Jing, in Chinese medicine means “spirit” or “essence”. That’s the inspiration behind Jing! owner, Gini Chin’s approach to pet-sitting. Holistically connecting with your pet in ways that nourish its physical health and emotional well-being.

Gini has been connecting with animals in a Jing way since she was knee-high to the family St. Bernard. Her home was full of cats, dogs, chameleons, even snakes. So, Gini grew up surrounded by pets, training dogs and showing horses. And for the last two decades, she’s been rescuing boxers — Higgins, Rilla, Oscar, and now, Boulou.

We are compassionate and professional caregivers dedicated to your pet’s health, happiness and security. We can’t wait to meet you and your four-legged companions!

Gini attended the Northwest School of Animal Massage and is a nationally certified small animal acupressure practitioner. http://www.nbcaam.org/

She is a member of Pet Sitters International, is insured through Pet Sitters Associates and has completed pet first aid and CPR classes.

Now let’s go walking!
