About Jane

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We can't wait to take care of your dog! We are an active couple with flexible schedules and one of us will be around most of the time to keep your dog company. We have a great front and back yard, love to go for walks in our rural neighborhood, and love to go for hikes in nearby Harriman State Park. We have two kids, a 3 year old girl and a 5 year old boy, who love dogs. They know how to be gentle when that's necessary, and they know how to keep active dogs busy.

We accept one dog at a time, unless you have two pets in your family, so your pet(s) will have individual care.

About us: Michaela is a chef that runs her own business and often works from home, and Jane is a farmer who farms down the road from the house. We moved to the area from Manhattan in May 2015 to start our farm. We recently lost our 15 year old sweet Wheaten Terrier, and we have lots of dog love to share. If your dog is older and needs special attention, we have so much patience and can go the extra mile. If your dog is younger and needs lots of exercise, we will go on lots of walks and spend time playing. We walk dogs at two local animal shelters, and we have experience working with dogs with all kinds of personalities. Jane grew up with a Shitzu and Michaela grew up with Irish Wolfhounds, so we love all different sizes of dogs!

About our home: We live in a two story duplex with a front and back yard. We are happy to have your dog sleep in our room if that is what they're used to. There are lots of dogs in the neighborhood if your dog likes social time. If your dog is well trained and likes spending time outside, they can join Jane at the farm.

24/7 supervision may be available if necessary. Talk to us ahead of time and we can let you know if that's an option. But any dog that stays with us will have, at the bare minimum, lots of attention and love.

We can negotiate on price for longer visits and for visits in the winter (when we're not so busy with the farm!), so talk to us if you need it.

Our dog Tia had a great visit with Jane and her family. It was a well kept house in a nice quiet and safe location. The two children at the house were used to dogs and well behaved and seemed to enjoy playing and walking her. Tia felt right at home and we will use Jane and her family again.
If you want the same kind of loving care you give your dog, Jane is the perfect caretaker. She gives personal care to each pet. Jane follows your instructions and sends you wonderful pictures that make you see how well your dog is adapting. She is willing to cater to all of your dog’s needs. Most importantly, Jane understands that your dog is an important family member, so she treats your pet as if it is part of her family. We could never go away and leave our dogs for fear of neglectful care, but that has changed now that we have found Jane. If you leave your dog with Jane, you can rest assured that he/she will be protected and loved! We are so fortunate to have found this wonderful caretaker.
Jane and Michaela took excellent care of my dogs and I had complete confidence in them. They kept in touch and sent pictures of the dogs doing many fun things. I will definitely leave them again with Jane and Michaela.
We feel very grateful that we found Jane and Michaela through Dog Vaca!! Our dog Chloe stayed with them for five days while we were away and she was taken care of and loved. They kept her active with walks and outings. We were very happy to receive texts and pictures from them. It was a great option for dog care while we were away. Thank u so much for a wonderful service!!

We took our dog Cyber to Jane and Michaela.......she is a young, active, loving dog who needs lots of exercise and attention.... When we returned from our drip we were thrilled with how Cyber looked and acted.... she was happy, a bit tired (from the exercise) ,and very comfortable and content in their home. We as dog parents were very comfortable with the time Cyber spent in their care. We recommend them highly, and will definitely be using their services in the future..... Debby and Minerva
There are no better caregivers for my dog, Scarlett, than Michaela and Jane.
If dogs could talk our boy Tony would say he had such a great time with Jane & Michaela. He loved the outdoor walks & playtime with his new friends. We were so comforted knowing he was in good hands. He is looking forward to his next visit. Thank you both.
Jane and Michaela were outstanding and dedicated caregivers to my dog, Scarlett Lee. The meet and greet was helpful because I was able to share some insights about Scarlett's daily schedule and behaviors while giving Scarlett a chance to check out the house and meet her new friends. Jane and Michaela sent updates and photos to me, the overly nervous mom. (this was Scarlett's first time away from home) As a result of their efforts and the great "vibes" in their home, I felt relieved knowing Scarlett was being cared for by such loving, knowledgeable and responsible women. My pup is tired and relaxed after her 2 practice overnights, and I believe she will be very excited to return for a longer stay next month! Thank you so much Michaela and Jane!
Once again we had Michaela and Jane sit our Yorkie Bennie. He is always so happy when we pick him up, but not because he is happy to see us but because he is happy where he just vacationed. They taught him a few tricks and he was so happy to show us what he learned. I cannot say enough about these wonderful ladies.
These two girls are the best sitters anyone can have.We met the day before to get aquanted and I knew from that point on we were getting the best care for my 13 year old labradoodle Dublin.I always felt a little uneasy leaving him in a kennel.Now that he is older and needs special care I will no longer leave him in a kennel.These girls were very nice and paid attention to every detail.I would use them again in a heartbeat. THE BEST!!!!
Can't say enough about how grateful I am that my boy Tony was cared for by Jane and Michaela. He spent a day and night in loving hands and hopes to go back again very soon. Thank you and Happy Holidays, Sheila & Tony Lowney
We have had problems in past with boarding Murphy. Not that he is a problem dog but he is very strong (stubborn) and doesn't like other dogs. So when we decided to go away for thanksgiving, we started the search for a place for Murphy. My mother in-law suggested Dog Vacay. I came across Jane and Michaela and requested a meet. The rest is history.
We couldn't be more happy knowing that Murphy was with Jane and Michaela. We felt very comfortable leaving Murphy with them. They both made Murphy feel very welcomed, we could tell by the pictures they sent! ;-)
So happy to have met these two.
Thank you so much Jane and Michaela!
See you again soon!
How lucky we were to find Jane and Michaela to care for our 6 y.o. Yorkie Bennie. While we were on vacation so was Bennie. He went on hikes, visited with their chickens and also got to sleep in bed. From the very first time we met at our meet & greet I knew they would take very good care of him. I knew that they would provide a very loving and happy experience. When we picked him up he acted like he would have preferred to stay longer. I think Bennie made new friends. I highly recommend Micheala and Jane to care for your dog.
