About Gabby

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love dogs and always wish for more! we have one dog: a 4 yr old Shipoo mix. We have a large home, with a large, pawtastic yard and the dogs always go out for playtime, weather permitting.

I work from home most of the time, and we have a whole team here to care for the dogs - in addition to myself, our team has a couple other care providers: my mom lives on the premises and helps with feeding, care giving, and my son is pitching in with playtime and walks. There is an adult present at all times in the house. I always take the guest pup in my bedroom at night so he/she does not feel lonely.

My pup is friendly and playful; I treat all dogs like they are my own. They get lots of love, belly scratching, treats, toys and fun. I bake cookies all the time and only use simple, basic ingredients like whole wheat, peanut butter, milk, bacon but they are always a hit. We'll keep in touch at all times by im or email, phone, etc.

My son is a teenager, young and silly, he gets out in the back yard every day to throw the ball, and of course he gets down on the floor to be with them.

Tesla loves his daily walks through our safe neighborhood, if your dog likes walks he will join us.

We would love to have your dog join us!

P.S. We schedule the visits in 24-hour slots. Especially for the busy times of the year, summer, fall and winter holidays, please try to pick up your pup about 24-27 hours later.

All funds raised through pet boarding are for PACE, a NY not-for-profit organization.

Sailor seemed to enjoy his vacation away from home especially with Gabby's son who got on the ground and played with him!
Our dog Abbie is very at home with Gabby and her family. She walks in wagging her tail and is always fine and happy when we pick her up. Thanks Gabby!
My boys did awesome with Gabby & Rob. They sent me pictures and reassured me that they were doing well! This was huge for me because I was able to not worry so much. Gabby had no trouble giving Seamus his medicine which he can be difficult about at times. Will definitely use them again. Peace of mind and I know they gave my boys lots of love!

Gabby and Robert are the best Marley is 13 and they are so good with him .they the best,,,,,
Just wanted to say that Gaby, Michael and Robert were absolutely AMAZING!!!. It was the first time my two dogs were taking care by someone else besides my husband and I, and Gaby with her sweet personality won them over, she and the rest of the family had so much patience and love for my puppies, that little by little they made them feel like home, when saw them after vacation, both of them were happy. I cannot thank them enough for all the love, caring and dedication to my boys, Ralphie and Oscar. She emailed me pictures and keep me posted every day on how they were doing during the whole time we were out. They were happy there, she took such a good care of them, she was on top of their meals , and even got worried when they were not eating that much at first, she tried all her tricks to ensure they were happy and at the end it paid off. Gaby sent us a note after we returned home to check on us and see how the “sweet babies” like she called my two boys were doing and asked to give both of them a big kiss, this is priceless!! I am so happy, I met Gaby, because I am for sure can say that my two boys have found a second family (Aunt Gaby)

Gabby is an incredibly warm and genuine woman. I am very comfortable leaving my pup in her care.
Our little yorkie Diesel stayed with Gabby & Robert while i was away on vacation. Gabby is SUPER SWEET and loves the fur balls as though they are her own! She would send me notes and picture of Diesel having fun with her little guy. He came home happy and tired from having such a good time! I would deff recommend Gabby & Robert to watch your little ones!

Gabby had Lucy for Two weeks which is a very long time but Lucy had a fantastic time. She looked happy and actually gained weight! She was calm when we got home and I can tell she was loved. Lucy had a nice vacation with her doggie friends!
Our pup Roland had a great time during his first visit! Looking forward to bringing him back to this great home!
This was the third time our dog stayed with Gabby and Robert and family. She continues to be well cared for and I get regular texts updates as well as photos. We will ask Gabby to dog sit again!
i don't think we can adequately express our gratitude and total satisfaction with the care that was given our dogs by Gabby and Robert. This is a family who genuinely loves spending time with dogs and treat them as though they were their own cherished pets. We heard from our pups while we were away and even got pictures of them via text. How wonderful to see the look of complete contentment on their little faces. We had no doubt that we had made the right choice with Gabby and Robert. They were able to quickly read our dogs' individual personalities and gave them the attention they each required. Our boys came home to us happy, healthy and thankful for the wonderful new friends they have in Gabby and Robert.

Once again there aren't enough words of praise for Gabby, her son Robert and her entire family. They treat my dog Chloe as if she was one their own. They give her the "extra special" care because she is blind. Gabby will sit and hold my Chloe untill she is comfotable in her surroudings once again. I really could go on and on!! I've watched her with other dogs in their care and it's truly a remarkable family with lots of love to share!!
Not for one second would I consider anyone else to watch and love my dog!!

Our Duke gets..Loving, Caring, Safe Home, Full Attention, Exercising and so easy to deal with. That is Gabby and Robert.
Gabby was excellent. We have never left our dog for that long. I was very worried about being gone that long. Gabby sent me emails everyday and pictures. I will never leave Mowgli with anyone else but her. I was a Happy time for me as I was able to relax and enjoy our vacation. Thank you so much Gabby for you loving and caring of Mowgli ❤️

This was our pup's second stay with Gabby. Once again, she was well cared for and we received texts and photos of her each day. We expect to use her services again soon.
Fabulous! My dog Mia had a fantastic time and enjoyed playing with the dogs that were there! Gabby kept me up to date and sent pictures too! Wonderful experience!
We were very happy with Gabby and Robert. Our dog came home in great shape and we will be asking Gabby to care for her again.
Summer is over and Duke is back with Gabby and Robert, he couldn't be happier. He just loves it there, and the best part is they love Duke!! Awesome experience as usual.
Gabby and her family were amazing. I adopted a new puppy and had a family wedding to attend out of state. I was in a dilemma because all my family, those I would rely on to care for a family member, were going to be out of town for the event. I wasn't sure anyone would take a puppy, but Gabby welcomed our Bailey into her home with love and undivided attention. As soon as I met Gabby I was reassured that our puppy would be well cared for. I would recommend her, and her loving home to anyone seeking a devoted and caring person to provide care for their dog. Thank you Gabby, Kathy March

Gabby is a kind sitter. I am very happy I found such a wonderful place to leave Molly when we are out of town!
Great experience- Gabby is great, always communicates and sends pictures to update you on your pup
I can hardly express how wonderful a dog sitter Gabby is! My dog Cosmo has now spent a total of 8 nights with Gabby, and I can honestly say I would never plan on sending him anywhere else! I received plenty of texts and photo's during his stay to reassure me of the great care that he was receiving, and all of the kind words Gabby had to say about Cosmo really showed how much she cares for all of her dogs. Both times I have picked Cosmo up from Gabby's house he has not wanted to leave, and he has been clearly exhausted from playing with Gabby, her son, and of course the other dogs! You will be hard pressed to find a more loving, and better qualified caregiver for your dog!

It was very easy to book the reservation. Gabby took great care of my dog Molly. She has found her new sitter!
Gabby and her son Robert did an outstanding job taking care of Jake, my 120 lb German shepherd. He stayed with them for 15 days and I was sent emails every few days. Gabby was genuinely upset to see Jake leave. She obviously loves dogs. I would definitely use her services again.

I hesitate to right a review, because I am afraid Gabby will become so popular, I'll never get a reservation! My dog was well taken care of and had a ball playing with Gabby's dogs and their other friends. Gabby stayed in touch with me while our family was away and sent us pictures, making me feel like she was happy and cared for. I will be comfortable leaving my dog here again, know she will be happy to be there, and I won't have to worry.

Duke had a wonderful vacay. He actually had a new girlfriend poodle to romp around the pool with. Although Duke does not like to go in the pool, he faithfully waited for his new girlfriend to get out and run around again with her. Gabby and Robert really make Duke feel at home. Gabby makes a very welcoming home for our dog. Thanks Gabby, Robert and Mom too!

Gabby is wonderful with our dog, Bentley. We take him to daycare at Gabby's house two days a week and he loves it! I know he is in good hands with Gabby, and we will continue to bring him to her in the future.
As always, Chloe's stay with Gabby was awesome! I can't imagine anyone else who would "snuggle with" and give my blind girl as much attention and love as Gabby and her family!!
Gabby is just the sweetest most loving person!! Gabby and her family are the only people I would ever leave my dog with! My 10 yr old Chloe is now blind and Gabby gives her all the gentle love and care she needs!❤️❤️❤️
Another great visit. I think our dog likes it there so much he hates to come home. We had to force him to leave LOL. He had plenty of fun in the snow with Robert and his dog friends.. Gabby you are the best!
Our puppy had such a great experience staying with Gabby while we were away. Gabby was so sweet and she texted me updates everyday, which was great for a worried dog mom :) We will definitely use Gabby again!
Thank you Gabby and Robert for taking such good loving care of our Duke. Also for making your home his home while we are away!!
Emma's stay was great! Gabby is so kind and is clearly a dog lover.
I can't even put into words how wonderful Gabby is!! She cared for my dog, who just lost sight in both eyes due to cataracts, as if she were her own. Gabby text with me all week long to give me updates on how well Chloe was doing. She even sent me pictures!! I have only ever left my dog with family. Gabby is now part of our family and I would leave my Chloe with her without hesitation.
Her home is immaculate and set up perfectly to care for dogs!! As I said before, there really aren't enough words to describe this caring and loving woman who watches other's dogs.

Another great stay with Gabby and her son Robert. This is a home full of love for dogs. The whole family takes part in the care of your pet,even grandma! We are very pleased with the fun, exercise and doggie companions that makes our dog's stay so enjoyable. Gabby keeps in contact with the best pictures and texts about our Duke.
I would recommend Gabby to anyone who wants a nice home away from home for their dog.

Gabby took very good care of our dog while we were gone for 1 week. She sent us texts & photos which was very helpful because we missed him so much. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gabby. She is a true dog lover!
Gabby is the kindest and most loving caregiver to our cockapoo Louis. We have traveled several times and know he was in very good hands. We are lucky to have Gabby and her loving family.
This was our second time with Gabby and her family. They took great care of our Duke, and he was very happy when we picked him up, so happy he did not want to leave!!
He was well exercised, and given plenty of love, Gabby kept in touch with us and let us know what a fun time Duke was having, and how he was doing. Thanks Gabby, Robert and Mom, see you soon!

This was out first time using Gabby and she was wonderful. Marley seemed to have a great time and it was obvious that he was well care for during his visit.
Gabby was just a dream to work with. She is so friendly and accommodating and a true dog lover. She took great care of our lab and if we weren't moving out of the state, we would definitely have her watch our dog every time we needed to board him.
Gabby is fantastic. Salty had a great time at her home and I felt completely comfortable leaving him there! I highly recommend her!
Thank you again for taking care of Charlie! I know he is excellent care when he is with you, which puts my mind at ease when we are away from home.
Our first experience with Gabby and it was a great one. Gabby and her son Robert were so warm and kind to our Duke, and Duke was a very happy dog.
It is a loving and caring home, and we felt very comfortable leaving our sweet dog with them. Gabby cared for Duke like he was her own, and Duke seemed extremely happy when we picked him up. He had plenty of exercise, and interaction with other dogs.
I would recommend Gabby with confidence to anyone considering her to take care of their pet.

I felt so comfortable leaving Salty with Gabby! She has a lot of experience with dogs, her own as well as the other dogs she watches, and Salty was comfortable at Gabby's house as soon as he walked in! It was Salty's first time staying away from home, but Gabby made it such an easy transition! I highly recommend Gabby!

We can’t say enough about the excellent care Gabby and her son, Robert, gave my dog Brandy while we were on vacation.  We were always very nervous to leave Brandy before; she has special dietary needs, takes medication and she is a very timid dog, but she felt very much at home at Gabby’s house.  While we were away, we received frequent updates via text messaging and pictures.  We were gone for 2 weeksbut we felt comfortable the entire time.  When we picked Brandy up, I could tell how much she loved being there.  She did not look like she missed us much, she was more active, playful and just happy. 

As long as we can board Brandy with Gabby, we can now travel and have peace of mind; we are so lucky to find such a great place for our dog.  Highly recommended.
Thank you Gabby and many thanks to you Robert.

Dealing with Gabby is always a very positive experience-
Gabby was absolutely wonderful. we have never left our two Maltese puppies with anyone ever before but my mom. I feel totally comfortable leaving our dogs with Gabby anytime.
I dropped my dog off for several days & was very pleased with Gabby- She communicated and sent us pictures which was great! We were running late in terrible traffic and Gabby couldn't have been more accommodating & understanding!
I think he had a very good time, he was very happy!!!
Thanks Gabby!!

Eli seemed to have really enjoyed his sleepover party at Gabby's house. It was only for one night, but I will definitely be leaving my boy with her again for longer in the future. :)

Gabby and her son were a fantastic fit for my dog Oscar. You can tell right from the start that they are truly dog lovers. I would absolutely leave Oscar with them again!!!
Mia's 4th stay with Gabby, as always an excellent experience for us-knowing she is so well cared for,
and Mia always comes home happy and well cared for.
Ask Mia where is Gabby? Her tail wags, and she goes to the door. No better assurance than that!

Chuey seems very much at home with Gabby & her two dogs, which is very comforting. She sent us texts each day to let us know how he was doing. We really appreciate hearing from her even though we weren't worried about him.
It was great! Chuey liked Gabby & her son as well as her dogs. Thanks Gabby.
gabby took very good care of my dog. we were gone for 2 weeks .her dog is great was a plus.my dog did not miss us at all. gabby is my dog 2nd home
gabby /was very very good with sazzie we are booking with gabby in fed
Gabby's services went above and beyond my expectations. A true professional caregiver. Her home is dog friendly and and very safe. A completely fenced in yard and comfortable accommodations for your pet. My dog Mia was adopted from a shelter only 5 months before I had to travel for 9 days, I could not bear to put her back in a shelter environment. After my meet and greet I felt completely sure that Mia would be happy here. Mia is very shy and timid, Gabby spent much time with her, even allowed her to sleep with her in her bedroom. Mia was a very picky eater and Gabby solved that problem by giving me several tips to encourage Mia to eat. Her Family truly loves dogs and it was very evident to me that they enjoyed having Mia as much as Mia enjoyed being there.
I can not say any more. Mia was well cared for in every way and I now look forward to my next trip, because I know that if Gabby is available I can travel without worrying about Mia. Gabby and her family provided an excellent dog care experience.

Everything was great! Received text messages and updates on our dog from Gabby while we were away. Our dog seemed like he had the time of his life and was well taken care of. Would definitely use Gabby G again.
Charlie had a great time with Gabby and her family! She welcomed Charlie into her home as if he was her own dog. She loved him so much and took such good care of him. Thank you!
