About Jennifer

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Boarding offered Friday- Sunday. Get away for the weekend and be reassured your pup will have 24 hour care.

Date nights: let me know what your needs are and I'll send a custom quote. Flexible drop off and pick up times.

Leisure: for the high energy dogs, I will take them on a hike along with my hiking buddy Howl. We can go anywhere from 1-5 mile hikes depending on your preference. Howl hikes with a backpack to carry water and we hike in the morning to avoid overheating. This can be replaced with or supplemented by neighborhood walks. I also have a senior dog and am well versed in incontinence care and oral medications.

Hi I'm Jen! My husband and I have over 15 years of experience caring for dogs and other animals (cats, fish, rodents). I currently have an 19yo 9lb terrier mix named Shadow (although we say he's a mini-lab) and a 3yo 50lb shepherd mix named Howl who passed his CGC last year. Both my dogs love other animals although Howl is the more playful of the two and enjoys playing tag and catch with other dogs. I live with my husband in a lovely cul de sac in Sunnyvale with a large yard for your pet to play. We have lots of pet beds throughout the house for naptime. Your dog will be spend the day playing in the yard or living room and will sleep in our room at night. Rest assured, your family member will have supervision 24/7. I send plenty of updates with photos and our adventures for the day.

Pups get two 30 minute walks during the day and spend an hour walking at the nearby park and/or a hike on Saturday.

Pups must be spayed/neutered, up to date with vaccinations and on flea treatment. Please understand that I cannot take food aggressive or dog reactive dogs.

Boarding: Boarding fees are for 24 hour stays, pickup after 24 hours adds a daycare fee of $35/dog.

Jennifer was super accommodating! We booked her over the Thanksgiving weekend about a week and a half prior and we are so appreciative of her great communication and loving care of our dog, Kona. She constantly sent us really great photos and updates of our dog throughout her stay. Jennifer was always very responsive and we will sure be using her again!
Jen & Kevin was so awesome to accommodate all my dogs last minute. We did a meet and greet at a dog park to see if our dogs get along. Howl and Coco are extremely cute, friendly and playful. Jen also gave me the reassurance that my dogs will be loved and cared for while I was gone. She sent me evening and morning picture updates on my fur babies with great comments attached. I kind of don't want to recommend them to anyone so I can keep them for myself (: They're pretty awesome and will use them again!
Jennifer did us a huge favor in accepting our minute booking. Zeus had a great time.
So grateful to Jennifer and her husband for taking such good care of my 2 pampered pooches!!!
My husband and I were vacationing in Tahoe with our dog and on the way home to Southern California, had an opportunity to visit friends and attend a Stanford football game, which is great, but what to do with the doggies?? Someone told me about DogVacay and I feel very fortunate I found Jennifer!!! I have a 9 1/2 cockapoo and 2 1/2 super mix. Our dogs usually go on vacations with us or a family member stays with them, so they were not used to sleepovers with unfamiliar people and dogs. Also, our younger dog is a bite timid and a mamas boy.
Turns out I had nothing to worry about!!! Their home was great with a beautiful well fenced back yard. Their 2 dogs (Howl and Coco) were very friendly. You could instantly tell their love for dogs. I got updated photos to ease my mind and Jennifer communicated very well.
There is no question that if I lived in the area I would use Jennifer on a regular basis. When we visit again I will be sure to set up another reservation with Jennifer!!!!
Thank you for everything Jennifer, Anne
Baxter loved his his stay! Would definitely recommend. Thanks.
So many pictures and videos of Kona, my girlfriend never felt away from home.
Jennifer watched our dog for 2 boarding sessions while we were in-town for a wedding. We asked for a late pick-up each night and Jennifer happily accommodated our request. Our dog has separation anxiety but Jennifer was able to handle it and didn't turn us down the second night ;) We sent several text messages during the vacay and she was always very quick to respond. We highly recommend Jennifer to all dog parents!!
Excellent!, great communication, sended updates with pictures frequently. My puppy seemed very happy and not stressed at all Thank you!!!!!
Jennifer was the best dog caretaker we've encountered yet. She was both friendly and professional and seemed very comfortable with our rather unwieldy German Shepherd pup. Her place is spacious/dog-friendly and she has a sweet-tempered German Shepherd that made for a good playmate.

As an added bonus, she provided daily updates of what our dog did that day (both good and bad) along with pictures. Thanks Jennifer!
Jennifer was great, she kept me up to date with photo's of Charlie and SMS messages.
Our stay with Jennifer was just what we hoped for! She took our dog in as if he was her own. We received detailed updates everyday with photos which was great! We would highly recommend her and totally bring our dog back in the future!
My two boys, Arthur and Merlin, had a great time with Jennifer and her two dogs. In fact, they did not seem all that thrilled to see me when I came to pick them up! Jennifer sent me lots of updates with photos, so I knew the boys were doing great. She also was very flexible at the last moment when I needed to add another day to their stay. All in all, a great stay!
This was our first time using Jennifer and have nothing but positive things to say. She is extremely accommodating of our travel schedule. Sent us daily updates with pictures of Pea playing, sleeping and playing some more. Jennifer even hand fed Pea so she can finish her meal. So sweet of her to do that.

Jennifer's house is perfect for the dogs with a nice, large backyard. So much, Pea preferred to be outside versus inside. That is so not like her! Jennifer treated our pup as her own, letting Pea sleep in their room and lounge on the couch with them. That made Pea feel at home right away.

I do plan on using Jennifer again since she is an excellent doggie host!
This was a first daycare experience for me and my 5 mo. old pup Iso, and it was an excellent one! Jen was very responsive to all my inquiries, and a meet-and-greet was set up next day. Everything looked great and despite the unknowns with Iso (potential for chewing, marking, bolting, fighting), Jen took a chance with him, and we arranged for an early morning 6AM dropoff (another accommodation that made Jen's service great). Iso spent 12 hrs that day and had a great time with Howl (Jen's dog). Iso didn't want to leave that day...had to drag him away. I plan to take him back next week...definitely a 5 star experience.
Our experience with Jennifer was excellent and we highly recommend her. She has taken great care of of our older beagle, Millie, the last 2 weekends. She has two other very friendly dogs to interact with and a very large nice secure back yard. She took Millie for walks and cared for her well. She also send us frequent updates of how she was doing. Glad to now have a second home for Millie when we travel.
Jennifer is great! She very knowledgable and accommodating. I received great updates from her. Will definitely leave Henry with her again.
