Dog Boarding
Ivan, 25-01-2023
I recently used Maria's dog boarding services for the second time, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Maria is truly a dog lover and it shows in the way she takes care of her furry guests. From the moment I dropped off my dog Buddy, I could tell that he was in great hands. Maria was very friendly and professional, and she took the time to get to know both Buddy and myself. Throughout his stay, she sent me daily updates and pictures, which helped to ease my mind while I was away. Buddy came back happy and well-cared for, just like the first time. I highly recommend Maria's dog boarding services and will definitely be using them again in the future.

Can't recommend Sandra and Martin enough! They clearly love dogs and my two had a fantastic time during their stay. It's hard to find dog sitters in Ireland that have the same mindset as me as a lot of places seem to only offer kennelling rather than in home minding. Sandra and Martin welcome the dogs into their home (and hearts) and let the dogs snuggle with them on the sofa in the living room - just like my dogs do at home! They clearly love dogs and have their best interests at heart. Sandra kept me well updated with photos and messages throughout which was much appreciated and I'm already looking at the diary to book in the next stay. Thank you both for minding my dogs so well!

What are home dog boarding services?

Where will my dog be staying?

Your dog will be staying at the sitter's home. Be sure to discuss any requirements with your sitter prior to booking. The more your sitter knows about your pet, the better! That way they can really ensure that your pet has the best and most comfortable stay.
