Virginia was MORE than what I could ask for. So knowledgeable, and informative. She kept me updated through out the day and ensured my new pup would be well taken care of. I would use her again for sure. Best service ever

My dog Winston had his first doggy-day-care experience with Ginnie last week. I thought he might be anxious, but Ginnie made him very comfortable, and she kept me updated during the day. He enjoyed the companionship of the other dogs and playing with them in her big back yard. I am very pleased and highly recommend Ginnie!

I am very skeptical of where my furbaby is boarded. This is my 2nd time using Rover and I've not been disappointed. This visit was awesome as Virginia was highly recommended. She sent pics and daily updates on how Chase was going. He was having the best time. I look forward to my next trip so I can bring him back.

If you love them, so will I!

My husband and I are volunteer members of Animal Rescue; we have had all ages, all types, and all sizes of pets since we first had a home (1995). I am accustomed and sensitive to special-needs pets, those on special diets or medications, I have a local vet whom I would contact instantly if I see that a furry or feathered pal is acting peculiarly or seems not to feel well, and I would contact ...

What Virginia would like to know about your dog

Are they housebroken, do they have meds or special food given to them, whether they tend to be aggressive or hostile (which doesn't necessarily rule them out for me; I just need to know what to expect), have they ever bitten anyone, what kinds of treats do they like best, how many walks per day do they need, do they drink a lot of water, what are their favorite toys and games, would it be all right to take them for short rides in the car (if they like rides), is there anything--health- or otherwise--that I need to know about them before I begin working with them.

When Virginia watches your pet

I will play whatever games the furry guy or girl likes the most--fetch, racing each other, going for rides (subject to owner approval), tug-o'-war with a tugging toy, take toys and hide them all over the house and accompany the pet as s/he looks for them, playing tricks that the pet knows and enjoys, and if the animal likes it, lots of belly-rubbing and cuddling. I usually play with toys for cats and let them find their own level of intimacy (sitting in lap, being petted, Snuggling and cuddling, etc.), since I've discovered (having had plenty of my own) that cats tend to be more independent and often not so people-oriented as dogs. If they DO like to snuggle, they are allowed to sit with or on me any place they like, and I will give them lots of petting and love.
