Dog Boarding

Noam is an excellent, reliable, and confident dog sitter. He took care of my dog Henry during my 11 day-trip abroad. It was the first time I was leaving my dog for such a long time and I really felt that he was in good hands from day 1. Noam sent frequent updates and pictures. He is clearly a professional dog sitter and knows how to handle a pack. My dog was happy, running and playing with other dogs while I was away. Thanks again!

The biggest worry for any puppy owner who has a dog that is a "work in progress", is that it would not be possible to leave your puppy with anyone else without behavioural regressions. Bartek was, however, recommended by my puppy trainer as a really great dog sitter, so Lucy had her first stay away from home. Updates from Bartek throughout the week were great. We could see that Lucy was relaxed, happy and being well taken care of. She also had some good social time with other dogs in the care of Bartek, which is reflected in her more calm and relaxed demeanor since we got her back. I don't think I'm imagining that Lucy has improved in her walking and calmness, which is really great for everyone. I would love for Lucy to stay with Bartek again if he remains available in the future.
