About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I have high standards for how I care for animals--I take my time at each visit to ensure all pets have their needs met to keep them happy and healthy. I double check everything including home care instructions. I also make sure to give pets lots of loving personal attention. Pet owners will receive updates about their pets' activities and well-being as frequently as they instruct at the consultation. Pet health and safety are the most important aspects of caring for someone else's best friend. Sure, I give them cuddles and talk to them, but the main objective is to keep them safe and be there for them in case of emergency. I review my Red Cross training frequently, carry a first aid kit, and have good common sense.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Funny you should ask! I just recently made a top 25 list for fun of reasons I love pet sitting more than any other career. Here are a few: 1. When I talk about work, it’s not complaining. I go on and on in the same manner, but nothing is negative. I’m surprised I have the need to talk about my day extensively when it’s all about the great time I had. 2. I spend time with animals! I open the door and someone is excited about going out for a walk and I feel the same way. Let’s go! That is the best feeling one can have at work, in my experience. 3. Sometimes I make a good human friend. Who knew? We can talk about all kinds of subjects that aren’t pets. 4. I help—sometimes more than I plan. I’m human in charge and the pets come first. That’s why we are here, with our thumbs and big brains. 5. Sometimes I get to be out in nature, like in Elysian park. Dogs are the best company on a hike. 6. I am 100% sure this line of work is ethical. If there are grey areas in pet sitting, I haven't found them.

    Jen looked after my new rescue cat Sox for about one year on and off. Anything from 2 to ten days at a time. She was professional, caring and the updates were a great comfort. Sox wanted to write something here too but typing skills are lacking! Thank you Jen, we miss you!

    I have used Jennifer Dunlay's services for my pet serveral times including her house sitting services. She is extremely professional in her house-sitting services and at the same time very caring for our German Shepherd, Deuce. I would highly recommend her.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
My advice would be to please allow enough time for a detailed consultation. This way a customer can get a good sense of the pet sitter, see how they interact with the pet, and go over all instructions carefully. It puts everyone's mind at ease. If possible (I know it's not always!) try not to wait until the day before you leave town to meet the sitter. So far it hasn't happened, but I always wonder what the customer would have done if they didn't want to choose me!
