Dog Boarding
Oscar, 14-12-2023
I sent my corgi for dog boarding with Agui recently. My family and I definitely felt fully satisfied and happy with the experience. She was really kind and patient during all meet and greet sessions towards our pet and showed love and care. She sent many picutres during the boarding too! When she came back Agui even gave us fruitful advice for taking care of our furry friend better and she even taught our dog a new trick! She brought our dog for walks multiple times daily and she also bathed, cut nails and combed our dog's fur. Highly recommend you to select Agui as your dog care taker. Overall Agui showed love care and patience to our pet and she'll very much take care of any other too!

Yoonxin was one of the best family that my dog had! From the moment I met Yoonxin, she and her family incl. the resident dog exhibited a remarkable level of warmth and responsibility in handling my pet's needs. During the boarding of my dog's stay, Yoonxin provided exceptional care, ensuring my dog's routine maintained including proper diet, exercises and affection. She even went above by sending me regular updates and photos, which assured me that my dog was in good hands. What truly stands out is Yoonxin's genuine love and attention to detail. She treated my dog as if she were her own. Her resident dog also welcomed my dog so well that my dog felt lots of excitements. If you're searching for a reliable, caring and responsible dog sitter who treats your furry friend like family, Yoonxin is unquestionably the one you're looking for. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to entrust my dog to her again in the future. She's simply the best!
