About Gerry

65 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Are your pets your fur babies? Do you only want the best for them? Well you've come to the right place! It's important to feel comfortable and confident that your furry family member is given the best care and love while you are away. I have a deep love for animals and I can provide you the confidence they are cared for and provide them the comfort they deserve. No cages, no kennels, only a loving home away from home. I have been boarding and pet sitting for many years and I have hosted many different breeds. I am retired and I am home most of the time, so your fur babies get plenty of attention.

My home offers plenty of comfort with dog beds, couches and toys. I am very happy to let my furry guests on the furniture (if that is OK with with you) and many even sleep with me in bed at night if that is what makes them happy. I have a large fenced, locked yard where they can play and relax.

Does your pet have special needs? No problem! I've hosted many special needs animals. I am a retired pediatric nurse so giving shots or medication is not a problem in my care. Separation anxiety? For fur babies that miss their family I make extra time and offer gentle reassurance on a consistent basis. All my anxious guests have always adjusted within a day. I have also cared for many senior pets that need extra assistance and, some of whom needed diaper care.

I understand it's not easy leaving your precious treasure, but when they are with me they will be treated like one of my own! Call or email as often as you want to check in and hear about the good time they are having. I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies soon so I can start spoiling them and giving them the quality care they deserve.

Gerry was incredible. She was so loving and caring with my dog. I would use her again without a doubt.
Our dog, Cinnamon, stayed for a week with Gerry & her adorable dog, Rusty. She has stayed with Gerry before & loves it every time! We know she is in excellent hands & when we pick her up she is always happy. Gerry is a wonderful person & she treats our dog like if she was her own. We are so thankful to Gerry for all she does! :)

Melo had such a great time with Gerry. We're so grateful we found her and will be using her every time we need a dog sitter.
Gerry was amazing she took such great care of my dog Daisy!!!!!
Gerry is truly amazing! She took care of our dog, Cinnamon, as if she was her own. We're so happy to have found Gerry. We're looking forward to our vacation, but I think Cinnamon is more excited because she gets to be with Gerry & Rusty again!
She is great, the second mother for our dog
Gerry was great. She took excellent care of my doggie while we were away on vacation for four days. She was always available when I called which always put me at ease. I will definitely be using her again. Thank you, Gerry!
Gerry is a very loving and caring person, our little maltese could not be in better hands. He is blind and deaf and needs constant attention, but Gerry provided all the care and more.
I was completely satisfied with Gerry. She is a very responsible and capable dog sitter. One of my dogs is a hound and has strong hunting instincts and had a grand old time hunting and running around her back yard. I can't wait to take them back in the early winter. She is a gem.

Gerry is great! Our dog Dottie can be a little high maintenance having a heart condition, needing oral medication and having to go outside more often than other dogs. Gerry, being the pediatric nurse she is, took wonderful care of her and she came back happy and healthy! We are so grateful we found her and hopefully she will take us back next time we have to go out of town :)

Gerry took care of my dog in an excellent way during the weekend we were out of town. Also, he got along well with Gerry's doggy and they both played a lot each other. Thank you, Gerry for your sweetness and dedication to my dog and your love for the animals. Excellent!

Like every loving pet owner leaving them when you go out of town is very stressful. I rarely do it but had no choice recently.
I met the most wonderful, caring, loving and safety oriented woman in Gerry. She surpassed my highest expectations.
My dogs will always stay with this sweet woman when I leave town.
Thank you again Gerry.

It is always a pleasant and reassuring event to leave my 3 "senior" fur babies with Gerry. One of my dogs is on heart meds and I know that I don't have to worry about either that issue or their dietary needs when they are in her care. Gerry is a sweetheart!

Oliver stayed with Gerry not only from the 17th to the 18th, but also from the 18th through the 29th.
What can I say? Gerry is a true sweetheart and a devoted animal lover, and has officially earned her title as an addition to Oliver's team of caretakers.
As long as we have Gerry, no one else will have Oliver!!
We love her and Oliver is already missing her.
Thanks Gerry for all your love,
Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Grandma, and mostly Oliver

Very good experience, as always. Gerry takes extra special care of all her guests.
Gerry is a true dog lover. She is very loving and concerned with safety. I would not hesitate to leave my pup with her again.
This is now the fourth time our fur babies have stayed with Gerry and she is truly a blessing. Our "babies" are now 12, 13 and 14 yrs old, two of them are on meds (one for arthritis and the other for cardiac issues) which makes it all the harder to leave them however with Gerry I know they're in excellent hands. I just don't know what I'd do without her!

Gerry was great. I cannot say enough nice things to do her justice. I have a very nervous dog that does not like to be out of her own environment. Gerry made her feel right at home. She is kind and professional and a true animal lover. Gerry goes out of her way to make your dog feel special and genuinely cared for. Thank you Gerry!

We are very happy with Gerry, as we notice Lucky felt like home; she is a pet lover
Awesome stay for Sadie & Jax per usual! Thank you for always taking great care of our babies while we are away, Gerry!
Awesome stay per usual! Gerry is amazing! Sadie and Jax love her and had a great time! They definitely had an amazing weekend away from home!!
Gerry is wonderful. I would definitely leave my dog and my cat with her. She is kind, gentle, responsible and accommodating. Her house has a nice backyard for my dog to run and exercise.
Gerry was amazing!! This was our second time leaving our Sadie with her and first time with Jax! They both enjoyed themselves! Gerry gives us peace of mind while traveling! Our pups love her and so do we!! Thanks again Gerry, for everything!
Gerry is awesome, I just can't say enough good things about her! I have left my 3 chihuahuas with her before and each time I leave them, I know they are well cared for which gives me peace of mind and the serenity to enjoy myself without worrying about them. I don't know what we'd do without her.. She's also a wonderful, loving human being, we love you Gerry!!!

Gerry stayed with our little guy, Kelly, over the holidays. Needless to say, when I showed up to pick him up he wasn't excited to see me at all thanks to such a wonderful time he had had with Gerry and Rusty.
If you are looking for the most caring dog lover in Miami, then look no further than Gerry. I would leave my dog with her before I leave it with my own mother (nothing against my mom, it's just that Gerry is that awesome)!
Thank you for everything Gerry!!!!!!

I loved the back yard space for my two dogs. Gerry was very attentive to their needs and kept in contact with us.
Ringo stayed here for 3 days while i was away. Ringo had a great time with Gerry and Rusty. She was super sweet and very attentive to my fur baby! highly recommended. Rusty is just a sweetheart!
I couldn't of asked for a better person to watch my baby dog(Littlefoot). She went well beyond to help us taking care of him.... I recommend her very much, if I have to come down to Miami I would love for her to take care of Littlefoot again.... Thanks again Gerry, from Bill and Debbie

Gerry and Rusty were wonderful! She was very welcoming and treated our dogs like they were her own. We received daily updates on how the dogs were doing while we were away. It is so wonderful to have someone you can trust with the kids and Gerry is definitely that person. The dogs can't wait to go back for another play date!

Gerry is great!
Sambuca had so much fun staying with Gerry! Rusty and her played so well together and he was such a good dog sharing his home and toys. I know my doggie was in good hands when we left and did not worry about her at all! Thank you Gerry and Rusty
I am very happy to found Gerry to take care of my Dog Molly. I was always concern about leaving her with a stranger, but Gerry has been so good with my baby, that i have no more worries. I will recommend her a100%
Gerry,
Thank you so much for taking good care of our Pug Chaunsy! You were patient, kind, caring and kept us informed while we were away!
I am sure he enjoyed playing in your yard and Rusty's company!
We will definitely leave him with you again when
we go on vacation and will highly recommend you
to our friends and family!
The very best, Ulises and Barbara

Gerry is amazing. My Duke was so happy when I picked him up. He got along great w her dog and loved being there! Highly recommend
Gerry was absolutely wonderful. I would not hesitate to bring Gunny to her again and again. She is a delightful person and very prepared to meet your pets needs. I was able to leave Gunny there all day for several days with no worries.
She has a beautiful home and fenced in yard, It is also very pet friendly.
Exceptional pet sitter.

I can not even begin to say how wonderful my experience with Gerry B was from beginning to end. She opened up her home to both my dogs and instantly I could tell she was an animal lover and both my dogs were going to be in an environment where they were going to be well cared for. Gerry is loving, caring, very calm and nurturing. I have had a negative experience with another person who I left my dogs with so I was very careful in meeting several people on the dog vacay site and from the beginning Gerry stood out the most as being the type of person who was going to provide the type of care that my dogs were accustomed to in my own home and I was not mistaken. My dogs came home and they were happy and calm and excited to see us all but they fell right back into our routine as if they had not even been separated from us. This was so different from our previous experience where my dogs came home and they exhibited signs of depression and nervousness and they took over a week of jumpiness to get back to normal. I am overjoyed to have found Gerry and would recommend her to anyone who treats their dogs like a family member or child. Her home is safe, she has a beautiful fenced yard where your dogs are safe to play. She listens carefully to your instructions and is just a beautiful person. Her little dog Rusty was as welcoming as she was to my 2 little dogs Koko and Charlie.

Gerry was so friendly. My little Flo spent a very good moment.
Gerry is wonderful! My dog loves going over. She is so sweet and attentive to our dog. She has a nice yard where the dogs can safely play outside. Cares and loves them like her own.
We left our pooch with Gerry for two whole weeks and it couldn't have worked out better. Our dog loved playing with the sweet host dog, Rusty, and got to have lots of fun outside in Gerry's backyard. Most importantly, Gerry made her, and us, feel like part of the family which gave us much needed peace of mind while we were away. We will definitely be using Gerry again!

Gerry was awesome! I knew she would be perfect from the moment I met her at the meet-n-greet.She took very good care of my 3 little neurotic and quirky chihuahuas and was flexible with drop off and pickup times. Each day when I'd call to check on the dogs, Gerry would give me a detailed account of what they were up to(that was so reassuring) and they made themselves at home quickly, no doubt due to the love they received! Her little terrier "Rusty", was also the perfect host, I might add! I feel blessed to have found Gerry and will definitely be using her again.

Wow, I truly cannot say enough good things about Gerry! We met her first at her home a few weeks before our trip and I knew immediately that she would be the perfect person to watch my two furbabies! I have a new puppy that is only 4 months old and can be quite a handful as most puppies are however, Gerry made me feel at ease that she could handle anything and she sure did! She let me know that I could call her whenever I needed to check in on my babies but after speaking to her the first night and hearing how well they were doing it put me at ease and allowed me to actually enjoy my trip and stop worrying about my dogs.
What I especially loved about Gerry is the fact that my 2 dogs were the only dogs she was pet sitting so she was able to give them her full, undivided attention. She does have one dog, Rusty who is the the ultimate gentleman and was a great host to my two pups. I will definitely be using her again in the future!

Gerry was wonderful I did not worry one minute about Charlie while we were on our trip. Gerry even let Charlie sleep with her. He had a wonderful time. I can highly recommend Gerry and hope we can use her services again
Gerry is the BEST! I highly recommend her.

Gerry was wonderful.I was very nervous leaving my Annie.She made me and Annie feel welcome. Very caring and loving.would definitely recommend her and hope to use her again.great house and yard and care.thank you
Geraldine is a true animal lover and was amazing with our little one! She took care of our Sadie as if she were her own. Geraldine spoiled her with love and attention. Sadie had such a great time playing with Rusty and got adjusted very quickly. Geraldine put my mind at ease from the start and did not mind one bit that I called each day to check in. We will definitely be contacting Geraldine to watch Sadie in the future!

Geraldine was great with Apollo! It was like he lived there his whole life. I don''t think he even noticed we were gone. I think he even missed Rusty when we got home! Thanks Geraldine for giving us peace of mind on our vacation!
Geraldine is a true animal lover. Thanks Gery
