Jenny Johnson owner Bones N Belly Rubs

Hi! My name is Jenny Johnson. I have been an animal lover my entire life and have been lucky enough over the years to have had many furry, feathered, finny and some scaly friends. Currently my pack at home includes: my 3 lovable dogs: Nellie, Rico and Brock, a Russian tortoise I call Ivan Drago, and 6 silly parakeets (Francine, Bill, Jim, Pam, Hank & Peggy).
I started Bones N Belly Rubs in March of 2010 because I could not imagine doing anything else. Throughout my life, I have had experience personally and professionally in animal care. I have been a volunteer & rescuer and I was working in an Animal Hospital when I began dog walking & pet sitting part-time. That was when I found my true calling, it didn’t take long before dog walking was my only “job”. I love to see those waggin’ tails when I walk through the door. It is a true joy. When I moved and settled for good, making Virginia Beach my home in January 2010 I knew I had to continue doing what I loved. When I searched for a professional dog walking company I found none that I would want to work for. This is more than just a business or a job for me, it is my passion. So with that, Bones N Belly Rubs was born!

Hi, my name is Matthew Johnson, I am from Brisbane, Australia. I love working with animals, back home I owned a pet shop and cared for over 200 reptiles, 2 birds, 3 dogs and lots of fish. Needless to say, I am an animal lover and enjoy the time I get to spend with them. I love meeting and caring for new dogs and am up for whatever challenges arise. I am also a master carpenter and build furniture for pets including reptile enclosure, wooden dog beds, cat litter hide boxes, dog ramps and more.

Oh hey there! My name is Jasmine and I’ve been working for Bones N Belly Rubs since December 2013. Taking care of animals is a passion of mine since I was a kid! All my life I grew up around a variety of animals. Everybody would to tell me my family was housing a zoo. I could never disagree because it was so true. If you name it, we had it. Hey! What can I say, the love for animals runs in the family! Currently, I have two little crazy mutts, a turtle, a ball python, and a crazy cat. So dealing with crazy pups and kitties are nothing new to me. I am especially excited to meet you and your furry family members! I’ll be sure to treat them as if they were my own and of course we would be great friends too! 🙂

Hi my name is Lori! I am an artist who loves to surround myself with doggies! I am a happy pet owner of a Yorkie and a beagle. They might as well be my kids, because they are seriously spoiled. My husband and I have also owned snakes in the past. All of my life my family has owned dogs and cats. I have also had experience with all sorts of breeds, thanks to my grandma’s pet daycare. I’m that person who sees dogs in public, gets really excited, and then asks if I can pet it. I can’t help it, dogs just hold a special place in my heart! I am so happy to have found Bones N Belly Rubs! I finally have a job that I can wake up and be excited to go to. I can’t wait to meet all of the fur babies!
