About Gina

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*If my calendar shows me as unavailable please contact me anyway as we may be able to accommodate you.~ Thanks!


Unlike many of the sitters on this site I am a Professional Dog Trainer and have offered boarding to my clients for over 25 years. I am very skilled at reading dogs' body language so I can make sure everyone is happy and comfortable.

We can care for the rambunctious pup as well as the more shy or fragile treasured member of the family as well.

Either I or one of my assistants are usually here during the day.

The dogs get to play all day as much or as little as they like- every dog will receive customized care with indoor/outdoor access and everyone sleeps in the house at night.

We have a completely fenced acre. We have wading pools and fun 'whirly-bird' sprinklers to play in and a full size pool for the more adventurous!

The dogs usually go home 'pleasantly pooped'! :)

Let my home be your dog's 2nd home!

~The price per dog is determined after the Meet and Greet on a case by case basis and starts at $45/night per dog. We do offer discounts for multiple dogs or extended visits over 10 days.
There is a $10/night surcharge during Holiday periods for stays that include any Legal Holidays. Also due to our very limited availability these Holiday periods also have a DogVacay 'strict' non refundable deposit cancellation policy. We are sorry for any confusion this may cause but at this time DogVacay does not have the ability for us to list a price range or holiday rates in the pricing area nor can I adjust the cancellation policy display for Holiday dates only.

Everything went exactly to plan. Marcus seemed to have a great time. Gina and her team are clearly very knowledgeable and caring with all of the dogs. I would definitely recommend them.
My pups had a great time and I had complete piece of mind that they were very well taken care of. Gina cares about the dogs and is very knowledgeable about their care.
This was our first visit and usually when we pick up our dog from the kennel she is so excited/nervous. When we picked her up from Ma & Paw she must have enjoyed her stay because she was crazy excited to see me :) Thanks for giving her what she needed!
Both dogs had a great time and came home tired and relaxed.
So happy to have found Gina. Lua and Cooper stayed with Gina for 8 nights. We had never left our dogs for an overnight and were pretty nervous about it. They had a fabulous time and were well taken care of.
Lua is nearly 2 years old and Cooper is just 1 years old and have very different personalities. Cooper is very out going but Lua is a little shy. They are very rowdy and loud with each other. We needed to find a boarder who could deal with their high energy. Gina was perfect. She was relaxed about their craziness and antics. She was very understanding about our nervousness and kept us updated regularly. She was quick to respond to all of our inquiries. The videos that were posted helped us to relax and enjoy
our vacation because we could see that they were having a great time. I highly recommend Gina for doggy day care or overnight care.
We would absolutely use Gina again.
Gina is the best. Buddy had so much fun. Gina posts pics and videos so you can see all the action and know that your pet is o.k. Thanks Gina!!!
It is always a little scary when you leave your 4-legged kids for the night, but Gina instantly put us at ease. She was soft spoken, kind hearted, and very well educated when it comes to dogs and their needs. We would HIGHLY recommend her to all!!!
I feel comfortable leaving our dogs with Gina. The dogs have always been fine and seem to enjoy their stay. Gina will post pictures and/or videos so you can see how they are getting along with other dogs.
This was not our first time leaving Buddy, our 2 year old Cocker Spaniel with Gina. Again, he was well taken care of while we were away. It is nice not having to worry about him so we can relax on our vacation. Gina sent pictures of him playing with other dogs, he looked really happy.
Wonderful! We were really able to relax after seeing the daily pictures of our dog having fun with other dogs, playing and even swimming! Would highly recommend!!!
Gina is a wonderful host and takes great care of our dogs. She treats them well and provides a great place for them to play. She will also provide pictures while you're gone so you can see how the dogs are doing.
This was Walter and Aldo's second time staying with Gina. Once again everything was great. Gina is awesome. I would highly recommend her. The boys seemed to have as much fun on their vacay as we did on ours. Thank you Gina.
Our Doberman and Airdale had a great time staying with Gina for a few nights and an awesome time playing at doggy daycare with the other dogs! They will definitely be back!
We just had our dog Roxie, stay with Gina for a few days for the first time and we are very happy with her services. We got to view a variety of pictures and even saw a short video of our dog swimming in the pool for the first time! We had no problems in leaving Roxie with Gina and she (Roxie) seemed to really be enjoying herself on her "dog vaycay" while making new friends. We will definitely be using Gina's services in the future.
Thanks Gina! :)
This was our dogs first time being boarded. They had a wonderful vacation with Gina. Gina is very organized and professional. We received several cute pics the first day showing our boys playing nicely with others which was a big relief for us. They were healthy and happy when we picked them up. It was a good first experience for us. I would recommend Gina to others.
I only gave 4 stars because I would have loved to see pics everyday.
Ma 'n Paw kennel has been the perfect solution for our dog Boo when we go out of town. He gets the social interaction that he needs with both dogs and humans in a loving environment. Gina does a great job of sending us pictures of Boo at play while we are away so we can see how much fun he's having.
Very good.
My 11m puppy has lots of play time with other dogs. I appreciate the photos Gina sends. When I go to pick up my dog wants to go back inside the house to play. I have been sending my dog for overnight stays for about 4 times now and never had a problem.
This was our dog's first visit with Gina and we were extremely pleased. Gina was kind enough to send us pictures of our dog playing with the other dogs during his visit. He seemed calm and happy when we picked him up. Gina is great to work with and you can tell she truly cares about the animals in her care.
Everything went very well. Very pleased. Will be reserving with Gina in the near future.
Gina has a great play area for her guests and sends photos of your pet during its stay. No problems.
I feel very fortunate to have selected Gina to care for my anxious, skittish Havanese for three full days and three nights. Gina's knowledge of, and experience with dogs, left me confident my dog would be cared for by a caring, kind, professional. When picking up my pet, the positive interaction I saw between Gina and my dog confirmed this. Thank you Gina, ChaCha and I will most definitely see you again.
Gina is absolutely wonderful. Not only does she provide a great environment, but she also keeps you informed while you're away by sending updates and pictures.
Gina was GREAT! She really came though last minute, and right off the bat made me feel comfortable. My dog Seven loved her. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is a real pro. Thanks Gina!
Gina was great with our pups. Our dogs were always smiling in the pictures she text us. I would defiantly use her services again.
I love how careful Gina is with the dogs, introducing them one at a tme. And the photos she sends to my phone reassure me that my girl is having as much fun as I am.
