Dog Boarding
Victoria, 09-08-2023
Igor and Ella are warm and open people! I've contacted them very spontaneous, as my dog sitter has canceled and I had to find someone the same day (!) for the period of 3 weeks (!) I was afraid it's a hard thing to do, as the dog sitter has to be very experienced to get a new dog for such a long period of time. Igor and Ella replied straight away and were kind enough to go and pick up the dog, although it was kinda far from where they live. They have dogs themselves and are very experienced, have a true professional as well as individual approach to every dog. Füsili and Ella could find such a great connection from the very beginning! Despite of the fact, that Ella and Igor have their own dogs in the house - they gave Füsili as much attention as if it is their own dog too. Ella kept sending us pictures where they were walking outside, taking a nap and hugging 🤗 with our beautiful Irish setter. Amazing connection and treatment. When I will need a dog sitter for Füsili- Ella and Igor will be my first choice! I 1000% recommend them 🙏🏻

I had an incredible experience with Daria as my dog sitter. From the moment I met her, I could tell she genuinely cared for my dog, Luigi. She went above and beyond to ensure Luigi was well taken care of and happy during my time away. Daria regularly sent me adorable pictures of Luigi, and it warmed my heart to see him so content and joyful in her company. Not only did Daria provide the necessary walks and feeding, but she also took Luigi on exciting adventures. I was thrilled when she surprised him with a picnic outing! It showed me that Daria understood Luigi's needs for both physical exercise and mental stimulation. I can't thank Daria enough for her exceptional care, love, and attention to Luigi. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a dog sitter for anyone seeking a responsible and compassionate caregiver.
