This was our first time using the Wag app to find a last minute boarding situation over the Christmas holiday for our two dogs. We were anxious but found that the app was very informative. We were so grateful and fortunate to be matched up with Jasmine and her family. They were really quick and responsive once we contacted them through the app and we were able to arrange for pick up for the dogs from our other caregiver situation that fell through. Throughout the boarding stay Jasmine was super communicative and posted little video gems of our babies that we loved receiving. If she had a question or concern she brought it up right away. We felt that they treated our two dog like their own. They were well loved and we could tell that when we picked them up the dogs felt very connected to their family. I would highly recommend Jasmine for anyone looking for a boarding situation. They helped us salvage our Christmas vacation plans by agreeing to care for our two fur babies.
Lucy took such excellent care of Dollar and included photos and videos to assure us he was doing well! We will be booking with Lucy again!
Thanks so much!
She is a very friendly girl and likes my dogs
Madelyn is amazing
Charlie doesn t trust a lot of people & Madelyn does a great job in gaining his trust. He s also tired after his walks & it s so good!
We haven t had others walk Charlie, our little rescue & Madelyn did such a great job! We re excited to have her come back & walk him again.
We are new to Wag and Madelyn helped us feel comfortable with this process and provided great communication. Our pups were so happy to have her visit and I m sure look forward to seeing her again
Thank you so much!
