About Jackson

Hello, my name is Jackson and I love dogs! I don't currently have one but I've cared for dogs my whole life. I'm also an occasional dog walker for the local Humane Society. I enjoy walking, playing and going hiking with dogs. I don't have a private yard, but I live near a park and some hiking trails. I am also able to bring a dog to work with me. My work location has a large, fenced yard. There is one dog (a medium yellow lab) at work that is very friendly and loves to play.

I would like to get to know both the dog and it's owner(s) before I agree to watch a dog. I don't believe in physical abuse as a training method or as a punitive measure. I do believe that dogs need walking everyday as well as lots of love and care. I have a very clean driving record, and I always drive safely, especially with dogs in the car! I also follow all the city of Durango's ordinances regarding leashes and pet waste removal.

I will only watch well behaved, house trained dogs. I'm not interested in dogs that jump on furniture, chew up household items, or are not leash trained. I will not watch dogs that are aggressive or threatening to other dogs or people. I also do not text so if you're the type of owner who needs constant text updates on your dog then I am probably not the sitter for you. I will happily return calls though within a few hours. I appreciate honest dog owners who divulge any and all of their dog's possible problematic behaviors ahead of time.

I've know Jackson for several years and he has watched my dog, Avery, on several occasions. Avery loves going on walks and hikes with Jackson, and he always brings her back safe and sound. She is always excited to see him which is better than any testimonial I could write for him!

Jackson was fabulous! He was more than accommodating and truly helped me enjoy a vacation because I knew I could trust him.
We feel so fortunate to have found Jackson and his wife to watch Laney! We recently lost another dog to cancer, and Laney did not do well boarding without her over Thanksgiving. We were scrambling for other options for Christmas and found Jackson's without her over Thanksgiving. We were scrambling for other options for Christmas and found Jackson's profile on dogvacay. We were leaving for nearly two weeks, so he agreed to do a meet and greet beforehand for a couple of hours -- which was awesome. We felt really comfortable leaving her and she was happy and comfortable in someone's home for much less than we've paid at boarding facilities. He even gave us an adorable gift when we picked her up. We will definitely contact Jackson in the future as our first option when we go out of town.

I highly recommend Jackson B!
Jackson has a very calm and friendly demeanor, which the dogs picked up on immediately. We were visiting the Durango area and needed daycare; I was apprehensive as we have only left our 11 year old dogs one other time area and needed daycare; I was apprehensive as we have only left our 11 year old dogs one other time with someone not known to them, on that one occasion, both dogs were stressed when I picked them up; not so with Jackson B! Mandy and Rudy were happy and content when we picked them up, they didn’t even seem to be that excited to see us! I think they would have been happy to spend the night with Jackson B.
Thank you Jackson, knowing you were caring for Mandy and Rudy, Paul and I were able to enjoy our day in Durango.
