About JP

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We love dogs, but my daughter is in LOVE with dogs (and all animals, for that matter). She is naturally very good with them.

We take care of your dogs as a family. My daughter is very responsible member of the caretaker team and she takes her duties very seriously. In addition, she is doing something she loves while learning the life skills needed to run a business as well as teach her about saving money for her future. (We invest the money in stocks of companies that she likes.)

We don't have any dogs at home, yet. (We promised her a dog when she turns 10.) So, in the meantime we take care of your dog(s) like their our own. We will only take care of one dog (or one owner's set of dogs) at a time.

We have a huge backyard next to a big park. Lots of friendly fun dogs around us too that we take care of and play with regularly.

We promise that your dog will become a part of our family while you are away and that you won't find a better home for your dog while you are away. The only risk to you is that your dog might not want to come home!

We have references and recommendations upon request.

** Dogs must be picked up before noon on day of pick-up, unless arranged otherwise. If your dogs need to be picked up considerably later than noon, we will charge for an extra day. (DogVacay bills per night only...)

** Please note: My wife and I work full-time, so we prefer dogs that are used to staying at home OR are small and mellow enough to come to my office during the day. Please let us know if your dog(s) have a serious case of separation anxiety or if they tend to be aggressive toward strangers, kids or other dogs. We have a 3 year old daughter, so your dog must be very gentle and comfortable with grabby little toddlers!

JP and his two adorable daughters are fantastic! Our dog Gucci spent a weekend with them and I can tell he had a wonderful time. They sent us photos/updates throughout the weekend and I could see my Gucci very happy and comfortable with them. I’m sure Gucci had a wonderful time running around their big backyard. We will gladly use their service again!

JP and his daughter were so wonderful with our skiddish cat while we were away. They came over daily to spend time with her, love on her, clean her litter box, fill her food bowl, and give her treats. When we returned home, we could tell she was very well taken care of. Of course she was happy to see us, but we could tell she had been given much attention and affection. We will definitely be using JP and family again!

We were very happy with KC' s stay with JP and the family. As far as we could tell she had a good time and we feel she was well taken care of. They kept in touch with us and sent us some wonderful pictures.
This family is so loving towards our dogs, its such a relief to know my dogs are being well taken care of.
Best family to watch your beloved pet! Great one on one care, they are my first choice whenever I need a family to watch my dog. My dog can be skittish at first but JP and his family make sure he's comfortable with them and by the end of the stay, my dog acts like they are his second family. Thanks for taking great care of Yoshi! Great peace of mind knowing he's in good hands.

As always, this is Emma's favorite home away from home.
Emma always has a blast! She got to run and play at the park. I think she was actually a little sad to come home. :-)
As always JP and family provide a great second home for Yoshi! They are really good with handling Yoshi and making sure he is comfortable. Thanks for loving him like he is your own! :)
As always another great stay for my dog Suki who was in good hands. Sienna and her family made Suki feel special and she loved her time with them. She had a ton of play time and was tired upon returning home. Thanks!
I felt very comfortable about Molly being with this family. They welcomed her and I know she was taken great care of! I am a crazy mom and always checked in but JP sent pics to calm me ;) For sure will have Molly stay with them again next time we are gone!

First time using this service - great experience! We love being able to have him stay with a family that clearly loves dogs. Will definitely use them again!
I've boarded my dogs before at Wags and Wiggles and the Spaw. I hated Wags and Wiggles and liked the Spaw, but wanted to have my dogs stay at a home so they would feel less abandoned. JP, Siena, Jenny, and June are great. My dogs seemed comfortable with them and came back in the same condition I left them (which is more than I can say about Wags and Wiggles). Just as important, my dogs seemed happy and well cared for. I was a nervous nelly, but JP was patient and responsive to all my texts. I will be using their services again for a longer stay and hope my babies will want to come back home with me!

It's always hard to leave our BB but when we leave her with JP and his family, we know she will be well taken care of. Their house is dog friendly with a very spacious backyard, which we know BB loves. The girls give BB lots of love and play time which is greatly appreciated since BB has alot of energy. She always comes home exhausted! Thank you again for watching our BB!

Thank you so much for taking care of our 2 dogs. Not only did they received a lot of TLC, they were given a bath and brush too. Our dogs smells good and clean when we got it back. We will definitely will bring them back again.
We couldn't have been happier that our Whippet spent the weekend with this family! They are super sweet and it was clear immediately that they love dogs and are great with them. The house is large, warm and extremely dog friendly/comfy. The backyard is both fenced and wide open so it's the perfect dog playground. And, the park that borders their home is big, quiet and ideal for dog walks. We will definitely ask them to care for our dog again!

Siena has taken care of our dog Sprout on three occasions and always does a great job. Sprout was excited to see Siena when we dropped her off for her last stay (tail wagging), and was very tired when we picked her up. We know Sprout had a lot of fun because a tired dog is a happy dog. We will have Siena take care of Sprout again and highly recommend her.

JP and his family always take great care of our dog, Sprout. She has stayed with them 3 separate times now and was actually wagging her tail when we dropped her off most recently. Sprout is treated like part of the family and has a home away from home with JP. Thank you!!!

I scheduled a meet-and-greet with JP and Sienna. They were really nice and excited to meet Suki. I requested a 3-day weekend for Suki to come stay with them. Communication was easily done via text or messaging through DogVacay. I was confident that Suki would be in good hands.

There is a park nearby their home and Suki received plenty of exercise. She was completely wiped out when I took her home which is great since it's hard to tire out a shiba inu. Suki had a great time. I hope to be able to leave Suki with them again in the future. Thank you so much for taking such great care of her.

Thanks again for taking such great care of Yoshi! His anxiety is again better after spending time with your family. It's obvious he loves Sienna and is comfortable staying with you guys. :)
The whole family was very personable and made us feel very comfortable about leaving our dog in a new environment. They took their time to know our dog and was very responsive to our requests. I would definitely use them again.
Thanks for taking such great care of Yoshi and for making him a part of your family! Knowing that he was looked after so well gave me peace of mind. Loved the pictures of him & the girls - we definitely consider your family his second home!
