We were extremely nervous as our dog like many people are our children. Gabriela did a great job answering any of our questions and ensuring we were comfortable with her and our pets.

Gabriela has watched my two kitties a couple times and has been great for them! She does a great job giving them cuddles and is prompt and communicative with me while I’m away. Highly recommend her!

Pet lover--Just moved to Houston!

I have A LOT of experience with all types of animals after having my own and working/volunteering at a rescue facility and helping out a vet over the summer. I LOVE working with animals, which is why I have spent 9+ years petsitting instead of more conventional types of part time jobs to fund my education and other expenses. I have no problem administering medication (even with the tricky pups!) and have worked with ...

What Gabriela would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences.
Before scheduled to sit: What are you as the client looking for? More hands on? I have never turned down a job although my rates vary.
If I am scheduled to sit: I would like to know temperament, if they get along with other dogs, if they have any special needs, what their daily routine looks like, areas they do/don't like rubs/pets, if I should be careful going in and out of doors (for the escape happy), if and when they need to be in a crate (just to sleep, when I am not present, etc), vet number, emergency contact, etc.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise
Injected Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience

When Gabriela watches your pet

I live right by Tudek park, which features both a dog park and plenty of trails. Depending on the dog, I can offer regular walks, runs, and play time--really whatever you see fit! I have even taken my clients' dogs to local state parks for hikes and a swim if they okay it and weather permits!
