I have no words to describe how amazing Sanika and her boyfriend are! My pup didn’t want to leave their house when we pick him up! She updated me through out the day and he seemed to be having a lot of fun. She even gave him a bath on his stay. Will recommend Sanika with my eyes closed! Thanks so much Sanika!

Gail was wonderful with Joy. I received pictures of Joy and a text on how Joy was doing. This was my 1st time using Gail and I was very happy with her care for my fur bady. I would recommend Gail service and I definitely will be coming back to her. Thank you so much!!

Shelby was absolutely amazing! I just relocated back to VA from FL and was not pleased with the boarding facilities in the area. I had to go on a week long work trip to Texas and she kept me updated more than expected! She held my doggie like a baby the entire time! So grateful for her being such a great doggie sitter. She really loved on my baby. Shelby is stuck with us now, FOREVAAAAAAA!

Marina was absolutely amazing. My German shepherd can be a handful at times and she handled him beautifully. She took such great care of him and sent me plenty of photos/updates. She treated my dog as one of her own and I was so comfortable the whole time I was away. I highly recommend her and will be using her again when we need boarding.

Julie and Ken were the best in nurturing our dog while we were out of town. They kept us well informed about how our dog was doing, provided frequent photos, and made us feel comfortable that she was in good hands.

As our dogs are getting older, they don't do well in a large group boarding setting anymore. We decided to give in-home boarding a try with Geneive and could not be happier! She took such excellent care of them and kept us updated with pictures the whole time. We knew they were comfortable and truly being treated like part of the family. They came home clean, calm, and happy! We will definitely be repeat customers!

I was extremely nervous about leaving my puppy with someone for the very first time ever, however Corey made this over night stay very easy and stress free! He was very calm with Chico which made it this experience so awesome! Chico had a ball! All hands down I would recommend Corey!

Cori was so great with my pup! She sent me updates and sent me the cutest pics of her! I didn’t even feel anxious leaving my dog with her because I knew she was in good hands! Murphy looked so happy when she came back, I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for someone to care for their pet :)

Cheri is absolutely fabulous! (I almost don't want to share because I want to keep her to myself!) She kept my 2 Cavachons - one who is very timid - and my girls LOVED Cheri! They were as comfortable in her home as they are in mine (and it didn't take long). Cheri sent me photos and little updates every day I was away which was just delightful. When I came to pick them up, the girls were excited to see me, but appropriately said, "Goodbye," to Cheri with additional pets and my shy one even rolled on her back for one more tummy rub!! I am so grateful to have found a homey, safe, and loving place for my pups to get individual attention while I'm away.

Claudia was fantastic with my pup! She sent pictures and videos everyday and was so communicative. She gave Brady massages and snuggled with him, which helped so much since he can be such a nervous boy. I was able to fully enjoy my trip without worrying about the dog because he was in such good hands. I highly recommend!
