Outstanding Care and Peace of Mind - Highly Recommended! I recently had the pleasure of entrusting Alex to take care of my beloved dog, and I cannot recommend him enough. From the moment we met, I knew my furry friend was in excellent hands. Alex's exceptional level of care, attention to detail, and passion for dogs truly set him apart. I felt at ease knowing that my dog would receive the utmost care and love during our time apart. Alex's extensive knowledge and experience in doggy care was evident from the start. He ensured that my dog received plenty of walks and spent quality time outside, providing her with the exercise and stimulation she needed. His expertise in making dogs feel comfortable and secure was immediately apparent when we handed over our puppy. Upon my dog's return, I was overjoyed to find her calm, content, and genuinely happy. As it was her first time staying away, Alex's updates and regular photos of my dog looking relaxed and at ease were tremendously reassuring. It was evident that she was enjoying her break as much as I was, thanks to the dedicated care and attention she received. Prior to my dog's stay, Alex took the time to gather comprehensive information about her daily routine and requirements. This not only showed his genuine commitment to providing personalised care but also ensured that my dog's specific needs were met throughout her stay. From feeding schedules to exercise preferences, Alex carefully implemented all the details we discussed, resulting in a truly relaxing and enjoyable experience for my dog. Overall, my experience with Alex was exceptional, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking peace of mind and top-notch care for their furry companions. His passion, expertise, and commitment to the well-being of the dogs he cares for are truly commendable. Without a doubt, I will be booking with Alex again for any future dog sitting needs. Thank you, Alex, for taking such good care of my dog and providing an outstanding pet sitting experience!

I recently entrusted Maryana with the care of Betsy, while I was away, and I cannot express how pleased I am with the exceptional service she provided. Maryana's genuine love for dogs was evident from the moment we met, and it immediately put my mind at ease knowing that Betsy would be in good hands. Throughout Betsy's stay, Maryana went above and beyond to keep me informed and reassured about how things were going. Her regular messages detailing the day's activities and accompanied by adorable photos of Betsy helped me feel connected and confident that Betsy was having a fantastic time. Maryana's dedication to ensuring Betsy's well-being was truly commendable. It was evident that she personalized her care to meet Betsy's needs, from playtime to cuddles and everything in between. I have no doubt that I'll be choosing Maryana's services again in the future whenever I need to be away. Betsy seemed not only content but genuinely happy in Maryana's care, and I am confident that she formed a special bond with her. I can imagine Betsy being overjoyed at the prospect of returning to Maryana's care, making the decision for future dog sitting needs a no-brainer. If you're looking for a dog sitter who genuinely loves and cares, Maryana is the one to choose. Her passion, attention to detail, and excellent communication make her stand out, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone in need of a trustworthy and caring dog sitter. Thank you, Maryana, for providing Betsy with a home away from home!
