"Jennifer is the only person I trust with my pup!" Mitra A. Santa Monica, CA

Hi and welcome to Groovy K9. My name is Jennifer and I grew up with dogs, cats, fish & rabbits and have had very few times when I didn't have a pet in my life. Currently I have a wonderful rescue dog name Frida, an Australian Cattle Dog mix who loves to play with other dogs. I sometimes have foster dogs, but not any right now so she needs some new playmates!

*I ONLY TAKE ONE OR TWO DOGS AT A TIME SO YOUR PUP WILL GET A TON OF SPECIAL ATTENTION AND LOVE! ( I watch pups to supplement my writing and producing income and just because I love their company.)

If bringing your dog to me, I live in a nice artist's loft in Long Beach (which is part of a bigger house), it's great for dogs since the floors are concrete and we have a large fully enclosed backyard for your pup to play in. Lots of dirt and leaves, just how dogs like it!

I offer a minimum of one long walk a day for those doing daycare with me at no extra cost. My dog needs tons of exercise so if yours does too, all the better!

Your pup will get the BEST care imaginable at Groovy K9. H/she will be safe, secure, have fun and I will send daily pics to you so you always know what's up with your pup! Dog park and beach runs are also in the cards if your pup loves that kind of stuff.

I have been working with dogs for over five years and offer these new reviews as an example of what will be on my profile soon:

"Jennifer is extremely responsible and loving, and intuitive about animals and their needs. She has taken care of my dogs many times throughout the years. My current dog Charlotte adores her and can't wait for us to go on vacation again!!!" Dahli B., Santa Monica, CA

"A few months ago my family and I had plans of going away for a week and like many with pets were faced with the dilemma of where to take our dog and / or who might be able to watch her for an entire week. We hired Jennifer and were thrilled. The love and passion she has for dogs is nothing I've ever seen before.
She kept me updated as to how she was doing and often sent pictures of Sugar. She truly treated Sugar as if she was her own. I highly recommend Jen and I can say with confidence that you will not be disappointed in the care she provides." Mitra H., Los Angeles, CA

I've also volunteered at West LA Shelter as well as Sparky & The Gang Rescue in Long Beach and am pretty well known for my animal welfare work in Los Angeles. So happy to answer all questions you might have and will get back to you within 24 hours or sooner!


Boarding rate of $48/night is for a 24 hour period.

Daycare Hours are Monday-Saturday 7AM - 7PM. 34.00/day

I offer 1/2 day daycare rates - anything under four hours for 25.00, between the hours of 7 AM - 8 PM.

Thank you for considering me. Woof woof! And of course, lots of references available upon request!

Jennifer and her companion pooch Frida are just wonderful. My dog Zeke gets to play and is taken care off. Jennifer is reliable and is a true professional - giving attention and love to my dog - but also keeping me abreast with regular updates with Zeke and also if needed solutions to any problems that she sees during the long care that she's providing Zeke while I'm away. I feel that Jennifer and Frida are part of my family.
Zeke has a great time hanging out with Jennifer and her four legged companion Freida. I appreciate that Jennifer provides regulars "pics and reports" and goes above and beyond for care (dog park, longer walkies, etc).
I'm a new user and appreciated Jennifer's on-boarding process for all the "admin stuff" (meeting and greeting, first day, billing, etc). She took time to get to know my and my dogs needs. I'm on my trip now and I can report she really loves what she does! My dog is happy, has an active dog care giver e.g. "people" to hang out with - and I can always reach Jennifer. I feel VERY glad my little Zeke is in her hands.
Rocco's stay with Jennifer & Frida was more than any anxious-to-leave dog owner could ask for. Jennifer made us both very comfortable from the meet-n-greet until pickup time. She was not only very professional, but also very caring for Rocco's needs and my anxiety. Going over all the details, daily updates, and genuine caring concern set her apart from my previous sitter experiences. I would highly reccomend her services to care for your furry loved ones.
