About Bettina

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a recently retired college professor in the field of elementary education. I grew up in the summers on a family farm in Indiana, and have been surrounded by animals all of my life, including cattle, sheep, chickens, cats, and dogs. I have a shepherd hound mix whom I rescued 7 years ago named Skipper, and a 4 year-old chocolate lab. I have cared for dogs in the past. My dogs are very socialized and friendly; non-aggressive. We have a nice sized, fenced in back yard with a kiddie pool and lawn for ball throwing and playing. I live in the East Hill section of Pensacola, and there are 2 fenced in dog parks, one on a beach, where your dogs can also run and play. I am able to administer medications and special care requests.

Thank you Bettina for watching Cali and giving me the comfort I needed to know that she would be OK. Bettina had a busy house of animals while watching Cali, her own dog, a puppy, a kitty cat and my dog. But she obviously cared for their needs individually and made sure they all felt at home. Cali was part of the pack when I came to pick her up, which is more than appreciated.
Thank you Bettina for taking Cali into your home while I was not able to house her. I can wholeheartedly say I was not worried when I dropped Cali off into your care, your nurturing attitude toward pets and your understanding of their needs assured me that Cali would be well fed and loved while I was unable to have her.
So sorry this review is late. My little Romeo really enjoyed his stay with Betina. She was wonderful. Very attention to my pup. If I ever have to leave my dog behind again I will definitely leave him with Betina. Really enjoyed getting the pictures, which eased my separation anxiety (I don't think Romeo even missed me). I really can't say enough nice things about her. Definitely recommend her to anyone in the Pensacola area. Great experience.
When we got to her home there were many dogs and it was chaotic... The large dog and her brown dog both got aggressive with our dog in the few minutes that we were there... I was very uneasy and shouldve listened to my instincts. I explained to her that we were going to Orlando for a conf. And wouldnt be available if the dogs continued to not get along... She assured me that she could and would handle any possible problems... Couple days later we get a call from dogvacay informing me that she stated our dog is problematic and aggressive... He was sent to another host where he was perfect and had no problems! He came home with fleas and she kept his dog bowls!! Bettina is keeping ALOT of dogs and is overwelmed. My dog also has a scar on his nose and a tooth hole. Please do not put your pet in this home!!
My two dogs were well taken care of even though she had challenges with another one she was caring for....awesome host!
Tyson had an amazing time with her and her furry ones!! She even took him to the park and he had a blast there too. She sent photo updates during the weekend, which was very much appreciated. It was very nice knowing she was taking such good care of Tyson while I was gone. Very accommodating with pickup and drop off and Tyson was exhausted after that weekend!! Always a good sign! I will definitely book with her again!
Bettina is an animal lover and a wonderful person. She clearly cares for my dog and it is a relief that she is available to watch her. Thanks Bettina!
Obviously loves our puppy. Fortunately very flexible with early hours and changing pickup times. Sends pics throughout week of our puppy playing with her other dogs.
Romeo had a great time
Romeo really enjoyed his stay. Plan to book another day next week
