About Jen

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey! I'm Jen. I live with my fiance who is one of the best dog trainers I know! 5 years ago we adopted our own beautiful dog, Molly. We are such dog lovers! We are always extending our home to our friends' pet. "Anytime you guys go away leave him/her with us!"

He works overnight and I work in the morning so there is always someone home to take care of our furry friends! Plenty of space for them . Special care is no problem as we like to see what the owners routine is so we can try to copy it and make it as easy a transition for the dog as possible. When your dog stays with us it gets all the exercise and walks every 2 to 4 hours .Your dog would get to enjoy a huge yard in Jersey City. Your furry friends might forget your away when their with us as we try to keep them busy and train a little bit while they stay with us. Try Us out your dog will love you for it!

I left Chip with Jen a few months ago while I was away on vacation. We are blessed to have had her care for my Chip. So comforting to know that my baby was in good hands. Thank you for all your tender and loving care....I couldn't have asked for better service. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Jen's an amazing & responsible animal lover. Taking care of dogs & puppies is second nature to her. There is no one else I trust more with our Rusty!

Jen and her boyfriend, Briant were wonderful with my 2 pooches. I first had a visit with my dogs to meet them and see their place. My dogs seemed to like them and they have a wonderful backyard where the dogs can play. I have never left them with anyone in NYC, so I was grateful that they sent me pics everyday! I highly recommend them and I know my dogs would too!
Jen and Briant were excellent sitters for my dog Maya. Very good communication throughout. We got frequent photos and updates and it was clear Maya was getting good care. They were flexible with pickup and drop off. Will definitely use their service again.
Jen took care of my puppy and she did an amazing job! She sent me a lot of pictures every day which is very important to me. It is obvious how much Jen and her fiancé love dogs! I am very picky when it comes to leaving my baby dog with someone I don't know and I would highly recommend Jen!
Our little boy did very well at Jen's house. Jen was super flexible with drop off and pick up times and sent photos every day. She even reminded me to put an item of clothing that smells like me in his crate since he has separation anxiety. We will be back next time we travel. Thank you!
Maddox loves staying with Jen! It's a huge weight off my mind to know that he's getting lots of love and attention and exercise while I'm away. I know he's having fun.
Alfie was very happy to be back with Jen for Thanksgiving. He had a great time with her at his home away from home.
Jen was excellent! Sent pics and updates daily and you can tell how much she loved dogs! Teddy looked like he had fun on his dog vacay!
Our lab had so much fun on his DogVacay!! We were so lucky to find Jen and Briant. We were very nervous to leave our baby for an extended vacation and Jen made us feel so comfortable and we new our dog would be in good hands. Our dog, Wally, had so much fun playing fetch and running around in their yard. We got pictures and updates everyday. And Briant even took Wally running with him. They were very attentive with Wally and made sure he got plenty of exercise and love. They were also very flexible with pick up and drop off times. I would highly recommend Jen!!!
Maddox loves it here!! I was nervous about leaving him for so many days in a row - but he had a blast! Will definitely be bringing Maddox back to Jen!
My GSD Roman stayed with Jen and Briant for 8 days.

They were excellent dog sitters. Long story short, I highly recommend them and I will definitely use them again.

Communication was quick and easy from initial inquiry until the end. Roman is a very large and energetic puppy. Their backyard and schedules were perfect for him. Their apartment is comfortable and welcoming. Jen sent daily photos with little captions which were really sweet. Briant helped a great deal with obeisance training. I know Roman was truly cared for during his stay.
My pup had a great time with Jen R!

Jen was very available and responsive. She arranged a meet and greet with me and my dog and was very flexible with pick up and drop off times.

The best part- getting so many pictures of my puppy playing or happily napping throughout my trip away from her!
Jen was amazing since the day we met. She had a great attitude towards my crazy puppy. Sent me a lot of pictures and kept me updated everyday. Totally recommended, she and her boyfriend know what they are doing and dogs love them.
Jen and Brian did a great job with our dog. He needs special feeding and can be skittish around new people but they took amazing care of him! They were flexible with pick up and drop off times and eased all of our fears, they are perfect dog sitters!
Jen did a GREAT job with our two dogs. She was flexible with pickup and drop off times, close to our home, and able to send us regular updates about our pets. When we picked up our dogs, they looked relaxed and happy. Highly recommended. Will book next time !!
Amazing care, just like at home! from the first moment at Jen's my dog felt at home, checking her beautiful, clean and very dog friendly apartment to her amazing, spacious, dog friendly backyard, my Zoe was so happy to run free and play with the other dogs back there.
While i was away Jen sent me photos of Zoe, looking happy and relaxed, allowing for a stress free vacation for me.
Thank you Jen!
Jennifer is an amazing dog sitter. She makes everyone not only our dog feel welcome. My dog loves staying there. I will definitely use her again. She is the best!
I was VERY hesitant to leave my 5 year old Labradoodle with anyone! We had always taken him everywhere we went. Jen was very accepting and understanding of this fact. She sent daily pics of our furry baby and kept us up to date!

Our Labradoodle had a great time! I would most definitely recommend her services. We now have an "extended" family member whom we trust to take care of our baby when we're away. Thanks again Jen...thank you SO much!
Jen was a wonderful host and Alfie had a great time with her. As he was staying for two weeks we met beforehand and were shown around the apartment and very lovely, spacious back yard. She will be our first choice when we next need boarding.
My dog had a GREAT time at Jens Orchard. He is a young chocolate lab with a LOT of energy, so it was great that he got lots of playtime in their backyard. They left us completely at ease leaving him for the weekend, and we will definitely be using them again!
Our 1 year old boxer stayed for 10 nights. Jen and her husband are super friendly and have a very well maintained home and a really nice recently upgraded back yard with grass. Overall, the care was excellent. We received daily pictures showing jasper running around and having a great time. He didn't want to leave when we picked him up. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Will use again next time we are out of town! Thank you!
Jen & Brian were great with our french bulldog Dexter, they made him feel right at home, he can be finicky around other dogs but was at ease as part of their human/canine family for the day and night he spent while we attended a wedding. We give them a "paws up"!
