About Jennifer

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As an avid animal lover it is my duty to make sure all dogs in my care are treated as part of the family. I have owned dogs and cats my whole life and know how stressful it can be to leave them with a stranger. I take great pride and joy in caring for others.
I am a mom to my sweet daughter who absolutely loves having furry companions to run around with. This gives me the time and energy to take great care of your pup. :)
I do have a part time job, however I only work no more than 3-4hours per day a few mornings or nights a week.

I provide daily walks, leads, and a fenced in area for outside play. Toys, treats, and tons of TLC.

Inside, my home is their home. I treat all my furry guests as they would be treated by you!
Is your dog use to sleeping in your bed? Not a problem, I love snuggles! Don't let your dog on the furniture? Not a problem, I will be sure to enforce any rules you have set as to not confuse them once they arrive back home.
I live in the upstairs of a raised ranch above my parents so there are stairs to climb, however a guest room downstairs can be provided for the elderly pups.

My mom is also a great helper and also does boarding's with me. That way someone is usually always home with your best friend!

I have a wonderful cat named Tigger. He stays to himself for the most part but always tends to warm up quickly and snuggle with the pups I sit for. He can be seen playing ball in the yard with one of my other furry guests and daughter.

I do require your dog be friendly with or at least pay no mind to cats.

We would not leave Roo anywhere else!
Jennifer was an absolute delight. We are the worst when it comes to being organized and communicating but Jenn was there to pick up the slack! It was so easy to see that our King Charles Spaniel was well taken care of.
Jen is awesome. We have left Bella with her a few times now and it's the only place Bella is happy to go! We are loyal customers
Kooper is always happy when I pick him up from Jennifer's. She sends me pictures throughout his stay, which is great. Thank you for looking after this crazy guy!
Excellent as always, Georgie loves to stay with Jennifer and comes home happy and stress free, which means I'm stress free and not worrying about him!
Jennifer sends daily updates and photos as to what they have been up to, which is lovely, and he always looks happy and having fun.

Thank you Jennifer!
Jen was awesome! She welcomed Dexter right into her little family and made us feel very comfortable during Dexter's vacation. She sent us picture updates and even let us know when he was having some separation anxiety. She took great care of him and her house was perfect for a little getaway! He is sad to leave!

Would definitely recommend for a doggy vacation :)
Jennifer was very friendly and accommodating. She was flexible with pick up and drop off times, which was great since this was a holiday weekend. She sent plenty of pictures and it looked like our puppy was having a great time with her and the other dogs she was caring for. I would definitely re-book with her and recommend to others.
Jennifer treats our dog like he was her own. He loves to go to her house and loves the other dogs.
Jennifer was awesome! Rebel had so much fun on his vacay - he was tired, happy and glad to see me when I picked him up. Jennifer was flexible with drop off and pick up times and I couldn't be happier with Rebel's entire experience! I will definitely book with Jennifer again!
When we planned our vacation we were looking all over to a place to keep our dog. It had been less than a year since we got her and we had never left her anywhere before. Jennifer helped us to feel comfortable leaving her for almost a week and sent us multiple photos each day to show us what she was up to. We had a great experience with her and would definitely use her again in the future!
Our BĂ©rneise Mountain dog-Otto had a wonderful visit with Jen & her family. It was wonderful to go away knowing he's happy and so welled cared for. Thanks again Jen!
This was our first experience with a dog sitter. Jennifer was fantastic. She is very friendly and loves what she does. She kept us updated with pictures and messages. Our dog Duncan looked like he was having fun and looked like he felt at home. We will definitely use her again.
Jennifer took terrific care of our Molly! She was there for ten days and has come home happy and tired from all her play time! She sent pictures of her everyday! Will definitely use her services again,
Jennifer is excellent with dogs and I had wonderful experience.
Dakota had a great time with Jen. He came home tired and happy. Thank you, Jen!
Jen was great, again. Always very flexible with the drop off and pick up times. My dogs are always so happy to spend time with her and her daughter!
Scooter had a great time with Jennifer. We received periodic updates from Jennifer about Scooter in the form of pictures and videos which put us at ease as we could see he was having a ball.
Thank you Jennifer for welcoming Scooter at your home and taking such good care of him. We can rest assured in the future and will not feel sad leaving him behind.
My 2 dogs have stayed with Jen a few times now, and each time she has been awesome! I picked them up last time during a huge snow storm and had to park at the top of her street and walk just to get to her house! She helped me walk my dogs back up the street to the car which may not seem like a big deal but there really was so much snow that it was a huge help! She sent multiple pictures each day, and each time I have picked up my dogs from a stay with her they seem comfortable and happy, which is pretty much 100% opposite than the way they seem when we pick them up from a kennel. I will definitely be using Jen's services again because I can tell my dogs are happy and treated well when they stay with her!
I'm so grateful to have found Jennifer to care for my boxer Opie. I can't Thank her enough and will definitely use her again. Opie fit right in like he belonged there. I will spread the word to others in need of a dog sitter. Suzanne Torre
Max is treated like family and enjoyed his time on his staycation in CT. Jen and daughter are very energetic and Max has gotten a good amount of exercise and interaction. I highly recommend Jen to others for their pet's getaway while you are on a getaway.
Went down to NYC for the night and needed a place for my pups to stay on short notice. Jennifer was great, and sent out numerous photos just of the 30 hours they were at her house. They're now passed out on the couch, happy as can be. Thanks!
Heidi had a wonderful stay with Jennifer. Other dogs, a cat and Jennifer's family to play with really made Heidi's experience feel like a home from home for the holidays. Thank you so much Jennifer!
Jennifer has been wonderful! I couldn't have asked for anything better, she sent daily photos of Georgie & answered texts promptly, she has given above and beyond with looking after him. We will definitely be using her again. Thank you so much!
Jennifer and her family we're awesome! She sent me pictures of my dog while I was away, took him to the dog park and made him feel at home. He got tons of playtime from Jennifer, her daughter and other pets in her care. Kooper is looking forward to another visit in the future :)
Jennifer was great. Our dogs took to her right away, and made it easier to leave them with her. She took pics throughout the stay, which was great to get updates while we were gone. Will definitely be using her again for future trips.
Jen was great, she was more than willing to take on BOTH of our dogs, even though one of them is a little shy and timid. She was very flexible with drop off and pick up times, and she sent me pictures both days the dogs were with her... When we picked up our pups they were very happy :) This was our first time using DogVacay services and I was very pleased!
Jennifer had our Molly overnight and was well taken care of. Molly is spoiled and a BIG homebody that is usually traumatized when left outside her own environment. Jennifer did a great job, Molly was happy & calm when she was picked up.
Thanks again Jennifer I will definitely use your services again in the future!
Good experience, she even sent pictures throughout the day
