About Jennifer

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey tail waggers! Romp and play with us while your humans are out of town. Hang in the backyard, chill in the living room, go on a walk with us. We eat twice a day at breakfast and dinner, have plenty of toys in our basket, and chase each other around. (Okay, Lexie chases me.) And we nap. A lot. (More me, actually.) And go play at the elementary school dog park nearby. And watch the world pass by out the front window. And get belly rubs. The pictures we posted are some of the places we go play (Auditorium Shores, Zilker Park, Red Bud Isle, and Turkey Creek.)

We keep our calendar updated, so be sure and check for availability at our human's house! Just bring your food, bowl, and any bed or blanket you want and we'll have a slumber party.

Wags,
Harley the beagle (I wrote this) and Lexie the cattle dog (she's hyper)

Jennifer is super easy to work with, and she's great with our dogs. They always have a great time. We appreciate that Jennifer usually has flexible drop off/pick up times. We're definitely repeat customers!
Great as always!!
Jennifer was great! We were nervous since we have never done this before. But she was awesome and came to our house for a meet and greet to answer all our questions. Will be using her again the future!
What a great host! She took such good care of our little buddy. She made the whole process as simple as possible. We won't hesitate to book with Jennifer again.
Jennifer was great! Dropping off and picking up was a breeze as she was available when I needed her to be, and I'm sure Finnegan had a great time!
Wonderful nice lady! Dmitri loved it!
This was our first experience using DogVacay and it was amazing! We were nervous at first but Jennifer took great care of Birdy. I am so happy we could enjoy our day and not worry about where Birdy was. She had a great time playing with the other pups and she came back ready to nap. Jennifer even made it easier by bringing Birdy back to us while she was out. We are so thankful for the peace of mind we were able to have while Birdy was with Jennifer.

Jennifer was great! My dog loved having her dogs and a backyard to play in. Leaving my dog with her definitely like leaving him somewhere he would choose for vacation.

Plus she was very responsive via text and flexible in accommodating changing drop off/pick up times.

Jennifer accepted my reservation super last minute and Kona had a blast! Thanks so much!
Jennifer took amazing care of my dog Luna!! She kept me updated on how she was doing everyday. She also helped a lot with pick-up and drop-off. Luna was a very happy girl when I got her back! I will absolutely be using her again!!!
Jennifer is the best! She always takes great care of Dezi, and he has so much fun playing with his friends! The pictures of him running around is always comforting while I'm away traveling. I can not recommend Jennifer enough!
We love Jennifer. This was Murphee's first stay and she did great. Thanks, Jennifer, and we will see you in August.
Good experience
Rex had a great time at Jennifer's and got along great with all the other pups. He is a large and very hyper dog so I was nervous at first to use a new host but everything worked out perfectly.
Jennifer is the perfect host! Our pup Roux has the best time whenever he's lucky enough to spend time over there. There always seems to plenty of activity and playtime for the dogs. Jennifer is super nice and easy to plan with. And she sends pics of the pets while we are away!

Jennifer was wonderful! She took great care of Sam for several days while I was out of town. Very experienced dog owner.
Both my dog and I couldn't be more happy.
The pups didn't want to leave and were tired out which means they spent a ton of time running around. Jennifer was extremely flexible with our pickup time which helped us enjoy the weekend and the pups enjoy more play time.
Gus and Elizabeth were well taken care of; not an easy feat when they are both giant breed dogs.
Great as usual. Thanks for having Arlo!
Jennifer was great! I had an unexpected trip come up and a new 2 month old puppy. She took him in with no qualms and sent me photos every day. He came home happy and healthy. She has two good sized dogs and even though he's a tiny puppy, he got along fine. I would recommend her to anyone.

Always the best
Jennifer was great as always. Highly recommend!!
This was our first time using DogVacay and we couldn't have had a better experience than we did with Jennifer. She watched our cuddly but rambunctious King Charlies Cavalier for two weeks and sent us regular updates with pictures to let us know how well he was doing. We could tell how much fun he had once we got home from all the play since he slept for about a day. We highly recommend Jennifer and will be using her again in the future.

Koah had so much fun she was so happy
Jennifer was a great! She was very flexible with our drop off and pick up times, sent us pictures and videos daily. She even took our dog on a hike with her! We would absolutely use her again and will be recommending her to all of our friends.
Jennifer was great! She sent lots of pictures and I think Otis had a wonderful time!
Jennifer was GREAT! She was excellent with updates and always asked before she did something. She obviously loves animals and does a great job caring for them.
Jennifer was great, as per usual!!

Jennifer was great! Sent us pics throughout the day of our pups and was helpful!
She's wonderful!
Teddy loved his stay with Jennifer. She was awesome working with our last minute boarding needs. We can't thank her enough. I'm sure Teddy is going to miss Jennifer and her sweet pups!
Our dog Alice has stayed with Jennifer multiple times, and Jennifer has been wonderful! She has a comfy house for the pups to lounge and a backyard for them to play -- Alice felt right at home. :-) Now when we pull up to Jennifer's house, our pup gets so excited and runs right up to the door! Jennifer also sends us daily pictures and texts to keep us updated. Plus, she's also been flexible and understanding when we've gotten delayed and had to pick Alice up later. Jennifer is a great sitter all around and we'd highly recommend her!

She always kept us updated and sent us cute pictures to let us know our kiddos were doing well!! Wouldn't hesitate at all to bring my dog back to her!
Great experience, will use Jennifer again in the near future! Thanks for the photo updates too, I love seeing my tired/happy pup when I'm gone
Jennifer was great!
I couldn't be happier with how well my baby girl Luna was treated! It was my first time leaving her and Jennifer made sure to send me updates and pictures will how she was doing. Luna had tons of fun and I will definitely use Jennifer again!
Jennifer was an excellent caretaker of my two labradoodles while I was on vacation for six days. I highly recommend Jennifer to care for your dogs while you are away. She sent daily photos and updates of my dogs and their activities. Jennifer will keep up with any rules and routines that your dogs have at home. She has cool tile floors in the main living area downstairs which is excellent for the dogs in the extreme summer heat. I brought my two dogs' beds and they were placed in the center of the living area downstairs. Jennifer has a doggie door that leads to a fenced in backyard so the dogs have access to the restroom whenever they need to go. My largest dog weighs about 55 pounds and he was able to make it through. Not sure if a much larger dog would be able to fit, but I have no doubt that Jennifer would be diligent in letting the larger dogs out frequently. Due to the extreme temperatures in the Texas summer it is too hot for my long-haired dogs to go for a long walk. Jennifer turned on the sprinklers in her yard and through the tennis ball to my dogs which they love and it gives them plenty of exercise. Jennifer has two very friendly dogs of her own which works out well for my two dogs. They get much needed socialization while I am away. I will definitely use Jennifer to care for my dogs every time I am out of town. She is very easy-going and accommodating to your needs. I have no doubt that my dogs had a great time.

Jennifer was a great dog sitter to us and Olaf. Olaf seemed to enjoy his stay very must! I highly recommend Jennifer!
My golden Brewer always enjoys staying with Jennifer. He comes home happy and worn out!
Amazing sitter, has a lot of love for what she does. My boxer pup never wants to leave when I pick her up, and always comes back exhausted from all the exercise. Highly recommended!
Great host that accepted our puppy on very short notice! Our dog is not one to socialize with other dogs at all, but when we came to pick him up, he was having so much fun running around with the hosts dogs that it was hard to get him to leave! Will definitely be going back to Jennifer!

Amazing, the host is loving, caring, and makes the dogs exercise lots. My pup seriously didn't want to leave Aunt Jen's. - Will be using her again for sure!
This is the third or fourth time our dog has had the pleasure to stay with Jennifer. He loves it and I never have to be concerned whether he is happy or well taken care of - the texts and pictures she sends me shows a dog who may not want to leave!!
Thanks again.

Another great stay with Jennifer!
Jennifer was VERY welcoming and accommodating and was great with sending pictures and updates of my Kali May while I was on vacation. I'll be using her again in the near future :)
I would totally recommend Jennifer to anyone who's looking for a reliable and wonderful sitter. She's easy going and flexible, and I always get the best vibes from her. Ollie loves her too!
Jennifer is awesome! I can't praise her enough for her patience and kind spirit. Ollie always has a good time at her place.
Our dog Charlie had a fabulous time at Jennifer's house! She made new friends and was free to play and have fun. Charlie was so worn out when we got home, that she slept the rest of the evening and straight through the night! Jennifer kept us posted on how Charlie was doing with pictures and texts while we were gone. She is flexible and accommodating, and we will certainly be using her again in the near future!

I'm so glad to have found Jennifer. I had a great vacation and my pup clearly did as well. He enjoyed playing with the other dogs and came home tired. I'm afraid the poor guy is gonna be super bored now that he's back home and away from all the fun at Jennifer's! She clearly loves dogs and is very reassuring (I tend to be a little anxious, especially since this was my first time away from the pup for such a long time). Your dog/s will be in great hands with her.

Jennifer was awesome! She was professional and flexible with drop off/pickup times. And most importantly our dog came home completely exhausted from play.
Jennifer was great! She has a dog of her own and a yard- both of which my dog loved! Jennifer kept us
updated throughout our trip with pictures and texts. It was clear our dog was in good hands and enjoying herself! Jennifer was even flexible when we for delayed coming home, which we were grateful for. I highly recommend her and will definitely be requesting her as a host again. Thanks Jennifer!

My dog Max loves to stay with Jennifer. He gets love, exercise, more love and is completely spoiled. I can be out of town and not worry for one second whether Max is okay - I just know he is happy and being taken care of responsibly. My only worry is that he may not want to leave!! I am lucky to have found Jennifer.

Jennifer was excellent with Baxter. He came home tired and happy. Thank you so much!
Annie LOVED Jennifer! Maybe because she let Annie sleep with her. Jennifer texted me several pictures while we were away letting me know that Annie was being taken care of. We will definitely use Jennifer again and will recommend her to others!
Jennifer is great! She is really easy going and you can tell she obviously loves dogs. After the day at Jennifer's (with Lexie and Harley), he is worn out and content. I am definitely glad I found her!
Jennifer was an excellent host. Our dog had a blast at her house and was so exhausted when she came home that she slept the entire evening away. We would definitely rebook.
Jennifer watched our beloved Jack this weekend and was wonderful! Jack came home looking very happy and tired!

It was also so comforting to see Jennifer's texts over the weekend, letting us know how Jack was doing - we even got a number of daily pics! It made us feel great knowing that he was in good hands and having a good time with her and the other pups staying there. We will definitely use her again!

Alexandra (mom to Jack)

Jennifer took great care of our little old man Luigi. He came home happy and spunky, and clearly happy to have been spoiled. He had such a good time that the morning after we brought him home he howled at the door for a while...he never does that so we are pretty sure he was asking to go back to Jennifer's. We definitely recommend her and we'll definitely use her again...probably for daycare since Luigi is insisting...

she loves dogs-takes great care and stays in touch with us
Jennifer took excellent care of my dog Lacy and she made the whole experience easy. Her communications beforehand were clear and pleasant, and while I was away she sent emails with photos to reassure me that Lacy was alive and well. It's obvious that Jennifer is a dog lover herself, and I highly recommend her.

Just wanted to give her another five stars! See my longer review about Jennifer. She's the best!
This is an overdue review for the best dogsitter ever. I can not recommend Jennifer enough. We're on our third booking and I won't ever go to anyone else as long as she's available.

She is kind and attentive and takes such good care of our puppy Lou. She treats him with unconditional love and concern as if he was her own. Lou LOVES Jennifer and her dogs Lexie and Harley. LOVES them. We occasionally run into them at Turkey Creek and he remembers her every time and is SO excited to see her and play with her dogs.

We feel really fortunate to have found Jennifer. I am a complete lunatic over-protective "mother" when it comes to Lou, but I always feel so calm and at ease when Jennifer is watching him. And she totally gets my crazy and is really good about sending me regular updates (texts, emails, photos, etc) to let me know how it's going while he's with her.

Honestly, she's the best. I almost don't want everyone else to start booking her because I want her to be available for Lou whenever I need her. Haha! (Kidding...sorta...) Anyway, she's awesome, if you need a dogsitter, she's your choice.

Jennifer did great with my dog and seemed to get along well Wyeth hers. She was very responsive and flexible with meeting times. I'll definitely be using her again in the future.
Roger seems to have really enjoyed his time with Jennifer, Lexie and Harley. He was completely tired and lazed around for at least a full day after. Jennifer was excellent and sent us pictures daily that showed how much fun he was having. She was also really flexible when we ran a little late and gave us great advice!

Jennifer was AWESOME! She took our dog to the dog park, played with her, and tucked her into bed at night. She was also so sweet to send me texts and photos while I was away, which was so reassuring. I was honestly afraid that my dog wouldn't want to come home. :-) Cannot recommend Jennifer enough!

Brewer had a great time at Jennifer's. He definitely played a lot and had a great time with the other dogs. I've never seen my Brewer so tuckered out upon returning home.
