About Jillian

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi parents! My name is Jillian. From a small age I have been the absolute definition of an "animal lover". Recently moving to Bend by way of California, I have acquired a property that has wide open spaces for my two fur children and yours to roam. We are an active household, always on the move trying to find the next fun activity to engage our dogs and keep them happy and healthy. Be prepared to pick up a happy and sometimes a bit dirty pup. :) Example outings are to the Metolius and Deschutes Rivers, the Pine Nursery Dog Park and various dog friendly hikes in the area. I will confirm your comfort with these adventures before embarking on them. With that said, we would love to meet you!

UPDATE: As much as I would LOVE to make pet sitting a full time gig, I have obtained a weekday part-time job to bring in some extra money. With that said I am always available for weekends, full-time watching your pups. If your needs are during the weekdays, with your comfort and mine, our pack is happy to welcome additions knowing I will be away from the house and they will be unsupervised for roughly 5-6 hours a day. Please reach out to me with any questions you may have regarding and I can let you know how our two dogs navigate those 5-6 hours of freedom. :)

Special Note:

•Boarding in our home is for a 24-hour period (including overnight). This also includes walks, feeding, special instructions, and plenty of cuddles!

••Of course, travel plans don't always match up to a 24-hour period, so I encourage you to discuss pickup and drop-off times with me at the time of booking. Should your Vacay last longer than the 24-hour period, I may charge an additional fee through a Custom Quote.

Pick-Up/Drop-Off Rate:
•I am happy to arrange to pick-up and drop-off your pet. Please consider that customers will be charged the specified rate for this service for every one-way trip I make.

Thank you for understanding these notes and please do not hesitate to ask me any questions regarding!

Jillian was a wonderful caregiver for, "Our Girls"! I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a loving, beautiful, caring environment for your pets! Gorgeous property, and beautiful home! Thank you!
PS...Both her dogs were just as welcoming! :)
Great experience. I would highly recommend Jillian.
Jillian was great. She has a nice home with a big yard for the dogs to run around in. No complaints here
Our big dog had a wonderful time with Jillian. The fenced property made me feel comfortable and she kept him happy by taking him to play at different lakes and rivers. We also received photo updates which was very nice.
Jillian is an amazing host! She has an innate understanding of dogs, and what they need to feel comfortable and happy during their stay. Communication with her was excellent, and drop-off and pick-up went smoothly. Our pup came back happy and healthy. I would not hesitate to book with Jillian again, and strongly recommend her to anyone needing a dog sitter in the Bend/Sisters area.
Excellent dog sitter!! Great spacious place for dogs to run and Jillian was very accomadating.
This was my first time boarding the dogs and Jillian was the right prescription for my nerves! Clearly, she is knowledgable about dog training, pack mentality, and dog boarding etiquette. She gave me the reassurance and updated I needed in order to fully enjoy my vacation while my dogs were in her care. My dogs were happy, exercised, and well cared for. Her two dogs were friendly, playful, well trained and perfect companions for my two labs. Jillian was just fantastic and I would not hesitate to leave my dogs in her care again. I highly recommend her as a dog sitter!
We were so very happy with our experience with Jillian. She sent us a note during the day to let us know how our dogs were doing which was so nice. We will definitely use her again when in the Bend area and highly recommend her.
Our high energy German Shorthair had a wonderful 3 night stay with Jillian. She was very flexible with pickup and drop off. She sent pictures/videos and updates regularly. Her dogs were sweet and great playmates for our dog. She has a wonderful, dog friendly property with lots of room for running around and relaxing. We will definitely use her again. So glad we found her!
