About John

Single Cape Cod home in a residential neighborhood with a fenced-in yard. I'm retired with lots of time on my hands.

Judy and I both have always been active with dogs, and since we no longer have a dog of our own, we can still get to enjoy having
them around on a part-time basis. We call them our "granddogs" and care for them like they are our own.

We have had the pleasure of meeting some really wonderful dogs, as well as their owners. However, we've found that we prefer small to medium sized dogs and will no longer be caring for large dogs.

Each dog becomes an important part of our family, even for the short time we’ve had them.

Judy and John, Thanks for taking care of Penny for us. I know she had a great time staying with you. Susan
Five stars for John and Judy. Jackson came home so happy tonight. He had a great time. Thank you for a fun time......woof woof
John & Judy are great couple who take care of our pets as their own. I dropped my pet few times and my last drop off was for 4 nights. They have this cute little backyard good for pets to run around. They are not kept in crates and they roam around the house as they wish. She even sends me pics of her so I do not miss my pet. Great service and I recommend to everyone. Will use their service again.

Judy and John were wonderful. They are very experienced and relaxed with dogs and Pepper had a great time. They sent us notes and pictures showing Pepper had settled in fine. We will definitely have Pepper return.
So glad to have John and Judy to take care of Penny. They are so good with her and I think Penny really loves going to their house for a vacation. Sue
We and our dog were very pleased with the care he received while staying with John and Judy. They treated him as a member of their family and I think he enjoyed the interaction with the other dogs that were staying there. We would definitely use their services again.

Judy is so sweet....thank you so much for all the sweetness....
Jackson had a lovely time as usual. Thank you for the good time.
John and Judy are amazing. From the moment we met them, we felt so comfortable with them. My dogs had so much love and attention. Will be using and recommending them to everyone!!!
Awesome as always.
Jackson came home very happy. He seemed to have a lovely time with John and his wife and all the furball friends. We will return. Thank you for taking good care of Jackson.
I am thrilled to have found Judy & John!! They are awesome caretakers for my little guy, Max. During our meet and greet, it was obvious they were caring people with a true passion for dogs. Max was happy and loved running around their beautiful, fenced-in yard. He was even happier when I dropped him off to stay a few days. It put my mind at ease knowing Max was in a loving home getting personal attention. Thanks Judy and John for treating Max as you own!!

John and Judy are so welcoming! I don't like putting my dog at the kennel, even though the one we used had social time, my dog would usually come home with a stomach ache (my dog is old and every little stress caused her upset stomach.) With John and Judy, she had so much fun with the other dogs that she ate all her food. She didn't even want to leave when I went to pick her up...she went right back sitting next to John. Thanks John and Judy for such a great experience. I'd definitely take my dog there again if John and Judy are available!

I was not able to do a meet n greet beforehand, but as soon as I arrived at John & Judy's, I felt very comfortable leaving Muffin with them. My dog is a senior, and they were very patient with her.
John and Judy, Thank you again for taking care of Penny. She has a great time at your house and I know I don't need to worry about her under your care. Susan A
We were a bit concerned about leaving our dogs because Paisley is a rescue pup. When we have her around other dogs, she emits a low-pitched growl that raises the hair on our arms. I explained the situation to Judy when I set up the "meet and greet."

When I arrived with Shady and Paisley, several dogs were excitedly greeting us from the inside of the glass storm door. Judy put them in the yard and had me bring our two girls in. They excitedly ran from room to room taking in all of the glorious doggie smells.

When we reached the back slider, Paisley went into the growl. Judy's eyebrows went up and she scooped her into her arms. "This isn't an aggressive growl," she explained. "This is a frightened growl." She stroked Paisley, assuring her that she was safe. Over time, she let Shady out with the other dogs so Paisley could see that they were friendly. Eventually, after sitting with her in her lap, she put her down. Paisley and the pack happily got to know one another. We were sold!

When we returned from vacation both "girls" were happy and healthy. They even got to sleep with Grandma Judy and Grandpa John. We hope to be using their services for many years to come.

We could not ask for a better host. John and Judy are definitely dog whisperers. They truly treated
Bailey like he was their own and he came home looking all brushed and sparkly clean and happy as a lark. We can't thank them enough.

Bob and Lynne O.
P.S. Bailey sends his love!

Judy and John, We can't thank you enough for taking such good care of Vanna. She really bonded with you and I know she enjoyed all your tender loving care. Truly, I think she wants me to arrange another sleep over really soon! Evvy and Ron
John and Judy were great. I felt very comfortable with them as soon as we met. I feel Penny felt was very comfortable there too and taken very good care of. I had a worry free few days leaving Penny with John and Judy. I will definitely use them again.

Bella had a great time as usual!
Great experience for our dog and for us. Thanks, Judy and John, we very much appreciate your care and affection for our dog.
Excellent experience. Great stay and my dog was clearly at home from the first moment. John and Judy were so welcoming and friendly. Will definitely use their services in the future.
Thanks J&J for all the love and care you gave to Gitta!

Happy as always! Thanks John and Judy!
It was a miracle to find Jim and Judy who offered such a perfect home away from home for my 10 year old sheltered dog who had no prior experience staying in someone else's home. As a recent newcomer to Pa., I was originally afraid I had no option but to board my dog in a kennel during my planned week long vacation. From the moment I met Jim and Judy and they enthusiastically welcomed my dog into their home, he seemed happy and I knew I could rest assured that he would be in great, professional, dog lover's hands. Receiving pictures of him relaxing and playing with a fellow pet guest while I was away, affirmed my confidence in their care and their skill in helping my dog make new friends. I will definitely seek their services for my and/or my dog's next vacation and am so grateful for the extraordinary care and attention they provided my dog!

John and Judy are a very delightful couple that truly love the dogs entrusted to their care. They bonded very quickly to my dog and he to them. They are knowledgeable, easy going and accomodating. Both my dog and I had a great experience and I would not hesitate to utilize their services again or to refer them to my friends.

John and Judy were great! We could not have been happeir with them! Bella seemed really at ease and comfortable there.
John and Judy made my little girl feel so loved and welcome. I know I will feel comfortable in the future to be able to go away and know that she is loved and with a "grandma and grandpop" who love her as much as I do!! I can't thank you enough!
John was great! Thanks!
Oops! It's been a while since our vacation and I never reviewed Hagen's stay with John & Judy! He loved it! He came home as happy as ever and I would (and have) suggest them to anyone!
Samantha was very well loved and cared for over the ten days. We are extremely pleased. :)
Thanks to John and Judy we were able to have a worry free vacation concerning our Lilly. They treated her like she was part of their family. They went above and beyond to cater to her habits and routines and we are so grateful for all they did. It's a comfort to know she was well cared for and we will definitely take her to them when we travel again.

Thank you so much.

We knew immediately when we met John and Judy that they were a perfect match for our little girl. They were warm and friendly and it was love at first sight for "Millie". Their house is homey and dog friendly--a perfect fenced-in back yard. They are dog lovers for sure! We did not worry at all that our pet was unhappy--we were afraid she would not want to come home! It was like dropping the kids off at Grammy and Pop-Pop's.

We will definitely use them again if the need arises.

As soon as we met John and Judy we knew we made the right choice. Bear was comfortable there as soon as he walked in. Leaving him with them was like leaving him with family. They treated him like their own dog. Bear was happy and we went on vacation without any worries. We will definitely take him back again. In fact, we may go away more often now that we know we can leave him in good hands!

John and Judy cared for our dog Sophie while we vacationed for a week. I was so happy to have found them! They took her on long walks and treated her just like she was their own dog. They even took her to visit friends! My husband and I didn't worry about her at all while we were gone. I will definitely leave Sophie with them again when we go away. They are wonderful, caring people and true dog lovers!!

John and his wife were excellent hosts. They spoiled my energetic dobie with long walks, lots of ball playing and plenty of petting. They didn't even mind feeding raw. My dog came home tired and happy. I will definitely be using John's services again.

John and Judy were wonderful hosts! Our dog, Jewels, loved being at their house and didn't want to come home. We would highly recommend them. Jewels was well-cared for and loved while we were away. Many thanks to John and Judy - we had a great vacation knowing our dog was in such great hands.

John and his wife, Judy, were excellent hosts for my Golden Retriever Abby! They are a dog loving couple and Abby was right at home on our first visit. We enjoyed our vacation knowing that Abby was very well cared for. We will definitely be booking our next doggie vacay with John and Judy.
