Thanks so much for taking great care of our rescue dog while we were out of town. It was his first stay at a new place and had so much fun. I also loved the video updates making me feel more comfortable leaving him too... He will be coming back for another stay soon.

Molly and Bella had a great stay with Jessica! They have so much fun playing with Jessica and the other doggie guests. I feel completely comfortable leaving our pups with her and know they are in good hands. I will absolutely use her again to take care of our fur babies.

Abby seemed to enjoy her week and looks forward to returning in the future.
Spoiled. Our dog came back spoiled! Who could ask for more? We felt extreme peace of mind knowing our dog was in a loving environment. We'll be back!
Always a perfect stay for our pup:) he can't wait to go back to Jessica's house to play & stay. See ya soon
Jessica A. Is an awesome pet sitter. We have a 13 year old cocker spaniel who fit right into the group. She takes 2 medications and soft food only. All her needs were beautifully accommodateded as were mine.!any time I wanted to check on her progress, Jessica sent me a quick, cute video of all the dogs getting along. High praise for Jessica and her dedication to the animals.

We love Jessica and how great she is with our dog- we hope to keep using her services for a long time!
Jessica was able to administer the eye drops needed by Riley. She was quick to respond to our request for a meet and greet.
Jessica has watched our dog, Luna, twice for us when we have gone out of town. We had a meet and greet before the first stay and it was apparent that Jessica is familiar with dog care and loves what she does.Luna is always very happy and tired when we pick her up. After the last stay, she didn't want to leave! We also enjoyed receiving a video of our dog hanging out and playing. We are very happy with Jessica and highly recommend her!

The best place for our chipper to stay while were away or if we just want him to get some play time with other dog friends:)
Just wonderful everytime:) my chipper loves it at Jess's home
Jessica was very accommodating with drop off and pick up times. We ended up picking up our dog one day early and she even went out of her way to credit our account. We will definitely use Jessica again.
Jessica really knows dogs. She introduced my dog to the other dogs seamlessly and has a great setup for doggie day and overnight care.

My friend recommended her for my dog and I am glad she did. My dog seemed quite happy there and I liked how Jessica shared a video with me of his stay. I recommend her and would use her services again.

We needed someone we could trust to watch our four small dogs, one of which was just a 9 week old puppy. Jessica was not only accommodating and professional, but her home has been modified so she can dedicate her time and attention to caring for the pups. She sent us vids to keep us updated while we were gone. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for boarding or daycare!

Jessica has a great setup. Has devoted the entire place to taking care of dogs. We were very impressed and our two dogs walked out with smiles on their faces. That's all you really need to know.
By far the best place we've ever taken our dog chipper, Jessica is fantastic & he comes home happy & he can wait to go back:)
Our little guys love Jessica. She has done a series of home visits to feed and walk them and I am thrilled to have found her!
My dogs love staying with Jessica. We love her flexible pick up/drop off times and availability and price. I feel confident that my dogs will have a fun, safe visit with her every stay.
I felt very comfortable leaving my older dog, Emmie, with Jessica for an entire week! Jessica sent pictures and video of Emmie hanging with the other dogs. I'm not sure Emmie wanted to come home! I definitely won't be using a kennel after the pet vacay experience. The dogs were able to move about the house or in the fenced yard as they liked.

Jessica CAN definitely handle big dogs by the group!
She can assess them at a snap and can tell if the dog will be able to get along with the pack or not. I know my german shepherd is safe under her care. My dog is definitely going back for a 9-day long vacation with Jessica & the other dogs in her care this weekend!
Also, her backyard & home is very clean, even when she allows each and every dog to run all around the place. We didn't smell any unpleasant odors anywhere in the house and backyard despite the number of dogs playing around. It's a lot of work to care for so many big and small dogs at the same time and yet her place smells clean. This tells us that she keeps the surrounding clean and sanitary at all times. That equates to a safe environment for our dog.

The best place for our dog chipper, always comes home happy and well taken care of:)
This was the first time we used a pet sitter. The videos showing how the dogs are doing are really reassuring. We can tell the dogs were comfortable and taken well care of. We would use Jessica again.
I was very happy with Jessica. She sent me a couple of doggie videos during his stay, and my pooch seemed very happy upon my return. I would absolutely use her again!
Boulder always enjoys his stay here!!!
It was the first time our dog stayed anywhere. Jessica took great care of him. We really liked how how we were updated with texts.
the best place for our dog Chipper to stay, he loves it!!
always awesome for our dog:)
Jessica is great with our little guys. We needed a home visit and she handled everything perfectly. Highly recommend.
This was our first time with this type of dog care vs kennel. It was the best I've seen. Owen was a little nervous at the meet-n-greet and the number of housemates was a little overwhelming. But I'm told he fit right in with the pack when we dropped him off. Jessica does a great job with each dog. Owen got a lot of attention. The home environment is such a nice atmosphere. We were welcome to check things out and feel comfortable. I will definitely use Jessica again.

Perfect as always:) see ya soon
Jessica offered a warm and caring home for our aging Lab. Our first time boarding Beau was a positive experience all around. Jessica is flexible, knowledgeable and confident in working with dogs.
We appreciate having a home away from home for Beau!

Jessica is so kind and caring of our Buffy. We are so glad we found her.
This was the first time Stella went to a day care. Jess paid that little extra bit of attention that Stella needed to help fit in. Great job Jess, thanks!
We feel comfortable taking our dogs to visit Jessica. Our older dog gave Jessica a kiss goodbye after I picked them up so I knew they had a good time. Both dogs came back very tired which is a blessing so we had time to recover before getting back into our routine. We will be back to visit Jessica again :)

Our dog Boulder has so much fun here! :)
Originally I had a hard time finding a sitter for Zoey. However when I found Jessica I knew it was the perfect place. Soon as we got there Zoey ran off to start her vacation. Jessica was really nice and Zoey loved being with her. I left Zoey here for about a week. I can tell she really enjoyed herself. She got along with all the dogs and was treated with love and care. I was updated with pictures and videos daily. Jessica was great and very affordable. I'm so glad we found her we will definitely use her again in the future.

the best place to bring your beloved dog:) Our Chipper is always happy & can't wait to go back
This was the second time our dog, Cooper, has stayed with Jessica. He remembered her and was so excited to see her again. Jessica sent us a video and pictures while we were gone, and it was very reassuring knowing Cooper was happy and having a great time! We highly recommend Jessica! You can tell how much she loves dogs and they certainly love her in return!

This is Chipper favorite place to be:) always a great time for him:) see ya soon
I was very happy with Jessica. Reba loved her and I'll certainly make bring my pooch back. Highly recommended!!
We have always been very happy with the care Jessica provides for our pups. They both get very excited when we pull up to her house and come home happy, healthy, and tired.
Jessica was great with my dogs! I will definitely bring them back again!
Jessica was great!! She was flexible in pick up/drop off times and communication was great! We received so many pics and videos of our dogs. I recommend her to anyone looking for a great sitter/boarder!
The best place for our Chipper to stay:) Awesome!!
Always awesome!! Chipper is a happy dog with jess
Moof had a great stay with Jessica. He is a 13 and 1/2 year old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and I was very concerned about leaving him for 11 days. When he came home he was relaxed and did not have to sleep all day or show another signs of being too physically or emotionally stressed. I absolutely will use Jessica again for babysitting my baby! And, getting pictures of him on vacation was just great!

Bella always has a good time and lots of cuddle time.
Jessica is absolutely wonderful and treated my dog as if she were her own. I highly recommend her and have already booked Ginger's next stay.
Jessica was great! Bear and Sarge had a great weekend stay. Thank you!
Jessica knew how to make our doggies feel comfortable in her home, like they found a second family when their own was away. Getting videos of our pups fitting in was comforting for all of us when we were away from them too.
Always perfect!! thanks a bunch & chipper will see ya soon
as always Chipper had a marvelous time:) see ya soon!!
Our pup had a great stay here and we will be using Jessica again! :)
She's great. I'm always a little nervous leaving my little guys (7 & 8 lbs) where there are big dogs but they do fine once mom is gone (lol).
She texts me videos so I can see them. She is very comfortable with dogs and you see that she genuinely cares for them.

Jessica really loves dogs, she has everything setup in her home to provide a safe and comfy place for your dog to stay. She sent us videos and pictures of our dog, Indy, while we were away. He had the usual glance at the doorway at first, but once he realized he was surrounded by a bunch of new canine friends, he looked like he was having a blast! The pictures Jessica sent really helped me enjoy my vacation knowing he was well taken care of and not locked in a cage. We will definitely ask Jessica to watch Indy in the future! Thank you, Jessica.

Marty and Victorina both really enjoyed their stay with Jessica. Marty gets extremely excited whenever we pull on to her street. I'm very happy with the service Jessica provides and highly recommend it.
chipper is always so happy to go play & stay with Jess & the doggies:) thanks a bunch & see ya soon
My dogs love it there. Wouldn't go anywhere else. She's great
It was our first time using DogVacay, and we were very pleased with the whole experience. Jessica has a genuine love for these furry friends. She sent a video and pictures, which was nice since Piper tends to be nervous and anxious. They dogs must have had a great time they slept the entire next day in the car as we headed to Florida.
Read More...
Jessica was so awesome for our Riley! Our dog is very nervous around new people and has significant separation anxiety. Jessica catered to Riley's needs perfectly, and sent us pictures every day that showed his tail up and that he was happy! We will absolutely use her services again, she really put us at ease having to leave our dog for so long. Thanks again Jessica!

Great as usual! Marty is excited to be at Jessica's and exhausted when he gets home.
Chipper always has the best time:) He's a happy dog at Jessica's
We were so happy with Jessica's care of our 2 westies. She was so caring and our dogs came home so much happier then when we kennel them and she's right in the neighborhood! We highly recommend her and look forward to using her in the future for our dogs.

It's never easy leaving your pet in the care of total strangers, but we had little choice. Our experience with Jessica was terrific. Very outgoing. Received updates from Jessica via phone messages. Would recommend a return visit for next years vacation.
Thanks for your caring for Charlie the way we would. Very professional.

Awesome - as always :-) Thank you Jessica for taking care of our giant Zenek! U R the Best!
A perfect experience. No complaints at all.
My 12 year-old Welsh Pembroke Corgi Maggie seemed to have a very good time. I would definitely recommend Jessica for her courteous personality, fast response time to any & all questions, reasonable rates and accommodations. Very good! :)

Jessica was awesome with my 2 pups -- as usual. They enjoyed all the playtime with her other guests!
Always a wonderful experience for my dog chipper:) see ya soon
This was our dog's first visit to Saint's Alive. She enjoyed her restful visit and I most appreciated the photos that I received throughout the day. I will use Jessica's service in the future as the need arises. Rosemary
We left our two dogs with Jessica for 12 days in June 2015. Before we found Jessica, we had always put the dogs in a kennel for vacations (which we and the dogs never really liked). We chose Jessica because of her high energy, kind spirit and her love of dogs. We could just tell in that initial meeting that she adored dogs and would treat them like they were her own.

She sent us pictures every couple of days and told us how much fun our dogs were having. We really appreciated the pictures and emails.

When we picked them they were so tuckered out from all the fun they had playing with their new friends. We will definitely leave our two puppies with her again!

Marty really likes visiting Jessica. We feel really comfortable leaving him there. I'm very glad we found her.
Once again, my experience leaving Sage with Jessica was simply great! It is such a comfort to know you can leave your pet in the hands of someone you can trust and know they care as much as you do about your "loved" one!! Sage is always happy to go for visits! I have recommended Jessica to several of my friends.

Outstanding care of our dog. We're moving and will very much miss Jessica.
Great experience for our dog Scout. She had a wonderful time and Jessica and family just love all the dogs they care for.
Chipper loves staying with Jessica, he comes home happy & we have a great trip knowing he's in good hands. see ya soon:)
Once again, thanks so much for taking such good care of Sage!!! It is so comforting to know your pet is in such good hands....and I know she loves you guys so much!! She's looking forward to her next vacation with you!! :)
My dog came home happy and exhausted. Scheduling was a breeze and we are overall very happy with the experience.
Jessica always does an excellent job with my 2 "babies" and they love spending time with her! She is very accommodating to our schedule and we are extremely grateful for this! We also really appreciate the texts and pictures!
We are sooo happy we've found this awesome place for our giant German Shepard :) Thank you Jessica for all your help!
My dog Chipper loves it at Jessica's house & he cant wait to go back. Perfect every time:) thanks so much
We picked up our dog from his first stay with Jessica and he is soooo tired (yes!!!). Jessica is a true professional... I am so glad we found her.
Chipper had an awesome time:) thank you so much & see ya soon A++++++
Jessica is absolutely the best! We left our 1 year old French Mastiff with her for the first time this past week! Jessica cares so much about the dogs she takes care of and is so knowledgeable! We are so happy Bailey has a second home! Thank you Jessica, you are truly a gem and we are lucky we found you!

This was our first time using Jessica and we chose her based on the reviews from her past reviews. They were not lying!!! Our Lana is a very energetic pup and she had plenty to do at her home. We got pictures daily and updates as well. Lana will definitely be coming back, even if it's only for an afternoon!

I was very stressed out about leaving my little one-year old alone, for the very first time, for a full week. He had never slept anywhere but home and always next to someone familiar. Needless to say, I was a wreck, and mostly concerned with him being so scared and not knowing what was going to happen. After I met Jessica, I felt a bazillion times better, I felt such relief and assurance that my little guy was going to be cared for 24/7, have his days filled with playing with other dogs, and his nights in the comfort of a home, not a kennel, getting the attention of a super nice family. It was still totally hard to leave him, but the daily videos, texts and pictures were a GODSEND! Even when I asked for more, Jessica responded within minutes and I could see with my own eyes my little guy was having fun. I absolutely looked forward to them everyday. I could tell too when we got home that he had a great time. He acted completely normal, happy and content and went right back to his normal routine without a problem. This told me that he was not stressed out and meant the world to me. I will not hesitate for a minute to take my dog back to Jessica for daycare, or, for when we go on another vacation. I cannot believe how nice it feels to have found someone I trust to take care of my baby for an extended period of time. The peace of mind Jessica provided was immeasurable. Thank you so so much!

Always a wonderful time for my dog Chipper, he loves meeting new budies & playing. Jessica is 100% the best place for me to take my dog.
Shadow was happy and frisky when I came to pick him up, and slept well that night so I know he had a good time and got some good exercise while he was at Saint's Alive. I look forward to boarding him there again in the future.
Mazzy had another great vacation, and we enjoyed receiving pictures and even videos of her while we were gone. She apparently was born to be a member of a pack!
Rudy slept pretty much all day first day back home. That tells us he had a pretty good time!
Our girl Tallulah loves going to stay with Jessica! She gets so excited when seeing Jessica and I know she is loved when I'm gone. Thank you Jessica for being such a sweetheart!!!
Mazzy was a happy camper, as usual. We can't imagine leaving her anywhere else.
My dogs had an excellent time with Jessica, as always! I know they are loved and get personal attention, and the photos and videos are very much appreciated!
My dog Chipper always has a great time:) thanks so much & see ya soon.
I have nothing but good things to say about Jessica as a doggie caregiver! Hailey, my 13-year-old Beagle has stayed there twice and felt very much at home. Jessica is a joy and truly cares about the dogs in her care. Hailey adjusted well to her calm and loving demeanor.

Jessica was wonderful to work with. My boxer mix Rudy warmed up to her and her home immediately. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a safe and happy place for their furry friend to stay!
It's wonderful to leave my dogs with Jessica knowing that I don't have to worry about them. Ozzie & Zoey had a great time!
Everything was perfect! I was very comfortable leaving Charlie for the 1st time ever at a strange place. Jessica was wonderful! The fact that he was able to be in a comfortable home with hosts that know all about dog care was very reassuring. I'm sure Charlie had fun with all the other dogs as well.
Now I know when I leave him there in the future, he will be familiar with Jessica and her home and he will be that much more comfortable.
Read More...
always a wonderful stay for chipper:) thank you so much
I should be a little offended at how excited Mazzy gets when she sees Jessica (and Twister) and happily trots off to the back yard without giving us even a backward glance. But, it actually is a good thing and I know she's always in very good hands.
Thanks so much for watching Frodo and Luna again! It's always a great comfort to know they are in such good hands while we were are on vacation! We also very much enjoy the photo/video/text updates!

Jessica always does an excellent job with my 2 "kids" and this visit was no exception! We also love the pictures and videos!
Jessica is AWESOME!! Frankie loved his vacay with the rest of the crew there. Will definitely use again!
Our pups had a fantastic time at Jessica's! Her home was welcoming and our dogs felt comfortable right away. Jessica was great with them and we recieved wonderful photo's each day!

We've found Hoosier and Crimson's new home when we're away from home!

Zeus' second visit with Jessica. He couldn't wait to go back. Thanks Jessica!
Jessica was awesome!! Zeus can't wait to go back.

It's a great feeling to leave your dogs and not worry one bit about them while you are gone. Jessica is terrific with them!
Great, as always!
A perfect place to leave your dog and know they will be well cared for and loved.
rudy looked happy to be there. looks like the visit was fine
chipper had a wonderful time as always:) thank you so much!! see ya soon
As usual, Mazzy had a great time and is resting up from all the fun she obviously had while she was at Jessica's. The photos we received during her stay say it all.
Kane seemed very happy. Jessica was great as always. Really enjoys having Kane which makes us feel better about leaving him behind.
I feel very comfortable leaving my girl Tallulah with Jessica. I know by Tallulah's excitement when she greets Jessica, that she loves her and loves going there!

Jessica has also helped Tallulah socialize with other dogs successfully. Which I am grateful to her for that!!

Another great stay for Kane with Jessica. He enjoyed playing with the other dogs and Jessica is so nice and really makes you feel comfortable about leaving your dog in her care.
We have been taking our dog, Bella, to stay with Jessica and Ken for about 2 years. She likes to go there and seems to have lots of fun. I like that Jessica sends me pictures and updates.
Jessica is wonderful! Tia Maria enjoyed her stay so much and do to the fact that she played and played, she came home and took a very long nap! When my husband said he was getting something out of the car, she jumped up and was ready to get back in and go. (she hates the car!!!) We are already planning our next trip and "who will take the dog" is no longer a problem for us! Jessica will take the dog!! ;-)

Once again, my doggies had a blast at Jessica's. They get so excited when we turn onto her street, they know exactly where we are. Not only that, this time around we had to unexpectedly lengthen our trip & Jessica was happy to accommodate them for the extra time. She even went & bought more food for them. She's awesome & just goes above & beyond. Highly, highly, highly recommend.

Ozzie & Zoey clearly loved their stay - lots of loving care, yard to play in with other dogs! I felt very comfortable leaving them with Jessica and appreciated the emailed picture updates while we were gone. Highly recommend her!
Jessica was very welcoming and sent pictures to let us know how he was doing. Kane enjoyed having the outdoor space and other dogs to play with. Thank you Jessica for taking good care of Kane
Our dog Chipper loves going to Jessica & Ken's house:) he comes home a happy camper. Thanks so much & see ya soon:)
Excellent care of Mazzy as always ... thanks so much!
It was great to to get Bubba pics emailed to us while we were gone. He clearly had fun running with the big dogs! Jessica takes great care introducing newbies to the pack; she spends time to check out every dog's behavior toward the others. Her home is spotless--better than mine!

I know Bubba had a great time because he was not anxious to leave. He was more "Hi, how are ya, can I stay here more?"

We'll be back!

Jessica & ken are the best, we are so happy to have found them to watch our dog chipper:)
always a perfect stay for our dog Chipper:)
Jessica was awesome again. NALA always has fun visiting.
It's so nice to feel good about dropping off our dog to be "boarded," even though at Jessica's it's not at all like boarding. It really is like a vacation for Mazzy; it's obvious she loves it there. Thanks, as always!
Jessica kept my dogs for a few days while we had some remodeling done in our house. She did a great job as always and it was nice to know they were being taken care of just like as if there were back home!
Jessica was AMAZING! I don't know how she does it with all the dogs there but the whole house is spotless, it doesn't smell like dogs, the yard is clean, it's immaculate. Not only is the environment awesome, but she is a true dog lover & it shows. We left our baby there for the first time & I was very apprehensive as we had never left him anywhere before & he can get grumpy. She did everything in her power to allay my concerns, even when I emailed her lots of times with questions. She kept in touch, sent videos & pictures. Eli was so happy to be there & you could tell that he felt right at home. He even slept under her bed. Twister is a sweetheart & a wonderful tour guide. You don't have to bring bowls or toys, she's got everything there. She really knows how to handle dogs from introductions to proper pup etiquette, not something you find everyday. I highly highly recommend her. I'm actually looking forward to the next time we go out of town because I know I won't have to worry about my baby.

Jessica is terrific with Simba who loves having a home away from home when we travel.
Simba had a great time! Jessica is just fantastic.
Jessica is just fantastic! It is great to have a home away from home for Simba when we travel.
Another great stay. Jessica sent us lots of pictures of the dogs having fun. Never have to worry about them. She takes very good care of both of them.
Thanks again, Jessica, for taking such good care of Frodo and Luna! We always feel so comfortable traveling knowing they are in such great hands! Plus, it's always awesome to see pictures and videos of them playing with their new friends!
Always awesome:) Chipper comes home happy & rested from all the fun play time. we'll see you soon, thanks a bunch
Rudy came home happy. We had a good trip knowing he was well cared for.
Jessica was wonderful and our dogs absolutely had a great stay. We'll definitely use Jessica again !
This was the first time I have used DogVacay...or any type of home sitting for my dog, so I was a bit
anxious whether this would work out well. It turns out I had absolutely nothing to worry about!! Sage was treated with such love and care. Jessica was so kind to send numerous photos every day or so and would respond almost instantly whenever I would send a text to just check in on Sage. It is such a comfort to know your dog is being cared for and loved....it enabled me to relax and have a worry-free vacation. And Sage has made several new dog friends as well! I would recommend Jessica to anyone....she has years of experience caring for dogs. More importantly, you know she truly loves animals....a special gift! I look forward to Sage staying over for another vacation!

As usual, Mazzy came home tired and happy. Thank you, Jessica (and Ken) for taking such good care of her! All of the photographs you sent were wonderful and let us know that she was having fun.
Jessica always does a great job with my dogs. They always run right in her house and make themselves at home and this time was no exception. One of my dogs got sick at the end of her stay and Jessica informed me right away and took great care of her until I could come pick her up. I would highly recommend Jessica to everyone.

Always a perfect stay for our Husky Chipper:) thank you so much. see you guys soon
This is the second time I have left my dogs with Jessica and I couldn't be happier with her care. My dogs make themselves right at home as soon as I drop them off and they come back to me exhausted - read - had a great time! I mentioned I was a little concerned about one of my dogs not eating and she did a great job monitoring her food intake. I also love the pictures to see what they are up to!

Once again our little pug had a fantastic time at Jessica's. I think Mazzy was even a little disappointed when we showed up to take her back home! It's great to know that we're boarding our dog at a place where she has fun and they take such good care of her. And the photo updates are a wonderful touch!

Rudy had a great time and so did we knowing he was in good hands.
Jessica and her husband are great with our dog, Bella. Bella is never afraid to go over to their house. Jessica also sends me pictures and updates about her stay. You can tell that they love animals.
Chipper always is so happy to stay with Jessica & ken. And he comes home rested & happy:) thanks so much. see ya soon
Jessica is amazing! She cares for our pups like they are her own! Jessica sent us updates, photos and videos via text message, which were very much appreciated! I know our dogs are safe and loved there, and they come home tired, calm and happy! This was our third time leaving our dogs with Jessica and we will definitely use her services again in the future!

Once again Jessica (and Ken) took wonderful care of our pug, who seemed to enjoy her vacation as much as we did ours. She got to play with other dogs but still got all the attention she demanded. And, we got lots of photos of her while we were gone. It doesn't get any better than that!

always awesome! thank you so much for watching chipper:) he had a wonderful time. see ya soon
Another great stay for our dogs. They had a great vacation while we were on ours. Love seeing all the pictures of them having fun and being spoiled there. We don't worry about leaving them when they are at Jessica's.
This is my 4th visit with Jessica. This time, Jessica and Ken took care of my dogs over the Christmas week. My dogs loves to go to their house. I also received pictures periodically which is sweet. Jessica always does an excellent job!
chipper loves going to Jessica's always comes home rested & happy. & were so lucky we found her:) 100% happy everytime we have her watch our chipper. thanks again & happy New Years!!
Jessica and her husband did a great job with my babies over Christmas week. Jersey is normally very timid when she meets new people but she ran in the house and made herself right at home. She was even at ease with Jessica's husband, which was even more surprising since Jersey is scared of most men. Both of my dogs were well cared for and I loved getting pictures of them while I was away showing me what they were up to. I was not nervous or worried once while away that my dogs were feeling anxious or sad without human interaction or locked up in a cage. Jessica did an excellent job with my dogs making them feel welcome and loved while they were with her. I will definitely use her again!

Jessica provided the best experience for our dogs this past weekend! Jessica has excellent experience handling all types of dogs and her own dog is very calming and sets the right level of energy for playtime with other dogs. We received daily texts and e-mail updates with photos and videos showing that our pups were having a fantastic time with their new pooch pals! We really felt that our dogs were loved and cared for while we were away. We also really appreciated her flexibility with pick up and drop off times. Our dogs came home tired and happy - can't ask for more than that! We will definitely use Jessica again!

awesome as always:) thank you so much
Jessica is a sweetheart! I left my bulldog Tallulah (who needs attention & does not like to be left alone) with Jessica for 1 week. She got to play with other dogs for the 1st time because she is an only dog at home. She did great and Jessica sent me pictures of the dogs playing and sleeping. I could tell that Tallulah was comfortable staying there. I would highly recommend Jessica! I went on vacation worry free and will definitely book with Jessica again!!

Jessica and her husband took good care of my dog. She got plenty of lap time which is good because she likes to cuddle. Jessica sent me updates and pictures too.
great stay for chipper:) he loves his buddy twister & Jessica is wonderful too. thanks so much
chipper loves it here:) the best experience. thank you so much
We were very pleased with Jessica. Rudy seemed to feel very much at home with her. Will definitely use her in the future.
Jessica and Ken took amazing care of my baby, Tynan! It is a great feeling to leave our pet in the care of a family where you know he will not be alone in a kennel while you are gone. They adopted him as one of their own for a couple of days!

Thank you and we will definately be seeing you soon!

I love bringing my husky Chipper to Jessica & Ken, he comes home happy & we have peace of mind when he's there knowing he's in great hands:) thank you so much guys, he will be back soon for another stay:)
Jessica obviously loves dogs and knows how to take care of them. We very much appreciated being able to board our little pug in a home environment versus a kennel, and receiving regular e-mails with photographs was a great bonus. Her resident St. Bernard is very gentle and enjoys the company of other dogs. When our dog had a medical issue Jessica took her to the vet right away, and the visit was covered by the DogVacay insurance. We would not hesitate to have Jessica take care of our dog again.

This was the first time we used DogVacay and it was a very good experience. Jessica was so nice and took really good care of our dogs. We enjoyed seeing the pictures she sent us while we were out of town. There is a tall privacy fence and nice backyard. I did not have to worry about my dog jumping the fence. They got a lot of attention and petting from Jessica and her husband. I have two more dates booked already. Buddy and Zoe had a great vacation there!

We Loved Jessica and her Saint Bernard & our dog was so happy to be able to play & run with other dogs:) we would 100% recommend for boarding, we are happy we found her. Thanks so much
Jessica was great, she sent photos via email that let us know how are dog was doing with her throughout our trip. Great peace of mind knowing our dog was in good hands. We will definitely be leaving our girl "Ziggy" with Jessica in the future.
This is the first time we used Dogvacay with our lab, Maggie. We went over and met with Jessica and their wonderful St. Bernard, Twister, ahead of time. They were great and answered all of our questions. Maggie spent a fun two weeks with them and we received many photos of her stay. We would definitely recommend Saints Alive and Jessica!

Jessica was great! My pups felt right at home. Will use her again.
Jessica is AWESOME! She took such good care of our boxer. She kept us informed of how things were going and sent pictures on a regular basis. She always thought about keeping our dog safe, healthy and having a good time. We will definitely use her again!

This was the second time we had Jessica take care of our two Minpins. It was only for the day, but Jasper and Baxter had a good time!
We had Jessica take care of our two minpins, Jasper and Baxter,while we spent a week in Florida. We did a greet and meet and Jessica's Saint Bernard, Twister, welcomed them into her home and was very gentle with them. We received updates and photos during their stay and they looked to be happy to have a safe, cozy and loving place away from home.

Jessica is wonderful! It was Maci's first time away from us & she couldn't have been in better hands. We will most certainly be using Jessica the next time we are headed out of town.
This was my first experience with DogVacay, and it could not have been more positive. Jessica was awesome, my dog had a wonderful time and I'm already planning my next trip. I especially appreciated that she was willing to take my dog on a last-minute booking.

It is so nice to have Jessica take care of our Topsy! We traveled out of the country to Bosnia for nine days and had no worries about Topsy! We knew she was in good hands! The e-mail pictures of Topsy having fun with new friends was something my family really enjoyed seeing! Topsy was very happy and well cared for with Jessica!

I was apprehensive about leaving Poppy for so many days. (She doesn't always get along with other dogs. But, Jessica knew just how to ease Poppy into her staycation home. Jessica was the finest of caregivers! Jessica even let Poppy sleep with her! She and Twister are our BFFs. (We live in the neighborhood: often on our afternoon walks, Poppy leads me straight to Jessica's door.) That says it all.

Jessica was very friendly and good with Whimsey. You can tell she loves dogs and cats! She sent me pictures and updates about Whimsey while I was away. Twister (Jessica's dog) is a big and sweet girl and was very good with Whimsey.
Jessica is awesome! Our little Topsy had a great time and was well cared for. It was very nice to receive updates and pictures everyday! A++ Jessica's big dog Twister and two cats were were great friend to our mini dachshund Topsy and I think she misses them!

This was the first time I tried Dogvacay and Jessica made me feel very safe and secure to leave my 1 year old Malteese / Bichon at her house. I definetely recommend her, she is very professional and answered all my questions. what i liked the most was that she sent me pictures of my dog and how he was behaving. I am very happy and satisfied with her service and i will be taking my dog back again in the near future.

We normally leave our Wrigley with family when we leave out of town, however, this trip we could not. Then a friend told me about DogVaca. It was easy, convenient and friendly.

Jessica and Ken were very knowledgable about dogs and cats and asked me all the questions I would hope they asked to ensure they would care for my Wrigley accordingly. The home was clean and the fenced yard was great for my active boy. While we were on our family trip, they sent me pictures of my boy enjoying his time via text. When we picked him up, he was happy and well played with. Jessica told us how they played ball together and how he chased the cats around for fun. It was just like him being home! I felt great knowing that there was someone with my Wrigley that would show him love and treat him as if he was their own. It was only one night, but for me, it was comforting to know that he was well cared for, it offered me peace while I was away from him.

I would use Jessica again! I know she fell in love with my Wrigley and cares for him as if he was hers!

This was the first time I tried Dogvacay and Jessica and her family were wonderful!!!! I was extremely nervous leaving my dog with a stranger. Jessica and her family made me feel comfortable, answered all my questions and took terrific care of my bichon/shih tzu mix. My 10.5 lb dog got along great with her dog Twister (such a sweetie) and her two cats. Tiffany never was up close to a cat before and they all got along great. Jessica kept me posted the entire time with texts and photos. It is really comforting receiving those texts knowing your dog is doing fine. I couldn't be happier with “Saints Alive!”! We will be trusting Jessica again with the care of Tiffany!!
