About Jennifer

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love hanging out with my dog, Mak, when I am not at work. Mak is a friendly, playful 5-year-old Boxer mix. He loves to play with other dogs and will give your dog plenty of exercise. :) We are used to having dogs of all sizes around. Mak hasn't met one that he doesn't like. Mak is easy-going and is just looking to have fun all the time. He is really good about sharing his toys, too. I love dogs and enjoying having them come stay in my home.

I have a dog-friendly home and am willing to follow your rules with your dog. I have worked hard on training my dog (although there is still work to be done), so I understand when people have rules with theirs. My dog has full access to my home day and night, but if you prefer crating for your dog, that is fine. Mak sometimes sleeps on my couch or bed, but other times prefers the floor or his own bed. He will share any of those options with your dog, if that is what your dog is used to as well.

My home is conveniently located just minutes from the Dearborn train station and about 15 minutes from the airport, which makes for easy drop off and pick up on your way to and home from your trip.

Due to my work schedule during the week, I prefer to take dogs only on the weekends; however, if you are comfortable with your dog being at my house while I am at work, I am willing to consider sitting during the week, as well. My work schedule can sometimes be flexible if I am able to plan in advance, too. Just ask!

Mak and I look forward to hanging out with your pup!!

Jennifer was wonderful keeping us updated on how Jamie our German Shepherd was handling being away from us a couple times thru the night. When I dropped her off, even though it was her first stay, she just ran off to go play with Mac. I got a great surprise package of some great pictures of Jamie she was able to take while she was there. I'm excited because now if we have to leave town I have a safe and loving place for her to stay and we both will be able to enjoy my time away from home from now on.

This was our first Dog Vacay booking, and it was a great experience! Jennifer picked our boisterous lab up at our hotel this morning and dropped off her tonight. Our dog liked her instantly and didn't hesitate to jump in the car. :-) Jennifer sent pictures of her dog and ours romping together several times throughout the day, which made us all the more comfortable with the Dog Vacay model. We're on a big cross-country road trip, so this little break allowed us to explore the local museums. If we're ever in the Dearborn area again, we'll be sure to book with her. She's kind, flexible, and very prompt to respond to questions. Thanks, Jennifer and Mak!!

Jennifer is a wonderful dog sitter. This is the first time that I leave my dog with a stranger, but Jennifer love dogs and her dog, Mak is also a good company to my dog too. They play and get along very good. She even print out some pictures of my dog when we pick him up. It is really a nice gesture of her. I will definitely recommend her to anybody who need a dog sitter. Thanks Jennifer!

Jennifer was wonderful with our dogs, sending pics to us each day, just staying in touch with any questions or concerns (of which there were none). The girls with her almost two weeks and they had fun! We have a new friend in her and hope she's available the next time we need help. A perfect experience for all!

This was the best experience we have had after trying out 2 other dog sitters. Jennifer was simply superb. She kept up posted a couple of times everyday with pictures and activities our dog was into. Her own dog Mak is a darling himself and quickly became our dog's buddy. She developed 6 copies of the pictures and sent with our dog. Nobody ever does that. We are happy we found someone for long term.

Moose had a great time with Jennifer. We feel confident knowing that he will be well taken care of each time he stays with her. She takes the time to send us daily photos while we are away to keep us connected.
My dog loves coming to stay with Jennifer and Mak. Jennifer goes out of her way to be flexible and takes great care of him when I'm out of town. Highly recommended.
Jessica was great with Bitty. She kept me updated with pictures and videos and it helped me feel more comfortable while away.
Jennifer and Mak welcomed Scooter back again! Scooter loves the playtime with Mak and snuggles with Jennifer!
loved her, wished we lived closer to her
Jennifer was outstanding. Her dog, Mak, welcomed Scooter into their home and they were play buddies during the visit. Jennifer was so thoughtful to send photos of Scooter during his stay. Jennifer went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. It is obvious she is a dog- lover and gets a lot of joy from them. We hope that next time Scooter needs to go on another pet vacay that Jennifer is available!

Jennifer was simply an amazing host for my dog Tyson. She accommodated Tyson on a last minute request and was extremely nice and helpful throughout the process. Her house was nice, clean, and had plenty of space for the dogs to run around and play. She also sent me daily updates with pictures of what Tyson was up which made my day every time. She has a very sweet dog (Mak) that Tyson had a blast playing with all weekend. I highly recommend Jennifer as a host for your dog. You wont be disappointed.

Jennifer and Mak were awesome! She responded very quickly and was super accommodating with my last minute request. Sissy had a great time playing and lounging with Mak! Jennifer sent updates and pictures every day, and even sent home a CD with a bunch of pictures from Sissy's stay! Would definitely recommend and we will absolutely be back to stay and play with Jennifer and Mak! Thank you :-)
