About Jenny

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am known by the (animal) company I keep! I have two dogs that I walk daily, and I am a big believer in "the more the merrier". I have taught environmental science at Plano's Outdoor Learning Center for many years, and am also a Children's Program Teacher at the Dallas Arboretum, as well as an Instructor certified in Animal Handling at the Dallas Zoo. In 2008 I became a certified Master Naturalist, through the Texas AgriLife/Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. I have often cared for neighbor's pets in their own homes or mine. I have previously worked for a pet service, caring for animals in their own home.

**Please note that my holiday rate of $45/night, per dog, will be in effect beginning November 15, 2016, through January 15, 2017. **

Jenny and her family were awesome! Jenny sent pictures throughout the stay and both dogs were happy when we picked them up!
We've had a tough time boarding our anxious, scared little girl, but she did great at Jenny's. She came home healthy and happy, and that is a change from previous boarding experiences. She shall return!
friendly host, good location.
Jenny and her family took such good care of my girl while I was gone. I would definitely use her again.
Thank- you, Jenny , for taking such good care of Belle! She really enjoyed her stay with you! Your home has such a warm and loving atmosphere and was just perfect for Belle. We really appreciated the pictures that you sent! We feel that Belle was well taken care of white staying with you. We hope that Belle can stay with you again! Thanks, again, for everything .

Jenny was GREAT! We were uneasy leaving our pup with a stranger for the first time, but Jenny made us feel very comfortable. Mollie had a great time and made lots of new doggie friends. We got pics and videos and she really made it easy for us to have a worry free vacation. THANK YOU JENNY!

Jenny was great. She sent updates and pictures even though Jordan's stay was only one night. Glad to have found someone that Jordan is going to be comfortable with.
Thank you Jenny for taking such great care of Belle. She seemed happy when I picked her up. I will definitely use your services again.
Jenny was amazing, Chase is my fur baby and he is a Pomeranian with a little of socialization issues, so I was kind of scared of leaving him with other dogs around, but Jenny and her family were fantastic! And Chase loved them! Thank you Jenny
Jenny took great care of Scout. He had a good stay and came home happy and healthy. Jenny sent regular updates and pictures. We could tell Scout was being his usual self and having a good time. We would recommend Jenny to anyone looking for a good boarding experience.

Jenny was amazing!!! Our dog fit in nicely with her family and other pets! We highly recommend her and would book with her again!!!
Jenny was a wonderful host. She was able to take in our pups at very last minute and we are very grateful for that. We even loved the update she sent us. Mini and Bentley loved their stay with Jenny and we will be sending them back next time we go out of town. I would highly recommend.

Jenny and her family were so patient with our two dogs, one of which has several unique needs. It really gave us some peace of mind as we were traveling to know our dogs were being cared for with lots of love and attention.We were so grateful to receive video/picture updates from Jenny while we were on vacation; the pups looked so happy and at ease that any worries we had were immediately soothed.

We've already booked with Jenny for our next trip!

Jenny and her family were great with our fur baby! She kept us updated during our time away and was quick to get back to us when we contacted her. Our schnoodle seemed like she a had a very good time and would love to use Jenny again in the future!!

Jenny was hospitable and courteous, and cared not only for Tanner, but us as well. Very friendly!
Wow! There is no wonder why Jenny has the stellar reviews and number of repeat guests as she does. Our two basset hounds stayed with Jenny and her lovely girls for a week while my husband and I were in Montana. Not only did she make me feel super comfortable about the arrangements during the meet-n-greet, but throughout the entire week, we received video and picture updates of my dogs having a ball.

When our flight home was cancelled which delayed us on stand-by for over 10 hrs, Jenny was extremely flexible and understanding and allowed a late pick-up to accommodate us, which helped brighten a horrible day.

I would recommend Jenny to any prospective Dogvacayer.

My Boy Ceaser was very happy with her kids and the care and love given to him was unconditional. I would recommend to my friends and would like to go next time.
Jenny was great and very responsive to my questions and requests. I felt comfortable that my dog was part of the family and loved.
Jenny is a wonderful dog lover and she kept us up to date the entire time, plus posted photos! We highly recommend her. Andrew
Jenny was great about cheerfully taking a last minute reservation. We appreciated the pictures and updated she shared while we were gone. I would definitely use her again!
Everything was great and I want to use this again.
teddy enjoyed the stay with Jenny and her dogs. jenny is a very kind lady and took great care of teddy. she sent daily updates and responds to the messages very quickly. she deserves the 5 stars, would become a repeated customer.
Jenny is great, easy going, and has an appreciable intuition with dogs! We loved getting videos and pictures while we were away of Crosby. It made us feel at ease and happy that he was having a great time with vacation buddies. We feel he had such a fantastic time being a dog on his stay that he missed Jenny's the first couple of days after he came home. We highly recommend Jenny, the dog lover!!

Great communication! Loved the pics and video!
Jenny and her daughters made our Gabby so welcomed, she did not want to come home. Jenny kept us updated with pictures and videos during our 10 day vacation. Much better for our dog than a cage
Bennett had the best time with Jenny during his stay! She was so sweet and sent pictures throughout the day - I knew he was in good hands :) He can't wait to go back and play again sometime! I will definitely book with her again.
Great experience! We have a rescue dog who's very nervous around outsiders and other animals and he was put right at ease! Jenny sent us pictures so that we could see how well he was doing! We will definitely use her again!
Our dog Zoe really enjoyed her time at Jenny's and had fun with the others there! Jenny was great and kept us up to date with pictures and messages. So glad we found a much better option than Petshotel or the likes.
Jenny is a great hostess. She is smart, friendly, and has a great sense of humor. Our dog, Buddy, has stayed with her twice, and come back looking very happy.
Jenny is great! She always takes great care of my furry friend! Also she is great at sending update pictures and messages while we are away!
Jenny, her daughters, and their little beagle Cinnamon made Boe feel very welcome and he had a great time in their company. Jenny special thanks for taking in Boe at such a short notice!
Jenny is great! She provided constant picture and video updates. Jenny's family is very welcoming to dogs. He loved it there!
We were so pleased with having our Cosmo (beagle) stay with Jenny while we were on vacation. We had not left him before and she made it so easy for us and for him. We loved all the videos and pictures she sent us while we were away.
Jenny is wonderful and has such a love for animals!! Cosmo had a terrific time. She was great about posting and keeping us informed. We knew our fur baby was in good hands! Cosmo can't wait for another visit~ thank you!
Our dog didn't want to come home! Jenny and her lovely daughters made Keiko feel right at home.
Jenny and her family are great! Our dogs had a great visit while we were away, and Jenny even sent us a video of our older dog playing (which he almost never does anymore!) When we came by to pick up the boys, Jenny had their blankets and toys all packed up and ready to go. This was our first DogVacay, and it was a very positive experience.

I am so thankful I came across Jenny to take care of my sidekick Rosko! I moved back in the area and have a busy schedule and appreciated her flexibility and understanding!. Rosko had such a blast here and continues to as she is now my go to pup sitter. Rosko has had surgery on both legs and had pancreatitus and I know he is very well taken care of at Jennys house. I would highly recommend letting your baby stay here and can guarantee he/she will have a blast!!

My dog Dixie loved her vacay with Jenny, we would definitely use her again!
Jenny and her girls love animals so much! Gabby loved the stay even though we missed her so much we picked her up early. Thanks Jenny and girls for loving on our Gabby so much!
I knew my poochies will be well taken care of as soon as I was welcomed by Jenny and her two adorable daughters. They are helpful and caring. I received about 6 to 7 pictures/video from her during my trip. I definitely will go back!
This was my first time using DogVacay, so I was a bit nervous about leaving my best friend with someone I didn't know. Jenny made me feel very comfortable and sent me daily updates and pictures of my pup at various times. She quickly responded at all times and that went a long way for me.

I'll definitely book again with Jenny and would recommend her to anyone, and I have high standards when it comes to my pup. Thanks Jenny!

Chewie happy and we are happy. Thanks Jenny!
Jenny was a fantastic pawsitter for our Yorkie, Sable. Sable is still a puppy and we know that taking care of puppies is a challenge! Never once did I feel guilty about leaving Sable with Jenny like I would have felt with a kennel because Jenny is very loving. DogVacay was excellent to work with.

Jenny was fantastic! I had never left my dogs with anyone other than people they knew before so I was a little nervous as to how they would react. Especially since one of my dogs is a little slow warming up to new dogs and people. Both dogs settled in great and Jenny gave me plenty of updates and pictures. Thanks again, Jenny!

Jenny is the best!! As long as she is available, our dog Oliver will always stay with her!!!!!!
Perfect. Will always take my babies here!
Meet my dogs
Charlie - goldendoodle - 100 pounds
Fada - goldendoodle - 80 pounds
Sammy - British Golden - 130 pounds
Lola - Goldendoodle - 100 pounds
Mousse - Newfie - 110 pounds
Emma - Newfie - 165 pounds

The impossible: Can you board them all together for one night?
And Jenny C without hesitation said, of course!!! Even after I told her: I don't cage them, they sleep around the house. She said: whatever you do in your house I will do here!!!

I took them on Saturday afternoon, she even adjusted a new time to drop them off, since I needed a little bit early. And they were welcomed by her and her 2 lovely daughters.

She kept me posted with pictures of them...

It was an amazing experience, since it was the first time all my dogs slept someplace else...

I would recommend her very much..she is very kind and treated my dogs like was hers...

Thank you Jenny! You have no idea how I appreciate you services...

You definitely got your self a client.

This was the first time I left left my puppy with anyone. Jenny and the girls were wonderful! They took great care of him for six nights and sent me videos and pictures. I didn't think my dog wanted to come back home. I will definitely call Jenny again.

Such a wonderful experience for not only my puppy, but also for me as well!! Jenny is so kind, and I know Oliver loved being with her and her sweet girls while we were away...It was so nice to be able to drop him off, and feel so at ease about where he would be staying!!!

Loved!!! My dog Oliver had so much fun he didn't want to come home. I was nervous as this was my first time leaving my dog with anyone. But with all the pictures and videos Jenny sent me I felt a lot better. I knew he was in good hands. Will definitely use her again!

Jenny was brave enough to take on all 4 of my dogs while I was out of town. She texted me updates on their welfare and lots of cute pics of my pack having a great time with her and her family daily. I know my dogs and if they had not been happy or mistreated while at dogvacay, I would have been able to tell. They also made new doggy friends while staying w/ Jenny. She has a genuine love for dogs and it shows. I will definitely be using Jenny in the future when I have dog family members who can't accompany me on a trip. She was a five star host!!

Jenny and her family,are awesome Dog people. I felt really good about leaving my Shih Tzu with them for long Weekend. When we got back,he was happy to see us,but I could tell he had good time too.. Will definetely call Jenny again. Many Thanks.
My border collie, Dusty, is 17 and has limited mobility and other issues. Jenny and her family showed great care and concern for her well being. I think Dusty had a great week with all the attention and the companionship of other furry friends. I am extremely grateful and would enthusiastically recommend Jenny to anyone needing a DogVacay.

Jenny was wonderful! She sent pictures of my puppy to let me know how she was doing and was a pleasure to have her look after my puppy! I felt completely safe and comfortable with Jenny looking after and caring for my dog! I would highly reccomend her!!

This was a great experience. I was very hesitant to leave my fur baby with a stranger but Jenny and her lovely daughter were very sweet with my dog (Lilly). I called short notice and she was very accommodating with drop off and pick up times. I even received several pictures through out the day. I would not hesitate to call on her again.

Jenny kept my two dogs Goober and Moss for 7 days. We've never left our dogs with anyone that long, so we were a little nervous about how they would do. Our dogs were comfortable and happy the minute we arrived at Jenny's. She and her girls were so kind and helped us get our dogs and their things into her home. The dogs really seemed to get along well the Jenny's own dogs. Jenny sent several photos and videos of our pups to us while we were gone. When we picked the dogs up, they looked like they were having a great time! They almost didn't want to leave. I would highly recommend Jenny to anyone, and look forward to having her dog sit for us in the future!

Jenny and her family were great hosts to Cali while we were on vacation. I would highly recommend her!
Jenny and her family are warm and out-going, and you can tell that they really love and get to know the pets in their care.
Just as she did before, Jenny made sure Riley was right at home and she sent plenty of pics (and a video)! He clearly loves cuddling up with her family.
My dog had a great time! She enjoyed playing with the other dogs and with the 3 beautiful young girls! My dog was not nervous at all when I left. I don't even think she noticed when I left! Great experience will be using again! I am so thankful for this service!

Awesome as always! Have used Jenny several times and she treats our dogs as family! They love going there, so makes us not feel quite so bad leaving them. :)
Jenny was a sweet host who clearly loves having furry company. She took numerous pictures of my doggie relaxing in her home and sent them to me while I was gone, which was so nice to receive when I was feeling bad about spending Christmas away from him for the first time. My husband picked him him and said that he actually went back to say bye to Jenny and her other dogs! I'd definitely use Jenny again and actually plan to in the next few weeks.

My dogs enjoyed their visit very much! I knew that my boys were in good hands. I received updates and pictures from Jenny. They were so worn out that they slept for hours when we got them home. She took them on daily walks. I will use her again for sure!

Jenny was awesome with both our dogs. Spoiled them rotten and took our Husky out for her much needed walks. She sent us pictures of them and although we were only gone overnight, we felt great knowing they were in great hands! You can tell what a huge animal lover she is!
