About Gini

43 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Serving Reno, Spanish Springs, and Sparks NV, bring your well behaved dogs to enjoy the beautiful Palomino Valley. On a hill we have a very large yard that looks over the valley. The yard is fenced with 6 ft. chain link and pavers are set all around the perimeter. Our yard was designed solely for the comfort and safety of yours and our dogs! We live on 160 acres that have built in hiking trails for us. A doggy door gives entrance to the house anytime the dog chooses. If your dog sleeps on your bed, then your dog sleeps on my bed.

I am a semi retired obedience trainer and dog show exhibitor. I was very successful in breeding and showing multiple Best of Breed winners and a multiple Best in Show and Specialty winner. I am very proud that I put obedience titles and championship titles on my dogs. They're not just pretty faces!

I have been involved in boarding/showing and training dogs for close to 30 years. I bring a lot of experience to the table!

I do offer bathing. Price depends on size and breed of dog. I have a wonderful grooming room for this purpose.

No pick ups after 8:30 pm. No drop offs before 7:30 am.

Wow, what a great experience! I went to burningman this year and found Gini to watch over my best friend Poem. Her place is such puppy paradise with so many fluffy sweet friends to play all day with. Gini speciallizes in behavior training so I was especially impressed by how well everybody got along. Gini is definitely lead dog and it makes for a 5 star puppy retreat in my book. If I lived in Reno, Gini would always be watching poem anytime I go out of town. For sure. I highly recommend her! Highly♥️
Gini was absolutely fantastic!! She put more time, care and attention into our dog than I ever expected! She kept me updated with photos of him and of how much fun he was having! And what fun he had!- Gini's home is more like a vacation hot spot for dogs! He loved it! My dog was loved on and cared for and treated like one of her own. I should mention that my hyper, anxious German Shepherd is stubborn! I worried that whoever I would leave him with would not know how to handle him...HA! She's like a gifted trainer!! She was loving yet firm. I knew during the meet and greet that he would be in great hands!! Thank you Gini for taking such great care of my (furry) little boy. Anytime we leave town, we'll be reserving you!! You're a blessing to our family!
Gini, was so great with Danger . He has never been away from us. She sent me updates on how he was doing . Will definitely be using Gini again!
Gini is wonderful! She knows dogs and has a fantastic set up, her yard is a paradise for my dog. Gini took great care of my dog, ensured she got her medication, kept me informed and sent pictures of my dog making herself at home. I know my dog is safe and happy with Gini!
Gini was absolutely terrific. We were able to bring our two puppies (7 and 8 weeks) to her for New Year's, pretty much a last-minute request. Gini was totally enthusiastic and helpful. She is very flexible with time and, most importantly, she truly cared about our puppies. We had no problems leaving the young pups with her for two nights, and they came back better trained than we had left them! She was also very knowledgeable with dog care and was enthusiastic with sharing that information with us. Finally, her house is doggy heaven. All in all, highly recommended. We will be asking for her services again in the future.
Gini is fantastic! She cared for my blind, diabetic small terrier with love and compassion. She was very knowledgeable of Lucy's special needs. Her home is Doggy friendly and provides a perfect setting for a Dogvacay in beautiful Palomino Valley.
Thank you Gini & Frank.
Gini was amazing! Very knowledgable with dog language / body language. Kept me apprised by sending photos which helped ease my worry. Dogs enjoyed their SPA vacation as I came back to both my dogs having been bathed! Nice treat! Thank you Gini! My dogs are happy!
Gini took very good care of my boy while I was out of town. She is knowledgeable and has a few dogs of her own that kept my dog company. I was able to enjoy my time away without worrying about whether or not my dog was in good hands. I highly recommend Gini if you are looking for a dog sitter.
Gini is amazing! She was very accommodating with our last minute reservation and changes we were making on a go. Tequila was greeted with Gini's own very friendly and mellow dogs, immediately checked out whole house and backyard and was ready to play. While we were skiing, Gini emailed us pictures of Tequila running around backyard and when we picked her up, even gave us a Christmas gift. I felt confident that Gini could handle any situation and would recommend Gini to any dog's owner.
