About Jean

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Always an animal lover. Our warm two story townhouse is dog friendly with lots of toys to play with and chipmunks, squirrels, birds and deer to watch from the patio windows. Wake up, walk, eat, outside play, cuddle time, inside play time, car ride if okay with mom or dad, nap. Love animals (sometimes more than people). I'm home all day and need some puppy love to make my day alot better. Our "Blue" passed away so this is a way to fill our hearts. Pick me, pick me. Thanks!! FYI...I only watch one families dog/dogs at a time. Your puppie will not be staying with dogs they do not know. Thanks again. P.S. I will be accepting NEW clients starting Nov. 2016. My regular clients are always welcome
back. Thanks everyone.

Jean has been caring for Puck for nearly three years. Upon arrival he jumps from the car and runs right to her front door. It is very apparent how much he likes both Jean and Richard and that he feel comfortable in their home. We are so grateful for the loving care Puck receives at his home away from home.

Jeannie and Richard are the best. We would never leave our Pepsi for this long with any other host - no comparison. She always comes home happy and, despite being so picky, Jeannie always makes sure she is well fed during her visit with them. Plus we can tell Jeannie and Richard really love her, and that's a major comfort for us. Thanks guys. Pepsi looks forward to her next visit with you. Until then, she sends many doggie kisses your way. :)

Buddy had such a wonderful time with Jean and her husband! We were updated everyday with pictures and messages and it made our vacation better knowing Buddy was being taken care of. My son said he wants Jean to watch Buddy when we go on our next vacation! Thank you so much!

Puck once again had a great visit with Jean and Richard. They make him feel totally at home with all the individual care and attention. We always check Jean's schedule prior to booking a vacation.
This was are first experience with Jean and she was fantastic. Kept us updated by text messages and photos. Samson loved it. Would highly recommend Jean and will use her again.
I could not ask for anyone better than Jean to watch Riley ! Jean made us feel so comfortable, and gave us daily updates and pictures of Riley( we felt like we never left him!!), this was the first time in 12 years we dropped Riley off and didn't cry leaving him. Leaving him with Jean and her husband made our family not feel bad about leaving Riley while we went on vacation. Jean and her husband are the only people our family will ever leave Riley with now after we experienced excellent dog care, and finally found the perfect dog sitter. Thank you Jean and Richard for giving Riley the best care possible, and giving him such a nice vacation, and us a worry free one! He will be seeing much more of you guys, he misses you guys already! Thanks again!

Journey had a "Pawsome" time with Jeannie, she made her feel as if she was at home! She had free rain of Jeannie's home, she even got to sleep in bed with them! Jeannie would send me pics and updates on how they spent their time together each day, I really enjoyed my vacation time not having any anxiety over boarding Journey, because it was as if I never left her. Best vacation for me and Journey worry free. If I was to rate Jeannie 1 being the lowest and 10 the highest, she would be an 11. Thanks Jeannie, u r the best!

Jean is the best dog sitter on dogvacay. The fact that she only watches one pet at a time is priceless. Her excellently kept home and fenced in backyard was perfect for Midnight's week long stay. Midnight is timid to new people had no problem with Jean and her husband. We looked forward to the pictures and updates she sent throughout the day. Jean is the only pet sitter I will use.

We brought our Lucy to Jean last weekend, and she felt right at home immediately. She sent me numerous picture updates showing how Lucy was doing, and when we picked her up she even smelled better than we dropped her off! It was our first time being away from Lucy since we adopted her, and it was very comforting to know she was in such great hands. I would definitely book with Jean in the future.

Amazing amazing amazing!!!! This was my first time bringing my pup or any dog to a dog sitter. Jean was amazing from the beginning. Keeping in touch with me up untill the day to bring Ruby. As soon as I met Jean I new this was the perfect person to take care of our pup. Jean was so attentive to all rubys needs. Everything about Jean her home everything was welcoming. She brought Ruby for many walks, playtime snuggle time everything a pup could want. And the constant updates and pictures made going away so much easier knowing our pup was in such a great place with great people. I would highly recommend Jean to anyone. Thank you so much again for an amazing stay for Ruby. She was so happy and welcoming of Jean even as we were leaving.

Excellent! I was able to enjoy my event knowing that my Pixie was well taken care of. Jean was very friendly and accommodating to all of Pixie's routines. Thank you Jean!!!!
As always, our girls had a great time with Jean! It was their first winter visit in the mountains, and they stayed all snugly at Jean's with the fireplace.
Jean K. was an excellent dog sitter My dog Parker was very shy when he first met her but very content and friendly when we picked him up Jean sent several pictures that confirmed this and made us feel confident that he was in good hands. It is obvious that Jean is a dog lover If you are looking for a kind caring dog sitter Jean is the right person We would highly recommend her

I am extremely grateful that we found Jean from Lake Harmony, she is awesome ,Dalilah my Golden Retreiver was well taken care of and I received daily photos, I will definitely reserve Jean again and again and again!!!, Thanx again, Diana and Dalilah
Our puppies, Embarkadaro and Heisenberg, stayed with Aunt Jean and Uncle Richard this past weekend. The pups remembered them and were so happy to return for a visit. Jean and Richard are so great with the pups and always adhere to feeding and nap schedules so the pups have a consistent schedule. When we came to pick them up, we could barely get the pups off of Jean's lap. They really enjoyed their visit and we were able to travel with no worries. Thanks again you guys! See you in February for the next trip!

Jeannie and Rich were amazing hosts. Our dog Zoe was welcomed with open arms. She felt at home the moment she walked in the door. We were updated with pictures and notes on how she was doing the whole time. I highly recommend Jeannie. She will love and treat your dog like it's her own pet.

Daisy and Salty love visiting Jean! She has a great way with dogs, including our Salty, who takes a while to warm up to people. This was our third stay with Jean, and the girls know the way to her door when we get out of the car! Already looking forward to our next visit.

By far Jeannie and Richard are our favorite dog sitters on Dog Vacay. They are the sweetest couple and made Pepsi feel at home from the very first night. Spoiled her with home made doggie treats and even sent some home for her. The nicest family, we're truly lucky that they were available and will always check with Jeannie first whenever we need help with Pepsi. Thanks Jeannie and Richard - you guys rock! :)

Jean was wonderful with my two pups! I felt very comfortable leaving them with her and her husband, and I knew they were in good hands! Sure enough when I went to pick up my furkids, they were relaxed and happy! I will definitely use Jean as a sitter again ! Thanks Jean!!! See you soon!!

Hey, just wanted to thank you again for taking such good care of out Tessa. She seemed so happy when we picked her up. It is such a comfort not to worry when we
Need to leave her. I also love the pictures you send. I hope you will be available the next time we need to leave her. Thank you so much!

Jean and Richard were awesome. We asked about setting up a meet and greet to ensure that Hero would be comfortable and happy during his stay. He settled right in like it was his own place. Jean kept us updated and sent pictures everyday while we were on our trip. We will definitely use them again when we go on our next vacation

Jean and Richard are wonderful! We've used them before with our Puggie, who has since passed away. For this trip, we were very anxious about leaving our new puppies for such a long trip. Jean always listens carefully to their daily routines and training, so that the puppies could maintain these while we were away. When we arrived to pick them up, it was clear that they bonded with Jean and had made some new friends!! I can travel with an easy mind knowing my pups are loved and cared for! Thanks Jean and Richard!

This was our dogs' second time staying with Jean, and it was perfect! Daisy even remembered the way from the car to Jean's front door a full year later, so she definitely likes it there!

We received photo updates throughout the weekend. The girls definitely had a nice weekend in the country.

Jean is wonderful!

Puck had a fantastic visit as usual. Once again we were able to relax and enjoy our vacation knowing Puck was in such good hands.
Sterling loves staying with Jean. We know she is well taken care of and that gives us peace of mind.
This is our dog, Bullit's second vaca with Jeannie and Richard, We know Bullit couldn't be more well taken care of or in any better hands then with Jeannie. Both Jeannie and Richard take the time to get to really know your pet and go above and beyond taking care of their every need, There is no better place to put your dog then in their care. They just know how to make your dog happy and you pleased. Thank you again, Jeannie and Richard.

Jeannie is awesome! She sent pictures and told us all about Mia's adventures everyday. It felt good knowing that while we were on vacation, Mia was on vacation too. We were away for 10 days and Mia looks worn out, which for a Jack Russell is an accomplishment. I never hesitate to use Jeannie for any length of stay. You shouldn't either.

I am so happy to have found Jean. I have never used a kennel so it was always so difficult to go anywhere that is not pet friendly. But Tessa seemed to really enjoy her time with Jean. She was so kind and good with her. It was a relief to be able to leave her knowing she was in good hands. Thank you so much Jean!!!

My husband and I are so happy that we have found Jeannie and Richard! Our dog, Cooper, had a fabulous vacation with them while we were away for the weekend and he came home tired from all the adventures that he had while he was with Jeannie (which is not typical for our energetic boxer)! Jeannie sent us text messages with updates on how Cooper was doing every day. She was so thoughtful to send us a picture of Cooper playing with his favorite toy in her living room about 2 hours after we dropped him off, it made us so happy that he was already comfortable with Jeannie and Richard! I highly recommend Jeannie, she sincerely loves dogs. Cooper will certainly be seeing her again.

Once again Elroy told us he had a great time with Aunt Jeannie & Uncle Richard. And we had another guilt free vacation. Thanks for the peace of mind - very much appreciated.
I couldn't be more pleased with the loving care Jean and Richard provided for my Molly. If, like me you object to the idea of a kennel, they are the perfect alternative.My heartfelt thanks for taking such good care of my baby girl.
Jean and Richard were so great with our Pug, Olive, who passed away in early April. We are heartbroken, but have adopted two sister puppies who were in need of a forever home. They met Jean and Richard last weekend and the puppy love was a hit! We are so fortunate to have Jean and Richard to care for and love our girls when we are away. Thank you!

Sterling was very happy to spend time again with Jean and her husband Richard. We know she is well taken care of and we can go and not have to worry about her.
It was nice to know that Bullit was having as good of a time on his vacay as we were having on ours. Constant updates with pictures let us know that he was being well taken care of. It is easy to see that Jeanie and Richard cared for him as if he was their own. We do not know where we will be going on our next vacation, but we know where he will be going for his.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Jean. My dogs ADORE this lady! They love going over to her home and she is so good to them.
I only hate gushing because it means other people may want to hire her and I'm a little posessive! :)
Seriously, she is wonderful and does a great job taking care of your fur-babies. It makes going away and leaving them very easy and there's no worry or stress.

Generous with her time! This wonderful lady is so darn flexible! SO lucky to have her.
Jean is SO sweet! She treats the pups better than I do. :) I never have to worry about them as I know she loves them. :)
She is wonderful and the dogs adore her. Couldn't ask for a better sitter for my fur-babies.
As usual she was fantastic! We love Jean. The fur babbabies are always excited to see her.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this lady and her husband. They were so kind and patient and truly treated my fur babies like royalty. I have no doubt that they will enjoy their next stay with this wonderful couple at the "resort".
You could tell Jean was a dog lover the first time we spoke with her. She has a lovely home and we know Sterling was well loved and taken care of while she was there.
Mia had another great visit with Auntie Jeannie. She always has fun time playing fetch when sleeping over. Thanks for another great Dog Vacay!
A heartfelt thanks to Jean and Richard for always taking such good care of Puck. He had another wonderful stay. You always go above and beyond to make him happy and feel at home.
Jeannie was great. She really took the time to play with Mia, our Jack Russell Terrier. Mia came home tired and happy!
I have a pug named Olive. Olive is very social with humans and comes to work with me every day. Recently, I lost my pug caretaker and was anxious about an alternative. I could not leave her in a kennel. I found Jean and Richard on Pet Vacay. We met in advance and Olive was able to check them out as well as their home. During my trip, Jean texted me photos and messages about Olive's day which alleviated any stress about how she was doing. Jean and Richard were kind, warm, and genuinely cared for my girl as I would have. I was able to enjoy my trip. I hesitated to write this glowing review only because I hope Jean and Richard are available every time I need them! Thanks Auntie Jean and Uncle Richard. You are wonderful!

Our dogs LOVED their stay with Jean and her husband! One dog has separation anxiety, and the other takes a while to warm up to new people, and they both seemed at ease right away. Jean is super knowledgeable about dogs, and sends great updates with photos during the vacay. We will definitely have our dogs stay with Jean again next time we are in the area!

We cannot rave enough on how happy we were with Elroy's stay with Jeannie & her husband. Numerous updates with a photo attached put us at ease knowing our senior dog was in caring hands. This is our first trip that we did not feel the guilt of previous boarding options. Finding Jeannie is easily one of our best discoveries.

Jean was the best for our little guy! She gave him lots of attention and sent us pictures of him on a frequent basis. Jean was pretty much immediately responsive to our texts and let us know our dog was in good hands. Jean is very professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is considering using her services.

Jean Kline is a canine Super Mom—our 2-year-old standard poodle Molly's tail was instantly wagging as we dropped her off for two nights. Jeannie and her husband Richard are dog lovers who happily share their comfortable dog-attuned home. Molly was allowed to wander freely upstairs and down, jump on couches (just like in our apartment), and sleep in the master bed if she so preferred. We very much appreciated getting TWO text message updates (one with a photo) during the weekend. The next time we return to the Split Rock/Lake Harmony area we will definitely "repeat" with Jeannie!
(And Molly agrees.)
Highly recommended.

Jean and Richard are a very warm and dog loving couple.They opened their home to Kodiak, left her sleep with them, found toys for here,took her for walks and a ride in the car. She loved loved staying with them and would go back any time. She recommends Jean and Richard to all of her dog friends and owners!!!!

Our 1 year old Golden/Lab stayed with Jeannie and her husband for a week in June 2014. Jeannie was very quick to respond when communicating on DogVacay.com and easy to contact via text/call for the remainder of the experience. We received text updates (often with pictures) about twice a day during our dog's stay. Our dog clearly had a delightful vacation with lots of play time and chipmunks to watch. Jeannie also went the extra mile to make sure our dog had everything she needed. It was a great relief to know our dog was staying in a safe and loving home with two wonderful people. If we are ever in the area again, we will certainly book with Jeannie.

Jean is WONDERFUL with dogs. Both my prior dog Daisy and Missy loved their stays with her. Missy is a shy, frightened rescue dog, but Jean was so good with her that she stopped being scared. I love the photos we get of the dogs while she has them in her care. Can't say enough good about her. Thanks!

Jean was wonderful! After our meet and greet we felt very secure about leaving our dog with her. She lavished with attention, took him for walks and car rides but most importantly made sure he was comfortable in his new surroundings.. Although we were difficult to reach during our trip Jean still manage to send us regular updates. Our dog Puck enjoyed his vacation at Jean's house and we enjoyed our vacation because we knew Puck was being well taken care of by Jean.

We just picked up our dogs from another fantastic stay with Jeannie! I am so glad that we were able to find such a great person to take care of our girls while we are away. Charm & Hershey will be looking forward to their next visit!
Awesome experience! Our dogs really enjoyed their stay and we got photos and texts from
Jean throughout the week which helped us to relax on our vacation. We will definitely use Jean again! The dogs were worn out from all the fun they had on their vacation!

Charm & Hershey had an excellent experience with Jeannie! She made me feel comfortable leaving them from the start, and sent daily picture updates. The girls are far apart in age, and I felt assured that each got the love & attention that they needed. We will definitely be booking with Jeannie again in the future!

My dog had a wonderful time! She loved the attention, animals to watch through the doors and car trips with Jean. This was such a great experience for her that we will definitely be planning on her visiting again in June 2014.
Jean is the most wonderful person. She made me feel welcome in her house. It made me feel that my dog was is good Hands. I love the fact that she had questions of my dog and ask permission if he can be in the couch...she had alot of toys for my dog to play with.... I recommend Jean to those who are looking for someone to take care of a dog Jean is the sweetest person and you can see that she loves dogs....
