We just moved to WNC and suddenly had to go out of town. No time to get to know neighbors or make friends. We couldn’t put our pets through another long trip so we decided to try Rover. It is a bit overwhelming to sort through all of the profiles but we got lucky. We chose Ginny because of her experience, and we got more than we expected. Not only did she love our ...

This was our first time having Ginny come take care of Gizmo and Webster while we were away and she had her hands full! Webster had just had surgery on his ear and had to wear a cone and was eating and drinking very little. He was not a happy little boy! Ginny was wonderful!! She communicated and sent pictures every day. When we got home he was feeling much better! Ginny went above and ...

There's No Place Like Home

About this sitter: I have worked as a veterinary technician, receptionist, kennel attendant and I started as a groomer's assistant.

I even spent 2 years at NCSU Vet School in Raleigh, and ...

What Ginny would like to know about your dog

I love all breeds, great and small. I have a special love of rescues and mixed breeds but love seeing those gorgeous pure bred dogs too. I always prefer to set-up a meet and greet to see what the dog's personality is like and discuss what specific needs they may have.

Can provide daily exercise

We can run in the backyard, walk around the neighborhood, or even head down to the nearest park. I pick up 100# Newfoundland up from Doggie Daycare several days a week. I've even taken dogs swimming and to the beach, so for a little extra gas money, we can go for Parkway rides and trail walks. I am there to ensure that they have a great vacation too.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
In your bed, lol. Or wherever your dog normally sleeps. That's the beauty of petsitting in your home. It allows for them to follow their normal routine, even if you're away.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Everything I do is customized to them. So whether you want two, three, or four visits, we'll work all that out.
I try to devote about 45-60 minutes per visit, but we will follow your routine so I tailor to your pets specific needs. If your Labrador wants to play fetch, but your Bichon like to be brushed and sit in your lap, then that's what we do. Over the years, I have gone to see dogs as little as once a day to feed if they had a dog door and ate in the morning, up to four times per day so my junior and senior pets can walk and go out every few hours. I prefer to sleep on at home on my Tempur-pedic, but other than that, I am willing to acomodate whatever your pet needs

Extra house-sitting services
Sure, I'd be happy to water plants, switch lights and open curtains, take trash to the curb, bring in the mail. I can even arrange house cleaning services during or at a separate time. I have lots of bathing and grooming experience so I'm happy to bathe, trim nails, clean ears, and even express glands.
