Dog Boarding

We wanted to express our heartfelt appreciation for the exceptional care you provided to our beloved dog during his recent stay with you and your family. As a pet owner, it can be quite challenging to leave our cherished companions in the care of others, but you and your family’s dedication and attentiveness truly put my mind at ease. From the moment we dropped off our dog, we were greeted with warmth and enthusiasm, and it was evident that your family genuinely loves and understands dogs. The cozy and welcoming environment you have created in your home made it feel like a true home away from home for our dog. We were thankful to receive regular updates, including photos and messages, which allowed us to see how well our dog was adjusting to his new surroundings. It was obvious that he was finishing his every meals, had regular exercises and a comfy bed to wrap up to sleep. Our dog can be a bit of picky about his meals but you always made sure our dog finished his meals. Moreover, when you heard it was our dog’s adoption birthday during the boarding period, your family even bought a birthday cake for him and celebrated with him. That really touched us when we are thousands of miles away and we really appreciated the thoughtfulness of this. The level of professionalism and expertise demonstrated by your family was truly remarkable. In summary, we cannot thank you enough for the exceptional care and attention your whole family provided to our dog during his stay with your family. Your genuine love for dogs and your commitment to their well-being is truly commendable. I wholeheartedly recommend your dog boarding services to anyone in need of a caring and reliable home away from home for their beloved pets. Please know that your dedication and the positive impact you have on the lives of both dog and their owners was greatly appreciated. Warm regards,

This is our first booking with Shagun. We had the absolute pleasure of entrusting our beloved pet to her, and we cannot express enough how grateful we are for the exceptional care she provided. From the moment we met, it was clear that Shagun possessed a genuine passion for animals, treating our furry friend like a member of her own family. What truly stood out about Shagun was her commitment to following our instructions. She took the time to understand every aspect of our pet's routine, dietary needs, and any special requirements. It was incredibly comforting to know that Shagun not only adhered to our instructions but went the extra mile to ensure our pet's comfort and happiness. Throughout our time apart, Shagun maintained regular communication with us, providing updates, photos, and videos of our pet's activities. These thoughtful gestures not only put our minds at ease but also allowed us to stay connected and feel included in our pet's experiences. It was evident that Shagun understood the importance of that bond between pets and their owners, even in our absence. Furthermore, Shagun displayed the utmost professionalism and reliability throughout the entire period. She was punctual, responsive, and proactive in addressing any questions or concerns that arose. It was evident that she takes her role as a pet sitter seriously and genuinely loves what she does. We wholeheartedly recommend Shagun. Her attention to detail, caring nature, and consistent communication surpassed all our expectations. With her, you can trust that your pet will be in the best hands possible, receiving love, respect, and top-notch care. Thank you, Shagun, for being such an exceptional pet sitter and for providing us with peace of mind during our time away.
