About Gina

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I would love to care for your pets while you are away. My passion for animals is stronger than anything in the world. I have always loved all animals. I am hoping to open my own Dog Day Care in the future. I have 2 dogs and a cat. The older dog, Nylah, is very vocal and playful; She is shy at first, but comes around quickly. My other dog, Oakley, is still learning how the world works and he loves to play! My cat stays out of the way, but is very sweet when he comes out.. I spend a lot of time with the pets that I watch. I love going for walks around the neighborhood, and I go to the dog park nearby on nice days. We have lots of toys, a dog bed, and a porch potty on the deck. I love to be around animals. I will administer medications if needed. I write daily report cards so you know how each day went. I can also send pictures. I guarantee your pets will have a blast staying with me!

My holiday rate is $45/night
My puppy rate is $42/night
My holiday rate for visits are $22/visit
Second dog rate is $34/night

Drop off and pick up times are scheduled between 8 am and 8 pm. If you require an earlier/later drop off or pick up, I may be able to work with you but I do charge an extra $15.

Real life saver. I was in a serious bind and was moving out of the state. Gina was there at the VERY last minute to come by and take care of my fur babies while I put out life fires. Would definitely use again if I had the chance!
This was our first time using a dog service. After meeting Gina I felt comfortable having her come to my house to walk the dogs. I loved getting the photos of the dogs. I will definitely use Gina again.
Gina was great! My puppy was scared and nervous when I dropped her off, but tired and happy when I picked her up. I loved the pictures Gina sent throughout the day.
Unequivocally the best experience ever - if there was a 10+ star rating, Gina would unquestionably receive as many stars as possible! She was super awesome with Holly with daily hand written notes, texted pics and given the fact that when we went to pick Holly up after her wonderful stay, it was as if Holly was saying, "Can't I stay a little longer? Pullleaseeee??" Unlike previous boarding experiences that Holly had, when we got her home (aside from seeming a little sad that she had to leave), Holly was not experiencing any social trauma from her boarding experience - we may not wait until the next time we need to head out of town to take Holly to Gina's...Maybe just a day visit so Holly can enjoy that special bond again. The fact that Holly took to Gina so much that she jumped up on the sofa and cuddled up to Gina within 24 hours of being there is indicative of Gina's warm and welcoming energy (Holly definitely noticed it as did her Doggy Daddy - Gina is super awesome with humans too!!) Highly (HIGHLY) recommended!!

Gina did a wonderful job. This was my first time using a service like this and I'll be using her in the future. She went to my house and fed, watered, and played with my dogs while I was gone. She even sent pictures as proof, which was the best.
Gina was great with our dog. She responded quickly to our questions, sent us photo updates, and genuinely cared about Charlie's well-being. I loved the report cards at the end of his stay! Yes, I recommend Gina for your pup's vacay.
From our first on line contact with Gina to our meet and greet and Bubbys entire stay at Howl a Day Inn I was confident that we had made a good choice. Bubby is a 7 year old Golden Retriever and this was the first time he has ever stayed with anyone besides family while we were away. Gina kept in contact with the whole family via group chat. We all looked forward to our updates each day. Upon our return Bubby was happy and looked great. He told us he had a very nice time. Thanks again Gina. Would both recommend and use again

Gina did a fantastic job with Maggie, going above and beyond by sending pics and updating us on her status every day. As an added personal touch, she even spent extra time and filled out daily comment cards that gave them to us when we picked Maggie up so we knew exactly how Maggie was each day and how she got along with the other dogs. We would absolutely book with Gina again!

Gina was an awesome pet sitter!!! She appears to genuinely love animals which is very important to me when leaving my pups with someone they don't know. I have 2 pups, larger lab mixes. We had a meet and greet prior to their stay. During their stay, Gina sent me pics/video clips at least 3x a day to keep me updated on how they were doing. This was important to me and help me to see how my dogs were doing. She also provided daily update sheets on their eating, temperament and restroom habits. They also had a ball with her pup Oakley! I think they missed Gina's house when we got home. No worries, I'll definitely be booking her again!

Gina was awesome! She sent me daily texts and pictures to assure us that our dog Olive was fine. Will definitely use this service again and highly recommend Gina as she was easy to work with and was obviously very pet friendly. Thank you Gina!
Gina was amazing! Our dog can be a bit shy in new situations, but he warmed right up to her and her pups. She sent plenty of updates, and graciously put up with my check in texts to see how he was doing. I will definitely be bringing my pup back to Gina the next time we need someone to keep an eye on him!

Gina was really great with both my dogs. They were very comfortable and had lots of fun. She also sent lots of pictures and updates. It really made me feel better about leaving them. I will definitely use her service again!
Outstanding stay for our dogs! Gina was super friendly, her home was easy to get to, and the dogs loved the stay.
Gina was great to our rambunctious German Shepherd while we were gone! We had Gina for 5 home visits over the weekend, where she fed, played with and let her out to potty. Gina came for a meet and greet to meet Bella and see where all her supplies, food, etc were located in our home. Gina's very friendly and kind. She helped us short notice and I will be sure to use her again. Loved getting pics of our dog from Gina while we were gone!

Gina was great! My dog Kodi wasn't eating his full meal so I told her that meat could be added and I would pay for it - she had already started cooking the chicken. He had no issue eating then. I could see that he had become comfortable at her home in the daily photos she texted.

My previous Vacay hosts had moved, and I was so pleased to find Gina for my shy and nervous dog. I received updates with a photo every day, and a "report card" for every day when I picked her up. Gina was a pleasure to correspond with, and my timid girl seemed to have had a very good time. It's so nice to have the reassurance that your furbaby is in good hands when you have to be away, and I know I have a reliable place to care for her during future trips.

Charlie had so much fun spending the week with Gina and her 2 dogs! She sent me pictures and updates daily. I know he was well taken care of and she treated him like one of her own pets. I will definitely be using her again in the future!
Gina took my dog wally from 10:30 to 7 on a Saturday and was wonderful. No issues and even received a text message picture update. Will definitely be using gina again next time I'm in town!
My dog molly had a great stay with gina. I would use her again she sent up dates and pics of my dog it eas a good experience
Gina was excellent! She took great care of the dogs, made sure to keep us updated with pictures and messages during our trip, and even went out to get them more medicine when they ran out. I would highly recommend her and use her again to take care of our dogs.

Gina was great with coco. I felt very comfortable with her and she also sent update pics. I will be using Gina in the near future to look after coco.
Gina provide awesome care for my buddy Hank. Making sure he had plenty of play time to include a trip to the dog park. Daily photos and updates were provided through out his stay. From the pictures Gina provided, I can't really tell who had a better weekend getaway, Hank or me. When I picked him up he was happy and worn out! Ha
I would highly recommend Gina for any of your upcoming trips!
