About Jennifer

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi. Thanks for stopping by. I have had dog(s) of my own for 17 years and lost my Max in late January. I used DogVacay with Max, and loved it, so thought I would return the favor and open my home to your little (or big) ones. I live in the Bailey's Crossroads area, about 5 blocks from the W&OD trail and 2 miles from Shirlington area.

I have a new rescue from Lost Dog and Puerto Rico, Josie, who loves all dogs, and fat, 16 year old cat that is super friendly, so hope your pup likes cats, or at least not want to hurt them. She's pretty low key. I work from home so can keep your pups schedule with potty breaks, feeding and walks. I normally leave the house for a couple hours for errands and the gym on a daily basis. I worked for a local pet sitting company part time for a couple years sitting dogs and cats alike. I volunteer for a local animal rescue, Lucky Dog, and have fostered 17 puppies in the past 5 years until they find their forever home.

Going out of town and need someone to check on the cat? Happy to help. Have a busy day at work and into the evening? I offer daycare as well!

I live in a condo community, on the bottom floor, so no stairs, and we have a beautiful courtyard and about 10 dogs in the area. We are a very pet friendly community. There is a park across the street and lots of neighborhoods to walk, or not walk. I had a 15 1/2 year old pup that passed in Sept, so I am familiar with older dogs.

I prefer a housebroken dog. If there is a pair of pups that need to be together, I'm open to taking them both. No more than 2 dogs at a time however. I do have one large crate, so no need to bring your own.

Josie, Jazzie and I look forward to meeting you and your pup! Our goal is to allow you to have a stress free time away, knowing that your pup is in great hands. It will truly be their home away from home.

If I had a dog, I'd trust Jennifer with them. She has a lot of experience in taking care of her own dogs, as well as fostering a number of pups to help them get adopted (and with her help they find families fast!). She also owns a cat who thinks she's a dog, and a very friendly one at that. She came to say hello to me and get back rubs, and cats don't usually do that with me right away.

Jennifer is a very positive and friendly person. She's punctual, responsive, and very easy to communicate with - you will get all the required details and updates on time - I'm sure about that.

Her home (she owns it) is perfectly clean and looks amazing. She thought about each and every pup/cat- safety detail possible.
Her pet friendly community, proximity to dog-friendly outdoor area, and a huge fenced space are all the conditions are just perfect for your pup's stay!"
This was our first time with DogVacay, and we couldn't have asked for a better beginning than with Jennifer! She brings a wealth of experience in working with dogs, and it showed in the way she interacted with our puppy, Samoa. We were very comfortable leaving her for the weekend. Samoa also loved Jennifer's dog Josie, and we received many pictures of them lounging together. We'll be going back!
Jenniferwas tremendous. She was very responsive and accommodating. She really cared about Izzie and I could tell Izzie was very happy staying with her.
We left our 4-year-old golden doodle with Jennifer for a long weekend. It was his first time staying anywhere other than home or Grandma's house. He did great! Jennifer took wonderful care of him and sent us pics and updates throughout the weekend. It looked like he was having a great time and had clearly made himself at home. We have already looked into booking another stay!
Jennifer was great with Marley and was super flexible with with helping us arrange pick up and drop off times. Marley is an older guy who can be kind of grouchy and she was perfect with him!
We are so lucky to have found Jennifer and Josie! Jennifer was very accommodating and flexible with our schedule and made drop-off and pick-up a breeze. She sent us regular updates and pictures of Beaune - he was always either playing or napping! She even took him on a hiking trail where he went swimming! After we brought him home he slept the entire day, a true sign of a good time. This was one of the best DogVacay experiences I've had and we'll definitely be booking with her again!
Amazing! Jennifer took all my special needs requests respectfully and a sitter like her is hard to come by. I'm glad I found her and we've already booked our next stay with her :)
Jennifer is amazing, if it was possible to give her 10 stars I would! She takes great care of my dog, takes him on outings, and sends regular updates and pictures of what they're up to. Sometimes I think he might be having more fun on his getaway than I am!
Jennifer was amazing!!! Was willing to go above and beyond to work with my schedule and I appreciate it. I loved the daily updates and the emails she sent detailing my dogs visit. I will end up using her again when I go out of town. Use Jennifer and you won't regret it!
Jennifer was amazing! We left our pup with her for the day while we moved. She was very flexible with our schedule! Our dog is crate trained so it was great that she already had a crate there and we didn't have to lug ours along. Our pup fell in love with her immediately, which was awesome because sometimes she can be a little shy around new people. Thank you, Jennifer and hopefully we get to see you again!!!
Jennifer watched my six-month-old Labrador puppy for day care on two consecutive days. It was clear that she loves and has lots of experience with dogs. My puppy was excited to see her again on the second day, and came home pleasantly tired out from a trip to the dog park. Very happy to have found Jennifer, and my dog will be visiting her again soon!
I'd give Jennifer 6 stars if it were possible! Franklin had a great stay at Jennifer's. She took him to a friend's house in the country with a lot of land and some other dogs. Franklin got to experience the great outdoors the way a dog should. Thanks so much Jennifer for your care and for accommodating our schedule. Franklin can't wait for his next stay!
