About Jennifer

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Bring your dog to relax at the quiet and cozy Bungalow. Located in the heart of Dorchester, canine guests enjoy a private back yard, access to lovely parks nearby, and walks in one of Boston's most architecturally beautiful neighborhoods. As experienced dog owners, we'll make sure your dog will be taken care of so you can enjoy your time away worry-free.

Here's a little bit about me:

Originally from Indiana, I moved to Boston in 2002 and settled in Dorchester in 2009 with my husband Paul. I've worn many hats including that of lawyer, teacher and seamstress, but dogs have been a way of life for me since 2006 when we adopted a rescue, a Cocker Spaniel named Lucy.

After making some changes in my work life, I decided to walk dogs and board them at my home. A friend and I worked together walking dogs in the neighborhood and even took a pet CPR class. We did that until it seemed to interfere with Lucy's quality of life. A few months after Lucy passed we went through the same rescue and fostered another dog for a few months.

We are dog people. Our house just isn't a home without a dog because we enjoy the furry companionship and a beast to care for. We are flexible can work with your dog's needs to make sure its stay here is comfortable and enjoyable.

Jennifer was great! Her immaculate home was well-kept and puppy-safe. She has a great, fenced-in yard, perfect for running around. She has a very calm presence and seems quite comfortable with dogs. The environment is very calm. Most importantly, she was very accommodating when we ran into a weather-related travel delay and agreed to keep our dog an extra day (at cost, of course). I highly recommend.

Our dog's treatment was superb. Jen and her husband have just the right touch. The environment is quiet; their yard and neighborhood great for animals. They sent us a note and photo every few days. We felt that our dog was well cared for in every way. We will call them first when we have to travel again.

My two dogs had a wonderful time. After 8 nights, I returned to find happy dogs that were almost reluctant to leave Jennifer and Paul. I will definitely use them again!
