About Filipa

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

I increased my rates to catch up with the market, and I would really appreciate it if you would still book with me with my new rate, but if you don't (totally fine, no judgment)... a repeat client if you would like to keep your old rate, when you send me a reservation request, just let me know you would like to have your old price and I will send you a Custom quote, no questions asked... :)

Hope to see all your beautiful pups soon!!

***About me:

I have lived my whole life around dogs. My family has a 13 year old Black Lab called Winston. He was born with a lot of health issues which has given me a lot of tools from wound care taking, tailored walks and foods, training techniques for medicine time and more. I also trained him myself when he was a pup. Challenge accepted, love, fun and training coming your way. Whatever you and your dog needs, I will try and tailor for it.

My neighborhood has amazing parks and beautiful, peaceful and safe waterfront areas. I can take my bike with me and make your pup run if he is energetic, or just stroll near the water with your older fellow. If your dog likes to play fetch, then I will take him to the safety of the dog park and throw some balls around. I can also work on obedience if you would like, just because I think there are no bad dogs, just bad training.

When I board/walk a dog I like to know if he/she has allergies to any food and if he/she is friendly towards other dogs so I can best accommodate to the dog's needs. By living by myself I know no-one random will be dealing with the dogs except me.

As a working photographer a spontaneous photoshoot might happen at any moment of their stay, If it does, I will be sure you would enjoy to see the final product of that... :)

Adding to all of the above, I just want to know how much love you want me to give your amazing best friend...

Filipa is a great sitter! She is sweet and fun and loves dogs, and my pup just adores her. She has watched him multiple times, and he’s always happy to see her. Filipa's also very good with communication and sends lots of fun photos. Highly recommended!
Filipa was awesome! We got daily photo updates and she really took the time to give us detailed reports of our how our dog was doing. She is a very thoughtful person and our dog did great with her. We will definitely be booking again!
Filipa is the best! She was wonderful with Bobo, and great at keeping me updated with photos and messages during the weekend.
Filipa was great with Chiqui, she followed all of our instructions on the things that were needed for her over the weekend and went above and beyond to connect with her. It was a great experience. She was also very responsive and easily reachable.
From the start Filipa was extremely responsive, thorough and detailed, which was very impressive. My dog Kahlua is older can be a bit grumpy towards people and isn't the biggest fan of other dogs, and I'm usually more worried about the dog sitters liking Kahlua. But after the initial meet and greet, I was completely at ease with Filipa. She's had experience and seemed really comfortable handling Kahlua.

She sent so many picture updates throughout the weekend with little stories that were so great! And even told me that Kahlua ended up engaging in play with others and coming to her for cuddles and sharing a bed (which is pretty big for Kahlua spending a first weekend with someone).

I'm going to try to book all my future trips with Filipa!
Fredo had a great time with Filipa. The best part about Filipa was her consistent and great communication. She gave instructions about how to find her apt and also reminders about what to bring with our dog. She was also very flexible with drop off and pick up times which was really nice of her. I got a nice photo and update about my dog at least once a day. I will definitely book with Filipa again. Fredo can't wait!
I would definitely have my dog stay with Filipa again! She understood my dog's needs and behaviors and put me at ease by sharing her approach to taking care of dogs. During the DogVacay, she sent me a message everyday with a few photos and a quick note on what my dog had been doing that day. When I went to pick up him, my dog seemed sad to leave his new friend behind.
Filipa is super flexible and a great dog sitter!
Filipa was a pleasure. Went out of her way to make sure everything went smoothly.
Baby stayed with filipa over the 4th of July weekend and he couldn't have enjoyed himself more! She sent me updates all the time about how much fun they were having and we were always in contact. They even shared her bed together! He was expecting her to come along after I picked him up and was whining in the elevator. I think he misses her.
