About Roberta

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I know how important your fur kids are to you. You want them to be happy and well cared for while you are away. I have been pet sitting for seven years now. I also worked at a veterinary hospital for over a year as a veterinary assistant. I decided I enjoy pet sitting much more. I love all animals but dogs and cats have a special place in my heart. I offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day. When I have dogs staying with me, they have other animals to interact with as I have 2 cats and a Chihuahua. The dogs I watch get multiple walks a day and plenty of treats and lots of love! My apartment complex is dog friendly and sits in a wooded spacious setting.

Roberta has taken care of my Maltese 2 times, now, and he always has a blast while he's there, playing with her dog and the other guests. He didn't want to leave!
Roberta is wonderful! She has been walking my 4 month old puppy every day while I am at work. She always sends texts and photos after she leaves him! We are so thankful to have found her!
Kadie did very well with Roberta. After a bad kennel experience, I decided to try a dog sitter. When Kadie returned, she was in good spirits and good health. Roberta provided a comfortable, loving, and interesting environment, and Kadie clearly enjoyed her time there.

Great experience with Roberta and her cute pup Paco! Peppy loves staying with them! This was our second vacation where Peppy stayed with Roberta. She is very good at sending pictures and updates! It's great to have someone that loves dogs so much watching your pet when you are away. It makes a difficult situation (leaving your little one), so much better! Thank you so much, Roberta!!!

My dog Jack, a Golden Retriever does not do well in traditional kennels. Having to board him was always stressful for Jack and myself. That all changed when I discovered DogVacay. Roberta made Jack feel at home Immediately. She Walked Jack daily, made sure he got his daily Meds, and just treated him like one Of the family. She kept me up to date regarding Jack by text message (including photos of Jack). I finally was able to relax on vacation, knowing that Jack was in good hands.

Unfortunately, Roberta was unable to watch our dog. Despite a previous meet and greet where we we assured her resident dog would be OK, we were called on the way to the airport that she would not be able to watch our dog. It was incredibly poor timing that left us in a bind at the very last minute where we almost most missed our flight.

Roberta was fantastic and took great care of our Senior Lab. We would recommend her and will be utilizing her again for our future sitting needs. Our dog is 14 1/2 and had only been at a kennel once in her life. She was very happy to stay with Roberta and the experience was like staying with a friend!

Roberta, as usual, was excellent with Max. She is has been very attentive with him and we know he will be well cared for.
Lindy had an amazing stay as usual! We hadn't seen Roberta in almost a year since we don't travel much, but as soon as we entered the complex Lindy got excited and new exactly where we were going!! Our trip return time changed because of traffic and Roberta was very accommodating. Thanks for another great stay!!

Another great stay for Lindy! Roberta takes such good care of her we know we don't have to worry! Lindy will certainly be back again. Thanks for being such a great sitter!!
Roberta came through again. It's fantastic to be able to go away for a fun trip knowing your dog is in great hands - no worries. Thank you!
Roberta is very sweet. Halo and I met her on Monday and she agreed to take Halo on Friday through Sunday. I just moved to the area and had to travel. The apartment is very dog friendly (lots of toys to play with and they are allowed on the furniture) She was very happy today. We will definitely use Bertie again.

Max always looks forward to his visits with Roberta. We know he is in good hands. We will most certainly use her again.
Roberta was awesome with our dog Aria! This is the first time we left her with anyone. We were very nervous about doing it but then we met Roberta. She is great with animals and you can tell right away how much love she has for them. She sent us pictures of Aria during her week stay so we knew she was doing well. Will definitely use her services again!

We were nervous about leaving our dog but Theodore was fine and Roberta was quick to respond to our text message questions. Highly recommend this host!
Lindy had a great time! I know that she is always well taken care of feels right at home. She even gets to sleep on the bed :)
So pleased with Roberta , she really cares for and loves animals Always a pleasure :)
As always the most caring , loving puppy sitter !
Roberta is the absolute best ! Bubbie loves her and so do I . She always responds immediately and makes time to watch bubbie :)
Bruno had lots of fun as usual!
Roberta was fantastic. What a relief it was to have our dog stay in our own home instead of a kennel. Roberta sent us updates and pictures, and took good care of our house while we were away. She even emptied our dishwasher for us without being asked. Before we went away, our schedules allowed for her to visit our house a couple of times prior to our trip. This gave our dog a chance to become familiar with Roberta and make her subsequent stay at our house a lot less anxious. I would recommend Roberta to anyone - unless they wanted to book her at the same time we do!

Roberta did a great job with my dog. She is very accommodating and patient. She is easy to contact through text or call. I would go back!
Roberta was an excellent sitter for our young and energetic lab, Gus. Previously, it has been hard to get away for a few days without worrying if he was being taken care of. Roberta gave us peace of mind - she was prompt to respond, sent photo and text updates and gave Gus plenty of exercise and love.

Roberta was great with my two beagles. She made me feel comfortable with leaving them. I would recommend her as a dog sitter. I will use her again.
Roberta was loving and caring. She even let Marnie sleep with her when she was a little afraid. Marnie is 14 yrs old and a little timid. She seemed happy when we picked her up. We would definitely have Roberta again.
Roberta was excellent! Very pleased with the service. Haylee had a wonderful time and was exhausted following her two days with Roberta!
Nothing but good things to say about Roberta's care for my dog! Rosie got to go on a long hike and play with a couple doggie friends, and she went right to sleep when I brought her home. Highly recommend!
Roberta was great! It was so nice to have our dog in such good hands and in a home environment instead of a kennel. We were in contact a few times during the week our dog stayed with her so we were very reassured she was very comfortable and happy. Roberta is easy to get in touch with, friendly, and ensures the dogs get walks and lots of exercise.

Roberta was great with our two dogs. She did seem to be a bit overwhelmed... she had several dogs (a couple of fairly large ones) in a small apartment, and ended up calling a friend to come help. I believe she would be a fantastic host if she were to limit the number of dogs she hosts to a more manageable number.

Roberta was great! We were in the Reading, PA area for one day and I needed someone to watch my pup. Roberta was responsive to my emails and very accommodating to my requests. Our plans changed late the night before I was supposed to drop Bravo off, but Roberta returned my call right away, and again had no issue with meeting our needs. Bravo took immediately to her and was happy when I picked him up. He was tired too, from his day of play with the other dogs Roberta watches...he slept the whole 3 hr car ride home! If we lived in the area, I wouldn't hesitate booking Roberta again. This was my first time using dogvacay.com but won't be my last based on my experience today.

Joy saw Bertie 2 days after returning home. She went crazy, so excited to see her. She didn't want to leave and continue our walk. That says it all-she was very happy. BB
This was a last minute sitting request and Roberta had no problem taking Bella, for which I am greatly appreciative! I know Bella is being well cared for so I do not have the worries I normally have when she is home alone. I cannot say how happy I am to have found Roberta! Bella feels the same way too (i'm sure).

Prior to Romeo's stay, we had a meet and greet. At that point Romeo immediately showed comfort and confidence with Roberta and her babies. We knew immediately that Romeo approved. Throughout Romeos stay, Roberta contacted us daily with pictures and updates of Romeos day. She walked him several times a day and fed him regularly. Roberta was also kind enough to make herself available during a holiday. We will be sending Romeo back to her this summer during our vacations. I highly recommend Roberta. We were very pleased and look forward to working with her again soon.

Good job!
Roberta was Great. She took excellent care of our 13 year old pug Maddie. She sent us pictures and texts. I know our Maddie was spoiled, she even had a bath. Thank you for all you did. You put us at ease. John, Melanie and family
Joy had a wonderful vaca with Roberta and friends. She had a great party for her second birthday. I will feel very comfortable for Joy's next visit.
Roberta took great care of Max. She kept me updated during his week stay with photos and emails. Roberta has created a very welcoming environment for him. We will certainly use her again in the future.
Roberta is there when you need her! She always takes very good care of Bella and I cannot thank her enough.
My Australian Cattle Dog who is very suspicious of people immediately bonded with Roberta and her pets. We are very satisfied with the care and attention our dog has received. Will most certainly use her again.
Ace had a very pleasant and fun time with Robertas guests and pet! He is very exhausted now, but I can see that Ace had a very good time. She kept us updated with Ace as he ate and took walks with her. It was great to know Roberta was there to ask questions and get a response quickly. Thanks again!!

I am very happy to have found Roberta! Bella was well taken care of and that gave me great peace of mind.
Roberta took great care of our dog while we were away and helped her cope with her separation anxiety issues.
Roberta was great with Sarah. I will be taking Sarah to her again whenever I need to go out of town.
My dog had a fantastic time! She took him to petsmart for treats, on a nice 4 mile hike, and by the time I came to pick him up, he was so exhausted he didn't even make it home! I had to pick him up out of the car. Will definitely use her in the future
