About Jennifer

27 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a dog lover and I would love to take care of your dog in my home. I am a mature, responsible teacher you can count on. I love animals and I would love to take care of your dog while you are away. I was a North Shore Animal League volunteer for many years and very familiar with all dog breeds. I have experience with puppies, adult, senior, and even rescued puppy mill dogs. I prefer to watch small breed dogs because my own dogs are small.
I am a teacher so I am available weekdays, weekends, holidays, and most of the summer. I live with my husband, my 22 year old son, and 16 year old daughter. Sign up for a Meet & Greet you won't be sorry!
My price is $40 a night. $35 a night for 5 nights or more. Price is discounted for a second dog.
We are well-known for watching only small dogs.

Thank you Jennifer!!!!! Updates with pictures throughout the day and positive energy coming from her home. This was my 1st ever experience using any sort of dog sitter. I felt at ease the whole time. My pal Pepino had a great time. Thanks again!!
Maxi seemed to have a wonderful day and Jennifer was lovely. Would recommend to anyone.
This was my first time using dogvacay and it was such a great experience! Jennifer is so amazing and sweet. She sent me the cutest pictures of my dog Fozzie and even came to pick him up for me! I couldn't recommend her enough :) I wish I could give her 10 stars!

Thank you again Jennifer!!!

Jennifer and her family were great. It was a last minute request and my Bub's first time away from family. He was super nervous when we left him but was as happy as ever when we picked him up. Jennifer also sends pics and texts and is quick to respond to any texts you might send her while you are away.

Thank you again, Jennifer!!

Jennifer was truly amazing. We needed a last minute solution for both of our dogs. She is sweet, accommodating and experienced. Even nicer is that her whole family is on board....her husband and 2 teenage kids all helped out giving my dogs lots of attention and love. We felt the house was loving and clean. My dogs also adored her 2 little dogs, especially Stitch. She continuously sent us pictures of the dogs with the family and was in touch. Her pricing was also fair. I would Definitely use Jennifer again and recommend her to others.

I used Jennifer for the first time for 4 days. She was wonderful with Rikki and sent me numerous updates with pictures and videos daily. She made me feel at ease leaving him with her and her family. Rikki had a great time!! I have booked Jennifer 2 more times!! Thanks Jennifer for taking such good care of Rikki.

This was my first time using dog vacay and Jennifer made it so easy. I felt very comfortable leaving Teddy with her and her family. They did all the things he is used to at home, like relaxing on the couch and even sleeping on her daughters bed, to make him comfortable. He also enjoyed playing with their dog Stitch. She sent me many pictures and updates during his stay. I will definitely use Jennifer again and highly recommend her.

Jennifer was a great dog sitter. We contacted her with a last minute dog-sitting request and she was quick to respond. Our dog Baxter made himself at home as soon as he arrived and was all tired our from the fun of playing in the yard and with Jennifer's other dogs. We will definitely return when future needs arise.

Jennifer and her family welcomed my little Gracie so warmly. My dog is a tiny, nervous girl, and I felt extremely confident and comfortable leaving Gracie with Jennifer. She sent me pictures, videos, and updates every few hours to keep me posted on Gracie's adjustment. Gracie thrived in her home, befriending her daughter and son. I feel a huge weight off my shoulders now that I know I have someone whom I can count on to take care of my Gracie while I travel for work!! :D Thank you, Jennifer and family!

Jennifer is wonderful as usual. Jazzmine loves her, and we are so comfortable to leave her with Jen. We received updates and pictures every day which made is so much easier to see how happy Jazzmine was. Thank you Jennifer!
Our dog Lady is a 12 year old King Charles Cavalier with heart disease and requires medication 3 X per day. Jennifer was terrific! From the moment we met her we knew Lady would be in caring hands, and she was. Jennifer sent us pictures of Lady every day and sometimes many pictures per day. It made us feel she was in great hands and happy. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone and I will certainly use her again if the need arises. She is a very caring person and my wife and I both had a great weekend without worries.
Regards,
Mike & Marie Harman

Jennifer watched our dog for 4 days while we were away. She sent multiple pictures and videos everyday. Her and her family were always around for jax, felt like he was well taken care of!
I used the service while my kitchen was being worked on. It's great that there is such a service out there for working people. Oscar was happy during his stay. Jennifer's house was clean and neat. Oscar was alone on one of the days.
Jennifer was a great host, and totally welcomed our pup from the moment she arrived. Remy had a great time playing with the other dogs at Jennifer's house, and coordinating with Jennifer was very easy via text and phone for drop off and pick up times.

Jennifer and her family were amazing! We had a meet and greet which went very well between us and the dogs. The next day my two pups were there for the long weekend. Jennifer and her family treated them as if they were their own. I received pictures all day/night long of the dogs playing with their new friends, going on walks and hanging out around the house and backyard. They had a great time and it really made leaving them behind for a long weekend, enjoyable since I was not worried if they were okay. I could tell from all the pictures they were doing more than great :) what a great family - absolutely recommend Jennifer and will be using her again if ever I need to go away again.

Loved our experience with Jennifer. I have two small dogs, one of whom demands a lot of attention! Jennifer's home is clean a cozy and she keeps in close contact sending pictures and updates. Her and her family made me feel like the dogs were really adored during their stay there.

We dropped off our pug mix for daycare, and he had a great time. Jennifer and her family are dog lovers, and it shows. The resident dogs are also easy to get along with. I would definitely recommend Jennifer for doggy daycare!
As the very proud, and often times overprotective, mom of my two very precious pugs, I was reluctant to try out this new service. However, with an awesome recommendation from a very close friend of mine who has used Dog Vacay in the past, I gave it a shot and very happy I did. We met with Jennifer a week or so before our trip so we could see how the girls would interact with Jennifer and her family. It was a great success, the dogs barely wanted to come home with me when the play date was over, haha I booked the stay over with ease of mind. Jennifer texted and kept in contact daily with pictures and updates so I was always kept in the loop of my babies days even though I was far away. After the trip, my dogs were safe & sound upon my arrival to pick them up :). I highly recommend Jennifer, she will be a responsible warm and caring friend for your dogs when you are unable to do it yourself.

Jennifer and her family took care of our two shelties like they were part of their own family. We have never left our dogs for this long a period (13 days) but from the meet and greet, we knew they would be well cared for. They honestly were not even in that much of a rush to come home when we picked them up! The family happily put up with the dogs little quirks and had no problem following our tips for feeding. Rest assured, if you book with Jennifer, your only fear is your dog will choose to stay on vacay!

Jennifer was awesome! My dog was upset to come home because he had so much fun with her and her dogs. Would highly recommend! Chaos looks forward to his next stay with her!
Jennifer was fantastic. Since moving to NY we've had a lot of trouble finding someone to care for our dogs when we travel, mostly because our one dog is so timid she is very difficult to handle. Jennifer was clearly very experienced handling dogs as she quickly made our furry little bundle of nerves feel comfortable, which in turn made us feel comfortable. She sent us periodic pictures and text updates letting us know that everything was going great, eliminating any worry or stress we might have had. To top it off, Jennifer was very accommodating with our schedule and made things super easy. We travel frequently so it is a huge relief that we found her.

Great experience from beginning to end! Jennifer and her family made Pepper feel right at home and he was all tired out from everyone playing with him! Jennifer kept us posted all along the way with photos and videos.
Jennifer is very friendly and helpful. She and her family made us feel very safe and welcome. We didn’t worry at all to live Jazzmine with Jennifer and we were right. When we came back, Jazzmine greeted us – clean, healthy and happy! While on vacation we were getting pictures of Jazzmine playing at home, outside, and taking walks. She looked so happy.

It’s so hard to go away and leave our dog behind, she is part of our family, but Jennifer and her family made her feel right at home, and made it so much easier for us. We knew she was in good hands.

Thank you Jennifer!

I was most definitely nervous to leave my baby but Jen pretty much alleviated my fears at the meet and greet. Leo felt comfortable immediately. Jen's dog's were great company for him too. I was especially pleased with Jen's constant contact twice a day without fail. Any lingering doubts I had as a new pet owner were gone from day 1. Jen has had lifelong experience with dogs and it showed. Lastly, I was grateful that's my dog's raw food needs were accommodated. Thanks to the rest of the family too for spending time with my Boo Boo :)
