Exceptional Dog Sitting Experience with Johana My family and I recently had the pleasure of entrusting our beloved dog Molly to Johana's care, and I cannot express enough gratitude for the wonderful experience we had. From the moment we stepped into her home, Johana's warmth and friendliness immediately put us at ease. She took the time to give us a thorough tour, ensuring we felt confident and reassured about where our furry friend would be staying. Throughout our vacation, Johana went above and beyond to keep us connected with Molly. She sent numerous videos and photos, which not only put our minds at ease but also brought immense joy to our family. It was incredibly comforting to see our dog happy and well-cared for while we were away. Johana's dedication to our Molly's well-being was evident in every aspect of her care routine. She took Molly for frequent walks and engaged her in playful activities throughout the day, ensuring she remained happy and active. Additionally, Johana demonstrated remarkable flexibility with our return times, which alleviated any stress associated with travel delays. Upon our return, we were greeted with the same warmth and hospitality as when we first arrived. It was clear that our dog had formed a genuine bond with Johana, which was heartwarming to see. Knowing that we had found a sitter who not only cared for but truly loved our pet filled us with immense gratitude. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Johana as a dog sitter. Her exceptional level of care, warmth, and flexibility surpassed our expectations, and we look forward to entrusting Molly to her care again in the future. Johana's genuine love for animals shines through in everything she does, and we are truly grateful to have found her.

Carolina is wonderful, the best dog sitter! She has taken care of Lulo with love and patience. It is not leaving your dog with someone else, it is leaving him with someone who treats him as if you were yourself: she walks him, plays with him and dedicates time, love and care to him. Carolina gives you the confidence and peace of mind you need when you have to leave your dog in someone else's care. Communication with her is continuous, she is always ready to send photos and videos and keep you updated on how your dog is doing. It has been a pleasure, both for Lulo and for us. Thanks for everything!
