Ginger was very friendly and helpful. She sent us pictures of our pups during our vacation and could tell the dogs were very happy and well taken care of. We highly recommend her.
After reading all the rave reviews we just knew Ginger would be the perfect person to care for our puppy. Within hours after dropping him off we received our first pic and update. We knew immediately that we would be able to relax and enjoy our vacation because he was in excellent care. We will definitely be using Ginger for all our babysitting needs!
I was so pleased with Ginger and the care my 2 Westies received while I was away. She sent me pictures every day at bedtime with little notes. I felt that they were in a warm loving environment and they had the company of her 2 Poodles. She has a lovely home and back yard where they could hang out. She was the best dog sitter I have ever had and we will continue to use her when i go out of town.
My puppy was very happy with Ginger. Lots of play time, and she always sent lot of pictures and updates. Very happy with our stay!
Great home away from home for our dog! Thanks Ginger.
Our 5 month old puppy was well taken care of. She came home nice and tired! Thanks so much Ginger, Reed and Kari.
Ginger was wonderful! Even with some issues getting to her home for pickup on time she was accommodating and helpful. Stella came home happy, clean, and well cared for. I would absolutely reccommend Ginger to anyone and would book again!
Ginger did an excellent job taking care of our 3 1/2 month old puppy, Biscuit, while I was in the hospital recovering from surgery. I appreciated that she would send pictures and updates while I was away. I will definitely be looking her up the next time we need a sitter in Anchorage!
We were gone for 9 days and it was our dogs first time away from home and Ginger was amazing!! She sent pictures and updates every day and our dog was so happy!! Lots of play, walks and love from Ginger kept our puppy happy!! Definitely recommend Ginger if you need a sitter!!
Our corgi, Lucy, had such a good time that she didn't want to leave. She went on walks, played with other dogs, and got her tummy rubbed. She was perturbed at first as we had never left her anywhere before. But within couple of days she acclimated. Ginger is very good with the dogs and sent us photos and texts every few days. The home is lovely and the dogs always had someone at home. It truly was a dog vacation for Lucy

Ginger also took care of our two cockatiels who did great. We will book a DogVacay with ginger again. Thank you, Ginger!
If you want your beloved fur family member to be treated with as much love and care as you provide then you absolutely must book with Ginger. Our Kamea was taken for daily exercise, she learned to get along with other Vacay guests and hosts Shoshi and Lucky. Ginger is now the top choice for Kamea.
Ginger was amazing! I truly felt like my dogs had their own incredible vacation while we were away. Ginger sent pictures and updates daily and I never once worried if my boys were being loved and taken care of. I will use Ginger over anyone else every time. Ginger graciously let us extend our dogs' 18 day by two extra days due to a cancelled flight. On top of that, she even drove my fur babies to me the day after we returned to make things easier on us. I can't say enough great things about Ginger!
Ginger was amazing! From all the pictures she sent me of my dog over the weekend, I'm seriously wondering if he had a better vacation than I did! She's a real dog person, not just someone who doesn't mind then around. Plus, she's was wonderfully accommodating when my car wouldn't start on my way home. I highly recommend her!
We used Ginger as our pet-sitter for a two week period in November 2016, and would recommend her without hesitation. (Normally, we would seek out a family member to watch our pet (we do not care for kennels and the idea of our pet being in a cage or in a cement-floored dog run for the majority of the day), but none of the family members were available during the time we would be traveling.)

From the moment we sought a pet-sitter until the time when we retrieved our four-legged family member after our trip, we had nothing but positive, reassured interactions with Ginger! She promptly (within an hour) responded when we found her online, and it was obvious from our first meeting that her spacious, inviting home with the large, fenced backyard, caters to the canine... our boy enjoyed naps on the rug in front of the fireplace, snuggling with the friendly resident poodles, and taking walks. Ginger sent us emails with pictures of our boy while we were away, and even sent him home with a small photo album! Ginger properly administered our boy's medication to him twice daily, and accommodated our airline schedule for drop-off and retrieval. My husband joked that our four-legged family member would not want to return home after two weeks of such pampering!

We will use Ginger again, if we need to travel, and unhesitatingly recommend her to anyone else wanting a loving, attentive, home in which to leave their furry family member when the need for travel arises.
Ginger is so wonderful! I left my yorkie with her for about 5 days while I was away, and boy was I nervous, but she put me at ease as soon as I met her. She is so kind, caring, and her love for dogs is apparent immediately. She took such great care of my pup taking him on walks and giving him all the attention his spoiled self is already privy to. She even sent me photo updates and responded promptly to every text I sent bugging her about how he was doing! She is the only one in Anchorage I would trust to come back to.
Leaving our standard poodle for the first time in 3 years was a hard job and when we met Ginger for the first time and saw how she cared for her two standard poodles, I knew she would carefully care for our dog Happy. Her "love" is obvious and she rewarded the time apart with daily pictures to us while we were on our trip. I felt confident I could call her about anything. I truly recommend Ginger. Her dogs are lovable with a big fenced yard to play in and I am sure Happy would be eager to go and visit again. Thank you
Ginger is amazing! We took Dio to her house for 'daycamp', and not only did he not want to come home, but was also exhausted and fell right to sleep afterward! Not only that, Ginger asked all the right questions to make sure he had a safe, happy visit and sent us pictures throughout the day! I plan on using her again, and would recommend her for everyone!
