About Roberta

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome! If you're like me, your dogs are members of the family. When you can't be at home to look after them due to work, vacations, business trips, or other obligations, you want someone you can trust to provide the care and attention they need. That's where I come in.

About me and my background: I have owned a Pit (deceased - cancer), and I have raised 2 Boxers from puppies - both are pictured (the larger one is deceased - cancer, and the smaller one is still with me, now 11 years old). I have volunteered at animal shelters and my primary focus was on dogs. I am working on my certification in animal behavior and I will continue from there to, hopefully, lead me to owning my own business someday. I live in a 13 room Victorian house with an enclosed back yard that is kept clean. The third floor of this house is open and has minimal furniture which is great for doggie play time indoors. There is a beautiful terrace out front which, in the warmer months is filled with flowers and a nice water fall/fountain which allows nice outdoor time for humans and animals alike. I posted pics, but they really do not capture the beauty of this street.

We have had our puppy stay with Roberta several times and he loves it. He gets so excited when he sees that we have arrived at her home. He loves running around and playing with her pup Hunter.
We could not have been happier with Roberta. Our puppy Teddy absolutely loved staying with her and her dog. He didn't want to leave when it was time to go home.
Roberta is so awesome!! Able to handle my hyper boy in any setting! Patience of a saint! Thanks for all that you do!!
She welcome both us and our dog with warm open arms and a smile. It wasnt awkward at all like I thought it would be and her dog and mine got along great. Not only that but she kept us in the loop by sending us pictures here and there during the hosting so we didnt have to worry once about how our dog was doing! I will definitely be using this service again and roberta is our go to. Thank you for your kind service roberta, your husband and hunter!

Wonderful lady! Kingston was perfectly at home and was treated to lots of walks and fun with Hunter. She is very flexible with scheduling and so warm and welcoming. Kingston was snoring when we got home because he was so tired from all the fun. Great place for your pups!

Roberta is Wonderful!! She is calm and patient with a great manner. She has a knack for animals and certainly appreciates the little things about each one! My Bently loves hanging out at Roberta's and playing with her dog Hunter! Roberta pays close attention to the dog's needs and allows them to be active throughout the day. She is very welcoming to people and dogs alike by allowing them into her beautiful home and graciously giving the tour. She is flexible with schedules and very easy going. I would reccomend Roberta to anyone!! You can certainly leave your pooch there with confidence that they will feel as much at home as possible!

Great
My beagle Russell is always in great hands with Roberta. He is well cared for, gets plenty of exercise & attention, and absolutely loves being with her dog Hunter. I trust Roberta completely and have no worries or concerns when I leave Russell in her care. I would highly recommend her and anyone that does leave their dog (s) with her will be nothing short of extremely satisfied. She is the only one I can safely and confidently leave my pup with!

This is the second time I have used Roberta, and I can't say enough good things! She is kind, attentive, and an absolute dog lover. I feel absolutely secure in leaving my dogs in her capable hands!
Roberta was great! I needed someone at the last minute, and couldn't have been happier! She was great with the dogs, and Hunter (her boxer) and them got along great as well. Thanks again!!
Roberta is flexible and patient, and amused by doggies' sometimes bewildering behavior, which I so appreciate. She was enthusiastic about showing me and my Molly around her house so I could know the environment Molly would spend the weekend and so Molly could get acquainted with resident pup, Hunter. With a beautiful house perfect for dogs who like to roam, play, and nap, I highly recommend Roberta as your next dogsitter!
