Dog Boarding
Yann, 28-11-2022
We have a 2.5 years old standard poodle and this was the first time in his life that he was spending more than 3 consecutive days outside of our home being looked after by someone different than a family member. Everything went super well, Zhen updated us via the app on a daily basis, sending pictures and a few words to reassure us. Our dog spent a wonderful week at Zhen's farm, getting plenty of exercise and socializing with other dogs on a daily basis. Zhen understands dog behaviour and psychology very well and it shows. He took the time to explained to me clearly how his daily routine with the dogs happened, the feeding and play time schedule as well as the relax times throughout the day before taking him in. He is very professional and reassuring. At the end of the 7 days stay with Zhen, my dog was happy to see me and his behaviour at home was exactly the same as before he left which tells me that he had a great time at the farm and was well treated and respected by Zhen and his family. I highly recommend Zhen's dog boarding services. I have found the perfect dog sitter for my poodle and will use his services in the near future

If you are looking for a good care and loving couple to take care of your pets, Evelyn and Marko are perfect for the job. They are the best sitters for your pet, with lots of love and the best communication with you at all times of the day. Padme was very happy with them all the week and they have a great time together, they gave Padme a home. I am very grateful to found them and I definitely recommend them for pet sitters. I hope you have the same luck as we to have Evelyn and Marko as pet sitters. Thanks both!

Where will my dog be staying?

Your dog will be staying at the sitter's home. Be sure to discuss any requirements with your sitter prior to booking. The more your sitter knows about your pet, the better! That way they can really ensure that your pet has the best and most comfortable stay.
