I have found Gillian to be extremely care with pets, she treats each as her own. She seems to have an uncanny ability to relax them and make them feel at home. I would highly recommend.

Please read my earlier review from September 2016 which really says it all.
Today’s review (10/30/16) refers to my 13 year old peekapoo’s (Peeka’s) ten day stay with Gillian. Upon our arrival, Peeka walked right into Gillian’s house with her tail wagging. It was like she was visiting old friends again! She must have remembered her two prior “test” overnights!
This time, Gillian said Peeka adjusted very quickly --- which was such a relief to hear since she normally suffers from separation anxiety (I am her 4th owner). Gillian was reassuring --- when I called to see how things were going, she always sounded happy to hear from me. I think Gillian and her pack enjoyed having Peeka as a guest.
Peeka looked well cared for and happy when we returned to get her. Gillian did some extra things that I didn’t expect --- for example, she took Peeka (who loves the car) to her favorite dog park, gave her a bath, and even washed her bedding.
Although my dog is Gillian’s first “client” via dogvacay.com, Gillian has had plenty of prior experience with her own small dogs (one of whom is elderly) and has helped other pet owners. She is a true animal lover. She is a personable, bright and caring person --- all personality traits that help make her an exceptional pet sitter. I hope she will be available to have Peeka as a guest again soon.

Picture this: As I drive up in my car to take my dog home, I see Gillian with my dog and her own dog walking on their leashes near another neighbor and his dog of the same breed. My dog is wagging her tail, sniffing around with the dogs and looked very happy and energetic. I was so delighted to see this.
My dog stayed with Gillian, her sweet dogs and kitty for 2 days as a test run in her bright clean townhome. My dog is a 13 year old Peekapoo with severe separation anxiety (from 3 prior owners) --- my husband and I almost thought we would never be able to go away without taking her with us.
By the second day, Gillian and I decided she was starting to relax and settle in more --- I attribute this to Gillian’s sensitivity, caring and extra attention --- How many sitters would share their own bed with a dog they barely know as Gillian did? ! I knew that my dog was Gillian’s sincere priority via her questions, conversations and attention/reference to my detailed written summary of my dog’s habits and idiosyncracies!
As I read here in another review, you can tell how good your dog sitter is by your dog’s behavior upon returning home --- well, my dog was happy, content and adjusted right away. After interviewing many other dog vacay sitters, we think Gillian is the perfect one for our dog.
