About Gabby

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Gabby, I have been dog sitting for over 15 years. I have fostered and rescued many dogs. I spend alot of my free time volunteering in animal shelters as well as hosting fundraising events for Animals,veterans,k9's for warriors..., etc..

While your dog is in my care they will be loved and cared for in a fun environment catered to meet their individual needs. I have experience with with special needs dogs,senior dogs, blind, deaf, high anxiety and even those who are afraid of thunder! Your pet will receive the individual attention that kennels cannot provide in an environment that feels just like home.. My home is safe, clean and comfortable.

I am Available to accommodate last minute emergency visits ,short term stays ,even extended stays.

My home is your pets own little resort. I provide plenty of belly rubs, fun, friends, and play time! I am Local to dog parks and dog beaches. I have a Fenced in Bark Park with plenty of lush green grass to play in!

Proud owner of a beautiful German Shepherd Named Bruno who was rescued on 4/26/2015. Bruno is a Service animal in training, originally Bruno was rescued with intention to rehabilitate and re-home him but after 6 months of nursing him back to health I couldn't say goodbye. He is very playful and loves anyone that will play with him.

He is NOT AGGRESSIVE! I will only host other non aggressive dogs as well

I wish I could rescue every animal in the world but since I cant... I love the company of other dogs and that is why I enjoy pet sitting. Plus,
Bruno loves to socialize and make new friends...

Feel free to browse through my profile on FB for pictures of my home, past guests, as well as reviews from very satisfied customers who were once a first time customer just like you!

Highly recommend- we've used a few dog sitters and Gabby has by far been our best. I've been nervous and stressed about leaving Ana with someone, but I felt assured and confident that Gabby was well experienced and knew how to make Ana comfortable- which let me enjoy our family time. Ana is 9 years old and gets nervous in new places and usually won't eat. When we got Ana back, she wasn't worked up like she usually is- and she ate, which says a lot. Ana isn't around other dogs too often, but Bruno was calm and well behaved and Ana was immediately comfortable. We are so thankful to have found an excellent dog sitter. Finding good pet sitters is always a stressor, but I am so happy to know we have a place Ana is welcomed and cared about when we vacation in Florida. Thank you, Gabby. Sincerely, we really appreciate it!
Gabby was amazing with our doggies. She kept in touch and also sent pictures and videos. I felt at ease with her taking care of our 2 doggies. We will definitely continue to use her in the future.
Gabby was amazing! It was my first time using her and I will definitely use her again. She stayed in great communication and made extra stops even though she did not have to. She cares about what she does and is a first class sitter. A++
