About Jennifer

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Married empty nester couple in Rancho Mission Viejo (Gavilan/Sendero Community) with plenty of love to share caring for you precious four legged friends any time day or night. Our home is extremely dog friendly -- one story with no steps, concrete floors and a large doggie door that leads to an enclosed dog run. Dogs are allowed everywhere humans are allowed in our house -- on the couch, in the bed, even with us in the Jacuzzi if they like the water (or they can stand on the 6 foot by 8 foot Baja style wading pool step if they prefer to just get their toes wet.) We work from home so your fur babies will rarely be left alone. If we go out, and they like to ride in the car, we would prefer to take them with us to one of the many dog friendly restaurants in San Juan Capistrano or for a puppuccino at the Starbucks drive-thru. We promise to doggie parent per your instructions but be prepared that some doggie spoiling may occur while you're away because staying with us is like visiting Grandma and Grandpa's house! We look forward to hearing from you the next time you need a safe and loving place to leave your pets while you are away on business or vacation. Thank you in advance for the opportunity to care for your pets!

Jennifer Kerstner is a great pet sitter. She loves pets and takes exceptional care of them. The pet will be the priority in her care. I have seen her care for and her own dog (which is no longer with us) and he was treated more like a human than a dog. She cared for her son's dog over an extended period of time and he also was treated just like part of the family. My dog had to stay with her on numerous occasions while my husband was in the hospital and again my dog became part of the family. You can not go wrong with Jennifer as a pet sitter. Your pet will love her.

Jenn and her family are dog lovers! They will treat your pup like a member of their own family. I have know Jenn over 40 years. Over the years Jenn has watched my pets while we were away. I in turn have helped them out while they had a vacation. Her and her husband Bruce recently lost their white boxer Vinnie. Their home is missing the love of a pup. Jenn and her husband will give your furry family member lots of love and attention while you are away.

Our dog Walter took to Jennifer immediately and couldn't wait for us to leave so he could begin his "play Day". She has a perfect set up and Walter was anxious to explore everything. When we picked him up we could tell he had a great time and was ready for a nap. We were quite happy with Jennifer and her attention to detail and most of all to Walter.

It's completely evident that Jennifer and Bruce love dogs! My dog was so happy during his week with them! I love that they take so many pictures and videos of what they've been doing w/the dog. I would not hesitate to use them again.
Before finding Jen and Bruce, I felt so guilty anytime I had to leave my dogs. They got anxiety anytime they saw suitcases, because that signified that they would be being left behind, not getting the attention and love they are used to receiving, Now, I'm pretty sure my dogs would rather I go out of town so that they can spend time with Jen and Bruce! They cry with excitement every time we are driving to their house and they realize where they are going. I never have to worry at all about my dogs when they are there- I know they are being spoiled and having the time of their lives! It is amazing having dogsitters that love and treat our dogs like family- we are so appreciative of Jen and Bruce! They are the best!
