About Janet

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a retired school teacher. I am very active and love to walk, garden, exercise, read, and visit with colleagues and friends.
I have always had dogs in my world, although my dear yellow lab, Hannah, has been gone for seven years. I would enjoy taking care of your dog/s in my home.
Although it says I will only take one dog I will take two from the same family. We would arrange a custom quote together.

I was very apprehensive about leaving our golden with anybody other than family. Janet arranged for a meet and greet. I knew immediately that Chelsea would be in good hands.
Janet was awesome. Chelsea loved her. Janet sent pictures throughout the day. I highly recommend her and hope to use her in the future when the need arises. Marilyn B.
If you are in need of a caring, wonderful place for your dog, reach out to Janet! Our only concern is that our dog, Sam, may not want to go home.
Howdy had a great time! Thanks Janet.
I met Janet with my dog for a meet and greet at her lovely home. She immediately made us feel welcome. Her spacious home and fenced back yard is the desired, peaceful setting I've been seeking for my 9 yr old dog. Janet is responsive by text and phone and sent a photo of my dog sleeping a few hours after she was dropped off. She updated me on her activities when I picked her up the next day. I'm thrilled I found Janet and will definitely call on her again!
Janet is a great dog-lover who graciously opened her house to Tiki while I was traveling for business. She brought me great peace of mind by tending to his every need, especially brushing him and making sure, especially during the summer season at the Cape, there were no ticks on him. She was very good in following directions with Tiki's ear meds and provided all the TLC that he needed, even allowing him to sleep in bed with her. She provided long walks daily, a beautiful deck for him to lounge and all the toys his little heart could desire! I highly recommend Janet for your loved one as "the best home" away from home!
As in the past Chewie loves his Auntie Janet. Always has lots of fun.
Like any parent, I was worried leaving my little friend for the first time ever. And with a stranger! Boy, was I wrong! Janet is the best dog sitter in the entire civilized world! She even cooked up some carrots for Lindy after I had mentioned that she likes cooked veggies as a treat! Janet is awesomely conscientious, her house is spotless, and Lindy didn't even seem to be so excited to see us when we came to pick her up. A total A plus recommendation for Janet V!
This is the second time I am doing this review since the first one was misplaced by dogvacay. It was important to me to let people know what a wonderful experience it was for both me and my pet. Lewis is a 12 yr old poodle with many issues. Besides seizures and taking medication twice a day, he has both a little hard of hearing and doesn't see that well. Janet handled these issues like a trooper. I was sent photos of Lewis everyday as well as a little narrative about his activities. When I picked him up he seemed to be very comfortable on her sofa. I would only use Janet again. I know Lewis was well taken care of. Goodbye kennel, hello Janet
Janet is a wonderful lady. She is very kind and very thorough with taking care of pets. Savannah had a nice time there. I think Savannah prefers staying at homes with other dogs to play with, but her stay at Janet's was great nonetheless. Thank you!
As always, Janet was perfect and provided 1-1 attention during Bayla's overnight stay....thank you Janet!
Janet is an absolute sweet heart. She is so awesome with our Shitzui... She is such a natural.. And she loves dogs.. So accommodating and attentive to our dogs needs and routine ... We are so lucky to have found her!! She is an absolute gem...
We can't say enough about how pleased we were to have Janet's dog home care for our two dogs for an entire week. Millie had been with Janet before and was happy to return. Kermit is still a puppy and this was his first time away from us. Janet gave Millie all the cuddle lap time she needed and gave Kermit all the play and exercise he needed.We loved recieving the pictures and updates during the week.When we came to pick up the dogs they were excited to see us but kept running back to Janet they didn't want to leave her wonderful home!
Janet was fabulous! She was very attentive and professional. Our little guy had a great time and was very loved. It was so nice to have peace of mind that he was in good hands while we were away!
I have a Spaniel with lots of energy and personality who is also a cuddly lap dog. Janet did great with him on our first overnight and the fenced-in back yard was a great treat for a pup who is always on a leash. We are very particular about how our dog is cared for and we are very comfortable leaving him with Janet for two weeks this winter.
Janet was awesome, from the meet and greet to our dog's first overnight. She has a wonderful dog-friendly home and yard and from the photos and reports she texted to us during our dog's stay she clearly spoiled our dog as if he was her own. Janet was very flexible with our travel plans and we felt so comfortable with our dog in her care. We are so happy to have found Janet and would not hesitate to have our dog stay with her again!
Janet is the perfect host! Our puppy,Bristol loves her and so do we !! We are thrilled to have found the perfect sitter!
This was Phoenix's first extended stay away from home. We had a test over-nighter the previous month which worked well...Phoenix was excited to see Janet again and went right out to her deck to inspect the yard. Janet kept me updated with photos and notes of their activities. Phoenix even got a few opportunities to go swimming and shed a few unwanted pounds with their long walks. Phoenix's minimal display of enthusiasm at seeing me again speaks volumes!
Janet is a wonderful host. She provides a safe and loving environment and it is so good to know how well cared for our dog is when we are away. In addition, we really enjoy receiving the photos and texts that she sends too!
Janet was great from the beginning. She was very helpful in answering our questions initially and flexible in scheduling an initial meet and greet. Our dog Mocha stayed with her for 3 days. We got daily pictures and updates of their walks together and playtime. When we picked her up Mocha was clearly happy and well taken care of. She was running around the house and I knew she had a good time. We were very glad to find such a loving home for her for the time we were away and have no hesitation about asking Janet to take care of her again the next time.
I would highly recommend Jenet to anyone looking to have their dog's vacay in a relaxing compassionate environment. It was wonderful having out pups stay win Janet. I loved receiving pics each day and updates on how they spent their days while we were away. Janet's home was truly a home away from home.
I left Phoenix with Janet knowing she'd be well taken care of. After having first gotten acquainted at the meet-and greet, Phoenix was excited to see her again and rushed into the house to revisit the surroundings. They enjoyed long walks and deck-time relaxing. Phoenix is looking forward to a return visit next month...
Janet took care of my fur babies as if they were her own and sent me pictures and even a video. Glad I could enjoy my vacation knowing they were in great hands.
Macie had a great visit with Janet. We could tell that Macie felt right at home after seeing the pictures Janet sent us of Macie lounging on her special blanket. We think Macie and Janet will become good friends.
