Dog Boarding
Cherlyn, 22-02-2021
Glad is a patient and caring sitter. My friend and I have been engaging his services for about a month now for both Riley and Snickers. He genuinely cares about dogs and pays extra care to their needs from dietary requirements, daily habits & needs. The dogs even get multiple walks daily and trips to the dog park where they get to socialize and play with the other dogs. What really makes me love placing the dogs there is that even his entire family loves them! My mind is at total ease whenever the dogs are under their care. There will always be someone around to watch over the dogs at home. I would definitely recommend Glad to those of you who are looking for a sitter for your doggos. I'm 100% sure they would be taken care of and loved by Glad and his whole family (even Hayley, their own family dog)!

Lola is amazing and by far the most professional pet sitter we have had for our fur baby Ziggy! She is extremely kind and nurturing and went out of her way to ensure Ziggy was comfortable in his new environment. Lola’s communication is exceptional and I was kept up to date with lots of reassuring videos and photos throughout his stay! I highly recommend Lola and have already rebooked! Lola is a star ⭐️
