Dog Boarding
Paula, 03-06-2022
I’m very picky when I was deciding on a pet sitter as it is the first time Beanie will be away from us. After meeting with Nikhil and the whole fam, and their resident dog Littlefoot, Beanie felt at home and was playing around the house already. They have a very spacious place so she enjoyed running around and playing. Plus point is they only board one dog at a time so the price is worth it coz Beanie will receive all the attention and will not be left never unsupervised. During boarding, Nikhil and Rohit not only looked after Beanie but they cared for her too. They provided regular updates too that’s why I could tell that Beanie had a fantastic stay and loved spending time with them - in fact after a couple of days, I was told that Nikhil woke up and Beanie was sleeping next to him on his bed (basically Beanie preferred to sleep next to Nikhil instead of sleeping on her own dogbed!)😆 Littlefoot was a great companion too, she’s well behaved no matter how much Beanie bugged her at home. Overall, the experience was great - they are highly recommended pet sitters! Now I have peace of mind knowing that I can count on them to care for my furbaby on my next overseas trip. Very thankful for everything!

We are very grateful to Kian Min and his wife and son! Kian Min is a professional pet sitter. We used home bording for the first time - Ken, a 13-year-old Papillon, has separation anxiety after a lockdown. Kian Min and his family did not leave Ken alone all the time for 6 nights, which made him feel much more secure. So Ken did not lose his appetite due to stress. Kian Min was patient when Ken first started marking and waited until Ken stopped marking. He told me every day how Ken was doing and sent me pictures. We could see from them that Ken was in a happy state. Ken seemed to follow Kian Min around, which was proof that Ken trusted and loved him. He walked Ken twice a day and also took Ken outside day and night for potty. Ken has long hair, so we asked him to be brushed every day after his walks. He was carefully groomed and came home with a beautiful coat. We were worried about leaving Ken with someone else as he has separation anxiety and is a senior dog, but Kian Min has been great with our requests and is a great sitter. We have another appointment booked in six months' time and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a pet sitter.
