Dog Boarding

We had the most amazing experience with Can as our dog sitter! Leaving our beloved samoyed in someone else's care was a bit nerve-wracking (especially for the first time in Berlin), but Can put our minds at ease from the moment we met him. Can's love for dogs is evident in everything he does. Our furry DogSon was not just taken care of, but he was showered with affection, attention, and all the belly rubs he could handle. Can went above and beyond to make sure our samoyed felt right at home, sending us regular updates and adorable pics and videos. Not only is Can incredibly reliable and trustworthy, but he also has a natural knack for understanding dogs' needs. Our dog came back home happy and maybe even a little bit spoiled (in the best way possible haha). If you're looking for a dog sitter who will treat your furry friend like family, look no further than Can. We can't recommend him enough, and we'll definitely be entrusting our dog's care to him again in the future. Thank you, Can, for being the pawsitively perfect pet sitter!❤️🐾

Julieta took care of our dog for a long weekend while we travelled on holiday. She was very prompt and accurate in her communication while planning the handover. Our dog loved her from the start. Her place is clean and spacious and our dog was happy to chill in her room which had lots of sunlight. Julieta in person was exactly matching her profile description. She was professional and friendly and it was obvious how much she loves animals very much. She was very comfortable handling our dog although he has special needs (he comes from a shelter) and can be quite a handful with new people but she had no problems at all. During his stay, Julieta was regularly sending pics and videos of our dog. She made sure he got his walks and playtime outside. She was always reachable whenever we messaged her and was responsive all the time. We had a lot of rules for our dog (how to feed him, what to do or not to do outside) and Julieta was happy to take care of all of them. In the end we were able to focus on our holiday because we felt our dog is safe and loved while staying with Julieta. When it was time to go our dog was happy and healthy and did not want to leave her place and we know he misses her very much. We would certainly book her as a dog sitter and highly recommend her. Thank you so much Julieta!
