Dog Boarding
Roberta, 03-07-2023
Coco has stayed with Geert & Vera multiple times and I can confidently and wholeheartedly recommended them. They are kind people who are doing this for their love for dogs and therefore devote maximum attention to your pet and their needs. As someone who is always anxious to leave my dog, I calmly leave Coco with Geert & Vera as I know they are taking the best care of him - they always ensure that Coco eats well, receives his medicine on time, brushes him regularly and ensures that he has a lot of playtime (including mental games) and attention. Geert & Vera also take dogs everyday for long walks (parks, forests, etc.) so you can be sure your dog is having a great time. Moreover, you can always trust on your dog receiving fantastic care with Geert & Vera as they always keep you informed about any dogs issues - for example I was immediately informed that Coco vomited and as they are expert dog owners they knew well how to take care of it. Geert & Vera also provide frequent updates on Coco (photos and videos) and I always see Coco being very happy and constantly waging his tail. Geert & Vera’s two very social and well-behaved dogs are excellent company for very social and active dogs like Coco.

Exceptional Dog Sitter - Highly Recommended! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We recently had the pleasure of working with Dinka, and I cannot express how grateful we are for her outstanding care with our dog and our furry family member couldn’t have been in better hands! Dinka’s warm and friendly demeanor instantly put both us and our belove dog at ease. It’s clear that she not only understands dogs but also has a deep love and respect for them, which made us feel confident in her right from the start. During our time away, Dinka went above and beyond to ensure our dog was happy and comfortable. She provided regular updates, including photos and videos, which gave us peace of mind and allowed us to see how much fun our pup was having. It was evident that our dog was having a blast. We returned to a happy dog who clearly had a fantastic time during our absence. If you’re searching for a reliable, compassionate, and skilled dog sitter, look no further! We wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone in need. Thank you again, Ayoub, Nadia, and Tao
