Vuyelwa did a great job taking care of our rambunctious and special needs dogs. When we got home, both dogs were their happy, normal selves, and both took a nice long nap the rest of the day. We're planning a week long trip in a few weeks and already have Vuyelwa booked for that stay over.
Vuyelwa was available and took care of Chester very well.
ViVi and her family are great. I've left my dog Kooper with them twice, once on short notice, and they were very accommodating. She has a large backyard for my little dog and Kooper always has companions so it's nice since he loves other people and dog. I'm also 100% certain her daughters spoil Kooper whenever he's there. If you see scratches no ViVi's front door, it's because Kooper has pawed it every times - can't wait to go inside!
Vivi watched our puppy for 4 nights and I was extremely happy, as was Roxy. she felt right at home immediately and was very happy when we picked her up! Vivi sent us photos, got her some treats, and took great care of our pup. I will be contacting her for our next trip! I highly recommend her!
Vuyelwa took great care of our young puppy, just like she was her own pup! We will definitely be scheduling in the future puppy vacay with Vuyelwa.
Great first Dogvacay experience. It looks like Benny had a great time and didn't want to leave. Vuyelwa sent photos, which made me feel at ease.
Vuyelwa is friendly, flexible and accomodating to my needs. According to the pictures sent, my dog seems to be doing fine. Thank you.
Vuyelwa posted pictures every day which was helpful since this is the first time I have been away from my dog for an extended time. She even bathed my dog without my request so I had a clean and sweet smelling dog after being away for 2 weeks. My dog seemed to have enjoyed himself with Vuyelwa and her daughters. I would definitely use Vuyelwa's services again.
This was my first time using this service and it was amazing.Vuyelwa was perfect. She sent pictures updating me on my baby's vacay. He was so exhausted when ge came home thatvI know he had a great time. I recommend Vuyelwa she was the best.
Vuyelwa was a great host. From the meet-n-greet to the stay, I always felt at ease and Buhle felt right at home. I know that Boo had a great time and felt comfortable because she actually ate her food. Any other time my family goes out of town, Boo doesn't eat part of the days. We also recieved picture updates regularly to ease my fur-mama's mind. We would definitely use Vuyelwa's place again if she'll have us. I love knowing that we found such an awesome place and had such a great experience.
A really great awesome host who accepted a 10 day request at the last minute during our Thanksgiving travels. Dexter loved his stay with this great family. Communication was perfect, daily updates with pictures. She even when out of her way to buy Dexter treats. Would definitely reschedule again in the future. Thank you so much!
Vuyelwa did a really awesome job watching my high energy Husky/Sheppard mix. She sent me daily pics keeping me updated on how he was doing and when I picked him up he came back smiling almost better then when I dropped him off. I would definitely use her services again if shes available.
Gunner LOVED his stay at ViVi's! She even gave him a bath the day we returned from our trip. He definitely loved spending time with her daughters. Absolutely recommend her services and am looking forward to booking with her again next time we go out of town.
Overall great experience! Thank you for watching our four legged child.
I have a happy senior yellow lab. When her tail is wagging and she has a smile then I know she has had a good time. That is how she was when I left her and when I picked her up. She seemed at ease and happy to be with Vuyelwa's daughters. I received photos of Lola at her home and there were no problems I heard about. I would recommend this sitter.
Plus she responded very quickly when I wanted a meet and greet.
My dogs came home happy and exhausted - like they had to recover from their own vacation. The family participated in caring for them, which made it less stressful for my dogs to be separated for our family. We will try to book our next vacations with them, as it was a good mix for my dogs. Thanks you, Vuyelwa and family, for making the details of out of town travel less stressful for me and my furry family partners!
She was Great. Kept me updated with Pictures and videos. Would definitely be coming back. Thanks for the stay.
Vuyelwa was such a great host! My puppy Max had such a good time on vacay at her house. Vuyelwa and her family took such good care of him and he was so happy when I picked him up. I would highly recommend her as a host!
We had Vuyelwa watch our little guy for the day when we had a Six Flags day planned during a trip. Rather than leaving him home for the whole trip we were able to leave him for the time we spent at the park.
Vuyelwa was very accommodating and was able to accept our request just a couple of days before booking. Also, with an earlier drop off time and a later pick up time, we were able to maximize our day at the park.
We were greeted by 2 adorable little girls that were very excited to have Maverick around for the day. Also, her mother who was also very sweet and seemingly excited to have Maverick join them.
We received photo updates during the day which are ALWAYS very nice to get when we're wondering how things are going.
I would definitely recommend Vuyelwa to anyone looking for a reliable and very nice family to look after their pet.
Thank you!!
