What our clients say about us
Only the best for you and your dog… Do you know the happy feeling of “Yeahhh- going away for the weekend or for a long vacation?!”, and realize….what to do about our dog? Do we bring her, put her in kennel or should we leave her at home? Our 2 year old Bull Terrier, Tikva did not have an easy start in life. We were her 4th family even before she was 7 months old, so having her cared for in her own known, safe environment was a must for us. Our wonderful and very professional dog trainer recommended Bones… N Belly Rubs, whom she had used for her own dogs. Now we are returning clients to Bones N Belly Rubs 2-3 times a year. Tikva loves the dog sitters, our neighbors report back and we have confidence in Jenny’s relaxed but highly qualified way of making sure that dog sitters and dogs are carefully matched. From the daily notes from the sitters we can monitor the visits and know our instructions have been followed. Even though we would like to take Tikva with us, it is not always possible, we are confident that is works best for Tikva to stay home when we are gone. Is it expensive? Well a holiday is rarely free, but the service we have got from Bones N Belly Rubs, has been worth every penny. Last but not least- Jenny is very flexible, so if our travel plans change or are delayed- or weather conditions get crazy- she is always very careful to make sure that our dog is in good hands and it is arranged to our satisfaction in no time. Bones N Belly Rubs is a strong team of committed dog loving people whom we feel we can count on, therefore we only give our best recommendations.” “Tikva”

First of all, let me start off by saying that I don’t trust my dogs with just anyone. All three of them are high maintenance. I have two that are on raw diets, have allergies, need medication and that are also quite stubborn I also have one that just turned 17 yrs old and is deaf, blind and has dementia. You can only imagine what all that entails. We usually would plan trips around when and if a family member could watch them. When we had a Christmas trip planned, and no one was available, I started interviewing pet sitters.… I came close to cancelling my trip, but then I met with Jenny from Bones N Belly Rubs. As soon as she walked in, it was like she had known them forever. My dogs loved her. She didn’t blink an eye at their diet, medications, or age issues, and I was sold. Jenny and her team did a wonderful job of taking care of my “kids”. She also brought my mail and paper in and had everything organized upon our return. Upon our return, the pups ran to the window several times to look for her at the scheduled times and even sat and watched the door at bedtime. I was so happy that they loved Jenny and her team. I immediately booked her again for our next trip in the spring. I even feel like we can do spur of the moment getaways and feel confident the pups are in great hands! Thank you Jenny – and Bones N Belly Rubs – you are the best!!” “Bucky, Lulu & Harper”
My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the Bones and Belly Rubs team! We always have such peace of mind knowing our dog, Joe, is being taken care of while we’re out of town. Their services are always available when we need them, even on short notice. Joe always plenty of exercise, love, and attention. We always return home with a happy dog!”
