About Jamie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

I have always been a huge animal lover my whole life! My first job ever was working with dogs at a Dog Day Care, playing with and taking care of several breeds/ages all day. I used to own a cat and have visited/check-ups on family and friends cats while they were out of town. I also have been around horses for about 20 years (fed and cleaned stalls) and owned my own. Now I only have a 2 year old Lab/Aussy mix that I rescued and she loves to play!

I live on a private road on the Fox River, so if your pooch loves to swim, they can frolic in the water and swim! My yard is not fenced in, but I do have leads for those explorers on 2 acres. I am often outside and have frisbees, a herding ball, and tennis balls that we love to play with! During the spring, summer, and fall, I love to take the dogs walking/running on all the hiking trails that are located in several areas of the Vernon Marsh.

I allow your furbaby to roam and lounge anywhere in the house: couchs, beds, recliner, floor, carpet. I do not keep pets blocked in a room or caged (unless parents request it), I 100% allow playing and barking to the fullest. I am well aware that some pets may need training or to be persistent with training that you are working on with your pooch! Having fostered/rescued dogs, I understand the needs and challenges of some dogs. Every dog has their own personalities, I am fully committed to making your furbaby and yourself feel comfortable with any specific needs they may have.

Have a pet other than a dog? Maybe it is a cat or a horse? I am available to travel to take care of your other pets while you are on vacation. This includes anything from (for cats) feeding/watering, cleaning litter boxes, play time to (for horses) feeding/watering, cleaning stalls, exercising them two to three times a day.

I look forward to meeting you and your beloved pets!

Jamie was great taking care of my 2 year old dog for his first 5 night visit. He came home very tired and is now easier to get to sleep at night. I definitely recommend her and am glad I found a new, reliable sitter.
Our request was a bit unusual I guess in that we required our 2 pets to stay in our home. They have never been away (without us) and my wife felt they should remain in our home. Jamie went out of her way to accommodate us and was willing to come 2-3 times a day to let our Dog Coco out and take him for a walk. And spend some time with Missy the cat. Coco took to Jamie right way so that made us feel more comfortable with this arrangement. We are so appreciative and grateful that Jamie was willing and able to take care of our animals. And do such an incredible job too. We would most certainly use Jamie again!
