Ivan was absolutely great!! He took a last-minute appointment and sent video's everyday. Malaika was happy the entire time I could see it through the phone. He is the only person that actually tried to build a bond with her, hence the only person that we will use for her.
Ivan was amazing with Pickles. He always gave me updates, and took him out for lots of walks, and even took him to the beach in San Francisco. My mind was at ease and I wasn t worried at all, as I know he was getting the love and care he deserves. I would definitely re book with Ivan. Thank you so much!!
Ivan was easy to work with and kept me updated on Ursula with great pictures of her having fun. He s great with dogs and gives them lots of care.
Keith was simply the best with my two very high energy dogs for the day! Incredibly communicative, flexible and kind!
I can t say enough about Danielle. She was the first sitter that s ever had an overnight with big buddy Rod and she knocked it out of the park. Rodney is a big friendly buddy who is strong and can be stubborn sometimes but Danielle proved that she s a dog handler to the T. Treated rod like her was her own and sent me amazingly cute videos and updates. Rod will be a returning pup!!
Carrie was wonderful!!! Maximus came home tired and happy!! She was so responsive and let me know how he was doing the whole time she had him. I absolutely trust Carrie and will use her again.
Very friendly and my dogs loved her!
Irina was amazing and took such great care of Frankie! I highly recommend her.
Thanks for taking care of the boys!
She gave me updates throughout my pups boarding, WHICH IS A PLUS!
