Dog Boarding

I recently had the pleasure of getting Juan’s service to take care of my dog while I was away, and I couldn't be more satisfied with the service provided. From the start, Juan was professional, attentive, and clearly passionate about pets. Each day, I received delightful updates with pictures, which truly put my mind at ease. It was evident that my dog was not just being looked after but genuinely cared for and loved. The photos captured happy walks, playtime, and even some adorable nap moments. Communication was seamless throughout the entire period. Juan promptly responded to any questions I had and even went the extra mile to ensure my dog’s eating routine was maintained perfectly. Returning home, I found my dog happy, healthy, and content, which speaks volumes about the excellent care provided. I wholeheartedly recommend Juan to anyone seeking a reliable, caring, and professional dog sitter. Thank you for your outstanding service!

Elena is an amazing pet sitter. She took such good care of our little French bulldog Fiona who can be a bit of a challenge. Fiona does not like other dogs and can be quite stubborn on the leash when she sees one. Elena was patient and loving with Fiona just like it was her own dog. She sent us loads of videos and pictures for the 3 weeks she had Fiona. It was super easy to communicate with Elena. I’m thrilled we finally found a trusty pet sitter. We will definetly ask her again. Highly recommend!
