About Jennifer

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a mature but younger retired couple who spent 23 years caring for our Golden Retrievers; first Ernie, then Camille. After we lost Camille to old age in August 2015 we decided to take a break from full time doggie parenting in order to have some more flexibility in our retirement.

We miss our babies very much and thought DogVacay would be a great way to satisfy our need to give dogs a good home away from home. Our dogs were our children and we took them on many trips. Both had been to the beach many times before we moved here as well as being troopers in a 22 hour drive to Key West. The times we could not take them with us we were fortunate to have friends and family that argued over who would keep them!!

We will provide the most loving care for your dog. We live 2 miles from the beach and loved taking our dogs there. While we do not have a yard for them to roam, we are both retired and your pet will be taken on walks through our beautiful neighborhood a minimum of 5 times a day. If you have a playful dog it will be very happy here as both our Goldens were quite the characters!

We will provide your dog lots of love and attention while here however we also have expectations. We cannot keep dogs who are destructive, disobedient and cannot be left alone for a few hours at a time. It is unfortunate that we have to mention this but we have had several instances where we have not been given full disclosure and ended up with dogs who barked constantly, whined at night, were sick when dropped off or went to the bathroom in our home. You know your dog and should not impose upon us a pet with issues.

Allow us to give you peace of mind as you take that cruise or just need a weekend away.

Finding DogVacay and Jen and John in particular has been a lifesaver for us. My dog loves them and they love him. They have been very accommodating to us. I feel very lucky to have met them and would not hesitate to recommend them and DogVacay.
Jen and John, Bailey and Griffyn had a wonderful vacation at your home! Thank you SO MUCH for all the TLC...play time, belly rubs, etc. We loved getting the updates and pictures every day- we were so happy knowing THEY were so happy and content with you. They are definitely looking forward to next month when they get to stay again! Griffyn especially misses snuggling with Jen, and "Marty" misses John and the fabulous toy bin! Thanks again for taking care of our boys...treating them just as you would your own. You're the best!
Jen and John took wonderful care of our dog, Nicky. We really appreciated the cute photos and updates that assured us that Nicky was making herself right at home. She clearly loved all the attention and was happy and rested when she came home. Would highly recommend this "home away from home!"
Jen & John were great! They treated our dog Ollie like he was their own. We felt good about leaving him in their care and would highly recommend them.
Absolutely perfect hosts. Our first DogVacay experience, and it was a great one. Everything was just right -- communication was easy, Jennifer was easy to work with, clearly she loves dogs and is a responsible host. We're sure we'll schedule with her again.
Zeus and Zoey aren't used to being boarded, but I am very pleased with the care and attention given to them during their stay. Just like home!
Jennifer and John couldn't have been more welcoming to Jake and Rocky, or more sensitive to Rocky's (old fellow) needs. They had a great Vacay and can hardly wait to go back and visit again!
Jennifer & John were awesome!!! We first had a meet & greet witch went well and made me feel better since this was the first time using a sitter. I have a Chihuahua Chavo who loves to play and snuggle. Also is very attached to me. I received pictures and text everyday. She also responded to my texts right away. I could see with the pictures he adjusted well and loved all the playing and snuggles so much I was afraid he wouldn't want to come home. I have two more sittings coming up with them and feel very happy I found them. I would highly recommend them!!!!
We were so fortunate to find such wonderful sitters for our dog, Max. Jen and Jon were wonderful! They went above and beyond to make sure that Max was well cared for and loved while we were away. Each day while I was on vacation, I would receive an email from Jen to let me know how Max was doing. She even sent several adorable pictures. Unlike when he comes home from the kennel, Max was well rested, fed, and happy when we picked him up. I believe that he really misses his new friends, Jen and Jon. Thank you, Dogvacay, for providing such a wonderful service and finding such amazing hosts! We will certainly recommend DogVacay to our friends and family.
Jennifer and John kept us updated with comments and pictures. Berlin was very happy during his stay and was super well taken care of.

When we picked him up, he was happy and so were his hosta, as he was welcomed to come back. If you are looking for a home and foster parents for your baby,don't look any further, as Jen and John are the ones.

Jen and John, thank you for taking great care of Berlin, we will see you in a few months!

Jennifer is a true animal lover.
This was clear immediately from our meet and greet. My 14 yr old discerning doxie took her in short order. During his stay she provided plenty of snuggle time and treated my Remy as if he were her own.I rcvd regular updates and photos.
Jennifer is the type of host that distinguishes Dogvacay from standard boarding.
I was able to travel with the comfort of knowing my senior was in loving hands. All was cfmd by the happy pup returned to me. I am delighted knowing Remy has a warm and loving home to visit next time I travel.
This is our first time using DogVacay and I was really impressed with how easy it was to navigate through the site and make a reservation. Our 5 year old mini golden doodle spent 3 nights with Jen and her husband, John and had the BEST time. The couple are definitely dog lovers and Gracie took to them immediately. At least once a day, Jen sent pictures of how they were spoiling her, which allowed us to be at ease and enjoy our holiday weekend. When looking through potential sitters, the most important aspect for us was that Gracie feel part of the family and we have no doubt that John and Jen loved her as if she was theirs! Please don't hesitate to email me with any questions at tjhynes2001@hotmail.com. We highly recommend this couple!
The visit with Jennifer and John went great. Tessa will be spending two weeks with them in the new year. The only negative Tessa reported back to me was that she could not have half of the bed at bedtime.
Today was Tessa's first day visit being left with Jennifer and John. The visit went very well. Next week Tessa will stay for three nights.
We highly recommend Jennifer and John. They were super responsive to my emails as we began the process of making a reservation. This was our first Experience with Dog Vaycay, so I had a number of questions which Jennifer answered quickly and completely.

John and Jennifer provide a warm and caring home. Their love of dogs was apparent in how they interacted with our golden retriever, Tanner, when they met him. Tanner took to them immediately and was comfortably investigating their home and their doggie toys when I dropped him off for his stay.

Jennifer kept us up to date with photos and texts, which we loved receiving while we were away. Tanner looked so content that our grandchildren teased us about whether he would come home with us when we returned! Jennifer and John made our (and Tanner's) first Dog Vaycay experience a great one and we will definitely be booking with them in the future.
Jennifer and Don are wonderful dog sitters. They were very patient with my puggle, Duke, while he got acclimated to his new surroundings. They also sent photos to us and kept us appraised as to how he was doing.
