Our dog Molly felt very comfortable with Gemma and her family. Molly can be a bit skittish and has her quirks but Gemma was awesome with her. Her pups are very sweet too. We already have our next visit planned with her
Very sweet family. Cooper was very well cared for and happy while we were on vacation. Gemma sent lots of pictures and video updates as well!
Gemma was great. Our dog was well taken care of and fit in great with her two labs. We got several photo updates while we were away to let us know our Emmy was enjoying herself.
Gemma was awesome! Our dog Charlie loved his stay and hardly wanted to leave. He was exhausted when he got home. I would highly recommend Gemma and her family to any pet owners. We loved that she gave us updates as well! Perfect stay for our pup!
I was out of the country and Gemma took great care of my dog for almost a full month! She worked around her medical needs and sent me photo and video updates. Whenever I decide to go on vacation in the future, I'll be sure to contact her again!
Our dog Charlie had a wonderful time at Gemma's house. They went above and beyond expectations for us, and we are truly grateful for that. We were across country, so having Gemma send us updates was wonderful! By the time we picked up Charlie, he seemed as if he didn't even want to leave! My wife and I would gladly recommend them to anyone! They did a great job watching our little buddy.

Gemma and her family took great care of Chopper and sent me pictures so I could see how well he was doing as it was his first stay with her. I'm very pleased and will use Gemma again!!
Luna had a great time at Gemma's. Receiving photos and videos throughout her stay gave me peace of mind. She'll be back!
Gemma was amazing. She sent us pictures and videos while our puppy stayed with her. She was very accommodating and our puppy seemed sad to leave. I will book with her again!
Gemma and her husband were awesome. I think Sophie had a great time. I didn't worry about her at all. Gemma kept us updated and followed all my diet instructions for my fur baby. She even let Sophie snuggle with her and burrow under her blanket on the couch. I was so happy with her stay I'm asking Gemma to watch her again. Thanks so much for the peace of mind.

Great as always!
Our dog was well taken care of. Gemma updated us with daily pics! Will definitely go back!
Gemma did a great job with Doak. Would definitely take him back there next time I go out of town.
Gemma was awesome! I was very hesitant to leave Samson since he's never really been boarded. He did so great and was very relaxed when we picked him up. Gemma sent us photos while we were gone and we felt so comfortable leaving him with her!
Our dog, Bella, stayed for the first time with Gemma and family this past weekend. We will never send Bella anywhere else but here unless bookings are already full. Gemma was very responsive, sent us a few videos, and our dog came home the most relaxed that we've ever experienced!

Our little guy has never been left and we were so apprehensive. He's just a little spoiled. Our experience with Gemma has been beyond excellent! We felt so welcomed and comfortable. Her home is so dog friendly and I can honestly say Rudy became family immediately! While I had complete confidence while we were gone, Gemma kept me updated, sent pictures and a video. We have found a new friend and hope to have Gemma in our lives for a long time. Rudy was a happy boy when we picked him up!

Gemma and family are awesome hosts! Your pups will feel right at home, with walks, treats, hugs and play time.
Gemma and her family provided a loving, safe home for our two pups when we traveled out of town recently. Our two lab mixes felt right at home from the start, getting along nicely with the resident pup. Gemma handled everything from the feeding schedule to daily meds, treating our pups as if they were her own. Pictures of the girls playing or laying about helped put our thoughts at ease regarding how they were doing in a new environment. You can rest easy that your dogs are in good hands with Gemma and her family.

Gemma took wonderful care of our dogs and we will definitely use her again in the future! She was very responsive to our messages on dogvacay's website and was flexible about our drop off and pick up times. She emailed us a questionnaire to fill out beforehand and saved it, along with a copy of our dogs' vaccine records, for when we use her again in the future. Her chocolate lab was so sweet and excited to see our dogs and they started playing right away. She has a nice backyard for the dogs to play in and her house is very dog friendly. She even let both of our dogs sleep in her bed which was so nice! Overall, Gemma was a wonderful dog sitter and I would definitely recommend her to others!

Gemma was awesome and took great care of Tilly! Tilly seemed very comfortable in Gemma's home and got along fine with Chuck, their resident lab. I appreciated the pics and video that she sent to keep me updated and she even took Tilly on little field trips!

Gemma was very accommodating and clearly took great pride and care in the service she provides to her clients and their dogs. Communication was great and the updates during the stay were much appreciated. Given the opportunity presents itself; we would again trust Gemma to watch our pup.

Thank you!

Gemma was awesome! She watched Penny over Christmas and treated her just like a member of her family. Penny even got a Christmas gift! I got several updates with pictures and cute messages from Penny, and a video of Penny opening her gift Christmas morning. I was nervous and sad about leaving Penny for Christmas, but Gemma and her family made me feel super comfortable and I know Penny was well taken care of. I would definitely recommend Gemma to anyone and will be using her again in the future!

Buddy got to spend Thanksgiving and the weekend with Gemma and family. I made her dog and Buddy some doggie ice cream and Chuck wolfed his down as buddy took a few days to eat it (I think there was too much excitement). Gemma was awesome in giving me videos and pictures of my baby each day. Buddy was even treated to a Thanksgiving feast that night, dog park adventures, play time, treats, snuggles, etc. She is my GO-TO dog sitter for Buddy because I know when I leave them with her and her family that he will be treated like a member of her pack. Thank you for taking such amazing care of my boy, he came home a very tired and happy camper but I think he misses Chuck :). See you guys for Christmas sitting :).

Gemma did a wonderful job watching Samson! I will certainly schedule with her again. Her dog Chuck was great with Sammy as well and I'm sure they had a great time. Gemma sent several text to keep me informed and sent pictures of Samson having a great time. Thank you Gemma!!

Maya was well taken care of. Gemma sent a number of photos and video so we didn't miss her to much while on our trip. Highly recommended.
Gemma is just wonderful! This is the second time we left Zoe with Gemma and I was completely worry free during our trip. I really feel like Zoe was treated like a member of their family! I was so glad Zoe remembered their house as soon as we arrived and was completely at home. I would not hesitate to leave Zoe again!

We loved our experience for Peyton at Gemma's house! She sent frequent updates with pictures to let us know how Peyton was doing. Highly recommend Gemma and will definitely use her again in the future.
Gemma is awesome! This was my pups second stay with her and they were excited to get there! She loves them like her own and caters to their individual needs. So thankful I found her and will continue to use her services.
Gemma was FANTASTIC! We needed an extended vacation (3 weeks long) for our puppy (6 months old) on very short notice, and Gemma really came through for us. She was highly responsive - we corresponded via email at great length before our visit (we live outside of Ohio) - and extremely accommodating. Our puppy was not yet fully trained, so there was high risk for accidents and chewing, but still Gemma was absolutely delighted to have her come and stay with them. Gemma and her family took such wonderful care of Wrigley - we received lots of photos and videos along the way during our travels (we were outside of the country and so grateful to see updates any time we had access to our email) - and she corresponded also with my dad so that I could receive updates through him as well. She continued to work on training, took Wrigley to the dog park so she could continue to socialize with other dogs, and just did everything to help Wrigley settle in and have her own wonderful vacation. Thank you Gemma! If we ever need doggie care in this area again, we will certainly call Gemma!!

This time we did just daycare. Gemma was available even on short notice and she was even watching another dog so Buddy had more doggies to play with. SO glad I left him with Gemma because we were gone from the house for 10+ hours and Buddy had so much fun, playing at the dog park, getting ICE CREAM and ruff housing :) at the house. Thanks Gemma, we will be back.

Oh where do I start. Gemma, her family and even Chuck were very welcoming even on our meet n greet! We dropped Buddy off Thursday with the pick up date being Sunday since we were going on vacation however our vacation got cut short and Buddy only got to stay one night. I can't beleive how flexible Gemma was with us! She was so sweet, sending me pictures and updates, taking the dogs for car rides and such. She had a great shaded back yard and let the doggies have the run of the house. She even made Buddy some homemade veggie treats AND taught him to use a doggie treat giver (some really cool gumball machine that spits out treats). She made me feel SUPER comfortable leaving my kiddo with her. I will 100% be using Gemma again to watch Buddy.

Gemma was awesome! She sent very cute pictures and videos of my dog having fun. I would not hesitate to book with her again.
My dog, Maggie, loves going to Gemma's, especially to see her friend Chuck, another Lab. Thanks for giving Maggie such a fun play date!
Gemma was wonderful! We left 2 dogs with her and they did great! One of our dogs was on 2 medications and is a picky eater. Neither of those things phased her. She took it all in stride and loved our dogs like they were hers. The dogs settled right in and seemed to feel at home. She kept us updated with pictures while we were gone too! We've already booked her again for another dog vacay! Highly recommend!

Gemma was very friendly and willing to be flexible with our pick up time so that we could enjoy a day at the museum and have dinner afterwards without being rushed. Our dog, Jasper, enjoyed his stay with her. We plan on having Gemma dog sit for us the next time we are in town.

Wonderful care of our dog, worry free!
Gemma was wonderful! From the moment we met at a meet and greet I felt completely comfortable. Zoe is 8 months old and can be a bit timid in new situations, so I wasn't sure how the meeting would go. Zoe and Chuck had such a good time playing together, and Zoe acted like she was at home! Gemma was very flexible with drop off and pick up times, and kept us very up to date while we were away with pictures and videos of Zoe. Zoe was treated like a member of their family. This was the first time we left Zoe with anyone, and I felt relaxed and worry free while away for the weekend. A wonderful experience!

Gemma was available on short notice. She provided excellent care for my dog, and she was flexible when I was running late at pick-up. We will use her again!
