About Virginia

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Home F/T! Devoted and Loving Care.

Hello! I’m Virginia (Ginny)! I cannot wait to love and pamper your dog. Dogs have always been a huge part of my life and I have always enjoyed taking care of and training my pets. I am excited to have your dog stay with me and my family. We can go walking, and/or just play outdoors - my backyard is almost a 1/2 an acre! I am also happy to support and help you with any basic training needs or any issues you may have with your pet. Just ask!

I am home full-time so I will be able to provide your dog with the care and attention he/she deserves while staying with me. Take a look at my photos to check out my home to see where your dog will be spending his/her doggy vacation. My home is near Surprise Stadium, is pet friendly and safe. My yard is fully fence! If your dog likes walks or going to the dog park just let me know and we will do whatever he likes!

The overnight boarding price listed is for a 24 hour stay for a dog weighing up to 44 lbs. It would be an additional $5.00 for a dog weighing 45+ lbs. I offer discounts for multiple dog families. My puppy rate is $38.00. My Holiday rate is the same for all dogs $40/night.**Please note my billing cycle runs for a 24 hour period. You may be billed an additional night if you run over your pickup time without making prior arrangements with me.**

My daycare services are available to current clients only. It is not available if your dog has never boarded with us. After your first stay with The Dawg Pack, daycare will be available for $25.00/day.

Why I love dog sitting
For as long as I can remember! Dogs have always been an important part of my life, since my first dog as a small child.

Meet my pets
2 large goldfish, Goldie and Pearl and a Plecostomus who shall remain nameless....for now.

About my yard
I have a huge fenced yard - all block wall so it's safe and secure. It's a very large yard, big enough to through balls, frisbees....whatever your dog loves! If your dog enjoys the dog park we will visit or we will go on walks if that's what he prefer. I live in a beautiful community with miles of sidewalk!

Bailey told us he had a great time at virginia's home! He enjoyed playing with the other dogs and kids. He liked laying with Rick in the evening looking forward to next time.
Ginny was great! She clearly knows and loves dogs. She cared for my 11 week old Wheaten Terrier puppy and was wonderful about continuing his potty training and crate training. She was so excited when he went to the door on his own to go out that she messaged me right away to share the good news! Her communication was excellent all the way through the process. My pup will be going back for another Vacay next month.
We were very pleased with Ruby's stay at Ginny's home, and the updates and pictures we received while we were away. We were relieved that she got along with others and seemed to enjoy the backyard and helped water the garden!

The Dawg Pack is amazing this is Tobi's 2nd stay and we will continue to use Virginia. This is Tobi's home away from home!
An amazing stay for Tobi he loved the huge yard and Virginia's dog was a great playmate for Tobi! Virginia's home was truly a home away from home for our Tobi!
Loved how accommodating the host was for my schedule. They treated my doggie like family! Absolutely will patronize this host again.
Took care of our Roxie even though she didn't like playing with Alice, Alice is a puppy and Roxie is a 14 year old lady. She enjoyed her visit especially rolling in the grass! Thanks Virginia great job.
Virginia is a wonderful host. Our Airedale, Whitney, had a great time on her stay. Virginia sent us lots of updates and pics and we were very comfortable leaving our pet with her. Whitney was relaxed and calm when we came for her. She had obviously had a terrific time. We will use Virginia again and can gladly recommend her.
Ginny was great! Maggie was so happy when I dropped her off and picked her up. It was clear that our pup was very well taken care of.
Virginia is truly a dog whisper. Not only did she provide a safe environment and wonderful care for Buddy, but She transformed an only child, apartment dog into a socially accepted pack member.

Virginia, her daughter and granddaughter alleviated the worry of a nervous mommy. I highly recommend Virginia for everyones dog sitting needs.
Virginia was great, easy going, very much loves dogs and treated ours like her own. She sent photos and updates occasionally which was nice. Virginia was very accommodating for pick up and drop off and made our first experience with using a dog sitter a very good one! We are booking her again for our next several vacations.
Virginia is amazing! She's very upbeat and personable, and her demeanor put me at eaze right away. Our meet&greet went very well, as did my dogs' stay with her. She worked with any issues I had, and was very accomodating to us. I will definitely use her service again!
If you are looking or a caring, knowledgeable, fun place for your furry child - this is it!!! Huge yard, their dog - Jazzy - is adorable! And her whole family (from hubby to granddaughter are dog lovers! So pleased for my guy!
Virginia was wonderful with Princess.Would use the service again. kept us informed on how Orincess was doing.
My dog had excellent visit. She was relaxed and acted like it was a second home. Virginia took great care of her. I will definitely take her back there. I have already recommended her to others.
Bubba loves going to their house and feels at home!
She was very thorough in her questions about Bubba. Bubba was very happy when we picked him up. She is my favorite host so far. We will be taking Bubba back for sure!
Daisy, our 14 year old, german sheppard mix, stayed with Ginny for a week in August. She has severe arthritis and needs help getting up and down most of the time. Ginny was so good with her; taking her on short walks (which she loved), giving her a bath, making sure she got her medication and just all around giving her lots of love and attention. I will definitely take her back to Ginny:)
My puppy Neeko had a wonderful stay at Virginia's place! She was extremely accommodating and sent me updates throughout the day. My dog is very hyper and gets overly-excited but she made sure he got along with her dog and took him on walks and to the park so he could release some of his energy. I would absolutely bring Neeko back to Virginia's again.
My dog had a great week stay at Virginia's. Maggie has special needs and Virginia did a good job of accommodating her. I would highly recommend Virginia for your dog.
