When you're on vacation or need to be away they can be having fun, fun, fun...
If you’re anything like us, you have an incredible connection with your dog(s) and when you’re out of town, you want to make sure they’re with someone who will love them just as much as you do. Knowing they are having fun (maybe even more than you are) can help you relax and enjoy your own time away.
To provide your pet with a complete vacation experience while you are unable to be with them and to love and care for them ... Just like Home!
Just like Home
There are many things about Just like Home that make it unique and better than any other boarding facility. We are truly one of a kind. When your dog vacations at Just like Home, their time is theirs to enjoy while you are away. Dogs are free to swim in the pond, play with other dogs, lay under a shade tree, take a hike through the woods, sleep on the couch in the air conditioning or go back to bed and be alone if they want.
We don’t charge any extra for playtime, walking, belly rubs, hugs, one on one time, swimming, lap time, special food requirements or dispensing medication. Your dog will become a part of our family pack while you are away and will be treated to all of the love and attention we lavish on our own dogs—Just like Home! We keep our maximum occupancy at 10 dogs. We feel that taking more dogs compromises the excellent care your pet deserves. All dogs that stay with us must pass our evaluation to ensure that they can get along with everyone. For this reason, we also require that all dogs be spayed or neutered.
Just like Home is owned and operated by Joseph and Scarlett Cmiel and Jessica Gosline. All of us live on the property. The dogs are never left unattended. Our mission is to provide a safe, fun, and happy place for your dog to stay time and time again. We want your dog to come home tired, clean, and better behaved than before you went out of town. We want you to be able to leave your dog with us guilt free, knowing that they will be having just as much fun on their vacation as you are having on yours (if not more)!
Does your dog have a behavior issue that needs attention, such as an inability to walk well on a leash, fear aggression, problems meeting other dogs, or a training need not listed? We can incorporate a behavior transformation package into your dog's boarding experience--stay & train! All on-site training is conducted by Jessica Gosline of Just like MaGic.

Our Happy Clients
Just Like Home is just that---Just Like Home! Scarlett, Joe, and Jessica almost take better care of my three beagles than I do at home! They get more attention, care and love here than other places they have stayed. My three all have special needs--Mackey has disc disease, Copper has Cushing's disease, and Honeydew is a generally nervous Nelly who loves to visit Aunt Scarlett. No extra costs for meds and I never, ever have to worry. We already have two more reservations booked for the summer!!
