The Bones N Belly Rubs Story
Bones N Belly Rubs was started in March of 2010 by owner Jenny Johnson. Jenny has spent her life caring for animals personally and professionally. She has been a volunteer, rescuer and was working in an animal hospital when she began dog walking part-time. It didn’t take long before it became her full-time job. After settling in Virginia Beach January 2010 she was unable to find a professional pet sitting company she wanted to work for, so with that Bones N Belly Rubs was born. BNBR has grown from a one-woman operation to a team of dedicated pet professionals which include Jenny’s husband Matt Johnson (Co-owner) and daughter Grace Marshall (Pet Sitter/Office Manager). Matt joined the BNBR team in 2014. Originally from Brisbane, Australia Matt has experience with animals of all kinds. Down under Matt has cared for dogs, fish, birds and more reptiles than one could count. Being Jenny’s daughter Grace grew up surrounded by animals and with Bones N Belly Rubs. This made her a perfect fit when she joined the family business fulltime in 2016.
