About Jenny

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a Dog owner who has in the past owned Birds, Fish, Reptiles, and Cats. I have cared for family and friend’s pets / homes while they were away and I currently have 4 dogs from the ages of 5 months to 13 years. I am also an NAR for People so I have a lot of experience in caregiving regardless of the number of legs your loved one has. (Perhaps Grandma just had a procedure and cannot walk her fur baby, I can walk the pup and check on Grandma for you). I have cared for animals pre/post-surgery, I have been there for the "final moments" and for the first moments. While I have given injections to humans, to date I have never had need to give injections to furries, I am open to instruction, by owner or vet. I have taken care of special needs (elderly, diabetic, special diet, allergies, medication, injured, ect) pets and have been an instructor for many years in Pet CPR/First Aid through the American Red Cross.

I look forward to helping you out by coming to your home and caring for your pets (cats/fish/snakes/reptiles/rodents/dogs/ what have you) where they are most comfortable. I ask that clients simply be honest with me about their pets and any precautions I may need to take. (always have a cookie, don't touch paws, ect)

When I watch pets, I like to spend quality time with them petting, playing, feeding, or whatever makes them happy (a trip outside, a walk or perhaps a special treat). I will always let you know how the visit went, and will always be honest with you. I know your fur-baby is as important to you as mine are to me, so I will always send pics and updates as well. If it's a dog walk or an overnighter you will get a pic and an update! My Fur-Kids frequent the (grandparents) farm / Dog Parks / forests, so they get lots of outdoor adventures (and yours are welcome to come along or we can make a special trip to the dog park with just your fur-baby). I am adamant about following your instructions! If your pet has boundaries, rules, training routine, or special diet, you can be assured I will follow the instructions/routine/rules.

While I do have room for the occasional overnight guest, I do not take overnight guests in my home too often as the City Code states 5 dogs and you have to get a Kennel license. (and I already have 4) So Overnight Guests at my "dog house" are on special consideration / approval. In my home, there are pet beds everywhere, Dogs on the furniture, tons of Doggie safe toys, cuddle spots, doggy blankets, and cookies given often. Our Fur-kids are spoiled! (They even sneak into the people bed often). We have a Dog Run if we need to separate out pups at yard time, and 2 airline kennels in case someone needs some "down time". (usually doors open for a hide away, unless they "Need" time out) I have watched (incorporated into my home) guests such as Shih Tzu’s, Boston Terriers, and labs so size is not an issue.

Oct 2016
Jenny watched our two Shih Tzu's while we were out of town. She took great care of them, gave them treats just like we do, fed them on time each day and sent us pictures a couple of times a day so we knew the dogs were doing good. It was a big relief while we were out of town to know someone was treating our puppies the way we do when we are home.

Jenny is very good with my dogs especially when they have medical needs such as vet visits, medications or special handling after a surgery or proceedure. She is depebdable and reliable. She attends to the special as well as the ordinary needs of those in her care.
