About Jamie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi everyone I am BACK after taking a major hiatus to prepare for my medical boards exam!!! My availability will be a little spotty over the next year (medical school year 3 is super unpredictable - try me for weekend sitting) but I am excited to start watching some pooches again!!!

Woof,
Jamie

Hello! I'm Jamie, a third year medical student who is crazy about dogs. I grew up with/was raised by a goofy lab and an energetic corgi and have absolutely loved dog sitting throughout my entire life. My boyfriend and I (2 sitters for the price of 1!) have had experience fostering all kinds of doggies in the past and have loved spending time with all of the new pals we've met through DogVacay. We've had experience with a wide assortment of breeds ranging from pit bulls to chihuahuas, huskies to dachshunds with all sorts of mixes in between. We love long walks, playing with tennis balls and catering to your dog's specific needs and personality. I want to devote all of my attention to your dog, and will not book multiple clients at a time. Please don't hesitate to contact me for a meet-and-greet!!

****I can only dog sit in your home at this time!!!*****

Jamie was wonderful! She jumped on taking care of our dogs paw when a skin-tag started to bleed (Riley is quite a bit older so she has numerous growths). The house looked wonderful and everything was in good working order. We will definitely hire Jamie again!

My boyfriend and I were struggling to find someone who could look after our pup Maya over Thanksgiving weekend...then we found Jamie! She was amazing. She was incredibly professional, conscientious and took excellent care of Maya and our apartment. She sent daily updates and photos which put us at ease that our dog was being well looked after. We came home from our trip to a clean apartment and a happy pup. Would definitely recommend her and use her services again in the future!

Per usual, Jamie did an excellent job taking care of our three pups. She walked them daily and sent plenty of photos and updates throughout her stay. We greatly appreciate all she does when we go on vacation, and we will continue to use her services in the future.

Jamie is a wonderful host who takes dog sitting seriously. She was prompt, professional, and most importantly, my pit bull/great dane mix was happy and well when we arrived back from our trip. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a responsible sitter for their furry friend. Thanks Jamie!

Jamie sent several updates (photos and text messages) throughout our vacation, and I can honestly say that I have never felt more comfortable leaving our animals with someone. She walked our three dogs on a daily basis, and they seemed happy while we were away. I would definitely recommend Jamie to anyone who is considering leaving their dogs with a pet sitter.

Jamie was a great sitter for my dog and I hope to have her help with Maya again in the future! Jamie and her boyfriend stayed at my house and watched my Boxer, Maya, for a long weekend. The meet and greet gave me the confidence I was looking for in my search for a new dog sitter; she was prepared, thorough, and very engaging. I appreciated the attention to detail because it made me feel very comfortable and that Maya would be in great hands! She was attentive to my concerns/worries and kept me updated while I was away. Jamie and her boyfriend really are genunie dog lovers and my pup was in great spirits when I returned, so I couldn't ask for anything more. Thanks again Jamie!

Jamie did an amazing job watching my two little Yorkies for a few days at my home. She was courteous, on-time, professional and I can tell my girls had a great time with her. They can be very timid but they bonded with her quickly. She was also very patient with their needs. She sent me updates and texts with pics of the girls to help make me feel at ease as well. I will definitely be using her services again :)

Jamie and her boyfriend were great! They stayed in my apartment and watched my 2 year old labradoodle over Thanksgiving for 4 days. They were great up sending text updates. They were very responsible, and took her on lots of walks. My dog was having some GI issues, and woke them up during the night to go out-they were such great sports about it! My dog requires a medication twice a day (pill) and they were comfortable with giving it to her with no issues. I highly recommend Jamie and her boyfriend to dog sit! I would absolutely ask them to watch my dog again the next time I go away!

Jamie did a great job sitting our dog. She was very accommodating to his schedule and needs, kept us updated on how he was doing throughout the weekend and was super responsive to texts and emails. I would definitely recommend her services!
Jamie was fantastic! She really helped us out at the last minute. Her initial meet and greet was very thorough -- she seemed to really want to understand our dog's needs. While we were away, Jamie texted us pictures of our happy dog out on fun walks. It made our vacation even more relaxing to know that our pup was having a great time back at home. And we came home to an orderly house and a very happy (and tired from all the fun) dog!

Jamie was a fabulous host for Riley! She kept great care of him and communicated well about how things were going. She was flexible and friendly. I'll definitely call her again! If you need a host, Jamie would be the perfect choice!
While we were away over the long weekend, we asked Jamie to watch Whinnie yet again. As usual, Jamie was responsive, reliable, and attentive. We're happy that Whinnie is in good hands when we're away. Thanks, Jamie!
Jamie was a terrific sitter. She was very accommodating of our schedule and clearly takes her responsibilities very seriously. She came to the meet-and-greet with a prepared list of questions, requesting important information that we hadn't even thought of. Jamie is also very responsive and kept us posted on Whinnie by sending pictures and emails during the weekend. Whinnie also seemed to be bothered by her ear right before we left for the weekend, and Jamie not only kept us posted on her condition, but helped clean her ears to see if that would help.

We were grateful to find someone as responsible, professional, and attentive as Jamie. We felt at ease the entire weekend knowing that Whinnie was in good hands with Jamie. We will definitely look to Jamie again when we're next in need of a dog-sitter!

I just moved to Hyde Park and needed someone to watch my dog for a night for an out of town reception. Jamie was professional, super flexible (able to accommodate my pup fairly last minute), attentive, and offers a fair price. She updated me after their walks, and my dog was relaxed and happy when I got home!

Jamie took great care of my goofy big dog Darwin (lab/german shep mix). Actually Darwin is generally cautious around strangers but warmed up within just a minute of meeting Jamie! I highly recommend.
...Another great experience. My dog was well cared for and everything worked out perfectly. Thanks!
My dog was well cared for and in great shape when I got home. Jamie does a wonderful job.
Everything worked perfectly. Couldn't have asked for better experience!
Jamie is wonderful. I am about to use her services for the third time in a month. My dog receives a ton of love and attention and exercise when Jamie is in charge. Whether for one night or for five nights, I never have to worry as long as Jamie is available. I recommend her highly to other dog owners in the Hyde Park area.

Jamie was great. We left our four year-old dachshund Cippy with Jamie for the weekend, and she took great care of him. He had back surgery last year, and so he can't really do stairs anymore, and Jamie was happy to carry him up and down the stairs whenever she took him out. When we picked up Cip he was really happy - he clearly had a terrific time.

Also, Jamie is very reliable. She was on time for the meet and greet and the pickup and always responded to emails quickly.

Overall, 5 out of 5. We'll be calling up Jamie next time we need a dog-sitter for Cip.

Jamie is great! This was the first time I used DoggyVacay and I was a bit nervous to leave my pups at another home for 10 days. Jamie agreed to travel to my home for an initial meet and greet. The dogs immediately loved her and I liked her friendly and responsible demeanor.

During my time away, Jamie emailed several updates, with pictures, showing my that my pups were enjoying themselves during their own vacation. I hope to leave my dogs in Jamie's care the next time I travel.

Thanks, Jamie!

It was a pleasure to work with Jamie! She was attentive, easy to get ahold of, and kept me up to date while I was out of town. She even sent a picture of my dog to let me know everything was going well! Delilah (my dog) had a great time, and we would love to use Jamie again in the future! Thanks!
