About Jen

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm happy to always help those in need of a dog sitter. I have a dog myself and know how difficult it can be to find someone reliable and especially on short notice. My apartment will easily accommodate small/medium dogs that are friendly, and my dog, Milo, would love the company. I live one block from Lincoln Park and always treat the pups to plenty of outdoor play time!

Jen was great! She was incredibly accommodating around our schedule. Our dog had a blast with Milo and can't wait to play together again.
Jen is absolutely wonderful! Benji has stayed with Jen and Milo twice now and both times were wonderful experiences. Jen is great at responding in a very timely manner, easy to reach, and sends photos to make my time away from Benj easier. It's also comforting to know that Benji has a pal in Milo when he's at Jen's. I couldn't recommend Jen more to anyone looking for someone to care for their pup. She's fantastic and great to work with!
Another great experience with Jen. Sydney had so much fun she did not want to come home.
Jen is awesome. She took great care of Sydney. She sent a lot of notes and photos. She was very flexible with arrangements for pick up and drop off.
Sydney came home very happy and excited and she is going back for another visit with Jen later this week.
Jen was my first DogVacay sitter and was absolutely amazing! I had to be out of town for a week and I was nervous leaving my pup Charlie for that long in a new place. During our meet and greet, we met Jen and her dog Milo and went on a walk to the park. Charlie and Milo got along very well and I felt confident leaving him with them. The pictures I received during my trip made me feel even more relaxed as Charlie was a happy boy and having a fun time. I hope he wants to come home with me when I pick him up tonight!
Our experience with Jen was great! Leading up to and during the stay, her communication with us was quick. She also sent daily pictures of the dogs. Jen was willing to watch our dogs still when one of them had injured himself before we were going out of town. Our dogs seemed to have had a good time. Also, Milo is adorable!
Jen was wonderful! She was super flexible and I loved that she sent me photo updates from my dog's Vacay throughout the weekend.
Jen was amazing. She took such good care of our dog and provided us with frequent updates throughout her stay. We will definitely be booking with her again!
Jen, thanks so much for taking great care of our puppy! We look forward to booking with you again. JoJo misses Milo :)
I can't say enough good things about Jen! We were nervous about leaving our puppy for the first time, but Jen was so patient and understanding which definitely helped ease our anxiety. She sent a couple updates each day, including some cute videos! She treated our little guy like her own, taking him on plenty of walks and giving him lots of love. By the end of it we didn't think he would even want to come home! We will definitely be using Jen in the future and will recommend her without hesitation.
Jen was great! She took awesome care of Lily while I was away and was flexible with pick-up/drop off times which I really appreciated. She sent me photo updates on how Lily was doing that made me smile. I would highly recommend!
Jen was very easy to contact, sent us pictures daily, and has a very neat apartment where I felt comfortable leaving my pup. I would definitely recommend her and plan on using her in the future as well.
Finding Jen & Milo feels like winning the lottery! My dog had so much fun playing with Milo that she Is visibly missing him. Jen lives close to Lincoln Park and took Darla to the park a lot, sending pictures and videos almost every day of all the fun they were having. She sent updates on how Darla was eating and behaving and she was really flexible when arranging the initial meeting, drop-off and pick-up. I stayed at her house a long time for the initial meeting as I really needed to feel comfortable about my choice of sitters (this was my first time to leave my puppy and it was going to be a long stay) and she was so patient with me. Your dog is in good hands with Jen!
Jen is a true dog lover! She took care of my 6 months old puppy Watson for 7 nights, and Watson had a great time with her. Jen took Watson and her dog Milo out 4 times a day, and took them to nearby parks for play. I loved seeing Waton's photos she sent me during my vacation. She is also kind and very responsive. I would definitely ask Jen again for pup sitting if I have to be away anytime soon.
Jen was a GREAT dog sitter. We loved the frequent photo updates she sent us. She gave him lots of love and took him to the park for exercise. Her dog is very sweet and seemed to get along really well with our dog. Langdon was happy and relaxed when he came back home. Jen will definitely be our go-to sitter the next time we need to go out of town.
Jen is the absolute best! She has doggy sat my pup about 5 times and he loves her dog and staying with them. I honestly do not know what I would without her!! She's incredibly kind, as is her dog. 5 stars just isn't enough. Thanks Jen!!
Jen is an amazing dog sitter. She was very accommodating and responsive. She took my dog Chewy to the park and sent me pictures daily. I felt at ease leaving my dog with her. She also has a very cute and friendly dog. I would definitely recommend Jen.
