost seemed like he didn't want to leave her. She was wonderful and Nacho can't wait to come back in a few weeks for Thanksgiving.

Thank you Judy!!!

judy was great and she kept in touch with us during buzz's stay. thanks a lot emma and buzz
We have used the services of hosts John and Judy two times now and both have been positive experiences. There is very good interaction with texts and pictures on a regular basis. Our little ones come home happy which shows they are well taken care of while we are away from them. We will definitely use them again when the need arises.

Great hosts! I loved all the pictures I was sent so I could see how he was doing. He looked like he had such a blast and will definitley use them again if I leave!!
My dogs really enjoyed their stay at Judy's. I have picked them up from other dog sitters and they would be very anxious or a bit off. When I picked up Bowser and Ralph from Judy's, I could tell they had a great time.
Excellent excellent excellent!
Wonderful! I always feel confident leaving Mouse hereM
AMAZING!! Judy, John and her mom are just wonderful people. Judy immediately understood my girl's fears, and addressed a subliminal negative copping behavior that my daughter didn't even realize was making my girl's anxiety worse. It took both my dogs about half a day to relax, and soon my two were playing with her two...AMAZING!! The time my dogs spent with her dogs and family, really improved my girl's attitude towards other dogs. Thank you, Judy and family. The Reid family, Henderson

Judy and Zeb were the perfect host. I interviewed a dozen facilities and host and I was most comfortable with Judy and her dogs. As we know puppies can be very challanging and she was very patient with mine. My dog was very happy when we picked her up and very tired from all of the play time she had. She was tired even the next day. I think she missed Zeb. I will be using her as much as needed in the future.

I wanted a night out in Las Vegas with the girlfriend while passing through town on a road trip. Judy was very accommodating, even when our plans changed due to a mechanical breakdown.

I was nervous to leave my boy with a stranger on 4th of July (fireworks) but my fears were totally unfounded. Judy and her family took great care of my boy. I'll use her again when I pass through Vegas again!

Judy and her family are the BEST. If you are lucky enough for her to take your furry loved ones into her home, they will have the best vacation, guaranteed.
Very flexible, available to answer questions, and my dog was happy and healthy when we left! Thank you!
Left Sam for a day and night with Judy S. He got along very well with Judy and her dogs.
It was so refreshing to find Judy on here. We had to leave our puppy Bocce longer than we have ever had to leave her before, and it just meant so much to us knowing that she was in good hands and wasn't in a kennel... I didn't have to worry about her experiencing separation anxiety! We will definitely be bringing her back, such a gracious host.

I have a very high energy 1.5 year old Standard Poodle mix who requires a lot of training and consistency. When I've left him at traditional boarding facilities, he has come back practically feral. However, when he came back from Judy's, he was incredibly well-behaved and also happy to boot! She was very kind and unphased by his puppy behaviors. She is great with dogs and treats the dogs staying with her as if they were her own. My dog could not have had a better vacay (and I could not have had better peace of mind)!

Our dog, Molly, loved it at Judy's house. She came home very happy. Judy was very flexible to our needs. I made the reservation just the night before because our other plans fell through. Judy accepted the reservation within an hour of the request being made. She was also diligent in administering Molly's medication twice each day and checking to make sure her stitches from a recent surgery were not infected. Judy also posted pictures. I will definitely use Judy again.

The best in Vegas to watch your pups. Judy and her husband have a perfect home and they are great with our dogs. Highly recommended!
Judy and her family took such good care of the dogs that I think that they could have stayed there for even longer and would have been very happy. With pictures coming multiple times per day, we could see that our dogs were well taken care of, given great attention, and were comfortable staying with Judy.

If you are looking for an excellent host, I would highly recommend Judy. She made us feel like our dogs were with family and we hope that the next time we need to leave town, that she is available.

Having Judy watch my pups was the first experience I had using DogVacay, and it was a great one! She was helpful and informative during the pre-reservation phase, and while she was watching my dogs she sent several photos of them daily, which made me so happy. It was hard to leave my pups for the first time ever with a stranger, but Judy eased my nerves by her friendly and helpful demeanor, I would use DogVacay and specifically Judy again in the future!

Judy was great with our dogs! She was able to get my husky to eat and both dogs to take their twice daily medicine.

She was really great about sending picture updates and dealing with our phone calls to check up on the puppies. We will definitely be using Judy again!

Judy S. was great! She treated my boys well. This was the first time I had a petsitter for my boys other than family and she made me feel comfortable with the care they were receiving when I was gone.I would most definitely hire her again the next time I need some care for my boys while I am away. Thank you so much Judy S.! You are an asset to DogVacay.com.
