Our Pom has just come back from a 3 night stay with Maria and her family. I think it was the best decision I ever made… Xavi was so so happy there! Maria sent photos and a fantastic video of him playing with her son. They were having so much fun and looked so cute I had to keep replaying it 😂. Maria and her family have a fantastic bond with all the dogs they care for, which I witnessed on the day we did the introductory visit. Xavi was so happy there that we will definitely send him again, and I wholeheartedly recommend her as a dog minder. THANK YOU MARIA 🥰🥰🥰

Our Pomeranian has had his first stay Maria, and it went fantastically well. She was so so good with him. She sent photos and a video of them out on the green having fun. He was completely pooped when I picked him up, happy, and fell asleep in the car on the way home. He was so well taken care of (Maria is amazingly good with dogs) that I’ve booked him in for 3 nights in two weeks time. A big big thank you Maria.

What a first class host! Maria and family hosted Archie our miniature schnauzer over Easter. Archie was treated as a member of the family and was relaxed from the very first minute. It felt a huge sense of relief to see how happy and well cared for Archie was. I definitely recommend Maria to anyone. 🌟🐾
