About Jennifer

I've been caring for and loving dogs for years, small and large breeds, young and old. My husband and I have raised two gorgeous labradors. The oldest (Jameel), and the mother of our younger one, has recently passed away, so we are always looking for friends to keep Maleah company. Maleah is 11 years old and extremely gentle as well as very sociable with other dogs.

I value the quality of care, so your dog's stay/walk has my complete attention and you will get updates often...even if it is just a few photos of your loved one snoozing on the sofa. 😉 I work from home (part-time) as a freelancer. This usually means I am writing/editing from the sofa with my doggie friends surrounding me. And my hours are very flexible. My husband is often working from home as well, so there are usually two bipedal creatures to play or cuddle with. I have experience with puppies, training, veterinarian visits, administering oral medications, bathing, ear cleaning and ear treatment, brushing, nail trimming. If something is not listed here, please do not hesitate to ask me about it!

I know how worrisome it can be to leave your precious pooch(es) in the hands of others, so I am extremely mindful of your instructions and concerns. YOU know your friend the best, so I will listen and try to continue the normal routine that makes them so comfortable and at home with you.

    Great sitter! Jennifer is calm and patient, keeps you updated regularly and is more than happy to follow your instructions. Ben loved his stay and he came home to sleep for the rest of the night. Definitely recommend and definitely will use again if needed! :)

    Our two girls stayed with Jen and Derek for two weeks and apparently had a great time. Many thanks for everything, we will definitely use Jen's and Derek's service (if they are keen to do this too :D) again.

    Jennifer is the best! Calm and unflappable even when dealing with an unwell dog in the middle of the night and an unexpected visit to the vets! Kira loves staying here and always comes home happy and relaxed.

    Thanks, Rosie! Hope Kira is happy and well. She is a lovely girl and I miss her excited barky welcome homes and nuzzles! :)
