About Roxana

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a Veterinary Science Major at the University of South Florida. I worked at Dr. Nina's Animal Hospital for a year and catered to all boarding animals. I have been dog hosting for about three years now. I am skilled at administering medications, such as insulin, pills, or fluids, and have some experience in dog training. I own a very docile 6 year old shepherd that is house mate to all boarders. I also own a few cats who love dogs! My home has a large fenced in front yard and backyard. When I run errands your baby stays inside. I have 24/7 surveillance system around my entire home and property. Therefore, monitoring is made easy and recordings of what occur are available in case anything happens. However, I have NEVER had any dog aggression occur in my home and intend to keep it that way! I cannot stress this enough that every dog I board has to absolutely, positively 100% FRIENDLY with other dogs and cats. MEET AND GREET IS ALWAYS REQUIRED AND I WILL NOT ACCEPT DOGS WITH ANY AGGRESSION. Also, if you leave your pup with me I take and send copious pictures and some videos through facebook (you do not need to have an account to view them). This way is easier than sending 30 or so pictures or a video through text, which often times is too large.
Animals, especially dogs, are more than just pets to me. They are sensible knowing creatures who more than often behave better than people. For the protection of all of our pets (since all sizes are mixed) I only accept medium and large size dogs. No less than 15 lbs and no more than 90 pounds. This would be about the size of a beagle and the size of a large golden retriever. More information and references provided upon request. If you wish to read more reviews please go to Rover.com and find me under Roxy's Pampered Pets. I prefer for you to book over the sight that you found me under in order to be fair to the networking agents running the site.

Why I love dog sitting:
I am actively pursuing a degree in Veterinary Science. Currently I am a student working on my bachelors at USFSM. In the future, I plan to attend the University of Georgia for their School of Veterinary Medicine. Saying I love dogs is a little simplistic for me. My love extends to ALL animals. I also currently have chickens and would one day love to own a ranch with many farm animals. I only eat pasture raised meat because I boycott factory farms (animal abuse). I try my hardest to treat them fairly and with compassion.

About my yard:
I have a large front and backyard. The entire perimeter is fenced in. Not even a small dog could escape. Overall, there is a lot of room to run in and I will offer the entire yard while I'm home if they're not being lazy.

Skill in administering medication:
I am experienced in administering medication. I prefer giving fluids in food or pills in treats or at the base of the throat.

About Reviews:
I just transitioned to this site from Rover. If you wish to see some Reviews you may find me at Rover under Roxy's Pampered Pets. I have been dog sitting since before Rover and Dogvacay so I also have lots of outside references if desired.

This host was great with Penny..she fit roight in with other dogs and cats...Roxanna and family took good care of Penny several times that we have had her there...
I appreciate the good care Roxana provided to my babies. I was pleasantly surprised to see my dogs playing and having a great time at Roxana's home. In the past, one of them had issues to eat and play (anxiety separation) and this time I saw her playing, know that she was eating well and even going to Roxana to get pet. I loved it!

Roxy is a gracious and knowledgable host to pets. She introduced our dog to the other guest one at a time to give our dog time to adjust and them to adjust to our dog. She has a secure area where the dogs can play and explore. Roxy takes the time to make the dogs comfortable and sends pictures of your pet and detailed texts of her activity. She makes sure each dog is comfortable and safe.

It was the first time that Roxana and her family took care of our girls Bliss and Akela, and they definitely did a great job. Roxana kept in touch with updates and pictures which made us feel tranquil. Our dogs had an awesome time at Roxana's house. We will contact her again! Chris and Karina

Penny had a great time as always! We are glad to have found a great place for her when we travel!!
Very skeptical before the meet and greet, but I was quickly swayed. Very nice safe environment. My dog was greeted and welcomed. All concerns were swept away. Roxie was low key and let the dogs do the work in the meet. Will use them again, Maddie came back tired and content with a smile on her face. Roxie not only made Maddie feel good, she made me feel good. She did the extra step of washing Maddie's bed before I picked her up, totally unexpected.

Amazing!! Otto is a 8 month old german shepherd puppy with lots of energy. It was our first time leaving Otto and I never felt so comfortable leaving him with Roxana. She was amazing, always giving us updates on how he was doing. She would also take them on adventures, such as red bug slough and walks to tire them out. I would recommend her to anyone she is genuinely a animal lover and took great care of Otto.
Thank you so much Roxana, Otto misses you!

Elizabeth.
