Dog Boarding

If you're in need of a trustworthy and experienced dog sitter, look no further than Jessica and her boyfriend. Our recent experience with them was absolutely amazing. From the moment we dropped off our furry friend, we knew he was in great hands. Jessica and her boyfriend are clearly experienced with dogs, and they have a natural love and affection for them that was evident in the way they cared for our pup. Not only did they provide a comfortable and cozy home for our puppy, and took him on long walks and even sent us frequent updates and photos to keep us updated on how he was doing. We feel incredibly lucky to have found such caring and responsible dog sitters like Jessica and her boyfriend. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable and experienced dog sitter. Their attention to detail, compassion, and dedication to the well-being of their furry charges make them an exceptional choice for anyone looking for someone to take care of their pets. Thank you!

I recently had the pleasure of entrusting Naz with the care of my rescued dog, Zoya, and I’m very happy with this experience. Naz is an exceptional dog sitter who clearly has a deep understanding and passion for dogs. From the moment I met Naz, I could tell that she had a natural connection with animals. Her interactions with Zoya were filled with warmth and love, showcasing her expertise in handling dogs of all temperaments. One of the most delightful features of Naz's care was her convenient proximity to a beautiful park. Zoya got to enjoy daily walks in the park, which was a perfect way to keep her active and engaged. I loved receiving regular updates from Naz, including photos and videos of Zoya having a great time. These updates really made my day and assured me that Zoya was in safe and caring hands. Naz's attention to detail and genuine care for animals truly set her apart. She followed all of Zoya's specific needs and routines meticulously, making the whole experience seamless and stress-free. I felt entirely comfortable leaving my fur baby with her. If you want someone who truly loves and connects with dogs, and goes above and beyond to ensure their well-being, Naz is the perfect choice. I will undoubtedly be using her services again in the future. Thank you, Naz, for taking care of Zoya like she was your own. You are a gem of a dog sitter!
