About Jenn and Dean

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
First and foremost I am dedicated to making sure your dog has a LOVING, safe and stress-free time here at THE HAPPY DOGGIE CABIN. We have a cozy house and a HUGE fenced in yard. Nature and space all around! Your dog will love it here! They will be not be left alone in our yard unsupervised. My husband and I are thoughtful, caring animal lovers and we work from home and I appreciate you taking the time to read our profile when there are so many wonderful hosts on DogVacay.

A quick note: We require a meet and greet for all of our doggie guests. Our schedule is flexible so it'll be easy to set up!

My love for animals:
As a kid, I was always rescuing animals and bringing them home. As an adult, I believe animals are a way of life. When it comes to our four-legged doggy friends, I would say I’m not only a dog lover, I am a dog enthusiast. I read books on dog behavior. I want to understand them. I feel like this deepens my connection with them. My husband and I have had a lot of animals over the years, our last dog was a pit mix that we rescued right off our street. We had her for five amazing years until she got an aggressive cancer and she passed away. It crushed me and we are not quite emotionally ready to parent another four-legged soul, so we have no other pets at this time. That being said, we love helping parents out when they have to go out of town. We understand how stressful it can be to leave your pet in someone else's care. We are thoughtful pet sitters and have taken care of many friends' pets before opening up our home to Dog Vacay.

Happy Doggie Cabin - a premium doggie service:
- Multiple romps per day out in the half acre of nature
- Mini training sessions - Including hide and seek! - this is a fun game that gets them connected to me and wears them out. (I will adhere to the training commands you’ve established with your dog).
- A calm, relaxing chill place to sleep
- Plenty affection and love
- Photos and videos and updates so you are kept in the loop!

Other considerations and things to know:
- Dean and I work from home and have a flexible schedule but we do structure our time. Please be communicative on your pick up and drop off time.
- If you want your dog to be the only dog, that is totally doable! After the meet and greet we will work out a custom quote.
- Every dog is different and has a different level of energy. Walking is calming and necessary for dogs. However, because the yard is so massive, and rigorous exploration and exercise is possible within the confines of the fence, doggie walks are an additional fee starting at $10.
- If you have a senior dog or one that needs medication or has special care instructions - we are thorough and detail oriented and have a lot of experience caring for sick or disabled dogs.
- All dogs must have current vaccinations, be FLEA free and be fully house trained (puppies on a case by case basis).
- Please bring your own doggie bed. I have blankets if needed.
- I have taken many doggie training classes, so I will adhere to the commands you have in place for your dog.
- If you feel your dog would be better in a crate, please provide one. Or we can use our extra large crate for a $15 set up and take down fee.
- At this time, we are only comfortable taking dogs who are good with other dogs unless you’ve indicated that you’d like your dog to be solo here at The Happy Doggie Cabin.

Pick up and drop offs:
*** All overnights are a 24 hour period with a two hour grace period. So if you drop of at 11 AM you will want to pick up by 1 PM on the day you choose.
If you want to extend beyond the grace period, then we charge the regular daycare rate and you have the flexibility of picking your pup at a later time.
Please be clear on drop off and pick up times.

A typical day for us with your dog: Morning exercise, training and hide and seek. Then a little family breakfast, followed by lots of love and a snooze. Lots of pee breaks and romps throughout the day followed by dinner. When the evening gets cold, we snuggle up in front of the tv and watch a movie or show. This would be followed by a late night pee break, a treat if allowed, and then a tuck in.Then a final smooch good night as our eyelids get heavy and we dream of bones falling from the sky. It's pretty fun being here...

If you think you’re dog would be a good match with us, we’d love to meet her or him. Please message me and we can set something up.

Thank you so much for considering us.
We love dogs...and all other sentient beings.

Jennifer just loves animals, straight up. And is incredibly patient, kind, and smart. She has watched both of our dogs, and we absolutely relaxed knowing that they were not only in trusted hands, but that they were getting the love, understanding, and attention that buzzes animals. They were no doubt spoiled by her spacious (more than enough room to run) and beautiful yard. Plus, the regular updates she'd send cemented it. She's. The. Best.

If you are looking for pet care and are considering Jennifer and Dean, you should look no further. They have had many animals over the years and are truly pet people. Not only are they very caring and loving, but they are very good about sensing what the individual needs are for your pet. I have been to their house many times and witnessed first hand how they are with animals. They have attended dog training classes, they’ve nurtured and cared for sick pets of their own, administering fluids and medicine. They are incredibly responsible and reliable. Also, their property is heaven for dogs! Lot and lots of space to fetch and run around. If they have the availability to watch your dog, you and your pet are very lucky.

Jennifer is one of the most passionate dog lovers I know! She's worked hard to educate herself about dog behavior and training and is a passionate advocate of shelter dogs. Jenn is also fortunate enough to live in an amazing fully enclosed mini-forest within Los Angeles. Her property is very large, fully enclosed with high fences and is a little piece of paradise for any dog lucky enough to stay there. Give her a try. Your dog will thank you!

I have known Jennifer for over 10 years. Jen is one of those magical people that animals just love!!! Jen has a gentle demeanor and she's a woman who knows how to lovingly be the Alpha in the pack! I trust Jen with my dog Jemma because I know Jen is under the care of someone who cares about her happiness and safety! I can highly recommend Jennifer as your dog's, DogVacay mommy!

We are so incredibly lucky to have found Jenn and Dean. They are amazing with our baby and their property is puppy heaven! Highly recommended.
Jenn & Dean took really great care of our dog, Terra. They kept us well informed of how our little girl was doing. They cared and loved her as if she was their own dog. Their place has lots of room to roam and a warm cozy place to rest. We totally recommend Jenn & Dean, and Terra will definitely
be coming back for her next vacay away from home! Thank you Jenn & Dean!
They were wonderful pet sitters! Their house and yard were ideal for taking care of dogs. Bunsen, who is a pretty shy dog, also took to Jen and Dean really well. I know he'll miss them.
Our pup could not have had a better time with Jennifer, a true home away from home. She loved the big yard and all the attention. We loved to hear of all the fun in daily updates with pictures and videos. Thank you for now- we will be back next we need to travel.
I seriously cannot believe my good fortune in finding Jenn & Dean to take care of our pups when we are out of town. They are both fantastic, caring people with a deep love for animals. I instantly liked them, and fell in love with their beautiful house and massive yard; so much so that I envied my dogs a bit for their stay there. Our super shy new rescue pup warmed up to them faster that she has warmed up to anyone else, which was a great relief. Our other pup had a great time chasing squirrels around their huge lot, too. They are very flexible and accommodating, and great communicators. I truly can't recommend them more highly.
This was Yoshi's very first dogvacay and I know he enjoyed himself greatly! Jenn sent regular updates with videos of Yoshi having so much fun. He enjoyed running around and exploring their yard which was essentially a paradise for him. I will definitely contact Jenn and her husband again the next time I will have to go out of town. After watching the first video of Yoshi playing we had peace of mind for the rest of our trip.
