Kleo was absolutely amazing. We were nervous to leave our beloved Maisie for the first time but we shouldn’t have been. From start to finish, Kleo was brilliant. She sent us pictures regularly, brought Maisie on lots of walks and was so kind and affectionate to our dog. Maisie had a great time. We really couldn’t recommend Kleo enough. So kind and attentive.
