About Gabrielle

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello,

My name is Gabrielle and I work with Furballs of America Pet Sitting Service. I will be more than happy to take good care of your pets while you are away. I majored in Animal Science and Business Administration in college and I have been caring for pets for 10+ years. I am a member of Professional United Petsitters, Certified in Pet CPR/First Aid, and I am licensed through Pet Sitter Associates (PSA).

During your pet's stay they will receive fresh food & water, playtime (either outside or inside) and plenty of love. I have turned 1 of my extra bedrooms into a playroom so your pet will have plenty of space to play and lounge. I have uploaded pictures of my clients and home.

If you are interested, please message me through Dogvacay.com.

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

I have not left my 7 year old Blue Lacy with anyone except a family memeber until this pastThanksgiving. We were visiting in the Memphis area and I could not keep her in the house we were staying in and miraculously, I discovered DogVacay and Gabrielle! This arrangement could not have been any more perfect! Gabrielle's home was a mere 6m drive through a lovely wooded area. The meet and greet was just right for us to feel comfortable with our pups enviornment in every way from physical space to first impressions when meeting someone new. Gabrielle is warm, thoughtful and secure! All the things my girl and I needed! We were even able to drive over and pick her up when we could pull ourselves from family and bring her out for the necessary and intense exercise focus her breed requires. Lucky was so happy when I returned her to Gabrielles house after just such a visit! She barked and raced up the sidewalk and with tail wagging peered through the glass! I felt great about leaving her there!. Thanks Gabrielle for making my unusual circumstance work out so perfectly! Lucky thanks you too!

Gabrielle was awesome with Marley! Marley really had a good time. I think he is ready to go back!
Let
Me just say this! Gabrielle is a very warm person and extremely confident in what she does. This was my first time leaving my shih tzu with her and it won't be my last. I didn't even feel the need to call while I was out of town because of the warm and great Ora I felt in her home....... I've found a permanent sitter for our pet.

Great job looking in on our cat during a 2 week vacation. She came by the house once before we left, asking lots of questions and taking lots of notes. While we were gone we got several pictures and one video plus notes on things such as changing litter and water. Best of all, Starbuck was in great shape when we got home.

I felt very comfortable about my dog's stay with Gabrielle. She is a conscientious and intelligent person and seems to truly care about the pets she tends. I will use her services again.
Gabrielle R. was a great 1st experience. Made everybody comfortable. Super Thanks. Lynn & Donna
Easy to pickup and drop off, and our dog seemed to love it. Very happy with the experience, will use again.
Very nice host. Dogs did great.
Our pup has loved his time at Gabrielle's the couple of times he's stayed there. A big plus is she usually has a few other guests for him to play with. She's been very accommodating for picking up/dropping off, too.
I used Gabrielle based on the reviews and I'm glad I did. She had a few other small dogs present at the time and I think that made it very entertaining for my Yorkie Bruno.
He was worn out when I picked him up. I would use this service and Gabrielle again.

We had a great experience with Gabrielle! We found her last minute and she was still willing to take our 2 pups! She sent me pictures of them while we were away and responded immediately to any text messages I sent. When one of them refused to eat she alerted me and then proceeded to try several different options with my dog until he actually ate. I really appreciated this as he is very skinny and anymore weight loss would be terrible for him!

Gabrielle is great. She watched my dog while he was on exercise restriction; she took excellent care of him. Now that he's up and running again, she makes sure he gets his play time. He's always excited to see Gabrielle.
Gabrielle was extremely nice to speak to and very helpful - she took great care of my two girls and was very understanding when I was delayed picking them up due to an accident.
Her house and yard are great for playful dogs and I think my pups had a better vacation than I did!

Gabrielle did a great job with my dog, you can tell she has lots of experience. Absolutely the best place to have your dog looked after when you're out of town. Have used twice now and am very happy. Used to use PetSmart doggy hotel and wasn't happy with how long my dog was locked up and how it cost more for "play days".

Prefer to use Gabrielle because:
-there are other dogs to play with
-Dobby wasn't locked up all day (or at all)
-there's a yard to play in
-Gabrielle responds quickly

Would absolutely recommend getting in touch with her for your dog sitting needs.

Our dog had a great stay with Gabrielle. She's a pro and it shows. Pick up and drop off was quick and easy. We'll definitely use her again!
Gabrielle was awesome! She was available at the last minute and Miles had a great day playing with the other dogs. He came back very tired. Thank you so much! I would definitely use her again!
Gabrielle was great! She is super organized and takes her job very seriously.... she doesn't just pet-sit on the side; it is her full-time job, and it shows!

Gabrielle took very detailed notes at our meet-and-greet and made sure she asked very specific questions about my dogs' typical routines and behaviors. She provided regular photo updates during their 10-day stay and paid close attention to one of my babies who suffered from a bit of separation depression the first day he was there. She even communicated with my mom about how they were doing when I was out of reach. Would definitely recommend her and would use her again! Thanks, Gabrielle!

She seemed very good with Dexter. Had a great time at the Memphis Zoo knowing that he was being taken care of...
excellent
Gabrielle is always very professional and does a fantastic job with our dog.
Wonderful shee is great
Gabrielle did a fantastic job taking care of Minnie. I will defiantly be using her in the future.
Gabrielle has successfully tamed my little wild beast who does not like to be away from home. She has helped to socialize Gracie and worked to gain her trust. We could not be more pleased with Gabrielle. and heartily recommend her.
Good job with my spoiled baby Harley! I wanted a one-on-one sitter. I didn't like how she would be "breaking down" the door to get to me when I leave her at kennels. I can tell she enjoyed her stay with Gabrielle!
We arrived in Memphis Friday with bad news from our scheduled host. They had to cancel due to medical emergency. We were able to keep Jayde at hotel with us but next day was going to be an issue as we needed a sitter. DogVacay sent out request and I sent out request for Saturday. Gabrielle was able to watch Jayde with only about 30 minutes notification. Jayde is very mild dog and we were concerned with another dog there that was an extremely hyper dog. Gabrielle isolated the dogs and sent picture of Jayde relaxed by front door waiting for us. A huge thanks for the 8 hour of sitting Gabrielle provided with no notice.

Gracie is fearful and can be difficult, but Gabrielle knew just how to make her comfortable. She had a great time and even "made nice" with other dogs. I would recommend Gabrielle to anyone.
She provides excellent care. Bitsy just loves her and is so excited to see her.
Gabrielle was awesome. She is an excellent communicator and my dog loved her. I enjoyed receiving the pictures that she sent to me during his stay.
As always, Gabrielle does an awesome job. She is attentive and makes sure to update me on my Sammy's progress daily. He is always excited to visit which to any Dog-Mom is a huge relief. I have been using Gabrielle for almost 3 years and have always felt extremely comfortable leaving my buddy with her.

Very responsive. BItsy was very happy with her. She gave me frequent updates.
Gizmo is always happy at Gabrielle's vacation home. She is attentive and knowledgable.
Gabrielle took great care of our pup who was not feeling to well while we were gone. She called us with updates, fed her special meals, gave her extra attention until we got back. Her experience and loving care made us feel much better.
All of my posts will read the same. As long as Gabrielle is available my two dogs will stay with her. They are loved, cared for, played with and secure in their world with her. WE love having her care for our canine family. Thank you, Gabrielle for loving our pups.....

Our dogs are always thrilled to arrive at Gabrielle's and we know that they will be well taken care of.
Gabrielle took wonderful care of our kitty, Patsy-Kat. We were concerned at first because she has dogs at her home, and our cat is extremely afraid of dogs. However, Gabrielle kept our cat separate from the dogs and pretty much let her roam in a couple of rooms by herself. Other boarding kennels wanted to keep our cat in a cage. Our kitty was cage-free and Gabrielle even walked our kitty outside a couple of times each day on her leash. We were so relieved to find such a great caretaker who was extremely attentive to our Patsy-Kat. Gabrielle is a first-class professional, and we would definitely want Gabrielle to take care of our kitty again if we needed.

Gabrielle was friendly, flexible and really good with my dog.
We were visiting from Pennsylvania and our little yorkie spent a day with Gabrielle.
As soon as I met her i felt that he was in great hands and she was updating me with pictures throughout the day. He loved playing with her Shih Tzu. Gabrielle was great!

A fantastic experience!
We were worried about leaving our precious schnauzer princess for 11 days. But when we came back she was happy, healthy and enjoyed bossing around Gabrielle just like at home! Our pooch will be back for another stay soon.
Betty and Beau cannot wait to see Gabrielle. She is loved by them. She is one of the most patient and calm persons that I know.
FANTASTIC
our little dog was well cared for. would recommend Gabrielle and will use her again for our next trip
Our schnauzer was shy at first but warmed up to Gabrielle quickly and was entertained by the other guest dogs. We'll use her again
This is the second time Gabrielle has watched my dog, Nessie. Nessie has a somewhat "difficult" dog personality, and Gabrielle does such a good job with her. I would recommend Gabrielle to anybody. She will do an excellent job watching your dog, and you can take your vacation knowing you can relax because your family pet is being completely cared for.

Gabrielle is great! My dog loves to stay at her house when I have to go out of town for work! Highly recommend!!
My dog's stay with Gabriell was fantastic. The daily communication was helpful and my dog came back happy, healthy, and energetic. Gabriell is very organized, professional, and takes great care of my dog.
Our coton de Tulears love staying with Gabrielle. Betty knows when we get to her driveway and pulls me to Gabrielle's front door.
Our Basenji mix has severe separation anxiety so we had to find a sitter that was able to be home pretty much all the time. Gabrielle only leaves for a short while to work out, but other than that he was out of his cage all day. The thing I noticed that really told me how well he was treated was that when we came to pick him up after a week-long vacation he barely acted like we'd been gone. Gabrielle did a great job accommodating for Jack and we will definitely use her boarding service again if we need it.

My dog was won over by her care for animals. He seem so happy and cheerful at her place. I would most definitely recommend Gabrielle for your pets overnight stay..Thnx
We had to leave town on short notice for a funeral. That sort of thing used to throw me for a loop, but I was able to make a reservation with Gabrielle online and drop both of my puppies off. I was not worried about them at all, and I got a report on them each day. She even washed their bedding for them. Great experience again!

Great experience again!
It was great. our little doggie seemed happy and well cared for.
As we were traveling through Memphis we wanted to take in a baseball game. Zona, our border collie mix, was much happier playing with Gabrielle and her pack. Gabrielle is great with dogs and I highly recommend her as a doggie host. Thank you, Gabrielle!

My Tootsie is very active and very bossy so it's nice to have a calm, patient person like Gabrielle to look after her.
We were extremely pleased with Gabrielle. Our spoiled little dog was taken care of very well. It was great getting pictures and updates on how she was doing. Will definitely use Gabrielle again.
This experience was better than I could have hoped for. Gabrielle understood my dog, and the other dogs in her care. They were so happy and really seemed to be having a vacation. I was a little nervous, because my baby is so busy and needs a lot of supervision, but Gabrielle managed to keep her happy and engaged with the appropriate doggie companions. It was great! I already recommended Gabrielle and DogVacay to my sister and people at my office.

Gabrielle was fantastic!!! My dog was ill, had to have oral meds and has severe stranger anxiety. Gabrielle was able to overcome each of these challenges and made my dog feel safe and comfortable. My dog was definitely in better shape when I picked her up then I could have ever imagined. One would not even know that she had been ill.
Thanks so much Gabrielle.

Betty is always excited when we pull into Gabrielle's driveway. She really likes going there.
Gabrielle was fantastic with my two little monsters! Maddie was shy from the beginning and didn't want to leave her kennel, but Gabrielle was extra patient with her and by the end of her stay she didn't want to leave Gabrielle's side. She was real patient with us as this was our first time using Dog Vacay. While we were away, I asked her how the dogs were doing and she immediately sent me a video of them; it was awesome seeing how much fun they were having with her. Thanks to this experience we will definitely be using her again when we go out of town!

Gabrielle is fantastic! Sammy loves her and all his playmates. She is a true professional and I loved getting the photos and videos while away for over a week. This is my second time using her and I highly recommend her!
We just picked Emma up from an 8-day stay with Gabrielle. She adored her! My daughter and I were anxious when we dropped her off last week because we were worried she would be overwhelmed with other dogs staying with Gabrielle's. She doesn't t have other dogs around at home. On the contrary, when we walked up to the house Emma was right there playing with a larger Golden Doodle, and barely noticed us coming. She had a ball! Gabrielle sent me photos everyday and I always had piece of mind that Emma was being well loved and cared for. We will definitely use Gabrielle again because Emma loved it!

Pippi enjoyed staying with Gabrielle and seemed happy when we picked her up. Gabrielle sent us lots of pictures and kept us updated on how she was doing. Pippi takes a lot of medication and it was nice to have somebody who can handle that well.
LOREK LOVES VISITING MS. GABRIELLE!!!! Before Lorek was able to stay with Gabrielle, he had to come for a meet and greet. Gabrielle was very sweet and really took the time to get to know Lorek.. She took very detailed notes about how I wanted Lorek to be cared for, and made sure she had a clear understanding of his daily routines and procedures. I found this to be very helpful and reassuring that my baby would be in good hands

While I was gone, she stayed in constant communication and sent pictures via text messages. I could tell that Lorek really enjoyed his stay. He enjoyed it so much so that he was sad when it was time for him to leave. He was able to make new friends, and now has a home when he's away from home!

She was so good to my dog that I ended up hiring her twice a week! Spending time at her loving bustling house filled with canine enthusiasm made my dog better behaved. Gabrielle is really kind and will go out of her way to make sure your dog feels at home.

Gabrielle was an awesome host! She loved on my Parker and spoiled him the way that I do. He's a puppy and I felt completely comfortable leaving him with her. Also, while I was on vacation, I received texts and picture messages updating me on Parker's stay. In addition to all of her credentials, Gabrielle was sweet and friendly. Her home was very inviting with the feeling of a doggie hotel. I will recommend Gabrielle to all of my friends and family.

Gabrielle was so sweet to our dogs through all the rain ! We want to stay with her all the time ...
Casey and Shelby had a great time with Gabrielle and her home pets. We loved the social interaction provided for our dogs. We are booking our next stay now. Our dogs came home happy and well cared for. Thank you Gabrielle.
We left Betty for 8 nights this time and were reassured by texts, photos, etc. Gabrielle does a great job communicating with us and taking care of Betty. Betty was so excited to return to Gabrielle's.
We were leaving Betty for the first time since we had moved to Memphis. We visited kennels, vet boarding, etc. and were not comfortable leaving her with any of them. We then discovered DogVacay.com and selected Gabrielle after doing a meet and greet at her house. We were so glad that we found her. Betty had a great time as evident by photos, movies, etc. sent to us by Gabrielle. We have already scheduled our next visit for Betty with her.

Maddie is our baby. Gabrielle listened to all of our crazy instructions and followed them carefully. She made sure we were updated- even on Christmas! I felt very safe leaving her there. Thank you!
I have used Gabriel on two occasions so far and I had very good experiences both times.  She would txt me with pictures and videos of my dog couple of times throughout the day during their walks or playtime.  I found her to be very reliable and a sincere caretaker.  I will be definitely using Gabriel any time I'm out of town!

Gabrielle was great--she let us drop the dogs off early in the morning so we could hit the road, and she was extremely responsive to my many texts asking how my "boys" were doing. She sent pictures and updated me regularly. Will definitely use her again!

Gabrielle took such wonderful care of my little Sammy. She was very insightful about some bowel issues that my little buddy has been having, and even went out of her way to get him some pumpkin for his food while we were away. He had a blast at her house. I could tell immediately that Sammy had a wonderful time playing with other dogs that she was boarding. She is very intuitive about our furry little family members, and I asked her if she would be willing to keep Sammy in the future because she took such awesome care of him. She was very accessible when I called to check on my little guy, and even sent us pictures so that we could see how well he was doing. He even got his own bedroom! I joked with her and asked if she accepted human boarders prior to my dropping Sammy off. If you love your dog like family, Gabrielle is the girl for you! She treats your dog like family while they are in her home. She is a gem, and I do believe that anyone that is hesitant to leave their pets while away, would most definitely find that Gabrielle is a most excellent choice!

Gabrielle was great! Nessie had a great time. Given that I have a dog with an "iffy" temperment, leaving her with somebody who has such extensive experience with dogs was very comforting. Gabrielle sent me frequent updates about how Nessie was doing. Nessie had a great time, and was happy as could be when I picked her up. I would highly recommend Gabrielle to anybody.
