Thank you, Jennifer. You came to our rescue and gave us peace of mind that Emmutt would be well cared for in your home.
After adopting Mabel we were excited to see if she would remember Jennifer and her family. She was thrilled to visit and our Roxy had a great time also. This is the best place for lil pups to go and have fun!!!
Jennifer and her family always make my sweet girl feel welcome and included in everything. Can't find a better "home away from home" anywhere else!
Just a quick stay this go around, but another great one and our new puppy's first time! She loves it! Just like her "big" sister. Thank you!! We can't wait for our next stay ??
Always a great stay! Lola had a blast while we were away and got in some play time before meeting her new little sister! Thank you!!!
I was very pleased with the love and care Joey received from Jennifer and her family! I loved the photos Jennifer sent me where I could see Joey was having a great time. I will definitely call Jennifer the next time I must leave Joey!!

Roxy is always so well taken care of that it is with great peace of mind that we can leave her with Jennifer. She is awesome!!
Longest time away from my little man...and it was so much easier with updates and pictures from Jennifer!
I received daily updates and photos which was nice, especially since it was the first time we used Jennifer. She has a great set-up for dogs both inside and out:)
My pup had an excellent stay with Jennifer! She is very warm and friendly and makes sure you know that your fur-baby is being well taken care of while you're away.
We had our dog stay 10 nights with Jennifer while we were away. We have never left our dog with anyone but family and friends before and she made us feel very confident that everything would be taken care of. Her house and yard is perfectly set up for dogs and she is very knowledgeable, confident and caring. Jennifer even texted pictures to us throughout our vacation. She was flexible and easy to work with. It was wonderful to know our dog was having a great time and being well cared for. We will be using her again for our next vacation. Thank you Jennifer!!
Logan always has fun with Jennifer and is well cared for.
Thank you Jen for being so flexible with us for Lola's most recent visit. Due to a winter storm, we needed to return earlier than expected. Not only was Jen totally cool with it, but she also encouraged us to drive safely. We took our time driving back knowing that Lola was receiving the very best care.
Lola always LOVES staying with Jen and her family! She gets the best care and always has so much to tell us after her visits. Thank you for helping us enjoy our anniversary by caring for Lola and totally putting us at ease knowing that she was in such good hands. Loved the photo of her and Reggie :)
Jennifer is awesome!!! Our dog can be somewhat anxious in kennels where she has to be in a "barn" with only other dogs around her most of the time. At Jennifer's, the dogs stay in her home, are very well cared for, and are warm and comfortable. I loved that she sent me texts and pictures assuring me that our dog was doing well. We will definitely be going back!
Prior to our pup's stay with Jennifer, Louie and Rue had only ever stayed with friends and family. I was hesitant to leave Louie, especially, as he is often anxious around new people and animals. Our meet and greet with Jennifer and her "pack" really put my mind at ease. Jennifer introduced us to each of her pups, and they all played together in the back yard. Once the pups had all been acquainted, Jennifer took us inside where Louie and Rue could further explore. Jennifer's home is extremely clean and not at all cluttered. There are many areas where the pups can play and rest. Jennifer explained her typical "routine" and answered all of our questions. I didn't leave with any doubts or concerns. I booked Louie and Rue's stay right away! During our trip, Jennifer sent us updates and pictures via text. I couldn't believe how easily our pups acclimated to a new environment. I am confident that Jennifer's calm demeanor helped tremendously with putting our anxious boy at ease, and having other dogs to play with was a great experience for our more outgoing girl. We picked up two very happy, very tired pups!
Another wonderful experience for our little dog! I would highly recommend Jennifer to everyone!
Jennifer's usual fine job. Logan enjoys his stay.
This was Emmutt's second stay with Jennifer. This time he stayed for two weeks (which was a long time for us and he probably thought we were never coming back!) He was well cared for and Jennifer was so sweet to again send photos during our vacation to let us know he was getting along just fine. We are so happy to have found her on your site.
Jennifer is great! It's the first time we have ever left our pup with anyone, and it was a wonderful experience. Jennifer sent us multiple pictures throughout his 10-day stay as well as little messages to update us on how he was doing. It was a great experience and we are looking forward to more dogvacays with her in the future. Tanner gives her two paws up too!
As usual, Logan seemed to have fun at Jennifer's and was well taken care of. In the future, I will definitely reserve time for Logan with Jennifer every time I have to go out of town
LoLa LOVES going to doggy daycare at Jen's! Five paws!
Historically, we have taken our little girl with us on vacation. However, this time around we weren't going to be staying around the cottage much and were planning to be visiting more places where dogs are not welcome. So, we had LoLa stay the week with Jen and she LOVED it!! We did too and all the photo updates we got of her. Jen takes such great care of our pup! Thank you!!
LoLa was sooooo excited to come spend the day with Jen when we had our three year old's birthday party. We were able to focus on the party and our children while LoLa basically visited the spa at Jen's. She can't wait for her next visit! Next week!!
Our LoLa couldn't stop "talking" about how much fun she had with Jen this last visit! This was a last minute booking due to a death in the family and needing to be out of town. Jen was awesome about everything and it was nice to not have to worry about our little girl while we had important family matters to attend to. Thanks Jen!!
Ginger was well taken care of and enjoyed the freedom of the doggy doors and playing with the other dogs.Jennifer was really flexible with dropping off/pick up. It is such a great feeling knowing your pup is being well loved and cared for. Thanks :)
I was out of town and left my dog Logan with Jennifer. Logan had recently broken his let and, as a result, was somewhat restricted in the things he was allowed to do. She did a great job of caring for Logan and keeping me up to date. In fact, he was walking better when I picked him up than when I left him. I will certainly utilize Jennifer's services in the future and would recommend her to anyone else.
As usual, Jennifer was awesome! She is always so welcoming of our dogs, and they are always so tired when we pick them up! She sent us pictures of them having fun and playing with the other pups as well. Jennifer is so great to have near by to look after our dogs when we can't take them somewhere with us!
This was the perfect place for my dogs to stay while we were away! Jennifer's home is very clean and tidy which is important to me. Even more important is the fact that my dogs just become part of her family while they are there. They are free to use the built in doggie doors to go in and out to use the bathroom or to get some fresh air and play. They may sit or nap wherever they are comfortable.( Including laps, and Jennifer and her husbands bed, where my babies chose to sleep! ) Jennifer was also excellent at sending me updates and pictures each day to let me know how my furry family members were doing, which was very reassuring! It was wonderful to be able to be away from my dogs and know that they were in such loving and capable hands. It is a huge relief to know that I now have a place for my dogs to go whenever we need to be away, that I feel completely happy and confident that they are in good, safe hands. My family looks forward to utilizing Jennifer and her services again in the future! I could not have been happier.
Jennifer more than met our expectations in caring for our little Emmutt. She was easy and responsive when communicating with us and gave him special treatment when allowing him to sleep with them to relieve his apprehension. We are so pleased in every way.
Jennifer such a loving caregiver for Taffy. We know Taffy's needs are met and she is safe and happy. We have no concerns. It has again been a wonderful experience for Taffy and peace of mind for us the whole time we were out of country..
This was out first time leaving Ginger with Jennifer and she had a blast and fit in with all the other little dogs so well. She made so many friends and had wonderful care. Got updates and pictures and Jennifer was very quick to respond to email & texts. Will definitely be bringing Ginger back in the future!
Jennifer is amazing! We have a dog that we rescued 6 months ago. She is very nervous and shy…we weren't sure how she would do around other dogs or people.
When we arrived at the "meet and greet", we were immediately put at ease. Jennifer was kind and patient and had total control over her dogs. She gave our dog time to get used to her surroundings and waited until our dog approached her. There is a huge fenced in backyard at the house and a doggy door for the dogs to use. (Her home also is extremely clean).
Every day we were gone Jennifer sent us pictures and texts about how our dog was doing. It was a great experience for us and our dog. We are definitely going to use Jennifer the next time we go away!
Kim and Bill
Jennifer was awesome with my two pups!!! I was hesitant to leave my dogs on a 4th of July weekend knowing my 2 yr.old dog is afraid of fireworks, but after meeting Jen my fears were quickly gone. Her home is so welcoming and her back yard is like a park. Her personal pets are also very sweet and my little girl quickly made new friends. I even had my other dog on meds and Jen totally took care of that and made me feel so incredibly comfortable leaving my fur babies. I would recommend her to any of my friends, especially if you have the kind of dog that thrives on that personal human interaction. My dogs had such a wonderful stay and she took care of my pups like they were her own. Thanks again Jennifer!!!
We had just adopted Pita and were worried about leaving her so soon with a dog sitter. Jennifer was wonderful to work with. The meet and greet made me feel at ease as Pita got along well with her dogs. We were sent multiple pics of Pita enjoying her time there. She even worked with us on coming to pick ip Pita later than we had planned on. I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone that needs a dog sitter!
Jennifer was awesome as usual, sending pics to me of Bogey with his doggy pals. Thanks Jennifer - you are the best!
This was my first time hiring Jennifer to watch my 3 dogs. They had a good time, Jennifer and her family took good care of the dogs, and she sent me periodic photos to show me what they were up to. I recommend Jennifer to anyone with small dogs needing a safe place to play!
Jennifer is so awesome!!! Our visit was months ago and I still remember how nice and friendly and professional she was.
I think Pom went there and thought he went to dog heaven - he had four great friends, was allowed to get on furniture and had a big nice yard to run around. When we came for our first visit Pom had so much fun he didn't want to leave, and when I dropped him he didn't even notice that I left because he was busily running around with his friends.
Pom had one meal a day and Jen was concerned about his feelings when the other dogs would have their breakfasts. That alone means so much to me as I know he's cared for, not just his well-being but also his happiness. It allows me to go on my trip without worrying about my baby.
Jennifer is Pepper and Cayenne's second Mom!! They love her and so do I!!!! She is the ultimate host!!!!!
Best doggie vacay ever! Bogey had fun with seven other furry pals. The photos Jennifer texted me daily were a thing I looked forward to because Bogey's tail wags so fast it is a blur in the photo. I know he had loads of doggie fun.
Our shiba had a great time at Jennifer's house and came home exhausted. He can be difficult and she did a great job with him. We will definitely be booking with her again!
Our Chihuahua, Lola, had so much fun staying with Jennifer. She is begging us to go on another vacay soon, just so she can visit again! Thank you Jennifer! We highly recommend you and appreciate how well you took care of our little girl!!
We knew Winnie was in caring and capable hands with Jennifer, and we so enjoyed the updates! Winnie had such a great week and I'm pretty sure she's missing her pals already! Would highly recommend Jennifer - she's awesome!!
This was my (and my dog Zipper's) first experience with DogVacay. It was absolutely wonderful! From the first time we met Jennifer, to the time we picked Zipper up at the end of our vacation, she was very kind, sweet and professional, and truly a dog lover! She welcomed Zipper into her home with open arms. I felt so at ease leaving him there, and the pictures she sends make you feel even better! Zipper loved it there, playing with the other dogs, and the freedom of running around all day is priceless! I would choose Jennifer again and again!
Jennifer is wonderful with our dog! I highly recommend her!
Jennifer always does a great job!
Fabulous, as always! Thanks Jennifer.
Another great stay for Jackson at Jennifer's. He was there for a longer stay this time (7 nights) and I knew he would be in good hands. He met some new friends and came home a pooped pup. Thanks, Jennifer!
I'm so pleased with Jennifer's care of Sully. He loves playing with the other dogs and I know he has great care because the transition when I pick him up is seamless. Appreciate her!!!
Jennifer is THE BEST ! Bogey luvs going to her house, and he gets so excited - it is playland for him to go see his human and dog buddies. I never worry about him when I am out of town. Plus, I get lots of cute pictures texted to me of Bogey and his pals so I can get my cuteness fix while I am out of town. Thanks Jennifer ------ you are the best!
Sully had his first stay with Jennifer and loved it. Not only did Jennifer accommodate a younger pup, she eased my mind with daily updates and photos of all his fun! She's very gracious with our busy schedule and I've already booked another stay.
Once again Jennifer has taken amazing care of my pups. They always come back exhausted :) I love getting the picture updates, those two get so much love from her and her family. Would never let anyone else care for my fur babies!
Jennifer is a wonderful dog sitter for my 16 pound Min Pin! From the moment we stepped in the door, we felt right at home. Jennifer dog sits small and medium size dogs, so my little dog was very comfortable with the pack. (She has 4 small dogs of her own, including 2 Min Pins.)
Her home is very clean and comfortable and she has a lovely, large fenced in back yard. She has a dog door, so the dogs can go in and out as needed, which was great for my dog.
While I was away, she sent text messages and picture updates, which I really appreciated and enjoyed. She is very kind and loving with the dogs and flexible with drop off and pick up times.
I highly recommend her to anyone with a small to medium dog. I plan to use her whenever I go out of town. Another thing that worked well for me is that I live north of Grand Rapids and she is on the way to the airport. I'm so glad I found her!
Jennifer is wonderful!
We are SO happy that we found Jennifer! The thing that impressed us the most right from the beginning, is that Jennifer wanted to meet us & our dog Gracie before deciding to care for our pet. This showed us that she cared whether we felt comfortable with having our dog in her home & felt comfortable having her take care of our pet. Our dog fit right in & felt right at home.

We LOVED all of the pictures that Jennifer took of Gracie while we were away. It assured us that our pet was in good hands & looked happy. Everyone in Jennifer's home made Gracie feel like she was part of their family! It was so reassuring knowing that someone was taking such great care of our dog and giving her love & attention. To us that is priceless.

It is hard to find someone you entrust your pet to, but with Jennifer she earned our trust right away & we knew she would take care of our dog as good as us, if not better. We highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for someone to care for their pet while they are away!!

Penny had another great stay at Jennifer's, we'll definitely be sending her there again!
Jennifer K has been a life saver for me as I have had to extend my reservation and she was very accommodating!! I was blessed to find her as Pepper and Cayenne enjoy playing with her dogs. She keeps me updated regularly and send me awesome pictures of them.
Jennifer K allows me to get a good nights sleep when away from home and my babies!! Pepper and Cayenne have a blast with Jennifer's dogs.
Jennifer is absolutely fabulous!
Jennifer is FABULOUS !
Jennifer is amazing!! I have not trusted anyone but family to watch my pup in the five years I have had him - I felt completely comfortable and did not worry a bit while I was out of town. Tiberius came home exhausted and I am sure he had a blast playing with all of the other pups at Jennifer's. She was kind enough to send me multiple picture updates, so I knew he was getting the care and attention he needs.
Jennifer was fantastic and I plan on 110% using her again if Oscar needs a place to stay. This was my first time having someone I didn't know watch him so I was nervous at first but my nerves went away immediately once I met Jennifer and visited her home. Oscar had a big yard to play in, kind people to love and watch over him, and lots of other doggie friends to have fun with. The picture updates she texted me were the best! I was so sure he was being well taken care of that I forgot sometimes he was even with someone I didn't know. It was an excellent experience I plan on recommending her to my friends. Thanks Jennifer!
Jennifer did her usual great job. Logan seems to have really enjoyed the stay. I feel much better about leaving him there than with a kennel.
Sadie had a great time with Jennifer and her family!! I don't worry about Sadie when we leave her with them because I know she loves it there!! Thanks again Jennifer!
While Gonzo's stay was just one night he had a great time with Jennifer and her dogs and the other dogs she was watching at the time. Gonzo really enjoyed playing with Nala ( a leonberger ). We appreciated the pictures and text updates for him during the day he stayed with Jennifer.

When we brought him back home he just slept the rest of the day as he was exhausted.
Jennifer and her family are awesome hosts. They have cared for Mattie several times, and she always has a blast. I know because she tells me. :o) Also because Jennifer is clearly a genuine dog-lover, and she sends photos and updates which give me great peace of mind. Her pack of little dogs is also very welcoming... they know Mattie now, and receive her with open paws. Swiper even gives me hugs. Mattie always comes home tired, but peaceful and calm. I think she has more fun at Jennifer's than at home.
This was the first time that I have ever used DogVacay and Jennifer made my first experience Awesome!!! Pepper and Cayenne are my children and I whole-heartedly trust their care to Jennifer!!! Thanks Jennifer Kelly & Kurt Lunning
Sadie had such a good time at Jennifer's. We appreciated the pictures of her having fun with other dogs! Jennifer's home and yard are so pet friendly and she is clearly a dog lover! We didn't worry about Sadie while we were gone! Sadie will definitely be a repeat guest at Jennifer's!!!
Jennifer was amazing with my dog! He was uneasy at first, but she took him out and bonded with him so he would be more comfortable. She sent pictures almost every day of him enjoying himself, and it made my day seeing him happy! Great yard for the dogs to hang out in, and they treat the dogs wonderfully!
We were thoroughly pleased with Hurricane's week long stay with Jennifer. He was able to lounge around indoor or outside in the large fenced-in area. Loved the updates with pictures throughout the week. He was well cared for and had fun playing with other furry friends!
Jennifer is great! She's easy to worth with and very easy to get in touch with. She sends great pictures, and treats all her dogs really well (guests included). Wouldn't hesitate to book again or to recommend Jennifer to friends!
Jennifer and her husband were amazing! Sparkle and Fiona came back exhausted and were also sad to leave. They have the perfect back yard for the pups to run around and play. Their doggies are also sweet and love to play with pretty much any dog that is up for it! I was sent many pictures of Sparkle and Fiona having a blast with their new friends too. Jennifer was very accommodating with drop off and pick up time, and had flexibility. We will definitely be using them again in the future!
This was my first time having a dog sitter take care of my 10 month old puppy. I chose Jennifer because of the exceptional reviews that she has received. It was right on as I'm also giving her high marks.

The meet 'n' greet was very informative and Jennifer was very patient and answered all of my questions. I felt very comfortable after meeting her and her canine family, and seeing my puppy interact with her four dogs as well as the dogs that she was taking care of.

During the time I was away, I felt confident that my puppy was being well taken care of. Jennifer also sent pictures every other day, which put smiles on my family's faces. We were looking forward to those pictures.

This was more than dog sitting for my puppy. He was not spending time in a tiny kennel, he was able to run around in Jennifer's huge, enclosed back yard. He also learned how to interact with other dogs. Thank you so much, Jennifer!
Jennifer was very friendly and provided quick responses to questions. Her home and large fenced yard was perfect for our dog. I knew immediately during our meet and greet that it would be a great match. My family and I really appreciated the picture updates she sent during Brody's stay and will definitely use her for our boarding needs in the future.
Dewey loves going to Jennifer's and we have peace of mind I recommend Jennifer to everyone. He has so much fun there that when he comes home he sleeps for a day!!!!!
First off, Jennifer was very quick to acknowledge my request which was greatly appreciated. She was very accomodating bringing my giant great dane into her small breed pack and home. Both Jennifer and her family embraced my four legged friend as their own. Jennifer is truly an an animal lover and is very considerate and caring with all of her dog vacay guests. Her huge back yard is a great place for any pup to have the freedom to run around. I received photos and updates which put me at ease while I was away from my dog Mia. My pup was very well taken care of and came home very tired. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone needing a dog sitter. She rocks!
Jackson ended up staying for the whole week with Jennifer and her pack. I know that he is getting the best of care and having a great time!
When I leave my Jackson with Jennifer and her pack, I know that he will be given the best care and have a great time with all her pups. He loves being able to run and play in her big backyard. I have no reservations about leaving Jackson with her - I know that he is in the best of hands!
Our Boston Terrier/Bulldog mix named Pickles had a great time on her vacation! Jennifer took great care of her and sent me photos of their fun times together. Our puppy came home happy and tired after 8 days of playing with Jennifer's own dogs. I highly recommend Jennifer, and will use her again.
Our dog loves spending time at Jennifer's!
Jennifer and her pack are the best. My 10-year-old pup leaves me at the door when I drop her off, and comes home tired and happy!
Jennifer was great with Tinkerbell! My rotti mix is very high energy and can be a challenge at times, but Jen truly seemed to enjoy her! We got pictures throughout our vacation of tinkerbell having a blast in Jens large yard and cuddling on her furniture! We'll book with her again!
I would highly recommend Jennifer to other dog owners. I have already referred others! Jennifer does a nice job of welcoming the pet and its owner into her home. She is very calm and kind with all kinds of breeds. Cooper is very large and can get in the way a lot. Jennifer was compassionate with him and she provided a nice home away from home for him! He enjoyed her large yard and socializing with the other dogs.
Jennifer does a great job. Logan is well cared for and I know I can leave him with her while I am out of town and he will have a fun time. Will never use a kennel again.
This was my dogs second stay. It was so nice to see how excited they were to come inside. They seem to love it. Not at all how they were at the front door of the kennel. Daily pictures are always nice.
Dewey just loves going to jennifers
This was our first time using DogVaycay. The experience was better than we ever expected. Jennifer was very friendly and flexible with our schedule. She even sent us pictures of Bo while we were away. The atmosphere was extremely dog friendly. I highly recommend booking with Jennifer. She has provided us with peace of mind knowing our dog has a great place to stay. :)
Jennifer is the first person I feel totally comfortable leaving Dewey with. He loves it there.
Jennifer is an excellent dog sitter. I keep coming back to her because I know my dogs are receiving
the best possible care when I am gone. Jennifer takes the time to understand each dog's temperment and individual needs. I love that that are being cared for in a home environment and receive lots of attention from Jennifer and her family! KarenThompson
Dewey LOVES going to Jennifers He never looks back when I leave. I couldn't be happier.
As always Jennifer was terrific with our Roxy! She always make you feel that she is excited to have your pet as her guest! Roxy loves it here as we can tell by all the wonderful pictures Jennifer texts us throughout the day. I wouldn't have my girl stay anywhere else! Thanks Jennifer for the peace of mind while we are away from our sweet girl!
5+ stars Fantastic as always!! :)
Dewey had a wonderful time with Jennifer. I never worry when we have to leave him. I am so thankful we have found her.
Jackson had a really great time at Jennifer's. Her family and pack made him feel right at home and he enjoyed playing with his new friends. He had plenty of room to run and play and was well cared for during his 3 day stay. Jennifer really put me at ease when I dropped him off and the photo texts of him with her pack were a wonderful bonus. Jackson will definitely be back to play and stay.
I have never left my pet with someone I didn't know before but a when I was about to cancel my plans to attend a family wedding out of town because I couldn't find someone to watch my Suzie, a friend recommended Jennifer K and I am so glad I took the chance because Jennifer was great. Suzie got to spend the night in an environment that was second only to being home. She was comfortable right away, the yard was beautiful, and she was treated like a family pet. Loved getting pictures as well from Jennifer letting me know that Suzie was settling in to her stay. Jennifer is a true dog lover and I can't thank her enough for watching our Suzie so we could spend precious and priceless time with family. I highly recommend Jennifer K, I will definitely be choosing to leave Suzie with Jennifer when I have a family and close friends are no longer on the top of my list of people to call.
Jennifer never disappoints me or my dog! And this time my dog got to visit Jennifer and her canines - residents and guests - for more than 2 weeks! I have never left my dog for that long with anyone, but I had peace of mind knowing he was in great care and having lots of fun. Thanks Jennifer. See you next time!
Karma was excited to return to Jen's house - she bounded out of the car and straight for the front door with her tail wagging. As always, Jen took wonderful care of Karma. The photos throughout the day are an added bonus. Thank you Jen!
It went great! Jennifer was very pleasant and easygoing. I was pleased to see Eve look so relaxed, when I was concerned that my dog would be a difficult match. The experience was exactly what I'd hoped.
We just picked up our two dogs a few hours ago from their one week stay with Jennifer. Simply stated, she was awesome! First, we had a great meet-n-greet where we got to meet her dogs, introduce them to her, and get a feel for the situation. We had no doubt that they would be in good hands. Throughout their stay, she texted us pictures of our dogs playing, relaxing, and sleeping and gave us updates as to how they were doing. When we picked them up today, they were bursting with energy and I felt as though they, too, had a little vacation (seems they made some friends) and I know they were well cared for. I definitely recommend Jennifer and would love to let my dogs stay with her again in the future given the opportunity.
My labs came home so happy and exhausted from playing in the yard. So much better than being cooped up in a kennel. Jennifer and her family made me feel so comfortable. For my dogs it was like visiting our friends, they were just able to stay a little longer and there were more playmates for them to enjoy. My youngest even has a new boyfriend(Larry).
I didn't think our dog was going to want to come home! He had a great time at Jennifer's. She does a great job of taking care of your family friends! We loved getting the text pictures every day. It makes vacation that much better knowing that your dog is having a great vacation, too!
My dog Karma loved her weekend stay with Jen! She was walked, played with, fed and well loved. I especially liked all of the fun photos that were sent to me while I was away. I would definitely recommend Jennifer K.
As always, Jennifer and Blake are so wonderful with our girl Roxy! She takes such good care of our small chi and we are confident leaving our girl with her family.
She is so accommodating and that helps give you peace of mind so you can enjoy your vacation time and know that your pet is having fun!
I can't say enough good things about Jennifer and her family. Dewey absolutely loves his time there and doesn't mind when we leave. It is just like being at home for him.
Jennifer is wonderful, and very accommodating!
We loved the photos that Jennifer would text us while we were gone. It made our vacation much more enjoyable! No worries with Jennifer!!
I have had a very positive experience with Jennifer as my dogsitter. She takes very good care of
my girls, and they receive lots of attention during their visit. The fenced in yard is ideal for the dogs
to be outside and be able to explore a little.
Jennifer truly makes the dogs a part of the family
while they are under her care. I highly recommend
Jennifer does a great job with the dogs. We are very comfortable leaving our dog with her.
Five stars again. Jennifer continues to knock it out of the park. Bogey luvs visiting the human family and the canines! Thank you Jennifer, not just for taking such good care of Bogey, and not just for all the great pics you text me, but thanks for giving me peace of mind when I am away. You are the best!
Jennifer went out of her way to make sure our dogs were comfortable. Thank you, Jennifer!
Our dog had a great stay with Jennifer. We thought he might not want to come home!
Jennifer was great accommodating my crazy schedule, and my dog enjoyed having playmates in her home. I highly recommend her!
Jennifer was awesome! Our senior doggies were very we'll taken care of and they seemed to be enjoying themselves in the pictures she sent us. The resident dogs were very friendly and I'm sure my dogs enjoyed having extra playmates:). I won't hesitate to call Jennifer next time we need a sitter. I highly recommend her!
Our dogs have such a great time with Jennifer! She and her family are so great with them. I love that she sends pics and updates of them as well. I know that they love it there as they do things with her that they only do when they are truly happy and comfortable with someone!
I was so happy that I found Jennifer to take care of my dog. I was able to relax while I was away knowing she was being well cared for and getting lots of love as part of a family. I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who wants their dog to have a home away from home!
I plan to reserve time with her again.

Jennifer is sooooo good with dogs. Our little guy had a night stay this week and it was great. She sent us pictures told Dru ( Our little guy) through out the day as well! We definitely found a good match for when we need someone to watch our special dog.
What a great experience for our family and my small dog Roxy! Jennifer has small dogs so she understands the little quirks that they have. They don't like to be cold, or to go potty outside. They like to be held and cuddled. She was so awesome with her! Jennifer asked me to bring some of Roxy's outfits so she and her dog Maddie could have a photo shoot! She texted us the pictures and it was so fun to see that Roxy was having fun and was being taken care of so carefully! My girlie has made some new friends and she will visit again soon!
This is a GREAT place to leave Logan. He has so much fun. It is also great to get Jennifer's photo texts of Logan while I am gone. Will never go to a kennel again!
Jennifer was so great! She and her pack welcomed my little dog into their home and took excellent care of her. The three host dogs are delightful, happy, welcoming pups, and I loved getting the pictures of Mattie chilling with her new friends.
Jennifer is great! She is patient with the dogs and provides plenty of playtime for them to get nice and tired. Her huge back yard offered our dog lots of exercise and fresh air. I highly recommend her home and wouldn't hesitate to use her services in the future.
It is such a relief to know that when we need care for our Giacomo when we go out of town, Jennifer is there for us. Giacomo was so excited to go back and visit Jennifer's family that he ran right to the front door when we got out of the truck. She will always get a 5 star pawsome! rating from me. Thank you for your great care.
FIVE STARS for Jennifer and her family. This is the second time Bogey has stayed with Jennifer and as soon as I turn off the highway he gets so excited when he realizes where he is headed. Luv the photos texted by Jennifer - Bogey has lots of fun with his new canine and human friends at Jennifer's house. I highly recommend Jennifer. See you again in a few weeks!
Jennifer did a great job. Logan must have had a great time because he was't ready quite to leave, which says a lot about Jennifer's hospitality. Will definitely use Jennifer again.
Happy dog, happy owner. :)
Five Stars, without a doubt! Jennifer is great, and during the meet and greet I knew that Bogey would have a fun time, and be safe, and be one of the family. Jennifer provided Bogey with a huge backyard for running and playing with her own three dogs, many walks, treats, and soft furniture to curl up on to rest and get ready for the next play time. And a bonus is that Jennifer texted me photos of Bogey throughout the day, and in every one Bogey's tail is wagging so much that it is blurred in the photo--- except for the photo of Bogey sleeping. Her photos made me smile while I was stuck in a hotel away from home for work. I have already made Bogey's next reservation.
Jennifer was a wonderful host for my dog Giacomo. Giacomo is a high energy pup that needed a little more socialization with smaller dogs. At the meet and greet I was a little concerned that Giacomo would not be willing to play with Jennifer's small dogs but Jennifer reassured me that It really would be fine. She was absolutely right. Jennifer is very knowledgeable and knows her stuff! Giacomo came home so tired from all the play, it was great. Jennifer even sent me pictures throughout the whole time he was there and when it was time to pick him up, we were running late and she was very accommodating. I really appreciated that. I will never use traditional boarding again. Jennifer's doggie vacay is where we will go from now on.
5+ stars (although my laptop gave me issues and wouldn't let me select them! =( )

Jennifer is great! She was available on short notice, sent me photos of Kobe throughout the day, and I had one happy, tired pup when I picked him up. :) Both Kobe and I look forward to his next visit! :)
It can be tough to find someone to watch 3 med-large sized dogs with one having special needs, but Jennifer took it on and was amazing! She knows a lot about dog behavior and really let them be dogs while still setting boundaries for them. My dogs felt right at home at her house which for at least one them, is rare. I could tell when I picked them up that they were happy to see me but weren't desperate to leave either (like some places they'd been)! They had a lot fun, got TONS of exercise and lots of snuggles. We will definitely be taking our babies back to Jennifer!
Jennifer and her family are so hospitable to our dog, Penny. Plus, Penny loves playing with Swiper, Chopper, and Maddy! It was another great visit.
Jennifer was just a wonderful host for our dog. She came home tired out, but very happy. ( Making a welsh terrier tired is really an accomplishment) We will certainly bring Bridie back again.
Jennifer provided excellent care for our Taffy. She went out of her way to give Taffy a wonderful experience. The way Jennifer related to us and Taffy gave us great confidence to go on our trip to Norway knowing that Taffy was in good hands. Having had such a positive experience with Jennifer will make it much easier for us to leave Taffy with such a caring and reliable person on our future trips away from home.

P.S. The pictures she sent to us of Taffy, while we were in Norway, was a wonderful way of staying in touch, not only with Taffy, but also with Jennifer. What a wonderful extra!

This was the best boarding experience we have ever had! The reservation process was quick and easy. We loved getting the text messages with pictures and knowing our dog was having fun! We felt that she had a little bit of vacation, too.
Jennifer is a very nice person. I think Cooper had a very nice day. We can't wait to take her back.
Jennifer was a great host! I absolutely loved getting pictures of my dog while I was away. You can tell that she truly cares for all of the animals that visit her home.
Jennifer was so welcoming and attentive to Penny's needs. She treated her like one of her own. Penny had a blast playing with her three new canine friends! Jennifer also sent several photos and was very flexible about pick up and drop off times. We are thankful for her help!
Benni stayed with Jennifer & her family for a long weekend and had a blast! She sent picture updates throughout the weekend. We really like the thought of him being with a family while we're away and this is a great alternative to a kennel. He had such a great time running around and playing with her dogs in their large fenced in yard that he fell asleep as soon as he got in the car to go home. I highly recommend booking with this host! I know we will next time we need a hand.
