About Gina

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, We've been a family of dogs for over 30 years. All of our dogs have been small breeds. Our specialty is chihuahuas, divas are no problem with us. Currently we do not have any dogs living with us but puppysit as often as needed. All small breeds welcome as long as they are trained and not vicious. Our home has two children who are extremely gentle and loving to all animals. Our yard is fenced in for your pooch to run freely and there are also sidewalks for leisurely walks around the blocks. Any age dog is welcome and I am ok with giving any of their daily medications as needed. The dogs are welcomed in all of our rooms and can sleep wherever they are comfortable. Since most days m-f I work from home they would not be alone for more than 1 hr at a time for any errands that would need to be done.

Gina is excellent! She showed my dog so much love, and it was a relief knowing that my dog was well taken care of!
My pups were in doggy heaven! Thank you for taking such good care of them. :)
Amazing! Gina and her family treated my little yorkie with such care and love! This was my first time using DogVacay and so I was nervous, but Gina showed me around her house and yard and talked with me for a while when I dropped him off. She was great about sending me photos and updates, both text and within the DogVacay update emails, and he seemed to be right at home. If you are looking for a nice and safe home to drop off your small fur-baby, this truly is it. Gina really cares and is a lovely person, and her children were great with him, too. I will definitely book with her again!

This was our first time placing our little poodle with the dog sitter. I was very worried and I did not know what to expect. Gina was very kind and caring; she sent us updates with pictures and she made use feel at ease and relax. I will be using her services again and I will recommend her to my other friends.

She made our dog feel like at home and the dog returned home happy.

Gina was the best! We are so happy we had Luna stay with her. She was taken care of as well (or even better) than she would have been at home. Great communication before, during and after. We will definitely be going back.
We were so lucky to find Gina and her family. Our 1 year old mini dachshund, Sarah, had so much fun. I am always sad to leave Sarah, but Sarah was running around wagging her tail the minute she walked in the door. It made me feel very comfortable leaving her in their care. They have a wonderful yard for Sarah to be secure and play in with Gina and her family. Sarah was able to sleep in bed with them and have people around her all the time, which she loves! We received lots of pictures and since I did not have wifi access, she texted me the pictures so that I was able to see my little pup. You could tell Sarah was well cared for and had no problems. Also, when we had to extend the trip last minute, Gina was very accommodating!
We will absolutely use Gina in the future!!

Gina and her family were awesome. I would definitely recommend anyone to use them. Benji from the start felt at home. He took off and starting running and playing with the kids and forgot all about us instantly. I really want to thank them all for their hospitality and caring hearts.

Gina and her kids were great at taking care of my puppy! She spent a lot of time playing and running in the yard. Gina even got her a few nice chew toys as she is teething, learning to crate train, as well as in the process of being housebroken. It was definitely a full time job! Miley came home clean, happy and with all her supplies! Thank you, Gina:)

This is the second time that Gina and her family has welcomed Sadie into their home. All I can say is that Gina is an angel...she treats my "baby" like her own and I am completely confident that Sadie will be loved and cared for while I am away. I can't tell you how much I appreciate having her in my life. It is truly is Sadie's second home.

My Bichon had a fantastic time at Gina's! Lots of TLC, playtime, freedom to sleep wherever he wanted. It was so wonderful knowing that my boy was being well cared for. A big thanks to Gina & family for everything. I was a little worried he wouldn't want to come home!!

Our dog Tucker enjoyed his vacation while we attended a wedding in Florida. Tucker enjoyed his stay with Gina and her family. He loved playing with her kids. This was his first time away and everything worked out. Gina sent us daily updates and photos. Gina was great to work with and hope to work her again someday!

This is the 2nd time we've used Gina to watch our pup and this time was just as good as the first! Gina and her family are caring, attentive and are truly animal lovers. We always feel like our dog, Lucie, is in great care when with Gina and her family...allowing us to enjoy our vacation even more! Thanks Gina!

We only have nice things to say about Lucie's stay with Gina and her family! Lucie was very well taken care of, it was wonderful to get updates and pictures from Gina, and we felt like we could enjoy our vacation knowing that Lucie was in good hands and getting all the attention and love that she gets at home from us! Would definitely recommend Gina, and we will for sure use her again!! Great experience!

This was our 11 year old toy poodles second vist with Gina A. When we arrived you can tell he was looking forward to going in, pulling us toward the door. He even seemed somewaht reluctant to leave. Gina A is an excellent pet provider. Her two children love our poodle and it's appanent that he loves them.

I wouldn't consider leaving my small pups with anyone else! They are cared for with such great love and attention while at Gina's house, so I know they love staying with her and her family. Gina's communication is excellent and she keeps us updated and fully informed with pics of our pooches while we are away. Highly recommend!!

Thank you Miss Gina for taking such very good care of me once again. I love you and your family SO MUCH, and I can't wait to come again!! Kisses....Sadie
Thanks to Gina and her amazing family, we have found our Mattie's home away from home! I echo all the sentiments from the reviewer above! This was the first time we couldn't take our Maltese, Mattie, on a trip with us. And like the reviewer above, my family members and I had a decent amount of anxiety over where we would leave our "baby" for a whole week. We had explored several options, none of which 'felt' right or alleviated all of our collective worries. Then I found DogVacay. Luckily, we had several profiles to look through due to our location. I had a long list of criteria and figured we would interview a handful of hosts that met most of them. I even expanded our search to include all hosts within an hour away. This is where I found Gina's profile--she met every single criterion we had. I sent her a request for a Meet and Greet and she responded right away. Upon meeting Gina and her family, EVERY ounce of our worry disappeared immediately. Two thumbs up were given by my daughter and myself within the first 5 minutes of meeting Gina. Gina and her family were outstanding hosts. Mattie was loved and cared for (and spoiled! ;) just like she would have been at home. We received daily updates and pictures which were greatly appreciated. Gina and her family truly treated Mattie like a member of their family during her time there. We could not have asked for a better experience for a worry free vacation and I have recommended Gina to several of my friends.

Since this was my first time leaving my "child" behind (not with a family member), I can't tell you how much anxiety I felt with the prospect of being gone for over 10 days, in Europe no less. Due to the distance, I would be helpless to return should there be cause for concern or bad circumstance. I decided to check out DogVacay to see who in my area could possibly watch Sadie and with whom I could feel comfortable. I saw Gina's profile and immediately contacted her. She was super responsive and soon arranged to have a visit to her home. Long story short, her family was incredible. They made us feel welcome at once, and I knew this was the place for Sadie. During the entire time I was away, Gina sent copious messages and pictures of Sadie, and I always felt connected. She took all of my concerns very seriously and I never felt once that she did not adhere to any of my requests. The family truly made Sadie a part of their home (she wasn't left alone for more than 10 minutes!), and I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to have her return. I highly recommend Gina and her family...you will not be disappointed. Not only did I find a wonderful temporary home for my precious pet, but I have also found a great new friend in Gina.
