About JIM

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I love animals and have had dogs, cats and horses all of our lives. My wife volunteered at our country vet's office for a while but, most importantly, we took in stray/unwanted dogs and cats, puppies and kittens for the small town in Missouri where we lived. We gave all of the animals vet care as needed, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, gave dogs basic training and re-homed all the animals with a 100% success rate.

We have now moved back home to Colorado so no longer fill the Missouri town's stray animal needs but we currently take care of family and friends' dogs when asked and, of course, our DogVacay pups.

We have a well-mannered, sweet-natured Collie/Sheltie mix, Dakota, and 3 cats.
All of our critters have current vaccinations and all are happy to share their home with others.

All dogs must be house trained. All dogs must be spayed or neutered. All dogs must have current vaccines - Rabies, Bordetella (kennel cough) and DHLP (Distemper, Parvo and Influenza).

Dogs boarded overnight must be picked up by noon the morning of their departure. If not, a daycare fee will be charged. If picked up after 6pm on the day of their departure, an overnight rate will be applied.

Sentence or two review? Won't work. Jim has taken care of our Collie/Sheltie Dakota and our little Sheltie Austen many times in the past year and I would never use anyone else. I'm one of those mamas - I know, sickening - that is terrified of leaving my dogs. But ya know, you just have to get away sometimes and they're too big for the airplane on-board crate. I had a tiny Maltese once.....

So, if you're new to Dog VaCay or just looking around, I really think that you'll like Jim and his wife Jana. Have no fear, your babies are indulged when my patience would have long run out. They have that gorgeous big yard just made for dogs, walks are done far more faithfully for mine than at home. They're also meticulous with vitamins or any extras you might need. I had to lug a crate over for my shy Collie to hide in but he didn't even need it there..... As I said, I tried several situations but Jim's is where my dogs always stay.

We've been using Jim for a year or more now, and don't always remember to leave a new review. Our dogs love going to Jim's and, in fact, one rescue Collie we have appears to have decided he would like to stay with them most of the time. So we are all fast friends, they still watch our Austen the Sheltie whenever we are out of town and will always be our first choice for any new family members in future.

New note: future has arrived, we have welcome Kaley into our home and she will be staying at Jim's whenever we need doggie watching. Jim has watched our pets many times now, we are become old friends.

Snow had a wonderful stay with Jim and Jana! They took excellent care of her and we will definitely have her stay with them again!
The few times I've left Barlow with Jim and his wife, I've left knowing that he was in good hands. He's walked daily, he's got friends to play with and he's always happy to see them when go back. Thanks Jim!
