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.

I found Isabelle to be a wonderful, kind, caring dog sitter. She really looked after our labrador puppy perfectly and kept in great communication, sent videos, texts and photos. Our dog was extremely well loved and looked after while in Isabelles care and I would highly recommend her as a dog sitter, if you can get a spot with her!
