It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Ana and Breno. They took great care of our bichon frise at very short notice on our part!! ☺️ Breno replies very quickly and does everything in his power to make sure the owners and the pet is comfortable, safe and content. It truly is a home from home. We got regular updates and lovely pictures throughout our pets stay. Breno and Ana goes over and beyond and brought our pet on a morning walk and we were very grateful for this as this really helps our pet stay regulated and be happy. When we collected our dog, it was very obvious he gained so much love and attention and didn’t want to leave Breno. We feel our pet was very relaxed and happy throughout his stay. The location is a great area and easy to find and very pet friendly. We highly recommend Breno and Ana to any pet owners and we can guarantee your pets will be minded to the highest standard. Breno works from home and I think it was lovely that our pet was being supervised all the time which put us at great ease. Ana and Breno are very kind, warm, friendly and extremely professional and very dog friendly and conscientious. Thank you so so much guys and we will book again. Everyone book Breno and Ana, your pet is in great hands! Looking forward to booking again with you both ☺️ Best wishes, Bláithín, Michael and Merriman 🐶

Laura took care of my three year old terrier while my partner and I were on annual leave. We’ve never left her to go on holiday before so we’re really hoping to find a caring dog sitter. When I contacted Laura, she was very communicative and flexible from the beginning. My dog stayed with Laura for 10 nights. During that time she kept to her schedule, food, and showed her lots of affection and care. We received daily updates and videos so we were feeling very relaxed knowing that our dog was in good hands. I couldn’t recommend Laura more! She is so kind and really cared for our dog. We are so grateful to have found her. It really made our holiday stress free. I will definitely be booking with Laura again in the future.
