About John

60 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home and live in a quiet established neighborhood in town. Walking distance to many trails, dog park, and neighborhood walks. Pets will have the run of the back of the house, sunny deck, and fenced back yard. Your rules, feeding and behavior, will be respected and reinforced where and when ever possible. I rarely have more than three dogs so that I can enjoy them. I don't offer 24 hour coverage because I find I need to shop every now and then or run an errand but I do work from home and am here almost all the time. I think I am about 23/7 or 22/7.

I prefer well behaved house dogs because I don't have a large outdoor space and I live in a quiet neighborhood. Dogs that bark, chew, dig, or jump fences are probably not a good fit here. Dogs that love to lay in the sun, listen to music, enjoy a back rub, wag their tail, share a toy, take a walk or play gently, are always welcome when there is room. My DogVacay Calendar doesn't show private clients who stay with me..... so it is often smart to inquire for the specific dates you need.

John is such a great doggie host! Not only is he close to home, but he is warm and friendly both with us as and our Rufus. Rufus was able to come and go from the back yard to the house which he loves. The house and yard are safe and comfortable. John asked all of the right questions when we dropped off; feeding, whether he could jump a fence, snacks, etc. There was plenty of room for his crate which he loves. I'd definitely use John again when we go on vacation.
John watched my dog for 10 days and allowed me to relax on vacation because I new my dog was in good, safe hands. John's house is perfect for my small, mellow dog. I will definitely book again with John.
John was fantastic, we could not have found a more perfect person to care for our dogs during our 2 night stay in Sebastopol for our wedding. He was so accommodating and trustworthy from the start. He was so kind to pick up our dogs after the ceremony, made our lives MUCH easier!
Thank you!
