Dog Boarding

Dani recently minded our two Boston terriers for two nights and I am so, so happy to have found her on Pawshake. From my initial communication with Dani, I found her prompt with her replies, courteous and very friendly. My partner and I met Dani in our local park and that first meeting sealed the deal. When you see Dani for the first time, you will meet a kind, loving and caring woman who absolutely loves and adores pets. When we met her she was minding a number of dogs so we could witness first hand how happy and cared for they were. While we were away, Dani send us lots of photos and videos of our dogs and those visual images really put us at ease knowing that our dogs were being minded, cared for and well looked after. So much so that when we collected the dogs, while they were happy to see us, you could see that they were equally happy to stay with Dani! Dani, thank you so much for minding our dogs. The work you do is not just a job, it is a vocation - you are a wonderful person and I feel truly blessed to have met you. Without a doubt, we will be definitely booking Dani in the future.

I would highly recommend Johnathan as a dog sitter. We met him while attending a dog training course and our puppy loved him so much we asked if he did pet sitting. Luckily he did, so at our fist holiday we left our little dog Roxy with Johnathan for 7 nights. We had no stress at all, knowing she was in good hands with Johnathan who is amazing with dogs. We picked up a very happy dog with tons of energy at the end of it, so we will definitely be using him again.
