About Roberta

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Daily Visits to the best Dog Park in Florida offers Acres and hours of free-running play and exploration. Your pup is our pup when staying with us! Walks, Noms, Grub, Freedom, 24-hour Couch-time, Snuggles, Safety, Beds, Baths. We have 3 friendly, mellow, happy, healthy dogs. Eating, Bathroom Duties, Crating or no, all depends on your fur baby's schedule and needs.

I must limit the age of our guests. I sadly can't keep up with puppies...will need your pups to be over the age of two yeas.. Also, due to a back injury, I am only able to accept small and medium dogs, no big guys. My final no-no is that I cannot accept male dogs who are not neutered, due to general pack chaos in response to the unneutered dog's hormones.

Testimonial from Linda J: "Roberta is the only "dog whisperer" I personally know!! She has a wonderful understanding of animals and I have yet to meet a dog that does not take to her and become her "friend" in mere minutes. Roberta is a favorite source of insight and knowledge in our dog park community. She has been our dog sitter for the past 6 years and I never feel nervous about leaving our Sadie under her experienced and loving care. Count yourself lucky if your dog gets to spend any time with Roberta! "Linda (WP, Florida)

Testimonial from Anna: "The images from the dog park really sold me on Roberta ... and her own pups are just sweeties. I know my "girls" get plenty of attention and loving, and I can travel with peace of mind, knowing they are safe and getting plenty of TLC; it's the next best thing to being at home. (Such a lovely environment, sometimes I wish I could stay there!)"

Testimonial from Dawn A. "I have had Trixie for only 7 months and was very nervous to leave for a vacation over new years. I contacted Roberta and set up the dates. When I dropped Trixie off I was so impressed with Roberta and her warm open demeanor, that I instantly felt right leaving Trixie for 5 days. The communication was outstanding! Roberta sent pictures and updates I did not have one worry about Trixie and her care. When I picked Trixie up she was playing and was part of the family, I could tell she was happy and loved on for 5 days. I would recommend Roberta to anyone who wants a safe and loving environment for you pet while your away... I will be using Roberta any time I leave town."

Testimonial from Ancil A.: I'm pretty sure Peter didnt want to leave. Came home washed and happy. Great person to watch your dog.

Roberta sent me pics throughout the whole weekend which was super comforting. She was great with introducing my dogs to all the other dogs and I will definitely be using her in the future.
I trust Roberta with my sweet Paisley! I don't think I could take her anywhere else!
Roberta is awesome!!!! Her love for dogs goes without saying. My baby was more than spoiled!
Perfect!!!!!!
Amazing care for our pup! Thank you so much Roberta!
Perfect location for me and had availability my scottie was very happy! mrs Roberta knows what she's doing!
Roberta is an amazing dog carer. We were so happy with her taking care of our baby. Definitely would use her services again without hesitation. Totally 5-stars!
Peanut had a blast. She told me :) Roberta was communicative & great.
Good!
Roberta, is the most professional caring sitter I have ever experienced. This was my first meeting with her. I have had a lot of sitters as I travel frequently . I don't toss that compliment to anyone else. I didn't groom my doggies before dropping off & one of my doggies had crusty ears when I left him . I came home from a busy Christmas vacation with my loves in much better shape then when I left them. They were happy , clean and at peace. It's obvious they received a lot of love attention and excersize. I can't say enough good things about Roberta . I strongly recommend her for dogs of any breed. With gratitude Ginger

I always worry about leaving my dogs when we travel but when ever we drop them off, they run up the stairs to Roberta's and don't even look back. I am starting to think they like it there more than home. Roberta is awesome.
We were very happy with Roberta, she sent us pictures and kept us updated. I highly recommend her services.
Excellent as usual. Couldn't ask for a better person to take care of our little dog! She came home fit and happy. We feel so secure having Roberta take care of our pup.
Roberta was very nice and very responsive to all of our questions and concerns! We were hoping for a few pictures or updates while we were away but other then that everything was great!
This was our 2nd time using Roberta & our dog came back pooped from all the fun she had. Roberta is a great sitter & we'd recommend her to everyone.
Roberta was very kind and Oliver loved his stay there. He came back happy :)
Roberta is amazing! My pug babies stay with her everytime I go out of town, and they always come home to me happy and healthy:) I greatly appreciate the care and attention Roberta gives to my dogs and highly recommend!
Roberta was great! My dog stayed with her over a long weekend on her first dog vacay visit. She usually stays at home with my neighbor when I'm away but this time I decided to try dogvacay instead. Everything wen smoothly and my dog loved being at her home. Roberta is great with animals. I would recommend her!

Roberta was fantastic! It was the first time our two fur babies stayed with someone outside of our family, and they made themselves right at home! We received photo's and updates daily on their vacation :) The babies are heading back there this week for another vacation.

Roberta is great. This was my first time using dogvacay and I am using it a few times a week now. My dog couldn't be happier!
Roberta was AMAZING. I had initially had a different host booked for my 14 year old Maltese, Marley, but they had an emergency and had to cancel at the last minute - the day before we left for a two week long trip to Japan. Roberta was wonderful and came through for us. I have never left Marley with anyone before, but he really seemed to enjoy his stay with Roberta. He seems a little nervous and depressed since coming home after his two week doggie vacay!

Great job! Thank you
This was my third time leaving scruffy with Roberta, and I could tell he had a lot of fun, normally he is very energetic but after a few days with her he just comes home and wants to sleep because he had so much fun. I will always go with roberta any time scruffy needs someone to stay with

Roberta removed any fear we might have of leaving our little boy with her. Scruffy had a great time during his stay, he loved the park and came back to us exhausted. It was wonderful, I would recommend Roberta to anyone!
Cookie came home happy and well-adjusted after a week with Roberta. Roberta was very accessible and sent us pictures and updates on how Cookie was doing. We will definitely use her again!
This woman is AMAZING! And so is her husband! My dog, Ryan, stayed with Roberta on a few occasions right before I was about to move to New Orleans from Orlando. First, she's the woman version of Ceasar Milan. Total dog whisperer. My dog usually doesn't like other dogs but Roberta got him into the pack with the other dogs she boards and he acted totally fine! She took him to the dog park every day (which he also doesn't like normally and he was great there too), texted me about how he was doing and when I went to pick him up she didn't want him to leave! I would recommend Roberta to anyone... unless you have a bad dog! I wouldn't wish a bad dog on sweet Roberta! :o) Great boarding experience and I wish I still had her to watch Ryan! Thank Roberta!

Roberta was wonderful with my rat terrier, Mila! I can tell she loves her animals and gives them a very comfy place to be while we are away. I was glad to know Mila was well cared for for the week...especially while we were away and unreachable during that time! She did send photos that we were able to see and that was wonderful!

Once again, dogs seemed very happy and alert when I picked them up. Roberta shows great care for the dogs she watches and I will use her again!
Roberta was great!! Had a meet n greet first to see how Niña would react. Brought her over a few days later and she fit right on in. I could tell Niña had a great time playing in the park from the pics Roberta sent me. I'm was so pleased I found Roberta, she was a great sitter for Niña. We will definitely use Roberta next time!!

Roberta was Pawsome! Colby and Teddy came home happy and content. It's very obvious she is a dog lover who makes sure the doge are paid much attention to and are in very good care. Thanks Roberta, you really are Pawsome!!
Awesome. Great. Gizmo did great even with 4th of July fireworks. Would highly recommend! Roberta is definitely a fellow dog lover!
Our dog did great with Roberta. She's usually pretty anxious and shy, but seemed right at home there. We are really pleased that we found someone who took such good care of our pup (and last minute too.) It gave us peace of mind while we were away overnight. Next time we go away we would leave her with Roberta again.

Roberta was great with our dogs (one large and one small) I loved that our dogs had other playmates and DAILY trips to the dog park. They had full roam of her home and furniture which is a luxury for them bc we don't let them on our couches at home LOL ...we will definitely use her again!

Thanks Roberta and Jeff. Y'all were great. Thanks for the advise too. If I need anotber sitter y'all will be the ones.
Tidus (My Dog) seemed to have a great time. She took care of him perfectly. No complaints whatsoever.

Roberta is wonderful ... Lana always loves going to the park with her , and comes back tired and happy!
Roberta was as nice as nice can be. Her house is double dog safe. Bonnie told us she had a great time there and in the fenced dog park outings. She was happy to see us but started to follow Roberta back into her house. Guess she was missing her new friends. Roberta sent us a picture of Bonnie in the park. A great experience for us and Bonnie.

Roberta helped us out on short notice when we were in town for a wedding. We handed over two nervous dogs, and got back two happy and EXHAUSTED dogs! They loved their hike and we will definitely take them to her again next time we are in Orlando.
Roberta is amazing , we love her !
So wonderful! One of our dogs was nervous about staying at a new place but Roberta was so understanding comforting to him, and our dog was lounging on their couch in no time! Hope to stay with them again!
Roberta always takes great care of Clementine and is very flexible with our schedules!
We left Gem with Roberta over Christmas. This was the first time we had left our dog with anyone or boarded her. We are so happy that she stayed with Roberta as she came home happy and tired. Knowing she got walks, attention, and not cooped up in a cage gave us peace of mind. I will recommend Roberta to my pet owner friends and to anyone wanting a good situation for their dog while they are out of town.

Roberta has watched Scruffy twice in the past 3 weeks, this was my first time leaving him with someone else and I was a bit nervous. At the meet and greet Roberta put my worries at ease and answered any questions I had for her. While I was on my trips she posted pictures of scruffy having fun with her dogs, and the dogs she was watching. She is incredibly accommodating with drop off and pick up times. When I went to pick scruffy up he was dead tired from having soo much fun with her. I would gladly recommend her to anyone I know that needs to have someone watch their dogs.

Lana's time with Roberta was great...
Roberta was wonderful , calm, reassuring, and I had no reservations about leaving Lana with her.
There were other dog friends for her to play with , and she took daily trips to the dog park.
Roberta send photos during Lana's stay , which was great . She was tired and bathed when we picked her up; we will most definitely use Roberta again!

Roberta was wonderful! I was traveling with a 9 week old puppy and needed some help in a pinch. Roberta reaponded to be in under one hour and in was able to drop her off right away. My puppy Lucy took to Roberta right away and loved playing with her other dogs. Over the weekend she sent me photos and we texted back and forth. It was effortless! I plan to use Roberta again. Lucy came home happy, healthy, and with better manners!

Roberta is a gem! We were so nervous to leave our baby girl with someone other than close friends or family, but Caira had a great time & was well cared for while we were away. Roberta even took the time to send a quick pic :)
Roberta and her husband are awesome! They took my reservation super last minute, and were very accommodating. They took great care of my baby, and answered all of my million questions without complaint, and Roberta sent pictures and email updates to help put me at ease. I am very nervous about leaving my dog in new situations, but they took great care of her and she was happy to go back again the next day. I will definitely call them again next time I need a sitter!

When we picked our puppy up from Roberta's house she was happy and tired. I think she had a great time playing with the other dogs. Our puppy is a bit of a handful but Roberta said everything went swimmingly. It's great to know we have someone who will take good care of her while we're away and it's an extra bonus that she comes back sleepy and relaxed from playing so much.

I can't give Roberta enough praise. She took very good care of our dog while we were away and made her feel conformable from the moment she arrived. Every morning she would take the kids (dogs) to the near by park to play and blow some steam off. This was certainly a welcome treat to their day while we were away. The day were to return we had a family emergency and Roberta kindly offered to have a our dog stay for another evening. This may not seem like a big deal but when you are faced with an emergency a gesture like this makes a world of difference. We will definitely use Roberta's services again and highly recommend her.

Roberta was a life saver!! we were scheduled to leave riley with another dogvacay family while we were on a two day trip for my birthday. my first reservation emailed to say they had work related issues so I went into panic mode but read Roberta's reviews and asked if we could leave riley with her on short notice. she agreed even without a meet and greet. our get away was saved and riley came home happy and exhausted!! it was very obvious that Roberta really loves the dogs she watches and we will not hesitate leaving riley with her again!! our first experience with dogvacay and it couldn't have been more perfect!!

I have a shy dog that warmed up to Roberta right away!
I used to take Izzy to work every day. I recently got a new job that could possibly hold me late. Terrified that Izzy would be stuck with no where to pee, I started taking her to Roberta's for the day.
Izzy seems to be enjoying her days hanging out with other dogs, going to the park, and chillin on the couch.
Roberta is great. She obviously knows a lot about dogs and made my neurotic pooch feel right at home.
It truly puts my mind at ease knowing Izzy is doing something she enjoys all day since she can't work with me anymore.
I'm so glad we found Roberta!!!

Harley enjoyed her stay with Roberta and her 3 furry friends. We would use Roberta's services again for our next vacation.
Roberta was great. She sent pictures of Spike when I was away. Spike seemed very happy and I have just booked another stay with her.
Roberta is simply wonderful. My pup looks forward to his stays with her and I can enjoy my time away knowing that Max is being cared for by someone terrific.
After having our previous sitter cancel on us because she could not handle our two "big" dogs (which by the way are 40 and 60lbs) Roberta really helped us out of a bind! We were moving on a Saturday and did not want the dogs dealing with all the nonsense that comes with that so we left the dogs with Roberta till the move was over. Both of our "kids" had an awesome time and came back tired and ready to sleep the day away! Thanks again!

My Frenchie, Max, is a year and a half old. As a business owner, I am fortunate to keep him with me nearly 24 hours each day. Unfortunately, this level of attention typically backfires when I must board him during trips: Max reacts as though I am abandoning him, shivering and shaking each time I must depart.

Roberta was the first in-home day care experience for us. We scheduled a meet and greet first, and Max was immediately 'at home' with Roberta and her four-legged family. He traipsed through the house and made himself at home on Roberta's couch (with her blessing, of course). I made the decision to leave Max in Roberta's care during my next trip.

It was a great decision. Roberta sent me pictures almost every day - Max frolicking at the dog park, Max passed out on the couch. Max was enjoying his time away!!

Recently, I had the occasion to have Roberta watch Max a second time (although just for a few hours). This was the true test for me - would Max be reduced to a shivering mess when I left again? No. In fact, Max raced to Roberta's door and immediately pressed his face up to the window to see which pups he could play with.

What a relief to know that I have a wonderful alternative to home. I highly recommend Roberta and I know both Max and I can look forward to his next 'dogvacay'.

Roberta was a wonderful host to our Max. She and her pups made Max feel at 'home' from the moment we met. The pictures I received almost daily while I was gone reassured me that I made the right decision to leave Max in Roberta's care. And I know Max enjoyed the daily walks and exercise at the dog park - he's been sleeping soundly since I picked him up!

Roberta is great. Nicky came home clean and tired. We have found his home away from home.
