Maria war super! Sie war sehr nett und geduld zu meinen alter Hund. Die Kommunikation mit ihr war sehr einfach. Vor der Reise hat sie sehr einfach einen Triff geplant, uns zu kennenzulernen und alle den Hundepflege zu organizieren. Danach jeden Tag hat sie schöne Bilder und Videos des Hunds geschicken. Sie hat alle meine spezifische Instruktionen und Anfragen gefoglt. Und mein Hund war ganz froh als ich zurück nach Hause gekommen bin. Irgendwann man einen Hundes- oder Haustiersitter sucht, empfehle ich gerne Maria. Maria was great! She was very nice and patient with my old dog. Communication with her was very easy. Before the trip she very easily planned a meeting to get to know us and organize all the dog care. After that every day she sent nice pictures and videos of the dog. She followed all of my specific instructions and requests. And my dog was very happy when I came back home. Anytime you are looking for a dog or pet sitter, I would happily recommend Maria.

Lavinia is a wonderful cat sitter. She took care of my Pebbles for 8 days, which is quite long for a first time, but no worries Lavinia is great. My cat needs a bit more attention than a regular cat I guess, since she is a solo cat. Lavinia did spent a lot of time with her, so she didn't feel so alone. She entertained her and was willing to go an extra mile to make her happy. Pebbles did miss us, but she was her usual self within a day after we come back. This is the best compliment she can make. Pebbles is very sensitive and we can easily make out, if she's not feeling so great. So if you are looking for an amazing cat sitter, search no further, with Lavinia you found the right one!
