About Gina

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a pet lover. I enjoy every moment I spend with animals. I've been a dog sitter for years and I'm very involved in cat rescue work. The ability to work with animals, create my own income stream, and have time flexibility are all reasons why I leapt at the opportunity to work with Pets.

My hallmarks are patience, good humor, friendliness, and a positive "can-do" attitude. These characteristics serve me well both as a dog handler and the mother of an 8 year old daughter, who lives with me in Oakland and shares my passion for animals. We also have a dog loving cat named Fo Shizzle.

When conducting on site pet sitting visits I bring in mail, newspaper, take out trash, clean up after your pet, turn lights on/off, along with feeding, walking and cleaning litter boxes..

I also send updates, free of charge, with pictures, either by email or text, so you know your pets are being loved and I don't charge extra for medications.

I have been a dog walker and pet sitter for over two years as well as being an avid pet owner for 12 years. I have worked with elderly dogs as well as dogs with disabilities. I also work with the feral cat foundations rescue program. My Holiday rate is $55

Gina is THE BEST! She loves our dog; always welcomes her with open arms, and gives her a great vacay. Gina is reliable, responsive and a great friend to our dog (and us)!!
Gina helped me out of a bind when our regular boarder was unavailable. She was responsive and genuine and gave us the reassurance that we needed to leave our dog with her for the weekend.
I'm so happy I found Gina to take care of my baby boy. She was very pleasant to to talk to and very flexible. Biscuit came home happy and best of all I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing my baby was in good hands. Thank you Gina and will see you again for sure.

My dog Gino enjoyed the visit and learned how to act nicely around cats! I highly recommend Gina for love and care of your pet.
Gina was great to work with. Easy going, and flexible. Loved the picture updates. Zed had a great time with her!
great service. loving care. Gina is the best!
Bear has stayed with Gina three times so far, and he's always come home happy. (I can't believe I haven't left a review earlier!) It's clear from the photos that Gina sends me that Bear is having a good time and getting all the attention that he craves.

We'll definitely be booking more stays with Gina in the future!

Gina was so awesome to take our dog in last minute. He had been sick and needed meds and she was so kind to take him overnight. He seemed so happy and comfortable with her the moment he walked in the door. Gina is an excellent communicator and very fast to respond to any questions/ messages. We will definitely use Gina again!

Gina was amazing! On a very busy holiday weekend, Gina stepped up to take in my high energy, attention-seeking dog. And our dog immediately felt at ease with her. Gina seemed very relaxed about everything, which is so nice when I and my dog can be pretty anxious about me leaving. Plus she made sure to send regular picture updates. Would definitely recommend to others and would use her again in a heartbeat!

Gina was a great doggy host. She took care of my pooch Cora and my friend's doggy Oscar. She took them to Point Isabel several times, which the doggies of course loved. She clearly loves taking care of the dogs and I would recommend her in the future to friends.

Trinity had a wonderful time in Gina's loving home. We will definitely be back.
Gina was lovely, taking on our pup, Jules, at the last minute. Jules was well cared for, taken on a couple walks/adventures each day and barely wanted to come home!
Gina is awesome, I'm a big fan and so is Cooper :) Friendly, attentive and professional. I always feel confident and calm leaving my little boy with her.
Gina is great! We met at her place, and my older (and kinda large dog) got along with her immediately. Gina was very welcoming, and patient. While we were away she sent photos and updates. I had to extend the trip and she was able to accommodate him a little longer, which was very nice. My dog wasn't hyper the way he often is after boarding, he seemed to actually have a vacation too. I am going to go with Gina again.

Gina was a great host for my pup Henry. She was easy to communicate with, and had a great setup at her house for the dogs she occasionally sits for.

She also has a great dog-friendly cat, who got along great with my dog, despite him never having been around a cat!

I highly recommend Gina!

Gina was great with my medium/large dog Odie - he enjoyed his stay, and she texted me many pictures of his smiling face all weekend.
Gina was a great host! Apollo came home happy and sleepy which means he had lots of attention :) She was also good at keeping us updated with texts and pictures !
Gina is AWESOME!!

She was sweet and loving with my little guy. He spent a week with her and he came back happy and didn't loose any weight ( which usually happened when staying at dog hotels)
She kept me informed everyday how he was doing and sent me cute photos which made me at ease.
I would highly recommend her any time. My guy will be staying with her again for sure.

Gina was amazing and took excellent care of my pup when I was out of town visiting family. She was warm and welcoming and we felt very comfortable with her. I got some great pictures of Bandit while I was away too!
Gina took great care of Mickey! He came back happy & relaxed. I would definitely book with her again.
Our dog loves staying with Gina. She was given plenty of exercise and attention.
I have recently starting working with Gina and so far it has been a wonderful experience. She is passionate about animals and it shows in how my dog reacts to her: he LOVES her! I appreciate her attention to detail and communication.
Gina was very sweet with my old dog and was willing to be accommodating to her needs. She gave me updates on how my dog was doing and was very flexible on pickup/dropoff times.
I could not have asked for a better experience!!!! If I could give 10 stars I would. Gina is is exactly what you hope for when you are looking for someone to care for your pup while you are away. I had the peace of mind while away knowing that Ollie was loved, cared for and got plenty of exercise. I got plenty of updates and pictures and returned home to find Ollie appearing as he had been on vacation himself. Thank you Gina!!!!
