About Gina

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**** Seniors Pets Get Discounts ****

Working with individuals and in doggie hotels, I realized the importance of giving one on one attention to your dog. Boarding Hotels are a great idea, but some dogs are shy or get overwhelmed in a high energy place, not to mention the lack of attention with so many dogs to attend to. I opened my home for those who want more for their furry child. Our pets get sad when we go away, so leave them with someone who understands the stress of being separated and guarantees so much romping, your pooch will be pooped and content. There is never a dull moment, unless winding down or a need for quiet time.

I have a huge heart for the older dogs and have first hand experience and patience needed to attend to the needs of a senior dog, as well as the undivided attention to the puppies. Working over the years I have gained knowledge in all areas allowing me to be a better sitter for you and your dog. I care for the well being of your pet. This is my life and work. I believe in spoiling your dog with TLC, exercise and encouraging growth from within them. Following your routine is a priority, so your furry kid is not interrupted with his/her schedule. I offer all sorts of toys for your dog to play with while visiting and have extra leashes for those much needed walks because a worn out dog is a happy dog.

For the human counterpart who is missing their furry family member, I offer updates via text, email and skype. I also have a Pet Cube in my home you can download the app and watch your pets when away. It's a relief to see our dogs happy and I want you to be a part of their vacation feeling rest assured your dog is having a pawesome time.

Will definitely use Gina again in the future! She kept me well updated and took great care of Nala. She really does everything she can to make sure your pet is comfortable.
Gina was so caring to my dog Sadie. She sent updates everyday, including videos and pictures. I felt such a relief knowing that Sadie was in such good hands!
We could tell Milo really liked his stay with Gina. Gina updated us on his stay by sending us videos of Milo playing with the other 2 dogs she was sitting. Would definitely use her again.
I felt very at ease when I first met Gina. And she really does know how to handle dogs that do like cats. She sent me a video of my dog with the cats in the same room and I thought I was going to see something frightening. But no, my Ruby was very calm around her cats. She didn't bother them or the other dogs at all.
I would tell anyone that their dog(s) will be well care for with Gina.

Gina did a great job for our dog's weekend visit. He needed some extra attention because he is a senior and was recovering from a hot spot. Would definitely book with her again.
Really knows her stuff! Got our dogs in the same room with a cat peacefully. Amazing!
Gina is very well set up and has multiple dogs for playtime. I don't think my dog realized I was gone. Got regular video updates and I felt very comfortable with the surroundings.
Gina was wonderful.
It's never easy to leave your dog with someone and for us, we were extremely nervous since Simon our doxie is 12 years old.
While we were on vacation, Gina sent photos and videos of Simon playing with other dogs and receiving lots of love and attention from Gina. When we went to pick him up, he was so happy to see us but I think if we gave him an option he would have stayed.
We will definitely use Gina again. She is wonderful!

I can not say enough great things about Gina's care of our dogs!! Our dogs range from three years old to 15 years old. Gina gave each of them the attention, care, and affection they need. We received text updates with pictures and videos. Those updates put our minds at ease and smiles on our faces. If you view your dogs are your "furry children", I highly recommend Gina's care.

Thank you, Gina! Louie most definitely enjoyed his stay. We will definitely be back. Thank you for all the picture/video updates.
Great Gina was fantastic. Our dog felt cared for and like a part of the pack! Thanks Gina for being there for our fur baby!
Gina was incredible, she made our Beau feel so good and included in her pack. We went to Charleston SC for the Cooper River bridge run and we enjoyed the run and knew Beau was having a great time too.
Gina was such a blessing to find! She took wonderful care of our Lilly and made sure to keep my heart at ease with plenty of updates. I can't thank her enough for the safety, love, and fun times she gave Lilly while we were on vacation. Gina's love, patience, and knowledge of animals shines... THANK YOU Gina!!

What a great experience! Gina was awesome about sending video and picture updates. She went the extra mile to make us feel like our little girl was in good hands!
Happy place for our 2 dogs. Gina is great- kept us updated throughout our trip with text pictures & videos. Will definitely return.
We used Gina for the first time last week and had a great experience. We started out only needing daycare and ended up needing a few overnight stays. She was very accommodating with our last minute changes which made things so easy. Remi came home happy and exhausted.

Gina was absolutely fantastic with my dog Maggie! She kept me up to date with frequent text and video messages, which I really appreciated! I think my dog really liked Gina because she didn't want to have anything to do with me when she got home because she kept going to the door to look for Gina! Will definitely use her again!

Gina was great with my dog Max! This was his first time with a dog sitter so I was a bit apprehensive, but Max seemed very comfortable with Gina. I would definitely recommend her and will use her again if I'm ever back in Charleston!
I was nervous, but I'm so happy that I picked Gina to look over Apollo! She kept me updated throughout the day and was so easy to connect and talk to. I will rebook without a doubt! I think Apollo had too much fun, he was knocked out within 10 minutes of being home

Charlie enjoyed her stay with Gina and friends. I'm relieved Gina wasn't upset when Charlie had an accident the first night - she gets excited and nervous in new places and Gina was so understanding. Thanks Gina. Charlie will be back.
Gina was great! My regular sitter cancelled at the last minute and I'm so glad we found Gina. She took care of my dog, and all of the other pets in her care, as if they were her own. Will definitely use her again as our sitter the next time we go on vacation!

Found Gina through DogVacay when we needed a dog sitter while in Charleston from Orlando for a wedding for 2 nights. Needless to say, we were a little apprehensive about it at first as we had never used anything like this.... but what a lucky find! She was wonderful! Our 2 dogs immediately went to Gina as if they already knew her...she's like a dog whisperer! She also sent us photos and videos during the 2 days and they looked extremely happy. Highly recommend her! Thank you, Gina!

She sent pics and videos all the time! Had cats that I wasn't aware of till I got there!
As always, Gina was kind, loving, and attentive to my little Ellie. Gina is the BEST caregiver, and I recommend her highly.
Another 5-stars for Gina! She is the BEST! Our little Ellie doesn't stop wagging her tail when I drop her off. I know that Gina gives her the very best care I could imagine. I'm thankful.
Gina was so sweet and welcoming. The minute I brought my dog Wally into the house he was greeted by so many playmates and instantly felt comfortable there! I received pictures and updates everyday he was gone which was great! I could tell he was very well taken care of by Gina. Will definitely be using her again! Wally and I thank you Gina!!!

Gina is an amazing dog sitter who cares deeply for the pets that she watches. She constantly updated us with pictures for our dog and took her to the St. James County Park to let our dog run around and play. Our dog loved being there and was completely content when we picked her up. I would highly recommend using Gina if you want a dog sitter who not only loves animals but gives them the proper attention and environment for them to be comfortable while you are away.

I recently was in Charleston for the Jazz Festival and left Jordie with Gina for three days. Couldn't have been more satisfied. Gina provided a safe and fun haven for Jordie. She sent a number of photographs of Jordie during the days. Gina went the extra mile when I had to depart at 4am and had Jordie ready to do. Would highly recommend Gina and wouldn't hesitate to use here again.

This was the first time that we had left our dogs and were nervous about having someone else watch them, particularly given that we had recently adopted a new foster puppy who needed extra TLC to help keep her on the schedule we had worked so hard to achieve. We reached out to Gina on a whim after making reservations at our local doggie daycare and she was quick to respond, open to meeting us before hand, and able to say "Yes" to keeping our dogs on short notice. We were getting married and knew that we would need someone that we could trust to take care of them, so that we could enjoy our weekend celebration. Gina was thorough, prompt to respond, and provided us with lots of text, picture, and video updates throughout their stay. When we went to pick them up, we joked that they might not want to come home because at Gina's they got to go to the park often twice a day, gets lots of love, and climb up on couches to snuggle. I know that our dogs will be visiting with her again in the future.

Gina did a wonderful job with my 2 older labs. She kept me in the loop each day and was very attentive to their health issues. I feel very comfortable leaving them in her care!
Gina is very sweet. She took great care of Oscar and updated me often with pics. I was able to enjoy the beautiful city of Charleston while she cared for my pooch.
So very pleased with Gina. We have two dogs that require a ton of attention. Monty is an olde english bulldog, one years old, and requires 247 monitoring while out of his cage. When we are at work he stays in a cage so we needed someone to allow him to be out of his cage for a lot of the day and, thus to be at our house so he can be out of the cage. Betty is a 9.5 year old boxer who is very emotional and gets pretty major separation anxiety when we're away and I know Gina showed her and Monty a ton of affection while we were away. She took them on long walks and even stayed at the dog park with them for 45 minutes while they ran around. She came to our place 4-5 times each day at all hours of the early morning and late night. We also realized we needed Gina's help at the last minute and she was very responsive and came right over to meet the dogs and began the dog sitting immediately within less than 24 hours. We will definitely use her again in the future.

I could not have asked for a more loving, comfortable home for Ellie! Upon arrival, Ellie sensed Gina's loving nature and immediately felt right at home. Gina was so pleasant to work with and took every precaution and consideration for Ellie during her stay.
Gina was extremely easy to communicate with, and she sent me pictures and notes throughout Ellie's stay. I appreciated Gina's calm and efficient manner while making Ellie a part of her home. I am giving Gina the HIGHEST recommendation and will book with her any time we are in the area.

My little doxie Lily had a great time with Gina. When you meet Gina you can tell she has a great love and respect for dogs, and I felt totally comfortable leaving Lily in her care. She sent me updates throughout the day, and pictures of Lily romping in the park and snuggling at home. Thanks, Gina, for taking such wonderful care of my girl.

I had to find someone to watch Kenai within days of traveling and Gina was so helpful and accommodating. We live a couple of hours away and she even agreed to watch him without meeting him! It was great to get constant updates, and I never once felt like I had left him with a total stranger. She made sure he got plenty of exercise, and took him to meet a lot of new friends. Her knowledge on how to introduce him to her own dog and others as well was a huge confidence booster. I cannot begin to express my satisfaction on a job well done, and we will definitely use Gina when in that area again!
