About Jen

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My home is an townhouse near Lake Johnson. I take my dogs on a walk at least twice a day, and my younger dog goes running with me around the lake, I also have a fenced in back yard for the puppies to play in. We eat in the morning and at night, and my work schedule is 8:30-5:30. Other than that I'm free to play with the dogs and I have a very comfy couch and multiple dog beds and toys for the dogs to share and play with, to stay entertained while I'm at work. I don't kennel my dogs while I'm away but if you prefer to bring a kennel that's fine. I have a lot of experience with dogs since I worked at an animal clinic for 5 years and I'm experienced with administering medication if necessary. Also I believe in training dogs and behavior adjustments so you can be sure that while your dog/s are in my home they are getting along and behaving correctly while having fun and reaping the benefits of socializing with others! At this time I can only take smaller dogs as my dogs are anxious around larger dogs.

Note: At this time, I only offer sitting for dogs; I don’t currently accept cats. Also I do not accept any dogs that are not 100% potty-trained, no exceptions. Thank you!

Lilly had a great time staying with Jen. I was extremely impressed with her communication (lots of pics), her set up and taking Lilly for walks around the lake. I highly recommend!
Jen was amazing! Right from the time we communicated about having Izzy stay over at her place, to the meet-and-greet, and all through the stay itself, I felt totally confident of Jen's ability to care of my dog. Izzy seemed to be relaxed when I left her with Jen, from the photo updates Jen sent, and I have no reservations in recommending Jen or using her services as a dog-sitter again!
Jen was very quick in her response to our need for a dog sitter. Our sitter canceled at the last moment during our Christmas break. After reading Jen's ratings I contacted her to see her availability. She responded and we set up the appointment. Fifa seemed quit happy and smelled great when we picked her up six days later. Thank you Jen!
Our pup Finn had a great experience with Jen watching him. He's an active and loving pup so really enjoyed the daily walks around the lake and chillin' with Jen and the other pups. Thanks again Jen!
Jen was wonderful! In addition to having a great house near us and 2 sweet dogs, she also has a ton of experience in dog sitting. She put us at ease on our introductory visit and sent multiple pictures and videos of Ellie to prove that our dog was not only alive, but had forgotten we existed from having such a blast. I definitely recommend her and look forward to utilizing her services in the future.
I never have to question how he is because he is well taken care of. I have been leaving Tyson with Jen for a couple years and have always come home to a happy pup.
We appreciated Jen's responsiveness and nurturing of our puppy. Presley enjoyed her stay and we will definitely use Jen again.
Boo and Nola had a great time on their "vacay" with Jen! We really enjoyed seeing their cute photos everyday, even though sometimes they were camera shy :) Jen is very easy to work with, and we will definitely book again! THANK YOU! :) :)
Another great stay! Arya always loves going to Jen's and has now started to recognize when we're on our way to her house. It makes leaving just a little bit easier when I know she's going to have a great time:)
Jen did a great job with our dog, Tucker. I appreciated her visits and the pictures she sent while she took care of him. I also loved that she was willing to care for him at our house.
Jen does a great job caring for our pets while we are away. They always seem well cared for and happy when we return home!
Jen was awesome. She helped me out big time with a last minute reservation. My dog seemed very happy.
Riley had a wonderful stay with Jen and her dogs, as usual! Thanks Jen!!
This was my dog's first visit with Jen and it was a hit for him! He felt right at home with Jen's two dogs and other people in the house! Being an only dog with one owner, I was uncertain how he would do but it was great. Jen sent pictures and videos of the dogs every other day or so. Thanks so much, Jen! We'll for sure be back:-)
Such good communication, so easy to set up the appointment, and awesome pictures while I was away! Only complaint is that my greyhound is mopey now that she left Jen ;)
I can't say enough good things about Arya's stay with Jen. She was so incredibly accommodating of her special diet and meds. This is her home away from home and we'll definitely be back:)
Riley had a great stay with Jen as always!
Our Yorkie, Riley, had a great time with Jen and her pups. She came home all tuckered out from playing and taking lots of walks. And we were at ease knowing Jen was taking good care of her. Thanks Jen!
We and our pups love Jen! Jen and her roommate have watched our two small dogs (a havanese and long haired chiuahaha) twice now. We will keep going back to her for sure. We always get our boys back happy and healthy. They love the daily walks, and snuggles. Her two girl dogs are friendly, even if our boys are distant and shy. I never worry while we are away. Jen sends us pictures of the boys during their stay and they always look like they are comfortable, even if they miss their mommy and daddy! She has a great small, fenced in yard for them to romp around in and lives in a sweet little neighborhood with sidewalks. I definitely recommend Jen to anyone needing a dog sitter!
Jen was great with my Jack. She was able to pet-sit him last minute and keep him an additional day when I got stuck over night at the airport. She was very responsive anytime I checked in. I would recommend her! Thanks Jen!
Jen was so fantastic! She was accommodating for Arya's sensitive systems diet and our last minute scheduling. It was great to receive picture and video updates while we were away. Absolutely will not hesitate to have her take care of Arya in the future!
Jen was amazing with Lily. I instantly felt great about leaving Lily for a week when we had the meet&greet. We were out of the country, but Jen was able to update on Lily trough email and that reassured us greatly. She was able to help Lily with her anxiety issues and gave us many tips & suggestions to help us with improving in her training. Jen was excellent and we will definitely use her again!
This is my second review and as before, I am so happy with my experience! My absolute favorite is receiving the cutest photo updates of Paisley every couple of days. Jen lives about 35 minutes away from me, but the trip is completely worth it knowing my little pup is in great hands =)
This was my first experience with DogVacay and Jen, and boy, she did not disappoint! I was out of town for a little over a week, and this was the first time I was not able to have a friend watch my little Yorkie, Paisley. Fortunately I found out about DogVacay through a Google search and booked Jen based off her many happy reviewers- and am now a happy reviewer myself =)
Jen has a great personality and I immediately trusted her with my furbaby. She sent pictures as well as videos of Paisley playing with her 2 pups. They got along perfectly!
I am very happy and grateful to have discovered this service, have recommended it to friends & family, and will absolutely be a repeat customer. Thank you Jen!
Our dog has spent at least 3 different visits with Jen. She is a little farther for us to travel to take him to her, but it is worth the trip. He is well cared for and seems very happy. She sent pictures and a video during his stay. Our dog gets along well with her fur babies so we feel very good about him staying with her.
Jen was great! Sadie had an awesome time. I would definitely recommend Jen and would use her again!
Excellent as always!! As happy as Pippin, my 3 pound Yorkie missed me, I don't think he wanted to leave Jen! That is all I needed to feel! Thanks Jen!!
Jen is a terrific host! I would highly recommend her.
Jen was wonderful, and the pictures of our dog during her stay were appreciated!
This was Bradley's second time with Jen and he was so happy to go back. He and her dogs get along so well. We received pictures of his stay with her. I would not hesitate to use Jen again.
Jen was our first introduction to using this service and she completely won us over. We received pictures while we were away. When we picked him up after our vacation he was worn out and so happy. I loved the conditions under which he was kept and her two little dogs helped him with his manners and socialization skills. Jen is absolutely wonderful. If you get a chance to work with her, you won't be disappointed.
My pups had a great time. They were so happy when I arrived to pick them up. They played long and hard while they were there and when we got home both dogs laid down and slept all evening. Got up just long enough to go out before going to bed for the night. This is the first time I have ever seen them this quite!
Thank you so much Jen. Snickers and Kitty were so happy when I got home. They seemed to have a great time and were so worn out from playing that they both slept in the car on the way home. I truely appreciate you working with me and being flexible with the drop off and pick up times. You never know with traffic during the holidays when you will be getting home. Thank you again and I will be calling you soon for their next stay with you.
Jen was excellent with our pet. She was caring and had two lovely dogs for him to play with.
I could not have asked for a more loving person than Jen to take care of my Ollie! He stayed with Jen and her 2 wonderful dogs for 12 days. Ollie had love, playmates and security! When I picked him up he was happy, playful and obviously had been taken in to Jen's family lovingly.

As long as Jen will babysit Ollie, he has found his second home! Thank you Jen!
Jen is an EXCELLENT dog sitter. She watched our dog Seamus for almost two weeks while we were away. His ear was bugging him and she was immediately attentive and got him the medical attention he needed and communicated with us along the way. We would hire her again in a minute, but unfortunately for us, she is heading to a new community. Raleigh is lucky to have her! She will be missed here in Albuquerque! Seamus says Woof (I think he meant happy trails)!

Best Wishes!
Jen did a wonderful job.we could tell because Joe was completely content when he got home & went back into his usual routine very smoothly. That doesn't usually happen when we leave him with other sitters. Thank you Jen!
Jen is awesome! I always feel great leaving Frida with her when I'm out of town. I'll definitely continue using Jen as my petsitter
Jen is very sweet and kind person. She enjoys animals and my dog loved being with her and her 2 small dogs too. I know I will calling on her again in a couple of months.
Last minute I had to add an extra day to my original booking and Jen was totally cool with it. In fact, my entire booking was kind of last minute. I really felt relieved knowing that I had a safe and comfortable place to send Frida. I would definitely recommend Jen and her pups as a dog sitter. Also, she sent Frida home with beautiful homemade dog treats, which Frida adored. Talk about great hospitality. Thanks, Jen for taking care of my Frida.
Jen and her two pups were fabulous! I felt great leaving my dog with her. I love that Frida was able to interact with other dogs and she was able to stay in the comfort of a warm house rather than a kennel. I also loved how convenient Jen's location was. I will definitely use Jen again the next time I go out of town.
