Dog Boarding
Rose, 20-05-2024
Absolutely thrilled with Paul and his partner as our dog sitters! From the start, Paul was extremely communicative and flexible, putting our minds at ease. It was our first time leaving our dogs overnight, and we were quite anxious, but the experience turned out to be fantastic. Drop-off was seamless, and it was evident that Paul is both easy-going and knowledgeable about dog care. His place is secure, with enough room for our small dogs to go outside. We received photo updates of our pups relaxing comfortably on the couch, which reassured us that they were in great hands. Throughout the entire experience, we felt completely comfortable and confident in their care. Paul and his partner genuinely love all animals and provided the best care for our puppies. We returned home with happy puppies, and we will definitely be using their services again. Highly recommend Paul and his partner for anyone in need of reliable and caring dog sitters!

Juanita was such a wonderful dog sitter. She made herself available to us when we needed a dog sitter last minute, and set regular updates for the 4 days we were away. Having not used a dog sitter before, we were nervous about leaving our dogs with someone they hadn’t met. Juanita was amazing. She sent us updates of the dogs who had happily settled in before we had even got to the airport. Our dogs were sad to leave their new friend. And we are already planning when we can organise another ‘holiday at Juanita’s’ for them. Thank you again!

Where will my dog be staying?
