About Gina

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to the Magee Family Bed and Biscuit! We are located in Spring City, PA. It is run by me, Gina, my husband, Jeff, and our two children. We started dog sitting in the summer of 2013 because our own dog, Finn, had passed away a few years prior and we weren’t ready to get a new dog of our own and our children really liked having dogs around. We have found that dog sitting really works for us!

Our house is clean, kid friendly & pet-friendly. We have a beautiful fenced yard. I love to walk and try to take the dogs for a long walk each day when they are here. We keep all dogs leashed when they are outside of the fence unless the owners tell us otherwise.

One of the questions I get asked most often is “Do you let them sleep in your bed?” The answer is yes! We treat them just like they were our own dog. Really, we follow your lead. If you want them to be allowed on the furniture, we let them. But if the rule at your house is no, we stick to that. If your dog is used to or prefers a crate, then please bring it. We don’t have crates here and won’t crate them unless you tell us they need it or like it. You bring their food and toys and whatever else they need with instructions on when and how to feed them. We want the dogs to feel like this is their vacation home!

I work two days a week. On those days, Jeff almost always works from home. So there is almost always someone here. We go out just like normal families but on most days someone is home most of the day.

We have really enjoyed getting to meet and interact with all of the different dogs we have had in the past year. It has also helped our children get used to dogs and be more comfortable meeting new dogs. I call our son the little dog ambassador because he just LOVES them and they usually love him too. We have a photo album of the dogs that have stayed with us and our kids love showing it off. Let me know if you want to see it when you visit. Overall, we are just a family who loves dogs and the dogs seem to know it when they get here! If you have any other questions or concerns, please just send me a message and ask. Thanks! Gina

Mac's second home....so lucky to have this family watch our dog. Just awesome.
Our beagle Marissa enjoyed her stay - she was extremely well cared for. It was great to be able to enjoy our vacation and not worry about our pet. I would highly recommend entrusting your dog to Gina.
Gina and her family were wonderful! She is very thorough and organized, leaving me with peace of mind while my pup was away.

We received photo updates, and he received plenty of belly rubs! He slept wonderfully after we brought him home from all the fun.

We are lucky to have found so a convenient location for while we're away, that is safe and secure. We will be back!

We are over the moon about Ginger's experience at Gina's home. Not only did Gina provide excellent care for Ginger but she also provided a safe place for doggie socializing. Thank you GINA for treating Ginger as if she was a part of your family. Ginger will DEFINITELY be a repeat vacationer!!

Gina and Jeff are absolutely fantastic. My two dogs had a great time and were not as excited to see me as I had hoped. Gina periodically sends updates throughout the stay and very easy to talk to. The updates involve pictures of the dogs during walks, during nap time, and just general dog vacay stuff. I highly recommend Gina and Jeff if your looking for someone to trust and take care of your dogs while you're away. Thank you guys!

This was our first stay with Gina. Her family took very good care of our dog. We were happy to find someone who catered to smaller dog breeds. It was nice for our dog to have other doggie house guests to play with during his stay.
I have 2 very happy and tired boys right now! Gina kept us up to date every step of the way. Thanks!
As always, MAC had a great time with Gina and her family. We wouldn't want him to stay anywhere else while we are away. Thanks!!!
I want to say an enormous thanks to Gina and her family for taking such great care of Diego! Diego had so much fun there I don't think he wanted to come home. I loved all of the photos and updates while we were away. I did not have to worry about a thing. Can't wait to come back again soon! Wonderful experience overall, thank you again!

Gina takes excellent care of Lucy!! We never have to worry about Lucy when we're away. We would highly recommend Gina.
Our boys, Ferris and Persy had a wonderful time with Gina and her family. This was our first time going thru DogVacay. The boys have been boarded at a kennel a couple times before and we're wild when we picked them up. When picking them up from Gina's they seemed happy to see us but we're very relaxed and not at all wild. Gina texted us pictures and updates throughout their stay. We will definitely be using Gina again.

Won't even bother looking for someone else to watch Mac (as long as Gina and family are available!)....

Thanks!!!!!

Leo had an excellent time with Gina. Gina and her family made Leo feel part of their family and it was great to see some amazing pics and updates from Gina on Leo acting like one of the kids at their daughter's sleep over party or just enjoying a nice treat. Thank you for caring for him like he was your own.

My dog immediately felt at home and they took excellent care of him. They demonstrated a desire to make sure every need or requirement of my dog was met. He was happy and content when I picked him up. Would definitely board with Gina again!
Her and her family were very easy to communicate with and flexible. They took great care of Rascal and we would definitely use again
Thank you Gina and your family for watching Lucy. You take such good care of her and we don't worry while we are away.
Gina and family treat Max as a part of their family. He is the same dog when he comes home as he was when we dropped him off. No behavior issues or problems. Gina is very competent and a wonderful host.
Gina and Jeff were simply just awesome....from the original meet and greet request to the amazing hospitality offered to our dog Mac. We would recommend them to anyone in need of a caring, loving home for their pet. We will certainly be using them again (as long as there is vacancy!).

Thanks again for such an amazing option to a "caged" kennel visit that Mac used to have to endure.

Gina and her family were great as always. I can trust that Foxy will be taken care of and loved when we're away.
Gina and her family were great. Foxy had a great time with another dog she was hosting, and she was very well taken care of. I appreciated the photos that Gina sent during our vacation. :)
Max had a wonderful time with Gina and her family. He was well taken care of and the whole family adore Max. We will definitely use Gina again.
Our Mickey had a great time with Gina and her family. I would highly recommend you have Gina and her family look after your dog.
Gina and family essentially adopted Max for his stay. He enjoyed his vacation from us. He enjoys visiting and staying with them.
Gina and family were very accommodating toward my 11yr old dog and his odd sleep patterns and his herding mentality.
I highly recommend Gina and family for your pets home away from home.

This was our first time leaving Porter with anyone other than a family member. From the initial contact, Gina was quick to respond, answered any and all questions, and eased my worries about leaving Porter. She asked for a detailed schedule and had several questions for me as well about Porter. Drop off was simple! She had his schedule posted and was warm and receptive. During Porter's stay, Gina texted updates and sent ADORABLE pictures of Porter having a blast!! Our favorite text and picture was "Porter getting ready to make s'mores!"...everyone on vacation with us enjoyed the updates of Porter's time with Gina and her awesome family! Porter was well loved and played with in Gina's care. When we picked him up, Gina and Porter were waiting on the porch for us...great touch! Porter was bathed and EXHAUSTED!! We will be using Gina again without a doubt! (We have already recommended her to our friends!!)

Thank you Gina, Rex had a great time and was well cared for. We give 5 stars!!
Thank for taking such great care of Lucy and for sending the picture while we were away. She came home exhausted! We highly recommend you and your family to anyone looking to board their dog. We were very happy. See you in July.
Arya seemed to have had a good time with Gina and her family. Gina was very quick to respond to my last minute request and she gladly accommodated Arya. Would highly recommend Gina and her family.
We booked with Gina last minute when our original plans for a dog sitter did not work out. She was very responsive and communicative from our first inquiry.

Prior to our Vacay Gina would send us messages and let us know how excited her kids were. This put us at ease as we knew our dogs would be getting plenty of attention.

As we pulled up to Gina's house her daughter was in the window peering out. She started jumping up and down when we took the dogs out of the car. This really sealed the deal for us. We knew that the dogs would get so much love and attention, that they would not have time to miss us.

During our vacation Gina sent us very cute pictures of the dogs playing dress up with her kids. It was nice to be on vacation and not have to worry about the dogs.

We will definitely be using Gina and her family next time we go away.

Dear Gina & Jeff, Thank you very much for taking great care of Rex while we were away. The pictures were a great treat. It looked like he was having a lot of fun with your family. It is greatly appreciated. Regards, Dave & Lisa
Gina and her family treated Max like their own pet. Max was exceptionally well cared for. My whole family sends an exceedingly large Thank You to Gina and her family. I would highly recommend her. Pam R
We had a great experience working with Gina. She was a pleasure to work with and her kids loved our dog. Highly recommend Gina!!
Gina & her family were wonderful! My year old Morkie stayed with them for four days. We were super nervous because it was her first time staying somewhere without us but she had a great time playing with the kids & we recieved daily picture updates from Gina. We would definitely hire her again!
