What our clients say about us


cat and dog sitting

We went from having zero to 4 pets in a year and I researched very carefully who I would entrust their care to. I narrowed it down and contacted Bones and Belly Rubs for an initial interview. Jenny responded immediately and I believe we met with her and coworker, Mandy, within just a few days. They set my mind at ease that day and have been taking care of my pups and kitties since. I love how they leave little notes after each visit letting me know what the animals did and what their mood was like. These are great

We love Jenny & her crew. We’ve used them for several years, for weekly dog walking (and we have two over 100lbs and a 65lb husky – all girls) and when we go out of town. BNBR makes me feel safe because they will make the house look like some one is home.

I would strongly recommend their services to anyone who adores their animal. Listed below are a few reasons I strongly endorse the services provided by the caring staff at Bones N Belly Rubs! First, they know Lucy. Her likes, dislikes, quirks, habits, behaviors, etc. How do I know??? They leave me detailed messages or their visits! Actually, I look forward to the notes when I get home to see what Lucy and
