About Jamie & Kristen

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! Thanks for visiting our profile! We, Jamie & Kristen, are newlyweds who LOVE animals. We currently have two fur-children, Maci & Grae, who bring us so much joy! Maci is a 6 year old chihuahua mix who loves chasing her ball and snuggling under the covers. Grae is about a year old and we just adopted him from the humane society in December. We're not sure of his exact breed, but we do know is he is so sweet and gentle and just a big ole goober! We spend a lot of our free afternoons or weekends taking Maci and Grae to different dog parks or walking trails in the Birmingham area. Red mountain and Lochhaven dog park are our faves! We live in a 3 bedroom, first floor apartment with plenty of grassy areas right outside our door. Jamie comes home every day for lunch to take out the dogs and we're both off work by 3 pm, so they'll get plenty of potty breaks and play time. Dogs kennels will be put in the guest room (see picture) during the day and at night if needed. Meals are served currently in the kitchen but we have plenty of other areas if dogs need to be separated at feeding times. Our dogs are allowed on the couches/beds at our home and yours would be too! (unless you have other rules you'd like us to enforce!) Although we love all animals, Maci is small (9 lbs) so we can only care for dogs who are not aggressive towards other animals. Thank you for reading and we hope to have your doggies at Happy Paws Pet Sitting soon!

Jamie and Kristen were a great fit for our dog, who we won't leave with just anyone. They treated him with the same love that we give him at home and he had fun playing with their dogs too. They sent pics throughout the visit which were always fun to receive. Highly recommend…..they are true dog lovers!
My husband and I were going on a last minute trip and needed somewhere for Ellington to stay quickly. Jamie and Kristen were so flexible and great to work with! Ellington had a wonderful time on his DogVacay!! This made it easy for us to enjoy our trip too. Jamie and Kristen sent pics and text letting us know how the weekend was going, which was awesome! We will definitely book with them again!!!
Jamie and Kristin have been such a great help since my wife and I have both started jobs requiring long work hours. They have responded extremely quickly and the dogs seem to love their company. They also send pictures during visits which is awesome as well! Highly recommend
Jamie and Kristen were amazing! They were flexible for when I dropped off my dog and picked her up! They sent plenty of updates showing how much fun my puppy was having! Would book with them again any time!
Kristen and Jamie were phenomenal hosts for our two pups! They were quick to respond, very friendly, and most of all they had a ton of passion for animals. We are new to the area and we are ecstatic to find such great dog sitters in Birmingham on our first sitters! Thank you Jamie and Kristen for being so incredible!
This was our first experience with DogVacay and our hosts Kristen and Jamie were amazing! From the time when I dropped our puppy at their place till the time when we picked her up I felt that our dog is in very loving and safe place. Kristen sent us regular updates, pictures and even videos. In these pictures our 8 month old puppy seems to be very relaxed and happy playing around with Kristen's and Jamie's dogs. Our puppy even got to go to the beach with them, how cool is that? I have a feeling that our puppy is especially missing one of the hosts dogs (Grae)! For anybody who would like to have a caring, playful and safe place for their pups while they are away from home, I would highly recommend Kristen and Jamie. We certainly will use them again!
Tucker seemed very happy, and he was well taken care of.
Kristen and Jamie are very thoughtful and caring hosts. When I explained that my pups crate was too large to transport they went out of their way and bought an extra crate. This is so above and beyond what I expected! I was thrilled that I didn't have to keep looking for another option! They sent video and pictures during the stay. Thank you for taking care of my fur baby!! I would recommend and use again!
Kristen & Jamie were very sweet and took great care of our Sadie. Sadie got along with their dogs and had a great time with them and their fur babies at the dog park. They kept me up to date on what their plans were with Sadie and how she was doing. They met us at a neutral location so Sadie could meet their dogs prior to coming into their home. They made sure they took notes on dietary needs, vet info, health, any concerns or things that might frighten Sadie etc. We will definitely use Kristen & Jamie again when we need a sitter for Sadie!
Jamie & Kristen were beyond the sweetest people! I'm very cautious about who I leave me dog with and was very nervous about using this website but J&K went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable leaving our pup! We met at the dog park the day before our reservation to ensure our dog and their dogs got along and they were instant buddies! When we dropped Nala off, Jamie was more than patient with us as we went over all Nala's information and quirky things! (We may be a little overbearing dog parents!!) Throughout her stay, they sent us updates about what they were doing for the day and sent pictures! They were great and I couldn't have asked for better care for my pup! I'm more than pleased and will definitely keep them in mind if we need another sitter! Thank you Jamie and Kristen for taking such awesome care of our little wild one!!
We absoluely love our hosts Jamie and Kristen Parker! They did a great job taking care of our fur baby, offering plenty of personal attention, making us feel at ease while on vacation. They have a nice, clean home and two other friendly pups to keep him company. They even texted pics to let us know what he was up to while we were away. Dexter seemed to be right at home when we returned to get him and appeared to have enjoyed his vacation, as well (Much better than the typical boarding facility). We will definitely use them again!
