Whitney was such a big help, she committed to a boarding service during a holiday week for me, and last minute. So appreciated. Bentley was happy and I got updates everyday. Thank you Whitney!
Whitney was AMAZING! She was super communicative- lots of pictures and detailed updates. She treated my little guy like he was her own. Thank you, Whitney!!
Tisha was great! She kept me updated frequently. It takes a special person to put up with his frenchie antics. She completely made me feel comfortable. I was able to relax on my trip and not stress about my lil man. She treated him like her own. Thank you so much Tisha!!!
