About Alison, Scott and kids

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our Family has been taking care of the neighborhood dogs and relatives dogs for years. We, my husband and 3 young kids, have loved it so much, I have decided to try DogVacay.
I will be the primary caretaker. I have a degree in zoology and worked as a vet tech. Most importantly though, I trained and raised a yellow lab who lived for nearly 16 years.
Our family is very active and enjoys the outdoors. We love to take long and frequent walks with our temporary pets. I walk nearly 25 miles a week and would love the company of any dog! We live walking distance to the sound,so your puppy can take a swim or walk on the beach. We are located near Navarre and close to Tiger Point. We offer multi dog discounts. $30.00 for the first dog and $20.00 for the next.
Your dog is welcome to sleep in any of the beds in the house. We only accept pets that are fully house trained. We have a two night minimum stay.
We promise to treat your pet like our own and love it the way you do!
The Janshak Family is looking forward to meeting you and your doggie!

This was my first experience using DogVacay. While I was hesitant at first, I am so happy I did, and I couldn't be happier with my Dog's Host, Allison.

Allison took my dog Cole for his Vacay for most of a week over the Thanksgiving Holiday. She sent daily update she on how he was doing, and even pictures and videos of his playtime with her children and the other dogs there. Cole must have had a lot of fun, because when we got him back he wasn't so exhausted he slept for two whole days!

I would absolutely recommend Allison and the kids and I hope to be able to Send Cole on Vacay with them again in the future!

Fantastic family! Austin (our 75 lb Goldendoodle) always loves going to be with Alison and family.

I know this is very very late but your family is so appreciated and we couldn't have done our big move without you there to help watch Izzy. She loved your kids so much! Thank you again!
Allison and Family are awesome! My 2 pups were treated like part of the family and seemed to really enjoy their stay. We will definitely be using them the next time we have to go out of town.
I cannot say enough about this family and how much they love our dogs. This is the fifth time Max and Kira have stayed with them. Our first time was for two weeks during our wedding/honeymoon. During that stay, our older dog needed to see the vet for an old wound that resurfaced. Even though we were out of the country, Allison continued to keep us informed as to what was happening and how Kira was doing. We were so thankful to have found someone who cared as much as we do about our "kids". We continue to book with Allison & family because they DO care. The "kids" have so much fun while there. Allison's kids are just great with our "kids". They even made great sleeping buddies! Max and Kira always look forward to going there, they know the way in the car and get really excited when we turn on their street.

Again, we cannot say thank you enough to this family for loving our "kids" as much as we do. Thank you again!

I have a very large puppy and due to his size and level of positive energy, was hesitant to utilize this service, but necessity driven, made the call and could not have been more pleased. Upon meeting Alison and her family, my dog was very exited and I wasn't sure if it was going to work out. As soon as he met the children, he settled in, and was fine and so was I. I stayed there long enough to see how he acted and reacted to the environment and family, and by the time I left their home, was not only pleased with my choice, but comfortable in the fact that I had found a family of dog lovers that would take care of mine like their own. They informed me on what type of schedule/routine they practiced in walk and feeding, and adapted it to my requirements. During the Vacay, they communicated with me on numerous occasions and was very informative in letting me know that he was doing well. When I picked him up, he was happy to see me, but I could see that he enjoyed his stay with the family. Not only do I plan to utilize them again, but I would recommend their home for anyone looking for a place for their four legged companion. A great experience for my dog, and myself as well. Thanks Alison, Scott and kids.

Will not use Alison again. She did NOT give my dog her daily meds.
This family is THE BEST with our dogs. Our GSD puppy has a lot of fun playing with the kids and they are super great with him. Our older dog loves going there and having fun too!
I'm so very happy to have found such a loving, fun family for Chewie while I had to be away on business. From the initial visit to when I picked her up, I was overwhelmed by their love for animals and their complete devotion to ensuring Chewie had a great visit. I would strongly recommend Alison, Scott and their kids as a "home away from home" for any dog, and I will definitely be calling them again next time I have to leave town.

Magnolia had a terrific stay! She was so excited upon arrival and was smiling when I dropped her off. She's treated so well & catered to as the princess pup she always is at home too. We so appreciate the great care she receives with Alison, Scott & the kids.

They have a wonderful family and was awesome with our black lab Ellie
I have nothing but positive things to say about Alison and her family! Daisy had SO much fun with them, and I was at ease knowing she was in such great hands. I will definitely be booking the Janashak family again when I go out of town. Y'all are the absolute best!!

Fantastic experience! I received updates throughout the stay. Oreo had a blast...thank you!
Alison did a great job with my older (14 year old) dog and my boyfriend's (10 year old) Maltese. We've already booked another stay with Alison.
Our dog Sadie had a wonderful vacation with this family. She slept in the bed with the kids, we saw a video of her playing with other dogs and the family, she got to go on walks, and even went swimming in the sound and chased mullet. Alison, Scott and the kids treated Sadie just like their own.
What a great choice we made bringing our baby here. We WILL bring her here again.

Our two pups had a fun time with Alison and her family--it was great seeing a video of our German Shepherd/Husky playing soccer with her kids, since he loves both soccer and kids! Alison took them on long walks so they had plenty of exercise. They came home tired and slept all day--a sure sign that they were having a good time.

We had recently moved to the area and needed to find a pet sitter for our GSD. Luke loves people and especially kids so he had a great time! We will plan on using Alison and her family again!
This was the best decision we made for our "kids" while we went on vacation. Allison and her entire family were awesome! Max & Kira can't wait to go back for another stay!
Our dog, Bailey, had a great time with Alison and family. They are great with animals and we knew that she was in good hands. Bailey can't wait for her next Vacay!
Wish I could give 10 stars for the amazing care Alison and Co gave to Charlie. He had a wonderful time and I think he had more fun on his vacation than I did! This was the first time Charlie ever left his house when we traveled and I worried he might not adjust but thanks to Alison he had a blast with the family and I had no worries. Alison kept me up to date with texts and videos and I could see what fun he was having. I would not hesitate to recommend Alison to my family and friends whenever they need a secure and happy place to leave their beloved pets. Many, many thanks to Alison and family for making Charlie part of the family while we were away.

Excellent. Our lab had a great time! Had lots of fun with the kids throwing his dummy and bringing it back to do again and again. When we picked up our boy he was glad to see us but went back inside to see the kids and tell the other dogs good bye! Had a great time and definitely will have Allison and family take care of our boy again!

This was my first experience with DogVacay. Alison & family are awesome. I wish I could give them 10 stars!

Alison is great about communication. She returns e mails and texts in a timely manner. She would randomly send photos and updates about the dogs while we were out of town. My whole family enjoyed the messages about our dogs while we were on vacation.

Their house was so clean that it is hard to imagine that dogs frequently stay there. Alison also had no trouble caring for our special needs pet, who is a blind diabetic that requires two insulin injections a day.

We don't travel a lot, but when we do, we will come back to Alison for care. I will also recommend Alison and DogVacay to anyone. You can honestly tell that this entire family loves caring for pets. They are highly recommended. Thank you! A+ care all the way!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!! My dogs LOVE them. I am so happy with the treatment my "fur babies" received. Highly recommend!!! Will use them again. I had such peace of mind and was able to enjoy my vacation, knowing how well they were taken care of.
We left our golden-doodle with this amazing family for two weeks while in Greece. We weren't worried at all about Winston getting enough fun, love and care. Alison sent me photos every couple days and it just made our trip that much better to see him having fun. Their 3 kids are so sweet and I know Winston had a blast with them as well.
Unlike when picking him up from a kennel, he seemed content, calm and happy when my husband and I arrived. I would absolutely recommend this loving family and we'll definitely be bringing Winston over again!!

I can't say enough good things about this family. Daisy did just great! I was able to leave her with Allison and gang while I went on client meetings. There was no way I could leave her in the hotel room hours on end. Daisy had a great time with the kids, kitty cat and fabulous Winston, another furry guest at the house. I would highly recommend Allison's services. I felt completely at ease leaving Daisy each day. Daisy was so happy, content and exhausted by the time I picked her up each day. I will be reserving time with Allison every time I return back here to Gulf Breeze. I am also going to give her contact info to the hotel for guests who are traveling with pets. 10 stars from us!!! Thank you Allison, Scott, kids, kitty and Winston!

When we chose to leave our New puppy with Alison, Scott and their kids we weren't looking for a dog sitter we were looking for a second family home for our Emily. We travel often and dog kennels are just too traumatic. Alison sent us regular pictures and videos relieving any of our concerns and when we picked her up, her relaxed behavior told us everything we needed to know about her stay with the Janashaks and We are already reserving time for Emily's next stay with Alison and her crew.

Starbucks was right at home and very well cared for by Alison, Scott, and their kids. He got plenty of exercise, the whole family adopted him. We routinely got pictures of Starbucks at play (or sunbathing). Of course he was glad to see us when we returned, but we could tell that he would not object to another round of being the crown prince. If we have the opportunity in the future, we would certainly arrange for Starbucks to stay with Alison and Scott.

Alison and her family were wonderful! This was the first time we had left our dogs with someone other than family so I was a little nervous about how they would behave. Alison sent me frequent updates and pictures of our dogs playing with her kids so I knew they were having a great time!
Read More...
Perfect. Alison and her family are so sweet. Drop off and pick up were easy. I felt very confident that Winston would be loved and cared for. When I picked him up he seemed really fond of the whole family. He must have had a lot of fun because he slept all say once he got home! I would absolutely take him there again.

Alison and her fabulous family made Tilly feel like she was part of the family, again. They are her second home. Thanks Alison!
Our dog loves this family. She is so happy to stay with them. Alison and her family have such a special connection with the animals in their care. We enjoy our vacation so much more knowing how well our pets are being cared for. This is the only place I will ever board my animals in the future.

Alison, Scott and the kids were awesome! From the meet and greet to drop off and pick up, they were very flexible and helpful. Banjo had a blast and is still napping after an action-packed weekend. Alison sent great pictures and updates throughout the weekend. It was so nice to be able to feel at ease while away from my little guy. I highly recommend this kind family!

As usual Nikka's stay with the Alison, Scott and the kids was SUPERB! Nikka loves it there and we can always rest assured that she is well taken care of and treated as part of the family. She loves them and it is very evident that they love her. So, Bob, Nikka and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being so good to our baby! Will see you soon! As in the 28th of August...:)

I was hesitant to leave our dog anywhere, for she is just like a human member of our family, but after meeting Allison and her family, I knew our dog Piper would feel right at home. They were so friendly and accommodating, even my kids wanted to stay there and not go on vacation! A friendly, loving atmosphere,,,,, we will use them again soon!!!! Can't say enough great things! A+++++

Alison and her kids were great with my dogs! They are both passed out sleeping right now, obviously from a long day of running around and having fun! She sent me pictures just about everyday, which definitely eased my mind. I would definitely recommend her services, and will be using them again myself. :-)

Trekker's stay with Alison and family was fabulous as always! He was comfortable and happy when we arrived so I know he is well taken care of. I love getting Alison's notes/photos. It keeps me from missing him as much. I will always use Alison when I need overnight care for Trekker. She is terrific!
Read More...
Alison and gang were great. My dog had the best time and is still passed out on the couch. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!
This is my second time I've used Allison. My 2 babies just spent the last 10 days with Allison and her family and I think they probably had more fun than we did lol! I can see my 2 dogs are always well cared for and they do enjoy the time spent at Allison's house. I love being able to go away and not have to worry about them. I trust Allison and her family completely!
Read More...
As usual, Scott, Alison and family were a delight! They took great care of Nikka and she was healthy and happy when we went to pick her up. I always know that she had fun because she is tired when we bring her home for a few days.

Anyone would be lucky to have them care for their pet. Nothing but, the best!

Thanks again Scott, Alison and kids! You were terrific/Pawsome!

Expect to see us again in June around the 12th I think thru the 14th...maybe the 15th. Not sure yet of dates.

Samson is treated like family when he is with Alison, Scott & the kids. It's a great feeling knowing that my dog loves his time there. The second you walk through the door the kids are off to get a towel knowing Samson makes a mess at his water bowl & Samson walks in like he's at home. Thanks for loving him.

Alison, Scott & the kids are fantastic! I had vacation out of the country & felt completely at ease knowing that Boo was in such kind & loving care. They helped manage her medications, spent time with her, emailed me pictures, took her on walks & treated her like one of the family. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you!

Samson was so excited to see Scott when we pulled up that he jumped out the window to greet him. Thank you for providing Samson a home away from home.
5 star stay for Trekker at Alison's house! A very caring and pet savvy family. Trekker gets plenty of exercise and attention with Alison and Scott. He is looking forward to seeing the family again!
This is such a great family to entrust with your pets. They are such nice people and love animals. This was the first time I have had anyone besides family watch my 2 dogs. It was such a great experience. Alison sent pictures and updates everyday which helped put my mind at ease because I could see how happy my babies were. One of my dogs requires medicine daily and Alison was great with that as well. They are such a fun loving family and my dogs loved them. I am already booking them again and will continue to for our future trips.

Well, I can not say enough good things about Scott and Alison! They are wonderful people and a terrific family! They are so friendly and we were extremely comfortable with them from the minute we met them. They put us at ease immediately! My 10 month old Shia-Poo is needless to say, my baby. We call her Princess Nikka. So it was very important that I find someone that Nikka would be comfortable with as well. On the day before we were to leave, my little Nikka woke up in heat! I had planned on having her spayed when we returned. So, I called Alison and I was sure that they would not want to deal with puppy diapers and all. Alison could not have been anymore kind. She said, she talked with Scott and they would be fine with it. Imagine that!
Nikka was very well taken care of and I know she had a great time with them as I received pictures and little clips of her having fun with the kids. They were the best at taking care of my baby and I would highly recommend them to anyone. You would be able to rest and take your vacation comfortable knowing that your pet is in the best home. I don't think Nikka missed us at all! Nikka has been moping around since I got her home. I think she misses all the action and attention of Alison and Scott's home. I know that I will let them care for my Nikka again and again.

Thanks again Scott and Alison! I do so appreciate you both and your 3 children...please tell Sydney (hope I got that right) that Nikka will be back!

Betty M ( Janey) They are all indeed Pawsome!

Alison and her family are like a second family for my Tilly. They really care about the dogs they take in and Tilly loves them. She always pouts for a day or two when she comes home because she misses the kids.
You can definitely feel confident leaving your precious pet with this family. The children are very gentle and will make sure Tilly gets plenty of exercise. I couldn't ask for more.

Samson is a 1 year old labrador who goes everywhere with me so when a trip came up that he couldn't go on I panicked. Since my dog has so much interaction with humans I couldn't board him at a facility. While checking out places online I came across DogVacay, PERFECT!!!

Alison and her family are wonderful. Just before Christmas I found out I needed a place for my dog to stay & Alison let us do a meet & greet 2 days before Christmas. After bending over backwards for my family the flu hit our house hard & we had to cancel 2 trips in 2 weeks. Imagine my surprise when I made a reservation and she accepted it :)

My daughter did not want Samson staying with Alison because she was afraid our dog would like her children better. Let me tell you, she ought to be afraid. Alison's entire family loves dog's and my dog loved having 5 people who wanted to play ball, go for walks & rub his belly.

My experience has been so amazing and just what I wanted for Samson. I have already told 5 people about DogVacay and am planning Samson's stay for next month. Thank You to everyone in Alison's home.

We were going on a fifteen day trip (over the Christmas holidays), and needed a place for our pet to stay. Roxie, our energetic Lab mix, is too much a part of our family to put in jail at a kennel. Alison and her family made Roxie a part of their family. Roxie went to parks, went on long walks and in general, had a great time while we were gone. I can not imagine a better place to board a dog.
Read More...
Alison and family were great pet sitters. Alison worked with me and my dog pre-stay to make sure that my dog would fit-in in a multiple dog situation. She was friendly, kind, and patient. I enjoyed getting the pictures and messages while I was gone. I felt my dog was in good hands and could enjoy my vacation. It was a great experience.

My 2 babies stayed with Alison and her family for 5 days and when I picked them up you could tell they were extremely well cared for. I like the fact they are staying in a home environment and getting to do the things that I normally let them do at home with me. I will never use a commercial boarding kennel again I will use Alison for all my future needs.

Alison and her entire family are amazing! Libby and Elvis felt like part of their family from the very beginning. We had a great trip and kept in contact with our puppies, even photos of the kids playing dress up with them! I recommend them to everyone and Elvis and Libby will be back...

My Tilly Loves Alison and her family. Is there anything else I need to know before leaving my baby? You cannot go wrong with this wonderful gang!
I didn't get well as fast as I had hoped, and Alison again assured me that Comet and Snoopy had a home with her family for as long as it took for me to get well and strong enough to bring them home. Comet and Snoopy had so much fun there, and I wondered if they would be happy to see me when I finally came to get them. Alison made sure to be very enthusiastic upon my arrival, and my dogs were overjoyed, although I think they would have been happy to stay with Alison's family forever. Alison had all of our various dog luggage (food, meds, toys, etc) ready to go, as well as their daytime crates, so that when I arrived, all I had to do was load everyone up and give Alison a hug for taking such good care of my doggies. I highly recommend Alison and her family for being a fabulous vacation home for dogs. Also, she was one of very few places that would take more than one dog. It is important to me that my dogs be boarded together, and I was fortunate to find Alison.

I got sick with shingles on my vacation. Alison was flexible and assured me that Comet and Snoopy were welcome to stay as long as I needed. She provided more photos, videos and words of encouragement for my healing, which really helped a lot. Comet and Snoopy were becoming part of Alison's household, and continued forming strong bonds with the family. The kids were able to get Comet to play with toys, which Comet had not done in years. Comet was so happy! Snoopy was spoiled thoroughly, tucking in the children at night and sleeping in the bed with Alison and her husband.

Alison and her family became a true home for Comet and Snoopy. Alison sent me photos and videos, showing Comet and Snoopy playing with the children and having a blast. My dogs bonded with the family immediately at our meet and greet, which reassured me that they would get great care at this home. Snoopy's detailed medication plan for allergy management was followed perfectly, and Alison was willing to do all the extra baths, multiple medications, both oral and topical, without any fuss. I was so worried that I wouldn't find anyone willing or able to take care of Snoopy, and was thrilled with Alison's confidence and accomplishment.

Alison was great from the day I made the reservation. She was in constant contact from beginning to end. My two wiener dogs were just as spoiled at her house as they are mine! I am sure of that because of the many pictures (which I thoroughly loved receiving!) she sent over their stay with her and her family. I would recommend Alison to anyone who needs a petsitter and I will certainly use her in the future!
Read More...
Alison was wonderful! My small, fluffy dog is very picky about who she will bond with and she was happy at Alison's home. She loved the three children and the walks they took. Alison kept her coat brushed and even got her to eat while I was away.

I feel very comfortable with Alison. I will definitely use her again and highly recommend her and her family. Your pet will receive all the attention you are hoping for!
