About Jennifer

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi!

I love all dogs….big or small!

Dog Vacay nominated me and I was selected to be in the fall 2014 issue (Nov 17)of First for Women magazine. It is an article on women who make extra income in the holidays. However, I am doing this full time as it is the most PAWTASTIC experience ever! I have found my true calling in life with caring for these pawsome pups:)

My 16 year old son, Jake is amazing with all the pups and is the go to guy to play with!

A typical day goes like this..wake up, walk around our super cute neighborhood(the amount of time of the walk depends on the pooch…they usually let me know how far they like to go). Then we eat, play, nap, walk again around 11:00, chill, play, walk again around 2, chill, play, walk again around 5, eat, chill and then the final walk between 8:30 & 10pm. All the walks can be short or long, totally depending on the dog:)

For my overnight guests, they sleep with me (yes, in my bed if allowed) & my dog loving hubby in our California king bed! If they have a crate, the crate will be in my room too!

DAYCARE is offered too!!

If you like what you see, let's set up a meet & greet :)

Thanks and Woof!

She's the best ever...Buckets smiles when he see's her. Thanks Miss Jenn! I always feel Buckets is safe when I leave him with you!
Jennifer has been taking care of our dog for a while. She always does an amazing job.
As always, our little girl had a wonderful time with Jennifer and we got to enjoy our vacation worry-free knowing she was taken care of.
Gus always has a wonderful time with Jen and the other pups. And we get the cutest photos and videos of his vacation!
We have booked Jennifer repeatedly over the past two years whenever we need a sitter for our two Labs and have always been very happy with her care.

She's professional, responds quickly to messages and gives us daily updates with pictures to let us know how our dogs are doing. Highly recommended.

Oscar's second home is Ms. Jen's wonderful, welcoming and dog-loving home. She is a lovely, loving host. Oscar can't wait to be with her every time I take him. He loves all the friends he's made there. She works magic with the dogs who all take naps at the same time and go on great walks together. Experienced and professional and reliable. I love all the pictures and videos she sends us too. It's obvious she loves what she's doing and that makes the experience for everyone great.

Another successful weekend spent at 'Camp Jennifer' - we're so fortunate to have found such a caring and professional dog sitter - can't wait for our return stay!
Always happy with Jennifer!!!
Jennifer was amazing. Agreed to a meet-and-greet prior our daycare day, and she dedicated us a lot of time and answered all my questions. We have a very shy female lab and a very feisty terrier, and she managed to not only walk them with the pack, but to get kisses from both. Best thing: she send me adorable pictures and even a video with background music to show me how they were doing. No wonder why she has almost 300 five stars reviews. Highly recommendable! High paw!

Jennifer is always the best person to leave my sweet doggy with. Buckets loves her and her family and I feel he is safer with her then anyone else when I travel. doggy kisses!
JEnnifer took the best care of my dogs! They adored her and she sent the sweetest pics of them throughout the day. I would recommend Jennifer to everyone!
As usual, Jen was awesome. I've now lost count of how many times we've had Mo stay with her! He runs to her, tail wagging when we drop him, and we humans appreciate her flexibility with drop off and pick up. You can't go wrong with Jen -- recommend her as highly as possible!

Out-of-state family emergency...Jennifer to the rescue! I can't say enough AMAZING things about Jennifer! Topanga is always super excited to see her, she plays with of the other guests, and is completely wiped out from all of the walks and adventures that Jennifer takes her on. Thank you!! Woof!!

Super fantastic!
Out fog had an incredible experience at Camp Jennifer for 10 days - incredibly nuturing environment- great excercise, well fed, and lots of belly rubs! Terrific communication with pics and videos - 100% return!
Jennifer was extremely thorough during the meet n greet. You got the sense that she's not just accumulating dogs to fill vacancies; she genuinely wants to make sure it's a good fit. She sent daily photos of my pups on walks and made sure we were kept apprised of how they were doing. Most importantly, my pups loved her! Thanks for being so pawsome, Jennifer!

Jennifer is the best! She's PAWSOME!! my dog Buckets is in love with her and smiles and wags his tail when I drop him off, this is great for a SHELTER dog who was found on the streets as a senior citizen!! I recommend Jennifer all the time!
Jennifer also does day care! And boy were we glad. We were having an open house and didn't want our little old lady stressed out with all of the visitors. Jennifer to the rescue and our doggy had a blast.
Our little princess had a wonderful slumber party, while we packed up for a move. Jennifer took care of her every need and we were at ease that she was in good hands.
Jennifer took care of my little girl when I needed to leave town, and I picked up a very happy pup yet again:) When I went to drop her off, she was so excited to see Jenn that she was dragging me to the building! That just says tons about the amazing care and love she gives to the doggies in her care. We look forward to more vacays!

This is my second booking with Jennifer for our pup Stella, and honestly I don't see myself booking with anyone else as long as she is available. A very sweet caretaker with a great personality and fantastic communication, I never worry when I leave by beloved pup with Jennifer. Book with confidence!!

This was our first ever DogVacay experience and Jennifer is absolutely the best!! We left our Golden Retirever for 6 days while vacation and he had the best time. Jennifer is very warm and really in tune with their needs. My dog come to find out had a hard time going potty while being a leash and she was so patient, and persistent eventually he came around. Love the photos and video messages daily so we could see how he was doing. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Jennifer is very caring and very methodical about making sure all instructions have been followed. You feel that she will responsibly take care of your pooch. We have relied on Jennifer before, and she has always been terrific.
Jennifer was amazing to our little old lady. She is an older dog, a finicky eater with a nervous stomach, yet when she's with Jennifer, she is relaxed and happy and that allowed us to enjoy our weekend getaway.
As usual, Goldie was in superb hands while I was away. I know I've said this before but I am so comfortable leaving Goldie with Jennifer, it makes my vacation thousands of times better.
Amazing as always! Woof!
This is my second time booking Jennifer to watch our pitbull Ice and Jennifer makes everything very easy and comfortable in terms of the transition of dropping Ice off for the couple of days I was gone. She takes great care of Ice and updates me daily as to his routine and any insights. I also love that she sends pictures of my baby boy. I will definitely be booking Jennifer again!

I couldn't be happier to have found Jennifer! Great energy and positive spirit! Thank you for taking such good care of our Zeus!!!
Jennifer is amazing! I was in a pinch to find a dog sitter and she automatically made me feel confident in my decision to choose her. So incredibly easy to communicate with and you can tell she really does love watching your fur-babies. I will definitely have her watch Beans again and I'm so happy I found someone I can trust! Also, she sends you the best pictures of your dog!

Jennifer is the BEST!!! She took wonderful care of my 15 year old dog. Knowing Puppo was in great hands, it made my vacation much more enjoyable. Jennifer was as always very flexible dropping and picking up. Without a doubt, I will go back to Jennifer for my next trip.
Read More...
We love and trust Jennifer completely! Always reliable and a great experience.
Jen is the best! I've been taking my hyper pit bull, Kane, to her for a few months now. As soon as I walk through the front gate, my dog doesn't even know I exist because she's always excited to play with his furry friends. And, as a bonus, I always received pics and videos to help ease my mind. Jen is always accommodating and flexible. She is patient, dedicated, kind and knows her stuff when it comes to dogs. Two paws up!
Read More...
Gus had a wonderful time and we got so many adorable photos and videos to let us know what he was up to! He always loves to go stay with Jen. This was his longest vacay so far - two full weeks - and he did great and was very well cared for.
Jen was fantastic. I've never seen my dog warm up to someone more quickly. This was his first time with a sitter and it seemed like they really enjoyed each other. Going to Jen next time Buska needs a Doggy Vaca for sure. Thanks Jen!
Jen provides the most fun, loving home in which I could possibly leave my dog. He has non-stop fun with the other dogs there and receives all the love and attention a mommy could ever hope for her precious pet. Jen sends several adorable pictures and videos every day, which offer a glimpse into the great experience my dog has every time he is there. I'm about to leave him in her care for 10 nights and have absolutely no doubt he will be perfectly taken care of and have a blast too!

My dog absolutely LOVES Jennifer! We have been using Jennifer's boarding services for almost 2y and we are so grateful to have found her! She loves what she does and it shows :)
We are so happy that we found Jennifer to watch our beloved Miles! She is so wonderful with him! She usually has a few dogs over to play with, which makes for a relaxing restful time when Miles comes home ;) I know that my baby boy is in good hands when left with Jennifer. I have no worries when I am away. Looking forward to many more stays with this host!!

Jennifer is so awesome! Topanga lights up when she sees her ??
See rview for Feb 14 - March 11th trip. This reservation is an extension of that.
Jennifer was very flexible about adding a day before and extendng her stay by a day when I had a long trip planned. These 2 days relate to my previous review for Feb 14 - March 11th trip.
I'm so glad that Jennifer, her husband and son are Sadie's second family. And of course all of the other wonderful dogs that come and play. Sadie (all 19 pounds) can be a bit of an alpha dog and Jennifer keeps her in check so that everyone gets along. Jennifer sends me pictures and videos regularly showng Sadie playing wih all these different dogs and havng a really fun time. Or she sends a picture of Sadie crashed out on the couch or in her bed from playing all day.

This past time Sadie stayed with Jennifer I was traveling for several weeks outside the country. When I was able to get a phone or internet signal I would receive a bunch of Jennifer's e-mails. I love gettng my "Sadie Updates". It made me miss her more but, I knew she was loved, well cared for and having fun. I wasn't sure she would want to leave her scond family. However - she ran to me when I got home.

But, Sadie will get to visit her scond home again in the future.

Miss Jenn is wonderful! Buckets has warmed up to her and now he wags his tail and is happy to see her when I drop him off. Miss Jenn has learned his habits and allows him the space to be by himself if he needs it. He gets enough walks and socialization with the other pups and Miss Jenn sends me videos of Bucket's daily. LOVE HER! I recommend her to all my dog friends..

Jennifer is simply THE best. I feel so comfortable leaving my 6 month old golden with her. Especially since I know he can be a handful. She is so gracious to us and our crazy schedules. My dog actually cannot wait to go to her house and is happy being left with her. There is no greater feeling in this world knowing my fur child is taken care of fully!
Read More...
My pups and I absolutely love Jennifer! I don't trust anyone else to take care of them. Whenever I am going on a short trip or have a long day at work, I take comfort in knowing I can leave my house key for Jennifer and she knows the routine. She's AMAZING!!!
Read More...
I never have to worry about Jeter when he's with Jennifer. I know he's feeling right at home, especially with all of the great photos she sends. It makes it so much better knowing he's with her.
Thank you, Jennifer! You're an absolute gem and I feel so happy my fur babies are so well looked after when they're with you. Thank you for staying up for the unexpected late pick up!
Jennifer is the BEST! My dogs hate me picking them up :)
My Yorkie Zoey and and I absolutely loved Jennifer!! From the meet and greet, I could tell Zoey was comfortable in her home, lounging on the couch while Jennifer and I had a conversation to get to know one another. Throughout Zoey's visit, Jennifer sent me adorable pictures and videos of Zoey to keep my mommy nerves relaxed! This was my first time leaving Zoey with someone, even though Zoey is 6 years old, and I will definitely be using Jennifer again whenever I need to go away! I 100% recommend Jennifer! Her reviews don't lie!

Jennifer is AMAZING! She sent me updates/pictures/videos when I was on my trip. She is such a caring a sweet soul, and Toby absolutely loved her and her family. I can not describe how happy I am to have found her. Now I won't have to worry about Toby when I go on trips, because I know he is in great hands with Jennifer. ❤️

Jennifer takes excellent care of Cubby (our Golden Retriever), as always. Highly recommended and I'm sure we will hire her again to watch Cubby when we travel.
This was our first time leaving our 7-month old, pride and joy, first child, everything revolves around, best friend behind with a stranger...nervous doesn't even come close to describe my wife and I. All of that was put to rest after I did the meet and great with Jennifer. She takes her dog vacay work very seriously and professionally. She has a great schedule with the dogs she watches, is very attentive to their needs and keeps the owners well informed of how things are going with texts, pictures and videos. She really cares for the dogs and it shows. We could not have been happier to leave our guy with her and will absolutely do so again in the future without any hesitation. Thank you Jennifer!

Mojito had a great Presidents' Day vacay with Jennifer -- his fifth visit with her, I think. We particularly appreciated the Valentine's Collage from him! We think he likes being with Jennifer more than being at home, but hope that's mostly because at her place, he gets to sleep on the bed. We're not sure, though. It could be that he gets so much attention from her too! Jennifer is a life-saver when we need to go out of town.
Read More...
Jennifer was GREAT with Mojito, as always!
Jennifer came to the rescue last minute for us. She's so reliable, and our dog loves her.
Jennifer was extremely responsive upon my initial request, and she gave my Ruby a very fun and exhausting day. She sent photos and videos, and she was easy to stay in contact with. Jennifer clearly loves dogs, and she really knows how to treat a dog right! Thank you!!
Read More...
I am so happy to have found Jennifer to watch my precious baby Miles. She was so awesome!! I could not be happier with her services. I look forward to having him watched by Jennifer in the very near future!!
I could not be more pleased and happy with the care that Jennifer gave my baby while I was away! It is always a challenge to find somewhere that my dog feels at home when I'm gone for a few days. It was such a relief to come home to such a happy girl. Jennifer is exceptional with dogs, and we are so grateful.

Thanks Jennifer!!!

This was the first time I had left Sadie for a LONG time. I'm certain I had more nervous about this than Sadie. But Jennifer was great! She is so cheerful and caring. She assured me Sadie will have lots of fun. Jennifer sent me updates with pictures everyday. When I got back I picked up a very happy dog! Sadie was like a kid coming home from a great summer camp experience - except I didn't have the dirt and laundry.

Christmas Holidays are such a busy time and Jennifer was able to look after Topanga and make sure she had lots of holiday love. In every picture Topanga was either smiling, walking , playing or sleeping peacefully in a comfy spot :)
There are not enough AMAZING things I can say about Jennifer! She is so awesome with "our little girl" and our crazy schedules. Thanks Jennifer
As usual Jen took excellent care of Goldie and when her daily pictures couldn't reach me in Cuba, she sent them to my daughter. :) :)
Jennifer is just divine. Not only was she able to accept my very last minute request, she was super flexible and friendly and my dogs had the best time with her. She kept us up to date with photos and texts and was just the loveliest person.

I would use her every time!
Read More...
Jennifer is awesome. She sent us updates of our dog throughout the day and our pup had a blast. She also was extremely accomodating when I had to work late and had no problem keeping my pup over night. Highly recommend her!
Jennifer is the best! Doug always has the best time when he is there. We feel better about having to leave him with someone, knowing he is in such good hands!
Jennifer is wonderful! This was our pup's first time away from home and she was so comfortable at Jennifer's. The daily updates, photos, and videos put me at ease as well. We have already re-booked!
Jennifer was absolutely amazing. She is friendly, kind, flexible, and very attentive. Everything about the meeting, booking, drop-off, and pick-up was handled in a friendly but professional manner. She really made me feel comfortable leaving my beloved Stella behind as we traveled east for an extended trip - throughout the two weeks, Jennifer regularly send me pictures of our pup relaxing, walking, and playing with her and the other dogs in the house. Really put me at ease! I would hire Jennifer again without any hesitation!!

Jennifer was great about watching our dog on a somewhat short notice trip. Knowing Jennifer was watching our dog allowed us to relax and enjoy the evening.
Jennifer took great care of our dog over Christmas, including a great Christmas photo of our dog having fun. Jennifer always takes the time to keep us updated while we're away.
Gus had a wonderful time with Jennifer and her family over the holidays! He got all the human snuggles and doggy playtime and cozy naps a dog could possibly want. Jennifer always sends us frequent pictures and videos to keep us from missing him too much.
Read More...
My dog stayed with Jen for 12 nights. That's a long time! We missed him tons, but we knew he was having a blast with Jen and the other dogs she was taking care of. She updated us with great videos and pictures every day. She worked her magic with the dogs - giving them a loving, fun and safe home. My dog seems to be missing his time there now that he's home. It was soooo much fun for him! He came back an even better dog! Jen is simply wonderful. I know Oscar will be delighted when he goes back.
Read More...
Emma stayed with Jen for over a week while my family and I were out of state, and we could not be more pleased with the experience! Emma had an absolute blast, and Jen kept us updated daily on all of their activities like walks, play time, and good old fashioned pup snuggles. It was such a good feeling knowing that our doggy was in such great hands. We can't wait for our next trip so Emma can get some more QT with Jen! Thanks Jen!! xo

Our experience with Jennifer was absolutely wonderful !!! She truly loves each and every dog she watches. She also knows how to handle them. She was in total control. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.
Bandit had a great stay!
Jen is a breath of fresh air. She is delightful with the doggies she takes care of. The videos she sent with all the doggies were adorable - She's like a wonderful pre-school teacher, only with dogs instead of children. They follow her and are full of wags for her. She loves what she does and creates a loving and safe environment for her "students." I'm about to leave mine with her for 12 days. I have no doubt that he will be in great hands. I looked high and low to find someone I could trust and feel so good about and I'm so grateful I did!! Thank you Ms. Jen for the amazing job you do and the loving and fun environment you create.

Gus had a wonderful stay over Thanksgiving. He had fun with the other dogs and got lots and lots of human snuggles. We are thankful we have somewhere so great to send him when we are away!
Moose had such a wonderful time with Jennifer . . . I not sure she missed home. She absolutely loved her vacay. Thx Jenn ps we received many photos & videos of Moose to let us know she was happy & making new doggie friends.
Jennifer did a great job, again, with our dog! Our dog has a little bit of an attitude, but Jennifer knows how to keep her in check and having fun with other dogs.
My silkie terrier Xena loves Jennifer! And so do I because she keeps my dog so happy, and sends me pictures of her on a regular basis so I can see what doggie pals Xena's playing with and what comfy couch she's napping on. I miss my dog when I'm away, but I never worry about her when she's with Jennifer. Jen's the best!
Read More...
I had a change in plans and Jennifer was able to take Sadie for me. Safie loves Jennifer and her family. She slso likes all of the other dogs that come to visit. I'm so glad that I found such a great place to leave my Sadie.
This past Thanksgiving week was my second time I left Puppo with Jennifer for over a week. The entire experience was as great as the first stay. Jennifer is very flexible with the drop off and pick up times and sent photos and videos a few times a day! Without question, I will definitely use Jennifer for my next trip.

Jennifer is wonderful. She takes great care of our furry baby while we're away. We leave her knowing that she's in great hands! Peace of mind.
Jennifer is the best!!! So loving and caring
Jennifer is the perfect host. Great communication and very attentive to the dogs in her care. We will use her in the future without hesitation.
Jennifer did a great job, as always, with our dog.
Jennifer was wonderful. She took great care of our little one and went above and beyond when she borrowed a doggy sweater to keep our baby warm during a cold front. We will absolutely be asking Jennifer to sit for us again.
We had a stress free trip knowing Jennifer was watching our boy Brutus!
Another perfect experience with jennifer. My dogs love seeing her and she always helps me out when I have to leave town.
Last minute reservation and as always, Jennifer totally saved us. We are so thankful to have found her! Woof!
Another amazing stay, Jennifer is the best! Woof!
Jennifer is fantastic. I got pictures of my little girl throughout her staycay. I'll definitely be using her services again soon!
Our experience with Jennifer pet sitting for our 7 year old American Staffordshire Terrier was excellent! She sent me photos and updates every day (sometimes twice or three times a day) to let me know how he was doing. He is a large dog (90+ lbs) and she walked him with ease. She is very skilled at reading a dog's behavioral cues and caring for them if they have feeding issues. Overall this was a great experience and we will book with Jennifer again.
Read More...
This is the second time that Jennifer has watched my dog and I absolutely trust no one else! She is so loving and even though it had been a whole year since Annie had seen Jennifer she still remembered her when she came over and was so happy to see Jennifer, jumping and licking her face. This time Jennifer came over to my house twice a day for two days to let my dog out for a walk and feed her. She sent me numerous pictures each day which always is so exciting to receive especially when away from your children! I will definitely be using Jennifer again in the future as she now feels like a permanent part of our family!!!!
Read More...
Jennifer is very conscientious and organized, in addition to giving her guests lots of attention and love.
I love that Jennifer cares for my dog as though he were her own. I love that the dogs she watches are given so much love and literally live with her and her son. Jennifer sends text pictures several times a day while I'm on my trip. She gives him any meds such as ear drops as specified. You will always want Jen to watch your pet. She is the best kept secret in Dog watchers.

This was my frenchie's third vacay with Jenn, and she is absolutely amazing! I know Peppi has a great time playing and walking because of how tired she is when she comes home hehe. Jenn sends a ton of photos and videos which is so great. I was really nervous the first time i left my dog (she has bad separation anxiety), but since then I always feel comfortable knowing Peppi will be well taken care of.
Read More...
We absolutely love Jen. This is the second time we have used her and feel SO comfortable with our dog there when we are out of town. She even sends pictures so we know he is having a good time! We highly recommend her.
Jennifer was amazing ! I was especially impressed by her emphasis of teamwork between the dogs she was watching - had them always playing and walking together. Milo really loved all the other pups and definitely will be returning to stay with Jennifer. Highly recommended and not just for the valley folks, but for all!

Ps she takes great photos and videos!!
Read More...
Wonderful care. She sent daily updates. It was clear that she gives our pup the same attention we would at home. We will work with her again. :)
Jennifer is always amazing when we leave Belle with her. I would recommend her to everyone!!!
Jennifer is great! She is so sweet with "our little girl" and we are so thankful to have found her on Dog Vacay :)
Let me just start by saying I am a very involved , particular, educated mom. I do my homework and research before I choose anyone to take care of my little girl . Jennifer is wonderful! She understands dogs & behavior. I felt comfortable at all times knowing that my little girl was being taken care of. Jennifer gave me text and picture updates throughout each day.

In addition, Jennifer is extremely flexible with her schedule.
I highly recommend her services to all!
Read More...
Jen was amazing I was afraid my pup wouldn't want to come back home after his stay. She kept me updated of ljs progress in the group with lots of pics. Amazing!
Kane and I had a great experience with Jennifer while I was away for work. Jennifer has a very sweet and caring demeanor and a nice home that I felt comfortable leaving my dog in. I also appreciated her flexibility in pick-up and drop-off times which made scheduling a breeze. Upon picking Kane up at the end of my trip I could tell them two of them had bonded and that he was happy dog. Not much more you could ask for from a sitter! I highly recommend her.
Read More...
Sadie had so much fun in her daycare visit with Jennifer. She slept on the couch (like home) next to a person. She went on lots of walks. She played with other dogs and people. I picked up a happy and tired dog! So, I immediately went home and reserved a spot for Sadie with Jennifer for my next out of town trip.

Jennifer has a great love for the dogs and it shows!
Read More...
We literally can not say enough AMAZING things about Jennifer. Her love for our dog is evident by all the cute photos and videos that she sends on a DAILY basis. We are so grateful that we found her on Dog Vacay!!!
You can't do better than Jennifer. To her doggy guests she's warm, attentive and professional. For us humans she's easy to contact and happy to update you on how your dogs are doing while you're away.

Jennifer will definitely be our first choice for boarding our dogs in the future.
Read More...
Our dog had fun, as she always does. Jennifer kept us updated as was really great about accommodating our schedule.
Jennifer is wonderful! She sent updates throughout the day along with pics. I knew my little girl was in great hands!
Jen is amazing! Our Frenchie Gus had the time of his life staying with her for a week in August-September 2015. I was very nervous about leaving my baby during our vacation, but Jen was so reassuring and warm and upbeat. She sent lots of cute pics and videos during Gus' stay which really helped to show me he was in great spirits and being well cared for. He had an awesome time playing with the other pups Jen was watching throughout the week, and he certainly got the royal treatment sleeping on the couch and in her bed. He even seems to be better behaved (e.g. listening better) since we picked him up. We will definitely be sending Gus to Camp Jen again!
Read More...
Jennifer takes great care of our dog. She always sends great picture updates so we know our dog is having just add much fun on a Jennifer vacation add we are on ours.
Jennifer is our number one Dogvacay person in our area. We have booked our Silkie Terrier Xena with her multiple times and we always pick up a calm, happy little Warrior Princess at the end of her stays. Jennifer really knows her dogs and is responsive to different doggie personalities. I was particularly touched this last time when I observed her special loving care of a rescue dog that had suffered abuse. Jennifer is knowledgeable, kind, compassionate and firm--the best!

Another GREAT stay with Jennifer! We missed our little girl during our trip, but Jennifer made it easier with lots of pictures of Topanga having fun with her friends :)
Very happy having Jennifer taking care of Shayna Used her years ago and lost contact, but will always use her again.
Another great stay for Murray with Jennifer. He had a great time and came back tuckered out and happy. Thanks again!
This was the first time using DogVacay and could not have asked for a better host and experience. Jennifer was excellent! I will definitely be going back for future trips.
Peppi had a wonderful second vaca with Jen! Jen is super thoughtful and sends videos and pics EVERY DAY which made me feel so much better about leaving my pup (who has separation anxiety) for 10 days! She is also very attentive and responsive, and both Peppi and I are glad we found her!

Another wonderful stay with Jennifer! Oakley had so much fun on his mini vacation. We couldn't be happier to have found such a caring person to watch our pup while we are away, I would HIGHLY recommend Jennifer to anyone!
Great reservation process
Yet another great stay with Jennifer! Loved all the videos and pictures :)
Once again, Jennifer came through wonderfully. Murray had a great time as always. Great location and a very loving environment -- always our first choice. Thanks again!
As usual, Goldie had a pawsome time with Jennifer.
She feels so comfortable with her and in her home. I love the pictures that I get seeing such a happy dog. And when Goldie comes home, she is clean, happy, healthy and well behaved! I also am very happy knowing Goldie is well taken care of, which makes my time away from her so much better.

This is our third time with Jennifer D. She is the dog whisperer! Xena, who is a bit high-strung, is always calm when I pick her up and always glad to see Jennifer when she returns. Jennifer sends pix throughout the day, which show what the doggies are up to. I also appreciate how Jennifer gets to know the personalities of the dogs she cares for and how they best will function within the group. I never worry when Xena is with Jennifer. She has my full confidence.

A-MAZING! Once again, Topanga was SUPER excited to hang out with Jennifer and pretty much ran up to her door to see her when I dropped her off for a few days. It makes such a difference, knowing that she is happy while we are away :)
Not much to say other than she is the BEST out there. Our girl had such an amazing time!
Jenifer you are the best !!!
We love Jennifer! Buckets is a senior dog we adopted from the shelter, he was abandoned and has issues with abandonment, but Jennifer is AWESOME and this was Bucket's second time staying with her. It was easier this time for him, he remembered the environment and socialized well with the other dogs. Jennifer is very warm and welcoming and Bucket's will always stay with her when I am out of town.

Thanks Miss Jenn.!

I hesitate to leave Jennifer a feedback because I know she is popular and the more reviews she gets the harder it is to book her! In a bind I had to have Jennifer take care of my dog. She was really great about it and took really good care of him. She sent pictures often and he looked like he was having so much fun all the time. I get a lot of anxiety leaving him with anyone but when I got back I had to have a talk with my dog and tell him he can't love anyone more than me! I almost think he had too much fun. I would not hesitate to ask her to watch my dog again. Thanks!

This is the second time for Xena with Jennifer. I wrote a rave after the first stay which was confirmed when I dropped Xena off for the second time and she happily ran to Jennifer, wagging her tail and leaping unhesitatingly into Jennifer's waiting arms. Let me be clear, Xena is a mama's girl who usually has a fair amount of separation anxiety. But not with Jennifer. If Xena has no anxiety, then I don't have to have any either! Thank you, Jennifer!
Read More...
Another great trip for us because we always know our beloved boy Buddy will be so well taken care of. Jennifer and her son, jake, are terrific! Jennifer sends photos and videos and is always near her phone. One example of Jennifer's commitment: We dropped buddy off and within an hr, he destroyed his favorite toy. Jennifer went out immediately and replaced it. Amazing. We can now travel guilt free. Thank you Jennifer and jake!

Jennifer is AMAZING! This was our first time using Dog Vacay and we were so lucky to find Jennifer- we have an older boxer with special needs and she was SO compassionate and sweet with him. She sent us daily pics and made sure to let us know he was doing great. I felt SO comfortable leaving town knowing he was in her hands. We will DEFINITELY use her again!
Read More...
Jennifer was great! This was my dog's first experience with a dog vacay stay and she had a very good time. Jennifer sent photos and texts every day to let me know how Xena was doing and even a video of her playing with another pup. Xena seemed really at home and was very calm when picked up. Jennifer is now my go-to person whenever Xena needs a vacay in the Sherman Oaks area.

Jennifer took such great care of our dog and sent lots of great updates. After watching our dog a few times now, our dog is always excited when she sees Jennifer's front gate and never wants to leave.
This is the 4th time that my Goldie has stayed with Jennifer. And as usual has had a spectacular time with her. She always looks happy in the daily pictures and she is clean, healthy, and in good spirits when I pick her up. I now do not worry when I have to leave her somewhere when I go away.
Read More...
Jennifer was amazing, she really cared for Buckets and was patient with him while he waed up to the surroundings. Buckets is a senior rescue from the shelter and has anxiety about abandonment and we explained it to Jennifer and she was so gentle and kind to him. We received daily photos and videos of him with the other dogs, the socializing was wonderful and much needed for him because he is so shy. We've already scheduled another vacation and have reserved Jennifer for that time. Highly recommend Jennifer .

Our third time boarding Simba (maltese, 9 yrs) with Jennifer. First long-term stay. My wife and I always have a little anxiety about leaving Simba for a long time because he's very attached (and we're attached as well!), but we felt completely safe with Jennifer. She was extremely attentive and sent regular updates. Thank you!
Read More...
Very Happy with her, As usual I will use If she is available. this was a last minute reservation as she was to start on Sun 7th to the 10th
I feel that I hit the jack pot when I found Jennifer D. She is consistent, always cheerful, and very dependable. You can rest assure that your pooch is having a good time while you are away.
Jennifer was a wonderful host for Ranger!!! We could really tell that Ranger had a fun time and got plenty of attention during his stay!

Jennifer did a phenomenal job of making sure we were comfortable with every part of Ranger's stay. She sent photos and videos throughout his stay! These were fun to see while we were away. Jennifer was also extremely accommodating! Jennifer was flexible while dropping off and picking up.

At the end of the day, I would recommend Jennifer to ANYONE who needs a place for their dog!! We will definitely be using Jennifer again when Ranger needs a place to stay while we are out!
Read More...
Our dog had a great time; she didn't want to leave. It was great getting pictures and video to keep us updated.
My husband and I could not recommend Jennifer more highly. She's provides such a warm, safe, and fun environment for our pup when we are away. We've left our lil guy with her countless times now- he's always so happy to see her and her son. She sends tons of videos and photos so that we can see what a wonderful time he's having.
The most recent time that we left our pup with Jennifer, we had to extend our trip by a few days- and she was so accommodating! She made us feel at ease, reassuring us that he'd get lots of cuddles and play time until we returned.
Read More...
Jennifer was great! She was extremely open and informative at our meet & greet, and both me and my dog knew immediately she was the right person for my frenchie to spend a mini-vaca with. Jennifer sent pictures and videos every single day which helped in knowing that my dog was being well taken care of while i was gone. She walks the dogs several times per day and makes sure they all get along well. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for somewhere to board and definitely intend on using her services again.

Once again both Goldie and I both had wonderful vacations - hers in a loving and caring home, cozy atmosphere, good playtime and care. And mine - away, care free and total relaxation, enjoying my vacation and knowing that Goldie is in excellent hands.

Goldie will be Jennifer again at the end of May and I am looking forward to another wonderful experience for her and for me!

I had to find a place to board Simba (9, maltese) at the last minute, and I'm very glad that I found Jennifer. She was great with Simba and sent regular picture updates. I had to change the drop/pick-up schedule several times because of my unpredictable schedule, and Jennifer was very accommodating. Great experience overall. Thank you, Jennifer!
Read More...
Jennifer is always the best! She is always responsive and provides regular updates on how the pups are doing! She is also very flexible and is a joy to work with. She obviously loves the dogs and loves what she is doing!
Amazing service! Jennifer kept me updated the whole way through and did an excellent job in taking care of our Mia (she is super needy and had to be extra babied during her 5 day stay). I definitely recommend her for those needing a sitter.
We have nothing but great things to say about Jennifer -- so convenient, great location and Murray had a blast hanging out with Halo. We will definitely be requesting her again and cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you!
Jeter had another great vacation with Jennifer! I get to now leave him with someone I feel comfortable with, and to top it off she loves sending me pictures of him having a good time! It makes things a lot less stressful! I never worry about him when he's with her.
Read More...
Jennifer is FANTASTIC! I didn't even know about DogVacay, so what a great surprise to have such a wonderful experience. I had a last minute request and Jennifer responded immediately and couldn't have been more professional or reassuring, as boarding my dog was a new experience for me. I met her the day before my dog's stay (which was comforting for both me and my dog). What a lovely person Jennifer is...not only does she know a whole lot about dog behavior, she just has the most charming and fun personality...my dog immediately was comfortable in her super clean (!) home, and I felt super comfortable leaving him with Jennifer. She even dealt with my dog waking her up at 1:30am for a bathroom walk! Incredible! I was so delighted to receive several pictures and videos of my dog that Jennifer texted me and it looked like my dog was having a super fun time...overall, a great experience...I will be using Jennifer whenever I need my pet taken care of when I am out of town...
Read More...
Jennifer is the BEST!!! There is no one better in the LA area, or anywhere for that matter. She LOVES animals and our furry Boy loves going to her home.
We could not have more nice words to say about Jennifer! Our dog Oakley always has such a wonderful time with her. It's so nice to have a place for him to go when we are away that he is not only safe, but he has a blast! I highly recommend using Jennifer for a DogVacay!
Read More...
I never write reviews, but Jennifer was so amazing with Busia that I have to take some time to say how wonderful she is and how thankful I am to her for taking such a wonderful care of my baby. Jennifer sent me updates with pictures about Busia several times a day so I always new how she's doing. In addition anytime I would call, Jennifer always picked up the phone and took the time to tell me about Busia.
Jennifer's home is a home away from home for Busia and piece of mind for me.
Read More...
Belle had an amazing time on her first trip with Jennifer. Jennifer has a special way with animals and so does her husband... I think Belle has new boy friend haha. I would recommend using Jennifer in an instant.
Jennifer was absolutely wonderful with Chi! She texted frequently with pictures and how Chi was doing; and when you leave your "baby" with someone it's always comforting to get those updates! Thank you so much Jennifer (and fam!), Chi will definitely want to come back to your loving home!
Read More...
Jennifer is the BEST!! Topanga is always excited to see her and we love all the videos and pics that she sends :) I would recommend Jennifer in a heartbeat. Thank you!! Woof!!
Jennifer is the most AMAZING Fur Child sitter EVER!!! We have driven 2 hours just to use her. Now we are back on her side of town and are super excited. Our dog Talent has so much fun, he almost does not even want to come home. If you want the BEST!!!! Use Jennifer!!
Read More...
Jennifer is the best! Our dog loves staying with her and her son! He's stayed with her many times, the last visit he stayed for an entire week while my husband and I were out of town. She sent us tons of photos and videos of him playing and snoozing and getting cuddles. Couldn't be happier to know Jennifer- we know our dog is safe and havng tons of fun every time he visits her.
Read More...
As usual, Goldie had a wonderful overnight stay with her friend Jennifer. I've used Jennifer several times now and Goldie feels like it's her second home. She is so comfortable there and is given lots of love.
Jennifer is an amazing host! Our little guy Walter is a puppy still so he comes with all the puppy challenges but Jennifer was great! We also had a flub in our schedule which was entirely our fault resulting in Walter having to stay longer than expected. Jennifer was extremely professional and accommodating and made sure everything worked out despite the issues on our end. We truly cannot thank her enough for making our daycation worry free. This was the first time Walter spent a whole day without us and the pictures and videos we received put us at ease knowing he was in such good hands. When he gets a bit older Jennifer will be the first person we call when we need daycare or a dog walker. Thank you Jennifer!!
Read More...
Ms. Jen is the best! It's such a relief to know he's in good hands while I am away! Jen sends lot of pictures, which I absolutely love. We are grateful to have found her!
Jennifer is amazing. The amount of time and attention she gave Deen over this weekend was a fresh breath of relief. I got regular updates on his eating, playing and sleeping. I would recommend her for sure.
Our dog is is always excited to visit Jennifer. And err always appreciate getting photos and videos of our dog having a great time. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone.
Quite simply Jennifer is the best! Topanaga is so excited to see her that she runs to the door when we are dropping her off. Clearly she has lots of fun and receives much love when she is in Jennifer's care which puts both my husband and I at ease when we are away for work. THANK YOU :) Woof!
Read More...
We hired Jennifer to walk our dog while we were on vacation, and she was fantastic! Reliable, communicative, trustworthy, flexible....can't say enough good about her!
Our pup, Alvy, is always so excited to see Jennifer! He's stayed with her at least 5 times in the past year. She truly is the best! My husband and I feel so lucky to have found someone that we trust and that Alvy absolutely loves!
I am the luckiest dog owner. Jennifer has once again taken such great care of my sweet girl. She sent great photos, videos and updates throughout the stay. She even went out to replenish our supply of dog food, making sure to get the same brand and type that we use. Her boundless enthusiasm for dogs is so evident, and she obviously loves all of the dogs in her care. I can't recommend her highly enough.
Read More...
Goldie had a wonderful week with Jennifer and I had peace of mind during my wonderful week away. Jennifer sent me pictures and a message every day! Will be using her again and again.
This is the first time I have ever used a website to find someone to watch my dog, but I am so glad I did. Now I have someone I feel comfortable with to leave Jeter with. Jennifer is awesome and I know that Jeter loved her too!
Another fun time spent with jennifer, her son, and Jennifer's other doggie guests. Buddy comes home happy and tired from all the walks, play, and stimulation. Jennifer has made our lives so much easier now that we have found her. Traveling, which was once so difficult, has now become fun. We love the daily videos and photos of buddy. Thank you jennifer. We will see u next month.

I am always nervous to leave my pup, but Jennifer made it easy for me. Teddy just loved her! I received a ton of photos so I knew he was in good hands. Thank you for taking such good care of my baby!
Jennifer took great care of our dog and sent lots of photos and videos to let us know how she was doing.
what else can I say :) we've been utilizing Jens services since Duchess was a baby and couldn't be happier. As I always say, hubby and I trust Jen 100% She is just AMAZING and loves our dog like her own. thank you:)

Ps. Sorry for the late review :) xoxo

I was very pleased with this experience. Goldie seemed to have a great time and Jennifer sent pictures every day. When I picked Goldie up she was very clean and very tired. I am looking forward to Goldie's next stay with Jennifer.
Jennifer was awesome! Our little 10-month old monster puggle puppy can be a handful at times and Jennifer even taught him a new technique which we will be using at home now. He had a great stay and Jennifer sent over lots of photos, which we loved! Thank you Jennifer!
Read More...
Another great stay with Jennifer!! My husband and I travel frequently for work so, as much as we miss our sweet Topanga, we always know that she will receive the best care with Jennifer. We receive daily pictures, texts and videos, always showing Topanga having a great time :) THANK YOU!!

Another fantastic stay with Jennifer and her son, who is the perfect tug toy puller for my pit, Buddy. Jennifer has taken the dread out of leaving my "boy" when we go away. We know he will be taken good care of and showered with attention. Thank you

Another great stay with Jennifer! Topanga loves staying with her! She totally gets spoiled and always has fun sting with the other "guests". Thank you!!!!
Jennifer is so awesome, she takes such great care of Halo whenever we go out of town. She sends pictures and updates and lets me know that everything is okay with my dog. I'm never worried and I know Halo is in great hands.
Wow! Saya came back to me so happy and tired there are no words. I was visitin LA last minute and needed a sitter and Jennifer took such great care of her and sent pictures to update me on all the fun they were having. I was a little worried because my pup has stitches in her ear but Jennifer gave her medicine no problem and made sure the other pups went easy on her. Four paws up and a wet nose to this great experience! Jennifer set the bar pretty high for other pet sitters now! I just wish she was in the Bay Area so I could use her more!
Read More...
Jen is the best! You will never met a more enthusiastic lover of dogs. Our girl took to get so quickly during our meet and greet (which she accepted on short notice) that there was just no question about us using her services. We are glad we followed our instinct about her. We were kept up to date via texts and photos of our very happy dog. Thanks, Jen!
Read More...
We had an emergency come up & thankfully Jennifer was available to watch our dog. She & her son are caring & loving to our dog...and we can always count on some adorable & fun pics while we're away from our furry friend.....thank you Jen!
Jennifer is such a terrific person & loves our dog, Scupper! We always feel at ease when he is with her....thanks Jennifer :)
Talent Say "Two Paws up" He had a wonderful stay as usual. Thank you Jennifer. You are the ONLY person that he really enjoys staying with . Anyone who wants a super fun and loving environment for their furry family member would be crazy not to use Jennifer.

Our Duchess (mini schnauzer) LOVES/adores Jen :) She's always happy to see her and never cries whenever we drop her off. I love getting her texts videos/pics update. Very reliable, sincerely loves dogs and not once left me disappointed of entrusting her our baby. Thanks Jen and congrats again on being featured on Women Magazine :)

Jennifer is the best! I can't go anywhere without her! She sends multiple pictures and videos every day and the dogs look very happy to be with her. She takes perfect care of my doggies and our house. Communicating with her is great, very responsive, super friendly. She's perfect!

Jennifer was exceptional. She was very astute about dog personalities regarding a new environment and the stress they experience. Special diet and medication were no problem. Jennifer is someone who really cares about the pets and really enjoys what she is doing it.

Jennifer is AWESOME and AMAZING!!! Our dog is NEVER thrilled about staying with anyone UNLESS it is with Jennifer and her Son!!! We don't even live in her area any longer but are willing to drive an hour just to be sure that our dog has THE BEST caregiver in CA!
Read More...
Jennifer is the best! Topanga loves to see and we love seeing all the photos, videos and texts while we are away. Thanks Jennifer!!!
Our pup, Alvy, had another AMAZING stay with Jennifer. We pulled up to her apartment where she was waiting outside to greet us. Alvy ran over to her, leapt into her arms and showered her with kisses. Jennifer is loving, attentive and kind! Whenever we have to go out of town for a long day, or several days- we know that we can leave Alvy with someone that he loves and trusts!
Read More...
I cannot recommend Jennifer highly enough. She came to our house to meet our dogs, sent us pictures and videos of our boys throughout the weekend, and we came home to two dogs who had clearly had an anxiety-free weekend. If dog people are good people, Jennifer is among the finest.

She is prompt to respond, was very willing to work with us about scheduling, and put all of our concerns to rest quickly.
Read More...
I have left my little dog with Jennifer 4 or 5 times, and I look forward to using her wonderful services in the future. She conscientiously takes care of his every need. Always sends text pictures to me while I'm away. Leaving my dog with Jennifer gives me peace of mind knowing that all will be well and I can enjoy my vacation too.
Read More...
Jennifer is amazing. She's the first non-friend/family member we've trusted with our pups. Even though I was a little anxious at first, my concerns were immediately put to rest. We loved all the photo and video updates. It's obvious she's a natural animal lover.

We've already booked our next appointment. Can't recommend highly enough.
Read More...
Jennifer is amazing!! She is 110% dependable, professional, and caring. We never worry when we go out of town and Jennifer is watching our dogs. We know that they will receive the best of care! The photos that she sends throughout our vacation are a testament to the quality of care and service she provides! Love her!

This was the first time that we used DogVacay and couldn't have been happier. We previously would take our English Bulldog to a kennel whenever we needed to leave town or had to travel. No longer will this be the case. Jennifer was a great host and our dog was truely happy when we picked him up. We received tons of pictures and videos while we were gone to see how much fun he was having. Jennifer really made us feel that our dog was welcomed from the meet and greet and throughout his stay. Don't hesitate to use Jennifer if you are going away on a vacation or just getting out of town for a couple days. Highly recommend and so happy we found her.
Read More...
Another great stay! We've left our dog, Alvy, with Jennifer multiple times now. It's such a relief to be able to leave our baby with someone that we trust.
He's always so happy to see her, and she sends a ton of videos and photos so that we can see all of the fun they're having together!
Read More...
Another AMAZING stay with Jennifer! She is the best! TONS of photos, updates and videos. Topanga looks so happy staying with her and that makes us super happy too! Thank you Jennifer!!!
Just picked up buddy from Jennifer's after a 15 day vacation. 15 days? Have never left a dog that long before, but knew I could trust jennifer after a 2 day trail run. He is my boy, after all. We got photos everyday and sometimes a video of buddy playing with Jennifer's amazing son, jake. The only disappointing thing about the experience, was that buddy was in no hurry to leave. He looked at me and my husband, like "what do you mean I have to go home with you? I want to stay." Jennifer made my trip worry free and I highly recommend her. I look forward to booking another vacation in the future without worry. Yay! Jennifer!!!!!
Read More...
Jennifer is amazing! It was our first time using DogVacay and we feel so lucky to have found Jennifer through this site.
We were a little nervous about leaving our pup, Alvy, for an entire week. But Jennifer made us feel at ease, and even excited about all the fun he would have while we were away. We woke every morning to photos from his morning walk, and by the afternoon we'd have the cutest videos of him playing.

We have to go away for another week this month and are so relieved knowing that we can leave him with Jennifer.

Jennifer is great with my pup. I am so blessed to have someone so awesome take care of him while I'm out of town. I don't worry about him at all, I know he is in great hands! My dog Halo loves her!
Great visit, as always!!!! We don't have a second of worry when Mojito is with Jennifer.
I absolutely love Jennifer! My dogs had a great vacation staying at her house. She sent numerous pictures and videos every day. My dogs even love her dog and were sad to leave their new doggy friend. I definitely will leave my children with Jennifer again in the future. My little Chilly is a major diva and I feel 100% safe leaving him with her! Thank you!!

Jennifer is the best dog walker I have ever met. We have tried multiple dog walkers and none had the patience and persistence of Jennifer. We have an older Frenchie and a Chihuaha mix that can be quite stubborn and shy. They do not take easily to new people.
I was extremely anxious leaving them considering how poorly our past experiences have been. Jennifer was determined and through her love for dogs and optimistic approach, she won them over. It is nothing short of a miracle. I highly recommend her and trust her with my furry children.
Read More...
Jennifer was great, I had to drop Halo off an hour earlier than the time we agreed on and she was really accommodating at the last minute with that which was really helpful! Halo went right over to her and got all excited to see her, it was obvious she made an impression the first time he stayed with her. I think she might walk and play with him more than I do! I would highly recommend her, I feel totally at ease traveling now that I have someone so PAWSOME to leave my baby with.
Read More...
Great as usual! We wouldn't leave him with anyone else. Third visit is coming up next week.
Jennifer was terrific! As a neurotic "Mom", I was hesitant to use your service. I mean, what did I really know about you all. Once we met jennifer, we knew we were in great hands. She is kind, caring, and knowledgeable. Her apt. Is very large and inviting, and my dog fell in love with her 14 yr old son. We did a 2 day trial run to make sure. We have booked her again for a 15 day stay! She updated us with many photos and a video of play. Highly recommend her!!!!

Two paws up!!
We have used Jennifer twice and have loved every part of our experience. She is so caring for the dogs and really makes you feel comfortable when you are away. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a safe, fun, and exciting place to keep their dog!

I know my little dog is always well cared for and loved. Jennifer is so detail oriented and helpful in making sure your pet has their every need met. I have left my Shi -tzu Solomon with her a number of times. She texts pictures and emails of him while I'm away which always makes me smile and reassures me that he is having a good stay. I have never been disappointed. Thank you Jennifer.

Jennifer was amazing. My dog is not comfortable around everyone, but he loved her immediately! She was so great with him when I interviewed her, I knew she would take excellent care of him and she did. When I dropped him off I got a little sad and a few minutes after I drove away she sent me a pic of Halo with a "bye mom" caption, it really made me smile. Then the next day she sent video of him in her home and I could tell he was really comfortable there. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to take care of your pup!

Jennifer is arf-mazing! Simon always starts wagging his fluffy tail when we mention her name. We get pictures of Simon that look like that from a five star resort -- contentedly sleeping, hanging out on the coach, walking, cuddling, getting ayurvedic massages, pawdicures, drinking green kibble smoothies, doing doga at sunrise, and more!

Jennifer was fantastic with our dog Oakley! She was able to take him last minute, and the whole experience was just wonderful after that. We will certainly be using her again when we go out of town, and would recommend her to anyone looking for a safe, fun, and exciting place to keep their dog when they are out of town.
Read More...
Another great visit with Jennifer! Topanga was so excited to see Jennifer and Saya, and from the pictures Jennifer sent, Topanga was a very happy and busy girl all day! They went on multiple walks and the 2 dogs had lots of playtime! Topanga was so tired after her day of fun that she fell asleep as soon as we walked in the door :)

Jennifer and her family are so wonderful! Jennifer is absolutely a dog lover; she is very responsible and patient. We were constantly updated with pictures and even some videos of our dog. We are so happy he got so much caring and fun there. I would absolutely recommend for your dog to stay with her! Thank you so much Jennifer!

Jennifer was a fantastic host! We had our 10-month old puppy, Klondike, stay with her for nearly five days, and Jennifer sent us pictures and videos of our little girl multiple times a day. When we came to take her back home, Klondike seemed very sad to be leaving! We would be lucky to have Jennifer watch our pup again, and would recommend her to others 100%.

Another great day of doggy daycare by Jennifer! We had a last minute reservation and Jennifer was able to accommodate, thank you! Topanga was so happy to see Jennifer, we LOVE that! Lots of wonderful pics and videos :)
Jen was the first host I booked on Dogvacay. I have now used her multiple times and am always so incredibly glad that I did! She pays so much attention to the dogs . I get several videos and pictures throughout the day, with doggie tails wagging and happy. My dog is always happy playing with the other pooches she is sitting for, because she takes into consideration which dogs she has already booked and how they get along with others. When we have the dog in the car and she sees where she is at she literally jumps out of the car and runs to Jen as if she is her owner. It's really cute. That makes me happy to know she loves Jen and loves being at her home. Bonus is Jen lives literally across the street from the park, so no worries your dog will get the exercise they need while you are away. She is always my go to dog sitter, I am so glad I found Jen because we used to leave her at dog boarding places and we never knew what was going on once we left, but with Jen she is so much happier and I like the one on one attention and corespondence I get with Jen. She is amazing with the dogs and amazing with people. She is a wonderful, happy, positive woman, and we are so lucky to have found her!!!

Another great stay with Jennifer! Topanga had a great time with Jennifer and we enjoyed receiving lots of pictures and videos during her day at doggy daycare :)
Jennifer took great care of my dog and sent us constant updates and videos. She and her roommate took my pup on numerous walks and hikes. I highly recommend her!
As always Jennifer did a great job with the dogs. She is overall just a great person and extremely caring. She will always be our go to person.
Jennifer is always the best! She is our regular dogsitter and we couldn't be happier with her. She stays at our house with our 3 dogs and takes perfect care of the house and dogs. Our dogs mean everything to us and we feel completely at ease leaving Jennifer with them. She sends pictures and videos throughout the day and the dogs always look happy, they really love Jennifer!

It was Cubby's second stay with Jennifer and she takes great care of Cubby. She gets all the walks she wants, personal care and we get lots of photos texted to us that I can show the kids.

Cubby will be back again with Jennifer in July and is looking forward to it.

Jennifer is PAWSOME!! This was our first time using dogvacay and I am so happy that we found her :) Our meet n' greet was so great that Topanga was super excited to go back and hang out with Jennifer. Of course I was sad to not see "our little girl" for a few days, I knew that she was in good hands because just after we dropped her off, they went for a walk and I saw her look up at Jennifer with a big smile :) We received lots of pictures and videos during Topanga's stay, showing her playing with other dogs, getting belly rubs and just hanging out. We will be boarding with Jennifer again soon and I know that Topanga will be excited for another sleepover :)

Jennifer is incredible. I had to leave my cattle dog with her for almost a week. She was attentive, kind, and sent updates multiple times a day. What a blessing to know your dog is being well cared for when you have to travel. Can't say enough good things about Jennifer. She's my go-to dog sitter from now on!

Jennifer is fantastic! She treats our dogs like her own and goes out of her way to ensure their happiness and ours. She keeps in touch while we are away, even if for only a day, with pictures and videos.
Like a summer camp for dogs! When you see pictures of your best friend sleeping, playing with other dogs, cuddling with Jennifer, or lounging on the couch, you know he is in good hands.
In my book Jennifer is # 1. She is so positive and consistent. She is conscientious and caring of your pet. I can travel without worry because I know my little dog is in such good hands. When I come to pick him up, he is always happy and content. What more could you ask for. Thank you Jennifer

Jennifer was the perfect care-taker for Mo. The many photos and videos of him sleeping peacefully, walking on a leash and cuddling with her and her son constantly reassured us he was having as great a vacation as we were. She will be our first call next time we plan a vacation!

Jennifer was amazing! We did not have to worry at all knowing that our dogs were in their own home and their own back yard with Jennifer there to play with them and send pictures and videos while we were away. It was such a great feeling knowing the dogs were having fun and being well taken care!! We will definitely use Jennifer again!!

GREATEST DOG SITTER EVER! I needed to board my Coton de Tulear, Andy, while I attended my son's wedding weekend. I had just moved and did not have my usual boarder close by. I found Jen on DogVacay and after contacting her, just had a feeling that she was the right person to take care of my little guy. In fact, she lives only a few blocks from where I was staying. I cannot say enough great things about the care Andy received from Jen. She has a natural understanding of dogs and immediately took him for a walk around the area to get him accustomed to her. We then went to her apartment and she was so relaxed while he ran around a few minutes to get use to her place. I had a wonderful weekend and didn't worry about Andy for one moment! Jen emailed me tons of pictures and videos the whole weekend, such as: him sitting by her while she was on her computer, taking walks in the park (lots of these!), playing with the other dog she was boarding, photo of Andy with her and her husband, several of Andy just hanging out in her apartment, and a few of him crashing on her couch. When I picked Andy up, he was happy to see me but I could also tell he was attached to Jen. I would not hesitate recommending Jen to anyone! In fact, my son will be contacting her to take care of his dog for a weekend when he will be gone. Thank you, Jen, for taking care of our furry family members with such love and kindness.

I am so happy I found Jennifer to watch my dogs for a few days. She is awesome, patient and completely dedicated to being an amazing host. The pics, videos and updates throughout the day made me feel so at ease so I truly had a relaxing vacation without ever worrying about my babies. Her energy is amazing and I would feel more than comfortable either having her host in her home or in mine and I highly recommend her!! Thank you Jennifer and the folks at Dog Vacay!!!

This is the third time I have used Jennifer to dog sit my dog Estella. Every time I need a sitter for her, I look up Jen first. She is my absolute first choice!!! I have used one other sitter on this website and it just did not compare to the service I received with Jen. She is very friendly, and my dog literally jumps out of the car and run's straight to her. While we are gone, Jen sends us lots of texts of Estella and what she is doing. She also sends cute video's and custom pictures too. My kids get so excited when a new text of the dog comes through. Pick up and drop off's are a breeze. She takes the dog for a walk as soon as we drop her off. Estella loves that. Picking up is great too, because my dog is literally so calm and tired and relaxed when she is in the car on the way home. I feel so lucky to have found such a great dog sitter, before dogvacay it was not so easy to leave town on short notice, but this has made it really easy for us, and we are so grateful to have found Jen the first time!!! She gets booked up fast so if you have your dates, make sure to book her!!!

She did a great job! Got a lot of pictures and our dog was very happy.
Jennifer is amazing!!! We went for an extended vacation, 9 days is extremely long for me to be away from my dogs. Not once did I worry! I was actually able to enjoy my vacation because I knew Jennifer was taking care of them. She is so wonderful and the dogs just love her!

Thank you so much for everything! You are amazing and Pawesome!

Jennifer was great! Very helpful, flexible, and reliable. Sent lots of great pics from her time with our dog Sophia. She even took out our recycling on her way out, which was very nice of her! We are definitely using her again.
Jennifer is amazing she really takes care of your animal like its one of her own. I loved the updates throughout the day. She has taken great care of my dog Branson with multiple walks, and playtime.
I was surprised on how personable she is with taking care of Branson.
I will use Jennifer again as she has been great to work with. I think Branson agrees as well.

Warmest Regards,
Julie Ann

Thanks, Jennifer!

Once again, her home and family were the perfect place for Jenson - this time while we were away for 12 days over Christmas and New Years. On our way back to Los Angeles, our flight was delayed and Jennifer was extremely accommodating and easy about the whole thing. Jenson loved his stay, as witness to the pictures and videos Jennifer sends daily. Between our peace of mind and Jenson having fun, we highly recommend Jennifer and her family for overnight stays.

This is the third time Jennifer has stayed in our home with our three dogs and we couldn't be happier with her. She takes perfect care of our house and dogs, the dogs seem very happy in all the pictures she sends, she responds in a second every time I write her a text or an e-mail... she is simply the best!

Once again! Fantastic care! This was a last minute reservation that you really helped us out with! You are amazing!
Jennifer is amazing! We felt totally at ease knowing she would be taking care of our dogs. With the multiple pictures and videos sent, we knew that they were in good hands! Thank you so much for the fantastic care and love you give our dogs!
This is our 2nd time using Jennifer & we love her!! We were so lucky to find such a caring person to take care of our little guy. We feel our dog is safe & loved being with her.....such a comfort to us. Thank you Jennifer!!!
Jennifer was awesome!!! My husband and I couldn't have felt anymore comfortable being in Palm Springs for the weekend while our puppy was closer to home. She sent us pictures throughout the weekend and made my kids and us so happy to see that Duke was just as happy as we were. I will most definately go back to her if we need her again. Jennifer you are awesome and can't thank you enough.

This is the second time Jennifer has stayed at our house with our dogs and the second 5 star review of many more to come. Not only is Jennifer a great dog sitter, but she's also a great person. Takes absolutely perfect care of our three dogs and our house. We love Jennifer, she's the best!

So happy to have found such a great sitter! Bailey absolutely loves Jen! I was so nervous to be leaving my 12 week old pup but Jeniffer made sure he was well taken care of! I recommend her 100% she's the best!
Jennifer was terrific she' sent lots of pictures and Shayna looked happy Jennfer said she was no trouble (I didn't expect her not be a good dog) I would love to have Jennifer dog sit all the time but because she's very busy next time I'll need to call way in advance .This is the first time with this company and I'mvery happy, hope the next sitter will be as great!

Jennifer was an awesome sitter for my anxiety-prone pup. When I visited her home to see if it would be a good match for Benito, I found her apartment to be quite large and very clean and organized.

Benito is a small shelter rescue, so has some anxiety around other dogs and is a little skittish, but he warmed to Jennifer and her family very quickly.

I got pictures throughout the day, and even a video that showed Benito have a great time.

I would absolutely use Jennifer again.

Jennifer is fantastic! She sends pictures and video updates. Our dogs are definitely well loved and well taken care of while she watches them!
Great to communicate with and my dog Bella loves her!
Absolutely great hosts, took very well take care of my dog as well as had great communication skills regarding the drop off and pickup of my dog. Dog was absolutely delighted to stay with Jennifer.

Will definitely use Jennifer more often, as she is a very caring and loving individual with dogs.

Once again I was more than happy to trust Jennifer with my little dog. She shows so much love and concern for their every need. She listened to any directions that I offered and followed through to the t. He is happy and clean when I come to pick him up and I know that even though he loves to come home he has a great stay at Jennifer's. I can't say enough good things. She is a treasure.

Jennifer is awesome! She kept me updated with cute pictures to let me know my Pug was having a great time.
Jennifer was amazing! Winston took to her pretty quickly - he had a good sense of her positive, dog-loving energy. I got picture and video updates several times a day, so I got to see how happy my boy was while in her care. She took care of the dog and the house and left it immaculate! She even gave Winston a nice brushing so he was clean and shiny too! She took him on lots of walks (more than I do!) and let him play with neighborhood friends. He had such a great time that when I came home after 5 days, he acted like I had only been gone 5 hours! He was a happy boy!

Awesome As Always with Jennifer!! She is the Best!!
Jennifer was great with our dog Coupe. From our meet and greet to the pick up and drop off, Jennifer was easy to get in touch with and accommodating of our schedule and care requests. We left Coupe with her for 10 days and each day she was diligent about sending pictures with updates on their activities and even sent some videos. It was clear from the photos even our dog was having a good vacay! When we picked him up, he was as happy as could be and I could tell he had been well cared for while we were away — perhaps even spoiled ;-). I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone and will certainly use her services again in the future!

Jennifer was a great host for our little rascal. She was very responsive and took our reservation on a short notice. We got frequent updates from her regarding our dog and she was extremely flexible with our schedules so we could drop him off and pick him back up at a convenient time. I would definitely recommend Jennifer and board our little one with her again!

Jennifer is amazing and treats Marley like family.
Jennifer was amazing!! So friendly, thorough and did lots of wonderful extras like send pictures and keep me updated without me even having to ask. I didn't think twice about leaving Abbie with her, it was clearly a great environment with real dog lovers!

We took our pup over to Jennifer's and she welcomed us outside with 2 other doggies to get everyone acquainted. Our dog is really shy so when we all went upstairs, she made sure that Kumo had his time to get to know her and her roommate, Kristina. He'd just about sniff the entire place while the other guys played in another room with her son! :) Jennifer was really patient and caring with Kumo and you can tell, she's knows and loves dogs! We even had updates with cute pictures sent to the cell phone to make sure that our pup was well-taken care of and having a good time. Kumo only spent the night but was a happy camper with Jennifer and her roommate... We highly recommend Jennifer and 'look forward to using her services again!

Jennifer was amazing! We had a meet and greet and the dogs seemed to like her right away, they were comfortable with her and they looked like they had known her for years. This was our first experience with a dog sitter and we're extremely pleased with Jennifer, will definitely call her again when we travel. She sent pictures multiple times during the day where the dogs, and her, seemed to be having a great time. She played with them, fed them and took perfect care of them. She stayed in our house and took great care of it as well, the house was even cleaner after she left than when she arrived. Jennifer was perfect and we're happy to call her now our official dog sitter. Thank you!!!!

This was Jenson's first visit with Jennifer for a long weekend. She did a fantastic job with him, and it was great to see updates and photos, assuring us that he had settled in. Sometimes his anxiety flares in new environments, but you can tell that Jennifer's a pro with dogs because he seamlessly settled in and made friends with the other boarders. When we dropped him off, she immediately took him and the other boarder for a walk - I don't think Jenson even realized we had left! I know he'll be excited to go back next time for his extended stay over the holidays. Glad to have comfort knowing Jenson has a home away from home!

Finally, I found someone who treated my pet the way I would. Jennifer texted pictures to me everyday and assured me that he was having a great time. He was well cared for and loved. I was very happy and would leave him with her again.
Jennifer was fabulous! This was the first time that my two babies were separated from me. They are rescues and have been passed around a lot so I was worried that they would feel like I abandoned them. Jennifer sent me pictures and kept me posted so I knew how they were doing everyday. Her son spent time with them as well so they got lots of attention. I was afraid to board them with a bunch of other dogs because they are small and not always that friendly with other dogs and I did not want them to stay in kennels. This was the perfect solution and the right care giver for me – five stars!

I can't thank Jennifer and her son enough for taking such wonderful care of our guy. I almost felt bad taking him home today because I sensed he had such fun and got to hang with other dogs (other boarders). I received adorable pictures of Loki daily. I think Dog Vacay truly lived up to its name thanks to Jennifer. This was a true vacation for Loki with lots of love, walks and TLC. I will absolutely use Jennifer again. I will add that she had everything nicely packed when I came to get Loki and was very conscientious about not missing any of his toys. To anyone looking for a responsible, dog loving and dog savvy person to watch their dog, I would highly recommend Jennifer D.

My dog Loki is staying with Jennifer for an extended stay in the near future and I wanted him to be familiar with her and the setting in advance. So he did a daycare stint today. Jennifer's apartment is immaculate, airy and spacious with a nice view of the park across the street. She welcomed Loki very warmly and sent me a super cute photo montage. She walked Loki right away and took him out and about with her. She and her teenage son even delivered him home. (We live super close to her.) I am so grateful to have found this comfy, loving, home away from home for our precious boy. Thank you! Highly recommended.

Volcano and Ember loved their stay with Jennifer so much! She was very accommodating to my change in schedule with regards to my pick up time being later in the day due to a flight delay. She sent me wonderful pictures of Volcano and Ember during their stay (they were always smiling!). She kept me up to date when Volcano had a potty issues and even took the time out to find and try a new method to settle his upset tummy. I know they got tons of attention and play time from Jennifer and the boys, because they've just been exhausted since I brought them home. We'll definitely board with Jennifer again!

Jennifer did a great job caring for our dog Brutus. We got lots of updates and photos while we were away. We would certainly use her again. A+!
We just left Toto with Jennifer for the first time last week and I think they had a great time! During our meet n greet, she seemed completely comfortable with him and he was with her too, which doesn't happen all the time with new people. She sent us many cute photos while we were gone and put our minds at ease.

Let me start by saying, this is the first time I have used this service. I definitely picked the most amazing host as my first choice, Jennifer. She immediately called me back and over the phone was very friendly. I felt at ease and was very confident that everything would be fine after we hung up. Drop off was a breeze, she walked Estella as soon as I handed her over. Jennifer kept me updated with pictures and texts. I seriously had no doubt my dog was in good hands while my family and I were enjoying our little getaway. When I picked up my dog, Jennifer had already walked her and fed her, so when we arrived home Estella was wiped out and took a long nap. I could tell she was happy. I had planned a trip for the following weekend and really wanted to use Jennifer again, but she had already been booked. She took time out of her day to try and help me find another sitter for my dog. That goes above and beyond in my book. I'm very grateful for meeting her and will definitely try to book her in the future.

Thank you so much Jennifer. To those who are reading trying decide who to leave your loved furry baby with, look no further. My lil coco had a great time with Jen and her family. I was constantly updates with pictures and even a video. Coco usually comes home anxious after being left with another "camp for dogs" but she was fine when we got home this time. The individual attention, park trips, snuggle time, is just what she needed. I personally liked the intimate, free, casual space Jennifer offers and the location is perfect for me. See you later this month Jennifer.

Jennifer and her family are extremely loving, and you can feel good knowing that your precious pooch is in good hands when you choose her. Highly recommended!
Jennifer was absolutely amazing, not only with my pup Zoey, but also with me! I had a last minute boarding emergency and she was incredibly accommodating.

She is very attentive and knows that pup mommies and daddies are always nervous leaving their little ones with strangers; my fears were soothed as she sent me frequent picture updates to let me know how Zo was doing.

Will definitely be using her more in the future.

Thanks Jennifer!

Second Visit was just as awesome as the first!!! Talent was so happy to see Jennifer and her son!!! If you want true peace of mind, this is the perfect host for your pet baby when you have to be away!!
Jennifer is AWESOME!!!

We got lots of pictures of our baby while we were away. Talent loves Jennifer and her son. Top notch care with no worries. We will use again and again and again. We travel often and have found the solution to keeping our puppy happy while we are away :) Thank you a million times over Jennifer.

Jennifer did a wonderful job! She sent daily updates and was very loving and patient toward our dog. Our flight back into town was delayed several times and we ended up picking him up really late and she was extremely understanding and gracious. We will use her consistently whenever we need someone who cares to watch our baby.

Jennifer and her son Jake were fantastic!! Jennifer kept me updated on my pup's stay with lots of pictures each day. Sammy loves to cuddle, so he got lots of cuddle time and attention. Jennifer is also extremely attentive and very responsible. I would absolutely recommend for your dog to stay with her and Jake!

Jennifer was a great host! Our two dogs were comfortable, played with and were able to be free in her home. She took them on frequent walks throughout the day, which they love and gave them a lot of attention. I appreciate Jennifer's warm spirit and patience. I would recommend her to anyone and will definitely use her again for future trips!

thank you Jennifer! you're amazing :)

Jennifer was a dream come true in terms of a puppy sitter. My dog is HYPER and super energetic, yet Jennifer was extremely patient with being his care giver for a few days. He also isnt completely potty trained yet so that was an added issue which she dealt with and she didnt complain ONCE! She took him out for frequent exercise, walks, and gave him ample play time and affection...he definitely seemed happy from the pics I received daily from her.
Furthermore, my puppy really took a chunk out of her kitchen cabinets, he chewed them up and I felt so horrible about it...Jennifer was so understanding and noted that with training, all these issues will be ironed out.
Lastly, I was unable to pick him up when scheduled and Jennifer accommodated me by keeping him for an extra night....while I did pay her for the extra night, it was a last minute request which she accepted despite the kitchen cabinet incident.
Jennifer - if i could give you more stars, I would....thank you so much

Jennifer and her family were excellent hosts for our 2 dogs this past weekend. She frequently sent text and picture updates so we knew what the girls were up to during their vacation. The dogs were always smiling and looked like they were enjoying their time away from us. I was afraid they weren't going to want to come back home!! Thanks, Jennifer! We will be calling you again in the future!
