She was awesome!!!!! Got updates on my fur baby!
Jean was a really awesome host. It's our first time boarding our dog and he caused a little few issues for Jean (such as not allowing her to sleep...hahaha), but Jean was very understanding and patient. She's a great person and a great host.
Jean provided a loving home with lots of attention to our 2 pups while we were on vacation for 2 weeks and also for another weekend trip. We felt relaxed and comfortable knowing they were in such good hands. Jean's backyard is amazing- I know the dogs had a great time exploring it outside! We highly recommend Jean- she clearly loves dogs and goes out of her way to make sure they are very well taken care of!
Jean was wonderful with Bandit. He was well cared for and we were kept updated the whole time. Thank you Jean for taking such "pawsome" care of Bandit!
This is the second time our puppy has spent time with Jean. He was actually excited to walk up to her beautiful home and whined to get in! When we picked him up he was very happy, not stressed at all. I highly recommend Jean!
Jean was a very caring and loving pet sitter. She took excellent care of our doggie. We will be using her services in the future.
Jean was so very nice and caring. Her home was pup proof and has a nice yard. Without asking, she took it upon herself to text me photo updates of him eating dinner, cuddling on the couch, and snuggled in her sweater at bedtime. I highly recommend Jean and will be back!
Last minuet reservation, first time leaving our dog of 6 months. Was concerned how he would do. Was able to do a meet and greet with Jean.
Our Matty did good. We are so thankful for Jean to accept our little guy, especially at short notice.
She even sent pics. Felt so much at ease knowing Matty was being taken care of.
Thanks Jean!!
Jean is a very special pet owner and pet caregiver. We were very impressed with the freedom and care our dogs received from her. We also appreciated the update texts w/photos to assure us everything was going great! Very pleased to have found dogvacay and Jean, whom we will definitely book with again when needed.
Jean is always accommodating and understanding of our young puppy Oreo - thanks as always Jean!
Jean is a godsend; I wouldn't know what to do without her! She's always there when I need her; very flexible with me adjusting dates and times on short notice. Jean truly cares about each and every pet as if it were her own. If I could give her 10 stars I would!
Jean is great! My husband and I were in search of a doggy sitter and I stumbled upon and started reading Jean's reviews. Everyone had amazing things to say about her so we scheduled a meet and greet. My 14 yr old Chihuahua is a brat with other dogs so I was nervous! I also don't trust many people with my dog, but after meeting Jean and seeing how "Chilly" did with all the other dogs I felt very comfortable and certain that I was leaving her in good hands. Jean is so sweet and clearly has a love for dogs. Her home is very nice and set up perfectly for them. They have lots of room, tons of shade, free access to the outside when they need it and I am sure my doggy felt comfy there! Jean was very accommodating with our drop off and pickup times and we also got videos and pics while we were away! Chilly didn't even seem too excited to have to go home when we got there to pick her up! I highly recommend Jean and I look forward to having someone I trust to doggy sit the next time I am in need :)
Jean is always so accommodating and as we arrived to pick up our puppy, Oreo was happily playing with his new friends. We're happy, Oreo is happy :)
Jean was very gracious and understanding for our puppy as this was his first significant time socializing with other dogs. We're very pleased and will be back in a few weeks for another stay!
First time user of dogvacay. I can't even express what a great experience it has been with Jean.

We had to travel on short notice for an extended time which wasn't a problem for her. My Foxy a 10 year old senior pomeranian got exceptional care, her special diet was happily accommodated.

Foxy had a genuine good time playing with Jeans dogs as well as guest dogs and plenty of toys. She came home brushed, very happy, well mannered, well adjusted, and calm.

Foxy and I have made a great new friend in Jean.
As always Jean is amazing. She treats your dog just like one of her own. Our Buster loves all the playtime with the other dogs...he is missing his "girlfriend" Madison. And he says, sorry Jean for chewing up your dog bed! We will definitely be back.
I felt very comfortable leaving our new little dog with Jean. We took Laney to meet her, her dogs, and see where Laney would be staying. The environment was very dog friendly and I felt that she would be very safe there. Jean treated her just as we do at home (meaning she was allowed on the furniture). Jean sent photos daily and kept me up to date on how she was doing. I don't plan on leaving our little girl with anyone else now, but Jean.

Thanks Jean,
from Laney, Lori & Bud
Jean was great with our two Jack Russell Terriers. They got along great with her own dogs, and the pics she sent during their stay showed them having a good time. Despite the number of dogs she may have on hand, her house is plenty big for a comfortable stay. Our younger JRT is used to having a lap to sleep on, and Jean happily obliged.
We left our little Doxie Captain with Jean for 4 + weeks and we were very pleased. Jean kept us informed on his well being while we were gone and sent pictures. The hard part of traveling is leaving the dog. Our trip went well knowing that he was in good hands.
We will definitely use Jean again.
Jean did a great job.
Jean was amazing! She was super responsive and sent updates on Benji's stay with pictures and everything! My pup, whose usually a pretty shy guy when meeting other dogs, was so tired after coming home, he basically slept for a whole day! We'll definitely be seeing Jean and her doggies again!
Jean is the best!

This was our 1st experience using this type of service for our dogs so we were nervous to say the least. We met with jean for a meet and greet before leaving our dogs, she welcomed us into her home like we were old friends. Her home is just beautiful and dog friendly at the same time. She sent pictures and gave us an update while we were gone daily... Really how great is that! Our Boston was having such a good time she didn't want to leave her new friends when we picked her up and our princess chihuahua who really doesn't care for change walked out like royalty, cool calm and collected....I really can't say enough about our experience with Jean.. I don't know who is more excited to go back me or the
Jean was absolutely THE BEST! She went above and beyond the call of duty. Has taken us many years to find someone responsible enough and caring enough to take care of our loved ones. She send us photos and updates during our trip away. Not to mention she is an extremely nice human being!! Her home is VERY dog friendly and she took excellent care at feeding time. Was a complete ease of mind knowing the dogs were well taken care of while we were away. Kinda don't want to tell anyone about her because she is SO good that it is getting hard to book with her. A++++++ Highly recommended!! THANK YOU JEANNIE!!
Jean is fabulous. Maggie adores her and loves going for a visit. Jean sends you regular updates. An awesome dog sitter.
Jean welcomed Kookie like one of her own and I felt confident leaving my sweet pup with her. I really appreciated how flexible and friendly she was. Kookie was a happy camper.
Jean treats our Belle just like a member of the family. Jean is very caring. We will be happy to leave Belle at her home again.
Our dog has been going to Jean for over a year now. We couldn't be happier. He loves going to her house and is always spoiled and well cared for. Jean response very quickly and is super flexible.
Jean is our favorite dog sitter because she really takes great care of our dog Coco. She really makes sure Coco is happy. Our dog loves being with Jean and her other dogs. Coco enjoys her time there and loves playing with the other dogs too. We are very thankful for Jean.
Jean is wonderful with my dog Brody. I feel very comfortable leaving him at her house!
First time user of Dog Vacay. Jean is wonderful, her home is doggie safe and comfortable. My dog had a great time with her resident doggies and cuddling on Jean's lap and playing endless fetch with Otto. Thank You Jean for making our trip easier.
Jean was amazing. She took such great care of Buster and really eased our fears of leaving our Buster for the first time. We really felt like he was treated just like one of her own. She truly loves dogs and it shows. Jean even took pictures of Buster and texted them to us during our vacation. We would recommend her anytime and will not hesitate to contact her in the future to watch our Buster.
So glad I found this site and Jean. She LOVES her dogs and you can tell. Our dog is on the skittish side but has no problem at Jean's. I think he misses the other dogs when he comes home too.
Jean is great...she treats your dog just like her own. She made our Buster feel comfortable on his first stay away from home. Feeling very confident with leaving him with her for 10 days while we are on vacation!
My dog Brody loved Jean, he took to her right away. She was patient and caring with him. He barked and scratched at the gate most of the first night because he's used to sleeping in our bed and Jean was ok with him spending the 2nd night at her house as well. He did do some territorial marking so she suggested we get a belly band for his next visit. Jean is very loving & caring with her dogs and I would be happy to have Brody stay there anytime. She even cooks them chicken & carrots!
Jean is a great host. She makes all the pets feel welcome in her lovely home.
Jean was great with our little Shitzu, I would recommend to use Jean as your sitter. She is very friendly as well as professional. I am definitely using her again.
I can not say enough good things about Jeannie! I've left our dog, Lucky, with her on numerous occasions. She has gone above and beyond our expectations. She has done her best to work us in last minute, when needed, and has been flexible when, on occasion, our flight has been late into SF. She has a beautiful, immaculate home with a nice back yard. It's a perfect set-up for keeping dogs. Lucky loves being there and is always so excited when we get out of the car and he realizes we are at her house. The first time we left him as a pup, she let him sleep on her bed with her. Probably the best thing about Jeannie is she seems to really love not only the dogs, but meeting new people. She's such a sweet lady. I can confidently recommend her.
Jean was great. She went the extra mile for Pixie. Pixie is a people person and when in a place she is not sure of wants to be with you..needless to say jean let her stay with her all the time. Thanks
Jean has a lovely home with a large backyard. She is a caring and kind host.
We absolutely love Jean. She is awesome with our two dogs and they always have a great time when they stay with her. She sends texts with pics of our dogs daily which is very nice
Jean eased my tension by sending me photos of my babies. I appreciate the fact that she was accommodating as far as pick up time goes. Thank you so much! I would use her services again.
I just don't know where to start! My doggie's stay with Jean surpassed my expectations. She is very personable and kind. Jean has a real compassion and understanding for dogs.

Jean is like a a dog whisper. I informed her that my puppy exhibited some confusion with basic commands. When I returned to pick my puppy up, it was as if I had a new dog. Not only did Jean clear up my dog's confusion but she improved her over all demeanor. My dog had never been socialized with other dogs. Jean helped my puppy with that transition with gentle understanding.

Thank you so much "DogVacay" for having Jean on your staff. She's quite an asset!
Dino's stay was awesome Jean sent me a couple of pic updates and although I was nervous to leave Dino for the first time Jean made me feel at ease. Everything about her, her house and the love and care she provides was exceptional. I actually was relaxed and enjoyed my day away knowing he was in the best care possible. Jean is a wonderful kind dog loving and caring person and Dino will defenitely be staying there when I am in need of a sitter. Thank you Jean from the bottom of mine and Dino's hearts you are awesome!!
I can't sing enough praises of Jean and my great experience leaving my little dog Dino with her. Jean's home was beautiful and completely set up for dog boarding, from inside to the screened patio, to the large yard. I felt that Jean loves dogs as much as I love my dog and she made me feel safe with leaving my dog in her hands.
This was a great place to leave our doggie. We arrived late, but Jean was very nice. Her home was clean and welcoming. Katie was well taken care of! Thank you so much!
This is the first time we boarded our dog. We were a bit apprehensive but Jean was great and quickly eased our concern. Her house is set up to help the dog be very comfortable and her friendly dogs were great playmates for our dog.

We will definitely have our dog stay with Jean again.
So glad I found Jean to watch my pup, Jax! It was such short notice, I had only contacted her the night before I dropped him off, but she had no problem. Jean was extremely caring and loving towards Jax as if he were her own. She sent me picture updates while on my short vacation in Los Angeles, making my trip away from my furry kid that much easier. I love that she has many other small dogs of her own since my Jax is pretty timid with new dogs and not used to big dogs too much. Within the first 5 minutes of dropping him off, he was already running off with his new best friend. When I came to pick him up 2 days later, he was so full of energy and wagging his tail, introducing me to his new friends. He went right to bed when we got home, which is a sign he had a BLAST. I would recommend Jean in a heartbeat. She's a sweetheart that truly loves dogs. I will be calling her to care for Jax on my next vacation!
This was the first time that we used a sitter for our puppy, Maddie. Maddie was nervous at first, but Jean was patient, understanding and showed Maddie that she really cared. Maddie had a great time and it seemed as if she didn't want to leave Jean's home when we came by to picked her up 3 days later. Outstanding job by Jean. I would recommend her to anyone 100% of the time.
I used Jean M for my dog Mylo for New Years Eve 2014. First of all, he felt very welcome in her beautiful home. It was a great environment for my little rescue dog because she has dogs of her own. I was worried that he might have a hard time staying overnight, but she sent me pictures of him having a great time, so I relaxed and had a great time myself. I highly recommend Jean M and will use her again and again. She made sure Mylo rang in the new year fabulously!
Jeannie was great! She was very patient and accomodating to us and our dog Teddy. I feel very lucky to have found her. She even sent us pictures of Teddy while we where away. Thank you Jeannie for your kindness.:-)
I can't recommend Jean enough, she's so incredibly loving, fun and welcoming with dogs. My dog Kyle looks forward to the time he gets to spend at her house and his doggie friends there. She has a great setup for the dogs to run and play inside and out and at night they get to cuddle up in her room, which I love because Kyle is pretty much our little kid and would hate to be separated from the pack. She always sends me text updates of him having a blast and lets me know how he's eating and fitting in (just like a kid!). If you're looking for someone to take care of your "kids", I would highly recommend Jean.
Jean is really great with Hershey. She treats him like her own dogs. During our vacation, Jean sent us some pictures showing us what a good time Hershey is having. It made us feel more comfortable leaving him with her. Hershey came home very well fed and happy to see us. I would leave Hershey with Jean on our next vacation.
Jeannie is a sweetheart. She took care of my Duke like one of her own. Even though my Duke is a handful she still found the way to entertain him. I can not thank her enough. She truly is an amazing pet sitter. She kept me updated daily as to how my Duke was doing by sending me pictures and text messages.
Jean is very calm and caring. She enjoys the dogs in her care and they obviously enjoy being at her house. Our dog runs to the door and stands there wagging his tail. Happy to go play with his friends and doesn't give us a backward glance.
Our dog, Coco, loves going to Jean M's house! I can't thank Jean enough for making it possible for me to go out of town with the assurance that Coco is happy.
She's fantastic with my dogs. Treats them like her own. Really cares about their well being. Does what she can to keep them happy. Especially with my dog Nikkie who is pretty shy.
DEFINITELY.... LITTLE DOGS PARADISE!!!. My 3 little babies don't do anything but tell me how awesome it was to spend the weekend at Jean's. Two of my little dogs are survivors of really horrible dog attacks (one of them has been attacked 3 times actually and miraculously survived). Because of this reason I can not trust anybody to even walk my dogs. But I knew, the moment I met Jean that my dogs would be safe in her house since she only boards little dogs. All 3 of my dogs are special needs doggies and require special diet, medication and special care. Jean was very dedicated, loving and patient with all of them!. Thank you Jean!
Jean has a special knack with dogs. Smiley had a great time at her house and I have pictures to prove it! Jean sent me an update the first night so I could enjoy my vacation guilt-free.
I was in town for the weekend from San Diego and needed my dog Gizmo watched for the day. Gizmo is a 5 ear old blind pug and he is very reserved and timid. Jean treated him with the utmost care and when I picked him up he was extremely happy and playful with all of the other dogs around. I thought Jean did an awesome job and will definitely be contacting her the next time I visit Tracy and need someone to watch over my most precious friend Gizmo.
Jean is WONDERFUL! She is absolutely the best with our 2 maltipoos Dominick & Izzy. Not only does she treat them as one of her own, she sends us pictures of them while we are away and even lets them sleep in her bed! We treat our pups like our children and it is such a relief to be able to go away and leave them with someone who cares as much as we do. Thanks so much Jean (Jim too)! They'll be back to visit soon.
Jean is an awesome sitter, our dogs come back happy and very content.
We couldn't have been happier with our dog's first stay with Jean. He came home clean and happy. She truly loves dogs and her home is a wonderful place to leave yours. She kept us up to date with pictures and text messages while we were gone. We will definitely use her again!
Jean M was the perfect host for my dog, Coco. Our dog really enjoyed playing with other pups in residence. She is usually shy with strangers, but Jean said Coco was happy and lively with everyone she met. It was a relief to know that Coco was having a great doggie vacation! I knew she was in good hands, so I could relax and enjoy our trip away from home. Thank you, Jean! Thank you DogVacay!

Our Fur babies had their first home away from home. Jean you are awesome and I could tell from the minute we walked in the door our babies felt like they were home.. They were happy to see us, but didnt run to the door to go home instead while jean was getting the puppies things together Saddie was following Jean up and down the stairs... Sophie and Sadie will be back in Dec. I hope they were as good as jean said they were... Sophie keeps looking for the birds.... Hopefully she wasnt a pest to the poor birdies... Thanks again Jean your an awesome Bonus Mom for our babies!!!!
Thanks again,
Steve & Danni
With last minute reservation, Jean was absolutely wonderful in willing to let us drop off our little pup so late. He had a wonderful time with her and the dogs. Thank you again for taking him on short notice!
Jean was so sweet to Lolli! She went over and beyond to make Lolli feel comfortable being left in her home, and her dogs are so low key and accepting. Lolli did not want to leave!
Elvis stayed with Jean for a week and a half while we were in Cancun. She was just wonderful! We know Elvis could be a handful at times, so we really appreciated that Jean treated Elvis like one of her own. She emailed us pictures of Elvis throughout our trip and it looked like he was having a great time with her dogs!! Would definitely recommend Jean to everyone! We would love if Jean would watch Elvis again as we know he is well taken care of and safe in her home :)
Jeannie seamed to work well with us. Both of our Tibetan Terriers seamed to have a fun time! We will definitely use her again in the near future!
Cali's stay at Jean's was terrific. She loved every minute she was there, Jean was wonderful, as usual!
Last minute I needed someone to watch our two doggies for a long weekend, as our pre-arranged dog-sitter didn't work out and we had to drive to LA that night to be at a wedding the next morning. It was stressful enough trying to work out details for the trip.. and I had 23-hour day that day. Jean was really kind about it all and, even though it was all last minute, said she would take them in that night for the weekend. Now, our older dog can be somewhat of a diva and do things like refuse to eat when we aren't around, but she seemed to do fine in the company of Jean and her dogs and Jean was kind enough to send us pictures throughout our trip to let us know how both of our dogs were doing. We definitely would be delighted if Jean would be able to watch our dogs the next time we are away as we know they would be safe, loved, and well taken care of.
Jean was wonderful. My puppies came back to me happy and healthy. Jean texted me pics of my snuggling pooches while I was out of town so I could feel reassured that they were in capable hands. I'm sure they loved playing with 4 other dogs the whole weekend. I'm pretty sure my dogs loved their vacation as much as I loved mine. Will definately call on Jean again and highly recommend her to my dog-loving friends. Have already done it actually. Thanks Jean!
Jean always send pics to let me know me Jordan is ok.Jean is really sweet and I highly recommend her her she also gave her a bath last time my dog was their Im really glad I found her. Thank you again jean
I have taken my dog here a couple times she loves it. Jean is a great with the dogs and treats them all like family. I would highly recommend her I'm glad I found her and will continue to take my dog there.
Bentley, my 10 week old Boxer was given awesome treatment by Jean. During our meet and greet, Jean was very professional and showed great interest in Bentley. I knew from that day that he would be treated well in her home. Jean's home is immaculate - (inside & out). Her dogs are very well mannered. During Bentley's stay, Jean sent me pictures to ensure that he was in good hands. I would highly recommend Jean to other dog owners. I was very satisfied with Jean's services and her love for dogs.
Jean's attention to my Chloe's needs warmed my heart. She blended our corgi into her pet family from the moment we stepped through the door. She has space for dogs to play and run about and I left for my out-of-town trip feeling that Chloe had friends to keep her occupied. We received a periodic update and photos and Jean was wonderful!
Jean took care of our dog, Pinky, for 2 weeks. It was great and a true blessing that we knew Pinky was in good hands while we were away.

Jean's house is large, clean, and safe. She has 4 lovely and friendly dogs of her own and for Pinky, it was like going to summer camp. In fact, Pinky looked a bit depressed now that she's home - I think she missed her new friends and all the fun at Jean's house.
My dog loved her time at Jean's house. Jean treated her like one of the family, letting my dog Cali have the run of her house and yard, and even letting Cali sleep on Jean's bed at night! Jean's little dogs were great playmates and I could tell that Cali really didn't want to leave to go home. Jean even gave Cali a bath and clipped her nails. I can't say was such a blessing knowing Cali was safe and pampered and happy while we were on our trip.
Bailey sure enjoyed his stay with Jean and her dogs. Jean is a dog loving and responsive person and I glad to have her taking care of Bailey while I am away.
