Dog Boarding
Fabian, 20-07-2021
Debbie and family were great in taking care 3 of our furkids! one of them recently went blind and she went the extra mile to ensure to give special attention to my special furkid. They also made sure to give them walks more frequently than we expected! (you can imagine the horror of having to bring 3 furkids out for a walk; 2 puppy-like & 1 blind). Photo and video updates were also given which is really important in giving us pawrents a peace of mind. All in all, service was amazing and value-for-money, she charges cheaper than most but loves your furkid all the same. One minor thing to note is to take your own initiative as a pawrent to tell her what you expect or need and she will be happy to deliver; in terms of initiative it's not 100% as she is new to this which is understandable. Her and her family are very kind people who have a willing heart. My furkids came back happy and well taken care of! Although it was only one night, she knew and paid attention to all 3 of their personalities! Warm-hearted and a very kind family. Thank you Debbie and family! :)

Acelyn did an excellent job taking care of Goldie! She's very responsive and kept me up to date on Goldie everyday. Her Japanese Spitz Haku has been a great company of Goldie too! Thank you for providing peace of mind and great service!
