About Joel

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are located in the Rogers Park neighborhood just a couple blocks away from Lake Michigan and it's great beaches and walking trails. My name is Joel, and my partners name is Adam. We come as a pair to insure that your pets are loved and cared for while in our care. Adam and I have two little guys of our own as well to keep your loved one company during their visit. Their profiles are linked below so you can get to know them. We do provide boarding service inside our home but require a meet and greet prior so both parties can get to know each other. We always have had positive interaction with dogs and never have we had a dog not feel comfortable in our presence. Both Adam and I have had dogs in our homes our whole lives. We absolutely love dogs and couldn't imagine our lives without them. Our boys have both been raised to be social and playful with dogs of all sizes and breeds. We do understand a problem can arise which is the purpose of a prior meet and greet to insure your pet feels comfortable with us. It is within our best interest that your pet has the best experience possible when in our care. If for any reason we see during this meeting that we can't go forward with boarding your pet within our home we will do our best to come up with a solution for you and your pet.

Another service we offer is boarding within the dog owners home. This is a great solution for dogs that are not comfortable being boarded outside their home. We can go as far as complete supervision in which one of us can stay overnight at your home with your pet to care for them. This service has a flat daily rate, but we can work with you on customizing a service that fits your needs as well. Just ask and we will see.

For dogs that do not require complete supervision we can figure out a customized rate in which we provide daily visits to your home. This is the service that we use whenever we leave town and need our guys looked after. For each day that you need care for your pet we can provide daily visits to your home. Usually 2-3 visits each day, one in the morning, one in the afternoon and again at night. Pending on how many visits needed each day would determine the length of the visit. Visits would provide feeding, potty break, walks and play time with us and your pet. This works best for owners with multiple pets needing care as well as older more mature pets. Would not recommend for puppy's or dogs that are not house broken.. We can work with you on coming up with a custom quote for this service pending on how many visits per day, pet count, distance from my home, length of each visit and duration of service provided

Other services we can provide include dog walks, walk multiple dogs at once or can do solo walks as needed. Home visits can be provided daily as well as overnight visits at the rates provided. We are available 7 days a week and most holidays. See below for holiday reservation info.

I will be available for both Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday. Please message for custom pricing and services available for these holiday weekends. Holidays tend to be busier than most for people are traveling out of town and need somebody to care for their loved ones. Overnight boarding tends to book up rather quickly on these dates so act fast. Other options that I can provide if boarding is not available are daily house visits multiple times a day to walk, play and feed your pet. i can provide you with a customized price quote that is reasonable to accommodate you and your pet.

Wow! I've used Dog Vacay one other time and Joel far exceeded my expectations. He stayed at my place for the weekend and I came back to a very happy and relaxed puppy and, on top of it, my place was in better order than when I left! He sent me a couple of pictures while I was away that I could've never done myself and will not frame. Overall, Joel was great, communicative, cared for my dog and made me feel at ease being away. I've already booked him again for the holidays!

Joel did a great job with Terra! He was very communicative and flexible, and Terra clearly had a great day with him. Highly recommended host!
