About Jamie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My dog Oreo and I have a large fenced-in back yard. The yard is well shaded with trees and Oreo loves buddies to run around the yard with. I have a three bedroom house that has plenty of room for playtime.

Oreo loves having company but many dogs like routine and would like to stay in the comfort of their own home. I offer both so just let me know what you prefer.

My nightly hosting rate is $25 per dog.

My house sitting rate of $40 includes 3 house visits in a 24 hour period. During each visit I will try to follow your pet's normal routine with feedings, potty breaks, and play time.
$10 extra to spend the night at the guest's house.
Each additional dog is $10 for house sitting.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions. I am flexible, can do custom quotes, and would love to make a vacay possible for your pet! I previously worked at Riverbanks Zoo and love all animals. Let me know if I can provide love and care for your pet while you are away!

Jamie was such an amazing doggie sitter for our little Olivia. She allowed us to do a meet and greet with her before we decided if it would work for both her and us. She was very hands on with Olivia and made sure she was treated with the same care we give her. She also gave us updates throughout the weekend along with pictures! I would definitely recommend Jamie to anyone who is looking for a great place for their furbaby to stay, where they will be in great hands for sure!
Jamie was great. First time we left our little Joaquin overnight with anyone. She carefully introduced him to her very gentle dog. Kept us informed with pictures the whole time we were there. Joaquin was very happy as soon as he got over his "they left me" issues. I hope we can leave him with Jamie next time we need to.
Experience with Jamie and Dog Vacay was wonderful. Jamie kept us informed, and was willing to do anything special that we might want. Missy's first time away from home in eight years was a success! Thanks Jamie!
Jamie was so great! My dog loves playing with her dog and I would definitely have Jamie take care of my Leia again! Thanks!
My two dogs had a great time with Jaime and her dog. She has a fenced backyard that they played in and plenty of room inside to relax on their dog beds. I appreciated that Jaime kept me updated with pictures and texts. Drop off and pickup were easy. I would be happy to leave my dogs there again.
Jamie was the best host for my dog! She worked with my schedule and sent me pictures daily. My dog loved playing with Jamie's dog and had a great time.
Jamie was totally awesome. She made Emma feel at home. Jamie sent me daily pictures and updates on Emma. I will definately have Emma stay with Jamie again.
Jamie was wonderful! Otis was happy and very well taken care of!! Thank you Jamie!
Monti had a great time! He will come back.
Jamie also does a great job taking care of our furbabies!
Awesome, will definitely be using Jamie again!!
Jamie was great with our 2 big dogs. When we picked them up it seemed like they hadn't even noticed we were gone.
Jamie is great with Jack. She even sends me a picture of him while he's with her. It's such a relief to know he's in good hands while I'm away.
If you know anything about Chihuahuas you know they can be snooty about people and other dogs which can create a challenge to find people to dog sit. Jack absolutely love Jamie and her dogs. I was so scarred he'd be a bully (at 7 lbs yes) but She said he did just fine once he got adjusted. She sent me pictures of him just been the cute big boy mommy loves so much. I don't have enough good things to say about her. I'm going away next weekend I hope I'm not too late for a reservation with her.
Jamie is great! She's kept our dogs before and they're well taken care of. One of our dogs actually messed up some of her stuff and she couldn't have been nicer about it, even though we felt terrible! It won't be the last time we use her...if she'll have us back. Thanks Jamie!
We love having found such a reliable caregiver take care of our doggie when we must leave her behind. And we think our doggie is happy to have Oreo as her new best friend!
Excellent host! Took great care of my dog Maddie! Texted updates to me, sent pics, answered questions quickly while I was away. Great backyard for the dogs to play in! Thanks so much Jamie!!
Highly recommended. I booked a last minute appointment with Jamie and she was able to accommodate Harry at such short notice, I thought that was brilliant. I recently moved here from Europe so making time for the little one is quite a task, Jamie is so lovely and accommodating so I would recommend booking with her. Thank you
We love having a convenient home and welcoming hostess to take care of our Gabby when we leave town!
I would definitely recommend Jamie! She was very nice, sent pics with updates & flexible. My dogs were very happy when I picked them up.
We are so glad to have another home for Gabby to stay in when we have to leave her behind. We adopted her from a shelter, and hope she never has to spend another night in a kennel. Jamie and Oreo seem like the perfect substitute family for our doggie!
Great experience, I would definitely leave my dogs with Jamie again !
I was so very grateful for Jamie being able to accommodate me at the last minute. She took very good care of my two dogs. I would definitely seek her services again if needed!
Jamie is a great choice! She took my reservation on short notice and was very flexible with drop-off/pick-up times. Because we didn't have the time to schedule a meet & greet, I sent her a list of Charlie's rules and behavioral quirks, hoping she wouldn't be overwhelmed. She took it all in stride and was happy to adjust to Charlie's personality and implement my training preferences. Charlie loved playing with Oreo, and we'll certainly send him to stay with her in the future.
Akina loved her time with Jamie and we will be using her again :)
I wish I could give Jamie more than five stars! She again accepted a last minute booking, and she was very flexible with drop off and pickup times :) I always know Zoey will be treated right when she stays with Jamie! Thanks again!!!
Zoey had another amazing stay at Jamie's house, and I have nothing but good things to say! Jamie is always fantastic with communicating before and during Zoey's stay. In fact, before accepting my reservation, she let me know that she was going to have another dog at the same time as she knew Zoey can be a little shy. In addition to this, she was flexible with my pickup time when I fell behind schedule. Thanks for everything :)
Jamie is so kind and loves the dogs. I feel very comfortable leaving Copper in her care.
Jamie is great! She was very accommodating and has an extremely dog- friendly home and backyard. Oreo is very friendly and was a great playmate for Max. He will definitely visit again!
Susie dog had a great vacation with Jamie! I highly recommend her. Her dog Oreo is a sweetie too! Thank you, Jamie!
Jamie was a wonderful host for Casey. She would text me and let me know how he was doing. She would also promptly respond to my texts when I would additionally text her. I was very nervous about leaving my lil man but he came back happy!! Jamie was very accommodating to taking her lunch to come home and check on him. She went out of her way to make it a great visit for Casey and a great experience for his nervous momma!! I would highly recommend her!!
Jamie was nothing short of incredible. She took my reservation for my two boys (mini-schnauzers) on relatively short notice and on a holiday week nonetheless. She was flexible on times to come meet her and Oreo and check out the space that the pets would be in. She has a very nice house and plenty of space in the back yard. She also has a sweet little pup named Oreo to keep your pet company. During my time away Jamie sent me pictures of the boys and assured me they were doing great. I can’t recommend her enough to anyone looking for a wonderful place your pets can stay while you are away. My mind was at ease the whole time thanks to Jamie.
Copper absolutely loves playing with Oreo. I felt very comfortable leaving my puppy with Jamie, she did a great job caring for Copper. I am so very thankful for her hospitality and will be calling her again and referring her to my friends.
Zoey had an amazing stay with Jamie! She loved running around in Jamie's big back yard, playing with Jamie's dog, and even got to stay in Jamie's bed (Zoey's favorite)!

When it comes to communication, Jamie was prompt in responding to my initial email, accepting my request, and in planning the drop off and pick up of Zoey! In addition to this, she was very flexible with the drop off and pick up time.

Next time Zoey needs a place to stay, I will definitely make a reservation with Jamie!

Thank you again :)
