If you are in need for a trustworthy pet sitter, just speak with Vineet. We booked with Vineet for the first time and he was very attentive since the first minute. Easily arranged a meet and greet so that we could know us before the real booking. During the booking he always sent information and pictures about the pet behavior, requested for additional infos and even if he needed to do something special in ore or other occasion. But what best describes Vineet as a trustworthy pet sitter is that our pet stayed secure, comfortable and well taken care of. I can only assume that our pet liked to be with Vineet because he showed some pictures of when our dog jumped voluntarily to his lap so that he could be cuddled :) In short: Thanks Vineet. We will be returning in the future.

Daniela is an exceptional pet sitter who has cared for our 12-year-old Beagle, Hippie, with extraordinary love and attention. Despite his special needs for daily medication, Daniela managed his care excellently. Her reliability, expertise, and empathy greatly impressed us. Daniela’s communication is consistently clear and timely, enhancing our trust in her care. We are truly grateful that we chose Daniela and highly recommend her to any pet owner. Hippie is in the best hands with her, and we feel relieved and happy to have found such a dedicated, trustworthy, and caring sitter for him.
