Tove is truly a fantastic dog sitter. Bill our Cocker Spaniel spent a week with her and her charming Evy. It was really great to see the regular videos she sent us of the 2 dogs playing, every day I got updates. Also unfortunately Bill has been sick the last 2 days, she did not hesitate to visit the veterinarian and took care of our dog as if it were hers. THANK YOU so much and I really recommend Tove as a fantastic dog sitter
