Denali loved Jen! She was a very happy pup when we picked her up! Jen sent frequent updates, was easy to communicate with and responded quickly to any questions we had. We will certainly ask Jen to watch Denali again!

Jen took great care of Harriet! From the moment we stopped for our meet and greet to when we picked her up, Harriet seemed comfortable and at ease! Jen was great with communicating with us too while we were gone. We would definitely have Harriet stay with her again!

Jen is amazing! Our dogs love her and going to her place. She takes care of each of them as if they were her own. Jen is a very caring, wonderful person who has a great amount of experience with all kinds of dogs. I trust her entirely.

Quiet home full of love & snuggles!

**We just moved and home photos need to be updated. We no longer have a fenced yard, but plan to build one in the spring. Thanks for bearing with us during this transition!**

I've had my own dog daycare since the summer of 2013 and currently work as a nurse! I've had 18+ years of experience with dogs - owner, sitter, and pet therapy and love dogs. I enjoy yoga, thrift shopping, gardening, and ...

What Jen would like to know about your dog

It is important to me to know routine and behaviors of your dog so I can give them the best stay. The more information, the better! This creates comfort and typically puts the dog at ease more quickly and allows them to enjoy their time at daycare.

**My pups do best with smaller and low energy/older dogs. Teddy has vision limitations and likes when his space is respected, by both humans and dogs. Due to hearing loss, Keegan has become sensitive to barking and high pithed sounds. Some barking (at doorbell, meal time, etc.) is fine (they’re dogs after all!); it’s more vocal dogs that bark while I’m away that send him into a state of distress.**

I specialize in taking care of seniors, rescue dogs, and pups with special needs.

When Jen watches your pet

Cuddling. Netflix. Walks. More snuggling. I live near Minnehaha Falls and Lake Nokomis. Currently, I'm not usually gone more than 6-8 hours at a time.
