About Jennifer

. I live and work as a nanny 2 days a week in Colonie, so i can go in and out throughout the day. Your pet will have plenty of me time, playing, going outside, walks, etc. I'm around pretty much all evening and weekends also. I've taken in many dogs and have really enjoyed it, hoping to have a few more new furry friends! I'm also only 5 minutes from the Albany airport if you're traveling in and out for convenient drop off and pick ups. I also require all animals to be current on flea & tick medicine. If you're interested in dropping your pups off for a day visit on Mondays, Wednesdays, and/or Thursdays i am around on those days!

As always, she was very accommodating and we had a wonderful experience!
We have used Jennifer to board Meatstack 4+ times. She is great with him. He loves going to her house and getting treats, love, and lots of playtime with other pups. We definitely recommend Jennifer! :)
My dog Chloe goes to Jennifer's house every few weeks when we are traveling to soccer tournaments. Jennifer is always reliable, flexible and happy to see Chloe. I receive daily updates and am never worried about leaving her. I would recommend her to anyone.

This was the 3rd time Jennifer sat our dog. She was able to take him on short notice. He's always excited to get dropped off there (right up until it's time for us to actually leave him). Highly recommended.
This was Banner's last stay with Jennifer before we had to move across the country, and we sorely miss having her to take care of him! She loved our pup like he was her own, and I really could never say enough good things about Jennifer to do it justice! For everyone who has a chance to book her for your pooch, you'll be so glad you found her! :)

We love Jennifer! Our pup loves her like a third parent, and he is always pooped out and content from all the fun he's had while staying with her and the other dogs in her care. Would highly recommend!
Jennifer as always was available in a pinch especially when my family was going through some very traumatic losses. She loved both of my babies and it didn't seem like they even knew we were gone.
Jennifer was amazing! This is the first time we left our dog with anyone other than family. She was extremely welcoming when I dropped Bodi off, communicated often throughout his stay (with pictures and captions) and Bodi came home exhausted from playing with all of his new friends!! We are very happy to have a new 'vacay' spot for Bodi!! Highly recommend.

Jennifer loved on our puppy, cared for him as if her own. Very tender and great care!! Will definitely use again. Thanks for loving our baby
I feel very comfortable leaving Henry with Jen. She has a nice way with him, and he gets to socialize with other dogs. I'm sure he'll be seeing her many times again in the future! :-)
.
This was the first time I had to leave my puppy at a sitters, so of course I was very nervous, but Mocha seems to have enjoyed her time at Jennifer's house. Jennifer sent pictures everyday, which eased my mind. Although she watches a lot of dogs, Jennifer's house was very neat and clean in appearance whenever we came by. She was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. I will definitely be using her the next time we go away.

So grateful that we have someone we can trust with Penny while we are away! Jennifer is great!
She was very flexible with us on times and it worked out perfectly!
We left our dog Chloe with Jennifer for 2 weeks when we went on vacation. Jennifer sent us pictures all the time. Chloe is a regular dog at Jennifer's house. She loves going there and is never sad when we leave her.We don't know what we would do without Jennifer!

This is the second time we have left our dog, Sierra, with Jennifer during a vacation. Jennifer has a great set up for dogs. She has a great fenced in yard and there was a dog next door to keep Sierra interested. We received a picture every day and Sierra looked at ease in all of them. I didn't worry about her at all and was able to enjoy vacation knowing she was in good hands with Jennifer.

This is the third time Jennifer's sat my dog and as expected, she did an amazing job.
Tiger had a great stay with Jennifer during our vacation! The first time we stepped into Jen's home we felt very comfortable leaving Tiger with her. She is enthusiastic, knowledgable, and very caring! Throughout Tiger's stay, Jen updated us with many cute pictures and texts about how he was doing and made sure we didn't have to worry at all. I would definitely have Tiger stay with Jen again in the future!

Jennifer was fantastic! We received daily updates and it made the separation from our dog much easier knowing he was with Jennifer and having a great time.
This is the second time Jennifer has watched our English Bulldog Mac for us. Both times were great! Mac got plenty of play time and Jennifer was great with sending us picture updates to let us know how he was doing. Would definitely recommend!
Jennifer is awesome! I have no need to worry for Missy when she is under Jennifer's care. Jennifer is reliable and friendly. Missy loves to visit. Thank you so much Jennifer.
This was the second time I left my babies with Jennifer and as expected they had a great time. She sent me pictures throughout their stay and when I came to pick them up, my Jackson didn't even want to leave. I can't thank Jennifer enough for taking such great care of my babies. She is definitely my #1 pick!!

Banner has stayed with Jennifer so many times now that she's basically his third parent in our busy months! He always comes back happy and tired, and we'll definitely keep choosing Jennifer for him to stay with!
Jennifer was great! I was a little nervous about leaving my dog with someone but she made me feel like i made a good choice and was always sending me pics and updates of my dog! Will deff have my pup go to Jennifers house again in the future!
This was Colvin's second overnight stay with Jennifer, and he was excited when we pulled into the driveway. Jennifer squeezed Colvin in at the last minute and it was appreciated.
Jennifer took great care of our 2 fur babies. We felt comfortable leaving them with her and recommend her.
Fabulous as always!
Banner once again had an amazing visit with Jennifer! We go out of town so often, and we wouldn't trust our pup with anyone else! :)
Banner loves Jennifer and loved his stay with her, as always! She does such a great job giving him a home away from home while we're away! :)
Banner loves Jennifer to pieces! She is essentially Banner's third parent during our busy summers when we're out of town all the time. He has a great time and she always keeps us updated with pictures of his goofy smile and tail wagging!
We are repeat customers as Meastack is well taken care of with Jennifer. :)
I left my 10 month old puppy with Jennifer while I was away for the weekend. He was well cared for and Jennifer sent pictures, which put my mind at ease. I'm glad he got to socialize with the other dogs while staying with Jennifer. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter. I'm sure Henry (my dog) will be returning! Thanks Jennifer!

Jennifer is an excellent dog sitter. She is accommodating with our schedule. We have used her for one night stays and for extended stays. My dog Chloe has visited her numerous times and is always excited to see Jennifer. I received pictures of her during the day to assure me she was fine. It is always a great experience.

Banner had another great stay with Jennifer! Highly recommend - she does a great job working with our schedule and keeps our pup happy!!
New to the area, needed a place for our two Aussies for the weekend as we had to travel out of the state. Scheduled an "meet n greet" with Jennifer and my pups. Very accommodating. Pleasantly happy with the environment, very organized and clean. Got pics and daily updates. Wonderful experience and thrilled to know we can trust Jennifer with our family pets.

Jennifer was great. Reliable, flexible, very responsive to communications, and took great care of our fluffball, Gigi. Would definitely recommend! Thanks, Jen!
Jen was so great about our drop off and pick up times and very flexible to work with! We love seeing pictures of our pups while they are away and having fun, and love hearing about what they were up to! Thank you!!
I have never left my two babies with anyone other than family so I was extremely nervous before dropping them off. From the moment Jennifer greeted us into her home I felt an overwhelming sense of comfort, and I'm sure my pups felt it too. They roamed confidently and I could automatically tell that they had taken a liking to her. I left feeling as though my babies where in the right hands. She sent me pictures which eased any lingering nerves of being apart from my pups. I will definitely be using her again! Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of my babies!

Great experience, Jennifer is a loving care giver. Myself and my dog are extremely happy! And she was happy to accommodate us on such a short notice. Kept us update date the whole time with pictures and text.
Jennifer seemed to really have a handle on things. She basically does this full time, so the dogs get a lot of attention and she is aware of how to socialize them. This is important since your dog probably won't be the only one there. Initially we were a little concerned about the volume of dogs, but quickly realized she knew what she was doing. and because she was around most of the time, the dogs would get a lot of attention. We also liked that Colvin wouldn't have to spend any more time in his crate than he does at home, which is just a handful of hours a week. In fact, I don't think he was crated at all. All in all a good experience and we definitely would recommend Jennifer and will be using her again when we can't leave Colvin with family.

Jennifer is an excellent host. She is always happy to see your dog. This is the fourth time Peanut has stayed with Jennifer and he is such a happy dog when he goes and when he comes home. She really makes the dogs part of her household. She also sends us photos of how our dog is doing while he is visiting. She is a very warm and welcoming host and truly loves the dogs.

Simba loves her and she's trustworthy I recommend her to anyone. I lost count on how many visits he had stayed with her
Once again, it's been a pleasure to have Jen taking care of my little ones. 8 days without there family is a long time but Jen's sweet disposition and her ability to anticipate what they need (e.g. throwing the ball, romp around the dog park, or just a cuddle) I know gave them comfort. Thank you again Jen.

Zeke's one week stay was great. Jennifer's home was clean and safe, Zeke got to play with other dogs and still got to cuddle up on the couch at night. I got sent frequent pictures and updates and did not have to worry at all. When it was time to go, Zeke was happy, healthy and tired, just as you would like. Very good experience.

Jennifer is great! Missy had such a fantastic time. I felt so comfortable leaving her with Jennifer for the weekend. Missy will be definitely visiting again very soon. Thank you!
I lost count the amount of times but always does a great job with my German Shepard Simba
Scrappy Loved staying with Jennifer. He had fun and came home happy. He wants to go back. Thanks again
Jennifer is our go-to professional for all our vacations. Lucy is very fussy but she's always happy to be in Jennifer's care. Dog Vacay and Jennifer have made leaving Lucy so much easier because we never have to worry about the personal care she's getting.

Our pug Penny is a repeat customer with DogVacay at Jennifer's lovely home! We are crazy pug parents who constantly worry about her; but our minds are at ease when she is staying here! Absolutely recommend!
As always Jen took care of our wonderful pups and this time for a longer amount of time then normal for them. I love Jen and I'm sure my pups can't wait till we go away again just so she can spend some time with her.
A very late review but I wanted to write a quick note and make sure Jennifer got the great feedback. We love how happy our dog is after we pick her up from Jennifer's house. We'll be using her services again soon!
Though I hate leaving our dog Z, when we have to, we don't trust anyone else but Jennifer. She always keeps us posted with message updates and pictures of how Z is doing and if she's getting along well with the other dogs. She is always pleasant in her communication and I know she's taking great care of our little fur baby. Highly recommend!

Our 2 year old olde english bulldog Meatstack spent New years eve with Jennifer. He liked her right away, enjoyed the fenced in yard and was very happy and comfortable with her when we came to get him the next day. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a great sitter.

Scrappy had a ball. Thanks
Jenniifer was a wonderful host for my elder dog. I was so weary of leaving my dog with anyone but Jennifer updated me daily & even sent me pictures while my dog was being looked after. I would recommend her most heartily.
Jennifer is the best! She was just as great the second time as the first.
Perfection!
Jennifer has a lovely clean home that is ready for dogs. She is warm and helpful and clearly enjoys the dogs in her care. Would definitely call on her again.
Excellent host for our pug!
You are leaving your pet in great hands with Jennifer!
Jennifer sends the best photos of the dogs - it helps to ease our minds while we are away!
Penny loves when she gets to visit Jennifer!
Jennifer was fantastic with our two pups! We went away for thanksgiving with no problems! One of our dogs needed eye medicine twice a day that Jennifer was happy to take care of. Her yard was perfect for them to exercise-Reagan loved to run it and Jojo loved to pee on everything that he could claim as his. She has a fantastic set up and can separate the dogs when she has more than one guest at a time. This worked well for Reagan since she gets nervous around dogs bigger than her. We plan to use her anytime we need the dogs taken care of!

Jennifer is great! This was the second time that I took Kratos to her place. She has an awesome backyard, that he just loved. She payed attention to the fact that he loves peanut butter! :) She also let him hang out with her on the couch, which is great. He was very well cared for and I couldn't have been happier. Thank you Jennifer!!

Jennifer was such a wonderful companion for my little ones. We just moved here from Connecticut and didn't know anyone, we instantly felt connected to her as soon as we met her. My babies who are always reluctant to meet strangers took to her so quickly. It was a relief as we had last minute plans that my son and boyfriend needed to attend (aka Yankee wild card game) and there was no one we could find to take care of our babies. She is a blessing and will be using to take care of our babies during our spring break vacation.

The facilities at this location were great. Jennifer gave our Lacy lots of love and attention. Spacious yard for the pets to play and run. Very structured.
As soon as we met Jennifer, it was obvious that she is a true dog lover. Our dog Macie had only been away from home once before, but we felt very comfortable that she would be in good hands in a happy, safe and dog-friendly home. Jennifer was very accommodating, from the time we went for a meet and greet and throughout Macie's stay and pick-up. She sent us pictures and updates of Macie playing with her new friends every day. It was such a wonderful experience for us and our pup, and we would highly recommend Jennifer to others looking for quality care for their dog.

Awesome! Jennifer did a great job taking care of my dog and he was very happy when I came to pick him up. I can not thank her enough for taking care of him. :) I will definitely be using her again.
Jennifer is awesome!! Our little Lucy (bichon) is so happy and healthy in her care.
Jennifer was awesome! We were gone Friday evening to Sunday morning, and I requested that she come to feed and walk Chewie 2x a day, since boarding is a very stressful situation for him.

Jennifer also came earlier in the week to meet Chewie and make sure they were comfortable with each other, especially since Chewie can be a bit difficult to handle.

We were totally at ease the whole time we were away. Jennifer sent regular texts and picture updates, and was completely understanding of the fact that we had NO service or reception where we were.

Chewie was very well taken care of - I'll definitely be requesting Jennifer the next time we go out of town!

second visit. Jenn's the best pet sitter . He always seems happy while hes there with the pictures that she provides.
Jennifer was great! This was Mac's first time away from home. He seemed so happy when for days after we picked him up. It seemed like he had a blast. Jennifer sent us pictures and updates while we were away. Mac got plenty of play time. She was also flexible on drop off/pick up. I will definitely be using her again.

Second stay for our pup! He was so excited when we arrived, and was totally pooped out from all the fun when we went to pick him up! Love the peace of mind we have when he stays with Jennifer!
Jennifer is great! She was super accommodating about pick up and drop off times and sent us daily updates with adorable pictures. I will definitely be using her again!
Yet again, Zenyatta loved being at Jennifer's! She updated me with pictures and is always extremely accommodating with her schedule. We'll be seeing her again soon!
Jennifer is great, very flexible with drop off and pickup times which really is a bonus!! I feel very comfortable leaving our pooch with her.
Believe the reviews! I did and it's true. Jennifer is terrific. She kept me updated when I dropped off my pup, then in the morning and before pick up time with pictures and notes on how my dog was doing. She seems like a great person and more importantly treated my dog wonderfully. I will definitely use her again in the near future!

I can't say enough good things about Jennifer! From the start, she was quick to respond which was extremely helpful since we were booking very last-minute. The set-up she has at her home is perfect - she has a great yard with a tall fence (that even our expert jumper wouldn't be able to beat), and we could tell that our pup thoroughly enjoyed playing out there with the other dogs (thanks to the photo texts she sent us to keep updated)! She has rooms to use for dogs that need privacy, as well as an open space with comfy couches for spoiled snugglers like ours. She is super friendly, clearly loves dogs, and we're so excited to have found her! Now we have no worries for the next time we need to go out of town!

From the moment you meet Jennifer and get a tour of her home, you know that your dogs will be in caring and capable hands. She is obviously a dog lover, but beyond that, a great people person. She will listen to all your concerns, quirks of how you feed or commands you use with your fur-babies, all so that she can provide them with the best care and closest experience to home possible.
Your dogs will be walked, loved, played with and well cared for. You can vacation with piece of mind as you will receive photos and updates of your pets.
Her house is clean, the back yard ample and with tall fencing. She is located conveniently close to the airport. We can't say enough good things about dealing with Jennifer, so we will leave it to our dogs, who were clean and happy when we picked them up, and in no rush to leave. That to us is the final and most important measure of a dog sitter.

Totally awesome! This is the 3rd time Peanut has stayed with Jennifer. He is happy when we leave him and she sends great photos of his stay while he is there. He comes home a happy boy and we love having a great place for him to stay when we can't take him with us. A great loving home away from home for your dog.

Jennifer is wonderful, Poof loves her!! I appreciate how flexible she is with drop off and pickup times. I feel very comfortable leaving our pooch with her.
Another great stay for Lucy with her wonderful friend, Jennifer!
Jennifer was a great dog sitter for my dog Chloe. We went on vacation for 8 days and did not worry about Chloe's well being. Jennifer kept us up to date on Chloe's activities and sent us pictures of her daily. Jennifer is very flexible with pick up times and drop off. Chloe enjoyed playing in the backyard and going for long walks.

From the meet and greet all the way through to Mattie's 10-day stay, Jennifer was absolutely top-notch! Her home and yard are gorgeous and extremely pet friendly. I received daily updates and was extremely at ease leaving our dog with her. Mattie clearly had a good time being at Jennifer's and came home a happy dog! We will be back!!!

Jennifer is OUTSTANDING!! Easily the best, most caring, friendly Pet Sitter I have ever met. Our daughter also agreed that Jennifer is SUPER!! We would definitely use Jennifer again and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who needs her to care for your dog. You'll have no worries cares or concerns with Jennifer. It's not just a job. She genuinely loves what she is doing & it shows. It was a very special experience getting to meet & know Jennifer. ENJOY!!!

Jennifer is the best . I was hesitant about leaving my pup at first being it was new to me to have a pup sitter. But she made him feel comfortable and provided pictures of him regularly . I would definite recommend her and would use her services again.

Jennifer was really great with Rogue and made sure he was comfortable and happy at any expense! She went above and beyond to see that he was relaxed and well taken care of.
Jennifer is the perfect host. She cares about Lucy in every way possible, making sure she gets plenty of love and attention. Jennifer asked all the right questions about Lucy
Jennifer is a wonderful person and a true dog lover! I wouldn't hesitate to ask her watch our Poof again!
Jennifer was a great hostess! She kept my dog entertained and made sure he had plenty of play while he was there. She was also very accommodating for pick up and drop off... as well as rolling with my dog's quirks.
Jennifer is wonderful with Lucy, our 13 yr. old Bichon Frise. She treats Lucy like she is her very own dog. Follows all the little specifics Lucy likes and keeps us posted with fun pictures while we are away. We are repeat customers and plan to continue to use Jennifer in the future. SO much better than leaving Lucy in a kennel!!!!

Jennifer was a wonderful host for my puppy Chloe. She was very friendly and you could tell she loves dogs. She was accommodating with my drop off and pick up times. She has a huge backyard for dogs to play. She sent me daily updates on how Chloe was doing. I will definitely use Jennifer again as my pet sitter.

Wow, Jennifer was great! We left our dog Polly with her for 8 days. Before we left Polly my children insisted on meeting with Jenn to make sure she was caring and loving. After we left, they asked if she'd be available to babysit them. So, she passed the 1st test, next the week with Polly, she sent constant updates and it appeared Polly had a better vacation then us. She was very attentive and dog centered, the backyard to run in also helped.
Overall, Jenn's easy going and caring nature made her a great choice for our family! I highly recommend her ( and her dog Harley). We look forward to working with her again!

Jennifer was a fantastic, genuinely caring host and incredibly accommodating and flexible for Willow's last minute stay! Willow got plenty of attention and play time with Jennifer's own lab, and I was given updates that Willow was feeling right at home (she's usually very shy and skittish!) I would not hesitate to have Willow back again and am glad to have found someone in the area for the future!

Jennifer is a wonderful find for us! She was excellent with Penny - we will absolutely be using her again!
Jennifer was the perfect caregiver. She gave Lucy great one on one attention. Followed all the little specifics Lucy needed- walks, food, bathroom breaks etc. And sent us a photo to show us how well Lucy was adjusting. Made us feel very comfortable while we were away knowing Lucy was in good hands. We will definitely bring her back again and again.

Jennifer was great with Cooper! I had some hesitation about leaving him with someone new, but that was quickly resolved. Jennifer went out of her way to give me updates on Cooper, pictures, etc. When I picked him up, I could tell he was very comfortable with her. I would definitely recommend Jennifer and plan to use her again.

Jennifer was amazing to work with - very flexible and accommodating to our needs as well as our dog's. Will definitely be using her again!
Jennifer was an excellent host for our pet. She was friendly and very receptive to all our requests. She took great care of our pet and he loved her. She was a perfect place for our dog to stay and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for a place for their pet to stay.

Jennifer was great with Daisy. She was very flexible with the hours and enabled us to drop her off early. My wife and I would highly recommend her and would use her services again.
