I cannot give Jennifer enough praises! Literally 1 hour after I contacted her, she was at my house hanging with my pup. She specializes in puppy training so it was the perfect fit. Friendly, passionate, positive, upbeat and informative. As a first time dog owner, I have a lot to learn and Jennifer was extremely helpful. Not to mention, Maverick really seemed to like and respond to her positvely. Thank you!!!

UNRELIABLE. Unprofessional experience—initially I was super happy to have Jennifer watching and dropping in on our dog. Every time I reached out regarding availability however, Jennifer was extremely slow to reply. Often she wouldn't reply until I nudged her 12+ hours later or the following day. Every single time. I still reached out to book her because she was the only walker we'd met and Ziggy loves her. I can no longer vouch for ...

It all started with Jennifer as a dream come true, but I unfortunately I can not recommend her. Based on her unprofessionalism. I met her in May 2017, to house sit for my 9 lb Yorkie which was going to be frequent due to my work travel schedule. Everything was great she had 11 house sitting stays with me to date, until she started explaining she was transitioning to full time pet trainer (thru Karma ...

Positive Reinforcement Trainer

Hi there, I'm Jen! Here's some "get to know me" info:

CONTEXT
Three years ago I graduated from UCLA and moved into a pet-free apartment (mid-LA area). I really missed the love, companionship and joy of having animals around and joined Rover to fill my spare time. Then and still, I couldn't imagine anything more worthwhile and wholly rewarding. I loving the Rover pets and people I work with and I am so glad for ...

What Jennifer would like to know about your dog

As long as Pupper proves a non-violent disposition with me, I'm willing to sit. (Puppy biting not included - puppy biting does not threaten me. Teething's so cute. Send those puppy bites my way. Pretty please?)

I've listed some questions that are usually covered during our free "meet and greet." Information such as that listed below is necessary in order for me to provide the most beneficial care possible. For reference, I often discuss the following (and much more):
1. How is your pup with other animals (particularly other dogs we may encounter on walks) and people?
2. Does your dog have any special dietary restrictions/allergies/medications/health concerns?
3. Is your dog fully vaccinated?
4. I have my own for backup, but what emergency procedure(s) would you prefer me to abide by, just in case (emergency vet/phone number, etc)?

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise

When Jennifer watches your pet

In my care, pets often receive more visitation time than the standard half hour (if my schedule allows) simply because I love their company. You will never be charged for this "overtime" and if you prefer me to stick to half an hour, I will be happy to comply.

Walks:
On a walk with me, Rover dogs enjoy sunny strolls or jogs through the surrounding neighborhood with stops along the way to sniff, play and/or make friends (as tolerated). Additionally, I always bring toys and treats on our adventures to ensure maximum fun. I should also forewarn you... we will absolutely conspire to seek and destroy the most perfectly crunchy leaf. Chomp!! (*imagine: pup and I giggle evilly then annihilate another innocent leaf*)

Drop Ins:
During "drop ins" we will take care of business first (potty/food/medication/etc) unless otherwise requested. Then, we usually play inside (as allowed) or outside (as allowed) and we will absolutely snuggle. Sometimes we'll play fetch or learn commands... (jump as "wingardium leviosa" anyone?) If and when snoozapalooza finally sets in, pets will find themselves snuggled up on a willing human pillow.

"House sits" combine the benefits of "walks" and "drop ins," with the addition of and any/all of the following options:
-Overnight visitation (from dusk to dawn)
-Live in (full overnight and some daytime occupancy - to be agreed upon before visit)
-Constant occupancy (full 24 hour supervision for house and pets)
During "house sits" we may go to the park or go for an extra walk if it's a nice day. Feel free to make special requests for these visits and I will gladly consider.
