Pet Sitting

Jenny is a genuine person who loves working with animals. Our puppy is so excited to see her! She is kind and patient and has offered some great suggestions for our training after walking our energetic 6 month old.

Jenny has been our dog walker for a few months now and we couldn’t be happier. She is very responsive to our schedule and needs and she appears to genuinely enjoy spending time with our pup. She even gifted us a holiday picture of him out on his walk! Our dog loves her and she takes a burden off of our shoulders, which is such a gift. Thanks, Jenny!

We've been blessed with Jenny who accepted to catsit on short notice. She administered medication, was punctual, loving to our cats and even sent us pictures and spent valuable time with them. Now we know someone reliable and loving to take care of our kitties when we are away.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Baby and animal CPR course. Animal fist aid course, horseback riding lessons 5 years. You tube dog training videos. I think my best knowledge came from the past 12 years of professional pet care experience. I am learning about animals every day. I love it! Whenever confronted with a problem or situation I cannot resolve, I research until I find the answer and then work hard and patiently to resolve the situation.
