Very good
Riley's stay was indeed pawesome! She appeared to have a great time there and was super pooped at the end of the day - getting in some good play time with other dogs and even a hike! Jayne and Kirk were great hosts and I would definitely have Riley stay with them again.

Monte enjoyed his stay! Thank you Jayne & Kirk!
Jayne and Kirk were so great and easy to work with. Our pup had a blast staying with them, and it was comforting to know that she was in such experienced hands while we enjoyed our time at Mt. Snow. We'll definitely use them again!
Another great experience. Responded to me quickly and was very accommodating to taking Olive in. Made me feel at ease to leave her and Olive seemed very at home when I came to pick her up. This was the second time Olive stayed with Jane and Kirk and I would continue to use them for my future trips out of town. I highly recommend leaving your pet with this couple, they will be in great hands.

Ellie had great time! Thanks!
Tucker had a great time! This is the most important thing, but I have to say Jayne and Kirk were super to us, Tucker's people too:) They are very flexible with drop off and pick up, the house is very clean and comfortable and the yard is perfect for lots of exercise. Overall a great experience!

I can't recommend Jayne and Kirk highly enough. They love dogs and provide a wonderful home environment for their canine guests. I was really pleased that they limit the number of guests they take at one time to make sure that the house is calm. They looked after Lucky (our Lab) so well and she came back fit and healthy and happy. Huge backyard and daily snow shoeing trips through the woods. Jayne sent frequent photos.

We ended up so pleased with our experience that we extended Luck's visit twice. At each drop off Lucky was eager to rejoin the household. There is no doubt in my mind that Lucky had a fabulous time. I can't help worrying now that its more fun with Jane and Kirk than at home with us!

We will certainly be back.

Our dog, Lake, had a great time! Thank you so much Jayne for the pictures you sent during her stay. We will definitely use your services again.
Very accommodating and great place for Stella. Already looking to add new dates.
Jayne and Kirk and family did an above expectation job. I have already recommended your/their service to two friends. What a wonderful way to not put Rylee in jail while I was away. THANK YOU ALL! Marv
Maddy had another wonderful stay with Kirk and Jayne. She made a new dog friend that we understand provided a lot of opportunity for her to run around and take advantage of their open space. When we arrived she was very happy to see us, but just as happy to run back to Kirk for a scratch behind her ears. What more could we ask for? We are better able to enjoy our time away knowing how well she is cared for and that she is functioning as a part of their family.

Our dog always has a great time with Jayne and Kirk! She now recognizes the house when we pull into the driveway and has no qualms about being away from home. She enjoys the playtime and attention she receives and returns home tired and happy!
Well, first off, Jayne was so warm and welcoming not only to Coda but us, his humans, when we came to drop him off. This was Coda's first stay out side of family and close friends and our grown daughter was so anxious. Jayne gave us a tour of their home and the warm and cozy living room that Coda and the other friendly boarder would hang with the family and sleep. Their yard is huge and beautiful and Coda and Eli had a nice romp before we left. When we left Coda was so happy and so was my daughter. I knew that I too would be able to enjoy my weekend too.
Then when, the next day, they sent a photo! Well, that was just the icing on the cake. Coda looked as content as he does at home.
When we picked him up he was happy and comfortable. He was happy to see us but he also was just plain happy. Whatever went on at Jayne and Kirk's was great! We would definitely return the next time we're in Dover.

Great location and very friendly people.
Great experience! Would definitely use them again!
love it! Will be visiting again for a doggy overnight
5 stars! my dog loved her stay there :)
Thank you for taking such great care of Bodie!! We will definitely be in contact with you again if we need a good temporary home for Bodie while we're in the area.
Pepper has stayed with Jayne and Kirk several times before. He loves staying at their house and is very well cared for.
Thank you so much to Jayne and Kirk and their family for watching our very hyper Weimaraner for the week. She usually gets very anxious away from her puppy parents and she seemed at ease and happy at Jayne and Kirk's house. If we're ever in the area again, I would definitely contact them or recommend them to anyone traveling to Vermont.
Thanks, again! Harper is still catching on sleep after her exciting week. :)

Jayne and Kirk took wonderful care of my girl and I don't think I could have found anyone better. They had no problem with her special diet and did everything to make her comfortable. They took her on a bunch of wonderful activities, and the photos they sent me were great! I highly recommend Jayne and Kirk when you need someone to watch your fur baby for any amount of time. A literal dog vacation!

Another great week end for Megan's stay with Jayne + Kirk while we skied, knowing she was having as much fun as we were!
We had a great experience with Jayne and Kirk! They were very accommodating with our last minute needs. They loved our puppy and I know he had a great day. They were also very helpful with information about Mt Snow, as we had never been there before. All in all, we couldn't have imagined a better experience. Thank you!

We met Jayne upon arrival to West Dover, VT and immediately knew she was a dog lover. Everything she said in our initial conversation made us feel comfortable leaving our dog, Willy, in her care. The set up at her home, both inside and outside, was very dog friendly. Despite all the snow they had, the dog runs and play areas were already well prepared and very inviting. We knew Willy would have a wonderful time there and he did! We were so grateful to have found someone in the area to take such great and loving care of him. I would highly recommend Jayne and Kirk to anyone and we plan to use them again anytime we vacation in that area in the future. Thanks so much!

Jayne and Kirk were very flexible and easy to work with and my dog was obviously happy and well cared for when I picked him up. What more can you ask for? Thank you!
Beautiful setup and property, perfect for what we needed. Jayne and Kirk were very quick to reply, and took great care of our puppy while we were skiing.
I am new to the area and always had family watch my dog Olive, when I had to go out of town. I been wanting to plan a trip but was very hesitant to find someone I didn't know to watch Olive especially since she is a mini Dachshund and I was worried about her being unsupervised outside, since we are new to the countryside. I came across Kirk and Jayne on DogVacay and decided to see if they had any availability for the dates that I would be going away and they responded to me immediately answering all my questions and concerns. I decided to go on and have them watch Olive while I would be out of town. I was so worried before dropping her off, hoping I was putting her in good hands and couldn't have been happier with my decision. I pulled up and came to a beautiful fenced in yard and Kirk came out to greet me and Olive and really put me at ease before going on my trip. I spoke with him half way through and was told Olive was doing good and that I had nothing to worry about. When I picked her up at the end of her stay she was very happy and seemed to be having lots of fun. Kirk showed me how he had made paths in the snow for the dogs to run around and play in since the snow was so deep at this time and told me Olive was having a ball in there with another dog during her stay. I took Olive home and even though she was happy to see me she seemed to be missing being at Kirk and Jayne's so I assume she had a good time and I felt very relieved to know she was taken care of while I was away. I would recommend them to anyone and if I need go out of town I would love if they could watch Olive again.

Loved the photo updates! Returning for sure :)
our dog loved it and so did we! easily 5 stars and we'll definitely be back :)
Jayne gave prompt message return on trying to book something last minute over the holiday - worked out great! If your dog has the energy for socializing and free play - its the place to go!
I am so grateful to Jayne, Kirk and family for taking wonderful care of my 4-year old bulldog. They sent photos throughout his stay, took him on snow shoeing excursions and were gracious with my "worried mommy" phone calls. I will return.
Great experience. Very friendly and easy to work with.
Jayne and Kirk were fantastic! They were very accommodating on short notice, and our 8 month old Weimeraner slept the whole way home. We already have reservations to come back! Thanks Jayne and Kirk!
As always, our dog was well taken care of by Jayne and Kirk. She was scheduled for surgery the week after her stay, and Jayne and Kirk were very acommodating with her restrictions. Hopefully next time she visits she'll be able to run and play again!
Our dogs had a great time with Jayne and Kirk. As a result they slept the entire 5 hour drive home. We got a picture of the dogs on the first day but not the second. The reason for 3 stars and not 5 is that I didn't feel that Jayne and Kirk were very friendly and welcoming. More matter of fact and not too personal.

Jayne and Kirk were very flexible and easy to work with, especially since we booked fairly last minute. I could tell Oliver had a great time and played a lot with the other dog at the house by how exhausted he was the next day. I would definitely use them again if we are in the area during ski season.

Maddy came home raving about her visit with Kirk and Jayne again and asking when she can go back. Makes us feel good that when we are away she is happy, relaxed, and having as much fun (if not more!) than we are.
I needed to board my dog, Suki, in the Mount Snow/ West Dover area for just 1 night while I attended a family wedding in the area. Jayne responded immediately to my initial inquiry about availability.

Jayne and Kirk were the perfect solution, since they board in their home and Suki wouldn't be contained in a kennel or cage-like structure. The experience was great and stress-free. I'll use them again if I'm ever in the area.

Our dog seemed very happy when we picked her up. Nice backyard to run and play.
As usual, we only have great things to say! Pepper had a good time and best of all we don't worry when he stays with Jayne & Kirk.
Soco had a great stay yet again! He's been asleep since we got home!
We really enjoyed seeing photos of Kirk playing with the dogs; they looked like they were right at home. Thank you for taking such good care of our babies for us!
Once again, our dog had a great time with Jayne and Kirk. We appreciated the photos they sent periodically during our time away which let us know our dog was enjoying herself.
Soco had a great 2nd stay! Thank you!
Soco seemed to have enjoyed himself very much! He came home and immediately went to sleep!
Our dog Ayra had a great time - I can tell because she's wanted to do nothing but nap since I picked her up! Jayne was very communicative throughout the process, and even sent us a note the first day to let us know our pup was doing fine (something you always wonder once you leave). We would definitely recommend Jayne and Kirk.

When we arrived Maddy was happy to see us, but very content to go right back to Jayne and Kirk so they could pet her too. Sign of a dog who is completely comfortable in her settings.
Jayne and Kirk were fantastic! Duke, Raisin, and Gunner came home happy and tired - couldn't ask for better! I know they got lots of outside time, as Jayne sent me pictures while we were away. They also made sure Gunner got her pills. We felt completely at ease while we were gone knowing that our pups were in good hands and getting lots of attention. If we go away again, we will be sending them back to Jayne and Kirk :)

My husband and I were looking for a weekend getaway to Mount Snow and wanted to bring our dog Walle who loves road trips. It's difficult enough to find a pet friendly lodging that will be able to accommodate us while we are out riding the mountains most of the day. We were fortunate enough to find Jayne and Kirk for Walle's weekend getaway. Our dog had a great time hanging out with Jayne, Kirk and Brittany who are absolutely warm and friendly.

Jayne and Kirk were great with our pup, Charlotte. It was nice to know she was just around the corner.

They gave frequent updates and even took her snowshoeing! We would definitely use them again when in Dover, I'm sure Charlotte wants to go back now.

Kirk also had some great recommendations for things to do around town. We highly recommend!

Always a little nervous to leave our dogs (really our other two children) with anyone, especially strangers. But all of those worries were quickly alleviated. Jayne sent messages and pictures during the stay, which relaxed me. Both dogs seemed to enjoy their stay and like most of the other reviews state, they were pooped when we picked them up! We would definitely use Jayne and Kirk again if we visit the Dover, VT area!

Nico and Nala were very well taken care of. Nico had some unexpected medical issues 2 days before they were to stay with Jayne and Kirk and they dealt with them just fine. It was lovely to get regular updates and photos of them making themselves very comfortable!

My Frenchie Monte had a blast! Jayne took him snowshoeing (he was bare pawed ;) and he made new pupster friends. I could ski and not worry about my baby.
I dropped off Denali and Lucky on Friday afternoon at Jayne and Kirk's home with some skepticism! I wondered if they really allowed my dogs to stay in their home? I thought that this arrangement had to be to good to be true!

Well sure enough, it's that good and that true! I received a picture the first night of both my dogs resting comfortably on the kitchen floor! They both looked so peaceful!

I received an email asking if the dogs could have soup bones and if Denali could go out and snow shoe with Jayne! All I was thinking was that my dogs would never leave Jayne and Kirk's home!
I was quickly put at ease and never worried once about the dogs the entire weekend!

I picked up the dogs on Monday morning and they were happy to see me and I was able to meet Jayne and Kirk! Jayne and Kirk are lovely, warm people and I would leave my dogs with them again and again!

Thank you to the hosts for a wonderful weekend and for keeping my dogs safe and comfortable!

Dakota had a great time! She is home now and sleeping so I'm sure she had a lot of play time! Jayne and Kirk were kind and kept in touch with us through out Dakotas stay! Thank you :)
They were wonderful with Bear!
Another great stay for Ranger with Jayne and Kirk! He got to run around with two other labs while we were out and came home all tuckered out; which is perfectly fine with us!
My two pups were extremely happy at Jayne and Kirk's; there was lots of room to run around in, and other dogs to play with. Jayne and Kirk were also very accommodating when I needed to extend the Vaycay by a day, and sent several charming photos during the week. It's so reassuring to see the dogs having fun even when I'm not there! Highly recommended!

Repeat customers - the best endorsement! Our two dogs came home happy and energized after a long weekend of fun on the farm. Thank you Jayne and Kirk for making it a carefree vacation for both family and pets.
Our two dogs had a great stay. Jayne & Kirk had both clear command of the dogs and a caring demeanor. The dogs were happy and comfortable. We would definitely use their services again and recommend them enthusiastically.
Maddy has just returned from another stay with Jayne and Kirk and she is happy and tired: the sign of a wonderful time. Their caring approach and commitment to exercise and play time and to her staying relaxed and adjusted are just some of the reasons we feel so comfortable with her there. Maddy is on vacation while we are!

Jayne and Kirk were wonderful with our 2 year old Australian Shepherd. We were out of town for ten days and they did a wonderful job of following his diet and watching his hot spot he had developed on his elbow before we left town. They were flexible on the pick up and drop of times which was a relief since our flights were delayed coming back into town. Our dog was able to socialize with at least four other dogs while he was with Janye and Kirk and is still tired (in a good way) from his visit with them. I could tell that both host and hosted had enjoyed their time together.

Maddy had a great time again. She is tired and will spend time today recovering from her vacation at Jayne and Kirk's! It is comforting to be away knowing that she is in a good and caring home being well taken care of. And Brittany is the perfect little hostess too, sharing her things with Maddy and not minding four more paws in her space.

Thanks to everyone at "When in Dover, We'll Take Rover".

This was our first time leaving our 5 month old puppy Nola with someone other than family. We were a little nervous on the drive up but Jayne and Kirk were great and by the time we left we knew she was in good hands. When we picked her up on Sunday she was one happy and tired pup! We would definitely recommend Jayne and Kirk and hope to use them again someday.

Maddy got in the car after we picked her up and asked us when we were planning another trip just so she could go back! She's a lucky dog to get to stay with them and we are fortunate and appreciative "parents".
Jayne & Kirk are wonderful! Our "fur baby" Dakota felt right at home. She received excellant care and attention. Her week was filled with lots of play time and snow shoeing. Dakota promises next time Jayne, she'll let you walk in your snow shoes and not run in them ;-) We felt very comfortable leaving Dakota with them and didn't have any worries while we were away. It's so comforting knowing your "fur babies" are in such good hands. Dakota enjoyed playing with Brittany and the cat. She made friends and enjoyed her play time with the Beagle that visited while she was there. We highly recommend Jayne and Kirk and thank them so very much for the wonderful care & love given to our Dakota girl.
Bruce, Michele & Dakota

This was our second time sending our dog Zoe( who is 6 months old) to Jane and Kirk. It was over the holiday break on New Years Eve day at around 3:00. Jane called me (Laurie Johns wife) that something seemed wrong with Zoe. They were amazing how they helped her. Jane called more then a few Vets until she found one that was open but closing with in the hour. Kirk rushed Zoe over to the Vet waited with her until the Vet checked her out. Kirk called me from there to let me know how she was. They took such good care of her like she was there own dog. We were so grateful and feel so lucky we have such wonderful and caring people to watch our dog. And thankfully Zoe was okay.

If anyone is looking for doggie care this is the best place for your furry family member. Our dog shadow was so well cared for and got tons of attention and exercise, i must say Jayne and Kirk are great, I will be using them again in the future, Plus we got great photos of shadow at play. Thanks again for making us have peace of mind while we where hitting the sloaps.

Jayne and Kirk took great care of our dog Zoe.
Jayne and Kirk did a great job with our dog Zoe. We plan on using them again. If you are planning on being in the Mount Snow area and need a place to keep your dog; I would recommend Jayne and Kirk
Maddy had a wonderful time staying with Jayne and Kirk! We found it incredibly reassuring to have her in a home where she was with a family like ours. Receiving pictures a couple of times let us stay connected as well. Maddy returns in two weeks and we have full confidence she will enjoy herself. What a lovely location they have to host our four-legged family members.

Jayne & Kirk were great and they take good cae of Pepper. We are happy they are close and available. We will certainly use them again.
This was my first time using this service and I was a bit worried but Jayne and Kirk were WONDERFUL! They took the time to get right back to me and when I arrived gave me the tour of their house and their big back yard, which was a big hit with Finnegan. They also sent me 2 pictures while I was away so I can see how much fun he was having.

I would return to their gracious hospitality anytime!!

Jayne and Kirk were great. Pepper had a good vacation and I hope he will be able to go back when we go away again.
