About Jillian

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a special education teacher in the Rochester, MN area. My husband is a Mayo medical student and we live together with our dogs. Tucker is an english bulldog and 3 years old. Teddy is our 1.5 year old collie.

We are such animal lovers and enjoy spending our weekends and nights with our pets. My husband always grew up with dogs and I have always had dogs around in the family as well. I have always dog sat for neighbors growing up. We always take our pups outside to play, or on the cold days have them play in our finished basement that is a big open space. They also go for daily walks and love playing with their many toys!

During the days your dog spends with me it will get lots of love and attention. My two dogs will give your dog lots of attention and love to play! We have room in the backyard to play and lots of toys.

We would love to care for your pup when you are gone! We truly pride ourselves on the best care and treat your dog as one of our own. We try to be as consistent as the family with pups, so that they are comfortable and feel as though they are at home. I typically sent pictures/videos of your dog during a stay which can be requested to be sent through the site, via email, or text based on your preference!

Why I love dog sitting
I have been a dog lover my entire life. I love to be able to experience different dog breeds though dog sitting and it is so fun to get to know different personalities based on each breed. I always loved being at people's homes with dogs and dog sitting growing up. This has become not just a job for me, but rather a passion. I genuinely love having dogs stay with us whether it is for daycare, a night, or a few months!

About my yard
We have a yard, and it is fenced! We love to play fetch with the pups outside and they love to play chase out there! We also have a giant finished basement to have dogs play during the cold months.

My experience administering medication
My bulldog has eye drops and oral medication for his allergies. He also gets his wrinkles and ears cleaned nightly. We have had many dogs stay that required different medications or special care instructions such as diapers.

My dogs are my life and I understand as an owner how you are looking for someone to take good care of your pups while you are gone.

**If I am booked up shoot me a message. I can try my best to accommodate you!**

**Some of our dates say unavailable. Please still inquire because our schedule is always changing and can typically add more pups to stay!!**

**It is highly encouraged that your dog gets the bordatella shot. They must have their rabies and all other required shots up to date.**

**We try to make sure that your pup is a good fit for us and our other guest dogs. Therefore, we will likely ask lots of questions about your pup and their behaviors.**

Jillian took great care of my dog, Dexter. She gave daily updates and Dexter looked like he had a great time.
Jillian is so great! I loved the frequent pictures and updates. It made feel better knowing my pup was in such good hands while I was away. She even gave him a bath before he came home. Will definitely be contacting Jillian again in the future!
This was our first Dog Vacy experience. Jillian was great and took good care of our 14 year old Lucy. Would use her again.
