About Gemma

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I would love to take care of your dog(s)! I've taken care of friends and neighbors' dogs for years for fun so I am experienced.

You can trust your dog(s) with me because:
1. Our own dog is friendly and loves playmates;
2. I work from home so your dog will have human company during the day;
3. We have a large, fenced backyard;
4. My 2 sons also love dogs so your pet(s) will get plenty of exercise, entertainment and cuddling;
5. I'll take your dog(s) for daily runs or walks.

I will care for your pet as if s/he is my own!

***Rates are higher for puppies (under 1 year) and during holidays.***

Gemma was a great host. She was quick to respond to the booking request and my questions. Due to weather events, we had to modify our reservation times and Gemma was very flexible. Our dog (a 60 pound Hound Mix) looked like he enjoyed his time. We received pictures while we were away as well. I would rebook with Gemma and recommend her.
Our dog, Banjo just returned from another extended stay at Gemma's house. He was very happy and excited when I picked him up and looked great and well-cared for. Banjo is our only dog but he loves greeting other dogs on our walks, has so much fun on doggie play dates, and loves the dog park, so staying at Gemma's house is like an 11 day long play date for him! He is also used to running/walking with me everyday so knowing Gemma takes him out for his exercise is a big plus for me.
Once again, Gemma was easy to book with and was great with communication. She sent us photos of what Banjo was up to during his vacation with her. I highly recommend Gemma to anyone who is looking to have their dog stay in a comfortable dog friendly home!
I have used Gemma for boarding and day care a few times. She is great. Quick in response and very flexible with my schedule. My dog Bailey seems like to take a little vacation at her house because she can't wait to go in everytime when we get there.
Making a reservation with Gemma was seamless - she was quick to respond to any questions and requests.
Our whole experience with Gemma was great. From her quick response to my inquiry, to easing my mind about my puppy's safety and care, to posting daily updates with pictures. She even hand fed my puppy when she wouldn't eat. So nice to know she was in good hands!
I left Josie with Gemma overnight while I attended Game 3 of the World Series -- the experience of a lifetime! Her flexibility and ease with Josie, who is a bit uncomfortable when I leave him, made it possible. Plus, she sent a funny picture! Thank you!
Wrigley always comes home completely exhausted in a good way! Gemma keeps in touch with photos which gives us great peace of mind
Gemma was great to deal with. She responded promptly and made it easy to drop off and pick up our dog. We are first-time dog owners and she reassured us that the lively dog interactions with some of her other guests was normal. It's like dropping off your preschooler...hoping all those playground maniacs will all get along. Our dog returned tired and content. Thanks, Gemma!
Great Host. Sent many pictures throughout the stay and we felt very comfortable. This is our second time using her and we will use again this month.
Gemma did a great job taking care of our dog. Thanks for the daily photos and treating her as one of your own.
great again! thanks
Gemma was wonderful! Lots of pictures and kept in touch with us very well! Thank you!
Our dog, Banjo had a wonderful time staying with Gemma! He loves being pet and cuddled and enjoys playing with other dogs as well. Since were going to be away for over 2 weeks, I wanted to find a place for him to stay that was almost like home. Gemma's house was a perfect fit! There were always other sweet dogs for ours to play with and Gemma was great at keeping us updated with pics of Banjo and his new friends. Banjo had a lot of fun and was calm and happy when I picked him up. He even ran back to get another goodbye cuddle from Gemma which was so sweet and a very good sign!

Gemma is great with communication and truly knows how to make dogs feel special and cared for. I highly recommend Gemma and will definitely be booking Banjo at her house again.
Gemma is very relaxed about any special care and my pup seems very happy to see her which is important to me.
Loved seeing the daily pics. Sweet lady!!
Our dog had wonderful stay with Gemma!
Gemma was great. Teddy was well taken care of. He was taken for walks and had a backyard to play in. Teddy was comfortable at the meet and greet and Gemma sent pictures regularly. I would highly recommend Gemma.
Gemma is not only a very experienced dog sitter; but it is obvious that she loves dogs.

Our tiny puppy was surrounded by larger dogs; but they were all very well behaved, and Gemma paid particular attention to her.

We look forward to our next outing; especially knowing that our baby is in good hands!!
Gemma was fantastic. She is a lovely, warm host and knows how to handle dogs. I have full confidence in her. She sent us pictures during our dog's stay which was really sweet.
Gemma was a phenomenal host. Someone that I will continue to rely on for future boarding...

We have two dogs. One, a 3lb puppy which, due to her size, we are overly protective of. We once had to bring her into the emergency room because she is stubborn, and sometimes finds it difficult to eat. We had to travel and was very nervous about leaving her for over a week with a stranger.

However, when we first contacted Gemma, she was warm and eased our concerns. She ensured that she was fine with providing extra care for our pup, and monitoring her food and stools. During our pups stay Gemma sent us multiple pictures each day and updates whenever we inquired. She always responded to our messages (nearly immediate). And, we can tell our dog enjoyed her stay at Gemma's residence.

My wife and I are grateful that we found someone that we can trust with our two dogs in the future.
Gemma was extremely pleasant to deal with both before our trip (setting up logistics etc) and during (she was great about sending pictures and updates everyday). She seemed to really care about the dogs which is exactly the kind of person you need when you are away!
Our dog had a great stay with Gemma
Gemma was wonderful and welcomed our dog right from the start. We enjoyed daily pictures and believe that he received lots of TLC during his stay. We've already booked his next Vacay with Gemma!
Gemma is very positive and accommodating. I loved that she emailed great photos at least once a day. She must be very patient and organized to be able to take care of so many dogs at once! And, for me, she was only a little over a mile from my home, so dropping off and picking up was incredibly convenient.
From the moment Gemma greeted our dog, Roxy, I felt comfortable leaving them together. Roxy came home happy and relaxed. I will not hesitate to leave her with Gemma again. What a nice feeling!
Gemma and her boys are amazing. My dog, who is a tad picky about who he lets into his life, got lots of attention, settled right in and made himself at home. Gemma is very flexible and accomodating.
Gemma was great to work with! She was very flexible with dates and pick up/ drop off times. Our pup settled right in and made herself comfortable. Love that there were other dogs to play with and a great back yard. Charlotte came home exhausted and happy.
Thanks to Gemma, our two pups were happy and tired when we picked them up. Gemma carefully customized the sleeping/eating arrangements for Tobiko, our aging Great Pyr mix, and our puppy, Anya. She has a nice big, fenced backyard where the pups all frolic, so they definitely got a lot of exercise. And apparently, from the photos especially, it was clear the pups got a lot of loving from Gemma's boys! That was a big plus for our two couch potatoes. Thanks Gemma!
