About Gina

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
24/7 care for your pup! My name is Gina, I am the proud mom of two (2) amazing pups. I work with animals on a full time basis so your pup will receive plenty of hands on attention in a loving environment "just like home". I fully understand that leaving your pup in a strange environment can be stressful for you as well as him or her. You can rest assured that your baby is in the best hands with me. I have assisted in rescuing & placing several animals in forever homes and I recently attended Animal Behavioral College (obedience and shelter dog training).If you are searching for an animal lover, search no further. I offer sitting, walking and drop in services for dogs of all sizes and ages. Additionally, I am CPR/CPCR and First Aid Canine/Feline Certified. Please contact me with any questions, special requirements or requests for references. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you both soon :)

Gina is awesome! Loves my dog McKenzie so much and always accommodating!
So flexible, accommodating, and awesome with my pup. Definitely recommend highly
Gina was great with my rescue pit mix. Her love and compassion for dogs is apparent:) I will absolutely keep Gina in mind if/when I need a dog walker in the future.
Easton had a great time! Thank you so much for being so flexible with pickup.
Gina was wonderful! Dogs had a great time:) thank you.
This was our dog's second stay with Gina, and she loved it. Our Ophelia is over 16 years old now, mostly deaf, and starting to lose her sight, so she gets anxious about new situations. But she was immediately at ease the first time she met Gina. For this vacay, she bounded right up the stairs and in the door - quite happy to be back (her sense of smell is still going strong!). I'm so glad to have found Gina; it's so much easier to enjoy your vacation when you know your dog is having a good time, too!
Gina is the best. My pit bull Juju loves her n her dog Lucy. Gina knows so much about dogs and she made me feel great about leaving Juju with her
What can I say... Gina is awesome!!! Lazarus has a great time every time he goes.
Bella loved her daycare stay with Gina. It was like she was in her own home. Gina sent pictures of Bella and it was nice to know she was enjoying her time. She usually doesn't want to go to day care but she was excited to go back the second day. I would highly recommend Gina to anyone looking for a pet sitter for their dog!
Our lab Cecil had such a great time at Gina's house while we were gone. We were out of the country and arranged for Gina to pick up and drop off Cecil to and from our house while we were gone, and she made us feel so comfortable in knowing that he was well looked after with plenty of texts and photos. We'll be using Gina again if we get the chance!
We messaged Gina last minute when our normal pet sitter, had a family emergency and could no longer care for our fur baby. Gina anwsered all of our questions honestly and relaxed all of our worries about leaving Cami with someone new.

We set up a meet and greet, to make sure it would be the right fit for both us and for Gina and her pup. From the moment we met in person and saw how much Gina cared for not only her dog by her true love for animals in general, I felt more at eased and relaxed. We received updates and photos through out the week.

Cami came home, happy and tired from all the extra walks and play time she got! Gina truly loves what she does, and the dogs that she cares for. We Have already decided Gina is a our new go-to (replacing our old dog sitter) when it comes to dog care!

Thank you soooo much for the love you have shown Cami and our family!
Gina is just amazing! Lazarus had an awesome time during his stay. So much so, he didn't want to go home. Can't wait for his next stay, I know that he will be good hands.
Gina was wonderful all around. She was very responsive - from the initial booking request, to my numerous questions along the way. We did a meet-and-greet beforehand, and she was very professional, and friendly too. During the actual vacay she was very accommodating to my dropoff and pickup times. My dog is on the old side, and just needed basic care (as opposed to wild adventures) while on vacay, but I got the distinct impression that she was very content staying with Gina! I don't have a single complaint, and neither does the dog! I'm pretty sure just about any dog would be happy with a Gina vacay. :)
Our dog Dasha is a little on the anxious end, but Gina worked with her patiently until she felt at home. Dasha came home happy, tired and is excited to go back every time.
Gina and Lucy were great with my dog Roo. Gina sent text and picture updates, and Roo came home tired and happy. Looking forward to using Gina again in the future!
I'm a first-time dog owner, and Gina was the first dogsitter I ever used outside my circle of friends. Gina was AMAZING and completely put my mind at ease. My dog Piper is a rescue and naturally fearful but she instantly warmed up to Gina and the other dogs. She had such a great time the week I was away. Piper came home happier and healthier than ever!
I love that Gina sends pictures daily of all the adventures that Tucher is having!
Gina, I just want to let you know my Akeelah had a great time with you and Lucy. I would absolutely recommend Gina to anyone. She took pics she kept me informed about Akeelah daily and she worked with my schedule. I would definitely use Gina again. Thanks Gina
Gina was very understanding regarding my pick up time and then the change in plans required when my flight was delayed. Tucher looked like he was having a great time in the photos she sent. We will absolutely use her the next time.
Gina works with and takes care of dogs full-time and genuinely loves what she does. She is reliable and understands dog behavior. My dog who has separation anxiety was very comfortable in her home. She has two dogs who are easy going and friendly.
I would definitely use her services again.
Once again, Gina did a wonderful job caring for Hamish & Emily. When we returned, our mutts were happy to see us, healthy, and well cared for. Given the turmoil that Gina has experienced over the past few months, we were very pleased with the care and flexibility that Gina again demonstrated. Our reservation was last minute and required some jockeying to get the mutts dropped off and picked up again. Gina sent us pictures of the dogs and was responsive to my requests for status updates. I would not hesitate to leave Hamish and Emily with her at any time in the future. In fact, we plan to leave them with her again when we go to our timeshare next spring.
We are always very satisfied with Gina's care and service.
Booger had a great time at Gina's! He made himself at home right away. And he really enjoyed being around Lucy. I loved getting the pictures that Gina sent, it really helped to ease my worries about his separation anxiety (which he had none of while there). I will definitely use her again the next time I need a sitter.
Despite overwhelming personal site problems caused by environmental storms, Gina was wonderful. She went out of her way to help us. Our dog seemed very happy when picked up. This made us all very happy. I recommend highly.
Poor Gina had a horrible house issue occur and had to move just before taking care of McKenzie into the city! But even without a backyard, she made sure to take McKenzie out for walks everyday and keep her safe.

She kept in touch by cell phone with texts and photos of McKenzie with her dog and the others she babysat. Gina was great with McKenzie and had her for a week and a half with no problems.
Gina is wonderful with Harley, and he and Lucy are crazy in love. As soon as I turn down her street he gets excited knowing where he's head to.
This is a tag on to my previous review. Hamish and Emily were very well cared for by Gina. She listened to our concerns and focused some efforts to establishing a common-sense routine that our dogs did well with. Also, our dogs sleep with us, so she allowed them to sleep in her bed as well. I am sure they did better than they would if they had to sleep in a crate. That is, she worked with us to ensure their routine at her home was as similar to their routine at home as was possible. When we picked up our dogs, they were healthy and happy to see us. I will not hesitate to leave them with Gina again, when the occasion arises!
Gina did a great job with our two furbabies, Hamish and Emily. It was the first time we'd left the two dogs with anyone for any length of time. She responded to my text messages and sent us pictures of the mutts during our absence. The dogs were well cared for and we even received some advice to improve their behavior at home. She was knowledgeable about dog behavior, their reactions to their new situation and surroundings as well as getting along with her other dogs, temporary and permanent. She wanted us to be as comfortable with her keeping Hamish and Emily as she wanted them happy and content. She took what time was needed to answer our questions and concerns, both during the "meet and greet" visit as well as when we dropped them off and picked them up. I also believe her prices were fair and she was candid with us about any question we could pose. I would not hesitate to ask Gina to care for our dogs again, whether it be for daycare or for a week (as this time).
We were very happy with the care our dog, Brody, received from Gina during his two night stay. She is a caring person who loves what she does. We were sent photos each day. Her dogs are very friendly and get along well with others. Her home is clean with a secure fenced yard. We will not hesitate to leave Brody in Gina's care in the future.
Gina was absolutely wonderful with my 1yr old Siberian Husky! This is her full time job so I was confident that my dog was getting all the attention she needs. Gina was extremely flexible and easy to work with. I received lots of pictures throughout my trip as well as texts updating me on my dogs stay. My dog loved having Gina's dogs to play with and Gina's home is EXTREMELY dog friendly allowing lots of running and play room. Gina's services gets 5 stars!!
Gina is the best dog sitter available! This is her full time job and she takes it very seriously. Gina takes time to get to know you and your dog. She doesn’t rush you and will happily answer any questions or concerns you may have. The care, safety and comfort of the dogs in her care are Gina’s top priority. Gina is flexible! Tell her what you need – pick up/drop off from your home, special feeding instructions, favorite blanket or toy – Gina goes out of her way to accommodate any special needs or instructions you may have. All you have to do is ask.

Without asking, Gina will send text messages and photos to reassure you that your dog is happy and having a great “vacation” while you’re away.

We feel fortunate to have found such a wonderful care giver for our dog. We now travel worry-free because we know our baby is having a great time at Gina’s.
Gina is great and knows dogs which really puts your mind at ease. She treated my Wash like he was her own and Wash loved having other dogs to play with. So glad she was able to take us last minute. I am sure Wash is looking forward to seeing Lucy again.
Gina was GREAT! She took the time to show us, me and my four legged friend, around the house and yard before I left. When I finally did leave my dog was smiling as I walked out the door. While I was gone she sent updates and pictures to let me know how my doggy was handling the fireworks. Thank you Gina, Matilda misses you!
