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, a silly little parakeet, Chicken Nugget and my daughter’s feline side-kick, Misery.
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 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 this 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. My search for a professional dog walking company that I would like to work for turned up…zero. 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!

(Pet Care Specialist)
Jasmine H pet care specialist 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! 🙂

Christine M. pet care specialist Hi! My name is Christine and I’ve been married to my hunny since 2003. We have two hilarious boys that constantly make me laugh, and two lovable pit bull mixes who think they are lap dogs. Haha! I have always been a HUGE animal lover and as a little girl I would bring home lost dogs, cats, and even an injured dove who I nursed back to health. Now as an adult that passion to care for animals has lead me to Bones N Belly Rubs where I get to meet and care for all sorts of dogs/pets. My inner 10 year old is in heaven! From the energetic puppy to the shy nervous dog, I love caring for all of them no matter the age, size, or breed! I look forward to meeting your fur babies and giving them the same amount of love and snuggles I give my own.

Growing up I had to convince my parents to get a dog but as soon as we got it they fell in love. I currently live in Norfolk, VA and I am a junior, majoring in exercise science at Old Dominion University. I have two cats who I love but love to drive me crazy. This is my first professional pet care job and I’m already loving it so much. I look forward to getting to know your little ones better!

I’ve been working with Bones n Belly Rubs since January 2017 and for the first time in a long time, I can honestly say I love my job!

Life wouldn’t be the same without my fur-kids. Animals are my life and I will treat and love your babies as I do mine. Hugs & wet kisses!

Michelle G. pet care specialist Hi, I’m Michelle. I live in Chesapeake and have for most of my life. I am a huge animal lover, especially dogs! Growing up I always had at least one dog. I have had cats, birds, lizards, fish, and hamsters. I just can’t get enough of the joy animals bring. My favorite thing to do is bring my mutt, Lincoln (he’s a momma’s boy), and my English Mastiff, Lola, to the dog park to run around. My husband and I treat these two pups as our own children, so they are extremely spoiled. I look forward to meeting all of your fur babies and spoiling them with love.

(Pet Care Specialist)
Samantha O. pet care specialist Hello there, I’m Samantha. I’m originally from Maine where the outdoors and animals were always a big part in my life! I’ve been working with this pack of great people since October, 2016. In the past I’ve worked on many farms and have seen and helped take care of a wide variety of farm animals and house pets. And I love them all the same! I’ve been living in Virginia since 2015 with my husband. We have a husky, Daryl and a German shepherd mix, Diesel. Daryl is just as sassy as you could imagine any husky could get – and I love it! Those wild ones are always the most fun to love! My other pup Diesel is about as lazy and laid back as any dog could ever be! The best of both worlds! I adore them and love them to the fullest. I absolutely love getting to meet and take care of so many great pups – and all animals alike!

Megan G. pet care specialist My name is Megan. I have been all over this great big world due to my husband’s military service and I love it! We met when we were eight years old and life is one big adventure for us. I can’t remember a time I didn’t have an animal in the house. I’ve had rabbits, dogs, cats, a bird, hamsters, and even a python! I cleaned horse stalls as a high schooler and would pet sit for neighbors and friends any time they needed. I love having the great outdoors as my office and your family pets are the best co-workers! I look forward to my job every day and I always treat the animals I care for as if they’re my own.
