As usual Briana was awesome! I think Kahlo may even have more fun there then she does at home. She gets so much love at Briana’s and is always happy to see her. She also made us another cute piece of puppy art!

Kyra was so awesome with my sweetie pie while I was away! Her and her husband welcomed her into their home like she was their own and sweetie & myself really appreciated that! She kept me updated with pics and asked lots of questions to make sure sweetie was all set. Will deff be booking with kyra again when I need dog services! 100% recommend!

We absolutely loved having our Weimaraner, Hollis stay with Jacquelyn and her family! We felt so comfortable leaving her and Hollis enjoyed her time with them as well! There was never a doubt that she was safe and in excellent hands with them. We will definitely be rebooking with Jacquelyn every time we need to leave our Hollis.

Meghan was great!! She had great communication, was flexible with us on our drop off/pick up times, and provided many updates throughout the stay. There wasn't any doubt that our dog wasn't being well taken care of there. We would use Meghan again and also recommend to others!

Tashia took great care of our 14yr old dog while we were away. She needs a bit more attention and has a routine for eating, pills and going outside. We set up a meet and greet and Tashia took extreme care in meeting and getting to know our dog’s habits. Tashia sent pictures and updates while we were away to ease our concerns. Highly recommend Tashia.

She was very communicative and quick to respond to questions. I got a lot of videos and pictures of my dog Burton while I was gone and he was well looked after! Would definitely use her services again in the future.

Mia is our first pet & this is our first boarding experience. Casey & her family has been so amazing with our pet. Mia loved being there for a week & was terribly missing them after we picked her up, that tells what a fun time she had there. Casey will always be our first choice if she is available. Thank you !

Jessica is a terrific dog sitter. We rarely leave our dog, so when we do it is nice to feel comfortable leaving her with a trusted sitter. Our dog spent her weekend away from us playing with Jessica's dog and being treated like family. She is worn out from all of the fun she had. We will be using Jessica again!

Odin, our Great Dane loved his stay this past week! I was out of the country on a vacation, and Alysha made sure to provide pictures and feedback to me the entire time regardless of my bad connection. I also had to change the schedule of Odin’s stay because my flight was changed (you know how travel is lol) but she was super flexible!! Definitely will be booking again & recommending her to others!

Cathy put me at ease dropping off my two Bostons. She is full of knowledge and asks questions to make sure the boys were able to transition with ease. She gave me updates and many pictures to let me know the boys were relaxed and doing well. She definitely will be used in the future ❤️
