About Teresa

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Does your pet need to hide from the pupperazzi? We have the perfect hideout in South Tampa. Very quiet, secluded, and relaxing! We are south of Gandy (SOG) off MacDill Avenue. We have two boys 10 & 8 and they love dogs! We have a fenced-in yard and are very close to Ballast Point Park. We do have a cat, Grayson, that is about two years old. We also are willing to host cats since we already have one, he could use someone to play with. Grayson usually gets along with dogs, unless they are puppies and want to chase him. If we need to, we can secure Grayson in the laundry room. We have an in-ground pool that is screened in. Our family has a lot of love to give and we would love to host your pet in our home!

Zoe was so excited when she knew she was going back to Teresa's house! She loves it there and I feel so relieved knowing her family enjoys her time there and takes such good care of her!
Teresa treated zoe like her own dog and I loved the pictures she sent with zoe so happy! I will definitely send zoe here for another dog vacay! Thanks so much!
Teresa was great - worked with me to make a smooth handoff and pickup during a very busy time (my husband's military retirement). Her mother-in-law fell in love with my little rescue rat terrier. All went great, wouldn't hesitate to have my pups stay with Teresa again!

Teresa was very sweet and accommodating! I never worried about my pup sia in her care.
Great experience with a great family! Very accommodating, flexible and able to take good care of our senior "pup" :-)
Petey was well cared for and had fun playing with her 2 sons!
First off this was my FIRST time leaving my baby Kitty with someone, and I was really nervous. I have an extremely timid dog, and she does not get comfortable in many environments.

Immediately when we entered into Teresa's home, her boys and she welcomed my baby with open arms, and were very loving to her. Kitty jumped out of my arms and began to run around the house, and when I felt her body she was totally calm.

Leaving her was hard, but she was not that sad about me leaving. Teresa does not have a house, she has a home, and there is plenty of love present in the air. Teresa and her whole family showed Kitty so much love, and when I got a little nervous thinking about Kitty, I received pictures and texts about how my baby was doing.

I have friends that I rarely get to visit in Tampa because of the accommodations for Kitty. Teresa is definitely will be my go-to for Kitty when I visit Tampa, and her home is a a nice, quiet, sweet haven.

Kitty was calm when I picked her up, and Teresa was nothing but courteous to both of us. She tended to the emotional concerns that I about Kitty, and also dietary. She was knowledgable about changes in her stool, and the amount of food she ate during her visit. That is type of care I need for my baby, and Teresa provided it for me.

I will definitely be a returning customer, and if you are in the Tampa area and need a dog sitter, Teresa should definitely be your first pick.

Thank you so much Teresa and family.
