About Tina

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
This is my only source of income, so I'm home most of the time. Your dog will get lots of love from me. I am away from home for errands, etc, but usually only for a couple hours here and there.

Do to our small home, we can only take small dogs. No dogs over 30 pounds.

Alexie does take a little bit to warm up to new dogs.

Alexie is our baby, she was rescued from a full, high kill shelter in KY. We adopted her in May, 2011. My family and I have always had dogs and love their companionship. Your dog(s) will be treated as if they were our own. As you can see from my pics, we are used to having other dogs around.

FYI, I have a bad back and am not able to take dogs for walks. I do my best to give them exercise inside. I do not have a fenced in yard, I do have 2 tie outs.

Tina is fantastic! She sent me pictures and I never worried about my dog. Thanks!
Tina did a wonderful job taking care of our dogs! I highly recommend her and will use her again.
Tina
You are simply an angel.
Chelsea had hard time leaving you when you dropped her off.
Thank you for being so wonderful and caring.
I have no doubt that she would love to be at your home again.
So glad we found you.
Sincerely,
Tali Chelsea and all the rest

Tina did a great job, my dog was happy and content I'll use her again. 5 star sitter.
It was comforting to get the pics from Tina and know my dogs were doing well. I will be using Tina again!
We used Tina for a weeks vacation. We had never left our Baby, even overnight, and were quite nervous. Tina was great. She put our mind at ease, both before, with a meet and greet, and during, with daily updates. I will definitely use Tina anytime we need to leave our precious Baby.

Tina was excellent with our dogs! She sent us photos everyday so we could see that they were happy! We came home to happy dogs!
Tina is very friendly individual. She loves dogs. I appreciate the photos of Milo she sends us daily,
Tina was caring and great with Carmel Carmel will be back in August! Thanks Tina!
Maizy had such a good time, she almost didn't want to come home! We will definitely call again when we go out of town! Thanks!
We have used Tina twice to watch our dog Drew and both times we were highly satisfied with Tina's care of our dog and will use her the next time we need to some one care for our dog.
Great experience...Jojo loved his vacay at Tina's.
Thank you Tina!! Jojo loved minute of his vacation as well!
Our two dachshunds seemed to have a great time with Tina and the other dogs! We felt very safe leaving them in a home with other small dogs and really appreciated that Tina texted us photos throughout the stay. We loved receiving them and felt good knowing our dogs were happy! Tina was exceptionally nice and easy to communicate with.

Schatzi and Harley spent 5 nites with Tina. She sent pix and texts with constant updates! Thanks Tina!
Tina performed exceptionally throughout the whole process from initial meeting, subsequent communications, pickup by Tina, and care of Christie. As we left on an extended vacation, Tina was excellent in her responsiveness to our request/inquiries and fulfilled all expectations including communicating and picking up Christie from our neighbor to assure a smooth transition. Tina also did a superb job in maintaining contact with us during Christie's stay including sending updates and pictures as well as videos.

We could not have been more pleased overall as Tina was also very understanding and helpful in that we had to pick up Christie later than initially planned due to delayed flight from our trip.

We will definitely contact Tina in the future when the need arises again to have someone take care of Christie as we have confidence in entrusting Christie to Tina's care and appreciate her love of dogs.

Tina is awesome! Buckwheat enjoyed his stay with her. I think it is safe to say he misses her too.
My dog is always happy to go to Tina's house. She sent me a lot of happy pictures during the stays. I'm very happy with her service.
Tina B is friendly. My puppy was kept alongside Tina's small dog and any other dog being watched that day. Which is great, because I think my dog prefer's other dog's company anyway. I received pictures of my puppy across multiple days of her stay. My puppy is only puppy pad and litter box trained. I was told my puppy did her business on the pad, which tells me she was happy with her stay.

Tina is a wonderful host!!! It's obvious that she truly loves dogs. It's hard to be away from your beloved dog and Tina makes it easier by sending pictures frequently. I feel very comfortable leaving my little one with her :)
Tina is a warm and pleasant Lady. You could just feel the genuine care and love that she has for dogs and that reassures me that she takes good care of Lexi.
I believe this past weekend is Lexi's 3rd or 4th time staying with Tina.
Thank you again Tina

I've never used any dogsitter because Mylo is not the easiest dog to leave in the care of others. I had a lot of concerns about him but Tina did a great job caring for him. She sent daily updates and remained in contact with me when I had questions or concerns. I highly recommend Tina.

Highly recommend! Tina is a very caring person and will love your pup endlessly.
My dog loves Tina. I swear my dog is disappointed when he comes home, since its not as fun as Tina's!
MY DOG LOVES TINA!
Tina is a very conscientious person. While I was away, she put my mind at ease. She periodically sent me updates - sent pics of my dog, and other dogs he played with. She was very prompt in her responses to any questions I had.

While I was away, my dog was very well cared for. My dog bonded with her and was "at home" with her. In addition, Tina put me at ease by sending updates on the dog.

Highly recommended!
I love the doggie pics with comments Tina sends - they are just priceless!

The pics tell me that my shy doggie is "at home" at Tina's and that he is doing very well. One thing for sure, you can not make a dog to say "cheers" for the camera, right?

Zorro came home spoiled! So glad there is someone reliable close to home. Being around other dogs was great for my pup and I felt comfortable with the care Tina gave him. Definitely recommend and will be using her again in the future.
Tina did a great job! I love the photos that she sent to us when we were away from our furry babies! Great job!
Tina understands dogs very well. Houdini, a shy dog, felt very much at home when I boarded him with Tina.

She is a very gracious host and is generous with her time. I like the fact that she takes the time to send pics of the dog(s) to the owners when they are boarded with her which puts dog owners, who are away, very much at ease.

I will board with her again.

I was very satisfied, Tina is a great host. Its been second time , so you can say I`m repeating customer. I`ll be back next time,
She did a great job while we were on a vacation!
Tina did a great job with Penny. Penny has some health issues and Tina was more than willing to give her her medications as needed and she also has a food allergy that Tina worked well with. We will definitely go back again!
Lola and Archie had a blast, as usual. The moment they got home, they were napping most of the evening and slept in late this morning. They are always excited to go see Tina!!!!
Tina was wonderful with our dogs and sent daily pictures to us while we were on vacation
Tina was great! Our little baby Richie was kindly looked after and came home from one loving family to another. I would highly recommend Tina.
We needed to leave town on short notice, and turned to dogvacay the previous night. Tina accepted our request without hesitation, and we didn't have to stress about where we would take the dog.
Her and Alexis were great hosts, and were very accommodating to our drop-off and pick-up times.
I recommend her to everyone.

My pups had a blast as always!
Excellent...as always!!
Tina is the BEST! We have left MiMi with her several times, and we have never been disappointed. Drop off and pick up is easy, and Tina is a loving person.
Great sitter...recommend her
Will definitely use Tina again. She sent me pictures of MaeLing which put my mind at ease. Thanks Tina!!
Wonderful experience, never disappointed!! My fur babies love staying with Tina. I would not use another sitter since going there!
Always a great experience, my Dogs love staying with Tina!
It was my first time I used an app, and I am very satisfied with how it turned.
Tina was great, I was receiving pictures of our dog daily. Day before pick up I was asked what time I may be coming to make sure our dog will be ready, and when I called to let her know I`ll be early she adjusted her schedule to make sure I won`t be waiting.
Very good experience, I`ll be back when needed.

Tina was great, I would recommend her to anyone. She was extremely accommodating with the crazy pick up and drop off times I had. She sent me updates all throughout my trip, including pictures. It was a great experience and I will definitely being using Tina again.

Great experience. Our dog was well taken care of, and happy and healthy when we picked her up after 4 nights. Tina knew how to handle her and was very nice. The price was very good as well. I have no complaints.
Tina was wonderful with my two fur babies. I was put at ease with messaging and pictures. I would recommend her services.
Tina is the best! She is very flexible and sweet, and knows the personalities of her pups. Our Yorkie can be skiddish, but Tina handles her with care and concern. Thanks Tina!
We're very happy with our experience. She treats Ross like her own. We appreciate her sending photos during our dog's stay. We'll definitely be calling back.
Tina did a very good job with my dog Chester.he came home very happyI will be using her in the future
Tina did a great job with my 2 dogs. I recommend her.
Tina did a great job while we were on vacation... We did not have to worry about them at all. She even sent pictures of my 3 dogs. They had a blast! We will use her when we go on vacation, next time. Thanks, Tina, for everything.
For a small dog this is the best place to stay! My Nina, a 9 lb Chihuahua must have felt just like home, judging by the wonderful pictures Tina was emailing to me. Those photos were a great bonus, and they made us feel good about our choice. This was Nina's first stay with Tina, but it will definitely not be her last!
We will be back!

I trust Tina to take care of my girls. My dogs recently went overnight for the second time and seemed pretty content. Her dog is a cutie too. She is good at communicating and sends photos of the dogs.
I really like that Tina's full-time job is to care for dogs. Josh, our Jack Russell terrier, has separation anxiety and he settled in nicely at Tina's home. I really liked receiving the daily photos as I was nervous leaving Josh the first time, but Tina knows what she is doing!
Josh is returning to stay with Tina and she graciously is squeezing him in for a few days!

I would not leave my furry babies with anyone else but Tina! The are immediately comfortable with her and her home, and I swear, if I did not know better, they don't even miss me when they stay with her! Tina is definately a "pet person" and I highly recommend anyone who needs a pet sitter to try her first. You won't be sorry!

Wonderful as always.
PERECT! Enjoyed my vacation with peace of mind my dog was in good hands!
Tina is great! She is very loving and caring! I know our dog is in great hands!!
This is the second time our yorkie MiMi stayed with Tina. It was a last minute reservation, and Tina was sooooo accommodating. We received an update and picture each day. Thanks Tina, you are great!
Tina B provided wonderful care for my spoiled dog lily for almost 2 weeks. Keeping me informed and sending pictures to make sure i was enjoying my vacations.
I strongly recommend Tina B , it is home away from home and peace of mind if you can't take your dog with you. Thanks and see you soon!!!

Tina has much experience with dogs. She allowed my little scared yorkie to get used to her new surroundings little by little. Tina is kind, courteous, and flexible. Thanks Tina!
Tina arranged our meet and greet several months earlier. She sent me a photo update during our vacation. I will be going back to Tina in the future.
Tina was great! She made Peyton feel at home. She also posted pictures which was really sweet!
Tina did a great job taking over for my original host when a problem came up. I would highly recommend her and gladly use her again. Total thumbs up.
Amazing as always! Daily pictures and easy drop off and pickups make Tina so easy to work with!
Wonderful as always, my pups came home with no stress and were very clearly loved while I was out of town.
Jodan had the best time ever !!!!
Tina was the best! She made our dog feel like he was at home. Will use her again and again!!
Once again Tina was great! Lola spent the week with her and had an awesome time. We will definitely be back. :)
Tina was great! She took care of our Chihuahua for a week and provided regular updates through pictures and text messages. Our normally shy dog seemed well taken care of and got along with the other dogs in Tina's care. Would highly recommend!
Very friendly.
Tina was great, and even drove far out of her way to pick up my dog. Would definitely have her watch Harvey again.
Tina was really wonderful and put all my fears to rest! She was very sweet and welcomed Diva with open arms. She was open and honest about Diva's progress during the visit and sent frequent texts to me while I was away. I'll definitely bring Diva back to Tina the next time I have to go out of town. Thanks Tina!

She was very flexible with the schedule and even though it was one night, I got a picture of my boys. It was nice to know that my boys were being cared for.
This was our first experience leaving our puppy- needless to say we were a bit worried about it. Tina was very understanding and very patient with us (as we did text to check in on our little guy!) Communication was fast each and every time. We were feeling much better about it within a few hours-as Tina was very caring toward Spence. We are very grateful to Tina and her husband for taking care of our newest family member!

My little Lola has soooo much fun with Tina!!! She was happy and excited the whole time. How do I know? Tina was great and sent video updates of Lola. It put my mind right at ease. I will definitely use Tina again and I would highly recommend her!!!

Tina was wonderful! Very loving with my two pups, and I could tell right away she was going to take great care of them. I received photo updates daily.
Tina did a great job. Bella really enjoyed her time there!
Tina was very kind and loving to Sparky. Has a very clean home to house your dog.
She had two small dogs and a retriever already as guests and they all seemed to be having a great time.
Thank you Tina for taking such tender care of Sparky.

Tina was great taking care of Truffle. She went out her way to pick up /drop off during his stay. I received pictures on regular basis from her. She had Truffle for over a month. I would definitely recommend Tina and her services. I will be using her services again.

Tina is very accommodating in working with my schedule to drop off/pick up my dogs. She takes great care of my boys when I can't be here, better even because she is home during the day! I will continue to use her as much as I can!
