About Janine

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a retired, mature female wanting to provide loving care for your small breed in my clean, non-smoking private home with no children and no other pets. I have a 20 lb. weight limit due to lifting restrictions. I have a fully enclosed yard on 2 acres in North Kitsap. I only accept 2 dogs at a time for overnight stays and 3 dogs for daytime care. Your baby is never left alone, and is accompanied by me at all times during trips out to the yard. Your dog will have free run of my house except for 2 bedrooms, and 100% availability of cuddles. We will go on a minimum of 2 walks a day, or as you desire. My services are totally tailored to what you want for your pet. Owners of very small breeds can relax, knowing that I never have large dogs here, which provides an additional measure of safety for your little ones.

I am a total dog lover, but allergic to cats. I lost my own little Sheltie boy over 5 years ago, but still love interacting with dogs. I am in total awe of the miraculous bond between humans and dogs!

I can provide basic training for young dogs using positive reinforcement and love. I can also provide bathing and basic grooming services if desired.

At your home, I will provide all the feeding, exercise, walks, and playing that your dog wants, plus clean-up of any messes.

I understand how precious your baby is to you, and he/she will always be treated as my own!

I am sensitive to the needs of senior dogs and I welcome them in my home.

It's a win-win deal! You get a worry-free vacation, knowing that your dog is getting loving, personal attention from a real, warm human being and not languishing neglected in a kennel. I get to have fun with your sweet little dog and satisfy my love for dogs!

Please note: In order to insure a happy and healthy experience for everyone, all dogs must be fully housetrained and up to date on all vaccinations & flea meds. I am sorry that I can't make any exceptions on this policy.

Janine was wonderful. She stayed in our home for three nights and during the day to take care of our two English Cocker Spaniels. She was attentive to our dogs needs and care, calling us as we had requested of her, with questions about the dogs health and care. She was also very respectful of our home and belongings. Janine was responsive to our phone calls and emails when we contacted her to check-up on how the job was going. We will definitely hire Janine again for any future pet sitting needs, and recommend her without reservation for such services.
This was a first meet & greet. Everything went well & Stanley was glad to see me even though he seemed to enjoy sitting on Janine's lap. Stanley can be a little skittish when meeting new people & Janine took the time & patience to work with him. Next time it will be for an overnighter.
Janine is perfect if you have a little dog you love and need a dog sitter to leave he or she with. Our little havanese made herself right at home at her house .We will be leaving our little princess there whenever we have plans that don't include dogs
Janine was fabulous. She is so welcoming and has such a comforting and calming demeanor. She is very patient and knowledgeable in customizing her relationship with your pup. She gives detailed updates making you feel confident your pup is in good hands while you're away. She also provides plenty of attention and exercise! I will certainly be sending my dog her way in the future.
Taz and Coco just adores Janine. We are so glad to find her. It feels so good to be able to leave our babies to Janine while we are away. She is wonderful with our babies. Will definitely use her again.
This is the first time I have had to leave my dog with a stranger and I felt good leaving her there. We had a meet and greet a few days before so they could get to know each other. I plan on using Janine again.
Janine saved the day. My dog loved visiting her. She sent pictures to me so I could see Tucker. It gave me a lot of comfort.
Papa is sooo happy to have found you! Jacko too is sooo happy to have a new Auntie not too far from home with arms wide open to accept him into her home for doggy vacations while mama and papa are away. We were so happy to receive daily mail photos of our lil Jacko napping in Aunty Janine's house. When we went to pick him up he wasn't sure whether he wanted to stay or go. Now that he's home he misses her bigtime. He misses the rubs and games and following her around the house. I think for the first time that our little Jacko is excited for our next vacation, because he knows that Aunty Janine has a special place in her heart and home for our little corgy mix. We were worried he'd be a handful, but he fit right in and took to napping and following his loving auntie about on her daily chores. It was really important for me to find a NEW Auntie for my lil Jacko, because I wasn't sure he was getting the special attention he needs. Jacko is a rescue so he needs extra special attention otherwise he gets severe separation anxiety and is a master of the whimper for attention. According to Auntie Janine he was a very good little boy and received an A+ report card!! Wow! What a surprise for Dad! Good boy Jacko!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart Auntie Janine for taking such great care of my lil Jacko. It SHOWS! Mahalo for your Tender Loving Care. T&S.
Janine was a perfect fit for my quiet little pup! My dog returned home in great shape and less stressed than usual. I have already rebooked Janine for another trip where my pup can't join me. She will be a great resource in the future.
This was Dewey's second stay and enjoyed being cuddled and snuggled with Janine. Will certainly book again! She is such a loving and caring sitter, just the best!
Great, great, great. Felt very comfortable leaving Luci. We will return again shortly. thank you, Steve/Lori/Luci
Janine was wonderful! Dewey loved all the cuddles and treats. He is careful who he wants as a friend and it was love at first sight with Janine. We look forward to enjoying future vacations knowing Dewey will be well cared for and loved.
What a wonderful experience! Janine is the best and I will definitely leave Daisy with her again. The email messages and pictures put me at ease and I was able to enjoy my vacation without worrying about my puppy. Thank you, thank you, thank you !
Janine took absolutely wonderful care of my Essie and kept me well informed of her activities while I was away. I will return to Janine again and again.
Janine was the best doggie host ever! She sent us little status reports making our wedding weekend stress free. We knew Dixie was in good hands. She has a lovely peaceful home and she is warm and welcoming. I feel like we all gained a new friend. I would highly recommend Janine. Thank you so much!!
Our dog warmed up to Janine immediately and it put us at ease to see that he was comfortable with her. Janine has an obvious love and understanding of dogs. We appreciated the photos she sent and that she brushed him. We are very picky about who we leave our baby with, and very happy that we found Janine. We will definitely be using her services again.
