About Gaby

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love dogs! I own two of them, a Yorkie-pom and and a Chihuahua mix. I work from home so I have a lot of time to dedicate to the furry ones. My daughter is already grown so now my dogs are my babies. I know how worried I get when we travel and need to leave them behind. I want to make sure they're very well taken care of. To me looking after a pet is a serious business, so I'll treat your baby just as it was one my own!

I live with my husband, my teen daughter, two dogs and a cat. We all love animals!

We accept any breed (under 20 lbs) that are non-agressive and friendly with other dogs (and cats). They need to be current with their vaccinations and on flea treatment. Preferably potty-trained.

Thanks for considering Mimi's Doggy Daycare as an option for your furry friends. Feel free to contact me for more information.

Gabi was so kind and awesome. She took in my dog at the last minute and calmed me down cos I had never left him with a sitter. Would definitely use her services again
Gaby is incredible! We went to do and meet and greet first since we are new to anyone outside of family watching our dogs. She was warm and welcoming and I knew that we made the right decision. The first visit was nice, one of our dogs was scared and a little snappy but Gaby got her to soften up. Will definitely be using her again.

Gabby was awesome
Third stay with Gaby! She was excellent as always. Sends video and picture updates. You can tell she really cares about dogs! Thanks again Gaby!! She was also very accommodating to our late arrival back in town.
We had to go to an all day convention for 3 days in a row, and Bella was still potty training so we didn't want her to have to hold it too long during each day. We dropped Bella off for a stay over a few nights, and Bella looked extremely comfortable going back to Gaby's house. This time I met her husband and daughter as well, who apparently Bella was also quite happy to see again. She and their dog Niko also started playing immediately, while their other dog sweet Juanita looked on. This is a great family of people and pets and a happy little haven. I don't even think Bella missed us one bit! :-) Gaby is our first choice any time she is available.

This was our first time leaving our new puppy somewhere else, and I was also new to having a dog in my life. We needed someone to watch Bella during the day since she was still potty training and we needed to be gone for training all day long for a whole week. Gaby and her family were awesome and our puppy Bella looked so happy to see her every morning we dropped her off. She sent pics and videos so we knew how much fun she was having. I picked up a few good tips from Gaby, and Bella slept very well each night after playing with Niko all day!

Second time using Gaby to take care of our pup. Super nice and you can tell she loves animals. Thank you Gaby.
Gaby was awesome! Took great care of our dog. She has friendly dogs who welcomed my dog into their home. Gaby sent us pictures and video of Buckee while we were away. Would definitely use her again for this!! Thank you!!!
This was our 1st experience with DogVacay and it was excellent. Gaby did such a wonderful job and kept us updated daily - which was very comforting. We had never left Gigi with anyone outside the family but clearly from the pics - Gigi had a very good time. i will definitely be using Gaby again. Outstanding job !

I was so lucky to find Gaby. She and her family are all animal lovers. They are so warming and an inviting family. Gaby has lots of room for pets to run around. They took excellent care of Two Bit. He was happy, this mattered. Gaby sent me pictures of how he was doing. I told Gaby "Yall spoiling him." I will be signing Two Bit up for doggie day care with Gaby. I was totally PLEASE!!!

This was the first time that my pet Two Bit had been left with out his family. He was nervous at first. I was concerned and Gaby understood that. She sent me a picture of him being cuddle by her daughter. This made me very happy. Gaby's and her wonderful pets/family was great with Two Bit.

When I requested Gaby for these dates, she let me know that she and her husband were going out of town but that her daughter was watching their dogs and didn't mind adding Ronnie to the mix. I said that would be totally fine, and it was. Everyone in this house loves dogs. I really appreciate the pictures throughout the stay (mostly for my fiance's peace of mind). Thanks again!

We could not be happier with Gaby and her husband. They were responsive when making the reservations, communicative on drop off and pick up days, and she made sure to send pictures to my fiance throughout the trip because she knew he was a little nervous about leaving Ronnie for the first time. Just amazing.

she was very accommodating in fulfilling my last-minute request to take care of Bailey and she provided an environment that i felt was very comfortable for my dog...i would definitely go to her again!
Gaby is an amazing host. She looked after our dog for 2 weeks at short notice. It was the first time we had used dogvacay but Gaby made the process easy and stress free. She sent regular photo updates and kept us up to date with what was going on. My dog looked so happy and like she'd had a great time when we went to pick her up. Gaby has a great space for the dogs to run around and her two dogs got on really well and played so nicely with mine (especially playful Niko). Her cat was great with my curious dog too! Gaby and her family really did treat my dog like one of their own and I'm so happy she was so welcomed and loved. I highly recommend Gaby to everyone!!!

I was planning a trip out of town and had chosen Gaby to be my host. Her backyard is like a heaven to the dogs. It is huge and spacious which my dogs really seemed to have enjoyed. The day we were suppose to drop off my babies at Gaby's, I was in a rush and had forgotten their food and treats at home. I didn't realize that I had not supplied Gaby with dog food and found out when we got home with the dogs. I had mentioned to her that I had forgotten it and apologized. She was more then accommodating and reassured me that it was not a big deal and that they had more then enough dog food at home. She was sweet enough to send me pictures of Socks and Hanna, and even posted some of their pictures online. I have found my go to pet sitter when I am in need, and I am very glad it was Gaby. You will not worry about your pups when you leave them with her!

Gaby and her family took such great care of my chihuahua Poppa!! He really enjoyed being able to run around in her large fenced in back yard and playing with her two little ones. She updated me and sent me pictures of him playing and lounging around the house every day. I would not hesitate to let her take care of my baby again the next time I go on vacation!
