My Italian Greyhound is 14 y/o and is completely blind. Kristina has always kept the best care of my Zeus when I have to travel for work. I trust only Kristina to keep my precious boy.
Judy was amazing taking care of my golden. Thanks again.
Michele was great! She sent us lots of updates, and I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her.
Kristina is my go-to trusted sitter for my precious Zeus! He also loved getting to be social! Excellent job!
Communication was fantastic the entire stay. My pups received all of the love and attention that they could ever ask for. Couldn t have asked for a better experience.
Kristina was an amazing caregiver. I had complete confidence that he was in great hands - and he was! The regular check-ins with pictures eased my nerves as a pet parent. 10/10 recommend! I will be using her as his caregiver for the future!!
We knew our energetic pup was in good hands with Kristina in her dog-loving home! Our dog was all smiles and ready for a long nap after having an exciting day of attention and play. Thank you for taking such good care of her!
Marissa was so flexible and is so kind. Maya is older and has a few quirks to her and Marissa took everything in stride and provided Maya with a great place to be. She followed every instruction and detail. Plus I got a daily recap of how Maya was doing. Will definitely be back!
Marissa was great! I felt so comfortable with her watching my pup. Very communicative & helpful!
Rosalind was a fabulous caregiver! She was very communicative and sent lots of pictures and videos! I knew after our first conversation Nox was in great hands! It was so much fun to how Nox handles different situations and bc of her communication we got to see it!!
