About JT

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi. I am an artist and dog lover. In fact, my favorite painting subjects are dogs and you can see some pictures of my dog paintings here on DogVacay.

We raised English Setters when I was growing up, so having dogs around became second nature.

I like staying active and taking dogs for walks. In fact, the overnight rate includes all feeding/water and a nice daily walk/run.

Require additional services like walking, pick up/drop off, bathing, or check ins? Just ask and I'll provide a custom quote!

JT was awesome. He did a great job with my two dogs and one devilish little kitty. He said he enjoyed spending time with them even with the kitten stealing his dinner off his plate and dragging down the hallway.....

It is great to have someone taking great care of our four legged kids in the comforts of their own home.

I am so glad I found the DogVacay site to find JT.

I give JT five stars because of his excellent customer service. This is the first time that I have used DogVacay and was referred to JT by another member. JT was diligent and really took great care of my dog. He touched based with me with photos and texts while I was away which made me feel comforted knowing my pet was well cared for. I highly recommend JT.

I was a little apprehensive as I always am when moving and having to find a new sitter for our dogs. My fears were dismissed as soon as JT met our dogs. They loved him, he kept in touch with us while we were gone and supplied photos of our dogs. He stayed at our home and upon our return, found dishes done, bed made, towels in laundry, garbage taken out..basically he exceeded our expectations. He is friendly, kind, and the dogs seemed very happy when we walked in the door. We will definitely be using him as long as we live in the Boston area. Thank you JT.

JT was great. He worked with our odd schedule we need during the time we were gone. Our puppies seemed very happy to be able to stay at home and not be carted off to a daycare. One of our dogs has a lot of anxiety and she was happy as a little peach when we came home to her. Our house was kept nice and clean. He even washed the sheets! I have and will continue to recommend him because it was a easy and good expericence and we are very picky about where and who we leave our dogs with and I felt immediately at ease from the moment he met them. thank you!

Our dog Maggie has already developed a special place in her heart for JT, after only one night! And we do not know how he did it but JT seems to have better trained Maggie in a couple of areas overnight. Makes us want to hire JT to care for Maggie even if we do not go away! (regardless of the fact that Maggie went back to being Maggie the next day, LOL.)

My dog Lexi had a great time with JT. He took really good care of her attending to all her needs. I will definitely use him again. He's a great guy that truly loves dogs!
This was Rafa's first stay away from home and we couldn't be happier. I received pictures to keep me updated. Great experience.
Oliver had another wonderful stay with JT. He came home home happy to see us, but not overly stressed as he had been at other places. We seemed to have found the best place to leave our dog - truly a home away from home with someone who cares as much as we do. We can't recommend JT enough!

We had an anxiety problem leaving our dog Oliver, an English Springer Spaniel, at Pet-smart Hotel. He would get stressed to the point of becoming physically ill, so we went in search of a different environment on dagvacay.com. We were so lucky to have found JT! He was willing to meet with us first and hear about Oliver's issues. His home is clean, quiet and dog-friendly. We did a trial overnight to see how this would work out. When I left him, Oliver was a little stressed,so JT took him for a long walk where he made lots of friends. He also texted me during the day and sent a good-night photo. When I came to pick up, Oliver was sound asleep on the couch. No stress here!
We are so happy and relieved to have found someone so caring and understanding to care for Oliver when we travel. I highly recommend JT to anyone who wishes for a caring, kind and loving environment for their pet.

Daisy had a great time with JT and our family was able to enjoy our stay in NYC knowing Daisy was well taken care of. We would definitely use DogVacay and JT again Jo-Ann
JT was wonderful for our two furkins, Daisy and Rascal. He kept us informed on how they were doing and was extremely accommodating. He really gets to know the dogs and their routine. Please consider JT for your next boarding!
JT was a great host to Jacko. It was the first time our 6 year old Golden Doodle stayed with a care taker that he did not know. JT sent us photos and emails and Jacko appeared calm and happy upon our return!
We couldn't ask for more and will definitely go back for a visit soon.
Thanks JT!

Our yellow lab appeared to enjoy her time with JT. He took her for walks each day which she needs to exert her pent up energy. JT was very accommodating to our schedule, provided feedback on how she was doing while we were away and overall took good care of our pup. I highly recommend his services!

Seems like Ceasar had a really good time with JT.
JT did a great job. We felt our dog was well cared for and plan to use him again
JT provided the perfect mix of confidence, moderate-tempo energy, and genuine concern for our little ten-pounder. Sent several photos, included comments, all helping to confirm that we made the right decision. Very happy with your company for making this type of service available, and very certain that we (and "Blaze") will be seeing JT again. We simply could not be more satisfied.

JT was a great host for Kemba- took her for long walks, brought in other dogs for her to have a playdate with and also took her to a park near his home. She came back a very happy dog.
JT was excellent and communicative. He kept in touch with me and Gracie, our springer, loves him. JT's home is perfect for Gracie and JT has a kind, gentle way with Gracie.
JT is very kind, dog friendly, reliable and responsible. Having our dog Gracie, an 8 year old springer spaniel, with JT for 4 days and nights allowed us to be totally on vacation and not worry about Gracie. He sent us a couple of pictures and email updates. We highly recommend him.
