About Jessica

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you've ever struggled with what to do with your dog(s) while you are on vacation, I can help you solve that problem.

As a mom to 3 fur-kids, I have learned that dogs tend to feel more comfortable when they can stay, sleep, eat, and play at their own home. So when we go on vacation, we almost always have someone stay at our house with them. It makes the trips less stressful for everyone, and it's why I wanted to become a sitter!

My husband and I have three great rescue dogs, but currently live in a townhouse in the Reston area, so I am unable to host dogs in our home.

I do work an "regular" 9-5 office job, but am granted some flexibility with my schedule, and have the ability to work remotely if your pup needs more attention. However, I am a firm believer that long walks, and tired pups make for happy dogs, so while I am with your dog(s) they will get plenty of walks and love while you're away. Oh and don't worry, you'll get updates as often as you would like!

My husband and I were able to fully enjoy our trip without worrying about our little ones at home. We've had so many uneasy experiences in the past with them going to kennels or someone else's home. We had no doubt in our minds that Jessica would take such great care of them and she did! She was very thorough in understanding their needs and quirks. She consistently sent updates and even wrote up a summary for us about her visit. She took them on long walks and they rewarded her with bedtime snuggles. I would highly recommend Jessica to others and look forward to her dog sitting for us in the future!

Jessica, You are so good with our dogs. I can completely relax when I am away,! Thank you, Lynn
Fabulous as always! Thanks so much
Jessica did an awesome job taking care of our dogs. She is pleasant, reliable and professional. Love her. Lynn
She is the ONLY person I trust to watch my babies. She is the ONLY reason I can relax on vacation. I don't know what I would do without her. She is the best. One of my dogs is VERY picky about who he likes. He loves her. When I first emailed her years ago and described my special boy she didn't have issues about meeting him. Seriously, if it wasn't for Jessica my family could never go away on vacation. She is the best.

Jessica was wonderful as always. Can't recommend her highly enough.
I hate giving her excellent reviews because then others might try to book her when I need her. She is amazing. Her prices are way too low. Her photo updates are adorable. My three very large and insane dogs love her. My cat likes her too. No one can ever book her over Thanksgiving. She will always be at my house that week.

When we got home our pup and his kittens all started chanting, "Jessica! Jessica! Jessica!" She even shoveled our walk and driveway. Need I say more?
Jessica as always did a great job, Thanks. Lynn
Jessica was AMAZING as always. I never for a second worry about my 3 dogs, 2 cats or house when Jessica is there.
Amazing as always!
Jessica is so good I think my dog has as much fun on vacation as I do!
Jessica is the only reason we were able to take a vacation with peace of mind. She treated our dogs as if they were her own, and kept us connected via cute pics and text messages. We feel very blessed to have found Jessica and are so grateful to her for taking such great care of our sweet pups. She is thoughtful and both Percy and Molly adore her!!!

Wish there were more stars to give Jessica. Our pup and kitties love her! She has stayed with them twice and we hope she will always stay with them when we have to be away.
My dog always looks forward to having Jessica pamper her in our house.
Amazing as always!!! I plan all my vacations around Jessica's schedule. She is the only one I trust with my babies.
Jessica did an amazing job taking care of 3 pups in our house while we were gone for a long weekend! 3 dogs is a lot to handle, especially when they all have weird quirks, but she did a really great job They were as happy as can be when we got home and the best part is we didn't have to get them readjusted to their schedules like you have to do when you send them somewhere else while you are out of town! She kept us updated and informed on what they were doing daily and left us a great note with more details for when we arrived home. She is trustworthy and will definitely treat your animals well!

Jessica did a great job again. I always feel so relaxed when she takes care of our dogs. Thanks a whole lot. Lynn
Jessica always takes great care of Snowy, an active dog who keeps her running.
Wonderful is the only thing to say about Jessica. She stayed at our home and watched not only our Bernise Mtn Dog, but also 4 cats. Our pup fell for her at the meet-n-greet and was happy to see her at the second meet. Jessica sent us one or more updates a day and dropped/picked up our pup from daycare when she needed to go to her office for a full day. All the babies were happy and we'll taken care of. Wonderful!

As always Jessica was wonderful going above and beyond to take great care of my dog and keeping me up to date with photos to show how much fun they were having!
Jessica did a great job again for us and our 4 dogs. We love her and will be having her take care of our dogs again. Lynn
Once again Jessica was amazing! We left her with our three dogs and one cat. We were on a cruise so we were totally out of touch. I didn't worry for one second. I knew they would be well taken care of the entire time we were gone. When I got home I had a wonderful report waiting for me.

She does not charge enough money. She needs to double if not triple her rate. In the past I paid sitters almost four times what she charges. I sent a letter to dogvacay telling them they need to add in a tip section or additional payment section. Since that hasn't been added yet I am just going to have to email her a gift card.

Jessica did a great job again! We know that when our dogs are in Jessica's great, they migth as well be with us. Thanks.
Jessica was amazing! It was only for one night but all my babies were spoiled rotten!!
Thanks again Jessica. The dogs had a great time with you. Lynn
Jessica did a great job as always. We know our dogs are well taken care of when they are with her.
Jessica is a great, professional pet sitter. We met her just a few days before leaving on vacation but immediately knew she was the perfect fit. Our rambunctious golden retriever immediately fell in love with her and we were set at ease by her clear love for dogs and understanding of a pet owner’s needs and concerns. She asked all the right questions, was organized and completely reliable.

Jessica was terrific! She took wonderful care of Snowy, my energetic Husky mix, who I think had as much fun on my vacation as I did. I highly recommend her!
Pax had another wonderful visit with you Jessica, thank you for the updates, communication, and patience with our busy schedule! We can't thank you enough!
Jessica is amazing! We just moved back to Va and left our old dog sitter in MD. We were very nervous about finding a new one. We have 3 dogs - two are big lovable oafs, but the third one was a stray for the first few years of his life and abused. He does not trust easily. Well Jessica was wonderful. She came over 4 times in the past few months to get to know each of the dogs (and our 2 cats). Each visit she spent time getting to know the dogs and playing with them. We went out of town this weekend as a test for a longer trip this fall. We couldn't be happier! She texted us picture updates of all the animals everyday. Our scared little boy was nervous the first day but he warmed up to her quickly.

One of our dogs is recovering from surgery and can not jump up on the bed yet. Jessica was nice enough to sleep on the couch with our doggies. She really is an animal lover.

I was tempted to give her an awful review so no one would ever book her and I could have her all myself.

Tomorrow I will be filling out two more requests for dog sitting with Jessica.

Excellent as always!!
As always, Jessica was very professional and took wonderful care of our pups.
Jessica was our first experience with dogvacay and she was absolutely wonderful. She initially wasn't fully available the last day of our request, but then adjusted her schedule to ensure that Pax would be cared for the entire time we were away. We also didn't realize we were almost out of food until just before we left, we ordered more and she picked it up for us (kept the receipt, even cut out the upc code in case we needed it!).
She texted, emailed, sent pictures, and left notes. Basically, she is amazing. Pax loved her and we felt so comfortable knowing he was in her care. We hope to use her regularly if her schedule allows :)

Thanks Jessica, for being so easy to work with! We always enjoy the texts and photos when we are out of town. Brody and Oliver were happy to see us, but we could tell they were well taken care of. Thanks for leaving a note behind, and also for bringing in the mail and newspaper!

This was our first time using dogvacay and are so pleased to have established a relationship with Jessica. She arrived promptly for our meet and greet, and displayed a professional, competent, friendly manner, immediately evoking a sense that our two dogs and house would be in good hands while we were away. We communicated easily via email and texting before and during our trip. The dogs were relaxed and happy when we arrived home!! Thanks Jessica!

Jessica did a great job taking care of our dogs. She send us some great photos and kept us up to date via email. Thanks Jessica! Lynn
Jessica is a very professional dog sitter who has a significant amount of pet knowledge. Our dogs were excited from the minute they met her... her daily picture text messages, daily log when we returned, and the fact that she took care of them as her own was pawsome!
She is very trustworthy and has a kind heart for all animals.
The only problem we have now is that she spoiled our dogs SO much with daily walks and cuddle session that now they seem a little disappointed with the old routine.

Having never used a pet sitter before, my wife and I were nervous about leaving our dogs as they can be a handful (both strong and energetic), but Jessica was absolutely wonderful with them and we would use her again in a second. Jessica came over before to meet them and asked us questions that we had not even considered ourselves. While we were away she kept us up to date with pix messages and when we got home we found she had left us an entertaining log of all the events that happened while we were away….and we arrived home to two very calm, happy dogs. We are so happy to have found someone we can trust with our dogs and who takes wonderful care of them while we are away. We would use her again in a second and recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter.

Amazing! Jessica did a fantastic job with our dog. She sent photos and updates from all of their adventures, and we were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that Jake was in good hands. Would definitely recommend. Thanks, Jessica!
