About Clinton & Jennifer

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hendrix + Friend Boarding is serious about your dog's comfort and safety so we limit visitors to 1 dog at a time (plus our own dog of course). If you are a 2-dog family, we will consider making an exception.

We are two rockin' guardians both working out of the home that have had dogs since childhood. We enjoy playing name that breed, fetch, and "what do I have to do to get a treat around here?". We live "uptown" in Manor Park known for Northwest living with nice sized yards for romping around! Our dog goes out into our spacious (for DC) backyard every 2-4 hours for fetch or potty breaks. We both work from home so it's rare that one of is isn't around to provide companionship for your dog.

Have an active, smart dog? So do we! We're adept at keeping active minds occupied with fetch, training, tricks, and 2 long walks/jogs every day. We have a tunnel, hula hoops, and toys for rainy days. Have a laid back dog or one requiring special care? Our first dog together was extra cuddly but suffered from several health issues with a medication schedule. We're expert medication managers and have experience with incontinence issues.

We want to get to know you and your pup before we begin caring for him or her and require a meet-and-greet. Your dog must be:
• 2 years or older
• Spayed or neutered
• Housebroken
• Respectful of furniture and items in the home
• Between 15-65 lbs

Our rate is $45/night (24 hours)
$30/day for dog sitting

Clinton & Jennifer live in NW DC in a spacious and puppy-friendly home. They're both experienced pup parents who are looking forward dogsitting on DogVacay with resident pup, Hendrix. They've been dog sitting for friends, family, and neighbors for several years and are experienced with different breeds, sizes, and ages (though they'd prefer to watch dogs over 6 months of age and under 80 pounds).

Hendrix is a sweet and outgoing border collie who is well socialized and always down for a game of fetch in their large, private, backyard. It's evident Hendrix has plenty of mental stimulation at his house too, since there are tons of toys, bones, and doggie beds around for play or lounging around.

Clinton and Jennifer are a lovely couple who were flexible to work with, professional, outgoing, and clearly knowledgable on doggie behavior. They also both work from home, allowing maximum cuddle/play/attention. Highly recommended for your future stay!
Our dog, Milo, was with Clint and Jen for 2 weeks, and we couldn't have been happier with their care. They kept us regularly updated, and he was having a great time playing with Hendriks. He came back to us happy and healthy. I would definitely use them again, particularly for longer stays.
Jen and Clint are such wonderful dog hosts! They are completely reliable, fully devoted to their guests safety & well being, and just awesome people. My dog Jaxson had a blast spending time with them. He came home happy and tired. Special thanks to their dog Hendrix for putting up with Jaxson stealing his tennis ball. I look forward to having Jaxson stay with them in the future.
Jen, Clint, and Hendrix were wonderful hosts for our dog Bella. She spent a whole week with them and we got daily updates - pictures and even occasionally fun movies - along with information about how she was doing and what she was up to. They are very detail-oriented, clearly committed to the care and safety of your pup, and also work from home so the dogs are not lonely! Our dog is quite the intellectual and they kept her mind busy with tricks, games, and toys. I am definitely the kind of person who worries about my girl when I am not with her, but I had great peace of mind leaving her with these wonderful hosts! We will be back!
Jennifer and Clinton were excellent and their house was perfect to accommodate our dog Ruby. Everything they said they would do, they did. We loved the photographs they sent us since we do not have a digital camera or smart phone, so now we can use these photographs to document Ruby on the Home Again web site. But that's an aside and just a bonus for us.

Jennifer and Clinton are skilled and know immediately if a pet is not compatible with their dog Hendrix, who is a gentle and loving dog. We especially liked that Ruby had another dog as a companion in her separation from us.

Jennifer and Clinton let Ruby find the perfect place to sleep in their house. They monitor treats and only offered them when Ruby was sitting. Because of the intake evaluation with them, they knew Ruby's signals for going out so there were no accidents in their house.

As I said, Jennifer and Clinton are skilled and knew to walk the two dogs separately. I think Ruby got many more walks than we would offer her here at home.

We got two updates the first day we were away and an update each day thereafter as per our request. Jennifer and Clinton would do more if requested to keep you informed about your pet.

One of them was always in the yard whenever Ruby went out. None of this open the door and walk away. They pick up the poop as it falls.

As an extra benefit to us, Jennifer and Clinton brought Ruby to our house when we returned because they knew my husband is disabled.

Highly, highly recommended.
Jennifer and Clinton were great hosts. They were easy to work with from setting up the Meet and Greet, to scheduling drop off and pick up. They were flexible when our plans changed. Most importantly, they respected, and worked with our pup's cautious tendencies, and prevented any possible escape adventures. The photos and updates gave me a clear idea of how Dillon was settling in, and the care he was receiving. Confirming my impressions, Dillon was a tired pup when back home. Thanks for taking such attentive care of Dillon!
Jen and Clint are very professional and responsible DogVacay hosts. They were incredibly conscientious about making sure that we (including our dog Milo) were comfortable with everything to do with Milo's stay at their house. Clint and Jen provided thorough updates about how Milo was doing, and even managed to teach him a couple of new tricks. He was a happy and relaxed dog when we picked him up to go home, and we wouldn't hesitate to board Milo with them again.
Clinton and Jennifer took excellent care of our puppies. We will definitely use them again and recommend them without hesitation.
I am a crazy dog owner and Clint and Jen put me at ease every step of the way. I had texts, e-mails and great pictures. Skipper seemed totally comfortable when we picked him up.
Jennifer, Clint and Hendrix were fantastic! We left our extremely energetic hunting dog with them for 17 days while we were on a trip with little to no internet or phone access. We were a bit nervous as this was our first time using DogVacay, but we didn't need to be with Jennifer and Clint. They have spent extensive time training their border collie, Hendrix, in agility and other tricks. This has made them extremely knowledgeable about dogs, especially active ones. They are also very responsible and checked in with us if there ever was a question about our dog's behavior or dietary needs. Their border collie, Hendrix, is very darling. He bonded so much with our dog that our dog was giving him kisses and playing tug with him when we picked her up. We felt bad breaking them up! We will definitely ask Jennifer and Clint to watch our dog again.
Clinton and Jennifer treated my dog as their own. I absolutely felt comfortable leaving him with them. I particularly loved the picture/video updates. My dog genuinely looked sad when I loaded him in the car to leave.I know he'll miss them. Well...until next time!
Clinton and Jennifer P were our introduction to Dogvacay. They looked after our Border Collie Alvin for five days and four nights. Their enthusiasm, sincerity, concern and constant communication were a comfort. We were also impressed by the Dogvacay web site. We will be using Dogvacay again soon, and are pleased to recommend Clinton and Jennifer P. for creating an environment in which our Alvin could play, rest, and receive such wonderful care.
What an incredible time my dog Duke had when staying with Clinton and Jennifer! Their spacious, enclosed backyard provided the perfect city oasis for Duke to run to his heart's content. He got along great with border collie Hendrix - the two looked like they were having fun in the pictures I received. Clinton and Jennifer ensured that my dog was comfortable in his new surroundings, and went the extra mile to ensure that I could see his activities and progress. Thanks, Clinton and Jennifer! I would definitely book Duke for another stay and recommend others to Clinton and Jennifer for their doggies vacay!
Jennifer and Clinton were the perfect fit for my pooch. My 9 month old Pit Mix has a lot of personality and he can be quite rambunctious if he doesn't get the necessary exercise and attention. They had the patience to get to know him and make him feel part of the pack. He loved his stay there and kept looking back at them as they walked away from the car. Super sweet. Jennifer was very responsive and kept me up to date with pics and videos. Oh and he and Hendrix (their dog) became insta buddies.
What a lovely couple. They took pictures and gave updates daily. I was apprehensive as this was my first time using Dogvacay. They are true animal lovers. There is no better place for you dog.
