Dog Boarding
Kristy, 15-05-2023
John was an exceptional companion for our dog, and I couldn't be happier with the care he provided. John was very patient and accommodating to ensure our dog was in the perfect environment to become comfortable. John also sent updates every day with photos and were greatly appreciated and gave me peace of mind. It's evident that he takes his role as a dog sitter seriously and genuinely cares about the well-being of the animals under his care. I wholeheartedly recommend John to anyone in need of a trustworthy and caring dog sitter.

We were very worried about leaving our 7 month old huge Goldendoodle as it was our first time to leave him. We need not have worried. From the first meet & greet we did with Danilo we knew they were the dog sitters for us. They have a golden retriever called Cuba who was as warm and welcoming as her owners. Danilo sent us videos and photos each day which not only put a smile on our face but it put us at ease too. Our flight was really delayed coming home and Danilo was really accommodating with us. We were nervous of using an app we didn't know, a dog sitter we didn't know in a place we didn't know but I cannot recommend him highly enough. Our dog came back with exactly the same temperament he had when we left and still in the same habits as when we left. If you are looking for a home from home service with your routines still followed and a very Happy dog returning to you I can't speak highly enough of our experience and have booked Danilo again for 3 weeks on the summer. 100% genuine, 100% loves dogs and will 100% treats your dog as his own. Thank you Danilo for giving Hamish a lovely holiday while we were on ours ❤️
