Dog Boarding
Madeleine, 26-10-2021
Joy has taken care of my pup and cat for the past 3 years. She’s taken the best care of them and she treats your pets like her own. She updates you with many pictures daily and my dog always comes home so happy and injury free. I have a very high energy dog and she ensures he gets enough play time everyday. She’s amazing at introducing dogs and she does it in a friendly and non-threatening way. She’s the best petsitter I have ever been to and every time I sent my pets there, I know they are going to be in optimal care in the best hands.

I may not have enough words to describe my satisfaction and gratefulness to Tara and to how well she minded our dog. She was the most flexible I could ever ask for, both with postponing the start date of the original booking, as well as with allowing a short notice additional booking (this one I'm reviewing). When I left our dog with her I trusted she would follow all the instructions I'd given her and our dog couldn't be happier and more satisfied. She took some awesome pictures and always kept us up to date with how our dog was going. When I came to pick her, our dog had grown bigger, was happier than ever and had a perfect groomed coat of fur, after a great bath Tara had given her. I cannot stress enough how much I recommend Tara as a dog sitter. I will definitely come back next time I need our dog to be minded for. Thank you Tara!
