About Giovanna

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Giovanna and I'm hoping to use DogVacay to help some families out with their dog when they can't. I've had about 4 years of experience in mostly dog sitting where I would either go to the homes of the pet or they would come to me and I would feed, walk, and keep the dogs company. I've pet sitted for mostly friends and family but this summer of 2016 I found a job where I went to New York to care for three dogs and a bird on my own. I was their sole caretaker for a month and it taught me a lot more about handling an older dog (17yrs), a dog with a seizure disorder, and another dog who couldn't jump on any surfaces on his own. I had a lot of responsibility but I knew I could care for them as my own and I did. I have been a pet owner for 4 years now and currently have two small dogs who are either at my home or my grandparents. My home is medium sized but good enough for dogs that are active and also like going up stairs. There is a pretty big backyard that I let my dogs out at in the afternoon mostly so they can get some air. I make sure to walk dogs at least twice a day and my neighborhood is very safe and active. I want to care for the pets here on DogVacay so they could get a fun experience while their owners are gone!

I would like to give my glowing recommendation and praise to our pet sitter Giovanna Ziani.

Giovanna was our pet sitter for over two years while we lived in Florida. We completely trusted her with the care of our baby Lester. Giovanna was not only honest, reliable, flexible, and available at short notice or emergency situations, she also showed enormous love and compassion for our pet. Often taking the time to sit and love them after a long walk in the park or around the neighborhood.

Lester loved Giovanna, looking forward to her visits they got excited at the mention of her name.

Her rates are very reasonable for the services she renders. In fact as a busy person who felt somewhat guilty leaving my dog in the care of another, I loved coming home to find Lester’s journal entries. We had complete trust in her being in our home and having access to our house key. Giovanna always did exactly what was asked of her and showed interest and knowledge in our pet, alerting me to potential medical or behavioral problems.

My dog needed the comfort of their own home as he was very stressed in a kennel situation. Giovanna relieved this stress on me and for him by providing exceptional service at an affordable rate. Her never ending love and concern for my dog will never be forgotten.

We moved to New York from Florida which is the only reason Giovanna is no longer our pet sitter. I would like to invite anyone with any questions or concerns to please send me an email.

Giovanna is a wonderful pet sitter/lover. She has taken care of my Maltipoo twice and accomplished every duty and responsibility that had to be done. She even goes above and beyond on her tasks. For example, she took my dog for long walks making sure he got his exercise, shows him unbelievable affection and was always by his side making sure he doesn't eat anything he is not supposed to. She also always kept me updated on how he was doing. Highly recommend Giovanna!
