About Gina

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
. "Give your dogs a vacation not a kennel" Hi, my name is Gina. My husband Jim and I retired a year ago. We are without pets right now. I have owned cats and dogs all my life. I accept all types of animals. Lots of love and individual attention will be provided. We make sure the dogs get a daily walk or 2. We have been on dogvacay for a year now and it has been a great experience. We love the dogs.
My cost is 35.00 for 24 hours per dog. If you pick the dog up after 24 hours then I add the daycare charge of $25.00. No drop offs before 7:00am and no pick ups after 9:30pm.

Gina is an awesome caregiver!! She really understands dogs. After a short Meet & Greet with her, we knew she was the one for Ruby. When we took Ruby for her stay, she couldn't wait to get in the door, then jumped into Gina's arms! Ruby is a 1 1/2 yr old Mini Aussie who is loving, eager, curious & cautious. We boarded her in past at places that had multiple dogs & Ruby was anxious a lot of time. But not so at Gina's! Gina is warm-hearted & very attentive to each dogs needs, even when more than 1 there. In her loving, positive, supportive & INTUITIVE WAY, Gina knows how to introduce new dogs to each other & insure they are good playmates/companions while in her home. They get individual attention & dog group attention from Gina & each other in a safe, supervised environment; as well as alone time if that's what each dog needs/desires. This was great for Ruby! Watching her with Gina & with the few other dogs there, she was having a great time! We WILL BE BACK & Highly Recommend Gina to everyone.

Gina took care of my Maltese, who is pretty hyper...as well as coming to my house to feed and play w/ my cats. Great job...she is very warm and personable and has a great set up at her house to keep small and large dogs separate, as well as a lovely fenced-in backyard.
She sent text messages and photos to keep me abreast...all in all, a great experience...highly recommend!

Gina took care of my dog (Gwen) for an entire month and when I got back Gwen was as lively as ever and looked great. I was traveling internationally and my cell phone couldn't text in that country so Gina took the time to write emails to keep me updated. Thank you Gina. I only regret my next trip conflicts with your own vacation.

Gina was a great experience for Teddy he loved it there! He got his walks and loved all the other dogs he got to meet. Teddy's dad got updates and photos almost every day. I would not hesitate to recommend Gina to any parent.
I want to thank Gina and Jim for taking such good care of my two dogs. They were patient with the dogs during their first time away from home and with the nervous "mom" as well. My dogs are going back several times and I feel very confident that they will be in good hands and well loved.

Our somewhat anxious 7 year old absolutely loves her time with Gina and Jim!
Gina was a wonderful host for our dog Dutch. She was quick to reply to all our requests, flexible and available on short notice! Dutch had a great time, enjoyed the other dogs, and Gina clearly loves dogs and cared wonderfully for him. We'll definitely use her again!

Gina was professional and kind. Her home was very clean and welcoming. She accepted my request with short notice -- which was so appreciated!
Gina was fabulous!!! My dogs were instantly at ease with her. She sent me texts with pictures everyday and gave me quick updates on how they were doing. They had a great time and it was such a relief to know they were being so well cared for. They will definitely be going back when we go out of town again!

Gina was very quick to respond to our request and we were able to setup our drop-off and pick-up of our dog within a very flexible schedule. Kip seemed to have a great time and Gina sent several pictures of him with his new friend a beagle named Bella! I will definitely send Kip back to stay with Gina on our next trip away.

You guys were great! Thank you so much. My furbaby was so happy to be there she almost didn't want to leave.
Gina took very good care of our dog, Teddy, while we were gone. We received regular updates and pictures so we didn't have to worry about him. We would use her again for sure!
Gina and Jim were a great match for Enzo. A beautiful home with a great backyard and a very nice area for those much deserved walks.

Enzo is only 7 months old and we were concerned about he would be with new faces and places but he was very comfortable both when we dropped him off and picked him up. I would highly recommend Gina and Jim to be an excellent choice for your buddy!

She was great w/ my disabled pup. Super conscientious and gentle. Highly recommended!
I'm new in town and feel very thankful to have gotten a recommendation for Gina! Gina and her husband watched my dog Sophie recently and made her feel right at home. I could tell that they really bonded and that makes me so happy. The hardest thing about having a dog is having to leave them but I now know she has a second home with loving people who will treat her like their own. I'm actually excited to bring her back to them the next time I need help.

Many thanks to Gina for treating Sophie like family!

I cannot say enough good things about Gina! I was anxious to leave our special needs dog for the first time for nearly a week. Gina made it so easy! She sent me frequent updates and took care of him like he was her own. I was able to truly enjoy my vacation because I knew my dog was in great hands! My dog is extremely high maintenance because of all his issues, and she was so gracious about it. There isn't a better sitter out there!

My senior pup Sera has had issues with conventional daycares and boarding houses. She's losing her sight and hearing, so being around a lot of dogs has become too overwhelming. Thankfully, Dogvacay has been the perfect solution for us.

And Gina is absolutely wonderful! She's flexible, responsive and cares for my dog as though she were her very own! She gives her lots of attention, always makes sure she's walked and fed, and is fantastic about staying in touch with photos and texts. I'm so happy to have found her!

Gina was awesome! My girl Bailey can be nervous at first and Gina made her feel so comfortable. Gina is great with dogs and provided such a loving home for Bailey while we were away. Thanks Gina!
Our dog's first stay with Gina was just an overnight "trial run" to see how our Ivy girl would react to being away from us and to reassure her that we would come back for her. Well, I have no reservations about having Gina watch Ivy for us when we are on vacation later this month. Gina took wonderful care of Ivy. Ivy especially loved being able to chase the squirrels out of Gina's backyard! Gina is our DogVacay host from now on!

Our two dogs stayed with Gina for two weeks and Gina took great care of them. She sent us daily updates on their activities, and even sent pictures of them everyday. Gina and her husband are a wonderful and caring couple, and I'm so glad to have found them!

Gina was great with my dog. She not only sent me text updates but told me how she was taking her for walks. I feel that Gina really cares for the dogs she takes care of, that they are part of the family. When I returned Gina gave me a welcome home card with photos of Delia during her stay. I'm counting on Gina to take care of Delia when I'm gone next time.

Ruby, our slightly anxious 7 year old beagle/lab mix, had a grrrrrreat time at Gina's house! 5+ Stars!
I am so excited to write this review about Gina, she was such a wonderful care giver for my pets, she came by daily to look after them and give them special love and attention. She kept me updated while I was out of town, sent pictures and even left me a special Halloween gift when I returned home from vacation. I look forward knowing I have Gina to babysit my fur babies again in the future! Thanks again!

Gina & Jim were wonderful. I felt really good about leaving my dog with them for 13 days. They didn't disappoint. They took great care and sent me pictures and updates on how my dog was doing. I would use them again and definitely recommend them to anyone. Thank you Gina & Jim!

My somewhat anxious dog, Ruby, had a great stay with Gina & Jim. They are flexible, communicative and met all of Ruby's needs!
Gina is simply, wonderful. Our dog Sammy was so well taken care of, and this helped my husband and I have the best vacation knowing that he was in good hands! Gina sent us pictures and periodic updates on how he was doing during our week long stay. She even took darling pictures of our dog and made a little memento of his stay. We are so thankful for Gina and the great care he received!

Gina was great. She took our 'little old lady' dog Gracie that is almost 14 for 4 days while we went down to SF. Gracie can be kind of a little pill sometimes, since she is a senior dog and she has been on steroids for a while, so she can get grumpy with other pets and children. So, Grace was able to be the queen while she was there and she is even invited back. That's a bonus for a geriatric dog that takes medications, some times eye drops, and is a slow walker, who sleeps a lot. Thank you Gina.

This was the 1st time Rascal went to a dogvacay. The time he was there was great. What didn't make me worry for the day he was there is when we arrived to the house he ran right in to say hi to Gina and her husband. It told me that he wasn't scared or nervous. Thank you Gina

A very nice couple and glad we used their service.
My two dogs are both over 15 years old so they need extra care and attention. One needed to be taken to the Vet right away for treatment and medication while they stayed with Gina. Gina handled it all like a pro. I felt like my dogs were being well cared for. She sent me e-mail updates everyday on how they were doing and how one was responding to his new meds. I would definitely recommend Gina as a competent, caring pet sitter.

Gina provided Sadie top-notch care. She not only sent me texts to let me know how Sadie was doing, she also kept a log of Sadie's activities and new adventures at her home-away-from-home. When I picked Sadie up tucked inside her travel basket was a beautiful 5x7 picture of Sadie--I was thrilled. I have great confidence in Gina and will definitely use her again.

We seldom leave our 13 year old Chocolate Lab, Hershey, especially now that he is having a lot of health issues and is on medication twice a day. When we went to Zion National Park, we left him with our vet, so that we could be sure he was well cared for. A few days into our vacation, we got a call from our vet saying all dogs had to be removed from their kennel due to an upper respiratory outbreak, and shouldn’t be around other dogs, as he had been exposed to the virus. We were so fortunate to find Gina! She had no other boarders at the time, and was even willing to go pick Hershey up from our vet. We were so worried that Hershey would be traumatized by having to stay with strangers, but when we arrived a few days later, it was evident that Hershey had made himself right at home and had fallen in love with Gina and her husband. Gina made sure he had his medications, took him for walks daily and fed him lots of treats. Hershey looked so comfortable laying on his bed in their cozy living room. He gave them kisses goodbye and if I ever need to leave him again, I would leave him with Grandma Gina! Can’t say enough about her loving heart and willingness to help us through a difficult situation.

Gina took excellent care of our cat, Molly, while we were away. She worked with our schedule and even visited an additional time when our cat was feeling extra lonely. She also watered a few plants, brought in our mail and left us a nice 'welcome home' surprise. We'll definitely see if she's available again next time!

I highly recommend Gina as a dogsitter any time you might need one! She did a wonderful job with our pup, Linus. Before and during his stay she was very prompt and personable when replying to messages. Linus came home happy and healthy, obviously having received lots of one on one attention.

Gina was friendly, warm, and easy to work with. She even made a card with photos of my pup during his stay and included handwritten notes on his behavior and activities over the weekend. Linus and I can't wait for his next stay with her.

If you're like us, your dog IS family and you want only the best. It all comes down to the people involved. In the end you can't pay someone to care. That being said, I've never felt more at ease leaving my babies (aka, boxer pair) with Gina and her hubby. She's smart, detail orientated, and has a huge heart for animals. She was very attentive to understanding my dog's behaviors and open about anything I could share to facilitate an easy, comfortable stay while she cared for our furry kids. Scheduling, communication and the stay at her home went perfectly! She went the extra mile to make sure our dogs had what they needed. I even received a photo collage of their misfit adventures in her back yard AND a journal entry covering the times they were funny, and slightly out of sync (my female decided the chair was her bed). Butch and Willow both came back home tired and happy plus we were able to thoroughly enjoy our trip. Gina is now our go-to care provider, we fully recommend her!!! She is FANTASTIC!
