About Jamie

38 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Go on your vacation/outing knowing that your dog(s) have a home with our precious Dachshund/Corgi, in a fenced in half acre back yard, plenty of shade, and a deck to sun bathe. Our 3000 sq. ft. smoke free, home is a true doggie paradise! We have a County Park (Buttermilk Falls) just a 1/4 mile down the road. Vet is just 6 mile ride from us. I have a schedule along with my husband that can accommodate your dog(s). We have been caring for dogs all our lives and multiple dogs do not intimidate us. We make sure they are always fed on time, plenty of fresh water, as well as plenty of walks so they can feel relieved. We also love walking with four legged friends as well so they can get their noses rockin' to all our neighborhood has to offer them. We promise we would care for your dog(s) like they were our own!! Please check us out we would love to hear from you.We will only be able to care for small to medium sized dogs (40lbs. or under) since we already have a small dog.

PS We are empty nesters so no worries about little tykes getting in the way.

*Boarding Fee is based on a 24 hour stay, additional fee will be applied if more time is needed. Thanks!

Jamie is simply awesome! Yuwan had a great time in the huge yard. Definitely a first choice for next vacation.
Still the best!
See previous reviews. Jamie is the best!
Again Jamie and Rob are the BEST!! They treat dogs in their care like they were their own. I would not consider leaving my Coco with anyone else!
Jamie is always amazing. Jake loves staying with Jamie and her family!
Jamie was great! She took such good care of my doggie. She sent me lots of updates and pics, which made me feel well at ease about leaving him. I will certainly be using her services again in the future. 5 stars!!
Jamie is always great. Luna LOVES going to Jamie's. Luna doesn't even get sad anymore when she sees us packing suitcases. She gets excited. As soon as we pull up to Jamie's she leaps out of the car and takes off to the back yard. Jamie's home is truly a vacay for our dog.

Jamie Z and her husband Rob are the best!! Coco loves them so much..... I would not think of leaving her with anyone else.
As always Coco had a great stay with Jamie. I would not think of leaving Coco with anyone else...she is the best!!
This was the first time we left our dog with Jamie. She was recommended by a neighbor. We are SO happy to have found her as it was such a great experience for us and our dog. Jamie sent us pictures daily of him playing and sniffing around her large enclosed yard and wrote us to tell us specific details of what he was up to. He was happy and I think would have liked to stay longer! It was the first time we were ever away that I didn't worry about him. We will be definitely be using Jamie whenever we go away.

Wow!! Jamie is the best!! I have been using Jamie for over a year now and I know that my shy girl Coco is always well cared for. She always makes sure all the dogs in her care are looked after, have fun and getting along. Coco loves playing and running leash free with all the other dogs during her stay. I love the photos she sends to calm me, the worried mom. I won't leave my little girl with anyone else!

There is a HUGE difference between someone watching your dog and loving your dog. I knew our dogs were in good hands but of course I still felt bad leaving them until Jamie sent us an update and pictures. The fact that she's willing to squeeze into bed with several dogs who have clearly made her home theirs speaks volumes. Anyone would have anxiety leaving their dog but with Jamie that will quickly disappear. She is a kind generous woman with a loving heart any and every dog would be lucky to stay with her!!! Thank you for making our vacation anxiety free!!!

As always, Jamie did a fantastic job taking care of Mona and set our minds right at ease through the wonderful photos she sent us daily. If you can get at spot with Jamie's pack, take it!
Beany has stayed with Jamie several times. She absolutely loves Jamie. It's such a pleasure to be able to go away and never have to worry. Daily messages with pictures are a treat! Thanks so much Jamie!
I can't say enough positive things about Jamie; she treats our dog as one of the family. Every time I tell Copper he is going to stay with Jamie he gets so excited, his tail starts wagging and he runs to the door. Her home is beautiful; she has a large fenced in yard and a swimming pool that the dogs can swim in (if they love water like Copper does). We are so grateful for the care and TLC she gives our dog. She is truly the best!!! It is our dog's home away from home- not at all like other boarding facilities!

Awesome; what a relief!
My dog has never been happier!
I look forward to going away now! Finally!
Once again, Jamie is just amazing! Bocce and his owners are so happy to have her watch and love him when we are away.
amazing! Im so relieved and happy!!!!
Oh My Goodness. Jamie Z does it again. my dogs are healthy and happy and I received many updates and photos throught our vacation. We give Jamie 100 stars. Jamie provides a loving and safe environment in her home that could NEVER be provided at a kennel. My dogs love her and so do we. I sure recommend her and dogvacay should be proud to have service providers like this in their program. Jamie provides excellent dog care but more importantly, she provides the peace of mind so we can relax and enjoy our trip.

Yet another wonderful experience with Jamie and her pack. Our dog Mona just arrived back and is looking great. We were given lots of updates throughout our trip and as always it was clear that Mona was well taken care of. Jamie is VERY responsible, takes her task VERY seriously, and has always returned Mona to us in good spirits. The only downside is that the secret seems to be out and she is in high demand!

We had a funeral and had to find a place for our 16 year old dog, Bambi in an emergency. Bambi has stayed with Jamie before. Jamie was able to help us out and even though it was just overnight, Bambi had a good time.
Bocce just relaxes and enjoys all the comforts of home at Jamie's.
She is truly amazing! Makes me feel so comfortable and updates me throughout the day. I couldn't be happier!
Jamie was just AMAZING. Our dog was cared for very well and loved while we were away. Thank you Jamie!
I couldn't be happier! She was so attentive and kept me posted all day how Bandit was doing. I was so happy! I feel very lucky!
Jamie is an angel! She provided peace of mind while my husband had heart surgery. She was so accommodating. I just can't praise her enough. I wish I could give her far more than 5 stars! Beany loves staying with her and has become great friends with her dogs Goochie and Bubba. It's like a second home. The pictures she sent me regularly really cheered me up.
Thanks again Jamie!

Once again a fabulous vacation for our Ruby.
Jamie is so accommodating and warm. Her answer is "yes" to every request whether it be drop off, pick up times, special dietary requests or sleeping arrangements. (Ruby likes the security of her crate and Jamie sets it up in her living room). The pictures and updates show you how much fun your dog is having and how content they are. Ruby is so well cared for. Jamie is awesome.

I can't say enough about Jamie. She is so wonderful. Beany has stayed with her several times and never looks back when I leave which is saying a lot because she normally never lets me out of her sight.
My mind is always at ease knowing that Beany is having a great time and is being well taken care of.

Taylor had a wonderful visit with Jamie. We got several texts with pictures everyday so we knew our doggie was doing well. I especially like the fact that anytime I needed to be in contact with Jamie, she got back to me very quickly. Overall, very positive experience!!

Jamie is a true dog lover! She is loving and caring for my shy dog Coco and all of the dogs she is taking care of. I know that Coco is always well taken care of and has a great time when staying with Jamie and her family.
Another great stay for Beany. Jamie was wonderful as always. Beany feels right at home and loves the big yard!
Outstanding. I really believe that Jake becomes a part of Jamie's family. He is always so well taken care of!
Once again Jamie and Rob hosted our dog Jackson with exceptional care and kindness. Thank you Jamie ! Sue and Andy
I was so glad I was able to book Jamie for the day. I needed to have my Sandy in a safe place while I had some work done at my home. Jamie even texted me to come earlier since she thought the weather was going to turn bad any minute. How thoughtful! Needless to say, Sandy had a great time & I was worry free. Thanks Jamie.

As always, Jamie was great with our dog. She is very caring and loving and has the perfect property to allow dogs to play and enjoy each other. He is always happy to be with Jamie and tired when he comes home from all the playing he does while he is there.

Jamie was a great host for our gal Sophie. She gave us great updates with pictures throughout our trip, and we really felt comfortable with her the whole time. She truly cares for the dogs she watches, and it shows. Our dog sophie had such a fun time running all over her large backyard and was wiped out by the time we came to pick her up. It was a great experience.

Always a pleasure to deal with Jamie, and I never ever worry or am concerned about the pooch. My dog always comes home with a relaxed demeanor, and is never traumatized like he was when he stayed at a kennel. My dog is very sensitive, so it is such a wonderful thing to not worry when I have to go away. Even during thunderstorms!

This is Beany's second time with Jamie. She felt right at home immediately. I couldn't be more pleased with the love and attention she gives to Beany.
This is the first time I left Coco with Jamie...or anyone other than a friend and I must say it was a wonderful experience. Coco was welcomed by Jamie, her husband and her 2 dogs. Shortly after I left I received a picture of Coco who adjusted quickly and was so comfortable getting her tummy rubbed! Jamie sent pictures throughout Coco's stay. I can tell that Coco totally enjoyed her romps through their backyard as when we got home she went right to sleep!! Thanks for a great stay Jamie!

Bambi loved her second stay with Jamie and Robert. Once again I got lovely pictures of Bambi out in the great secure fenced in back yard. She seemed to recognize Jamie from her last visit and followed Jamie around. Because Bambi is almost 17 I am nervous leaving her because Bambi is so attached to me. However, I was not as worried as I was the first time.Bambi seemed to enjoy her freedom of being off leash in the back yard. My yard is not fenced so Bambi does not have that luxury at home.Woof woof Jamie!

After yet another prolonged DogVacay stay with Jamie we remain just as impressed as ever (see previous reviews).
We were delighted to have found Jamie. She sent us updates with pictures a couple times each day. It was so comforting to know that Beany was happy and well taken care of. Jamie's dedication truly shows. We look forward to booking another stay in the near future.
Thanks Jamie!

Bambi had a good time at her first doggy vacay in almost 17 years. Jamie has a great enclosed yard and Bambi liked being with Jamie's 2 cute dogs. Jamie sent pictures and notes keeping us up to date on Bambi's progress. I was very worried since Bambi is a senior dog and I did not know how she would do. She seemed to do fine and Jamie was great with her.

I can't say enough about Jamie Z. She's a warm and gentle person to humans, so you can imagine how great she is with dogs. My dog Sandy must have remembered her from the "meet and greet", because as soon as we dropped her off, she whimpered and went willingly and happily to Jamie. While we were away, Jamie sent us updates, with pictures, every day, sometimes more than once a day. I felt so comfortable leaving my Sandy with her, I didn't worry at all about her. Of course, I missed her, but I knew she was in a caring place, with new friends to play with. My husband and I will DEFINETLY book Jamie again when we go away.

Jaime is wonderful! Photos of my dog every day and an activity report daily! He was safe and well cared for. I couldn't ask for more!
Jamie is truly a wonderful caregiver to dogs. She is extremely conscientious and caters to every dog's specific needs. Ruby was on medication and Jamie took care of that and Ruby's fussy eating habits even with other dogs in her care. Jamie is accommodating in every way. We are sooo lucky to have her to watch Ruby when she can't come with us.

I just picked up my dog Molly from Jamie's house for the first time. I can't say enough good things about the experience. Jamie and Robert were so welcoming and they made fast friends with Molly. The first (of many) photos that Jamie sent was of Robert and Molly relaxing on the couch together a few hours after she was dropped off. Thanks Jamie, Robert and your adorable Dachshunds for making it easier to leave my precious dog for a few nights!

You cannot find a better person to care for your dog than Jamie. She has watched my dog, holly rose numerous times over the years and I can go on vacation completely relaxed knowing that holly is happy and in the most loving hands and the most beautiful and comfortable environment. We are so lucky to have found her.

Jamie is wonderful with my dog! Great care! A+++++++!
Our dog stayed with Jamie for a week and we couldn't have been happier with the experience! From the moment we met Jamie, we knew her warm and caring nature would be a great fit for our dog. She really cares about the dogs she takes care of and it shows. We didn't have to worry while we were away which was a welcomed relief. We will definitely use Jamie again and would recommend her to anyone that asked!

Jamie was wonderful with my dog. Sent me photos every day. Told me what he was up to. Just super care!
Thank heaven that I found Jamie through DogVacay! My dog is always cared for with kindness, love and patience. I am never EVER worried or preoccupied when leaving Barley with Jamie. She knows how to deal with dogs, and has respect for their needs. I can't say enough about how great she is when taking care of my dog.

We were thrilled with Jaime and so was our dog Copper. Her home is beautiful and her backyard is a dog's dream come true- big open space for dogs to run and play. Jaime was wonderful about sending pictures of Copper throughout our vacation and texts each day. Before this we boarded our dog at a typical boarding facility and he came back with ear infections and was very unhappy. This was a total different (and amazing) experience for him. He can't wait to go back!!

jamie was wonderful. our dog came home very happy and well taken care of!
I wouldn't leave Jake with anyone else but Jamie. They treat Jake like he is a member of their family. We are so very happy that we found her!
Once again a great experience with Jamie. So accommodating and warm. She is the second mom to our Ruby! She will make sure all your dogs needs are met and take such good care of your dog like it is her own. Updates you all the time. Highly recommend Jamie for peace of mind and top class care!

Jamie and her family have been wonderful to our dog and us once again! We were kept up to date daily and that is so very special. Great photos! Thank you very much!
My four -- 4! dogs had a wonderful time at Jamie's lovely home. I can't imagine a better experience for them. What a great comfort it is to know that when needed, my critters have this fantastic option. Priceless!!
There should be more stars available. We give Jamie the full 5 stars but she should get 100 stars for EACH DAY. Our dogs were SAFE. Our dogs were COMFORTABLE. Our dogs got plenty of sun, fun and exercise. But especially, our dogs had loving care. We received continuous updates, complete with photos, throughout the week to show our pet's status and well being. Her home has a great set-up for the pets including a HUGE fenced in property. Before we met Jamie Z, we were so afraid to have to leave our pets and be able to go away. Now we feel like a giant weight has been lifted off of us that we have found a loving sitter for the dogs we love so much If anyone wants to contact me I will tell you more. I can't say enough good things. GREAT JOB JAMIE Z

This was Ruby's second stay at Jamie Z's five star resort! The huge,fenced-in, immaculate back yard is heaven for dogs and Jamie takes care of them like they are her children. Her family welcomes each dog and plays with them too. She is very flexible, accommodating each dog's needs and gives individual attention to each dog. She made sure our fussy eater ate and then had plenty of energy to enjoy her surroundings even though Jamie had other dogs in her care to occupy her time We feel so relaxed knowing Ruby is so well taken care of. Ruby even came home with a gift from Jamie-so thoughtful! Recommend her 100% Plan on Ruby having another vacation there in a few weeks. Hope she will want to come home afterwards!!...

Jamie watched our dog for a night and it was a great experience for us and our dog! We did a meet and greet first and I knew right from the start how warm and caring Jamie would be with our baby. And Stella loved Jamie upon that first meeting. Jamie sent us updates and pictures of Stella throughout the visit. She has a huge yard that our dog loved running around in! We will definitely be bringing Stella to Jamie's house again!

Jamie is a warm, nurturing, wonderful host.We were a bit last minute as our usual spot was full and she was so accommodating. We were dropping our son off to college for the first time so I was already emotionally fraught and when I had to find a new place for Ruby to stay it was even more stressful. But I should not have worried. Jamie's backyard (fenced in) oasis is any dog's dream come true and her calm, loving nature had both Ruby and me at ease immediately. Jamie sends lots of pictures and updates to keep you posted and is a true animal lover and one heck of a find! She will accommodate any requests you have. She will be our "usual spot" from now on if we are lucky enough to get her.

We left Jackson for 4 days with Jamie and her family and all of us including Jackson were thrilled! Jackson loved the yard. Jamie kept in touch and shared photos which made our trip worry free. Her kindness and caring are exceptional. Thank you so much Jamie! We'll be back soon. Sue, Andy and Jackson Gore.

This was our first time using Jamie Z and DogVacay. It is an absolutely wonderful experience. Jamie took care of Jake as if he were her own. We will be back!
Words can not even express how truly wonderful Jamie is! I was the first reviewer and since then I have had the opportunity and pleasure to leave my precious pup with Jamie for numerous get-a-ways. From long weekends to week long vacations, Jamie has graciously opened her home and takes the best care of Lucy. When I drive to her house Lucy's tail is wagging, mouth wide open with excitement to get there. She runs right into the backyard, kisses Jamie and then runs all around the beautifully fenced in back yard that has become like a second home to her. Jamie consistently sends us pictures and truly ensures that Lucy is well taken care of. If there is another dog that she is watching, she is sure to get the dogs acquainted and she is a true professional dog lover - caregiver. It is so amazing to be able to have the freedom to get away when we want and know that Lucy will be so well taken care of and we go away "worry free".

Wonderful experience! Jamie takes them in like her own and I was never worried about leaving my special guy with her. Will definitely be going back for doggy care since Jamie is amazing through and through. Thanks again, Jamie!
Jamie is an excellent host and takes wonderful care of her animals. She has a loving and gentle way about her and really seemed to care that my dog was comfortable and safe. That made me feel so relaxed to enjoy my own vacation that much more.

I would use her again in a heartbeat and recommend her highly.

I felt so relaxed leaving Delilah at Jamie's house. Before we had even arrived at our destination, Jamie sent us a photo of Delilah just so we knew she was adjusting just fine.

Jamie is an excellent host. She kept in close contact with us so we knew that our dog was safe, comfortable and well cared for.

Her home is immaculate and extremely well suited for 4 legged creatures!

I am so glad to have found such a great place to leave my dog when I'm away.

I recommend her highly.

Thanks Jamie! You are wonderful and a great dog watcher!

Jamie is a great host. She is super friendly and an obvious dog lover. My dog had a great time with her, and spent plenty of time outdoors in Jamie's beautiful fenced in yard.
We could not have been happier with Sali's stay at Jaime's! For the first time, I went on vacation without any concern about how Sali was doing. Jaime sent me photos every day and Sali was loved and cared for as part of the family. Jaime also was able to accommodate our plane schedule and pick up and drop off Sali at our house so when we got home Sali was there waiting for us!! It was perfect and now we have no worries about the next time we go away! Even for just a day! We would recommend Jaime to anyone! Thanks so much Jaime for caring and loving our dog as we do!!

This was Mona's second stay with Jamie and her pack - and it was for an entire month! I continue to be just as pleased with Jamie as I was initially (please see my earlier review). She did an excellent job of staying in touch, catering to my very demanding requests, and taking Mona in as part of the family (as evidenced by the photographs of Mona sitting happily with various k-9 and human members of Jamie's pack). I definitely give Jamie two paws up and if you're looking for an extremely responsible, dog savvy, loving person to take care of your pet, this is the home you're looking for.

I was so lucky to find Jamie on DogVacay! As soon as I went to meet her with Barley, I could see that Jamie is a real "dog lover", and had great instincts with Barley's personality. She had a nice big area for her dogs and Barley to run around, play, or just relax. The house was very dog friendly, and my dog was very comfortable and content there.
When I left, I had no worries, and knew that my boy was in great hands! I will never use a kennel again! :)

Jamie was great with our dog. She clearly loves dogs and she made our lab mix very happy. She has a large fenced yard that the dogs love to play in - we were worried that he wouldn't want to come back home! She and her husband gave him affection and invited him back anytime. She graciously accommodated our travel schedule, and we will definitely use Jamie again.

I am an incredibly picky, demanding, obsessive, dog owner. I drove 30+ minutes from NYC to meet Jamie, Gucci, and Bubba, after spending hours on DogVacay trying to identify a short list of the very best options within an hour radius of my apartment. The effort really paid off. Jamie is a wonderful person to interface with, incredibly dependable, responsible, and dedicated to her dogs (including visiting dogs). She was completely receptive to all of my requests and concerns about Mona's care. Her yard is beautiful and completely fenced. Lawn, organic and pesticide free. Jamie is dog savvy and thoughtful beginning with the initial introduction of the dogs. Her husband and son are also incredibly friendly and provide an added level of warmth and hospitality to dogs and humans alike. Emblematic of the family's generosity and openness to going above and beyond to accommodate their clients, they even brought our dog back to NYC for us! Unbelievable. I would recommend Jamie without hesitation.

We had a wonderful experience with Jamie Z. She is so kind and compassionate and clearly gave our dog as much love as she gives her own. The same is true of her husband. Jamie sent us updates and pictures via text and assured us that our dog was having a great time. This enabled us to have a great vacation and peace of mind knowing that our dog was being very well taken care of. The backyard is wonderful and all 3 dogs (2 are Jamies') enjoyed it together. We highly recommend that if you want a place for your dog to feel loved and cared for the entire time you are away to have your dog stay at Jamie's. We look forward to planning future vacations knowing that we found a wonderful home for our loving dog to stay when we are away.
