My boyfriend Ray and his dog "Marley" live in NJ and I live in FL. Ray had made a decision to surprise me because we would not see each other from August to end of December, when I would be going up to NJ for Christmas. So on the Thursday before Sandy hit the northeast Ray decided to surprise me and flew down to FL - for what he thought would be a few days. Meanwhile, he had found out about Aunt Darlene's from his neighbor because he did not want to fly with Marley since he was only coming for a few days. Ray went to meet Darlene and the facility and he was immediately impressed because of the care and love they showed for the dogs and because of the environment. Long story short - the storm hit and Ray got "stuck" in FL for about 10 days.... I was very happy. But he was very worried about Marley and when he spoke with Aunt Darlene to let her know about the situation and that he would need her to keep Marley longer - she was very amenable and gracious. It so happened that the stay extended even longer because of the severity of the storm. However, Aunt Darlene & Uncle Tom were very accommodating and very pleased to help out with Marley.
Both Ray and I were very happy and very satisfied to see how caring and wonderful Darlene & Tom were with our dog through a very trying and uncertain time.
We highly recommend their services, their warm and affectionate attitude toward the pets put in their care and thank them very much for all they for us...

I just wanted to take a few moments to thank Darlene for setting me up with Gino and his wonderful family to watch our Australian Labradoodle, Dexter. He is an anxious guy and I wanted him to be boarded in a cage free environment. I met Darlene on our meet and greet and she was wonderful. Gino and his family are such extraordinary people and so caring. We left Dexter for 5 days for our vacation but then we were stuck in Florida due to Hurricane Sandy and had to keep Dexter with Gino for an extra 5 days. Gino and I spoke via text daily and informed me that Dexter was having a wonderful time under the circumstances. We already have dates booked for Thanksgiving and Christmas week. Dexter had a blast and can't wait to spend more time with his new friends.

Thank you so much!!!!

We read a large number of excellent reviews about Aunt Darlene's pet-sitting and dog walking services, but were still nervous dropping our dog off for a two week vacation; it would be the first time we left her with anyone but family and she has some attachment issues, to put it mildly.
Any concerns we had about whether our girl would be happy at Aunt Darlene's were put to rest the minute we entered their clean, pet-friendly home for the initial meet and greet. Tom and Darlene clearly love animals and know how to care for them, but what sets them apart is their ability to put people--as well as pets--at ease. They cared for our girl as if she was part of their family, and when we picked her up two weeks later, she was happy to see us, but sad to say goodbye to Darlene and Tom and her new doggie friends.
I'm so glad all the positive reviews turned out to be accurate, and we're relieved to have found a wonderful place where we can leave our dog and know that she'll be happy, taken excellent care of, and treated like family.
These guys are truly great! We've also used their Dog Walking service and Crystle, one of their walkers, did a great job with our pet and our home.
These guys really are wonderful and I recommend them whole-heartedly.

Aunt Darlene's is simply the best!!! Darlene and Tom are wonderful people who love dogs and know how to care for them... Our Morkie Roxy has been "sleeping" over for a year now....Sometimes for a night or 2 and other times for a week. but regardless of the time.. We know that Roxy is well cared for, comfortable and happy at Aunt Darlene's. Like going to a home away from home! The dogs have a schedule which includes naptime, indoor and outdoor playtime. Our Roxy makes many friends and has fun...Now how do I know this? Tom has sent me videos of Roxy's antics running in the yard and playing with the other dogs.....happy and funny stuff!...which makes me even more comfortable and secure that Roxy is in good hands and having the time of her life on her mini vacations.....Which in turn allows my husband and I to enjoy our vacations without worrying if our " dogter" is alright!! Thanks Darlene and Tom for running a business with attention to detail, intelligence, kindness and caring !!! Roxy looks forward to her visits for years to come!!!

This was the first time I ever left my dog overnight for a week. Gino was WONDERFUL and treated my dog like it was his own.  He also kept me posted by answering my e mails and sending me pictures of my buddy having fun. I HIGHLY recommend them.

Thank you,
Regina Q

Our puppy, Gordon, just came home after 10 days at Gino and Carly's. We are so pleased with the service and the great care he received. I could not bear the thought of leaving him alone in a typical kennel setting. He is used to being around people so he adjusted nicely! He played with other dogs and had a blast-I know this from the text message pictures Gino sent! Thank you again!

Go away with peace of mind!

We went on vacation for the week of July 4th. This was the first time our Boxer, Bella stayed away from home. She stayed with Gino and Carla and they were wonderful with her. She was treated by them as part of their family. I was worried that she would be lonesome, but boy I was wrong. I E-mailed Gino and he sent me a picture of her playing with the other dogs. She was having so much fun! This quickly eased my mind and we were able to enjoy our vacation without worrying about her. They are so good with dogs, and it is clear they enjoy what they do so much. I actually think Bella missed them! I will certainly have Gino and Carla from Aunt Darlene's pet sitting. Even for a few days. Aunt Darlene's is top notch! 5 stars!

I would love to give "Uncle Gino" 5 stars but I'd rather not only because I want to keep him for myself, HAHA! Gino is the best. From the first time I met him, I Knew he would be perfect for my babies! My Siberian Husky, Ice, is afraid of men, but Ice didn't even think twice n went right to Gino. My boys stayed with Gino for over two weeks, with my Ice becoming Gino's shadow and my lil MoMo being the little mascot that all the other dogs loved! Gino kept me up to date with texts and pictures. It was such a huge relief to have such peace of mind knowing my boys were in great care! I would pick Gino over family to watch my boys from now on :-) *****

Gino watched my Minpin, Sisko for almost a week and I could not be happier with the service. Sisko was happy and safe, and I know he had a great time while I was away. I HIGHLY recommend this service. Gino even texted photos while I was way, to show me that my dog was doing well. I will definitely be using this service again! Thanks guys!

Kimberly M.

As a first time user of Aunt Darlene's pet sitting service I can happily say I am already planning our next trip. We have two Siberian Husky mixes who have never been boarded before! Upon meeting Gino Gambino and his family we were immediately relieved. Gino and his family were extremely welcoming and warm. You can tell they really love animals! Gino even emailed us with photos of the dogs hanging out while we were away! I truly felt our dogs were on a vacation of their own! Darlene was very thorough with our dog's food instructions and even took into consideration each dog's personality and behaviors. Gino was kind enough to brush our dog Shadow (she was shedding) and when picked her up she looked great! I feel such a sense of relief knowing we have a wonderful family to leave our dogs with when we travel! I have already begun to recommend Aunt Darlene's pet sitting service to friends!

I just wanted to write a note of thanks and appreciation to Aunt Darlene's.... This past weekend was the first time I had used someone outside of my family/friends to watch my dog (Norwegian Elkhound). When I met with Darlene and Gino prior to my vacation, I knew Dakota would be in good hands. When I picked Dakota up I could tell she had a great time with Gino and his family (and the other dogs), so great that she slept the rest of the day! Bottom line, I would absolutely recommend Aunt Darlene's and would definitely take Dakota back to Gino's the next time we go on vacation. Thanks Gino!!

Hi Darlene and Tom,
Just wanted to say "Thank You Sooo Much" for taking care of Sox for us last weekend. You two are very special people to take other people's pets into your home and love them and treat them like they're your own. This was the first time we've left our "Baby" with anyone other than a family member and we were very apprehensive about doing so. After our "meet and greet" I felt totally comfortable leaving Sox with you. When I dropped her off she was quite nervous but Tom said he just held her til she calmed down and then they fell asleep together on the couch! How sweet is that??? Whenever we've left her in the past, she comes home with sort of an attitude and acts like she's mad at us for a few days, but NOT with you guys!! We picked her up, brought her home and she was perfect! Thanks again! Looking forward to her stay in July!
