I did A LOT of searching and was so lucky to find John. It turned out we have some mutual friends and all had great things to say about him. He did a meet and greet which I loved to assure everyone that my dogs would get along with others. Leaving my dogs is the most stressful part about vacations for me so I'm relieved to have found someone I can trust. Very safe environment and it is obvious John loves dogs. We already have booked some time later this fall. My dogs came home clean and happy - I'm not sure they wanted to leave!

We absolutely love John!!!

John Buttner has taken care of my dogs for 15 years! The two boxers I have now and the one before that. I honestly don’t know what we’d do without him! He does midday visits to my house on the days I work. I have also boarded my dogs at his home when I travel. I can’t say enough nice wonderful things about John! I trust him fully and know he loves my dogs as much as they love him. He has given them medications and provided extra care when I’ve requested it. I always know I can count on him and it is so reassuring leaving their care in his hands. I highly recommend Specialized Pet Services!!!

The Best

The hardest part of traveling is leaving our dog. Our Kola is a 2 1/2 year old Mudi, high-strung, and a piercing barking, John treats her like his own. We are extremely confident and pleased with the care and compassion that John gives all his furry clients. We are truly fortunate to have found a care-giver of quality.

Great care for our puppy

We left our 4-month old puppy with John for a week when we went away on vacation. We had never been away from Biscuit before and we both felt some anxiety about the whole process, but John quickly put us both at ease. He has a great facility set up for dogs at his home, including terrific and secure outdoor space for the dogs to play. John demonstrated significant experience working with our canine friends, and bonded with our Biscuit immediately. Also, John was kind enough to send us daily updates on Biscuit while we were gone, including photos and videos--just to help put us at ease.

When we picked Biscuit up upon our return to Omaha, she was happy and healthy. We couldn't ask for anything more. 5 paws up.

I always feel at ease leaving my little dog with John while I'm away at work! He's a bit of a timid little dog, so I feel good about the one on one attention he gets with Specialized Pet Services!

I am from a family of dog lovers! They are part of the family! And that is exactly how John at Specialized Pet Services treats your pet. If you want absolute peace of mind for those times you must leave your dog this is where you will get it. John us the best , whether old or a pup or big or small your dog is treated just like he/she is at home. I wouldn't leave a 4 legged family member anywhere else! Simply the best.

We love John at Specialized Pet Services. He takes great care of our dog, Zef, both weekly at daycare and boarding for trips. Zef loves going to Johns house and playing with his doggie friends. We felt completely comfortable leaving Zef with John while gone for almost two weeks. It truly is a second home for our dog.

My Dogs Love SPC-And So Do I!!!

I am writing this while traveling and missing my dog like crazy. I am also completely at ease knowing that my dog is at Specialized Pet Services where he is getting wonderful care from John. My husband and I have been bringing our dogs to John for over 12 years and our they have always been happy to stay with him (they actually get a little crazy during the car ride over). They also come home happy, well cared for, and well loved. John has a great deal of experience and was wonderful about getting and staying in touch with me the one and only time that one of my dogs seemed to be a little under the weather (he was fine--just adjusting to a medication that didn't agree with him). Both of our dogs trust and love John, which makes leaving them in his care so easy and comforting. Our experiences with Specialized Pet Services have been 100% excellent and I heartily recommend them to anyone seeking boarding services for their pets. You'll enjoy real peace of mind and your pet will have a great stay!

John and Specialized Pet Services came highly recommended to us more than 15 years ago. Since then he has expanded his profession with this spectacular website which is a wonderful way for clients to see first hand how much he loves his job and his devotion to the care and attention he provides to our fur babies and the owners as well. I know that we all have concerns about entrusting our 4 legged friends with someone else for a period of time, but John is totally amazing and it is a no-brainer that Specialized Pet Services is the best place in town to board your pet. Its like a vacation for your pet when you go on vacation. Dan and I stand by this as John took care of our beloved Cocker named Tillie numerous times during the 17+ years of her life. Everytime we took Tillie to John's, we always worried if we were going to have to buy him a new leather sofa as Tillie was ball obsessive and would hide the ball in the furniture and then dig it out. Fortunately that never happened and we attribute that to the dedicated time John spends daily watching over the pets in his care. Now we have a 9 month old cocker puppy named Cher. She too has had her first overnight stay with John about a month ago. Because Cher is very attached to us, and a bit more timid then Tillie ever was, John unexpectedly sent us text messages and pics throughout the day to let us know Cher was doing fine and had quickly adapted to the environment and especially to him. The fact that John did this to provide us peace of mind with a new puppy goes beyond what another Pet sitter would do for you. We love you John, and look forward to many more years of the best for our little Cher and all the fur babies that come into your care. I would rate you higher than 5 stars if I could!

Right from the start my wife and I have received nothing by positivity and the comfort knowing that our little ball of energy is in the correct care. We have such crazy schedules and John has been such a great help. His communication skills are excellent and we love receiving photos and videos perdiocally. When our puppy Penny started at Specialized Pet Services we received an awesome information packet about being puppy parents that has been an excellent source of information. John is very passionate and it shows. This is a place I will recommend to anyone who is in need of his services.
