About Jennifer

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! We treat your dogs like if they are our own. We are family of 3 (my husband, me and our little toy poodle named Ponyo). We love all dogs-- and would make your dog feel at home while you are away. We live near Ortega park and will walk your dog daily for exercise. We also have large fenced backyard to play in. My husband and I both work from home so your dog will always be supervised. We insure you that your dog will enjoy their stay and have a fun-filled time. During the stay, we will text/email you pictures of your dog so you can see how your loved one is doing. Feel free to contact us anytime!

Bodie seem very happy being with Jennifer. She kept us posted with photos, at the park, playing with other dogs. We will use Jennifer again! Thanks Jennifer!
Since adopting our dog 5 months ago, it was the first time we left her to go out of town. I really missed her but knew she was in good hands with Jennifer and Jay. They sent me videos and pictures of her walk even though it was raining. She got along with their dog and made herself at home pretty quickly. Very pleased with them.
Jennifer V was awesome with our toy poodle! I loved her daily updates and photos. It is clear Jennifer and her husband have a genuine love for dogs, and I felt secure my pup was well taken care-of in their care. She was flexible in accommodating drop-off arrangements and providing extra treats. As a repeat customer who lives on the east coast, I appreciate having an option in the bay area when my travels take me out west. Thanks again!
Jennifer and her husband were impeccable hosts. Professional and super attentive to our little maltipoo. We received photos regularly and were confident that Kelly was being well attended to, including abundant play time, walks and interaction with their own dog, Ponyo. Would certainly book again!
Jennifer provides a warm and friendly environment for boarding ! She provided great care for my furry son, and make sure that he gets plenty of exercise and fresh air! She also send pictures and videos! Jennifer is great and I will utilize her services always!
Thank you - our dog had a great stay. It's comforting to have piece of mind while we're away that our furry family member is well taken care of. And the pictures (and videos) throughout the visit were so great, and much appreciated. The next time we need a place for our dog to stay, Jennifer will be the first one we reach out to. Thanks again!
Jennifer and Jay were great with our dog. Our dog is a bit shy, but she had a great time in their home.
We had a fantastic experience with Jennifer and her husband. I appreciated the "meet and greet" which made us feel good about leaving our Golden Retriever with them and their own (adorable) dog. We were only gone for 2 days/1 night but Jennifer texted several photos and short videos which were very reassuring to us. This was our first time using DogVacay but we definitely would again and sure hope to use Jennifer V again. Our dog came back home calm and happy!
Jennifer and her husband Jay are very warm and caring and we felt great about leaving our pup with them. They were flexible with drop off and pick up times and had good communication. We loved getting lots of pictures of our dog having a great time! We will definitely book with them again.
Jennifer was awesome! Great house, great backyard, her doggie was the cutest, about the same size as our dog. She send me pictures and updated me as we were gone, I would definitely recommend them!!
Our dog Ollie was able to adjust easily during his first stay with them. Jennifer and Jay are so caring, attentive and acccomodating with their doggie guests. Their home is perfect for dogs. We received many great photos of Ollie during his short stay. We highly recommend them!
Our french bulldog Max has had two great stays with Jennifer and her husband. He is always excited to see them and comes home healthy and happy from all of the walks and play time he gets at their extremely dog-friendly house.

We feel completely comfortable leaving Max with Jennifer which gives us peace of mind during our vacations. We will continue to have Max stay-cation with her!
My dog Leo had his best vacation ever and I had a great vacation too because I knew he was in good hands. Jennifer kept me updated and sent pictures every day. She was so loving and took great care of Leo. I highly recommend Jennifer.
Though it was last minute, Jennifer & Jay were very friendly & flexible about drop off & pick up. Our dog Mona Lisa seemed very happy & we were sent updates of her walks to the park & other activities with pictures & a video! Highly recommend Jennifer since I really like her calm & caring personality. Her house is very clean, dog friendly & the backyard is spacious & shady!
Jennifer was so kind, calm and welcoming to our dog, Cruiser. From the pictures/texts she was thoughtful to send, he had a great vacation! He was content and calm when we picked him up which was a very welcome change from our previous accommodations. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jennifer and Cruiser will definitely be visiting again!
Jennifer knows a lot about dogs! I was worried about how our little dog would interact with other dogs since she doesn't usually socialize with other dogs. I told my concerns to Jennifer and she said not to worry too much, and she was right - our dog was just fine! Jennifer also kept us posted throughout the weekend, sending us updates and pictures to make us happy.

I'm glad I found Jennifer and will ask her to watch our dog whenever we're away.
Charlie had a wonderful time staying with Jennifer and her husband! They took him on tons of walks and they sent pictures every day. He came home exhausted and happy after his vaca.
Absolutely amazing! Very professional and caring care giver. Jennifer sent us daily updates and we can tell our puppy was really happy with her! Thank you Jennifer and absolutely highly recommend!
Jennifer sends photos to keep us updated. We were happy seeing Mochi having a great time with Jennifer.
Allie had a fabulous stay with Jennifer and her husband. They took great care of her and Allie got to hang out with a couple of other small dogs. Our family enjoyed the pictures they sent of Allie at the park etc. I highly recommend them for dog care. Thanks again Jennifer!!
Jennifer was an excellent host. We will definitely us her again.
Jennifer and Jay took care of Crusoe very well. We received updates with pictures everyday. Crusoe got to play in their big backyard and also go for walks with them. We will definitely leave Crusoe with Jennifer again. Strongly recommend her.
Honey enjoyed her stay while we were away. Thanks so much for taking good care of her! Love the photos and updates.
First time our dog has stayed with a non-family member. Jennifer emailed several photos while we were away so we could see Cody having fun. Cody had a great time and hated to leave when we went to pick him up. Strongly recommend Jennifer V.
Jennifer and Jae were wonderful as always. Cece came back happy and healthy. Can't wait to use them again!
Jennifer and her husband were very nice and flexible. My dog, Koko is not friendly to other people, but he really loved them! Jennifer gave me some pictures and updated very often during my trip, so I didn't have to worry about Koko. They offered extend care when my flight was delay. All over, they were really great. I would like to ask them Koko's care for the next time!
Left my small bichon-poodle mix, 1 yr old with Jennifer and her hubby. Very nice people. They gave my dog a nice walk to the park and she had lots of space to play in their house and backyard. They treated her like their own. Def. recommend
Jen took very good care of Toby while we were on vacation
Jennifer is the best! She was flexible with pick up/drop off times and sent lots of pictures of our sweet pup while we were away! It's so great to know that your pup is healthy, happy, and loved while you're away!
Jennifer & Jay were amazing! We received frequent updates on our pup Pixel.Pixel was extremely comfortable, happy and safe at Jennifer's house He had a fantastic time! I would definitely be using Jennifer for our future trips.
Thank you Jennifer &Jay :)
Perfect experience, as always!
Excellent host and true dog lover. Her house is clean and neat. I like it that she has a nice backyard too.
Jennifer is an awesome dog-sitter. She has so many toys for the dogs to play with. I could tell that Mochi is very happy spending an entire day with Jennifer and Jay. So glad that I found them in dogvacay!
Jennifer and her husband are so awesome.
So glad I found them in DogVacay.
Mochi had such a wonderful time with them that when I went to pick her up in the morning, she was reluctant to go home with me :-(

Jen and Jay, you can expect to see Mochi coming to you at least once a week
We needed a sitter for our pup, Maya, on pretty short notice, but Jennifer was able to set up a meet-and-greet just a day before we needed to drop off. Everything went great, and Maya loved her stay! We received e-mail updates with photos and even a video while we were away- Maya looked so happy! She has some separation anxiety, so it was very relieving to find someone who made our pup feel so at home. Will definitely be coming back if we ever need a sitter again!
Once again Toby had a great time.
Jennifer was a phenomenal host. Gracie is an extremely shy dog, but from day 1 Jennifer made her feel comfortable and relaxed in her new environment. I received daily text updates with pictures and videos and was constantly kept in the loop.
Great again!! She was a happy camper!
Jennifer & Jay were great hosts. I received frequent messages, photos, and vids. I could tell by her narrative updates my pup felt comfortable and energetic. I had the unique situation of not meeting them in person but had my parents arrange the meet and greet and accommodation logistics since I'm overseas, so I appreciated their flexibility and additional communication of setting my mind at ease. Would recommend and definitely use as hosts again! Thanks Jennifer!
i have never left Toby anywhere over night, we both have to travel in couple of months and can't take Toby with us so we were looking for a family who can host him. Toby is like my baby so I am particular where I leave him, I met atleast 20 famlies and finally decided to do trial night with Jen and Jay. They fit all our criteria, they have clean house and backyard, they love dogs and own a small dog so they know how to handle Toby.
Toby sleeps with us and they don't allow dogs on bed but because he was not comfortable last night Jen slept with Toby.
My dog had a FANTASTIC experience staying with Jennifer!!!!!!! Couldn't have been any better. I was away for 16 days and never had to worry for one minute. My dog received outstanding attention, affection, love, exercise, and care. She was in perfect health and happiness when I came back, and I know she misses Jennifer's house right now! I was 100% satisfied and grateful for the photos and videos during my trip. Jennifer was extremely attentive and followed all of my special instructions. I am so happy we found her!
Clover loved staying with Jennifer. She was great, sent photos everyday. Clover was well taken care of and was healthy and happy when I picked her up. I will definitely try to book with Jennifer again. I don't want to say too many good things, because I won't be able to book with her. She will be all filled up!
Again, Jennifer and her husband are great. Buddy had good time there while we were away. Many Thanks!
Jennifer and her husband were awesome! We could tell our little Penny had a great time from the cute photo updates we received every day of our trip. We got to see her bonding with other dogs, playing with various toys, and cuddling with the humans. Although it's always hard for us to leave our baby behind, at least we knew she was safe and happy at Jennifer's! We will definitely be using them for all our future trips!
Once again, Jen blew me away with awesome care. She sent tons of photos, communicated exceptionally well, and my dog came home happy. Thank you again! Cece will be coming back to stay and play in the future!
Jenniffer and her husband are great! They took good care of Buddy. She sent me pictures and text messages to keep us updated. I saw pictures of Buddy running happily with other dogs in the park and on the sidewalk near their house. Their house is very neat, and their little dog Ponyo is friendly and cute. We also really appreciated their flexibility with drop off and pick up times. I highly recommend them, and we will definitely come back. Thank you, Jenniffer and your husband!
Jennifer and Jay provided exceptional care for my dog Cece. Jennifer was an awesome communicator. They have a loving home that is close to a park. I know my black lab enjoyed playing and relaxing with the other dogs. Cece will be spending more time with Jennifer in the future. They're awesome!!
We had a good experience at Jennifer’s house. We felt comfortable with the family and the house from the first time and were at ease when dropping off our dog Bubbles for a 6 days stay. They were very accommodating and flexible with drop off and pick up time. They took excellent care of him and sent photos and text messages each day. They have a nice backyard where the dogs can play, and they have a walk each day. Jennifer and her husband are super nice and friendly, and their little poodle is adorable. I highly recommend them.
Sugar had a great vacation at Jennifer's house.
