I was very pleased with the level of care that Alexa provided to Maverick. She provided regular updates, was easy to work with and very friendly. I would book Alexa again to watch Maverick.
Alexa was awesome, my first time boarding and she was beyond my expectations!
Cathy is awesome! This was my first time using Wag and she was a perfect fit for Finley. He s still a puppy and she took great care of him while I was away for two weeks. I will use her again when I am out of town!
Shontoya was fabulous with Penny and kept me updated on what was going on throughout the weekend. She s awesome and I highly recommend!
I was anxious using a new sitter for my Macie, but Faith put me at ease. She allowed me to meet and see the space Macie would be staying in in advance. She was communicative throughout the whole process and stay, sending notes and pictures, which were so appreciated. I could tell when I picked up Macie that she had felt at home with Faith.
Faith was SO great with Bello! He looked very happy and comfortable with her and I 100% would trust her to watch him again.
She did an amazing job with my pups first time being boarded!!
Shelby was super friendly and hospitable to my pups. She communicated well and made me feel comfortable leaving my two babies with her. Would definitely recommend!
Thank you for loving my babe while we were away! Great service and appreciate you washing his blankets and bowls for us! :)
Candace is friendly and we appreciate how flexible she was with pick up and drop off times. The joy on her face when she met my pup let me know she was in good hands.
