About Jennifer

Effective June 1st, I will be unable to accept new overnight clients. My current clients aren't always able to reserve a spot. It pains me to say no to the people and pups who have been loyal for years.

Looking for a place for your furkid to stay, play and relax while you're away? Our home may be the perfect fit. With a fully fenced back yard, multiple trails and walking paths nearby, and a dog park within a five minute walk...I'm here to pamper your pooch. There are currently no dogs living in our home, so yours will get lots of playtime and belly-rubs.

Whether your dog is a love-bug that just wants to lounge and snuggle, or likes to play fetch until he flops, we have the time and energy and love to meet those needs.

I have twelve years of experience with dogs and have worked for myself as a professional pet sitter for three years.
Please feel free to message me with any questions or to schedule a meet and greet.

**Only spayed and neutered dogs please.

***Allergies?
Please be aware that our home is shared with a five-year-old cat.

Discounts available for seniors and those with extended stays - (10 days or more).

Jennifer is amazing! Our 7 year old mixed lab, China just LOVES coming to stay with her and runs up to her door when ever we drop her off.
Brunswick has a great time with Jen and the other guests. She keeps me updated on what they've been up to with photos. This time I wasn't sure if he wanted to come home with me or stay there.Made my vacation stress free.
Jennifer and her family took great care of Winston, as always! This time, we needed to take a very last minute trip, and Jennifer was very accommodating of our timeline and times for drop-off and pick-up. Lots of great pictures let us know that he was doing great while we were gone!

Jennifer is fantastic with our little rescue dog! Ries seems to be very comfortable staying with Jennifer and her family as well as the other dog guests. We cannot recommend Jennifer enough, especially to those who have a pup that has fear/trust issues and a little special attention.

Brunswick had a great time with Jen. She sends me wonderful photos and a description of what they were up to and he always makes new doggy friend when he is there. I never worry about him when he is there.
Annabelle loves going to Jennifer's! So lucky we found her!
Snow had a fantastic stay with Jennifer! It gave us such peace of mind knowing she was well cared for and having fun with other doggy friends. Loved all the updates and photos Jennifer provided as well
2nd time with Jennifer & she was great as always! She is wonderful about sending pictures & keeping you updated.
1st time using DogVacay, so me were a little nervous. Jennifer reassured us and spent plenty of time explaining things. She sent several pictures updating us. It was great to have all the pictures and communication. Jennifer is wonderful. We will be back!

Jennifer was amazing as always! She is such a professional who puts the dogs first and is so good about keeping them happy. Kahlo had another great time and we loved the pictures along the way to know that our pup was happy and healthy and running around with friends! I don't have to worry when we leave Kahlo with Jennifer, every time has been great and we will be back.

Goldie Bear did great at Jenn's. He doesn't normally get enough exercise but he got plenty at Jenn's between chasing other dogs around and going on solid daily walks. He lost a few pounds (he needed to). I will definitely bring him back whenever I can.

Our lab stayed with Jennifer and her family for nearly three weeks, and the care was amazing. Jennifer took her on long walks, kept her cool on the hot days with dips in creeks and ponds, and she communicated with me regularly about how my dog was doing, including sending photos of her every few days. She is so dedicated to taking excellent care of her dogs! I highly recommend her!!!!

Awesome! We had both of our high energy dogs stay with Jennifer at they loved it! Plenty of exercise and lots of pictures of them! Would highly recommend and will use Jennifer to watch them again in the future!
I think our dog might like Jennifer more than us!
Fantastic - Cassie lov es to stay at Jenn's
Cassie loves to stay at Jenn's house and we love to leave there.
Jack had another great stay with Jennifer. Due to uncommonly wet weather, Jennifer had to deal with lots of wet and muddy paws, but she made sure Jack had a chance to get out an exercise every day. Jack is always happy to see Jennifer, and the peace of mind we have leaving Jack with her while we're out of town is priceless. Thanks Jennifer!

Jennifer was great! Really appreciated that she took the time to meet the dogs in advance and also to introduce the dogs to the other dogs she was watching. My two pups have their "quirks" and Jennifer did a great job with them. They came home exhausted for the entire next day so it was like an extended vacation!!

Our dog had another great stay with Jennifer, she really goes above and beyond for her canine guests!
Jennifer is great with all the dogs she takes care of and wants to make sure they all get along with each other, she had a great way to introduce everyone to each other. Nacho was exhausted when we picked him up from all the walks and playing.
Thank you Jennifer for taking such great care of Jane!!! :-) Kim
We were nervous since this was our first week away from our 10 month old little guy. Our pup could not have been in better hands - we are thrilled to have found Jennifer L. What a difference it makes to know your dog is in excellent care while you are away!

Cosmo had a great time at Jennifer's house again. He is thoroughly tired out. So great to know he is well cared for and having fun. Jennifer and her family are the best.
Jennifer was excellent! She sent me text updates with pictures of my dog Jane everyday! Jane got lots of walks and cuddles! Thank you Jennifer!
I never worry about Annabelle, she's in great hands!
Winston had another great stay with Jennifer and her family! We got lots of great picture updates, so we knew he was having a good time and making new friends (with both people and dogs). We also appreciate Jennifer's flexibility with our changing pick-up time.

Great as usual
Jennifer (and family) were great with our dog Ries! Ries is a shy/fearful dog, who can be a territorial and bit challenging for others, and Jennifer really set us as ease during our initial visit. When we left Ries for the weekend we knew that she would do OK there. Jennifer sent numerous text updates and photos which are always wonderful when you're leaving your dog with someone new for the first time. By the end of her stay, Ries had warmed up to Jennifer and her family, a bit; which is always what we hope for. Looking forward to out next trip and knowing that Ries will be well loved and cared for!

This was the first Christmas that we traveled by plane, and had to leave Winston behind. The only place I would even consider leaving him is with Jen and her family! Just like his previous stays here, I know that he had a great time because I got some wonderful picture updates and descriptions of what they were up to. Jen was also very flexible and helpful when we had an unexpected flight delay. She's the best!

I've lost track of how many times Jen has watched our dog Digby, and we are very pleased every time. You can expect regular updates with photos, and lots of playtime for your dog. We even returned home in the middle of a snow storm this time, and she kept Digby an extra night at no charge to make sure we were safe in coming to pick him up. Very highly recommended!

Jen is absolutely wonderful. I never worry about Tegan when she's spending the day with Jen because I know she's having a blast and being well cared for by a responsible, professional, skilled adult who loves and understands dogs. Tegan comes home happy and tired from her fun adventures and practically jumps out of the car with excitement the next time we drop her at Jen's. I cannot recommend Jen more highly.

Our standard poodle Cosmo had a great time with Jen and her family over Thanksgiving. He got plenty of exercise and love. So much that he gave us the cold shoulder when we picked him up. I think he wanted to stay longer! Would not hesitate to book again.

Our pup had a great weekend at Jennifer's house! She kept us updated with plenty of pictures, and our dog had lots of fun with all the doggy-daycare visitors.
Fantastic - That's her norm!
Jennifer was very flexible and our pup was very happy. She took our dog on several walks, kept us up to date with several rounds of pictures and updates!
My dog had such a great time and I got photos and updates on what he was up to. When I got the first update I laughed and thought "I made the right choice, he is so happy there."
I never worry about Annabelle when she stays with Jennifer! She's happy and content when I pick her up - she's treated like "one of the family"!
Jen is simply the best. She takes wonderful and thoughtful care of our pup, Kirby, who can be a sensitive boy and has special needs from time to time. Every day at Jen's is a true vacation - the dogs are always doing fun trips and enjoy one another's company. I don't know what we'd do without Jen and her wonderful family - Kirby truly views them as his second home. Thanks Jen!

Hi...my name is Wrigley Jane and I am a 2-year old pup who is lucky enough to get to hang out with Miss Jen several days a week. My Mom is a single parent to me and has to work to give us both a great life. Because of that, I get to go to daycare with Miss Jen and I absolutely love it! We go on several field trips a day, I have learned how to be a social puppy and she has even worked to reinforce my skills that I learned at doggy school a while back. Currently, we are working hard at me becoming a perfect off-leash dog. I am so thankful my Mom found Jen over a year ago so I could spend my days learning, exploring, and playing instead of at home. I hope you send your pup to play with me soon. I always love meeting new friends and you should know that Miss Jen is the best. I can tell she loves me a lot and takes the best care of me when my Mom is away!

Jen is a fantastic match for my boy Hansie. The service she provides is exceptional. Truly. I don't worry about him during the day because I know he is in great hands. He is beyond excited to see her and start his day, playing and hiking and enjoying his doggy friends. He is tired and content when I get home from work and I love reading the email/txt and seeing the pics from his day! He's a happy boy in Jen's care. She truly cares about him and helps him be a happier and more disciplined guy. She is communicative, helpful, friendly and easy to work with. Five plus stars!!

The Kuykendall family loves, loves, loves Jen and her family. We are never worried or stressed when we leave Abby because we know she will be well cared for and loved just like we love her. And Abby gets so excited when we start collecting her things to go to Jen's house because she knows she is in for a good time. Sometimes I think Abby looks a little sad to leave Jen's house when we get home because she loves it so much there! Thanks for making our travels so stress-free.

Our minature golden doodle received the best care imaginable during his stay with Jennifer. We received daily updates of his activities with plentiful photos (and videos) of his stay. He was happy and well-cared for. I would not hesitate to use dogvacay with Jennifer for our future dog care needs.

Great - as usual!
My dog Wrigley has been going to Jen's for over a year now and we both absolutely LOVE her. She is so great with Wrigley when she comes for daycare. She works with her on commands (she is less than 2 y/o still), does off leash training with her, and is overall just so wonderful to my pup. Wrigley gets so excited when I ask her "Are you ready to go to daycare?" I know my dog is well taken care of and loved while she is there. When Wrigley stays overnight, I am always so relaxed because I know she is in great hands. Jen sends picture updates every day and I look forward to seeing them. Jen is an amazing person with an amazing family and they all do a wonderful job loving on our pups. Wrigley is so well socialized because she spends several days a week at Jen's house and I am so happy we have found her!

This was an extended stay for Cassie (6+ weeks) and Jenn was great. She took care of Cassie for the majority of that time and delivered her to another kennel for the several days that she was out of town. It is impossible to speak too highly of Jennifer. I especially appreciated her daily email with photos of Cassie.

The last time I boarded Cassie for an extended stay before finding Jenn she came home with a horse voice from barking in the kennel. It took her a month to recover. This time she came home health, happy, and better behaved than before we brought to Jenn.

Jennifer and her family took great care of Winston again! Great picture updates let us know that he was having a blast while we were away. It's clear that he had lots of opportunities to run and play, which he loved!
Jennifer does a wonderful job of making it so easy for us to go on vacation and know that Jack is well taken care. Jack loves to stay with Jennifer and play with all his friends there.
When i picked Cody up he looked sad leaving jennifer's house. I got tons of exercise and I believe had a great time. I will definitely use Jennifer's services again.
Jennifer went out of her way to make Annabelle feel special! Sooo grateful, Thanks Jennifer!
As always, Jen was awesome. It feels like Kahlo has a second family, and we know how much fun he has when we leave him with Jen because we get pictures! Can't go wrong, she is great with dogs and really knows how to make your pup comfortable and entertained. This truly is a vacation for your dog, they are very active and get to play a LOT! When we pick him up all he wants to do is sleep! :)

Jennifer took excellent care of our dog, Dakota! He got lots of activity and attention during his time with Jennifer, and some special care due to a nagging hotspot. Dakota came home happy and tired. Jennifer was very accommodating in regards to our travel plans and sent nice photo updates while we were away. I highly recommend her.

Jennifer was absolutely wonderful taking care of my dog, Kona, who is very active and loves exercise. She also had an ear infection at the time. Jennifer took exceptional care of Kona's ear infection and gave Kona plenty of fun and exercise. I got daily videos and pictures of Kona running and playing with other dogs and having a grand time! I could not have been happier with the care Kona received and will not hesitate to use Jennifer again. A wonderful experience! Jennifer is an absolute gem of a host!

Jennifer was absolutely incredible. It was the first time our little girl was away from us and I could not have hoped for a better experience. Jennifer was organized and conscientious of Ella's needs. Her home is a puppy paradise with dog beds, crates, a large fenced-in yard, tons of toys, etc. She also kept me up to date on her activities with pictures and videos, making me feel secure and comfortable that all was well. In fact, Ella can't wait for us to go away again so she can spend more time with her new friends!

Jennifer's fantastic. I felt comfortable right away leaving my boy in her hands. She sent pics half way through the day just as I was wondering how he was doing. She went above and beyond and boy was he tired when he got home! Thank you Jennifer! It's such a relief to know he is being well cared for.

Just got back to a very happy pup after he had another great stay with Jen and her family! They treated him as if he was their own, and he had a blast. The picture and video text messages were great, and we got to see that he really did have a great time while we were gone!

Jen and her family are amazing. I usually leave my pups with family whenever we have anything come up, but we've had a wedding and a funeral that required us to search elsewhere. My dogs are quirky as ever and they love their time with Jen's family. It's a relief knowing that we have someone that spoils and cuddles with the dogs as much as we do. I would recommend Jen to anyone!

Jennifer was awesome and really made us feel comfortable leaving Harley in her care. From the initial "meet and greet" to the photo and message updates while we were away to the follow up the day after we returned checking in to see how Harley was doing, we could not be more pleased with our experience.

My dog Lincoln has some special needs (no need to bore anyone with the details), which Jennifer handled easily. She matched Lincoln with other client dogs who would likely be a good fit in play style and temperament, keeping the safety and happiness of all the dogs as her primary goal.

Jennifer has an innate "dog sense" that enables her to be a quiet leader of that particular day's pack composition, which she strictly limits in size to maintain order and safety of the dogs.

I am confident that Lincoln is in good hands. As a person without kids who treats my dogs like they're my children, I tend to be kind of intense about how people interact with Lincoln. I feel very comfortable leaving him with Jennifer; he comes home waggy and tired, and clearly enjoys being with her and with the dogs she has carefully selected to play with him that day.

As other reviewers have mentioned, Jennifer is great about sending multiple pictures of your dog's play that day, which you can't help but smile at and feel great about because you can see how fantastic your dog's day is going.

I think my dog had so much fun and felt so comfortable at Jennifer's, that it was just as nice as being at home. I can leave town with peace of mind knowing my best friend is in good, loving hands.
Jenn is very flexible and easy to work with drop-off and pick-up times. I was caught up in a snowstorm last night and arrived at her house way too late. Of course, I was fretting the whole time I was driving, knowing how it was affecting her family time. Jenn could not have been kinder when I arrived. I was almost in tears, but her demeanor immediately made me feel like it was ok. You can't fake that.
My dog loves being with Jennifer and her family. It gives me so much joy to watch him leave me to spend time with her with his tail wagging and a big expectant smile. Priceless!
Jenn sends wonderful pictures with cute stories about what Tipper did or how he interacted with the other dogs. My day just seems happier when Tipper is with Jennifer.

Jennifer did a great job of making our dog comfortable with his first stay over. She made sure he had lots of activity, and TLC. He's one tired puppy! We appreciated her daily updates, which helped us know things we're going well. Thanks Jennifer!

Jennifer was great! Kept us updated on Stanley. Especially nice since this was the first time Stanley has been away from us. Thank you, Jennifer!
Our first experience with DogVacay was outstanding. It was so nice to have flexible pick up/drop off times, Jen sent updates, photos and video all weekend so we never even thought about our pup. We just knew she was in the care of a loving family! Thank you.

Awesome!! China ran out of the car straight to Jennifer for cuddles then ran up the front steps straight into the house with no goodbyes! Jennifer & her family take such good care of her!! Thank you Jennifer!!
Jennifer is a joy. Tipper runs me over to get out of the car when we pull in her driveway. Between Jen, the other dogs Tipper hangs out with at her house and her family, I know Tipper is well-loved.
I can spend my day with a happy heart knowing my baby is having fun and being loved.
THANK YOU, JEN!

Thank you Jennifer!!
Jennifer was great. She kept me updated with texts and photos and was very accommodating. My pup, Yuki, had a great time at her place!
My pup always has a good time at Jennifer's and how do I know this? Because he gobbles his dinner up as soon as we get home and hits his bed. He may mosey up after a couple of hours to see if he can squeeze an extra walk out of me, but for the most part, he is out for the night.
Jennifer takes special care to make sure Tipper is comfortable with his surroundings. She made time to have alone time with Tip to take him on a special one-on-one walk before he "entered" the pack. So kind and understands dogs. Thank you, Jennifer!
Read More...
Jennifer was so friendly she has a lovely home with a great back yard. Our dog China loved being able to play in the yard. Jennifer sent me a detailed update with lots of photos of how China was doing.
We are so happy to have found Jennifer. Its great also that she's so close by. We will be using her again for sure! Thank you Jennifer for taking such good care of China!!

We could not have been happier with the care Jennifer gave to our dog. Jennifer was professional in all aspects regarding Bayla's stay with her, from communicating over details of Bayla's routine prior to her "dog vaca" to the daily photos and emails we received that kept us updated on Bayla's well-being. We'll use Jennifer as a dog sitter again in a heart-beat!

Jennifer took such great care of my dog! She came home happy and tired =)
Jennifer understands dogs and their owners. Today was Tipper's first day and I received pictures all day showing him having fun. It was very heartening to see him happy as I am new to this.
He ate a huge dinner when he got home and has been melted into his bed since.
I can't wait until he gets to go there again. The thought of him being with other dogs, going for and walks and rides and being cared for by someone who appreciates his sweetness is everything.
I'm just not sure who is happier!
Thank you, Jennifer.

My pup has been going to Jen's about 3 times a week for daycare since August. Before I found Jen, I had visited several big daycare companies and always left feeling that there were too many dogs, not enough employees and was afraid my dog would get hurt.

From the moment I met Jen, I knew she was a perfect fit for us. Wrigley loves going to her house and gets so excited everytimr we pull up. My dog has a bit of separation anxiety but she runs right up to Jen's door with total excitement for the day and doesn't look back. Jen keeps them busy all day, taking them on walks, to dog parks and other adventures. Let's just say that my very energetic puppy sleeps very well after spending the day with Jen. On top of all of that, Jen emails pictures and updates everyday....sometimes even a couple times a day. I am so glad to have found Jen and her wonderful family. I highly recommend her to everyone I know. If you want someone who will love on your pup, is 100% trustworthy, and has a big heart, give Jen a try.....I guarantee she'll knock your socks off!!

Jennifer is great with Jolie! Our pup came home happy and tired out!
Jen is the best dog sitter in the Boulder/Louisville area (and potentially in all of Colorado!). We were referred to Jen by word of mouth, from a friendly neighbor who surprisingly told us that her crazy pup gets puckered out after a day at Jen’s. I was pleasantly shocked and intrigued and wondered if my dogs (who are high energy and wild in their own regard) would too be wound down and tired out. Jen’s approach to doggie care is admirable, she had us come in with the pooches for an intro; we got to see how they would interact with other dogs, it was really about the right combinations. Jen’s keen eye for amicable dog connections only increases my confidence and trust in her, I know my dogs are not only safe but are having an immense amount of fun. Photo updates midday are always cute and endearing, getting to see the fun your dogs are having is not only a great pick me up at work but also hints at how puckered out they will be afterwards. Jen is the most patient and caring doggie caretaker I have personally met and she is the only person I whole-heartedly trust with my puppies. :)

What a special time for my dog! Each day I received photos of him playing ball, cavorting with the other dogs, and relaxing in Jen's lovely back yard or lounging in her home. It was clear to me that he received a great deal of love and attention, including walks in the park and car rides. I'm so very grateful that I was able to go on my short trip without a worry in the world. When I picked him up today, he greeted me at her front door with a special chew bone...and I'm not entirely sure he really wanted to leave!
Read More...
Jennifer was absolutely amazing! Our pup is about a year and a half, and can be very shy and nervous, but Jennifer welcomed him into her home and took the time to make him comfortable right from the beginning. There were no problems his whole stay and she sent us so many photos of all the fun he was having, it really was a vacation for Kahlo! She made Kahlo a priority, and he came back happy and tired (he slept for pretty much a whole day he was so exhausted from all the fun). I know our dog would love to stay with Jennifer again, and its great to have an option for those times when we just can't take the dog with us. Thank you Jennifer!
Read More...
I cannot say enough positive things about Jen. She is awesome at sending me photos and keeping me posted on their activities. She is either taking Abby for walks, to the dog park, or playing in her back yard. Happy dog makes for a happy mom!! Thank you so much!

My puppy's stay with Jen was full of fun (pictures were provided). And, I was comfortable leaving him there. She was very accommodating as I left him early in the morning because I met friends for breakfast before we started our trip. It was so nice of her.

It literally couldn't have been a better experience. I was nervous, because I've never left my two girls with anyone, and Jennifer talked me through the whole process and kept me updated with pictures all weekend. Despite my whole trip happening during the flooding in Boulder County with local roads being a mess, Maida and Agnes came home happy, clean, well fed, well exercised, and well loved. We will absolutely use Jennifer again, happily.
Read More...
I was nervous about leaving my dog with someone new but Jennifer made the experience much easier. She was very welcoming and my dog seemed comfortable from the start. I received updates throughout the weekend about the activities they were doing and how my dog was doing as well. She took her on a walk and to a nearby dog park. I would highly recommend using Jennifer for your dog care and I will be using her again as well. Thank You.
Read More...
Jennifer is amazing! She welcomes your pet like they are one of the family. We got lots of updates so we knew he was doing well. It was so wonderful to be able to go away and not have to worry if our pooch was being treated well and taken care of, it was clear that he was being loved. We will definitely use Jennifer in the future.

Zeppelin & Ruby had a great stay with Jennifer. She walked them, played with them and her whole family gave them lots of love. We got wonderful updates with pictures and stories that gave us great peace of mind. Her house and yard are very dog friendly. She even took my dogs for car rides which they adored. I was so impressed and relieved to know how well my dogs were being cared for while we were out of town. This was our first time leaving our dogs with Jennifer, but will definitely not be our last. Thanks Amber, Kim, Gabe, Autumn, Zeppelin & Ruby!

I can't express how relieved I am to have found Jen. We recently moved to the area and I had to leave my dog in a "kennel" for the first time. After that day, I set out to find better care for my pup and Jen was the answer to my prayers (seriously, she was!). West is so comfortable staying at Jen's house and he has a TON of fun. It is great that he gets to spend time with other dogs and he has frequent walks/visits to the dog park. I never worry he is just sitting around and not getting any exercise. Jen is always super responsive to my requests for dates, she texts me often with updates and pictures, and best of all West gets to sleep in a dog bed in her home and with people around rather than a cold, dark kennel with lots of other dogs keeping him up all night. Thank you so much Jen!

This was my first experience leaving our family pet overnight. I was delighted to find the DogVacay site, because it is so much more comforting leaving one's trusted companion in a family home instead of in a loud, confined, smelly kennel. Jennifer was delightful. She truly gave our dog a vacation... from frozen beef broth popsicles and other homemade treats to frequent trips to the dog park and open space, Molly was busy, excited, and happy. She got lots of hugs and belly scratches, and was even allowed to sleep with the family at night. I felt completely secure in Jennifer's abilities, and even more so in her actual CARE for the pets she was watching. She has a big heart, an organized approach to this job, and an open home for the dogs she cares for. I couldn't be more happy! Thank you Jennifer!

Jennifer's home was the perfect fit for my pup! I always know my dog has been well taken care of when I show up and she is not frantic with energy to see me. I know that means my dog has had plenty of exercise, stimulation and is more balanced and that is exactly what she was like when I went to pick her up. I showed up, she came over and gave me a few sniffs and asked for a little greeting, then she went about her way in the back yard enjoying all the smells. Wonderful!!! She actually felt a bit depressed for about 2 days after going from such an active household (Jennifer's house) to an empty house (my house). So I am completely and thoroughly pleased I chose Jennifer to take care of my pup while I was gone. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and will absolutely use her again in future situations!

This was our second time using Jennifer and we were not disappointed. Digby got many visits to the nearby dog park had other playmates around all the time to keep him busy. Jen really makes sure that the pups in her care have lots of fun. We got a ton of photo updates, and we might even frame one of the pictures!
Read More...
Jen and her family took great care of Winston! I never worried about him because I knew he was in good hands, and I got lots of great photo updates!
Jennifer and her family were wonderful with my dog, Maya. They gave her lots of love and attention and treated her like part of their family. I have looked at lots of places to leave my dog and this is the first place where I didn't have even a second of hesitation or worry about leaving her. I hope to go back often!

We were nervous to leave our pup, Griffey, in someone else's care for the first time, but Jen put our minds at ease and made the experience great! She was patient with our high energy pup, and he had a wonderful stay. We would definitely recommend Jen and look forward to bringing Griffey back again.

Excellent care!
Jennifer and her family were amazing with our pup Digby. After the meet n' greet I felt 100% comfortable leaving Digby with them for our vacation. Digby got many visits to the nearby dog park and I'm sure loved having access to a backyard. When I picked him up it was clear that he had a great time, and that Jennifer had treated him just like family. We will definitely use Jennifer again in the future.

Jen is an awesome host! This was my dogs, Loki & Cici's second stay and they are always tired when they get home because they have such a great time at Jen's house! She sends great pictures & messages during their stay; it is such a great relief to know they are in wonderful and caring hands.

Our dog suffers a bit of separation anxiety, but Jen and her family welcomed Taylor and made her feel comfortable and loved. We were releived to able to leave our beloved dog with a wonderful family where she felt safe and secure! Thanks!!
Jennifer is an absolutely wonderful dog host. She was very active with my dog taking him on long walks and to the neighborhood dog parks. She has a house full of dog lovers so there was no shortage of lots of love and attention. She is also very attentive and accommodating, she knew I had a long day of flying behind me so she offered to deliver my dog right to my door which really helped me a lot. My experience with Jennifer was excellent and I take great comfort knowing her service is there.

My puppy, Moki, stayed with Jen and her family for four nights, and had a wonderful time. Jen sent us photos and reports every day. Her family took him on walks, played with him in the snow in their yard, and totally made him part of the family I was worried he would not want to come home! He even learned something new - how to sleep in his dog bed versus in the bed of a family member. We felt great knowing that Moki was in a comfortable home versus a cold kennel with a concrete floor. Thank you Dogvacay and Jen for this opportunity!
