Cooper had an AWESOME visit with Tess. She is amazing with dogs and her passion for animals really shows. She sent lots of pictures and videos of our pup with her sweet boy Loki throughout his stay. Cooper came home tired out and so happy. I 100% recommend Tess - she is an awesome sitter!

Tess is great! Both our dogs took to her immediately at our initial meet and greet. She is extremely responsive and provided constant updates during our dogs stay with her. They had a great stay. Will definitely book with her again.

Tess was WONDERFUL! Lots of pics and lots of love for our sweet pup, who immediately made fast friends with Tess' dog. She didn't want to leave when we picked her up. We'll definitely be going back. Thanks, Tess!
