Dog Boarding
Theodore, 14-10-2021
Randall replies almost extremely promptly and timely always. He invited me to his home to check the place out and meet with his family members before allowing my 8 year old Beagle, Buddy, to be looked after. Randall has formal training in the army in the K9 unit and I was extremely confident that Buddy would be left in safe and capable hands. Randall took him out to the beach and was walked not only by him, but his lovely family members as well. Buddy thoroughly enjoyed and felt comfortable in his care and I was very relieved that the dog sitting was mutual between Buddy and his family :) Randal is a brilliant and responsible dog sitter and I'll definitely be getting him to look after Buddy if need be again and I am confident Buddy feels the same as well! Thank you Randall and family for being such gracious and warm hosts to Buddy :)

This is our first time as pet owners and it was also the first time that we stayed away from our dog for more than a few hours. Our dog is still very young so naturally, we were very apprehensive about leaving her at stranger's house. But Rohini eased all our anxiety when we met her. She has been very understanding of our concerns and very accommodating of our requirements. We have had a great experience and I can say the same for our pup who was very well cared for. Rohini is definitely our first choice for whenever we need someone to care for our pup 🐶
