Dog Boarding

Kim did an excellent job taking care of our energetic nine-month-old puppy. We immediately felt comfortable with her. She clearly knows her way around dogs! She has tons of training and experience, and took a calm, structured approach that worked very well for our dog. Her place is very well set up for dog boarding. Kim's dog Peaches was very welcoming too, and quickly made friends with our dog. When we picked our puppy up, Kim offered some great training tips that we really appreciated as well. Very highly recommended!

[ENGLISH FOLLOWS] Sarah est une gardienne consciencieuse et généreuse de son temps. Elle m’a envoyé plein de photos de mon petit Bécot! 😊 Elle prend le temps de bien s’informer des particularités et des besoins du chien qu’elle garde. Elle n’hésite pas à faire un brin de toilette lorsque la boue est au rendez-vous de certains jours pluvieux du printemps. Elle est aussi très empathique face au propriétaire du chien. Je recommande fortement les services de Sarah! Sarah is a conscientious dog sitter and she is generous of her time. She sent me lots of pictures of my little Bécot! She takes the time to be well informed about the particularities and needs of the dog she keeps. She does not hesitate to make a little grooming when the mud is at the rendezvous of some rainy days of spring. She is also very empathetic to the owner of the dog. I highly recommend Sarah’s services!
