Jen is absolutely amazing! She has watched our dog Barley several times and always does a fantastic job. Barley loves her, and she really goes above and beyond as a dog sitter. She stays in our home and we always come back to a clean house, with sheets and towels washed, a happy dog, and sometimes even some home-baked treats for us. Couldn't ask for anything more!

I have been using rover for a while and Jen really provided an over the top experience for Barkley and myself. Not only did she obviously spend a ton of time with Barkley, which is extremely important to me in a sitter, but she also made it fun for the both of them. By the end of the weekend, Barkley had done more sightseeing around Boston than I had and he was obviously having a ...

Jen went so far beyond what we could imagine a dog-sitter and house sitter would do. To start with, she took great care of our dogs. Second, the dog photos she sent were not just cute, she has a a real photographic eye and flare for composition. Third, there was a big snowstorm and she shoveled our drive without asking. Fourth, she not only washed the sheets and towels she used, she did our other ...

lots of free time for your dog!

I'm that person who goes to a friend's house only to spend time with their dog - I am completely obsessed with them. I will be their best friend and they will be mine. I would love to have a dog of my own, but can't fully commit to one because of school, so I figured Rover would be a perfect alternative for now :)!

I'm currently in school full time to become a nurse practitioner and ...

What Jen would like to know about your dog

I'd like to know if your dog is friendly with people and/or other dogs and whether they like to run/walk/just hang out. Also if they have any health concerns/quirks I should know about. I'm happy to tailor to any specific needs they may have. No breed preferences - I've never met a dog I didn't love.

When Jen watches your pet

I love being outside and regularly go running around Cambridge. I'm also happy to go on long walks! I can go to the park, or any local hiking.

Though I enjoy being active, I'm also delighted to sit at the park (there's always reading I need to catch up on), or simply provide my presence/companionship in any way. Also, is there anything better than rewatching episodes of The Office and cuddling on the couch with a dog?
