About Janet and John

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I can care for your valued pet when you can't. I offer trips to the park, on or off leash, ball throwing, cuddles and lots of scritching behind the ears. I can pick up and drop off your pup for walks or visit your special pet in your home. I offer boarding for small to medium sized dogs as they will be most comfortable in our house size. We have a split level home with a small fenced backyard. We take regular trips to the off-leash dog park or, if preferred, an on-leash park. We walk for at least 1/2 hour up to 2 hours per day. Then there is playtime and potty time in increments throughout the day in my fenced backyard. The pups hang out with us in the common room where cuddles on the couch are favorite parts of the day.
I love walking and hiking and I love walking with dogs and seeing their happy faces running in the wind. My kids bestow lots of love and playtime and love to help with bathing and walking. We love and welcome visiting pets as a highly valued friend of the family and enjoy including them in our outings when we can.
*Extended stay, multiple-dog, military discounts available if needed.
**All pets need proper immunizations and flea treatment. I can take unneutered or unspayed dogs on a case by case basis only. :)
***Items to bring for your pup's vacay: Food, treats, bowls with names on them (optional), leash/harness, blanket for comforting smell of home (optional), toys (optional), filled out Vacay Discussion Guide questionnaire or hand-written instructions.
Thank you! :)

I was a little scared about using a dog sitter because I have never had anyone watch Demi other than family. But, Janet was amazing! We had a meet and greet leaving me feeling good about my decision to choose her as Demi's dog sitter. On my trip,she texted me updates and pictures of Demi,which was nice. I would def book her again and would recommend to anyone in need of a dog sitter!
Bo always has the best time at Janet and John's. Thanks!
Wonderful !
Great experience!!!! Thank you very much for taking my reservation in such short notice. My flight back to seattle got delayed 3 hours and Janet still worked with me to arrange the late pick up. Definitely a 5 stars service. Will definitely send my baby there in the future.
My dog had a great time staying here. He was well exercised and socialized. He has been sleeping for the last two days since I brought him home!
At first I was reluctant to bring my Josie to a pet host at first. After seeing some other boarding solutions, I decided that a dog sitter was a better solution. The human to dog interaction was the most important component for reserving with Janet. Upon coming back from vacation Josie looked like she had fun during her vacation. I personally recommend Janet for any of your pet needs. Josie will always have a place where I won't have to worry about her when I need to take her somewhere.
So glad to have found a B&B for Sprite so close to home!! She seemed like a happy dog when I picked her up. Will definitely stay wit you again.
I had my older Corgi Freya stay with Janet over Thanksgiving weekend. She has some trouble walking and Janet was very accommodating. When I picked her up she was as happy and healthy as ever.
John, Janet and Wilson did a great job with Reggie. I really appreciated the pictures that they sent us of his stay. Reggie must have had a great time because he slept for 2 days when he got home! Thanks again!
Great loving family! Janet is wonderful! She takes her job seriously! Winston wasn't caged up for any snout of time as he would have if we went with kennel. He was free to roam as if he was at home. Also by the time he got home he was pleasantly exhausted from the dog park adventure and playing with other dogs throughout the day! *****
Used host on recommendation of co-worker. Very pleased with the care both animals received and will continue to make reservations in the future as well as recommend to other people.
Daphne had a great 2 1/2 week vacation.She came home freshly bathed ,healthy, happy and obviously loved being with Janet and John
Everything went great, our dog had a great time!
Janet and family did a wonderful job making our little Sophie feel at home and comfortable. She was a happy little dog when I picked her up. We are very grateful and will certainly use them again. Thank you Janet.
Thank you Janet for the wonderful dog vaycay for my Rylie! She got lots of attention, a trip to the dog park and socializing and was happy when we picked her up! We loved getting pictures and updates from you! We appreciate you and will call you again!
This is my very first time using this app to book a host for my dog since I need to leave for a long vacation and didn't want her to be in cage the whole time. Janet is such a nice person, she takes good care of all the dogs of and she takes the dogs to the dog park almost everyday! She also sends picture update often! I'll definitely go to her again if I need a host for Pepsi in the future!
Janet and John were great for our dog Odie. I loved the messages and photos that were sent daily. I could tell they treated him as if he were their own. We will use them again for sure!!
Our 11 yr old Shitzu Terrior mix had a great time. We got several pictures and updates during our nearly 2 week vacation. Was worried at first about him being with so many other dogs but he seemed to settle in on our meet and greet. I think he was conflicted about leaving to come home... He heard his buddies bark and he was ready to go back and play! He definitely loved his dog park adventures. Thanks so much Janet and John for treating ours like one of yours!! We will bring Max back- we take him with us when we can but know a great place for him when we can't.
After a long absence, Marbles got a weekend away with Janet and John and family. He was so excited when we arrived that he bounded right in and upstairs to find his favorite people. I never worry when Marbles is in their care. He had such a good time that when he got home, he slept through the neighborhood fireworks.
I was very worried about leaving my dogs with someone. I have one that is very anxious around new people and surroundings. But my dogs absolutely loved going to Janet and John's house! They actually come home and pout! They are very patient and loving to both my dogs and my anxious dog actually lets her pet him and love on him! I would highly recommend this family to watch your dog(s)!!!
John and Janet and kids are awesome! Totally comfortable leaving Shiloh in their capable hands. They love her and she loves them. And I got pictures from Janet of Shiloh at the park!
Janet and John were wonderful "substitute parents" for our dog. We needed a place for him to stay while I had a serious operation, and we had to extend his stay when my recovery was more difficult than expected. They were extremely flexible and we felt most comfortable about his stay there. He seemed to have a very good time with them and the other dogs, and we appreciated the photos which Janet sent to keep us in touch with what he was doing. Very nice people with whom anyone could trust their dogs, we think.
Janet and her family were such a great help to us! They took splendid care of our sweet Viszla Arrow, and somehow he seemed to come home more docile! Very responsive and perfectly happy to send regular photo updates. We will gladly board with them again.
Our dog Benjamin had a great time while staying with Janet & John for 5 days. They sent us pictures of him each day, which helped us to share in all the fun he was having. We will definitely have him stay with Janet & John again. Thanks you guys.

This family is a 10 in my book! Zoë, my 11 yr old JRT, was really struggling to settle in since our move to Port Orchard in Late Feb /Early March. With the loss of all that was familiar (her favorite yard traded for apartment life, her favorite groomer for a scary shaving, her favorite grandparents for we weren't sure who yet... ), Her stomach & her skin became a hot mess! Finding Janet was such a blessing, both for Zoë & for me. She is happy & healthy again, exhausted when I pick her up at the end of every day but perks right up when we get closer to their home in anticipation of another great day! : ) A single pet mom couldn't ask for more!! They are flexible and soooo friendly! Janet sends pictures each day of an adventure they are on and it blesses my heart to know my girl is in such good hands.
Thank you Janet & John for opening your home & your hearts - we appreciate you ??
Woof!!!! Bentley had a great time (I could tell by the pictures) I'm sure he would be delighted to go stay again. We take him with us a lot and this was his first non kennel stay. He was calm and happy when we picked him up as opposed to hyper after kennel stays. Family dogs need a good family environment and this is tops. So happy to have found Janet and John.
At first we were worried about leaving our dogs for just over a week. The meet and greet was a great way for us to see where our dogs would be and who they would be with. Loved it! Once we got to our destination we barely had anytime to start to worry and Janet had already sent us some pictures and info on how the dogs were doing and what they were doing. Pictures and updates came through the entire time we were gone; even without having to ask! It was great and put me at ease about my precious little babies while I was gone. If we did have a question it was answered with a quick message (and phone call I'm sure if we had needed it). We came home to happy and healthy dogs. Would highly recommend!!! Very professional, very kind.
Janet & John were great with Lucy. They were friendly and accommodating and made leaving Lucy strangers easy & comforting.
Janet is amazing!!!
I can't say enough wonderful things about the care Janet gives to my two puppies while I am away. I can go on vacation and not have to worry about them. I am sure they enjoyed their walks and play time. I will user her services any time I am away. Thank you so much!
Janet is the best with Axel. :) He's always worn out :)
Janet was great. She took good care of Charlie and provided photos daily. I appreciated how communicative she was in the lead up, during, and after Charlie's stay. I hope Charlie can stay with Janet again in the future.
Janet and John were wonderful. Very communicative and flexible about arrangements. They clearly love dogs, and ours had a great time staying with them. Will definitely keep returning!

Janet was the BEST. My pitbull looked for her to come to the house days after I got back and was just so sad when she didn't come anymore. Looking forward to working with them many more times.
Highly recommend Janet and John. My pet was very well taken care of which was evident by the daily email and photo updates they provided. Janet and John were very friendly and personable and flexible. They are my first choice for my pet.
We have trusted our AussieTerrier Pippin to Lawsons many times, including 2 month-long vacations to Europe. Our only real problem has been his reluctance to leave his second home when we return. Pippin enjoys day-long attention with this family and gets to burn off terrier energy with other pets in their care. Janet communicates well by text and email and updates with photos enough to keep us assured of Pippin's well-being. Both kids are old enough for any dog and love their temporary charges as if their own pets. This review is current as of our pet's most recent stay in 12/15.
Janet and john, and even the 2 children, take this responsibility seriously,a nd they truly provide a Home away from Home for the dogs they keep. It is not just another thing to tend to. they really care for them. When i go to pick my dog, Ginger follows janet around, not wanting to leave her. She is the best.
Thanks again! Not worrying about the puppies while away is priceless.
Janet, John, and their kids took excellent care of our two fur babies! We had to leave them behind for a week-long vacation and - for the first time ever - didn't have family available to watch them. Our wonderful hosts helped ease any anxiety I had. Janet sent me a couple photos every few days and it was so nice to have a visual representation of how they were doing (lots of walks!) and just to see their faces. She also dropped them off at our home a couple hours before we got back (our flight arrived late in the evening) so I didn't have to wait until the next morning to see them. It was great to come home to their wagging tails. We're so happy to have people we can trust only 5 minutes from home and we will definitely board with them the next time we're in need. Thank you Janet & family! :)
As always, Janet and John's house was fantastic and my pup had a wonderful time! We are so grateful for them and the love they give our fur babies each and every time they visit. THANK YOU!!!
Janet did a great job taking care of my two dogs while I was away. She came to my house a couple times a day and kept in contact with me via text to let me know how they were doing. I felt very secure leaving them knowing they were in such great hands. I will definitely use her again. Thanks so much!
John and Janet were wonderful, as per usual! We chose to have our two boys (dogs) stay with them over the weekend of our wedding so that the pups wouldn't be neglected... I don't feel like we could have made a better choice for our fur babies. John and Janet not only loved on our pups, but made multiple trips to the dog park with them. When we picked them up today, the dogs were very excited to see us, but equally sad to leave heir new friends. :)
So grateful for this family and happy that they're there for ours!
Janet was awesome with Axel Rose. She is very willing to work with you to meet your needs. Axel is less restless and hyper now with his walks. She sends me photos and an update after his walk. I cannot say enough good things about her.
Our dogs had a great stay with Janet and her family! We got lots of pictures of their fun adventures while we were gone. We felt so good about leaving our dogs with such a loving, caring family.
Janet and her kids came to our house once a day to feed our cats, birds and fish while we were on a two-week vacation. They did a wonderful job and even gave our parrot extra attention when he was lonely. Everything was clean and tidy when we came home and all the pets were all happy and content. It's so wonderful to find someone you can trust with your pets. We will be definitely use her services in the future!
Both my pup and I love Janet! She is flexible with my schedule and great about communicating. She always sends updates and pics from their time together, which is awesome. Highly recommend! :)
Janet and John are personable, kind, and professional. They loved on our puppy and he was full of smiles when we picked him up after our day-trip! Thank you!!!
Janet has been so great. I had to extend our dogs' stay - twice! - and she has been flexible about changing our pick up date. I almost hate to review her so well, because we want to keep Janet and John as our best secret!
Janet and her family were extremely accommodating!! The meet and greet was an incredibly awesome experience. I left there with absolutely no reservations about my dogs stay. The stay was everything I could ever dream or imagine for my dog and more !! My dog was treated as valued member of their family. She was loved. I absolutely had not a care or reservation in the world at any time during her visit with Janet and her family. I would not hesitate a second to return to their home with my dog,
Janet and her family are so sweet. They took great care of my 10 month old, deaf puppy while we were away on vacation for 2 weeks. I received fun photos and updates. They definitely spoiled my furkid and I'm thankful for them! They took my pup on long walks, provided lots of play and interaction and even let her sleep on their bed with them!
Marbles has had a GREAT extended stay with Janet / John and family. He has had fun outings, gone to the beach and dog parks. He enjoys playing with the other dogs on Vacay. Marbles is getting excellent care and cuddles. It's his home away from home!
If they get paid for this from a supervisor, they deserve a raise. They went above and beyond to help me and deal with a situation i had. Give them maximum stars
Our dog, Piper absolutely loved his stay with Janet and John! In fact, he seemed rather sad to have to back to a home where he was the only dog. They took great care of him with regular walks and time at the dog park. They even spoke with his vet for us when he got stung by a bee and needed some meds to deal with the swelling. He came back clean and happy and we will definitely bring him back the next time we need to go away without him.
Marbles has a GREAT time every time he is there. Thanks so much for your care.
Janet and John were fabulous. The dogs were received with open arms and immediately seemed to feel at home. I was texted pictures every day, and each day they appeared increasingly relaxed and happy. When I picked them up 4 days later, they were calm and content, without the hysteria they greet me with when I've been away with other arrangements. It was obvious they felt comfortable in this environment. I would recommend it to anyone!
Janet stopped in to check on our cats a few times while we were on vacation for a week. She did a great job and the cats seemed content and we'll taken care of! She also text me updates throughout the week and must've cleaned up any of their messes too (thank you)! We will definitely use them for pet sitting again.
We got an update with how our dog was doing and they were flexible with when we picked our dog up.
Marbles was back several days this month. He absolutely loves his stay with Janet / John / and children. When I drop him off, he just walks right in like it is "home". Thanks for all the love and attention!
Janet is great with my giant newfie puppy Henry, she even used the ramp to get him in and out of the car and takes care when he looks like he has been walked too far or gets too hot.
This home is perfect for leaving your dog!! This is our second time and we are so grateful Nala loves staying here!
So friendly and accommodating! Sent an email update with pictures. When we picked up our dog, she was excited to see us but not anxious. I could tell she was comfortable with her stay. Definitely booking our next trip with them!
Janet was very friendly and willing to work with my schedule and my puppy :)
Janet and John are great- responsive, helpful, flexible, and most importantly our dogs love them!
Marbles always has a GREAT time with Janet, John and children. After a fun day he comes home and sleeps for 8 hrs straight. He is looking forward to the next time.
Such a great family- our dogs were so happy! Janet was really responsive with us and kind to our two dogs. We'll definitely be back any time we need another dog sitter!
At first meeting, we immediately felt at ease with Janet. After a night with Janet and her family, it was evident that Pepper was at ease with her too. he clearly enjoyed his stay with them. Normally, he's extremely anxious to come home after some time apart from us. Not this time. It seemed he was very content to stay if he could :)
Yes Marbles was back again to play with the Host's children and other dogs. He was happy yo see me, but asked when he can go back and play some more. :-)
Marbles had a great time playing with the host's children. Janet and John were very flexible on drop off / pick up schedules. Marbles is enjoying his new friends for a few more days and is looking forward to other visits in the future.
Janet and John replied quickly to my request. I had some questions about what to bring and what they needed from me to help make the stay easy for my dog. I always had a response within 24 hrs.when we arrived my dog instantly took to Janet. Normally my dog is skittish and very timid but not with Janet. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with Janet. As I was away from my pup Janet sent me pictures of him assuring me he was doing good. He really loved their daily walks. I will make another reservation with Janet and John without a doubt. Best experience ever!
Our Shiba Inu Shayla loves Janet and her family! Janet has walked and watched Shay and always has a great time and she loves spending time and playing with her kids!
My dog named Gracie is very important to me, and she was very well taken care of. The Pics sent to me made me very comfy and made my days while I was on travel. I will now always bring Gracie to them while I go on travels.
They are wonderful with my pets! When it was time to go home they were sad to leave. Janet and John take wonderful care of my fur babies. I will be bringing them back every time I'm out of town.
Everything seemed to go fine. Good to know your little pets are well taken care of. Thanks for taking away any worry about my pups while I was away. Chris
Once again, we are so pleased with Janet and her family. They truly have a way with animals. Our Stanley comes home relaxed and happy, clean and healthy. He gets tons of exercise and attention when he is in her care. She should really charge some kind of extra training fee since he seems to come home rehabilitated! :)
Janet and family took wonderful care of my Tillie. It was a last minute booking and they were available on a moments notice. Highly recommend them.
Maya is starting to feel very comfortable there. She is shy at first but Janet has been great in getting her used to being there. It was her 2nd time and she had a great time!
Janet and John took really good care of Max. He enjoyed his time there with lots of attention and trips to the park. I would recommend them any time!
We are so relieved we found Janet! Our dog has been to her house for 2 vacays so far and we are planning for many more. He gets excited when we pull into her driveway and when he gets out of the car, he runs up to her door wagging his tail. Janet runs her dog sitting services like a pro and so I don't feel like I'm inconveniencing her. My dog needs a lot of daily exercise and he also has separation anxiety. But that is no problem for Janet. She takes him for walks, spends time cuddling with him, gives him treats and more. I know he is safe in her care.
