About Jennifer

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
All dogs want a fun adventure in a safe environment. We take that super seriously.

Owners Jen & James are long time dog lovers. Jen grew up with a Golden Retriever from the time she was 5-21. She adopted "Seamus the Shameless" beagle 10 years ago and has had puppy love ever since. James didn't grow up with a dog but he has 3 years of pup watching experience.

We live in a spacious apartment in a dog friendly building in downtown Brooklyn, walking distance from Brooklyn Bridge Park and the parks at Cadman Plaza. We both work from home so someone is always here. We are big believers in long outdoor walks to neighboring parks or to the waterfront. Plenty of sniffing and an opportunity for doggies to stretch their legs! We also are advocates of making sure dogs get a healthy diet - ours gets a homemade natural meat and vegetable stew (courtesy of James) mixed in with his dry food every day.

Our beagle, Seamus, is super sweet and playful. He's very docile and is amazing with hyper young puppies. Basically he just sits and lets them jump all over him! He would love the opportunity to hang out with other sweet friendly dogs. Give us a jingle! We'll treat your dogs as well as our own.

Jenn, James and Seamus were absolutely fabulous! They open up their home and truly treated Felix like one of the family. They are wonderful sincere, compassionate dog lovers and create a fun, loving doggie vacation. Next time I'm out of town I won't have the slightest hesitation to reserve a few nights with them!

Thank you guys!
Felix and Mimi
Jen and James were great hosts. They were super responsive and flexible, and sent frequent and cute updates. I'm sure my pup wasn't as angelic as they said he was while with them but they were wonderful caring for him and keeping him healthy and entertained while I was traveling. Seamus is also a friendly host who was happy to share his space and toys. Great stay for Mikey!
Bernie had such a great time with Seamus and all his buddies! I couldn't have been happier with Jennifer and James watching over my lil guy. He had a blast and will definitely want to go back!
Sofia had a wonderful time on her vacay. From walks to belly rubs, she couldn't stop raving about how attentive and hospitable her hosts were. Would highly recommend!
Ferdinand had an amazing time at Jennifer's place. She sent cute photos and videos throughout the vacay, so I could see Ferdinand was well taken care of and was having a super fun time. Ferdie also got along well with Seamus the beagle.
Jennifer and James were GREAT hosts for my pet Pomeranian! They are super responsible and informed about pet health, and were very understanding when he had an accident on the carpet. I got daily photos and videos which really put my mind at ease. Thanks again!
Jennifer is excellent host. My dog Tora was diagnosed with herniated disk right before our trip and we were quite unsure if we could ask her to give special care and medication on top of normal care. She did more than perfect job taking care of Tora.
We highly recommend her!!
Jennifer, James and Seamus were amazing! In the past Sophie is a shy dog and has been very sad every time I leave her behind but not with Jennifer! She was very happy and playful while we were away and I think Seamus was an excellent puppy host. Jennifer often sent me pictures and video of how well Sophie was doing! We will definitely be using Jennifer again and I think we have made a life long puppy friend for Sophie.
Jennifer and James were great hosts. Very professional and friendly, sent plenty of updates, and clearly took the responsibility of looking after another person's pet very seriously.

My beagle Ella had a great time playing with Seamus and seemed to be right at home. Would definitely recommend to others!
We had a very positive experience with Jennifer. She sent frequent photos and updates and was obviously giving our dog constant attention. Our pooch got along with Seamus quite well and seemed to really enjoy her time there.

We won't hesitate to use them again!
Jennifer was a wonderful host. She and her boyfriend were so nice and they took really good care of my dog, even when she was having small accidents that she has never had before! She was great about sending me updates and photos and was super quick to respond. Definitely would recommend her to anyone. Thanks, Jennifer!
Jennifer and her boyfriend were fantastic hosts. Not only was my dog spoiled with homemade food and lots of games of fetch, i received so many updates I felt like we weren't even apart. Will definitely be back!
Moops had a totally pawsome experience at Jennifer and James while I had to be out of town for few days. It was her first sleepover in Brooklyn. She is happily going back a week later. The place is full of toys and she has a total crush on the boy of the house , the adorable Seamus. They play together, have long walks in the parks and pose for tons of pictures and videos recorded by Jennifer who is the best host you can wish for. Thank you for taking such a good care of Moops!
Everything was great! They are so open and helpful! They kept us posted all the time with photos and even videos! Gaudí is only 4 month old and there didn't mind the extra effort!
I am loathe to spread the word about this great host, but Jennifer, James, and Seamus were the perfect caregivers for our dog Evelyn.

We met the crew the night before and were very comfortable because of the knowledge that Jennifer had about dog behavior. She watched our dog closely to see how she would interact with Seamus and handled both dogs really well. Seamus was very interested in our dog, Evelyn. After a little bit Seamus and Evelyn calmed down and it became clear that they would become good compatriots in their adventures around Brooklyn.

When we dropped Evelyn off first thing in the morning, James appeared to be baking dog treats. Let me repeat that, the dog sitter appeared to be baking dog treats when we dropped our dog off. They were undoubtedly organic. Our New York cynicism was demolished by the hospitality that they showed Evelyn. Jennifer sent us numerous pictures of their exploits.

Upon return we picked Evelyn up and she looked completely at home in their house. She wouldn't have wanted to leave except for the fact that she knew that doorman would give her a treat on the way out the door. When Evelyn got back to our apartment she looked totally comfortable and tired from a great weekend with Jennifer, James & Seamus. I would highly recommend this host.
