About John

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
2 year pet sitter for DogVacay with many new friends and pet parents. Looking forward to many more years and making many more doggy friends. Former 30 year pet parent of 2 lovable mutts. Both living 15 years, one after the other. I have not been able to replace my last puppy and since finding this site, figured I have found an outlet for my love of dogs. My own dogs always have had at least 4 walks a day. Lengths of the walks always depended upon the weather and their health. Nearby doggy park. Full time supervision. Companionship for both of us, since I'm retired and always home. Always extra space in bed for those overnight stays. Plenty of neighborhood doggie friends to socialize with. Smaller dogs preferred. Connect daily with your pooch through FaceTime if you have it!

I had booked a friend's dog with John several years ago and she was very pleased. It finally worked out that my pup could stay with him. Everything went well and Lily was a happy dog!!
This was my first time with John. I can't state more emphatically how WONDERFULLY my maltipoo Oliver was treated!! I was emailed updates and photos everyday! I couldn't be happier with John and this service!!! 10 out of 10
Zoey had a wonderful visit with John. They played and walked enough to wear her out. And it takes a lot to wear out a Jack Russell!

John sent update emails and pictures, which gave us peace of mind.

We'll be back so Zoey can have more play time with John!
John was great! He is very patient with my puppy and kept me up to date constantly about how the puppy did. He was also very flexible in terms of the picking up and dropping off time. We will defiantly have our puppy stay with him again.
John took care of and loved our pup for just over three weeks. I could not have left Sydney with a more caring and kind dog sitter. John sent me email updates and photo's constantly. I highly recommend John to love and care for your pup while you are away.
Another great stay with John! Chino loves John and we never worry when he is there.
Our dogs are treated like family. They have never been boarded but always stayed with family. John impressed me from our meet and greet. He seemed like someone that truly likes dogs and enjoys taking care of them. When the boys stayed with him for 3 nights, we were updated constantly with pictures. I highly recommend John and Scout and Roscoe loves him. If your dogs are like family, John is your guy.
John was awesome and put us at ease when we visited him for a meet and greet. He also did an awesome job at keeping us posted and sending us pictures to put us at ease. Would highly recommend John as he will do a great job is taking care of his four legged guests
We could not have found a better person to take care of Poptart and Stewie! John was so great with them, I do not think they even missed us. Definately recommend him to any dog and owner.
This was the third time that John has taken care of my fur baby (Sam) and I think both of them enjoyed it. John takes such good care of Sam! This last trip Sam definitely recognized John's place and was so excited for his visit.

I can't say enough good things about John. He's friendly, clearly loves animals and will keep you up to date with photos throughout your dog's vacation. If you are considering a pet sitter in the area - I highly recommend him!

John - Thank you for another great doggie vacation for Sam!!
My husband and I are new to the Cincinnati area and feel so thankful to have found John to watch our dog, Sam, while we were out of town for a long weekend trip. We found him through all of the positive reviews listed on Dogvacay and were just as pleased as his previous reviewers. John was a great and I'd highly recommend him if you're looking for a reliable, attentive dog sitter. Communication was great throughout the pick-up / drop off process and we received photo updates as well as short messages from John to let us know what he and Sam had been up to.

It is great to be able to relax comfortably and know that our dog is being well taken care of while we're out of town. We will definitely be repeat customers as future trips arise!
John took excellent care of Peanut and kept us informed the entire trip with pictures and updates. It was the first time we had left her and we were nervous about it, but he made sure she was happy. We will definitely use him again if we go away.
A friend who has used dogvacay previously arranged for John to take care of my Westie Duffy while I had surgery. I felt that Duffy bonded with John quickly at our meet/greet and that it would be a good match. Duffy was with John almost a week and I feel Duffy had loving care and plenty of exercise. John communicated with me through my friend so I knew how Duffy was doing. He was kind enough to bring Duffy back to my home for me. I would recommend John!!
Another great stay with John! I didn't worry about Chino at all with John. He takes very good care of my high energy and nosey little furrkid. I wouldn't hesitate to leave Chino with John any time!
John is an amazing doggie care giver! My dog is much like a toddler getting into everything and he had so much patience with him. It made the trip so much easier because I had constant contact with John telling me how Chino was doing. He emailed me pictures and updates every day. We will be using John again in February and I'm not worried at all. It's so hard to leave your furkid at home, but leaving em with someone who is loving on them makes it so much better.
John was a great host for my baby Akira, they got along from the first moment and that allowed us to enjoy our vacation to the fullest! Thank you so much John and hopefully we see u on our next trip!
This was Jax second visit with John. He was very excited to see John and also Macy who was visiting again. It is wonderful to be able to go away and know that Jax is well taken care of. John does a great job and we will definitely book with him again.
Macy had another great stay with John (and Jax). My little chicken dog didn't try to follow me out the door when I dropped her off like she did the first time - she knew I was leaving her in a loving home. John emailed me pictures & updates so I knew how she was doing. We'll definitely contact John next time Macy needs a place to stay.
John was great! I couldn't have asked for more. I think she got more loving and attention than she got at home! He was very understanding when it came to "Jess" being almost 15 years old. He's a dog lover. What more can I say. He was great!!!

John was great with my Beagle, Maisy. He took special care of her and treated her like his own. I would definately recommend him to anyone.
Rudy had another great stay with John! It's such a comfort to me knowing that he's being so well cared for and that it isn't just a job for John. You can tell that he really cares. I will continue to call on him without hesitation!
John was great with our girl Macy. Macy tends to be very hesitant with new people but John was very patient with her. She was very happy & playful when we picked her up. John sent email updates and/or pictures of Macy almost every day we were gone. She went for lots of walks, got lots a loving attention, and made a new doggie friend (Jax) during her vacation. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing she was in such good hands. I would definitely recommend John to anyone!
John kept excellent care of Jax. I can't say enough about how pleased I am. John is very in tuned to dogs. He took the time to get Jax schedule and really make sure he was able to adjust and was comfortable. Jax had a great time, I think he would of stayed. We will definitely book our next DogVaycay with John. Jax says it was definitely a five star experience!
I was so pleased with how John interacted with Rudy. They hit it off right away. John was very attuned to Rudy's needs and when I picked Rudy up I think he wanted to stay there! Five stars for John!
