I appreciate Sue s responsiveness! My puppies seemed loved and I truly enjoyed being away worry free.
Roxy had so much fun at your house. Thank you for taking good care of her.
Ashlyn was fantastic. I gained full trust in her immediately with how she presented herself and her pups. She took my baby in with open arms, and last minute, for the whole day. She sent pictures and texts to keep me updated on my dog. Highly recommend and will definitely reach out to Ashlyn the next time I am in the KC area for all my dog boarding needs. Again, thank you a ton!
Ashlyn did a great job integrating my pup within her home and with her dogs. Ashlyn sent me updates and pictures letting me know how well my dog was doing. It put me as ease having Ashlyn watch my dog.
Alondra was so great in keeping us updated with pictures throughout their stay with her. So thankful she was able to help us and take amazing care of our two dogs!
Alondra was an amazing pet sitter for our dog, she helped out us a lot and was very flexible during snow time in Seattle area, Kuzco had a wonderful time and I would recommend her for any pet sitter needed in the future
Added to my preferred caregivers! Great service!
Terri was very nice and DD a great job with Portia. She kept me updated the whole time I was gone and made me feel at ease about being away from my dog.
Good person and friend of furries!
