About Jennifer

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I absolutely love making new cat and dog friends and offer the utmost of care to the animals in my care when their owners are away.
Just check out my Instagram - Woof Woof NYC - to see the many animals I take care of year round.

How serious am I about my job?
So serious I have given up my apartment and begun petsitting every single day of the year! I often even do it while on vacation, as I have volunteered at the Japan Network Cat Shelter of Fukushima, Japan, as well as petsat in Lummi Island in Washington, for multiple families in Nova Scotia, as well as in Mexico!

How long have I been taking care of animals?
All my life! It began with cats and a chow chow during my childhood, spun into a role of adopting lab animals from the University of Pennsylvania's Psychology Department (where I studied undergrad), and then evolved into my first petsits watching the animals of my professors while they went away on trips.

Total amount of time I've been petsitting?
10 years!

Other Animal Care Experience
I've fostered animals in Brooklyn, been a full-time dog walker, trained puppies, and even helped a couple owners in choosing their dogs at breeders and shelters. Such an honor!

Communication with owners
Nothing brings me joy like sharing a good snapshot or video of a pup, cat, or rabbit with owners and ensuring them that not only is their pet healthy and safe, he/she is happy and having a blast with his/her active and loving petsitter. Owners can also check out my Instagram feed to see the animals I am watching.

My husband comes with me to every petsit. He works full-time as a partial owner and CTO of Final Frame, a post production company. He loves to share in the walks, snuggles, and friendship with our pets, and sometimes will take a pup along to work with him :)

I would highly recommend Jennifer and her team. They are professional, flexible and GREAT with dogs. Very happy to have connected with her while living in the city and glad to know my pup, Chubs, was always well taken care of. :)
I had a vacay with Jennifer's team, Camie, and Camie was a great sitter. She sent me photo updates everyday, and was very caring. My pups enjoy staying with her!
My husband and I are VERY happy with Jennifer and her team! Our pup Edie was so relaxed when we returned from our honeymoon, and that speaks volumes since she is a hire energy girl! We had daily photos and contact, and will definitely hire her again.
