About Jamie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

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!
Jamie was very accommodating to my crazy schedule. Loved the pics she sent while my baby was in her care. Very positive experience !!
Jamie took care of our pug Izzy last weekend and we were very happy with her service. It's nice to find someone who likes dogs and will take them into their home. We will definitely use Jamie again!
Jamie is great and we look forward to having our pups (springer spaniel and silver lab) stay with her again. Felt comfortable and knew they were going to be well cared for- and then got to see that with the pictures she texted of them. Highly recommend her!
It was only for one night, but our dog and puppy seemed happy when we picked them up and they were exhausted so they must have had fun.
Extremely satisfied! Jamie took great care of my two "babies". She will be the first person I check with for anytime they need a sitter.
Jamie was incredible with our girls! It was so comforting to know that they were with someone that loves dogs. I knew right away that we made a great choice. I also appreciated the text and photo updates that were sent to us while we were gone. We will definitely book with Jamie the next time we go out of town!
Was awesome, with my dog. Great person to do business with.
She was amazing with bubba especially since he was older made sure he was well taken care of. When I picked him up it seemed like he didn't want to leave. Will definitely book her again and recommend her to everyone I know.
Jamie did a wonderful job watching my dog! I went on vacation not having to worry that my dog was safe and being well cared for. I will be using jamie to watch my dog eveytime i go on vacation now!
Jamie treated our dogs as if they were her own! This was our first time using the service and she made us feel comfortable and at ease with leave our dogs with her. In the future Jamie will be our first stop to watch our dogs if we need to go out of town!

Even before setting up the stay for our dogs Jamie was responsive to all my questions and concerns. She really wanted to get to know the personalities of the dogs and their habits.

While we were out she sent us picture updates to put our minds at ease.

Just Awesome!
Jamie was awesome with our dog. She was very responsive with all of our questions. She sent updates and pictures.
She was awesome and took nice care of my dog. I'd highly recommend her.
Jamie was great! Took wonderful care of our dog Apple during our wedding night and we didn't worry about her at all. We actually received a picture from her during it and it showed Apple having a blast. Thanks again
We had yet another great experience with Jamie! She sent us lots of photos of Skip and he seemed to be having the time of his life. Jamie took him for a walk through the Mukwonago River, I can only imagine how happy he was considering he loves being outside and in the water! We will definitely book again with her.
Jamie was awesome! She sent us photos daily of Skip and his adventures. She definitely went above and beyond to make sure Skip had the best experience. He was able to roam outside in the yard playing ball and Frisbee with what she calls the “zip line.” I am so glad he could do that because he really enjoys being outside! He was very happy and healthy when we picked him up. I would recommend Jamie to anyone!
Simply put, Jamie is the best pet sitter I have ever had. I have complete faith in her care of my 2 dogs.
She made sure my dogs were safe and comfortable and followed all my instructions for their care.
Jamie went beyond my expectations to set up a long line system for my "run away" dog and my puppy so they could get supervised and safe run-around exercise time out in the yard.
She anticipated my dog's needs and asked all the right questions to coordinate the dogs' care.
Jamie was considerate to my schedule was able to coordinate a hand-off with my family when I was not available.
Jamie treated my dogs like they were her own.
Even though I was out of the country for over a week, she provided updates on my dogs by email.
Jamie was amazing with my dog! She went above and beyond by taking her for lots of walks and even on little adventures to a local park. I was so lucky to find Jamie and would recommend her to anybody!
I will certainly call on Jamie for all of Badger's future "vacays" :)
Jamie sent lots of pictures during Reggie's stay and he looked very happy in all of them. We also thought it was great that Reggie was very comfortable around Jamie when we picked him up.
Jamie was great! She took such good care of our dog Heidi. She updated us with photos while we were away. She was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her!
Jamie was the absolute best! We will be using her services again! When we picked Xena up she was so happy, she was comfortable and felt right at home with Jamie. The pictures and updates she sent while we were away were so awesome, letting us know Xena was in good hands. Great Fur Baby Sitter!!!
Jamie was geat with our two dogs. I was a little nervous at first because my girls can be apprehensive of new situations. Everything went well & judging by the pics we received, they had a great time. They will be staying with her again.
We had an exceptional experience having our dog, Copper, stay with Jamie while we were on vacation. Jamie took great care of our dog. She sent text message/photo updates while we were gone to let us know everything was okay with him. Copper seemed happy when I picked him up and it sort of seemed like he would have been okay with staying with her! Copper had a bad experience at a kennel several years ago and I was very relieved to see how relaxed Copper was with Jamie. I would highly recommend her and will definitely have my dog stay with her again when the need arises.
