Gigi was great. Took great car of Baxter and I could tell he was comfortable and enjoyed his vacay! Gigi sent me updates,photos and even a video. I will definitely use her again!
Gigi once again provided excellent dog care for our standard poodle, Leo. He is a charmer, but high energy and requires being "pilled" each day with very large capsules. Gigi was very game, and even told us a technique she developed for making the process easier. She was also very accommodating when we needed to extend the stay by one day. We would highly recommended Gigi.

The only reason I gave Gigi a rating of five stars was because I didnt have the option to give her more! She is amazing, plain and simple! I've never met another pet sitter that cares as much, loves as much, or works as hard as she does. I've used Gigi to watch my dog several times over the last two months. Two times for work, and two times for family emergencies. Many times these were on short notice, but Gigi accommodated me and my pup, and took such good care of him while I was gone. She kept me updated regularly, which is something she always does. During a week long trip out of town, my pup got sick, but I was never worried because I knew Gigi would care for him like he was her own. She took him to my vet, got him the medicine he needed, put him on a special diet, and he was better in no time. I can't say enough wonderful things about Gigi. There is literally no one else I would trust to look after my dog. She isn't just my dog sitter. She is family!

We're very thankful to have Gigi to be able to take care of our dog, Haley, while we're away. It's great getting photos throughout Haley's visit to know she's having a good time.
As always, Famous had a marvelous time! Gigi is the best.
Gigi is walking my dogs weekly. She is very communicative and provides excellent updates. She is reliable, responsible, and friendly. The dogs enjoy their walks. All are happy!
Gigi was great! Nigel came back happy and clean. I recommend.
Best dog sitter ever!!!
Gigi is wonderful. She has hosted our precious pup many times now. Gigi treats Sharmay like she is a part of her family. She sends us photos of Sharmay while we're away, and keeps us updated. On another recent visit, Sharmay had a medical issue which required immediate attention. Gigi rushed Sharmay to the vet, and made sure that they got the care she needed. We're just delighted.

As always GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gigi was able to take care of our dogs plus a friend's dog we were watching. She sent updates and pictures to let us know that everyone was fine.
I can always count on Gigi to respond quickly when I text her. So even if she's not available to watch my dogs, she's able to let me know so I can contact someone else.
Gigi sent me, like, 20 pictures of my dogs during her short visit. We loved it!
Gigi was excellent. She obviously llkes dogs and kept us updated with numerous pictures -- even though the stay was just one night. Leo, our standard poodle, clearly was well cared for and had a good time. We -- and Leo -- would be happy to have another engagement with Gigi.

Gigi is wonderful with my two hounds, Hannah and Ruby. She's also very flexible and can often take my reservations at the last minute. I don't know what I'd do without her!
Gigi was great. She came recommended by a neighbor. We were in a pinch and needed someone reliable on short notice and Gigi jumped right in. She was prompt in her communications getting us set up and confirming our schedule. She let us know every day when she arrived and shared updates on how our two dogs were doing and even texted photos from the walks. We look forward to working with Gigi again in the future.

Nikko is at home with GiGi. Always a great experience.
It's easy to tell that Gigi is truly a dog-lover. She treats our precious pooch, Sharmay, as though she were her own. She even sends us photos of Sharmay each day, letting us know how she's doing.

This was Sharmay's second stay with Gigi, and she definitely gets pampered. In fact, we've started asking Sharmay if she wants to go to Gigi's Bed and Breakfast. Sharmay doesn't say much in response, but that's only because she never learned English.

We've had to do more travel than normal lately, and have been glad to have a trustworthy, loving home for Sharmay while we're out of town.

I felt like my dog went to a spa while we were on vacation! Gigi is wonderful! She sent lots of photos and updates. I never worried and this was the first time my dog stayed with someone other than my good friend. I have a rescue that can be a bit timid with new people and dogs but she understood everything. A brief meet and greet before my stay was a good idea and would recommend it.

Gigi was great! She constantly sent me pictures and videos so I could see that my puppy was doing good. I think the best part is that she was accommodating to my dog's home habits. She texted to tell me that I forgot a bed or blanket for him to sleep on/with. I told her that my dog doesn't like beds or blankets because he usually sleeps with me in my bed or on the floor. When she dropped him off she told me that my dog slept in her sister-in-law's bed. I thought that was really sweet to let my dog sleep in a bed when she didn't have to do that. She truly made my dog feel at home and it was greatly appreciated.

Gigi saved us when our first placement did not work out, taking our pup in while we were very far away. He loved it at Gigi's, and we are tremendously appreciative. If I could give her ten stars I would!
Gigi completely saved our weekend trip to a friend's wedding after another dogvacay sitter had to cancel our reservation day-of due to a family emergency. Needless to say, I was freaking out a bit waking up to that email at 6am the day we were leaving town at 8, but I threw out some desperation email communications and Gigi responded. We had our dog to her by 8:30 or so (very convenient for us right off 495 near 95 N in MD) and he got along really well with the other dogs she was boarding (and her own dog Roxie). She has a fenced-in yard, which is a huge plus and I think the meet & greet on the fly really alleviated any concerns either party had, so off we went. We got constant pics through text and the dogvacay app of our pup, including a video, so we could relax and have a good time at the wedding. We'll be back -- thanks!

Gigi is always dependable, and this trip was no exception. I was hoping she could come by and feed my dogs that afternoon, but she was already booked (because she's great!). But she offered to come by that evening instead, which ended up working out great for us. She is always willing to find a way to work around our schedule, which is awesome.

Gigi is the absolute best! Our dog Yoshi stayed at Gigi's a few weekends ago and had such a blast he didn't want to leave. Gigi has an adorable 5 year old daughter who Yoshi loved to play with. He also got to sleep in bed with Gigi - just like he does at home. My husband and I got photo updates throughout the weekend, which we really appreciated because we missed our boy so much.

We would recommend Gigi to anyone - she is so great with dogs and really provides a loving environment in which they feel at home.

GiGi was excellent A HUGE pawsome indeed!
Once again, Gigi came through for me and my dogs in a pinch. This was a super last minute reservation. Luckily she wasn't totally booked and could squeeze us in for a walk and feeding. And judging by the pictures she texted, my dogs were very, very grateful. :)

Because of a last minute business trip on my end, I needed someone to walk my two dogs PLUS one dog that was visiting--not an ideal situation! Luckily for me, Gigi was happy to help me out and walk the menagerie. I am so happy I found her through DogVacay. My dogs and I depend on her, and we are never disappointed.

I was so, so pleased that Gigi was available for this visit because I was really in a tough spot. She responded immediately and was able to fit my dogs into her schedule. She is a lifesaver!
We found Gigi some time ago and have used her exclusively when we need to be out of town. The dogs simply LOVE staying with her and her charming family. Gigi is excellent at keeping the dogs active and loved. She is very easy to be in touch with and responds to emails and texts almost immediately. Gigi receives my highest recommendation!

Gigi is our go-to when we need someone to walk our dogs in the middle of the day. My schedule is hectic, and I often need to make arrangements for my dogs at the last minute before I go out of town or have all day meetings. This time around, I requested 3 midday walks and 1 evening walk and feeding. Gigi gracefully juggled her other appointments to accommodate us (it was, as usual, a last minute request). She sent me updates and pictures. She is awesome, and I totally depend on her!

Gigi and her family are unbelievable. Our dog loves it with them. They are kind and friendly and take great photos!
Gigi was amazing. I really can't recommend her highly enough. She has a nice home, conveniently located. Both she and family are kind and gracious. I had no doubt my 2 dogs would be loved and well cared for. Daily pictures and updates were delivered. I am well pleased.

Gigi and her family welcomed our dog bron over the holidays. They were amazingly kind and generous. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!
Gigi was a huge help to both Grady and I. She was very kind and understanding of Grady's slight separation anxiety. She even bought grady a rawhide to help comfort him. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
I can't say enough good things about Gigi. She is easy to reach and always available, even at the last minute. She always lets me know when she's at my house and when she leaves. She always sends me pictures of my dogs when she's there. And she always leaves a note telling me about her visit. In short, Gigi is indispensable, and I'm so glad I found her on this site!

Gigi is amazing! I was in a bit of a crunch when I looked at Gigi's profile online. I didn't think I would be able to find a dog sitter on such short notice. I have not found a quality kennel in this area, so I prefer to use overnight home boarders. Gigi accommodated my dog and I very well. She was able to take our reservation no problem, and made time in her busy schedule for an initial meet and greet. She walked us through her home, introduced Harley to her dog, Roxy, and let Harley get to know the surroundings before we dropped him off a few days later. I could not be more pleased with the care, love and attention Gigi and her family gave to my dog. Her prices are incredibly reasonable, considering the wonderful services she provides. She updated me with daily photographs, dropped Harley off at home once his visit was over, and left him with a wonderful toy to play with. He loved his time there, and I will most certainly use Gigi in the future. She and her daughter love taking care of animals, and provide the perfect environment for pets while their owners are away. Thanks Gigi! See you again soon.

As always, Gigi was there when I needed her. I made this reservation, for a dog walk and feeding, at the last possible minute. She responded quickly and accepted--I was so relieved! I came home to happy, fed dogs. Gigi is a lifesaver!
I am extremely thankful for Gigi's help in watching Zeus for me! Gigi kept me up to date with how Zeus was doing during his stay with her by sending me pictures and a note. It was a great relief to know that he was doing perfect while he stayed with her. In the past he sometimes won't eat but with Gigi he ate all his meals, which made me really happy! Thanks for your help!

Gigi was wonderful, and the dog sitting experience was fantastic all around. She responded quickly to my initial query and was able to make plans on very short notice. She came out to meet my dogs ahead of time and was very good with them. She texted me with updates during the day, sent me pictures of my dogs during her visits, and left me a detailed note about how the dogs did. I am so, so pleased that I found Gigi through DogVacay. It is such a relief to know that my dogs are getting good care while I'm away.
