About Jen

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I have my dog who we take out for walks and cuddles with us. We have a lot of love in our home. Doggy door, toys and treats (of course, if approved by you).

I have always loved all animals but dogs have a special place in my heart. I used to volunteer at a dog shelter in Denver (Dumb Friends League) and I bonded with all dogs. Even when I was told they weren't people dogs, they loved me.

Rex, my dog, is also a part of the family. There is not a family picture without him. He went to day care for a long time so he is used to be around other dogs. He likes to play but can also relax if the dog doesn't respond.

Why I love dog sitting
I have always been a dog lover. I have volunteered in shelters and am always welcome to cuddling a doggy!

About my yard
We have a huge yard so a lot of room to run around!

I'm always nervous when I leave my two fur babies at a new place, but Jen V. was great. Fred and Gigi got along great with her little Rex and Jen sent lots of pictures showing Fred and Gigi hanging out and relaxing. I will definitely use her again.
Highly recommended for dog sitting. My Dog Star was well taken care of while she staying with Jen and her family for 5 nights. Their house was clean and they provided a pet friendly environment. Jen kept in touch while we were away, she made sure she communicated with us on how our dog was doing.
I would definitely be taking my dog to their home for future stays.
I needed a last minute dog sitter as I was taking a day trip up to wine country. Jen was quick to respond to my request and super welcoming when Waldo arrived. She was in constant communication during the day so I knew Waldo was doing well. Definitely recommend Jen if you need a dog sitting service.
It's our first time to use Dogvacay to find a dog sitter and we didn't expect to find a good one especially on a very short notice! (Less than 24 hours notice.) Jen turned out to be a great sitter and our dog seemed to be comfortable and well when we picked him up! Our dog usually doesn't sit well with other dogs but surprisingly he got along with Jen's very cute dog. I definitely recommend her service and I personally consider her to sit my dog again!
Jen and her family are wonderful hosts! Highly communicative and friendly, we didn't have any concerns about our dog Franklin being well cared for. Jen sent lots of pictures and updates and was completely comfortable letting Franklin snuggle up on the furniture like he does at home. We will absolutely book with her again.
Our dog had a great time at Jen's place! Jen sent updates and photos, which was really nice. We would definitely book with her again.
Jen was so friendly and accommodating with my little senior Yorkie. He hasn't had a lot of overnights with strangers and other dogs, and Jen took special care to be sure he had space for his bed and slept with him. She sent photos to help me see how he was doing and really went out of her way to drop him off when it was time to come home. I would say she is the most responsive pet sitter I've worked with to date! Thank you, Jen! We will book you again.
I would book another stay with Jen, without hesitation. She's friendly, easy to reach, and took our dogs on short notice. My dogs absolutely had a blast! my two dogs didn't want to leave! When we got home, they were calm and ready to take a long nap (always a sign that they've had a great time). I'm sure that I will be booking another stay with Jen soon.
Jen took our pup on short notice after our regular dog sitter had to cancel. She was a real life saver! Our little guy came home rested and in high spirits - we appreciate the care and kindness he was shown at Jen's place. Thanks again!
Our experience with Jen and Shaun was great! Our dog Chloe had never stayed with anyone but family or friends but she was comfortable the instant we walked in the door! She and Rex greeted each other and went out into the yard to explore. The yard is a great set up for pets as is their home. They took care of our Chloe like we would have ourselves and Jen sent us pictures so we could see how Chloe was doing. Chloe looked so relaxed and "at home" We would definitely use DogVacay and specifically Jen and her family again!!
First time using Dogvacay and we are thrilled! Jen was wonderful and took great care of our little puppy. We received photos and updates throughout Casper's stay with Jen and he seemed so happy and content. We are extremely pleased with Jen and all she and her family did for us and our puppy!
Jen was great! She treated Spot wonderful and kept up on my crate training. Her house is clean and set up perfectly for dogs. Jen sent me text updates and always responded back quickly. I am super happy with my experience!
Puckett had a great time. Thanks
