About Tina

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I am a self proclaimed animal whisperer! I love dogs. I will watch your beloved pet in my home as if they were my own. I consider myself to be the dog grandma! I have 3 grand dogs of my own!
I have a 16 mos old female German Shepard. She plays well with other dogs, big or small.

I know how it is to go out of town and worry about putting your dog in the kennel, that constant uneasiness, "Are they taking care of my baby". I always got anxious at night knowing there was no one at the kennel, and what if something happened? It comforted me knowing one of my friends or family members watched my dog instead of the kennel. I prefer a meet n greet before hand, it's very important to know if your dog feels comfortable here. I also insist that your dog must be up-to-date on all shots especially kennel cough (Bordetella). This is for your dogs benefit as well as mine! We want every fur baby to have a great stay!

Your dog should be comfortable for 7-8 hours alone, as I do work during the week, When I come home from work the first thing I do is take the dogs for a nice walk or play in the back yard, then we have dinner and we play again! Your dog MUST be potty trained. Your baby will get plenty of attention and TLC!!

I'm doing this because I love dogs and I genuinely care about them. For me, its the best of both worlds. I can spend time with dogs, play and love on them, spoil them and then they go home! Just like at Grandma's house!

If you only need daycare instead of boarding, I can provide daycare on Saturday and/or Sunday.

40.00 a day boarding
30.00 for daycare
30.00 per visit for check up/visit

Tina is great! We have gone to Tina at least 4 or 5 times. She always treats Paulie as if he was her own. And she agreed to take him this time on only a few hours notice!
Tina provided loving care for our little dog. We received photos or her inside and outside. She was very comfortable while we were away. I would definitely recommend Tina for your DogVacay sitter!
Tina did an awesome job with Max, I would definitely recommend her.
Tina was wonderful to work with!! My pup, Reggie, had a fantastic time at her lovely home. Thank you SO much Tina!!! We will definitely back!
Tina was very accommodating for us My dog is not really good around other dogs but Tina made it work. My dog was comfortable and well taken care of. Tina was also very nice in letting us pick our dog up later than planned. I would certainly go to Tina again next time we need a dog sitter!
Tina is clearly a dog lover, and we're sure Molly was very comfortable and well taken care of by her. She shared some great pictures and kept us well informed. We were happy that Molly was exposed to other dogs during her stay, and relieved that she managed. Her experience with other dogs has been limited to other Dogvacay stays, and we feel the more she is around them the more comfortable she will get (she can be very nervous in new situations). It is readily apparent from the photos that Molly felt right at home with Tina. We hope she will have her again.
Tina is great!!!!!!
Tina was absolutely awesome with Titan! I'm so glad we found her it made leaving the pup for a couple days very easy knowing she was going to take care of him!
Simply the Best!!
Tina is amazing. My baby girl Carli was nothing more than the spawn of Satan when she was there and Tina never had a single complaint. She treated my baby with love and kindness the entire time. I felt so at ease knowing she was there. Tina is amazing and bordering on sainthood for having to deal with my destructive baby while I was away! I HIGHLY recommend Tina to anyone!!
Tina did a great job taking care of my Newfie and keeping me updated while I was away.
Tina was great! She also responded yo messages quickly. While my husband and I were out of town, she sent us pictures of our puppy.
Tina took very good care of my Bella. I love that she took her for walks and to the dog park. Bella came back tired but happy.
Alabama always has a good experience at Tina's
Tina is great!!
Alabama loves her!!! She's apart of the family
Home away from Home!!!
Bear had a great staycation at Tina's! He played well with her pup, Ruby, and seemed very comfortable with Tina. She gave frequent updates and made us feel at ease knowing Bear was being taken care of and having fun.
A+ as usual
We've used Tina a few times now and every time has been great. Lots of pictures and her dog Ruby is great!
Tina was wonderful! Kori had a great time with her and her puppy Ruby. She sent pictures showing what a wonderful time and care Kori was having. Many many thanks to Tina and I would recommend her to anyone!
Tina was dogs were very well cared for and happy and they fell in love with Tina ..Tina was even able to keep my little grumpy older guy happy. Tina kept my tiny dachshunds along with her dog and another much larger dog for 10 days and made so much effort to see that they were all happy and had all the love and care they could want. I am so pleased and very happy and will not hesitate to contact Tina anytime I need to send my babies off to grandma's house for vacation..I can't say enough good things about how much she gave to keep them happy...go on and book with her I guarantee that you will be as pleased as I am...thank you Tina for being the great person that you are..
My dogs always have so much fun with Tina! She is so great with them. I would recommend it to anyone. She has so much patience. She is such a great person!
We cannot thank Tina enough for the great care she provided us and our dog, Jasper. She met with us before our stay on short notice, and we couldn't be happier. Jasper loved "staying at Grandma's house," and we will gladly be requesting Tina's services again!
Tina was great to us and our pup, Contessa. She went out of her way to arrange a meet and greet before the stay, and assured us Contessa would be safe and cared for. She was! Tina sent us multiple updates throughout the stay, which was greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Tina, for helping to ease our nerves since this was the first time leaving our baby overnight. We're happy to recommend Tina and DogVacay!
Tina is very sweet. Fergie took to her right away! Her house was nice and clean. I would not hesitate to recommend her. Looking forward to using her services again!
Tina is Great.
My black lab had a fantastic time with Tina! Tina sent frequent pictures of Olive playing with other dogs and having lots of fun. I could tell Olive was in good hands. I would, absolutely, recommend Tina and Dogvacay to anyone in place of boarding their dog.
Well Tina was really Awesome! When she initially met my pumpkin she displayed so much love and compassion giving her a big hug!! I could tell that she is experienced and really felt comfortable! I highly recommend her!
Tina was great! Toby loved her. She took him to dog parks and even gave him a bath when he got muddy. I will definitely use her again!
She is so good; I asked her if I could keep her(my) enjoys being there and I feel at peace with him there.
This was the third time we've left our pups with Tina. As usual, she was great.

We're about to move away from Cleveland and I really wish we had found Tina earlier. We've boarded our dogs a few times over the past few years while we've been in Cleveland and Tina's probably the best dog sitter around.
Tina watched my dogs twice in quick succession. When we first dropped them off with her Milla was not really happy about it.

I just picked them up after their second stay with Tina and Milla didn't even want to come home! That's a first. She's really clingy with me and I've never seen her like that with someone else (so the only knock on Tina is that Milla loved her so much that it made me feel less special!).
Tina was great with my dogs. They loved her.
Tina was so great with the dogs.I loved that she sent pictures of them daily. They had such a great time with her. I would recommend her to anyone.
Tina is awesome with Bama. She keeps us updated with pictures during his stay. It's like he's with family. She gives him lots of love and hugs. I would recommend her when you have to be away from your dog. Ellen
Tina is great! She's incredibly nice, very great with animals, and she treats my dog almost better than I treat my dog. My dog truly goes "on vacation" when she stays with Tina. My dog Ember is super friendly but she gets anxious when I'm not around, and is why she doesn't do well at boarding. Tina has become like a second mom to Ember, which makes it so much easier for me when I need to travel because I don't have to worry about her. I only wish that Tina were my neighbor because that would rock, and I hesitated writing this review because I don't ever want her to be unavailable for Ember.
