LaaLaa stayed with Gilbert and his pups for 10 days. He is very shy and anxious around strangers but he came home all relaxed, thanks to Gilbert! Definitely recommend Gilbert and for sure will ask Gilbert to watch LaaLaa again.

Gilbert was great with LaaLaa. LaaLaa is usually very anxious with strangers so I was worried since it's his first time with Gilbert. He was all relaxed when I picked him up. Thanks to Gilbert and his pups. Already booked Gilbert for LaaLaa for my coming trip. I am very happy to find Gilbert, will be a return customer for sure.

Playmates for your Pooch!

Dogs don't like being in cages, among crying dogs, anymore than you do! So, why not let your pooch stay with me and my two pugs - "Ginger and Posh." I raised them from pups and they are the world to me as I'm sure yours is to you! They are playful and spunky sisters! My studio apartment is next door to a corner of Judkins Park, and its spacious green fields, trails and shrubs ...

What Gilbert would like to know about your dog

I think length of time with their owner(s) is important. I generally believe dog-owners are good folk at heart and the longer together with their pooch, the more the pooch reflects their owners' personality.

Of course, basics are important: Licensed? Chipped? Spayed/neutered? All inoculations? What bothers them when being walked: joggers, bikes, strollers, crowds? Have they been boarded before? If so, at a kennel or home? How often? Any formal training? Please - no dogs with ear infections. Also, I prefer short hair to really long hair as I do not include grooming services unless specifically requested. Grooming is extra and is limited to brushing - no bathing or haircuts.

When Gilbert watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Judkins Park is the best! If you are not familiar, it is the park built on the I-90 tunnel lid! It is huge! Expansive lawns, with trees and bushes galore! Plenty of spaces to explore and 'sniff out!' Your pooch will LOVE it!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
My pugs sleep indoors - year around. They like to sleep under the bed, or on the couch, or on their own bed. It depends on whether I am watching TV, and if so, the couch is their usual choice (so they can watch it too!).

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am with my pugs all day long - 24/7/365 - so, rest assured that I will be with your pooch every minute you trust them to me! Our tail-wagging guests will never, ever be left alone!
