Description:

Traveling can be a stressful experience for both owners and pets, so my goal is to make petcare one less thing to worry about!

Regarding my petsitting philosophy, I think dogs are pack animals and social creatures, so that's how things are run during a petsit. It's common to watch dogs of differing ages and/or sizes at the same time. A stay could be described as a small scale dog daycare with walks/hikes/fieldtrips and an overnight attendant.

About Jen T.:

I'm a physician that recently left the medical field and am caring for people's fur babies full-time while contemplating what I want to be when I grow up. I have almost a decade of experience with dog rescue, primarily with Doberman Pinschers and small breed dogs (toy fox and rat terriers, italian greyhounds, miniature pinschers and chinese cresteds). I've cared for and fostered dogs of all ages from newborn puppies to senior dogs, 2 lbs to 100 lbs, some from puppy mills or with anxiety, medical or other issues. I also have experience with obedience and behavioral dog training, having fostered and owned a number of rescued Doberman Pinschers and Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

**currently booking very few new clients but there are plenty of great rover sitters available!

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

I've been a dog owner for almost 10 years and had fish, cats and small animals growing up.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

The only potential dealbreaker may be if a visiting dog is dog aggressive or had a kill-the-cat level prey drive. My definition of dog aggressive is an altercation that results breaking the skin and sending another animal (or person) to the emergency room. I am able to handle reactive or anxious dogs and their usual doggie communication/body language. Otherwise, it's helpful to know if your dog has any other issues or quirks so I can try to prevent or avoid those situations if possible.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes. I've cared for dogs with conditions including diabetes, allergies, post surgical, paralysis, terminal illness, etc. There's no extra charge for related care as I realize this is one of the reasons owners may choose to book with rover.com rather than sending their pups to a boarding facility.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

I am currently petsitting fulltime; the amount of time spent with each dog depends on the schedule and the dog's needs. Some dogs are never or rarely alone during a stay.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

There is a fenced 30' x 5' patio which can be used for quick relief, but walks are still the preferred way to get business done!

Where will my dog sleep?

Crated, run of the house (which usually means couch or dog bed in the living room or in the bedroom), or in bed, whichever he/she and/or the owner prefers.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

I have housesits and dog walks in various parts of Seattle so your dog is welcome to ride along! Most commonly served areas include downtown, capitol hill, belltown and lower queen anne.

Jen T.'s Experience:

The rate for pet/housesitting applies within a 1 mile radius of my address (98101) with a $1/day/mile rate increase for locations further away (gas/bus money). Each additional dog is an extra $10 per day. Home sitting includes at least 3 daily visits with no time limit on the visits, we get done what needs to be done and will spend as much time as possible with them. I will sometimes bring a (friendly, housetrained) visiting dog with me to housesits so let me know if your dog is territorial or if you would prefer not to have a visiting dog in your house. Also please specify in your request if you're looking for someone to make home visits or if you'd like for someone to stay over. Thanks!

(e.g., water plants, bring in the mail)?

Jen always goes above and beyond and works around our schedule! I couldn't ask for a better dog sitter!
This was a return booking with Jen. She was fabulous as always.
Jen was wonderful, accommodating, and the dogs seemed to have a blast with her. We definitely plan on trying to hire her again in the future.
Jen is my go-to for all my dog sitting needs. She continues to amaze me with her communication, consistency and flexibility. There is no one else I'd rather leave my pups with!
As always, Gus was well loved while I was away. Thanks Jen!
We went out camping in the Olympic Peninsula and we couldn't bring our dog, but we knew he'd be in great hands with Jen. Again, he came back tired out from playing with his furry buddies. Always such a pleasure and so easy to work with, thanks Jen!
Jen was so incredibly easy to work with. She is very responsive, booked a last minute stay with me for a holiday weekend, and was totally flexible in terms of meeting times, drop off and pick up. She sent cute pictures of my pup during the trip, which is really important to me. Will book again and again!!
Once again Jen and Matt were phenomenal. Their flexibility in drop offs and pick ups made it really easy to start and end our trip. Jen is always great taking photos of our dogs stay, and providing them during or after the visit. Our dog comes home happy and healthy!

We love Jen. She is prompt, reliable, and responsible and I can only say good things. She not only takes care of all of the pugs special needs and takes their proclivities into consideration, but does necessary medications and diets... everything!

I never have to worry about Frank and Bean when they are with Jen!, and I am a worrier!

Testimonials

SL C. November 6
Jen is a responsible and efficient person. When she tells you she is going to do something, she does it. She has on a daily basis taken care of my hyper, howling Jack Russel, Hopper. Jen is an animal person; she fosters dogs and actively supports dog rescue groups. There are few people that I feel comfortable giving them a key to my house and letting them take care of my escaping dog. Under Jen's watch, Hopper never went missing; I cannot say the same for others. He is quite a handful. Jen is someone I trust and I would highly recommend. (Collapse)
Scott S. February 20
Jen is exceptional with dogs, to echo all of her other testimonials. Within minutes of our meet-and -greet, we felt completely comfortable leaving Carmen Dog in her hands. She knew exactly what to ask, as she has been working with dogs for a long time and has her own. Her disposition puts dog parents at ease, which is not an easy feat. Carmen Dog took to her immediately. Jen and Carmen had a great weekend, going on many walks and even field trips.We think Carmen was sort bummed that we came home instead of Jen. ;) We would ask Jen to care for Carmen again in a heart beat. She has our highest recommendation. (Collapse)
