Dog Boarding
Ramez, 02-09-2023
I recently had the pleasure of entrusting my beloved furry friend to Danil, and I couldn't be happier with the outstanding care my dog received during their stay. Their warm and welcoming demeanor instantly put both me and my dog at ease. It was evident that my dog felt comfortable and safe in their care, which is the most important factor for me when choosing a dog sitter. Danil went above and beyond in terms of communication. I received regular updates, including photos and messages about how my dog was doing. This not only reassured me but also allowed me to enjoy my time away with peace of mind, knowing that my furry friend was in excellent hands. I appreciated Danil's flexibility and professionalism throughout the entire process, from booking to pickup. They were accommodating of my schedule and made the entire experience hassle-free. I will definitely be returning for their services in the future. If you're looking for a dog sitter who treats your furry friend like family and provides a safe, loving, and personalized experience, look no further than Danil.

Felicity was an incredible dog sitter. She made me feel completely at ease by leaving the dog with her as she provided daily updates and photos of their adventures together. She followed my instructions for care and had amazing communication. My dog looked perfect when I picked him up and was very happy and well cared for even spoiled. I already made a second booking with her and will use her again anytime I go on vacation. She is an excellent pet sitter and would trust her implicitly!
